So Suzy - Maple Line Leaf Pattern Play

Hi Everyone,

I am up on the So Suzy blog today with a set of simple cards I made with that fabulous leaf from the October release!

Those are the stamps I used:

Simple Birthday

 So how did I do them? Lets get started:

Stamped the leaf in the upper corners of my card stock. then I rotated the leaf  about 45 degrees so that the leaf tips fit in between the stamped tips

For the second pattern I rotated the stamp 180 degrees with a little bit of overlap:

And repeated that:

For the third pattern I did what I did with pattern #2, but stamped only once and then rotated the stamp 90 degrees and another 180 degrees. I hope I made this clear....

Lastly I added the sentiments and some embellishments:

By the way - I cut the sentiment stamp apart - if you cut it in a wavy pattern it fits easily together as it was, in case you want to use it that way.

Pattern #2

Hope you liked this! 
Happy Stamping!

Only you would come up with this brilliant way to extend the use of this lovely leaf...just so amazing to see how clever you positioned them to create these gorgeous patterns. Also love the clean lines with pops of color or metallic accents. What a terrific way to make a card set.

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre

Crackerbox Stamps - Sniff You First

   Hi Everybody,  Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. Affiliate links may be used in the links provided below. I made this card with some of the older stamps from  Crackerbox Stamps . It is a very simple card. I stamped the  Emu Adele  and colored it with Copics. Stamped the  sentiment  onto black card stock and heat embossed it in white. I wrapped some string around the card. Mounted the sentiment with foam tape. Lastly I added some splatters. The stamps I used: Emu Adele Sniff you first sentiment   I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting! Happy Stamping! Linking up with: Sisterhood of  Snarky Stampers  - s=snarky
