SSINKcc35 Color Challenge for July

Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspriation Team has a Color Challenge perfect for 4th of July!

I found a cute card using the Swirly Bird to make pinwheels here on Jenny Hayward’s blog & thought it was such a cute idea I had to try it out!

Create With Cheryl SSINK Color Challenge July 2

The pinwheels are stamped with Real Red & Dapper Denim, with 2 of the images stamped off before stamping on the card.

I’ve used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to make the tag.  That’s the punch I use the most right now!  And there you see those shiny Enamel Shapes again!!  They really add a special touch!


  • Stamps:  Swirly Bird, Timeless Treasures, Better Together
  • Inks:  Real Red & Dapper Denim, Marina Mist
  • Paper:  Real Red (card base), Dapper Denim (5 1/8 X 3 7/8), Whisper White (5 X 3 3/4)
  • Accessories:  Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, Sponge Daubers, Enamel Shapes, Baker’s Twine
  • Hints:  I used Marina Mist for the little splotches and to sponge around the tag.

Open House fun!

Thank you so much to everyone who attended my Open House on Sunday!  But…I still have retired stamps left over!!!  #stampproblems!



IMG_6334We made cards & tags using new products from the Holiday Catalog!



IMG_6338CASED the card from Julia Pitta & hardly changed a thing because I loved her card!  I used the Honeycomb embossing folder & decided to color my rhinestones using blendabilities!  So simple, but it adds a lot!  The stamp set is called Seasonally Scattered.

For the tag, cut Whisper White CS 4 3/4 X 2 & punch with the scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  We inked our punch in Coastal Cabana then used sponge daubers to add the Blackberry Bliss ink.

IMG_6340Here’s a closeup of the rhinestones!

IMG_6335Lots of bling going on here!IMG_6337

I have a feeling everyone is going to want this Gift Box Punch Board!!  No glue necessary!!

Stampin' Off the Grid

IMG_4270Made this card using my favorite stamp set:  Creative Elements & used Off the Grid stamp for the background.  I think this is a cute idea for Washi Tape, too.  Found this idea from my fabulous upline, Anne Matasci.

My card inspiration is from Retro Sketches.rs103

Have a great week & MAKE SOMETHING!!
