Happy Father's Day with So Suzy Stamps

Hi Everybody!
I'm back to share another project using the always amazing So Suzy Stamps!  Father's Day will be here before we know it, so I decided to get a jump on my Dad's Day cards.  Thanks to the perfect stamp that was released this month, Father's Day, they came out awesome!  Let's take a look:

*There are a few members of my family that are father's so I decided to make a couple of different cards.

Here's a closer look at the mustache card:
*I created this card for my dad that has a little more "grown up" feel to it.
*This is a pocket style card that I cut using the Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge (which you can grab HERE)
*To embellish the top, I used some beautiful Black Kraft twine from Timeless Twine.
*This will be so fun to grab a white gel pen and write my message on the back of the insert!



*The font on the stamp is gooooorgeous!!


Now let's look more at the kid style card:
*I cut the little dad figure from the Car Decals Cricut cartridge.
*I used some craft foam for my mat.\
*I added a red sequins heart, and black pearls for the eyes.



*The craft foam added some super fun dimension!!

To Die For Wednesday with Timeless Twine

Hi Everybody!
It's time for To Die For Wednesday with Timeless Twine!  The design team is also highlighting the Oh Snap stamp set, along with any color twine we'd like to use.  So for today, I have a fun graduation project to share!  Mine is for my son who "graduated" preschool, but these projects will work for any age :)  Let's take a look!


First up, I have an invitation.  Gotta let everyone know about the event, right??!!
*I used the Wildcard Cricut cartridge to die cut the graduation cap shape card.
*Adding the tassel using the Lemonade Yellow Twine was totally perfect!




*I used some of the detail stamps from the Oh Snap stamp set on the inside.



And you have to create a keepsake from the special occasion!
*I used my Cricut to die cut this easily assembled picture frame.
*I took the moments captured, smile, and love arrow sentiments from the Oh Snap stamp set to accent the frame.
*I finished it off by adding a twine border with the Lemonade Yellow Twine.
*I also used the Mini Tag Dies 2 set from Jaded Blossom for the sentiment shapes.



*For an extra bit of dimension, I added a little tassel next to the smile sentiment.

Happy Mother's Day with So Suzy Stamps

Hi Everybody!
I'm back to share another project using the always amazing So Suzy Stamps.  Since Mother's Day is next week, I decided to actually get my mom's card done early, yaaay!.  Here's how it turned out:

*First I used took this pre-made center step card base, and added a flower cut, and scalloped rectangle using my Cricut.


*Next, I stamped the Happy Mother's Day sentiment on some off white paper, and hand trimmed around it.
*I also added a purple mat.


*For the finishing touches, I used some Wink of Stella on the flower, and Meadow Skittles along the sides.



Here are the quick links to the So Suzy Stamps supplies I used:
