Good morning, and welcome to my stop along the SUDSOL Blog Tour this morning! I hope you're enjoying the tour so far!
What is SUDSOL? It stands for Simply Unique Demonstrators Sharing On Line! And, that's it in a nutshell! We do weekly challenges, share business ideas (and the forms!!), class ideas (with instructions!!), and tons of samples!! I would be lost without all these ideas!

My first is a fun frame I made for a great friend! We both live here in Albuquerque, but met at a Stampin' Up! convention a million years ago!! (Hi Lani!):
I started with a sheet of the More Amore Designer Paper--and chose colors to go with that! I used Pool Party for the front "frame" and the letters (cut out using the Big Shot and Typeset Alphabet Dies). The little heart was made using the Big Shot and the Hearts a Flutter framelits. I also embossed it with the Adorning Accents Embossing Strips. I also embossed the two sides of the Pool Party frame, but it's hard to see in the picture!!
One of my favorite items from the Spring Catalog is the Swallowtail Stamp!! I just think it is beautiful! Here's a fun card using it:
The card base is Melon Mambo, followed by a layer of Basic Black. I stamped the Swallowtail in versamark ink directly onto my First Edition Designer Paper, then embossed with Melon Mambo Embossing Powder. I added some accents along the side: first a strip of our new Natural 7/16" Trim Ribbon, then 3 butterflies punched out with the Elegant Butterfly punch. This is the one in the "big" catalog. I stamped three in Basic Black, then three out of Vellum cardstock. I ran those through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder for added texture. I finished them off with 3 tiny pearls each! Fun and pretty!
My last card is super simple!!!
We made this card at my Diva Days in January! My downline has chances to win the honor of attending this special stamp camp! We made three projects, and enjoyed brunch together!
This stamp set is called Feeling Sentimental, and is a Sale-a-bration item--which means you can earn it FREE!! I stamped the phone booth in Black Stazon, and the sentiment using our Classic Real Red ink. The ovals were cut using the Big Shot (what did we ever do without these!!) and the new Ovals Collection Framelits. Easiest way to do this--cut the ovals out, then stamp right through the "hole"!! perfect placement everytime!
I hope you enjoyed my projects!! Don't forget to sign up for your FREE Two Week Trial to SUDSOL!!
