Don’t you just love browsing through the new Stampin’ Up! catalog?!! Crisp, clean pages filled with new and some old favorites! I was able to preorder a few sets and my favorite is Colorful Seasons. It coordinates with Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies to make some very fun images!! Plus it comes with a die cut Adirondack chair!!
Isn’t this a fun card! CASEd the idea from Jari Francis, who has a great blog! Thanks Jari!
I’m liking these colors! Lemon Lime Twist with Tempting Turquoise & Melon Mambo & Crushed Curry.
Take a look at the inside:
You probably think I’m at the beach every weekend, but the truth is, I rarely go. I drive by one of the prettiest beaches every day (Hookipa). But I have a string of visitors coming in the next 2 months that will force me to relax & get sandy!! Can’t wait!
I grew up on Oahu and had acres and acres of pineapples growing right behind my house in Waipio Valley. I remember chasing around those fields after school with my dog running beside me. And they’re easy to grow! Every time I buy a pineapple & just stick the top in the ground & it will produce a pineapple the next year!
Stampin’ Up! is retiring my Pineapples!! And the Mahalo!! I’m sure I won’t be getting rid of those…they come in handy here on Maui!

I received this adorable baby card in the mail from my Secret Sister (SACS2017) and wanted to CASE it!! Unfortunately, I can’t tell you who made this cute card, because I haven’t figured out who she is yet!! Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team is featuring Baby Cards. Have you ever needed a card for a set of twins? They’d love receiving this Twin Bear Card!
I can’t figure out how my Secret Sister made the little carts in her card!! Anyone know? I used Lots of Labels Framelits Dies, and the little bears fit nicely inside. The bears are retiring!! So sad! Order them HERE before they’re gone! And you’ll want the Bear Hugs Framelits, too! Order them HERE! They’re on SALE, by the way.
Another contest… first person to tell me what set the arrows come from (the ones on the cart) gets this card in the mail! Woohoo!
Time to check out what the rest of the SSINK Design Team has made for Baby Cards!
I love a good challenge, and Kylie has one for us at the Kylie’s International Blog Highlight May 2017, where the theme is “Masculine” card. I needed a graduation card & really like the message this card sends!
Here’s what I came up with:
I love the colors of this card! Soft Suede & Soft Sky, with a bit of Sahara Sand. And the textures!
These sets are retiring and I’ll miss them!! It’s always hard when Stampin’ Up! comes up with their RETIRING LIST!! But I have to admit, I love the new catalog that will be available in June!
Allelujah! Christ is risen! Easter is the most important celebration for Christians and I wanted to make a banner to remind me and others in my home about this wonderful event!
It’s challenging for me to get a good photo of this project, but I hope you get the idea. Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper makes a pretty background for my banner. I just added some coordinating cardstock, some Easter Stamps and butterfly punches. Don’t you just love how all the Stampin’ Up! products coordinate so nicely!
Here’s a closer look:
Notice the sparkle on the cloth draped over the cross! Wink of Stella!
Love the Butterflies Thinlits, especially with a Vellum butterfly on top!
The supplies for this project are listed at the bottom of this post. Most of them are RETIRING PRODUCTS, so be sure to grab them now before they’re gone!!
Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspriation Design Team has a new Card Sketch Challenge SSINKCS#44 and we hope you’ll play along!
I pulled out the gorgeous Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper to come up with this card:
When I first saw this paper, I felt lukewarm towards it, probably because it only has Night of Navy & Whisper White. I’m drawn to the colorful, mostly pastel Designer Series Papers. But I finally bought a pack of Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper with the corresponding stamp set, Floral Phrases, and now it’s probably my favorite! It’s so beautiful & elegant!
Here’s a close up look at that flower. Notice the light & dark in that stamp.
Have I sold you on it? 🙂 What’s your favorite Designer Series Paper?
