We're getting close to the end of the school year (my dd's last day is Monday!), and the weather is finally getting better, so when I woke up today to sunshine and warmish temperatures, I was feeling ready for a great day! What does that include?? Stamping, of course!!
I made a few things, and you'll get to see them over the next few days... but this is the first one. I did this for the CC167 challenge on Splitcoaststampers. I actually really like this color combo, and while it didn't scream Sassy Suzi to me, I took it as a personal challenge because I wanted so badly to use my new set that just arrived yesterday! Can I get a "whoot whoot"??
So here's the card:
Here's what I used:
Sets: Sassy Suzi, Smarty Pants, Priceless (flowers)
Colors: Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Certainly Celery
Other: Paper piercing tool/template, blender pen
If you are interested in knowing any of the inkpad colors I used to color Suzi with, just let me know and I'll elaborate for you on this post.
Well, I hope you're all going to enjoy the weather you're having, wherever you live! Have a great Saturday~

Does anyone know what I am talking about, or am I just a creative freak?? lol

Used some old designer paper (again!) for this one, and the bright pink organdy ribbon we don't sell anymore at SU! (boo! hiss!), but the rest of the stuff is current. Pixie Pink and Pretty in Pink are the feature colors, and of course there's glitter and dimensionals everywhere! I hope you like it, and that you have a great rest of the week, because I am not sure if I'll be able to put anything else up for a few days. I have school snacks to deal with tomorrow, her birthday party tomorrow night, some traveling on Saturday and then her actual birthday is on Sunday, so we're gonna be pretty busy. We'll see though, you never know when I might surprise ya!

Set: Bon Appetit
Colors: Soft Sky, Black White
Other: 2-way glue pen, dazzling diamonds, SU! Markers
To get the curve on the side, I used regular paper snips and freehand cut the curve on the white layer. Then I attached the white layer to the black layer and then freehand cut the black layer to the correct width. Super simple.
Isn't that chef just the cutest thing??

Colors: Cool Caribbean (I MISS that one!!), Gable Green.
There's glitter on the candles, which of course I love, and the big "B" has some piercing on it and is popped up. The size of this card is a regular half-sheet of cardstock that is simply folded the "other" way. I put these cards in a regular business sized envelope, but it just leaves space on the width. Until they make envelopes for this size card, a regular size 10 will have to do. lol
Enjoy your Saturday~

OH, and GET THIS - I had another family project that came up which required me to purchase some media software to transform audio tapes to cds, and so I did some research (aka- asked the engineer/techies at work for their expert opinions) and purchased Easy Media Creator 10. Let me just tell you - I am soooo excited to have this software!!! It's great for not only converting audio and video so you can made cds/dvds out of your tapes/videotapes, but you can make movies from your photos, edit and enhance your photos, and TONS of other things that I have yet to explore! So this first card I'm sharing is actually my first time using this software for photo editing, so I hope it looks okay. I was able to make a watermark, too - which was SUPER exciting for me, too...
Okay, enough rambling, on to the pic:
The words under the cow say "like no udder." So essentially it reads "mother like no udder." I almost put "mudder" instead of "mother" but I don't have a stamp for that. lol
The stamp set is Very Punny from SU!, and the paper is Pretty in Pink cardstock and some old designer paper from SU! as well. Highlighted with black and some flat-sided gems from the local craft store, this card kinda turned out cute if I do say so myself!
I hope you like it, and I'm sorry it took so long for me to post. Thanks for those of you who are continuing to visit me. I will do my best to try and keep things going!
