I'm stop #9 on the hop. The complete list of 12 hoppers and their blog links are below. Get ready for loads of inspiration and amazing talent. If you're following along on the hop, you've come here from Tonya Ball's Blog.

If your life is like mine, December is a crazy month!  Aside from the usual rush of life, we also need to find time for shopping, decorations and socializing.  This month, I decided to highlight the ease of digital papercrafting with Stampin' UP! My Digital Studio.

In My Digital Studio (MDS), you can choose from many great templates, or you can create your own project from scratch.  This cute card is one of those great ready-made templates!  How easy is that?!

All Things Stampin' Up! Blog Hop

Welcome to the "All Things Stampin' Up! Blog Hop" for November.  I'm stop #9 on the hop.  The complete list of 12 hoppers and their blog links are below.  Get ready for loads of inspiration and amazing talent. If you're following along on the hop, you've come here from Tonya Ball's Blog.

I've made two cards to share with you.  This first card was a very quick one, but I'm happy with the simplicity.  I used the "Baby Wipe" technique to color leaves as if they're changing for the season.  I created an ink pad by applying More Mustard (101962) and Cajun Craze (119790) reinkers to a baby wipe.  I stamped my image from Gently Falling (123804 clear, 123802 wood) onto the baby wipe to pick up the mixed colors, then I stamped the image onto Very Vanilla Cardstock (101650).  I stamped the leaf outline in Early Espresso (119670) as well as the saying from Curly Cute (120510 clear, 117014 wood).  I tied Very Vanilla (119960) and Early Espresso (119959) taffeta ribbon for a little something extra.

I made this second card a while ago, but I haven't had the chance to share it with you yet.  I used the Bright Blessings Jumbo Wheel (115626) in Chocolate Chip (100908) ink on Crumb Cake (120953) cardstock.  I layered this onto Chocolate Chip (102128), Old Olive (100702), and Pumpkin Pie (105117) cardstock.  I wound the Old Olive cardstock with Twine (100982) and mounted it all onto a Very Vanilla (101650) cardstock base.  Very quick and easy!

Faux Suede Build a Blossom

Sometimes a card just really hits home. This was one of those cards. I really love it. I used the Faux Suede technique for the leave in the back. For the front leaves, I colored directly onto the stamp using the Watercolor Wonder crayons. I spritzed the stamp with water before stamping it to paper. I love the new Build a Blossom Punch, too! I used a sentiment from the Sale-a-Bration set So Happy For You. I used a marker to color only the words "So Happy." I wanted this card to be versatile.

Valentine's Day - Did You Receive a Handmade Card?

I made this card last month for my monthly stamp club. I haven't posted it, because I knew I was going to give it to my sweetie for Valentine's Day. There is a lot going on with this card, so I knew I'd be giving it to someone extra special. This was my first time using the Build a Brads, and I know I will be using them a lot more! They are so easy to use! This was also the first time I had used my Pinking Hearts Corner Punch, even though I've had it since it first came available. (I think I was a little intimidated by it!)

This Valentine's Day, I was fortunate to receive a handmade card from my sweetie. He often helps me with projects for my monthly clubs and classes by cutting paper and giving me a "thumbs-up" on projects. So, this was a big surprise that he made me a card.
