Up in the Air

Preserved just for you

Hi Everyone! I finally got all the running that I could today done! Phew.... So, with that said I am putting my derriere in a chair and sharing a card made with some new goodies from the upcoming SU Holiday Mini Catalog. There is an Uber sweet set called Perfectly Preserved  in the Holiday Mini catalog, and I fell in LOVE! Here is my sample -

This canning jar can be filled with SO many things! :) Today I just kept it simple, and filled it with flowers. I stamped my image on water color paper with Versamark and heat embossed it with white EP. I used my aqua painter and Baja Breeze reinker to add the water, then cut out the embossed and colored image. I placed my cut out onto the card base, then stamped my stems and added the blooms. Added a simple black frame around the blooms, and added the just for you tag. Love it! Off to play some more... Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! Details below -

Birthday Blimp

Hi Everyone! I have another quick post for you today. I had the evening to myself yesterday, and played a little again. When the mojo hits, I am taking full advantage these days. I inked up the set Moving Forward again. I have to say that I REALLY like this set. It was one of those "must have" sets that jumped up and said "Pick me, Pick me!" Well who could say no? Here is my card -

I had the scraps from the previous card on my desk, so I used those papers. :) I stamped my Blimp image in Black, cut it out, then added the little banners in Pool Party. The clouds are hand cut, and I added a little piercing around them for detail, and punched my Sun from the Domestic Goddess DSP. Really Simple and Sweet! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Hi Everyone! I have a quick post for you this morning... I had some more time to play I played with some new sets from the new catalog. :) I was inspired by a card that I found on Case Study to use the new set called Take Care. I really love the branch image, and the sweet nest from this set, so those are the images I used for this card -

I stamped my images with Chocolate Chip, and Lucky Limeade inks, then used my Blender pen to pull a little of the chocolate chip into the white space of the nest. Then cut it out, and added the heart shaped bitty buttons for "eggs". I used my XL bird punch for my love birds, and added the Blessings sentiment to make this a sweet baby card. I guess it could be a house warming card for a newly wed couple too. You decide. :) I love the outcome! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! :) Details Below -

Fast and Fab CC385

Hello Everyone! I have been away for awhile again. Sorry. I have had a really busy bunch of weeks with the kiddos now that summer is in it's dog days, and things were getting tedious with them. So it was Mom to the rescue with a lot of outings, and then getting them ready for Camp! But I am back, and I have a card to share. It just so happens to be Tuesday, so that means a Splitcoast Color Challenge card is in order.. ( Don't want to break with tradition and all..:) Today's colors were Real Red, Island Indigo, and Wisteria Wonder, with a desert option to make it a summer card. I have to say I was a little baffled by this combo. So I decided to keep it really simple, just paper and ink. Here is my card -

I used the set called Fast and Fabulous from last years catalog. I barely used this set when it was current, it always seemed to be on lend to someone. But its all good! I stamped my images in the colors for the challenge then used my blender pen to color them. Really "Fast & Fabulous" if I do say so myself! OK, that's it for me! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! Details below -

Stacked Wishes

Hi Everyone! I do hope you all had a great weekend! Mine was Awesome! My Husband and I were sans the kiddos for the early part of the weekend,... LOVE when that happens! :) I got a chance to do some lurking on Pintrest, and found tons of inspiration!! So that is what I am sharing with you today. I fell in love with a card by Maile Belles, and had to recreate it with SU products.  Here is my version

 I used the set Fabulous Phrases to create my sentiment, and used the top of the cupcake builder punch to make the different colored ice cream scoops. I really liked how it turned out using SU Products. OK, that's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! Details below -
