Fussy Cutting: Hues Of Happiness

Hues Of Happiness: Card Two

Hues of happiness card 2

I had some 3" strips of this paper leftover after I'd make a DSP reference page. (You might see that pop up in a video or story when I'm featuring the paper in a project.)  So of course I punched a great pile of these shapes and whipped up a few simple cards on white bases.  This design is a long term favourite.  

The greeting I've used there is from Nature's Prints stamp set.  This was a new stamp set so I first needed to add the sticky labels to each rubber stamp.  Here's a few pics of how I do that these days - a slight tweak to my method that I'm finding helps get the label on nice and flat without bumps.

First peel the whole sticker from the sticker sheet (with it's backing.)   Place it on a clear block of a similar size.

Now the sometimes tricky bit - peel the backing off.  It is then easy to hover the block over your rubber stamp and check the positioning before plonking it down.  Do this step slowly as once it is stuck on - it is staying there.  With your rubber stamp on a flat surface, I find putting the sticker onto a clear block and pressing it down onto the stamp helps me end up with a nice flat finish.

And now you're all set to stamp your greeting.  (Or peel it off the block and place it back in the case if you're not stamping just yet.)

For this card I used the 'Hello There' greeting from the set and I've cut it out with the Beautiful Shapes dies and my Stampin' Cut and Emboss Machine.  If you don't have a die cutting machine - a punch that fits your greeting will work well.

And here's our finished card.

Happy stamping!
