Okay dude, I swear that ever since they "upgraded" the Blogger interface it is MUCH more difficult to upload several pictures and have them actually show up in the order I want them. I started and trashed this post twice already, so here's hoping that the third time is the charm!
I spent a LOT of time in my craft room yesterday and I'm about to embark up on a project to go through all my retired stamps, so expect to see a lot of cards using older stamp sets :) In fact, I chose two retired stamp sets for today's card:
I made this in 7 minutes, 54 seconds, and I timed it because I'm entering this in As You See It's speed stamping challenge:
I have cherry blossom stamps that I love, but I picked tulips because I've seen them in bloom near me. We had freezing temperatures earlier this week and even a whole lot of snow (none of which stuck) so I hope the tulips and hyacinths survive the weather craziness. I like tulips and flowers in general but I have two black thumbs. We have three orchids in my kitchen because I adore them and my husband has figured out how to keep them alive ;)
Anywha, back to my tulip card! I used the palette from this week's Color Throwdown challenge:
I used Crumb Cake, Mossy Meadow, Bumblebee, and Flirty Flamingo. Side note: Stampin' Up!, why on earth didn't you name it Busy Bumblebee or something like that? All your other colors are at least two words and it BUGS me (pun intended) that this one isn't! Anyway. I had trouble incorporating the Crumb Cake into my card, so in the end I just sponged a bit of it on the tulip panel.
I'm also entering this at the Paper Players:
There's going to be a new suite of products featuring pansies in the next SU! catalog...
Anyway, I'm off to spend more time in my craft room. Cheers, y'all!
