I think this month’s page is my favorite! I love the way these watercolors made the pretty background- just a stamp on top…& done! I found the idea for this from Michelle Quinno at shellsq.blogspot.com. Thanks, Michelle!
Watercolored using Aquapainter: Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, & Tip Top Taupe
Stamped on top using Early Espresso. Stamp sets are Totally Trees & Endless Thanks.
I have so much to be thankful for! The first thing that comes to mind is how thankful I am for the many dear friends I’ve made through stampin’!
Hello everyone! Welcome to the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration day when we’ll be welcoming baby Hunter!! Our teammate, Pamela Wu, just had a baby 1 week ago!
Isn’t he just perfect?!!
I made him this Sampler for his room!
It’s mainly an ocean theme with a taste of Hawaii (shave ice & pineapple). I chose these colors (Emerald Envy, Crushed Curry, Basic Black, Flirty Flamingo, Sahara Sand) to go with the Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper.
These cute images are from Cookie-Cutter Halloween! Love that set! The holiday season is officially here! I’m determined to stay on top of things this year!! We’ll see what happens.
I have lots of fun classes scheduled in the next few months! You can always see what events I’m having by clicking on CLASSES & EVENTS on the top of my blog. Try to join us at some of the classes this month!
Be sure to head over to Anne & Crystal’s blogs to see their October calendars!
Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team will be showcasing favorite Stamp Sets from the Holiday Catalog! My favorite, hands down, is Count My Blessings! This set has beautiful artwork and can be used any time of year!
My team, the Maui Big Shots!, had a stampin’ retreat over Labor Day and this is one of the projects we made:
This is called a Vellum Luminary Card, and it’s very simple to make! You put a battery- candle in the middle & it lights up. So pretty!! The sentiment and leaves are from Count My Blessings and the Designer Series Paper on the left side is Painted Autumn DSP.
I used a technique called “Stained Glass” on the vellum. CLICK HERE to see directions from a previous card.
A Vellum Luminary would be really nice for Christmas! Maybe you’ll see another one here in a month or two.
Don’t you just love the Holiday Catalog?!! Be sure & go to the SSINK PAGE for more Holiday Favorites!
I really love paisleys! This set, Paisleys & Posies, has images that could keep you busy coloring for hours. But I didn’t have “hours”, so I just stamped them in some great colors: Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, & Smokey Slate. And the sentiment is there to remind me that I’m blessed. Sometimes I need to be reminded…
Thanks for stopping by! Remember to be thankful & grateful!
Now head over to see what Anne & Crystal have come up with for September!
Seaside Shore has some nice, detailed fish images, along with seaweed & rope. This is my stamp for the August calendar page.
I’ve used a Masking Technique to stamp the bottom fish in Calypso Coral, then cover him with a post-it note that I’ve cut out in that shape. Then I was able to stamp seaweed right over it without messing up the fish. Other colors: Dapper Denim, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky.
Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspriation Team won’t be making cards. In fact, we’ll be focusing on ANYTHING BUT A CARD!
I’m excited to show you a project that will help you organize your life! My birthdays are all over the place… my computer, calendar, on scraps of paper. Now I have a system to remember birthdays as well as a place to tuck the cards away that are perfect for a special person!
This project was CASED from 2 people: Vicki Wizniuk, who has the calendar inserts on her blog,and Erika Cerwin who came up with this great idea!! They each have tons of great ideas!!
So each month has a pocket for the calendar inserts. Turn the group over & you have the last 6 months of the year!
I’m offering 2 classes next month so that you can make your own Birthday Boxes!

The more I use these new In Colors, the more I just LOVE THEM!!
I was asked by my BFF Susie (my Honolulu buddy from single days…) to make a special card for her friend who was retiring from teaching. Special card makes me think: Card in a Box!
Aren’t those colors gorgeous?!! And I thought the chair & drink were the quintessential “retirement”! The beautiful Designer Series Paper is called Naturally Eclectic. I paired it with the In Color Designer Series Paper called Fresh Florals.
The sentiments from Wild About Flowers mainly focus on retirement. Notice how the word retirement is 2-toned. That was simple to do because the word retirement is a separate stamp. I stamped it in Lemon Lime Twist, then just dipped the bottom in Fresh Fig.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Hope you’re inspired to play around with some of the great new In Colors! Be sure & continue the HOP for more 2017-2019 In Color Ideas!
