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

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!
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 you..it is stunning in person.
Don’t forget that the Online Extravaganza is up and running!

I have a video for you today using the Flourish Filigree Stamp Set and the Pretty Label Punch.
I loved how Judy May placed a little bit of ribbon off the bottom of the tag on one of her cards.
I was inspired to do the same, doesn’t it add so much to the card?
Below is the Real Red/Silver version in landscape position but with the stamp in the same place on the Stamparatus.
I made up a few different versions but only had to get the stamp placement done once on the Stamparatus!
Here is the Thank You card I did for my mother-in-law’s passing last month.
