SSINKCS#43 Wow Card

Here’s today’s Card Challenge (SSINKCS#43) from Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration.  I had fun with this sketch & used it for a Congratulations Card for a friend who just received a big award at work.  Hope she likes it!

Isn’t that fun?!!  Here’s what I stamped on the envelope:

This is the first time I’ve used this fun set called Everyday Hero.  It won’t be the last!  Also the first time using White Perfect Accents.  Here’s a close up to see them better:

Be sure and check out what the rest of the gals have come up with for this sketch.  Better yet, try it yourself & add your card to the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration challenge this month!

Special Card for Global Design Project #GDP074

I’ve seen lots of exciting changes to my team, the Maui Big Shots, this last month!!  We’ve added several new demos and some of my demonstrators have stepped out of their comfort zone & hosted a Make ‘N Take!  I’m so proud of them & love all the fun & motivation I’m seeing!

I needed to make a special card for a new downline & went to the Global Design Project for inspiration!  Here’s their challenge for this week:  #GDP074.

Here’s the card I came up with:

Such a fun card & I never would have come up with it except that I followed this fun challenge!  And take a look at the inside!!

Wait for it…

SSINKCS#42 Avant-Garden

Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team has a Color Challenge for you!

I’m using the FREE Sale-A-Bration stamp set called Avant-Garden.  I started with an idea I found from Amy Koenders in Georgia.

Don’t you just LOVE those colors together!

This will be one of the cards we’ll be making at our Cards, Etc. February Classes.  2 dates to choose from:

Saturday, Feb. 25, at 2pm or Monday, Feb. 27 at 10am.  RSVP to hold your spot in class!

Card Details:

  • Stamps:  Avant-Garden
  • Inks:  Old Olive & Watermelon Wonder
  • Paper:  Watermelon Wonder Card Base (5 1/2 X 11, score at 4 1/4), So Saffron (5 1/4 X 4), Whisper White (5 1/8 X 3 7/8)
  • Accessories:  Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (LOVE THESE!)
  • Details:  I’ve stamped some images directly on the card, then stamped again without re-inking

Even my wall is So Saffron!  Ha!  How many of you find yourself naming things around you in Stampin’ Up! colors?!!  I do it all the time & my husband finds it pretty funny!
