SU Flower Patch Bundle

February 28, 2016

SU Flower Frenzy Magnetic Note Holder

Here is a fun way to organize a messy… um- well-used desk. I made a desktop bulletin board from a wire paper holder from Office Max (for approx. 8 1/2″ x 11″ paper). I used some retired black and white DSP with a subdued yet trendy background and popped some colorful flowers stamped from the Flower Patch stamp set.I stamped the NOTES from a retired SU stamp set called Metro Style Alphabet but ANY alphabet  stamp set or die cut letter would work for this project.

Look at these cool images you can choose from to create various flower combinations…

The bright flowers  are a cinch to die cut with the coordinating Flower Fair Framelits! I put magnets on the back of the flowers with the black border so I can pop a note on my wire desktop bulletin board! I am thinking this would be a great teacher gift, don’t you think?

It would be like you are giving the teacher flowers all year!

SU A Nice Cuppa with SU Balloon Celebration

Hey friends, it is a Card Maker’s Choice at Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #36 so I thought I would share my Stamp-Du-Jour which is currently a favorite of mine… SU A Nice Cuppa with sentiments from Balloon Celebration. I have fallen in love with both sets as I prepare for a Product Class and a new Guest Designer spot I will be doing in April!  Here is one that will not be in the showcase:

SU A Nice Cuppa Wisteria Tag

I can’t help mentioning how the spoon is one of the scallops-just makes me smile.

There’s a little cuppa inside, too…

I just don’t use Wisteria Wonder enough…it is so pretty!

There is no doubt how wonderful the sentiments in the SU Balloon Celebration blend with the SU A Nice Cuppa stamp set. I love that both stamp sets are bundled- A Nice Cuppa with the Cups and Kettle Framelits and Balloon Celebration with the Balloon Bouquet Punch but also have components that can stand alone if you wish.

SU Suite Sayings with Botanical Builder Framelits

February 21,2016

SU Suite Sayings with Botanicals Fern die

I wanted to share this CAS card using the SU Botanical Builders Framelits.
Boy, that set of framelits is amazing…

I used just one stamp from the SU Suite Sayings stamp set. Imagine making a bunch of these cards and adding sentiments as you need them…sympathy, birthday, thank you.
*I was inspired by Linda Heller’s “white flower design on white” at our meeting:)

 If you pay close attention to all the sentiments- you will see a lot of the fonts coordinate with other sets in both the Occasions catalog and the Annual catalog.
I liked how this particular sentiment matched the fern die cut.

I am sharing this card with those playing along at The Card Concept # 49  Floral Radiance. I consider it CAS since it is uncluttered with lots of white space, limited layers, and quick to create. I was inspired by the top color in the photo since it was “minty” and matched one of the colors showcased in the SU It’s my Party Enamel Dots!
