Sitting Here!




Here is another one of the preview sets from the SU! 2016-2017 catalog -- Sitting Here.  There are all sorts of items that can decorate the swing -- pillows, potted plants, cat, dog, basket and a bird.  I stamped and watercolored the swing image, pots and pillows, then adhered them to the Brick Wall background.

Feast your eyes on the new SU! In-Colors for 2016-17!  The card base is Dapper Denim and the layer is Emerald Envy; the swirl is cut from Flirty Flamingo with a die from the Swirly Scribbles framelits -- which I can tell that I'm going to love!  I pierced along the swirls to give it some extra texture.

Botanical Builders!



I just got the Botanical Builders/Botanical Blooms bundle and I really like the results!  The large flower with the extra cut lines make the flowers pop.  I needed to mass-produce a bunch of invitations for a church dinner, so this is what I came up with.  It's different from my usual style, but I think that it's punchy and pretty!

Thinlits, thinlits!





This started with a pretty basic image -- a plain teacup.  I didn't want to go cute, I wanted more vintage, so I thought to cut the teacup out of one of my favorite dsp's -- Venetian Romance -- to give the more vintage look.  The Bloomin' Hearts thinlit is also cut from Venetian Romance, but the Pistachio Pudding/Vanilla script pattern.  The flowers were stamped with Pistachio Pudding on Vanill, then fussy cut, the centers painted over with Wink of Stella, then a pearl put in the center of each.  The detail on the cup and the "steam" were also painted over with Wink of Stella.

Spellbinders Fun!





I've had these Spellbinders in my stash for over a year, but never got around to using them.  All I can say is that they are way cool -- perfect for my sometimes fussy, vintage style!  I would like to see what I can do using SU! gold foil.
