SSINKspiration Welcome Baby!

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!

Image may contain: one or more people, people sleeping and baby

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.

A few of these images are from Message in a Bottle Stamp Set.

If you have any questions or comments, please leave me a note below!  I’d love to hear from you!

Be sure and go to our SSINK PAGE to see how the others have welcomed Baby Hunter!  You’ll find some adorable baby ideas there!

Baby Framed Art

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!

Pineapple Mahalo for SSINK Color Challenge #45

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!

Card Details:

  • Stamps:  Pineapple, Pop of Paradise, A World of Thanks (ALL RETIRING!)
  • Ink:  Delightful Dijon & Pacific Point
  • Paper:  Pacific Point (4 1/4 X 11, score at 5 1/2 & 1 1/4 X 5), Whisper White (5 1/4 X 4 & 1 X 1 3/4 & 1 X 2 7/8)
  • Accessories:  Gold Wink of Stella (RETIRING!), Linen Thread

Look what I did with my stamp!  Took a little courage, but I’m happy with the results!

Now it’s super fast to stamp with 2 colors!

Thanks for stopping by!  And be sure & pick up some Gold Wink of Stella and other retiring items before they’re gone forever!  SHOP RETIRING PRODUCTS!

Be sure and check out what the other Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team has done with these colors!  And add your own project to the challenge!

Poppin’ Pineapples!

Pineapples are a big thing here on Maui!  They’re sweet & delicious & one of my favorite things to snack on.

Anyone ever had that Pineapple Whip at Disneyland?!!  On a hot day after riding on the crazy Jungle Cruise?  Yum!!

Pineapples are also a symbol for hospitality and welcome!

Today the theme is “Friday Favorites” at Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration!

The background paper is Pop of Pink Specialty DSP.  I’ve used most of it up for pink & black cards, but love the gold with the pineapple!

Card Details:

  • Stamps:  Pineapple, A World of Thanks
  • Ink:  Night of Navy, Crushed Curry
  • Paper:  Night of Navy Card Base (4 1/4 X 11, score at 5 1/2), Gold Foil Sheet (5 1/4 X 4), Pop of Pink Specialty DSP (5 X 3 3/4)
  • Accessories:  Wink of Stella- Gold
  • Tips:  Yes, I had to fussy cut the pineapple!  Leave a little tag on the spikey leaf part to glue to the base.  Then I popped it up using dimensionals.

New In Colors!

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.

Playful Palette Create With Cheryl

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.

Playful Palette Create With Cheryl (2)

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).

Hope to see you there!
