Stencil Week at Miss Ink Stamps With Perfect Plaid!


Hey there!  It's Stencil Week over at Miss Ink Stamps and we've got some fabulous new stencils for you and a chance to win some!


I used two of the new stencils for this one... 'cause why not??  I started by blending some distress oxides from Squeezed Lemonade (bottom right) to Spiced Marmalade (top left) across a panel through the Perfectly Plaid stencil.  Then I removed the stencil and blended more Squeezed Lemonade over the yellow plaid... you could still see the lines but a little less contrast.  I laid the Fall Mandala Stencil over the yellow and blended some of the Spiced Marmalade and Rusty Hinge over it.  Finally I splattered a few drops over water over the top and soaked up the extra with a towel.


Loved it so much I didn't want to cover it up!  So I opted for Hey There using the Ei-Ei-O Word Dies and a little sentiment strip from the Decaf Background stamp set to finish it off.. well... of course a few of my favorite sequins from Trinity.

That's me for today!   Be sure to check out the new Miss Ink's Pad Facebook Group here and request to join (be sure to answer the questions!)  And you'll find there a chance to win some of the new stencils (your choice!).  And then head over to the Miss Ink Stamps IG account here and find the Stencil Release Graphic to see how you can win there!

Blessed to Have You - Rubbernecker Stamps


I am so very thankful to have you all.  I appreciate how you've stuck with me over the years and especially these last couple as we've all been struggling.  Just felt the need to say that.

I created a very fun interactive card using one of the fabulous card kits in the shop by The Paper Cut!  It's a Z Fold Box Card and you'll find details about how I created it (using almost all Gel Press prints!) in this post here!



I spent a lot of my life in Western New York and while here in AZ you can drive up north and catch some colorful foliage in the Fall... it's nothing like the spectacle back in WNY that happens for about a two week period each fall... it's beautiful for a lot of the season, but for that week or two window it is truly amazing... and that's not hyperbole.


Hope you'll join me up on the Rubbernecker Blog for all of the details!

Thanks so much for stopping and I hope you'll come again soon!

 

 Below are links to all of the Rubbernecker products I used for this one!  Should you choose to purchase using these links I will receive a small compensation at no additional cost to you.  And thank you!

Happy Meowlloween!


Welcome back!  I've got some more Halloween fun using the Feline Spooky stamp set and another background I created when I made yesterday's using the Halloween Mandala!


For this one I used the watercolor panel that I used to soak up some of the color burst color before I got the transfer for yesterday's.  Only a small amount of the Halloween Mandala stencil detail showed so I layered the stencil back over this panel and distressed with some orange ink.  Then I heat embossed the larger image from Feline Spooky in white and splattered on some acrylic paint.  I stamped, cut and colored the individual cat from the set and popped it up onto the front along with a cute and punny sentiment!


That's it!  Easy peasy!

Thanks so much for stopping!  Hope you enjoyed it and you'll come back again soon!

Where The Bones Are Buried - Miss Ink Stamps


Well, you know I love the Slim's Whims stamp set from Miss Ink Stamps!!  I mean, my fur baby Slim was the inspiration!  I had so much fun creating this one using that one plus Oh Nuts and that AWESOME new Bone Chevron stencil available in the shop!


This was an easy one... just stamped, cut and colored the images and then used some Glossy Black Embossing Paste from Dreamweaver through the stencil.


Thanks so much for stopping!!  Hope you were inspired and you'll come again soon!

National Coffee Day Hop-Miss Ink Big Mugs


Hello!  Welcome back!  Have you hopped the National Coffee Day Hop yet??  You still have a few days and I have some inspiration for you!


Miss Ink Stamps is a sponsor for the NCD hop!  Miss Ink has lots of coffee and tea themed stamp sets, but I'm of the belief that any stamp set can be a coffee stamp set!  So I used the dinosaurs from Unstoppable for this one along with cups from Brewtiful and Just Be-Caws and the Big Mugs sentiment!  I mean... that's a big mug!!


I'd say it might be big enough!  Dinosaurs didn't drink coffee you say?  Well, see how that turned out for them???  They're extinct!


I used a gel print that I created with the Random Dots stencil for the background.


Thanks so much for stopping!  Now be sure if you haven't already to head over to the Coffee Loving Cardmakers National Coffee Day Hop post here and start hopping and commenting for your chances to win lots of great products!  ALSO!  Today is International Coffee Day and you'll find another mini hop and more chances to win!  You'll find that post here!  And Happy Day and Good Luck!

National Coffee Day With AJVD - A Cozy Cup Shaker


This is my second card for National Coffee Day!  A Jillian Vance Design is a Sponsor!  Today I'm sharing a shaker I made using the fabulous Cozy Cup die set!


I used the cup die and lined it up when cutting out a panel of Gel Printed paper using one of the Mini Slimline die.  I cut a base panel and adhered a piece of alcohol inked paper made using some EVO Paper and some browns, tans and gold alcohol inks.  I also cut a heart from the same panel.


I added some sequins and popped the panel up over it.  Finally a sentiment from Brewed to Perfection and added the heart and I was done!


Now be sure to head on over to the Coffee Loving Cardmaker's Blog so you can keep on hopping for your chances to win some free stuff!

And don't forget there's a sale going on over at AJVD until tomorrow (September 30th)!
