The Pals Paper Arts Challenge 312 sketch was a great sketch to showcase the Elizabeth Craft Design Hydrangea Die I purchased at our recent Scrapbook Expo held in Duluth, GA.

To keep the main focus on the hydrangea, I kept the background and the cardstock band neutral. The Elizabeth Craft Design die comes with an irregular shaped circle, a die for the petals and several different sized leaves.  I cut three of the circles and cut the second and third down to create a stairstep affect on the bottom circle. I adhered each of the circles onto the larger circle using SU! dimensionals. This adds greater dimension to the hydrangea.  I sponged a little SU! Pool Party on to some Whisper White card stock and then cut out the petals. I shaped the petals using the Elizabeth Craft Design tool kit for flower shaping; then, I cut the leaves out of SU! Old Olive and sponged the edges with SU! Old Olive ink andshaped the leaves. I  adhered the flowers on the cardstock circles and I took a dry watercolor brush (a stiff one) and took up a little Pool Party ink from the ink pad lid and brushed the color lightly across the petals.

The band is cut from SU! Crumb Cake cardstock and embossed with the SU! brick wall embossing folder. I cut the strips on top of the Crumb Cake from Old Olive using the SU! Swirly Scribbles Thinlits. The sentiment is stamped in Old Olive and is a Bo Bunny – Amen stamp set which I purchased on sale from Hobby Lobby. The mat and base are SU! Very Vanilla cardstock.

If you have been keeping up with my posts, you know I have really fallen in love with 3D flowers. I think this card is clean and simple and would be a great card to give someone as a sympathy or get well card.

Fab Friday’s current challenge is a Color Challenge. Here are the colors:

Since Mother’s Day is just around the corner, I decided to create a Mother’s Day card using Fab Friday’s color challenge.
I chose SU! Painted Petals and SU! Perpetual Birthday Calendar to create this card. I think this unique color combination turned out well. This will definitely be a wonderful card to receive on that special day! I tried to get the best picture I could, but it does not do the card justice. I had used the hexagon metal die as a mask to add a little Hello Honey to the background and in person, it looks good. But, in the picture it looks like a dirt smudge. I added some bling

If you read the first post for the first card I entered for the SUO Challenge #136, you will recognize this is the second entry based on the title of the blog. Sometimes, I come up with original ideas for my Christmas make-n-takes and sometimes I use Pinterest when my brain just can’t be creative anymore. This is an original card based on many cards on Pinterest. There’s not too many ways you can have a fireplace with stockings on a card other than changing the color scheme. This is my favorite card out of all seven designs offered at my make-n-takes.

 

Again, if you read my first post, you can see Cherry Cobbler is a central focus of this card as it is one of my favorite SU! colors. I think the Crumb Cake wainscoat really sets the card up to make the fireplace/mantel really pop. Since you can’t hold this card in your hand and see all of the 3D detail, I’ll give you the run down on what is popped and what is not. Everything has dimensionals on it except the background mats, the inside of the fireplace and the bow on the wreath. I used SU! Festive Fireplace Photopolymer Bundle to make this card. I stamped the fireplace with Staz-on black ink onto Cherry Cobbler and went back through with Whisper White and Pretty in Pink Craft inks to highlight the bricks (I used a q-tip). I cut the center of the fireplace out and placed a piece of Basic Gray in the opening (I think it makes the flames stand out). The flames are watercolored and the logs are stamped onto Chocolate Chip paper with some watercolor shading. The stockings were colored with Stampin’ Write Markers. The wreath was stamped using Mossy Meadow on Pear Pizzaz (I think – better double-check that before my class this Saturday or I used Garden Green ink) and has a splash of glitz using the Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details from SU! The cat was stamped on Smoky Slate and sponged with Basic Gray. I love the cat, It makes me think of my friend Cindy Hilton and her love for ALL things cats. I did use the framelits to cut out the fireplace, mantle, and cat, but I didn’t like having a “huge” border; so, I either trimmed all the way down to the stamped line or trimmed very close to the stamped image. I can’t forget to mention the top background mat of Cherry Cobbler is stamped with the SU! retired background stamp Netting; it just gives the top part of the card a little depth. The bottom background of Crumb Cake was embossed using the SU! Stripes embossing folder.

Well, I think the above description of how I made the card sums it up. Love it!

Supplies: Note – to make a pink craft ink combine a drop of Cherry Cobbler reinker to a spoon size amount of Whisper White Craft re-inker and blend – adjust as necessary to get desired color.
