Christmas Fairy

Hello crafters!
 I have been hit with a dreaded bug, and I'd wanted to get this card up, but being sick has had me delay it. Feeling better today, so getting this written up.

I used the new poinsettia fairy from the new release from InkOn3. Such a cute image, totally unique! Fleurette has her own style I've not seen in other stamp companies. I played with my new Spectrum Noir alcohol markers to color this. And I struggled with good blending until a team member reminded me about using X-Press It paper for coloring with these type markers. I remembered I had some, got it out, and re-colored. And it went so much easier! If you haven't tried this paper, and struggle, maybe you'd like it. It's VERY bright white but it isn't real sturdy/thick. I'm ok with that if I get better coloring results.

Here's my beautiful fairy.

I stamped and colored her on a piece of X-Press It paper for alcohol marker coloring. I then went through my other stamp sets and chose a few more images. I stamped them out, colored them, and then fussy cut them out. I arranged them as if the fairy is reaching for the bells. I added them with some dimensional adhesive for added dimension since the fairy is flat on the paper.  I added some sparkle to the jingle bells and some Glossy Accents over top to really shine. I added reg Stickles to the berries and gold to the flower centers. Adds some nice sparkle! Then I chose a few sequins from my stash and scattered those around. I stamped the sentiment and cut with a die. It was also added with foam tape. 

I hope you like my pretty fairy and will head over to InkOn3 to shop for some goodies! Here's a shopping list for you.

Head on over to the store and pick up some fun new goodies to play with. Lots of great sets for any medium to color or paint. Get out you things and have some fun crafting!

Fairy Christmas Slider Cards by Ilda

Hello Everyone, Ilda here!

Now that Halloween has come and gone and there are inches of snow outside it's time to switch gears and think of Christmas πŸ˜€ Can't believe how this year has flown by!!!

So today I'm sharing my first two Christmas Cards of the year! These cards feature Ink On 3's Fairy Christmas set and part of the latest release! As soon as I saw the Fairy Stamp I knew I had to make a card where it looked like she was flying in the air. So literally that is what I did... she does fly (well kind of, on a sliderπŸ˜‰) I just can't help making interactive cards!

Here is a look at the first card and how the fairy looks at the bottom and the top position of the card. I wanted it to look like she was adding a star to the top of the tree.

and here is a closer look at this beautiful Blue Fairy!
(Yes, I also challenged myself to use non traditional Christmas colors and I'm really happy with the results) Isn't she beautiful!?!

To finish off the inside of the card, I simply stamped the Merry Christmas stamp from the same set. I'm really loving that font too!

And, here is my second card featuring the Pink Poinsettia Fairy! 

The Fairies were both colored using Spectrum Noir markers and finished with some sparkle using Wink of Stella. The backgrounds including the trees were done using Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors.

Make sure you watch my YT process video cause you won't believe how those trees were made! Also, see click HERE for a complete list of supplies used.

Here is a closer look at all the detail... check out the fussy cutting I did around the fairy 😲 Not hard to do with the right tools!

Sugar Skull Card

Today I am sharing a simple card I made.  I had some fun with this and made it a shaker card and added some fun zig-zag stitching to it using my sewing machine.  I used the stamp set from Ink On 3 called Sugar Skull.  The skull was inked and embossed with black embossing powder and very simply colored. I love the sequins and clear droplets in it and the pretty sparkly paper.  So girly!  :)

There are so many other cute stamps with this set and the coordinating FREE Digi Die Cuts make the stamping easy! 
I had some fun using a bunch of my different colored embossing powders!  This stamp doesn't necessarily have to be colored in, sometimes simple is good too!

Thanks for stopping by to take a look and make sure to check out all the other great stamps at Ink On 3!

Mariner Mermaid

Hey everyone, I have a quick card to share with you today using the super cute mermaid image from Fleurette's last release. I'm a little late with this but better late than never! Life got crazy for a bit, lol. 
Anyway, let's get to it.

I used a die from my stash, Stamps Of Life I believe, and cut it from some watercolor paper. I then stamped the mermaid on the largest piece and several of the other elements onto the smaller pieces. I then went about to color them.

I took the frame piece and smooshed VersaMark ink all over and embossed with silver embossing powder. I wanted it to look like metal. Instead of using acetate for my shaker window, I used tule. I've done this many times, as I find all my shaker bits stick so bad from static and I'm not a fan of that, lol! 

Plus, I like the texture it gives. I added all my shaker bits and adhered the frame to a white card base. I then took the other images I colored and glued them into the squares they came from. 

I stamped out the sentiment and embossed with silver embossing powder as well. I mounted it to a piece of white and then dimensional adhesive to the front of the card. 

I hope you got a bit of inspiration today. Keep watching as new things coming! Another release just came out and I'm working on projects using those products. Cool stuff. You won't wanna miss it!

Jellyfish Friends Card by Ilda

Hey All, Ilda here!

Today  I have a really quick and simple friendship card to share with you featuring  Ink On 3's Mariner Mermaid stamp set.

For this card I used my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors to create is beautiful water like background. Next I stamped out my Jellyfish on vellum and embossed them using gold powder. Then I fussy cut the images and attached them to the card front using some clear double sided glue pads. The rest of the card is pretty self explanatory and as you can see for an extra gold touch I added gold embossing powder along the edge to the blue layer of card stock.

Hope this simple card design has inspired you today.

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.

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!
