SSINKTC52 Sponging Sunsets

Aloha all,

Today is all about sunsets!  That’s one thing we have here on Maui… gorgeous sunsets!

The SSINK Design Team will be showing you different sunsets we’ve sponged.  This is a technique that’s really fun to do- every card turns out a little differently.

This is one of the cards featured in this month’s Stamp of the Month Club.  Click on the Stamp of the Month Tab at the top of the post for more information or just email me.

I started by masking the bottom using a post-it note.  Using Stampin’ Sponges, I applied ink by rubbing the sponge in a circular motion.  Start off the page first.  And remember to start light.  You can always add more ink.

So Saffron, Crushed Curry, & a little bit of Flirty Flamingo.

I moved the post-it to the top, then sponged the water with Marina Mist & Soft Sky.  Then I stamped the water image over that & topped it with Wink of Stella.  The window Thinlits are called Hearth & Home & it’s retiring!  So sad… I love that one!

Can’t wait to see what everyone else has to show us!  CLICK HERE to see more sunsets from the SSINK Team!

 

 

 

Stamp of the Month Club: High Tide

Aloha all,

Time to sign up for the Stamp of the Month Club! 

You’ll love the set I’ve chosen for May… High Tide!  

Build your stamp collection with a new stamp set every month!  Along with each stamp set you’ll receive 3 completed cards using the featured stamp set each month.

Most Clubs like this offer kits that you put together.  But in my experience, kits sometimes don’t get done.  With my Stamp of the Month Club, you’ll receive completed cards, making it simpler for you to recreate the cards using my sample cards.

Another thing you’ll appreciate about my club… there’s no obligation to participate each month!  Just choose the months and stamp sets you want!

Featured Stamp Set for May 2018 – High Tide
(Photopolymer – $36 stamp set plus $8 postage/handling & completed cards with instructions)
My blog is a work in progress right now.  Soon I’ll have a spiffy sign up form, but I haven’t figured that out yet.  So if you want to opt in to the club this month, please just comment at the bottom of this post or shoot me an email.
Here’s a close up of one of the cards:
Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you have a great week.

Welcome to the Alaska Achiever’s March Blog Hop!  Hop along to see posts from Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who have earned the Alaska Cruise (July 2018).  We’re focusing on Sale-a-Bration & the Occasions Catalog this month.

My card features the Myths & Magic Suite– definitely one of my favorites!!  This suite has it all… magical images & framelits, gorgeous, sparkly Designer Series Paper, even Washi Tape!

I just love the sparkly paper and the fold on this card!  This is one of the cards we’ll be making at the Cards, Etc. classes at the end of the month.

Alaska Achievers Blog Hop Magical Day

Thank you for joining us for our February Alaskan Achievers Blog Hop.  Those hopping today are Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all around the world that have achieved the prestigious Stampin’ Up! Incentive trip that only a limited number around the world achieve.

We will be hopping together once a month to show you ideas and designs using current Stampin’ Up! products.  Today we’ll be focusing on Sale-a-Bration and the Occations Catalog.

Today I made a pretty mermaid card using Magical Day, a stamp set I’m featuring next month as my FIRST STAMP OF THE MONTH CLUB set!  I’m so excited to tell you about my club and hope you’ll give it a try.  Each month will focus on a different stamp set and you have the option of opting in or opting out- no obligation to participate each month.  The other thing you’ll like is that I make the completed cards for you!  This way you’ll be inspired to make more of the same and you won’t have card kits piling up when you’re too busy to complete them.

I’ve colored in the mermaid using my Stampin’ Blends and added a little Wink of Stella.  I love how it looks with the Foil Frenzy polka dot paper!  Look at the bottom of my post for the supply list.

Before I go, here’s a photo collage to show you the Stamp of the Month Club for March:

Thanks for joining us today in our Blog Hop!  Make sure you continue on with the other blogs- you’re sure to see some great ideas to inspire you.
