Going Green for St. Patrick’s Day

It’s almost St. Patrick’s Day so that’s our theme today at Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration.

For years when our girls were little, we were famous around the neighborhood for our St. Patrick’s Day Parties!  Basically, everything was green!  Green rice, mac & cheese, cupcakes, beer & soda.  And we’d always have an Irish Dance Show put on by the kids.  Miss those days…

I’ve decided to GO GREEN and use a Fun Fold called a Pleated Card.  This fold is a great way to show off your Designer Series Papers!

I didn’t find any Designer Series Paper in green that I was inspired about, so I started with this Black & White DSP, Petal Passion, & colored the flowers with my Stampin’ Blends.  I turned it over & decided I liked the back side even more!

I needed a little something for the corner so I cut out some flowers from Petals & More Thinlits Dies.  That bundle is my latest favorite!!  It’s pricey, but it has 2 stamp sets and you’ll love the way the images stamp and cut out!  And if you buy it this month, you’ll also earn a Sale-a-Bration item!  Only 2 more weeks of Sale-a-Bration!

Wait!  Here’s an exciting update on Sale-a-Bration!  They’re giving away even more for the last 2 weeks… including that beautiful thinlit seen in the photo below!  That’s one of the $100 items.   CLICK HERE TO SEE SALE-A-BRATION OFFERS!  Click on $50 or $100 button to see everything.

See what the other SSINK design team members made for St. Patrick’s Day by going to our blog.  And don’t forget to leave your comment – we love hearing from you.

Party Panda for March

Well, March really snuck up on me!  Do you feel the same?  I am kind of glad February is over!  I spent much of February with my husband who was in the hospital.  Actually 2 hospitals.  Hopefully this little panda represents what my March will be like!

My March calendar features the Party Panda.   This is a really fun set you can get only through Sale-a-Bration.  Spend $50 and get this set FREE.

Sale-a-Bration runs for one more month!  See the Sale-a-Bration Catalog HERE!

Sale-a-Bration 2nd Release for SSINK & FMS325

Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration

Today at Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration we’ll be showing you some 2nd release Sale-a-Bration items!  Stampin’ Up! just released more FREE items with every $50 you spend!!  I’ll be showing you a card made with Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper, which was a 2nd release Sale-a-Bration item!  This paper is so pretty as is, but I wanted to try adding a little color to it using my brayer.

I was trying to come up with an ombre look.  This was really simple- just brayed it (is that a word?) with Marina Mist, Island Indigo, & then Night of Navy.

I came up with this great card layout using the challenge from Freshly Made Sketches #325.

Here’s the inside:

You’ll find the supply list at the bottom of my post.  And, this is one of the cards we’ll be making at my Cards, Etc. Class on Saturday, Feb. 24th at 2pm and again on Monday, Feb. 26th at 10am.

Be sure and stop by the SSINK Page to see what more 2nd release Sale-a-Bration items!

The star of my blog post today is this charming little bird from Bird Banter!  The birds in this set all have different personalities.  Just love them!  Found the idea for this card on Pinterest, made by Carolynn Saunder.  And this was perfect for my Stampin’ Blends class!  We had fun coloring those birds.

Here’s the details to make my card:

  • Stamps:  Bird Banter
  • Ink:  Momento, Real Red & Night of
  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White(5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4), Real Red (5 3/8 x 4 1/8), Night of Navy (5 1/4 x 2), Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper -FREE Sale-a-Bration item! (5 1/4 X 2), Real Red & Whisper White scraps

One more reason I love this stamp set…

I try so hard to be organized, but I’m always running behind!!  So this is perfect for all those late birthday cards.

New Catalog Launch Class-Party this Sunday

I’ve had several requests to see the projects we’ll be making this Sunday at my New Catalog Launch Party.  It was hard to narrow it down- there are so many new things I just LOVE!!  But I’ll show you the three cards we’ll be making here:

This gorgeous set is a FREE SALE-A-BRATION set!  Just love it!  The sparkly ribbon is from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog also.  I found the idea for this on Facebook and can’t figure out who to credit it to!  If you know the original creator, please comment so that I can give her (or him) proper credit!

This was a Make & Take we did at On Stage in November.

You’ll get a chance to try out the Stampin’ Write Markers vs. the new Stampin’ Blends.

I know!!!  This paper is so cute!!  The card base & envelopes are also a FREE Sale-a-Bration item.

And there’s more…  I want to clarify that this isn’t the usual Open House where you come & go.  This is a Party/Class where you’ll pay $15 to make 4-5 projects, demonstrations & displays & lots of door prizes!  Fun!  So be sure you arrive at 12 noon so you have time to make everything!  Please RSVP!

Have a great day!
