SU Dandelion Wishes Video Tutorial

July 9. 2018

Remembering picking those pretty dandelion bouquets as a kid…
and then being told they were just weeds? LOL.
Well, they must be special with all the ways they are displayed…
in photos, on clothing, home decor, and of course, on stamps!

I have a video for you showing how to make a tri-panel image as the focal point on a card.

Here is the finished card from the video:

Now here is the same card that has all the layers run through the Big Shot using
the Subtle Embossing Folder.

Quite a different effect that Subltle Embossing Folder makes, huh?

 

Measurements:
Soft Suede Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Focal panel border 3″ x 4-1/4″, 2-1/2″ square for sentiment
Very Vanilla outside and inside: 4″ x 5-1/4″, Tri-panel  2-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ cut into (3) 1-1/4″ pieces on the 3-3/4″ side, 2-1/2″ square for sentiment

SU Floral Frames Bundle

July 5, 2018

I just love black and white as a design element and adding in a pop of any color just makes me happy! Adding in red is even better!
I was playing around with my SU Floral Frames Bundle and came up with this:

Simply stamp the foliage image and run it through the Big Shot with the NEW Tufted Embossing Folder. Stamp some posies with the returning color Poppy Parade ink and pop them up with some stamping dimensionals. Oh, and I used the Layering Circles to accent the sentiment.

The leaves could have been colored in any of our great greens but I chose to keep in simple with just the three colors. I love the Poppy Parade color- such a lovely bright red so different from Real Red which is one of my faves. Red is an important color to have on hand and having two beautiful Stampin’ Up reds is super!

I just used a marker to dot in the middle of the flowers to mimic the front.

SU Accented Blooms with Itty Bitty Greetings

June 29, 2018

Happy Friday, friends!

Remember, this card I made using Accented Blooms and the Tailored Tag Punch?

I cased myself and changed up the color to the NEW Blueberry Bushel with it’s coordinating DSP and popped up a cardstock tag with a HB sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.
I really like the bold pop of color that the punched out tag creates on this card:)

Such an easy image to stamp with so many sentiments that can fit inside that tag space…
some day I am going to color all those flowers!!!!

Hope you all have a great weekend!

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:)
