Happy Bird-day with Miss Ink Stamps

I'm back with some more embossing and watercolor with some beautiful images from Miss Ink Stamps.

I started by stamping and embossing the foliage and flowers onto some watercolor paper and smooshed on some Distress Oxides in blues and greens.  Then I colored the images further using my Zig markers and splattered over some turquoise and gold inks.

Next I stamped, cut and colored the birds and butterflies and colored them in with Copics and popped them up onto the background and added a sentiment and some sequins.

That's me for today!  I hope you enjoyed it and you'll come back again soon.

So Extra - Picket Fence Studios

Hello!  I was so excited to win some Picket Studios stuff after a recent release and was able to pick my winnings.  OF Course! I picked this You Are So Extra die because how fun is that and it's great fun to cut it from some of my favorite glitter papers.

I also picked out that gorgeous Brighter Days Gerbera Daisy stamp and die... I mean... 

You know I spent a little and got extra.... I used some of that gorgeous Luxe Paper Glaze for the first time and I LOVE it!

Check out this fabulous 1970's Coffee Cup! I'd buy that cup!  I was lucky to open up my quarterly Your Paper Insider box today and of course I was going to use the Rainbow Metallic Paper first!  and it was perfect along with the beautiful purple glitter.  I cut the cup once out of each, added foam tape to the back of the cup and then inserted the pieces from one into the other... with the tape already running across the back of the cup it was easy to just stick the pieces where they belonged.  Of course I lost ONE tiny piece... but I just took a scrap of the right color and taped it across the area of the cup it came from and cut a new one... easy peasy!

I mean... 😍... right??  I used the outline die and folded a white piece of cardstock in half and cut the cup outline with the handle hanging over the fold.  Also super easy!

I pulled these coffee sentiment stickers from my Stamplorations stash and added them to some lavender cardstock from a previous YPI box and added it to the front.

Huge thanks to Picket Fence for my awesome haul!  And OMG wait until you see the latest subscription box from Your Paper Insider... it is AWESOME!

Thanks for stopping... come again soon!

Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge #28 - Reminder

Welcome back!  It's time for a reminder over at the Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge!  I've got some more Sweet N Sassy stamps for you today!

I started by heat embossing that Candy Cane image from the Holiday Cheer stamp set in a random pattern onto a piece of watercolor paper.  Then I added some watercolor using Distress Oxide Inks in blue and I added a little gold shimmery ink.

I stamped one of the sentiments from the set onto a strip and added it across the front.

And finally, that adorable Winter Gnome having his cocoa... or coffee... either one!  Or both!

Now be sure to hop on over to the CCCC Blog for lots more inspiration and to play along for your chance to win a $25 store credit to the Sweet N Sassy shop!

Miss Ink Stamps-All I Need

I've got some more Miss Ink Stamps caffeinated goodness for you today!

I'm using those awesome floral caffeine molecules from the Caffeinated stamps and dies.  I stamped them in Wow Embossing Ink and embossed them in Gold.  Then I colored them in using Zig markers.

For the background, I blended some purples and blues onto a panel and then used the cool beans stencil to add some Glitz Glitter Gel.  I made the backround very subtle so as not to take away from those pretty delicate molecules.

I cut the frame from Oh Happy Day from glitter paper and popped it up over the background and then popped the molecules up and added a sentiment from the caffeinated set.

That's me for today!  Thanks so much for stopping and please do come again soon!
