July Paper Pumpkin cards


This may be my most favorite Paper Pumpkin kit yet. I love the stamp set. I haven't done much with the papers that came in this set, yet. I will find some inspiration. 


Here I have just randomly stamped the cups all over SU! Crumb Cake card stock in the Early Espresso ink. I then colored with the no longer available, but I still love them, Blendabilities. Super quick and simple, but so cute. 



Here I used the die cut tea cup shapes. I created a little tea bag pocket and decorated it with a portion of doily.



Attach it to the front of a card, here you see one pocket open, with the packaged tea bag slipped inside. I used a glue dot to hold it closed after filling it.



This is a gift card holder made with the Envelope Punch board. The sentiment is a sneaky peak at a new set, A Little Something, coming soon in the Holiday Catalog.

I stamped and then fussy cut out the tea cup. Then see how I was able to create a mirror image? Ugh!!! Not as easy as it looks. I followed this tutorial, but none of my inks created a dark enough stamped image. So I finally just got out an extra fine point Sharpie and traced over all my light stamped images. Not perfect but it works. Fussy cut the mirror image and away you go.



Same gift card holder decorated for Christmas with yet another sneaky peach of paper, Merry Moments, also available in the Holiday Catalog.


This is the inside of the gift card holder. Very cool! The tea/coffee cups are perfect for decorating a Starbucks gift card.

June Paper Pumpkin cards



These are my completed June SU! Paper Pumpkin kit cards. I love this months kit. Love the stamps. Love the ink pad. Love the girly cards and the masculine cards. This monthly subscription kit just keeps getting better and better. 


This masculine design, I didn't change much either, from their original intent. I didn't want to, because I loved it straight out of the box. But now that I see all the adorable alternatives on Pinterest, that other people have made, I want to order a refill kit and do some of the alternate designs.

So much fun in a box.

Medallion card



How much do I love that this medallion stamp is from the $1 bins at Joann's and the polka dots were made with a pencil eraser dipped in the ink pad? Very, very much!!!

I used SU! inks in Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise and Tangerine Tango on Crumb Cake card stock. A few rhinestones, some bakers twine and a sentiment layered up on different punched coordinating card stocks and you have a finished note card. Quick and easy and inexpensive. Can't beat that.

CASE'd birthday cards



This card is CASE'd from this beauty I found on Pinterest. As you see I loved it so much I changed very little. I guess I just did more....of everything. The leaves, the butterflies, the inking around the edges. I used sequins instead of rhinestones.

The leaves are from SU! Kinda Eclectic in Wild Wasabi ink, the butterflies are also SU! Kinda Eclectic in Strawberry Slush ink. The sentiment is SU! Endless Birthday Wishes.

French swirls background card


I made these cards a while back. After Rubber Stamp Convention in Sac, where I had purchased this Deep Red French Swirls background stamp. I stamped it using my MISTI and Momento Tuxedo Black ink. I used CTMH epoxy dots to add the ombre effect with the dots. Layers and layers of card stock and a bow and its all done. A simple but elegant note card. 



Same idea here, just a change up of colors and the addition of a sentiment on the front. (Sorry for the blurry pic.)

I absolutely love this stamp. And the MISTI allowed me to stamp multiple times to get the deep dark all over image. I love it!

Stamp-a-stack cards class


A simple masculine birthday card made using SU! Gorgeous Grunge stamps with Sahara Sand and Mossy Meadow ink. The sentiment is from SU! Four You set. I took my design inspiration from this card on Pinterest, just changing up my colors and sentiment.


A beautiful card where the SU! Painted Blooms paper is the star, complimented by an embossed frame and any simple sentiment. A little coordinating card stock, ribbon and bakers twine completes this quick yet stunning card. 


These party favors are made using the SU! Curvy Keepsakes die. I cut it out in card stock and also in cute polka dotted doilies by Bo Bunny. Then I glued the doily to the card stock shape and assembled. I filled them with star burst candies, because their wrappers went so nicely with the bright doilies. These made a quick and cute party favor.

Mother's day card & gift bag



Of course I finally order (and subsequently fell in love with) SU! Stippled Blossom just a month or two before they discontinue it. True I can continue to create with it for my own use, but I can't show my friends and have them fall in love with it too, because that would just be mean. But for everyone who already owns it, isn't it awesome? I know, I'm late to the party. As usual.

This is the card I made for my mom for Mother's Day. Her last name is Rose. Her favorite flower is Rose. So I thought this was perfect. 



I used the top stamp layer only, the stippled design. And I stamped twice with SU! Real Red ink to get the two tones. Same with the leaf stamp, only using SU! Wild Wasabi ink. I had done the old masking using a post it note trick. I had punched out a circle and masked where I wanted my sentiment. This sentiment is from Paper Trey Ink. 


The inside sentiment and shape around it is from CTMH. I have had it for a long while, so I'm not at all certain they still sell it. I stamped both the sentiments using my MISTI so that I could stamp them multiple times to get a super deep red color. 


This is the decorations I put on a plain kraft gift bag. I used some discontinued SU! Real Red ribbon to made the bow. 



I layered many paper and silk flowers from my stash and put a long since discontinued SU! brad through the centers of two of them.
