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.

Another colour challenge over at Create With Connie and Mary using this lovely colour palette:


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.


Now I’m very excited because I’ve just had word saying my order from Stampin’ Up! will be delivered tomorrow. I shall be home alone to received it and enjoy it!!
