Miss Ink Stamps – Who Needs Inspirational Quotes…

Hi there! I’ve got a fun Miss Ink Stamps card to share with you today featuring a mini scene from the Java Joe stamp set. I’m always drawn to using the main images in a set but sometimes I remember to look at it differently and use other bits and pieces too. That’s how today’s card came about.

I stamped and heat embossed images from Java Joe’s on Bristol Smooth cardstock and watercolored them with my copic markers. Then I used the scan-n-cut to cut them all out.

Next, I blended distress oxide inks on a panel and spritzed it with water. I flicked some gold watercolor across it and left it to dry.

Once it was dry, I trimmed it to A2 size and used my images as a guide where to stamp my sentiment. I used the MISTI to stamp it with VersaFine ink so it gave a really good impression over the distress oxides. Then I added foam squares to my images and plopped them in place.

For finishing touches I just glued down a scattering of black rhinestones from the Twiddler’s Nook shop.

I just love all the texture this card has between the watercolor and ink blending. It’s so great!

Miss Ink Stamps – Sow’s It Going?

Hey friends! I’m over on the Miss Ink Stamps blog today with a fun slimline featuring some of my favorite piggies around! I have a little cheater technique for a great card with little coloring on a huge detailed background too.

I started by stamping the Hay Daze scene image on a piece of golden cardstock with copic friendly ink. Then I came in with darker copics and gave selective color to my background scenes. Things that were green and red were easy to choose and then I used an orange on the sun so it wasn’t totally lost. Then I used a blending brush and light brown ink to ink up the edges of the whole panel.

Next, I stamped two piggies from Punny Farm Pigs and colored them with copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Then, so they didn’t stand out too much with their white border, I used a copic the same color as the cardstock to color in the edges of them. I used foam squares and popped them up on my scene panel.

Next, I placed the panel in my MISTI and stamped a sentiment from Punny Farm Pigs at the top. Then I added black glaze pen to the pigs’ eyes. Once that way dry I came back in with a white gel pen highlight. This gives the eyes a little shine and helps them stand out and bring the critters to life.

Last, I used liquid adhesive to adhered my panel to a slimline card base measuring 3.5×8.5 inches. I didn’t add any sparkle or shine to this card because I just loved how the muted tones really felt like fall. I didn’t want to detract from that, but if you prefer, you totally could add all the usual glitz and glam!

Miss Ink Stamps – Mugs and Kisses

Hello again! I have a festively fall Miss Ink Stamps card to share with you today featuring the Pumpkin Spice Latte gnomie and some other products as well.

I started my card by stamping the Pumpkin Spice Latte image and colored it with my copics. Then I used the scan-n-cut to cut it out and started digging through stencils for a background. Nothing was really working for me so I switch to finding a sentiment in the Brewtiful stamp set and stumbled on the Woodgrain background stamp and thought it would give a fun feel.

I heat embossed it in gold on a piece of brown cardstock. Then I went over the whole panel with gathered twigs distress oxide ink and spritzed it with water. I trimmed it to 4×5.25 inches and added foam tape to the back. I popped it on a light green card base and then added foam tape to the back of my images.

I stamped a sentiment from Brewtiful and trimmed it into a strip adding it below the main image. Then I finished things off with a scattering of gold baubles from the Twiddler’s Nook shop and some glossy accents on things like pumpkins, accents on the mug and the coffee beans.

Miss Ink Stamps – You’re the Hippest

Hello everyone! Thank you so much for stopping by today. I have a super cute, punny hippo card to share with you today featuring Miss Ink Stamps stencils and Hippo Hooray stamp set.

To create my card, I cut a white cardstock panel to A2 size and a yellow cover panel 1/8 inch smaller on both sides. This makes the yellow panel measure 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inches. Using my hippo stamp as a guide, I cut a circle off the edge of the yellow panel.

Then I places both panels in my MISTI and lined up the stamps. I removed the yellow one and stamped my images. Then I used my copics to color the hippo and a light blue for a watery background.

Next, I sprayed my floral wave offset stencil with pixie spray and stuck it to the yellow panel. I inked it up with a brighter yellow ink and a blending brush. I removed that stencil and taped the tiny snowfall stencil down next. This time I spread champagne metallix gel from Thermoweb through it. I removed the stencil and cleaned everything up. While it was drying, I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment, then die cut it with a banner from Trinity Stamps Mini Slimline Card and Envelope Builder die set. It fits most of these sentiments perfectly!

Moving on to assembly and finishing touches, I adhered the colored panel to a white card base. Then I backed the yellow panel with foam tape and popped it in place. Last I added foam squares to the sentiment banner and added it to the bottom of the circle cut out.

For finishing touches I went over the hippo eyes with black glaze pen and when then dried I gave it a white gel pen highlight. I added glossy accents to the hippos teeth and feet. I gave the bubbles a little unicorn Stickles for fun and then finished things off with a scattering of Trinity Stamps seashore confetti mix.

Miss Ink Stamps – Trick or Treat Photo Booth Strip

Hello everyone! I’m popping in with a fun card featuring some adorable Halloween critters from Miss Ink Stamps. I got this set last year and love it so much! I was super happy to be able to pull it out again and ink it up.

Today I’ve paired it with some great ink blending and an MFT Stamps photo booth strip die for a fun design element.

I started by stamping and coloring the critters from Boo Crew with my copic markers. Then I used the scan-n-cut to cut them out. Next, I cut the photo booth strip die from orange cardstock and inked the edges up with black soot distress ink. Then I cut a black panel slightly smaller than that and flicked some pearl and gold watercolor on it. Once it was dry I glued the two together and added my critters to it.

Next, I ink blended a panel with distress oxides in wilted violet, seedless preserves and twisted citron. Then I spritzed the panel with water and flicked some watered down black paint on it too. Once the panel was dry I die cut it with a Trinity Stamps Modern Embossed Edge Rectangle die. I adhered the panel to a card base and then popped the photo booth strip up with foam tape.

Last, I stamped a few sentiments from the set on a strip of cardstock and trimmed them apart. I used a combination of liquid glue and foam strips to adhere them in place. For finishing touches I adhered a scattering of glow-in-the-dark stars from Twiddler’s Nook and added a little glossy accents to the critters eyes.

Miss Ink Stamps – You Inspire Me

Welcome back friends! I’m here to share a card featuring stamps and stencils from Miss Ink Stamps today. I got a little inky and also did a little foiling for some bling on today’s card. Let’s jump right in.

I started by choosing one of the floral images from the new Blooming Brushes stamp set. I stamped it twice, colored it with my copic markers and used the scan-n-cut to cut them out. Next, I cut a kraft panel to 4×5.25 inches and centered up the smaller Ins & Outs Quatrefoil stencil on it. I inked it up using a blending brush and brown ink. Then I centered the Circular Harlequin stencil and used a green ink on that. I removed both stencils and then taped down the Quatrefoil frame stencil in place. I spread Thermoweb transfer gel blanco on that and set it aside to dry.

Once it was dry, I heated up my laminator and ran it through with grass green decofoil. After removing that I decided to add texture to the panel so I flicked watered down brown ink all over. Once that was dry I used the floral images as a guide and stamped my sentiment in the center. Then I added foam tape to the back and adhered it to a white card base.

Next, I added the floral images with foam squares and moved on to simple finishing touches. For that I just used glossy accents on the flower centers with the exception of the small blue ones. For those I added some waterfall Stickles.

Miss Ink Stamps – Birthday Gnomes Part 2

Hello again! I’m back with Part 2 of the Miss Ink Stamps Birthday Gnomes card set. These cuties are so much fun I couldn’t just make one card with them. So I’m back today using the rest of the images from the set.

I started things by stamping and coloring the images in a limited color palette. Then I pulled from those colors for my background panel and card base.

For the background I used the two stencils in the Layered Small Alternating Dots stencil set. I inked up the larger dots with a purple ink and then positioned the smaller dots in between and spread gold glitz glitter gel from Thermoweb through the stencil.

Once it was dry, I added foam tape to the back of the panel and adhered it to a pink card base. Then I used a combination of liquid adhesive and foam squares to adhere all of my images. I chose a sentiment from the set, stamped it and trimmed it into a rectangle. Then I mounted it on a piece of black cardstock and popped it up as well.

For finishing touches I added a mixture of white gel pen highlights and glossy accents across the images.

Isn’t the glitzy background super cute with this sweet girl gnome? I just love the vibe this card has. It’s so fun!

Miss Ink Stamps – For My Friend…

I just can’t resist this fabulous pup from Miss Ink Stamps in the Slim’s Whims stamp set. He’s too fun to color and the sentiments crack me up! So I’m back again today with another card I made featuring him.

I stamped Slim and colored him up with my copic markers. Then I used the scan-n-cut to cut him out. I chose a sentiment and trimmed it into a strip, then switched gears to stencil my background.

I wanted to play off the army green that I used for his glasses so I chose a dark orangey-red cardstock and my scallop stencil from the Miss Ink Stamps Basics Bundle. I used an ink from my stash similar to the cardstock for a tone-on-tone look. Once the inking was done I used liquid glue to adhere it to a white card base. Next, I die cut a piece of kraft cardstock with a Trinity Stamps Embossed Edge rectangle die and then took a die 2 sizes down and cut the center out creating a frame.

I added foam strips to the back of the frame and popped it in place. Then I added foam tape to the back of Slim and the sentiment strip and placed them on the card front too.

To finish things off I glued down a scattering of Trinity Stamps gold satin baubles around the design. I love how these colors play off of each other. Great for a masculine card if you needed one!
