Friends of ours just purchased their first home, and it is beautiful!
We got to go see it over the weekend.
I gave them a gift card tucked in a card I made using some elements from their actual home- the gray, the brown, the white, and the texture on upper part of the house. And…I added in their cat who conveniently is gray! I was so pleased with the white around the brown door just like their house:)
I used the retiring Stampin’ Up At Home with You for the door, the welcome mat, and the lantern.
I added in the chair from the Stampin’ Up Seasonal Layers Framelits and the kitty from the retiring Stampin’ Up Sitting Here Stamp Sets.
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
Enjoy your Memorial Day with family and friends as you remember your loved ones who served their country
and pray for and give thanks to those who are serving our country now.
I just love black and white as a design element and adding in a pop of any color just makes me happy! Adding in red is even better!
I was playing around with my SU Floral Frames Bundle and came up with this:
Simply stamp the foliage image and run it through the Big Shot with the NEW Tufted Embossing Folder. Stamp some posies with the returning color Poppy Parade ink and pop them up with some stamping dimensionals. Oh, and I used the Layering Circles to accent the sentiment.
The leaves could have been colored in any of our great greens but I chose to keep in simple with just the three colors. I love the Poppy Parade color- such a lovely bright red so different from Real Red which is one of my faves. Red is an important color to have on hand and having two beautiful Stampin’ Up reds is super!
I just used a marker to dot in the middle of the flowers to mimic the front.
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

I am in a swap with a few gals each month, and we decided to play
with the SU Nailed It bundle this time around.
I love a fun fold card so I made this simple one that is easy to mail:
I absolutely love the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder…super cool!
I embossed a piece of Silver Foil which is quite elegant but if you are doing a large number of them, you can use Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil like I did on this card.
I thought the “Nailed it” sentiment fit into a congratulations theme so I used a sentiment
from SU Scenic Sayings on the front of the card. Of course, the Stitched Shapes Framelits always
add a special touch to a card, don’t you think?
I also added the word “YOU” from the SU Jar of Love to finish off the sentiment.
My daughter is in wedding mode for October 2017…save the dates, invitations, bridesmaids invites, and even groomsman invites. While preparing for her brother’s wedding a couple months ago where she was the Maid of Honor, her fiance mentioned how HE wanted to make invites for his groomsmen like she did with her “champagne cheers” invites for her bridesmaids.
So she surprised him with these tuxedo cards with some help
from Australian SU demonstrator Diane Barnes:
It was so fun to have her in my stamping room figuring everything out as she made them especially the cute bow ties made with the SU Bow Builder Punch. I love how she made the cumberbund or cummerbund (the second being the correct spelling and the first being a variant we Americans seem to use) check out WordLady’s take on it HERE.
I think she is a natural crafter who just won’t admit it!!!
BTW, she had to make 11 of these…no, that is not a typo- 11 attendants on each side…
