SSINK Blog Hop: Love is in the Air!

Love is in the air today, which you’ll see as you hop along with the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration team!  You’re sure to get some great ideas & inspiration from these talented ladies.  I feel very fortunate (and challenged!) to be a part of this group!

I want to show you all what we’ll be doing in my February Clubs!  A set of notecards featuring Lift Me Up Stamp Set and the coordinating Designer Series Paper, Carried Away.  This paper just happens to be FREE with any $50 order during Sale-A-Bration (going through March 31st).  I saw this idea about a year ago from Mickey Roberts, but I can’t find the exact link…

Doesn’t this make a cute set!!  Can’t wait until my club members see this!

Card Details:

  • Stamps:  Lift Me Up
  • Inks:  Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaroon, Night of Navy, Peekaboo Peach
  • Paper:  Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes, Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaroon, Night of Navy, Peekaboo Peach Card Stocks (4 1/4 X 2), Carried Away Designer Series Paper (1 1/2 X 3 3/4 & 3 1/2 X 3/8)
  • Accessories:  Banner Triple Punch, Decorative Label Punch (inside sentiment), Up & Away Thinlits Dies, Enamel Shapes

We’re going to package them in these cute little tins.  They don’t ship to Hawaii, but I HAD to have them!!  Thanks to my brother, Gary, who lugged the big box on the plane last time when he flew over to see me & Mom.  Shipping to Hawaii.  You’d think it was another country!  But that’s a whole other story…

Want to make one of these??!  Come to club this month!  2 dates to choose from:  Saturday, Feb. 11th at 2 pm or Sunday, Feb. 12th at 1 pm at my house in Haiku.  To try it out, just place a $25 order that day!  I’m prepping 3 extra, so hurry to reserve your spot!

Pokemon Go Punch Art!

It’s my kid’s fault!!  I’ve gotten caught up in the latest craze…Pokemon Go!

Last week my 2 daughters & I were in Charleston, SC, making wedding plans for my daughter, Jenny, who will be getting married there in 3 months!  None of us had ever been there and there are so many details to planning a wedding!  We had a lot of fun, but it was very stressful!

So…to de-stress, we’d walk over to the park across from our hotel & try to catch ’em all!! The park was LOADED with Pokemon!  And also loaded with a crowd of people staring at their phones walking around.

So when I decided to make a Punch Art Card for the Stylin’ Stampin’INKspiration Team, I knew just what I wanted to make!Pokemon Punch Art Createwithcheryl.me

This little guy is called Octillery.  To make him, I used my Owl Punch & cut out a few shapes from Flower Fair Framelits.  Then I stuck on some shiny Enamel Shapes.  Pokemon Punch Art Createwithcheryl.me2In the background you’ll see By the Shore DSP embossed with little white bubbles.

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.
