Pop of Pink Favorite Retiring Designer Series Paper

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).

ORDER HERE before it’s gone!  There’s also Washi Tape to match!

I chose this paper to make a card for one of my downline.  I think of Francine as a Melon Mambo type of girl… flashy, fun, enthusiastic!  Francine just promoted to Bronze Elite!  25% discounts!!!  Woohoo!

Here’s the card I made to celebrate her achievement:

This is called a Joy Fold Card.  Here’s what it looks like opened up:

Fun card!  I’m sure I’ll be featuring this in a class very soon…

Here’s Francine with some of her swaps.  We look forward to Francine’s swaps because they usually are 3-D and contain candy!!

 

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure & head over to THIS PAGE to see the favorite retiring Designer Series Papers from the rest of the SSINK Team!

Eastern Palace Suite Double Gate Fold Card

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!

 

Maui Big Shots! Fun Challenge

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!

Cupcakes & Carousel Suite Congrats

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…

Don’t stop here!  Be sure & check out the creative ideas from the rest of the SSINK Team!

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.
