SSINKspiration: Tips & Tricks

Happy Game 7 of the World Series everyone!!  If you can't tell from the card below, I'm a Royals fan...I have been my whole life and it's a little CRAZY around Kansas City these days!  I'm not sure anyone is getting anything done today!  But I did make a cute card to celebrate!



And it's Tips & Tricks day over at SSINKspiration today.

My first tip is the measurements of a card base that I LOVE to use...

Those are a few leaves made out of vellum and then dry embossed them with embossing folders.

Can You Case It? #41: Clean & Quick Card

It's time for a fun new challenge at Can You Case It?!  

Check it out...



I love Clean & Quick cards!  They are so much fun and SO EASY to create!  

Here is my card...


The DSP that I used comes from the Maritime DSP Pack.  I love the Red and White Grid design!

I used two stamp sets on this card.  I love the circles from the Draw The Line Photopolymer Stamp Set.  I stamped those in Mossy Meadow ink on Whisper White Cardstock.  The second Stamp Set I used is the Holiday Invitation Photopolymer Stamp Set.  I stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink to match the DSP on this card.  The sentiments in this set are so much fun!



Also linking up with the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge this week!  Sketch #96!


This card was so quick to create!  I hope that you will join in with us at Can You Case It? this week!  Can't wait to see what you create!

Stamp Set Focus: Gorgeous Grunge

There are so many different things that you can create with just one stamp set!  The thing I love most about Stampin' Up! is that they sell most of their stamps in sets!  So you have multiple images that coordinate and you can create SO MANY different cards with just one set!

Today over at SSINKspiration we are working with the stamp set, Gorgeous Grunge...



And here is my card...


This card is a CASE of a card that I did earlier this week.  You can see it here.  I changed the theme from Halloween to Christmas and I think I love it even more!  What do you think?

I love the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set!  When it was introduced, I knew it would be one of my favorites and it is!  It adds so much character to the background of cards and scrapbook pages.


Thanks for stopping by today to see my card.  Don't forget to stop by the SSINKspiration main blog to see what the other Design Team Members have created for you today!

Inspiration Challenge

Today over at SSINKspiration we are having an Inspiration Challenge.  We picked this picture to be inspired by...



And here is the card that I came up with...


I loved the color combination of Gray, Black, White, Blue and Yellow.  So I used these Stampin' Up! colors on my card: Whisper White, Basic Black, Smokey Slate, Hello Honey and Coastal Cabana.

I also knew that I wanted to add in a flower because I love the random flowers around the room in the picture!



I am also linking up with the sketch from Retro Sketches...Sketch #136!  I love it!



I hope that this picture inspires you to create something as well!  Don't forget to head on over to the SSINKspiration main blog to see what the other Design Team Members created for you today!  You won't want to miss these cute projects!
