SU Christmas Card

Stampin’ Up Still Scenes Bundle

October 21, 2019

This is what I called my Stampin’ Up Still Scenes No Dome Globe card…

I wanted to show off the stamped globe with the reflections on it so I just went No dome globe! It looks wonderful without the globe. Popping up the globe and the house colored with Stampin’ Blends adds more dimension to the card. I used the Scripty Embossing Folder to create a subtle elegant background to complement the detailed scrolling on the base image of the Snow Globe.

The sentiment from the Merry Christmas to All Stamp Set (in the Annual Catalog) is perfect for the image on the card.
I stamped the big sentiment in the right lower corner in Shaded Spruce to finish off the inside. The sentiment was stamped and popped up on a 1/2″ wide strip of Whisper White cardstock and bordered with a 3/4″ wide strip of Crumb Cake cardstock.

Stampin’ Up Perfectly Plaid with Wrapped in Plaid DSP

October 7, 2019

Need a quick Christmas card that does not lack in details? Well, here you go…

The Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8″ Ribbon and Metallic Pearls add the glitz to make this easy card one you would be proud to give! The design layout is pretty straightforward- so many cards on Pinterest are using the fabulous Stitched Nested Label Dies to showcase the classic tree punched out with the Stampin’ Up Pine Tree Punch. The Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper is the BOMB! The gorgeous color of Shaded Spruce paired with Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy and White with accents of gold in patterns of plaid- the ribbon and pearls match all the patterns!

Look how beautiful the plaid tree stamped in Shaded Spruce ink on the inside!
And…it is in photopolymer:)

Stampin’ Up Snow Front

September 9, 2019

I pretended I was a watercolor artist over the weekend…
this is what the Stampin’ Up Snow Front stamp set helped me do:

I can’t wait to play around some more with this set…
look at all the great “clear” photopolymer stamps to design your own masterpiece:

At first, I was bummed I did not use my Stamparatus to stamp the  Buffalo Check Background and it was not perfect but then thought nothing is more comfy than a well worn flannel shirt!

I easily cut down my sentiment stitched rectangle by cutting it out with the die and then placing the die right where I wanted it to be sized. You can customize the die cut to any size you want by sliding the die over the stitches that just sink down into the die cut. I use a post it to hold it in place when I die cut to be safe:) Think of all the possible sizes you can make!!

Mountains: Crumb Cake
Cabin and Deer: Soft Suede
Pond: Balmy Blue

Stampin’ Up Ready for Christmas

December 9, 2018


So, this past week, one of my friends, Angela, asked me where to find a card on my blog.
She wanted to refer a friend to a card that we made using the SU Ready for Christmas Bundle.
I got onto my computer, and indeed I did not post it! However, the funniest thing is…I actually had added it to the line up of displays this month
at class just to remind everyone at class that it is still in the Annual Catalog. So, Angela was able to see it and share it.

I perused Pinterest to find who I cased it from…because it was so darn neat!
I found it was Joanne Cantrell:

This is the one we created for a Product Class using the SU Ready for Christmas last year.
You can use any small patterned DSP to be the wallpaper!

A simple folding back of half of the card front at 2-3/4″ makes this fun fold.

A message can be written on the middle panel that is left unstamped. I should have put a little sentiment there:)

I forgot how cool this bundle is…those puppies and presents…what a great set that is in the Annual Catalog!


Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

SU I’ll Be Home

November 23, 2018

I finally inked up my SU I’ll Be Home stamp set. I used the lovely wood grain in the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper.
I  was going to use Cherry Cobbler or Real Red but instead paired the Gray Granite with Blackberry Bliss. I like it!

I love the big image of the house but our Layering Ovals just aren’t big enough for this one. So, I used my retired Ovals Framelits.
I imagine we all have them so just know this image worked well in the next to the largest oval.
I used a sentiment from the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set and die cut it with a small die from the Stitched Labels Framelits.

I added some glitz with Clear Wink of Stella on the roof lines and windows but it is sooooo hard to show it in a pic!

And even more difficult to photograph is the silver card I did.
It was embossed in silver with silver foil accents bordering it.
I promise is stunning in person.
