SU Tea Party

Sara has a fun sketch for us this week at the Friday Mashup #145.


1. Create a project with “Sketch.”
2. Create a project using some “Sponging”.
3. Or Mash it Up and create a project with “Sponging using the Sketch.”

I pulled out my SU Tea Party stamp set to create this soft and feminine card. I sponged my lattice background but it looked sooooo baaaaad so I just went clean and thought the sponging on the DSP would suffice for now! But check out what the Design Team has sponged up for this challenge- ah-mazing! I know you will love working with the sketch and adding some sponging to mash it up. We can’t wait to see what you come up with for this challenge…go on, get your stamp on….

I am busy getting my cards/projects packaged up for my February Stamp Classes next week  but took a tiny detour to check into Freshly Made Sketches #121 tonight.

FMS Final 121-001

I used a DSP from the Occasions Fresh Prints Paper Pack with its bright Coastal Cabana, Real Red, and Crumb Cake- I looooove these colors together. Here’s a card that most certainly could be a Valentine or just a quick note to send to a friend in general.


 I love the SU Owl Punch for its adorable Owl but I find myself using it more for the sweet little heart in it…

SU See Ya Later Birthday and Sale-a Bration 2014 Reminder

Good Morning, everyone! I took refuge from the snow and played along with Freshly Made Sketches # 120 last night. I love the talent over there- the DT samples and all the amazing submissions each week are so inspirational! Creative genius Lesley Croghan has started yet another awesome site to inspire us complete with a star studded Design Team called The Card Concept. I decided to pop this card in the gallery under Challenge #2 “Clean and Layered” cards with “texture” added through paper piercing, the embossed pennant, and layers popped up with dimensionals.

I have been focusing on some cool SAB treats since SALE-A-BRATION 2014 starts on TUESDAY, January 28! Such cute stamp sets, DSP, kits, and embellishments available for each $50 purchase made through March 31st.

Check back on Tuesday to see the SAB 2014 Flyer!

Every year I think they can’t get any better and they end up surprising me! I absolutely love the See Ya Later stamp set with its four neat sayings.
