Sweet Stampin' Up! Only Cards


Sorry I have been a bad blogger, but I have been busy working! I got a job as an in-home care giver, and I have been working for about a month now. I like it, and it sure feels good to make some money again! It's so empowering! I feel so good!

I made these two cards on World Card Making Day, (I know....almost two weeks ago!) for my vitual Stampin' Up! hostess group. We place our orders with our demo each month, with a set minimum purchase amount, and we all rotate being the hostess each month. That way we can enjoy our SU goodies without having to throw a party each month, and still get hostess bennies! I like it a lot!
I was the hostess in September, and boy do I love my new free stuff!!

Our demo posted a couple of challenges for WCMD, with prizes, so I HAD to join in the fun! :)

The first card challenge was to make a 'Re-Make' card by choosing a card in the current SU catty, and remake it by changing the colors or stamps used, but keeping the layout. I chose the card on page 111, which uses Pacific Point and Old Olive, and the Bluberry Crisp dsp.
I used Rose Red and Pumpkin Pie, and the new Sweet and Sour Specialty dsp for my butterflies. I love that paper! It is beauitful!
I am going to send this card to my baby sister in Dallas, Texas, because she just sent me the prettiest necklace! She's so sweet!

This second card was created for a challenge that required us to use at least two of the new In-Colors, and two current punches. I used Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz, the new Decorative Label punch, and a circle punch. Those new glittery brads are so pretty, I am so glad I bought those! (Yes, I spend a lot of money on SU products! I am addicted!!)
I actually won this challenge, and got to pick a new punch from the catty. My choice is the new 2-3/8" Scallop Circle punch! Can't wait to get that!
I have a lot of SU stuff that I have not even used yet! It is sad almost, but I will use it sometime! LOL!! Right??

Okay, that's it for me today! I've got to get off this computer and make some new Designed2Delight creations! The team has been extremely busy while I have been at work! LOTS of catching up to do!

Have the most creative day!

{Designed2Delight} Designers Party Blog Hop

Welcome to the Designed2Delight Designer's World Card Making Day Blog Hop!
You should have arived here from Kathie's blog. If you are just joining us, or you are lost, you will want to start at the beginning with Faith's blog, Delightful Inspiration.
Each blog in the hop will have something special for you, either a free digital stamp, or a letter of the alphabet. When you have collected all of the letters in the order of the hop, they will spell out a special code for you that will get you a free Dollar Delight Digi Stamp from Designed2Delight!
This code is only good until the end of Sunday, October 3rd! Hurry - grab a pen and paper, and get started at Faith's blog!
Faith has asked the Design Team to crEate a card or projEct using their favorite D2D digi, and I have chosen 'Believe'. It was one of Faith's first digital stamps, and is what caught my eye and lured me into the world of digital stamping.

Isn't he cute?!? Here is a pEek inside.......

My next project I am sharing today, uses a brand nEw Dollar Delight Digi called 'Stocking'.
I decided to crEate a pair of fun Christmas gift tags with it! So fun and easy-peasy!
I simply printed the image out twice, colored them with dye ink markers, and cut them out. I diE-cut the tag shapes, added a bit of patterned paper and gold cord, and attached the stockings with dimEnsional dots!

Everyone should try their hand at making fun Holiday Tags! It is so fun!
Thank you all so much for hopping along with the DEsigned2Delight Design TEam! I hope you have found some inspiration and mojo today!
Kendra is the next stop on the hop!
