Casing the Holiday Catalog

Today I’m joining the SSINK Team to CASE the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog!  Specifically the cards on page 12.  I can’t seem to get the picture here, so you’ll have to turn to page 12 for a look, or just trust me!

I decided to pull out one of my new Designer Series Papers.  This month is “Buy 3, Get 1 FREE month for Designer Series Papers!!

This one is called Festive Birthday.  The colors are gorgeous and it’s very “festive & fun”!

Here’s another card…same idea.  I really love the little banner stamped in the corner!  That’s from Sweet Home Stamp Set.

I love being a part of the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team!!  They really challenge me to come up with new ideas and it keeps me very busy doing what I love…stamping!  Be sure & check out what they’ve done with page 12 of the Holiday Catalog.  Maybe they’ve been able to post a picture of that page!

Flourishing Phrases for MOJO451

Yesterday afternoon I received my highly anticipated box of new products from Stampin’ Up! that were JUST FOR ME!  A whole box full!!  I was stuck at where to begin.  So I headed straight to Mojo Monday for inspiration!

I wanted to use the gorgeous Designer Series Paper, Blooms & Bliss paired with Flourishing Phrases.

Here’s the card I came up with:
MOJO451 createwithcheryl.me
I used the swirl from Swirly Scribbles Thinlits under the sentiment and glued the leftover on the bottom to balance things out.  I wasn’t sold on that until I used it & now I’m in love!  Do you ever do that too?  Many times I’m not sure about a stamp until I ink it up & that’s all it takes!

New In Colors!

I’ve only had time to make 2 cards since I opened my box of  items from the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog.  I’ve been working way too much & can’t wait until the weekend when I should have a little more time to play.

Playful Palette Create With Cheryl

Don’t you love these new In Colors?!!  This is Peekaboo Peach & Sweet Sugarplum.  I had a piece of Cherry Cobbler on my desk & added that.  Wasn’t sure if it would work, but I like it.

Playful Palette Create With Cheryl (2)

You’ll be seeing a lot of this pineapple!  It’s from a new stamp set called Pop of Paradise.  The new ribbon comes in all the new In Colors & is called Ruched Ribbon.  I had to look up ruched & it means “gathering or pleating”.  So now we know.  It’s kind of crinkly.

The Designer Series Paper is called Playful Palette & had beautiful colors & patterns!

Mark your calendars for the May Card Classes!

Saturday, May 28 at 2pm or Tuesday, May 31 at 3pm.

We’ll make 4 different cards with envelopes to match for $10 (or FREE with your $20 order placed that day).
