08.26.18….. OK, let’s just get right to it, my stamping friends! I know what your thinking. Thanksgiving is still three months away, and she’s already posting a seasonal card! I can explain…..
As a SU demonstrator, I was able to pre-order from the new Stampin’ Up! 2018 Holiday Catalog. (Customer orders can be placed between September 5 – January 2, 2018.) This new catalog is chockful of so many amazing products! That being said, I pre-ordered several items from the Country Lane Suite, which has a country/harvest theme, and I just couldn’t wait to get going on some new Fall projects.
I also couldn’t wait to create a card for the latest Global Design Project (#GDP152 – CASE the Designer), so I decided to incorporate that into my card design as well.

08.18.18….. Welcome to the weekend, my stampin’ friends! I had planned to make this card last month, around the Fourth of July, but I got busy working on other projects and just never got around it. Better late than never, right? While I used a patriotic color combo on this card, it’s a unique birthday card for any time of year!

08.06.18…..Even though it’s still the middle of summer (at least in Northern California), I’m really looking forward to Fall. Not only because the temperatures will be cooler (…yay!!!), but I just love all of the beautiful Autumn colors that nature gives us during that wonderful time of year! That being said, I went a little crazy, and created several cards using the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper. Since I couldn’t decide which card to post, I decided to post them all in a series that I’m calling “Nature Week”. Yes, my stamping friends… because I’ve become obsessed with this gorgeous paper, I will be posting a new card each weekday this week (Monday – Friday). I hope you enjoy them!

08.04.18…..Although I’ve never actually been to a garden party, I’ve always thought it would be such a beautiful way to spend an afternoon! When I hear the phrase “garden party”, I think of roses, bouquets, and everything pink…..and that, my friends, was the inspiration for this card. Once I had my inspiration, I immediately knew that I had to use the “oh-so-colorful” Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper.
