Gorgeous Cards with Stampin'Up! New Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper

Today we're exploring Gorgeous Cards with Stampin'Up! New Hues of Happiness Deisgner Series Paper. I'm sure you've been drooling over this fabulous new paper that arrived in the new Stampin'Up! Annual Catalog....

Hues of happinessIt's pretty impossible to see the brilliant "rainbowing" colors on most of these pages---you get  a hint with these small slivers but you need to see them in real life to get the full effect.

The fun part is that from a single sheet you can create multiple cards with different color focal points--so you can take one design and end up with multiple color combos. The roses in the design project various shades of a color letting you select one of them to be your focus while the others dovetail nicely.

Here's today's creations:
