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.

Ghost technique polka dot cards



I was playing around with my Misti and Paper Trey Ink polka dot background stamps. Trying my hand at the ghost technique. My inspiration came from this card on Pinterest.


SU! Crumb Cake and Whisper White papers used on all of the cards. This one adds SU! Garden Green ink and paper. 


This is Island Indigo. 


And finally Rich Razzleberry.

Pretty and simple cards. I enjoyed my first attempts at this style of ghost technique.

Thank you framed window card


More birthday stamps at work here. Loving these Winnie & Walter background stamps. I did kind of an ombre effect with the stars background stamp. 


These are from SU! Paper Pumpkin kits. Two different months. Love them. I never would have been able to line up the thank you background stamp and repeat it four times to create that big covered area with my MISTI. It made it quick and simple. LoVe!!!!


Here's most all of the tools used on this card. I did also use SU! star dies to cut the shapes and the frames out.

Thank you card



This is made with adorable stamps I received for my birthday from my sweet mom. Thanks mom!! So easy to make a cute background surrounding the SU! sentiment.


These are the tricks of the trade. I did learn that the VersaFine ink needs a few moments to dry, so if you move too fast, you run the risk of smudging the black ink. Not good. So be patient.

I am loving my new Wink of Stella clear glitter pen, its my first, and I love the subtle shine without texture that I can add to any design I want. Beautiful!!!

Polka dot birthday cards




These are some gorgeous backgrounds created with my MISTI and Papertrey Ink Polka Dot Background stamps. I am loving this set again. Supe-dee-duper easy to line up and stamp (and stamp again if needed) with the MISTI!!! Yahoo!


Goodness, I made these a month ago or more, so I am guessing at the colors now. I believe this is SU! Calypso Coral. On all three of these cards I added some SU! Petite Petals, ribbon and lace. The sentiments are from Papertrey Ink. 


This I believe to be stamped in SU! Coastal Cabana.


And finally SU! So Saffron. The smaller the background polka dots got the harder it was to get them perfectly lined up and repeated for a full background of polka dots, but this is still WAY better than what I could have managed stamping them with a block.

Thanks for the visit. Sorry for the long delay between posts.

Paper stack cards



I saw this paper-centric card design on Operation Write Homes Facebook page and new that these gorgeous Basic Gray papers I have been hoarding would look lovely showcased this way.



And is my nature, I could not just make one while I was cutting into this paper pack.


I have lost track of what paper pack these designs were from. But it was all one paper stack.


I would be hard pressed to pick a favorite of these simple cards. It's wonderful when beautiful paper makes the card come together so easy.
