Card Tutorial

  • Optional: low tack tape for holding dies in place when running them through the SUCE, such as washi tape or, my absolute favorite, "Spellbinders - Best Ever Craft Tape" (yes, that is what it is named; it can be found from various online shops)

SUCE (noun, homophone) / soo-kee): the abbrevivated, short-hand name for the Stampin' Up! Cut and Emboss machine. The term SUCE was invented by Barry and Jay of Mitosu Crafts (check out their amazing YouTube videos); the term SUCE was inspired by their cat named Sukie (also pronounced soo-kee, thus creating the homophone) :-)

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Prepare Your Cardstock: cut/trim/score all paper as described above

  2. Stamp two flower and leaves clusters in Memento Tuxedo Black ink

  3. On the first flower clusters, stamp the filler stamp for the both the large flowers and small flowers in Daffodil Delight ink

  4. On the first flower cluster, ink the filler stamps for the leaves in Soft Succulent ink; lightly stamp off the ink on scrap paper then stamp the leaves (second generation stamping)

  5. On the second flower cluster, stamp the filler stamp for the both the large flowers and small flowers in Pale Papaya ink

  6. On the second flower cluster, ink the filler stamps for the leaves in Soft Succulent ink and stamp the leaves (first generation stamping)

  7. Die cut both flowers

  8. Die cut Layer #1 Basic White cardstock with the Basic Border Die -- place the die approximately 1" from the bottom of the cardstock (see picture below)

  9. Die cut Layer #3 DSP with the Basic Border Die -- place the die approximately 1" from the bottom of the DSP (see picture below)

  10. Adhere the Basic White die cut border cardstock (Layer #1) to the front of the card base, 1 1/4" from the bottom of the card base

  11. Adhere Layer #2 DSP (yellow) to the front of the card base, positioned directly at the top near the score line / fold

  12. Adere the die cut boder DSP (Panel #3) to the top of the card base, 2 1/4" from the bottom of the card base

  13. Trim several of the leaves off each flower cluster stem to allow the stems to overlap each another (see picture below)

  14. Adhere the Daffodil Delight flowers to the front of the card base, on the right side approximately 1 3/4" from the top of the cardbase

  15. Adhere the Pale Papaya flowers on top of the Daffodil Delight flowers with Stampin' Dimensionals, ensuring the stems overlap each other (see picture below)

  16. Optional Step: add several of the trimmed leaves (from step 13) behind the Pale Papaya flowers in the position you like (optional step)

  17. Stamp the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink to the left of the flowers directly on the card base

  18. Stamp the inside of the card, if desired -- I stamped the stems in Soft Succulent ink and the "dotty flowers" in Pale Papaya ink on both the bottom left and bottom right of the inside of the card base (see photo below)

  19. Adorn the card front with Genial Gems

I WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU

Your Feedback, Thoughts, & Suggestions

It would be great to hear from you on any topic that's on your mind. I do not have to be your primary demonstrator or even one of your usual go-to resources for inspiration, tips, advice, etc., It would be very beneficial if I can hear from you on any crafting-related topic imaginable.

  • What are your favorite types of cards?

  • Do you want to see more fun-folds?

  • Do you want to see more gift packaging?

  • Do you want to see how I use Stampin' Up! supplies for scrapbooking and memory keeping?

  • What are the top 3 things you admire most about your favorite crafters (I'd really love to hear this!!!!).

  • Do you have a love-hate relationship with adhesives?

  • Do your cards stand the test of time or do they tend to fall flat?

Tell me your pain-points and I will help (or assemble of team of crafters who can come together to help). If you're thinking it or struggling with it, it's a given that someone else is facing the same challenge. Let's help everyone.
