Hopping with Love


The month of love. Like so many other instances currently (ahem) people are usually divided on Valentine's Day. They either love the holiday or hate it. No matter your opinion on the holiday, the designer's as Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration hope that you know that we love all of our readers. So today we are sharing the love with our February Blog Hop theme of "Love Is In the Air."

You should have just left stop #5 ~Pamela at Stinky Tofu. If so, you are in the right place! If you get off track, or a link happens to not work, you'll find a full lineup at the bottom of this post. 

I mentioned love earlier. We LOVE to hear from our readers. Please share the love and leave a comment for each designer of what you loved about their post or project. 


I love the Paper Pumpkin kits that Stampin' Up! offers. A monthly surprise, it's like Christmas comes 13 times a year! Plus they are always spot on for the time of year. The January kit provided enough supplies to make 24 of the treat bags featured here. 

They are super cute, and I'm so excited that there is enough for everyone in my office, plus my book club that meets this weekend! Quick, easy and done! (Plus who doesn't LOVE handmade AND chocolate?!?!) 

In addition, the "I adore you," "For an amazing friend," and "just a little thanks" stamps from the included set can be used year round! For that matter, the "Love" would be great for anniversary or wedding cards.

Speaking of cards, this kit could have been broken down and made in to cards instead. I didn't because I need all of the treat bags for my groups. Guess I should go see if there are refills of the kit available for purchase! 

Thanks for stopping by today! I LOVE that you are here! Now, head on over to see Melissa, the Stamp Doc by clicking that "next" button below!

A Birthday Blog Hop


This month on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop we are celebrating everyone by creating birthday cards for everyone. As you hop along you'll find cards for kids, men, women, and some that can be used for any of the three. 

You have probably arrived here from Pamela's blog ~ Stinky Tofu; stop #4 on the SSINK Blog Hop. As you hop along, please leave some love for each designer so they know you were there. If you get off track, or a link doesn't work, you'll find a full listing of the hop participants at the bottom of the post. 


My card could be given to anyone for their birthday. It features a few products from the 2017 Occasions catalog. 

*Cardstock ~ Real Red, Whisper White
*Designer Series Paper ~ Party Animal
*Paper ~ Silver Glimmer
*Ink ~ Pacific Point
*Stamp set ~ Love Sparkles
*Edgelits dies ~ Star Blast

Even though Love Sparkles and the Star Blast Edgelits weren't necessarily intended to be used together, I love how well they coordinate. 

Thanks for stopping in. I hope I've INKspired you to make some unusual matches with your crafting supplies! Next up, head over to see what Cheryl has created by click on that next button.

2017 Occasions Catalog Countdown: Falling In Love


Today is the last day of our countdown because the 2017 Occasions Catalog is now live! The Falling In Love Suite is going to be very popular for gorgeous cards and lots of wedding cards!


I used the Falling In Love Designer Series Paper and Lace Doilies from the product suite. I also used the Love Sparkles stamp set from the Occasions catalog that I received free from On Stage in November.

Stop by SSINKspiration for more samples of the Falling In Love product suite.

Quick & Easy

Today at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration we are focusing on quick and easy cards because sometimes you don't have a lot of time to sit down and plan and make your card.


I love Project Life cards for making quick and easy cards. The PL card and stamp both came from the Hello Lovely card collection and accessory pack.

Thanks for stopping in for the quick and easy INKspiration. Remember to stop over at SSINK for more quick and easy ideas.

2017 Occasions Catalog Countdown: Urban Underground


Tomorrow is the day that the 2017 Occasions Catalog goes live! How excited are you? That means we're on our next to last day of the countdown. Today we are featuring the Urban Underground Suite. 


I love this suite because our school colors are black and gold, so I was instantly drawn to it as soon as I saw it! I used two patterns from the Urban Underground Speciality Designer Series Paper. The darker piece I embossed with the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I added a star from the Urban Underground Embellishments

The stamp is from the Tin of Cards set and then I used the Stitched Shapes framelits. 

Head over to Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration to see other ideas for the Urban Underground product suite. See you tomorrow for our final day of countdown!

2017 Occasions Catalog Countdown: Succulent Garden



As a plant lover, the Succulent Garden Suite in the 2017 Occasions Catalog is one of my favorites. I also love all of the colors that it includes, and there's gingham paper *swoon*.

We are only two days away from these products being available for order! Are you excited?


See that yummy Sweet Sugarplum gingham paper? Both prints are from the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper. You can also catch a glimpse of the Sweet Sugarplum Succulent Garden 3/8' Ribbon Combo Pack. It also comes with a spool of Whisper White, and these ribbons are so soft and fluffy.

I also used the Oh So Succulent stamp set and Succulent Framelit Dies. The framelits are a must so you don't have to fussy cut around all those plants! The greeting is from another stamp set in the Occasions catalog, Window Shopping.

You can find more Succulent Garden sneak peaks at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration today. Come back tomorrow when we'll feature my other favorite product suite from this catalog: Urban Underground.

#SSINKCC41 Color Challenge



I've been playing so much with new products lately, that for today's color challenge, I decided to focus on current products from the Annual Catalog that I haven't used in awhile.


The stamp set is Pretty Kitty. I colored the image with Blender Pens and the ink colors from the color challenge. The patterned paper is from the 2015-2017 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack.

Head over to Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration to see the other color challenge projects today, and then submit your own! Also, check back in a few hours for another Occasions sneak peek.
