SU Let It Ride Stepped Up

January 18, 2019

WAIT…you have not seen this one…

I am sure you all have made a card and then came up with a way to step it up days or maybe even weeks later? Well, this time it was a week later.
I used Early Espresso as my card base instead of white. I think it worked with the horse color.
I inlaid the Rectangle Stitched  frame with the horse image inside a rectangle I die cut out of the green/blue panel.
This was my first one.

I also wanted to add something to the inside of the card so I repeated the outside on the inside.

My original inside:

 I then inlaid the image inside another green/blue panel like the outside.

I am happy with both but really love the second one with the darker base and matching inside:)

See this post for the materials.

SU Wonderful Romance with Rose Trellis

January 14, 2018

I combined two beautiful new bundles from the Occasions Catalog to make this elegant card. Of course, I was so excited to use the floral image from the Wonderful Romance bundle but also wanted to use the trellis, leaves, and the label from the Rose Trellis dies.. so I did!  The layering ovals fit nicely inside the gold foil label die cut, too! Now, I want to use all the other neat images and dies in both sets…make sure to check them BOTH out:)

SU Let It Ride

January 11, 2018

Stamp, color, die cut…done!

I was so pleased how this turned out.
After working with Balmy Blue over the past few weeks, I am so in love with it.
To be honest, I went through a slight mourning period when Soft Sky and Marina Mist left.
But, I must say, Balmy Blue has filled the void! It is so peaceful, it should be called Calmy Blue…

Remember that Stampin’ Blends bleed because they are alcohol based markers.
So, I stamped and colored on a separate piece of Whisper White Cardstock and die cut it with the Rectangle Stitched Thinlits.
I think I may add a Balmy blue Border around the inside on my next card, don’t you think that would be just perfect?

SU Origami Window Frame Card Video Tutorial


January 9, 2018

Time for another Watch It Wednesday Video!
I used a fantastic new stamp set called Life is Grand found in the Occasions Catalog.
I just love how that little butterfly sits on the wish:)

1/17/19 I found who inspired me!!!! It was Brenda Keenan! Thanks so much, Brenda:)))

I went to town figuring it out so I could put a butterfly in the middle square opening. Then, I did not know what it was called so I asked on a demonstrator site, I was flooded with answers, links to Pinterest pages, and video tutorials!!!

 I guess it’s been around FOREVER!!!I I was opened up to a new technique to peruse on Pinterest along with some very simple, no measuring folding tutorials. I kind of felt a little dumb after I asked- hahaha – but now I am enlightened.  I combined a few name suggestions and called it an Origami Window Frame Fun Fold. I made my video before I even asked my fellow demos for the name, and since I tweaked it for the size, I think it was worth it:)

That gorgeous butterfly in the middle is punched out with the Butterfly Duet punch from the Butterfly Gala Bundle.
It is punched out the ABSOLUTELY STUNNING Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper- a Sale-a-Bration gift with purchase!!!! Click below to see all the offerings!
