SU Sympathy card

SU Wishing You Well Sneak Peek

August 22, 2018

I just fell in love with the delicate little bow in the SU Wishing You Well stamp set.
Has that ever happened to you? You are drawn to the set for one little image?

Of course, then I fall in love with all the other images!

I adore the lightly drawn sentiments- that stamp beautifully!
I thought the set paired well the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper.
As you can see I pulled the colors from the DSP- Mint Macaron, Cajun Craze, and Grapefruit Grove.
Although you can find Grapefruit Grove pearls in the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls,
I just colored my pearls with the Light Calypso Coral Alcohol Based Stampin’ Blends.

The base of my tent card is 4-1/4″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ on the 8-1/2″ side.
The DSP is a 4″ square. The white panel is 2-3/4″ x 4 bordered by a 3″ x 4-1/4″ Cajun Craze Panel.

SU Serene Garden Sneak Peek

May 16, 2018

There is a beautiful new bundle in the upcoming catalog with a very appropriate name-
it is called Serene Garden. It is so lovely.
I used it to make this sympathy card with the new soft colors of Soft Seafoam and Petal Pink.

I love this bundle not only for its images but also for the ability to cut them out with coordinating dies. But, the part I really love is the corner “embossing” die! Isn’t that just awesome? We have a new embossing mat coming out for the Big Shot that I just ordered- I wonder how different it will look when I use it?

The colors are subtle on this card as I wanted a soothing palette for a sympathy card but the popped up flowers add that little bit of texture and dimension to finish of the card. We also have a new All Occasion stamp set called Itty Bitty Greetings coming out that can stand in for the retiring Teeny Tiny Wishes (I love them both- two that are necessary in my stamping room). And…the little die from the Lakeside Framelits is just the ticket for cutting out the little sentiments! A few little pearls on the ends adds a little texture as well.

SU Lilypad Lake Sneak Peek

May 4, 2018

Here is a sneak peek of the NEW bundle coming out June 1st in the Annual Catalog.
I used the new stamp set Lilypad Lake and its coordinating Lakeside framelits to create this simple card.

Both blues used on this card are new as well- the lighter blue is Balmy Blue and the darker one is Blueberry Bushel.
Balmy Blue is kind of a brighter mix of our retiring Marina Mist and Soft Sky.
The Balmy Blue panel with the waves die cut measures 3-3/4″ x 5″.
I bordered it with the new IN COLOR Blueberry Bushel cut to 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″.
I stamped some Blueberry Bushel waves to the inside with a sentiment of calmness.
The sun is  a 1/2″ circle of So Saffron cardstock set behind the awesome die cuts from the Lakeside Framelits.
I love having new dies to cut out sentiments, don’t you?

This new set has great little sailboats in it, too- it’s going to be a winner!

SU Sorry for Everything with Heart Happiness

January 8, 2018

Happy Monday, friends! What a wonderful weekend I had with all my stamping buddies at our Annual Sale-a-bration Kick Off Luncheon! I still have to pinch myself when I think of all the special friends I have made since I became a demonstrator. Thanks to all of you who came and braved the cold- inside and ouside- heeheehee.

This is one of the 6 cards we made at our Occasions Catalog Kick Off.
It incorporates a technique called an Eclipse Effect.

How did I make it?
Well, I have another video for you!!

Sorry for all the Ummm-s.
My former homeschool students would not be happy
after all the years I told them….too many ummmms!!!

I forgot to show you the inside…

SU An Open Heart

November 12, 2015

Finding the words to convey your sympathy to someone is one of the hardest things to do. Taking the time to send a card is just one way to show  you care. Here is a simple yet elegant card using the SU An Open Heart stamp set and the pretty crochet trim from Stampin’ Up.

SU An Open Heart Blues wCrochet Trim

Can you notice the subtle two colors on the branch behind the bird? I stamped the branch first in Lost Lagoon ink and then sponge daubered on some Night of Navy ink.
I also stamped the branch on the inside:

SU An Open Heart open

If you would like, you can make a more dramatic look to the branch by using a more diverse color like this one- I stamped it on Wild Wasabi first and then sponged on Night of Navy. I think I needed to be a little more “not so circular” daubing on it though now that I look at it…lol…I mean, really…LOL!

SU An Open Heart Two Panels

I love how these sentiments go together to share your feelings.

SU An Open Heart Inside

You can also use this set with the other versatile sentiments:

Item # 135002 Clear Mount, Wood Mount # 134999
