Favorite Occasions Catalog Item for Kylie’s International Blog Hop

I’m excited to be a part of Kylie’s International Blog Highlight today, where you’ll be seeing lots of favorites from the Occasions & Sale-a-Bration Catalogs!    Here’s the Designer Series Paper I can’t get enough of…Painted With Love.  It’s just gorgeous!  Shiny with beautiful textures throughout!

I’ve decided to try a new Fun Fold, called a Wiper Card.  It’s actually pretty simple- there’s just a flap inside that pops up when the card is opened.  Cute!  The first time I saw this card was when I swapped at On Stage in Salt Lake City with Audra Monk, who’s on my Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hoppin’ Team.  Thanks Audra!

I used Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out the square.  Did you notice the pretty vellum leaves?  That’s from Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit.  All products listed at the bottom of this post, and it’s a great time to shop!  Sale-a-Bration Time!  That means you get a FREE item for every $50 you spend!

I would love if you could take the time to vote for my card at Kylie Bertucci’s host page for this blog highlight.  The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop so please vote for my project (#6)!   To vote, click on the button below, go to the gallery, then hover over the picture of the card until the little heart turns red.  You can vote by clicking on the icon below:

If you live in the US and don’t already have a demonstrator I would love to become yours!  And if you need a copy of the Occasions Catalog, email me at createwithcheryl808@gmail.com.

SSINK Case the Design Team Member: Tobe Buffenbarger

 

Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team is CASE-ing our team member, Tobe Buffenbarger.  Tobe makes beautiful cards and here’s her card that I chose to CASE:

IMG_1932.jpg

I liked this card, mainly because of the Washi Tape!  And just the whole layout.  Here’s what I came up with:

This is the new Specialty Printed With Love Designer Series Paper!  So shiny & beautiful!  And I love how easy it is to coordinate all the Stampin’ Up! products!  Did you notice that sparkly Calypso Coral ribbon?  You can get that FREE with Sale-a-Bration when you spend just $50.  It’s actually a set of 3 different ribbons! Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay, & Calypso Coral, all shimmery.

Head over to the SSINK Design Page to see some other ideas CASED from Tobe!

Image may contain: text

We’ve got a fun Color Challenge for you today at SSINK!  Sale-a-Bration’s almost here (2 more days!!) so I’m using a pretty stamp that you can get FREE with a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration!  It’s called Heartfelt Blooms and has a very realistic look- very pretty!

I just love the shimmer ribbon!  And the embossing folders!  This one is called Garden Trellis.

This is a simple fun fold card.  Take a look when it’s opened…

#SSINK Doilies & Lace

Good morning!  I love Fridays because the weekend is almost here.  This weekend I look forward to New Years and plan to spend lots of time decorating my beautiful Love Today Planner Kit!  Washi Tape, colored pens, and brainstorming about my goals for 2018!  You can order one HERE & get yourself organized with this inspiring journal!

Today I’m showing you a card using doilies & lace!  It’s fun to browse around Pinterest looking for ideas for Vintage cards, but I’m not sure this qualifies as “Vintage” with these bright colors.   What do you think?

I LOVE the colors in this card!  Lemon Lime Twist & Pool Party.  And the more I use the Quilted Christmas Bundle, the more I like it!!  The Designer Series Paper is Painted Autumn.  I colored the Rhinestone using Pool Party Stampin’ Blends.

Below are easy ordering links for the products used on today’s card:

SSINK 3 X 3 Cards in a Quilted Christmas Pizza Box

Aloha and welcome to another Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration post!  Today we’ll be showing you our ideas for 3 X 3 gift cards.  3 X 3 cards are simple and very useful.  I participated in a 3 X 3 swap at On Stage in November and got tons of great ideas!!  Here’s what I came up with using the Quilted Christmas Suite:

I started with the Pizza Box!  No surprise there!!  Perfect size for the 3 X 3 cards.

Open it up…

Isn’t that fun & inviting?!  It’s filled with 3 X 3 cards with matching envelopes.

I’ve had so much fun with this Suite!  There’s so much you can do with it.

You might be searching around for that star in the middle.  That’s from Trim Your Stocking Thinlits.  All ingredients listed below.

Time to head over to the SSINK PAGE for more 3 X 3 ideas!

 

Tutti-Frutti for #GDP118

Today I’m stepping away from Christmas for a bit to play around with some new products from the Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration.  I started with a sketch challenge from Global Design Project to help get me started.  Here’s my card:

 

This card starts off using FREE PRODUCT that you can get at Sale-a-Bration time- Tutti Frutti Cards & Envelopes!  16 card bases & decorated envelopes, 4 each of 4 designs.  The Tutti Frutti Suite has so many fun coordinating products!  Notice the Washi Tape and the Sequins… these are ADHESIVE BACKED!  No more glue messes!!  I’m pretty excited about these & think you’ll love them, too.
