New Clearance Rack Items! …and SU In the City with Bike Ride

August 15, 2017

Have you checked out the Clearance Rack, kids? New items have been added! 

You can view the Clearance Rack HERE

My swap group chose the SU Bike Ride Bundle to play with

so this is what I came up with:

I paired the bike with one of the Annual Catalog Hostess Sets called “In the City.”

What a neat set!

Notice all the cute sentiments-

Wedding, Birthday, Baby, Welcome, Thanks….

In the City offers two-step stamping with 60 stamps that can help you build a tiny home,
all the way up to an entire city if you want!

Imagine how colorful you can make it with the two-step component.

 

I jazzed up my bike with some silver elements- foil for the basket and handle streamers and some rhinestones on the wheels. The new Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals came in handy attaching the bike in the narrower spaces:)

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 Lovely Inside and Out Bundle

May 30, 2017

I am sure you have seen the beautiful Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper all over Pinterest…well, it is just lovely! I used it on this gate fold card with the new Lovely Inside and Out stamp set and Lovely Words Thinlits.

 The dies in the set cut out the words like you see on the inside of the card. On the front of the card, I used the largest Stitched Shapes Oval to die cut around the word. You can also snip the sides of the words and have them free standing. I adhered the hugs die cut to a piece of paper from the  Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack.  I also used some new Old Olive Mini Chevron ribbon to close the card. Although Wisteria Wonder and Peekaboo Peach are not listed on the DSP colors- the watercolor palette shows variations of Calypso Coral and Night of Navy that I thought went well with the paper:)

Oh, and the cute little posie on the front is from the new Seasonal Layers Thinlits.

 The new catalog goes LIVE June 1st at noon Mountain Time. WooHoo!

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

Casing the New Catalog- SU Colorful Seasons

May 23, 2017

Doesn’t this card just scream summer! Up north, it is on its way- down in Florida, it is HOT!

I was inspired by the card on page 146 of the NEW catalog using the SU Colorful Seasons Stamp Set.

I used the new Color Theory Designer Series Paper (the ombre pattern) as the background.

My friend Linda taught me not to leave an image hanging so I grounded the chair on some sand created with an image from the SU Sheltering Tree stamp set. My sun came from the SU Wherever You Go stamp set- I love how it spans across the top of the panel:) A few scattered gold Metallic Enamel Shapes finished off the card.

Let me tell you, this is just a simple card made from this awesome stamp set…

so many images and framelits are included in the bundle.

It will be fun to use all year round for so many occasions!

SU Dragonfly Dreams Bundle Inlay Technique

March 13, 2017

We made this card at our Dragonfly Dreams Product Class this month.

It uses an inlay technique.

  • First, I stamped the three blue swoshes from the Work of Art stamp set in Soft Sky, Marina Mist, and Dapper Denim ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock.
  • I then die cut the string of dragonflies out of that stamped panel and set it aside.
  • I then die cut two more strings of dragonflies from two more pieces of Thick Whisper White cardstock.
  • I adhered the stamped panel with the “hole” left from the dragonflies to a same sized piece of Whisper White cardstock to close up the “hole.”
  • Next, I inlaid one of the whites strings of dragonflies into the “hole” using dabs of Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.
  • I layered another white string of dragonflies onto the first white inlaid string.
  • Then I finished off the technique by adhering the die cut blue dragonflies on top of the two white strings of white dragonflies.

 It has a neat layered effect on the card. I hope you can see it here:

It is hard to see but I added Clear Wink of Stella to the swooshes and a few scattered rhinestones.
A few stamps of the dots on the top and bottom finish off the inside of the card:)
