SU Picnic with You

March 9, 2018

I played around with the SU Picnic with You Bundle yesterday.
I am pretty proud of myself since it was one of the first bundles I ordered from
the Occasions catalog, and it only took me 2-1/2 months to get ink on it!!!

I was inspired by two great card challenge sites:

The Paper Players #383

Freshly Made Sketches #327

I really liked the sketch!

SU Hold on to Hope Fun Fold Video Tutorial

March 5, 2018

Can you tell I LOVE the SU Hold on to Hope Bundle?

Here is another fun fold card using the bundle with a video showing you how to make it!



I used the Happy Easter sentiment from the SU Sweet Little Something stamp set-
the one with the photorealistic stuffed bunny:)


I think if you didn’t use the Happy Easter sentiment, you could add in
“Celebrating One of God’s Most Remarkable Creations…You”
and it could be a wonderful Confirmation or Baptism card,  what do you think?

SU Truly Tailored Gift Card Holder

March 2, 2018

I was challenged to make a card using supplies given to me by my upline last month for an online event. If I recall correctly, I was given card bases of Night of Navy and Very Vanilla cardstock, a panel of Tranquil Tide Cardstock, various 3″ x 4″ pieces of True Gentleman Designer Series Paper, some Linen Thread and a button. We were to use stamped images from our SU Truly Tailored stamp set on our card.

I have to admit….I did not do it in the time frame,
and did not use the Linen Thread and button but…
I did get it done!!!

I made a gift card holder as my project.
I just folded back the front of the card (in half at 2-3/4″) and trimmed off the end 1″ of the flap
before I adhered it just on the top and bottom so the gift card could slip in.

Super easy to do and used the DSP in a nice coordinated way…what do you think?
I really love the colors in this DSP especially the bold ones I chose on this card.

Taking a second look at a card…SU Hold on to Hope

February 28, 2018

This is a NEW post…read on…

So, I made this card, I liked it, and I posted it…remember?

And then…I kept looking at it and wondered what was off…do you ever do that?

Aha! I mistakenly thought the ribbon was black with silver in it
(late night stamping can do that)
…well, the Sale-a-bration Shimmer Ribbon is gray! So I revamped my card…

Isn’t it a totally different look?
I still like the black on the card, but prefer the Basic Gray card base!
What do you think?
