Thank You |Best Wishes| In The Tropics

The In the Tropics stamp set reminds me of sun and relaxation. Blooms that should be stamped with very bright colors.  Our Be Amazing color collection was perfect for this!

I used the Journey Rectangles the Fancy Label Dies to cut out a piece of Whip Cream  card stock. [Be sure to save the Fancy Label piece that you cut out, you will need that later.]

The tropical blooms were randomly stamped in the following ink:  Cosmic Grape, Turbo Teal, Outrageous Pink, Orange Rave and Limeade Splash.

Thank You In the Tropics

This panel was popped up onto an Electric Lime card base using Foam Squares.

On the insert piece, I stamped the Best Wishes sentiment that comes from the Everyday Script [this set also comes as a bundle with coordinating dies] in Black Licorice Ink. It was adhered using Craft Glue and inset onto the card base.  I added Sparkle Silk to finish off the card.Thank You In the Tropics2

Here is a video for you!

I love that there is really no paper waste on this card because you are reusing the insert.

May all your handmade creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

Bold Wings (1 of 4)

Bold Wings (SS-0420) is such a beautiful stamp set.  The detail on the butterfly is just spectacular!!  And the sentiments that come with this set are very inspirational.

This week I will showcase 4 different card designs for this set.

The card layout showcased today, uses our White Liner sheets (AD-0113) and Journey Sparkle Dust (AC-0013). I got a little carried away with this technique!  But it was so much fun!!!!

For the background on the Bubble Gum cardstock (CS-0099), the Bold Wings stamp was used with River Stone ink (IP-0053) and stamped all over the cardstock to make your own background (be sure to rotate the image or stamp only part of it).

On the card below, no color was added to the butterfly after it was stamped in Rock Candy ink (IP-0028),  You stamp the butterfly onto Whip Cream cardstock (CS-0040) and then stamp it onto the White Liner Sheet.  Cut the butterfly out on the White Liner sheet.  The peel off the backing and lay it on top of the butterfly that is on the Whip Cream cardstock. Then peel off the other backing piece (the one on the top) and add Journey Sparkle Dust.  Burnish (rub) it onto the White Liner sheet with your fingers and tap off the excess.

No color was added to the butterfly

The sentiment was stamped in Black Licorice ink.  Adhere the Whip Cream panel to the River Stone panel (IP-0053) (note the River Stone panel was cut out using our Journey Rectangles (DI-0041) – and it has a piercing element) and popped up on the Bubble Gum card base using our Journey Foam Squares (AD-0085).

The card was finished off by adding Journey Glaze (AD-0002) to the sentiment and adding  Journey Sequins – Special Celebration (AC-0115) and Pink World (AC-0112) to various spots on the card.

Here is another variation of this layout but this time I colored in the butterfly first on the Whip Cream cardstock before adding the White Liner Sheet and Sparkle Dust.  I love how it came out and really gives it a POP of color!!!
