Bloom Burst

The Bloom Burst stamp is just gorgeous!!!  One of my fellow coaches inspired me to make this creation.  I love how clean and simple it looks and yet bold at the same time.

Hope Anchors

On a piece of Butter Cream (CS-0006) card stock I stamped the sentiment from the Hope Anchors (SS-0546) stamp set in Black Licorice ink (IP-0041).  [The Hope Anchors stamp set does have coordinating dies and is available in a bundle.  It don’t know about you but it is a must  for my stash.  I love inspirational sayings and I love how bold these are.]

Hope Anchors2

On a paper plate, I layered some paper towels and then added a few drops from the Huckleberry Fusion (RI-0012) and Pretty Amethyst (RI-0023) re-inkers.  Using a Large Dauber (TO-0138), I inked up the flower of the image.  Then using another Large Dauber (TO-0138) inked it up with Kiwi Slice (IP-0024) ink and applied it to just the stem of the image and stamped it onto my Buttercream panel.  I love this technique, you will get a different look each time.

Hope Anchors 3

I adhered the Butter Cream panel to a Huckleberry Fusion card base and the card was done.

Hope Anchors4

I hope you give this technique a try.  So much fun.

May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.


What?!?!? – Turbo Teal Ink and Cranberry Bliss Card Stock

Sometimes the creative mind takes over and you just have to go with it!!!

I wanted to make some birthday cards to have on hand and I know I wanted to use the Ink Splat (AT-0108) ATS.  I pulled out a piece of Cranberry Bliss (CS-0090) card stock and for whatever reason reached for my Turbo Teal Ink Pad (IP-0116).  Well I have to say I love how it turned out!

I adhered the Cranberry Bliss piece to a piece of Black Licorice (CS-0003) and then adhered it to a Whip Cream (CS-0040) card base.

Make a Wish

Using Silver Embossing Powder (IP-0100) I heat embossed the Make-A-Wish ATS (AT-0246) onto Black Licorice (CS-0003) and cut it out with the coordinating die (DI-0355) or you can buy it as a bundle (BD-0270).  I then popped it up using Foam Squares (AD-0085).  I added some Special Celebrations Sequins (AC-0115) using Glue Dots (AC-0083)Journey Glaze (AD-0003) was applied to the cup of the sequin.  I wanted to try it.  It doesn’t change the look but it changed the texture when you touch them.  Makes them rounded.

Make a Wish2 copy

For the inside I stamped it the same way as the card front but used the Gift Slider Die Set (DI-0384) so that you can add a gift card.  I will be posting a couple other cards that I made using this die set throughout the week.  I wasn’t sure if I really needed this die in my stash or not but I have to say that I am so glad that I purchased it.  It comes in handy for gift card giving and I love the uniqueness of it.

May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

Happy gift card giving!



Be Mine|I Love You |Type Block

I picked the Type Block (AT-0131) as one of my free ATSs with one of my orders.  [See the details in the beginning of either of our catalogs on what rewards you get for being a host if your order is $150 or more].  Not sure what I was going to do with it but then inspiration struck after looking through our Annual Catalogs.  I love that our catalogs give you such great inspiration.  Whether you create the craft project as they did or whether it inspires you to create outside the box so to speak and come up with your own version.

I Love You

I used the Love Stripes (EF-0013) Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Pomegranate Splash (CS-0027) card stock.  This piece was layered onto a Black Licorice (CS-0003) card base.  I cut a piece from the Through the Year Prints (PP-0050) [they carried this over from the Journey Holidays Mini, so you can still order this through the end of June 2018 – awesome, right, I love this paper pack]!  That piece was popped up onto the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0085).

On a scrap piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock, I stamped the Type Block (AT-0131) stamp using Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink and adhered that piece onto a piece of Black Licorice (CS-0003) card stock.  Using Foam Squares (AD-0085), I popped that panel up onto the card front but at an angle.

I Love You 4

Using our Bright Lights (JD-0047), I highlighted the I and the U and then added a heart from the Love Filled (AC-0345) accents over the L.  Using Glue Dots (AD-0083), I added a bow using Black Licorice Twine (AC-0004).

I Love You 2

For the inside I used some scrap pieces from the Through the Year Prints (PP-0050) and added it to the top and bottom of a piece of Whip Cream card stock.  Using Black Licorice Ink (IP-0041) and Candy Apple Ink (IP-0017), I stamped the images from the Be Mine (SS-0130) stamp set.  [The Be Mine stamp set also has coordinating dies and comes in a bundle as well].

Periodic Table |I Lv U |Be Mine

I was being a mad scientist or in this case a mad stamper with the Perfect Atoms (SS-0457) stamp set.

Periodic Table1

Using the Diamond Netting (EF-0026) Embossing Folder, I embossed a piece of Mirror Silver (CS-0137) card stock.  Boy, oh, Boy does it look cooler than I thought it would.

Periodic Table3

I adhered this piece onto a Turbo Teal (CS-0127) card base.  Using Foam Squares (AD-0085), I popped up a piece from the Project Me (PP-0043) paper pack [lots of cool prints in this pack]. 

Using the Film Capture Die (DI-0282), I cut out a piece of Black Licorice (CS-0003) card stock and adhered it to a piece of Brush Silver (CS-0135) card stock using our Craft Glue (AD-0111).  On a scrap piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock, I stamped the I Lv U from the Perfect Atoms (SS-0457) stamp set in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink.  I cut the squares and popped them up using our Small Foam Squares (AD-0084) onto the Film Strip Piece.  I added a piece of Candy Apple Twine (AC-0266)  to the back using a Foam Square (AD-0085) and popped up the Film Strip piece on the card front.

Periodic Table2

I couldn’t stop creating so I stamped the Be Mine from the Be Mine (SS-0130) stamp set in Clear Pigment (IP-0102) ink and mixed Silver and Black embossing powder (IP-0100 and 0099) together and heat embossed it onto a scrap piece of  Pomegranate (CS-0027) card stock and adhered that to the front using a Paper Clip Element (AC-0102) and then added some Magical Candy Drops (AC-0263) to finish off the card.

The inside sentiments were stamped with Black Licorice (IP-0041) and Turbo Teal (IP-0127) ink.

Best Wishes

I Love, Love, Love the new Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051) that is in the new Bloom This Way Mini Trends Catalog (CL-0030)!!!!!  They are so beautiful!!!!

I stamped the saying Best Wishes from the Everyday Script Bundle (BD-0344) in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink onto a piece of Bubble Gum (CS-0099) card stock and cut it out using the coordinating die.

Best Wishes 1

I added Sparkle Silk (IP-0126) to the Best Wishes piece and well as the Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051) piece.  Using Easy Glide (AD-0081) I adhered the Spring Filled Prints piece to a piece of Watermelon Fusion (CS-0039) before adhering it to the Whip Cream (CS-0040) card base.  Using Foam Squares (AD-0084 and AD-0085), I popped up the Best Wishes onto the lower right corner of the card front.

Best Wishes 3

I love that the focal point of this card is really the Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051).  They are so beautiful that they really should take center stage.
