Stampin' Addicts Retirement Blog Hop: Happy Day
Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Retirement Blog Hop.  Believe it or not, this is the sixth time the Stampin' Addicts have had a blog hop to feature retiring products.  This is a great group of demonstrators and it's always a pleasure to hop with them.  If you are hopping in order, than you got to see Yapha Mason's take on another of my favorite retiring sets: Gently Falling.  Love what she did with that set.

However, when I saw the retirement list, I knew right away that I wanted to feature Happy Day.  I fell in love with this set at convention last year and I am sad that we only got it for one catalog cycle.  Today I'm sharing three new projects and one old favorite featuring this set.  The projects also feature other retiring products and I have marked them with an (r) on the product list under the picture.

Colors: Whisper White, Smoky Slate and Perfect Plum.  Stamps: Happy Day (r).  Big Shot: Circle Framelits and Circle #2 (r).  Punches: 1"circle.  Accessories: Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper (r), Jumbo Rhinestone Jewels (r), Tea Lace Paper Doilies, Smoky Slate Chevron Ribbon.
Colors: Very Vanilla and Night of Navy.  Stamps: Happy Day (r).  Big Shot: Itty Bitty Banners and Banner Framelits.  Accessories: Vintage Lace Trim (r), Jumbo Pearl Jewels (r), Essentials Paper Piercing Template, Etcetera Designer Series Paper (r).

I can't pick a fav cuz they are all just so sweet! Super pairing it up with the DSP in the first card. I like how you pulled just one or two stamps and built such a variety of styles.

Yapha said...

Great cards! You really show the versatility of this set. I love that last card -- I think I already cased it!

Heidi Baks said...

Beautiful cards, Paula. I love the gray-toned one, and the tag is gorgeous. Why does most of the Convention sets only last one cycle? :(

Natalie Kennedy said...

I love all these projects, but I think the second card is my favorite. It's so elegant!

Twila said...

I also love this set. What a beautiful set of projects. Great job.

Holly/Rubber Redneck said...
