TSSCHappy Monday everyone!  Can you believe it!  It’s the LAST Monday in May so the NEW SU CATALOG is RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER!!!  YIPPEE!!!  Since this has been my feature set for this month I thought I’d use it one more time!

The base of the card is Rich Razzleberry.  I took the Razzleberry print from the Floral District pack and added to the card base.  I took another print from that pack, added scallop edges in Daffodil Delight and added to the card base.  Next up, I took a piece of Whisper White, stamped the fun bike using Rich Razzleberry and Baja Breeze, layered the Baja print on the bottom, layered onto Baja Breeze then to the card front using dimesionals.  I added the Daffodil print (same pack), cut into a banner and a piece of Rich Razzleberry Stitched Grosgrain  ribbon.  finally I added some Rhinestone to the bike wheels and in the Baja section.

TSSC2565So that’s my card and you can see…I more or less followed the sketch!  Why not join the fun?  We’d love to have you play along!  Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!

SUOIt’s time for another SUO challenge!  Can you believe that we are getting to the end of May, which is the end of the current SU catalog?  I know…hard to believe!  But I am SOOOO ready for NEW stuff!  I {heart} NEW STUFF!!!  But the SUO challenge is to say goodbye to a favorite retiring set.

I REALLY like the Ronald McDonald House Charity set this year and didn’t use it new enough!  I’ve been featuring it this month because I just think it’s one of those ‘must have’ sets!  So today for the challenge I decided to use it along with my three favorite prints from the International Bazaar dsp pack!

The base of the card is Pool Party.  I too a piece of Whisper White, ran it through the Clouds embossing folder (oh I can NOT believe this didn’t make it into the catalog!), layered onto Pacific Point.  Next I cut three banners from the prints, added to the panel, wrapped some Calypso Coral Baker’s Twine around it and added the panel to the card front.  I stamped the image using Pacific point and Pool Party on Whisper white, cut out using the Labels Framelit and added to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the blimp one more time using Calypso Coral, cut out and added using dimensionals.

So…check out the other retiring sets that the design team is featuring for the SUO challenge and join the fun!

RMHCI am going to miss this delightful Ronald McDonald House Charity set!  I think it is one of the CUTEST ones we ever had!  I decided to pair it up with the This and That Washi Tape.  This is a card we did as a make and take at a workshop in April.

The base of the card is Crumb Cake.  I took a piece of Whisper White, layered onto Calypso Coral then added to the card front.  Next I added strips of each of the three different This and That Washi Tapes…LOVE ‘EM!!!!  I inked the bike using Calypso Coral and Basic Grey markers then the little flowers are Calypso Coral and Crumb Cake, punched with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch.  This is added to a Basic Grey large scallop from the Pennant Die then added to the card front using dimensionals.

So don’t miss your opportunity to get this fun set!  I’ll be featuring it this month as it really is a favorite of mine!

I often find when I go through a new paper pack that there are a couple of prints that just seem to ‘talk to me’.  That’s the case in the Summer Smooches pack…I just LOVE these prints together…so bright and happy!  This is just a fun print.  The base of the card is Daffodil Delight.  I took the fun yellow/blue print and cut out two using the Apothecary Accents framelits.  I punched out two bitty flowers in Island Indigo and added to the framelits using Daffodil Delight brads in the center.  I sponged the edges using Island Indigo then added to the card front.  Next I added the blue print strip.  I stamped the bike using Island Indigo on Whisper White, added the flowers in Daffodil Delight and Lucky Limeade.  I layered this on Daffodil Delight and Island Indigo then onto the card front using dimensionals.  I finished out the card by adding a Basic Rhinestone to the one flower on the bike.

Well…I told you I REALLY like these three prints and I thought they would be fun for a little boat card!  The base of the card is Pool Party.  Next I added the three prints to a piece of Whisper White, ran a strip of Island Indigo through the Woodgrain Embossing Folder, added it to the Whisper White panel, added a Calypso Coral Printed Brad, then added this panel to the card base.  I punched out a Calypso Coral 1 3/4″ Scallop Circle and added a 1 3/8″ Whisper White circle to the center.  This is added to the card front using dimensionals.  I did the boat in Island Indigo, Calypso Coral and Pool Party, cut out and added using dimensionals.  I used the small scallop framelit on Pool Party (well the ‘negative’ part of the scallop), stamped the greeting in Island Indigo and added to the boat.
