Fall Fun Blog Hop

Welcome to Stop # 4 on the Fall Fun Blog Hop.  If you came from Kim's Blog, you're right on track.  If not, you may want to start at the beginning at Lydia's Blog (it's only 3 back).  Normally, I would tell you to grab your Pumpkin Spice Latte and enjoy the show, but since it's going to be almost 100 here in the Chicago area, I'll recommend an iced latte instead.  Since this hop is HUGE, I'll keep the yapping to a minimum...
I'm gonna say it again - OH HOW I LOVE DIGI PAPERS!!! Here is the start of my cards (oh yes, I said cards with an S!).  I used the Spice Cake digi papers from SU. And even some "seasoned" Stampin' Up! demos couldn't guess it... the look TOTALLY changes when you make it tiny.
Here is my set of 6 fall mini cards.  I use mini cards at work all the time, and my stock was running low, so here we go.  The inside was also decorated with more of the Spice Cake digi papers. And do you see that quilling work?!?! Yeah!  Here's a close-up of one.
I used quite a few die cuts on this, all by MFT... First Place Ribbon, Leafy Flourish, Mini Rolled Rose (larger of the 2 sizes).
Here are the 3 versions of the cards.  I got bored making them all the same, so I didn't Roll I used 3 different MFT sets for these sentiments: Poppy (Sending Smiles) Presents for You (Especially for You), Well Worn Greetings (thank you).
A little Cappuccino twine, Fossil CS, Chocolate Pearls / Bisque Liquid Pearls, and Oasis Green VersaMagic and Soft Suede ink finish off the projects.
Shopping SpreeI've talked about digi papers for almost a month now, so let me give some away! Two random commentors will WIN this Spice Cake digi paper pack (or another SU paper pack of their choice).  Just tell me what YOUR favorite crafting supply is (because I'm ALWAYS on the hunt for new goodies!).

Now, hop on over to my friend, Lee's Blog, to see what AMAZING creation she has in store!  If you'd like to see the full list of today's hop, you can find it in a spreadsheet HERE. Dina was nice enough to link it all up for us, so here ya go...

Susan W. said...

Michelle, your mini cards are wonderful! I love to make several cards similar and change up the sentiment or the embellishments. My favorite new product is the Xyron 1.5" create-a-sticker maker. It is great for attaching small stamped images to a card.

Judy Rozema said...

What adorable little cards! Love your flowers~! Happy Fall!

Jennifer said...

Beautiful mini's! I love how you gave them all the same elements but all are unique!

Patricia said...

Your mini cards are fantastic! The little flowers are adorable.

Just ONE favorite crafting supply? That's like asking me to choose which of my children is my favorite! But I'll go with ribbon because it's so versatile - just a single strip as an embellishment, or tied in a knot, or tied in a bow, or several strips woven together...

Kim said...

So sweet!

Heather said...

Gorgeous set of cards! How do I pick a favorite crafting supply?! I love them all! I really love twine right now though!

Your little cards have really imspired me to make up a batch of Thanksgiving cards, but in miniature! My favorite craft supply has become my dies and embossing folders! I just a year or so bought my Cuttlebug...yes, a late bloomer! And I love it and all of the dies that are out there!

Marsha said...

Cute little cards. I am really loving Digital images and paper right now but I don't know what I would do without my Cuttlebug !!!

Babe O'Mara said...

These are so gorgeous. I've never worked with digi paper, but I'd like to win yours. My favorite is ribbon and twine. Love working with them. They add so much to a card or project. Thanks for a chance to win.

Auntie Em said...

You did a beautiful job on creating your card set. Some papers do seem to work better on cards when they are scaled down.
Fav crafting supply at the moment is probably Glitter Ritz. It's so sparkly!
Thanks for sharing! :)

Flo - Sweetideas said...

Love the digi papers and the die cuts. Cute cards.

Funky Finds said...

This may sound crazy, but my fav craft supply is...double-sided tape! It is so handy!

Hannah said...

Michelle, these note cards are lovely. Have you created the digi image of layered papers, then printed them and ripped and edited them? They look great. Those felt flowers are gorgeous. I have that die but haven't tried it with felt, shall definitely have to now :)
Thanks for linking this up to my blog candy question :)
