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 p…

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 Stam…

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 c…

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..... https://youtu.be/DxaUEUpqqlo 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 d…

The Final BB...for February....

Welcome to another week of Borderline Buddies! Can you believe it's almost the end of February?  Well, this will be the last BB post for February....can you believe it? I cannot believe we are almost through February...and the temperatures here in NEPA were crazy this past weekend..up to 60 degrees....in February?  Like...what? Well, unfortunately I didn't even get out of the house this weekend...I'm still battling this horrible sinus issue I have been having and I honestly have to say...I AM SICK OF BEING SICK! I either have to get better...or move south!  I don't see any plans of moving south, so I'm going to have to focus on kissing this sickness goodbye! So...let's move onward...and upward...to Canada...where my BFF Leanna has created something fun for this week...check out her blog at: http://stampingwithleanna.com I guess it's my turn now....so...what could I have created for this week?

Somewhere Over the Rainbow......

Somewhere Over The Rainbow.... So if you follow me on you tube, you would have seen these cards, but if not, here is a closer look.  For this one, I just used the Whisper White, Basic Black and Daffodil Delight.  I stamped the sun on an all over background...and then one and cut it out and added dimensionals.
For this one, I added a punch art pot of gold. 
The pot was created with a circle punch along with  word window punch with a little bit of trimming.
I love how this card turned out...... Be sure to order your Over the Rainbow Stamp Set Item # 138770 Over The Rainbow Photopolymer Stamp Set138770Price:$21.00

Just For You Card......

Happy Monday Hope you all had an enjoyable weekend...and it's back to the work week!  Yikes! Where did the weekend go? They go by so quickly...and today they are calling for some high winds in my area....we had a miserable day yesterday...kind of like snow/sleet/freezing rain and overcast....YUCK!  I spent the day in my stampin' space making my day happy.....stamping always makes me happy.... So one of the girls at work, her husband had a heart attack and we are going to collect some money and give to her to help with expenses...and I of course volunteered to make the card..... So when I sat down...I have an vision in what I wanted to create but had a problem finding the right stamp for the saying on the card......so here's what I came up with: I used a retired stamp for the saying.....and Thoughts and Prayers Stamp Set. The DSP is from the Occasions Catalog, Falling in Love Item # 142788
