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…
I was playing around with the SU Totally Trees stamp set this weekend…LOVE IT!
So many fun things to do with a set with this many images…
I also had the SU Stitched Shapes Framelits on my desk so I introduced them to each other, and this is what came out of it:
I even invited two of the newer In Colors 2016-18- Flirty Flamingo and Peek-a-boo Peach to the party. I think they hit it off, don’t you think?
The sentiment is from SU Bunch of Blossoms stamp set. Don’t overlook this stamp set with its coordinating punch either! I really like the font used for the sentiments in this set and they fit in the Stitched Shapes Framelits, too…and the parts of the flowers kind of look like seashells and starfish to me. Gotta love the stems, too. I need to make you a card soon to show it off, huh?
Some fun stuff on the Weekly Deals at a 25% discount…WooHoo!

The samples below use the retired Petal Potpourri stamp set
but you could substitute the flower in the SU Crazy About You stamp set or just use the Flower Medallion punch with plain cardstock or vellum to make pretty flowers.
And here is a Valentine I did a few years back for the Paper Crafters Sampler

Look at those cute little bears…in real life, not so much!
When I saw the stamp set, I immediately pictured the bears in a forestwith pine trees. I was going to use the pines from the Holiday Fancy Foil Vellum I had left over but then came across the pine tree pattern on the current Merry Moments Designer Series Paper in the Annual Catalog. I created a fun little landscape with the DSP and Mossy Meadow and Old Olive hills. I added a little bit of a blue lake to keep with the sentiment – a lake full of fish. With the simple geometric design of the trees, I adorned the inside with some matching Mossy Meadow and Old Olive trees using the tree punch with some crumb cake stumps.
The Bear framelits are on the Weekly deals this week but then again, they are also bundled with the stamp set- both at a 15% discount in the Occasions catalog.
So many cute sentiments with this one!
I can see cards for Father’s Day, Thanks, Just Because or maybe Sympathy, Birthday, Congrats, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, and New Baby.
Take a look at this set…it is so stinkin’ cute!
I just watched the SU video featuring Bear Hugs, and Andrea shows a super cool way to show both sides of the bear arms to give a big hug… it is worth a watch, friends!
