Get Well

SU World of Dreams with Thoughts and Prayers

February 16, 2015

Happy Monday, Peeps!

Just a quick Monday card today using Freshly Made Sketches #173.

FMS Final 173-001

I was playing around with the SU World of Dreams stamp set over the weekend for another project and had this “leftover” so I put it to good use. When I need some inspiration when creating a card,  I use google images to jumpstart my creativity. Just google the stamp set name and a plethora of ideas come up! Another way to get my creative juices flowing is to follow a sketch like this one. It gives me a starting point that helps me along in the process of finishing a card. I really liked this CAS one. I literally made my card in record time which is good because the hubby is waiting to take me on a little trip…so excited!

SU Thoughts and Prayers with new IN COLORS 2014-16

It’s been a week since I posted a card! The family went on a cruise to celebrate the three graduations that happened in the last two weeks. Had to share this cheesy photo…

 I had planned to schedule some posts before I left but life got in the way! So, I took the cards with me planning to post while I was cruisin’ but the internet was way too sketchy to wait around for a post to upload, and it was exorbitantly expensive to boot. However, I see you all survived without me but know I was thinking of you all…lol.

We got back to Our Orlando home earlier than I expected  so I was able to get

Sara’s Friday Mashup #161 card finished and posted!

I knew I would only be in FLA for a few days so I only brought 6 stamp sets and the new IN COLORS paper and ink with me- in case of withdrawal, of course. I did not have any of my embossing folders or fancy tools with me so I went super CAS with this one using the new green Mossy Meadow and the new yellow Hello, Honey. I am always surprised how the new  colors seem to be similar to current colors but when they are put against them- they are quite different! I was so happy to see the SU Thoughts and Prayers made the cut for the new catalog coming out on June 2nd. I did use a random green button that matched quite nicely with the Mossy Meadow on this card:

INK: SU Mossy Meadow
PAPER: SU Naturals Ivory, SU Mossy Meadow, SU Hello, Honey
ACCESSORIES: random matching green button, SU Naturals Twine

FYI: The tree stamped panels are each 1 1/4″ by 3″ adhered to a Mossy Meadow rectangle with about a 1/16 to 1/8″ border around and in between the panels. I then adhered the image to a rectangle of Hello, Honey with a 1/4″ border all around it.
