SU A Dozen Thoughts

SU Something for Baby

 I was definitely in need of a baby stamp set so I got the new SU Something for Baby, and oh my- I can’t believe how cute it is with its coordinating framelits.

I thought the colors at Colour Q # 244 this week for perfect for a boy card so I created one with  Retrosketches # 117.

SU Summer Silhouettes with A Dozen Thoughts

I finally got to play cards with the MUSE gang this week. Marion has a fun card for inspiration for Challenge #54 . I am sure you can see how I was inspired by its design and colors.

My card looks simple (and it is) but I must have stamped that lattice from SU Summer Silhouettes six times! Each time I did something goofy like drop the acrylic block or touch it before it was dry. But in the end, my Stamp-a-ma-Jig pulled me through, and it all came together.

SU Petal Parade with a Dozen Thoughts for SALE-A-BRATION 2014!

A funny thing called life took me hostage for a few days…but I am back now! I got to hang out tonight with my old pals ( a.k.a my stamps) which made me super happy;) I searched around for some inspiration and found another awesome challenge site called Seize the Sketch created by the super talented Lesley Croghan.  Stampin’ Up has created a lovely DSP this year called Sweet Sorbet for its SALE-A-BRATION starting on January 28 and running through March 31st. I picked two of the designs to use with the SU Petal Parade- another fun SAB stamp set coming out soon. I paired it with the SU A Dozen Thoughts to finish of this softly subtle but at the same time bold card for
Seize the Sketch # 11.
