March paper pumpkin alternatives

I took last months SU! Paper Pumpkin kit and plussed them to full A2 sized cards. I stitched one card just to test it out and quickly decided it was too much work for my taste.  

I thought the striking black and white geometric shapes lent themselves to coordinating with bold bright colors. So I used SU! Melon Mambo, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight.

I made three of the Thank You cards and three of the Happy Birthday to You design. I love these stamps that come with the kit. So versatile and usable on so many designs. These are quick and simple to put together but pack a lot of punch.

Painted Blooms and Lovely Amazing You card gift set

Making some quick and simple gift sets using the gorgeous SU! Painted Blooms DSP as the main focal point. I layered it onto coordinating card stocks and onto an embossed piece of white card stock.

I added a simple SU! Blackberry Bliss ribbon and tied a bow with the thick twine. I glued on 3 random sequins for a lil bling.

I stamped these sentiments multiple times using my MISTI, so that I could achieve the deep dark SU! Blackberry Bliss color. Then I punched them out and layered on the scallop circle, popping it up over the ribbon. These cards went together very quickly, but you would never know it, I think they turned out very cute.

Irresistibly yours for Easter

Happy Easter! These are two simple cards made using the Stampin' Up! Irresistibly Yours papers cut into banners and inked with a sponge. I colored small sections of vellum paper with Blendabilities and then punched the butterflies. I also colored the pearls with the Blendabilities.

Ink the edges and tie a bow and layer it on a card base. Easy Peasy and a bright and cheery Easter card. I hope everyone has a blessed day full of family, fun and a lil bit of good chocolate.

FUN swap cards with MISTI

My teddy bear themed swap card for last month. Made super simple by stamping with my MISTI. I am loving this stamping tool.

I colored the bear and the balloons with SU! Blendabilities and added some ribbon and layer of black cardstock. 

I decided it needed a lil something more, so I added the cute lil SU! sentiment curved around the bears ear.

Also stamped, with the MISTI, all the card backs with this long narrow stamp. Not a single rolled inky edge in the bunch. Have I said I love the MISTI? Because I do!!!

Irresistibly yours card set

I fell in love with this card design, and as you can see I CASE'd it completely. Barely changing any detail. It was so beautiful to me.

I used 8 different SU! inks and sentiment stamps. Also 8 different Blendabilities pens to color on vellum before I punched out the butterflies. 

Sponging the ink onto the Irresistibly Yours papers allows me to create those lighter and darker tones from one ink color. I thought it was very water color-ish and beautifully soft.

These papers make it too easy to created beautiful pieces of art. 

Here is a close up of all the lil details. The vellum butterfly colored with matching (or sometimes just coordinating) Blendabilities. The square layer is die cut using Simon Says Stamp! Stitched Squares. I used my score board to add lines on the card base around the sentiment. And finally the rhinestones. All quietly working together to create an ethereal card. 

These are all of the SU! ink colors I used. So lovely!!! Now I want to create a wild and crazy group of reds, hot pinks and yellows. Quite the opposite of soft and peaceful. I'm thinking bold and in your face!!

Simple scraps card

I just love when scraps laying on my work space speak to me. Encouraging me to make something stunning. It's easy when the scraps are beautiful, as this floral scrap from Fancy Pants Burlap & Bouquets 6 x 6 paper pad is. I stamped the curvy SU! sentiment. Embossed the Very Vanilla card stock with a sweet butterfly folder. Layered it over Basic Black card stock,  adding some punched details and mini pearls and finished it off with SU! Strawberry Slush twine. Quick and simple.

My first fork bow, front and center

I made this card for a friend who loves yellow, pink and tulips. Sometime all the supplies align and it comes out great. I love this card.

My inspiration came from this card, you can see I changed it up quite a bit, but the general layout and design are the same. I even tried the technique of embossing the background and flipping the paper and double embossing so there is raised and debossed textures showing. This embossing folder wasn't the best choice, its a lot busier than the large polka dots she used on her card. But it is still a cool look. 

I used this video to learn how to make the fork bow. I used SU! Seam Binding, it is soft and very flexible. I think it turned out adorable. That's why I put it right up front and center. It's like the cherry on top of the perfect sundae.
