Surprise mail!

Hello Stampers!  I'm postponing Make a Card/Mail a Card Monday for a day!  My daughter is in town, she is off for the holiday weekend, and we are having fun!  So I'll be back tomorrow with my video! 

Do you like to get happy mail as much as I do?  I get so excited when there is something in my mailbox that isn't a bill or junk mail!  A few weeks ago I got a surprise envelope in the mail and this is what was in it!

IMG_0290 The card is beautiful and the post it notes all have inspiring quotes on them!  So fun!  Thanks Ronda!

Make a card/Mail a card Monday

Hello Stampers!  I am making Monday's, Make a card/ Mail a card Monday's!  It seems like I am always trying to mail more cards out!  After all, I literally make hundreds of cards a year, and I'm probably one of the worst at getting them sent out!  I started a campaign two years ago to send out birthday cards to all of my customers.  This helped get me started and I have been making Monday my Mail a Card Monday for quite awhile now.

Now I'm going to go one step further and make Mondays' Make a Card/Mail a Card Mondays and I will be making a card, filming it, and sending it out!  So you will have to start watching for my weekly Make a Card videos!

Today I decided to make a card for my youngest daughter.  She recently spent a week in Disney World.  We are both huge Disney fans!  She got back in town Saturday, only to leave yesterday to head back to college.  I wanted to make and send her a card to let her know that I miss her already!!!  Here is what i came up with:

Minnie Mouse, Inkin With Dink

Here is the video showing you how to make it:


Enjoy!  Then hop over to my Inkin with Dink Stampers Facebook page and share with us a card that you are making and sending out!!!

Party Panda's Incentive card

Hello Stampers!  Today I have a fun card and a video to show you!  I am starting a new program.  Every month I will design a card which will be my ordering incentive for the month.  If you place an online order during that month, you will receive a kit of the consumables to make that card.  The images will NOT be stamped, since I am not allowed to do that per Stampin' Up! rules.  You can copy my card exactly or use your own stamp sets to create your own card!  I will include embossing though.

Here is the card that I made and an alternative card using the same consumables:

Party Pandas, Bella & Friends, Inkin With Dink

 And here is my video as I show you how to make the card on the left!  Enjoy!

Let me know if you have any questions and be sure to use hostess code DYCDKHXD when you place an order in my online store during January 2018!
