Hi friends!  Have you played yet with the new Distress Oxide inks?  Well, they’re not really that new… I guess they’ve been around a few months now, but I finally picked up just four colors of them this past weekend, and LOVE them!  I have had to restrain myself from buying more, though… I’m trying to curb my spending.  Raise your hand if you buy more stamps and crafting supplies then you will EVER use!?!?!  Yep, I’m raising BOTH hands!  But anyway, with just four colors to use, I’m still having fun experimenting with them.  On Sunday, I decided to use them to color these wine bottles, and made this card…

Cheers

This was made for a very good wine-loving (well, she’s pretty impartial when it comes to ANY alcohol!) friend.  For the first bottle, I just used an aquabrush to apply some Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink to watercolor card stock, then just kept playing with it, spraying with water and drying until I had a neat look.  For the “green” bottle, I got creative with Fossilized Amber and Broken China Distress Oxide inks.  It didn’t turn out quite as green as I had hoped, but still created a great shade of blue, I think!  I used the Wine Service Die-namics from My Favorite Things to die-cut wine bottles, then on the purple bottle I sponged some Dusty Concord Distress ink on the left side for dimension.  And on the green-blue bottle, I sponged some Pine Needles Distress ink.  I added the Cheers die-cut from gold glitter card stock.  I added the BG Wood Plank in the background, and a miscellaneous piece of golden yellow striped designer paper, along with some Champagne sequins for embellishment.  On the inside I added a sentiment from the Uncorked stamp set.

So, cheers!  And thanks for stopping by!

I got home from work today, and just couldn’t wait to spend some time de-stressing!  Luckily the current sketch and color challenges from My Favorite Things sparked my creativity, and here’s what I came up with…

I finally inked up the Cuddly Koalas and made this card to send to one of my aunts who’s currently staying in a nursing home.  Hopefully it’ll bring her some cheer!  I used Steel Grey hybrid ink to stamp the images, then colored with Copics.  Coral Crush, Tropical Teal, Gravel Gray, and Black Licorice card stocks along with the Subtle Plaid 6x6 paper pack and some enamel dots completed my design.

Enjoy the rest of your day, and thanks for stopping by!

      

Hello Blooms

Hi friends!  I hope you’re having a great weekend!  It’s been a gorgeous day here in Northeast Ohio, and I spent some of it doing some stamping.  (And will finish the day with THE. BEST. FIREWORKS. IN. THE. STATE! tonight!)

Here’s a card I made today using the fun Modern Blooms and Mini Modern Blooms stamp sets and matching Die-Namics from My Favorite Things

MFTWSC340

My sentiment is from the You Give Me Butterflies stamp set, and I also used the BG Small Brick and BG Bold Diagonal Stripes background stamps.  Dies used include the Stitched Dome Frames, and Blueprints 12.  Inks used include Sour Apple, Jellybean Green, Gumdrop Green, Summer Splash, Blu Raspberry, Razzle Berry, Cotton Candy, Orange Zest and Persimmon.  I also used the Dots & Stripes Confection paper pack and some Sparkling Clear Sequins for embellishment.

My layout was inspired by the current MFT Sketch Challenge shown here…

And my colors and flowers were inspired by the inspiration photo for The Challenge #90…

Bamboo Rose ABS Cards

Hello friends, and Happy Independence Day to all of my fellow Americans!  I hope you have a safe, enjoyable holiday!

I have a few more cards to share with you today!  After I made this card a few days ago using the beautiful Bamboo Rose stamps and dies from Altenew, I just figured I’d stamp and die cut a few more while I was already making one card.  So the second batch of roses I watercolored in shades of purple, and made this card for my Mom…

Grateful for Mom

My Mom has always been the most amazing person in my life, and I AM grateful for her in so many ways.  She visited us for a long weekend recently, and we went garage sale’ing on Friday, something she’s SO GOOD at!  And with my weight loss over the past year, she has found a lot of “new” clothes for me at garage sales and thrift shops so my summer wardrobe is 90% thanks to her!  So I wanted to send her a card to say thanks for all the new clothes, and just for being my terrific Mom.  Along with the Bamboo Rose stamps, I also used the Grateful stamps and matching Die-Namics, the Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle STAX, and BG Small Brick background from My Favorite Things.

Then, since I still had a few pink and purple Bamboo Roses left, I made these two ABS Cards for extras to keep in my stash!  (If you missed it, check out my post here about ABS Cards!)

Bamboo Roses Thank You

Bamboo Roses Birthday

In addition to the Bamboo Rose stamps and dies, these cards also use the Label Love stamp set from Altenew, and the Stitched Rounded Square Frames Die-Namics, and the BG Whimsical Woodgrain background from My Favorite Things.

I hope this inspires you to do a little shopping, or whip up some ABS Cards for yourself, or BOTH!  Thanks for stopping by!
