Totally Trees for November

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’!

Now head over to see what Crystal & Anne have done for November!

SSINKspiration Welcome Baby!

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!

Image may contain: one or more people, people sleeping and baby

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.

A few of these images are from Message in a Bottle Stamp Set.

If you have any questions or comments, please leave me a note below!  I’d love to hear from you!

Be sure and go to our SSINK PAGE to see how the others have welcomed Baby Hunter!  You’ll find some adorable baby ideas there!

Baby Framed Art

One of my dear friends is expecting a grand-baby very soon.  She’s requested a framed piece for baby’s name… with a hula girl!  I’ve been throwing this idea around & procrastinating for at least a month!  But baby will soon be here!

So yesterday I started playing around with the idea, trying to make it for boy or girl.  Here’s what I came up with:

I just love it & hope she does, too!!  You may be asking, “Where’s the hula girl?”  I know!  I’ve made a special one for her that she’ll have to put in the center square along with baby’s name.  I could have made a hula skirt for the mermaid!  Just thought of that!

Here’s a few closeup’s:

Definitely a Hawaii Baby Theme here!

If you’d like to make one, I’ll be offering a class soon!

August Seaside Shore

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.

Be sure & swim on over to Crystal & Anne’s blogs…

Flying High in May

Going in a hot air balloon is on my bucket list!  Maybe over Napa Valley or Santa Fe.  There’s a cute stamp set called Lift Me Up that I’ve found a lot of use for!  It comes in a bundle with Up & Away Thinlits Dies!

Have you ever gone up in a balloon?  Where did you go?  I’m “up” for suggestions!  Ha!!

Be sure & check out what Crystal & Anne have created for their May calendar pages!

He Is Risen Banner for Easter

Allelujah!  Christ is risen!  Easter is the most important celebration for Christians and I wanted to make a banner to remind me and others in my home about this wonderful event!

It’s challenging for me to get a good photo of this project, but I hope you get the idea. Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper makes a pretty background for my banner.  I just added some coordinating cardstock, some Easter Stamps and butterfly punches.  Don’t you just love how all the Stampin’ Up! products coordinate so nicely!

Here’s a closer look:

Notice the sparkle on the cloth draped over the cross!  Wink of Stella!

Love the Butterflies Thinlits, especially with a Vellum butterfly on top!


The supplies for this project are listed at the bottom of this post.  Most of them are RETIRING PRODUCTS, so be sure to grab them now before they’re gone!!

Be sure and check out what the other SSINK Designers have made for this Easter Theme!
