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!

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:)

SU So Detailed Thinlits with Falling in Love and So in Love

March 6, 2017

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.

I decided to share these with Sandy’s Cut It Out theme Challenge #334 at the Paper Players.

SU High Tide

January 23, 2017

The new SU High Tide stamp set will make you feel like an artist when you are finished making a card. It is so EASY to create a scene with the sand, grass, lighthouse, birds, and water! The shadow on the lighthouse really finishes the scene…

su-high-tide-fms

In retrospect, I used Basic Gray for the shadow which I think was a good idea but I carried it through on the birds on the land and in the sky but next time, I think I may use black for both of the birds. What do you think?

A little insight into this card…

As we were watching our Steelers go down the drain last night, my mind wandered off to the Freshly Made Sketch Challenge # 271.  So I inconspicuously excused myself to make this card.

fms-final-271-001

I was thinking of how the light could be captured inside the design element in the sketch. Then my search for a sentiment…YOU LIGHT UP MY LIFE…came from the Jar of Love stamp set. There is also one in the Annual catalog’s Hostess Set No Pun Intended.

Look at the neat images you can use to paint your landscape…
