Stylin’ Stampin Inkspiration Color Challenge


Color Challenge

Happy Monday to start off your week with a fun color challenge from the SSSINKspiration Design Team

 Join us and participate in the color challenge!

I love how my card turned out. I have had this stamp set for a long time. I thought that cute piggy would be so cute in the Flirty Flamingo! Being from Iowa and being raised on a farm we had pigs. Not cute like the one in my card though. LOL!

Product List to shop from my online store for these products

ICS Blog Hop High Tide

Inspire, Create, share Blog Hop

It’s time for our  Inspire, Create and Share Blog Hop! This month our theme is It’s A Guy Thing.

I used the stamp set High Tide. I love lighthouses! I like to use several images in the set to create a scene like I did for my design. I wanted to add my own background tone on tone stamping with the water image. I really like how it turned out!

At the very end of my post are the supplies listed that I used in my card,

light house card

Now to continue to hop to see more inspiration head on over to my friends Cheryl’s blog.

Coffee Break Blog Hop

I hope you are enjoying our Coffee Break Blog Hop along with a cup of coffee or tea. I personally like a lot of creamer with my coffee! I’m hopping with fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from all over the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and Canada. You may have arrived from Rhonda’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

Today’s hop features the Coffee Break designer series paper (dsp) with coordinating Coffee Cafe stamp set and Coffee Cup framelits. With 12 patterns to select from on 6 double sided sheets, our blog hop projects may or may not include coffee themes. The opposite sides of the dsp usually feature a complimentary pattern like strips, circles or asymmetrical prints that may be used instead of the coffee patterns. 

I decided my color combo Garden Green, Crumb Cake to coordinate with the colors in the designer series paper layers I choose. 

If you struggle with what color to use when you sit down to design a project the tip I have is to use the colors based on the designer series paper your using. This stamp set, framelets and designer series paper are retiring soon! Don’t miss ordering them if you love the projects you see during the blog hop!

Please add a comment and let me know what you liked about my design.

My inspiration came from  a fellow demonstrator  Dawn Griffith. Look for her card layout series.

My 16th Stampin Up! Stamp a versary

Wow! Every year this comes around I think I am more passionate each time! Today marks my 16th year of my Stampin’ Up! business! I still remember telling my friend that i was just signing up for the discount. There was no plan for me to show the products or ever start a business. I decided I would try a Open House within my first 3 months invite a few friends and see what happens. From that point on it just took off and I wouldn’t  have changed anything.  When I look back especially last year and see how my business has grown its unreal at times to realize that I never thought this would be anything other than getting discount on the products that I love. This summer I get to take my husband to Alaska for my 2nd Incentive Trip that I earned! It still feels great to be inspiring others as they find their creative side w stamp sets, ink pads and card stock at each event I hold! This year my goal is to continue inspiring others and earn my way to the Greek Isles!

Incentive Trip 2019 to Greek Isles

Thanks for stopping by today on my very special day celebrating my business!
