It's a blog hop!

Today is a great day! Not only is today Pink Paper Bakery share day, but I'm also joining a fun blog hop!

I recently joined the SUDSOL group. It's a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who are all in one place, supporting and sharing with each other. SUDSOL is like having a 24/7 upline! It's fabulous, and open to all Stampin' Up! Demos! I love the sample gallery (see my gallery). If you are a SU demo, you should definitely check out SUDSOL.

SUDSOL Blog Tour - June 13, 2013

SUDSOL has blog hops, and I'm so excited to be a part of this one! Check out my artwork and then follow the trail through some of my fellow SUDSOLers blogs to see their artwork too.

  1. Very pretty cards, the Wetlands card is gorgeous.

    1. Thanks, Elaine! Wetlands is my favorite too!

  2. Nice projects. I especially love the way you did the Wetlands card. How did you get it so soft? I have this set on my wish list and I think this card definitely sold me!

    1. Thanks, Barbara! I guess that soft look is just the magic of the technique. It kind of blends together when the block hits the card stock, and dries that way. The first time I didn't spritz it enough, so it wasn't as soft in appearance.

  3. Beautiful Wetlands card, Deena! I had that set out this week, too, and I'll pull it back out to try to CASE your card!

    1. Thanks, Robin! It did take me a few tries to get the right number of spritzes, but each time I got a little different looking background. Have fun!

  4. love, LoVe, LOVE these cards! Def on my CASE list! TFS

  5. I really like your style Deena. Love the Wetlands card best.
