SU! SLIDER CARD VIDEO

You can use the SHOOTING STAR stamp set with the SLIDER CARD Thinlets. We created these kinds of cards years ago but they weren't as easy as they are now.  And, we used pennies.  Remember?

Watch below.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANGELA AND A FEW OTHER CELEBRATIONS

I want to wish my lovely sister in law Angela a very happy birthday!  Today is her day. This is the card I made for her. Note that the balloons on the card were punched out with the SU! balloon punch!
I also stamped her envelope and then while I was at it, I stamped the envelopes for a coworkers birthday card (Bonnie) and a congratulations card for a medical colleague who was promoted big time to chief!
The watercolor look is really "in" and you can paint it or stamp it!  So cool! Below is her card which she loved.


The card I created for Melissa is a cased card from Connie Heisey who sent me a similar one when I promoted within the SU! family.  This card is so pretty up close with the glimmer and was perfect for a congratulatory card.

SERENE SCENERY - DO NOT MISS THIS PAPER STACK IN THE MAIN SU! CATALOG

This is a MUST HAVE, DON'T MISS item in the main SU! catalog.  This is absolutely gorgeous paper.  I will be creating so many cool things with this paper of cardstock quality that is SU!. The imagery is just beautiful.

Check it out here





BRAND NEW HOLIDAY SU! GHOULISH GRUNGE MEETS JAR OF HAUNTS

As a SU! demonstrator I was able to preorder from the NEW SU! HOLIDAY CATALOG. OMG!  Yes! OMG! it's an awesome catty!  I love just about everything in it!  First up on my order was GHOULISH GRUNGE - a great background and addition stamp that will compliment any craft project or card any season.  I used the cobweb, but wait til you see what else is included in the stamp set.  It will be available on Sept. 1 and I promise you that you will want it.  Also...I had to have JAR OF HAUNTS.  This stamp set compliments that JAR OF LOVE stamp set bundle. I don't have that bundle yet, but guess who has it on their next order?  Yes, you guessed it!  ME!
So I used non-traditional Halloween colors for this card - well, sort of...cherry cobbler and real red made excellent colors for blood.  This jar is so cool!
This was for a swap I was in with the REMARKABLE STAMPERS.  I didn't put the face on all of the jars as I came up with that after I made and sent the swap.  But I really like it. What do you think? And isn't the little spider adorable?  He comes in the set also, and you can place him wherever you would like.  The rhinestone was colored with a red sharpie!  So cool!
So Halloween is about 2 months away. Get your products ready for crafting this Fall and for Halloween. It will be here before you know it!

SU! THOUGHTFUL BRANCHES STAMP SET AND COORDINATING FRAMELITS WHILE SUPPLIES LAST TIL 8/31

I posted in the blog tour the other day that I wasn't even going to purchase this bundle from SU! but then I saw all of the amazing things done with it and all of the great uses it has. This will work for any season and any reason.  I have already made about 10 cards or so with this bundle and I only have this set for a week so far.  Get yours soon while supplies last.

We sent this card to my dad who is recovering from surgery.  At each leaf, I signed one of our names, Maria, Bill, JP and Luigi.  The other leaf had the date.  And look at the envelope below.  The trees are so beautiful.  And I love the birds!

The "hope" is a die cut from the SUNSHINE WISHES bundle by SU! that is in the main catalog.

This is definitely now one of my all time favorite bundles.  There are so many great projects you can make with this bundle. Search Pinterest for more great ideas.

REMARKABLE BLOG TOUR AUGUST

I am absolutely crazy IN LOVE with the SU! EXCLUSIVE stamp set THOUGHTFUL BRANCHES.  Quite honestly - I wasn't going to purchase it at first because I thought it was a set that I couldn't use after August.  Boy oh Boy was I wrong!  This is a set with FOREVER POSSIBILITIES.  I'm so happy with this bundle.  I think I will be using it for days, if not years to come.  I purchased it for me and am so happy that I did before it is sold out forever.  It is available exclusively and TIME LIMITED from SU! Many on the blog tour will feature it, but some will have other new SU! ideas and samples for you.  Enjoy mine and watch for more ideas using THOUGHTFUL BRANCHES to come from me. And...check out PINTEREST for my folder on this set and for more ideas using this fabulous set.

ELVIS PRESLEY - IN REMEMBRANCE!

I created some Elvis cards for friends and family to commemorate the passing of Elvis Presley on 8/16/77.  He is certainly a legend who accomplished amazing things.  He's a favorite of my mother who grew up in the 50's and even was in an Elvis Presley film.  Happy Anniversary in heaven Elvis!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BILL!

I'd love to share with you the cards we have for my husband Bill!  Happy Birthday!  Also, if you have missed any of my posts the last several weeks (there was a glitch with my subscription service) just head on over to the blog HERE to be updated.
 The first one is from our favorite Pooch - Luigi.
 I love Luigi's stamped footprints!
 This one is from JP!  It's cased but I can't remember from who. 
Some differences but only a few.
I must have forgot to scan my card in, but here is the envelope!
