SU Farmhouse Christmas

October 13, 2018

I got an awesome card from one of my favorite friends and stampers, Janet Munden.
I was so wowed by her card that I totally cased it!

I was so impressed with Janet’s layout- isn’t that burlap ribbon just so cool?
I thought the Farmhouse Designer Series Paper was a perfect addition, too!

Take a look at the fantastic Farmhouse Christmas Bundle:

That picket fence is so darn cute…I gotta make a card with it to show you…
if I don’t soon, remind me…lol.

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

SU Apron of Love For Husband

April 20, 2018

I am so excited to show you this card today using
the SU Apron of Love and Bottles and Bubbles Bundles.
It just makes me happy! I used the sentiments from SU Guy Greetings.

 

I saw this card done by Handmade by Irene with a grill so I got pinspired to make my own!

I tried e-ver-y-thing possible to make that bottom part of the grill that keeps the tripod together. Everything looked goofy- the small oval punch, small circles, small ovals…it was just driving me crazy! In the end, the right piece was right in front of my nose! I just die cut the rolling pin, cut it, and pushed it together!

I used the 1-1/2″ circle punch to make the upper part of the grill.
I just keep thinking it looks like Pac Man…lol.

I did the inside two different ways…

The grass die comes from the Picnic Basket Builder Framelits,
it’s a great way to finish of the inside of the card, don’t you think?

 If you add bring some brews to the BBQ…

it fits into the  “food and drink” theme for Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge # 146

April 24, 2018– Thank you for choosing my card as a winner at Stamp Ink Paper!

SU Truly Tailored Gift Card Holder

March 2, 2018

I was challenged to make a card using supplies given to me by my upline last month for an online event. If I recall correctly, I was given card bases of Night of Navy and Very Vanilla cardstock, a panel of Tranquil Tide Cardstock, various 3″ x 4″ pieces of True Gentleman Designer Series Paper, some Linen Thread and a button. We were to use stamped images from our SU Truly Tailored stamp set on our card.

I have to admit….I did not do it in the time frame,
and did not use the Linen Thread and button but…
I did get it done!!!

I made a gift card holder as my project.
I just folded back the front of the card (in half at 2-3/4″) and trimmed off the end 1″ of the flap
before I adhered it just on the top and bottom so the gift card could slip in.


Super easy to do and used the DSP in a nice coordinated way…what do you think?
I really love the colors in this DSP especially the bold ones I chose on this card.

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

SU In the Wild with May Paper Pumpkin

Happy Friday, friends. You should definitely play along this week with us at the Friday Mashup #164.

Lynda asked us to:

1. Create a project for “Father’s Day or that special guy in your life.”
2. Create a project with “Stamping on anything other than Card Stock.”
or
3. Mash it Up! and create a “Father’s Day project with Stamping on anything but Card Stock.”

I am sorry I did not mash it up this week but I did get the Father’s Day card done and ready for my dad! (By the way, my mom did get her Mother’s Day card after all- she just forgot she put it away to save it!- Silly girl)

SU In the Wild with Work of Art

I used the SU In the Wild stamp set- I had my eye on it for quite some time and finally got it. It is a lovely sketchy lined stamp but needs something to go with it. I saw a few people watercoloring around it and thought the new SU Work of Art stamp set could do the job for me! So I inked it up with Wild Wasabi, then Crumb Cake, and finally Soft Sky to mimic the ground, the animal, and the sky. Then I stamped the moose in Chocolate Chip ink.

I finished it off with some matching banners  stamped from the SAB 2014 Banner Blast set. I am so happy there are two other sets set called Banner Banter  and Itty Bitty Baby in the new catalog that coordinate with the cute little banner punch. I also embellished the banners with some random metal brads.

The photopolymer sentiment came from the May Paper Pumpkin- another stamp that came with it has Happy Birthday on it. We made this card in class and both sentiments were used by my gals.

I really hope you find time to play along with the Friday Mashup this week! Make sure to check out what the Design Team has created for inspiration.
