SUO Challenges 74

Hello, yesterday wasn’t too bad for a Monday. It was gloomy here as it has been for quite a while. It rains and then pours and then stops. I would like another day like Saturday, sunny and nice, soon please! How is everything by you? Hope it’s all good!

Today’s post is my card for the SUO Challenges Design Team. This time around we were asked to use our favorite accessory. I have two actually, I love Punches and Framelits! The idea for today’s card came from one that I saw in a magazine. I love to see if I can CASE a card using my Stampin’ Up! goodies. Who doesn’t like a challenge?! There are a lot of products on this card so here we go!

The base of the card is Crumb Cake Card Stock and for the background I used a piece of paper from the Subtles Collection Designer Series Paper Pack. The frame is a piece of Vanilla Coaster Board that I cut the bottom with the Labels Collection Framelits and the inside of the frame with the Squares Collection Framelits. I stamped it in Soft Sky with the Dictionary Background Stamp and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. In the middle we have a piece of Soft Sky that is stamped with the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set and the center is cut out with the Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies. A piece of Very Vanilla is stamped with the Woodgrain Background Stamp and punched out with the Decorative Label Punch, the middle is punched out with the Large Oval Punch. The tag is punched out with the Ticket Builder Duo Punch and stamped with this month’s Paper Pumpkin Stamp. A piece of Linen Thread is tied in a bow and also threaded through the two Naturals Designer Buttons. The butterfly that is punched out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch is stamped with the Travel Journal Builder Wheel and the Bitty Butterfly Punch is used to punch out a piece of Baked Brown Sugar. For the greeting I used the Pennant Parade Stamp Set, the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch and a piece of Blushing Bride that is cut out with the Delicate Doilies Large Sizzlit. Across the bottom I stamped an image from the Creative Elements Stamp Set in Baked Brown Sugar. Finally, a “Vintage” Binder Clip is clipped to the top of the label. Phew! Like I said a lot of products but I love the fun random collage look of the card and the subtle mix of colors is different! Thank you so very much for coming by to see my SUO Challenges Design Team card. I always appreciate your visits and love your comments! Head on over to the blog to see the favorites that the rest of the design team have used and enter your card in the gallery to show us yours! I hope you have an inspiringly different day! 🙂
