Spring is in the Air – SUO #67

Today I a sharing a card that I’ve made for the current SU-Only Challenges which has the theme “Spring is in the air.” I’m ridiculously excited about my new blossom punch and Mixed Bunch stamp set, but even more excited about what I did with some Very Vanilla seam binding! (Little things! :))

To me, nothing says spring like daffodils, so I thought I’d use the Mixed Bunch stamp along with Daffodil Delight ink and some Desgner Brights buttons to make some daffodil like flowers.

I used subtles Designer Series Paper (so sad to hear Certainly Celery is going :() and Daffodil Delight cardstock for the background before popping on the flowers. I swept a Daffodil Delight inkpad along some Very Vanilla seambinding ribbon. I just love how that turned out – that colour is too scrumptious!

To finish I stamped out the sentiment, using Pumpkin Spice ink, onto Daffodil Delight Cardstock.

Daffodil Delight and Marina Mist I have a plenty, but not quite the same can be said of Not Quite Navy (see what I did?!) only the ink pad. So, taking all that into account, here’s what I came up with:

I used Not Quite Navy to stamp the toadstool image and to ink the edges of all the papers. I also used a waterbrush to apply colour directly to colour in parts of the image.

My Stampin’ Up! supplies are also lacking in ribbon, so I used strips of designer paper and card instead. I had a slightly giddy moment when I remembered that I DID have some Designer Buttons in Brights so popped on one in Daffodil Delight as the finishing touch.
