Simply Happening Kit Part 1

Happy Thursday My Blogger Friends!
Today I have the first of several blog lighting the new Stampin' UP! Simply Happening Kit.  I have been offering this Simply Happening Kit Class in both March and April.......and I used one of the kits to show the ladies how you can "STEP-UP" your Simply Happening Kits by simply adding some extra cardstock colors and a few punches.  Let's jump right in with today's three cards.......
For this card I used the pieces from the Simply Happening Card Kit and created three "thanks" banners for the front of my card.
The one thing I added to this card was three stamped flowers from the Petite Petal stamp set.  I stamped my flowers onto Coastal Cabana cardstock and punched them out with the Petite Petal punch and added a rhinestone in the center of each flower.
For my second card, I cut down one of the layering panels (stripes) and added that to the front of my Whisper White base card.  For my sentiment I stamped my "thanks" right onto one of the banner flags (towards the right hand edge of the banner flag).  I then created a circle embellihment  piece....using the Petite Petal stamp set and punch and then layered my flower onto several punched out circles. 
To complete this card......I tucked a paper dollie with one of the Strawberry Slush circles behind the striped layering panel and added a punched butterfly.
And my last card share for today is this darling "thanks" card.
I punched a cut-down panel of the layering pok-a-dot paper and scalloped the edges with a border punch.....And then created a super fun flower embellishment for the center of the heart (included in this kit).

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share with you Part 2 of the Simply Happening Kit...........Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!


  1. So many different looks by just changing up a few things. Pretty cards Kadie.

  2. Awesome job on 'stepping up' the kit cards. All the layering is just fabulous on all the cards. My FAVE is the heart/flower/button embellishment on the last card. The crystal effects really shines on the flower and looks super. I have this kit but haven't been able to get to it yet. I will have to keep this in mind when I do get to my kit. Thanks so much for sharing with us!!! So very nicely done!

  3. I love how you gave these kit cards new personality!
