SU Hold on to Hope Fun Fold Video Tutorial

March 5, 2018

Can you tell I LOVE the SU Hold on to Hope Bundle?

Here is another fun fold card using the bundle with a video showing you how to make it!



I used the Happy Easter sentiment from the SU Sweet Little Something stamp set-
the one with the photorealistic stuffed bunny:)


I think if you didn’t use the Happy Easter sentiment, you could add in
“Celebrating One of God’s Most Remarkable Creations…You”
and it could be a wonderful Confirmation or Baptism card,  what do you think?

SU Hold on to Hope Emboss Resist

February 23, 2018

May I say that the NEW Sale-a-bration Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper is GORGEOUS!!!!
And it is fun to emboss resist, too!
Look how beautiful the silver and gold shine through after I sponged Memento Black ink over it!!
My friend, Linda Heller, brought this old technique of emboss resist using this paper to my attention last week:)

It is easy to see how I made this card…I just die cut the larger gold cross and adhered the thinner silver cross to it.
I added a Clear Faceted Gem to the middle of the silver cross and added a banner embossed in gold. Simple yet elegant!

SU Hold on to Hope Bridge Fold Card Video Tutorial

January 29, 2018

Hello, friends!
I have another fun fold video for you today using the
Hold on to Hope Bundle found in the Occasions Catalog.

Here is how you create a  Bridge Fold Card:

Notice the framelit that cut out the fancy cross below is an additional one that does not coordinate with any image-
how nice to have that, huh? I inlaid the cross in the cut out I made with another die after stamping the foliage.

Here is a simple way to finish off the back to write a message of encouragement or sympathy.

The Hold on to Hope Stamp Set is a versatile one that offers a variety of uses
because of these two sentiments-

You can use this stamp set for many occasions like
a Birthday, a Graduation, a Christening, a Baptism, a Confirmation,
a Holy Communion, or even a Bridal Shower!

SU Basket Bunch and Basket Builder Framelits

April 4, 2017

Here is another card using the same design as the other day
but this time… it’s an Easter Card with a chocolate Easter Bunny!

 I am sharing it with The Paper Players Challenge # 338

Looks like the placement my  polka dots embossed panel is off a little:(

However, my other identical sample card took a nose dive into
the Early Espresso Ink Pad at class, so this one has to do!

Last week, my stamping gals cut, cut, and cut…
and one of the nights, we even had an Easter Egg Hunt looking for one of the little dies…lol!

SU Easter Lamb


February 12, 2016

I pulled out the cute little SU Easter Lamb to create something.
It is a $10 wood mount stamp hiding on page 24 of the Stampin’ Up Occasions Catalog.
I didn’t mount it on the wood block though, I just attached the sticker to the stamp itself and used it as a clear mount- a little temporary adhesive and it sticks just fine to an acrylic block!

SU Easter Lamb White Pen

To jazz up this fine line image, I used my Signo white gel pen to color in some of the lamb’s wool- mostly the bigger circles. I colored in his little hooves and gave him a touch of Blushing Bride to his ears. I also colored over the blades of grass with some Pear Pizzazz marker. I was inspired by Amy’s design over at Freshly Made Sketches # 223:
