SU Love You to Pieces

December 3, 2018

It’s December… but not too early to think about Valentine’s Day!

But really…the pink and red scream valentine but I actually made this as a thank you
for my girlfriend for picking me up at the airport! I just left it blank on the inside.
Here is a great sentiment to let someone know you are thinking of them…

Just a clean and simple card that is so cute and easily mailable:)
And….duplicatable for Valentine’s Day. You could mindlessly die cut a ton of blank white puzzle pieces and pop them into a template in your stamparatus, and stamp them really quickly. I did that with my Octopus in this video- check it out HERE – shows how to do it!

OH! I will do a quick video on how I am envisioning this but no time this morning…
heading out to hang with the my stampin’ gang at class!!!

SU A Big Thank You Foldover DSP Video Tutorial

November 28, 2018

Don’t forget that the Online Extravaganza is up and running!

A lot of Goodies on the list!!! Check out the last day of the sale  HERE

 

Now for some eye candy….

I had fun making this cute Foldover Designer Series Paper card.

A little history on the designing of this…I was playing around with folding my cardstock back on the front as I have done before for something different and adding a strip of DSP to the inside but then thought I wanted to showcase this absolutely gorgeous DSP more.

You know how it is with DSP, you either hoard it and use little strips here and there or just go all out and use a *ouch* huge piece!  So, I decided cut my 12″ x 12″ piece into (3) 4″ by 10-1/2″ pieces and do a fun fold of DSP on the front. But needed to give it some support so I mounted it on a 1/4 sheet of cardstock and made a place for the inside greeting! See how much of the DSP you can show off? It is a great use of the DSP- three cards from sheet!

Tip: cut the 1-1/2″ piece off first from the 12″ x 12″ to make it 10-1/2″.
That way, you have a 1-1/2″ x 12″ piece to use later on either a landscape of a portrait card:)

How about a video to show you how I did it?

 

The Petal Promenade DSP is just perfect for this fun fold! Here is one with Highland Heather and Petal Pink with the darker floral.

The Share What You Love Artisan Pearls work lovely with the colors in DSP pack, too!

 

Time to play with that DSP you have…if you make one…send me a pic or email…I love happy mail!

SU Healing Hugs

November 26, 2018

Pssst…

Don’t forget that the Online Extravaganza is up and running!

I made a sweet Get Well card using the SU Healing Hugs stamp set.

Here is a close up of the gold metallic thread and sequins.

I even got fancy and did the inside!

To get the leaves to be behind the flower I used a masking technique.
Here are a few pics of the steps.

First, you stamp a flower on a sticky note and then fussy cut it out.

Next you stamp the flower on the panel.

Next, place the mask over the stamped flower and stamp the leaves and another flower.

Use the mask again on the other flower so you can stamp leaves that appear to be under the flower again.
To be honest, since my mask was not absolutely perfect when I stamped the second flower- see the vanilla space between the flowers above?
I just figured out a way to cover it. And that boo-boo became a great element of the card, don’t you think?

I used the Lakeside Framelits to die cut the sentiment.
I wanted it shorter so I just cut it and then laid it closer to the right end and die cut it again:) I also used the Petals and More Thinlits to make the lattice detailed die cut under the sentiment.

SU Botanical Bliss Bundle

November 5, 2018

Oh, how I love Blackberry Bliss although I did call it Blackberry Mess last week at class
since it seems to travel all over the place when we are using it…LOL.

I used the die with the lovely floral design.

I simply used the one die above to cut out the flower and
then another die below to cut out the bottom around the leaves to get a free standing flower.

I also die cut Mossy Meadow leaves and adhered them to the Blackberry Bliss leaves to give the contrast.

The Layered Leaves embossed panel sets the stage for the card. To jazz up the focal image,
I embossed the sentiment in gold, added  a vellum stitched oval, a scalloped gold foil border, and scattered some gold sequins.
The Wood Textures DSP with the Gold Metallic Edged Ribbon gives the card a shabby chic feel,
don’t you think?

Simple stamped images finish off the inside of the card:)

SU Beautiful Blizzard

October 4, 2018

I hear some people have spotted snow flurries already, can you believe that?
Well, today, all of you are going to see snowflakes…

 

I used the Beautiful Blizzard Bundle to make this Clean and Simple card that is a “winter” card.
It can be sent as soon as the flurries fly!
It would make a great birthday card or encouragement card, don’t you think?

I designed this card with a larger border around the stamped panel.
The card base front is 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″, the Bermuda Bay is 4″ x 5-1/4″,
then I skipped the next layer (that would be 3-3/4″ x 5″)
and  finished it off with the white stamped panel of 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″.

 

The 4″ x 5″ die is super cool- pun intended. You get a blizzard of snowflakes with a one run through the Big Shot.
