Oh the Places You’ll Go

I’ve been playing around with Shaker Cards this month!  After seeing the globe on today’s Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Challenge, I reached for my set, Places You’ll Go!

Places You'll Go Create With Cheryl 3

This set would be perfect for graduation, retirement, even to give to a new Stampin’ Up! demonstrator!!  I know the past 5 years I’ve been a demonstrator have been much more than I anticipated!

Flourishing Phrases for MOJO451

Yesterday afternoon I received my highly anticipated box of new products from Stampin’ Up! that were JUST FOR ME!  A whole box full!!  I was stuck at where to begin.  So I headed straight to Mojo Monday for inspiration!

I wanted to use the gorgeous Designer Series Paper, Blooms & Bliss paired with Flourishing Phrases.
Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper     Flourishing Phrases Clear-Mount Stamp Set
Here’s the card I came up with:
MOJO451 createwithcheryl.me
I used the swirl from Swirly Scribbles Thinlits under the sentiment and glued the leftover on the bottom to balance things out.  I wasn’t sold on that until I used it & now I’m in love!  Do you ever do that too?  Many times I’m not sure about a stamp until I ink it up & that’s all it takes!

Baker’s Box for Easter

This club’s projects will all center around Easter!

Lamb Baker's Box Createwithcheryl.me

This cute little box (idea is from Mickey Roberts) is simple to make using the Baker’s Box Thinlits.  The size is perfect to hold a handful of Easter treats (it’s a bit smaller than a cupcake).  And don’t you love that lamb?!   I colored him in with my Blender Pen using ink pressed to the lid of the ink pad cover.  I actually separated the “happy easter” from the lamb to make it easier to use for baby cards.  I’ll show you how to do this at Club.

March Club will be Saturday, March 12 at 2 pm at my house in Haiku or Sunday, March 13 at 1 pm in Pukalani.  Guests are always welcome & just need to place a $25 order or pay $10.

Here’s another project I just love:

Work of Art Easter Egg Createwithcheryl.me

This pretty egg is decorated using Work of Art!  My favorite thing is the sentiment embossed using Melon Mambo Embossing Powder!  You can’t see it, but the Daffodil Delight stripes are sparkling with Wink of Stella!

Hope you can join us this month!

English Garden DSP

I just love the new DSP called English Garden!  Beautiful colors & floral designs!  Decided to make a pretty sympathy card.

Createwithcheryl English GardenThe paper is the star of this card!  I haven’t done any sewing on my cards for awhile, but was inspired by Jaydee’s card.

IMG_9244I’ll be having my Open House this Sunday from 1pm – 3pm!!  You won’t want to miss it!!  Selling lots of retired stamp sets and papers for bargain prices!!  Stop by and make a card, enjoy some food, and browse through the new Stampin’ Up! catalog.
