Autumn Splendor card

Hello Stampers!  I had so much fun making some faux tile technique cards the other day! 

P1090540-1Aren't they pretty?  I started out with the large card because I just wanted to test out this technique.  Then I liked them so much that I decided to make a bunch of my customer thank you cards with the same technique!

I used the new Simply Scored Scoring Tool (122334) to score my Very Vanilla piece of cardstock every 1/2".  I then lightly stamped the En Francais stamp (109521) on the background and then the Autumn Splendor stamp set (116503) on top of that.

Next I covered the entire piece with my Versamark pad (102283) and embossed it all with clear embossing powder (109130).  That is it!  Well worth the extra steps for such a cool final look!

If you need to purchase some supplies, or have any questions, hop over to my Inkin With Dink online store today!

Happy Birthday Amie!

Hello Stampers!  Today is my daughter Amie's 15th birthday!  Yep, tomorrow she is going to take her test for her driving permit!  I'm still trying to get used to the fact that my oldest daughter can drive!

P1090664-1This is the card that I made for her.  I knew as soon as I saw this fun individual stamp in the new catalog that I had to have it!  Amie just loves elephants and this is one of the a la carte stamps for only $9.95!  What a deal!  It is called Elebration (121175).  I paper pieced the balloon and colored in the elephant with stampin' write markers.

P1090667-1Instead of a cake, Amie wanted cupcakes this year.  She found a recipe for Snickerdoodle cupcakes, which is her favorite kind of cookie, so she decided that is what she wanted to try.  Here they are, but they needed some color so I made these super cute cupcake toppers!  This cute little elephant is the baby elephant from the Baby Steps stamp set in last years catalog.  It was an a la carte stamp too!  I simply colored in the baby elephant with a marker and punched them out!  The toothpick is sandwiched in the middle of two scallop circles.  So easy!

Contact me if you have any questions or need some supplies to spice up your next birthday gathering!

Build-a-bear Coloring Tins

Hello Stampers!  I have a couple more craft fairs this fall, so I'm still making fun items to sell.

P1090658-1I decided to make these Build-a-bear coloring tins.  These are the tins that were on the clearance rack a few months ago.  They were the tins that held the big flower stickers a couple of years ago.

P1090659-1On the inside I included a small box of crayons and several stamped images for the kids to color.  I used the Beary Best Friends stamp set (118052) and the Family Accessories stamp set (113494). 

I used my Crop-a-Dile (108362) to punch holes in the tin to add a ribbon handle.

My remaining craft fairs are DeSmet Mother's Mass on December 1st and Oakville High School on December 3rd and 4th.  Hope to see you at one of them!
