Eclectic Threading for SUOC197

I had just been looking through some previous posts and came across this one that I did threading on. I just love the effect. I wanted to feature threading on another card and decided the Stampin’ Up Only Challenge #197 Favorite Florals (SUOC197) would be the perfect opportunity. Their challenge is to use a floral set in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog. You can visit their page and play along, too!  The card just started flowing along and before I knew it, there wasn’t any actual stamping on it! A sentiment banner saves the day!

Birdhouse Birthday

These little birdhouses are the most darling little things. And the sweet birdie peeking out the window is adorable. I enjoyed coloring this with the Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers. When I finished the focal point, i realized I needed texture in the background. I reached for the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Embossing Folder. The Dynamic folders are designed to leave a deep impression. I chose to run it through the Big Shot on platform 1 with just one acrylic plate on top to give it a softer look. I love it – and it doesn’t detract from the main image. Such a fun card!

Message for Marcus

I had a wonderful time while Marcus was home last week. As always, his time home flies by way too quickly. He should have his new orders around the end of the summer, so that will most likely be the next time I’ll get to see him. I made this card while he was out with friends and slipped it into his Nintendo Switch case for him to find after he arrived back in upstate New York. Goodbyes are never easy.

Hello Sunshine Strawberry

The tiny fruits in the Tutti Frutti Suite on pages 28-29 of the Occasions catalog are beyond stinkin’ cute! We all know mini-sized things are automatically adorable, but these are ridiculous! I am so glad I got the set with the matching punches and Designer Series Paper. Love Love Love! I made 3” x 3” little thank you cards for my club members that I slipped in with their orders this past week. So cute, I can’t stand it!!!

Blooms Banners and Blends

I am sharing this with Hunter’s permission.  She put together this pretty card that uses the Birthday Blooms flower. She used Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends to color it in and it is gorgeous! She used sentiments and the leaf sprig from the Banners for You set, which I am not sure I would’ve even thought to pair with the flower, but they look like they could’ve come from the same set. She added quiet dimension by gluing the flower panel down flat, then the strip above is popped up on one layer of Dimensionals and the right side panel is popped up on two layers. I tried to capture a little of the shadow…can you tell? It’s a beautiful card with rich, vibrant colors and perfect for spring. Thank you, Hunter!

Feather Together with Brusho

Bear with me as I share another card with a Brusho Crystal Colours background. This one uses the green, which has specks of brown in it. It makes the perfect mossy shade for earthy cards. Now, I will be first to say that this card isn’t speaking to me like others do. Hunter said I should’ve put the feathers the other direction. I think I’m just not happy with the size of the banner. But, alas…I really wanted you to see the green Brusho.

Brusho Flying Home Birdie Delight

Here’s another card with a Brusho Crystal Colours background. I am in love with this amazing powder! I decided to break out another new set and ink it up. The Flying Home set just begs to be colored with the Stampin’ Blends. I added some Wink of Stella for a pretty shimmer (see the close up below) and some random Metallic Enamel Shapes. Perfect color combination to help usher in Spring!
