SUO100 Celebrating Our First 99 Challenges :-)

Hi Stampers! 

Wow!!  We are celebrating our 100th SU-Only Challenge and we love for you to choose one of our past 99 Challenges and participate in our “Celebrating our First 99 Challenges" and this card also qualifies for the Paper Players Tic Tac Toe Challenge (Birthday, Patterned Paper, Pearls) :-) 

I decided to use the SUO70 Butterflies theme for my card and I cannot wait to see what you decide to choose:-)    Stop by and check out our Design Team projects and hope to see your project in the gallery!

I love using My Digital Studio (MDS) images and coloring them with our Stampin’ Blendabilites™ so I decided to use several retired stamp images that are still currently available in MDS- again, love using MDS for cards!!

To create this project:
In My Digital Studio (MDS), open a blank 8.5 x 11 custom page and insert the French Foliage script image (enlarge a bit), flowers from Touch of Nature (re-sizing each to different sizes), sentiment from Feeling Sentimental and butterflies from Wonderful Wings (re-sizing the images).  Print the images out onto Whisper White cardstock (I use a Kodak inkjet-works great for MDS and cardmaking)..
Cut the French Foliage script image out using the Big Shot™ with the Window Frames Collection Framelits™ cutting a frame the same size from Basic Black cardstock.  Cut the frame in half and mount behind the script image background.
 Using the Stampin’ Blendabilities™ , color the flowers using the Coastal Cabana, Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight Collections , color the butterflies with the Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Coastal Cabana Collections and carefully “fussy-cut” the images.  Add a few highlights using the Chalk Marker.   
Use the 1” Square Punch to punch out the squares from the Back to Black Designer Series Paper (DSP) and mount onto the 5 ½” square Basic Black card base.  
Cut a White Tea Lace Paper Doily in half, adhering half of the doily to the lower part of the frame and mount the second half behind the right hand side of the frame.
Mount the frame onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.  Add a strip of Rich Razzleberry cardstock to cover the edge of the paper doily, mount the sentiment layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and add the Antique Brad to the corner. 
Adhere the flowers and butterflies to the card front and add the Pearls to finish off the card.
Stamp Sets: Wonderful Wings, Touch of Nature, Feeling Sentimental, French Foliage (all MDS versions)
Ink: Printer Ink- Basic Black, Blendabilities™ Collections- Rich Razzleberry, Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie; Chalk Marker
Paper/Cardstock:  Whisper White, Basic Black, Back to Black DSP
Accessories:  Big Shot™, Window Frames Collection Framelits™, Hexagon Punch, Pearls, Antique Brad, White Tea Lace Paper Doily

Thanks again for stopping by - I hope you have a chance to join in on our “Blast from the Past” Challenge!  Have a blessed week!!

Thanks Aunt Pat!! This one was one of my recent favs- the new Blendabilities are so much fun to color with and coordinate so well with our papers, etc. Thanks again for taking the time to comment- you are such an encouragement to me! Have a wonderful 4th of July!!
