WSC71: SUO – Friend in Me


I received an order from the new Stampin’ Up! Occasions Mini last week. I loved opening that box.  When I think I about paper crafting, Stampin’ Up! was my ‘first love‘. A coordinated palette, beautiful accessories, wonderful wood mounted stamps.  For old times sake, I thought I’d try my hand at a SU Only card, as many SU demos call it, for the Weekend Sketch Challenge – being hosted by sweet Jenn this week. You can see the sketch by clicking on Jenn’s name. It was fun, but I had to alter it just a tad. Jenn knows I don’t do angles.


The tree stamp is from a new, cute little set called Forest Friend, and the sentiment is from my 24-7 wheel that I ripped apart after seeing this post by Jody. (It was too easy, slap on some cling mount and rock on. Jody’s my hero.) The patterned paper is also from the upcoming mini, and it’s called A Walk in the Park. Accented with the Top Note Die and a few baubles from the Pretties Kit, I pulled this together all while watching the Texas Tech Red Raiders lose their opportunity for a Big 12 Championship last night. 🙁

You can see other fabulous samples from my ‘girl friday’ friends: Beate, Cambria, Charmaine, Laurie, Mary Jo & Sharon. I can’t wait to see which of them went truly off-kilter and stuck with the angled sketch. I’ll be back in an hour or two – I’m putting the finishing touches on another post. I know! 2 in one day – it’s been ions since that’s happened! Stay tuned.

All supplies are Stampin’ Up:

  • Stamps: Forest Friends &  Friendly Words Wheel
  • Cardstock: Basic Grey, Walk in the Park designer paper
  • Ink: Certainly Celery and Basic Grey
  • Accs: Pretties Kit, Grey Taffeta Ribbon, Top Note Die, Dazzling Diamonds, Scalloped Edge Punch
