Let’s Pour Some Holiday Cheer with Miss Ink Stamps

Hello Miss Ink fans!  I am sharing yet another holiday-themed card today showcasing the Blitzened Stamp Set with the Ins & Outs Bohemian Stencil Set. As soon as I saw this stamp set, I knew I just had to have it!

Here’s how I made the card:

  • Temporarily adhere stencil # 1 to an A2-size panel of Bristol Smooth white card stock using some Pixie Spray.
  • Ink-blend the panel with Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink. Remove the stencil.
  • Place Stencil #2 and use Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Ink for the outline.
  • Stamp the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and color them in with alcohol markers.
  • Fussy-cut the images or use an electronic cutting machine to cut them out. I used my Scan N Cut Machine to cut the images that I colored.
  • Adhere the focal image on the card panel with foam adhesive for added dimension.
  • Adhere some star die-cuts to the card and use white gel pen to add some dots and stars to the panel for added interest and texture.  [Designer’s tip: These tiny details really help to make a cute card.]
  • Finish the card design by stamping the sentiment with VersaFine Claire in Nocturne.

I hope you like my holiday-themed card today and got inspired.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Thank you for stopping by!

We Otter Be Friends with CC Designs

I have been making a lot of holiday-themed cards lately and I wanted to take a break from that. Luckily, I have this Otters Stamp Set and coordinating dies by CC Designs that I can play with. I always like having just-because cards in my stash to send to family and friends.

Here’s how I made it:

  • Cover an A2-size watercolor panel with Pink, Yellow and orange watercolors. Let this dry for about half an hour.
  • Temporarily adhere the stencil to the background panel with Pixie Spray. Use the stencil and palette knife to spread texture paste for added interest. Let this dry for half an hour and adhere on an A2-size notecard.
  • Stamp the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and color the images in with alcohol markers.
  • Die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.
  • Adhere the focal images on the card.
  • Stamp the sentiment on some black card stock with Versamark ink and speinkle some white embossing powder. Use heating tool to heat-set the sentiment.
  • Adhere the sentiment on the card with liquid glue.
  • Finish the design by adding some stars.

This is honestly one of the quickest cards I’ve ever made! I hope I have given you some inspiration today. The supplies I used are listed and linked below. Thanks for stopping by!

NND NOVEMBER Release Day 3 – SNOW ANGEL NEWTON + SNOW ANGEL PUPPY + ROLL WITH IT

It’s the last day of the reveals by Newton’s Nook Designs and we are featuring three products today. If you haven’t hopped along with us yet, now is a great time to catch up. You have a chance to win the stamp set being revealed each day so please read through ’til the end of the blog post to find out more info.  [Just a little important note:  I know some of you had difficulties finding the comments section.  If you would like to leave a comment to participate in the giveaway, the “comments section” will only be ever visible when a single post on WordPress is being viewed. Please click on this particular blog post and you will be able to leave a comment below.  Thank you!]  

For Day 3, we are showcasing the Snow Angel Newton Stamp Set and Dies, Snow Angel Puppy Stamp Set and dies and the Roll With It Stamp Set.

The first and second card samples are completely the same design. I started by stamping both images from the Snow Angel Newton and Snow Angel Puppy on some Neenah Solar white Card Stock. I colored the images in with alcohol markers and die-cut using the coordinating die. I did use my precision snips to cut out the “wings”.

Next, I ink-blended two panels (measuring 4 x 5 1/4) of Bristol Smooth white card stock with Salvaged Patina (for the blue card) and Kitsch Flamingo (for the pink card. I stamped the images on both panels with Versamark ink and embossed the image with white embossing powder and heat-set with my heating tool. I used the coordinating die and die-cut some masking paper to mask off the images. Since I was planning to add texture paste to the ink-blended backgrounds, I didn’t want the image covered with paste.

I used the Petite Snow stencil and texture paste for added texture to the background. Using Therm-O-Web’s Stencil Pal made it easier to spread the paste evenly on both panels. I removed the mask and set both card panels aside to let it dry for half an hour.

I adhered the colored images on the card with liquid glue. I also stamped the sentiment on black card stock with Versamark ink and heat-set with the heating tool, then adhered on the panel with liquid glue.

Lastly, I added the black & white stripes pattern paper on two A2-size notecards, then added the focal panel with liquid glue.

For my next card, I repeated the same steps above for stamping and die-cutting using the images from Snow Much Cheer.

For my card layout, I used the Slimline Frames and Porthole Die Set to die-cut the scallop on some Neenah Solar White Card Stock. I ink-blended this panel using the Slimline Masking Square Stencil and Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide ink.

I foam-mounted the focal panel on some Red Slimline card base measuring 8 1/2 by 3 1/2. I adhered the images on the card and stamped the sentiment in t he middle square with Memento Tuxedo black ink. I colored the letters and the snowman’s head with alcohol markers.

I finished my card design by adding some glittered stars. I love how this card turned out!

So there you have it folks! If you hopped along with us throughout this week, I’d LOVE to hear what your favorites are! I hope you have been inspired by the design team all week long! The products will be available tomorrow so grab your favorites first thing before they sell out!

Next, I used the new Bookmark Die Set to die-cut some Bristol Smooth white card stock. I ink-blended this panel with Twisted Citron and Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide inks. I also used some White Copic paint to splatter some white paint on the bookmark for added interest.

I adhered the colored images on the bookmark and added glossy accents to the eyeglasses for added texture. I set this aside to let it dry for about half an hour and worked on adding a sentiment to the bookmark. I stamped the sentiment on some black card stock and with Versamark ink and sprinkled some white embossing powder to this. I heat-set the powder with my heating tool and adhered the sentiment onto the bookmark.

I finished the bookmark by adhering some gold stars. I also added some blue ribbon with white & gold twine and for a little bit of a festive and fun touch, I added the gold jingle bells!

Let’s Cozy Up with a Cuppa with LDRS Creative

The 2021 Fall/Winter Coffee Lover’s Blog hop is here and I have another card to share with you. I feel that LDRS Creative should have a presence in this hop.

For my card today, I am showcasing the Cozy Cuppa stamp set and coordinating dies, Doodle Border 4×6 stamp set along with the Offset Slimline Stack-ables Die Set that is part of the Pastry Pals Craft Kit and the Happy Fall 6×6 Paper Pad.

Here’s how I made this card:

  • Adhere the two border edge die-cuts to the card base with tape runner.

NND NOVEMBER Release Day 1 – TIME FOR COFFEE + coffee house stories paper pad

Hello and Welcome to the Newton’s Nook November Release. I am so excited to show off the new products by Newton’s Nook Designs.  You also have a chance to win the stamp set being revealed each day so please read through til the end of the blog post to find out more info.  [Just a little important note:  I know some of you had difficulties finding the comments section.  If you would like to leave a comment to participate in the giveaway, the “comments section” will only be ever visible when a single post on Word Press is being viewed. Please click on this particular blog post and you will be able to leave a comment below.  Thank you!]  

For the first day of the reveals, we are showcasing the Time For Coffee Stamp Set + Coordinating Dies with the Coffee House Stories 6×6 Paper Pad!

For my first project, I started by stamping the images from the Time for Coffee Stamp Set on some Espresso Car Stock with Versamark ink. I sprinkled some white embossing powder to this and used my heating tool to heat-set the images.

Next, I die-cut a circle scallop using a die from my collection on some Light Blue Card Stock. I also die-cut another circle on Neenah solar white which I ink-blended using Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Ink. I adhered both pieces with liquid glue.

I stamped the image from the Newton Loves Coffee Stamp Set and colored the images in with Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers. I used the coordinating die to die-cut the image and adhered this image on the ink-blended circle panel.

Next, I cut abut 1 1/4 inches of patterned paper from the Coffee House Stories Paper pad and adhered a scalloped decorative edge on both sides for added texture and interest. I adhered this on the dark brown panel that was previously heat-embossed and added on an A2-size notecard.

I finished the design by foam-mounting my focal panel on t he card for added dimension, and stamped the sentiment using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. This is my go-to ink for stamping sentiments on white card stock.

The next project is really simple. To create the tag, I used the Fancy Edges Tag Die-set and die-cut some patterned paper from the Coffee House Stories 6×6 paper pad. I also used the same die on Espresso and Mint Green Card Stock. I adhered them all together to create the beautiful tags. This is honestly one of my favorite tag die-set ever!

Next, I stamped the images from Newton Loves Coffee Stamp Set and colored the images in with my alcohol markers. I used the coordinating die to cut them out and foam-mounted to the tags for added dimension.

I finished the tags by adding the sentiment and the holly with a matching red ribbon and gold twine for that festive touch. Here’s a closer look:

Holiday Card Featuring Newton’s Stocking by Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello my crafty friends! Thanks for stopping by the blog today and I am also glad to be featured on the Newton’s Nook Blog. Today, I am sharing this simple holiday card, showcasing the Newton’s Stocking stamp set and coordinating dies, along with the Meowy Christmas Paper Pad, Argyle Stencil Set and the Pines and Holly Die Set.

I love the simplicity of this card, especially having this white Argyle pattern image on some kraft card stock. Here’s how I made the card:

  • Remove the Argyle Stencil #1 and use Heating Tool to heat-set the ink so that it doesn’t smear on your kraft card stock.
  • Place Argyle Stencil #2 and secure it with magnets again.
  • Using a palette knife and Ranger White Texture Paste, apply the paste evenly on the kraft panel. Leave this panel to dry for about half an hour.
  • Stamp the images and use coordinating die to cut them out.
  • Stamp the same image on the Meowy Christmas Paper and fussy-cut using precision snips. Adhere the same on the image using liquid glue.
  • Die-cut the white band using a die from my collection. Foam-mount the white band on the kraft panel for added dimension.
  • Adhere the background panel on an A-2 size notecard.
  • Add the focal images using tape runner.
  • Die-cut the holly leaves on some Glittered Card Stock using the Pines & Holly Die Set and adhere with liquid glue.
  • Add some Ruby Red Rhinestone Jewels on the card with liquid glue.
  • Finish the design by adding Stardust Stickles to the image.

The argyle pattern on this kraft card stock really stood out but it didn’t overwhelm the design, don’t you think?! I really LOVE how this turned out and I hope you feel the same! The supplies I used are listed and linked below. Thanks for stopping by and have an amazing day!
