Miss Ink Stamps Fierce Butterfly

Welcome back!  I've got an unexpected butterfly for you today!  I used three layered stamp sets for this one.

I started with the tiger and then masked him off and added the butterfly and then masking both, used the Flower Shower layering set.  I kept them masked and splattered over some paint and added Glitz Glitter Gel to the wings and Nuvo Drops to the flower centers.  I added the antennae separately masking each one so they'd fit because... well... I think they're my favorite part!

I'm in love with this one, and I think you may be seeing a couple more like this soon!

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

Therm O Web - Shaker Cards With Foil

I've got three shaker cards over on the Therm O Web Blog!

I used a simple shaker design for all three and had lots of fun with Adhesive Transfers, Transfer Gel and Deco Foil!

One of my favorite things is to use them with acetate.

I've got lots of details over on the TOW Blog.

Well, yeah... of course there's some coffee!

Crafty Elves Countdown to Christmas July 2023 Edition

Welcome back!  It's the 25th of the month and time for the Crafty Elves to share the Christmas Cards we made this month!

I've got two cards for you today using the new Rubbernecker Stamps Christmas Dogs stamp set!  I just love this set and had to use two more of the dogs for today.

These pups are adorable.  I colored them with pink and green so I made the background from the same colors using various dies from the Rubbenecker Stamps shop!

I added a Santa Hat to this pup and I'm playing along over at Double Trouble Challenge Blog's Christmas in July with a twist of Santa Hat!  And since I added a Santa Hat, I am also playing along over at their partner Jingle Belles!  You have a couple more days!

Now be sure to hop on over to see what Debra, Michael and Misti have made for you this month. And thank you to my teamie Michael who was so clever to include all of our links to our socials so I'm copying it here!

Glittery Candy Canes

I'm up on the blog over at A Jillian Vance Design using the new Candy Cane dies that will be available in August along with a coordinating stencil.

I just used the dies and cut my candy canes from some gorgeous glittery paper from the new Your Paper Insider Box!  That pretty strip is a Vicki Boutin paper that I picked up while cropping at my local scrapbook store, Scraps of Love.

Head on over to A Jillian Vance Design for the details!

You Inspire Me - New Magnolia Frame Dies

Hello!  How about this last Miss Ink Stamps release??  And you had to know I couldn't wait to create something with the new Magnolia Dies!  I've used the frame from the set a couple times already and it surely is my new fave!

And the floral??  I made two flowers and they are so easy to assemble!  And of course I foiled a lightly colored gel print to cut the pieces from!  You knew I would.

I used two of the frames .. one in pink and one in green.  There are touches of both in the flowers.  And added them all over a gel print that I created with acrylic paint and the Stained Glass Floral stencil.  Finally a sentiment from Blooming Brushes.

That's it for today!  Thanks so much for stopping and hope you'll come again soon!

Miss Ink Stamps - Kick Some Grass - Release Day!

So excited because today is Release Day and all of the new stamps and dies are in the shop!

I've used the new Kick Some Grass along with a few stencils from the shop!  As usual I fussy cut the pup out so I could pop him up!

Sorry for the swears, but this is one of my favorite sayings!  I used to have the meme taped up on my monitor at work.  It's just a really good reminder to not hang onto stuff that you don't need to.

Be sure to head on over to Instagram to see what the design team has created for you today and check out each Sneak Peek graphic from Wednesday, Thursday and Friday for your chances to win some of the new stuff!

Miss Ink Stamps July Release - Twister

Hello!   It's Day 2 of Sneaks for this release and I've used the new stamp set Twister!

This one is so much fun!  Quick and easy to color and you definitely don't need to cut it out, but I did so I could pop it up on that great background.

I also used that fantastic gel print.. foiled it and splattered some paint over the top and I think it makes a great background for this tornado!  And of course my new favorite frame...

Be sure to head on over to Instagram to see what everyone has created for today and how you could win!  Thanks so much for stopping.

Hello Sunshine - Your Paper Insider

Using the papers from the last couple Your Paper Insider boxes and that cool Lawn Fawn Hello Sunshine die along with flowers and the Sunburst stencil from Miss Ink Stamps!

That yellow glitter paper I cut the flowers from and inserted into the Sunshine word is from a previous box and the pretty brown glitter, yellow and orange are from the most recent.

Just a quick fun card!  It's almost time for a new box!  Totally worth it!
