SU Graceful Glass Vellum with Painted Glass Sneak Peek

May 30, 2018

I got out my Stampin’ Blends and my Graceful Glass Vellum DSP to play last week. I turned over the vellum to the “not good side” and colored it with Dark Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, and Cherry Cobbler.I set it aside to dry until morning. When I returned, it was just okay so I colored it again a second time and WOW!

This photo is not enhanced and look how bright and bold the colors are colored twice!
I used the Everyday Label tag punch to make the Bermuda Bay tag. Then I stamped the sentiment on a 1″ wide piece of Whisper White, centered it, and punched it out. I adhered the white strip to the tag and added some Cherry Cobbler Enamel Shapes.
I think the lines of the label work well with the font and the stained glass design.

SU Rooted in Nature Triple Time Stamping Video

May 28, 2018

To those who fought (and continue to fight), to those who risked (and continue to risk),
and to those who gave their lives (and continue to give their service)
for us as a country…I say, “You are Wonderful! May you celebrated this Memorial Day!”

Here is a video showing how to do Triple Time Stamping:

You can use any stamp set!
The dimensions for the stamped panels and the bordered cardstock on the Rooted in Nature Card above are as follows:
Very Vanilla (VV) to bordered colored cardstock (Cajun Craze on this card).
2″ x 3-¼” VV to  2-¼” x 3-½” CC
3″ x 4-¼” VV to  3-¼” x 4 ½” CC
4″ x 5¼” VV to  5 1/2” x 8 ½” (CC folded card at 4-1/4″ on the 8-1/2″ side) Inside VV 4″ x 5-¼”


1. Place a small dab of SU Two-way glue in the center of each Very Vanilla (VV) cardstock (CS) and let dry so it becomes tacky. You can also use a bit of repositionable tape, just remember you will be taking each piece apart in the end.
2. Using the tackiness of the glue or repositionable tape, center the smallest VV CS on the medium sized VV CS. Then center the medium-sized one onto the largest VV CS.
3. Firmly stamp the leaf images in Cajun Craze, Blackberry Bliss, and Garden Green inks over all three VV CS pieces that are tacked together. You will notice a break in the image around where the papers end but this will be covered up once you mount it on the Cajun Craze base that goes between each VV stamped piece.
4. Carefully separate the three VV CS pieces and mount the largest one on the Cajun card base.
5. Place the medium sized VV CS onto its corresponding Cajun Craze border and mount to the card base with the stamped leaf images matching up.
6. Mount the smallest VV CS stamped image onto the Cajun Craze Cardstock.
7. Mount the smallest bordered image onto the medium-sized bordered image and add the banner. Very Vanilla banner is 1-¼” x 4″ stamped and punched with the Triple Banner Punch. The Garden Green banner border is 1-½” x 4″. Trim as needed.

SU Accented Blooms Sneak Peek

May 23, 2018

Happy Wednesday to you! I have a sneak peek of a new stamp set
coming out on June 1st in the Annual Catalog. It is called Accented Blooms.

The stamp set pairs with the Pretty Label Punch that is bundled with the
Truly Tailored stamp set in the current Occasions catalog.

I love that the lined image around the label is larger than the punched out shape.
Can you imagine how many sentiments you can put in that spot
in addition to the ones in the stamp set itself?

As you can see, I took a short cut and did not color each flower individually-
you could make a quick set of one layer notecards with this stamp set
changing up sentiments and colors as accents!

I am sharing this card with The Paper Players #394 “Blooms” Challenge this week:)

SU Better Together Hinge Stamping with the Stamparatus Video

May 21, 2018

I tried hinge stamping using my Stamparatus.
Look how straight and evenly spaced the sentiment and the images are on this CAS card!

The Stamparatus has the unique feature of hinged plates that can be removed
and stepped down to stamp again! I have a video to show you how easy it is to hinge stamp.


I just love the touch of stitching made with the Stitched Labels Framelits on the card, don’t you?
