SSINKCC51 Color Challenge

We have a fun color challenge to share with you today at Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration:  Flirty Flamingo, Dapper Denim, & Lemon Lime Twist.  I think these colors are so pretty together.  And the thing I’m most excited about:  Flirty Flamingo, now an In Color, is coming back TO STAY with the color revamp!!  Yay!

I was inspired after seeing a pretty card on Instagram with a watercolor background & the mermaid on top.  I don’t seem to be able to copy the picture from Instagram (can you do that?), but I can tell you where to find this talented lady on Instagram… chandrajunck888.

Here’s the card I came up with:

I think the secret is starting with watercolor paper!  Makes such a difference.  I put a few drops of ink on my clear block, then painted with my aquapainter, mixing the colors a bit.  I just received my preorder from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  The Nature’s Poem Suite is my absolute favorite!!!  Trees, branches, leaves- with thinlits!!  It’s Lovely as a Tree on steroids!

The copper adds a nice accent, don’t you think?  You’ll find my supply list on the bottom of this post (except for the Rooted in Nature Bundle that will be available for purchase June 1st.  Unless you’re a demo, then you can order it now!  Don’t forget my May Promo… make a $50 order from me on line & I’ll send you a package of leaves trinkets as a Thank You!

Be sure & check out the SSINK Page to see what the other designers did using these pretty colors!  Better yet, add your own card to the challenge!  We’d love to see what you come up with!

Thanks for stopping by!



Rooted in Nature Sympathy

Today at Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration we are CASING Pamela Wu!  Pamela & I have become good friends through this blog, even though we’ve never met (yet…).  I have quite a few girlfriends like that I’ve met through stamping and they’ve been such a blessing in my life!

When I saw this card made by Pamela, I knew I wanted to CASE it!  It’s simple, but so pretty- such a great layout.  CASE means “Copy & Share Everything”.  The idea is to start with a card you love and either make one exactly alike, or change it up a bit.  Just be sure & give credit to the original artist!

Here’s Pam’s card:

And here’s my CASE:

I really appreciate a nice Sympathy Card.  They’re probably the most difficult card to write, but the most important.  When Pat’s mom passed away several months ago we received some beautiful cards that we cherish & will never throw away.

You can see I’m playing with my new stuff!!  I started with the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper & chose the colors from there.  I wanted a masculine card (no doily) & found Graceful Glass Designer Vellum (you guys are going to LOVE THIS!) and cut the circle out with Layering Circles Framelits.  The font on the Painted Glass set goes perfectly with the stained glass look.

I have a special May Promo… make a $50 order from me on line & I’ll send you a package of leaves trinkets as a Thank You! (greater than $9 value!)

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure & go to the SSINK PAGE to see what others have CASED from Pamela!
