SUINK Blog Hop & Birthday Bash

Happy Birthday SUINK! Today, Storage Units, Ink & More turns "1" and to celebrate, YOU are getting all the goodies. OH BOY, do they have goodies to give away; and all month long. I am talking some HUGE prizes; some prizes worth over $500!!! Check out THIS post for all the details! But first, let's HOP!!!

Welcome to the Storage Units, Ink & More July Sneak Peek BLOG HOP! If you have arrived here from Mary Jo's blog; GREAT! If not, you will want to head on over to Kristen's blog to start from the beginning.

This month, SUINK is releasing a new collection of stamps called S-U-Inkies. What are S-U-Inkies you ask? Well, they are single stamps. SUINK is debuting three single stamps this month and each stamp is part of a "collection". The following single stamps are being released this month.

~ Love Birds (Friendly Forest Collection)
~ Summer Fun (Fairy Tales Collection)
~ Thanks A Bot (Doodle Bots Collection)

By participating in the blog hop, you will have a chance to win a FABULOUS prize package from Storage Units, Ink & More (SUINK). The package includes:

- All three single stamps being released this month
- A pack of Core'dinations cardstock
- An inkpad and refill
- A pack of buttons
- A container of ribbon

All you have to do to be eligible to win the stamps is to hop along with us and leave a comment on each designer's blog along the way. You will hop through 8 designer's blogs that will be showcasing the new S-U-Inkies and then finish off at the SUINK blog to leave your final comment telling us which stamp or project was your favorite.

So, are you ready for the fun? Today I am peeking two of the three new single stamps. My first card uses the Thanks A Bot stamp. I just LOVE this little robot. I also used Weekend Sketch Challenge #79 for my layout. I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it in with Copic Markers. I used a white card base, Real Red cardstock, and blue cardstock from Core'dinations. The patterned paper is from the DCWV All About Boys Collection and was just PERFECT for this stamp.

For my second card, I used the Summer Fun stamp. I colored in the image with Copic Markers and used my Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll Pen to add some sparkle to her wings. The cardstock colors are Papertrey Aqua Mist, Pink Pirouette, and Regal Rose and I'm not exactly sure what company the patterned paper is...:( I pierced each of the scallops, added some prima flowers, and attached a tag stamped with the "Summer Fun" sentiment with a brad.

I hope you enjoy the rest of the July Sneak Peek Blog Hop. Don't forget to leave a comment on all of the design team member's blogs (and the SUINK Blog) to be eligible to win the grand prize. Now it's time to head on over to Cathleen's blog to see what sneak peeks she has in store for you.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL day!
