Window Box Peek-a-Boo Birthday Card

It’s birthday time for the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team!  This card features the new In Colors in a big way!

CASEed this beautiful card from Mary Alice Bellis, who makes some gorgeous cards, by the way!  This card was just what I was looking for to add to my In Color Club samples for June!

I just used my sponge daubers to add some color behind the cut out part.  Each card is unique & so pretty!

There’s still time to join my In Color Club!  $40/month & you’ll receive all the In Color supplies for that month plus 4 cards to give you lots of ideas!  I’d love to have you join even if you’re not on Maui!  I’ll send you a different set of colors each month.  I’ll have you pay postage please (around $7).  The club lasts just 5 months… 1 month for each In Color.

Be sure & check out what other BIRTHDAY IDEAS the other SSINK gals have for you!

Going Eclectic for SSINKCS46

Here’s the SSINK Card Sketch 46 for June.  I love how these sketches make me come up with my own design, instead of just searching Pinterest (although I do love Pinterest!).

I could have stamped some splotches on the upper left, but I decided to try out my new Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies.  Absolutely LOVE these!!

Here’s what I came up with:

Isn’t that cutout fun!!  And I could use the little diamond shapes for a shaker card!  The ribbon is Fresh Fig Finely Woven Ribbon (1/2″) and it’s really soft & easy to work with.

Here’s a tip for stamping clear images when you’re using tiny fonts:  I tried stamping the sentiment using my Fresh Fig Ink Pad, but it was very “juicy” and kept filling in the l’s and o’s.  Then I tried just using the brush side of my Fresh Fig marker and it worked perfectly!

You’ll find all the supplies at the bottom of this post.  Who else loves these thinlits dies?!!  This will be one of the cards we’ll be making for the July In Color Club where the starring color will be…FRESH FIG!  The club members will be receiving everything Fresh Fig in July… Cardstock, Ink Pad, refill, ribbon, marker, and the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack!  Plus bows & glitter shapes just for signing up!

Would you like to join us?  There’s still time!  It’s a 5 month club where we focus on 1 In Color each month.  For $40/month, you’ll have ALL THE IN COLOR SUPPLIES by October!  If you can’t attend the club meetings, I’ll make up the cards for you & send them over with your In Color items for the month.

Now go to the SSINK Card Challenge 46 to see other samples.  And just for fun, please enter our challenge!  Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Thanks for stopping by today!

In Color Club Featuring: Berry Burst!

I’m so excited to get started with my In Color Club!!  This club will go for 5 months only… 1 class for each new In Color.

Today I want to give you a preview of one of the cards we’ll be making in June (AKA Berry Burst Month!).

I’m loving this color!!  There’s also a touch of Powder Pink & Fresh Fig on there if you look closely.  Did you notice there’s no stamping on this card?  Don’t worry, we’ll do plenty of stamping on the other cards we make!  I CASED this card from Brian King, making just a few changes.  Thanks for the idea, Brian!!  All supplies listed at the end of this post.

There’s still time to join my In Color Club!  $40/month will get you ALL THE IN COLOR SUPPLIES by the time October comes around!  And I’m opening this up to my on line customers who can’t be with us on Maui!  $40/month (plus shipping) and I’ll send you the supplies along with the cards (prepped or finished up, whichever you prefer).

On Maui, I have 2 clubs set up, so you can attend either one (5 months- June – October)

  • 3rd Sunday of each month at 1pm (beginning June 12th) or
  • 2nd Monday of each month at 10am (beginning June 18th)

Feel free to attend some Mondays & some Sundays if that works better for you.
