Oh Happy Day 3 is my final installment in the Reject Shops Oh Happy Day Saga. This one is extremely travel themed so was a challenge to make cards that were just for about travel!
The first four cards are definitely travel themed, though most could be used for other purposes, especially the New York and London ones. Two of the cards have my trusty money saving gold strips on them. I find it a cheap and easy way to add some elegance. The London birthday card also has a Poppy Crafts Double Stitched Circle die from the same gold cardstock. The gold cardstock is actually from file folders I snagged cheap from Kmart and the birthday stamp is from the Rosie’s Studio Bring Joy set.
Three of the next set of cards again use the gold strips and again although travel items have been used I tried to make them a bit more generic. The enjoy the journey stamp is from Going Somewhere by Tim Holtz. OK a travel card lol! Nothing like a Mother’s Love is from Altenews Wild Hibiscus. The one die I used in this set is from Lawn Fawns Large Stitched rectangles and the Just Saying Hello is from their Simply Sentiments set.

In this next set of cards I used even more gold strips 😉. The card with the bird uses the Splendid stamp and Die set from Rosie’s Studio. I used one of the 3D butterflies with a stamp from Rosie’s Birthday Mix. The you are so from the You are so Awesome card is from Crafti Potential and the banner from MFT.
In the last set of cards I used another double stitched circle and stitched rectangle. With Comfort and Love is from Rosie’s Comfort Mix and Be Bright is from their Happy and Bright set. The birthday sentiment is again from their Bring Joy set. Again I used some more gold strips…

I shook things up a little last night and did a live unboxing of my new scan n cut and Tonight I am sharing with you the next round of Oh Happy Day Cards. I have no idea what this collection was called when it first came out but I managed to make a bunch of cards. Here is Oh Happy Day 1 if you want to refresh your memory.
I’ve grouped the cards to make it easier reading. Three of the first group first group have gold strips. Rather than using a mat of gold cardstock I use strips to make it go further. It’s also less bulky on cards! The third card uses a frame that I don’t know the brand of because I bought it used and it didn’t come with packaging. I get a lot second had to save pennies for other things… Like the Scan n Cut! The first two cards have stickers and three use lots of die cuts.
For the next four cards I used three more of those frames, any frame dies would work, and then I turned an off cut from another panel into a frame for the other one. That one uses the Tonic Mixed Edge Rectangles. The Happy Birthday is from Rosie’s Studio Bring Joy stamp set. Loads of die cuts again with the third card using one of the 3D butterflies on a Poppy Crafts double stitched circle. The third and fourth both have a sticker from the sticker pack..
In this next set I used my least favourite piece of paper with with some more gold strips and more die cuts and stickers to make two cards. I had to use the bunny and hedgehog die cuts so made cards around those. This time instead of cutting frames I left the middles in.
This last grouping of three cards uses more bunnies because Bunnies! lol… One uses a leftover strip of patterned paper and more gold strips, another Poppy Crafts Circle with our rabbit sticker, finished off with a big bow. The next has a clover background with a Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle panel. Our bunny is surrounded by clover in a St Patrick’s day feel. Lastly I had some leftover pieces that needed to be used so I teamed them up on the cute little squirrel card. The background was again cut with the Tonic dies.
Anytime I cut pieces for cards out of basic coloured cardstock I have taken to cutting extras. Basic colours like white, black, gold silver or cream. Whatever you reach for most! I then try and keep them all together in the one basket so they are easily accessible. Gold strips I will cut a bunch in various widths at once and add them to the basket.
There is a card that didn’t make the photo’s here as it’s unfinished. If you want to see it when I find the missing piece be sure to follow me on Instagram! I hope you enjoyed these cards using Oh Happy Day 2. Let me know below your faves. Hope you’re creating your own Arty Crafty Alchemy. See you next time!
Today I am sharing with you the first of three Oh Happy Day collections from the Reject Shop. In the video I made 12 cards to showcase the first collection which is a rebranding of Pink Lemonade by the looks.
Each collection comes with 36 6″ papers, 2 of each design, 3D Butterflies, a 4 pack of sticker sheets and a packet of die cuts. There is also a 12″ pack of papers but my store sold out really quickly. Instead of the usual two of each die cut there was only one. Each of the four things I bought was $3 each.
I made 11 cards with the collection using minimal supplies from my stash. Tonic Frame dies, Poppy Crafts Double Stitched Circles and Stitched Hexagons. Rosie’s Studio Still Water stamp and die set and Birthday Mix Stamps. Honey Bee Stamps Sending You stamp set. As well as Archival inks in Jet Black and Aquamarine.
I hope you enjoyed these 11 cards using Oh Happy Day 1. Let me know below your favourite. Thanks for stopping by.
