SSINKTC52 Sponging Sunsets

Aloha all,

Today is all about sunsets!  That’s one thing we have here on Maui… gorgeous sunsets!

The SSINK Design Team will be showing you different sunsets we’ve sponged.  This is a technique that’s really fun to do- every card turns out a little differently.

This is one of the cards featured in this month’s Stamp of the Month Club.  Click on the Stamp of the Month Tab at the top of the post for more information or just email me.

I started by masking the bottom using a post-it note.  Using Stampin’ Sponges, I applied ink by rubbing the sponge in a circular motion.  Start off the page first.  And remember to start light.  You can always add more ink.

So Saffron, Crushed Curry, & a little bit of Flirty Flamingo.

I moved the post-it to the top, then sponged the water with Marina Mist & Soft Sky.  Then I stamped the water image over that & topped it with Wink of Stella.  The window Thinlits are called Hearth & Home & it’s retiring!  So sad… I love that one!

Can’t wait to see what everyone else has to show us!  CLICK HERE to see more sunsets from the SSINK Team!




Stamp of the Month Club: High Tide

Aloha all,

Time to sign up for the Stamp of the Month Club! 

You’ll love the set I’ve chosen for May… High Tide!  

Build your stamp collection with a new stamp set every month!  Along with each stamp set you’ll receive 3 completed cards using the featured stamp set each month.

Most Clubs like this offer kits that you put together.  But in my experience, kits sometimes don’t get done.  With my Stamp of the Month Club, you’ll receive completed cards, making it simpler for you to recreate the cards using my sample cards.

Another thing you’ll appreciate about my club… there’s no obligation to participate each month!  Just choose the months and stamp sets you want!

Featured Stamp Set for May 2018 – High Tide

My blog is a work in progress right now.  Soon I’ll have a spiffy sign up form, but I haven’t figured that out yet.  So if you want to opt in to the club this month, please just comment at the bottom of this post or shoot me an email.
Here’s a close up of one of the cards:
