SU Springtime Impressions with Itty Bitty Greetings

May 18, 2018

Happy Friday, kids! I made the quickest card in my history of cardmaking this morning…

die cut, sponge, stamp, die cut…DONE.

I used a Whisper White Notecard so I did not even have to score….hahaha.
I simply snipped off two little parts off the die cut, and it is the perfect size.
So, the die can be used for both A2 cards and notecads. Nice.

I wanted to play around with the NEW Springtime Impressions die
and see how it looked sponged with my daubers..so easy.
So easy I thought why not share my first attempt with all of you today?
I jazzed it up with some of the NEW Mint Macaron Faceted Dots
and used a NEW die from the Stitched Labels Framelits:)

That is the NEW Highland Heather ink- to me a very nice purple- the cardstock is a perfect match.
The NEW Gorgeous Grape is a lovely darker purple as well. So excited to have these new colors as “good” purple is hard to find! After typing purple a few times, I am thinking it is a funny word- made me giggle:)

Have a great weekend-
I am planning on playing with my new goodies to have fun stuff for my June luncheon in Pittsburgh!
Love my stamping gals so much- can’t wait to see them again!!!
Had fun with my Florida gang last night! How blessed I am!

SU Rooted in Nature with Nature’s Poem DSP Sneak Peek

May 2, 2018

It’s been a crazy few weeks traveling but I finally got to finish up my Make and Take from April 7!
Usually, I don’t finish mine thinking I will change it up some how when I get home.
This time, I just tweaked it a teensy bit so it looks a tad different from some on Pinterest:)

 

I used the NEW IN COLOR Grapefruit Grove Cardstock and ink on the leaves.
It is so bright and fresh!
I added some NEW Tranquil Tide Baker’s Twine, a few pearls from the NEW Share What You Love Artisan Pearls, and a copper metallic leaf from the NEW Leaves Trinkets.

SU Beautiful Day Butterfly

April 27, 2018

Big, Bold, and Bright… don’t you think? I was in that kind of mood this week!

I am going to share it with the gang over at  Stamp Ink Paper #147  for the Color It Challenge this week.
I used my Stampin’ Blends to color this butterfly- so fun to smoothly glide on the alcohol color:)
A few rhinestones to bling it up…or maybe cover a stray black smudge?

I even jazzed up the inside!

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!
