Quick and Easy Card for Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration

Quick and Easy Cards
I made two versions of this card, one for a class and one for me to use personally.  This first card uses the All Abloom Paper Stack which is in the Annual Catalog.  This is my favorite pattern in the pack!  This card is one of the Birthday cards for ladies that we will be making at my Birthday Stamp-a-Stack in July.  Everyone who attends will be getting the All Abloom DSP Stack to use on their cards!
This second card uses Confetti Celebration Designer Series Paper.  I couldn't decide which card I like better so posted both.  Marc liked this one better so I used it on the Design Team blog.

Don't you love the sequins I attached on the paper?  They are in the 2013-2015 In-colors.  I used the Strawberry Slush because that is the color featured in the two papers (and the color I used on the cute flower).  Speaking of that cute flower, it's the new individual stamp called Bloom for You.  And guess what?  There's a matching punch called "Fun Flower" that makes it so easy to pop out this flower.

Friday Favorites: Chevron Background Stamp and For the Birds

Good Morning!  Here's my Friday Favorites and it's two items: the Positively Chevron background Stamp and the For the Birds Stamp Set.  I stamped Island Indigo on the Island Indigo Card Stock - tone on tone. We will be making this card tonight as part of our stamp-a-stack class making Thinking of You and Sympathy cards!  Are you interested in purchasing a set of both cards?  Contact me to find out how!
Super easy card... stamp the background, then stamp the birdie... then color in using a blender pen and ink... punch and adhear.  So easy!  Do you want to know the other Friday Favorites for our Design Team?  Click on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Team Logo at the top!  :)

Fab Friday #44 Color Challenge - New "In-colors"


Welcome to our new in-color challenge over at Fab Friday!
I recently realized that these colors are similar to the colors in the rainbow, minus the red!  When I first saw them, I was less than excited.  I didn't really think they were that pretty.  But now I love them!  I especially love the Tangelo Twist.  Typically you'd think I'd be in love with the Blackberry Bliss, however I am not!  I do like it, but it's a bit dark if you ask me!  It almost looks black (duh Pam, "black"berry... LOL).
I needed some quick thank you's for customers and this was perfect!  I love the chevron punch and it works perfect with the new Arrows Embossing folder!  BTW, do you love this new sentiment?  It's called "Let Your Hair Down" and it's a hostess set that you can earn for hosting a workshop or private class!  OR you can earn it when you participate in my club!  Are you a club member?  If you aren't, you need to join NOW ~ email to find out how you join.

See you tomorrow for another fun post!  Thanks for following me!

Endless Birthday Wishes and a Fun Fold!

The more that I look at this card, the more I fall in love with it!  It's no surprise to anyone how much I love the Brights Collection of colors and the new Sweet Taffy Designer Series Paper works with the colors in the brights collection perfectly!

I used the new Endless Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set.  When this set came out, I had to have it!  It's super cute and has TONS of words that you can put together to say what YOU want to say... 
As you can see I added the Chevron punch outs and three Daffodil Delight stars from the new Itty Bitty Punch Pack!  The other colors I used are Tempting Turquoise and Melon Mambo. Oh' wow! I haven't shown you the new Label Thinlits Die - it's not exactly new but it's new to me since this is my first card using it!

Have I told you lately how grateful I am that you picked me as your demonstrator?  If I haven't.... let me tell you:
Thank you so much!  I appreciate your business!

Serene Silhouettes isn't exactly new, but it's new to me!  I wanted to share a new technique with my Card Class ladies and this is what I came up with!

Are you wondering how I created this background?  Stampin' Up! came out with a video showing this technique and I just "copied" it.  Check out the video and then check out my supply list for more specifics on ink and such!
Marker Colors used:
Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Pool Party 
***These colors are not sold individually, if you want to purchase them, they are in 3 different color families.  You can use ANY color combination you want to create this look!!!***
