SU Beautiful Bouquet with Everyday Jar Framelits

August 26, 2017

I played around with some watercoloring with the Beautiful Bouquet Bundle after seeing so many pretty cards done with this technique- the first one I saw was Sandi MacIver’s creation that inspired me. The bouquet is so gorgeous it can just stand alone on a card but I placed mine in an embossed vellum jar:)

I used my Ruffled Embossing Folder for the backround- so elegant, so vintage…don’t you think?

A bit of gold really dresses up the card, too!

Notice the only stamping on the card is the sentiment! However, there are a TON of flowers and greenery in the set- it is so packed with versatile stamps that mix and match with so many other sets. Take a look on Pinterest under “Stampin’ Up Beautiful Bouquet.” The flowers were die cut from watercolor paper and then moistened with Flirty Flamingo ink using an aquapainter so the Berry Burst ink would run a bit when added last with the aquapainter again. Every one turns out differently so play around and don’t be too picky!

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!

Happy Birthday, Gorgeous Bundle

June 14, 2017

We had our Annual Catalog Kick-Off Luncheon/Dinner last Saturday and Sunday. We made three cards, fueled up with some food, and made three more cards. It just blows me away how blessed I am to have all these crafty ladies in my life! Thank you, Stampin’ Up for bringing us all together!!!

Here is one of the cards we made using the delicious new Berry Burst and Lemon Lime colors:)


It is hard to see in the photo, but I embossed the white panel with the retired Polka Dots EF. Any embossing folder would add texture to the card, though. I just could not get my paws on my new OH MY STARS embossing folder at the time…lol. Isn’t that new self adhesive In Color Itty Bitty Bow just too cute?!?! And, we tried out the new adhesive sheets on the Happy Birthday thinlit which was easy peasy!

Look at these cute little images on the inside, too!

I love that the Happy Birthday thinlit is a stand alone item, but the stamp set it is bundled with at a 10% discount is awesome! I love the variety of sentiments, the balloons, flowers/leaves/stems, and the little tassel and bow:) I say it’s a little bit of everything! And, of course, many of us need that “belated” sentiment from time to time…

SU Cake Crazy…a real sweet set!

April 23, 2017

Oh.my.goodness…I almost overlooked this super fun stamp set!

It is so easy to make a really festive card!

You just stamp the cake layer images, overlay some of them and voila- instant fun!

And, it not only has images but also WORDS to play with, too!

You could even mix and match the words and cake layers.

A great way to finish off the inside is by punching out some candles with the Candle Border punch.

SU Cool Treats for Creating Pretty Cards Challenge # 70

April 15, 2017

I played along with the sketch at Creating Pretty Cards Challenge #70 over at

Craft Project Central.

You can play along and get a chance to win a free month’s subscription of your choice.

I am prepping for a Cool Treats Bundle Class soon and
had some of this and some of that left over with cutting the Tasty Treats DSP so I used it up! Thanks to my friend, Sandy Mott, for inspiration that fit in with the sketch, too! I love when every little scrap is used:)

*The sentiment comes for the 2017 SAB Designer Tee stamp set.
