Thank you for joining us for our ICS Blog Hop today where we’ll be featuring Sale-a-Bration items. Sale-a-Bration runs through the end of March and you don’t want to miss out on qualifying for some of these GREAT FREE ITEMS!
I’ve been partying with the pandas this week! I have a special friend, Cindy Baughman, that I wanted to send a card to.
She’s all about pineapples, so I think she’ll appreciate this cute card.
This card just makes me smile. The cute paper is Tutti-Frutti DSP and I love the Adhesive Backed Sequins that are part of this suite! The Party Panda stamp set is a Sale-a-Bration Set… FREE with any $50 purchase!
Contact me (or your Stampin’ Up! demonstrator) if you’d like to purchase products to make this card. It’s easy to get a $50 order so that you can get the Party Panda.
You’re at Cheryl Hamilton, Create With Cheryl now. But don’t stop here! Be sure and continue on the blog hop for more ideas & inspiration! Anastasia Radloff is up next!
Hello everyone! Welcome to the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration day when we’ll be welcoming baby Hunter!! Our teammate, Pamela Wu, just had a baby 1 week ago!
Isn’t he just perfect?!!
I made him this Sampler for his room!
It’s mainly an ocean theme with a taste of Hawaii (shave ice & pineapple). I chose these colors (Emerald Envy, Crushed Curry, Basic Black, Flirty Flamingo, Sahara Sand) to go with the Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper.
One of my dear friends is expecting a grand-baby very soon. She’s requested a framed piece for baby’s name… with a hula girl! I’ve been throwing this idea around & procrastinating for at least a month! But baby will soon be here!
So yesterday I started playing around with the idea, trying to make it for boy or girl. Here’s what I came up with:
I just love it & hope she does, too!! You may be asking, “Where’s the hula girl?” I know! I’ve made a special one for her that she’ll have to put in the center square along with baby’s name. I could have made a hula skirt for the mermaid! Just thought of that!
Here’s a few closeup’s:
Definitely a Hawaii Baby Theme here!
If you’d like to make one, I’ll be offering a class soon!

I grew up on Oahu and had acres and acres of pineapples growing right behind my house in Waipio Valley. I remember chasing around those fields after school with my dog running beside me. And they’re easy to grow! Every time I buy a pineapple & just stick the top in the ground & it will produce a pineapple the next year!
Stampin’ Up! is retiring my Pineapples!! And the Mahalo!! I’m sure I won’t be getting rid of those…they come in handy here on Maui!

This week’s Stampin’ Royalty Challenge is to create a project using flowers! What fun! Where do I start? Well, I wanted to use some of my brand new stamps, so I found a cute little flower from the Swirly Bird set.
I think my favorite thing about this card is the colors!! Sweet Sugarplum, Tip Top Taupe & Mint Macaron.
Stampin’ Royalty: Stampin’ Royalty Challenge SR#332 is where I found the inspiration for my card.
Stamp Sets: Pop of Paradise, Swirly Bird, Build a Birthday
Colors/Paper: Card Base: Sweet Sugarplum (8 1/2 X 5 1/2), Whisper White (5 1/4 X 4 & 5 1/4 X 1 1/2), Tip Top Taupe (5 1/4 X 3/4)
Accessories: Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits, Butterflies Thinlits, Linen Thread, Metal Rimmed Pearls
I’ve only had time to make 2 cards since I opened my box of items from the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog. I’ve been working way too much & can’t wait until the weekend when I should have a little more time to play.
Don’t you love these new In Colors?!! This is Peekaboo Peach & Sweet Sugarplum. I had a piece of Cherry Cobbler on my desk & added that. Wasn’t sure if it would work, but I like it.
You’ll be seeing a lot of this pineapple! It’s from a new stamp set called Pop of Paradise. The new ribbon comes in all the new In Colors & is called Ruched Ribbon. I had to look up ruched & it means “gathering or pleating”. So now we know. It’s kind of crinkly.
The Designer Series Paper is called Playful Palette & had beautiful colors & patterns!
Mark your calendars for the May Card Classes!
Saturday, May 28 at 2pm or Tuesday, May 31 at 3pm.
We’ll make 4 different cards with envelopes to match for $10 (or FREE with your $20 order placed that day).
