I am a CAS gal- well, when it comes to stamping, I am pretty much CAS. So, I am smitten with the new SU Remarkable You Calla Lily and Water Lily images. I did research on Calla Lillies to see the colors and was surprised to see a variety of hues. From this quick research, I did notice that the spadix of the Calla Lily in all of the different colors is yellow. I can remember making my homeschooled kids memorize all the parts of flowers for science class- happy memories:)
However, I love how all colors can be used in the magical world of stamping- purple elephants, green giraffes, and even a pumpkin pie spadix in one of my cally lilies:)
The Stampin’ Up Only Challenges # 127 asked to share our favorite new stamp set.
As always, whatever I am working with ultimately is my favorite stamp-du-jour! Here is my card using the SU Remarkable You stamp set with a Pear Pizzazz card base and ink and accents of Daffodil Delight. With a bold image like this, it is was hard to embellish my card but I think the simple black and white baker’s twine worked well with the retired Daffodil Delight button.
I also used my NEW Archival Basic Black felt ink pad that SU blessed me with at Convention last week- oh my my- it is wonderful- crisp, clean, and REALLY BLACK!! It will be in the new Holiday catalog coming out Sept. 1. Yipee!
A little something on the inside, too…
Love the color combination as well as your button/twine embellishment- just perfect, my friend! Thanks for playing along with us at SUO Challenges 🙂
oh this is very pretty, and the simple style is so very elegant!! And it will be awesome when the new black is out!! So glad you joined our challenge at SUO!
