SSINK Telescoping Cool Treats

Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration team is featuring “Unusual Shaped Cards”.  I’ve made a Telescoping Birthday Card!

Isn’t that fun?!  I just love the whole Cool Treats Suite!  There’s a cute stamp set, Designer Series Paper, Framelits Dies, Sprinkes, & Washi Tape!  Take a close look at this paper:

See the shiny embossed popsicles?  This is what makes it a “Specialty Designer Series Paper”.  When the paper says specialty, the pack includes 2 very special sheets of paper in the pack that are shiny, embossed, & really pretty!  That’s why those Designer Series Papers cost $13 instead of $11.  Now you know!

Just for fun (and some great ideas!) check out what the other SSINK Team members have come up with for Unusual Shaped Cards!  

Love Card for #SSINK

I really love the sentiment in this card (and the font!)!  Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team is focusing on Valentine or LOVE Cards!  Instead of the typical Valentine paper, I’ve used Tasty Treats Designer Series Paper for this card.  I love the way Stampin’ Up! makes all these products that go together!!  Washi Tape.  Sprinkles Embellishments. Ink/Paper.  And Designer Series Paper.

Here’s the Card Details:

  • Stamps:  Bloomin’ Love, Falling for You
  • Ink:  Watermelon Wonder & Crumb Cake
  • Paper:  Whisper White (5 1/2 X 11, scored at 4 1/4), Tasty Treats Specialty DSP (1 1/4 X 5 1/2)
  • Accessories:  Tasty Treats Designer Washi Tape, Sprinkles Embellishments, Layering Circles Framelits Dies, Copper Metallic Thread, Tags & Labels Framelits Dies

Here’s what you’ll find on the inside:

Hope you enjoyed my Love Card today!  Be sure & take a look at more ideas from the SSINK TEAM!

 

 

Watercolor Cuteness!

Don’t you just love him?!!  He looks just like my puppy, Swiffer!  I colored him using the new Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Pencils.  So fun & simple to use!  You can use Blender Pens or Aquapainters to blend the colors.  There’s really not a wrong way to use them so it’s fun to play around with them to see the different results.

Card Details:

  • Stamps:  Bella & Friends, Designer Tin of Cards
  • Ink:  Stazon Black Ink
  • Paper:  Smokey Slate (5 1/2 X 11), Sweet Sugarplum (3 X 5 1/4), Soft Sky (1 X 5 1/4), Whisper White
  • Accessories:  Happy Heart Embossing Folder, Enamel Dots, Watercolor Pencils, Aquapainter, Layering Circles Framelits

Here’s Swiffer.  He doesn’t look amused at my playing with his ears.

Be sure & head over to see the rest of the SSINK Designer’s Watercoloring!  I’m sure you’ll get some great ideas!

Fun Fold for Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  Today, like most of you, I’m busy getting ready for the big day.  Along with working.  We have a new kitchen!  Just got the sink & dishwasher a few days ago…never been so excited to do dishes!

I’ve been playing around with this Fun Fold Card lately- called a Pop Up Panel Card.  It’s so much fun to make & really a surprise when opened!  I made a Thanksgiving Card using Moroccan Designer Series Paper.  The colors are gorgeous and remind me of fall.

I used a 1 1/2″ belly band to close this card & love the way the Layering Circles Framelits cut out this medallion.  Here’s the inside:

#SSINKCS38: Card Sketch

This is one of my favorite Card Sketches!  

]I could have gone in so many directions with this, but reached for By the Shore Designer Series Paper to get the idea started.ssink-october-card-sketch

I used the “Rock ‘N Roll Technique to jazz up the stamped images a bit.  That’s done by inking the image in one color, then rolling the stamp edges around in another color.

Don’t you like that burlap ribbon?!  It has a tiny touch of bling.

Here’s the card details:

  • Stamps:  Seaside Shore
  • Ink:  Crumb Cake & Marina Mist
  • Paper:  Crumb Cake Card Base (5 1/2 X 11, scored at 4 1/4), Dapper Denim (5 1/4 X 4), By the Shore DSP (5 1/8 X 3 7/8)
  • Accessories:  Layering Circles Framelits Dies, Burlap Ribbon, Gold Sequin Trim
  • ssink-october-card-sketch-2

I think this is a good masculine card.  I think I can get away with 4 sequins for a guy, don’t you?

Be sure & stop by the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team to see what they’ve done for this great card sketch!
