July Stamp Class

The middle of the month always means STAMP CLASS!  This month's class is next Sunday, July 15, and as always, we will make some awesome projects, like these....

This bright and happy diagonal cut card is made using the pretty new Garden Impressions 6"x 6" DSP.  The Melon Mambo cardbase makes the colorful paper pop.


I've been waiting to use this new set called Dandelion Wishes.

First I scattered Blushing Bride seed fluffs (not sure what you call them!) around the outside of the cardbase.  Then I adhered the next two layers at angles to add some "movement" to the card.  Purposely adhering something on crocked is harder than you think!




This wreath was made using the new Bouquet Blooms stamp set and Gatefold Blossoms Framelits.  I CASEd (copy and share everything) the card from the annual catalog, but made a few little changes to make it my own.  Remember to use the catalog as a guide for your projects - you can always find great ideas in it.




This sweet card is my favorite of the class.  It features the awesome new Stitched Labels Framelits and a few of the lovely new soft colors from the color revamp.

The cardbase is Thick Very Vanilla and the first layer is the new Petal Pink.  See the embossing in the pink?  That's from one of the framelits that embosses that pattern, but doesn't cut out anything.  Fun!

The fancy stitched center label is the new Soft Sea Foam, the center oval is the regular Very Vanilla with Mint Macaron ink.  Pop up a couple stitched hearts and you're done!  Love it!




These are just 4 of the 6 projects we will be making this month.  The last two will be a surprise using a limited time product bundle called Blended Season that I think you will really like.

Happy July!

SSINK - Case a Design Team Member - ME!

Each month the Stampin' Stylin' INKspiration design team "cases" one of our members. Copy and share everything, simply put CASE,  can help you create projects when you're stuck for ideas. Believe me, it works!




Last year I made Valentine cards using 6 x 6 DSP and the pleated skirt technique.  It's a little trickier with the smaller paper, but it still is fun to do.  So I chose that card to case.














For the base of the card I used Thick Whisper White cardstock.  The pretty polka dot paper is from the In-Color DSP 6"x6" stack.  LOVE the new Blueberry Bliss.

I used my go-to Stitched Shape Framelits and Layered Ovals for the center, with the happy birthday verse from best birds then scattered a couple fire flies from Jars of Love around.

To see what the other design team members case'd from me, check out our blog and enjoy!

    SSINK July Color Challenge





    I hope you will join us for our July color challenge - it has some great colors to play with; Balmy Blue, Pacific Point, Call me Clover and Crumb Cake! I was fine with the blues and green, but the Crumb Cake threw me off a bit, so I used it as a neutral card base and I think it really worked!


    I've made many cups of coffee with the Coffee Cafe stamp set and Coffee Cups Framelits, but never a latte.  The vellum top and striped straw makes it pop!

    The 6x6 In-Color DSP pack is turning out to be one of my favorite new products.  Stripes and polka dots....gotta love it!



    Hop over to the SSINKspiration blog and see what the other team members made for this challenge.
