I have the most fun & creative friends that come over & stamp (& eat!) with me each month. Here’s some pictures from our Christmas Party. We look forward to the gift exchange all year!
If you’d like to join club, now is the time!! We meet once a month at my place in Haiku, Maui, and make different projects. You commit to spending just $25/month and you get to be hostess when your month comes around- which means free stuff!! Let me know if you’d like to join! You can quit whenever you want… no obligation if your life gets too busy. You can also just give it a try! Just place a $25 order that day.
Here’s some cards from our Ugly Sweater Card Contest. Debby is the winner of $30 in SU Products! Her card is on the left. Congratulations, Debby!
Today we have a fun challenge for you to try… Masking or Stenciling!
I made a stencil by cutting out a tree using Perfect Pines Framelits Dies. Using sponge daubers, I sponged the tree with Old Olive & Pear Pizzazz. Decided it needed more color, so I reached for Rose Red. That’s one of those colors I forget about…but I just love it!
Isn’t that fun?!! I sponged the tree on This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper.
The star is punched from Blossom Punch. I thought it would be cute with a bird, because of the music notes!
The bird was part of the Tree Builder Punch.
Which one do you like best? The star or the bird?
I’m soooooo behind! Ha! I’m afraid my friends are getting New Year’s Cards this year. But it’s all good. I’m just stretching out the fun.
It was fun to take a break this morning & make this card. I can’t wait to see what the other Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team has made for this challenge! CLICK HERE to see more ideas!
Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team will be showcasing TAGS! I’m showing off a tag that I stuck on top of some cute Mason Jars that I sold at our Maui Big Shots! Craft Fair this last weekend. The sentiment is from Oh What Fun. I think I’ve used that set 100 times in the past 2 months… Along with the Layering Circles Framelits Dies!
You can see I just fussy cut the banner & popped it up using Dimensionals.
Here’s a picture of some of my team at the Craft Fair. I’m very blessed to have such a fun, hard-working, supportive team!!
Guess what I just learned how to do?!! Picture Collages where I can feature all my favorite “go-together” colors!!
I often have customers ask my how to pick out colors that go together to make a card. By clicking on the category, COLORS!, on my side bar, you’ll see many beautiful color schemes to choose from. Ok. Today you’ll only see one. But I’m inspired!!! So I plan to keep adding lots & lots of these!
Please leave me a comment if you like this feature, & I’ll be sure to keep adding more all the time. Thanks. I love all your comments & suggestions! Hope you’re having a great weekend & getting some play time in.
You’re in for a treat today! The Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team Members are focusing on their favorite bundles from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.
The first thing I knew I was ordering was the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set & Cookie Cutter Builder Punch Bundle! This set comes with Santa, a bear, an Eskimo, Gingerbread Man & a Reindeer…and all can be punched out with one punch! Love it!!

After seeing how cute this came out, I decided to decorate a box to go along with it. To be filled with goodies! I found these White Gift Boxes (3 X 3 X 3) in the Holiday Catalog that are sturdy & food safe & they have an acetate sleeve that slides on! That is so cool because you can make these ahead of time & fill them later on when you’re done baking.
