Daisy Delight for Spring

Who’s ready for Spring?  I remember when I lived in Denver for a few years and how excited I’d get when I’d see the daffodils poking up through the snow!  I was so ready for the sun to come out!!

Our theme today is Spring- so that means flowers to me!  I made a Fun Fold Card with daisies.

Isn’t that cute?!  If you’d like directions with measurements, I’d be happy to send them your way.  Just leave me a comment below at the bottom of the page!

Be sure & head over to SSINKspiration to see what the other design team members have come up with for Spring!

Stampin’ Blends Update

The Stampin’ Blends Markers have been so incredibly popular that inventory has run out on many colours, and many more are close to being depleted. Because of the long lead time to have the markers made, Stampin’ Up! will be placing the Stampin’ Blends on ‘non-orderable’ status this coming Friday, March 23rd at 12noon(mountain).
So what does that mean for you? Well, if any of the Stampin’ Blends are on your shopping list, I urge you to order them before Friday at 12noon. Why should you order them if you likely won’t receive them for quite some time? Because if you order them now, not only can you take advantage of Sale-a-bration and earn free items with your purchase, but you’ll also have secured your order in the queue to have your Stampin’ Blends sent out as soon they are available again.
I absolutely love these markers and find them really easy to use. Just check out these beautiful cards.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Have you ever tried the Reflection Technique?  I think you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to do!  Today at Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspriation we’re focusing on the Reflection Technique and hope you’ll play along with our challenge!

I’ve used this technique before, but always with Lovely As a Tree.  For my card I’m using a neglected (but loved!) stamp set.  Wild About Flowers.  Isn’t that sentiment so nice?

I’m not really very good at sponging, but getting better with practice.  Here’s a card I made with a left-over piece from a card I messed up on.  I think I like it even better than the card above!  What do you think?

I’m trying to earn the Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip to Greece in 2019, but have quite a ways to go!  Here you can see my progress!  Looks like I just passed Mexico!

To help me out, order Wild About Flowers or Lovely as a Tree online & I’ll throw in some Sponge Daubers or Stampin’ Sponges FREE to get you started!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure to head over to SSInkspiration to see what the other design team members came up with, and to play along with this fun challenge.

Going Green for St. Patrick’s Day

It’s almost St. Patrick’s Day so that’s our theme today at Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration.

For years when our girls were little, we were famous around the neighborhood for our St. Patrick’s Day Parties!  Basically, everything was green!  Green rice, mac & cheese, cupcakes, beer & soda.  And we’d always have an Irish Dance Show put on by the kids.  Miss those days…

I’ve decided to GO GREEN and use a Fun Fold called a Pleated Card.  This fold is a great way to show off your Designer Series Papers!

I didn’t find any Designer Series Paper in green that I was inspired about, so I started with this Black & White DSP, Petal Passion, & colored the flowers with my Stampin’ Blends.  I turned it over & decided I liked the back side even more!

I needed a little something for the corner so I cut out some flowers from Petals & More Thinlits Dies.  That bundle is my latest favorite!!  It’s pricey, but it has 2 stamp sets and you’ll love the way the images stamp and cut out!  And if you buy it this month, you’ll also earn a Sale-a-Bration item!  Only 2 more weeks of Sale-a-Bration!

Wait!  Here’s an exciting update on Sale-a-Bration!  They’re giving away even more for the last 2 weeks… including that beautiful thinlit seen in the photo below!  That’s one of the $100 items.   CLICK HERE TO SEE SALE-A-BRATION OFFERS!  Click on $50 or $100 button to see everything.

See what the other SSINK design team members made for St. Patrick’s Day by going to our blog.  And don’t forget to leave your comment – we love hearing from you.

Touches of Texture Get Well Cards

No automatic alt text available.

Happy Monday & welcome to the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration post where we’ll be focusing on Get Well Cards today.

For my cards I started with a kit that’s been sitting on my table for awhile.  It’s called Color Me Happy & came out with our Stampin’ Blends.  The colors are so pretty & the envelopes really step it up a notch!

This was super easy because the card base & white layer were ready to go.  I used a flower from Touches of Texture and sentiment from Flourishing Phrases, embossing them in silver.  Colored them in with my Stampin’ Blends & dressed it up with ribbon & Glitter Dots (love those!!).

Here’s a different look.  Found those cute vellum leaves that were left over from last month’s Paper Pumpkin!

Here’s a picture of the Color Me Happy Project Kit ($25- makes 16 cards).

Easter View Master Card

Welcome to the Easter Themed Blog Tour of some RemARKably Creative Stampers!  Today I’m excited to share a View Master Card with you!  Blast from the past!  Remember when you were little – scrolling through pictures on your View Master?

View Master Classic

My family used to go to this restaurant in Fresno after church once a month where I would happily browse through all the pictures on their View Master.  Animals, exotic places, movie stars…

So when I noticed the Stamp Set A Good Day, the cute little pictures made me think of a View Master.
