Custom Tee birthday

Hello Stampers!  This morning I designed the final card for this month's Birthday Stamp-a-stack class!  Want to see it?

IMG_8407-002

The minute I first saw the Custom Tee stamp set at OnStage, I fell in love and knew I had to have it!  And of couse I had to have the Tie Dyed set to go with it!  It is so easy to use!

If you would like to make a couple of these cards then you definitely need to attend my Birthday stamp-a-stack class this month!  We will be making 8 cards, two each of 4 designs.  The cost of the class is $15 and includes everything needed except for adhesive.  Please RSVP!

Tuesday, February 21st  6:00 p.m.  (Hobby Lobby - Arnold)

Hope to see you there!

I sent out my monthly newsletter today that shows the other cards we will be making in that class.  If you don't already, be sure to subscribe to my newsletter!  Just go to the top of my right sidebar and fill out the form!

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!

Top Note die Flashback

Hello Stampers!  Today I decided to do a Flashback Friday post!  I think it is funny to look back at the cards that we used to make several years ago!  This card was from a post back in January of 2009!  My how things have changed over the years!  Click on the card to go to the actual post!

I did a Flashback Friday post on my team Facebook page today too!  I showed one of the cards that I made during my first year as a demonstrator in 2004!  How fun!

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!

Thursday, January 19th  6:00 p.m.  Hobby Lobby - Arnold

Friday, January 20th  6:30 p.m.  First Baptist Church - Arnold

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!!!

Make n' takes

Hello Stampers!  Alright!  It is time to get serious with this blog thing again!  I have been jumping around and only posting sporadically, so now things need to change!  However, I need your help!  I'm going to do my best to post on weekdays, but if I miss a day or two, you need to nudge me and remind me that I'm not being consistent!  Can you do that for me?  Great!  

Thailand1
I hope that you all have seen by now that I did meet my goal for this Stampin' Up! year!  Thanks to all of my loyal customers and team members, I earned the Thailand trip!  I'm so excited and it is going to be a really long 10 months waiting for our adventure!  My husband does not want to go with me, you know 6' 5" and an airplane for 20 hours is not a great combination!!!  So I am taking my youngest daughter Amie with me!  She is super excited!  Thank you to everyone who helped me make my goal possible!

Over the weekend I attended a fun stamping event put on by another demonstrator in my area.  We had demonstrations, make n' takes, and of course swapping!  I will share it all with you over the next few days!  Today I will show you the make n' takes that we made!  Super cute projects!

IMG_7822

IMG_7823 This is a super cute candy holder.  So easy to make too!  I will be working on a video on making these!  Be watching!!!

IMG_7824  Isn't this a pretty card?  The Petals & Paisley suite in the Holiday is great!  Makes great fall or any occasion cards!  

IMG_7825 I just love this Detailed Santa thinlit!  So easy to use and a real WOW!  We will be making a card very simiar to this in my next Christmas card class on Thursday, October 6, at both 10:00 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.!

IMG_7826 This card uses the Frosted Medallions stamp set from the Holiday catalog.  We embossed the snowflake with white embossing powder.  Make it pop!

Thanks for stopping by!  I will be sending out my newsletter later this week with the information for my upcoming Christmas card classes.  Just e-mail me at dina@inkinwithdink.com if you would like to get on my subscriber list!
