Terrific Tuesday SUDSOL BLOG TOUR!

Welcome to the MAY edition of the SUDSOL BLOG TOUR! If you've been on the tour before, you know how awesome the demonstrators work is.  If not, you're in for a treat!

If you've arrived from the SUDSOL site, rest assured, you are in the right spot! If you're a demonstrator and took the time to look at some the information on the site, you know what a GREAT deal joining SUDSOL is. If you're not sure about it, you can try it out for two weeks for FREE!  Just click on the link in my left hand sidebar. I can promise you that you won't be disappointed! I joined SUDSOL the week after I became a demonstrator and find the resources invaluable.

OK...so...what you're REALLY here to see are some projects!  Here's my first set of two cards:



For this Blog Tour, I've decided to feature a new set from the Summer Mini called Pretty Postage. It's a set of four darling little stamps that can be used for several occasions. When you purchase the set, be sure to also purchase the matching punch. It layers beautifully with the 1 3/8" square punch. The set is just PERFECT for little 3 x 3 cards that can be attached to gifts. This set could also be given as a hostess gift.

Two more cards:


As you can see, I also used the large floral image from Fabulous Florets, another set in the Summer Mini. I've shown you projects using this set before, here and here. The Fabulous Florets set is on of my favourites out of the mini since it lends itself to both simple and elegant designs. It can be watercoloured or just stamped in a single colour.

My last project uses the same set again, but this time the birthday image was stamped three times and lined up on the right hand side of the card:


I cut a piece of Whisper White to 4 X 5 1/4" and ran just half of it through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder. On the other half, I repeated the Fabulous Floret image. I tied a double loop bow, attached it to the card front and then adhered it to the card base. I added the three "Happy Birthday Image" down the right hand side.

If you'd like to see some of my EXCLUSIVE work, I was a previous featured stamper as well as Design Team member. You can see my gallery HERE.

I hope you've enjoyed my stop on the blog tour. Your next stop on the tour is Jackie Topa.  I haven't seen her projects, but I can assure you that you are in for a treat!
