SU Apron Of Love with a Basket Weave Pie!

March 16, 2018

Have you seen any of the cards made using the Basket Weave Embossing Folder for a pie top?
They are just so cute! I remember when I got mine, my first thought was a lattice pie top.
As it kept popping up in blogland, I decided to use the idea on this card.

I used the pretty Tutti Frutti and Wood Textues  6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper Stacks to create
a rustic background for my Lemon Lime Twist apron. The smallest Stitched Shapes circle and the
new 1-3/8″ scallop circle punch made my cute little pie. I used a scrap of retired Real Red ribbon.

The apple image is found in the SU Picnic with You Bundle.
Seemed appropriate, don’t you think?

Taking a second look at a card…SU Hold on to Hope

February 28, 2018

This is a NEW post…read on…

So, I made this card, I liked it, and I posted it…remember?

And then…I kept looking at it and wondered what was off…do you ever do that?

Aha! I mistakenly thought the ribbon was black with silver in it
(late night stamping can do that)
…well, the Sale-a-bration Shimmer Ribbon is gray! So I revamped my card…

Isn’t it a totally different look?
I still like the black on the card, but prefer the Basic Gray card base!
What do you think?

SU Hold on to Hope Emboss Resist

February 23, 2018

May I say that the NEW Sale-a-bration Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper is GORGEOUS!!!!
And it is fun to emboss resist, too!
Look how beautiful the silver and gold shine through after I sponged Memento Black ink over it!!
My friend, Linda Heller, brought this old technique of emboss resist using this paper to my attention last week:)

It is easy to see how I made this card…I just die cut the larger gold cross and adhered the thinner silver cross to it.
I added a Clear Faceted Gem to the middle of the silver cross and added a banner embossed in gold. Simple yet elegant!
