A Beautiful Life

Hey everyone! I am back from Leadership Conference and Emma's skating competition in Lowell, Mass but I'm far from being ready to get back to work! LOL!

In addition to all the unpacking and planning I have to get to this week, my computer's hard drive crashed right before I left for Orlando last week. BUT, my good friend Selene and her hubby are the bomb with computers and they fixed it for me over the weekend! Now I'm just getting all my files set up and all the security blah, blah, blah done. I should be ready to roll by tomorrow! Believe me, I have a LOT to share with you about the conference and all the NEW and exciting things that SU! has coming your way!

The card today is one that I made last month for Just Cards class, but I hadn't shared it here with you. Since I had preloaded the photo onto the blog, I can go ahead and show you now even though my computer is still being set up - how cool is that?

I started with a base of Baja Breeze layered with Pacific Point and Whisper White. I used my Big Shot Scallop Die and cut a mask out of printer paper then layered it on the Whisper White cardstock. I sponged all over the opening with Baja Breeze ink and then stamped the flower from A Beautiful Life Stamp Set in Pacific Point ink.

The ribbon accent is the Pacific Point Striped Grosgrain and it's layered with a sentiment from the same stamp set. It's stamped in Pacific Point ink and sponged with Baja Breeze, then popped up on dimensionals. It's a super easy card, but very soft and pretty in real life even with the bright Pacific Point.

Be sure to check back tomorrow - I'll have another project for you and some photos from Leadership conference too!


  1. What a great technique! Love the card.

  2. We certainly can't have one of my sources of inspiration without a computer, now can we?? This is a gorgeous card! I think it was awesome visiting with you while you were here and I'm looking forward to columbus day, when we come and see you! (oh and you cant forget about Hawaii!)
