May Your Christmas Be Merry and Bright


I can't believe it's time for our last Blog Hop for Go to Greece. Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from across the world have been learning, growing, and building our businesses together this year.  The Stampin' Up! year ends September 30, we we've been Going for Greece since October 1, 2017.  Some have earned Greece (not me), some have not (me), but ALL have learned and developed ourselves, our businesses, and our connections around the world.

  The card for this hop was inspired by the Just Add Ink sketch for their challenge this week.  I decided to add my Christmas bulb hanging from some DSP and it almost looks like it belongs there hanging on the tree.  I do wish that your Christmas is Merry, but that's not all.  You have to look on the inside of the card to see what else I'm wishing.  "May Your Christmas Be Merry and Bright." (and also white.)  :)  Maybe I need to add some snowflakes to this card at least for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere.


 Make sure you head over to Just Add Ink Challenge 426 to see the inspiration cards by the design team and other creative entries.

Don't forget to hop along and check out the great projects from Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrators all over the world.

The Seasons Shining Stars

I can't get the song "Diamonds" by Rihanna out of my mind as I work on this card.  I think these stars must be my "diamonds in the sky".  They certainly do sparkle and shine and look like "diamonds in the sky.


 I think my favorite part of this stamp set are these amazing stars (at least for today).  I carried the strands of stars into the card interior to help the sparkle and shine fill the entire card.

Video: September Online Class Featuring Rooted in Nature--week 2

It is time again for another FaceBook LIVE Online Class.  This month we are featuring the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set and other Nature's Poem Suite Products.  This week's card featured some DSP strips and layering of leaves.

I think this sentiment is perfect for so many different card needs.  It could be used for a sympathy card, get well, encouragement, thank you, or any time you just can't find the words to express what's in your heart.

Check out the video here:

Butterfly of Hope


 There are lots of different colored support ribbons to represent support for many different things.  The colors represented by the plethora of different cancer diagnosis makes a colorful rainbow at all cancer events.  The lavender ribbon represents all cancers and is also representative of caregivers who give so much support they definitely deserve a support ribbon of their own.  

Through my own cancer journey Victory in the Valley has been a huge source of support for me.  This card was inspired by an image of a lavender butterfly with support ribbon body I had seen on Victory in the Valley paperwork.  I was inspired b the sketch for the Inspire.Create Challenge and the colors from The Paper Players Color Challenge.  The color I choose to add to this project was Highland Heather to create the support ribbon butterfly.

Witchy Dog for FabFri145

I love how the Toil & Trouble DSP has designs that coordinate so well with each of the character stamps in the Trick or Tweet stamp.  I have been waiting patiently (well, maybe not so patiently) do create a card featuring the witch dog character stamp.  Today is that day!!!  


I used the sketch from FabFri145 as inspiration for this card design.  Initially, I used a piece of the Toil & Trouble DSP with all the different hats as the center paper for this card.  That design was a little overwhelming, so I made some adjustments and used the Basic Black cardstock for the center paper with just a few of the hats fussy cut out and clustered together.  As I was fussy cutting hats, I found myself wishing I had purchased the Cauldron Framelits Dies so I could have used the BigShot to cut out the hats for me.  That is one added benefit to the Cauldrun Framelits Dies--They are made to fit around the images in the Toil & Trouble DSP.  But, I don't have them, so fussy cutting it is.
