Hello Feathers with PPA215

Good morning and thanks for stopping by Ink a Doodle Creations.  Today I am sharing my project card for the color challenge over at Pals Paper Art.  Just loved these colors together and I think it worked perfectly for the new Four Feathers stamp set.  Yep, I did it again, I am showing a sneak peek from the new Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.

This feather set is just so darn cute.  And what's even better, is that you can purchase the matching framelit set that will cut them out too!  My card base is basic black and layers of dsp from the Confetti Celebration pack.  I also layered in a solid strip of pear pizzazz and an embossed white piece at the very top using the tiny triangles folder.  I stamped one feather in strawberry slush and the other in pear pizzazz.  This feather was cut out with the framelit and attached with a couple foam dots.  I also used the Little Letters framelit set to cut out the letters to spell "HELLO".  Finishing off the card, I placed three black candy dots at the top.
Thanks again for stopping by, leave some "love" and check back in tomorrow to see what challenge I'll be playing along with.

A Swapping Good Time

Good morning, its time for another SSINKspiration Blog Hop!  Today we are sharing our swap cards created just for the design teams members in our Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration group.  Going to a Stampin' Up! Convention is always fun, but when you get to meet with the ladies you chat with almost everyday over Facebook, it makes it so much more exciting!! 
As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number #2 on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop -Donna S. of Organized Chaos  . If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.
Since I was using the stamp set, "Flower Patch" to create my projects for our groups display board, I thought I would keep the mojo going and crank out one more card design using this set.  I started with a base color of tangelo twist and cut and embossed a layer with whisper white.  Using my envelope punch board, I punched out a tab on each side at the top for my ribbon to wrap around.  The flowers are colors of island indigo, tangelo twist and sahara sand.

On the inside, I stamped one large flower with three little leaves to the side.

Hello Fall August Card Sketch Challenge #SSINKCS12

Good Monday morning!  Its time for another fabulous card sketch challenge over at
Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration.  I just know you are going to have such fun creating with this one and I can't wait for you to see all the other creations from our design team members, but first here is our sketch.  When playing along, don't forget to link up and use #SSINKCS12 in your post title.

and here is my take on the sketch...

Now wait a minute, hold on, I know what your thinking....what stamp set is that?  Am I right?  Well.....this just happens to be a cute fall set, "For All Things", from the new Holiday Mini.  I don't normally create with unreleased new toys yet, but I just couldn't resist using it with this sketch.
The film roll from the On Film Framelit set was the best way to showcase each colored leaf too.  I also used a torn piece of new DSP from the new mini too, "Color Me Autumn".  Both stamp set and DSP paired nicely with the richness of the new in color, blackberry bliss.  I also used Cajun craze and crushed curry.  Don't you just love the finishing touch with the square burlap and the little golden
metal button?!
On the inside, I stamped two more layered leaves and used one of the sentiments that comes with this set.
Supplies Used

Happy Birthday Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration!!!

Good morning, its Friday, Friday, Friday!!!  Today is such an exciting day for so many reasons!  I don't even know where to begin!  First of all today over at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration, we are celebrating our blogs 1st Birthday/Anniversary!!  We all have been doing our best to inspire you with projects 5 days a week.  Did you know we also do three monthly challenges, that you, our followers can participate in?!  Today our projects will contain a mixture of projects to celebrate this special occasion.  But before I show you my projects for today, I have two more exciting announcements......SSINKspiration is now officially on Pinterest and Facebook!

To make this post even a little more special for our Birthday post, I went back and pulled our very first card sketch challenge.
and here is my take on the sketch.
After receiving the "Amazing Birthday" stamp set at Convention last month, I thought it fitting to use it for todays projects.  I first stamped the image in rich razzleberry and stamped two of the highlighted phrased in old olive and pumpkin pie and mounted them on top with foam dots.  The cute little banners at the bottom are from the sweet taffy dsp pack.  I also used my favorite embossing folder right now, the large polka dots for my whisper white layer. 

On the inside, I embossed a small corner portion and layed down a 1/2" strip of melon mambo with two punched out banners.  Now I couldn't just stop here with just a card.  What's a birthday celebration without a candy treat?!  So I broke out my super cute French fry container die for my Big Shot (speaking of Big Shot, did I tell you we have an awesome special going on right now?  See the bottom of post for all the details!)
I cut out one in rich razzleberry to match my card base and embossed it with the same large polka dotted folder.  I stamped sentiments from the same stamp set and stapled it to the box.  The inside is filled the Hershey hugs!!

Kinda Eclectic

Good morning and thanks for stopping by my blog.  Today I am over at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration and we are sharing projects made using the Stampin' Up! Kinda Eclectic stamp set.  I have been waiting patiently to get my hands on this set too.  About a month or so before Convention, Stampin' Up! release the list of stamp sets we would be getting in our bag for our make and takes.  I was so excited that this was one of those sets, but bummed at the same time that I had to wait until July 16th to get my hands on it.  But it was well worth the wait!  This is actually the first card that I have made with it.

I used blackberry bliss as my base and then a layer of very vanilla which I stamped on.  I cut a 2-3/4"x4" vanilla layer and cut the center our with a circle framelit and embossed it with the large polka dotted folder.  I then glued it over top the stamping and centered the sun in the middle of the cut out.  I stamped my sentiment on a cut out banner and added the beautiful butterfly to the side.   

No card is complete, without a little stamping on the inside too.
