Hello everyone! Thanks for stopping by today. I hope your weekend is going splendidly! I have a fun, masculine feeling slimline card for the dog lover in your life featuring Jane’s Doodles Dogs stamp set along with some other goodies from my stash.
I started this card by stamping and heat embossing images from Jane’s Doodles Dogs stamp set. I watercolored them with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and then used the scan-n-cut to cut them all out.
Next, I used the Newton’s Nook Slimline Frames and Portholes set to cut the green panel. Then I stamped the Trinity Stamps Woodsy image on it in dark green ink for a little added interest. Next, I took the Newton’s Nook Slimline Frames and Windows and cut it from dark gray cardstock. I kept the frame for another project and took the squares it creates and taped them to the Miss Ink Stamps Pawsome stencil. I used white pigment ink to add paws to the squares. Then I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment on one with black embossing powder.
With all of my elements ready to go I started assembling my card. I added foam tape to the back of the green panel and placed it on a kraft slimline card base. Then I used tape runner to adhere the gray squares to the green panel. I added foam squares to the back of my images and added them to the squares.
Voila! Super cute card that could be used for guys and girls alike. Even for Father’s Day coming up depending on the message you write on the inside.
Oooooo!!! I had so much fun creating today’s Miss Ink Stamps project! I hope you all like it as much as I do!
I recently picked up some of the dies that Miss Ink has in stock and immediately set to creating when they hit my mailbox! And it was so much fun!
I laid everything out on a blank card base to see how it would all fit and then set to work. For the die cutting, I cut the letters and words from black cardstock, then cut “there” from white cardstock an additional 4 times. Next, I used liquid glue to adhere all the layers together. Then I stamped my images from Punny Farm pigs and colored them with copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out and set it aside.
To set my scene, I die cut a Trinity Stamps embossed edge circle and taped it to the Heirloom Bloom stencil. Then I used a couple of Lawn Fawn dye inks and blending brushes to create a sky and ground for my piggy!
Moving on to assembly, I used liquid glue to adhere the images to the circle, except the pig which is popped up with foam squares. Then I added foam tape to the circle and placed it down. I used liquid glue and foam strips to adhere the words in place. Last, but not least, I thought the design could use a little something else so I stamped and colored an additional duck and popped him up with foam squares on the bottom left.
Hey friends! Thanks for stopping by again today. I’m over on the Miss Ink Stamps blog with a new-to-me idea on stenciling and some more of those wonderful Alice in Wonderland stamps! I hope you enjoy it!
For today’s card, I inked up the enchanted stencil with a couple of peachy-red inks and tealy-blue inks. I tried to have them meet just shy if center on my panel so I could put my focus on the upper section of the card. After the panel was inked, I die cut it with a Newton’s Nook scalloped rectangle from the Frames & Flags die set.
After a teammate, Lynnea, had layered her stencils a while ago I’ve been enamored with the idea and wanted to try it with this card. So I taped my panel to the back of the Sparkles stencil and spread glazed pewter Metallix Gel through it. I removed the stencil and set my panel aside to dry.
I stamped and colored an image from Alice with my copic markers and fussy cut her out. Then I chose a sentiment from Wonderland Wisdom, stamped and heat embossed it in silver on a vellum strip. I added foam tape to the back of my stenciled panel and wrapped my sentiment around it. Then I popped it on a white card base and added my Alice image with foam squares.
Have you ever layered stencils like this that aren’t “meant” for each other? I think it’s a fantastic idea and challenge you to give it a try! It extends the use of your goodies and will make you think outside the box. It’s so fun!
Happy Thursday everyone! I recently ordered some older Miss Ink Stamps sets that I had missed when they release so I’m having a blast playing with them. Today I have a fun bubble card to share with some of the cutest critters out there!
To create my card, I stamped images from Bubbles and colored them with my copic markers. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and set it all aside to get messy inky for my background!
For that, I trimmed a piece of white cardstock to 3×5.5 inches and inked it up with tumbled glass, mermaid lagoon and wilted violet distress oxide inks. Next, I took a scrap strip of white cardstock and inked it up with tea dye and gathered twigs distress oxide. I spritzed it all with a distress sprayer and blotted it dry. Then I smooshed some seedless preserves and gathered twigs on my glass mat and spritzed them with water. I used a small paintbrush and splattered the panels with the corresponding color.
Now it’s time to build the scene. I cut a piece of black cardstock to 3.25×5.5 inches and adhered the inked panel. Then I added the ground layers with liquid glue. Next, I adhered that panel to the center of an A2 size white card base.
Then I added the critters with a combination of liquid glue and foam squares. Next, I chose a sentiment and heat embossed it on a black strip with white embossing powder. I trimmed it into a flag shape and added it with foam strips.
For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to critter noses and bubble bottle labels. Then I added unicorn Stickles to edges of the bubbles for a little sparkle.
These guys are just soooo cute and I have tons of ideas for them! Can’t wait to create more fun to share with you!
To create my card, I stamped and heat embossed the two main images in Smokin’ Caterpillars with gold embossing powder on watercolor paper. Then I watercolored the whole scene with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. After the panel was dry, I die cut it with the new Trinity Stamps Clean and Simple Mini Slimline Panels. I created a 3×6 inch card base and adhered my scene to it. Then I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from Wonderland Wisdom on a green cardstock strip that went with the tones of the watercolor. Then I used the banner die cut in the Trinity Stamps Mini Slimline Card and Envelope die set. I popped it up on the scene with foam strips.
Next, I used the envelope dies in the same set to create a custom envelope for my card. I die cut the pieces from kraft cardstock and stamped the caterpillar on the front. I adhered it all together with scrappy tape and my project is complete.
Hi there everyone! I’m so glad you’re joining me today. I’m sharing another adorable pup from the Miss Ink Stamps Rub-a-dub Doggies stamp set, along with a couple of new stencils too!
I started today’s card by inking up the Hand Drawn Hearts stencil with a couple of different green inks, then I added a little depth to some areas with a teal shadow here and there. I like how it turned out. Next, I trimmed the panel down to 4×5.25 inches and taped it to the Inks & Outs Paw Print stencil. I smeared Thermoweb transfer gel blanco through it, removed the stencil and set the panel aside to dry.
In the mean time, I turned on my laminator and stamped and colored one of the smaller images from Rub-a-dub Doggies with my copics. I fussy cut him out, added foam squares to the back and set him aside.
Once the stars were aligned – aka, my gel was dry and the laminator was heated up – I ran the stenciled panel through with some green envy deco foil flock. Next, I put the panel in my MISTI and stamped a sentiment in Lawn Fawn mermaid ink. I found cardstock the same color, trimmed it to A2 size and adhered it to a white card base. I added foam tape to the back of the stenciled panel and popped it in place. Finally, I added my pup!
For finishing touches, I just had to add some star dust Stickles to random bubbles, glossy accents to his nose and black glaze pen to his eyes.
These images just get me every time! I love them! I love how you can mix and match different stencils together too! That brings loads of options into view!
Hi there friends! Today I have an adorable Miss Ink Stamps card to share with you. It features the Say Cheese! stamp set which I absolutely adore! It’s got super cute images and wonderful sentiments! I paired it with the Scene Builder: Meadow stamps and Basket Case stencil to create my card today.
I started by stamping one of the images from the meadow scene builder on a white panel and colored it with my copic markers. Then I took another panel and trimmed it down to 4×5.25 inches and cut a circle window from the center. I taped the basket case stencil in pace and inked it up with a light gray ink.
Finally, I stamped images from Say Cheese and colored them with my copics. I used the scan-n-cut to cut them out and moved on to assembling my card.
To make sure the scene showed through my window correctly, I used post-it tape to tape the scene and the window panels together, added glue to the back and adhered the scene panel to a card base. I removed the tape and added foam tape to the back of the window panel, then placed it down. Next, I added foam squares to the back of my images and added them to the scene.
I chose my sentiment, placed my card in my MISTI and stamped it at the bottom. For finishing touches, I added star dust Stickles to the pom poms on the mouse’s hat and flowers in the meadow. Then I added glossy accents to the owl beaks and feet, and the mouse’s nose too.
This was a really fun card to create! I hope you liked it and found some inspiration to create something wonderful.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
Hey friends! Miss Ink Stamps came out with an amazing new release a couple weeks ago and I finally carved out some time to play with the new rainbow builder stencil set and I’m officially obsessed! I have rainbows everywhere…literally. I love them in all different combinations, shapes and sizes! They are so much fun! I paired them with some of my favorite Thermoweb products to step them up a notch and added sentiments from the amazing new Sunshine and Rainbows sentiment stamp set!
So, today I have 3 cards and a tag to share with you! Aren’t they all so much fun!?! I can’t get over looking at them. Let’s take a look at each one and I’ll go through the basics of how I put them together.
First up is the super fun slimline card because it was probably the most labor intensive one of them all. To ink the rainbows I started by marking the center of the paper with a pencil and did the first stencil layer (red and green on this one). I inked them up center, left, then right. This goes for all of the cards, I inked up everything for one stencil first, then everything for the second, and finished with the decorative layer last. The white panel for this card is 8.5×2.75 inches. I added 1/4 inch strips of silver glitter paper to the top and bottom and popped it up on a yellow slimline panel. Then added it to a white card base. I finished things off by stamping a sentiment on a Newton’s Nook banner trio die and popping it up with foam squares.
For this sherbet rainbow cuteness, I inked up the layers with some lighter, non-traditional colors. Then finished things off with bubblegum glitz gel! I stamped the sentiment with the same purple that I inked the outer layer with. The white panel measures 3.75×5 inches and is popped up on a piece of Lawn Fawn teal Let it Shine paper. That measures 4×5.25 inches and is popped up on a white card base.
This card is just so much fun! I inked up the rainbows in all different color combinations and then spread transfer gel through the decorative stencil layer and set it aside to dry. While it was drying, I turned on the laminator to heat up and also stamped and heat embossed a sentiment on black cardstock. I trimmed that into a strip and cut a banner tail on one end. When everything was ready, I ran the rainbow panel through the laminator with silver shattered glass decofoil! It’s sooooo cool in the light! I trimmed the panel down to 4×5.25 inches and popped it up on a white card base. Then I added foam strips to the sentiment and popped it on the left-middle-ish of the design. (That’s a very technical term.) 😉
Last but not least, I thought it would be fun to ink up a tag in the mix of everything else. So I die cut the Newton’s Nook Fancy Edges Tag twice from white and once from black. Then I used one of the fancy edges to cut a topper from the black and glued it to one of the white ones. I lined up the rainbow stencil and inked up the layers. I spread transfer gel through the decorative layer again and let it dry. This time I used blue decofoil flock for a little fuzzy fun texture! Last, I popped it in my MISTI and stamped a sentiment on the top left of the tag. Then I chose a few fun ribbons and threaded them through both tags and tied it with baker’s twine. I like having the double layer of tags so I can write on the back one and don’t have to worry about anything bleeding through to the pretty front that I decorated.
Phew! That was a lot of rainbows!!! Oh, but wait…while I was impatiently waiting to get my Sunshine and Rainbows stamp set in the mail, I had played with the rainbow stencil and couldn’t resist completing a card. So here’s a fun bonus for you today!
This rainbow has brighter color palette but I used the same silver shattered glass decofoil. Only, this sentiment comes from the new Lovely Unicorns stamp set. Isn’t it just perfect! The white panel measures 4×5.25 and the black is just 1/8 inch wider for a tiny border and there is foam tape between both layers, ending on a white card base.
So much rainbow fun! I hope you enjoyed it all and found a little inspiration to create something wonderful and share it with someone!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
Hello everyone! I have a super fun interactive card to share with you featuring the newly release Rub-a-Dub Doggies from Miss Ink Stamps. This was a quick, clean and simple card to create but it’s so fun to play with!
I stamped and colored that silly pup from Miss Ink Stamps Rub-a-Dub Doggies and used the scan-n-cut to cut him out. Next, I took a white panel measuring 3.75×5 inches and stamped him again, along with the sentiment below. I used a blending brush and inked up the area with a little yellow ink and colored the water drops with a blue marker. I trimmed down an action wobbler and adhered it to the image and then the panel.
Now for assembling the layers on the card front, I took a white card base, added a black panel measuring 4×5.25 inches with foam tape. Then a green panel measuring 3 7/8×5 1/8 inches with liquid glue. Last, I added the puppy panel with foam tape.
For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to the puppy’s nose and collar and the water drops. Then I scattered some Nuvo Crystal Drops in morning dew across the design for that water drop look.
It’s so much fun to flick him and make him shake off all that water. Haha!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
