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.

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!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org to secure your spot!
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!
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.

Today’s at Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration, we’re counting down to the new Stampin’ Up Annual Catalog! I cannot wait for June 1st to get here.

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.
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.

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.
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.

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!

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!
I 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!
