Today we are sneak-peeking these sets:

My first card is a bit ahead of the game, but every once in a while I suprise myself like that and PRE-prepare! (Even though when the day gets closer, I usually forget where I stashed whatever I’d made…sigh.) TBH, it was the sentiment included in the Happy/Coordinates stamp set that made me look at the striped cup with a hmmm and a little side-eye!

Pulling out the reds and blues, in both cardstocks and Copic markers was some rare fun, as this isn’t a color scheme I’d normally gravitate to, but I do love me some loud, hot, sticky, happy, family oriented 4th of July celebrations!

I colored the cup full of flowers in a red, white and blue color theme, then die cut it with the coordinating die. I also used the Happy Confetti Cuts to die cut the HAPPY alphas and background shape and adhered them together and stamped the Independence Day sentiment onto vellum paper with Versamark ink and heat set with black embossing powder.

I embellished with some coordinating colored sequins and adhered everything to an A2 sized card base.

Next up is a slimline card made by stamping three of the other floral image in the Cup of Friendship set together in a row. Once more, I stamped with Permanent ink on Neenah Classic Crest cardstock and colored with Copic markers.

Where the images join and there was a gap, I hand-drew an extra little scallop in the row of scallops below, and fussy cut both top and bottom edges with small, sharp scissors. I found some patterned paper in my stash that looked cute, so I adhered it below the stamped and colored image.

Next, I used the Happy Confetti Cuts to die cut the letters for HAPPY from heavy-weight white cardstock and colored them in an ombre fashion with the same marker colors as I’d used to color the flowers on the card. I stamped the “birthday to you” from the Happy Coordinates stamp set, added foam tape behind the colored flowers strip to pop them up and finished the card with matching enamel dots. Oh, and cut a narrow strip of gloss black cardstock to overlay on the scallop strip.
