Santa letter

Hi Followers,

So I know it's still been a while.  With Christmas coming my other business "Madi's Diva Designs" is really been busy.  I have been super busy making tutus, bow, hats, and more.  Check it out at: or on facebook at

Anyways, back to the good stuff.  I made this Santa card which is beard pulls out and turns into paper where your little kiddo can write a letter to Santa and mail it off.  It's soooo cute for their baby books.  I used the Top note die to make the Santa, his hat and beard.  I also used the bird punch for his hair and beard.  I hope you like it.

MIA: Missing in Action

Hi Stampers,

I have to appologize for being MIA: Missing in Action lately.  I have been SOOO busy.  First my daughter Madi and I drove to SD to visit my family.  It was a wonderful trip.  Then coming back, I've been spending a lot of time on my other business, which is making bows, and tutus for little girls.  You can find that business at: or on facebook at!/pages/Mountain-Home-ID/Madis-Diva-Designs/160453190654439
So I've been very busy.  Hope you all had a terrific Halloween.  I will be posting new cards next week.  For now enjoy some pictures.  I made pumpkin bread for friends and then a couple of my daughter on Halloween.  Then of course one of my daughter and I on my birthday.

Another WOW, thanks

Another Big Thanks goes out to Sherrill Graff from  She has posted a blog about ME, yes ME.  I was super shocked to see it.  I am now a Late Night stamper member.  I just wanted to tell everyone how much I appreciate all your kind words.  Thank you so much!

As for Stampin posts.  I will not be posting anything new card wise until after Monday.  I have such an insane schedule the past days and through the weekend.  Between writing my 14 page paper due for my law class and studying for finals, I am running my first ever 5K tomorrow, along with babysitting for friends and another open house Sunday after church and family photos, I need a nap....WOW, just typing it I got overwhelmed again.  So I will be back to make projects next week before I jet off to South Dakota for a vacation to see my family. 


WOW, Thank you!

Hi Stampers,

Today I felt honored to have my blog and punch cards shown on Kim Score's blog  I put a lot of work into my cards and especially my punch cards.  So it's nice to have them recognized.  Big Thanks to Kim.

Here it is....Finally

Hi Everyone,

So I recently won the Walt Disney Contest on Stampin Up with my Mickey Mouse card.  So many of you have emailed me about how I made it.  So as promised here is the card and instructions.  If you have further questions, feel free to ask me.  My daughter, Madi loves Mickey Mouse so this card was fun. 

I made this card using a double side step card:

Mickey: Made using circle punches, I hand drew the white part on his face then cut it out and added it.  I also hand drew the white part of his eyes.  I used the owl punch for the black part of his eye. His hat is also hand drawn

Minnie:  She was also made using the circle punches and made her face like Mickey's.  Hand drew them.  Same with her body, bows and hat.  For her brim on her hat, I used the 1/2 in circle punch. 

Goofy:  Made with large extra large punch for base of head, then used oval punch for eyes and nose.  Hand cut hair, ears, mouth and teeth.  His hat is made with punches too.

Trees: are made using the oval punches.  Then you just keep adding to them.  I put them all on a piece of card brown card stock to support them.  Then used a star.  I cut out ornaments with circle punches.

Presents: just cut squares and wrapped them with thin paper.

I hope this helps.  If you have further questions, please let me know.

Leaves card

To make this card, I gathered leaves from outside.  I sponged ink onto them.  Then I laid them face down on whisper white card stock.  Then I took my brayer and ran it across the back of the leaves to make the impression.  Then I took some smooch spray and misted the picture.  Once dry I added the greeting and ribbon and of course one more leave.  I hope you enjoy it!
