SU Apron of Love For Husband

April 20, 2018

I am so excited to show you this card today using
the SU Apron of Love and Bottles and Bubbles Bundles.
It just makes me happy! I used the sentiments from SU Guy Greetings.


I saw this card done by Handmade by Irene with a grill so I got pinspired to make my own!

I tried e-ver-y-thing possible to make that bottom part of the grill that keeps the tripod together. Everything looked goofy- the small oval punch, small circles, small ovals…it was just driving me crazy! In the end, the right piece was right in front of my nose! I just die cut the rolling pin, cut it, and pushed it together!

I used the 1-1/2″ circle punch to make the upper part of the grill.
I just keep thinking it looks like Pac Man…lol.

I did the inside two different ways…

The grass die comes from the Picnic Basket Builder Framelits,
it’s a great way to finish of the inside of the card, don’t you think?

 If you add bring some brews to the BBQ…

it fits into the  “food and drink” theme for Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge # 146

April 24, 2018– Thank you for choosing my card as a winner at Stamp Ink Paper!

SU Petal Palette Silver

February 14, 2018

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends!

In the spirit of LOVE today, I have a wedding/anniversary card to show you using the
SU Petal Palette Bundle.
The Pinewood Planks dry embossed panel is just enough texture to be noticed but lets
the silver embossed roses take center stage on this card.

Silver Heat Embossing pairs so well with Smoky Slate ink.
I usually use Smoky Slate ink to stamp sentiments with delicate fonts, so much easier than heat embossing:)

It’s difficult to see in the photo but I used the beautiful silver foil paper to die cut the scallop oval that borders the Stitched Shapes oval. Some scattered rhinestones finished off the card wonderfully, don’t you think?

SU Daisy Delight

July 26, 2017

Today is my little girl’s birthday! In just two short months she will be walking down the aisle…

So in honor of her today…here is a birthday card made with the  Daisy Delight Bundle.

It’s so easy to create a half daisy- just cut a full size punched flower in half and stagger the petals- a neat alternative look to do with the Daisy Bundle. As you can see, I made a trio of cards using sentiments from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set. I used the coordinating Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper- one of my faves this year!

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 You’ve Got This

June 8, 2015

Happy Monday Morning, sweetie pies!

First, let me say after my fun-filled weekend, that I have been blessed by the most wonderful group of ladies that come and stamp with me each month. We have such a great time together, and each one of them warms my heart. And we were all thankful to kind, sweet Cheryl for surprising us with a delicious birthday cake at the Kick-Off Party on Saturday!

Birthday Cake

The big flowers are gorgeous but what really makes my heart go pitter-pat and catches my eye are the little bee embellishments- the finishing touch on a lovely creation by a talented cake decorator. That is on my bucket list- learn to decorate a cake…

One of the cards we made at our Kick-Off party has the same effect on me as these little bees – a simple embellishment that steals the show even though there is a huge flower image from the SU You’ve Got This that sits center stage.

SU I'm Here for You MintTaupe

SU I'm Here for You Button Close Up

I usually am not taken with this kind of embellishment but oh, I fell for this one!

These resin IN COLOR (2015-17) Blossom Accents are just adorable and come

20 to a package – 4 each in 5 colors-

Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder, Tip Top Taupe,

Delightful Dijon, and Cucumber Crush.

I finished off the inside with a partially stamped flower in Tip Top Taupe ink in the lower corner that really pops off the Very Vanilla and Mint Macaron cardstock.

SU I'm Here for You Mint Taupe Inside

A clean and simple card that was dressed up with a sweet little embellishment and some Stampin’ Dimensionals. I have to say my gals were happy to make this one since I, well, have a tendency to have them jump up, turn around, touch the ground, stamp, punch, die cut, and layer a lot at class! They loved the new Triple Banner Punch that  created a perfect pennant end on the sentiment- just slip in a 1″, 1 1/2″ or 2″ piece of cardstock and boom it’s punched!
