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 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 Floral Frames Bundle

July 5, 2018

I just love black and white as a design element and adding in a pop of any color just makes me happy! Adding in red is even better!
I was playing around with my SU Floral Frames Bundle and came up with this:

Simply stamp the foliage image and run it through the Big Shot with the NEW Tufted Embossing Folder. Stamp some posies with the returning color Poppy Parade ink and pop them up with some stamping dimensionals. Oh, and I used the Layering Circles to accent the sentiment.

The leaves could have been colored in any of our great greens but I chose to keep in simple with just the three colors. I love the Poppy Parade color- such a lovely bright red so different from Real Red which is one of my faves. Red is an important color to have on hand and having two beautiful Stampin’ Up reds is super!

I just used a marker to dot in the middle of the flowers to mimic the front.
