This year, I used some cardstock I had leftover from my Holiday Trinkets stamp-a-stack card. I wanted to use the Love You Much Bundle, since it is on special in January. (Click here to learn more about getting 20% off this special Valentine Bundle.) Here's my card:
Supplies: Love You Much, Real Red ink & cardstock, Basic Black ink, So Saffron marker & cardstock, Whisper White cardstock, Kraft cardstock, Heart to Heart Punch, 3/4" Square Punch
Here's the pile of 40 cards before I mailed them:
I really like this layout, and apparently so did my downline! They CASEd the layout for their own cards. Here are two, from Barb and Cindy.

Use a glue dot to adhere only the outside end to the inside of your card. The spiral should lay flat in the form of the original circle. Put another glue dot on the very middle of the spiral. Close the card and push down on the front of the card so that the end of the spiral catches and adheres to the top of the inside. Here's a picture showing one spiral fully attached and the second spiral attached to the bottom with the glue dot ready to go in the middle.
I used the 1-1/4" Circle Punch to punch out the bees and then I adhered them to the spiral with a single glue dot at the very bottom of the bee (on the back). I used 5 bees on the inside (odd numbers are more pleasing to the eye), but one of them is adhered to the inside of then card and not to a spiral.

As I start the new year blogging, I'm curious to know who's reading and following my stamping journey. I don't anticipate that the answer will affect the content of my blog incredibly. I still intend to continue sharing new projects "almost daily" and hope to inspire all of you in your own creations. But it will be nice to know "who" I'm talking to.
So, please take just a minute to click your answer to my current poll: "Are You a Fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator?" Please answer honestly and know that regardless of your answer, I appreciate the time you take to check in with me each day!

Order on my website: http://juliedavison.stampinup.net/ (Click "Shop Now").
I'll try to work on the photo tutorial for the baby wipe technique next week. Basically, you take a baby wipe and fold it into quarters. Add dots of several different color reinkers. To make the striped background (at the bottom of my card), wipe the baby wipe across the cardstock. For the tie-dye look, use the baby wipe as a "ink pad" for a bold stamp (the butterfly wings on my card).
Supplies: Flight of the Butterfly, Apricot Appeal reinker & cardstock, Regal Rose reinker & cardstock, Almost Amethyst reinker, Whisper White cardstock, Basic Black ink pad, 1/4" Regal Rose grosgrain ribbon, Baby Wipe

Here's a side view, so you can see how the front adheres to the Top Note card.
And here's a photo of the folded cardstock on the die. I used the pink cardstock underneath so you could see the outline of the die and where to place your folded card. (You would not cut the red cardstock with the pink one on there.)
Supplies: Love You Much, Pink Pirouette cardstock, Riding Hood Red ink & cardstock, Very Vanilla cardstock, Candy Cande DSP, Top Note die for the Big Shot, Scallop Circle Punch, 1-3/8" Circle Punch

Here's a blast from the past. I absolutely love this project from last Valentine's Day. Since I wasn't blogging last year this time, I just had to post and share it with you.
Supplies: Happy Heart Day stamp set; Real Red, Pretty in Pink, & Whisper White cardstock; Real Red & Basic Black Classic Ink; Going Gray, Ballet Blue, Pretty in Pink, and Real Red markers; Paper Crimper; Spiral Punch; Real Red 5/8" grosgrain ribbon; Medium Cello Bags Silver Brads; 1/16" Hole Punch
- Base: 4 ¼” x 11” Real Red – score at 4 ½”, 5 ½”, 6 ½”
- Topper: 4 ¾” x 2 ½” Pretty in Pink – score long way at 1 ½”
- Focal Image: 2” x 2 ¼” Whisper White
- Mat: 2 ½” x 2 ½” Pretty in Pink
- Fold the topper in half and stamp greeting in Real Red classic ink. Crimp the cardstock.
- Stamp the mouse in Jet Black Staz-On. Watercolor the mouse using the Aquapainter and the markers smeared on the stamp case (to create a palette to pick up the ink) Use the fine tip of the marker directly on the cardstock to color the red.
- Hold a short piece of ribbon in half and staple to the back of the Pretty in Pink square. Punch the opposite side using the Spiral Punch. Adhere the white cardstock, covering the staple, to the Pretty in Pink cardstock using SNAIL adhesive.
- Fold the Real Red cardstock in a tall W. Fold the top of the candy-filled cello bag and staple to the top of the treat base. This will hold it in place while you put the topper on and attach with silver brads.

Because I'm traveling this week and won't have time for Kristina's weekly color challenge, I made up a color challenge of my own! I saved a piece of this wrapping paper from the gift my sister gave my dad for his birthday. (Too bad I didn't take a picture before he unwrapped it!) This photo doesn't do it justice it. The metallic wrapping paper has varying shades of blues, purple, and green. I picked out four colors for my color inspiration: Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise, Elegant Eggplant, and Kiwi Kiss.
I thought the colors were perfect for a masculine card and since today is my brother's birthday (Happy Birthday, Mark!), I made up this card for him.
Supplies: Starring You, Stars Jumbo Wheel, Pacific Point ink & cardstock, Tempting Turquoise cardstock, Elegant Eggplant cardstock, Kiwi Kiss textured cardstock, small & large Star Punches, 1-3/4" & 1-1/4" Circle Punches, Metal Edge Tags, Silver Brads

The stamp set, Candy Cane DSP, and punch are all from the Love You Much bundle. (Click here for details.) You can get it 20% off in January. However, right now, it's unavailable in my online store, so email me if you want to order it!
The cover is my favorite part. I love the way it turned out!
The tin holds four 3x3 cards (aka Love Notes) and four stamped envelopes.
