Beautiful Day!

Hey, all! Long time, no see! Hope your Christmas was Very Merry!! and, Best Wishes for the New Year! We had a good one, both boys here for a few days and good times all around.

Watch for an update on all things SU! a little later tonight or early tomorrow. Year end is here and NEW things are on the horizon!!

I made it up to the stamp room last night and whipped out a few cards! A while back I had colored a few flowers from Beautiful Day with my Stampin' Blends. Tonight I made those into cards. I'm going to share all 3 here. Very similar really, but see what a difference a background or ribbon choice can make!

First up, Flirty Flamingo.

This picture looks a little busy, it really isn't that bad in real life. Jury is still out on that ribbon though! I like it, just not 100% sure it works here! The flower was colored with both the light and dark Flirty Flamingo. Leaf is Granny Apple Green, center Daffodil Delight. The flower was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Thick White Cardstock. After coloring, I went over the entire flower with my Wink of Stella (clear) glitter brush. The card base is Flirty Flamingo cardstock, accent layer of Basic Black and a background of small dotted Flirty Flamingo Designer Series Paper from the 6x6 Brights pack. The flower was cut out and attached with dimensionals. Thank You at the bottom is from Thankful Thoughts.

Next up, Mango Melody!

Same flower technique. Same DSP 6x6 stack. Flower was colored with Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green and Soft Suede for the center. Finished once again with Wink of Stella. Card base is Basic Black, accent layer of Mango Melody, background of Mango Melody white stripe from the Brights 6x6 stack. Ribbon is the Basic Black 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon. Thanks again from Thankful Thoughts.

And, lastly, Bermuda Bay.

Flower again on Thick Whisper White using Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green. Finished with Wink of Stella. Maybe just a touch to heavy on this one! Card base is Bermuda Bay, accent layer of Basic Black and background DSP in Bermuda Bay, white stripe. Same ribbon above and another saying from Thankful Thoughts. This one using the Classic Label punch.

Let me know if any questions!! Thanks for stopping by. Hoping to be back soon and much more often!! Happy New Year!! Product details and shopping link below!!
