Happy Day

F4A209Happy Friday!  I wanted to do a little stamping before I head over to school.  The Free For All Challenge on SCS was to use hexagons.

Since I needed to do a QUICK card before I head out, I decided to build my card around these butterflies that were sitting on top of my desk…you know how I like to do that!

Here’s the details…

  • Basic Black 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White 3 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Punch three  hexagons across the bottom and stamp greeting using Basic Black.
  • Add a Crushed Curry Scallop Edge Punch along the bottom and a Pumpkin Pie strip along the top.
  • Tie Bermuda Bay 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon along the top.
  • Add panel to card front using dimensionals.
  • Butterflies – Bermuda Bay, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry Elegant Butterflies, Whisper White Bitty Butterflies.  Matching Candy Dots.  Add with double layer of dimensionals

Yep…that’s about it.  To me this is a real ‘throw back’ to when I first started stamping and we really didn’t have a lot of ‘extras’ to work with.  I do like the simplicity of the look.

SUO79Happy SUO challenge!  Yep…time for another one and this one is FAVORITE TECHNIQUE!!!  When it comes right down to it, I would have to say my all time favorite technique is emboss resist.  Then I would have to say it is making ‘bow’ my way then stamping on dsp….so I have 3 of my favorite techniques rolled into one card!

The base of the card is Crushed Curry 4 1/4 x 9 folded.  I took a piece of the music dsp (Modern Medley dsp pack), stamped the sunflower in versamark, embossed with white embossing powder then sponged Crushed Curry and some Early Espresso (didn’t want black) in the center.  This is layered onto Basic Black and added to the card front to that the finished size is still 5 1/2.  I stamped the greeting on Very Vanilla using Basic Black, cut into a banner and added a Crushed Curry and a Basic Black banner behind it.  I made a “bow” (click my tutorial tab above to access tutorial on how I make my bows”) using Crushed Curry Chevron Ribbon, Candy Dot Base and Black Candy dot, added to the banners then added to the card front using dimensionals.  Finally I added a couple black candy dots to finish it off!

So…check out what the SUO challenge team did with the challenge and join the fun!
