SU Tuxedo Card using Bow Punch

December 4, 2016

My daughter is in wedding mode for October 2017…save the dates, invitations, bridesmaids invites, and even groomsman invites. While preparing for her brother’s wedding a couple months ago where she was the Maid of Honor, her fiance mentioned how HE wanted to make invites for his groomsmen like she did with her “champagne cheers” invites for her bridesmaids.
So she surprised him with these tuxedo cards with some help
from Australian SU demonstrator Diane Barnes:

It was so fun to have her in my stamping room figuring everything out as she made them especially the cute bow ties made with the SU Bow Builder Punch. I love how she made the cumberbund or cummerbund (the second being the correct spelling and the first being a variant we Americans seem to use) check out WordLady’s take on it HERE.

I think she is a natural crafter who just won’t admit it!!!

BTW, she had to make 11 of these…no, that is not a typo- 11 attendants on each side…

SU Gift Card Holders using Hostess set Time of Year

November 28, 2016

Looking for a neat way to give a gift card this holiday season? Here is a quick and easy one..

su-gift-card-holder-thinking-of-you-2

I made two versions of the card using the SU Warmth and Cheer Designer Series Paper Pack full of “warm” patterns. I used a hostess stamp set from the Annual Catalog called Time of Year . It is a versatile set with all occasion sentiments. As you can see I created a Christmas and a Birthday card.

Here are some directions:

First, you score a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of cardstock at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″ on the 11″ side. You then fold back the 2 3/4 portion into the inside 5 1/2″ score fold (see photo below). On the edge that will fold back to the 5 1/2″ score, trim 1/8″ off so it fits flat unimpeded by the fold.

Now slide that trimmed edge the whole way inside the Classic Label Punch in the middle of the paper. After you punch the slot, you will have to slide the punch 1/8″ to the left and then right to widen the slot for the gift card holder. See photos below:

classic-label-1

classic-label-2

classic-label-3

Adhere the flap down around the edges of the flap so the gift card has a pocket to slide into.

To hold the card closed just pop some dimensionals on the top right hand corner under something like the circle I have with the holly and berries or the birthday cake (off hand, I can’t remember where it came from) on it and slide the flap under it. The confetti comes from a new stamp coming out in the Ocassions Catalog.

Here is the Birthday version:

This is one of the cutest ways I have seen to make a quick and easy gift card holder…I bet you can’t resist making one now…have fun and share it with me if you make one!

SU Totally Trees with Stitched Shapes Framelits

November 25, 2016

I was playing around with the SU Totally Trees stamp set this weekend…LOVE IT!

So many fun things to do with a set with this many images…

I also had the SU Stitched Shapes Framelits on my desk so I introduced them to each other, and this is what came out of it:

I even invited two of the newer In Colors 2016-18- Flirty Flamingo and Peek-a-boo Peach to the party. I think they hit it off, don’t you think?

The sentiment is from SU Bunch of Blossoms stamp set. Don’t overlook this stamp set with its coordinating punch either! I really like the font used for the sentiments in this set and they fit in the Stitched Shapes Framelits, too…and the parts of the flowers kind of look like seashells and starfish to me.  Gotta love the stems, too. I need to make you a card soon to show it off, huh?
