Flower Patch

SUOBoy do we have an interesting challenge for the SUO Challenge this time!  The theme is ‘use your team colors’ for a card.  Well if you know me, you know I live in Ohio…Xenia Ohio to be exact.  But if you know where I grew up, you would know that is Pittsburgh Pennsylvania.  Knowing that it would be easy to guess I’m showing my team color for the Pittsburgh Steelers – Gold and Black!  Well in this case it is Crushed Curry and Black but that works for me!

Here’s the details –

  • Crushed Curry – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, stamp greeting using Memento Black, layer on Basic Black 3 3/4 x 5, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Stamp flowers using Crushed Curry and center and leaves in Memento Black (sorry Jackie!), cut out using framelits, bend flower edges add centers using dimensionals then add to card front.
  • Color some rhinestones using the darkest Daffodil Delight blendabilities (sorry…I know they are not available anymore but I do LOVE them!) and add to centers of flowers and under the greeting.

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see which one they picked!

Set(s): Flower Patch
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Crushed Curry
Ink: Memento Black, Crushed Curry, Blendabilities: Daffodil Delight
Other: Flower Flair Framelits, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals

Until next time…HAPPY STAMPIN’!

TSSC360Oh…you know how I just love SIMPLE sketches and Mary Jo has a GREAT on for us this week for the Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch challenge.  You need to feature the greeting but have a stamped image behind it.  Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

One of my favorite color combos is yellow and blue.  There is just something so happy about it!  When I was thinking of colors to use for this…I decided to go wit h this happy combination!

Here’s the details –

  • Daffodil Delight – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/8 x 4 5/8, stamp balloon using Daffodil Delight.  Draw string using Daffodil Delight marker.  Stamp greeting using Night of Navy
  • Night of Navy -3 1/2 x 4 3/4.  Layer stamped panel on it then add panel to the card front using dimensionals.
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish it off.

What’s Your Type

CAS319I have been having so much fun playing with the What’s Your Type set…there is just so many different things you can do with this set.

I saw that the CAS challenge is to do a masculine card and so since I had this set sitting out on my desk I thought I’d just go with this for the card today.  I’ve also been using my Candy Dots a lot recently so thought that would be a fun add on for this card.

Here’s the details –

  • Crumb Cake – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 3 1/4 x 5 1/2, stamp solid triangle using Night of Navy and Baked Brown Sugar, stamp striped diagonal triangle using Marina Mist.
  • Stamp HAPPY in Baked Brown Sugar, and birthday in Night of Navy (both from Celebrate Today set)
  • Night of Navy – 5/8 x 5 1/2 two strips and add one to each side of the Very Vanilla panel and add to card front
  • Add Crumb Cake, Marina Mist, and Night of Navy Candy Dots to finish off
