Pinking It Up!

Here's my latest card for the Hope You Can Cling To challenges at Splitcoaststampers!  My fabby fun friend, LuvLee - a.k.a. Lee Murphy's challenge is to use the word PINKALICIOUS.  Now take any of the letters from that word to create words that apply to your creation!  Gosh .. no pressure here, huh?!  LOL

Well, having just returned from an amazing stamping retreat over the weekend, my card shares true inspiration from the inky fun we had in retreat classes.  Take a look .. ...

The words from PINKALICIOUS that apply here are:
  • pink
  • silk (ribbon ...dyed pink with Melon Mambo re-inker)
  • skin .... 'cuz the skin on my fingers is totally pink now!!

I love this sentiment from the 'Bravo' stamp set!  It brings a message to cancer patients who have just endured a dreaded procedure, just made it through another round of chemo, just faced a needle again that scares them or hurts like crazy, just got out of bed to face another day ... ... the possibilities go on and on.   
A fabby shimmer is visible in person with this card, but it was pretty elusive to the camera today, even in natural light.  A teeny bit is showing in the sentiment closeup.   Shimmery White card stock is one of my all-time fave card stocks ... and the shimmer is unbeatable.  Much more understated than glitter, but so smooth and yummy for the eyes.  Try it out in your next order ... you can't help but adore the look and feel.  Plus, it is lovely with inking techniques and coloring atop ... the shimmer comes right through!

The inking technique is from my trusty SU Spritzer and Color Burst Powders.  Loved this spritz technique from retreat, and just "had" to use it for this challenge!  I'll include a complete list of Stampin' Up! products below with quick links for your shopping convenience.  

Thank you so very much for choosing me as your Stampin' Up! demonstrator!  And guess what!  If you order this stamp set between October 19 - 23 ... stamps are 15% off!

Glitzy Congratulations!

What do you do when someone reaches for a goal, right before your very eyes ... and reaches it?

Get out your 'Bravo' stamp set and make a card to celebrate the accomplishment!  
Not only is this stamp set full of "just the right thing to say" sentiments, but they also express your happy feelings in a big, bold way!  

Case in point:

I've kept it simple, but added some fun pizzazz with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.  Just a couple of Dimensionals to lift up the largest star, and my favorite new glue to adhere the rest of the sprinkling stars ... the brand new Fine Tip Glue Pen from the upcoming Holiday Catalog!  Soon, m'friends ... September 1 is almost here, and this delightful new super-fine point glue with a very special applicator can be yours!  (I already honestly adore this glue and it's no-clogging tiny little applicator tip!)

Local Notes:  My first 2015 Christmas Stamp-A-Stack begins this Saturday, with Replay Day coming up in early September.  Although it's too late to RSVP for Saturday, there's a bit of room for Tuesday, September 8 if weekdays work for you.  Please contact me if you'd like to jump in on this one, but please RSVP asap and I'll send the complete invitation to you via email.  Hope to see you soon!

Inky (((hugs))),
