Winter Woods for What’s New at SU!

Did you know there is a new Holiday Catalog coming out September 5th? I bet you have already seen some peeks of the amazing products. So many wonderful new stamps, paper, and embellishments.

Today the What’s New at SU Team is hoping along and sharing some of the new products with you. Make sure you click on the links at the bottom of the page to follow along on with the hop. It will make it hard to wait until September 5th to place your order!

I chose to showcase a Christmas set titled: Winter Woods. These trees are lovely and can be used in many ways. Nobody does trees like Stampin’ Up does.

My first card uses the Winter Woods large pine/fir tree die as well as the die cuts for the leafless trees.

I added a church from the Hometown Greeting Edgelits. A tip: Slide a little bit of card stock behind the doors and windows to make it look like the lights are turned on.

The second card highlights the stand of trees. I heat embossed them in white on Night of Navy card stock. The contrast of navy, white and silver is always one of my favorite combinations.

Lastly, I wanted to share a card that is not Christmas. I used the die cuts to create a sympathy card.

I used the new Embossing Mats turn the dies into embossing dies.  

Have you tried them yet? They really are cool and help you stretch your tools and supplies.

Thanks  for taking the time to stop by today. Hop on to Tricia and see the Spooky Fun she has to share.

Adventure Awaits for Freshly Made Sketches #347

Joining in on a Freshly Made Sketches Challenge with a card using Lilypad Lake. I am posting today just by the skin of my teeth. I have gotten behind on post challenges for some reason. Life does seem to be busy this summer.

This sketch uses two elements and of course you can use the exact shapes or change them up. I chose to stick to the shapes presented.

I need a retirement card for someone who is looking forward to lots of traveling in the future. I tend to go with bright and cherry cards and I thought the cute sail boats from LilyPad Lake would be nice and colorful.

The sun and the water have Wink of Stella to give the card some sparkly shine. Love this simple card so much I made two!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Fabulous Flamingo for TGIFC#165

Hello Stampers!

How about a bright and cheery card today? This card has some of my favorite colors. I do tend to like bright, strong colors. I struggle with dark, neutral colors.

The TGIF Crew posted a really bright color challenge this week…just perfect for me.

 

Here is my card: Fabulous Flamingo for TGIFC#165

Look at all these bright colors! I was inspired by the picture as well as all the cards created by the TGIFC Team. Make sure you check out all their cards. You can see them by clicking HERE.

I layered three colors on the front of this card to make it extra bright. Just pulling in the colors by using them as a border makes your card more interesting. I then pulled the Coastal Cabana water from the base of the card by using the Glitter Dots.  These dots draw your eye up and make you travel around the card. Wink of Stella on the flamingo make her nice and shiny. Bling makes every card better doesn’t it?

These Glitter Enamel Dots are great for a card that is going through the mail. That are very flat and (hopefully) won’t get crushed by the postal machine.

This card was so bright and sparkly I decided to use the sentiment “You Dazzle Me” from Pocketful of Sunshine.  Perfect match up from 2 stamp sets. Love it when that happens.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Happy Stamping!
