Here is the project I created to share with you :)

As some of you may have heard we have an amazing, magical ink that we developed called Fadeout and it was specifically created for No Line Watercoloring, but it is also amazing for Copics, Pencils and other media as it is a detail, waterproof ink.

So that is where I started, I grabbed the Ink On 3 Fadeout ink and stamped it with the stamp set Roses In Bloom, as I love roses and I wanted to color some yellow ones.
I watercolored them with Danial Smith watercolors (that my wonderful friend Lydia from Understand Blue introduced me to) with my all time favorite paint brush. I then fussy cut it out, I love how soft and pretty it turned out. I then used the "Thank You" Stand alone word die that comes with the Ink On 3 Hollyhocks Coordinating dies. To finish my card I used an embossing folder that reminded me of a rose trellis and added some natural twine and rhinestones and of course I added a finishing touch of glitter with some Wink Of Stella to the rose petals and leaves, and called it done. Thanks for popping in! <3

Now for the lineup and where to hop next:

Hollyhocks Coordinating Die Cuts with Stand Alone Word Die "Thank You"

Fleurette here and I am so excited to have you here to hop along with us!
I had so much fun creating this card.  For my card I stamped the Hollyhocks Stamp  different 3 times in Blackout Copic friendly waterproof detail ink, to create a hanging garden effect.  The fist two I stamped directly onto some Neenah Solar White card stock, as colored them with Copics. The third time I stamped and cut out the image using the the coordinating Hollyhocks Die Cuts. So fun and easy!

I also stamped and die cut the cute little butterflies. The "Thank You" was die cut with the stand alone word die that comes with the coordinating Hollyhocks Die Cuts.  I cut out 4 of them to create some depth and coated them with some Glossy Accents to give them a glossy finish.  I popped up the center die cut hollyhocks and the two butterflies with some foam tape, to give it extra dimension. Then added a touch of glitter to the flowers and butterflies with the Wink Of Stella glitter pen.
I will list the Copic marker combinations I used at the bottom of this post.

I had some extra fun while creating this card as I had a friend over who really wanted to learn how to make a card and also wanted to learn how to shade with Copics, I was amazed at how well she did, especially since it was her first time ever using Copic markers!   So, my card was actually created during a teaching session. So fun!  She did such an amazing job, I bet you will have a really hard time figuring out which I did and which she did :D  Below are the two card side by side.

How to Youtube video to come. 

Copic Markers Used: 
Pinks in flowers ~ RV11, RV55,RV66
Greens ~ YG01,YG03,YG95

Sneak Peek- Ink On 3's new Hollyhocks Stamp set

This week for my Design Team project, I am sharing a card I made while also giving you a sneak peek at the new stamp set that is coming out for Ink On 3 called Hollyhocks.  It also has a coordinating die set.
My card is simple but pretty.  I accented the butterflies and parts of the flowers with my glitter pen and only stamped the images in one color.  The butterflies are popped out just a bit by bending the wings up and gluing onto an embossed background.

I hope you enjoyed the sneak peek!  Have a great day!

Hollyhocks Thank You Card - No Line Coloring by Ilda

Hello friends!

This week the Ink On 3 Design team has been sharing some card previews of the new Hollyhocks Stamp and Die Set that is coming out June 14th!

So here is a peek at my card...
I just LOVE this stamp and think you all will too! 😍

Hollyhocks Thank You Card - No Line Coloring by ilovedoingallthingscrafty

To color in this card, I first stamped the image using Fadeout ink and then loosely colored in the image using Mijello Mission Gold Watercolors.

The Thank you die comes as a stand-alone die along with the coordinating die set. All I did to it was snip the little butterfly that is attached and added glossy accents to finish it off.

To complete the card, I used the "you are amazing" sentiments and stamped them out using Blackout Ink. And there you have it, a beautiful no line Hollyhock thank you card!

I appreciate the time you spent here, so thank you for stopping by 😊
Until next time... Happy Crafting 👋

Hollyhock Card

Hey everyone! Kelli here with a preview of the Hollyhock Stamp and Die set that is coming out on June 14th! Can't wait! I also just planted some hollyhocks in our backyard so I hope they start growing soon!
So I used the new Hollyhock Stamp set from the online store and colored them in with Prismacolor Colored Pencils.

The stamped sentiment is also from the Hollyhock set.
To add some dimension to the background, I used texture paste and a stencil. I love doing this because it adds just a little bit more interest and since those flowers are so beautiful, I didn't want to do anything to take away from them!

Just remember, the stamp set comes out on the 14th! Don't forget to stop by!

Hollyhock Thank You

Hi my crafty friends, Cheryl here, for InkOn3.

Yippee!!! It's time for a new release from InkOn3. And it's a beautiful one, at that! 
Who doesn't love a great floral stamp? And who doesn't love hollyhocks? So, here you go!

Isn't that so pretty? And how great to have coordinating dies!!! And so many beautiful sentiments and a very pretty font. I love this set! So let me show you my first card I made using it.

I started off by picking this beautiful background I made using alcohol inks on Yupo paper. Before it was totally dry, you have these "sticky" areas. Take your foil and press it on, rubbing firmly. When you pull it off, some stays stuck and you get these bits of shiny foil left behind. It's so fun to do!

I took the hollyhock stamp and inked it up with Juicy ink and embossed with golf embossing powder. I left it just like that! Well, I brushed it all over with my Wink of Stella glitter brush marker. I think by leaving it uncolored, it works perfectly with the colorful background. 

I then took the Thank You die and cut it from gold foil cardstock and a piece of white fun foam. I cut a second one from a scrap of Yupo paper to get the green butterfly. I carefully trimmed it out and glued it in place over the gold foil one. I adhered it to another scrap of Yupo done in that pretty aqua green color. 

To assemble the card, I added the hollyhock using foam tape. I added foam tape just to the sides of the aqua strip and used liquid glue where it would go over the hollyhock. I then pulled out some clear  acrylic bubbles and scattered a few around. I love how they look like water droplets. I added the entire panel to the front of an A2 card base of heavy weight cardstock. 

And that's it. I think it came out so nice and I love the colors! I love the simplicity of the gold embossed hollyhock. It just works for this card. 

Here's where you can find the things I used.

So, be sure to watch all week for some amazing sneak peaks from the design team. And the release goes live next week! Get out your crafty "toys" and have fun playing!

Rain or Shine

Hello and Happy Wednesday!  For my Ink On 3 design team project today, I am sharing a card I made using the Rain or Shine~Little Darlings stamp set.  This is such a pretty and versatile stamp set.  The new Blackout Detail Ink is wonderful and a must have.  I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color this in. I am pretty new to coloring in stamped images, but I liked how this turned out. I stamped the raindrops in the background using the Juicy Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink pad and embossed with glitter embossing powder.  I added the glass drops for added dimension.

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!

Pansy Card

Hey y'all! I'm so excited because today is my first card to post being on the Ink on 3 Design Team! For this card, I decided to use the Ink on 3 Pansy Stamp Set.
First, I embossed using the Ink on 3 Juicy Clear Embossing Ink and white embossing powder onto white watercolor paper. Y'all have to use this embossing ink! Works perfectly. After heating up the powder and letting it cool off, I just sprayed some Dylusions Shimmer Spray on to my craft mat and painted it on the watercolor paper!
It's as easy as that!
Leave me a comment below and let me know what you think!

Thinking of You...

Hey there, crafty friends! Cheryl, here today. Welcome to the blog and a new project for InkOn3 Design Team.
I pulled out my notebook of card sketches because I had no ideas. I love that I have a resource to go to when I'm stuck, lol. So anyway, this is what I came up with.

I started by creating a watercolor background of pinks, yellows, and orange. Then I picked the areas I liked best for my florals. I stamped in InkOn3's Juicy ink and embossed with white embossing powder. Fussy cut them out and set aside.

I then pulled out some dies from my stash. I chose a scalloped oval and a regular oval from Spellbinders. The pink scalloped layer is cut from glitter paper and the top layer is from white.

I then chose some fun and bright patterned papers and created the strip on the left. The watercolor look paper is from a Lawn Fawn paper pad. I tied a ribbon on the strip and after adhering down the watercolor piece, I added the strip with foam tape.

I then added the oval piece with foam tape on the right side and liquid glue on the left. I added the flowers with foam taped as well. I tucked the leaves in place and glued down with liquid glue.

After cutting some banner strips, I stamped my sentiment with InkOn3 Blackout ink. I love how black and crisp this ink stamps! I also added a banner strip of the same glitter paper and added with foam tape. I picked out some confetti sequins by Studio Katia and scattered a few around.

So, there you have it. A fun Spring/Summer card. If you ever find yourself stuck, look for some sketches that might help you out. It does me! Here's the products I used.

Lilac Dreams - Thinking Of You Card - Watercoloring and Smooshing with Distress Oxide Inks

Hello Friends!

Today I'm sharing this super easy and fun to make card featuring the Lilac Dreams set from Ink On 3. At first, I was going to do a no line coloring for this card and then changed my mind when I realized I wasn't going to have the time to finish it. I've been wanting to try this technique out for a while and I am so happy I did because I love the results! 

Lilac Dreams - Thinking Of You Card - Watercoloring and Smooshing with Distress Oxide Inks by ilovedoingallthingscrafty

I first began by stamping out the lilacs onto the cardstock using Juicy Ink, then heat set the images using a fine white embossing powder.

I then smeared some Seedless Preserve and Wilted Violet Oxide ink onto clear acetate sheet, sprayed it with some water then used the sheet to smoosh onto the cardstock, using my heat gun to dry every layer.  I repeated that process a few times until I was satisfied with the coverage. Then I spritzed the entire panel with water and soaked up the droplets with a paper towel, which left behind some watermarks.

Next, I used a detail watercolor brush and added more distress oxide ink to the flowers using the same colors as the background. Then to the leaves added a mix of Forest Moss, Evergreen Bough, and Lucky Clover Oxide Ink.

I finished the card by adding a sentiment from the Water Lily set to a piece of vellum which I wrapped around the card front and embellished it with some green crystals.

Hope you were inspired by my card today and want to give this fun water coloring technique a try! I appreciate the time you spent here, so thank you for stopping by 😊
Until next time... Happy Crafting 👋

Pansies for Mom Card - No Line Coloring using Fadeout Ink

Hello Friends, Ilda here!

Today I'm sharing another card for Mom today. Yes, another one... and yes I only have one mom, but it's always nice to have Mom cards on hand because not only are they perfect for Mother's Day they are also great for other occasions (A just because card, or even a birthday card too, plus you can give them away to anyone who is Mom).

So for this card, I wanted to play a little more with the Fadeout Ink from Ink On 3 as I love the no line watercolor look and still need tons of practice. So for practice, I played with the new Pansies set creating this beautiful floral background. Overall I am super happy with the results. Yes, it isn't perfect but that's OK because I keep learning from each experience and that's what is important to me plus I had fun doing it. This ink makes the no line coloring process so easy. Honestly you drop the color next to the stamped lines and the pigment gets absorbed, making it super easy to see where you stamped. That is the magical part about this ink.  

Pansies for Mom Card - No Line Coloring using Fadeout Ink by ilovedoingallthingscrafty

  To create this card I had to do quite a bit of masking along the card panel. Once I was happy with the stamped image I began coloring it in with a variety of distress inks. First I laid down a light layer of color to define my stamped images and then went back adding more color and depth to each pansy. Once my coloring was done, I die cut the panel with the pierced rectangle and mounted it on to the card base. I then stamped out the sentiment using Blackout ink and added a few more flowers to frame the sentiment that I had cut out with the coordinating dies.

Pansies for Mom Card - No Line Coloring using Fadeout Ink by ilovedoingallthingscrafty

To finish the card I added some detail lines to the center of each Pansy using a burnt ochre Prismacolor pencil. To each flower, I also added a bit of white with a gelly roller and topped it off with a small drop of Dandelion yellow Tonic drops. For some shine, I added a few scattered iridescent bubbles.

Hope you were inspired by this no line colored card for Mom. Thanks for stopping by and to all the Mommies out there Happy Mother's Day, enjoy your weekend!

You're So Playti-rific Partial Shaker Card

Hello Friends, Ilda here!
The snow is all gone, there are puddles everywhere and the sun is shining... finally Spring has arrived here 🙌 It feels almost as warm as today's card looks!

Today I have another card to share with you featuring the Playtirific Pondies Set from Ink On 3.
These little critters are so cute I had to use them again on another card. This time I wanted to create a shaker card.

You're So Playti-rific Partial Shaker Card by Ilovedoingallthingscrafty

For this card I had planned on creating a process video, but sadly lost some of the footage. So I will explain the process to you below. For now I have included a very short clip here so you can see it up close and in detail!

The first thing I did was stamp out the critters using Blackout Ink (my new favorite). I then colored them in using Spectrum Noir markers and die cut them out using their coordinating dies. Next, I moved on to the front panel.

To create the pond shaker area, first I used the second largest balloon die from Simon Says Stamp to die cut the pond shape on the right edge of the panel. I then lined up the die cut panel onto the card base to use as a guide and die cut the base. The balloon end will cleverly be hidden behind the duck so you would never know it was a balloon die you used to cut out the pond. I then used distress oxide inks to blend out the area along the pond. Once that was done blending,  I stamped out the pond plants along the edge of the water and colored them in.

To create the shaker pocket, I used a clear cello bag (the kind you use to store the finished cards in) trimmed it to size, and adhered it with the finished bottom edge of the bag along the open edge of the card base. I then filled the pocket with sequins and glued the opening of the bag shut. Next, used foam tape along the edge of the pond to create a rim for the top panel to adhere to and to keep the sequins in place. There still was some areas that the sequins snuck into under the panel, so if you want to avoid that I would trim the bag all the way around the pond and use some double sided tape to close it together.

Once the top panel was adhered to the card base I added the critters in place with some foam tape. For the sentiment tag, I stamped the words out with Salty Ocean distress oxide ink and heat set it with clear embossing powder. The last thing I did was add some blue cardstock to the inside of the card and adhered it under the front panel. This did not only add color to the pond but it also hid the balloon end from being seen on the inside of the card.

Here is a closer look at this cuties 😍

A Duck and his Balloons

Today I'm sharing a card I made using the adorable new stamp set from Ink On 3 called Platy-rific Pondies.  The background is made using a cloud embossing folder. I used white pastel chalks to gently "color" each cloud. It really makes them pop! After coloring the balloons I added some glass glitter drops to make them look shiny.
A very simple, but cute card!

Hip Hip Hooray

Hi guys! Cheryl here today.
I have another card using products for the newest InkOn3 release, April 2018. Two super cute and fun stamp sets and coordinating dies for each! Yay for dies!!! And...they are cut apart for you and come on a magnetic sheet. How great is that?

So, for today, I used the Platy-rific Pondies stamp set and the alpha dies from the past release. Let's see what I came up with.

So, here's the thing...I have two grand babies graduating from K this year!!! How can this be happening already? Time goes so fast! Anyway, I did this one for Aleida. I die cut the letters and colored them with bright pink Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. As I did with the duck and the balloons. I brushed over them with my glitter brush from Nuvo. So sparkly and pretty!

I started by taking the small images in the stamp set, arranged them on an acrylic block and stamped them using Juicy ink. I embossed with white embossing powder. I did this until I filled the entire background piece. It's an A2 size card.
I pulled out some dies from Spellbinders and layered a piece of white over the bright pink scalloped circle. I then set about to arrange the duck and the balloons. I used foam tape to adhere. I taped some twine to the backs of the balloons first and tie a bow to group them together, added a dot of liquid glue to hold in place.
I cut a tiny slit under the ducks wing to tuck in the diploma. Added the cap with foam tape as well. 

I then took all the die cut letters and arranged around the circle and glued down with liquid glue. 
Picked out some pretty pink crystals and glued them around two sides. Pulled out a white gel pen and added a few dots here and there. And that finished up this card. 

I hope you like it and got some inspiration! Head over to and check out this release and all the other cool things in the store.

(as of April 2018)

Thanks for coming by. Get to crafting and make something pretty!

Hip Hip Hooray Graduation Card - Using No Line Coloring Technique by ilovedoingallthingscrafty

For today's card I thought I was going to keep things simple and try no line coloring. What I thought would take an hour to do turned into 4 😲 But honestly it didn't feel like 4, because I really did enjoy making and learning lots from this experience. I am in love with the results!

I stamped the images first using the Fadeout No Line coloring Detail Ink, and then had fun watercoloring them all in. To add the details back into the colored images, I used prismacolor pencils and used a Finesse blender pen to blend the colors out.

Hip Hip Hooray Graduation Card - Using No Line Coloring Technique by ilovedoingallthingscrafty

To the inside of the card I stamped the sentiment below using my new favorite ink, Blackout!
