Snow Buddies, You Warm My Heart Valentine Cards

Hello Friends,
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are enjoying some Holiday time with your Families!

I'm back today with a few cards featuring Ink On 3's newest Stamp Set Snow Buddies! How cute are these little guys?! 😍

Since I wanted to make multiples of these cards I kept the design really simple.
To create the heart stencil, I used a large post-it note and folded the paper in half, then cut out my heart. I used the negative of the paper and distress inks to blend out the heart on the front panel of each of the cards. I then added some pen detail around each one of the hearts for fun. Once the ink was dry I stamped out my sentiment and heat set them with embossing powder. I used same stitched rectangle die to cut the panels. For the Snow Buddies, I did some stamp masking. I first stamped out the smaller image and then covered it with a mask and then stamped the larger image.  I then used spectrum noir markers to do some really simple coloring.

Here are a few close up of these adorable critters.

I think these seals are my favorite, I especially love how they kinda form the shape of a heart!

To add a bit of dimension to the cards I popped up the image as well as the front panels with foam tape and added glossy accents to their eyes, nose and their little stamped hearts.

On the inside of the cards I finished them with a sentiment from the Lilac Dreams Stamp Set.

Poinsettia Fairy Card using Inkon3 Clear Stamps

Poinsettia Fairy Card using Clear Stamps

Fleurette here sharing a pretty, but simple Christmas card using the fairy, bell and sentiment from the Fairy Christmas clear stamp set.  I wanted to create a card thats main focal point was the fairy.  So, I copic colored my images, fussy cut them out then used foam tape on the elements to pop them up from the page.  I also popped up the Merry Christmas sentiment.  

I chose a vintage looking music patterned paper, as I felt it it went really well with the vintage feel of the images.  Thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment if you enjoyed seeing this card.  

Happy Holidays & Happy Crafting

Quick Christmas Card Created with Planner Stamps

Hello everyone, Ilda here taking over the Ink On 3 blog!

Today I have a quick Christmas card to share with you using stamps that were designed to be used on planners. These Christmas Mini Planner stamps come from Ink On 3's latest release and is on SALE now, so make sure you snag it while you can.

Since I am a horrible planner and don't use a planner, I thought they would be just as fun to use on a card to create a background. I was so right, look how cute this card turned out and it was so quick and simple to make!

Quick Christmas Card Created with Planner Stamps

 To create the background I first stamped the silver images you see, and heat set the silver embossing on them. Then I stamped the other images randomly, using versafine Black Onyx ink and heat set them with a clear embossing powder. Next, I used Zig Clean Real Brush markers to quickly fill in the images and that was pretty much the hardest part. For the front sentiment I just repeatedly stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment, trimmed it and then also added silver embossing powder to the edges. I also ended up doing the same silver embossing on the edge of the background panel. To finish this card I added a strip of silver foiled washi tape to the front centre and popped up the sentiment using some foam tape. SO easy!

Here is how I finished off the inside.

Classic White and Gold Christmas Cards

Classic White and Gold Christmas Cards

Hey everyone Dana Joy here.  I'm in my craft room loving making some simple cards for my friends.  Nothing is prettier to me than a classic white and gold Christmas card. The simplicity of the two colors really makes the design you use stand out.  I love adding just a touch of red and/or green to a classic Christmas card. Just don't overdo it.  Keep the majority of the card with a lot of white space and the let gold color be the next big punch of color.

For my card today I used the Fairy Christmas stamp set from Ink On 3 and the Kaleidoscope background stamp from Simon Says Stamp along with some princess gold embossing powder.  Since the bells and holly on this image are small I only have to use a small amount of color using my zig clean color real brush markers.  To add some detail to the card I used stitched dies to add faux stitching to the circle and the layering panel on my card. I popped up my sentiment with a circle of fun foam just to add some dimension to my card. Now of course I wanted to add just a few sequins to these cards.  I just had too.  LOL

Look how pretty that sentiment is.  I love the little jingle bells on each of the letters.  Stamping the background on half of the background allows the sentiment to standout and now be overwhelmed by the background design. 

Have a blessed Sunday everyone.  I'll see you back here tomorrow with another card.

Christmas Fairy

Hello crafters!
 I have been hit with a dreaded bug, and I'd wanted to get this card up, but being sick has had me delay it. Feeling better today, so getting this written up.

I used the new poinsettia fairy from the new release from InkOn3. Such a cute image, totally unique! Fleurette has her own style I've not seen in other stamp companies. I played with my new Spectrum Noir alcohol markers to color this. And I struggled with good blending until a team member reminded me about using X-Press It paper for coloring with these type markers. I remembered I had some, got it out, and re-colored. And it went so much easier! If you haven't tried this paper, and struggle, maybe you'd like it. It's VERY bright white but it isn't real sturdy/thick. I'm ok with that if I get better coloring results.

Here's my beautiful fairy.

I stamped and colored her on a piece of X-Press It paper for alcohol marker coloring. I then went through my other stamp sets and chose a few more images. I stamped them out, colored them, and then fussy cut them out. I arranged them as if the fairy is reaching for the bells. I added them with some dimensional adhesive for added dimension since the fairy is flat on the paper.  I added some sparkle to the jingle bells and some Glossy Accents over top to really shine. I added reg Stickles to the berries and gold to the flower centers. Adds some nice sparkle! Then I chose a few sequins from my stash and scattered those around. I stamped the sentiment and cut with a die. It was also added with foam tape. 

I hope you like my pretty fairy and will head over to InkOn3 to shop for some goodies! Here's a shopping list for you.

Head on over to the store and pick up some fun new goodies to play with. Lots of great sets for any medium to color or paint. Get out you things and have some fun crafting!

Fairy Christmas Slider Cards by Ilda

Hello Everyone, Ilda here!

Now that Halloween has come and gone and there are inches of snow outside it's time to switch gears and think of Christmas πŸ˜€ Can't believe how this year has flown by!!!

So today I'm sharing my first two Christmas Cards of the year! These cards feature Ink On 3's Fairy Christmas set and part of the latest release! As soon as I saw the Fairy Stamp I knew I had to make a card where it looked like she was flying in the air. So literally that is what I did... she does fly (well kind of, on a sliderπŸ˜‰) I just can't help making interactive cards!

Here is a look at the first card and how the fairy looks at the bottom and the top position of the card. I wanted it to look like she was adding a star to the top of the tree.

and here is a closer look at this beautiful Blue Fairy!
(Yes, I also challenged myself to use non traditional Christmas colors and I'm really happy with the results) Isn't she beautiful!?!

To finish off the inside of the card, I simply stamped the Merry Christmas stamp from the same set. I'm really loving that font too!

And, here is my second card featuring the Pink Poinsettia Fairy! 

The Fairies were both colored using Spectrum Noir markers and finished with some sparkle using Wink of Stella. The backgrounds including the trees were done using Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors.

Make sure you watch my YT process video cause you won't believe how those trees were made! Also, see click HERE for a complete list of supplies used.

Here is a closer look at all the detail... check out the fussy cutting I did around the fairy 😲 Not hard to do with the right tools!

Sugar Skull Card

Today I am sharing a simple card I made.  I had some fun with this and made it a shaker card and added some fun zig-zag stitching to it using my sewing machine.  I used the stamp set from Ink On 3 called Sugar Skull.  The skull was inked and embossed with black embossing powder and very simply colored. I love the sequins and clear droplets in it and the pretty sparkly paper.  So girly!  :)

There are so many other cute stamps with this set and the coordinating FREE Digi Die Cuts make the stamping easy! 
I had some fun using a bunch of my different colored embossing powders!  This stamp doesn't necessarily have to be colored in, sometimes simple is good too!

Thanks for stopping by to take a look and make sure to check out all the other great stamps at Ink On 3!

Mariner Mermaid

Hey everyone, I have a quick card to share with you today using the super cute mermaid image from Fleurette's last release. I'm a little late with this but better late than never! Life got crazy for a bit, lol. 
Anyway, let's get to it.

I used a die from my stash, Stamps Of Life I believe, and cut it from some watercolor paper. I then stamped the mermaid on the largest piece and several of the other elements onto the smaller pieces. I then went about to color them.

I took the frame piece and smooshed VersaMark ink all over and embossed with silver embossing powder. I wanted it to look like metal. Instead of using acetate for my shaker window, I used tule. I've done this many times, as I find all my shaker bits stick so bad from static and I'm not a fan of that, lol! 

Plus, I like the texture it gives. I added all my shaker bits and adhered the frame to a white card base. I then took the other images I colored and glued them into the squares they came from. 

I stamped out the sentiment and embossed with silver embossing powder as well. I mounted it to a piece of white and then dimensional adhesive to the front of the card. 

I hope you got a bit of inspiration today. Keep watching as new things coming! Another release just came out and I'm working on projects using those products. Cool stuff. You won't wanna miss it!

Jellyfish Friends Card by Ilda

Hey All, Ilda here!

Today  I have a really quick and simple friendship card to share with you featuring  Ink On 3's Mariner Mermaid stamp set.

For this card I used my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors to create is beautiful water like background. Next I stamped out my Jellyfish on vellum and embossed them using gold powder. Then I fussy cut the images and attached them to the card front using some clear double sided glue pads. The rest of the card is pretty self explanatory and as you can see for an extra gold touch I added gold embossing powder along the edge to the blue layer of card stock.

Hope this simple card design has inspired you today.

Thinking of You Card by Ilda ft. Waterlily Stamp Set

Hello, Ilda here... and I'm back again today with another DT project for Ink On 3. 

Today's card features the Waterlily Stamp set from the new release.
For this card I wanted to use my watercolors, as the scene I wanted to create was on water and I wanted a fluid feel to it. To create the scene I had to do a bit of masking for each image. I used versamark to stamp and then embossed each image and heat set it with a white embossing powder. Once I was done that, I pulled out my Jane Davenport Bright palette and had fun coloring the waterlilies and the background in.

Thinking of You Card - Ink On 3's Waterlily Stamp Set

To create the vellum strip overlay, I first stamped the sentiment with versamark and then heat set it with the same white embossing powder. Next, I ran the vellum strip through the sizzix machine using the scalloped edge die along the bottom and used my paper trimmer on the top. I then wrapped the strip around the bottom half of the finished waterlily panel securing the ends to the back with adhesive. Before I attached the panel to the A2 sized card base, I sandwiched a piece of  craft foam in between to add a little height and dimension. Lastly, I added my clear drops to the sentiment strip.

Don't you just love the Thinking of You Sentiment!? I'm in love with that beautiful font 😍
Here's a close up of it.

Mariner Mermaid Card by Ilda

Hello friends, Ilda here again taking over Fleurette's Blog!

So have you ever seen a sexier mermaid stamp?! I sure haven't... Wowzers 😜

This beauty comes from Ink On 3's latest release! For this card, I didn't want to stamp the mermaid in black ink and I really didn't want to do a no line watercoloring. So I thought I would experiment by stamping the image out using frayed burlap oxide ink and I love the results. The stamped line once it came in contact with the watercolors oxidized and lightened the lines giving it a semi no line watercolor look. 

To color the mermaid in, I used my Tombow Dual brush markers. Once she was dry I then fussy cut the entire image out. This is a fairly large stamp so it wasn't as difficult as it looks but I did need the help of my retractable PenBlade.

To create the background I wet the paper and then lightly touched the wet areas with Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers. These colors are so vibrant a little goes a long way. Just before the area dried I then used my distress spray bottle to splash and spread the ink around. I repeated that a few times with different colors, using by heat tool to help speed up the drying process. Once the entire background was done and dry I sprayed the background again this time picking up the droplets with paper towel.

To finish the card I then attached some jewelry chain to the anchor and used a metal wire to secure it to the top of the card panel, bending and taping the wire to the back to secure it in place. I then attached it to the A2 sized cardbase. I did not glue the mermaid down as I wanted her to swing freely on the front of the card. (see previous image)

Here is a closer look at the details 😍

Hope you were inspired by this Mariner Mermaid Card today.
Don't forget you can pick up the latest release that is on SALE now, plus you also get FREE shipping  for a limited time!

A Pumpkin Boo Shaker Card ~ Clear Stamps

Hello Everyone, 
Ilda here from the Ink on 3 DT!!!
Can you believe Halloween is less than a month away!?  
Where has this year gone😲

Today I have a fun Halloween Shaker card to share with you featuring a few stamps sets from Inkon3, formerly know as FB Stamps. Click here for links to supplies used.

To create this little scene I began by stamping and masking my pumpkins, on the smaller pumpkins I actually masked off their entire face as I just wanted the larger one to be in the spotlight. I then colored the images in using spectrum Noir markers and then fussy cut the entire image cluster.

Next I went to work on my background. To create the moon, I cut out a circle from masking paper using a circle die. Then I used the negative of  the circle cut out to mask the panel. I blended out the moon first and then masked it off once it was dry. Then I removed the negative piece and blended out the rest of the background. Once I was done, I sprayed it with water and used a paper towel to soak up the droplets leaving behind the illusion of a starry night sky. Then I stamped a few fly away bats to the background.

To finish the card I created the top panel using a Studio Katia die, then added acetate behind it to create the top of the shaker sandwich. Next, I added foam tape behind the border and added sequins. Finally I added my pumpkins to the card front and made  the little Boo tag that I attached to the top center of the card.

Doesn't it look like the pumpkin is really scared when the shaker card is in motion?

I kept the inside quite simple with just the Happy Halloween sentiment.

Hope this Pumpkin Boo Shaker card inspired you today, or at least got you thinking of Halloween fun.
