The SUO Challenge team is back with a new challenge for you. We want you to use any SU green as your focal color. Stampin’ Up has so many pretty greens that there is sure to be one that is your favorite!
My choice of green was Lucky Limeade. It is a weird choice for me because I didn’t really love it at first. But like many other things, as soon as I saw the coordinating things made with the color it has grown on me. I started with some of Berry Blossoms DSP and felt inspired by one of the prints. I saw a beautiful flower over at Yvette’s Paper Garden and went to look at her tutorial link created by Melanie Hopes. The tutorial shows how to created a variety of flowers using different SU punches and dies…amazing! I chose one of the flowers from Fun Flowers to try. It is easy, fast and wow. My kind of project! I love that I could just add the 3-d flower to the print in the DSP. As I was looking for way to finish the card, I noticed that my Sale-a-bration brads coordinated and just had to add them in.
I can’t wait to hear what you think about this big flower and I’m sure you’ll want to try some right away too. Remember that it is easy to be green with SU so I hope to see you in the challenge!!
I am writing this post ahead of time but with any luck I will be at Cindy Elam’s house (Heart’s Delight Cards) when this goes live!! I am planning on serious stamp-a-pa-looza!! How cool that one job will take me to a friend made doing my other job!! I’m sure we’ll both have lots to post after this visit!!
Thanks for dropping in today. See you tomorrow for another Freshly Made Sketches challenge!
