HLS New Release Stamps - I've been having fun!

I was one excited Happy Little Stamper yesterday afternoon! A big box of new stamps from Happy Little Stampers arrived. 

Yep! We are up to our Second release and I am going to introduce to you the new sets!

I am going to start off with

Birthday Friends

For this card, I created a smaller panel that I could pop up with foam tape. I laid the panel on my card and stamped my hippo and sentiment first. Then I stamped the balloons making sure that some were over the edge of the smaller panel. 

Card #1

I coloured everything with my Wink of Stella pens to add some sparkle. I hope you can see it in the photo below.

Next up is

Whimsical Friends

I really love this set, especially the elephant. I created the two smallest birds especially so they could hitch a ride with him/her.

I stamped my images and sentiment in grey ink. Something I don't do very often. I usually go straight for black... I need to rethink my stamping from now on ;)

Card #2

I coloured the elephant and bird with Spectrum Noir markers. I added clear Wink of Stella to the blanket and her toenails (yep, I decided this elephant was a girl).

Now we are up to

Mix Mash

Another set I LOVE. I have made this really fun and bright card using only the circles and 1 sentiment. How versatile will this set be! 

The circles were stamped with neon inks!

Card #3

Next is

Fun Birthday Sentiments

A must have sentiment set for your collection.

First, I embossed the sentiment on watercolour paper. I used red and orange brushos to create my colour. Love it!

Card #4

Next is 

Thinking of You

This is a really pretty set of lovely sentiments. I can't wait to play with this one more!

My photo doesn't do this card justice. I have embossed all the stamps in gold. It turned out very elegant!

Card #5

Last but not least is

Everyday Sentiments

Seriously, this is another must have set for your collection! 

I sprinkled brushos onto glossy cardstock. Once dry I stamped my sentiment. I added a few little rhinestones too.

Card #6

If you would like to see how I create my backgrounds on glossy card stock, please check out my video:

  21. These cards are lovely, so bright and cheerful ☺

  22. Wonderful cards - all, but I especially love the last one done with the brushes. GORGEOUS. I have been toying with the idea of getting them, but your beautiful background has convinced me. Love the sentiment that takes the center stage. Thanks for linking up and playing with us at AAA Cards.

  23. Fabulous new release and your showcases are oh-my-awesome! Best part is that some of these are joining my collection! Excited!

  24. Love all the Brusho backgrounds - so gorgeous in those jewel tones! The video is excellent - you have completely motivated me to try the Brushos with glossy cardstock. Thanks so much for playing along at AAA Cards and Time Out! Jill

  25. Love the looks of the cards created with the adorable & whimsical new stamp sets...they are delightful & fun. I will 'fess up, though, that the brusho background with the wonderful calligraphy sentiment is going to be my fav I think. This is just so elegant & looks really pretty against that pretty background...Great work on designing such versatile sets that have something for every crafter's style. TFS & have a great weekend. Hugs
