SU All Things Thanks with Flowering Flourishes

October 24, 2017

My little girl got married a few weeks ago…the pace has slowed down a little bit since then but last week I got an SOS from her asking for some elegant thank you cards she could make quickly before she started back to work. And, she was coming over in five minutes and had to run…I ran upstairs and pulled out my SU All Things Thanks stamp set. Little did I know it had the best sentiment for her cards!

Oh, and her beautiful flowers are made of PAPER! And, no, I did not make them but you can be sure, I know all the tools in my stamping center could have…lol. I knew you guys would truly appreciate the paper flowers!

I used the retired SU Flowering Flourishes stamp set for a bold background that was not ony quick and easy but coordinated well with the font in the sentiment!

When designing this card, I had the Creating Pretty Cards Challenge #76 in mind…

why not complete two tasks at the same time?


Although the card design is simple, the fun fold adds some flair!

Why don’t you play along with the Creating Pretty Cards Challenge this month? You already have the sketch to inspire you! Head over to Craft Project Central to check it out:)

October 18, 2017

On November 1…Stampin’ Up will be releasing their

NEW Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers!!!


With Stampin’ Blends…

  • You can add just the right amount of color where you need it with either of the dual tips- a brush tip or a fine-point tip.
  • You can purchase each color in a light and a dark shade marker, available individually or in a combo pack (except Ivory and Bronze.)
  • You can feel confident purchasing them in your favorite coordinating Stampin’ Up colors because Stampin’ Up has done intensive in-house testing for evaporation and life testing and are really happy with the results! The Press Fit Seal prevents air from entering the barrel and causing evaporation. The nestable lids are easy to keep track of and have a tight fit for long-lasting color.

I have to say my style is clean is simple so it is always a challenge for me to color but WOW…these alcohol markers work magic on my paper!


Along with the release of the new Stampin’ Blend alcohol markers, SU is also offering

a stamp set called Color Me Happy and a separate Project Kit that makes 16 cards-

both sold individually or as a Bundle with a 10% discount!
