CASING a SSINK Team Member

Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration team will all be CASING a Team Member.  CASE means Copy and Share Everything.  As a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator I feel flattered when someone CASES something I’ve made.  CASING can be doing exactly the same thing, or copying the design or the colors.  It can really give you a head start when you’re trying to come up with a new idea.

Here’s what I’m CASING:  

I loved the layout of Darla’s card and decided to CASE it using Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I got this pack of paper FREE by spending $50 during Sale-A-Bration.  TODAY IS THE LAST DAY of this great promotion!  So if you’ve been thinking about placing an order, don’t wait until tomorrow!

Isn’t this a fun layout?!!  Change the Designer Series Paper & get a totally different look!

And here’s a close up of this shiny paper.  All supplies listed at the bottom of this post.

Be sure & head over to the SSINK SITE to see what the others have CASED!

SSINKcc35 Color Challenge for July

Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspriation Team has a Color Challenge perfect for 4th of July!

I found a cute card using the Swirly Bird to make pinwheels here on Jenny Hayward’s blog & thought it was such a cute idea I had to try it out!

Create With Cheryl SSINK Color Challenge July 2

The pinwheels are stamped with Real Red & Dapper Denim, with 2 of the images stamped off before stamping on the card.

I’ve used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to make the tag.  That’s the punch I use the most right now!  And there you see those shiny Enamel Shapes again!!  They really add a special touch!

Details:

  • Stamps:  Swirly Bird, Timeless Treasures, Better Together
  • Inks:  Real Red & Dapper Denim, Marina Mist
  • Paper:  Real Red (card base), Dapper Denim (5 1/8 X 3 7/8), Whisper White (5 X 3 3/4)
  • Accessories:  Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, Sponge Daubers, Enamel Shapes, Baker’s Twine
  • Hints:  I used Marina Mist for the little splotches and to sponge around the tag.

Today is my first official day as a team member & the theme today is Fourth of July (or red/white/blue).  I’m hosting a block party this weekend, so I came up with this little treat to give out.

SSINK 4th of Jul3

The Mini Treat Bag Thinlits were the perfect size for my Red Vines.  Yum!  I remember eating these at the movies when I was a kid.

Wish you could see the sparkle on the little swirls where I’ve swiped it with Wink of Stella!

SSINK 4th of Jul3

This bag, especially with the doily, makes me think of the banners on Makawao Avenue here on Maui.  Most people probably don’t realize this, but we have lots of cowboys (Paniolos) in Hawaii and a big rodeo is held each year on July 4th on my island of Maui.

Being a part of this team is a big challenge for me, and it’s sure to keep me stampin’!  My favorite thing to do!!  I’d appreciate comments any time!  Please subscribe to my blog via email (on the right bar of this page) so that you don’t miss anything!

Indescribable Gift on Vellum

The flower image on the Indescribable Gift Stamp Set is so beautiful!!  Perfect for stamping on vellum!

IMG_8224

 

The idea for this beautiful card comes from Becky Cowley.  I stamped the image with Momento Ink and then colored it using Blendabilities.  You could also use your markers or Blender Pen.  I turned the image over to give it a softer look.

IMG_8228Here’s a different look in blue:

IMG_8227In the background, you can see “happily ever after”.  I’ve used Big News and Blessed By God for the sentiments and done some Gorgeous Grunging!
