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!

 

 

Lions, Tigers & Bears, Oh My! Cards Featuring Pretty Kitty

Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for February 2018. This month our theme is Lions, Tigers & Bears, Oh My! Cards Featuring Animals!  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Cheryl Hamilton @ www.createwithcheryl.me or may have come from the person previous to me on the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

Today’s blog hop is all about animals!  My Bella & Friends stamp set has gotten a lot of use, but I haven’t used Pretty Kitty until today.  Here I go…

Stamped the kitty on Shimmer Paper using Memento Ink and then colored it in using Stampin’ Markers.  I chose the colors based on this weeks challenge from Global Design Project #GDP125.

Don’t you just love that “amazing” cutout?!  You can get Celebrate You Thinlits FREE with any $100 order now until the end of March during Sale-a-Bration.

Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don’t want to miss. Remember that currently, you are on my blog – Cheryl Hamilton @ Create With Cheryl, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next on the list.

Alaska Achievers Blog Hop Bird Banter

Aloha & welcome to another Alaska Achievers Monthly Blog Hop.  I’m so excited to be a part of this group of hard working & talented demonstrators who have all earned the Stampin’ Up! incentive trip to Alaska!!  Follow along the hop and you’re sure to find many wonderful & creative new ideas!

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
  • Accessories:  Night of Navy 1/2″ Gingham Ribbon, Enamel Shapes, Layering Ovals Thinlits Dies, Petal Burst Embossing Folder, Stampin’ Blends
  • Tips:  Cut the scallop circle out of the Real Red background!  They’ll never know…

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.

Be sure & continue on the Alaska Achievers Blog Hop, where you’ll find lots of great ideas!

.

Card Details:

  • Stamps:  Amazing You (Sale-a-Bration FREE set), Cake Soiree

Look at the 2 cards.  Do you see anything different?  I stamped the 2nd one with Always Artichoke, instead of Momento Ink!  And I think it looks great!  They recommend Momento, but I’m excited to experiment with other inks!

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.

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!
