Su Truly Grateful

SU Truly Grateful with SU Gently Falling

It’s Friday already? This week flew by…I had a blast with some great gals last night playing around with the Perfect Blend stamp set. As I was getting things together for class  earlier in the afternoon with my back out of sorts, I almost forgot I had a card to do for the Friday Mashup #170! I got to work and finished in record time, and was even happy with my card:)



Here’s your Mashup Challenge:
  • Create a project using the “Sketch.”
  • Create a project using the “Delft Tile Technique.” Tutorial here
  • or Mash it Up! and create a project using the “Sketch & Delft Tile Technique.”


I watched the video but went a little out of the box and did a Faux Tile card. I promise I will do a Delft Tile in the future. The Faux Tile essentially is the same thing but with a clear embossed layer over it making it look like ceramic tile. I simply scored my paper, stamped my images, covered it in Versamark, and heat embossed it with Clear embossing powder after I sponged it a bit on the edges and middle. I also clear embossed the acorn and the sentiment. I made a similar card with my class last year so I was familiar with the Faux Tile technique which made my card come together quickly.

Check out the second photo to see the ceramic look.

Here’s a sneak peek at a new  Stampin’ Up stamp set Truly Grateful available for order August 1st in the Holiday Mini-catalog! My pal Wendy won it on Prize Patrol at convention and graciously let me play with it until mine came! I really like it- simple and rustic to use for the Thanksgiving holiday and  the thank you cards to send thereafter! I flipped Amy’s sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #96 to create a tag on my card front:
