Oh my, I fell in love with the SU A Little Wild Bundle when I first saw it. It is such an adorable stamp set! Take a look at this video by Donna at the SU Home Office:
Here is a card I made with the Bundle:
*My DSP is 1-3/4″ x 5″ and the Pear Pizzazz border is 2″ x 5-1/4.”
Please note that this card was inspired by two talented demonstrators, Michelle Last and Sandy Mott. I got Michelle’s swap on my Thailand trip. Michelle’s watercoloring was awesome. Me, being not so adept at watercoloring, opted to simply use my super new alcohol markers, Stampin’ Blends! When I got a card from my friend Sandy, I also loved her color scheme and choice of DSP:) So, I mashed them up!
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.
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…
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!
LOCAL STAMPERS…the Thoughtful Branches Bundle ends on August 31…I am still accepting spots for classes on Wednesday evening, Sept.14 and Thursday afternoon and evening, Sept. 15. Let me know if you want to come so I can order you the bundle!
