Set sail

8F1A103C-E4F4-470E-A57D-687A51814565I love this SU! Sailing Home nautical stamp set. Today I left most of the image uncolored, but used pineapple punch for a pop of color.


Simple thank you…

A8A1E78D-78AC-4AAC-890C-FAA0F56350C2I used the Believe You Can hostess set from the new SU! catty for today’s card.  I colored with SU! markers, then framed it with punched flowers using one of the mini punches from the Occasions catty.  Then put different color crystal drops in flower centers.  I spritzed the white card base with same colors I colored flowers.

8FD5958B-FCCB-419B-8489-603369F32EF2The new SU! Sailing Home set was a must have for me!!  Here’s a simple sailboat scene colored using watercolor markers and a water pen.  Wish I were there right now!  Hope you like it!

Inspiring Iris

A4E58EB4-0457-4D8F-918C-42891A842118Irises are one of my faves!  So I had to have this new set called Inspiring Iris from the new SU! catty.  I layered the flowers on Handwritten background stamped in soft sea foam.  Used the stitched rectangles dies to make the frame in a new in-color, Rococco Rose.  It may just be my new favorite pink.  White panel embossed using SU! basket weave embossing folder.  I threw on pretty peacock faceted dots to coordinate with the ribbon peaking out from behind the sentiment.

I am pleased with how it turned out!  Hope you like it!

Sweet seahorse

898A060C-15F8-487A-8D7C-587692452371I’m loving this seahorse from SU! Seaside Notions stamp set (in the brand new catty).  I layered up torn come sail away designer paper (also from new catty).  I embossed the seahorse in white on black cs and threw in a little dazzling diamonds for some sparkle.  I threw on a ribbon, some seaquins and sentiment and called it a day.  Hope you like him!!

Cow’s It Goin’?

I love cows!  So, I grabbed this new SU! set Over the Moon as quickly as I could.  Here’s a very simple card.  I sponged clouds using a fun cloud template and cut Hills out of cardstock.  The stump is from a just retired Hedgehugs stamp set.  Hope you like this card!!  I think it turned out pretty darn cute.  94D58144-5C1B-4B51-BDB6-EAE950E4C456

50 lonnnnggg years

FB49F298-49AE-4E75-8E26-FF8AAFA82225Today’s card is very shabby chic.  I used large numbers framelits, first frost flowers, sentiment from to have and to hold and layered up delightfully detailed laser cut dsp.  Out of the norm for me was embossing.  Years ago I loved to emboss, but got completely away from it.  Well, I have to say I love it again and pulled out all my embossing supplies front and center!!

Anyway…I hope you like this rustic creation!!

Nine lives

Here is another kitty card that will be a part of my next batch going to Rollin Hills Vet Hospital.   I’m loving the new purple posy Stampin’ Up! Color.  The cat is punched in that color and some of the flowers are purple posies.  This ended up being a color combination that I normally wouldn’t create.  I threw in some poppy parade red for a pop of color… 5FF60EE0-ED12-43CA-B1AF-E09E0D65016F

Doggie slobbers

5EFA7F9F-35D2-4DF7-B149-57D489A24FB8I’m throwing it waaayyyy back with today’s card.  This Stampin Up! Loads of Love set is from 2004.  It was one of the first stamp sets I purchased and have used it sooo much over the years.

SU! Has a new truck coming out in the upcoming catalog that goes live on June 4th.  I will have to have it too.  It includes a die set to make a 3-D truck that can haul goodies for real!!!  How fun is that?!?

Today’s cards shows the old truck hauling some slobbering doggies!  This card will be a part of my stash sold at Rolling Hills Vet Hospital in Columbia, Mo.  I’m selling pet sympathy and animal related cards there and they seem to be well-received!  And, I’m loving every minute of the card making!!

Hope you like this very simple card…


DEA9A661-0D50-43B2-BA70-F280194A19C5Today I’m playing with the Stampin’ Up! May Paper Pumpkin kit.  I love all the elements, but am using them to make my own regular sized cards.  Here’s my first one…

I simply layered the card fronts provided and elements onto a very vanilla cardstock base.  Pretty self-explanatory from there…
