Dreams do come true……

Oh my gosh! Somebody pinch me! I cannot believe I get to finally share with you the MOST exciting news! I have been asked to be a part of the SSInkspiration Design Team! I cannot believe it! Being invited to be a part of this group is huge for me, it was one of my goals for this year and BAM! I love it when goals are set and reached!

So – for our posts today we are sharing cards that are Red, White and Blue or Star themed. Pretty fun right since it’s the 4th of July weekend!

SSInk 1July Card

This card is so quick and easy using the Work of Art stamp set and a Big Shot. I would say it takes less than 10 minutes from start to finish for this one. It was a huge hit at June’s Quick and Easy Class.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Please leave me some love in the form of a comment and be sure to subscribe so that you never miss another post. I promise there is a ton of great ideas and inspiration headed your way!

Red, White and Blue!

It’s time for another Inspire, Create and Share Blog Hop! Welcome to my blog in the hop. You may have just arrived here from Joni’s blog. Didn’t you just love her card!!!! This month, in honor of our nation’s birthday AND the new 2014-2015 Stampin’ Up! Catalog our theme is red, white and blue….with something NEW! So, here is my creation!

The inspiration for the card came from other crafty friends on Facebook and I knew that I had to use this idea for this month’s card! The colors I chose were Night of Navy, Real Red and Whisper White. I used two new sets for this design. The flag image is using stamps from the Work of Art set and the sentiment is the new Watercolor Thank You single stamp. It is very hard to see in this photo but the sentiment is embossed with iridescent ice embossing powder. I love that our regular inks have enough juice to emboss with. To finish this card off I added a few rhinestones in place of the stars.

The list of all hoppers can be found here, in case you got lost along the way!
