Painted petals card



I have been crafting up a storm lately, but I can't seem to make myself sit down and blog.

Here is a simple take on the gorgeous SU! Painted Petals stamps. You just can't go wrong with this stamp set. It's simply (amazingly) amazing. ;) *groan* Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Simple punch art cards


These are my monthly swap cards. I was inspired by this card design I found on Pinterest. I kept mine flatter for mailing and simple for note cards or the recipients could add a sentiment on the front or the inside. 



These were a lot of fun to make. I used SU! In Color DSP stack, the Curly Label punch, the Mini Flower punch and the Piercing Mat to create these simple monochromatic note cards.

Sweetheart cards



I am playing around with new SU! toys and Valentine's designs I found on Pinterest. The first card I mimicked this card. I added a different sentiment, a lace bow, a few mini punched hearts and a card stock border.



This balloon card is my favorite of the day. It was loosely based on this card, at least that is where I got the idea for the sentiments used as balloon strings. I did pop up the tops of the hearts with dimensionals and glued the bottom point directly to the card above a string to give them dimension. Again with the lace bow and the card stock border for additional oomph.  


And finally this card is very loosely based on this pretty card. I am loving all of SU!'s new heart themed goodies, the embossing folder, the border punch, the Stacked With Love DSP and the Hello Life stamp set. So much fun!!!

Too kind card


Here is some more stamping on SU! Crumb Cake paper first in Whisper White Craft ink followed by the same stamps in Hello Honey, Strawberry Slush and Coastal Cabana, with the SU! Too Kind stamp set. I added a bow out of the SU! Strawberry Slush Thick Bakers Twine. I am really enjoying this technique on kraft colored papers.

Painted petals cards



I saw this SU! Painted Petals technique here, and had to try it right away. I think it made some really bright and springy cards.



I used SU! ink pads in Daffodil Delight, Strawberry Slush and Blackberry Bliss on the flower stamps and Wild Wasabi for the leaves.



Add some coordinating ribbon and spritz with Tattered Angels Pearl Glimmer Mist and its ready to go.

Petite pairs card gift set



I have seen many cards recently using kraft card stock and a stamp in white ink and then stamped again over the top with another ink, I wanted to give it a try.




I used SU! Baked Brown Sugar and Strawberry Slush card stock with Whisper White craft ink followed by Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana and Hello Honey inks.


The sentiments are various SU! stamps and the flowers are from SU! Petite Pairs. 


I also learned that for a bow and ribbon to fit around a 4 inch card topper, wrap the ribbon around a 2 inch acrylic block and tie your bow. I pulled it off of the block and snipped it just a little off center. Since I knew I wanted my bow to be off to the right side of the card front, I cut the right side shorter. Then wrap the cut ends to the back and tape it down. It has the appearance of wrapping all the way around the card front, but actually saved me 3 inches of ribbon per card. That's a nice chunk of ribbon when making a set of cards. 



Here is the supplies I used for this card.

1st Stamp-A-Stack class


The wonderful SU! Occasions Catalog and the fun Sale-A-Bration! Catalog are now available to order from, so we planned a card class around some of the goodies available in both. The above design is using SU! Big Day stamp set with Stampin' Blendabilities in Bermuda Bay and Pink Pirouette. 



This card is made with the SU! Endless Birthday Wishes and new Lotus Blossom stamp sets in either Blushing Bride, Pink Pirouette and Strawberry Slush inks or Wisteria Wonder and Perfect Plum inks for the flowers and Wild Wasabi for the stems and the card stock.


This is Tina's design using SU! Painted Petals stamp set in Pool Party and Wild Wasabi inks.


This was created with the new SU! Stacked With Love DSP stack and the SU! Crazy About You stamp and coordinating die set. So fun and easy to use! Love it!


This is a gift I made for my friend that was bringing a new (to me) stamper. A small token of appreciation.


These are the four cards that are wrapped up in the gift package. I made these with a large polka dot stamp from a prior SU! Paper Pumpkin kit and the Stamped With Love DSP stack and various sentiments from several SU! stamp sets.
