SU Totally Trees with Stitched Shapes Framelits

November 25, 2016

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 Seasonal Bells

November 3, 2016

My van is packed, and I am off to Atlanta for the Stampin’ Up Onstage event Friday through Sunday then on my way back to my sweet stamping group in Pittsburgh! I wanted to share the swaps I am taking to share with other demonstrators in Atlanta…I just fell in love with the SU Seasonal Bells stamp set as I played around with it…so easy to stamp and punch out!



I am also sharing these cards with LeAnne and the gang over at the Paper Players Challenge # 319. It’s a Tic-Tac Toe challenge- I am choosing Snowflakes (on my bells and one pattern on one of my cards), Patterned Paper, and Ribbon.


Silver, silver bells…


Gold bells, gold bells…


I used the snowflake patterned paper on the card below:

*Big difference in night photo and day photo with my amateur photography skills and high ceiling lights that cast shadows:(


Just a simple inside:


This stamp set with its coordinating punch is perfect for not only Christmas but also for a wedding card! It has a cute little Mr. and Mrs. that can be stamped inside the bell image- just how sweet is that?


I really love the This Christmas Designer Series Specialty Paper- 24 sheets in a pack with Vanilla and classic Christmas Real Red and Garden Green but also Black and Vanilla patterns-
be sure to check it out!

SU Bravo with New Bohemian DSP and Boho Chic Embossing Folder

May 29, 2015

You saw that fun Bohemian Designer Series Paper on my Paper Share Post– You can see it HERE.  I wanted to showcase its rich, vibrant colors with this Congratulations card- perfect for the graduation parties coming up really soon!


 I LOVE a paper with a ton of colors to play with- this one has Bermuda Bay, Blackberry Bliss, Island Indigo, Rich Razzleberry, and Delightful Dijon with Very Vanilla as its neutral base on some of the papers. The new Delightful Dijon color is making my sorrow of losing More Mustard a few years back a little less severe.

SU Bravo Bohemian

My first step in making this card was using the NEW Boho Chic embossing folder on the front of the card. I stamped the sentiment with the SU Bravo stamp set.  My Stampin’ Write markers worked perfectly to do a little sprinkling of dots to jazz up the sentiment a bit. Since it was a photopolymer, I actually cut the stamp apart so I could use multiple colors without having to mask any words! I cut it cleanly without trimming so it would pop right back together again when I want it whole!

I cut the banner with the new Triple Banner punch that can cut up to 2″- I will be using that a lot for sure! Various stars were cut out with framelits from the Star set- big one, the Scentsational Season (retired)- smallest one, and another medium sized one, I can’t place right now.

SU Bravo Bohemian Inside

I  also used the SU Bravo stamp set for the inside sentiment. You can just stamp the words or add  a simple pocket holder for a gift card or money.


 The  inside bottom was decorated with stamps from the New SU Bohemian Borders stamp set. I am very excited that Stampin’ Up designed and created a DSP, an embossing folder, and a stamp set that coordinate!

Getting excited…..We can order soon- JUNE 2!

SU Big News Wedding Card

SU Big News Wedding Close UP

Hello, friends! I have a fun fold card for you today that uses the colors LeAnne picked for

The Paper Players #244 this week.


SU Big News Wedding Matte Main photo

I used the bold font image from SU Big News as the focal point on my fun fold card.

I embellished my card with some Sahara Sand 7/8″Lace Trim that is in new catalog and Lost Lagoon Stitched Satin Ribbon and the oh so pretty Something Borrowed DSP that are both retiring- available while supplies last. The Itty Bitty Accents flowers added a little fun, too.

To make the fold, you simply score your 4 1/4″ x 11″ card base at 5 1/2″ and 9″ and fold the flap over. Here are a couple of views:

With this flap measurement, you have plenty of room to jot a message  on the inside of the card while at the same time having a beautiful inside sentiment as a focal point as well.

SU Big News Wedding Inside

As I was taking the first photo, I temporarily adhered the front flap down and thought, “Hmmm, you could just fold it back and permanently adhere it.” Another neat design element to remember!

So happy that the Big News stamp set is sticking around! It is a great All-Occasion set.
