Happy Labor Day

Hello Stampers! Hope you are having a fun day. I have a cute Summer Days card for you today.

I had to use our retired Sheltering Tree Stamp Set for this card…sometimes we just have to dig into the past sets. 🙂


This is a perfect card to celebrate the last days of summer…with a cold drink and a friend!

Apples for the Teachers

Hello Stampers!  Today I have a quick look at the cards I made for my grandchildren’s teachers. I also made some cute treats for my retired teacher friends when we had our “first day of NOT going to school” brunch.


These are a sneak peek at some new items. I’m loving these new Gathered Leaf Dies…they emboss and cut!  The apple comes from the Harvest Hellos Bundle. Too cute!


I made these treats from the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies…a huge hit! Also used the Come to Gather DSP. Both from the Holiday Catalog.


Only 8 more days and you too can order from the 2019 Holiday Catalog and see it on line. I’ll be posting it on Sept. 4th in my Weekly Newsletter as well as here on my blog. 

Sorry I’m teasing you but these items are just so cute!

Happy Stamping!    Donna

You’re Inspiring

Hello Stampers…hope spring has finally sprung where you live. Here in San Diego we’re still getting rain and that is unreal!

Today I have a lovely card for you to make for almost any occasion. I used the You’re Inspiring stamp set which is retiring as of June 3rd. I love these daffodils and this is a set I will not part with for quite a while.


Of course I had to use Daffodil Delight and it’s the perfect color!  I have been working on my photos and decided to give up on my camera and just use my phone. I can now take photos on my phone and quickly upload them to my computer. I really like the look so much better. 




Stampin’ Up! Products Used:

Stamp Set – You’re Inspiring

Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black

Paper – Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White

Accessories – Garden Trellis Embossing Folder, Corner Round Punch, Layering Ovals Dies, Organdy Ribbon, Stampin’ Blends



I actually made several of these cards for different occasions and I can’t wait to mail them!  This is a bright and cheery card to make so I hope you’ll try it. 

Until next week…Happy Stamping!     Donna
