As I mentioned a few days ago, I came up to camp with the hubby this week and have been preparing for my card classes next week and my card swapping club that meets in early December. I have thank you and graduation/wedding cards for my part of the swapping so I decided to design my last graduation card using Nance’s cool sketch with diagonals and chevrons at The Paper Players # 160 this week. I used the new Stylish Stripes embossing folder on this card. I just cut out a portion of it and mounted it on a diagonal. I also used the new Chevron punch from the Holiday Mini-catalog. I know both of these new toys will get played with often:)

SU Word Play

There’s no doubt what my Pittsburgh teams wear- black and gold… Go Steelers, Go Penguins, Go Pirates !! I mashed it up  with the Friday Mashup #112 using these colors and keeping it clean and simple. I made my graduation cap with a hexagon and a diamond die.  I was also inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #88. And, since it is graduation season- I got ahead by making a card I will be needing in a couple of weeks.

SU Word Play Mother’s Day Candle Gift

You have already seen the card I made for my wonderfully awesome mom last month but…here’s a little gift to go with the card. We made these at Stamp Class as a gift for a mother or a friend…or for yourself as some gals said they were keeping it!! I used the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper and used coordinating colors to embellish a sweet blue candle. One friend said she was going to use this idea for shower favors…

SU Word Play for Christmas

The Muse Card Club Challenge #11 features a beautiful card by Laurie Willison. I was inspired by the colors of green/dark brown and the recessed sentiment. I liked the touch of bling and the polka dots on Laurie’s card as well. I am trying to make a few Christmas cards a month so I am not so crazy come holiday season. Here’s my take on the MUSE this week:

SU Word Play

I like to combine card challenges- it not only double challenges me but also gives me fresh new ideas to use for one challenge that I would not have thought of for another challenge. I was inspired by Jaydee’s shamrock over at The Paper Players this week to create a card for Pals Paper Arts # 153 Sketch Challenge  and SU Only Challenge #65 Going Green. I definitely knew that SU Gumball Green was the perfect color for a shamrock and “lucky” me that SU Print Poetry DSP  paper stack  had 3 designs in that color- perfect for Pals Paper Arts! I played around with creating shamrocks by cutting one out, folding the paper four times and cutting out a heart half way and none of these ideas cooperated with me and looked nice. So, in the end, I formed a shamrock from the small heart in the  Hearts-a-Flutter die set and jazzed it up with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and a Dahlia In Color button.
