Get ready to say "ahhhhhh!"  Sandie Conner, one of my Stampin' Pretty Pals, is my guest stamper this week. She combined many beautiful elements into a stunning and cohesive look.  She was generous with her talent and has two cards for us to oogle.

The beautiful mix of textures really stand out in this photo.   Sandie hasn't begun a blog to showcase more of her talent.  However, she was kind enough to share her recipes for both cards.  Thanks, Sandie.  Inquiring minds will want to know!

  1. I would love a link to Sandy’s Blog….Her style is right up my alley.

    The large scallop punch used on Sandie’s card is not sold by Stampin’ Up!

    However, you could use the Fancy Flower XL Punch to create a large scallop border. Here is a tutorial that shows you how to achieve the same look.

    Hugs, M

  3. Both cards are STUNNING!!! Nice work.
    Can I ask about the “large scallop border punch?” Is that an SU product? If so can you please provide the product code? Thanks

  4. I agree with the other comments, Sandie should have a blog, although I know how much work they can be!

    Mary I love your work, your blog is one of a handful I visit regularly and I love, love love your videos. I have a short attention span and a busy life and the quick, snappy ideas that you feature are brilliant! I’ve watched others’ videos and end up having to replay them because after 5 min with my hands not doing anything I get distracted and have to watch it over again. But with yours, it’s done fast and I don’t have time to be distracted!

    I’m so sorry for your recent loss of Mozart, too. I’m a cat owner myself and know how heartbreaking it can be when you lose them. It’s wonderful that you were able to give him a second chance and a long and happy one at that.

  5. That first one’s layout and layers are lovely! I’m enjoying looking! Nice creation, Sandi!!

  6. Goodness Sandi these cards are wonderful. Very nice color combinations and the details are spot on. I do wish you would consider starting your own blog. I would love to see more of your work. Thanks for sharing the design details with us. Mary, thank you for featuring Sandi’s cards on your blog.
    Blessing to both of you.
