He Is Risen Banner for Easter

Allelujah!  Christ is risen!  Easter is the most important celebration for Christians and I wanted to make a banner to remind me and others in my home about this wonderful event!

It’s challenging for me to get a good photo of this project, but I hope you get the idea. Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper makes a pretty background for my banner.  I just added some coordinating cardstock, some Easter Stamps and butterfly punches.  Don’t you just love how all the Stampin’ Up! products coordinate so nicely!

Here’s a closer look:

Notice the sparkle on the cloth draped over the cross!  Wink of Stella!

Love the Butterflies Thinlits, especially with a Vellum butterfly on top!


The supplies for this project are listed at the bottom of this post.  Most of them are RETIRING PRODUCTS, so be sure to grab them now before they’re gone!!

Be sure and check out what the other SSINK Designers have made for this Easter Theme!

Sale-A-Bration Favorite!

There are so many great Sale-A-Bration Items, it was hard to choose a favorite!  I love the Delicate Details and Avant Garden, but my current favorite is Tasty Trucks!  Totally cute and fun to play around with!!

Stampin’ Up! has so many items that coordinate!  This cute Designer Series Paper is called Tasty Treats and the sentiment on the bottom is from Sprinkles of Life.

Here I made a similar card, but changed it into a Baby Card!

Isn’t that fun?!!  It started with a mistake where I smeared the ice cream cones & then had to cover them up with something…a kitty!  Mistakes often end up with cuter cards, don’t you think?!

The bad news is…you can’t buy this stamp set!

The good news is…you can get it for FREE!!

Just place any $50 order during Sale-A-Bration (now through March 31st) and you get to select an item from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog!

I’m excited to tell you that I’ve been selected to be a part of the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspriation team!!  They are a group of very creative & talented Stampin’ Up! demonstrators that keep busy with fun ideas & challenges.  Be sure & click on the link HERE to see some of their ideas!

Today is my first official day as a team member & the theme today is Fourth of July (or red/white/blue).  I’m hosting a block party this weekend, so I came up with this little treat to give out.

SSINK 4th of Jul3

The Mini Treat Bag Thinlits were the perfect size for my Red Vines.  Yum!  I remember eating these at the movies when I was a kid.

SSINK 4th of July2

Wish you could see the sparkle on the little swirls where I’ve swiped it with Wink of Stella!

SSINK 4th of Jul3

This bag, especially with the doily, makes me think of the banners on Makawao Avenue here on Maui.  Most people probably don’t realize this, but we have lots of cowboys (Paniolos) in Hawaii and a big rodeo is held each year on July 4th on my island of Maui.

Being a part of this team is a big challenge for me, and it’s sure to keep me stampin’!  My favorite thing to do!!  I’d appreciate comments any time!  Please subscribe to my blog via email (on the right bar of this page) so that you don’t miss anything!

Baker’s Box for Easter

This club’s projects will all center around Easter!

Lamb Baker's Box Createwithcheryl.me

This cute little box (idea is from Mickey Roberts) is simple to make using the Baker’s Box Thinlits.  The size is perfect to hold a handful of Easter treats (it’s a bit smaller than a cupcake).  And don’t you love that lamb?!   I colored him in with my Blender Pen using ink pressed to the lid of the ink pad cover.  I actually separated the “happy easter” from the lamb to make it easier to use for baby cards.  I’ll show you how to do this at Club.

March Club will be Saturday, March 12 at 2 pm at my house in Haiku or Sunday, March 13 at 1 pm in Pukalani.  Guests are always welcome & just need to place a $25 order or pay $10.

Here’s another project I just love:

Work of Art Easter Egg Createwithcheryl.me

This pretty egg is decorated using Work of Art!  My favorite thing is the sentiment embossed using Melon Mambo Embossing Powder!  You can’t see it, but the Daffodil Delight stripes are sparkling with Wink of Stella!

Hope you can join us this month!

Card in a Box…Part 2

Yesterday I showed you the Bear in a Box we’ll be making at class this month.  You’ll have another option if you want to make an elegant Birthday Card in a Box.

I just love the “85” and the sentiments!  There are so many ways you can personalize this card to make it your own.
