SU Big News Wedding Card

SU Big News Wedding Close UP

Hello, friends! I have a fun fold card for you today that uses the colors LeAnne picked for

The Paper Players #244 this week.

I used the bold font image from SU Big News as the focal point on my fun fold card.

I embellished my card with some Sahara Sand 7/8″Lace Trim that is in new catalog and Lost Lagoon Stitched Satin Ribbon and the oh so pretty Something Borrowed DSP that are both retiring- available while supplies last. The Itty Bitty Accents flowers added a little fun, too.

To make the fold, you simply score your 4 1/4″ x 11″ card base at 5 1/2″ and 9″ and fold the flap over. Here are a couple of views:

With this flap measurement, you have plenty of room to jot a message  on the inside of the card while at the same time having a beautiful inside sentiment as a focal point as well.

As I was taking the first photo, I temporarily adhered the front flap down and thought, “Hmmm, you could just fold it back and permanently adhere it.” Another neat design element to remember!

So happy that the Big News stamp set is sticking around! It is a great All-Occasion set.

SU Big News – Birthday

April 25, 2015

This is one of the stamp images from the SU Big News set…

and this is how I stamped it to fit into the Freshly Made Sketches # 183 Challenge.



There was ample space in between the words to easily mask off the letters and use my Stamp-a-ma-jig to position the words vertically using the playful colors at ColourMe # 68.


I punched out some fun stars from the SU Pictogram Punches to add a little depth to the card. A simple adorning of a Melon Mambo button and Lost Lagoon Satin Stitched Ribbon finished it off. I could not resist adding the hyphen- grammar obsessed, I am.

Never used a Stamp-a-ma-jig?

SU Something for Baby

January 23, 2015

Tara has asked us to create a baby card with sweet colors

at the Friday Mashup #194 this week.


 This week’s Mashup Challenge is:

Create a project with a “Baby Theme.

Create a project  with “Brown, Aqua & Tangerine.”

or Mash it Up! and create a “Baby project with the above colors.”

SU Something for Baby FM

 I knew I wanted to use the SU Something for Baby stamp set with its adorable matching framelits. The colors from last year’s retired RetroFresh DSP fit the challenge perfectly. I was looking around for a baby sentiment and came across this AWESOME one in the SU Big News stamp set. I had overlooked it- it is so cute!!! The large sentiment  fit so well with the layout I was playing around with on the card front. Since the Paper Players #228 is all about the sentiment so I am sharing it over there.


  I added a few Soft Suede candy dots, and I was happy:)
