I made two cards today. I used one of my all time favorite stamp sets; "Lovely as a Tree". I stamped the tree with black stazon ink, then I used 3 different colors of Stampin' Up! ink with a blender pen and colored in the foliage of the tree. The trees here in North Dakota are starting to change colors. This big tree reminds me of the colors around here.
The new designer series paper (Naturals Composition) with the wood grain embossing already on it was just the perfect paper for my card.
Here is the second card I made. I layered the tree on 3 different layers of paper. I added the pearls on the bottom for the finishing touch.
Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your blog hop tour!

Today's PPA Challenge features the colors below:
My inspiration for the fish came from Niki Toll. She had a card on Pinterest.com that featured a punch art fish. When I saw it, I knew I had to case it!! Isn't he cute?!

I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for Stampin' Up! projects featuring the new Holiday Catalog!

The card I made for the blog hop features the stamp set, 'Perfectly Preserved'. This set is so versatile and fun to use. I thought the "Orchard Harvest" designer series paper (DSP) went well with this set. I layered the card to get some depth and detail. I just tore the edges of the paper to get the jagged edge look.
I used some of the new in-color ink to coordinate with the DSP when I stamped the jars and apples. Bakers twine was used to top off the jar on the right.
Here is a close up look at the jars!
Now hop along for more inspiring ideas from Mikki Sarkisyan stop number 20 on the Pals Holiday Catalog Blog Hop! Thanks for "hopping" by!

My Guest Appearance!
Today is an exciting day for me. I am a guest on Mary Fish's Stamping Pretty website!! To me, she is a 'rock star' of Stampin' Up! She is a great leader of all the PALS and has a BIG following. I am so inspired by her work, and have loved being a part of her Stampin' Up! group. She is wonderful person, and I even had an opportunity to meet her in person when I was in Arizona on vacation.
The project that is featured is a purse (or bag) I made out of Stampin Up! fabric. It was such a fun project to make. Stampin' Up!'s fabric is of high quality, and I loved working with it. Here it is:
I used the "Spice Cake" designer series fabric from the Stampin' Up! The purse is made from sewing together 2.5" strips of fabric. I followed a pattern I purchased at a local quilt store. It was easy to make and I have been giving them as gifts! I have made 5 purses so far. So fun for me! If you have any questions about the purse or want further information, you can email me at: email@example.com
Inside Purse: I love all the pockets!
Here is another example of a purse I sewed using "Beau Chateau" designer fabric from Stampin' Up! After I made it, I realized it looks like a small baby/diaper bag. I plan on saving this purse for a gift to give someone who has a baby girl. Here it is:
