Happy Together- True Friends Are Always Together In Spirit

Look at all of the Ridges
(farthest one approx. 35-40 miles)
Hi Friends! 

I hope all of you are having a great week so far!! Yesterday my hubby and I were able to take a trip to Shenandoah National Park and drive 80 miles along Skyline Drive (160 miles round trip in the park) and we had a great time!

The weather was absolutely gorgeous and there were only a few other visitors, so we basically had the park all to ourselves (just the way we like it!)  The vistas are amazing....beautifully serene and peaceful and barely a cloud in the sky- just a perfect day!

I had a chance to create a Clean and Simple (CAS) card Thursday that I am sharing today over on the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps (SNSS) blog and wanted to share it with all of you here as well.  

This card was designed using the brand new Happy Together stamp set (designed by Korin Sutherland) along with Grunge Elements and the Ticket Dies.

To create this card:

Ink the Grunge Elements (SNSS) image with Delightful Dijon Classic Ink, stamp off before stamping onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock- repeat this step three times.

Ink the same Grunge Elements image using Crushed Curry Classic Ink and stamp at the bottom.

Ink the silhouette images from HappyTogether (SNSS) with Stāz-On® Stone Gray Ink and stamp over the yellow background (I used my MISTI® Tool so I could repeatedly stamp the image).

Die cut the image into a circle and layer a die cut circle of Basic Gray cardstock behind the focal image.

Stamp the sentiment from HappyTogether (SNSS) using Stāz-On® Stone Gray Ink onto Whisper White cardstock (again, I used my MISTI® Tool for positioning and repeated stamping). 

Cut the sentiment out with the Big Shot® and the largest die from the Ticket Dies (SNSS) and also cut the same size die from Basic Gray cardstock.
Split the Basic Gray Ticket Dies die cut in half and layer behind the sentiment (spreading the Basic Gray die cut apart a bit so the layer will show on the sides).

Cut the retired Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper (DSP) on an angle and layer a strip of Basic Gray cardstock at the top of each angled piece.

Layer a piece of Whisper White cardstock onto the Basic Gray card base, add the angled DSP pieces and mount the sentiment with dimensional foam.

Add the focal image circle with dimensional foam to finish off the card- quick and easy!
