FOR ELLEN - USING SU! PETAL BURST EMBOSSING FOLDER

Lisa Chatterjee taught us this card at our last SU! crafting friends gathering. I love this style card.  I gave it to my friend Ellen for her birthday with some gifts and I included the wine with decoration. I love the SU! PETAL BURST EMBOSSING FOLDER and all the stamps and framelits by SU!
Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder 141493
Price: $7.50
It’s easy to make a great impression! Just place flat cardstock in this embossing folder, run it through the Big Shot, and out comes cardstock with a bold textured design. Textured Impressions Embossing Folders make deep, crisp impressions—great for card fronts and accents.

* 1 folder
* 4-1/2" x 6-3/16" (11.4 x 15.7 cm)
* Use with Big Shot

ITS' AN AVANT GARDEN SALEABRATION CARD

I'm really loving the AVANT GARDEN stamp set. It's just divine.  I receive mine for FREE from SU! for purchasing $50 worth of SU! product.  I love this cute set.  I've already made a few cards using it and the more I see, especially on Pinterest, the more that I want to create with this darling set. For this card, look closely, or click on the card.  I added tiny beads to the centers of the flowers.
Just for fun, I colored this card in with my new SU! watercolor pencils and aquapainter.

REMARKABLE STAMPERS BLOG HOP

While I'm waiting my shipment from SU! with my Valentine's bundle in it, I thought I could use some of my current SU! stash to make some Valentine's cards.  I almost forgot that the BALLOON BUILDERS stamp set by SU! has a heart balloon in it.  And I love the sentiment that comes with the set.. Glimmer paper goes with anything and Valentine's day certainly needs glitz! You really do need to take a look at what you have in your closet and stamp cubbards and start using your stamps and products to the max.  Make sure you return here this week to my blog because I'll be using my Valentine's bundle due to arrive tomorrow, but for now enjoy this card and the next that I will send off to my mom and a friend this week.

Also here is a card using some DSP from the Holidays that is perfect for Valentine's Day.  I used my SUNSHINE WISHES bundle and die cut the LOVE, then added several SU! adhesive backed rhinestones. I will never be able to live without these.



Now onto the next Remarkable Stamper on the Tour is the talented Michele Reynolds.

So today it is messy outside.  Not the big weather event we thought we would get but still not very nice outside. It's a wonderful day to craft, so after a good work out at the gym and some time in the sauna, I'm home creating.
I'm working on thank you cards for the Oncology Center at GBMC. More to come but today I wanted to create using the new SALEABRATION stamp set Avant Garden.  You can earn it for FREE with a qualifying SALEABRATION purchase from SU!  It's a gorgeous set and will come in handy for so many upcoming occasions.

Life may not be the party we had hoped for, but while we're here, we might as well dance. Doesn't that stamp just say it all? The rest can be expressed by the other stamps in this set. You'll love the artistic feel of this set--stamp a colorwash image over a silhouette for color, or add your own color with Watercolor Pencils or ink.

Our clear-mount stamps
* Are made of the same premium rubber as our wood-mount stamps.
* Have deeply etched images so you get a superior stamped impression each time.
* Are precut so you don't have to trim.
* Are repositionable; temporarily mount them on clear blocks for stamping, then remove them for storage.
* Save space—you need only one set of blocks for all your clear-mount stamps (blocks sold separately).
* Come packaged in cases with images on the spine for easy storage and quick reference.

Quantity: 13 rubber stamps
Suggested clear blocks (sold separately): a, b, c, d

this set also comes as a wood mount set
