Easter View Master Card

Welcome to the Easter Themed Blog Tour of some RemARKably Creative Stampers!  Today I’m excited to share a View Master Card with you!  Blast from the past!  Remember when you were little – scrolling through pictures on your View Master?

View Master Classic

My family used to go to this restaurant in Fresno after church once a month where I would happily browse through all the pictures on their View Master.  Animals, exotic places, movie stars…

So when I noticed the Stamp Set A Good Day, the cute little pictures made me think of a View Master.

Just turn the circle with your finger to see more images!

All supplies listed below…except brads!!  I miss my brads, Stampin’ Up!

If you’d like to make this fun card with me, come to one of my March clubs!  It’s just $15 to attend as a guest or FREE if you place a $25 order that day.  You never know, you could get hooked like the rest of us & decide to join up!

Club dates for March

  • Saturday, March 10th at 1 pm
  • Sunday, March 11th at 1 pm (TODAY)
  • Monday, March 12th at 10 am

Please comment below.  Tell me if you had a View Master, or if you totally don’t know what I’m talking about!  Ha!

Be sure and continue on the Blog Hop where you’re sure to find plenty of ideas for papercrafting for Easter.

 

Stampin’ Blends Showcase

Say hello to a world of colorful creativity with Stampin’ Up!s premier alcohol markers, Stampin’ Blends!  These high quality, dual-tip markers come in 12 exclusive Stampin’ Up! colors, each with a light and dark shade.  Not an artist?  You are now!  These markers make it so easy to blend colors and create lovely works of art.  There’s something so relaxing and fun about coloring!  I’m offering a Stampin’ Blends Club that I posted about HERE.  Let me know if you’re interested!

.

Card Details:

  • Stamps:  Amazing You (Sale-a-Bration FREE set), Cake Soiree
  • Ink:  Momento & Always Artichoke
  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White Base (8 1/2 X 5 1/2, score at 4 1/4), Always Artichoke (4 1/8 X 5 3/8), Sweet Soiree Specialty DSP (3 X 3 7/8), Whisper White (2 X 3 7/8), Calypso Coral
  • Accessories:  Layering Ovals Thinlits, Stampin’ Blends

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!

Which one do you like best?  Momento or Always Artichoke?  I can’t decide…

Let me know if you’d like to join the Stampin’ Blends Club!  I have one you can do my mail, and I’ll send you all the supplies & directions.  We’ll be making this card on Monday, Jan 22nd in Kahului after work, so maybe you can join us!

SSINK CASE the Catalog

Why don’t I do this more often?!!  I’m talking about CASE-ing the catalog.  I’ve been wanting to play around with my new stamp set, So Many Shells, so I went to page 38 in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.

Well, not a big surprise, but I can’t find my Mini Treat Bag Thinlits!!  It’s here somewhere!  So I made a card instead, & LOVE IT!  What do you think?

I just love 2-step stampin’!  And I love that new Ombre Ribbon!!  Supplies listed at the bottom of this post.

 

For more great ideas from the catalog, head over to the SSINK PAGE!

Window Box Peek-a-Boo Birthday Card

It’s birthday time for the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team!  This card features the new In Colors in a big way!

CASEed this beautiful card from Mary Alice Bellis, who makes some gorgeous cards, by the way!  This card was just what I was looking for to add to my In Color Club samples for June!

I just used my sponge daubers to add some color behind the cut out part.  Each card is unique & so pretty!

There’s still time to join my In Color Club!  $40/month & you’ll receive all the In Color supplies for that month plus 4 cards to give you lots of ideas!  I’d love to have you join even if you’re not on Maui!  I’ll send you a different set of colors each month.  I’ll have you pay postage please (around $7).  The club lasts just 5 months… 1 month for each In Color.

Be sure & check out what other BIRTHDAY IDEAS the other SSINK gals have for you!

Going Eclectic for SSINKCS46

Here’s the SSINK Card Sketch 46 for June.  I love how these sketches make me come up with my own design, instead of just searching Pinterest (although I do love Pinterest!).

I could have stamped some splotches on the upper left, but I decided to try out my new Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies.  Absolutely LOVE these!!

Here’s what I came up with:

Isn’t that cutout fun!!  And I could use the little diamond shapes for a shaker card!  The ribbon is Fresh Fig Finely Woven Ribbon (1/2″) and it’s really soft & easy to work with.

Here’s a tip for stamping clear images when you’re using tiny fonts:  I tried stamping the sentiment using my Fresh Fig Ink Pad, but it was very “juicy” and kept filling in the l’s and o’s.  Then I tried just using the brush side of my Fresh Fig marker and it worked perfectly!

You’ll find all the supplies at the bottom of this post.  Who else loves these thinlits dies?!!  This will be one of the cards we’ll be making for the July In Color Club where the starring color will be…FRESH FIG!  The club members will be receiving everything Fresh Fig in July… Cardstock, Ink Pad, refill, ribbon, marker, and the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack!  Plus bows & glitter shapes just for signing up!

Would you like to join us?  There’s still time!  It’s a 5 month club where we focus on 1 In Color each month.  For $40/month, you’ll have ALL THE IN COLOR SUPPLIES by October!  If you can’t attend the club meetings, I’ll make up the cards for you & send them over with your In Color items for the month.

Now go to the SSINK Card Challenge 46 to see other samples.  And just for fun, please enter our challenge!  Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Thanks for stopping by today!
