SU One in a Million

SU One in a Million with a Sketched Birthday Balloon

Oh, golly… I am going to call this entry into The Friday MashUp # 119 the Wednesday MessUp since I managed to take an entirely clean work surface and turn it into this for just one card:


But in the end…I Mashed it up with the sketch and a lot of NEW catalog items- the Birthday Basics DSP, the Crisp Cantaloupe Ruffled Stretch Ribbon, and the new paper colors like Smoky Slate, Crisp Cantaloupe and Bermuda Bay (a return to the line-up). I love how stamp sets become fresh and new to me when I use new colors, papers, and accessories!

I masked out the ONE on my stamp image by placing a small piece of post-it note over it before I inked it so I could use the number 1 instead of the word one. Oh, and don’t forget to remove the post-it before you stamp!

SU One in a Million

I loved the colors for Colour Q # 182 this week and thought of flowers at first. Then I couldn’t get my mojo running with it. Thought about the colors some more and took a look at The Paper Players # 138 this week for more inspiration. Looked through my stamps for a set that has been neglected and decided to use SU One in a Million. I am always asked if I have any baby cards so that’s how I came to this…

SU Madison Avenue- SAB 2013 for Dynamic Duos #37

I absolutely adore soft, earthy colors like Soft Suede and Crumb Cake so Dynamic Duos #37 was right up my alley this week. I was equally happy to use another STAMPIN’ UP Sale-A-Bration 2013 stamp set called Madison Avenue. I initially looked at this set more like a collection of stamps that could be used with other stamp sets rather than a set in and of itself.  However, I have been seeing some amazing creations in the card world using this set. I think I will be using it a lot in the future especially since it was FREE!! And you could pick this set OR the Vine Street Embossing Folder used on my card with a minimum $50 order. Gotta love Sale-A-Bration with its free items;)

I also used my new Designer Builder Brads from the Spring Catalog- oh my, LOVE them!! And there are 16 designer brads in the package with 20 epoxy bubbles for only $6.95. Imagine what you can do with them.  Comment on this post if you have some neat ideas…


Here is a close up of the Designer Builder Brad:

MOJO258 goes Above and Beyond…

This week’s challenge was a fun sketch that lended itself well to the SU One in a Million stamp set that I have been itching to use on a card!

While I was making this card, Jim stepped into the stamping area and asked if I had anything to cut a template for a piece on  his boat. I said, yes,  you can use this or that to do the job. He remarked how his dad always said that having the right tools is 90% of the job. I agreed! This card is a perfect example of using a lot of cool tools like circle punches to produce a neat card.
