This post was created for SUDSOL's 4th Blog Tour, although the tour is over, I have left my projects for my followers to view.

My first project is one I made for my leadership general swap card:

SUO Stampin' Up! 2011 Occasions Mini Word Play, Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper, Jeannine Tarrio

I wasn't sure I cared for the adornment embellishments when I saw them in the 2011 Occasions Mini. I order a package and when they came I fell in love with them! You really have to hold them to feel/see their beauty. They are the perfect accessory for the Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper.


1. Crumb Cake: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"

2. Rose Red 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"

3. Springtime Vintage Designer series Paper 4" x 4"

4. Always Artichoke 1 1/4" x 4", then punch one long edge with Scallop Trim Border Punch

5. Baja Breeze 3" x 1 3/4" Crumpled

6. Very Vanilla 2 3/4" x 1 1/2" stamped with Always Artichoke and sponged with Crumb Cake

Other Supplies: 1/2" Chantilly Crochet, Adornments, Crystal Effects, Stampin' Dimensionals

When I demonstrated this card recently, Cheryl asked if a Mini Glue Dot would work to attach the adornment instead of Crystal Effects. You could use the Mini Glue Dot if you attached the Adornment directly to the cardstock, however, on this card with the 1/2" Chantilly Crochet between the cardstock and adornment the Crystal Effects really holds better.

Project Two:

The first picture is a Peppermint Patty Basket I made a Leadership Wrapper Swap. each of the 4 peppermint patties have a different stamped top. The top one uses the For you stamp from Sale-a-bration set Punch Bunch. The second uses Elegant Thank You and the third and fourth uses Great Frinds set and Beautiful Wings Embosslit.

The last two projects were created for a Bridal Show I did earlier this month. These are two of the samples I created: a wedding invitation and matching table favor.

The invitation is a gatefold card with a belly band closure. The matching favor was made with Stampin' Up!'s Milk Carton Die, Elegant Lines Embossing Folder, and the Big Shot.
