Flowerette Fun….

April 15, 2021

Here’s a fun ‘Happy Mail Card’ from the new InkyStamper release on April 13, 2021.
I created this card from Neenah Cardstock for the base and the rest of the cardstock elements from my scrap box. I inked up the sentiment with Nuvo’s Black Shadow Ink and distressed the tag from the InkyStamper small Fry Box die with Nuvo’s Rubber Ducky Ink. The card base was stenciled with Nuvo’s Glacier paste in Green Envy and the small flower center was embellished with Nuvo’s Glimmer Paste in Moonstone. I die cut the flowers with InkyStampers Flowerette Die and cut them down proportionately to fit my card base. I die cut the leaves from the Envie die set. I embellished the large flower with Nuvo’s Bluebell Hearts Confetti. I chalked the background with Pan Pastel Phthalo Blue with a soft brush.

This is my granddaughter’s 6th birthday card. I tried to make it fun so, I used fun stuff. Who doesn’t loves cute snails and sparkly mushrooms? Right?

I created the card from with Neenah White cardstock and Nuvo’s mini ink pad in Pistachio Green using the direct to paper inking technique to create the background. I cut a die cut image for the grass from a die that I have in my collection of retired dies, out of Doodlebug Design 6×6 paper pad-Swiss Dot. Some of the mushrooms and Snail were stamped on Neenah White with Nuvo’s Acorn Brown Ink from the Snail stamp and die set from InkyStamper, the other mushrooms were fussy cut from the doodlebug Swiss dot and Sugar and Spice scraps from another project. The Snail was Die cut from Neenah White paper and hand colored with WaterColor Pencils and Nuvo’s Glitter Markers. The sentiment was stamped on Neenah White with Nuvo’s Dried Oregano Ink and cut with a die from retired dies. The whole card was embellished with Sequins Mix- Mermaid Water and Gem mix- Day and Night from Picket Fence. I completed the look with Nuvo’s Crystal Glaze and googly eyes from my collection.

Thanks for coming to my blog to look and have a great day😘

Sunday, funday…

Today has been a day of rest for myself and my family. Our son and grandson came to visit and spend the night . My grandson and I baked chocolate chip cookies . It’s one of our traditions and we’ve been baking the cookies since he was old enough to stand on a chair and help. We always make half of the dough without nuts and the other half with nuts.

We bake and chat and he learns how to bake his favorite cookies and I learn about his life. It’s a fun time for both of us and I treasure these moments with him.

Sometimes you don’t have to make crafts with paper, cloth or glue to make memories. Thanks for visiting today and go out and make memories❤️

The bunny was stamped with Nuvo’s Acorn Brown Ink and colored with Nuvo’s Glitter Markers. The basket, too, was stamped with Nuvo’s Acorn Brown Ink and colored with Nuvo’s Colour Pencils. The card was completed with sequins for embellishment from my collection and glazed with Nuvo’s Crystal Glaze.

Planner clips are fun to make and spring is such a fun time to make paper crafts. Thanks for stopping by to visit.

I created this planner clip with paper from my collection and stamped the bunny image, retired stamp fromFun Stampers Journey, with Nuvo’s Acorn Brown Ink and colored the image with Nuvo’s Metallic Markers. I created the egg with Honey Pop paper from Inky Antics. I completed the clip with a cute Bee Button and a paper flower colored with Copic Sketch Markers.

It’s Spring 💐

March 23, 2021

I’ve been playing with fun techniques. Air blown Alcohol Ink. This technique makes beautiful backgrounds that may be used in many ways.

I created this Memorydex card by first Blowing alcohol ink on Yupo Translucent Paper with 91% Rubbing Alcohol. I let the Yupo paper dry over night. I tried stamping on the background with Momento’s Black Tuxedo ink and let it dry for a few hours, but it did not dry enough and the ink smeared. ☹️

I ultimately used the Yupo paper background to die cut eggs to use in my Memorydex design.

The Memorydex card was created by die cutting the cards with HeidiSwapp’s die from paper in my collection. I used cute spring colored paper and made it have texture by running through my corregator tool. I cut Easter grass in small pieces and glued them to the underside of a die cut basket and then glued to my background piece. I stamped the bunny image from a retired stamp set from FunStampersJourney with Nuvo’s Acorn Ink on Neenah white cardstock, coloring the bunny with Nuvo’s Glitter Markers. I embellished the card with sequins from my collection and stamped the sentiment with a custom multicolored stamp pad.

I hope you have enjoyed this project and thank you for looking.💐🐣🐇
