Stamp Off Bottles and Bubbles Color Challenge

Buffy, Susan and I are back again,
with another Stamp Off challenge!

Today we have a color challenge,
in anticipation of July 4th!  Stampin' Up!
has added some new reds to their color families, 
so that really opens things up!

I have a brother-in-law, whose birthday falls on
July 4th.  That made this challenge pretty easy for me,
as I needed a red-white-and-blue birthday card.
It made perfect sense to pull out my Bottles and Bubbles
Frmelits on page 216.  When in doubt, these framelits
are great for guys.

I think you for checking in, and urge you to 
continue on to see what Buffy and Susan have
created for you today!

Varied Vases with Bike Ride Basket

Varied Vases (on page 45), with the coordinating
Vases Builder Punch (p 212) is a great bundle on it's own.
You can make loads of bright, cheery cards with
this combination.

But one of the more interesting strategies is to pair
this bundle with other SU product.  In this example,
I placed the flowers in the Bike Ride (p 28) basket,
that was cut out with the coordinating Build A Bike
Framelits Dies (p 216).  I LOVE Bike Ride because this
bundle also enables you to create a huge number of looks.
The little basket is great fun to use with lots of
elements, including these lovely flowers.

Nature's Poem on Wood Textures DSP

Nature's Poem (p 143) is an extremely elegant set,
with coordinating Nature's Roots Framelits (p 218).
I appreciate the detailed foliage images and variety of
sentiments.  This set works year around, for masculine
or feminine, and a variety of techniques.
It is an awesome product suite that works well
with the coordinating Nature's Poem Designer 
Series Paper (page 189) or Wood Textures DSP
stack, found on page 191.
