Another boho background card

I'm loving this set (bojo backgrounds) and it works so well with all kinds of circle type punches! Here I used chocholate chip and groovy guava stamp pads, and I think the paper is bayou blue and sage, not sure though but I don't want to get up and look (sorry!) Oh yeah, and naturals CS. I also used copper hardware and thread for the clasp and again, the groovy guave DSP. ~ Carolyn

Here is Becky's anniversary card from me, I haven't sent it yet, but i'm sure she won't mind if I show you guys. I used Boho backgrounds, Groovy Guava DSP, naturals CS, mellow moss CS, Pretties kit embelishments, Guava ribbon and twill tape stamped, it is kind of like the card in the catalog (becky and I both fell in love with it), just used a different set and background paper.~Carolyn

Stamp Camp Cards

Here are some cards Becky and I made for our last stamp camp (5 cards and a 3x3) ~Carolyn A couple you may recognize from Regionals (changed slightly)
Used flower fusion on this one, Turquoise Designer series paper on the bird one
Acetate paper on the Guava DSP one with white rubons from behind, stamped with white stays on (suppose to be like a shadow box, dimentionals under the corners, acetate and frame stands off of the card.

Color Combo #2

After seeing Renee's awesome card with Heartfelt Thanks, I had to grab the set and play a little. This card may look familiar to many of you that went to convention in '05 (was it 2005?). We received this set for free and it's the best set ever if you want to watercolor. I copied a few of those elements to create Carmen's color combo for the month. Very fun! How long has it been since I've torn or crumpled cardstock? A long time! OR when was the last time I used vellum? It was fun to get back to some old faves! Sera

Happy Memorial Day!

This card screams summer! It's Renee's awesome creation from our stamp event last week. Everything coordinates together so perfect! Our stamping friends enjoyed making this card and it was clear to me after receiving it that I need to dust off my Heartfelt Thanks stamp set that is for sure! Hope you all had a nice long weekend and were able to get some stamping in! Sera

Color Combo #1

And it's not May 31st! Look how ahead of the game we are! Hey miss sistas! This card was made with the fab colors in the combo and the set Live your Dream. This set is in the Occasions Mini Catalog of course. Many of us have been oogling over this set for a long time. I also used the photo corner punch and a brad in the corner for the perfect touch. Enjoy! Let's see more color combos sistas! Carmen

Wow Wednesday

Carmen, Carmen, Carmen. Look at all of these cute things she made with our SU! product! She has been busy with a few expos as of late and here are some awesome creations that she shared with us this past weekend. Heidi noticed that there was real chocolate inside and we took a bite out of the bars and them stuck them back in these cute stamped wrappers- hee hee! Leave it to Carms to find all of these great matching pens and post-its! LOVE IT! Sera Oh- Happy Wedding Anniversary Angie & Jeff and Becky and Bob!

She's All That!

This is Nicolle's awesome creation! In her craziest month ever she put together this awesome card using all sorts of sets and embellishments from the Occasions Mini Catalog! It is so AWESOME! Click to the left (scroll down a bit) to take a peek! We had an event this weekend and this was one of the cards that everyone made and sure was a hit, right down to the Summer Picnic DSP- which you all know is my fave (today at least). Thank you sista for this awesome card! Sera

Carousel Notes

I was working with these awesome creations and having a hard time coming up with anything spectacular- until I found these pictures from regional- they are awesome. Part of the fun is how challenging they are to work with. They are unique. I'll have to share my creations once I'm happy with the final result. Even if I throw the notes out, the envelopes are chocolate chip and they are AWESOME! I could just slather all over those if I had too! Hee Hee! Sera

A few more Tangy Tarts!

I know, you were wondering when I was going to post the next Tart and Tangy cards. These are both copies from regionals. In fact the strawberry one may even be the regional card- my version isn't that cute! I don't have names attached to these ideas- but I certainly loved copying them! Thanks to that great stamper!
I've been having an awesome time with this set. Two of the sistas have recently purchased this set as well! I hope these cards help with some great workshop ideas for you! Sera

Happy Mothers Day

I woke up this morning and was given the honor of receiving this card from my daughter. She made it over a month ago, sealed it and made me promise not to open it until today. I just had to share :) I love it that she loves to stamp with me. This next card is what I made for my moms. Rose Red base with some Bali Breeze DSP. Add a few pretties colored with markers and aquapainted, a fusion flower, a rhinestone brad and a retired Mother's Day greeting finish it off. I'm off to eat lunch with family - hope you all have a wonderful Mother's Day! ~Heidi

OMC ends today!

These two awesome cards are a great way to end Occasions Mini Catalog week. The Groovy Guava card is Carmen's with the Live your Dream set. The Old Olive card is Becky's with the set Bloomin' Beautiful! Similar styles in cards actually. Thanks to everyone who submitted cards and to the sistas that didn't and I just used your card, tee hee. I've gotten into a pretty good habit of posting almost every day so I'll try and keep that up. Remember- even though the week is up, we still have one more month with these awesome sets so keep sharing them whenever you like! I will too! Sera

More sista bragging rights!

And the card above is Kristine's creation with the In the Stars set. Aren't they awesome? We are winding down this awesome Occasions Mini Catalog week, (just two more days) which was really three weeks... but never fear- we have all sorts of things to share in the days to come! Sera

Braggin' about the sistas!

Since SU! decided to carry the new mini catalog through June 30th- I had to add some cards and continue with our Occasions Mini Catalog week through this week! Some of you have seen these cards in our swap/retreat from weeks ago, but the sistas didn't blog their creations so I had to give them some "props" as well as share them with all of you! The top one is Becky's creation with Bloomin' Beautiful. The other is Angie's awesome card using the carousel notes and the DSP, Afternoon tea. I've got some talented friends, do I not? In fact, I have a great idea that has been all over the blogs using those carousel notes- I need to try it and blog it. Sounds like a great weekend project! Happy May Day! Sera
