TGCDT - May Blog Hop - Hues of Happiness
Welcome friends, It's time once again for the monthly Gentlemen Crafters Design Team Blog Hop. The Gentlemen Crafters Design Team (#TGCDT) are a group of male crafters & Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world, that love to share our creative side with you on the 2nd Friday of each month. Be sure to visit all the presenters in this month's hop - links can be found at the bottom of this post.
The Hues of Happiness suite of products is in my opinion a must-have from the new Annual Catalogue. The colour palate in the Designer Series Paper has something for everyone - from bright pinks and yellows through to moody blue and purple hues. With the Designer Paper alone, you can make beautiful cards for any occasion.
The stamp set has some very well worded sentiments, and I LOVE the mixed handwritten script font with the block font - these look very classy on a card. The outline stamped images are perfect for colouring, but you can also stamp them on the coloured backsides of the Designer Series Paper - as is - and then die cut out more beautiful flowers in whatever colour the paper is. My card design this month may look complicated with many layers, but it's actually very simple and I'm confident that anyone can duplicate it.
