Creative Inking Blog Hop - Spring is in the Air

Creative inking logoWelcome to the Creative Inking Blog Hop, I am so excited to be part of this hop and I know you will enjoy all the projects this month.  I chose to use a few of the products on the Retirement List this year. 
View the retirement Lists - Annual Catalog -  Click Here
Occasions Catalog - Click Here
I used the Sunshine Sayings stamp set and the coordinating Sunshine Wishes Dies.  I also incorporated a fun technique called Shimmer Paint Resist using the Glossy White Cardstock which is also on the Retirement List. Video for Shimmer Paint Resist on my blog www.barbstamps.com #stampinupI used the brushstroke image for the background on my Lemon Lime Twist card base.  I also used Berry Burst and Powder Pink on the card.  All three of these colors are retiring so if you need cardstock or ink refills, get them soon as things always sell out!
Video for Shimmer Paint Resist on my blog www.barbstamps.com #stampinup
Video for Shimmer Paint Resist on my blog www.barbstamps.com #stampinupI ran the sentiment through the Big Shot with the sunshine die and snipped it apart to get the work "hi".  I used our Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets on the back of the cardstock before I ran it through so both words would have adhesive on them and I wouldn't have to fuss with liquid glue.
Video for Shimmer Paint Resist on my blog www.barbstamps.com #stampinupI added the large flower and some of the sentiments in the set to the inside of the card.  I purposely didn't try to get them even or straight as I didn't want to fuss with that either!!

It's Anniversary Week and I have gifts and prizes!! Card with the Piece of Cake Bundle


16 anniversary
I signed up as a demonstrator on April 9, 2003 so tomorrow is my 16 year Stampin' Up! Anniversary!!  I cannot believe that I have been doing what I love for 16 years, it seems like yesterday that I was having the conversation with my husband about joining.  The cost of the Starter Kit was a whopping $300 and you got to choose some ink colors but that was about it.  Nothing like it is today where you can customize the whole thing!!  I joined to be a discount purchaser never dreaming that 16 years later, I would have earned the last 12 Incentive Trips and am on my way to earning number 13!!  I have wonderful gals on my team, amazing customers and have made friends all over the world!  It was absolutely the best decision I have ever made.  Thank you to all of my customers and team members who have supported me over this 16 year journey!!
Tomorrow is not only my anniversary but it is the day I leave for the Stampin' Up! On Stage event in Minneapolis to see some of my very best stamping friends, I am so excited!!

Onto today's card, I created this last week during a recent Facebook Live FREE stamping class and you can see me make it in the video below.  It uses the Piece of Cake Bundle and I love it! Piece of cake navyI used a combination of the cakes to create mine, the "happy" and "birthday" pieces were inked in black and stamped on Coastal Cabana and Granny Apple Green and then cropped with the Cake Builder Punch which is included in the bundle.
Piece of cake navyI layered them onto another cake stamped in black on white that was colored with the Light Night of Navy, Light Granny Apple Green and the Light Bermuda Bay Stampin' Write Markers.  I also colored my Basic Pearls with those same Stampin' Blends.
Piece of cake navyI added some sentiments to the inside with the  Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set and one of the words from the Well Written Thinlits. My polka dots are from the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch and the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack.
