One of a kind Day

2021 Releases, alcohol ink, Dull Glossy Paper, flowers, Friendship

Summer has arrived here in WI! In the form of hot and muggy but I’m not complaining. However, I did turn on the air conditioner! Lovely sweet card today using my four square Cutting Die!

I made this sweet card yesterday for a friend of mine and even already mailed it. One of the best things about being off the road…is all the cards I make actually go to people to enjoy instead of winding up in the booth!

Birthday, Dull Glossy Paper

A little break from valentines with yesterday’s sympathy and today’s birthday card. I love these skinny candles and love blending the alcohol ink markers. I had one little issue with the dark blue that it just wasn’t blending well. I tried putting it on first and then the lighter color and then tried reverse. Not sure why it dried so fast but oh well! That sometimes happens. Things don’t always go as planned. Still love how these look though!

Stamps: B302 Wish Big, EE53 Skinny Candles, C302 Blow Out the Candles

The candles come in a set of reverse images so when stamped together, there is more variation. There is also a cutting die for them if we needed one to pop up. Link is here > https://shopec.com/shop/ols/products/cdee53-skinny-candles-cutting-die-cd5-skn-cnd-ctt

Or

I haven’t decided which one to use yet but am leaning more towards G350.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday!

Beeing you! – Jan. 17, 2022

Dull Glossy Paper, Frogs & Bugs, Thank You Cards

Happy Monday and I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! These two bee cards were so fun to make. I dabbed the honeycomb stamp with a golden ink pad and a yellow ink pad to get the variation. Then I stamped it two more times without re-inking. On the oval, I rubbed the edge of the paper along the ink pad to add color. The bees are colored with a marker.

Dull Glossy Paper, Thinking of You

Good morning and happy Thursday!

This card is white cardstock folded at top with a swatch of dull gloss colored with the edge of an ink pad. I just start at the edge and rub the paper across the ink pad in each direction until I feel it has enough color. The stripes on the purple piece of paper is created with HH28 (link below). The flower is colored with alcohol inks. Links to stamps and cutting die are below!
