Written in the Stars

Hi everyone! No copic coloring on today's card but I did get inky! This card is playing along with the Wednesday Challenge from Simon Says Stamp. Unfortunately, I do not have any Impression Obsession stamps but I do have tons of stamps with sentiments. Complete supply list down below. 

I love this new set from My Favorite Things.

I created the background by using the distress inks Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch, and Black Soot. I opted for distress inks instead of the oxides because the oxides have more of a chalky look and I wanted something a little more vibrant for my sky. I blended on Bristol Smooth Cardstock as its really smooth and great for blending.



Once the inks were blended, I splattered some water on and added some white paint splatters.


The words Stars in the middle I cut from white cardstock about 3 times from the Shining Stars Die. Then layered them up and attached together using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. I had previously mixed some Perfect Pearls in a small spritzer with water and sprayed a nice coat on the layered word die. Pictures really don't do justice for how beautiful it came out. The sentiment comes from the Written in the Stars Stamp set that I stamped with Gina K Black Onyx ink and cut down into a small strip.




Something new .... to me!

Hey Everyone! I just wanted to pass along some companies that I'll be using in the coming future. School will be starting soon and even though I will miss the chaos around the house, it will be nice to get back to working during the day when they are gone haha! Crafting has been limited to evenings so we could enjoy the summer.

So these companies have some very fun and unique stamps, dies and embellishments! I highly suggest checking them out ! I'm working on some orders but by the time they come in I will most likely be on small "mini mommy vacation" that I take to Minnesota next week. I promise though, I will have cards and videos to share down the road though!

First we have HoneyBee Stamps

Honey Bee Stamps
Not only do they carry stamps, dies and my favorite of course is stencils but they also have some really unique embellishments, inks, art supplies - I mean really - you have to check it out - they have a TON of stuff! 

Next is Studio Katia

One thing that drew my attention to this company was the simplicity of some of these stamps. They are beautifully designed as well. They also carry dies, sequins mixes, seed beads, watercolors, and  a few other embellishments. Definitely worth checking out! 

Another company is Ellen Hutson. Now I have purchased from here before for supplies and let me say super shipping department! 

They have a huge variety of products whether it be crafting supplies, stamps, dies .. you name it! From various stamp companies. 


I hope you take a second to check these companies out! I'm excited to be sharing them with you and my creations. These are just in addition to what I'm already using so it will be fun to add these to my craft stash! 

I just wanted to note that none of these companies have asked me to use their stamps or gifted me anything. This is all on my own. Also - if you haven't already it would be a great idea to sign up for email notifications off on my sidebar. Then all my fun news will be delivered right to you and you won't have to hunt down my posts.

Online Card Class Continued

Hello! Continuing on with some cards I made for the Rainbow Maker card class ..... 

I didn't get as much done for the rest of the days but I still have some to share.
(some of the products I used are listed down below) 

This one I believe was Day 2 with Rainbow Stamping. I stamped the word Together using the rainbow stamping and since I was using my Misti, I stamped over it again with versamark and applied some glitterly embossing powder.


You may have seen this one on Instagram if you are a following. Day 3 covered Rainbow die cutting. 

There was actually quite a few fun techniques covered on Day 4 but the only one that really turned out for me was this one lol .... This one is ink smooshing onto watercolor cardstock.

Day 5 - another day filled with lots of great techniques. I didn't quite have all the supplies needed so I improvised. This one starts with an ink blended background. Placing a stencil on top, I then applied Versamark and clear embossing powder. This probably would have out a lot better if I had waited for my blended background to totally dry haha! oh well... still came out pretty cool I think.
There was so much covered in these classes and it was definitely a lot of fun! I highly recommend checking it out if you haven't yet. There was still more but this was all I was able to get completed.

Neat & Tangled - It's Your Day!

Neat & Tangled is turning 5 and they are celebrating all month long! If you haven't viewed their stamps before, you definitely have to check them out ! They have some stinkin cute designs, dies to match and beautiful sequins mixes!  I snagged up the new release pretty fast and it got it in record time.

(all the supplies are linked down below) 

My card today serves a couple purposes. For 1.)... I just really wanted to color up these critters haha! and 2.) it fits perfectly with the Simon Says Stamp challenge.

How cute are these critters?! I started off by stamping them out onto Neenah White Cardstock using my Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and coloring with copic markers. There are coordinating dies for it but I ended up just cutting them out with my Scan n Cut machine. 

For my background, I did some ink blending onto Bristol smooth cardstock with Distress Oxides Peacock Feather and Abandoned Coral then spritzing it with my distress sprayer for some water splotches. 

I stamped "it's your day" onto the card from the Hooray stamp set and "Go Wild" I heat embossed with Simon Says Stamp white embossing powder. Next I added the critters using some foam squares and finished it off with some pretty sequins. 


Super sweet right?!

Online Card Classes Rainbow Maker

I'll be splitting these posts up throughout the week because I have quite a few cards to share. I joined in the fun with Online Card Classes Rainbow Maker. It's amazing class filled with tips, tricks, techniques and lots of ideas taught by some amazing artists.

I made sure to take a little bit of time each day to work on some things from the class and then put final touches on them over the weekend. I really enjoyed the first day so I have quite a few cards for that one! I hope it doesn't bore you haha! I strongly recommend checking out the classes and you can still purchase them.

I will list out the supplies at the bottom of the post. So grab some coffee and sit back ... warning ... one card does have some slight profanity.

Day - Rainbow Inking (of course my favorite!)

Day 1 started with ink blending. This first card was ink blending from the center and going around. I used a variety of inks on this card including: Distress Inks - Wild Honey, Gina K Cherry Red & Jelly Bean Green, Simon Says Stamp Ink Hot Mama & High Dive, Close To My Heart Orange. I will be using these colors throughout the class.

This next card I used my Clarity brushes to brush on color and then go over top in the same colors with a stencil. I chose the Polka Dot Stencil. The I die cut the word Stars using the Dienamics Shining Stars Die 3 ties from black cardstock so I could layer it. I also added the sentiment from the Written in the Stars Stamp Set.


This next one was a really fun technique of adding a stencil on top of a stencil. The sentiment is new from CZDesign and it may not be everyone's cup of tea but I thought it was hilarious! Some people aren't into flowers and unicorns and that's ok. We all have different tastes.

This was another stencil on top of a stencil and it took a little work lol .... but I am happy with the results. 

This card is ink blending using only 3 inks.... blending the red and yellow to make orange and mixing the yellow and blue inks to make green.  The Hooray die is new from Neat & Tangled that I layered up and spritzed with some glitter spritz.

Whew! That was a lot of cards and if you stuck with me the whole time - kuddos to you!! I will try and link up most of the products that I used. I was all over the board when creating these cards - you should have seen my desk! Thank you for stopping in!

MFT Sketch 345 - Otterly Love you

I'm playing along with the MFT Sketch 345 challenge for my card this afternoon. I love the simplicity of this design. 

**Quick side note - if you haven't already up to follow my (links on the sidebar) now is a good time! I have a jam packed week of cards  to share starting tomorrow!**

I using the Otterly Love You stamp set and stamped out some cute otters and the rocks onto some Neenah White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored them up with my copic markers and ran them through my Scan n Cut machine

 To create my background, I ink blended using the distress inks: Broken China, Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch. Then I spritzed it with my Tim Holtz Distress Sprayer and dabbed away the water droplets to leave that cool water spot effect. I die cut my circle from the Zig Zag Stitched Circle Die with Neenah White cardstock. The rocks I tucked in and adhered to the bottom of the circle before adding it to my card,
I adhered it all together and for a finishing touch I added some sequins from the Enchanting set from Lucy's Cards. I hope you enjoyed today's card!
