SSINK Card Sketch #45 Eastern Palace

There’s a new Card Sketch Challenge today at www.ssinkspiration.blogspot.com.   I haven’t gotten Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper out of my system yet, and pulled it out again for this sketch.  Here’s my card:

There are so many different looks you can achieve with this paper!  And the stickers!  But the best part of this suite is the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies!  I just love that medallion with the Dapper Denim showing through!

I needed a Birthday Card & decided to add this sentiment from Window Shopping Stamp Set.  That’s the set that goes with the Window Box Thinlits Dies.  Don’t you love the font?!!

Make sure to check out what other ideas the SSINK Team has for this fun sketch!

Pop of Pink Favorite Retiring Designer Series Paper

Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspriation Team’s focus is on Retiring Designer Series Paper.  I love lots of them and always have a hard time letting go!!  Pop of Pink is so bright & pretty, so I’m choosing to focus on that today.

This beautiful paper is ON SALE FOR ONLY $7.80 (regular price $13).

ORDER HERE before it’s gone!  There’s also Washi Tape to match!

I chose this paper to make a card for one of my downline.  I think of Francine as a Melon Mambo type of girl… flashy, fun, enthusiastic!  Francine just promoted to Bronze Elite!  25% discounts!!!  Woohoo!

Here’s the card I made to celebrate her achievement:

This is called a Joy Fold Card.  Here’s what it looks like opened up:

Fun card!  I’m sure I’ll be featuring this in a class very soon…

Here’s Francine with some of her swaps.  We look forward to Francine’s swaps because they usually are 3-D and contain candy!!

 

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure & head over to THIS PAGE to see the favorite retiring Designer Series Papers from the rest of the SSINK Team!

Eastern Palace Suite Double Gate Fold Card

There’s a new Suite in town!!  Available June 1st- Eastern Palace Suite.  And it’s gorgeous!!  Especially the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies!

Fun new colors & the tassels are so cute!  This is a Double Gate Fold Card that I made for my downline who promoted!  My downline (Maui Big Shots!) are so enthusiastic & fun!!  Love them all!  This was for Linda Z, who just promoted to Bronze Elite & will earn 25% discounts now!  Woohoo!  The more you spend, the more you save, Linda!!  That’s what I tell my husband, anyway!

Here’s a few of my downline, the Maui Big Shots! with some swaps.  Linda’s in the middle, with the blue shirt.

Linda’s a classy gal with a business background, who’s also a Master Gardener!  She’s busy with so many things and recently she’s started having her own card classes!  Her cards are beautiful with great directions, and everyone has a great time!  Pretty soon I’m thinking she’ll have her own blog…

I made this card with Linda in mind, thinking of how she’s transformed her whole yard into a beautiful garden!

SSINKIC#44 Eastern Beauty Meets Beautiful You

Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspriation Team has a new challenge.  I was determined to use my new Eastern Palace Suite Products and I managed to pair them with a girl holding an umbrella.  Beautiful You.  Here’s what I came up with:

I wasn’t sure about the Eastern Palace Suite at first, but I’m a sucker for getting things early!!  The colors are fun & bright and the best thing is the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies!!  Don’t you love that cut-out circle!!  And I love the new InColor, Lemon Lime Twist!!

Also, this is sort of a new fun fold card.  I’ll give directions here:

  • Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock (new!) 5 1/2 x 11, score at 4 1/4, then cut off 2 1/4
  • DSP for flap (5 1/4 X 1 3/4)
  • Front image:  Cardstock (4 1/4 X 3) & Very Vanilla (4 X 2 3/4)

Did you notice that gold border on the bottom?  Those are beautiful Gold Vinyl Stickers!

Can you help me come up with a name for this fun fold?!!  I’ll make a set of cards for the person who comes up with the name I choose!!  Just leave your comment below!
