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!

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.

Happy Halloween Birthday!

Hello there!  Today I am sharing a DT project with you for Ink On 3.  Do you know anyone with a Birthday on Halloween?  Combine the two with a card like this using Ink on 3's Go Batty stamp set

 The bats are stamped with a VersaMark stamp pad and then embossed with black embossing powder.  Make sure to use the Go Batty Digi makes things so much easier!  They are free with your stamp purchase!

The background paper is printed using the Go Batty Digi Paper Pack.  I used purple, orange and yellow ink to create the blended background.

I used the Halloween Card Kit and sized it down to fit the bat from the stamp set.  Foam pop dots add dimension to the bats.  To add some shimmer and fun, I used sequins and a glitter pen.

Have a great day and an even better day crafting!

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.

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.
