Sale-a-Bration 2nd Release for SSINK & FMS325

Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration

Today at Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration we’ll be showing you some 2nd release Sale-a-Bration items!  Stampin’ Up! just released more FREE items with every $50 you spend!!  I’ll be showing you a card made with Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper, which was a 2nd release Sale-a-Bration item!  This paper is so pretty as is, but I wanted to try adding a little color to it using my brayer.

I was trying to come up with an ombre look.  This was really simple- just brayed it (is that a word?) with Marina Mist, Island Indigo, & then Night of Navy.

I came up with this great card layout using the challenge from Freshly Made Sketches #325.

Here’s the inside:

You’ll find the supply list at the bottom of my post.  And, this is one of the cards we’ll be making at my Cards, Etc. Class on Saturday, Feb. 24th at 2pm and again on Monday, Feb. 26th at 10am.

Be sure and stop by the SSINK Page to see what more 2nd release Sale-a-Bration items!

 

 

Sale-a-Bration or Occasions Catalog Favorite for Kylie’s International Blog Hop

I’m excited to be a part of Kylie’s International Blog Highlight today, where you’ll be seeing lots of favorites from the Occasions & Sale-a-Bration Catalogs!

Today I’m showing you another Shaker Card!  The fun papers in Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper are so festive & are perfect with a little confetti added!

Picture Perfect Party 6" x 6" (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Designer Series Paper

The artist easel is from Painter’s Palette.  That’s been stuck away in my closet for too long!  Such a cute set!

Here’s another Shaker Card.  Which one do you like best?  I like the candle one, except that you have to “fussy cut” it.  I don’t have a lot of patience for that.

I would love if you could take the time to vote for my card at Kylie Bertucci’s host page for this blog highlight.  The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop so please vote for my project (#6)!   To vote, click on the button below, go to the gallery, then hover over the picture of the card until the little heart turns red.  You can vote by clicking on the icon below:

Lions, Tigers & Bears, Oh My! Cards Featuring Pretty Kitty

Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for February 2018. This month our theme is Lions, Tigers & Bears, Oh My! Cards Featuring Animals!  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Cheryl Hamilton @ www.createwithcheryl.me or may have come from the person previous to me on the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

Today’s blog hop is all about animals!  My Bella & Friends stamp set has gotten a lot of use, but I haven’t used Pretty Kitty until today.  Here I go…

Stamped the kitty on Shimmer Paper using Memento Ink and then colored it in using Stampin’ Markers.  I chose the colors based on this weeks challenge from Global Design Project #GDP125.

Don’t you just love that “amazing” cutout?!  You can get Celebrate You Thinlits FREE with any $100 order now until the end of March during Sale-a-Bration.

Winter Blues with Petal Palette

Here’s a card that’s sure to cure your Winter Blues!

I just loved the way this turned out!  The paper is Petal Passion DSP that has been colored using my Stampin’ Blends.  There’s really no right or wrong way to use the Blends- just experiment!

This card is a Fun Fold called a Gate Card.  Very simple to make.  Give it a try!  For the card base, start with cardstock cut at 4 1/4 X 11 and score each end at 2 3/4″.  Then fold each side in towards the middle.

Take a look at the back of the paper after I colored it!  I almost like this as much as the front!!  What do you think?

Gave this card to my sweet husband for Valentine’s Day.  He’s been in the hospital in Arizona for 2 weeks- came back to Maui & had 1 nice day at home then had to go back to Maui Memorial ICU with more complications.  Hopefully he’ll be coming home today!

Thank you to everyone for your kindness and prayers during this difficult time.  My stampin’ friends are so wonderful- love you all!!  I’ve had people help prep my classes for me, mow my lawn, bring food, & loads of people praying & encouraging us.  We are truly blessed!

Valentine`s Day is the second most popular day of the year for sending cards, second only to Christmas. There are approximately 1 billion Valentine`s Day cards exchanged every year in the U.S. alone.  I prefer handmade cards where you can see all the love that’s put into making them.

For my valentines, I’ve made a little bag.  Fill it with candy or make a little pull-out note like shown above.

Love this bright, fun paper that’s a FREE SALE-A-BRATON ITEM.  For every $50 you spend choose a FREE Sale-a-Bration item!  CLICK HERE to browse the catalog.

Decided to give candy to my team at our meeting yesterday instead of a note.  They already know I love them!
