Sea of Textures Swap Time!

On Stage is now over, but I hope you had fun following along with me on social media!  (If you aren't following me on Facebook or Instagram...head on over there and follow me!  Design With Ink)  It was such a blast!!!  I will have more to share when I return home!  Today, however, I wanted to share the swap card I made for a group swap that I was in.  I love organized swaps because it's usually all I have time for!  (Swapping is where you make a designated number of one card, and swap with others that did the same!  A great way to get a bunch of ideas!)

I love the Sea of Textures stamp set (with coordinating framelits!) and that's the stamp set I ended up reaching for with my swap!

ColorsWhisper White, Soft Sea Foam, Pool Party, Flirty Flamingo
Cardstock/Papers Whisper White, Soft Sea Foam, Pool Party, Shimmery White
Stamps: Sea of Textures
Tools: Big Shot, Under the Sea Framelits, Seaside Embossing Folder
Accessories: Linen Thread, Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins

Do you like that octopus as much as I?!  And funny thing is...I think they are SUPER ugly in real life.  Gag.  Me.  But on much fun and oh so cute!  I love a good ocean theme.  😁

Look how fun to see the whole pile of them.  Am I the only one out there that LOVES seeing all this hard work in a photo?!

So much fun!!!  And let's not forget to show you some details...

Little peekaboo of the Seaside embossed Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  💕

This octopus is so much fun to stamp.  I inked him up in Flirty Flamingo first, and then sponged a little bit of Calypso Coral ink over that.  It is pretty subtle, but I like the variation of colors on him.

Can't get enough of these sequins!  They rock my world!  😀

I so hope you enjoy!  Please let me know if you have any questions!!!  Thanks so much for visiting!

30th Year On Stage Begins...with gifts!!!

If you aren't following me on Facebook or Instagram yet, YOU NEED TO!  I am sharing highlights from Stampin' Up!'s 30th year On Stage (convention) celebration!!!  Just search for Design With Ink and follow along!!!  We are having a blast!!!

Today I wanted to share one of the gifts I made for this event!  I made a whole lot of these because I made them for a fun gift swap I was in and also made some other so pass out to friends.  I am SOOOOO thankful for all the friendships I have made through Stampin' Up and so I love to have little goodies to pass out. Want to see?!?!  First photo is from the gift swap I was in. I'm kind of in love with these.  😍

ColorsWhisper White, Night of Navy, Melon Mambo, Powder Pink, Shaded Spruce, Soft Sea Foam
Cardstock/Papers Whisper White, Night of Navy, Soft Sea Foam, Shaded Spruce, Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Abstract Impressions
Tools: Big Shot, Stitched Shapes, Sprig Punch, Petal Burst Embossing Folder
Accessories: Linen Thread, Rhinestone Basic Jewels

How cute is this?!  I basically copied myself for this.  I posted THESE awhile ago, and thought it would be perfect for this purpose!  But this time I used the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper pack.  Totally swooning over this!

 I just love all the patterns and colors!  Look at some of them before I filled them...

Photo overload because I can't get enough.  Haha.  Want to see more?!  😀

This sprig punch is pretty much my favorite.  Love the little accent it adds behind things.  Such a fun and easy element.  😍😍😍  If you don't have this professional opinion is that you need it.  😁

Then look how cute it is with either candy or a fun gift in it...

I just love this so much, in case you couldn't tell.  😉  Please let me know if you have any questions!

It's A Joy...Treat Box:

Have you noticed the Clear Treat Boxes in the catalog yet?!  If really need to look.  😁  They are so cute and I love making fun little treat boxes with this.  This project is super quick and easy!  Although I do have a sad note to tell you.  The "joy" word on this project is from the Festive Farmhouse Elements that are now sold out.  I'm so sorry!  However...I am sharing this project still because:

1.  That Buffalo Check background stamp is 😍😍😍.  
2.  You can easily just replace the wood word with a stamped greeting die-cut word from our fun Big Shot dies!  🙌

So...on to the project!!!!!  

Colors:  Cherry Cobbler, Gray Granite
Cardstock/Papers:  Cherry Cobbler, Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Buffalo Check
Tools: Big Shot, Stitched Shapes Framelits
Accessories:  5/8" Striped Burlap Trim, Festive Farmhouse Elements

What do you think?!  See why I still had to show it!  SOOOO simple and easy, yet I don't know anyone that wouldn't love receiving this!!  

And here it is when the box is empty.  (Just a note...those are chocolate covered almonds in there above.  😋) 

I hope you enjoy this project!  Thanks so much for visiting!  What are your holiday creating plans?!  I would love to hear!  Also let me know if you have any questions!
