Stylin' Stampin' Inkspiration Masculine Monday

Hello everyone!  I hope you had a good weekend!  We kept our weekend pretty low key as we try and battle off the last of this sickness that has plagued our house for the last week or so.  Thankfully, we are past the worst of it - and just one of us, my son, is left with that nagging cough.

Today is Monday, and that means that the design team members at Stylin' Stampin' Inkspiration have some fun stuff to share with you.  Today we are all sharing masculine cards.

Here is my card:

I love the Nailed It stamp set.  I lined up the three tools on my grid paper, and then stuck them to one block.  They were stamped in Archival Basic Grey Ink, and then watercolored using the new pencils, and the Delightful Dijon ink pad.

That is all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by!

Friday Favorites: Favorite Sale-a-Bration Items

Hello everyone!  I hope you had a good week.  I'm so happy we've made it to the weekend!  We had an icky tummy bug go through our house earlier this week.   The kind of thing you don't wish on anyone.  But I'm so happy to report that we are all feeling much better now, and regular life has resumed.  

Friday means it is time for Friday Favorites over at Stylin' Stampin' Inkspiration.  Today, the design team is sharing their favorite Sale-a-Bration items.  I have chosen to share the So Very Much stamp set.  I love the big thank you in this set.  It really makes for fast, beautiful cards!

Here is the set:

That is all I have to share for today.  Be sure to check out the Stylin' Stampin' Inkspiration blog for more Sale-a-Bration inspiration!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

Stylin' Stampin' Inkspiration Challenge

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to Monday!  I hope you had a good weekend.  I had a great weekend.  On Saturday I hosted a meeting for the members of my team.  Yesterday, I held two of my monthly classes.  The first was a Birthday Card Stamp-a-Stack, and the second was a Quick and Easy cards class.

Monday means challenge day over at Stylin' Stampin' Inkspiration.  Today we have an Inkspiration Challenge going on.  I wasn't able to get my card posted in time to be with the Design Team posts.  But, I made a card, and wanted to play along anyway!

Here is the Inkspiration:

 Here is my card:

I tried to copy the ombre effect on the Inspiration heart.  I used the Sweet and Sassy Framelits to cut a heart out of the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper.  I then sponged Pink Pirouette, Flirty Flamingo, and Melon Mambo onto the heart to create the ombre effect.  

That is all I have to share for today.  I hope you have a great day! 
Thanks for stopping by!

Stylin' Stampin' Inkspiration Birthday Hop

Welcome to the Stylin' Stampin' Inkspiration January Blog Hop!  This month we are sharing birthday ideas for everyone.  I chose to make a kid birthday card.  But, I think this card really could go for just about anyone.

As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number 7 on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop - Jennifer, from Jenny G Paper Crafts. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.

I don't do fun folds very often, and I thought that a little different fold would be extra fun for a kid card.

Here is my card:

I used some designer series paper from the Festive Birthday pack on the front two sections of my z-fold card.  I used the Sprinkles of Life stamp set, and coordinating punch for the cupcake on the front.  I did a watercolor wash on my Whisper White card stock before stamping my images.  The cupcake bottom, and candle were cut out by hand.  For my greeting, I used the Any Occasion set from Sale-a-Bration.

Next up on our blog hop is Tobe.  She always has fun things to share!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

SSInk - $50 Bundle

Hello everyone!  Welcome to Wednesday.  I hope your week is going well.   

Today over at Stylin' Stampin' Inkspiration we are sharing $50 bundles.  Sale-a-Bration is in full swing, and we want to help you come up with ideas to get more exclusive, free items!

The products used on my card are all from the 2016-2017 Idea Book & Catalog, and total up to $50 exactly.  (I did not count the paper trimmer or adhesives in my bundle.)  I didn't use any Sale-a-Bration items on my project, so that this bundle could be used to choose any Sale-a-Bration item you wanted!

Here is my card:

I love the Stylized Birthday single stamp!  I enjoy the fun font it has.  You can use this stamp for any kind of birthday card.  You can see each item in my bundle below. 

That is all I have to share for today, be sure to check out what the other Design Team members have come up with over at Stylin' Stampin' Inkspiration.
