Well it is the last Blog Hop of 2012 for us. I can't believe that the year has gone by so quickly. I became a grandma for the first time this year and it is wonderful! But this time I want to share with you my beautiful great-niece, she is also a cutie patootie so I have added her picture at the end. Last Sunday was the marathon Christmas card making class at my house. It was supposed to take three hours and took four and a half instead. Here are three of the twelve cards we made that day. These were all cased cards from my favorite Pintrest. Thanks to their original designers, they were beautiful.
And here is the picture of beautiful Charlie, isn't she so cute?

Both of my cards for this hop, I used my favorite technique, Baby Wipe Ink Pad. I thought that it was perfect for fall colors.
Stamp Sets: Autumn Days(Retired), Border Banter, Itty Bitty Banners
Paper: More Mustard, Watercolor Paper, Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP
Ink: Cajun Craze, Ink Refills: Always artichoke, Bravo Burgundy, Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, More Mustard and Riding Hood Red
Accessories: 7/8" Cotton Ribbon, Big Shot, 2 1/2" Circle Punch, Bitty Banners Framelits, Baby Wipe
I loved this stamp set from the minute I saw it. The medallion can be inked up so many different ways. I will be sending this one to my mother since I will be visiting Addison instead of going home for Thanksgiving, kind of feel for her, since the great grands have shown up, my generation want to be with them for holidays, and Mom is feeling left out, change is hard, but they aren't able to travel anymore, so I am going for a visit this weekend.
Stamps: Day of Gratitude
Paper: More Mustard, Watercolor Paper, Regal Color Collection DSP Stack
Ink: Cajun Craze, Stazon, Ink Refills: Always artichoke, Bravo Burgundy, Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, More Mustard and Riding Hood Red

Welcome Fall! It is the start of a new Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog, and, of course, another llama hop. Starting August 9th, the Stampin' Llamas will be hopping again. This time we will be showcasing the many wonderful products from the 2012 Holiday Catalog.
I don't know about your area of the country, but in Southern Illinois, with little rain the last two months, and our grass is dead and the leaves are starting to drop, so it looks like Fall already. But on my butterfly bushes, the butterflies are still thick, so on the web I have seen many different butterfly pictures. I finally decided to make myself one with our new Elegant Butterfly Punch:
At our last technique class, we used the Embossed Kisses Technique using the new Holiday Frame Embossing Folder found on page 7 of the Holiday Catalog. My first Christmas Card in shades of Pink...I think I like it.
|Holiday Frame Embossed Kisses|
Paper: Pretty in Pink and Very Vanilla Card Stock, Fan Fair DSP
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Raspberry Ripple
Accessories: Big Shot, Holiday Frame Embossing Folder, 1 3/4" Circle Punch, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack
My very favorite stamp set in the new Holiday Catalog is the Affection Collection. It can be used for so much more than Valentines Day. Here I used it for a Thank You card for my daughter and her husband for hosting me for a week.
|Lacy Affection Thank You|
For the background I used the new Core'dinations Card Stock with the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder. The new card stock has monochromatic color layer that can be revealed by sanding with our new Stampin' Sanding Block. You can see all of the colors on page 6 of the new Holiday Catalog. Don't you just love the Tulle belly band? It is also in the Holiday Mini on page 4. It is so soft and easy to work with.
Stamp Set: Affection Collection, Curly Cute
Paper: Naturals White, Whisper white, Core'dinations Card Stock Cherry Cobbler
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Big Shot, Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder, Modern Label Punch, Window Frames Collection Framelits, Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Stampin' Sanding Block, 3-1/2" Scalloped Tulle Ribbon
Thanks for stopping by now on to the next stop, Linda, you'll love her creative Christmas cards. A special thank you to Stephanie who designed our banner and buttons, they are so special.
