SU Dear Doily Bundle

February 1, 2019

Here’s a bright one for you today! I used three of our 2018-2020 In Colors-
Blueberry Bushel, Pineapple Punch, and Call Me Clover.

I was inspired by a catalog sample and totally changed it up. You can really see how bright these colors are when they are all combined. The photopolymer stamped images stamp so crisp and clean and look so great with the die cut doilies.

When I design a card, I like to carry all the colors from the outside into the inside of the card.For example, since the card stock is green, I stamped yellow and blue so the eye sees all the colors again on the inside. Sometimes I neglect my inside, how about you? Do you always decorate the inside or forget?

SU Nine Lives Mirror Image Stamping Technique Video Tutorial

January 23, 2019

Notice how my cats are facing different directions? How did I do that?

 It’s Wednesday, it’s Video Day where I will show you how to do Mirror Image Stamping!

Back in the day, Mirror image stamping was done with  the Stamp-a-ma-jig and acetate
but now the Stamparatus and the Silicone Mat make the technique super easy!

You can try this technique with any image you want to face the opposite direction than the stamp would actually stamp. The Dog in the Happy Tails bundle is another great image to mirror image stamp. Can you think of any more  off hand? That’s your homework…

Measurements:
Basic Gray Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on the 11″ side and 4″ x 5-1/4″ for crate
Whisper White: (2) 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the outside embossed panel, 2″ square for sentiment, and the inside of card and a piece big enough for the cat
Smokey Slate: a piece big enough for the cat
Basic Black: 2″ square for the circle border around sentiment

SU By The Bay Sale-a-Bration Gift

January 21, 2018

Good Monday Mornin’, friends! I have a sweet notecard for you today.

I made this card using a FREE stamp set you can get as a gift during Sale-a Bration!

You can see ALL the fun offerings for Sale-a-Bration HERE.

Of course, you know by now that I am loving my Rectangle Stitched Framelits.
And, I think the majority of the cards I make has a Stitched Shapes Frame in one way or another.
The stitches give a wonderful finished, professional look, don’t you agree?

The serene scene in this stamp set lends itself to a thinking of you/sympathy/get well card.
I used the Well Said Bundle for my sentiments. I will be using that one a lot on my cards!

Take a look at the Well Said Bundle:

In case your brain is like mine and finds it hard to read the die cut words …they are:

happy, you, birthday, thanks,baby, sympathy, hooray, love, wishes, miss, friend, bride, groom, and welcome
with a bird, a butterfly, posies, and leaves thrown in for good measure!

SU Let It Ride Stepped Up

January 18, 2019

WAIT…you have not seen this one…

I am sure you all have made a card and then came up with a way to step it up days or maybe even weeks later? Well, this time it was a week later.
I used Early Espresso as my card base instead of white. I think it worked with the horse color.
I inlaid the Rectangle Stitched  frame with the horse image inside a rectangle I die cut out of the green/blue panel.
This was my first one.

I also wanted to add something to the inside of the card so I repeated the outside on the inside.

My original inside:

 I then inlaid the image inside another green/blue panel like the outside.

I am happy with both but really love the second one with the darker base and matching inside:)

See this post for the materials.
