Howdy, crafty friends. Ink Blot Shop has a brand new release HERE and I’ve made a few projects with some of the new goodies. First up is the rainbow card… I started by stamping the Starry Sprinkle Background using white pigment ink on to a kraft panel. Next, I stamped the adorable rainbow image from the Giant Rainbow stamp set and cut it out. I used that piece to trace the outline shape on...

Halloween Slimline Card

Hello, crafty friends. I have a spooky slimline card to share today… I started by stamping and Copic coloring the images from the Toil and Trouble stamp set. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and stamped a sentiment from the Too Cute To Spook stamp set on the cauldron. I cut a slimline panel from the Slim Diagonal Stitched Die and inked up some clouds using Distress Oxide ink and some...

New Distress Christmas Collection

Hi there, crafty friends. Tim Holtz just released some new seasonal products with Ranger and they are amazing. I used a few to create this card… I wanted to create a non Holiday card to show you that these products will elevate any style of card. To create this card, I started by creating the background. I sprayed a mix of Distress Spray Stains and Distress Oxide Sprays along with water on a panel...

Smiley S’more Card

On the front panel of the card, I applied ink through the heart stencil from the Simple Duo Stencil Set and stamped a sentiment from an older stamp set by My Favorite Things (Get Toasty). I die-cut the Smiley S’mores Die from several pieces of...

Stencil Stamping

Hi, crafty friends. I’m back with a couple of cards created from one technique… ‘ I started by applying Distress Oxide ink through the XL Rose Bouquet Stencil on a 5×7 panel. I sprayed the ink left on the stencil with water and used it as a stamp and pressed it down on another 5×7 white panel. I love that you get two completely different looks from one technique. I finished off the design...

More Born to Sparkle Release Inspiration

I die-cut the Window Blooms coordinating die in the front to create an opening. I also die-cut some grass and adhered it along the bottom. I stamped, colored, and die-cut two window boxes. One for the front of the...

After it was dry, I sprayed Salvaged Patina Distress Stain on top heavily and then spritzed with water to...

Groovy Cards

Hi, crafty friends. I have a couple of groovy cards to share with you today… I applied neon inks through tie-dye stencils to create the backgrounds. I die-cut the peace & love and good vibes dies from holographic card stock and alcohol ink black card stock. I chose to use that black card stock because of it’s velvety smooth finish. I also added a few flowers from the Mother’s Day die to the Good...

Mini Slimline Bear Hugs

Hello, crafty friends. I’m back with more inspiration featuring products from THIS release… I started by mixing in Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink into the white embossing paste. This is a great way to stretch your supplies. Instead of buying lots of colors of embossing paste, I only buy white and mix in ink to add color. I applied the paste through one of the Mini Slimline Patterns stencils on a pink panel cut...
