Have you ever tried the Reflection Technique? I think you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to do! Today at Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspriation we’re focusing on the Reflection Technique and hope you’ll play along with our challenge!
I’m not really very good at sponging, but getting better with practice. Here’s a card I made with a left-over piece from a card I messed up on. I think I like it even better than the card above! What do you think?
I’m trying to earn the Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip to Greece in 2019, but have quite a ways to go! Here you can see my progress! Looks like I just passed Mexico!
The more I use these new In Colors, the more I just LOVE THEM!!
I was asked by my BFF Susie (my Honolulu buddy from single days…) to make a special card for her friend who was retiring from teaching. Special card makes me think: Card in a Box!
Aren’t those colors gorgeous?!! And I thought the chair & drink were the quintessential “retirement”! The beautiful Designer Series Paper is called Naturally Eclectic. I paired it with the In Color Designer Series Paper called Fresh Florals.
The sentiments from Wild About Flowers mainly focus on retirement. Notice how the word retirement is 2-toned. That was simple to do because the word retirement is a separate stamp. I stamped it in Lemon Lime Twist, then just dipped the bottom in Fresh Fig.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Featuring Falling In Love Suite…
I needed a Retirement Card and as I thumbed through my new Falling In Love Designer Series Paper, I noticed many beautiful papers that could be used for any occasion. Don’t you just love the colors?!!
Originally I had planned to use the other side of the paper with the butterflies, but I changed my mind. Here’s a picture of the butterfly side.
Which paper do you like best? I keep going back & forth.

Maybe the design team will show us some of those goodies!
