Right at Home One Year Birthday Celebration Hop



Happy One Year Anniversary to Right at Home!  To celebrate, RAH is hosting a fun blog hop, a giveaway and a link-up (info at the end of this post).  Congratulations Nicole! I'm so happy to watch your company grow.

Nicole released her first stamp set, Happy Mail, a year ago, and I bought it as soon as I saw it. It's a small set ($7.99) but packed with fun elements that you can use over and over. And, RAH just released Happy Mail 2, another great set that works perfectly with Happy Mail.

RAH will be giving away a set of these stamps to a lucky winner.

And I used them to make this:


My card was directly inspired by this card, made by the uber talented Yana Smakula. Stamp a pattern in 3 or 4 shades of the same color and add a sentiment. I die cut the top layer to add some sweet scallops.


Add a nice note inside and make someone's day.

I used three shades of pink ink from Altenew -- Frosty Pink, Coral Berry, and Ruby Red.  I used the Coral Berry twice -- once in full strength and once stamped off.  The palest flower is Rose Gold ink from the Ton. My pad needs re-inking, so I got a great pale peachy color.

You can find all the information about the the link-up, and the giveaway on the RAH blog.  And here is a list of the fantastic participants in the hop (I snuck in!):

MOOD WHEN DONE = Happy!

Hi Joan ~ I always love creating my own background paper and yours is quite lovely. The softness of the pink in contrast with the gold is wonderful on the doubled die cut card front. Thank you for sharing and inspiring.
