Notecard

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.

SU Beautiful Blizzard

October 4, 2018

I hear some people have spotted snow flurries already, can you believe that?
Well, today, all of you are going to see snowflakes…

 

I used the Beautiful Blizzard Bundle to make this Clean and Simple card that is a “winter” card.
It can be sent as soon as the flurries fly!
It would make a great birthday card or encouragement card, don’t you think?

I designed this card with a larger border around the stamped panel.
The card base front is 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″, the Bermuda Bay is 4″ x 5-1/4″,
then I skipped the next layer (that would be 3-3/4″ x 5″)
and  finished it off with the white stamped panel of 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″.

 

The 4″ x 5″ die is super cool- pun intended. You get a blizzard of snowflakes with a one run through the Big Shot.

SU Varied Vases with Swirly Frames

August 24, 2018

I love a bundle that includes a punch! What about you?
So, when the Varied Vases Bundle came out, I was so excited. It is so cute!
There are so many images in the stamp set but I opted to use DSP to punch out my vases on this one!

So…isn’t that border an interesting touch? It comes from the Swirly Frames Stamp Set.
Look how cute the 9 bordering images are…for reference, I used the larger rectangle on this card.

 

I could not decide if I liked the vases sititng a little bit on the the wood or flush with the wood?
Which one do you like better?

SU Country Road

August 6, 2018

Taking a break from flowers, and using an awesome, rustic stamp set called Country Home.
I was inspired by the catalog sample on page 163 of the Annual Catalog.
A great card for the guys!

Wondering how I made that rectangle frame?
I started with a 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock. I stamped it with the Hardwood Background Stamp.
Then, I used the rectangle die from the Barn Door Framelits to cut out the opening.

I stamped the bottom of the Very Vanilla panel with grass using Old Olive ink and then embossed the horse with Copper Embossing Powder.
Next, I ran the Very Vanilla panel through the Big Sot using the Subtle Embossing Folder. Notice how cool the copper looks?
I roughed up my edges with the retired SU Distressing Tool and sponged some Soft Seude ink on the edges.
I love how the sponged ink seeped in the subtle creases.

SU Dandelion Wishes Video Tutorial

July 9. 2018

Remembering picking those pretty dandelion bouquets as a kid…
and then being told they were just weeds? LOL.
Well, they must be special with all the ways they are displayed…
in photos, on clothing, home decor, and of course, on stamps!

I have a video for you showing how to make a tri-panel image as the focal point on a card.

Here is the finished card from the video:

Now here is the same card that has all the layers run through the Big Shot using
the Subtle Embossing Folder.

Quite a different effect that Subltle Embossing Folder makes, huh?

 

Measurements:
Soft Suede Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Focal panel border 3″ x 4-1/4″, 2-1/2″ square for sentiment
Very Vanilla outside and inside: 4″ x 5-1/4″, Tri-panel  2-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ cut into (3) 1-1/4″ pieces on the 3-3/4″ side, 2-1/2″ square for sentiment
