Happy Halloween Birthday!

Hello there!  Today I am sharing a DT project with you for Ink On 3.  Do you know anyone with a Birthday on Halloween?  Combine the two with a card like this using Ink on 3's Go Batty stamp set

 The bats are stamped with a VersaMark stamp pad and then embossed with black embossing powder.  Make sure to use the Go Batty Digi makes things so much easier!  They are free with your stamp purchase!

The background paper is printed using the Go Batty Digi Paper Pack.  I used purple, orange and yellow ink to create the blended background.

I used the Halloween Card Kit and sized it down to fit the bat from the stamp set.  Foam pop dots add dimension to the bats.  To add some shimmer and fun, I used sequins and a glitter pen.

Have a great day and an even better day crafting!

Thinking of You Card by Ilda ft. Waterlily Stamp Set

Hello, Ilda here... and I'm back again today with another DT project for Ink On 3. 

Today's card features the Waterlily Stamp set from the new release.
For this card I wanted to use my watercolors, as the scene I wanted to create was on water and I wanted a fluid feel to it. To create the scene I had to do a bit of masking for each image. I used versamark to stamp and then embossed each image and heat set it with a white embossing powder. Once I was done that, I pulled out my Jane Davenport Bright palette and had fun coloring the waterlilies and the background in.

Thinking of You Card - Ink On 3's Waterlily Stamp Set

To create the vellum strip overlay, I first stamped the sentiment with versamark and then heat set it with the same white embossing powder. Next, I ran the vellum strip through the sizzix machine using the scalloped edge die along the bottom and used my paper trimmer on the top. I then wrapped the strip around the bottom half of the finished waterlily panel securing the ends to the back with adhesive. Before I attached the panel to the A2 sized card base, I sandwiched a piece of  craft foam in between to add a little height and dimension. Lastly, I added my clear drops to the sentiment strip.

Don't you just love the Thinking of You Sentiment!? I'm in love with that beautiful font 😍
Here's a close up of it.

Mariner Mermaid Card by Ilda

Hello friends, Ilda here again taking over Fleurette's Blog!

So have you ever seen a sexier mermaid stamp?! I sure haven't... Wowzers 😜

This beauty comes from Ink On 3's latest release! For this card, I didn't want to stamp the mermaid in black ink and I really didn't want to do a no line watercoloring. So I thought I would experiment by stamping the image out using frayed burlap oxide ink and I love the results. The stamped line once it came in contact with the watercolors oxidized and lightened the lines giving it a semi no line watercolor look. 

To color the mermaid in, I used my Tombow Dual brush markers. Once she was dry I then fussy cut the entire image out. This is a fairly large stamp so it wasn't as difficult as it looks but I did need the help of my retractable PenBlade.

To create the background I wet the paper and then lightly touched the wet areas with Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers. These colors are so vibrant a little goes a long way. Just before the area dried I then used my distress spray bottle to splash and spread the ink around. I repeated that a few times with different colors, using by heat tool to help speed up the drying process. Once the entire background was done and dry I sprayed the background again this time picking up the droplets with paper towel.

To finish the card I then attached some jewelry chain to the anchor and used a metal wire to secure it to the top of the card panel, bending and taping the wire to the back to secure it in place. I then attached it to the A2 sized cardbase. I did not glue the mermaid down as I wanted her to swing freely on the front of the card. (see previous image)

Here is a closer look at the details 😍

Hope you were inspired by this Mariner Mermaid Card today.

A Pumpkin Boo Shaker Card ~ Clear Stamps

Hello Everyone, 
Ilda here from the Ink on 3 DT!!!
Can you believe Halloween is less than a month away!?  
Where has this year gone😲

Today I have a fun Halloween Shaker card to share with you featuring a few stamps sets from Inkon3, formerly know as FB Stamps. Click here for links to supplies used.

To create this little scene I began by stamping and masking my pumpkins, on the smaller pumpkins I actually masked off their entire face as I just wanted the larger one to be in the spotlight. I then colored the images in using spectrum Noir markers and then fussy cut the entire image cluster.

Next I went to work on my background. To create the moon, I cut out a circle from masking paper using a circle die. Then I used the negative of  the circle cut out to mask the panel. I blended out the moon first and then masked it off once it was dry. Then I removed the negative piece and blended out the rest of the background. Once I was done, I sprayed it with water and used a paper towel to soak up the droplets leaving behind the illusion of a starry night sky. Then I stamped a few fly away bats to the background.

To finish the card I created the top panel using a Studio Katia die, then added acetate behind it to create the top of the shaker sandwich. Next, I added foam tape behind the border and added sequins. Finally I added my pumpkins to the card front and made  the little Boo tag that I attached to the top center of the card.

Doesn't it look like the pumpkin is really scared when the shaker card is in motion?

I kept the inside quite simple with just the Happy Halloween sentiment.

Hope this Pumpkin Boo Shaker card inspired you today, or at least got you thinking of Halloween fun.

Lots of Love...

Hello friends! Cheryl here today, with a card using one of the newest stamp sets just released.
I LOVE THIS STAMP SET!!! And I hope you do too. So here's my card.

I love lilacs for one thing, and for great is this image?! So I got out my Tombow Markers and set out to coloring this pretty flower. I stamped the image on watercolor paper and embossed with black embossing powder. I stamped and embossed the vase on velum. I then sent it to my Brother Scan n Cut and it cut it out just perfectly. I even did it after it was all colored and it didn't make one mistake! I love this machine that much that I dare to do that, lol. I did two of them and then arranged them as I liked on the A2 sized card base. 

I used a piece of paper from Lawn Fawn's Watercolor Wishes paper pad, one of my favorites!!! Great watercolor papers with no fuss, lol! I stamped and embossed the sentiment in black and scattered around a few sequins. I got out my Viva Decor pearls and dotted around a few pearls and set aside to dry. I then added the entire piece to a heavy weight cardstock base. And that was it!

So, where do you get this set? You get it here. Check it out, and so many more awesome things!

Here's what I used.

So, get your craft on and make something pretty of your own. And check out the store for some really great crafting supplies. Thanks for coming by!

Lilac Birthday Wishes - Fold Flat Vase DIY Card

Ilda here, and I'm back again today with some more inspiration for Fleurette Blooms latest release. 
This time I am featuring the Lilac Dreams Stamp set😍

This stamp set is gorgeous! 
So elegant and perfect for so many different occasions.
I decided I wanted to create something unique with this Lilac set. I wanted my card to look like an actual vase filled with Lilacs would.

Lilac Birthday Wishes - Fold Flat Vase DIY Card

I colored my images in using my Tombow Dual Brush Markers and then cut them out with my SnC2. Don't worry you don't need a SnC machine, Fleurette always has FREE Coordinating Digital Dies available for download with your stamp purchase.

Here is what the back of my card looks like.

I have included some pictures below to help you visualize my steps.
I also have links to all my supplies over on my →blog.

 To begin I cut out 2, 2 3/4 inch circles using a Circle Die. I then sliced 1/2 inch of the bottom.
Next, I cut out the box portion of the card to measure 5 1/2 x 2 3/4 inches. Then I scored the paper at the 1/2 inch or 2 inch mark (see image).

I then assembled the box by gluing the side tab down. Once it was dry I then glued it to one of the cut circles (make sure you line up the bottom and center it on the panel).

To create the faux water look. I cut out another circle in pale blue card stock  and trimmed it like the previous ones. I then fused a plastic sleeve together in the shape of the vase to create a pocket.

Next I filled up the pocket with a few sequins for some shine and slipped the lilacs in the top opening of the pocket and glued it in place (I only glued the back of the lilacs as I didn't want any glue to show in the front. Because the paper is blocking the sequins from coming up the pocket they didn't spill out). Next I glued the other lilac bunches to the back of the blue card stock.

I then added the pocket layer to the top of my blue layer, but only gluing down the areas where the bottom of my bunch was, as I didn't want any adhesive to show. (Not shown here, but I also added a piece of vellum to the bottom half of the vase. Then I added glue only in the center where it will be hidden by the sequins). Here is what it looks like from the back all glued together.

Next I stamped my sentiment on the back panel and glued it the front panel (make sure you line up the bottom and the sides of the box when gluing it together).

Here is the finished card folded flat, which fit perfectly in a 5x7 envelope.

For a limited time you can get FREE Shipping
when you purchase the Lilacs & Kitties Bundle Pack!

Hope you were inspired by my Lilac Birthday Wishes - Fold Flat Vase DIY Card. I love when you can use the supplies you have to create something totally unique! Make sure you come back soon for more DT inspiration!

Happy PURRday Interactive Spin Card

Hello my friends Ilda here today on FB Stamps Blog!

Today I have a very cute and super fun card to share with you featuring the new Purr-ific Kitty Cat Stamp Set from FB Stamps.

The Kitty in the center spins all around the card so I thought it would be fun to add the googly eyes to make it look dizzy when you spin it.  Make sure you follow me on Instagram (I'll be posting this card in action for you all to see there πŸ‘€)

Happy PURRday Interactive Spin Card

I didn't have time to shoot and edit a video this time (sorry guys, I know its been a while since my last YT video). If you are wondering about all the products I used today check out the links over on my → Blog. Hopefully these pictures will help explain my process.

I first cut out then colored my kitty using my Zig Markers. Next I glued it on to a piece of paper that I had cut out in the shape of a drop. You will notice I punched a hole in the center of the drop. On the left side of the picture, I have my die cut top panel which randomly I stamped with the ball of yarn using  Peacock Feathers distress ink.

To create my ball of yarn, I wrapped twine around a die cut circle. I then inserted a brad in the center of the back of the ball. 

Next I punched a hole where I wanted the Kitty to sit on the front panel of the card. Then I hot glued the Kitty to the back of the ball.

To finish off the card I slipped the brad through center hole on the panel and bent up the arms (make sure you don't squeeze the arms flat against the card stock or it may not spin easily). Then I added some foam tape to the back of the panel to pop it up and allow for the Kitty to spin.

Here is how I finished the inside.
Love that little fish skull ♡

Rosie Posies

Hello, Crafty Friends!!
 I have another project for you all today! This time I have this lovely rosie posie card using...

Fleurette Blooms' Posies stamp set.

Image result for fleurette bloom designs posies

I stamped my image onto mixed media paper with black archival ink and colored with distress markers then blended out with a water brush.

Once completely dried, I cut each flower out by hand.

I die cut leaves from old music sheets. Then shaded them with Distress Inks and added details with Distress Markers.

I die cut a honeycomb out of chipboard using honeycomb die. I mixed white gesso, microbeads, and texture powder together and applied over the entire honeycomb. 

I allowed the mixture to completely dry then colored with distress stain then dry brushed acrylic paint.

Using my Xyron Creative Station Lite, I attached a 4.25"x 5.5" piece of burlap onto a standard A2 sized card made from cream colored cardstock. Then layered a 4"x 5.25" mat on top.

I used a bit of glossy accents as a glue and attached to my card front. The laid down my leaves before attaching my posies over top with more glossy accents.

To fish my card, I die cut the word hello from brown cardstock and attached at the bottom of the card.

And here is my finished card..

Such a simple yet beautiful card.

I hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial for today!

Until next time...
Happy Crafting!!
