International Highlights Blog Hop - Hues of Happiness

I'm excited to participate again in Kylie's Monthly International Blog Highlights for June. The theme is "Thank You" and I've created a pretty card featuring the Hues of Happiness Product Suite.  I love this suite and couldn't resist creating a pretty background using Vellum Cardstock and my Blending Brushes.  Isn't this pretty in Tahitian Tide!


  1. Cut Tahitian Tide cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2".  Fold on the score line to form card base.
  2. Cut Basic White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Cut Vellum cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  4. Stamp flower images randomly on Vellum cardstock using Versamark ink.
  5. Sprinkle with White Embossing Powder and heat to melt.
  6. Once dry, use your Blending Brush to add Tahitian Tide to the front of the Vellum Cardstock.
  7. Gently wipe the piece once dry to remove any excess ink from the embossed images.
  8. Adhere to the Basic White cardstock - I typically only add adhesive where it won't show - sometimes you will see adhesive through Vellum.  Add Glue dots to the corners
  9. Stamp sentiment on Tahitian Tide cardstock using Versamark and sprinkle with White Embossing Powder.  Heat to melt
  10. Cut out using a banner die from Stylish Shapes Dies
  11. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals.
  12. Stamp 2 rose images on Designer Series Paper using Versamark and sprinkle with White Embossing Powder.  Heat to melt
  13. Cut out using Die
  14. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals.
  15. Cut 2 pieces of ribbon about 6" long and tie a bow with both pieces.
  16. Adhere to card base using a Glue Dot
  17. Adhere embellishments
  18. Cut Basic White card stock 4" x 5 1/4"
  19. Stamp flower in bottom right corner using Tahitian Tide ink
  20. Adhere to the inside of the card.
