Freedom card

I saw a card similar to this on Pinterest and decided that I needed to case it.  My card base is Night of Navy, layer 2 is Whisper White embossed with the Stripes folder.  The dsp used for the star is the new dsp packs.  I used both the Brights and Regals pads for the Night of Navy and Real Red.  You will need 4 each of 2 patterns, 1" square and cut in half on the diagonal.  The Stars in the middle are from the stamp set Simply Stars, stamped in white craft ink and embossed with white power and the greeting is from Word of Encouragement stamped in Real Red.  A little brad in the middle and some red ribbon finish the card off.  I love how it turned out.

Best Friend

I wanted to play with some of the items in the new SU Catalog.  This is very simple but I love it.  My base is Whisper White.  The next layer is Elegant Eggplant and embossed with the Fancy Fan embossing folder (pg 191 #127751).  The next layer is Costal Cabana - a new In Color.  The next layer is Whisper White stamped with Stippled Blossoms (pg 69 #126747 clear or #132076).  I used the new In Colors - Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloup and Costal Cabana - for the first stamped image and then the second stamped image for the flowers is Elegant Eggplant.  My greeting is stamped in Strawberry Slush using the Label Love (pg 33 #130622 clear or #130619 wood).  I used the coordinating punch Artisan Label Punch (pg 181 #130920) to cut it out.  I punched another Artisan Label out of Crisp Cantaloupe, cut in half, to layer behind the greeting.

May 2013 pages

These were my pages for my May scrapbook class.  The colors used are now retired since the new SU Catalog is now available.  My card stock colors are Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Regal Rose and So Saffron.  I used the Subtles dsp pack as well.  The scallop borders were cut with the Tasteful Trim die (pg 192 #120893) and the flowers were made with the Fun Flowers Bigz die (pg 192 #121812).  I used embossing folders (pg 191) Perfect Polka Dot (#117335), Fancy Fan (#127751) and Petals-a-Plenty (#116827) to add some texture to the flowers.  Buttons tied with a little ribbon finish off the flowers.  Very simple but the gals loved them.
