SU Polka Dot Pieces

It’s time to get creative at the Friday Mashup # 162.


  Here is Tara’s fun challenge for us this week:

Create a card with a removable or moveable part.

Create a card with stripes.


Mash it up by creating a card with a removable/moving part and stripes.

I mashed it up this week by creating a “Bookmark Card” using Blackberry Bliss diagonal stripes from the NEW Moonlight Designer Paper Stack coming out on June 2nd. The bookmark is perforated so it can be easily torn off by the recipient. I punched the top of the bookmark with the Scallop Tag Punch and adorned it with the new Blackberry Bliss ribbon.

I used the new Hello, Honey card stock along with the Blackberry Bliss and Hello, Honey ink for my flowers then stamped the stems using the new Mossy Meadow ink.

The flowers were easily punched out with the 1 3/4″ and 7/8″ Scallop punches and the 3/4″ circle punch. I popped up the layers of the flower on front of the card but left the bookmark tag flower one dimensional to fold inside the card.

This was so much fun to make with the SU Polka Dot Pieces stamp set. I just got it as an incentive from my upline, and it has become a new favorite of mine:)


Isn’t it just so cute? And look how many punches coordinate with the set: not only the  1 3/4″ and 7/8″ Scallops and 3/4″ circle I used but also the Elegant Butterfly and the Bird Builder punch. It’s a great set to have in your collection!

Those POLKA DOTS  and round shaped scallop flowers made me play along with the FUSION Card Challenge this week, too!

SU Million and One

I hope you all are having a wonderful Memorial Day with family and friends celebrating the men and women who have served and are serving our country now. I also want to acknowledge the loved ones of those servicemen and women who sacrifice as well as they support their loved ones who serve. You are truly fabulous people! This is for you:

Jen M.’s sketch at Freshly Made Sketches # 137 this week was a simple one that provided inspiration for indefinite possibilities.


I started my card and wanted to gussy it up some more with pearls on the all the flourished letters but my daughter saw it as it is sitting on my desk when she took a break from her NCLEX studying and commented how she LOVED it. She said, “Mom, I love all your cards but I really like simple ones like this.” So, I kept it CAS.

SU Thoughts and Prayers with new IN COLORS 2014-16

It’s been a week since I posted a card! The family went on a cruise to celebrate the three graduations that happened in the last two weeks. Had to share this cheesy photo…


 I had planned to schedule some posts before I left but life got in the way! So, I took the cards with me planning to post while I was cruisin’ but the internet was way too sketchy to wait around for a post to upload, and it was exorbitantly expensive to boot. However, I see you all survived without me but know I was thinking of you all…lol.

We got back to Our Orlando home earlier than I expected  so I was able to get

Sara’s Friday Mashup #161 card finished and posted!

Here’s your Mashup Challenge:
Create a project with “Trees.”
Create a project with “Heat or Dry Embossing.”
Or Mash it up and create a project with “Embossing and Trees.”


I knew I would only be in FLA for a few days so I only brought 6 stamp sets and the new IN COLORS paper and ink with me- in case of withdrawal, of course. I did not have any of my embossing folders or fancy tools with me so I went super CAS with this one using the new green Mossy Meadow and the new yellow Hello, Honey. I am always surprised how the new  colors seem to be similar to current colors but when they are put against them- they are quite different! I was so happy to see the SU Thoughts and Prayers made the cut for the new catalog coming out on June 2nd. I did use a random green button that matched quite nicely with the Mossy Meadow on this card:

SU Thoughts and Prayers FM

Card Recipe:
STAMPS: SU Thoughts and Prayers
INK: SU Mossy Meadow
PAPER: SU Naturals Ivory, SU Mossy Meadow, SU Hello, Honey
ACCESSORIES: random matching green button, SU Naturals Twine
TOOLS: SU Large Oval Punch, SU Scallop Punch, SU Dimensionals

FYI: The tree stamped panels are each 1 1/4″ by 3″ adhered to a Mossy Meadow rectangle with about a 1/16 to 1/8″ border around and in between the panels. I then adhered the image to a rectangle of Hello, Honey with a 1/4″ border all around it.
