Christmas Tags

I have a few tags (7) I created for the 
being inspired by Day 6 with the cute little penguins
by both Katie and Carol designing for Avery Elle!

I had just purchased the cute Whittle Penguin die by Poppystamps
and pulled it out to use.



I have an obsession for the Whittle dies and when I saw these
they jumped in my cart!



I just die cut 7 mamas and 7 babies,
colored them in, added some 'snow'....pretty easy and ready to go!

Make sure to follow along each day as there are numerous sponsors 
and I will be back on the 17th with a tag for our own
and it is the cutest thing EVER!!

Entering in the following challenges: 

All Roads

It's that time again with a new theme at
The Sisterhood of Crafters and being hosted by our 'sistah' Terri.
She has chosen the theme of 'Forest Friends'!

My biggest problem was to decide which of my forest friends to use,
as I seem to have lots and lots...hmmm.

One of the things I love about our Sisterhood challenges is that
I get to use anything I want as long as I stick to the theme,
making it a good time to use NBUS!!


For my card I chose the cute cute
Christmas Wishes set from Mulberry Wood.

I had some fun coloring these little characters up
and adding a bit of sparkle here and there.

I also added a few snowflakes.

I hope you will join in our challenge at
The Sisterhood as we would love to see 
YOUR Forest Friends!!

Flower Hope

This is my post on the Tutti Designs blog today.

Hello Tutti friends, Diane here with you on this fine Tuesday morning
with a bit of Flower Hope.

My first card I die cut my hope flower twice,
once from green and the second from peach,
then trimming off the flower and piecing it on.
I used the Scalloped Ovals for my flower to 'rest' on and added a few
glitter hearts.


For the next card, I embossed a background,
then die cut from white and colored in with Copics...easy peasy!


The last card I adhered scraps of designer paper to card stock
then die cut with the Scalloped Stitched Rectangles,
I turned this flower on its side for a different approach for using this die.

Grateful Pillow Treat Box

Designing For The Cutting Cafe

Today I have a fun 'Pillow Treat' Box for Fall
Make sure and click on the link to see ALL that comes with this set
as it is quite a bargain  for $4.99!!

I had intentionally planned  on making a matching box to this one
but my Cricut tore up my paper...
MY fault as I forgot to change the setting from card stock to paper...geez!
I guess that is what you call operator density!!


I kept my box pretty simple and you can see it is not yet filled,
I don't keep candy around the house much
as it is too tempting for me to 'gobble' down
and has a way of calling to me!!


Also these are a nice size pillow box, bigger then I have normally seen
so make a nice size for a fun treat.


I also would of normally used a smaller print
for my box (which the second box would of had)
but I just loved these fun Fall colors.  I added the flower and leaves to finish it off.

Visit The Cutting Cafe blog tomorrow (11-7)and you can see plenty
more of these fab boxes made by our Design Team...
each so different and unique,
by leaving a comment there you could win a prize in the next drawing Nov. 21st.

Neutral Fall Challenge at Double D

Today is a start of a new challenge theme at
and the theme is Neutral Fall.

Gosh I LOVE this mood board and I want my house to look exactly like it!!
There were so many things in this mood board that caught my eye


I ended up making a very CAS card with a few stamps and dies.


The gingham stamp is from Impression Obsession,
one of those 'all over' stamps, that I cut down to size
trying to replicate the pillows on the board.

The seeds stamp is also from IO and I think this is the second time it has seen ink...
it has so many uses.

The pumpkin dies are from Cheery Lynn Designs
and the sentiment is from Sparkle N Sprinkle.


Head on over to the Double D blog to see all the fun 'Neutral Fall'
creations from the Design Team....those girls always~always amaze me with their creativity!!

Wedding and Anniversary

This is my post on the Tutti Designs blog today

Hi Tutti Fans, Diane with you today using the beautiful
Doves & Rings die.

This is a great die for either a wedding or an anniversary.
Just so happens I made cards for both.

My first card is obviously the wedding card.
I embossed a background from white card stock and cut
an oval 'window' to stamp the sentiment in
then placed the doves and rings die cut over that
I added a pretty lavender bow to finish.

Please excuse the overall watermarks on my cards,
it was something we had to do for 'safety' of our designs.



The second card is an anniversary card that would be perfect for a 
silver anniversary.
After die cutting the Doves & Rings,
I placed on a Tutti Designs Stitched Oval (saved form the oval window I show above),
then added a silver bow and a glitter heart.


Links for dies used are given below.
