Hop on over to the Friday Mashup and see what the DT has come up with…hope you play along this week!
By now, you have probably guessed that SU Simply Sketched is my favorite set in the new catalog! Actually, I may have told you that already. I wanted to play around with the flower in the set and use some new favorites also in the new catalog – Strawberry Slush from the In Colors 2013-15 and Quatrefancy DSP. Here is what I came up with using the layout at Freshly Made Sketches # 93 and the Tic-Tac-Toe grid from Amy’s The Friday Mash-Up # 117 – Pearls, Ribbon, Flowers …
Below is a pic of the card before I added the pearls- I like them both but think the pearls added a touch of fancy to my black tie card. What do you think?

OH GOLLY, IT LOOKS LIKE OTTAWAMOM AND I ARE THINKING ON THE SAME WAVELENGTH. I LITERALLY TOOK A GLANCE AT BOTH SITES BEFORE I POSTED- THEN HAD TO TAKE A DELIVERY AT MY DOOR AND WHEN I POSTED- MY CARD WENT RIGHT NEXT TO BRENDA’S ON BOTH SITES…LOL! NEEDLESS TO SAY, I LOVE YOUR CARD, BRENDA!!
I love when a card challenge has a game to play! This week, LeAnne at The Paper Players # 152 gave us a bunch of choices with her tic-tac-toe grid. I just love the SU Simply Sketched Hostess Set and have been using the sentiments with a lot of different sets. However, this time I am using the perched birdie in the grass and a sentiment from another great Hostess Set- Express Yourself. I got out my blender pens, some watercolor paper, and pretended I was a watercolor artist. I love how SU products enable anyone to be an artist…even me!

I used my first piece of DSP from the new SU catalog today! Do you ever find yourself reluctant to cut into DSP because it is so pretty? I really like a lot of the prints in the Gingham Garden especially the Island Indigo. I paired it up with the SU Secret Garden stamp set and a sentiment from Simply Sketched (again, love it!). I used The Paper Players # 151 sketch to lay out the card. Hope you enjoy the deep, bright colors;)

What a fun time I had last night with my stamping friends- we all had dinner and class with our friend, Stacey Ailes. She prepared some beautiful cards for us, and I got to use the sweet SU Summer Silhouettes stamp set. I love it! I like how she showed us to use a white gel pen to accent the smaller flowers. I was inspired to design a card using this set and decided the ColourQ Challenge # 194 was a great starting point. I did not have any SU Poppy Parade ink but I did have some Poppy Parade Polka Dot DSP so I used it to ground my image. The think the SU firm foam ink pads stamp darker than my old linen ones and this time was no exception- it looks as if the DSP and the lacey flower are the same color! But, those flowers are indeed Calypso Coral. I used another new favorite sentiment from the new catalog found in the SU Simply Sketched set- a hostess gift with a qualifying order.
