SU Musical Season Bundle

October 13, 2017

I have to say the SU Musical Season Bundle is one of my favorites in the Holiday Catalog.

And, I love that the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper is perfect to use with the stamp set.

The DSP has 24 sheets in it for $13, too- a great deal! 

Take another look, it is an elegant, classy stamp set for not only Christmas but also for the musician in your life:)

SU Brightly Lit

September 27, 2017

Doesn’t this card remind you of a scene from Dicken’s A Christmas Carol?

Or my favorite rendition of the Dicken’s classic…The Muppet Christmas Carol!!



A few months ago my friend, Julie Ross, sent me a card using the Sweetheart Textured Impressions Embossing Folder as a cobblestone ground base for the Bike Ride stamp set. I thought it was genius! I decided to use it as a cobblestone walkway to create a Christmas scene with the SU Brightly Lit Stamp Set above. Paired with the Softly Falling TIEF, the Brightly Lit Bundle creates a beautiful nostalgic Dickens kind of Christmas Scene. The middle lamp light and the banner are popped up giving the card even more texture and dimension:)

SU Smitten Mittens

September 4, 2017

I am smitten the new SU Smitten Mittens Bundle!

The stamps with coordinating framelits are just perfect to make a quick WOW card.

Take a look at this cutie I made with the bundle:

The detailed die cut mittens were attached over a solid white mitten, isn’t that neat?
And the Holly Berry Builder Punch added a cute little embellishment for the mittens. Although, I could have connected the mittens with some of the new Tinsel Trim, huh?

You will notice some new items from the Holiday catalog used on this card- the Quilt Top Embossing Folder and the Quilted Christmas 1/4″ Ribbon but you may be looking around the new catalog for the Designer Series Paper with the adorable mittens on it. Well, you won’t find it because it is in the Annual Catalog! You may have overlooked the Be Merry DSP since the holidays were not in sight when the Annual catalog come out in June.

It is super cute, and has a classic Christmas red, green, and white theme. Well, actually, it is Cherry Cobbler but it matches well with the Real Red in the new ribbon:) I love all the multicolored small patterned designs perfect for the bottom of a card.  My DSP is 2″ x 4″ so you get a lot of cards from one 12×12 piece of DSP.

*Think of all the cards you can design with a 2″ x 4″ piece of DSP on the bottom and some focal point on the top- a classic, easy template to use when designing any card.

I used a warm sentiment inside the card found in the SU Hearts Come Home stamp set-

another wonderful set in the new catalog!

SU Colorful Seasons with Color Theory Designer Series Paper

July 5, 2017

This new Color Theory Designer Series Paper is so fun…only one problem…

I wish it came in every color!!!

My next few posts will show you some cards using the different patterns found in the Color Theory DSP. I am showcasing the versatile SU Colorful Seasons stamp set and Seasonal Layers Thinlits, too. All of the cards in this series use a 3″ x 5-1/2″ piece of DSP bordered by a 3-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of coordinating cardstock on a portrait A2 card.

Here is a Christmas/Winter card that I added a Christmas Sentiment from he SU Hang Your Stockings stamp set. I love how the crackled pattern resembles cracked ice:) As seen above, this pattern comes not only in Dapper Denim but also in Crushed Curry, Old Olive, and the new Berry Burst!
