SU Beautiful Day

February 21, 2018

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…

SU Petal Palette Silver

February 14, 2018

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?

SU Petal Palette Blue Bird

February 9, 2018

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…

SU Apron of Love

February 7, 2018

 Claire has a Valentine theme this week at The Paper Players # 379.

I think Valentine’s Day should be celebrated every day and in every way!
Let’s never miss an opportunity to share our love with a special thanks to a friend!

I made another checkered bottom on my card but this time with a white background! Just adhere five 3/4″ black squares to the bottom of the Whisper White 3-3/4″ x 5″ panel. I used a lot of the dies from the Apron Builder Framelits for this card- the apron, the neck strap, the waist ties, the oven mitt, the pockets, the baking utensils, the trim on the bottom of the apron, and even the hearts. What a super bundle! I think this card can be unisex, too.  Add in those BBQ tools- the classic red and black fits both guys and gals! Just stamp DAD on the apron, and you have a Valentine for him or a Father’s Day card!

Those sweet little hearts go with the SU Only Challenges #193 Hearts a Plenty
so I am sharing it over there, too:)
