I created this card awhile back – I really like that retired SU! paper. I often create cards to showcase pretty paper, and this is a layout that does just that.

And of course, like my last post, I coordinated the card and envelope, by adding a liner to the envelope, using another paper from the DSP (Designer Series Paper) pack. I used a retired envelope liner die, but you could easily make one yourself. I used to do it All.The.Time!

This is going out to my son, far away at college. I want him to embrace this time in his life and have fun.

Make it personal

Whenever I send a card, or note – I always try to personalize it. I want the recipient to know I put some thought in to what I’m sending. One of my favorite ways to do that, is to personalize the envelope as well. I usually try to use the same stamp on the outside as one of the ones on the card/note. I feel like when the envelope has a tad of excitement or intrigue, the recipient looks forward to opening it. It only take a second or two to add a little something to your envelopes.

Free is AMAZING!

Two items from this card were FREE! I instantly fell in love with the Amazing You stamp set and coordinating Celebrate You Thinlits dies in the 2018 SAB (Sale-a-Bration) catalog! I was thrilled that this year SU! offered dies. For $100 in ordered product, I got this die set for free, and for another $50 in ordered product, I got the coordinating stamp set, Amazing You, for free.

I tried a super simple background by sponging 4 different ink colors onto Whisper White card stock using the Sponge Brayers. That’s all I did, and I quite like the effect. The color combinations are endless.

Oh boy, I’ve got the flu, so unfortunately yesterday I just couldn’t get this blog post ready in time. So sorry!

Anyway, here is a card, using several items from the new Occasions Catalog. The Petal Palette stamp set, coordinating dies, and gorgeous designer series paper, were very first on my list! Here is a video on the entire suite.

I added some washi tape and linen thread to this very easy card.

I’m sorry about that – I hit “publish” rather than preview…that’s a first!

Anyway, here is the quick anniversary card I made this year. My husband loves cardinals so this seemed to make him happy 🙂

Hi Everyone! I know it’s been so long since I’ve posted anything I’ve created. I made a ton of cards for Christmas, and didn’t photograph any of them. There were 90! My husband was in China & Japan for 2 weeks before Christmas and it made things a bit harder than usual around here. When he got back, together we created the labels, signed the cards, and did all the things necessary to get them OUT! We were on a roll, and it was late at night when we finished, so I didn’t take any photos. Bummer. And I’ve made stuff prior to Christmas, just haven’t posted them, either. So I decided to make sure to put this card on my blog.

It’s from the Lots of Happy card kit, which will be in the upcoming 2018 Occasions Catalog. It’s adorable! I fell in love with it right away. Well, let’s be honest, there is a LOT to love about that new catalog. It includes 4 of the pretty watercolor pencils – 2 of which are exclusive to the kit – Lemon Lime Twist & Flirty Flamingo. And I love that SU! offers refills to this kit as well. The Occasions Catalog will be available online, and for ordering, on 1/3/18.

OH! here’s a tip for you. I stamped the flower/leaves image onto the envelope from the kit. But when I colored it with the watercolor pencils, the black ink smeared. It looked awful. So my fix was to stamp again, using Memento ink onto Whisper White card stock, then cut it out around the black lines, then glued it right over the messy one. Worked like a charm. So keep that in mind, if you stamp on the envelope using the Basic Black ink spot that’s included in the kit (or if using a Basic Black ink pad), it.will.smear. I can’t say for sure stamping on the envelope with Memento ink won’t smear when using the pencils, but maybe test it out. I’m not really sure if it’s the ink, envelope, or both. Hope that helps!

I want to wish you all a Happy New Year! Thanks for sticking with me. I hope to post more creations more often. You see, I really enjoy posting to my blog. It’s weird. I’ve thought about letting it go, but I just can’t. I know many have jumped ship, likely due to lack of posts. Things are just different right now, but I still want to post, LOL.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by today!
