Peekaboo Cheers

Today’s card is being featured on Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration. The challenge was to create a card using one of the new SAB items. Upon their release I immediately acquired the Glimmer Paper Assortment pack and the Reverse Words stamp set. For this card, I inked my “Cheers” image using the Peekaboo Peach ombre stamp pad. This created the distressed look that I was aiming for. The focal sentiment was inked up in solid Peekaboo Peach. From there, I layered on some DSP and finished off the card with a flower and a few accessories.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Today’s card is my birthday card. Okay, well it’s a birthday card and it’s my birthday, so I guess it’s my birthday card. It’s a simple card featuring some of the remaining scraps from the Festive Birthday pack. I layered on some fun colors and patterns. From there, I stamped a simple sentiment and added a punched flower. Easy peasy!

All Occasions Card Buffet

I’ve seen a few demonstrators offer this type of class and I thought I would try it out! Just like a buffet, you get to chose the cards you want to make from the various options! $24 gets you 8 cards. You can make 8 cards of one design, 4 cards each of 2 designs, 1 of each 8 designs, or some other combination. I love the idea of allowing the customer some personal choice. For my first card buffet, I went with an all occasions theme. So basically, a mix of different and interesting cards. The buffet is being offered during crop day on Sept. 11th from 10am to 6pm and on Sept. 20 @ 2pm. Email me at tobe.buffenbarger@gmail.com to secure your spot!

SSINKCC35: Red, White, and Blue Birthday

Today’s card is being featured on Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration. The challenge was to create a card using the below colors. This month’s color challenge includes one of SU’s new In Colors: Dapper Denim!

13521849_10100463497873970_5474361507832179489_n

I don’t make many patriotic cards, so I took the colors and made a bright and sunny birthday card. I pulled out an old stamp set, Flower Shop, and went to town using the triple stamping technique. In assembly, this is a such a simple card, but it definitely makes a statement.

I had fun stamping and punching out flowers and butterflies. Before my big order of new products arrive, I wanted to play with some of my older yet still loved stamp sets. The butterfly set has always been a favorite. I had to pull it out and make a garden on the card. This would be great in a variety of color combinations.

SSINKMC32: Beautiful Bouquet

10339703_10206316742261178_1735897205410241504_n

Today’s card is being featured on Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration. The challenge was to create a card using the requirements from the April Mystery Challenge.

12239524_10156211072025573_4772031166086095618_n

This month, I went with three elements: shape, color, and tool. I stamped and punched a bunch of flowers in Daffodil Delight and Mossy Meadow to create a bouquet. I added a heat embossed sentiment.  Candy dots, a bow, and a punched out sentiment completed the card. The finished card is more subdued than my usual design and palette, but it’s a nice change. I love doing these mystery challenges. I never know what I will end up creating.

SSINKMC30: Easter Baskets

10339703_10206316742261178_1735897205410241504_n

Today’s card is being featured on Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration. The challenge was to create a project using at least three of the items below. For this month’s mystery challenge, I chose four of the items: non-card project, all the colors, 2 or more punches/dies, and Easter theme.

12299110_10156211072010573_4901067100268812129_n

I made a simple Easter basket to use this coming March. I finally bought the Berry Basket die and just had to make an Easter/spring basket. After assembling the basket, I went about decorating it. I didn’t want to go too crazy, so I just added some stamped and punched flowers finished with candy dots. Very simple, but such a great little 3D project. The February stamp club ladies made their own versions last week.

SSINKCC25: Pool Party, Hello Honey, Chocolate Chip

Today’s card is featured over at Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration and features a fun color challenge: Pool Party, Hello Honey, Chocolate Chip.

September color challenge

I wanted to incorporate Hello Honey, but alas! I was out of Hello Honey cardstock. What is a girl to do? Take a brayer and color some whisper white with Hello Honey ink. For the rest of the card, I wanted to be simplistic yet fill the card with embellishments. My favorite part is the gold sequins. Love them!

SSINKCC23: Watermelon Wonder, Bermuda Bay, Crumb Cake

10339703_10206316742261178_1735897205410241504_n

Today’s card is featured over at Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration and features a fun color challenge: Watermelon Wonder, Bermuda Bay, and Crumb Cake. I love the fun clean look of the color combo. It screams summer!

Color Combo-002

IMG_1677I decided to have some fun with texture and layers. Nesting the sentiment in oval die cuts gives the card lots of visual interest without being too bulky. Adding the embossed piece of crumb cake and flowers balances out the negative layers. The last touch was to add some candy dots to the center of the flowers. SU doesn’t sell candy dots in the in-colors, but Real Red looks great with the Watermelon ink. Overall, a very cute flower card!
