What I Love

SUO142I really love this flower in the What I Love SAB set!  You can get really cool depth in the look of your flowers and by using just the stamping off technique, you can really all your colors to match!  I like when colors match!

So…it is Tuesday and it time for another SUO Challenge.  This time our theme was to use SAB items!  With some of my FAVORITE ones having just retired (so that new ones could come out), I decided to go this is GREAT flower set and the SAB dsp.

Here’s the details …

  • Hello Honey – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Wildflower Fields dsp – 1 1/2 x  1/2, add to card front
  • Whisper White – flowers (stamp 2 of each color) were done using Lost Lagoon, Calypso Coral and Hello Honey.  Use the stamping off technique to get the layers of color, leaves – Mossy Meadow outline color with Pear Pizzazz Marker, cut everything out and layer
  • Whisper White – 4 x 5 1/2, use the leaf border from the Botanical Builder Thinlet set
  • I laid the flowers on the panel (not adhering yet) so that I could stamp the greeting using Basic Black Archival; once stamped, add the flowers with the yellow one added using dimensionals
  • Add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Add White Perfect Accents to the centers of the flowers to finish off!

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see their wonderful creations!

What I Love

WhatILoveEvery now and then I sit down to make a card and I have this idea of exactly what I am doing, then it starts morphing and morphing and morphing.

When I sat down to make this hadn’t stamped in a while (like 2 weeks…GASP… what can I say…SCHOOL!!!) and things just weren’t flowing for me.  I finally decided this was NOT going to be my Tour de Freaks card (don’t worry have a REALLY cool one for you…check us out on the 20th of this month) and then thought…oh…this will work for an upcoming SUO challenge.  Well, then I decided to do something different for THAT one so here is this poor card that I made while I was TRYING to get my mojo back and it is okay…not stellar but okay and I thought I’d share!

Here’s the details…

  • Blackberry Bliss – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Wildflower Fields dsp (SAB) – 5 1/4 x 3, add to card front
  • Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim – add to card front
  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 2 3/4, cut out using Oval Framelit, stamp greeting using Basic Grey Archival, add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Blue Flower is Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo, Purple Flower is just Blackberry Bliss – bottom layer stamped off 3 times before using, middle layer stamped off 2 times before using and outline is full strength.  Stamp leaves using Mossy Meadow and color using Pear Pizzazz marker.  Cut everything out and add to oval.  The blue flower is added using dimensionals.

So that’s the story about this card.  Not my most creative…but then sometimes it is tough to get back in the groove when you’ve been away for a bit.

What I Love

What I LoveSo…have you seen the new Sale-a-bration brochure?  There are some FUN items in there!  This was one of those cards that I made during my New Year’s weekend card making marathon!  I love the ‘3-step’ look of this set (What I Love) and decided to go with a very clean and simple look with it.

I was inspired by the Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Watermelon Wonder combo along with Mint Macaron!

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11
  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 5, stamp flower with Calypso Coral (one layer stamped off) and Watermelon Wonder, stamp leaves using Mint Macaron
  • On separate piece of Whisper White, stamp flower in Blushing Bride (one layer stamped off) and Calypso Coral, cut out and add using dimensionals
  • Stamp the little flower using Blushing Bride and Calypso Coral
  • Stamp greeting using Basic Black Archival
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish it off.
