SUDSOL Catalog Blog Tour

I'm so excited (and nervous) to be a part of the SUDSOL Blog Tour!  I have never been on a blog tour, but this year's catalog is so FABULOUS, I wanted to share some projects.  It's so much fun to be a SU! demonstrator this time of the year, we have so many great products and ideas to share. Whether you enjoy making cards, scrapbook pages, using our MDS, or making gift boxes and special gifts for your friends and family there are ideas a plenty in our New 2014-2015 Catalog and on all our demonstrator blogs.

My theme is the beach!   Here is my card!IMG_3385

I used the stamp sets, Hardwood, Really Good Greetings and Wetlands.  I created the sand and sea with my Aqua Painter, the sun with a punched out circle, and a punced out scallop circle and dauber made the clouds.   Then I stamped my birds, and added a small piece of fish net.  Next I stamped my saying and cut it out with Project Life Cards and Labels Framelits.  Last, I smeared Dazzling Details in a few places on the sand, water and sun using my finger.  Card base is Pool Party and Daffodil Delight.

Next is a card featuring the new In Colors, Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey, Mossy Meadow.IMG_3384The card base is Pool Party, with a layer of Lost Lagoon.   The ribbon is also Lost Lagoon.   I stamped the sea fans on Whisper White using Mossy Meadow then embossed them with the Decorative Dots embossing folder.  I stamped another fan and cut with the 2 1/2" Circle punch, used the embossing folder and popped it up to showcase my shells.  The stamped shell is stamped in Cajun Craze and covered with Crystal Effects. The other shells were found on my favorite beach Honeymoon Island State Park.

My last project is a 3-D miniature of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. The top comes off so you can turn on a battery tealight!IMG_3398

This project was made on a cone I found at a Habitat Rehab store.  I wrapped it in Whisper White and added a black satin ribbon that is also Stampin' Up but retired.  The base is sitting on a 6" cake circle covered in Garden Green paper, so I had a way to attach the fence.  The fence was cut with the Project Life Cards and Labels Framelits. The octagon is made from Crumb Cake and scored every 2" and you will have to put 2 pieces together to have a long enough piece.  

The top is made using  Circle framelits, Spiral Border Punch, Window Sheets and strips of paper.   

Thank you for stopping by and now for the next stop on our tour you'll be visiting Sandy Risi.
