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.


2017 Occasions Catalog Countdown: Sending Love

The 2017 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog is by far by favorite catalog in quite some time. All of the products are fabulous!

The Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration countdown continues today with the Sending Love Suite. As you can imagine, it is primarily geared towards valentine's day, however there are SOOOO many more uses for it!

This thank you card features the Sending Love Designer Series Paper. Had I not told you, would you have thought it was valentine themed paper?

Other products used that are not in the Occasions catalog are the Stitched Shaped framelits, Thankful Thoughts stamp set, and Polka Dot embossing folder.

Head over to Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration to find other sneak peeks and ideas for the Sending Love Suite. Come back tomorrow to see my favorite product suite: Succulent Garden!
