Not So Seriously UDI48 Color Challenge

Imagine yourself, flipping through the New Stampin’ Up! Idea Book and Catalog, on the look out for new stamp sets and images.  Then, you come to page 55… and you burst out laughing!  Yes, that’s what just about everyone I know has done when they view and re-view the new “Not So Seriously” Stamp Set.

It’s happened time and again… in camps, clubs, classes, and workshop setting!  The laughter is contagious as the page is shared, read aloud as others quickly flip to that page as well.  LOL… needless to say, it was at the TOP of my “MUST HAVE” list and first demonstrator order mid June!

In case you hadn’t already guessed, today’s  Utah Divas International Color Challenge features the Not So Seriously Stamp on the now infamous page 55!  LOL, I made it quite some time ago and have been itching to share it with you!UDI48, color_challenges, not_so_seriously, manhattan_flower, elegant_lines, big_shot, shop_online, stmapin_up, humor, thank_you, Sharon_Field

And yes, the tag line at the bottom of the card really does say “Thank you from the bottom of my butt…”  UDI48, color_challenges, not_so_seriously, manhattan_flower, elegant_lines, big_shot, shop_online, stmapin_up, humor, thank_you, Sharon_Field

LOL, the matching sentiment for the inside of the card says “….It’s a lot bigger than my heart!”  In addition to this hilarious pair and image, there are two more images, 6 equally funny quips, and “happy birthday” too!

Imagine yourself making a card in recognition of a co-worker’s birthday… and you need to get everyone to sign it. You know the drill… chasing people down for signatures, emailing, calling… Not with this card, LOL… they’ll be lining up to see and sign it!! See.. it’s just a MUST HAVE stamp set!

So… I just had to add an embossed and scalloped heart to the inside of the card as well!  It’s the Large Heart Punch, embossed with the Manhattan Flower Textured Embossing Folder (TEF).  The small scallop edge around the heart was created using two Scallop Oval Punches, trimmed and clipped to curve around the edges of the heart and easily attached with Mini Glue Dots!

Lots of texture and brads are included in the card layers too.  I even broke out my paper crimper tool to crimp the Pear Pizzazz card stock!  The Very Vanilla Background was embossed using the Elegant Lines TEF and Big Shot Machine.  I use Elegant Lines on a lot of fall and winter cards because the pattern resembles the movement of wind and/or swirling leaves or snow.

The focal image was colored with Stampin’ Write Markers.  I decided to use Basic Gray for her hair as it looked a bit more realistic than it did when I used a Basic Black Marker.

Today’s UDI color challenge #48 called for Basic Black, Always Artichoke and Pear Pizzazz.  I’ve added Very Vanilla to the mix… and you can add a neutral too, when you play along!

Simply created a card, scrapbook page, or project using our UDI48 challenge colors, and then upload to your personal blog or an online gallery (Splitcoaststampers, Photobucket, etc.) and then visit the Utah Divas International Blog to add the URL of your post or gallery creation using the linky tool at the bottom of the post.  Everyone is welcome to play along, and you can use your favorite stamps and products too.

Love this card!! My sister sent me a thank you card with this on it (not SU) & I thought it was great! So when I saw it in the new book I was thrilled! I love the colors in this card because other than purples some greens are my faves, too!!
