The Rabbit Hole Designs September Release Day 3

I hope you have been enjoying The Rabbit Hole Designs September release so far!
Day 3 will not disappoint!  We have 2 final stamp sets to share with you!
They are called Pumpkin Friends and Gourd-geous.

Here is Pumpkin Friends


Here are my 2 cards for this stamp set:


I love the distressed look on this card and the tiny key charm hanging from the top 
just gives it a real antique feel.  I used the sentiment from the Boo To You stamp set
that was featured yesterday, it's such a great font!


Here is the second card, I decided to make a fun Halloween scene 
with some fun die cuts!



Next up is the stamp set called Gourd-geous. This stamp set 
is being released with it's own die and I just love how it cuts
out that crooked hat so perfectly!




Here are my 2 cards for this stamp set:

The first card is a shaker card with a distress ink blended background.
Shakers are my favorite and I love how these 3 inks blended so well together!




I love how cute this second card is with all the fun layers!
I just love how happy that pumpkin looks, he really stands out
on the top layer with all of those yummy sequins around him.

The Rabbit Hole Designs September Release Day 2

Welcome back to day 2 of The Rabbit Hole Designs September Release!
Yesterday was so much fun we thought we'd do it again!
Today we are featuring 2 new stamp sets called
Pumpkin Hair Don't Care and Boo To You


Pumpkin Hair Don't Care

Here is a shaker card and a tag featuring this crazy looking pumpkin:



For my second project using the Pumpkin Hair Don't Care stamp set I made a tag
using the Puzzle Box stencil for the background.






Here is a look at the second stamp set we are featuring today called 
Boo To You

The first card I made uses just the witch's hat from the stamp set.
How funny does this oversized witch hat look on Inky the Octopus!
I just knew that the funny sentiment from the new Hex Yeah stamp set
was the perfect addition to that crazy look on Inky's face!



My second card uses the Happy Halloween sentiment
from the Boo To You stamp set. I just love the fun font in this set!
The little black kitty with her pumpkin are from the Hex Yeah stamp set.
They were the perfect addition to this banner shaped card!



Here is the hop list so you can visit all of my talented teamies and see
what they have been stirring up in their cauldron for this release!

Altenew Peruvian Lily Card


I have had the Altenew Peruvian Lily Build-A-Flower for a couple of
months now and just never seem to find the time to ink it up.
I finally had some time this morning and I'm so glad I did!
This flower is drop dead GORGEOUS!!!! Not to mention so much fun to stamp.
It really is easy to line up and the results are breathtaking!
Thank goodness I don't need a sympathy card right now but I think
this flower makes such an elegant card and is so appropriate for a card like this.
The scalloped die on the base of the card is the Kat Scrappiness 
Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Die and it is my go to scalloped die.
My sentiment if from the Taylored Expressions Simple Strips Background stamp
and I just love that stamp and die set! If you haven't already seen that product
you must check it out! It stamps and cuts out multiple sentiments in 2 easy steps.
It's a great way to build a sentiment stash to have on hand!

The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge for this week is 
Clean and Simple so I'm going to enter this card over there.
It's been a while since I played along, I really do love their challenges!

Thanks for stopping by the old blog today!
Have a wonderful day, I already am!

Caffeine Saves Lives


Hello again and welcome back to my blog!
I'm up on the Rabbit Hole Designs blog today and I have a short story to share with you.
I recently acquired the Caffeinated Shark stamp
and die and I'm so glad I did! Did you ever not order a stamp because you thought
you wouldn't use it and then see it used on a card and you're sorry you didn't order it?
Well a good purple haired friend of mine calls it FOMO...….
Now for those of you who don't know what that means (I certainly did not)
It means "fear of missing out".....
Well, I'm not missing out anymore, now little sharky is mine and I'm so glad he is!
I really have to start training myself to look at craft supplies in a different way
and see the potential in them.
Ok enough rambling for now, on to my card!

Card Recipe

1)  I usually start by stamping my image with some Copic friendly ink
and coloring with my Copic markers. I loved coloring sharky with my "W"
markers and giving him some fun spots along the way. I used the matching
die to cut him out after he was colored.
2) I covered my card base with some fun water themed patterned paper from the
Sunny Studios Summer Splash paper pack as a background for my card.
3) My Bubble Oval Die cut was the perfect layer over the patterned paper
for little sharky and his fish friends.
4) I stamped the super funny sentiment from Perfectly Blended and
cut it in half.  I then inked the edges of the 2 sentiment strips in blue
to match the card.
5) I foam mounted the La La Land fishies, sentiment and shark on the card and I'm
picturing the fish being scared of sharky and that the
caffeine is saving THEIR lives! 🀣🀣🀣

Here are the two Rabbit Hole stamp sets I used for today's card:

CAFFEINATED: Shark Clear Stamp 3x4
Caffeinated Shark
Perfectly Blended Clear Stamp 4x6
Perfectly Blended

Don't forget you can now purchase The Rabbit Hole stamps, dies and stencils

Coffee Friends


Hello Coffee Lovers and welcome back to my blog!
I'm up on the Coffee Loving Cardmaker's blog today with some more
caffeinated inspiration in my ICU!

I can't seem to get enough of the cute stamps from Darcie's Heart and Home lately!
Today I have a sweet card using their Milk and Cookies stamp set.
I guess I'm a sucker for anything with a cute little face.
This set has the sweetest coffee cup, donut, cup of milk and chocolate chip
cookie I've ever seen.  I used the coffee and donut for my coffee friends card.


I started with a kraft colored base cut out using the Stitched Scalloped Rectangle
frames from Kat Scrappiness.  I made my own background by stamping the images
from the stamp set randomly over the kraft panel.
I colored my cute little coffee cup and donut with my Copic markers
and cut them out with my Scan n Cut.
I used the Stitched Scalloped Rectangle frames from Kat Scrappiness
one more time to cut a smaller rectangle out of vellum to layer on the middle of
the card. I took a piece of burlap and adhered it over the kraft and vellum panel
and then decorated it with a pretty piece of Tea colored seam binding from
Paper Sweeties. I popped my little cuties up on foam tape over the burlap and
stamped the cute sentiment on to the vellum layer.
I finished off the card with a few Blue Jewels from Kat Scrappiness.
Here's a closeup of that cute cup and donut!


Thank you so much for stopping by my ICU today for your daily dose of 
caffeinated fun! Hope to see you back here real soon!

Have a great day, I already am!

This is a fabulous set containing 21 amazing sentiments with 3 different

Best Day Ever

For my card today I used the cupcake die from the 
Sweet Cuts - Cupcakes and Sprinkles and I cut the top of the 
cupcakes out after doing some heat embossing with rose gold
embossing powder.  I just love the subtle shimmer it gives.
I mounted each cupcake on to a piece of vellum cut with the 
I mounted the vellum and cupcakes on some pretty floral paper 
that matched the band around the cupcake bases.
For the sentiment I went with a simple "Wish" die cut in black
from the Sweet Cuts - Wish die set.

August New Release fun! These new cupcakes are Oh So Cute 
and there is so many different ways to dress them up and

You're that one friend...



Good morning and welcome to my blog!
It's my turn over on The Rabbit Hole Blog today and I have a fun circle card
to share with you featuring three fun products from The Rabbit Hole Designs!
Those crazy eyed Octopi from the Inky stamp set always make me giggle!





I decided to make a fun round card with this stamp set and incorporate the
Puzzle Box stencil and Sassy Sentiments stamp set as well.

Card Recipe

1) I colored my googly eyed Octopus from the Inky stamp set with 
Copic markers and cut her out with my Scan n Cut.

2)  Next I blended 3 different Distress Oxide inks over the Puzzle Box stencil
Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio and Mermaid Lagoon.

3) Then I cut out a circle die from the stenciled card stock.

4) Lastly I placed Inky up on foam dots and stamped the fun sentiment from 
Sassy Sentiments in black ink across the bottom.


Easy peasy and a cute card to give to that "special" friend just for fun!
