SU Wedding Card

SU Floral Frames for Brittany’s Big Day!

September 29, 2018

We spent the last couple days in the Outer Banks celebrating the marriage of Brittany and Dan.

I wanted to make her card match her wedding invitations so I used some retired DSP called Timeless Elegance.
I did case myself from this card.
On the inside of the card, I used the sentiment below from the Floral Phrases stamp set.

SU Petal Palette Silver

February 14, 2018

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends!

In the spirit of LOVE today, I have a wedding/anniversary card to show you using the
SU Petal Palette Bundle.
The Pinewood Planks dry embossed panel is just enough texture to be noticed but lets
the silver embossed roses take center stage on this card.

Silver Heat Embossing pairs so well with Smoky Slate ink.
I usually use Smoky Slate ink to stamp sentiments with delicate fonts, so much easier than heat embossing:)

It’s difficult to see in the photo but I used the beautiful silver foil paper to die cut the scallop oval that borders the Stitched Shapes oval. Some scattered rhinestones finished off the card wonderfully, don’t you think?

SU Seasonal Bells

November 3, 2016

My van is packed, and I am off to Atlanta for the Stampin’ Up Onstage event Friday through Sunday then on my way back to my sweet stamping group in Pittsburgh! I wanted to share the swaps I am taking to share with other demonstrators in Atlanta…I just fell in love with the SU Seasonal Bells stamp set as I played around with it…so easy to stamp and punch out!



I am also sharing these cards with LeAnne and the gang over at the Paper Players Challenge # 319. It’s a Tic-Tac Toe challenge- I am choosing Snowflakes (on my bells and one pattern on one of my cards), Patterned Paper, and Ribbon.


Silver, silver bells…


Gold bells, gold bells…


I used the snowflake patterned paper on the card below:

*Big difference in night photo and day photo with my amateur photography skills and high ceiling lights that cast shadows:(


Just a simple inside:


This stamp set with its coordinating punch is perfect for not only Christmas but also for a wedding card! It has a cute little Mr. and Mrs. that can be stamped inside the bell image- just how sweet is that?


I really love the This Christmas Designer Series Specialty Paper- 24 sheets in a pack with Vanilla and classic Christmas Real Red and Garden Green but also Black and Vanilla patterns-
be sure to check it out!

SU Big News Wedding Card

SU Big News Wedding Close UP

Hello, friends! I have a fun fold card for you today that uses the colors LeAnne picked for

The Paper Players #244 this week.


SU Big News Wedding Matte Main photo

I used the bold font image from SU Big News as the focal point on my fun fold card.

I embellished my card with some Sahara Sand 7/8″Lace Trim that is in new catalog and Lost Lagoon Stitched Satin Ribbon and the oh so pretty Something Borrowed DSP that are both retiring- available while supplies last. The Itty Bitty Accents flowers added a little fun, too.

To make the fold, you simply score your 4 1/4″ x 11″ card base at 5 1/2″ and 9″ and fold the flap over. Here are a couple of views:

With this flap measurement, you have plenty of room to jot a message  on the inside of the card while at the same time having a beautiful inside sentiment as a focal point as well.

SU Big News Wedding Inside

As I was taking the first photo, I temporarily adhered the front flap down and thought, “Hmmm, you could just fold it back and permanently adhere it.” Another neat design element to remember!

So happy that the Big News stamp set is sticking around! It is a great All-Occasion set.
