Oh will you like the challenge this week at SUO Challenges! We are asking you to show us your favorite products from the Occasions Mini. The hardest part will be choosing, of course! For me, I knew I was going to order Bordering on Romance as soon as I saw it. And I knew I was stamping it on a butterfly.
The colors from the Twitterpated DSP are so beautiful that I wanted to add them here as well. I stamped the image on a butterfly from my Beautiful Butterflies die in Basic Gray ink, then watercolored it with Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze and Basic Gray using a Blender Pen. The little flowers were stamped and colored with the same inks. I included at scalloped border made with the new Adorning Accents Edgelits…so fantastic! You knew that I couldn’t avoid the call of a new ribbon and I have added it here (Pleated Satin Ribbon) and attached a Seam Binding bow. The new big pearls are perfect for the center of a bow (or a flower) and I love them. Some additional Basic Pearls were added to the butterfly. So I guess I went a little overboard with my new products but when they are this pretty, how can you say no?!
So I have a little announcement and I have waited until posting this to tell you. I am officially a Control Freak!! Ok, I am a control freak on a lot of things but I was asked to join the Control Freak Swap Group (aka, some of my Stampin’ Up heroes). This was my card for the first swap I did with them. The cards I got back are amazing!! Thanks to the whole group for such inspiration!
Well, this afternoon is a big test on my knowledge of aircraft systems. Yep, I had one week to learn all the systems of the Airbus 319/320. Lots of studying! In fact, I need to get back to it now. I hope you have a fantastic week and I can’t wait to see all you share with us from the mini!
