SSINK Spring Fever Blog Hop

Hello everyone!  Welcome to the April Stylin' Stampin' Inkspiration Blog Hop!  This month the design team has a little bit of Spring Fever!  All of the projects will feature something having to do with Spring.  

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 (3) on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop - (Cheryl from Create with Cheryl). 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.

My card features butterflies.  I love butterflies.  They are so delicate and beautiful.
Here is my card:

I used some products from the Falling In Love Suite from the Occasions Catalog.  You can see this product suite featured on pages 50-52 of the 2017 Occasions Catalog.  Unfortunately, the Falling In Love Designer Series Paper has already sold out.  But there are many other products in the suite that are still available, and most are even discounted!  (Like the Falling Petals Embossing Folder that I also used.  It is on sale now for $4.25.)

That is all I have to share for today.  Next up on the hop is Tobe, from The Craft Sea, and I know she has something fun to share!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

    International Blog Highlights - Wedding

    Hello everyone!  Welcome to the April edition of Kylie Bertucci's International Stampin' Up! Blog Highlight.  This month I am competing with demonstrators from all around the globe for votes.  The great part for you is that you get to see a bunch of great wedding card ideas!  Be sure to vote for your favorites!

    Here is my card:

    I used the Detailed Floral Thinlits to create the front of my card.  I used the dies on a piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock, and then popped it up using some Foam Adhesive Strips over a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  This is matted in Night of Navy, and then attached to a Smoky Slate card base.

    In this photo, you can see the fun dimension from the vanilla with the foam strips.

    A friend of my kids is getting married next weekend, and I made this card specifically in her wedding colors.  I'm so happy to have this finished for her.  

    Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Friday Favorites: Embossing Folders

    Hello everyone!  TGIF!  I hope you had a good week!  I am in San Diego, CA this weekend for Stampin' Up!'s OnStage Local event.  I am so very excited to be here!  I will spend today as a volunteer helping to setup for our events, and then tonight I am so happy to have earned an invitation to CentreStage.  This is a dinner and training event for demonstrators who have earned the title of Silver Elite and above.  

    I can't wait to share some fun pictures from this trip with you next week!

    Today at Stylin' Stampin' Inkspiration we have another edition of Friday Favorites.  This week the design team and I are sharing our favorite embossing folders.

    My favorite embossing folder right now is the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

    Here is my card:

    I love this folder, and really think it can go with any project you are working on.

    That is all I have to share for today.  Be sure to check out the Stylin' Stampin' Inkspiration Blog for more embossing folder favorites!

    Top Ten International Highlight Winners Blog Hop

    Welcome everyone!  Today is the Top Ten Winners Blog Hop from Kylie Bertucci's International Highlights from March.  Thanks so much for voting for my card!  I'm so excited to be able to participate in this blog hop for the second month in a row.

    Our International Highlights projects, and our top 10 winners blog hop both feature the All Things Thanks stamp set found on page 35 of the Occasions Catalog.  This stamp set is great because you can use it to make a Thank You card for any occasion.

    Here is my card:

    I used a piece of watercolor paper, and my watercolor pencils to make a watercolor wash background.  I then stamped the swirl from Swirly Bird stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black all over the background.  

    That is all I have to share for today!  Next up on our hop is my Austrailian Demonstrator friend, Petra Tailor from Tailored Craftiness.  I know she has something fabulous to share!

    Thanks for stopping by!
