Fab Friday Colour Challenge 106 – Stampin’ Up!

Welcome back 🙂

Today I’m sharing a card with you that I’ve made using Stampin’ Up!’s Happy Celebrations Stamp Set, & Stitched Shape Framelits Dies. You can find this new & exciting stamp set in the current Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalogue for 2017.

***Updated 03.03.2017*** Exciting news!! This card was in the top picks for the Fab Friday #106 colour challenge. While it wasn’t number 1 & the Fab Fave pick, it did make it into the Fab Four, Yay!!

Happy Celebrations Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up!

The Happy Celebrations stamp set is easy to use & it makes me feel happy & playful when I’m creating cards with it. I’ve used this stamp set a few times now & I can honestly say that it’s perfect for both guys & gal’s. You can do a little…. or a lot with it, & the end results are still striking. So when I saw the colour combination on the Fab Friday challenge page, I knew it was the perfect set to use.

Now I have to be honest & say that I personally, probably wouldn’t have thought of putting these colours together; But gee I’m glad the Design Team over at Fab Friday did. It’s bright, cheerful & fun! I think it’s one that I might have to use again in the future.

As you can see my card appears to dark & light versions of each of the 4 colours on it. I’ve used a technique called “Stamping Off” to give me variations of each particular colour. It also makes stamping a card like this a little quicker as I’m not re-inking my stamp after each use.

Technique How to: Stamping Off

1]   Ink a stamp.
2]   Stamp the image.
3]   Restamp the image one or more times without re-inking it. This technique is a great way to get several shades of colour from a single ink pad.

QUICK TIP: Use Stampin’ Off to simulate movement on your card.


To keep the fun “confetti” look going I decided to use the circle framelits dies from the Stitched Shapes set. I think the stitching creates a “finished” look without the need for lots of layers.


I heat embossed one of the sentiments from the stamp set onto the Bermuda Bay circle using Versamark, Whisper White Stampin’ Emboss Powder & my heat tool.

I then stamped a bigger & bolder sentiment, along with another smaller sentiment, inside the card itself using Peekaboo Peach ink. To give it a bit more oopmh! I’ve also heat embossed both the inside sentiments this time using clear embossing powder.

    1. Thanks Heather 😊. I love your comment about the colours being juicy!! 😀. They definitely are. I’ve got some other ideas for ways to use this colour combo, I just need to find the time. Thanks again for the inspiration 😍

  2. The colours do look great together but it is the fun dots that I really like. The stamp technique is clever for those like me with a limited pallet of ink colours. Thanks for sharing and inspiring – I am hoping for lots of wet weekends to be able to stay home and stamp 😁

    I think you very well rocked the challenge! I love the way you combined the circles and some layers of card stock for a great card! And for not being sure of these colors, you embraced them with boldness. Way to go!
