You will definitely want to take a look at it - you can see it by clicking on this link!

September blog hop - A fall themed card


Welcome to the September Blog Hop with Di's Country Inkers!
 Can you believe that it is fall already?!  Although here in Arizona, it is still "summer" weather - 100 degrees!   Maybe I can better imagine fall with my fall themed blog hop card lol:

I really liked using the designer paper Into the Woods that is in the new Stampin' Up holiday catalog - since it is reversible, it had several designs that were perfect for a fall theme blog hop card.

 The Lovely as a Tree stamp set is a classic and was perfect as well.  

Can you see the Tree Builder punch I also used?

This Into the Woods designer paper had some cute little acorns and leaves on it that I cut out and used as embellishments.  
Be sure to check out more of the fun Stampin' Up items in the new holiday catalog.

Now onto to the next blog hop which is Diana who always has super amazing projects! 


Here is the blog hop list in case you get lost - Thanks for stopping in!

A perfect cardmaking day at Fall Fest 2015

What a fun day I had this weekend at the Arizona stamping event Fall Fest that Diana and Rhonda put on!  We received lots of Stampin' Up cardmaking/stamping items in our bags and even had lunch:

I actually completed all of my projects (except for some fussy cutting and coloring) and took some pictures that I can share with you:

 They collected stuffed animals for a donation:

 There were lots of great cards that other attendees shared of course!  Here are a few photos of some of them:

It was a perfect cardmaking day and the time just flew by!  
Thanks Diana and Rhonda for another wonderful event!!

A meowy birthday card

I made up a belated birthday card for a special girl who just got a ragdoll kitten.  

The Cherry on Top designer series paper stack from Stampin' Up is perfect for making birthday cards!  I used the balloons, cake slice, and cupcake papers.

I cut out two of the cupcakes on the cupcake design paper and embellished them with gold glitter, which is also sprinkled throughout the card - the sequins, cat's collar, candles, and greeting.

I also used the candles paper on the inside of the card:

Since my birthday girl likes Hello, Kitty, she should love her card, don't you think?!

You can order any of these Stampin' Up products in my online store!
