SSINK Sparkle & Shine Happy Wishes

The theme for today’s Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration is Sparkle & Shine!  I’ve been waiting for an idea to use Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit and chose it because of the shine in these cute tassles!  Added a little bling & silver embossing & it totally Sparkles & Shines!  And that paper is perfect:  Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper.

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:

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!

We’ve got a fun Color Challenge for you today at SSINK!  Sale-a-Bration’s almost here (2 more days!!) so I’m using a pretty stamp that you can get FREE with a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration!  It’s called Heartfelt Blooms and has a very realistic look- very pretty!

#SSINK Doilies & Lace

Good morning!  I love Fridays because the weekend is almost here.  This weekend I look forward to New Years and plan to spend lots of time decorating my beautiful Love Today Planner Kit!  Washi Tape, colored pens, and brainstorming about my goals for 2018!  You can order one HERE & get yourself organized with this inspiring journal!

Today I’m showing you a card using doilies & lace!  It’s fun to browse around Pinterest looking for ideas for Vintage cards, but I’m not sure this qualifies as “Vintage” with these bright colors.   What do you think?

I LOVE the colors in this card!  Lemon Lime Twist & Pool Party.  And the more I use the Quilted Christmas Bundle, the more I like it!!  The Designer Series Paper is Painted Autumn.  I colored the Rhinestone using Pool Party Stampin’ Blends.

Below are easy ordering links for the products used on today’s card:

 

 

SSINK Winter Wonderland Carols of Christmas

Merry Christmas!!  After all the rushing around & busyness, it’s here.  A day to pause and reflect on the greatest gift the world has been given.  A day to be grateful.  A day to share.

I’m sharing some 3 X 3 cards with you today for our theme:  Winter Wonderland.  I love all the little details in these cards:  glitter on the trees, a tiny deer, and that cute silver mini sequins. The colors used are Tranquil Tide, Pool Party, and Whisper White.

And we’ve got snowed on a couple of weeks ago!- not at my house, but on my mountain- Haleakala!  Photo courtesy Aki'Ra

Although it may sound strange, snowfall in Hawaii is not rare. It snows here every year, but only at the summits of the highest volcanoes on the Big Island – Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea – which are at an elevation above 13,000 feet, as well as Haleakala on the island of Maui, which is at an elevation of just over 10,000 feet.

As you can see, a stack of 3 X 3 cards fits perfectly in the pizza box.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a wonderful day!!

Oh… before you go, be sure & stop by the SSINK PAGE for more Winter Wonderland ideas!

SSINK 3 X 3 Cards in a Quilted Christmas Pizza Box

Aloha and welcome to another Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration post!  Today we’ll be showing you our ideas for 3 X 3 gift cards.  3 X 3 cards are simple and very useful.  I participated in a 3 X 3 swap at On Stage in November and got tons of great ideas!!  Here’s what I came up with using the Quilted Christmas Suite:

I started with the Pizza Box!  No surprise there!!  Perfect size for the 3 X 3 cards.

Open it up…

Isn’t that fun & inviting?!  It’s filled with 3 X 3 cards with matching envelopes.

I’ve had so much fun with this Suite!  There’s so much you can do with it.

You might be searching around for that star in the middle.  That’s from Trim Your Stocking Thinlits.  All ingredients listed below.

Time to head over to the SSINK PAGE for more 3 X 3 ideas!

 

SSINK Window Cards- Recycling!

I’m one of those people who have a hard time throwing things away!  Even old Christmas Cards!  I’ve found a way to recycle them that I’m really happy with:  Window Cards using last year’s cards.

This was a really FUN project!  These are some of my old Christmas Cards, framed using Hearth & Home Thinlits!  You can purchase the Thinlits for just $20 and do the same with your cards this year!  Here’s some finished cards:

Can’t wait to send this one back to the grandparents!!  And the last one isn’t a Christmas Card, but I love the colors & had to show you.

Which one do you like best?  Does anyone recognize their card from last year?!!  I’d love to hear your comments!

Now go over the the SSINK PAGE to see some more Window Card ideas!

SSINK Bags ‘N Tags Merry Little Christmas

Thank you for joining the SSINK Team today as we’ll be showcasing Bags ‘N Tags.  I always have a few decorated bags made up for last minute gift giving.  I used that fun plaid paper from Merry Little Christmas Suite to make today’s project.

All I’ve been making is Christmas, so I wanted to do something different.  Found the idea for this from Stampin’ Georgia, who had tons of great ideas!  Thanks Georgia!  I love the ease of stamping with Merry Little Labels & just punching out with the coordinating Everyday Label Punch!

I love the stamp with the deer that says “Let it snow”… but it doesn’t apply to me much here on Maui!  So I cut up my stamp using my paper snips to make it more useful for me!  Very freeing!!

Found the perfect sized Happy Birthday in the Ready to Pop set.

Before I leave, I need to show you that it does snow in Hawaii.  Sometimes right on my mountain, Haleakala!  So don’t tell me it doesn’t get cold here!Image result for snow on haleakala 2017

Who has hiked in Haleakala?  Or gone up to the top to see the sunrise?  Freezing cold, right?!!

Hope you got some inspiration to help with your gift packaging!  For more great ideas, check out the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team Page!

SSINK Clean & Simple Christmas Using Merry Little Labels

I have a Clean & Simple Project to share with you today.  Tags using Merry Little Labels Stamp Set and the coordinating punch, Everyday Label Punch.  The colors all come together well using Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper.  I haven’t punched a hole in the top of these tags yet, because I just might put them on the front of a card.  That would look pretty with a little embossed paper in the background…

For this tag, I just punched Old Olive cardstock & laid it sideways.

Tag #2 has some Black Mini Sequin Trim peaking out.  Love how tiny this is!

Don’t you love the plaid paper in this DSP?!!  This one has a gold stitched shape circle underneath and is embellished with Gold Faceted Gems.
