Stampin' Up! Hues of Happiness ~ thanks

So, if you have been following my blog this week, you might remember that early in the week I said I didn't want to cut up my beautiful Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper to cut the flowers out.  Well, I gave in and used the coordinating dies to cut out a couple of flowers and a few leaves.  I have to say I'm very happy with the result.  What do you think?  

Using the dies to quickly cut out the flowers and leaves saved me enough time to play around with some other techniques with this card.  I used the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder to emboss the background panel.  Plus, after using the 4th largest Stitched Rectangle Die to cut out a piece of Flirty Flamingo Cardstock, I added Mango Melody ink to it with a Blending Brush, giving it something of an ombre effect.  Then, using a Water Painter, I added a few drops of water the piece, giving it a 'rained' on effect!  

I had so much fun creating this card!  Now I'm not sure why I was so hesitant to use the dies to cut out elements of this DSP.  Just kidding...yes, I do!  It's because the paper is so gorgeous I had a hard time getting started cutting it.  It wasn't so painful once I got started!  PLUS, we are early in the Stampin' Up! Catalog year, so I know I have PLENTY of time to purchase more of this DSP if I run out! ;)

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
