Hues of Happiness New Catalogue Sneak Peek FF107

by Joanne James15. April 2022 08:00


Today I have my card for the new challenge over at Festive Friday. I used the great sketch over at Sunday Stamps for my layout too:


The challenge that we are celebrating this week is 'International Dance Day' which is on 29th April. Remember the fun thing is that at Festive Friday you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion; your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project. I received my new annual catalogue pre-order earlier this week and couldn't wait to open it and start creating! So on today's card I used blue, rhinestones, patterned paper and diecuts from the inspo list and I have a sneak peek of new products for you - take a look:


 Here's the low-down on today's card:

Hues of Happiness Suite - Today's card features a number of products from the new 'Hues of Happiness' Suite. Behind my layered circle I used the beautiful trellis patterned diecut from the Blossoming Happiness Dies, but the star of today's card is most definitely the beautiful flowers that were cut from the Hues of Happiness designer series paper. The Blossoming Happiness Dies fit the flowers and leaves on two of the paper patterns perfectly; beautifully coloured flowers that can be cut out with ease - bonus! Here's a close up of these beautiful blooms: 

Aren't they just gorgeous?! I have cut up a whole pack of this paper already and will definitely be needing more of it!!

Happiness Abounds - The sentiment on the front of my card is from the 'Happiness Abounds' set that is also part of this suite; I added another two to the inside of my card. along with some outline floral detail:


This stamp set will be great for colouring too - I am so looking forward to working with it again.

Finishing Touches - A sprinkling of iridescent rhinestones and a couple of strips of retiring Gorgeous Grape glimmer paper complete my card.

If you think you don't need any more florals, the Hues of Happiness Suite will most definitely change your mind! I can't wait to share more new products with you.

Beautiful, Joanne! I absolutely love it when the designer series paper does most of the work. I can't wait to play with it.  This is a great combination of colors, and a pretty layout. The trellis die cut adds such wonderful texture.  Enjoy your weekend!

Your card is sooo gorgeous Joanne! I love those colors together and SU has done it again with pretty papers that can be cut out individually. The trellis die cut behind the circle is a lovely touch as well.  You certainly made my sketch shine, thanks for joining us at Sunday Stamps!

What an absolute beauty! I really like this suite but resisted because it’s photopolymer. If you keep making wonders like this, I’ll have to relent!
