SU Winter Woods

October 18, 2018

I used my SU Winter Woods Bundle again for this card…

This time, I used the cluster of trees, the pine tree die cut , and that super cool wavy edgelit.
I started out with this card made with a Shaded Spruce card base with a white panel.
I liked the clean and simple look but wanted something with a little more something.

Then I remembered I could use an embossed vellum panel to create a snowy scene.
This added another layer and more visual appeal, don’t you think?
I really liked that effect on the card below!

*Thanks, Tami Voss Kiemel, for sparking my imagination with the vellum, too.

Take a look at my video to see how I used the wavy edgelit from the
In the Woods Framelits to create the snow drift.
The same measurements are used on both cards.

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

SU Farmhouse Christmas

October 13, 2018

I got an awesome card from one of my favorite friends and stampers, Janet Munden.
I was so wowed by her card that I totally cased it!

I was so impressed with Janet’s layout- isn’t that burlap ribbon just so cool?
I thought the Farmhouse Designer Series Paper was a perfect addition, too!

Take a look at the fantastic Farmhouse Christmas Bundle:

That picket fence is so darn cute…I gotta make a card with it to show you…
if I don’t soon, remind me…lol.

SU Beautiful Blizzard

October 4, 2018

I hear some people have spotted snow flurries already, can you believe that?
Well, today, all of you are going to see snowflakes…

 

I used the Beautiful Blizzard Bundle to make this Clean and Simple card that is a “winter” card.
It can be sent as soon as the flurries fly!
It would make a great birthday card or encouragement card, don’t you think?

I designed this card with a larger border around the stamped panel.
The card base front is 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″, the Bermuda Bay is 4″ x 5-1/4″,
then I skipped the next layer (that would be 3-3/4″ x 5″)
and  finished it off with the white stamped panel of 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″.

 

The 4″ x 5″ die is super cool- pun intended. You get a blizzard of snowflakes with a one run through the Big Shot.

SU Flourish Filigree Trio of Cards Video Tutorial

October 1, 2018

I have a video for you today using the Flourish Filigree Stamp Set and the Pretty Label Punch.

I loved how Judy May placed a little bit of ribbon off the bottom of the tag on one of her cards.
I was inspired to do the same, doesn’t it add so much to the card?

Below is the Real Red/Silver version in landscape position but with the stamp in the same place on the Stamparatus.
I made up a few different versions but only had to get the stamp placement done once on the Stamparatus!

Here is the Thank You card I did for my mother-in-law’s passing last month.

Measurements for all three cards:
Card Base for the  Red and the Elegant Eggplant 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ on 8-1/2″ side and the Card Base for the Black/Gold  4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on the 11″
The next layer in from the card base is 4″ x 5-1/4″(gold/silver/eggplant)
The stamped panel is 3-1/2″ x 5″
