SU Masculine Card

SU Truly Tailored and a Bow Tip

July 30, 2018

Look what I found yesterday as I was searching around my blog…an UNPULISHED VIDEO!
Oh gosh, I forgot to post it before the Truly Tailored Bundle was retired…
but I know  a lot of you have it so I am posting it now:)

Remember a design element on a card can be used with any stamp set, paper, or embellishment you have on hand!
At the end of the video,  I show you a great little tip to make a neat and tidy bow that I know you will love!

These were the leftover triangles from my Criss Cross Card.

You can see that post with the video HERE.

Measurements:
An A2 size card using a cardstock base of 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ on the 8-1/2″ side
Mount the two triangles (made from cutting a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of DSP in half diagonally) on a piece of 4″ x 5-1/4″ cardstock.
Adhere the diagonal bands down the middle BEFORE adhering the triangle panel to the card base so you can trim off the strips at the corners.

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

SU Apron of Love For Husband

April 20, 2018

I am so excited to show you this card today using
the SU Apron of Love and Bottles and Bubbles Bundles.
It just makes me happy! I used the sentiments from SU Guy Greetings.

 

I saw this card done by Handmade by Irene with a grill so I got pinspired to make my own!

I tried e-ver-y-thing possible to make that bottom part of the grill that keeps the tripod together. Everything looked goofy- the small oval punch, small circles, small ovals…it was just driving me crazy! In the end, the right piece was right in front of my nose! I just die cut the rolling pin, cut it, and pushed it together!

I used the 1-1/2″ circle punch to make the upper part of the grill.
I just keep thinking it looks like Pac Man…lol.

I did the inside two different ways…

The grass die comes from the Picnic Basket Builder Framelits,
it’s a great way to finish of the inside of the card, don’t you think?

 If you add bring some brews to the BBQ…

it fits into the  “food and drink” theme for Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge # 146

April 24, 2018– Thank you for choosing my card as a winner at Stamp Ink Paper!

SU Truly Tailored Gift Card Holder

March 2, 2018

I was challenged to make a card using supplies given to me by my upline last month for an online event. If I recall correctly, I was given card bases of Night of Navy and Very Vanilla cardstock, a panel of Tranquil Tide Cardstock, various 3″ x 4″ pieces of True Gentleman Designer Series Paper, some Linen Thread and a button. We were to use stamped images from our SU Truly Tailored stamp set on our card.

I have to admit….I did not do it in the time frame,
and did not use the Linen Thread and button but…
I did get it done!!!

I made a gift card holder as my project.
I just folded back the front of the card (in half at 2-3/4″) and trimmed off the end 1″ of the flap
before I adhered it just on the top and bottom so the gift card could slip in.


Super easy to do and used the DSP in a nice coordinated way…what do you think?
I really love the colors in this DSP especially the bold ones I chose on this card.

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

SU Nailed It Bundle

March 1, 2017

I am in a swap with a few gals each month, and we decided to play
with the SU Nailed It bundle this time around.

I love a fun fold card so I made this simple one that is easy to mail:

su-nailed-it-congrats-front-on

I absolutely love the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder…super cool!
I embossed a piece of Silver Foil which is quite elegant but if you are doing a large number of them, you can use Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil like I did on this card.

su-nailed-it-slightly-open

I thought the “Nailed it” sentiment fit into a congratulations theme so I used a sentiment
from SU Scenic Sayings on the front of the card. Of course, the Stitched Shapes Framelits always
add a special touch to a card, don’t you think?

su-nailed-it-congrats-open

I also added the word “YOU” from the SU Jar of Love to finish off the sentiment.

SU High Tide

January 23, 2017

The new SU High Tide stamp set will make you feel like an artist when you are finished making a card. It is so EASY to create a scene with the sand, grass, lighthouse, birds, and water! The shadow on the lighthouse really finishes the scene…

su-high-tide-fms

In retrospect, I used Basic Gray for the shadow which I think was a good idea but I carried it through on the birds on the land and in the sky but next time, I think I may use black for both of the birds. What do you think?

A little insight into this card…

As we were watching our Steelers go down the drain last night, my mind wandered off to the Freshly Made Sketch Challenge # 271.  So I inconspicuously excused myself to make this card.

fms-final-271-001

I was thinking of how the light could be captured inside the design element in the sketch. Then my search for a sentiment…YOU LIGHT UP MY LIFE…came from the Jar of Love stamp set. There is also one in the Annual catalog’s Hostess Set No Pun Intended.

Look at the neat images you can use to paint your landscape…
