Getting Inky with Get Inky! Stamps

If you are looking for this week's Friend With Flair, you will find it here!

Do you know that saying, "When God closes a door, He opens a window"?  Well, it often holds true.  Today, my beloved cropchocolate.com closes their online scrapbooking business.  It's been my hangout since 2009.  With the ending of that design team, I wanted to fill a very big void in my life, so I put out some feelers with connections in the crafting world.  On Saturday evening, April 26, I found out CC was closing.  By Monday evening, April 29th, I was on 2 new design teams, and they were BOTH for stamp companies!  Well, I LOVE to stamp so this was incredible news for me! My first post for one of the companies, Get Inky! Stamps, is today. You can find that post here.

I got my stamps in the mail on Tuesday, and immediately inked them up.  Here's the card I made using the flower theme of the current challenge that ends today.


I used two Get Inky! Stamps -- "Sew Sweet Cupcakes" and "Buzzing Bees". I used this file from the Silhouette Store to make the card.  Cardstock is from Echo Park.  I used some Stickles on the butterflies, some Pick Your Plum twine, and 3 Girl Jam crinkle ribbon in Dress White from the new Navy bundle (isn't it yummy?)

I'm so enjoying the Get Inky! Stamps -- they are very versatile.  You'll be seeing them pop up in projects from me quite frequently, I'm sure!

Be looking for more new adventures from me as I get started with design teams for Joy's Life stamp company and Silhouette Challenges. Woohoo!

I'll be entering this card in the following challenges:
