SUO Challenges 94

Posted on

I do try every week but I’m just not a fan of Monday’s. It started out as a nice sunny day but by 10:00am it was overcast and a little chilly. Work was busy in the morning and then we had a forum at the Carlyle. I did the A/V set up and of course the place didn’t have their sound set up correctly. Never a dull moment! LOL! After work was much better, dinner then card class and Andrew stopped by after. The end of the day was much better than the start, that’s for sure!

Today I’m over on the SUO Challenges blog and this time around our theme is Easter…

I have done a couple of Easter projects recently and I wanted this one to be simple but fun. The base of my card is Daffodil Delight Card Stock and the background is a piece of Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper backed by a piece of Tangerine Tango. I took one of the Tea Lace Paper Doilies and sponged it with some Gumball Green and adhered it to the background, cutting a piece of the left side off. The tag is a piece of Whisper White that I punched with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch. Across the bottom I used my Fringe Scissors and some Gumball Green to make some “grass”. My greeting comes from the Eggstra Spectacular Stamp Set and is stamped on the tag in Basic Black. A piece of Daffodil Delight Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon goes through the top and some Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere it to the card. Like I said, simple but fun! I really like the sponged doily, it creates a nice break between the tag and the DSP. So there you have my Design Team card for the SUO Challenges Easter theme. Take some time to pay a visit to the blog and see what the other talented designers have for your inspiration and enter your card in the gallery so we can see your Easter card! Thanks as always for stopping by today, have a terrific Tuesday!

    Great card Justin, perfect to get my Easter cards going. The colors are very nice. I don’t see Daffodil Delight used enough and I love this color. Did you hear that thunder? 🙂

  2. Pretty and cute with that darn bunny. Like the colored doily behind the tag. I’ve noticed your Instagram pictures. How nice and thanks for sharing. Might one of the pics be you and Taylor?
    Have a good one.

    I want that stamp set just for that little bunny ! He is so so cute ! I like Daffodil Delight a lot ,but don`t use it much . I think it is a true happy yellow without too much orange tone .
    Cute card !

    • Thank you Sonny! Yes, the little bunny is really cute! I agree with you about Daffodil Delight, very happy but not too bright. Enjoy the rest of your day! 🙂

  4. I can’t believe it Justin – that is the same DSP I used when I made my Easter cards this year (I’ve mailed them already)! Isn’t it just beautiful? AND, turning the fringe side upside down to make grass? Never even occurred to me. This card is bright, happy and what an Easter card should be – joyous. Fabulous job Justin, love it!

    • Wow! That’s cool Grace! I think the Watercolor Wonder DSP work really well for Easter cards! Those Fringe Scissors are pretty neat too! Thank you! 🙂

  5. Very cool and Spring-inspired card (looking at the snow falling outside!?! even the robins are confused around here!). How did you attach the grass? is that sewing I see there? Every time I see that cute little rabbit I want to put that stamp sets on my next order…. LOL
    (P.S. my little project for SUO#93 was Top 3).

    • Thank you Louise! Can’t believe it’s snowing by you! I have yet to sew on a card, soon I think. No, just some Sticky Strip. The little rabbit is pretty cute! Congrats on being a top three on SUO! Go you! 🙂

  6. Reading your description before even seeing the card made me feel uplifted. Then seeing your card was icing on the cake! This card is such a WOW. I love the color on the doily along with all the other happy colors. I just adore the little bunny too. Great fringe grass — two layers. The card feels like a refreshing glass of iced cold sugar free orange flavored water. Good job! It seems that your Monday attitude is getting better! You can think of Mondays as just another day toward a weekend! Enjoy the week!! Nancy B

    • That’s great Nancy! I’m so happy to hear that! I really like the doily sponged. The bunny definitely is a cutie! Your description is much better than anything I could ever think up! Enjoy the rest of your day! 🙂

  7. Hi Justin! Cute card—love that little bunny. You always give me great ideas…never thought of sponging ink on the doily! I will have to try that. And I love the fringe scissors…fun to play with those! Such a pretty card! Thanks for the inspiration! Have a great day—

    • Hello Karen!
      Thank you! Yes, the bunny is really cute! I hadn’t thought to sponge the doily either, I thought it would tear but it was fine. Enjoy the rest of your day! 🙂

    I echo all the awesome accolades on your card Justin!!! I love how CAS it is & could not agree more with Nancy & Sonny about the color Daffodil Delight!! 🙂 This card is SO very Springy!! TFS & we are 1 day closer to Friday!! Happy Hump-Day Eve everyone!! LOL!!

  9. Love the bright spring feel to your card. And I love the doily! Great job and great inspiration, as always!
