SU Hold on to Hope Bridge Fold Card Video Tutorial

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 Birthday, a Graduation, a Christening, a Baptism, a Confirmation,
a Holy Communion, or even a Bridal Shower!

SU Hold on to Hope

January 21, 2018

I saw the sketch challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper # 133, and I decided to join in today.

I have had the SU Hold on to Hope Bundle on my desk wanting to use it to have some encouragement cards on hand. It seems there have been many times lately that friends of mine have needed an uplifting card.

It’s monochromatic color palette with only Garden Green as a color has a soothing effect. I am sharing it with the Just One Color Stampin’ Up Only Challenges # 92.

SU Sorry for Everything with Heart Happiness

January 8, 2018

Happy Monday, friends! What a wonderful weekend I had with all my stamping buddies at our Annual Sale-a-bration Kick Off Luncheon! I still have to pinch myself when I think of all the special friends I have made since I became a demonstrator. Thanks to all of you who came and braved the cold- inside and ouside- heeheehee.

This is one of the 6 cards we made at our Occasions Catalog Kick Off.
It incorporates a technique called an Eclipse Effect.

How did I make it?
Well, I have another video for you!!

Sorry for all the Ummm-s.
My former homeschool students would not be happy
after all the years I told them….too many ummmms!!!

I forgot to show you the inside…

SU Best Birds with Birds and Blooms Thinlits

August 22, 2016

Happy Monday, everyone! I wanted to get in on the fun at Pals Paper Arts #314 this round.

Here is the sketch that inspired my card:

SU Best Birds Gold Foil

Those birds are so sweet, aren’t they? Did you notice the tiny little hearts in the upper right corner? They came from the birdie’s tail:)

SU Best Birds Gold Foil Close up

So, I stamped the sentiment crooked on the pretty paper from the AWESOME Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack. Boy, was I bummed since the gold embossing turned out great:(

To fix my mistake, I just punched the sentiment out using my retired oval and scallop oval punches. I  then mounted it and liked it better after my mistake (frown turned upside down:)

Can you believe I did not even notice until this weekend that the Birds and Blooms framelit/thinlits not only framed the stamped images in the Best Birds stamp set but also had three birds that are just cut out! Yea! Take a look…and they come in a bundle with 10% off both of them!

SU Thoughtful Branches with Beautiful Branches Thinlits

August 18, 2016

I thought I would play around with Lisa’s Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge # 61  at Stamp Ink Paper.

SIP-Challenge-61-Tic-Tac-Toe-768x994

I chose BIRD-TREE-BLUE straight through the middle.

I used the Stampin’ Up Thoughtful Branches Bundle that is available through August 31 while supplies last. So glad I go it! It is really versatile- definitely a lot of things you can do with it.

SU Thoughtful Branches With Red Bird

Notice how the branches can be seen through the foliage? I used the tree framelit and attached it to the tree stump image that was cut with the coordinating framelit. The fun little cloud comes from the SU Sprinkles of Life stamp set and the Tree Builder Punch. I even tried another version of the card (below) with the apples in the stamp set. I just love the grass and ground images in the set that can be used with other stamp sets I have:)

SU Thoughtful Branches with appples

My color palette was Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede, Real Red, and Whisper White.

Remember, this bundle is available until August 31st. Take another look:
