Stampin' Up! Beautifully Happy Card by Shelly Godby of www.stampingsmiles.comConfession time. I underestimated the delightful potential of the Stampin’ Up! Beautifully Happy Stamp Set from the Stampin’ Up! 2023 Sale-a-bration Special. No offense to my beloved company I’m proud to represent, but the samples in the catalog didn’t catch my eye. It came to life when I stamped the flowers with Blushing Bride Classic Stampin’ Pad ink. A pleased intake of breath at just how pretty it was escaped my lips. 


Blushing Bride was the chosen color for the flowers because it’s the color from the background paper used on this handmade card idea. It’s from the Dainty Flowers 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper, another of the 2023 Sale-a-bration Special FREE-gifts-with-purchase options. It’s such a popular selection, and if anything runs out, I fully expect this will.


Stampin' Up! Beautifully Happy Card by Shelly Godby of


My Stampin’ Up! Beautifully Happy card used one marker two ways. The first was to color a white ribbon for perfect color coordination.


Use a Stampin' Write Marker to color ribbon


The second was to color the edge of the Happy Labels Pick a Punch punched cardstock for a controlled line; using a sponge is much more difficult to achieve this effect.


Color the edge of cardstock with a marker


Oh, I almost forgot. You won’t need a marker to color the flowers. The set includes solid stamps to fill in the flowers and leaves easily!
