Carried Away dsp and a cool tin!

Hello Stampers!  Today I wanted to showcase a couple of the Sale-a-bration items.  The first is the gorgeous Carried Away designer series paper!  This is a package of 12 sheets of 12 X 12 designer series paper!  It is gorgeous paper and is great for scrapbooking and card making.  This was the paper we used at my Carried Away card class last month!

And I used this designer series paper to decorate my free tin!

Bella's Valentine

Hello Stampers!  Today I decided to make a Valentine's Day card.  I love the Bella & Friends stamp set, so it was the one I pulled out!  Do you want to see what I came up with?  Here it is!

Bella & Friends stamp set, Valentine's card, Inkin With Dink

I used the new watercolor pencils to color the dog and bird.  I colored over the top with a blender pen so that it smoothed out the color.  Love this!  I used the Sweetheart punch and punched out of the Sending Love designer series paper stack for the balloon.  The white background has been embossed with the new Falling Petals textured impressions embossing folder.  

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my card!  Come back tomorrow and I hope to have a video to show you!

Happy Birthday to You!

Hello Stampers!  Some of you may know that I started an I'm Bringing Birthdays Back campaign last year.  Actually one of the Stampin' Up! employees started this, but I thought it was a great idea and I jumped on board, to a much smaller extent!  I sent handmade birthday cards to friends and customers that I had birthdays for.  I really loved doing it and have decided that I'm going to do it to a much bigger extent this year!  

However, I need your help!  All you have to do is let me know when your birthday is!  That's right!  I want to send you a birthday card this year!  Even if you think I already know when your birthday is, tell me again and  I will double check that you are on my list and that I have the right date!  You can either comment on this post or e-mail me at dina@inkinwithdink.com

IMG_8389-001

I'm excited about this and I hope you jump on board with me!  I'm going to need a lot of birthday cards, and so will you, so I'm going to start holding monthly birthday stamp-a-stacks!  In this class we will be making 8 cards, two each of four designs.  The cost of the class is $15 or free with a $25 purchase.  Our first class will be:

Tuesday, January 24th  6:00 p.m.  at Hobby Lobby - Arnold

And here are the cards that we will be making:

Please RSVP so that I will have enough supplies cut!  Hope to see you then and that you all jump on board with me!

January card & technique class

Hello Stampers!  I'm so excited that the new Occasions catalog is here!  My wish list is a mile long!  And I'm so lucky that this is Sale-a-Bration so that I can earn FREE product while I'm purchasing everything on my wish list!

I used new products on the cards in this month's Card & Technique class.  Here are the cards that we will be making this month:

January card & technique class, Inkin With DInk Let's look at each one of them individually and what I used on each of them.

Delicate Details stamp set, Inkin With DInk, January card class This card uses the Delicate Details stamp set which you can get for FREE during Sale-a-Bration when you make a $50 purchase!  The Happy Birthday is the Styllized Birthday stamp in the annual catalog.  

Oh So Succulent stamp set, January card class, Inkin With Dink On this card we will use the Oh So Succulent stamp set.  I love this flower from the set!  It is a two step stamp set.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  The embossed background is using the Petal Burst embossing folder.

Pretty Kitty stamp set, Inkin With Dink, January card class On this card we will be using the Pretty Kitty stamp set.  In this picture the image isn't colored, but we will be using the Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pens to color in the image!  I'm so excited that the watercolor pencils came back!  And now they are in our Stampin' Up! colors!

Sealed With Love stamp set, Inkin With Dink, January card class Finally we will be doing a Valentine's Day card!  This card uses the Sealed with Love stamp set and the coordinating Love Notes Framelits.  We will also be using the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack. My favorite part of this card is the heart border that is cut from the card!

I would love to have you join us for one of my remaining classes this month!

Penguin sliders!

Hello Stampers!  Did the title of this post draw your interest?  I considered changing it because my first thought was a slider like a little sandwich and I didn't want you to think I was cooking and eating penguins!!!  But I kept the title because then it made me laugh!  After that lead in, here is the card:

Snow Place slider penguin card, Inkin With DInk This super cute card was displayed at a stamping event I recently attended.  I thought it was just adorable using the Snow Place stamp set and the Sliding Star Framelits.  The Snow Place stamp set even has coordinating framelits called the Snow Friends Framelits.  

I'm off on a scrapbooking weekend this weekend so there won't be any card creating for a few days!  Just lots of pages!!!
