Here is how you create a  Bridge Fold Card:

how nice to have that, huh? I inlaid the cross in the cut out I made with another die after stamping the foliage.

SU Barn Door with This Little Piggy

January 24, 2018

It will be Valentine’s Day before you know- one of the biggest card giving days! My mom is going to love this card…although she loves roosters the SU This Little Piggy stamp set is just too cute not to use with the SU Barn Door stamp set! Maybe I will use the rooster from SU Wood Words on her Barn Door birthday card…

I love the sliding mechanism made with the Sliding Door Framelits-
so easy to do! You put one message on the left side…

and slide it over to reveal another message on the right side.
I rounded the corners on the 2-1/2″ x 4″ Whisper White cardstock where I stamped the piggy.
I used Pool Party ink on the bow on the wreath because it was a bit darker than Soft Sky ink.

I am sharing it with The Paper Players Challenge # 337 – the theme of Love Notes:)

Here is a video from the SU Home Office where Brandi shows how
super easy it is to make a card with the Barn Door Bundle:

SU Hold on to Hope

January 21, 2018

I saw the sketch challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper # 133, and I decided to join in today.

I have had the SU Hold on to Hope Bundle on my desk wanting to use it to have some encouragement cards on hand. It seems there have been many times lately that friends of mine have needed an uplifting card.

It’s monochromatic color palette with only Garden Green as a color has a soothing effect. I am sharing it with the Just One Color Stampin’ Up Only Challenges # 92.

SU Beautiful Bouquet with Everyday Jar Framelits

August 26, 2017

I played around with some watercoloring with the Beautiful Bouquet Bundle after seeing so many pretty cards done with this technique- the first one I saw was Sandi MacIver’s creation that inspired me. The bouquet is so gorgeous it can just stand alone on a card but I placed mine in an embossed vellum jar:)

I used my Ruffled Embossing Folder for the backround- so elegant, so vintage…don’t you think?

A bit of gold really dresses up the card, too!

Notice the only stamping on the card is the sentiment! However, there are a TON of flowers and greenery in the set- it is so packed with versatile stamps that mix and match with so many other sets. Take a look on Pinterest under “Stampin’ Up Beautiful Bouquet.” The flowers were die cut from watercolor paper and then moistened with Flirty Flamingo ink using an aquapainter so the Berry Burst ink would run a bit when added last with the aquapainter again. Every one turns out differently so play around and don’t be too picky!
