I wanted to try out my new Waffle Flower Pattern Play stamp along with my Misti. I used a variety of pigment, chalk and dye inks and this is the final result.

I stamped onto a separate panel of cardstock and adhered it to the card base with my Thermoweb Memory Tape Runner. For my sentiment, I used the Winnie & Walter Big, Bold and Happy stamp set to emboss the greeting in Ranger Embossing Powder – Liquid Powder. I found some blue enamel dots [embellishments] at the Dollar Tree. I glued them down with Tombow Mono Multi Glue.

Video+Giveaway: Virginia’s View Challenge – Valentine’s Day Card

I LOVE THIS CARD!

Mayholic in Crafts

f

Hello, crafty friends! Today I’m so excited to share a Valentine’s Day card that I made for the Virginia’s View challenge as a guest designer this month. For this challenge, no matter how much glitter is on your project, a pinch, a few sprinkles or full-on glitter…we want to see them all!

I started by blending three shades of pink on a white cardstock using blending tools and Altenew Crisp Inks: Frosty Pink, Cotton Candy, and Coral Berry. Then I created subtle stamped background by stamping the outline images from the Beautiful Day stamp set. After that, I added gold glitter strips on both side of my card using some extra fine gold glitter and 5 mm Scor-Tape.

To create my own glitter heart, I covered a piece of white cardstock with Scor-Tape and die cut a heart using the retired heart die from Stamping’ UP. Then I sprinkled some…

#LAWNFAWN Pizza My Heart stamp set

pizzamyheart

I was super excited to receive the new Lawn Fawn Pizza my heart stamp set in the mail yesterday.

I had some major inspiration from Kristina Werner. I wanted to try creating a small stack of pizza boxes (with masking) and a sentiment – something somewhat simple and straightforward.

  • I used my Target watercolor pad to stamp several pizza boxes with a post-it as my masking paper.
  • I used my Tombow dual brush set in Groovy to color in the boxes – trying my hand at blending out the brown with the blending pen.
  • I stamped a few hearts with Tsukineko Memento Dew Drop Chalk ink in Lady Bug.
  • I had to break out the post-its again for stamping the sentiment because I wanted the word slice to be in red (combination of Hero Arts shadow ink royal red and Tsukineko Memento Dew Drop Chalk ink in Lady Bug).
  • I made a card base with some Recollections Heavy Weight 110lb cardstock. I adhered a piece of green pattern paper with my Tombow Stamp runner and then attached that card panel to the base.
  • I had some smudges so I broke out the green sequins, used some Glossy Accents on the hearts & I was done.

TOMBOW BRAND AMBASSADOR 2016 – dual brush pen watercolors

20160116_120310

 

So I am officially a 2016 Tombow Brand Ambassador!

Tombow_Brand-Ambassador-Badge

Part of my 2016 Craft resolutions was to try new techniques that I would initially shy away from. Cue watercoloring! I picked up a set of Tombow dual brush pens Craft Collection in the color set Groovy.

groovy

I picked up a watercolor paper pad from Target and decided to try a Emboss then color technique. I used my JustRite Choose Joy stamp set to stamp a sentiment and embossed with Ranger super fine detail white powder. I literally scribbled a red, orange and yellow marker across the sentiment and used a Ranger mini misting bottle to squirt water all over the image.  All of the colors began to move and the results were AWESOME.

I used a Sizzix circle framelit to cut out the sentiment and a card base, adhered it onto the pink card base and I..AM..DONE! I am super excited to try more watercolor techniques with these markers. I think the next will be creating a card panel with an embossing folder and coloring it. Wish me luck!

I LOVE COFFEE- CARD (Taylored Expressions)

coffee card

 

I discovered a new stamp store and I took crazy advantage since she was having a 25% off sale. I must say that Vanessa (Butterfly Reflections Ink) has an awesome turn around. Her processing was fast and she used Priority Mail – UPS Surepost and Fedex SmartPost make my stomach hurt.

Anywho!

I used a Heidi Swap set of printed papers  to die cut the coffee cup from the Taylored Expressions Joe to go Stamp/Die set. I used my Lawn Fawn large rectangle die set to cut out a piece of purple Recollections cardstock (65lb). I also die cut the other coffee cup pieces plus a rectangle for my sentiment from the same Recollections cardstock stack. Pretty straight forward prep and now all I have to do is assemble the card.

I used Versafine onyx black ink to stamp the smoke plume and coffee bean. I then used my Ranger Ink blue ribbon dye ink pad to stamp the sentiment. I adhered the elements and the card panel to the base and used my Tombow Mono Multi glue to glue down my sequins AND BOOM. Done.
