SU Birthday Card

SU 25 Again Fun Fold Video Tutorial

November 7, 2018

I am so excited to be leaving for the Orlando Stampin’ Up Onstage Convention today!
I made this video of a neat fun fold the day before I left…
so maybe it is a little crazy because I was all hyped up…lol.




I just love that gold candle embellishment!

You can easily make it a gift card holder by adhering the circle to the gift card and
then adhering the gift card to the card base.

I added some little gold dots to the candles using a Gold Sharpie Marker to add a little gold to the inside
along with the sequins I am not so sure belong…hahaha

Use the Layering Circle Framelits for the Circles as follows:
25 Again Circle: use 1-7/8″ for the white circle, use 2-1/8″ for the black circle, use 2-1/4″ for the gold scallop
Cake Circle: use 1-3/8″ for the white circle, use 1-5/8″ for the black circle, use for 1-3/4″ the the gold scallop
You’re How Old? Circle: use 1-7/8″ for the white circle, use 2-1/8″ for the black circle, use 2-1/4″ for the gold scallop
Card Opening at top: use the 2-7/8″ circle to cut the DSP and then the 2-5/8″ circle to cut inside the DSP on the Black Cardstock itself

Card Base: Basic Black 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 2-1/2 and 6-3/4″ on the 11″ side.
Trim off 1/4″ off of the right side while still in the trimmer.
(3) 2-1/2″ Basic Black squares for circles
Broadway Bound DSP: Top 2-1/4″ x 4″, Bottom 4″ x 3-3/4″
Gold Foil: (3) 2-1/2″ squares for scallops
Whisper White inside: 4″ x 3-3/4″, (3) 2″ squares for circles

SU Botanical Bliss Bundle

November 5, 2018

Oh, how I love Blackberry Bliss although I did call it Blackberry Mess last week at class
since it seems to travel all over the place when we are using it…LOL.

I used the die with the lovely floral design.

I simply used the one die above to cut out the flower and
then another die below to cut out the bottom around the leaves to get a free standing flower.

I also die cut Mossy Meadow leaves and adhered them to the Blackberry Bliss leaves to give the contrast.

The Layered Leaves embossed panel sets the stage for the card. To jazz up the focal image,
I embossed the sentiment in gold, added  a vellum stitched oval, a scalloped gold foil border, and scattered some gold sequins.
The Wood Textures DSP with the Gold Metallic Edged Ribbon gives the card a shabby chic feel,
don’t you think?

Simple stamped images finish off the inside of the card:)

SU Country Road

August 6, 2018

Taking a break from flowers, and using an awesome, rustic stamp set called Country Home.
I was inspired by the catalog sample on page 163 of the Annual Catalog.
A great card for the guys!

Wondering how I made that rectangle frame?
I started with a 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock. I stamped it with the Hardwood Background Stamp.
Then, I used the rectangle die from the Barn Door Framelits to cut out the opening.

I stamped the bottom of the Very Vanilla panel with grass using Old Olive ink and then embossed the horse with Copper Embossing Powder.
Next, I ran the Very Vanilla panel through the Big Sot using the Subtle Embossing Folder. Notice how cool the copper looks?
I roughed up my edges with the retired SU Distressing Tool and sponged some Soft Seude ink on the edges.
I love how the sponged ink seeped in the subtle creases.

SU Hand Delivered Four Panel Screen Card Video

July 16, 2018

It’s graduation party time, and I am sad that I can not be at my niece Ashalee’s graduation party
this week. I made her a special card to celebrate her achievement…

Oh, by the way…her school colors and orange and blue:)

I have a video showing you how to make a four panel screen card:

OH MY GOSH….I kept saying the panels were each 4″ when they are actually 3″  which is (3″ x 4 panels= 12″) So Sorry, friends!!!!

Since Pumpkin Pie is such a beautiful bright orange,
I paired it with the NEW Blueberry Bushel cardstock. I just loved them together:)


The Light Night of Navy Stampin’ Blend alcohol marker
blended well to complement Blueberry Bushel. 

Simple and colorful, perfect for Ashalee!
