SU Charming Cafe

January 31, 2018

Oo la la…I made a card with my SU Charming Cafe!

And, of course, it opens to reveal the bistro table and chairs…

It looks like it took a long time to make but actually, it did not.
Maybe because I am still so happy we have the Stampin’ Blends to color so beautifully without any streaks!

I used 1″ x 4-1/4″ strips of the Fresh Florals Powder Pink DSP on the sides of the card. I added a 1/4″ strip of Whisper White to the inside sides of the DSP to frame the opening.

Check out this video made by Brandi at the SU Home Office…

SU Hold on to Hope Bridge Fold Card Video Tutorial

January 29, 2018

Hello, friends!
I have another fun fold video for you today using the
Hold on to Hope Bundle found in the Occasions Catalog.

Here is how you create a  Bridge Fold Card:

Notice the framelit that cut out the fancy cross below is an additional one that does not coordinate with any image-
how nice to have that, huh? I inlaid the cross in the cut out I made with another die after stamping the foliage.

Here is a simple way to finish off the back to write a message of encouragement or sympathy.

The Hold on to Hope Stamp Set is a versatile one that offers a variety of uses
because of these two sentiments-

You can use this stamp set for many occasions like
a Birthday, a Graduation, a Christening, a Baptism, a Confirmation,
a Holy Communion, or even a Bridal Shower!

SU Birthday Delivery

January 26, 2018

I saw this card on Pinterest created by Jackie Aiken and thought it was super cute!

So, I essentially cased it with some tweaks…

I added a red border around the black panel to pull out the red on his scarf. To make the checkered table cloth, I cut five 3/4″ white squares and adhered them to the bottom of the Basic Black panel which is 3-3/4″ x 5″.
I also brought a cake to the party!

I was tempted to color his face and hair but really liked the red, black and white palette
without any other color added.

This bundle may be a bit pricey at $62 but it has a ton of stamps/framelits in it and it comes with a pack of Designer Series Paper called Birthday Memories that is so festive! I just love the nostalgic look of the stamp set and how easy it is to die cut the stamped images and the images on the Designer Series Paper, too.
And now that we have the Stampin’ Blends, it’s so easy to color them!

Take a look at this Bundle:

And here is the gorgeous Birthday Memories DSP!

SU Barn Door with This Little Piggy

January 24, 2018

It will be Valentine’s Day before you know- one of the biggest card giving days! My mom is going to love this card…although she loves roosters the SU This Little Piggy stamp set is just too cute not to use with the SU Barn Door stamp set! Maybe I will use the rooster from SU Wood Words on her Barn Door birthday card…

I love the sliding mechanism made with the Sliding Door Framelits-
so easy to do! You put one message on the left side…

and slide it over to reveal another message on the right side.
I rounded the corners on the 2-1/2″ x 4″ Whisper White cardstock where I stamped the piggy.
I used Pool Party ink on the bow on the wreath because it was a bit darker than Soft Sky ink.

I am sharing it with The Paper Players Challenge # 337 – the theme of Love Notes:)

Here is a video from the SU Home Office where Brandi shows how
super easy it is to make a card with the Barn Door Bundle:
