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!
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.
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!

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.
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!
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. In the background you’ll see By the Shore DSP embossed with little white bubbles.
Here’s a picture of the inside:
Stamps: Seaside Shore, Places You’ll Go
Inks: Versamark, Stazon Black, Tangerine Tango
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Soft Sky, Tangerine Tango, Basic Black, Whisper White, Vellum, By the Shore DSP

Hope you enjoyed my card today! Please leave me a comment! How many of you have played Pokemon Go? I know you’re out there…
Today at Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration, we are sharing ideas for making Simple Cards. I actually have a hard time doing this & find myself adding more & more… But, especially for my Card Classes, participants really appreciate a cute, simple card! Here’s what I came up with:
The star of the show here is the Designer Series Paper By The Shore. Makes a perfect Hawaii card, I must say!
