CAS-ual Fridays

Playing with some Suzi Blu today!!!  I have to tell you that I have been a little scare of these adorable girls!!!  I don’t really stamp people.  I just realized that.  I think this may actually be the first time I’ve used a little girl on a card ever.  Weird, right?  But the new CAS-ual Fridays challenge really made me want to use my Suzi Blu girl.

The challenge was a 4×9 inch sized card!  If you have ever seen a Suzi Blu girl, you know that the stamps are BIG!  Ha.  I’ve actually had this card in my head for many months now.  It just took this challenge for me to sit down and get it done!  It turned out exactly how I envisioned.  Which is shocking because most of my cards do NOT!

Anyway, I adore her and now that I have faced my fear, you may see some more Suzi Blu girls in the future.

I have a BIG week ahead on the old blog.

Monday: NEW Unity KOM

    I am the same way I don’t usually stamp images of people. This is a unique card though and really interesting because of that. It really caught my eye. She works great as an image in a CAS card so she can stand out. I think the card is terrific!

    Pretty card, Lisa! I love the design and the right edge is so special!

    I’m always intimidated to colour people – I just don’t feel like I’m very good at it! I love how this turned out. The perfect paper ‘ground,’ the gorgeous edging, the sentiment…lovely! And you know what? Most of my stuff doesn’t turn out like I picture it in my head either 🙂

    Oh wow, this is fabulous, love her dress!

  6. Tammy

    This is just too cute! Perfect for a tall card!

  7. Emily Leiphart

    I love this, Lisa! She looks amazing and I love the borders as much as the combined sentiment.

    She’s really fun Lisa! I haven’t used any Suzi Blu stamps yet, but they look fun! Great job, isn’t it fab when they turn out how you imagine them, that doesn’t happen often for me either lol. I’m going to join in this challenge too if I get a minute.

    Beautiful! I love the paper-piecing and how you grounded her on the patterned paper. I’m with you — I rarely stamp people, but I think you should more often!

    I’m glad you faced your fear of the Suzi Blu because this card is AWESOME! The paper piecing is so fab and I love the edging detail. I know what you mean about stamping people…I have 2 S.B. in my drawer that I have yet to ink up. 🙂
