You get a two-fer today with the SU Beautiful Day stamp set.
I stamped my butterfly on vellum and colored the back of the image with my Stampin’ Blends. I cut out a large rectangle from the Rich Razzleberry cardstock and framed the vellum. Then, I adhered the frame to Whisper White panel on the Daffodil Delight card base.
I colored the flower with my Stampin’ Blends as well and fussy cut it.
Then, I adhered it to a panel of the Powder Pink Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper.
I just love a big border on my cards, do you use this design element much?
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends!
In the spirit of LOVE today, I have a wedding/anniversary card to show you using the
SU Petal Palette Bundle.
The Pinewood Planks dry embossed panel is just enough texture to be noticed but lets
the silver embossed roses take center stage on this card.
Silver Heat Embossing pairs so well with Smoky Slate ink.
I usually use Smoky Slate ink to stamp sentiments with delicate fonts, so much easier than heat embossing:)
It’s difficult to see in the photo but I used the beautiful silver foil paper to die cut the scallop oval that borders the Stitched Shapes oval. Some scattered rhinestones finished off the card wonderfully, don’t you think?
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

I have another SU Charming Cafe Card for you today.
At first glance, you may think it is the same card I posted a few weeks ago but NO, it is not.
I liked my other card but wanted to use the some of the neat framliets in the bundle so…
I had to come up with a fun fold card to showcase it!
Now, you may be wondering how I did this…well, have no fear…a video is here…
*8-1/2″ x 11″ Powder Pink Cardstock scored at 4-1/4″ on 8-1/2″ side and 5-1/2″ on the 11″ side.
Cut out the upper left quarter.
*Fresh Florals DSP (side strips on front) 1″ x 4-1/4″ , Whisper White 1/4″ x 4-1/4″ strips to border the DSP
*Whisper White 4″ x 5-1/4″ for inside, 2″ x 3″ for bistro set, 4″ x 3-1/2″ for floral border
P.S. The Watercolor Wash Background Stamp is found
in the Annual Catalog not the Occasions Catalog:)

My chickadee has turned blue on this card…he’s kinda like a chameleon.
He turns any color I want him to…
I was earning to use some Night of Navy, and I thought Daffodil Delight would pop right of the dark background.
I just colored the beautiful images found in the Petal Palette stamp set with my Stampin’ Blends
and added in some cute little Perfect White Accents.
Don’t you just love that lacy element and the sentiment die cut that comes in the Petals and More Thinlits?
For my northern friends…
Think spring- flowers and birds- just like the Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #136 is this week…

Happy Friday, friends!
I took a little liberty with Cecile’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge # 322
and interpreted the sketch with an oval as the focal point on my card.
I also decided to share it with Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #135 “All You Need is Love.”
I used a soft yet bright at the same time color palette of
Marina Mist and Melon Mambo with Pear Pizzazz added in. Notice that this delicate feminine card has a blue chickadee, too! I colored the pearls in the middle of the flowers melon mambo using my Stampin’ Blends. I love how easy it is to color pearls and rhinestones with alcohol markers!
