It’s Your Day!

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today with a sneak peek for Penguin Palace’s new release with another adorable set named, It’s Your Day.

In this set, there’s a variety of images but I focused on two of the characters and two accessory items. I wanted to create a small storyline of someone enjoying a glamorous day.

I stamped out the images I wanted to use on rectangles and I masked them off so I could use distress oxide inks to color up the background. I added both water and silver paint splatter to them for a bit more interest.

After coloring up the images, I lined the rectangle edges with a black pen creating a frame. I really loved how these came out. I wanted them to be the main focus but needed to add the sentiment for the card. I chose a piece of Smokey Eyes card stock and it has this really fine, pretty sandstone texture to it. It was a bit hard to picture, but you can notice it in the picture above. If you haven’t tried the cardstock from the store, I highly recommend it. I am really enjoying the subtle texture on the card stock that provides a little interest in the background but not deterring away from your main focus of the card.

I stamped the sentiments directly on the card stock, having no issues even with the texture and trimmed the card panel so I could mat it on black cardstock. I wanted to tie the black color back to the lined rectangles.

That’s it for today’s card. I really like the colors that pop against the neutral grey and I hope you enjoyed it too!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the sneak peeks. Come back again soon for some more inspiration and ideas!

9 Quick & Easy Cards Gift Set

I love the idea of card sets as gifts and when a set like this comes along, it’s the first thing to come to mind. Breakfast Fun is perfect for it. It has images that go with each sentiment in the set so I’m able to use every single thing in this stamp set at once.

I also created a video to go with these cards so please check it out if you’re interested in how these all come together.

Here’s all nine of them! I was able to utilize the entire stamps set along with the sentiments and I think that’s amazing to do.

No Line Coloring – Friendly Bunch

Hi everyone! I’m here to share a card I created using The Stamp Market’s stamp set named, Friendly Bunch.

I met Amy, the owner of The Stamp Market, when I visited her booth at Creativation and she was so sweet. When she spoke about her products, you could tell she was so passionate and genuine. I really was inspired to go home and ink up one of her stamp sets… so I did.

I also met Fleurette, owner at Inkon3, at Creativation and wanted to practice some no-line coloring using her Fadeout Ink.

It took a bit of time to color since this stamp image is pretty large as it takes up most of an A2 panel, but I was really proud of myself once completed. Generally, it’s a very simple card since the floral image makes up for the entire card. The sentiment in the set is also really large, so it took up the empty space on the bottom. To add a little different interest to it, I stamped the smaller portion of the sentiment on black cardstock, and heat embossing using white embossing powder.

I love how this card came together. If you love no-line coloring, you really need to check out this ink… and if you love florals, you really should check out this stamp set. Combined, it makes one gorgeous card.

Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon!

25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hello there! Thanks for stopping by and checking out the tags I created for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags.

For me, I love creating multiple tags at the same time and make them a little different from each other with similar aspects. I decided to use Scalloped Circle Dies as a base for my tags. The shape generally looks like a wreath so this was perfect. First, I used two different patterned papers from the Sunrise paper pad to die cut a larger shape and die cut a smaller piece using white cardstock.

I wanted a bow and although the stamp set, Bowtiful, would be perfect for this, I really wanted to use the bow die from the Winter Wreath Decor dies. I cut out two using white cardstock and colored them in using alcohol markers, adding the look of dimension to them.

I love the layers of the patterns and colors, making the holiday tags look really pretty adn detailed. As a final touch, I took one of the sentiments from Bowtiful that has the “To” and “From”, that finishes off a vital part of a Christmas tag.

Hope you enjoyed the tags here and check out all the other tags created for 25 Days of Christmas Tags.

Have a great day!

Galaxy Backgrounds | Mama Elephant

Hi there! I received a bunch of questions about the galaxy backgound for one of my previous cards, so I decided to put together a video to show how I created two different ones using distress inks and white cardstock.

It’s definitely the perfect background for a card that doesn’t need much else.

I have had this set for awhile and even though they are perfect for Christmas cards, it also works for birthday cards or just because cards.

For this card, I used colors for the balloons that matched the colors peeking through the galaxy in the background, making it really playful and whimsical.

IMG_5903

For the second card, I really wanted to play with purple colors for a galaxy instead of a typical dark blue and black background. I like how this looks so different from the first one, with just a few color changes. It makes such a big difference.

If you’re interested in learning more, below is my video showing my process video of these two cards.

Pink & Main – WOW Blog Hop

Hello there! Thanks for joining me today in Pink & Main’s blog hop collab with WOW! Embossing Powder. I actually did a 1 for 2 card to share today.

42090699_10156971156679683_5272965803526848512_n

My focus is using the Basket Cover die for today’s two cards. The intricateness of this card is amazing and it allows you to create a background easily. You can always die cut out a piece of paper in multiple colors to use it. However, for today, I decided to mix this with heat embossing powders to create a different effect.

First of all, I die cut a white piece of cardstock using the Basket Cover die. Taking that die cut, I placed it over another piece of white cardstock and pressed my Versamark ink all over. This way, I could add both Metallic Gold Rich Pale and Aztec Glintz to the negative space of the die cut. IMG_5135.JPG

Once I finished adding the embossing powder, I heat set it. This was a perfect background for my first card, paired with the Season of Change stamp set. I trimmed down my card panel and added it to a dark brown cardstock. I added the images and a strip of brown for the sentiment to the front panel and my card is done. I love the subtle glimmer from the embossing power.

IMG_5325.JPG

Since I used the die cut for the first background and already added Versamark ink to it, I decided not to waste it and added the same two embossing powders on it. Once I finished, I heat set and it works perfectly for a second background.

IMG_5324.JPG

For this second card, I also used the Season of Change stamp set. I decided to cut two of scalloped circles from the Scallop Circle die set out of a piece of Kraft and Dark Brown cardstock. These two scalloped circles help the focus go to the image instead of the background and I think it turned out pretty simple and cute.

Split Canvas Art

Hello everyone! I’m back today to share a card I put together based off of one of my favorite decorative items, split canvas art. I always love the look of it and wanted to translate that into a card. The only issue is the idea of cutting up an image that you spent time coloring but I think it’s totally worth it.

IMG_5402.JPG

The thin sentiment finishes off the card nicely. Check out how I put this all together here:

Snow Marker | Mama Elephant

Hi there!

I finally got myself to make a Christmas card, thanks to the new release by Mama Elephant! When I received the new release in the mail, I knew I just had to create something immediately.

I wanted something pretty simple and the Grid Window die from Mama Elephant made it really easy. I just colored up 12 snowmen and my card was more or less done. The special element to this card was using the Snow Marker. The snow marker dispenses a liquid that when heat is added, it’ll puff it up like snow. I added it to all the windows for the snowmen to sit on.

Origami & Stamping | Lawn Fawn

Happy Sunday everyone! As a little kid, I always really enjoyed origami… whether it was folding cranes or folding up notes into hearts. It’s been an art, I’ve always enjoyed and today, I decided to mix it with stamping and cardmaking.

The basic origami shape I’m using is a boat for this card using Lawn Fawn’s Ahoy Matey stamp set. With a 3D card, there was an issue of the back of the image and alcohol ink bleeding, but I ended resolving it. You can see how in the video below.

I really ended up loving this card and how it ended up as a final product.

Here is the video for the card so you can see the process (and issues) behind the scenes of this card. Hope you have an amazing day!

Rainbow Background | Simon Says Stamp

Hello there! I’ve had Simon Says Stamp’s Beautiful Flower stamp set for such a long time and I never used it because it is such a large floral image. I just couldn’t do it justice in my head. I finally pulled it out to create something super fun and outside my comfort zone.

I usually am pretty OCD but with alcohol inks… you just can’t be. They have a mind of their own! Even if you loved how something turned out, the chances of you duplicating the same again, is nearly impossible.

I decided for today’s card to let the image speak for itself. It’s only stamped and heat embossed on vellum and yet, it makes such a statement against the alcohol ink. I wanted to do a super colorful background and what is more colorful than the colors of the rainbow.

Z Fold Card | Sweet Stamp Shop

Hello there!

I really loved this set from Sweet Stamp Shop’s latest release and I just HAD to do something fun with that girl on the trapeze. She had to hang from something right? I ended up using a z fold card to create the dimension I needed to do her justice.

Side Step | MFT Lucky Dog

Hello! I am so excited to share this card because this is one of my favorite cards that I’ve made in a long time.

My friend LOVES dogs and I needed to create a birthday card for her. I have a lot of dog stamp sets, but I think the MFT Lucky Dog is one of my favorite ones. The variety is awesome.

I imagined this backyard scene with a dog house and a fence with a dog peeking in. I adore that dog that this set includes, having his face and behind!
