Sparkly Season

24 Nov


Sparkly Seasons is a fantastic stamp set, and so versatile.


Sparkly Seasons Photopolymer Set #139825

I love the holiday sets you can use long after the holidays.  I think this would be a special birthday card for a very special young lady.  It’s hard to see, but I’ve use Iridescent Ice embossing powder on the snow in the snow globe and silver embossing powder on the base to add some extra sparkle.  Be sure to check out the other designer’s cards with set over on SSInkspirations.

2015 SSINK Blog Hop Badge


Welcome to my little part of the web.  Thanks for “hopping” in.   As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left the start of The Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Blog Hop. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn’t work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.  Today I’m showing one of my favorite Halloween creations this year.  It’s a 12 X 12 page for a framed display.  It took a little time to create, but was lots of fun!  Each of the large squares were 4-1/4″ X 4-1/4″ in size.  Below is a closer look at each one.


Tip with this one:  be sure to sponge each of the Old Olive punched pieces for the best appearance.  By the way, Frankie’s bolts were made using the stacking toy framelit from Baby’s First Framelits.



Tip:  Each of the Very Vanilla strips were 1″ and sponged with soft suede.


And for the center…


Be sure to continue on with the Blog Hop and see what the others have created.

Watercolor with Acrylic Blocks

6 Oct

Today I’m sharing a great technique for a little wow that’s quick!  To create the background, all I did was ink the acrylic block witht the Stampin’ Write markers and then spritz with water.  I didn’t want a complete watery background…does that make sense?  So, I only spritzed twice.
