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.

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!

SU Memorable Moments with SU Blessed by God

April 15, 2015

My sweet friend needed a card for a priest celebrating his 40th Anniversary serving in the church. Wow…what a milestone! And, wow, I had to come up with a good idea…well, truth be told, it was not too hard since I had the SU Memorable Moments stamp. The name says it all- Memorable Moments. Of course, the SU Blessed by God set worked in well, too. I just stamped in a cross under the celebratory message and added an inside sentiment that was perfect! I think that the fancy, ornate flourishes on the Filigree Frame embossing folder tie in well with the beautiful church architecture I am sure the priest is surrounded by daily but the little flowers were a tad too feminine so I just covered them with a black accent strip across the middle.

I used the colors at ColourQ #287 this week-

Basic Black, Basic Gray, white, and a ONE spot of color.

SU Memorable Moments 25th Anniversary

December 12, 2014

The upcoming Christmas holiday had me thinking of silvery celebrations.

Little did I know, it would lead me to making a 25th Anniversary card

for my Friday Mashup #189 Challenge!



This week’s Mashup Challenge is:

Create a project using “Basic Gray or Smoky Slate & Silver.”

Create a project using “Dry or Heat Embossing.”


Mash it Up! and create a project “using the colors Silver & Gray with some Embossing.”

I think these colors stand alone -clean and simple- with a touch of elegance. I like that the Filigree Embossing Folder that I initially connected with Christmas (since its release was timely) is actually an all occasion embossing folder- notice the sweet little flower that sits at the top and bottom? I have had my SU Memorable Moments set for a while, and I was so pleased how easy it was to custom design a card using all the images in the set. Notice how the Labels Framelits coordinate with the stamp set? And, of course, I used my faithful Stamp-a-ma-jig to place each stamp in my sentiment.

This will be my last time hosting a challenge as a Friday Mashup Design Team member,

and I would love to see you post in the gallery!

I am excited for you to meet the new team members joining the Friday Mashup in a few weeks- they are such a talented crew!
