Christmas Sneak Peek

Guess what my stampin’ friends?! Today at SSInk we are sharing cards using  this year’s Ronald McDonald House Charities stamp set.

My Hero

When you purchase this stamp set, Stampin’ Up! will donate $3 to this great charity that helps support families who are away from home receiving medical treatment for their children. My card also features a stamp set from the upcoming Holiday Catalog.

SSInk Hostess Aug

Isn’t this Santa just the cutest thing ever! He is from the new set Cookie Cutter Christmas and has been cut out using the coordinating punch. I wish that you could see the Wink of Stella on the edges of Santa’s suit, it’s so pretty! The sentiment for my card is one that is part of the RMHC set, My Hero!

Something for baby

Hello stampers! Hope that you are having a great day! Today at SSInk, we are sharing cards and creations using one of the fantastic hosts sets offered this year.

ZanziCard

This card is using an adorable image from the Love you Lots set, located on page 199 of the Annual Catalog. I made this card for some good friends of ours who had their first baby this summer. Their theme in the nursery has been elephants and I knew this would be just perfect. The Z is for the babies nickname and was so easy to add with the Large Letters Framelits. The sentiment and safety pin come from the Better Together stamp set and were a great addition to this card, don’t you agree?

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I would love to hear your thoughts on my card and be sure to subscribe to the blog so that you never miss another post!

August Sketch Challenge from SSInk

Happy Monday friends! I am so excited to bring you another weekly challenge from my stampin’ pals over at SSInk. This week we have a very fun sketch challenge for you.

#SSINKCS36

Here is my card

SSInkSC36

I especially love sketch challenge because for me designing a layout can be the most challenging part of putting a card together. When the layout is in front of me, it is easier to choose stamps that fit and then run with it. I hope that you will play along with us this week! You can link up to your blog or add it to our Facebook group.

The card you never want to make

We have all been there – we need a sympathy card and we don’t have any on hand. For me, it’s the card I never want to make. It is always so hard to create something comforting during a stressful time and so I always try to keep a couple of them in my stash. Today at SSInk, we are sharing our creations.

SSInk Sympathy

This is a pretty bright and colorful card for a sad occasion but I feel that a ray of hope in the darkness can be nice for the recipient. The Bliss and Blooms Designer Series Paper is perfect for this because it uses rich colors such as Rich Razzleberry, a soft color such a Blushing Bride and the creamy neutral of Crumb Cake. The mega mosaic technique made quick a unique background for this card.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are having a great week so far. I would love to hear your thoughts on my card and be sure to subscribe to my posts while you are here!

Monday Color Challenge

It’s Monday! That means it is time for another weekly challenge with the great team at SSInk. This week we are playing with these fun colors!

SSInk Aug Color Block

At first, I wasn’t really sure about these but once I got working with them, I fell in love! Here is my card

SSInk1Aug

This was the first time I have used the flowers from Jar of Love. I love how easy it was to cut them out with the big shot using the coordinating framelits. These colors are perfect for the time of year here in Idaho. The colors are getting richer and deeper while the dog days of summer are very much upon on.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope that you are inspired to play along with us this week and I would love to know what you think about my project! Be sure to subscribe to my site while you are here so that you never miss another post!

DIY DSP – Oh yes you can!

Hello friends! It’s a super hot day today in Boise – perfect to stay inside and craft. Today at SSInk we are making our own DSP, or designer series paper to use on projects. It is so easy! Just pick a stamp or set and go to town covering a section of cardstock. Then use it just as you would use DSP.

SSInk DIYDSP card

Botanical Blooms is the perfect stamp set to use for this. It has many different images to choose from and you can use any color depending on the feel you are going for. I am still very much about summer so bright, tropical colors were calling me.

I hope that you will try making your own DSP with stamps very soon! Thanks so much for stopping by today. I would love to hear from you and what you think of my project. You can also subscribe so that you never miss another post!
