SSINK Sparkle & Shine Happy Wishes

The theme for today’s Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration is Sparkle & Shine!  I’ve been waiting for an idea to use Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit and chose it because of the shine in these cute tassles!  Added a little bling & silver embossing & it totally Sparkles & Shines!  And that paper is perfect:  Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper.

SSINK Case the Design Team Member: Tobe Buffenbarger

 

Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team is CASE-ing our team member, Tobe Buffenbarger.  Tobe makes beautiful cards and here’s her card that I chose to CASE:

I liked this card, mainly because of the Washi Tape!  And just the whole layout.  Here’s what I came up with:

This is the new Specialty Printed With Love Designer Series Paper!  So shiny & beautiful!  And I love how easy it is to coordinate all the Stampin’ Up! products!  Did you notice that sparkly Calypso Coral ribbon?  You can get that FREE with Sale-a-Bration when you spend just $50.  It’s actually a set of 3 different ribbons! Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay, & Calypso Coral, all shimmery.

Head over to the SSINK Design Page to see some other ideas CASED from Tobe!

#SSINK Doilies & Lace

Good morning!  I love Fridays because the weekend is almost here.  This weekend I look forward to New Years and plan to spend lots of time decorating my beautiful Love Today Planner Kit!  Washi Tape, colored pens, and brainstorming about my goals for 2018!  You can order one HERE & get yourself organized with this inspiring journal!

Today I’m showing you a card using doilies & lace!  It’s fun to browse around Pinterest looking for ideas for Vintage cards, but I’m not sure this qualifies as “Vintage” with these bright colors.   What do you think?

I LOVE the colors in this card!  Lemon Lime Twist & Pool Party.  And the more I use the Quilted Christmas Bundle, the more I like it!!  The Designer Series Paper is Painted Autumn.  I colored the Rhinestone using Pool Party Stampin’ Blends.

Below are easy ordering links for the products used on today’s card:

 

 

SSINK Winter Wonderland Carols of Christmas

Merry Christmas!!  After all the rushing around & busyness, it’s here.  A day to pause and reflect on the greatest gift the world has been given.  A day to be grateful.  A day to share.

I’m sharing some 3 X 3 cards with you today for our theme:  Winter Wonderland.  I love all the little details in these cards:  glitter on the trees, a tiny deer, and that cute silver mini sequins. The colors used are Tranquil Tide, Pool Party, and Whisper White.

And we’ve got snowed on a couple of weeks ago!- not at my house, but on my mountain- Haleakala!  Photo courtesy Aki'Ra

Although it may sound strange, snowfall in Hawaii is not rare. It snows here every year, but only at the summits of the highest volcanoes on the Big Island – Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea – which are at an elevation above 13,000 feet, as well as Haleakala on the island of Maui, which is at an elevation of just over 10,000 feet.

As you can see, a stack of 3 X 3 cards fits perfectly in the pizza box.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a wonderful day!!

Oh… before you go, be sure & stop by the SSINK PAGE for more Winter Wonderland ideas!

SSINK Clean & Simple Christmas Using Merry Little Labels

I have a Clean & Simple Project to share with you today.  Tags using Merry Little Labels Stamp Set and the coordinating punch, Everyday Label Punch.  The colors all come together well using Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper.  I haven’t punched a hole in the top of these tags yet, because I just might put them on the front of a card.  That would look pretty with a little embossed paper in the background…

For this tag, I just punched Old Olive cardstock & laid it sideways.

Tag #2 has some Black Mini Sequin Trim peaking out.  Love how tiny this is!

Don’t you love the plaid paper in this DSP?!!  This one has a gold stitched shape circle underneath and is embellished with Gold Faceted Gems.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure and go to the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Page for more Clean & Simple Christmas ideas!!

SSINK Case the Design Team Member- Darla Roberts

Today the Stylin’ Stampin INKspiration team will be CASE-ing Darla Roberts!  Darla took a break from our team for a bit last year when she was going through lots of stress and challenges, but she’s BACK!  I finally got to meet Darla at On Stage a few weeks ago & immediately felt like we were old friends!  She is full of energy & enthusiasm & has a heart of gold.  Love you, Darla!!

Here’s the card I made after browsing Darla’s Blog, Stampin’ With Darla.

And here’s Darla’s card:

Same card.  Different colors.  The leaf stamp from Colorful Seasons is so pretty!  Thanks, Darla, for the idea for this simple card!

Can’t wait to see what everyone else CASED from Darla!  CLICK HERE to go to the SSINK BLOG!  And thanks for stopping by today!

SSINK Favorite Holiday Catalog Suite: Quilted Christmas

My favorite Suite from the Holiday Catalog is Quilted Christmas!  The more I play around with it, the more ideas pop into my head!

This suite includes Christmas Quilt Stamp Set, Quilt Builder Framelits Dies, Quilted Christmas DSP, 1/4″ Ribbon and Stitched Felt Embellishments.

Recently I challenged my downline, the Maui Big Shots!, to start using their DBWS and to add an event to their blog.  Ramona Corson and Mary Green met the challenge, so this is one of the gifts they’ll receive from me:

I just love the Pizza Boxes!!  They’re sturdy and glossy white and simple to assemble.  They are the perfect size to hold a set of 3 X 3 cards.  And now there are 3 X 3 envelopes available for purchase!

I’ll be having a Quilted Christmas Suite Class on Monday, Nov. 27th at 10 am.  For $50, you’ll go home with the Christmas Quilt Bundle plus a pile of Stitched Felt Embellishments!  

We’ll make 3 cards plus a 3-D item!  RSVP by 11/18 to hold your spot in this fun class.  One lucky attendee will win the Quilted Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder!

Be sure & head over to the SSINK Blog Page to see more Favorite Holiday Catalog Suites!

SSINK CASE the Catalog

Why don’t I do this more often?!!  I’m talking about CASE-ing the catalog.  I’ve been wanting to play around with my new stamp set, So Many Shells, so I went to page 38 in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.

Well, not a big surprise, but I can’t find my Mini Treat Bag Thinlits!!  It’s here somewhere!  So I made a card instead, & LOVE IT!  What do you think?

I just love 2-step stampin’!  And I love that new Ombre Ribbon!!  Supplies listed at the bottom of this post.

#SSINKTC47 Technique Challenge: Ink, Spray, Smash

Today we have a fun Technique Challenge for you!!  Stampin’ Up! recently added Glossy Cardstock to the catalog, so we decided on a challenge that uses it.  It was easy & fun & the results are so pretty!!  I think you’re okay without the gloves.

Here’s what I made…another Mermaid Card!!

Isn’t it gorgeous?!!  And every card is unique!

I had to fussy cut the mermaid, which wasn’t too bad.  But here’s another card where I avoided the cutting!

I still really like it.  What do you think?  Fussy cut or no??  For my club members… let me know which one you’d like to make!  We just might have to try out this technique!

That glittery star is a new accessory:  2016-2018 In Color Glitter Acrylic Shapes.  There are little stars, flowers, hearts, & arrows.  Really fun!
