SU Oh So Eclectic for Creating Pretty Cards Challenge #72

June 26, 2017

Hey there! I finally got around to playing with Monika’s sketch at

Creating Pretty Cards Challenge #72 at Craft Project Central.

I have to say it has a lot of elements but in the end, it all came together:)

 

I used the SU Oh So Eclectic Bundle to create the focal point and used up some scraps of Color Theory DSP.

I loved how the solid flower stamp goes beyond the lined image stamp of the flower –

no white outline when die cut. See what I mean? Nice touch, I think.

I only used a simple stamp and die on this card but there are some other REALLY cool things in the bundle!!!

Take a few minutes hear what Shannon West from the SU office has to say about the Oh So Eclectic Bundle:

SU So Detailed Thinlits with Falling in Love and So in Love

March 6, 2017

We made this pretties at class last week. Everyone was so taken, as I was, with the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper and the intricate die cut from the So Detailed Thinlits.

I love how you can place the die cut in so many different ways…on top, on bottom, and even on the side vertically as you have probably seen on Pinterest. Such a pretty die that was super easy to cut out. And, oh my, what about those beautiful Falling in Love Embellishments…swoon.

So many sentiments from the So In Love stamp set fit in the Stitched Shapes oval die as seen below, and you can put them inside as well since each is a “a day to celebrate.”

I love how Stampin’ Up has incorporated sentiment fonts from various stamp sets
into a suite like they did with this one from SU Suite Sentiments.

I decided to share these with Sandy’s Cut It Out theme Challenge #334 at the Paper Players.

SU Tuxedo Card using Bow Punch

December 4, 2016

My daughter is in wedding mode for October 2017…save the dates, invitations, bridesmaids invites, and even groomsman invites. While preparing for her brother’s wedding a couple months ago where she was the Maid of Honor, her fiance mentioned how HE wanted to make invites for his groomsmen like she did with her “champagne cheers” invites for her bridesmaids.
So she surprised him with these tuxedo cards with some help
from Australian SU demonstrator Diane Barnes:

It was so fun to have her in my stamping room figuring everything out as she made them especially the cute bow ties made with the SU Bow Builder Punch. I love how she made the cumberbund or cummerbund (the second being the correct spelling and the first being a variant we Americans seem to use) check out WordLady’s take on it HERE.

I think she is a natural crafter who just won’t admit it!!!

BTW, she had to make 11 of these…no, that is not a typo- 11 attendants on each side…

SU Thoughtful Branches

August 25, 2016

Have you seen this beauty floating through cyberspace? It was created by a German demonstrator,

Danny Hikade, using the Thoughtful Branches Bundle.

I was so taken by it that I made one myself! I used the actual branches from the Thinlits, stamped the leaves on the Very Vanilla cardstock before I ran it through the Big Shot with the Brickwall embossing folder, and tied on a twine bow. I used Crushed Curry, Chocolate Chip, and Garden Green (LOVE that color) as my palette.

To make that cute little middle, just stamp the leaf foliage image and die cut. Then punch out a 1 1/2″ circle out of the leaves and mount it on another solid circle the same size. Easy peasy!

SU Birthday Blooms

June 13, 2016

I played along with the Creating Pretty Cards Monthly Challenge #60 today. You should, too! Remember, for every 10 submissions, Craft Project Central gives away a free month of tutorials!

And I decided to really challenge myself and use only what was in the scrap box on my desk. See, I have this box I “file” things in that don’t get used…it could be a scrap of ribbon or an image I did not use on a card or sometimes a die cut or shape of paper I did not use. So, I dug into my box to see what I could find…

SU Birthday Blossoms for CPC

I am not kidding you…I did not stamp anything…I just put stuff together from my scrap box using the sketch. I did have to punch a 2″ circle of Blushing Bride cardstock for the small border on my For You flower. I even added some enamel dots that matched a piece of DSP in my box. They were on my desk because I was packaging them for an event so I technically could use them!
