Stampin' Up Shine On Happy Happenings All Occasions Cards IV

Our weather is gradually warming up each day now!  I can't wait to hit another 70 plus degree day which hopefully is tomorrow.

First off, I'd like to share some Wild Turkey pictures that I took in my yard last week.  It's mating season for the Wild Turkey and it's so fun to watch the males and their display of 'courtship'!

This is the hen Turkey.

And, the male Tom Turkey in full display following the hen.

Two more Tom Turkey's.  Such a gorgeous bird.  Hope you enjoy the pictures!

O.K., today, I'm sharing the fourth All Occasion Card that I designed using Stampin' Up's Shine On Designer Series Paper and Happy Happenings Stamp set.

Let's take a look:

Isn't that cool paper!!!  I just LOVE the silver foil outlined gems in this paper.

My card base is Stampin' Up's Basic Black Cardstock cut at 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" and scored and folded at 4-1/4".

My front card panel is SU's Shine On Designer Series Paper cut at 4" x 5-1/4" and adhered to my card base using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I adhered one of SU's White Tea Lace Doily's to the center of my card front panel using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I adhered one of SU's Silver Foil Doily's to the center of the White Doily using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

Using SU's Happy Happenings Stamp Set, I stamped Happily Hitched in VersaMark on to SU's Whisper White Cardstock.  I then sprinkled SU's Smokey Slate Embossing Powder over it and heat set it using my SU Heat Tool.

I trimmed out a piece of Basic Black Cardstock at 1-1/2" x  2-1/2" and slid each end into SU's Note Tag Punch and punched each end.  I did the same with a piece of Silver Foil and and the embossed Whisper White piece and made each one a 1/4" shorter than the others.

I adhered the Black Tag to the center of the silver doily and the Foil Tag to the Black Tag using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

The White Tag was adhered to the Foil Tag using Stampin' Dimensionals.

I tied a piece of SU's White Glitter Ribbon (Retired but I think it may still be in the Clearance Rack) in a knot and adhered it to the top of my tags using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

Please stop by tomorrow and I'll share with you the card box for these All Occasion Cards.  

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges and using them for their own card classes.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges, blog hops, card classes or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but,  PLEASE be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!

If you are interested in purchasing Stampin' Up products, you can order from me on-line at and please choose me, Lynn Gauthier, as your Demonstrator.
