Neat & Tangled Release Recap

Hey everyone! Welcome back! I hope you enjoyed all the inspiration this week featuring the September release from Neat & Tangled. As you may have seen, I had a ton of fun!

But wait! I have one more card to share with you.

In today’s card I’m featuring the Starry Sky stamp set and pairing it with an image from the stamp set To The Stars.

I started by creating my background. First, I ink blended a piece of Neenah Solar White 80 lb card stock using Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry and Tattered Rose Distress Oxide ink with Life Changing Blender Brushes.

Once this was dry, and you need to make sure it’s completely dry, I stamped the Starry Sky background in Embossing ink. Then heat set with Gold Embossing Powder. I trimmed the panel down and attached to an A2 card base made from white card stock.

My image comes from the To The Stars stamp set. I stamped it in Black Ink using my Misti Stamping Tool onto some Neenah Solar White 80 lb. card stock. Then colored with copic markers.

Once colored, I die cut using the coordinating dies and my Gemini Jr die cutting machine. I adhered my images to the front of the card with tape runner and foam squares. After I took the picture I realized I may have used the same color combo for a previous card I created using these fairies. I guess I really like this combo (lol!)

I finished off the card by adding a sentiment that I stamped onto Black card stock with Embossing Ink and heat embossing with gold Embossing powder.

In case you missed it, here is my inspiration from earlier this week. I’ll include links to these posts as well.

My first set of cards is creating a glowing background for the Lunar Moth from the Moon Magic stamp set. You can read more about this card (HERE) in a previous post. I also have a video that you can (HERE) on my Youtube channel showing how I created it.

My next card not only features the Moon Magic stamp set but the Moon & Stars stamp set as well. You can read more about this card (HERE) on my earlier post.

Then I have a card featuring yet again, the glorious Moon Magic stamp set paired with the Starry Background. You can read about this card (HERE) on my earlier post.

And last but not least, is my card from Day featuring the Moon Magic with the Grateful Heart stamp set. You can read about this card (HERE).

Whew! Tons of inspiration that I hoped spark your creativity. I really enjoyed this release and hope you do too.

Halloween Yeti – Flippin Awesome!

Welcome everyone! I have a fun Halloween Interactive card to share today using the Flippin Awesome die from Lawn Fawn!

VIDEO DETAILS

I have a video that you can view down below or (HERE) on my Youtube channel.

CARD DETAILS

I think these interactive cards are really fun to tell a story. Mine is about this Yeti getting a pumpkin for Halloween and carving a fun face. These Yetis are not just for winter. They want to have fun all year round! They would also make great monsters on a Halloween card.

To create my scene, I used Happy Harvest, Pick of the Patch and Yeti or Not stamp sets. They are stamped in Jet Black ink onto white card stock with my Misti tool and colored with copic markers.

I created a spooky night time background by ink blending Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide inks with a Life Changing Blender Brush. I splattered on Liquid Stardust and gold paint from the Gansai Tambi Starry Colors for sparkly stars.

For my scenery, I used a Stitched Hillside Border die cut from Cilantro card stock and ink blended with Pine Needles. I also added the Spooky Fence that I die cut from Black Glitter card stock from the Autumn Collection.

Once my interactive card was put together, I decided to add a few more elements from the Spooktacular stamp set.

The sentiments are from the Spooky Village and Pick of the Patch stamp set which paired perfectly with my scene. I stamped them in Embossing Ink onto Black Licorice card stock and heat embossed with White embossing powder. I then used the Everyday Sentiments Banner die to cut out my sentiments and attach to my card front.

I hope you enjoyed todays’ inspiration!

On A Christmas Walk

Welcome everyone! Today I’m sharing a card from the September release from Picket Fence Studios. I’m using the adorable new On A Christmas Walk stamp set.

I start off by stamping my images using my Misti tool onto Neenah Solar White card stock with Picket Fence Studios Black Hybrid Ink which is great for using with different mediums. Then I color my images with copic markers.

Once colored, I die cut out the image with the coordinating die and set off on the side to work on my background.

I thought a pretty snowy scene would be perfect for my image. Using a piece of Lapis card stock I ink blended from the top going down with Navy and Cornflower Ink from Hero Arts using my Life Changing Blender Brushes. I also added a little Sea Salt Reactive Ink to the bottom of the card to help the transition of the color.

Next, I added a couple drops of White Glimmer Metallic Ink to my craft sheet, added a couple drops of water and flicked this mixture onto my background. This gave a beautiful snowy sky!

Once my panel was completely dry, I heat embossed the sentiment in the bottom corner with Gold Embossing Powder.

I finished off by adding my images with foam squares for a little dimension.

Leave a comment on the YNS Blog (CLICK HERE) and/or the YNS Instagram page (CLICK HERE) each day to be entered to win! All comments must be left by 9/15 and the winners will be announced 9/17.

CARD DETAILS

For my card today I’m using the ever-adorable Make Some Noise stamp set. This set is filled with little birdies ready to party. I stamped my images in copic friendly ink and colored with copic markers. For some reason, I had chickies in my head which is why they are yellow so I decided to call these little birdies canaries.

After coloring my images with some fun party colors, I cut out with the coordinating die using my Spellbinders Platinum 6 machine.

I added a colorful sky by using a cloud stencil and ink blending on Wilted Violet, Salty Ocean, Twisted Citron, Dried Marigold and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxides inks. Using a Life Changing blender brush makes stenciling on soft clouds a breeze! (see what I did there?)

After adding my clouds, I squished some ink from each color onto my craft mat and spritzed each one with a little water. Then flicked on the color to my background with a paint brush for some added interest. I also added flicks of white metallic ink from Hero Arts.

After my panel was dry and I had figured out where my images would go, I stamped on my sentiment using Versafine Black ink.

I added my images to the card front with liquid adhesive and a couple of the canaries are popped up with foam squares.

Such a super fun birthday set!

Picket Fence Studios STAMPtember with Simon Says Stamp + VIDEO

VIDEO

I have a tutorial for my card that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

CARD DETAILS

I’m so excited to share this fun new stamp set with you from Picket Fence Studios. It is a large 6″x 8″ stamp set with 5 different snowmen, some cute critters, a variety of sentiments and other fun Christmas/Winter elements.

I’m going to do something I don’t normally do. Masking. I’m not a fan of fussy cutting but it was one of those things that HAD to be done for the card I had in mind.

I’m starting by stamping my snowmen onto Neenah Solar White card stock with Picket Fence Studios Black Hybrid Ink. I’m also going to stamp this image onto Simon Says Stamp Masking paper and fussy cut just inside the stamped black line of the image. Then I can attach over my snowman on my card.

Using some post it tape, I’m going to create my own hills and layer that onto my card front to protect my snow while I create the sky.

I’m going to be working on my Waffle Flower Media Mat which is a Silicone mat that is great for working with different types of media. I like to ink blend on it because my card doesn’t slide around

Using the 2 1/2″ Blending Circle Stencil, I will mask off the mask and ink blend Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink in the circle. I’m just going to apply this lightly to the outer edges with my Life Changing Blender Brush.

I’ll remove the stencil and use the second piece of it which will cover the moon and protect my image while I do the sky.

I’m going to ink blend using Picked Raspberry, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide inks. I can remove the stencil and masks but reattach the mask for my front hill. Then I’ll ink Tumbled Glass working from the top of the post tape up towards the top of the hill. I’m going to leave the top of the hill white to reflect a glow from the moon.

After I remove my masks, I will color in the snowman with my copic markers. The colors I used are listed below

  • Snowman – BV00, BV000,BV0000
  • Hat – R17, R22, R21
  • Buttons – G03
  • Carrot – YR18, YR14
  • Hat Pom Pom – C2- C0
  • Dog #1 – E27, E25, E23, E21
  • Dog #2 – W5, W4, W2, W1

Normally with an ink blended background, I’ll flick water onto it but this time I’m using Lawn Fawn’s Liquid Stardust. It’s absolutely gorgeous and so sparkly! I’ll shake the bottle up well and then squeeze a couple of drops onto my work surface. Then picking up with a paint brush I’ll flick this all across my background.

I stamped the sentiment in embossing ink onto black card stock and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I trimmed this down to a thin strip and attached to my card front with black foam squares.

I thought this was missing something so I also stamped out two dogs and colored those in with the copic markers. After fussy cutting the images out leaving a white border, I’ll attach to the card front with white foam squares.

Hope you enjoyed today’s card! Be sure to head on over and grab yours before it sells out !
