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?

February 16, 2018

Happy Friday, friends!

Starting today and running through March 31, 2018-
more items have been added to the Sale-a-bration Line-Up!
You can see them HERE.
You can get the Eclectic Expressions Stamp Set or
the Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper  FREE for a $50 purchase.


And for a $100 purchase, you can  get the Blossoming Basket Bundle:)

I also wanted to share  a “Celebration” card  with you using the Hold on to Hope stamp set.
I used the Sale-a-bration Shimmer Ribbon- the silvery shimmer on the black paired well with the
rhinestones in the middle of the flowers made from the Tree Builder Punch!

I call it a “celebration” card because you get to pick the celebration…
is it a birthday? a graduation? a baptism? a christening?
a confirmation? or may be even a bridal shower?

Don’t you just love those little corner images?
I can see those cuties adorning many a card in the future!

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

January 29, 2018

Hello, friends!
I have another fun fold video for you today using the
Hold on to Hope Bundle found in the Occasions Catalog.

Here is how you create a  Bridge Fold Card:

Notice the framelit that cut out the fancy cross below is an additional one that does not coordinate with any image-
how nice to have that, huh? I inlaid the cross in the cut out I made with another die after stamping the foliage.

Here is a simple way to finish off the back to write a message of encouragement or sympathy.

The Hold on to Hope Stamp Set is a versatile one that offers a variety of uses
because of these two sentiments-

You can use this stamp set for many occasions like

a Holy Communion, or even a Bridal Shower!

SU Come to Bethlehem

Silhouette is the cue word for CASology # 61  this week. I immediately knew I wanted to use a favorite stamp set of mine…SU Come to Bethlehem. I think this silhouette is best showcased  CAS so I simply sponged a blue oval on my white card base and then stamped the image adorned with a solitary rhinestone.
