3 Guest Designers From My Stampin' Up! Team

Hello Friends,

Today's 3 Guest Designers are members of my talented Stampin' Up! Team, The Ink-Spirations!  You're sure to be inspired by these cards made both local and long distance Team Members.  Which one inspired you?

Enjoy Life Stampin' Up! Crystal Cleveland

Crystal Cleveland inspired us with her Enjoy Life Card.  She had two different takes on the same card.   She inked up a clear block with yellow and blue ink and stamped on watercolor paper.  For the first card she used the smooth side of her watercolor paper and for the second card she used the not so smooth side.  We all agreed the second card looks like cyclists in the rain.  She used the hinged system of her Stamparatus to stamp the cyclists repeatedly.  We were all amazed at the way the wheels lined up.

Touches of Texture Stampin' Up! Carol Dennison

Carol Dennison wowed us with her gorgeous card using the Share What You Love Designer Paper and the Touches of Texture Designer paper (which is a perfect compliment to her designer paper.  Love all her little details that pulled her card together-the for you tag, the Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon, the lacy stamped oval-everything!

2018-2019 Stampin' Up! In Colors Tara Griffin

Tara Griffin showed off the all the bright and beautiful 2018-2020 In Colors with her card.  From left to right she used Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Call Me Clover, Blueberry Bushel and Pineapple Punch.  The whimsical In Color Designer Paper and her sweet little bows are just so perfect.  And her paper piecing takes her card over the top.

A Little Wild Child's Birthday Card Personalized

A Little Wild Stampin' Up! Card Idea

Hello Friends,

Kids Birthday Card are so fun to make.  My grandson, Levi, is celebrating his 4th birthday, so I thought that I would make him A Little Wild Birthday Card and personalize his card with his name.  The sweet lion with his white paws makes me smile.  I colored him with a combination of Light Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends.  I was able to personalize his Birthday Card with his name using the Make a Difference Stamp Set.

Levi and Lincoln

Can't believe this adorable little fellow is 4.  Here's and picture of Levi and  his big brother, Lincoln enjoying their tire swing.  They just moved so it will be pretty exciting to receive mail at his new house.

Personalized Kids Birthday Card

The whimsical Banner was stamped with the Birthday Banners and the Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies.  For some reason, orange seems to be a very popular colors with several of my grandsons, so I used the Grapefruit Grove striped paper from the 2018-2020 In color Designer Paper.  The blue is the new Blueberry Bushel ink.

Cue the Confetti Card for Any Occasion

Picture Perfect Party Stampin' Up!


This is a crazy busy time of year with graduations, birthdays, retirements, weddings, take your pick.  But there's one thing that they all have in common.  They are all a perfect excuse to cue the confetti and make a card.  I'll get back to how you can transform this card for any of these occasions later in the post.

Picture Perfect Party Stampin' Up!

But first let's talk about today's happy color combination.  Today's Cue the Confetti Card was stamped with the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set, I used varying shades of Coastal Cabana, Highland Heather, Pineapple Punch, Lemon Lime Twist and Melon Mambo inks.  Hint: To make the inks a shade lighter, simply "stamp off".  Which is a fancy way of saying stamp first on scrap paper and then onto your project.

Picture Perfect Party Stampin' Up!

I know that I told you that I would lay off my new favorite dies, Stitched Labels Framelits Dies for awhile, but you'll simply have to indulge me another day.  I can't stop myself.  These dies rock!

Do you see the fun designer paper peeking out from behind my stamped panel?  That's the new 2018-2020 In Color Designer Series Paper in Pineapple Punch.  

The Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set is available now, but you'll have to wait just a wee bit longer to get your hands on the Stitched Labels dies and the In Color Designer Paper.  The 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog begins June 1, 2018 at noon Mountain Time.

Now about adapting this card to the occasion at hand.  You can use stamps from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set to keep with the birthday theme or you can venture out to other occasions with the new Itty Bitty Greeting stamp set.  Hint:  The inside of your card is also a perfect excuse to clean up those extra paper scraps from your table and put them to use right away.  I cut my inside panels 3-3/4" x 5".  I can simply insert the one that I need next.
