SU Birthday Card

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 Lift Me Up with Cupcakes and Carousels DSP

January 28, 2017

Have you checked out the Cupcakes and Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack in the new Occasions catalog?


It is so pretty !!!!!!!

This paper not only works beautifully with the Carousel Birthday stamp set but also with the Lift Me Up Stamp Set as you can see with this clean and simple card:


and a little fun on the inside, too!


Did you know the Up and Away Thinlits and the stamps from the Lift Me Up Bundle
also coordinate with the Birthday Carousel stamp set?

Look the smallest cloud with swirlies on it and the hot air balloon basket in the lower right corner of the Lift Me Up stamp set – they can be stamped and die cut to be cupcakes on the ferris wheel in the Birthday Carousel stamp set!

Lift Me Up Stamp Set:



Birthday Carousel Stamp Set:


You can also stamp the ferris wheel and cut out the baskets with the die
from the Up & Away Thinlits
so you can have two kinds of cupcake wrappers-
one from the Birthday Carousel Stamp Set and one from the Lift Me Up Stamp Set.

SU Beautiful You with Mediterranean Moments

January 15, 2017

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #81 has a Black and White with a Pop of Color theme!


I thought this card was perfect for this challenge:


But how did I do this you may be asking yourself?

First, I was inspired by a few different cards online that have masked the woman images
from the SU Beautiful You stamp set with other SU stamp sets especially one by Linda Geater.

Here are the steps I went through to make this card:

1. Stamp the woman image on scratch paper and cut it out.


2. Apply some temporary adhesive on the mask so it can be easily lifted later.
Place the mask on the 3-3/4″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.


3. Stamp the street scene image from the SU Mediterranean Moments stamp set over the mask.


It will look like this after you stamp the scene.


4. Carefully lift the mask to leave a white space.


5. Stamp the woman image in the white space.


This is what you will have after you stamp in the white space.


6. Stamp the woman image on Designer Paper and cut out the dress and umbrella.


7. Adhere the dress on the woman and pop up the umbrella with dimensionals.


Again, here is your finished card after adhering the white panel
on a  4″ x 5-1/4″ black panel that is adhered to a Flirty Flamingo card base.


A little stamping on the inside, too.


You can even make her wear a sundress like my friend, Amanda McCann,
did at class by cutting the arms off the dress- a happy accident that is so cute!

SU Totally Trees with Stitched Shapes Framelits

November 25, 2016

I was playing around with the SU Totally Trees stamp set this weekend…LOVE IT!

So many fun things to do with a set with this many images…


I also had the SU Stitched Shapes Framelits on my desk so I introduced them to each other, and this is what came out of it:


I even invited two of the newer In Colors 2016-18- Flirty Flamingo and Peek-a-boo Peach to the party. I think they hit it off, don’t you think?

The sentiment is from SU Bunch of Blossoms stamp set. Don’t overlook this stamp set with its coordinating punch either! I really like the font used for the sentiments in this set and they fit in the Stitched Shapes Framelits, too…and the parts of the flowers kind of look like seashells and starfish to me.  Gotta love the stems, too. I need to make you a card soon to show it off, huh?
