Alcohol Ink Birthday Card using SSS Tropical Leaves stamp set

Happy Tuesday! 

Today I have a card that I made for my Fathers birthday that was yesterday. 
He always encourages me to try new things and alcohol inks was one of them.

I of course had to make his card from one of the backgrounds I made.
He loves Green so I used Lettuce and Citrus Ranger Alcohol inks for the below background. 

My dad also loves Hawaii so I used the Simon Says Stamp 
 Tropical Leaves stamp set to stamp the leaves and heat emboss with Ranger Silver embossing powder. 

The You is from the Simon Says Stamp You Matter set and the Happy Birthday to is from the MFT All About You stamp set. I again heat embossed with that silver embossing powder onto Recollections dark gray card stock.

Thank you so much for coming by and I hope to see you next time!

A2 X-Card Birthday Present using Concord and 9th Sprinkles Turnabout stamp set

This was a fun Birthday card I made for my Uncle.
I got my new Silhouette Cameo and just had to make something.

I made the background using the Concord and 9th Sprinkles Turnabout stamp set. I used the cupcakes and other stamps to just stamp all over a 81/2 x 11 piece of yardstick using Distress Oxide Inks. I used Wild Honey, Salty Ocean, Candied Apple, Wilted Violet and Lucky Clover.

I cut it out using a Lori Whitlock A2 X-Card Birthday Present design.
I colored the present with the Distress Oxide inks and attached using some red twine.

It came out so cute and fun!

Thank you for stopping by and till later..Have a great day!

Birthday Card using Alcohol Ink and SSS Cora Background


This is a card I made for a close friend of mine. 
She loves Rose Gold so of course I had to try to make a card with those cards. 

I used Pink Sherbet and Pearl Alcohol Inks for the background and then heat embossed the SSS Cora background in Ranger Princess Gold embossing powder.

I used the MFT Blueprints 13 Die-namics  stitched rectangle die and put onto a white note card. 

I used a sentiment from the Silhouette Design store. I first gold embossed some white card stock and then cut out on the machine. 

I added some Wink of Stella onto the white of the notecard and the "shadow" of the sentiment. 

I hope to see you next time and till then, 
Have a great day!

Christmas Card using Avery Elle Retro Ornaments


I have one last Christmas card for yo. I really wanted to use the Avery Elle Retro Ornaments Stamp set and the SSS Christmas Sweater Background. I figured why not combine the two. 

I first stamped the sweater background in Versamark onto some Bristol smooth card stock.
I then ink blended it with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. 

The ornaments and lights were stamped in Versafine and colored with Distress Inks in Victorian Velvet, Scattered Straw and Tumbled Glass. 

The branches were stamped with Lucky Clover Distress Oxide. I cut them all out with the coordinating dies. 

I used a SSS circle die and heat embossed the sentiment with Ranger Princess Gold embossing powder. I used the same embossing powder and dies to create the "strings" that attach the ornaments to the trees. 

I used some foam tape to pop the whole panel onto a white notecard. I then used a Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen onto the sentiment circle, inside of the ornaments and the lights. I also put some on that border showing on the notecard. 

Thank you for stopping by for all these Christmas cards and 
I hope to see you in the new year!

Embossed Christmas Cards using Avery Elle Warm Wishes stamp set

Welcome Back!

I have another couple of cards I made using the adorable Avery Elle Warm Wishes stamp set. 

I used Versafine Black Onyx ink and Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers for the main images.

The background is made by embossing two different sizes of the MFT Scalloped Die-namics using a Spellbinders embossing mat.
I just love how it gave a subtle texture and interest to the background without taking away from the jars.

I matted it all onto some red yardstick from my stash. 

Have a great rest of your day and see you next time!

Christmas Cards using SSS Milk and Cookies Card Kit

Hey Guys!

I have a couple of cards I made using the SSS Milk and Cookies card kit. 

It is such a cute kit and so many ways to use it. 

This one was made by stamping in versa mark the gingerbread men onto some gray yardstick and heat embossed with Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder. I colored in with the Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors.  The sentiment is from the MFT Handwritten Holiday stamp set and heat embossed with the same embossing powder.

This one is heat embossed with Ranger watering can embossing powder onto a lighter gray card stock. I used the same watercolors for the images. I used the MFT Merry Christmas Greeting stamp to heat emboss onto some vellum and hand cut a shadow around it.

Thank you again for checking these out!
I hope to see you later!

Christmas Card using Sunny Studios Holiday Style stamp set

Last year when I was thinking about jumping into the world of stamping, I saw this Sunny Studios Holiday Style stamp set and was amazed at that bell. I thought just crazy how three different colors could create such a lifelike image. 

I am still lacking on inks so I used the Memento London Fog for the first two layers. Stamped once on the first then twice on second to make darker.

The pine was made using Memento Cottage Ivy in the same kind of way.
The sentiment is from the same stamp set and I heat embossed with some red embossing powder.

I die cut using the MFT Wonky stitched rectangle Die-namics and popped onto some plaid pattern paper from my stash. 

I of course had to use the ornaments for the inside. Im bad and forgot to write down the colors I used for the ornaments. My bad.

See you next time!
