SSINKIC #43 for Easter

The March Card Challenge for the SSINK Team had me reaching for the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies.  And I needed a bunny!  Found an adorable one in a baby set called Made With Love!

Isn’t he sweet?!!  And I’m loving that glimmer paper!!  You can get it FREE by spending $50 during Sale-A-Bration, which ends March 31st.

The Designer Series Paper I used is Succulent Garden DSP.  Gorgeous colors!

Be sure & check out what the other Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team Members have done with this cute sketch!

Sale-A-Bration Favorite!

There are so many great Sale-A-Bration Items, it was hard to choose a favorite!  I love the Delicate Details and Avant Garden, but my current favorite is Tasty Trucks!  Totally cute and fun to play around with!!

Stampin’ Up! has so many items that coordinate!  This cute Designer Series Paper is called Tasty Treats and the sentiment on the bottom is from Sprinkles of Life.

Here I made a similar card, but changed it into a Baby Card!

Isn’t that fun?!!  It started with a mistake where I smeared the ice cream cones & then had to cover them up with something…a kitty!  Mistakes often end up with cuter cards, don’t you think?!

The bad news is…you can’t buy this stamp set!

The good news is…you can get it for FREE!!

Just place any $50 order during Sale-A-Bration (now through March 31st) and you get to select an item from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog!

Barnyard Babies!

One of our Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team gals, Tobe Buffenbarger, just had a baby!!  Quentin is his name & he’s adorable!!

I love giving books for baby gifts, so Quentin’s getting one that was a favorite of my girls, Moo, Baa, La La La! by Sandra Boynton.  This book was my inspiration for this card:

I knew I needed this set, living in Upcountry Maui.  Most of you think of Maui as beautiful beaches.  There is that!  But when I take a walk in the morning I’m greeted by lots of chickens, cows, sheep, goats, and even an occasional pig that’s loose!  I love living up here because it’s a lot cooler at this elevation and we have a beautiful view of Haleakala Crater.

Here’s 2 of my buddies looking for a papaya handout!

Hope you enjoyed my card today!  And Quentin, I hope you love your new book!  Be sure & check out the SSINK Team’s other baby cards for Quentin!

Quick & Easy Card for SSINK Design Team

It’s actually difficult to come up with a simple card!  I tend to keep adding embellishments & layers.  But today the Stylin’ Stampin’ Gals are posting “Simple Cards”.

This type of card is really simple but the effect is so nice!  I call it a Negative Image Card.

Happy Easter!  Hope you’re having a wonderful day with friends & family.  Ours won’t be too exciting because the girls are on the mainland & we miss them…but we’ll make the most of it!  Pat & I are blessed to have Mom living next door in our cottage, so we’ll have a nice dinner after church.

Wanted to show you my Easter Card:

I had a few leftover cards prepped & here’s what I made:

Create with Cheryl Big News

I thought this turned out cute!  Used the stamp set Big News and Baby’s First Framelits.

Create with Cheryl Happy Birthday

I had fun with this one!  And everyone needs birthday cards!  #imbringingbirthdaysback

Happy Birthday from the hostess set, Happy Birthday, Everyone, is the perfect size!  Then I punched out balloons using Party Punch Pack and some silver thread, bound together with the bow from Square Pillow Box Framelits.

Almost the same…just using scraps I found on my desk.  This flower was from Flower Fair Framelits.

One last card to share.  I received this beautiful card from one of my downline, Louella. Create with Cheryl Louella's card

Isn’t it gorgeous?!  I can see that Wink of Stella on the flowers…pretty!!

May the promise of Easter fill you with renewed faith, hope, & joy.

Have a blessed Easter!
