Funky Dahlias

I was so excited to be asked to be a guest designer on the SUO challenge.  The theme is Bright Summer Days.

Get out your sunglasses!


A little masking and one of the flowers from the Bright Blossoms set, that you'll see in the new catalog, makes a really bright Summer card. {That new catalog goes live on Friday.}

I used one of the new In Colors, Raspberry Ripple.  I love this color and when paired with Daffodil Delight, it really shines.  New In Color, Gumball Green, is great for leaves.  I stamped it full "strength" first then decided it needed to be stamped off first for the rest of the leaves.  It's a rich, bright green. Umm Mmm!

The little butterfly is from the Kindness Matters set. There are 3 beautiful little butterflies in this set that are perfect for coloring and cutting out to add to a flower garden.

All supplies are Stampin' Up!

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Bright Blossoms, Just Believe, Kindness Matters
Ink:  Daffodil Delight, Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green, Jet Black StazOn, SU Marker (Daffodil Delight)
Paper:  Daffodil Delight, Raspberry Ripple, Whisper White
Other:  Big Shot, Adorning Accents Edgelit & EF, Narrow Daffodil Delight Taffeta Ribbon


Hop on over and see what the other designers and entrants have done.  It's sure to brighten up your day.

If you don't have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and would like a catalog, let me know and I'll get one out to you.

Thanks so much for stopping by and a special thanks for your kind comments.

Enjoy!

Congratulations, Bonnie! I love the bright colours. I tend to stick to lighter colours for flowers but my eye is always drawn to bright flowers - need to challenge myself to do some! Great layering with the fabulous bottom edge treatment.
