Just for fun, I sent out a few things to my downline, the Maui Big Shots! Their assignment was to make something using these supplies:
The paper was from Serene Scenery DSP Stack. They also used White Perfect Accents, Mini Paper Clips Combo Pack, & a circle from Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. It’s amazing how different all the cards turned out!!
I have a very creative & fun team & we love getting together to stamp & share ideas! I wish I would have taken a photo of the inside of Helen’s card…a huge bug-eating spider! Beth should get extra credit because it looks like she’s the only one to use her paper clip!
Here’s what I came up with:
I paired Crumb Cake with Dapper Denim & added Crushed Curry & Cajun Craze. The sentiment is from Layering Love.
Anyone interested in joining my team & becoming a “Maui Big Shot!” let me know! If you sign up before this month ends, you’ll receive 2 FREE STAMP SETS OF YOUR CHOICE! Most sign up to get the 20 – 25% discount. But there are so many more benefits! Friends, fun, & getting creative!

A couple of weeks ago I got over my head with a Stamping Class! It was immediately following a Downline Meeting with my group, The Maui Big Shots! I was basically prepped for my Christmas Gift Class, but had some texts & emails on Friday when I was at work. I knew I would have to prep for a few more, but I figured I could do it during class time.
I ended up having 15 – 16 people at class!! I still don’t even know! Great problem to have, huh?! I had no time at all to cut more things out. I’m so grateful to several of my downline who stayed to help!!
I learned 2 important things from this class, actually 3:
Always prep a little more than you need!! The more organized the better!!!
Don’t use the same supplies for different projects (unless you have duplicates). I was using Real Red Ink Pads in 2 of the projects (with 1 ink pad) & had to constantly look around for the ink pad!
Third thing…I can count on my friends!! 🙂
I just realized I should have made a pitchfork, not a broom. Oh, well. I know they’ll enjoy the little gifts they find inside! Thanks again, gals!!
Hope you enjoyed this fun card! If you want to make some fun Halloween things, Marylou & Beth (2 of my downline) are hosting a $5 Make & Take on October 5th in Kahului, Maui! Contact me if you’re interested. I know they’ll have some great projects!!
Today’s post at Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration is all about 3-D!! Cards are wonderful, but I especially love creating 3-D items!
I started with 3 items that I gave to my downline, The Maui Big Shots!, for their September challenge: Halloween Night Specialty DSP, Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper, and orange sequins left over from My Paper Pumpkin. Everyone is supposed to create something using these items (& whatever else they want to add). Here’s what I came up with:
A Baker’s Box! I plan to fill this with something very special for my newest recruit, Helen! She’s just the sweetest person and enthusiastic & full of ideas! You’ll have to wait a couple of weeks to see what the others did for this challenge.
In the meantime, be sure & take a look at what the SSINK Team has come up with! I’m always inspired by their creativity!
Last weekend my downline, the Maui Big Shots!, put on their first ever BIG EVENT… #imbringingbirthdaysback. They worked so hard & spent many hours planning, prepping, & decorating and the day was a huge success!! I need to send out a lot of Thank You’s and here’s one I came up with for today’s SSINK Challenge:
I had a little paper left over from the bags we made (shown off here…)
This beautiful paper is Floral Boutique DSP.
Stamps: Jar of Love
Inks: Night of Navy, Cucumber Crush, Flirty Flamingo
Paper: Night of Navy (4 1/4 X 11 card base, scored at 2 3/4 & 8 1/4), Flirty Flamingo (2 1/2 X 4…cut 2), Floral Boutique DSP (3 3/4 X 2 1/4…cut 2), Whisper White for inside (5 1/4 X 4)
