SU Bloomin’ Marvelous

SU Bloomin’ Marvelous

I pulled out a favorite of mine from Sale-a-Bration 2013 this year…SU Bloomin’ Marvelous. I was inspired by the colors at Colour Q # 200 and the MUSE Card Club Challenge  #28  made by Lynn Mangan. And..those Polka Dots and “happy” go right along with Erica’s challenge at the Friday MashUp # 121 this week too! Thanks to  all the designers and players at all three sites for inspiring me during a week full of moving kids in and out of apartments in two different states only days apart!

SU Mixed Bunch Candy Favors

Hey Everyone!! It’s been a busy last few days in Utah at the Stampin’ Up Convention! Having a ball meeting up with old friends and meeting new ones- the stamping community is just so fun! I will be posting some fun stuff in the next few days. But I wanted to share this cute little treat with all of you wonderful subscribers to my blog. You all make my day when You leave a comment or jump on board… blessings to you all:)

Remember those fun little colorful circles I used last week with the SU Oh, Hello set? Well, here are the favors I mentioned in my post.  I made these for my wonderful stamping crew with SU Mixed Bunch.

Card Recipe:
STAMPS: SU Mixed Bunch, SU Bloomin’ Marvelous
INK: SU Bermuda Bay, SU Daffodil Delight, SU Melon Mambo
PAPER: SU Whisper White
TOOLS: SU 1 in. Circle Punch, SU Secret Garden Framelits, SU 3/4 in. punch, SU Bitty Butterfly punch

* I used Rite-Aid brand peanut butter cups that had a solid gold covering without a brand name stamped on them like a Reese’s has- I  actually liked them much better than a Reese’s- they tasted more like a peanut butter melt-a-way! Rolos would be perfect too…just find a circle punch that fits a candy you have!

It’s SU Bloomin’ Marvelous Again for Stampin’ Up Only Challenge #64

You know what happens if a stamp set sits on your crafting space too long…you will pick it up and use it again! For me, that is great because I have some sets I feel like I have only used once or may not have even used yet after having for- I am sad to say years:( How does that happen? I just keep saying to myself, “They are not perishable and will get used sometime.” It helps rationalize my need to get more and not let go of any- heeheehee, she chuckles. Sooooo, here is another card using  SAB Sycamore Street DSP/ribbon bundle and the sweet little hummingbird and flowers from the SAB Bloomin’ Marvelous set. I conserved my mojo by using a similar image design from a day ago but larger and bolder.  I am entering this in the SU ONLY Challenge #64  (my first time on this site) since it is all SU products and focuses on SAB 2013 where you can earn free items for a $50 purchase!
