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.
