Holiday Line up

I made these cards for my parents featuring the Holiday Line Up and Grateful Greetings stamp sets and the IN colors! Poppy Parade SU card stock, Crumb Cake & Blush Blossom Stamp & Write markers along with the Blender Pen really made coloring these characters easy.

1st Christmas in New Home Card

My Brother & Sister~in~law purchased their 1st home earlier this year and will be celebrating their first Christmas there. I made a card to go along with the "Our First Home 2010" Ornament I purchased for them. This card was CASED and I apologize as I cannot find the original source :/
The door was created using the Curly Label Punch and over 100 gum drops were stamped in the IN colors, Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, and a few retired brights then individually cut out to create the wreath. I figured it was a fun non-traditional wreath...Hubby thinks I was crazy for cutting them all out ;)

'old' scrapping supplies...

It may sound crazy...
After Thanksgiving I was able to add some more storage cubes to my craft studio. In doing so I discovered I had more card stock and supplies than any crafter could hope for ;) That being said, I had just signed up to share my love of paper crafting goodness with Stampin Up! What was a girl to do with all the 'OLD' supplies??? Unfortunately I have been stuck at home thanks to my body having its own idea of "fun" instead of going to work this week. That gave me lots of time to think of how to use up these supplies. I came across this fabulous site!
I can now make lots of cards that will get sent to our troops stationed all over the world so they can write in them and send them back home to their loved ones! Isn't this a great idea? I can't believe I have never heard of it before!!! It takes about 6-8 weeks for cards to get shipped over so I guess I will start making some Valentine's Day/Love themed cards. =)
Here are a few that I have done so far this week (not SU, but used SU inks and the snowman lineup and Make Merry stamps are from SU!) It's too late to send these, but I'm sure I'll find a home for them somewhere...

Stampin Up!

For those of you that know me, you know I'm a crazy~ crafting ~creative Chick -en wing ;) I guess CHEESY should also fit in there somewhere too! Hehehe! Anyway, due to what my hubby refers to as my "crafting supply shopping addiction" I have decided to become a Stampin Up! demonstrator and share what I love with the masses.
What are your thoughts on my blog title? ;) I thought it was perfectly cheesy and geographically appropriate to my current location in the lake-effect snowing, Sabres hockey playing, Bills football tailgating, Buffalo Wing originating, Queen City! I am here to help you INK Buffalo,NY up one rubber stamp, ink pad, and embellishment at a time.
For her shower Megan wanted a pink, purple, & white theme with wild flowers. I created the invitations and this simple card to go along with the theme. (Stampin Up! retired stamp set 'Blooming with Happiness' used)
 Favors were coordinating pink & white polka dot metal pots filled with soil and flower shaped seeded paper for guests to take home and plant.
For Dessert Megan had her favorite...'Dirt' (chocolate pudding, crushed Oreo's and a gummy worm) with coordinating flower cookies on top.
