My favorite Suite from the Holiday Catalog is Quilted Christmas! The more I play around with it, the more ideas pop into my head!
This suite includes Christmas Quilt Stamp Set, Quilt Builder Framelits Dies, Quilted Christmas DSP, 1/4″ Ribbon and Stitched Felt Embellishments.
Recently I challenged my downline, the Maui Big Shots!, to start using their DBWS and to add an event to their blog. Ramona Corson and Mary Green met the challenge, so this is one of the gifts they’ll receive from me:
I just love the Pizza Boxes!! They’re sturdy and glossy white and simple to assemble. They are the perfect size to hold a set of 3 X 3 cards. And now there are 3 X 3 envelopes available for purchase!
Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team will be showcasing favorite Stamp Sets from the Holiday Catalog! My favorite, hands down, is Count My Blessings! This set has beautiful artwork and can be used any time of year!
My team, the Maui Big Shots!, had a stampin’ retreat over Labor Day and this is one of the projects we made:
This is called a Vellum Luminary Card, and it’s very simple to make! You put a battery- candle in the middle & it lights up. So pretty!! The sentiment and leaves are from Count My Blessings and the Designer Series Paper on the left side is Painted Autumn DSP.
I used a technique called “Stained Glass” on the vellum. CLICK HERE to see directions from a previous card.
A Vellum Luminary would be really nice for Christmas! Maybe you’ll see another one here in a month or two.
Don’t you just love the Holiday Catalog?!! Be sure & go to the SSINK PAGE for more Holiday Favorites!
Last week I needed a couple of cards in a hurry. Paper Pumpkin to the rescue! I popped open my latest box and found all the products needed to make some cute Thank You cards.
Sometimes I add a little extra to the cards. Here’s the same card with a little bling:
These Thank You’s were for Beth & Mary, my helpers for our Maui Big Shots! Retreat that we had last weekend! 2 1/2 days of total creativity, fun, friendship (talking story- as we say in Hawaii) & great food!! 12 of my downline attended & we stayed at a condo on the beach in Napili. I’m so blessed to have these women in my life- & what a fabulous time we had!!
Mary & Beth have been helping me plan & prep for about 4 months! I made them these special Retreat Survival Kits!
Here we are after unpacking the van- finally relaxing.
Thanks, you guys!!! I’m sure you’re pretty tired of my infamous “delegating skills”!! Ha!

Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspriation Team’s focus is on Retiring Designer Series Paper. I love lots of them and always have a hard time letting go!! Pop of Pink is so bright & pretty, so I’m choosing to focus on that today.
This beautiful paper is ON SALE FOR ONLY $7.80 (regular price $13).
There’s a new Suite in town!! Available June 1st- Eastern Palace Suite. And it’s gorgeous!! Especially the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies!
Fun new colors & the tassels are so cute! This is a Double Gate Fold Card that I made for my downline who promoted! My downline (Maui Big Shots!) are so enthusiastic & fun!! Love them all! This was for Linda Z, who just promoted to Bronze Elite & will earn 25% discounts now! Woohoo! The more you spend, the more you save, Linda!! That’s what I tell my husband, anyway!
Here’s a few of my downline, the Maui Big Shots! with some swaps. Linda’s in the middle, with the blue shirt.
Linda’s a classy gal with a business background, who’s also a Master Gardener! She’s busy with so many things and recently she’s started having her own card classes! Her cards are beautiful with great directions, and everyone has a great time! Pretty soon I’m thinking she’ll have her own blog…
I made this card with Linda in mind, thinking of how she’s transformed her whole yard into a beautiful garden!
You’re sure to see many more pictures with this pretty Designer Series Paper, Eastern Palace. Check out what ideas the other SSINK Team Members have come up with using this beautiful suite!
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!
Leave us a comment about our cards! I think they did a great job & love how different they all are!
I just love the Cupcakes & Carousel Designer Series Paper Stack! The colors & designs are just gorgeous!! And I really like working with the size of the paper stacks (6 X 6). The Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team is featuring this Suite today!
I needed another Congrats Card for a new team member (yea!!) and used Cupcakes & Carousel DSP Stack and the matching stamp set, Carousel Birthday. And just to tie it all together, I added some items from Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit!
I had to make a special card for this occasion, so I made this fun fold card. I think it’s called an “Explosion Card”.
This card is very simple to make! I’ll try to explain here:
Start with a 6 X 6 sheet of Designer Series Paper. Score at 3″. Turn & score at 3″.
Score diagonally down 1 side. Fold as shown in photos. Glue onto card base as shown.
Clear as mud?!! Hope you understand it! I plan to have a “Fun Folds Card Class” in March, so stay tuned…
