Mickey Mouse sweater card, Inkin With Dink This is the card that I made.  For this card I used the 2 1/4" circle punch and the 1 3/8" circle punch for the Mickey Mouse head.  The white polka dots are from the 3/4" circle punch.  I adhered everything to the Real Red cardstock and then ran it through the Big Shot using the Cable Knit embossing folder.

Love Today Planner Kit

Hello Stampers!  When the new Stampin' Up! catalog came out in June, I was so excited to see that there was a planner kit in it!  I bought it right away, and I have been playing with it for a few months!  


Today I made a video to show everything you would receive in your planner kit and how to put it together.  I have also decided to start doing a monthly class to decorate your monthly planner pages!  

Check out my video below and be watching for my upcoming planner videos!

Painted Harvest sympathy cards

Hello Stampers!  I was busy making cards last week for some upcoming classes, and I pulled out the Painted Harvest stamp set.  I had fun trying different colors combinations on the flowers!  

Here are three color combinations that I tried:

Painted Harvest, Inkin With Dink

The far left one is Wisteria Wonder for the background color and Perfect Plum for the highlights.  The middle card is Blushing Bride for the background color and Calypso Coral for the highlights.  The far right card is Pool Party for the background color and Marina Mist for the highlights.  The leafstamps are Pear Pizzazz and Wild Wasabi.

Which combination do you like the best???  Leave me a comment and let me know!  I'm thinking the purple card is the one I will use for class, unless it us unanimous for another combination!

Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget to leave me a comment and vote!  I'll draw a winner next week and the winner will win the card in the color combination of their choice!!
