#SSINKTC51

Have you ever tried the Reflection Technique?  I think you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to do!  Today at Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspriation we’re focusing on the Reflection Technique and hope you’ll play along with our challenge!

I’ve used this technique before, but always with Lovely As a Tree.  For my card I’m using a neglected (but loved!) stamp set.  Wild About Flowers.  Isn’t that sentiment so nice?

I’m not really very good at sponging, but getting better with practice.  Here’s a card I made with a left-over piece from a card I messed up on.  I think I like it even better than the card above!  What do you think?

I’m trying to earn the Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip to Greece in 2019, but have quite a ways to go!  Here you can see my progress!  Looks like I just passed Mexico!

To help me out, order Wild About Flowers or Lovely as a Tree online & I’ll throw in some Sponge Daubers or Stampin’ Sponges FREE to get you started!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure to head over to SSInkspiration to see what the other design team members came up with, and to play along with this fun challenge.

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.

Touches of Texture Get Well Cards

No automatic alt text available.

Happy Monday & welcome to the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration post where we’ll be focusing on Get Well Cards today.

For my cards I started with a kit that’s been sitting on my table for awhile.  It’s called Color Me Happy & came out with our Stampin’ Blends.  The colors are so pretty & the envelopes really step it up a notch!

This was super easy because the card base & white layer were ready to go.  I used a flower from Touches of Texture and sentiment from Flourishing Phrases, embossing them in silver.  Colored them in with my Stampin’ Blends & dressed it up with ribbon & Glitter Dots (love those!!).

Here’s a different look.  Found those cute vellum leaves that were left over from last month’s Paper Pumpkin!

Here’s a picture of the Color Me Happy Project Kit ($25- makes 16 cards).

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.

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.

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.

Winter Blues with Petal Palette

Here’s a card that’s sure to cure your Winter Blues!

I just loved the way this turned out!  The paper is Petal Passion DSP that has been colored using my Stampin’ Blends.  There’s really no right or wrong way to use the Blends- just experiment!

This card is a Fun Fold called a Gate Card.  Very simple to make.  Give it a try!  For the card base, start with cardstock cut at 4 1/4 X 11 and score each end at 2 3/4″.  Then fold each side in towards the middle.

Take a look at the back of the paper after I colored it!  I almost like this as much as the front!!  What do you think?

Gave this card to my sweet husband for Valentine’s Day.  He’s been in the hospital in Arizona for 2 weeks- came back to Maui & had 1 nice day at home then had to go back to Maui Memorial ICU with more complications.  Hopefully he’ll be coming home today!

Thank you to everyone for your kindness and prayers during this difficult time.  My stampin’ friends are so wonderful- love you all!!  I’ve had people help prep my classes for me, mow my lawn, bring food, & loads of people praying & encouraging us.  We are truly blessed!
