Sale-A-Bration Ice Cream Parlor card

Hello Stampers!  I wanted to show you a card that I made with the free items in the Ice Cream Parlor designer series paper and quick accents pack (122242).

P1070765 Isn't it a fun card?  I totally CASE'd this card, but I loved the way it used not only the designer series paper from the one pack, but also the ribbon and buttons from the Ice Cream Parlor ribbon & buttons pack (123529).

This card is also a card that we made in this month's card class.  We used the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine (113439) and the Flower Folds die (115970).  We also used the wonderfully fun Designer Big Buttons (122302) from the Occasions mini catalog.  The stamp set we used was A Word For You (117032).

Today is the last day of Sale-A-Bration!  So hurry on over to my Inkin With Dink website and get your free Ice Cream Parlor goodies before they're gone!

It's A Boy!

Hello Stampers!  No, I'm not having another baby!  I have a mom from my preschool class this year that is just about to pop!  She is due any day now and she knows it's a boy.  The teacher that I work with bought this really cute boy onsie that has chicks on it, so I just thought I needed to make a card to match!  Here's what I came up with:

P1070763 Cute huh?  I used the A Good Egg stamp set (114974).  I know that it is an Easter set, but this just shows you that these stamp sets are versital!  I used the 1 3/8" Circle punch (119860) for the neck and legs.  I just cut out pieces for the sides.

I also decided to make her some thank you cards.  New moms always need thank you cards!

P1070764 For these, I used the retired stamp set, I'm Here.  I have always loved this stamp set!  It just makes the cutest cards!

For the colors on these cards, I used Bashful Blue and Pacific Point.  Ready to purchase your own supplies for these super cute cards?  Hop on over to my Inkin With Dink website and click on the SHOP NOW in the top right.

St. Patrick's Day pin

Hello Stampers!  Happy St. Patrick's Day!  Are you all wearing your green today?  If you don't have any green clothes to wear, I have the solution for you!

P1070604 Isn't this a fun pin?  I received this as a swap at the Branson regional last month!  I think it is so cute!  The stamp set that was used to make this is the Lucky Shamrock stamp (121939) that is an a la carte stamp in the back of the Occasions mini catalog!  So this stamp is only $6.95!

It has just been punched out with the 1 3/8" Circle punch (119860) and layered on the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle punch (119854).  The White gel pen (105021) was then used to make little dots in the scallops!  How easy is that???

Remember to order your Lucky Shamrock stamp so that you have your green to wear for next year!  But remember that this stamp is only available until April 30th when the Occasions mini goes away!  So, hop on over to my Inkin With Dink website today and order yours!

Punch Bunch Kit Kat cover

Hello Stampers!  Look at this fun little image I found on the outside of my SU! box that I received!

 P1070601

I did a fun make n' take at a scrapbook event I was at last week and I wanted to share it with you! 

P1070602 
P1070603 
This is one of the fun snack sized Kit Kat bars covered in designer series paper.  This paper is the pack you can get as a Level 1 hostess gift, In Color (121028)!  We cut the designer series paper 4 1/2" X 3 1/2" and wrapped it around the candy bar.  We crimped the ends with the crimper tool (101618).

We then stamped the owl from the Sale-A-Bration set, Punch Bunch (121847).  We punched the the owl out with the Two-step Owl punch (118074) and then the vest out of coordinating designer series paper so that he would stand out a little more!

The tag is the To & From Tag (117130) in the a la carte section of the catalog!  It is only $6.95 for this stamp!  We punched it out with the Large Tag punch (119876) and then punched out coordinating cardstock with the Extra-large Tag punch (119866).

These were then adhered to the candy bar and it makes a super cute gift!

Don't miss out on this opportunity to get the Punch Bunch stamp set for free!  Hop on over to my Inkin With Dink website and place your $50 order today to get this stamp set for free!!!

Thoughts & prayers card

Hello Stampers!  I think the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set (113252) makes beautiful sympathy and thinking of you cards!

I also used the new Framed Tulips Embossing Folder (121809) from the Occasions mini catalog, that I ran through the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine (113439).  After I cut out the butterfly image, I adhered him to the card and embellished him with a Basic Pearl (119247).

Springtime Vintage card

Hello Stampers!  Time for another one of the swaps that I received in my upline/downline/sideline swap.

Blog 1457 This pretty card was made by Peggy!  Great job Peggy!  I love this card!  The vintage feel is perfect!

Peggy made these paper flowers using the Springtime VIntage designer series paper (121782) from the Occasions mini catalog.  These  flowers are super easy to make using the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle punch (119854).  This flower was made with three distressed scallop circles.

I love the way she has a small strip of cardstock that was punched using the Scallop Trim Border punch (118402) and then distressed, just barely showing on the left side of the brown cardstock.
