Favorite Embellishments!

I was so excited when I saw the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog!  I ordered it right away, but wasn’t sure what to do with it!

Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration team is featuring Friday Favorites:  Occasions Accessories!  I pulled out my Embellishment Kit & this is what I came up with:

I just love it!!  The tassels!!  The little bows!!

Here’s the ingredients:

  • Baker’s Box Thinlits Dies
  • Craft Paper
  • Cupcakes & Carousels DSP Stack
  • Carousel Birthday Stamp Set
  • Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit
  • Layering Ovals Framelits Dies
  • Calypso Coral Marker
  • Sprinkles Embellishments

Don’t forget…it’s Sale-A-Bration Time!!  Woohoo!  Get something FREE with every $50 you spend!

The Baker’s Box is the perfect size for a stack of cookies or a cupcake or handful of chocolate (my favorite!)

I just love this sentiment & think I’ll use it a lot!  It’s meant to be used on the inside of a card, I think, because it actually starts with the word “because”.  First I inked up my stamp & tried to erase it using a blender pen.  I still saw a shadow when I stamped it, so I had better luck just inking the stamp using my marker.

Hope you are inspired to get some of those Embellishments!  They’re so much fun to work with!

Be sure and check out what the other gals on the SSINK Design Team have created!  You’re sure to get some great ideas!!

Stenciling Technique Challenge #SSINKTC40

Today we have a fun challenge for you to try… Masking or Stenciling!

I made a stencil by cutting out a tree using Perfect Pines Framelits Dies.  Using sponge daubers, I sponged the tree with Old Olive & Pear Pizzazz.  Decided it needed more color, so I reached for Rose Red.  That’s one of those colors I forget about…but I just love it!

 

Isn’t that fun?!!  I sponged the tree on This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper.

The star is punched from Blossom Punch.  I thought it would be cute with a bird, because of the music notes!

The bird was part of the Tree Builder Punch.

Which one do you like best?  The star or the bird?

I’m soooooo behind!  Ha!  I’m afraid my friends are getting New Year’s Cards this year.  But it’s all good.  I’m just stretching out the fun.

It was fun to take a break this morning & make this card.  I can’t wait to see what the other Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team has made for this challenge!  CLICK HERE to see more ideas!
