Just Add Ink #397 | Just Add 'H'

Hello stamping friends! The days and weeks just keep rolling on and we have come to another Friday and another challenge over at Just Add Ink. It's a pretty simple challenge but it's lots of fun, Just Add 'H'. As long as a 'H' element is the main focus of of your project then you're set for the challenge.

I've used the Stampin' Up! Happy Celebration stamp set for a Happy Birthday card for the guys. With the 'H' theme I really wanted that 'Happy' to be the main focus of the card. 

I've stamped the 'Happy' using the Memento Tuxedo Black in on Crumb Cake card stock. I did originally try to colour the 'Happy' with Night of Navy Stampin' Blends but wasn't happy with the way it was turning out so I left just the outline of the 'Happy' stamped as is.

All the colours for all the items on the card come from the colours in the True Gentleman DSP from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue. Its such a stunning pack of DSP and the colours are gorgeous. Perfect for those boys and men in our lives. It's got some classic patterns mixed up with some fun images. So fun!

I've then embellished the card with Linen Thread, Tranquil Tide Finely Woven Ribbon, Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon, True Gentleman Buttons and some Night of Navy Enamel Shapes.Who says you can't put ribbon on a guys card?! Have you seen that Corduroy Ribbon?? It is beyond gorgeous! It's beautiful!!! Watch this space! New ribbon love that will be on all my creations!
