Trinity New Release Blog Hop

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to be a part of Trinity Stamps new release blog hop and we’re doing a giveaway! One reader will be randomly selected to receive a $25 Trinity Gift Card. Leave a comment on all the blog hop stops for a chance to win! All the blogs will be linked down below!

So…. I might be biased because I love fall but there’s a TON of super cute items for this release. If you saw my sneak peek card from yesterday over at the Trinity blog, I used Autumn Forest Friends to create an autumn scene. I also snuck in a mini sneak peek into the Sleepy Hollow stamp set.

For today’s card, I focused on the Sleepy Hollow stamp set. This set is super adorable and is perfect to create a full scene card as well. Although it comes with coordinating dies, I opted to go ahead and mask my entire scene.

When creating a more complicated scene, I’ll always stamp out everything first so I can use it as a template to make sure I stamp everything in the correct order. The things you want to appear in front have to be stamped first.

Since I cut out little masks for everything, I wanted to make the most of my card by creating two instead of just one. I went ahead and stamped everything out at the same time using a stamp positioner, which makes life much easier.

Before I get to coloring all my stamped images, I went in with distress inks to create a background using the new Trinity Stamps Blending Buddy Brushes. These brushes are super soft, have a case, and can stand up on their own. Creating the backgrounds were super easy with them!

For my day scene, I used blues and yellows. For my night scene, I went with purples and blues. I also used the new Birch Tree Stencils, which contain the negative and positive stencils, for the background. It added a bit of depth to the card behind my main scene and I didn’t have to think much about it.

Once I finished my backgrounds, I removed all the masks and colored my main image in with alcohol markers. For the day scene, I kept everything bright and happy. For the night scene, I added an element of the light shining from the lantern. I really enjoyed how these two came together. Although it took extra time to create masks and stamp out my scene properly, I think it was totally worth it! I hope you enjoyed both my cards! Do you have a favorite? I personally couldn’t be more thrilled with how my night scene turned out!

Hi everyone! So I know that Day 4 is for Christmas but I actually went outside the box a little and I used a previously featured LDRS Creative die set, Down Main Street Die. I had a vision and I wanted to create it.

For die set, it cuts out this set of buildings and I wanted to use it for a snowy scene. The die comes without the snow but I just easily drew it on the houses. I used alcohol markers to color up the houses. For the yellow lights, I actually ran the die through again using yellow cardstock and I inlaid all the little pieces. It was a bit time consuming but totally worth it!

I created a dark background using some distress inks and added a ton of white ink splatter so it looked like snow. For the sentiment, I grabbed it from the Hydrangeas set. I used the LDRS Watermark ink and heat embossed the “Happy”. For the holidays, I stamped it using Raven ink on white cardstock.

I think this card turned out super cool and hope you enjoyed the out of the box idea for this Christmas card. Thanks for stopping by and remember to hop along for a chance to win!

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today to share a card I created using LDRS Creative’s stamp set named, Halloween High Jinks Stamps. It’s such a perfect set for October and Halloween (obviously). I loved all the little characters in this set and so I was set out to use them all to create a spooky scene.

Although, I didn’t use every single character, I used a lot of the stamp set itself. I laid out all my stamps to figure out where I wanted them to be and to see if there was any overlap. Once I was happy, I stamped them out using Raven hybrid ink. For all the images, I also stamped and created masks out of the Masking Paper. This was the most tedious part but I think it was totally worth it.

I colored all these little characters in and colored up the background. I think that this is such a cute set for Halloween and it’s so fun!

To finish off this card, I stamped out the sentiment and matted it on black so it could stand out. Your eyes go straight to the scene below so I wanted the sentiment to stand out in some way.

And make sure to be back tomorrow for some Christmas/Winter inspiration!

Let’s start overrrr….

Hi there! Summer is almost over and I’ve slowly coming out of a creative coma. The past few months have been super busy with my job (I work full time) along with a bunch of trips that I planned for the summer.

I hit a bit of a slump after I participated in the 30 day coloring challenge. I challenged myself to create a card a day and that was pretty ridiculous. Although, it allowed me to pull out sets that I have hoarded and really forced me to be creative each day… sometimes, too much of a good thing turns out to be a bad thing. It ended up being pretty stressful.

But now, I think I’m back! I’ve been getting inspiration everywhere and you know what, I just want to color!

Thank you for sticking with inconsistent posting over on Facebook and Instagram. I’ve been completely absent from YouTube and I’m planning to get back into posting more videos as well. Stop by and say hello. I’ll be posting more often… I promise!

Big Bold Magnolias – Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us on the Inkon3 blog hop featuring the newest stamp set, Big Bold Magnolias. One of magnolias might look familiar since it’s featured in our Heels to You set, but it’s been so popular, we decided to dedicate an entire stamp set to it.

We are giving away a $25 Inkon3 gift card to one lucky hopper!  To enter leave a comment on each blog in the hop, plus follow us on Facebook and Instagram.  Winners will be announced a week from today, Thursday, September 5, 2019 over on the main Inkon3 blog.

Also, we are officially introducing and welcoming the New Ink On 3 Creative Team!!! I’m super excited to be part of this team and hope we all inspire to bring out your Inkon3 products to use!

Now onto the cards! For today’s blog hop, I decided to create two cards focusing on the biggest magnolia in the set.

My first card, I stamped out the magnolia along with the buds and leaves using Inkon3 Blackout ink. For these images, I used alcohol markers to color them in. I googled magnolias to see what colors they normally come in and most of the pictures I found were pink and white.

That seemed a bit boring, so I did color in with pink but added yellow to the tips to give it something extra. I think the yellow really helps it pop. For the sentiment, I used a sentiment die that also had a shadow and colored it in using the same pinks and yellow to tie it together.

The pattern on the background die gives the background a bit of interest. These stamps really made this card come together so easily.

For my second card, I wanted to do something a little bit more simple. I used a stencil with some glitter paste to add interest to the gray card panel. I went for a different technique on these images by stamping them using the Juicy ink and Artic White embossing powder.

I embossed them because I used watercolor pens to color them in and I love how the embossing powder keeps the colors within the section (makes coloring so easy!). I picked out a simple sentiment and added it below the florals to ground it.

That’s it for both my cards today! I hope you enjoyed them and pick up this set. I already have another idea for this set and think this set can be used in so many ways.

Hi everyone! I hope you’ve been enjoying all the new items and get inspired to create. I have a project using a few of the new release items to create a fun scene card.

First, from the Puddle Jumpers set, I stamped out the large girl with the umbrella. I also stamped on the same image on Masking Paper to create a mask for it.

I split the card panel into two, the bottom for grass and the top for the stormy sky using distress inks. I used the Coming Up Daisies stencil for the fence right over the sky behind the girl. I also used the Rainy Day stencil for the rain. For this one, I used a baby wipe to pick up the color from the sky background.


Once I was done with the scene, I stamped out the sentiment using the Watermark ink and heat embossed it. I love the font of this sentiment. It’s so cute and really ties with the scene card.

I also have a video for the process of how this card came together so check it out if you’re interested!

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie sharing a fun card using the LDRS Creative new release with the amazing stamp set named, Holly – Bunny Tail.

Since this set has a large image with a girl and some smaller images, I really just wanted to use all of them. I stamped out all of them in Raven hybrid ink and once they were all colored, I trimmed them out in squares.

I chose a piece of patterned paper from the new paper pad, Puddle Jumpers, and went with a very subtle pattern. I added all the images right on top and they all fit perfectly. It’s such a simple card but I love how sweet it is.

Knockout Nibbles!

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to be guest designing today for Ink On 3 and sharing a project using the brand new stamp set and die set called Knockout Nibbles. Even the name is adorable!

In celebration of the new release, there’s a special deal happening:
United States
Free shipping on orders of $36 or over.
Coupon code: nibblesfreeship
International
$4 off order of $36 or over.
Coupon code:intnibbles4
Deal ends on May 17th.

For today’s card, I wanted the focus to be on the champion hamster. I love how his arms are raised in victory. I stamped him out using the Blackout Hybrid Ink. I love how crisp this ink is and I can use it with both watercolors and alcohol markers. (P.S. They don’t leave a black stain on your stamps if you clean them right after, which I know most people don’t mind, but it personally irks me). This is such a cute little hamster and it’s so easy to color him up.

I also use the coordinating Knockout Nibbles dies to help cut this out. The image is also pretty easy to fussy cut as well but for this card, I needed the white outline to allow this image to pop off my darker background.

I love the little embellishments in the set and focused on the small sunburst. I wanted to create a ring of these sunbursts so I decided to use a 4 inch square card panel. Using the Juicy Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink, I stamped a first ring of the sunbursts and then heat embossed using gold embossing powder. Then I decided to stamp the interior of the ring and used a satin white embossing powder.

My card is basically complete once I put everything together. I chose the sentiment “You’re A Champ”, stamping the words out using the Blackout Hybrid Ink on white cardstock and trimmed it down. For my card panel, I used a I added the cute little hamster right in the middle.

I’m using a 4.25 x 4.25 square card base for this card. Since my background panel is 4 x 4, it leaves a nice white border around the entire card and really ties in the die cut image along with the sentiment.

I hope you’ve been enjoying this project using the new stamp and die set along with use of the popular inks from Ink On 3. I hope you get inspired to create!

Thanks for stopping by! Come back again soon for some more inspiration and ideas!

Let’s Get Crafty!

Hi everyone! I’m here to share a sneak peek for Penguin Palace’s new release with the awesome stamp set named, Let’s Get Crafty. If you love crafty and artsy stamp sets, this is perfect for you! This is releasing March 20.

I love the main image in this set and wanted to focus on that today. Since this set revolves around being crafty and color, I definitely wanted to include rainbow colors in this. This crafter’s main tool is a paint brush and I wanted the colors to come out it! For this card, I stamped and fussy cut this image out since I am using watercolor, I didn’t want to have to mask off the image.

For this card panel, I used Tombow markers to create this rainbow by drawing lines of color. To blend this out, I used a waterbrush. Of course, it won’t blend perfectly but art and creativity is not meant to be perfect.

I really like how this card turned out and I’m loving how the rainbow colors pop and really pull this card together. I also created a video so you can check out the full process from start to finish. Check it out!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the sneak peek. Come back tomorrow to see another sneak peek of a new stamp set. Can’t wait to show you what’s coming up!

Hi everyone! Thanks for checking out Day 3 of the blog hop for LDRS Creative. I’m sharing a card using one of the sets showcased at Creativation, Hippo Hooray. Similar to Day 1, this set has an interactive image that moves with a brad.

For today’s card, I used a variety of the images. I stamped them out using Raven ink, colored them with alcohol markers, and fussy cut them out. This set doesn’t come with coordinating die because of the nature of the interactive element… It would look odd with the white border a die leaves.

I wanted to create a simple scene for this since I’m using a few images. I just drew in the stage area and used Stamping Mask paper so I could use distress inks to color it quickly. For the stands, I drew in a simple pattern mirroring the stand the little bird is standing on. I also stamped the little star that is in the set to give it a little more decoration.

After the background is colored in, I play with the images deciding where they should go. I want to fit everyone in so I add the dancing hippo to a tightrope.

For the hippo, I trim off the left arm and right leg replacing it with the full arm/leg image included in the set. I picked out a blue flower brad so it looks like she’s wearing a little belt with a flower buckle.

To finish off this card, I stamped the Hip Hippo Hooray sentiment in the middle of the card. Additionally, I trimmed the card panel by a quarter of an inch so it would have a white border around the panel.

This dancing hippo is adorable, don’t you think? If you want a visual of how it works, check out my instagram for a short clip. Thanks for stopping by for this LDRS Creative blog hop! Hope you’ve enjoyed all the inspiration.

Sweet Carousel – Spinner

Hi there! Jeannie back today and I hope you’ve been all enjoying the January release. Everything has been pretty amazing right? I’m blown away from the new sets!

When I first saw the Sweet Carousel set, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. Aren’t these images perfect for a spinner card? And what else do horses on a carousel do other than spin?

I set out to create a really simple version since these images were pretty large so I only needed one. I basically grabbed a piece of acetate to help me create a mirror image of the stamp. I stamped it one on cardstock and then stamped the same image on a piece of acetate. I used the image on acetate and pressed it against the cardstock, transferring the image. It wasn’t perfect but I ended up outlining the image again to darken the lines. Once I finished coloring them, I die cut the images using the coordinating Sweet Carousel dies. For the mirror image, I had to die cut on the backside of the image.

I used a piece of paper from the new Watercolor Foil paper pad (it’s so freaking pretty!) and I picked a color that matched the horse’s mane. I think it works really well. I used one of the Stitched Rectangles 2 dies to cut out a window for the carousel. I used transparent sewing thread, stuck it in between the two images and wrapped it around the top and bottom of the card.

If you spin the image and close the card, the card is ready to go. Once the recipient opens the card, the little carousel will spin. If you’re curious to see it in action, visit my instagram page… I’ll have a short video showing it in action.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed today’s card.
