SU Teeny Tiny Wishes with Papillon Potpourri

Can you believe I had ONE tag with one of the colors for Dynamic Duos this week?


I checked my neatly filed retired stash (that is the only neatly filed thing in the stamp center these days!) and found one 1 1/2 inch by 1 inch piece of Pale Plum. Then I remembered years ago I picked up some tags off a demo on ebay…I found them, and there was the Pale Plum. So I had my design with a tag picked for me!

SU By the Tide

Lisa has a fun challenge for us this week at the Friday Mashup #152


1. Create a project using a “Nautical Theme”.

2. Create a “One Layer Card”

3. Or mash it up and create a project with the “One Layer Card with a Nautical Theme”.

SU has a few current “nautical” sets, and the Design Team came up with varied ways to use them this week. I chose to use the shells from the SU By The Tide stamp set. To mash it up and keep it one layered, I sponged four squares to be the frames for my shells. To be honest, I wanted to use four different images but each time I went through the sponging and then masked off the white border with a post-it note to stamp just a portion of the image, it did not stamp a clean line at my mask so…I just picked one of the image that fit in my square!

SU Four You Birthday Wishes

Just a quick and simple one today…


I used the colors from Color Throwdown # 284 to whip up this gender neutral card. I used the SU Four You stamp set that I just received along with a MFT Chevron die I got as a gift from my mom;) Hmmm…those Birthday Wishes looked lined up straight to me until I took the photo…just a teensy bit off but that gives it some handmade character, huh?

SU Affection Collection

It’s time for another Black Tie Challenge at the Dynamic Duos # 95. This week we are mixing More Mustard with Basic Black and an option of dry embossing.


I was so sad when SU retired More Mustard- it was the perfect fall color. I forgot to stock up on the More Mustard card stock because I thought I had a few packs but found out later that I had 3 of Not Quite Navy that was being retired as well. And of course, I ordered a Not Quite Navy before retirement. Just can’t win in this card (stock) game…lol

I did however have some pretty More Mustard DSP that used to come in color packs so I used it. I liked the vintage wallpaper pattern so I mixed it with the retired SU Affection Collection and some pearls. In person, the black ink is dark and rich but the photo has it a bit washed out. When I played with it in photoshop the More Mustard went crazy. So you will have to take my word for it…oh, and the image that has embossing around the edge is perfectly placed on the black diamond but the photo angle makes it look off….blah, blah, blah…thanks for looking and reading my ramblings! Don’t forget to ahead over to see what the fantastic Design Team members came up this week…

SU Teeny Tiny Wishes for a Happy St. Patrick’s Day

It’s Friday Mashup time again…time seems to be flying by- it’s already almost St. Patty’s Day! Heidi has a challenge for us to use a sketch and a rainbow theme this week.


Create a project using the “Sketch”.
Create a project with “Rainbows or Rainbow Colors”.
Or Mash it up and create a project with the “Sketch and Rainbows or Rainbow Colors”.

Well, wasn’t it just grand that my favors for my wonderful stamping crew the last two days were Pots of Gold at the end of a rainbow! Of course, I did not mash it up with the fun sketch. Will you mash it up this week? Make sure to play along…The Friday Mashup # 151.

SU Teeny Tiny Wishes Pot of Gold FM

SU Teeny Tiny Wishes St. Patrick's Day Close Up

I used the SU Top Note Die to make the pot that I tucked some “green” tea into with a sentiment from SU Teeny Tiny Wishes. To make my rainbow, I simply stacked my Ovals of Rich Razzleberry, Tempting Turquoise, Gumball Green, Daffodil Delight, Only Orange (retired), and Real Red and cut each in half and adhered to the back of the Basic Black Top Note Pot of Gold. I just love making these little treats for my gals;)
