SU A Little Wild Mash-Up

November 6, 2017

Oh my, I fell in love with the SU A Little Wild Bundle when I first saw it. It is such an adorable stamp set! Take a look at this video by Donna at the SU Home Office:

Here is a card I made with the Bundle:

 

*My DSP is 1-3/4″ x 5″ and the Pear Pizzazz border is 2″ x 5-1/4.”

 

Please note that this card was inspired by two talented demonstrators, Michelle Last and Sandy Mott. I got Michelle’s swap on my Thailand trip. Michelle’s watercoloring was awesome. Me, being not so adept at watercoloring, opted to simply use my super new alcohol markers, Stampin’ Blends! When I got a card from my friend Sandy, I also loved her color scheme and choice of DSP:) So, I mashed them up!

I was playing around with the SU Totally Trees stamp set this weekend…LOVE IT!

So many fun things to do with a set with this many images…

I also had the SU Stitched Shapes Framelits on my desk so I introduced them to each other, and this is what came out of it:

I even invited two of the newer In Colors 2016-18- Flirty Flamingo and Peek-a-boo Peach to the party. I think they hit it off, don’t you think?

The sentiment is from SU Bunch of Blossoms stamp set. Don’t overlook this stamp set with its coordinating punch either! I really like the font used for the sentiments in this set and they fit in the Stitched Shapes Framelits, too…and the parts of the flowers kind of look like seashells and starfish to me.  Gotta love the stems, too. I need to make you a card soon to show it off, huh?

SU Foxy Friends with the Fox Builder Punch

August 6, 2016

I am playing along with the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #248 created by one of my favorite designers, Linda Callahan.

FMS Final 248-001

I put the fox in for the shape and the DSP for the rectangle:)

I was inspired by a cute card by Sandra Mott where she cut the DSP into a row of foxes. If you attempt cutting the A Little Foxy DSP into rows of foxes remember they are not all the same size foxes. I am happy to say no foxes were harmed when I had to cut the DSP into 56 rows for my wonderful gals at classes this week!

This little fox is so cute! And that is not the only little critter you can make! Take a look at these cuties on Pinterest…https://www.pinterest.com/pin/108297566019480098/

Oh, I used the Duet Banner Punch and the Badges and Banners stamp set for the sentiment on both cards.

SU Something for Baby

April 26, 2016

A friend needed a baby card so I made up a quick one…no one knows if it is a boy or girl so yellow was a good choice! I was not sure if the scallops were too girly so I gave her a choice of plain arm and leg openings:) I think the Expressions Natural Elements (Congrats) were a great embellishment in this year’s annual catalog. Don’t forget to pick some up if you missed them as they are retiring!

I used some paper from the Cherry of Top DSP Pack- doesn’t it look like water?

SU Something for Baby Yellow Onesie

This fun onesie was so easy to make!

You just fold a 4 1/4″ x 11″ portrait card in half and punch half of a 1 3/8″ circle on the fold to create a head opening. Here is a sample, however the photo is out of order!

You do the same for the leg holes but place the punch at each bottom corner like this:

IMG_5347IMG_5348

To make the body, place a ruler horizontally across the card 1 1/4″ from the top fold (below the head hole) and draw a line lightly with a pencil in 1″ on both sides. From the middle points of each line, draw a line down to the top of each leg hole. Cut along the lines to make it  the shape of a onesie.

To make the trim on the collar and leg holes, punch out a 1 3/8″ circle then punch around the hole you created in the paper with a 1 3/4″  scallop or circle punch.

Place the trim around the head and leg openings and trim off the excess.

SU Playful Pals and #3 Craft Project Central April 2016

April 7, 2016

My mother-in-law asked if I “might” have an elephant baby shower card…

Well, let me see what I can come up with I told her…

I saw more than a few cards on Pinterest showing this cutie-pa-tootie elephant peeking through leaves. I played around with the SU Playful Pals stamp set and its coordinating Pyramid Pals framelits, the Botanical Builders framelits with the Botanical Blooms stamps, and added some Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper and made this lickety-split.

SU Playful Pals with Botanical Blooms Elephant

 I just LOVE the sentiment from SU Suite Sayings. This stamp set is a GREAT one to cover a lot of needs in cardmaking. Just this week, I used three of the sentiments on a baby card, a wedding card, and a graduation card, not to mention an Easter card recently.

I see a Mother’s Day card in the making, too.

Take a look at all the messages:
