Birthday Card

SU So Detailed Thinlits with Falling in Love and So in Love

March 6, 2017

We made this pretties at class last week. Everyone was so taken, as I was, with the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper and the intricate die cut from the So Detailed Thinlits.

I love how you can place the die cut in so many different ways…on top, on bottom, and even on the side vertically as you have probably seen on Pinterest. Such a pretty die that was super easy to cut out. And, oh my, what about those beautiful Falling in Love Embellishments…swoon.

So many sentiments from the So In Love stamp set fit in the Stitched Shapes oval die as seen below, and you can put them inside as well since each is a “a day to celebrate.”

I love how Stampin’ Up has incorporated sentiment fonts from various stamp sets
into a suite like they did with this one from SU Suite Sentiments.

I decided to share these with Sandy’s Cut It Out theme Challenge #334 at the Paper Players.

SU Birthday Blast with Star Blast Framelits

February 18, 2017

I have been wanting to play around with the Birthday Blast bundle for quite some time…
finally got to do it this week!
I just love the Star Blast framelit die- so fun! I even added a little Party Animal embellishment.

Here’s a look at the inside:

I popped the Star Blast framelit out of a striped pattern box made
with the Layering Squares Framelits and a piece of Party Animal Designer Series Paper on this card. The solid blue stars are the popped out pieces from the die cut.

SU Custom Tee with SAB Designer Tee

February 1, 2017

We all have someone in our life who just loves tie dye, huh?

It is such a cool technique, although a bit messy when we did it at my daughter’s birthday party 15 years ago…now, it’s super easy with the SU Custom Tee Bundle and the Tie Dye Photopolymer stamp set.

I used the Sale-a-bration stamp set called Designer Tee to make a birthday card.

I couldn’t resist the Gorgeous Grunge ink splats since I was tie dying:)

I needed something to complete the sentiment so I added a banner from the Banners for you Bundle! And to finish of the inside…a sentiment from the Number of Years stamp set:)

Look at all the images in this Custom Tee stamp set!!! It truly is “custom!”

SU High Tide

January 23, 2017

The new SU High Tide stamp set will make you feel like an artist when you are finished making a card. It is so EASY to create a scene with the sand, grass, lighthouse, birds, and water! The shadow on the lighthouse really finishes the scene…

su-high-tide-fms

In retrospect, I used Basic Gray for the shadow which I think was a good idea but I carried it through on the birds on the land and in the sky but next time, I think I may use black for both of the birds. What do you think?

A little insight into this card…

As we were watching our Steelers go down the drain last night, my mind wandered off to the Freshly Made Sketch Challenge # 271.  So I inconspicuously excused myself to make this card.

fms-final-271-001

I was thinking of how the light could be captured inside the design element in the sketch. Then my search for a sentiment…YOU LIGHT UP MY LIFE…came from the Jar of Love stamp set. There is also one in the Annual catalog’s Hostess Set No Pun Intended.

Look at the neat images you can use to paint your landscape…
