Sweet Stuff for my birthday!

Posted on

How cute is the new Sweet Stuff Stamp Set (page 87)? and since I’m just “so sweet“, how appropriate to use this stamp set on my birthday, tee hee! 🙂

Here is MY card to ME, remembering my glory days of a six-year-old ballerina. Ah yes, good times, good times!

Sweet Stuff - Happy Birthday Cutie - JIF

When I see “bee happy” sadly I HAVE to do the obvious…

Sweet Stuff - Bee Happy - JIF

This next card was one of those cards that kept on giving. Initially it was just the center piece. Well, that seemed awfully dull so out came some Lullaby DSP which naturally required a border. The sentiment seemed lifeless so the bird flew in. Both it and the ice-creams were colored using Blendabilities. I did attempt coloring the sentiment with them also but the Pistachio Pudding Marker was what was needed.

Sweet Stuff - Ice Cream Cones - JIF

After the ice-creams were adhered I decided to use some Dazzling Details on them. Then seeing that had a matte finish when dried rather than a gloss I added some Liquid Crystal. The Pistachio Pudding Cardstock then seemed lifeless so with the heart from the Project Life Point & Click Stamp Set, I randomly stamped in Pistachio Pudding over it.

Words Create a Background!

Posted on

The Dictionary Background Stamp would have to be a favorite of mine. Yes, I am aware I say that a lot but I’m fairly certain I don’t say that about EVERY stamp, lol!

Using the Dictionary Background Stamp and the new Blendabilities I had a lot of fun with the next three cards.

Dictionary - Just for You - JIF

This next card is background on background with the beautiful Pleasant Poppies Stamp. The border of the Blackberry Bliss Cardstock came about by accident. I cut out a Top Note Die Cut leaving this wonderful negative space which I almost threw out but something stopped me. So glad I kept it! 🙂

Dictionary - Poppies - JIF

For this next card I used my Aqua Painters instead of the Blendabilities for a much lighter effect. The card I CASE’d from the Annual Catalog using the Flower Shop Stamp Set with coordinating Pansy Punch.

Dictionary - Pansies - JIF

Doesn’t the Linen Thread give a subtle yet beautiful finish to the last two cards?! I also trialed the new Gold Pen on this card, noice!

I’m placing orders tonight so if there’s anything you require please let me know today and I’ll add yours and fingers-crossed we’ll have them here by the end of next week!

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!

Blendabilities are NOW available!!!

Posted on

Well half are available now which are the colors I’ve been using: Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Coastal Cabana, Pumpkin Pie, as well as the Skin Tone Assortment!

Blendabibility News - woohoo!

The remainder of the colors will be available the beginning of next month – August 1st – not long at all!

Now, since I’m feeling daring (or perhaps that’s tired I’m not sure, sometimes the lines are blurred) I’ve attempted to include a “how-to” you-tube on Blendabilities. I was hoping to include the video itself but instead it seems to be just the link but hey, it’s something.

This is the link which will open up directly over this page, not onto a new page, so before you click the link remember to: call me/email me/facebook me to order the beginning of your new obsession today. Okay, now here’s the link: SU Blendabilities Basics!

Colored Rhinestones

Posted on

If you asked me what I liked MOST about the new Blendabilities is the fact they can permanently color the Basic Rhinestone Jewels!

On the card below the Basic Rhinestone Jewels at both the top and bottom of the card were colored with the Cherry Cobbler Dark Blendability Pen. The color in real-life is far more intense than this scan is letting on. Note to self: NEVER EVER again scan a card!

Giggle Greetings - Bowl of Cherries Black White - JIF

This stamp is from the Giggle Greetings Stamp Set with that black and white background being a card from the… you guessed it… the Project Life Everyday Card Collection, lol!

This is a good example though how color changes an image. You may or may not remember I used this same image on Tuesday but with a different background, it looks almost like a completely different card.

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!

Giggle Greetings!

Posted on

There was no one sighing a greater sigh of relief than myself when I saw the Giggle Greetings Stamp Set had been carried over to the new Annual Catalog. It’s another fun set that I really hadn’t played with much… until now.

It would appear these new Blendabilities have opened a whole new world to me. Oh and that Moonlight DSP Stack has helped a bit also, tee hee! 🙂

This pussy-cat stamp would HAVE to be my favorite stamp of the set.

Giggle Greetings - Fur Ball - JIFThen again, this crazy dog is pretty cool also. It’s not apparent from this picture but the Decorative Dots Embossing was actually reversed so instead of the dots standing tall, I had them facing down to create indentations of sorts. Then in Early Espresso Classic Ink a stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set was stamped.

Giggle Greetings - Chasing your Tail - JIFCheck out this next fun birthday stamp from the set. The DSP naturally is from the Moonlight DSP Stack and under that there is the smallest layer of yellow swirls. This was a card from the Project Life Everyday Cards Collection which I have used as a layer to give the white on the DSP a definitive edge.

Giggle Greetings - Piece of Cheese - JIF

And last but by no means least, life’s bowl of cherries finished off nicely with a Cherry Cobbler Seam Ribbon bow!

Giggle Greetings - Bowl of Cherries Red Bow - JIF

If you don’t yet own this fun stamp set, please contact me soon to place your order – I’m just a phone call or email away, lol! 🙂

Layering!

Posted on

Yes, I know I’m guilty of layering but for me I often want that little extra color to help make a card “pop”. Just the finest frame of a color can sometimes be all that’s need to take a card to that next level.

So when I found myself over-indulging in the Moonlight DSP Stack when it first arrived, I began layering cardstock instead. The same image can become almost a different one when presented in a different light.Here’s an example of layering with the shopping lady from the In This Together Stamp Set.

In This Together - Orange Bliss Shopping - JIF

Remember this card from a couple of days ago when I was a “smidge” fixated with the new Moonlight DSP Stack?

In This Together - Moonlight Shopping - JIF

By switching out the DSP for a plain background and another layer it becomes a different card. Go on, I dare you, layer it!

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!
