More Plaids.....more wipes!


More Plaids....more wipes please!
 
 
Well...did you think I was done with my plaid technique?
 
What am I talking about?  Be sure to check back to yesterday's blog post and watch my video and you'll be all caught up.
 
I had so much fun creating some green plaids that I thought...hmmmm...let's add a few more colors...
 
and here's what I got...It's Mr. & Mrs. Bear.....
 
They are all decked out for a party....with their coordinating outfits of course.
 
 
The ribbon I used is the FREE Sale-A-Bration Ribbon....Item # 143601..It is a 3/8" metallic ribbon combo pack.....white ribbon woven with shiny silver accents and a vanilla ribbon woven with shiny gold accents...you get 2 rolls....with 7 yards of each...of 2 colors...I don't know about you, but I love ribbon.....and making bows.....love that too!

 
I think this couple needed a little more sparkle...so I added the Clear Wink of Stella to the hat, bows and little tu-tu....making them shine and glisten...and ready to party!

 
So be sure to check out yesterday's post...for my you tube video...or heck..just click below

Baby Wipes + Reinkers = Plaid


Helllllloooooo Weekend....what a week it's been....how about you?
 
Any plans for your weekend?  As of the time I am writing this...none for me...but you never know...a single woman like myself...might get swept off my feet at any time.....wishful thinking there!  lol
 
Hey...I'm still hopeful.....:-)
 
So....thought I would share a little more of the green with you.....
 
Let's incorporate something old with something new....or something really old and something old...
 
What do you think of when you hear babywipes and reinkers?
 
Bring back any memories to you oldie stampers?
 
Well..what is old...is new again...with a different spin on it this time.
 
I saw this idea and I had to give it a try and create something fun....so I am going to call this technique The Baby Wipe Swipe...lol
 
How fun is the background on this card? 
 
I also used the Bear Hugs Stamp set (item # 139542 W and  #139546 C0 along with the coordinating framelits Item # 140275)
 
 
I also incorporated a Sale-a-Bration Stamp set, Any Occasion Item # 143348 stamp set.

 
I stamped using the Early Espresso ink on the bear and his bow tie/hat and the Celebrate banner with Basic Black.  I love this Any Occasion stamp set...you can make a banner for just about anything!

 
Wondering how I created this plaid background? 
 
Here's a little video I put together showing you how easy it is...all you need is a few baby wipes and our reinker bottles.....let's take a look...shall we?
 
 
 
Have a SUper Stampin' Day!

Remarkable Blog Hop - Sale-A-Bration


Welcome to the Remarkable 
Blog Hop Sale-A-Bration


I'm so excited to be a part of this month's blog hop....the theme for this month is the must have's...the cannot live without....even if they are on back order.....
from the Occasions Spring Catalog and/or the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.

So when I saw this theme, I knew immediately what I had to have the first time I got a glimpse at the Occasions Catalog...I have to say...it was love at first sight....and I had to have them!

Unfortunately attending the On Stage Event in November, 2016, I was hoping I would have won the stamp set....but no worries...it was worth the wait to be able to order from the catalog when demos were able to preorder.....so, what's my pick/s you ask?

Well, they are both posted on the same page in the Occasions Catalog...page 24...

Have you figured it out yet?

It had to be the Beautiful You Stamp Set (item # 143004 W and # 143637 C)
and the Watercolor Pencils Iitem # 141709)

Here's a fun card I came up with using both of my favorites

I'm not sure what the technical type of fold this is..maybe a Dutch fold?


The top flips up and the bottom opens up (like Dutch doors).


I also used one of my favorite papers, Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack (item #141642).
This paper stack is found in our annual catalog and while we are astonished by the scenery of this paper, I went to the other side...and decided to use that on the top and do a splash of the scenery paper on the bottom doors.


The card was stamped with our Basic Black Ink and colored with the fabulous Watercolor Pencils using our Aqua Painters (item # 103954). 


I just love how this card turned out...while it looks difficult it really isn't....it's easy to create but makes quite a statement and I love how it can be displayed by the receiver.

Now...onto the next blog on your journey.....enjoy!

A little of the green.......


 
Special Requests Greatly Appreciated....
 
When do you ever hear that?  Usually when you want a special request, you get a rolling of the eyes...or even a huge heavy sigh....but not here at Stampin' Sue Creates....
 
I welcome special requests....so keep 'em coming!
 
 
So at Friday's class, I was asked.....what about St. Patrick's Day?  Do you have any fun treat holder ideas?  Well, YES...I do!.....and not only did I have a picture of my creation...I did a video!
 
Yup.....a visual for those of you (like me)...that not only want to read about it..want to see it!
 
So..head on over to my you tube channel...Stampin' Sue Creates
and check out this fun video of this little treat holder...it's so cute.....
 
 
 
Here's a few pictures...I love it!
 
 
Take some trash and make it into treasure....
Those little gold chocolate coins would be perfect for the inside...or even those caramel candies....you know the ones...with the gold wrappers....they are so delish!  yum!

 
So....watch the video and then go make some!
 
They are great to give to coworkers, friends, neighbors or just anyone celebrating St. Patrick's Day!
 
Fun...huh?
 
Thanks for stopping by!
 
Have a SUper Stampin' Day!
