SSINK Tranquil Tulips Host Set

Stampin’ Up! Host Sets are special because you are only able to order them after placing a $150 order!  They are also offered at a reduced price- close to 1/2 off!  You can do this by joining one of my clubs where you get to be the hostess when your turn comes around.  Or you can host a workshop & invite your friends!  I bring all the products & you supply the friends!  It’s a great deal and always lots of fun!  Let me know if you’re interested!

There are some beautiful Host Sets in the Annual Catalog and today I’m showing you a sample of my favorite:  Tranquil Tulips.

It’s so simple to make a beautiful card using this set because it’s 2-Step Stamping!  And notice how the images are not completely solid?  That gives it a very pretty, artistic look!

The ribbon is 1/2″ Gingham Ribbon.  Wish they had it in all the colors!!!  But it’s only available in Night of Navy & Smoky Slate.

Here’s a different card- same stamp set:

Another gorgeous ribbon!!  3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon in Bermuda Bay

Time to check out what the other Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration gals have to show you using Host Sets!

June Cards, Etc. Class

Time for another Cards, Etc. Class!  I think you’ll love this month’s projects!

Flourishing Phrases for MOJO451

Yesterday afternoon I received my highly anticipated box of new products from Stampin’ Up! that were JUST FOR ME!  A whole box full!!  I was stuck at where to begin.  So I headed straight to Mojo Monday for inspiration!

I wanted to use the gorgeous Designer Series Paper, Blooms & Bliss paired with Flourishing Phrases.
Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper     Flourishing Phrases Clear-Mount Stamp Set
Here’s the card I came up with:
MOJO451 createwithcheryl.me
I used the swirl from Swirly Scribbles Thinlits under the sentiment and glued the leftover on the bottom to balance things out.  I wasn’t sold on that until I used it & now I’m in love!  Do you ever do that too?  Many times I’m not sure about a stamp until I ink it up & that’s all it takes!
