SU Masculine Card

Stampin’ Up Best Catch with High Tide

February 25, 2019

Time for a masculine card, don’t you think?
So, I pulled out my Stampin’ Up Best Catch Bundle.

I used the water, sand, and sea grass images from the High Tide stamp set to create a scene for the fly fisherman. I used my Stampin’ Blends to color the basket, fisherman, and the fish.

It’s hard to distinguish the card base color in the photo but it is Blackberry Bliss.
It looks great with the Soft Suede Basket Weave embossed panel.

I used the Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set to finish off the inside along with the fishing lure.

SU First Frost Bundle Peek Thru the Middle Video Tutorial

October 31, 2018

Wednesday is the new day I plan to post my videos-
the middle of the week works well with my crazy life
and hopefully it will be a mid-week surprise for you!

To start off the fun, I have a video tutorial for you to make a portrait style
Peek thru the Middle card using the beautiful Frosted Floral Suite and the Treat Time Stamp Set.

I used the Treat Time Stamp Set to do the sentiment. It’s a great set with so many greetings!
The little dots of Pineapple Punch come from the Hearts Come Home Stamp Set.

Here is one I did with another sentiment from Treat Time.

Measurements:
Card Base: Tranquil Tide 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on the 11″ side, slide to the left so the score line is at 1-3/4″and cut. Now, cut the piece that falls off to 2-1/4″ x  4-1/4″  for the bottom of the card.
Focal stamped rectangle: Tranquil Tide Border 2-1/4″ x 4-1/4″,
Whisper White stamped panel: 2″ x 4″
DSP on top: 1-1/2″ x 4″, DSP on bottom 2″ x 4″
Whisper White for flowers/thistle: 2″ x 4″
Vellum: 2″ x 3″

SU Truly Tailored and a Bow Tip

July 30, 2018

Look what I found yesterday as I was searching around my blog…an UNPULISHED VIDEO!
Oh gosh, I forgot to post it before the Truly Tailored Bundle was retired…
but I know  a lot of you have it so I am posting it now:)

Remember a design element on a card can be used with any stamp set, paper, or embellishment you have on hand!
At the end of the video,  I show you a great little tip to make a neat and tidy bow that I know you will love!

These were the leftover triangles from my Criss Cross Card.

You can see that post with the video HERE.

Measurements:
An A2 size card using a cardstock base of 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ on the 8-1/2″ side
Mount the two triangles (made from cutting a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of DSP in half diagonally) on a piece of 4″ x 5-1/4″ cardstock.
Adhere the diagonal bands down the middle BEFORE adhering the triangle panel to the card base so you can trim off the strips at the corners.

SU Better With You

June 22, 2018

How many of you took notice of the BEAUTIFUL bird on page 169 of the Annual Catalog?
Isn’t it just so calming and peaceful? Perfect image for so many occasions and
for The Paper Papers Challenge # 398– Birds!

I could not wait to get it and try the watercoloring technique that SU explains on that page. I did watercolor it but I am still working on it. Want to see some gorgeous watercoloring painting? Check out my friend, Jodi McKinney’s blog at theLifeInBetween.me.  She is a lovely person to follow:)

I will have to channel my inner Jodi and finish it up! Instead of watercoloring, I pulled out my favorite tools- my stampin’ blends! I am not a great shader etc. but I feel like an artist when I use my alcohol markers that perfectly match my SU cardstock, dsp, and inks. No having to buy tons of different shades of other brand markers to find a match with my SU stuff! So glad I never got into that- I would have bought so many markers!!! Instead, I just play with my stampin’ blends knowing that they fit my needs:)
