Ink Cube Technique

Hello Stamping Friends!!

I'm on the Dare 2B Artzy Blog today!!

I don't know about you, but I love tiny little ink cubes! 
D2BA offers their ink in cute little ink cubes!!

I decided to feature one of the sets today with a fun tutorial!

I started by collecting my supplies:
 Cardstock
Ink (Tropical Cube Pack and Totally Black)


Using a cardstock layer, start by picking out the first color you are going to use, and stamp it on the cardstock as if it was your stamp. (You can trim this piece up later to the size you wish)
 Continue till you are happy with your results.

I decided to do each color twice.

Then I stamped the balloons from the Birthday Balloons stamp set!
As well as stamping the pattern inside the balloons, on the above picture you can see I also used a black marker to fill in parts of the design, so that it would stand out more!

Such a super fun and easy technique!!

Here is my finished card:
Fun and different!!

I added the "Happy Birthday" sentiment from the Bright Birthday stamp set!
As well as the fun polka dot border!  I love that accent stamp!  Add the perfect touch to this card!

Have a beautiful day!

Live Life in Full Bloom with IBS

Good Morning Stamping Friends!!

I am on the Inspired By Stamping Blog today, featuring a fun Just because type of card!!

Recently on a shopping trip to a local craft store I had a little time to waste, so I ended up walking through more isles than I usually do and ended up finding these fun daubers.
Like many people your remind starts racing with ideas!

So I payed around with them a little bit over this last weekend!

I decided to use the new Magnolias stamp set!  I first stamped one of the floral image.

Instead of coloring the images in with my Copics like I would usually do, I decided to use the daubers to add Distress ink to my image.
Kind of reminds me of a watercolor look.
I personally really like it!!

My finished card:

I really like how the flowers turned out!

These daubers are going to be used a lot I have a feeling!!
May need to even get some more!!

The Magnolia image is so beautiful!
The "Live Life in Full Bloom" sentiment is also from the Magnolias stamp set!

First Lost Tooth with HBS

Hello Stamping Friends!


It's my day once again to post on the Honey Bee Stamps Blog!!

I have a project life page to share with you today!!

I was excited for the new Hand Lettered Numeric stamp set!  I instantly thought of the pictures of when my daughter lost her first tooth!!
So I used the set to stamp the 1st!

And then used Hand Lettered Alpha to create the "LOST tooth" sentiment and add the arrows!!

I used the Camera Love stamp set to stamp the "captured" sentiment on the pink tag to the image of my daughter with the "tooth fairy" looking over her!! As well as the hearts on each side of the sentiment!

Here is a close up of the title card:
I based my colors off of the sequins colors!  I really like the pink and gold together!!!

On the opposite site I kept things pretty simple and just have pictures, along with her "glittery" dolor from the fairy!
I really like how this project life page turned out!!

"Bee" sure to check out all the lovely products Honey Bee Stamps has to offer!
Happy Stamping!!

Blinged Birthday with GI

Happy Friday Stamping Friends!

It's my day to post on the Great Impression Stamps Blog once again!

I created my card with this month's Blinged Birthday Challenge in mind!!
  I stenciled the stars onto my cardstock using shades of pink distress inks.

I then stamped the beautiful Swirly Happy Birthday (E367) sentiment!!  I love the font used on this sentiment, so beautiful!!
I added a bunch of pink bling!  And as you can see in the bottom left of this picture, I also sprayed the card with some glitter spritz!  So it is VERY shimmery!!

Here's some inspiration for you:

Here is a card sketch....



and photo/colors to find inspiration from....



-----------------

For today's card I was inspired by the sketch and a few of the colors to create a Graduation card for my sister!!

In decided to turn the sketch on the side.
So I started by stamping the Stripe-tastic Edge stamp on a piece of white cardstock.  I then stamped the Star Ink Splatter twice, once on each end!

I then stamped the sentiment from the Congrads! stamp set!  As well as adding the graduation cap!

I then stamped the Star Ink Splatter in the top left corner in a light yellow and then added the open stars from the Magical Unicorn stamp set in a darker yellow!  I really like the ink splatter combined with the open stars!!!

My sisters's college colors are red and blue!!

Bee Happy with HBS

Hello Stamping Friends!


It's my day once again to post on the Honey Bee Stamps Blog!!

For my card today, I based it off of the Mood Board Challenge currently going on at HBS!!
13015345_10208121512828919_4186936398311942132_n

I started by creating my Tri Fold Shutter Card Base.  I then started choosing the papers I wanted to use.
I then stamped some of the pieces of paper.

I am so super happy with how this card turned out!!


Here's a look at the card closed:
I stamped the pretty floral image from the Sweet As Honey stamp set a few time on the two end panels.

Again I used the Sweet As Honey stamp set to stamp the honeycomb image, sentiment and bee on the center panel!

A view of the card opened up:
So fun!!

I stamped the honeycomb image and tiny bee on the right center panel around the edges so that a message could be written in the middle for the recipient!

I stamped the "Have a Sweet Day" sentiment from the Happy Everything stamp set to the right panel.

When I first started creating this card I knew I wanted to use the fun Hand Lettered Alpha to create the "Bee" Happy!!" sentiment on my center middle panel!!
I also added some more bees from the Sweet As Honey stamp set around my sentiment!!

I really like how this card turned out!  Been a while since I created a card with this fold type!

"Bee" sure to check out all the lovely products Honey Bee Stamps has to offer!
Happy Stamping!!
