Miss Ink Stamps – Wishing You a Cool Yule

Hello again! I hope your week is going fantastic! I’m having a blast doing all things Christmas – decorating, crafting, baking – all of it! And today I have an adorable Miss Ink Stamps Christmas card featuring the newly release Have an Ice Day penguins! They are too cute and I just love coloring them!

I started by stamping images from Have an Ice Day and colored them all with my copic markers. Then I used the scan-n-cut to cut them out and used liquid glue to adhere all the bits and pieces to my sweet penguins.

Next, I blended distress oxide ink in rustic wilderness and mowed lawn on an A2 panel and spritzed it with water. I blotted it dry and ran it through my die cutter with the Pretty Pink Posh Storybook 2 die. I love these dies and how they give you something to ground your images. They also make fun shaker cards if you feel like doing that.

I adhered the main part of the inked panel to my white card base with liquid glue and then popped the windows back in place with foam squares for a little dimension and interest.

Then I added all of my images and sentiment strip with foam squares as well. For finishing touches I added a scattering of PPP Shamrock pearls across the design. Last I couldn’t resist a little unicorn Stickles and glossy accents on the penguins and their accessories.

Isn’t this little penguin family just the sweetest!?! I can’t get over how cute the hat is with the reindeer antlers coming out of it. It makes me giggle every time.

Miss Ink Stamps – Release Day | Warm Wishes Tag

Welcome everyone!!! Miss Ink Stamps is having an adorable winter release today and I’m sharing a fun tag featuring one of the new stamp sets.

When I saw this image I thought it would fit perfect on a tag so I checked and, sure enough, it’s perfect! I cut the inside panel of the Avery Elle Easy Layer Tag dies and stamped my image and sentiment on it. Then I used copic markers to color the scene.

I inked up the edges of the panel with chipped sapphire distress oxide ink and lined the back with foam tape. I cut the main part of the tag from white cardstock and patterned paper. Then I adhered everything and threaded ribbon through the hole, tying it with some twine.

For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to things like ornaments and snowman eyes. Then I added unicorn Stickles to the mistletoe berries, flower and a little shadow beneath the sentiment.

Such a sweet winter image! This new release is so much fun and not just for Christmas so be sure to check it out HERE.

Miss Ink Stamps – Sneak Peek | Sliding By…

Happy Friday friends! I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful. We had a house full and it was such a great day!

Tomorrow is a new release for Miss Ink Stamps and today I have a sneak of the set – Have an Ice Day. It’s SO CUTE and super versatile for winter, holiday and all occasion cards.

I started my card by stamping and coloring the images from Have an Ice Day with my copic markers. Then I used the scan-n-cut to cut them out. Next, I ink blended an A2 size panel with distress oxide inks in chipped sapphire, blueprint sketch and shaded lilac. I spritzed the panel with water and blotted it dry. Then I put it in my splatter box and flicked pearl watercolor all over it. After it was dry, I cut an inch off the bottom and adhered a strip of white glitter cardstock to it.

I added foam tape to the back of the panel and adhered it to a white card base. Then I used a combination of liquid glue and foam tape to add my snowy hill to the bottom left of my card front. Next, I adhered the penguins with foam squares, decided on a sentiment and popped that strip up with foam strips too.

For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to the penguin’s beaks and feet and a little unicorn Stickles to the hat on the top penguin. Then I glued a scattering of stars from the Champagne Stardust sequin mix.

Be sure to check back tomorrow for another project from the release and then head to the Miss Ink shop to see everything and pick up some winter crafting goodies!

Miss Ink Stamps – I Like Big Mugs…

Happy Thursday everyone! I’m back with a little caffeinated inspiration from Miss Ink Stamps today! I had a little fun with one of my favorite gnome sets – Big Mugs and a new stencil – Lava Lamp. I also wanted to change things up a bit so I decided on a circular card today too!

I stamped my gnome out and colored him with copic markers before cutting him out with my scan-n-cut. Then I inked up a brown panel with the lava lamp stencil and white pigment ink using my blending buddy brush. I die cut the panel with an embossed edge circle from Trinity Stamps. Then I cut the next size up circle from kraft cardstock.

I created a white card base with the same circular die and adhered the kraft circle with liquid glue, then popped the stenciled circle up with foam tape. I felt like the gnome needed something behind him so I cut a smaller circle from vellum.

To hide my adhesive, I attached the gnome to the vellum with foam squares and hid tape runner on the back of the vellum behind the gnome only.

Last, I stamped a sentiment on a banner from Newton’s Nook Banner Trio set and popped it up with foam squares under the gnome’s feet.

For finishing touches I added some brown clay hearts from the Twiddler’s Nook Caffeinated Crafting embellishment mix and gave the image some white gel pen highlights.

Tomorrow is the last day to play along with the Coffee Lovers Fall | Winter Hop. Have you played along yet? I’m entering this cutie for sure!

Miss Ink Stamps – Frosty Hellos

Hello again! This wee sure is chugging along quickly! I have another fun Miss Ink Stamps card to share with you but today I’m going for more of a winter feel with one of my favorite sets – Say Cheese! These mice and their sidekicks are too cute for words and so fun to create with!

Today I inked up the penguin and the mouse with the coordinating penguin hat and colored them with copic markers. I used the scan-n-cut to cut them out and adhered them together. Then I took a dark blue cardstock panel and spread Thermoweb iridescent glitz glitter gel through the frosty flakes stencil.

While that was drying, I went digging for a different sentiment and found just the perfect one in the snow buddies set. I stamped it in dark blue and cut it out with a Pink & Main large sentiment strip die. Next, I decided it would be fun to put a snowflake behind my images instead of a simple circle or something. I cut the Trinity Stamps big snowflake cut and foil dies from light blue cardstock and iridescent vellum and adhered the layers together with liquid glue. Next, I popped the mouse and penguin up with foam squares and also added some to the back of the sentiment strip too.

Once the stenciled panel was dry, I popped it up on a white card base with foam tape. Next, I added the snowflake with liquid glue and added the sentiment strip below that.

For finishing touches I went over all the eyes with black glaze pen, let it dry and added white gel pen highlights back in. Then I finished things off with glossy accents on the hat pompoms, mouse nose and penguin beak.

Miss Ink Stamps – It’s Always Tea Time

Hey friends! I’m over on the Miss Ink Stamps blog today sharing a Mad Hatter tea card. I just love the Alice series of stamps and it had been a while since I pulled them out so obviously it was past time to do so!

To create my card, I started with stamping images from Tea Party and colored them with my copic markers. I used the scan-n-cut to cut them all out and adhered the pieces to the table that I wanted sitting on top. Next, I inked up a kraft cardstock panel with the lava lam stencil and some brown dye ink. Then I layered the Ins & Outs Marquis window stencil and inked it up first with green and then dark gray. I like layering colors of ink blending for subtle shadows and hints of color.

Next I layered the Marquid frame over the panel and spread Thermoweb transfer gel blanco through it. I set it aside to dry for a bit and then heated up my laminator. Once it was ready, I ran it through with emerald watercolor deco foil. I removed it and began placing my images.

After much deliberation I sliced the table in half and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue. Then I popped the Hatter up with foam squares and placed the panel in my MISTI. I chose a sentiment from Tea Party and stamped it with brown ink.

I absolutely couldn’t waste the other half of the table or the March Hare that I had originally colored either…so let’s take a peek inside my card!

Sometimes it’s fun to bring the scene into your card too! I decided I wanted another sentiment inside this time so I chose one from wonderland wisdom and stamped it in the same brown ink.

After that I moved back to the front of the card for some simple glossy accents in various places for finishing touches.

Miss Ink Stamps – Peace and Joy

Welcome back friends! Today I’m sharing a sweet Christmas card featuring a couple of sets from Miss Ink Stamps. I love the variety of background scene setting images Miss Ink carries and her critters and characters are amazing to go with them!

Today I chose the Mountainside stamp for my background. I inked it up on a white panel and then used my blending buddy brushes and some Lawn Fawn dye inks to color in the scene. I stamped a sentiment from Little Angel in the top right corner and switched over to my images.

I chose a few images from Little Angel which I stamped and colored with my copic markers. Then I used the scan-n-cut to cut them out and added foam tape to the back. I thought the background was a little lacking so I splattered pearl watercolor over the scene before adhering it to a white card base. This panel is 5.5×4 inches so there was room for a white glitter cardstock strip at the bottom. Then I added a dark gray strip over the meeting of the two with foam strips.

Finally, I added my images and moved on to finishing touches. For that, I just added a little glossy accents to the deer and squirrel noses, carrot stems and the wreath on the angel’s head. Then I finished things off with some unicorn Stickles on her wings.

I just love how serene this scene feels and think it will be a wonderful addition to my Christmas card stash to mail out. Have you started making Christmas cards yet? It’s going to sneak up on us super quick, I just know it!

Miss Ink Stamps – Snow One Like You

Hello friends! Today I have a festive, wintery card for you featuring stamps and stencils from Miss Ink Stamps. I paired an older stencil, Starry Night, with one of the new releases, Perfectly Plaid. Layering stencils is seriously addicting. I just love mixing and matching them in different cominations.

I actually started my card today by playing with the background first. I inked up the perfectly plaid stencil on kraft cardstock with a brown ink. Then I went over that with the starry night stencil and Thermoweb transfer gel blanco. I set it aside while I decided what images I was going to color up today.

Feeling that Christmas vibe, I stamped and colored the images from Snow One Like You with my copic markers. Then I cut them out with my scan-n-cut. I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock and cut it out with a stitched banner. I heated up my laminator and pulled out some gold decofoil to use on the stenciled panel. Once the laminator was all heated up I ran it through. Then I die cut the panel with a notched corner die from Pink & Main and added foam tape to everything.

I adhered some red cardstock to a white card base and then removed the release paper from the foam squares and tape and popped everything in place, one layer at a time.

Because we all know I can’t leave well enough alone, I added some fun finishing touches next. Glossy accents were in order for the snowman’s eyes and buttons, while the snow was just calling for some glittery Stickles.

I love the rustic feel this card has with the combination of plaid, the color palette and the feel of the images too. It’s perfect!

Miss Ink Stamps – Stencil Week | Autumn Greetings

Hello everyone! It’s time for a super fun stencil release for Miss Ink Stamps! There’s a giveaway over on the Miss Ink Stamps Instagram page but before you head there let me share some fun inspiration with the new Fall Mandala stencil and my favorite little squirrels!

To create my background, I inked up an oversized white panel with gathered twigs and tea dye distress oxide inks. Then I sprayed my fall mandala stencil with pixie spray and stuck it to my panel off center a bit. I inked the stencil up with brown dye ink and then removed it. I splattered the panel with gold watercolor and set it aside to dry.

Next, I stamped and colored one of the squirrels from Oh, Nuts! with my copic markers. I used the scan-n-cut to cut it out and added foam squares to the back. Now that my panel is dry, I used an A2 rectangle to cut it down and adhered it to a white card base. I popped it in my MISTI and stamped a sentiment from Autumn Thanks in the top left corner.

Finally, I added my squirrel and his leaves. Then for finishing touches I added black glaze pen to his eyes and nose. After the black was dry I came in with a white gel pen accent on the eyes.

My main focus on today’s card was to add to the stencil and let it shine. I think everything turned out pretty great! Don’t you?!?

Miss Ink Stamps – FaBOOlous Slimline

Hello everyone! I’m so happy to finally share this super fun Miss Ink Stamps ghostie slimline card with you. I just love this stamp set and was so happy how this card turned out. I hope you like it too!

I had a general layout in mind for this card so I stamped the ghosts and large BOO sentiment and used the scan-n-cut to cut them out. Then I stamped and trimmed the other sentiment into a strip. I just used a B0000 copic marker around the edge of the ghosts for a little glowing look. Then I moved over to creating that fun background.

I die cut a stitched slimline panel from black cardstock and used a blending brush with white pigment ink over the Starry Night stencil. Then I inked up the edges of the panel with the ink left on my brush. Then I offset the burst layer from the Rainbow Sky stencil, inserted the circle so it was covered up and spread orange glitz gel through the stencil. I set the panel aside to dry and worked on the base panel.

For this I trimmed a piece of cardstock to 8.5×3.5 inches and inked up the edges with twisted citron distress oxide ink. I spritzed it with water and flicked black acrylic paint all over it.

Once both panels were dry I was ready to assemble my card. I started by adhered the green panel to a white card base. Then I popped the black panel up with foam tape. Next, I used foam squares to adhere the sentiments and one ghost and liquid glue to adhere the other.

Then, voila, my card is all finished! Isn’t it so much fun!?! I love these ghosts so much! Plus all the accessories you can have them hold AND don’t even get me started on all those awesome punny sentiments! So great!!! I love it all!
