Season of Friendship

Happy Tuesday everyone!  When I saw the theme for the SUO Challenge this time I COULD NOT WAIT to do it.  If any of you have been following me for a while you know that I have a very favorite set in the whole wide world from SU and that is the Season of Friendship set (retired for several years now).  When it was current I would use this set for everything.  As far as I was concerned there wasn’t a sketch challenge or a color challenge I didn’t figure out a way to use it.  So given the opportunity to pull this out and use it again MADE MY DAY!  I update the look with new colors and new embellishments!

Here’s the details…

  • Pool Party -4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Delightful Daisy dsp – Calypso Coral Print – 2 x 5 1/2, add to card front
  • Delightful Daisy dsp – Night of Navy print – 1 x 4 1/4, add to card front
  • Whisper White – cut out largest Lots of Labels framelit, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – stamp tree trunk using Smoky Slate, cut out and add to card front, stamp leaf cluster in Tranquil Tide, Pool Party, and Calypso Coral.  Cut them all out and add to card front using Glue Dots
  • Delightful Daisy dsp – Tranquil Tide dotted print – 5/8 x 3, stamp greeting using Night of Navy, cut into banner and add using dimensionals
  • Calypso Coral Ombre ribbon – tie into a bow and add using glue dot

Well…here it is the last day of May and my VERY LAST DAY to use my very beloved Season of Friendship!  I just can’t believe this is it!  What was Stampin’ Up! thinking?????  Okay…I’m working on accepting this one!

Well…I think I mentioned this is the VERY LAST CHALLENGE of this catalog and we decided to use the color combo for the Berry Blossom dsp so I used that was the inspiration for my card.  That is such great paper and I will definitely be missing that too!  But you know me…BRING ON THE NEW STUFF (well…except I think they could have KEPT Season of Friendship…but we won’t go there!)

The base of the card is Wisteria Wonder.  I took the Calypso Coral polka dotted printed, layered it on Early Espresso then to the card front.  I added a banner from the flower print, then a banner from Lucky Limeade with a strip of the Wisteria Wonder print on there.  Next I took a piece of Whisper White, pierced around the edge, stamped the greeting using Early Espresso and Calypso Coral and added to the card front.  Now for LOTS of cutting.  I stamped the tree trunk using Early Espresso, cut out and added, then LOTS of leaves in Lucky Limeade, Wisteria Wonder Itty Bitty flowers with mini silver brads and Calypso Coral birds.

Season of Friendship

Yep…continuing on with my week long tribute to the BEST STAMP SET EVER!!!  before it retire.  Just a couple quick notes…gotta get to school!  This is for the SCS sketch challenge.

The base of the card is Crumb Cake with the bottom corners rounded.  Took another piece of Crumb Cake, rounded the bottom corners, stamped the tree in Soft Suede and some leaves in Certainly Celery.  Stamped some other leaves in the new Gumball Green on Crumb Cake, cut out and added using glue dots.  Punched out flowers in Blushing Bride, added with Glue Dots and then added a rhinestone to the center.  Stamped the greeting using Soft Suede on Whisper White, added a Blushing Bride ribbon punch under it and added to the card front.  Made a ‘bow’ (click on tutorial tab above to access my tutorial) using the new Gumball Green stitched satin ribbon and a clear rhinestone brad, added this to the panel then added the panel to the card front using dimensionals.  Yep…that’s all there is to the card.

Season of Friendship

As promised…here’s another Season of Friendship card (and you all thought you weren’t going to see it to day since I did the watermelon card!  LOL)  This is for the color challenge on SCS today.

Just a couple quick notes because I need to be ‘hitting the road’…going to go visit Connie and see her new studio!  (Yes…playing hooky from school today…don’t have any classes!)  So…base of the card is Blushing Bride.  I took another piece of Blushing Bride and wrapped a piece of the Certainly Celery 1 1/4″ Striped Grosgrain around it (going to miss this ribbon – A LOT!!!).  This added to the card front using dimensionals.  Next I took a piece of Whisper White and stamped the tree in Soft Suede.  I stamped a bunch of leaves in Certainly Celery, cut out and added with glue dots.  Next I punch the flowers in Blushing Bride using an Itty Bitty punch, added with glue dot and then added a small basic rhinestone to the center of each.  I added a Soft Suede Decorative Label to the side then added this panel to the card front using Dimensionals.  I stamped the greeting in Soft Suede on Blushing Bride, cut into a banner and added to the card front using dimensionals and glue dots.

Season of Friendship

This sketch was just MADE for the Season of Friendship set…okay…maybe not but you have to admit…it works PERFECTLY with the Season of Friendship set and the fun hostess paper Cheerful Treat!  This is one of those layouts that I like to do where it looks one size but is really a regular sized card…that hangy over part is what makes it a regular size.

The base of the card is Pink Pirouette 4 1/4 x 4 1/4.  I took the Melon Mambo print from the Cheerful Treats (a 5 1/2″ long strip), cut into a banner on both ends and added to the card base.  Next I took a piece of Whisper White and stamped HAPPY (Family Reunion) 7 times in Melon Mambo and 1 time in Concord crush.  I added a Concord Crush scallop edge along the bottom then added this panel to the card front using dimensional.   Okay…now for ALL the cutting (yes, Jackie…this was for YOU!).  I stamped the tree trunk in Early Espresso, cut out and added to the panel along with tons of leaves in Lucky Limeade.  Next there are some Melon Mambo flowers (Itty Bitty Punch) added with mini silver brads and bird in Concord Crush to finish it off.  Oh…SOOOO MUCH WONDERFUL CUTTING!!!!!  Happy indeed!

Set(s): Season of Friendship, Family Reunion
Paper: Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Concord Crush, Cheerful Treat (hostess dsp)

Season of Friendship

I have to admit I decided to take a little ‘creative license’ with Mary Jo’s sketch this week.  This is again one of those cards where it looks like it is an odd size but in reality it is a regular 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 size card.  I love the look of banners hanging over the edge of the card to create that illusion.

So besides being on a quest to use this set as much as I can, I am also trying to use as much of my dsp from the main catalog as I can.  I LOVE the hostess dsp – it is so fun and cheering and perfect for a get well card!  The base of the card is Pink Pirouette 5 1/2 x 3 1/2.  I then cut three strips of the dsp, made them into ‘banners’ and added them to the card front.  I stamped the tree using Early Espresso on Whisper White, stamped the leaves using Lucky Limeade, then stamped more leaves, cut them out and added them using glue dots.  I punched out the flowers using the Itty Bitty Flower Punch from Melon Mambo and Concord Crush and added to the tree using the Silver Mini Brads.  I stamped the greeting using Concord Crush then added the panel to the card front using dimensionals.

Season of Friendship

Can you see why this is just a GREAT sketch for the Season of Friendship set?  It really is just perfect!  I wanted to pair it with a fun paper from the main catalog because I’m trying to use up some of my ‘stash’ I decided to use the Berry Blossom dsp and pull the colors from this pack for my tree.

As always some ‘quick notes’.  The base of the card is Calypso Coral.  I added a strip of the Early Espresso polka dotted paper onto a piece of Lucky Limeade and added to the card front.  Next I added a strip of the floral.  I created the ‘tree’ scene with Early Espresso for the tree trunk, Lucky Limeade for the leaves (some stamped on the trunk and other cut out and added, flowers from Calypso Coral and an the Itty Bitty flower punch (added on with silver mini brads) and the bird in Wisteria Wonder.  (Glue dots are my friend!)  This panel is added to the Wisteria Wonder print and then the card front.  I stamped the greeting from Trendy Trees using Early Espresso, punched with Word Window punch and layered onto a modern label Calypso Coral piece and onto the card front.
