SU Perennial Birthday Diagonal Split Card Video Tutorial

March 19, 2018

Happy Monday, friends!
It’s funny how I have been making cards for over 15 years now
but some older techniques are new to me since I have never used some of them!
I tried out the Diagonal Split technique on this card using the SU Perennial Birthday stamp set.

I made a video for you showing how I made this fun card.
I have a few shadows lurking since I am still working on lighting at night…



Here are the measurements for cutting the split out of the front  4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ panel of the card:

SU Apron Of Love with a Basket Weave Pie!

March 16, 2018

Have you seen any of the cards made using the Basket Weave Embossing Folder for a pie top?
They are just so cute! I remember when I got mine, my first thought was a lattice pie top.
As it kept popping up in blogland, I decided to use the idea on this card.

I used the pretty Tutti Frutti and Wood Textues  6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper Stacks to create
a rustic background for my Lemon Lime Twist apron. The smallest Stitched Shapes circle and the
new 1-3/8″ scallop circle punch made my cute little pie. I used a scrap of retired Real Red ribbon.

The apple image is found in the SU Picnic with You Bundle.
Seemed appropriate, don’t you think?

SU Picnic with You

March 9, 2018

I played around with the SU Picnic with You Bundle yesterday.
I am pretty proud of myself since it was one of the first bundles I ordered from
the Occasions catalog, and it only took me 2-1/2 months to get ink on it!!!

I was inspired by two great card challenge sites:

The Paper Players #383

Freshly Made Sketches #327

I really liked the sketch!
