SU Serene Silhouettes

January 2, 2015

Oh my, I bet you all are as worn out as I am from the holidays! I think my dishwasher, washer, and dryer have never stopped running. It was wonderful to have the house full but I am enjoying this little piece of quiet this morning:)

I managed to get Heidi’s  Friday Mashup # 191 done but did not mash it up this week. But that’s okay…you can always pick one part of the challenge, too!


Create a project with a “Winter theme.

Create a project  with “Snowflakes.”


Mash it Up! and create a “Winter project with Snowflakes.”

I am in need of sympathy cards so I decided to use the SU Serene Silhouettes stamp set with its leafless winter branches to create a card with somber colors. I kind of went totally opposite of the light and airy theme with snowflakes.

I am currently fighting with my computer, iphone, and iphoto program so

please excuse the quality of the photo:(

SU Serene Silhouettes with Loving Thoughts

When I saw Jaydee’s sketch for The Paper Players #155, I immediately thought of a tent card with a circle! So I took  some liberty with the sketch and came up with this card:

SU Serene SilhouettesLoving Thoughts

Card Recipe:
STAMPS: SU Serene Silhouettes, SU Loving Thoughts
INK: SU Bermuda Bay, SU Soft Suede, SU Summer Starfruit
PAPER: SU Bermuda Bay, SU Soft Suede, SU Summer Starfruit, SU Whisper White
TOOLS: SU Stampin’ Dimensionals, Nestabilities Circles dies, CB Embossing Folder

I masked out the moon with a sticky note and sponged SU Bermuda Bay and SU Summer Starfruit ink onto my white paper. Then I stamped the image over the sponged ink with the masking removed so the birds would stand out from the stark white. To make the tent, I scored a 5 1/2 inch by 5 1/2 inch square at 2 3/4 inches. To make sure it will fit in an A2 envelope, place the tent on an A2 size card front and then place your circle on the tent keeping in within the parameters of the A2 size.
