SSINK Case the Design Team Member- Darla Roberts

Today the Stylin’ Stampin INKspiration team will be CASE-ing Darla Roberts!  Darla took a break from our team for a bit last year when she was going through lots of stress and challenges, but she’s BACK!  I finally got to meet Darla at On Stage a few weeks ago & immediately felt like we were old friends!  She is full of energy & enthusiasm & has a heart of gold.  Love you, Darla!!

Here’s the card I made after browsing Darla’s Blog, Stampin’ With Darla.

And here’s Darla’s card:

Same card.  Different colors.  The leaf stamp from Colorful Seasons is so pretty!  Thanks, Darla, for the idea for this simple card!

ICS Blog Hop… Introducing 2017 – 2019 In Colors!

The more I use these new In Colors, the more I just LOVE THEM!!

I was asked by my BFF Susie (my Honolulu buddy from single days…) to make a special card for her friend who was retiring from teaching.  Special card makes me think:  Card in a Box!

Aren’t those colors gorgeous?!!  And I thought the chair & drink were the quintessential “retirement”!  The beautiful Designer Series Paper is called Naturally Eclectic.  I paired it with the In Color Designer Series Paper called Fresh Florals.

The sentiments from Wild About Flowers mainly focus on retirement.  Notice how the word retirement is 2-toned.  That was simple to do because the word retirement is a separate stamp.  I stamped it in Lemon Lime Twist, then just dipped the bottom in Fresh Fig.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Favorite Stamp Set from the New SU Catalog!

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!

Time to check out more New Catalog Favorites from the SSINK TEAM!

Thanks for stopping by!
