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!

August Seaside Shore

Seaside Shore has some nice, detailed fish images, along with seaweed & rope.  This is my stamp for the August calendar page.

I’ve used a Masking Technique to stamp the bottom fish in Calypso Coral, then cover him with a post-it note that I’ve cut out in that shape.  Then I was able to stamp seaweed right over it without messing up the fish.  Other colors:  Dapper Denim, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky.

Be sure & swim on over to Crystal & Anne’s blogs…

#SSINKCS38: Card Sketch

This is one of my favorite Card Sketches!  

]I could have gone in so many directions with this, but reached for By the Shore Designer Series Paper to get the idea started.ssink-october-card-sketch

I used the “Rock ‘N Roll Technique to jazz up the stamped images a bit.  That’s done by inking the image in one color, then rolling the stamp edges around in another color.

Don’t you like that burlap ribbon?!  It has a tiny touch of bling.

Here’s the card details:

  • Stamps:  Seaside Shore
  • Ink:  Crumb Cake & Marina Mist
  • Paper:  Crumb Cake Card Base (5 1/2 X 11, scored at 4 1/4), Dapper Denim (5 1/4 X 4), By the Shore DSP (5 1/8 X 3 7/8)
  • Accessories:  Layering Circles Framelits Dies, Burlap Ribbon, Gold Sequin Trim
  • ssink-october-card-sketch-2

I think this is a good masculine card.  I think I can get away with 4 sequins for a guy, don’t you?

Be sure & stop by the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team to see what they’ve done for this great card sketch!

Pokemon Go Punch Art!

It’s my kid’s fault!!  I’ve gotten caught up in the latest craze…Pokemon Go!

Last week my 2 daughters & I were in Charleston, SC, making wedding plans for my daughter, Jenny, who will be getting married there in 3 months!  None of us had ever been there and there are so many details to planning a wedding!  We had a lot of fun, but it was very stressful!

So…to de-stress, we’d walk over to the park across from our hotel & try to catch ’em all!! The park was LOADED with Pokemon!  And also loaded with a crowd of people staring at their phones walking around.

So when I decided to make a Punch Art Card for the Stylin’ Stampin’INKspiration Team, I knew just what I wanted to make!Pokemon Punch Art Createwithcheryl.me

This little guy is called Octillery.  To make him, I used my Owl Punch & cut out a few shapes from Flower Fair Framelits.  Then I stuck on some shiny Enamel Shapes.  Pokemon Punch Art Createwithcheryl.me2In the background you’ll see By the Shore DSP embossed with little white bubbles.
