Stampin' Up! Marquee Message Card, Paper Piecing Technique, A Little FOxy DSP, Susan Itell - stampinup


Happy “HUMP DAY” I know that this subject line was a bit different but I must say, whenever I look at this Stamp Set, Marquee Messages I think of Las Vegas and all of the old “glitz” from signs!

This is just one fun stamp set! I had a ball making this card as it is fun to stamp the images and paper piece them together to create something really special!

Let’s back up….I try to “teach” you with my posts as I realize that we are all at different levels and you might be saying….what the heck is paper piecing?

Below you will see the stamp set. (super cute) 🙂  If you Stamp the desired images onto whatever color of paper you are going for….just stamp and then cut away….lastly “piece” it back together! I like to use the green glue so I can wiggle them right into place.

This is paper piecing! SUPER EASY yet SUPER REWARDING as when you see the finished project, you are amazed at how it all came together in a jif! I encourage you to take a look at your stamp sets and you will be amazed at how many you have that you could do this technique with!

How about this fun and cheerful DSP!?! It is from the A little Foxy pack and it certainly makes a POP STATEMENT. Just have fun playing around with the paper you have and take the colors from there!

I thought that the Bermuda Bay and the Pool Party complimented one another an because I used Black Ink to do my stamping, I thought that the super thin mat of black would do the trick on the Pool Party rectangle!

I know that it is super hard to see in the photo (but try to click on it to make it larger) and you will see that I score at 1/4″ intervals all the way down the white mat. When you see it in person, it looks super-de-duper!


A Little Foxy DSP

You know me….a “naked” envelope does not settle well with me. True, it takes a bit more time but I do think that the end result is well worth the extra time. If you cut these 6 x 6 papers into 2″ x 6″ pieces you can get (3) envelopes per sheet of paper. The thin strip is just 1/4″ wide – works like a charm!

Guess what I did yesterday morning? Guess what I am going to do this morning?

I am going to the movies from home – I was able to see a sneak preview of the NEW Holiday Catalog and I was doing the HAPPY DANCE WHEN I SAW the little bit that I did….The bundle that I saw was just the cutest and the best thing – it will work for Fall/Halloween and then for Christmas.

As demonstrators we can pre-order next Tuesday and my fingers are crossed that this little guy will be available!  As soon as I can order the new catalogs I will and if you have placed and order with me in the past 6 months, I will mail you a catalog. If you are not currently working with a SUD, I would love to help you, please reach out to me and I will be happy to send a catalog your way.

Enjoy the day…stay cool….please look after those that might need help and remember to keep your animals out of this heat. Speaking of animals, please keep my dear Arnold (the horse ~ well actually he is a boarders horse) but he is my sweet old man (31 years old) …..he has terrible feet and he is so uncomfortable right now. I am soaking his foot in warm water several times a day for an abscess – I hope he can get some relief as he owes this world nothing! Such a sweet boy.
