SU Summer Silhouettes

What a fun time I had last night with my stamping friends- we all had dinner and class with our friend, Stacey Ailes. She prepared some beautiful cards for us, and I got to use the sweet SU Summer Silhouettes stamp set. I love it!   I like how she showed us to use a white gel pen to accent the smaller flowers. I was inspired to  design a card using this set and decided the ColourQ Challenge # 194 was a great starting point. I did not have any SU Poppy Parade ink but I did have some Poppy Parade Polka Dot DSP so I used it to ground my image. The think the SU firm foam ink pads stamp darker than my old  linen ones and this time was no exception- it looks as if the DSP and the lacey flower are the same color! But, those flowers are indeed Calypso Coral.  I used another new favorite sentiment from the new catalog found in the SU Simply Sketched set- a hostess gift with a qualifying order.

  1. This is just lovely, Cindy! I agree, the foam pads (especially the 2013 ones) are quite juicy and stamp differently that the old ones. Just a matter of getting used to, I think. And maybe we won’t have to ink them up as much! Anyway, I love your floral images here along with that big bold sentiment! Great way to highlight the colors! Thanks for playing with the ColourQ challenge this week!
