Happy International Rabbit Day!

Saturday, September 27 is International Rabbit Day! I know this because it is the holiday we are sending cards for this month in my Holiday Cards Swap group on Ravelry.  In honor of this obscure holiday, my cards this week feature a cute little bunny and more washi tape.  I can’t get enough of washi tape on cards lately!  This was an easy card, and I’m happy that it includes some products that I haven’t had a chance to use that much yet.


Stampin’ Up Supplies Used:
Whisper White cut and ready card bases
Blackberry Bliss card stock
Crushed Curry card stock
Cajun Craze card stock
Whisper White card stock
Grid Cards

Sparkle Tag

I meant to post this last Monday — oops!  This is the card I made last weekend.  I really wanted to use some of the new washi tape and the scalloped tag topper punch.  Oh, and the new “Good Greetings” stamp set has this stamp Sparkle, which I LOVE!  I couldn’t wait to use it.  So here is the design; it’s simple yet I think it turned out kind of elegant.  Hope you like it!

Fall Colors!

The theme for our September workshop was Fall Colors!  With the cooler weather we’ve been having, it is feeling more and more like fall.  Soon the leaves will be turning all the beautiful, brilliant colors that were featured in this month’s cards:  orange, yellow, gold, green, purple.  This time we played with not only vibrant colors but also some new stamp sets that are in the holiday mini-catalog.  So much fun!

Cards_9.13.14_WorkshopI hope you had as much fun on Saturday as I did!  I’m looking forward to next month’s workshop.  What will our theme be for October?  You’ll have to wait to find out!  :)

Rainy Inspiration

Hi Everyone!  It’s been raining and thunderstorming for the past two days, so we are a little soggy.  This morning I was struggling to come up with a card design, when suddenly I spotted this Sunshine and Sprinkles designer series paper.  It is a retired paper, but the umbrellas really inspired me and I decided to use some of it up.  So here is this week’s card:

Card_09.10.14Now I just have to find a few minutes to write notes in them and send them out!  See you in your mailbox!

Stampin’ Up Supplies Used:
Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP (retired)

Feathered Thoughts

Hello!  School started this week, so I have been super busy with that.  But I finally took a few minutes to make some cards to send this week.  I have been wanting to do more designs with the Four Feathers stamp set, which I am in love with!  The stamps are beautiful AND you can get the stamp set bundled with coordinating dies which cut out the feather shapes.  That is what I did, and I am so excited about being able to put both stamped and cut-out feather shapes on my cards!  So here is this week’s card:

card_08.27.14I love the look of the feathers bundled together at the top with baker’s twine as well as the different purple colors of the feathers.  Hope you do too!

Stampin’ Up Supplies Used:
Four Feathers stamp set
World Map background stamp set
Occasions 4 You sentiment stamp set
Soft Suede card stock
Naturals White card stock
Wisteria Wonder card stock
Perfect Plum card stock
Elegant Eggplant card stock

Monochromatic Monday

Hi Everyone!  Well, I guess am currently enamored with fast and easy single-layer cards, so here is another one that I made to send out this week:
