Center Step card....wedding or anniversary

I would love to say that I came up with this but that is not the case...lol....I do a WOW swap at convention with Joann Cristo (a wonderful Canadian) and love this swap....it is great when you have some seasoned stampers who are looking for new ideas....It was perfect, so just made it current...used the sweetheart punch and candy dots....there is suppose to be two instead of one...the little bugger was lost and didn't notice when taking the picture....sorry about that....to make it current with this catalog you could make the tie a bow tie.....just cut out two triangles and glue, used the other dot embossing folder and our new black and white DSP coming in the new catalog...thanks SU...love the black and white paper....Joann used the petite pairs for the mr and mrs...I just chose anniversary...usually need more cards for that....
this is a closeup....image the other candy dot..perfect....lol
this is a close up of the dress..I took the card apart to figure out how it was made...

the silver for the belt and tag really pop that card...
Here are the visuals for the dress...you can fold the skirt either way...depending where you want the fold...left or right..
next fold...
fold the tip under....I glued it to itself...

this is the sample pattern I created...for the bodice...the long triangle area at the bottom is glued to the piece above ....and then the silver ribbon and glitter flower with rhinestone is added...the whole dress is popped.....
you can make this one size and when you put it on the sweetheart punch you match the tip and trim the excess....

Butterfly Basics

I cased one of the cards from Monika's meeting in Woodstock last month....just love the soft sky and blackberry bliss together...
 used versamark, silver embossing powder and silver foil paper...

use the silver vellum paper and cut it out for the silver heart to show above the butterfly...a rhinestone is added on top on the heart....the vellum gives it a soft look...LaRee's card from the meeting...have to case a gorgeous card...lol

Bow Builder Man's shirt

Just love the way this turned out...my upline a few times over did a card similar to this....just changed it up a little...thanks so much Linda Bauwin.....used the Argyle folder for the print...and the DSP that is retiring .....
The trick to this card is to use the tree punch to punch the two openings in the vest...just make sure that you line them up equally.....a scrap of white is used under the bow....

 Don't you just love love love those candy dots....use them a great deal!!

Painted Petals stamp set and Painted Blooms DSP easel card


Love Love Love this easel card....so easy and effective as a fun fold...you make your regular card base and cut in one and half inches from each side...glue those two sides down and viola....wonderful!!  Easy Peasy...lol...
Used the wide oval punch and the the chevron embossing folder for the vase...and the candy dots...that is one of my favorites .....
This shows the middle area as the easel....you take you middle card base and score at 2 1/8....

you can see how it stands below....

Irrestible DSP with Something Lacy

The pictures don't do this card justice....used the kissing technique...which also acted as a resist technique....will be using this idea with our new resist paper...can't wait...you stamp the large design on top and then wipe off with a paper towel...this is done in pink pirouette....have to try it with darker colors....lol

used  Lovely Amazing you...great set....
and the butterfly edgelits and the set Butterfly edgelits...these two are carried over to the new catalog..and they added a wonderful watercolor butterfly set and  another butterfly edgelit love SU!!
