SU Birthday Card

SU Springtime Impressions with Itty Bitty Greetings

May 18, 2018

Happy Friday, kids! I made the quickest card in my history of cardmaking this morning…

die cut, sponge, stamp, die cut…DONE.

I used a Whisper White Notecard so I did not even have to score….hahaha.
I simply snipped off two little parts off the die cut, and it is the perfect size.
So, the die can be used for both A2 cards and notecads. Nice.

I wanted to play around with the NEW Springtime Impressions die
and see how it looked sponged with my daubers..so easy.
So easy I thought why not share my first attempt with all of you today?
I jazzed it up with some of the NEW Mint Macaron Faceted Dots
and used a NEW die from the Stitched Labels Framelits:)

That is the NEW Highland Heather ink- to me a very nice purple- the cardstock is a perfect match.
The NEW Gorgeous Grape is a lovely darker purple as well. So excited to have these new colors as “good” purple is hard to find! After typing purple a few times, I am thinking it is a funny word- made me giggle:)

Have a great weekend-
I am planning on playing with my new goodies to have fun stuff for my June luncheon in Pittsburgh!
Love my stamping gals so much- can’t wait to see them again!!!
Had fun with my Florida gang last night! How blessed I am!

SU Lilypad Lake Sneak Peek

May 4, 2018

Here is a sneak peek of the NEW bundle coming out June 1st in the Annual Catalog.
I used the new stamp set Lilypad Lake and its coordinating Lakeside framelits to create this simple card.

Both blues used on this card are new as well- the lighter blue is Balmy Blue and the darker one is Blueberry Bushel.
Balmy Blue is kind of a brighter mix of our retiring Marina Mist and Soft Sky.
The Balmy Blue panel with the waves die cut measures 3-3/4″ x 5″.
I bordered it with the new IN COLOR Blueberry Bushel cut to 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″.
I stamped some Blueberry Bushel waves to the inside with a sentiment of calmness.
The sun is  a 1/2″ circle of So Saffron cardstock set behind the awesome die cuts from the Lakeside Framelits.
I love having new dies to cut out sentiments, don’t you?

This new set has great little sailboats in it, too- it’s going to be a winner!

Don’t forget about my May Online Order gift: a FREE DSP Sampler
with (6) 4″ x 6″sheets of the beautiful Share What You Love Designer Series Paper
to any $40 ONLINE order* made in May! It will mail June 1-4!
Please use the Current Hostess Code at the top of my blog header.

*not to be used with any current promotions I have going on at the time

SU Birthday Wit with Picture Perfect Party DSP

March 30, 2018

I am at it again with that Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper
but this time I paired it with the super cute SU Birthday Wit stamp set…..LOVE IT!
I know you all know someone who will get a kick out of these sentiments!
And…of course, I love the “belated” one, I always need that one!

 

I used a 1-3/4″ x 4-3/4″ piece of the Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper
on each card with a  2″ x 5″ cardstock border and added a
Stitched Shapes accent. I pulled the colors from the paper.

“YOU’RE WELCOME” pairs with each sentiment on the inside of the card
along with “HAPPY BIRTHDAY”. I really like the font on this set!

Oh, I did add some little Pool Party sketched stars on this card
from the Marquee Messages stamp set.
And, aren’t those Tutti Frutti sequins just adorable?
