Once again, it’s time for the biweekly Stampin’ Up! Only Challenge Blog post. But this time is different from all the rest. This will be my last blog post as coordinator of SUO Challenges, and I am so going to miss this biweekly time with all my friends, both on the Design Team and among those who’ve participated in the challenges. I began my time there 6 years ago, and I’ve enjoyed every one of those 6 years. But I’m ready for something new. As busy as my days are now, something older would have to go to make room for something new. So, for all of you who have followed me at SUO Challenges,
I should probably take a minute or two to tell you about this card, because it was so easy to make. The card base is one of the cards from the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-Bration Brochure – Tutti Frutti Cards and Envelopes. Yes, there’s an envelope to match this! That’s lots of fun – as is the whole card. I only used one stamp set for this project, the Watercolor Words Stamp Set. And do you know how easy it was to line up those flowers? Incredibly easy because I used my Stamparatus. No, you can’t order one right at this moment. But it will be available in the upcoming 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog in June.
The colors for the card are Night of Navy, Lemon Lime Twist, and Berry Burst. When I went searching for something that I could use as an embellishment to go along with these bold images, I found my stash of the 2017-2019 In Color Itty Bitty Bows. When I saw that Lemon Lime Twist Bow, it took me all of 5 seconds to get it onto the card.
By the way – if you buy everything shown below, you can order the Tutti-Frutti Cards and Envelopes Set (16 total card/envelope sets). If you’ve got a good stash of Whisper White Cardstock, you can leave that off and STILL have enough to get the FREE set!
Usually at this point in my SUO Challenge project post I encourage you to enter this week’s challenge. But it’s not actually a challenge this week – just a farewell from me to you and the Design Team. Many of them will be staying on with the challenge as ownership will return to the original owner of the blog, Cindy Blancett, who will have it up and running again in no time at all, I’m sure!
