SU So Detailed Thinlits with Falling in Love and So in Love

March 6, 2017

We made this pretties at class last week. Everyone was so taken, as I was, with the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper and the intricate die cut from the So Detailed Thinlits.

I love how you can place the die cut in so many different ways…on top, on bottom, and even on the side vertically as you have probably seen on Pinterest. Such a pretty die that was super easy to cut out. And, oh my, what about those beautiful Falling in Love Embellishments…swoon.

So many sentiments from the So In Love stamp set fit in the Stitched Shapes oval die as seen below, and you can put them inside as well since each is a “a day to celebrate.”

I love how Stampin’ Up has incorporated sentiment fonts from various stamp sets
into a suite like they did with this one from SU Suite Sentiments.

I decided to share these with Sandy’s Cut It Out theme Challenge #334 at the Paper Players.

SU Lift Me Up with Carried Away DSP from Sale-a-bration!

February 4, 2017

We had fun at our product classes this weekend using the SU Lift Me Up Bundle:)

This is one of the cards we made using the Sale-a-bration Carried Away Designer Series Paper.

The first thing I did was die cut the hot air balloon from the patterned navy paper.
Then, I adhered the DSP to the Crushed Curry card base.
I inlaid a white hot air balloon inside the open space of the DSP.
So that is how I got a yellow balloon!

A little color for the inside, too!

SU High Tide

January 23, 2017

The new SU High Tide stamp set will make you feel like an artist when you are finished making a card. It is so EASY to create a scene with the sand, grass, lighthouse, birds, and water! The shadow on the lighthouse really finishes the scene…

su-high-tide-fms

In retrospect, I used Basic Gray for the shadow which I think was a good idea but I carried it through on the birds on the land and in the sky but next time, I think I may use black for both of the birds. What do you think?

A little insight into this card…

As we were watching our Steelers go down the drain last night, my mind wandered off to the Freshly Made Sketch Challenge # 271.  So I inconspicuously excused myself to make this card.

I was thinking of how the light could be captured inside the design element in the sketch. Then my search for a sentiment…YOU LIGHT UP MY LIFE…came from the Jar of Love stamp set. There is also one in the Annual catalog’s Hostess Set No Pun Intended.

Look at the neat images you can use to paint your landscape…

SU Special Reason and Timeless Textures with Delicate Details

January 11, 2017

I won the SU Special Reason stamp set at our SU event in November. I wasn’t too excited since I wanted the Nailed it Bundle! HAHAHA But then I got it out and started experimenting with it…needless to say, it is a cool stamp set with very versatile framelits that coordinate:)

su-special-reason-grayrose-card

I used Basic Gray cardstock with Rose Red cardstock- I love Rose but somehow don’t use it very often. I used Smoky Slate ink for the distressed border.

su-special-reason-grayrose

The red rubber stamp has a rough surface that makes a neat slightly distressed image. You can see that on the inside of the card.

I thought the SU Timeless Textures stamp set would coordinate so well with the vintage-distressed feel of this card. Look how many images are in the stamp set!!

And, of course, a touch of lace just finishes the card! That lace image comes from the FREE Sale-a-bration item called Delicate Details. Order $50 and get this FREE!
