Hello! I have been so busy stamping that I have forgotten to post. Have no fear I am going to get back on schedule and I have so much to share with you. There are two new products that Stampin'UP! has just released. The info is in the posts below and Sale-a-bration kicked off yesterday. I love this time of year because there is something for everyone. Whether you are a customer, hostess, or maybe looking to become a demonstrator like me. This year those that sign up to become Demonstrators are even more blessed in that they can receive a free Convention Registration. Contact me for more details about that special. Today I have a Milk Carton Valentine Treat for you. We recently made this at the Library and I wanted to share it with you in case you are in need of a quick and easy Treat to add Candy too.
Supplies are: Milk Carton Bigz Die, Crumb Cake Card Stock, Fresh Prints Paper Stack, Sticky Strip, Coastal Cabana Card Stock and Ruffled Ribbon, Whisper White Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Fashionable Hearts Embosslit, Hearts a Flutter Framelits, Red Glimmer Paper, Large Heart Punch, Itty Bitty Banners Stamp Set and Bitty Banners Framelits. Please let me know if you have any questions about this or any of my projects. I am always happy to help. Thanks and have a great day! Tonya
I must say that the new Card Kits that Stampin'UP! has been releasing lately have been so impressive. I featured the Everyday Occasions Card Kit last week and this week we have the new Hip Hip Hooray Card Kit. I will be ordering this kit today and will share it with you soon. Today I have a flyer below that shows all the styles of cards you can make with this kit and of course you can change them up and be a creative as you want. The cost is only $19.95 for 20 cards. The card size is smaller than the standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 but are still a great size for notes and such. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to place an order. Thanks and have a great day!

Hello and welcome to the SSINKspiration Birthday Card for today. I like to do punch art from time to time and for my youngest son I tend to do just that for his birthday which was this last weekend. He is very into the Lego of Chima and one of the characters is a Lion. I looked for an example of the lion and started from there. The colors are Crumb Cake, Island Indigo, Cajun Craze, Gold, Whisper White, Basic Black and Wild Wasabi. The stamp set is Itty Bitty Banners and I used the new Arrows Textured Impressions folder as well as the Oval Framelits and the Bitty Banners Framelits. Now for the punch list: Word Window, 1" Square, 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Small Oval Punch, Star Punch for the Christmas Punch Set (sorry the name has escaped me), Circle from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. If you have any questions please let me know and I will be happy to answer them. Thanks and don't forget to check out all the other great cards. Have a great weekend, Tonya

Hello and welcome to our Monthly Card Sketch. I love using Card Sketches they are a great starting point for a card when you are struggling for an idea or just to help INKspire you. For today's card I pulled out a new paper pack from the Occasions Catalog and started with that. I love the new pack and will be using it a lot in the upcoming weeks so be prepared. Supplies are Real Red Card Stock and Ink, Coastal Cabana Card Stock, Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack, Geometrical Stamp Set, Labels Collection Framelits, and 1 1/4" Burlap Ribbon. The ribbon was cut and I pulled threads from it to wrap around the card and tie into the bow. I hope you head over the the SSINKspiration blog and see the other great cards that the design team made. You will see more samples of the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack as it appears I am not the only one that really likes it. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day, Tonya

I am so glad you stopped by today. This is what I refer to as Birthday week at our house. Today just happens to be my oldest son's 16th Birthday and Saturday is my youngest son's 10th Birthday. So since we have so many Birthdays I thought a Birthday card and a cake topper using some of the new Occasions Products would be perfect to share with you. The topper is made with the Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper and the banners are cut with the new Banners Framelits Dies. I used Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and Basic Gray Card Stock also and added texture with the Big Shot and various embossing Folders. The Happy Birthday, bring on the cake are from the Bring on the Cake Stamp Set and were stamped on Whisper White Card Stock then punched out with the Wide Oval Punch and cut out with a Banner Framelit. I used the Bermuda Bay Baker's Twine that comes in Tag a Bag Accessory Kit. I will be adding this to the Birthday Cake for tonight. I will be sure and get a picture with it on the cake.
For the card which is also for tonight I used the same colors but added a couple of new stamp sets. The arrows are from the Geometrical Stamp Set and were hand cut out. The Make a Wish is from the Perfect Pennants Stamp Set and was inked up with the Stampin' Write Markers before I cut it out with the Banner Framelits. I used the new Arrows Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on the Bermuda Bay Card Stock and once again I used Baker's Twine from the Tag A Bag Accessory Kit. I think it will be perfect for our Birthday Boy.

Hello and welcome to our Color Challenge Monday. I love this color combo but I must admit it would not have been one I would have put together myself. The colors are listed above and we would love to have you play along with us at SSINKspiration. It is easy to add a card and be part of the fun. I used the Bring on the Cake Stamp Set and used Black Embossing Powder to really make the Happy Birthday pop. All of the Watercolor papers in the Occasions Catalog got me to thinking about using the Clear Blocks so I inked them up and stamped them on the Whisper White paper before I embossed. Then to add just a bit more pop I added a butterfly in each color with Basic Rhinestones for their bodies. Simple yet pretty and easy to make an assortment in different colors if you need a lot of cards. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day! Tonya
