Supplies used: Kaleidoscope Paper Packet, Cardstock (Gypsy, Pixie), White Cards & Envelopes Value Pack, Diamonds Are Forever Stamp Set, Inks (Gypsy, Pixie), Silver Shimmer Trim, Pink Shimmer Trim, Sparkles Clear Assortment, Quatrefoil Embossing Folder, Confetti Stars Embossing Folder, and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Dazzling Diamonds.

Tip: I spray a mist of water on my cardstock before embossing.  This is a good thing to do when you do not want the white core to show through.

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Happy Times Paper Packet, Happy Times Stamp Set, White Cards & Envelopes Value Pack, Celebrate! Stamp Set, White Daisy Cardstock, Inks (Pomegranate, Fern, Canary, Smoothie), Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge (for cutting the 1″ circle), Scallop Border Punch, White & Gold Ribbon, Gold Metallic Marker, Flamingo Dots, Glitter Glitz Gel (retired), and Gold Sequins Assortment.

This is a wonderful set of cards that you can make using 1/2 packet of the Happy Times Paper Packet or you can use the whole paper packet like I did and make two of each card.  You could use whatever embellishments you have on hand to add to the cards.  I used Gold Sequins, White & Gold Ribbon, Flamingo Dots, and the Gold Metallic Marker.

These cards were created with a card kit that I had a duplicate of but instead of making another set of cards the same I changed out the paper and used different colors for the stamping.  This was so much fun!  I loved these cards the first time around and they turned out just as good with the “new” paper!
