SUO Challenge #88


Fun with New Toys!


Just Sayin' Stamp Set


Just Sayin' Stamp Set

So, let me just say…  And, I'm saying it with the Just Sayin' stamp set, that you would think it would be a BREEZE to create a "fresh, fun" card using all the new products from the 2014 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog.  I had over a MILLION ideas floating through my head but was struggling to transfer them to paper.  In fact, I wasn't thrilled with this card at first.  It just wasn't "doing" it for me.  I continued to play around but time ran out so I took the photo…  Wouldn't you know it, once I saw the card on the camera I really liked it!  

The card base starts with Whisper White Cardstock layered with Primrose Petals and another layer of Whisper White Cardstock.  I just HAD to use Gorgeous Grunge to stamp a background with the Primrose Petals classic ink.  The next layer was created using the Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper punched using the Chevron Border Punch with a layer of Basic Black Cardstock behind the punched Chevron.

I stamped the sentiment with Primrose Petals Classic Ink using the Just Sayin' Stamp Set and cut out using the coordinating Word Bubbles Framelits Dies. One of my favorite features is that Stampin' Up! offers the Just Sayin' Stamp Set as a bundle with the Word Bubbles Framelits for a 15% savings!!!  We just LOVE the bundles.  The finishing touch features a Summer Starfruit rose created using the NEW Spiral Flower Originals Die with a Large Pearl placed in the center of the rose.

The colors are really lots of fun and very bold.  So, I hope you enjoy and PIN my card.  (And I admit, this card keeps growing on me…)  Don't forget to visit the SUO! Challenges Blog to check out the creations from the other Design Team members!
