Biker Bunny Birthday Card inkon3 Clear Stamps

Hi, Fleurette here today, I had so much fun creating this card for a dear friends birthday. She loves motorcycling, so I thought this would be perfect for her!  
To create this card I used the Biker Bunnies & Phat Alpha Numeric clear stamp sets by and the amazing Blackout Ink that works perfect for Copics as it's waterproof, plus it a super rich black, dries to the touch instantly too!  So no smearing Yay!!! 

I Copic colored all the images, then fussy cut them out,  I then glued the bunny and chick on the motorcycle. I added some foam tape to the back to give dimension and they happily popped a wheelie!   I added the heart balloon from the Snow Buddies clear stamp set and  Happy Birthday sentiment from the Lilac Dreams clear stamp set I love the sentiments on this set and the flower is always fun to use as well. 
I have to admit, she was delighted to get such a personalized card :) 

This would make a great guy card too, by just coloring the jacket a different color. 
Great for Fathers Day too as there is a Happy Fathers Day sentiment on the Biker Bunny set too! 

Thanks for "hopping" in!

You're A Gem...

I have another card to share from the new release over at InkOn3. These new products are so darn cute and so fun to play with! I know you're gonna love them as well. So, let's get started. 
There's a bundle price as of this posting, and you are not gonna want to miss out!

So, lets get to my project for today. I knew when I saw this release I wanted to make a slider card. I mean, come on, these guys are just adorable! So I chose the dragons with their noses pointed down a bit and stamped them out using our Blackout ink. This is great ink! Very black, dries VERY fast, doesn't smear and doesn't stain! I then colored them using my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

I cut a front panel of white card stock and used a stencil from my stash and lightly inked on some pale blue ink. I did a second one the same so when I die cut the slider channel it looked the same below. I used a die from Ellen Hutson to cut my channel. I then positioned the two slider elements from MFT in the channel, added a tiny scrap of cardstock above and below the sliders, and glued using Glossy Accents, and then glued the dragon to the top of that. You have to add the bits of cardstock or the slider elements would fall right out of the channel, as they are smaller. That cardstock holds them from just falling out. 

I then stamped out several of the gems and colored them in gem colors, lol. I cut them out, brushed some sparkle pen over the tops, and coated in Glossy Accents so they looked more real. I "piled" them up using foam tape so it looks like the dragon is diving right in! 
I then positioned the other dragon as if he's curious about what's going on, and used foam tape to  adhere in place. 
I stamped the sentiment into a banner end and added some glitter paper to ground it a bit. I used that same glitter paper to back the front panel. It's a pad I found at Hobby Lobby, I believe.  I added the sentiment with foam tape as well. 

I wanted some "gems" to scatter around but didn't have colors I wanted. So, I pulled out the crystal clear ones and stuck several to a piece of tape to hold in place. I then pulled out alcohol markers in the colors I wanted and colored them. Left them to dry for just a bit. A cool trick if you ever need to know! Works great. 

How fun is this card? He slides right down into a pile of brightly colored gems! And his buddy is checking it all out, lol. I scattered the gems around and glued in place using my Art Glitter Glue. I love that adhesive! I added the glitter paper to the back of the front panel and added the entire piece to an A2 sized card base. I use Neenah 110 pound cardstock. It's nice and heavy. 

So there you have it! What do you think? Cute, huh! It's so fun making him slide up and down. It's one of those style cards that the recipient will get a big smile from. My fellow DT sister, Ilda, is a genius at these kind of cards. She's such an inspiration to me! Check her out, I Love Doing All Things Crafty, is her blog.

To finish this off, I added Glossy Accents to their eyes, and set aside to completely dry. 

I hope you got a bit of inspiration today. Maybe give it a go at an interactive card of your own. They are really fun. For me, it just takes really planning it out and how to make it work. Not really that hard, just takes a bit more thought. And visit Ilda's blog, she has great ideas for you!

Have a Magical Day...

Welcome to my post and to the newest release from InkOn3. And it's a great one! Check this out!!!
Fleurette has outdone herself with this one. AND...there are now dies! How cool is that? So we have Magic Dragons and the coordinating dies and we have Phat Alphanumeric stamp set and Phat Alphanumeric dies. These are so fun to play with. Check out the bundle that's available as of this posting. 

So, let's get on to the card I made for today. I kept it simple for this one, but Monday I'll have a super fun card so you need to come back then and check it out.

I LOVE these little dragons and it was hard to choose which to play with. But, I ended up with the one that's flying. 

I started out by stamping this little guy with our Blackout ink. This ink is amazing! It's super black, very crisp, works with any coloring medium, and it dries almost immediately and doesn't smear! Plus, it doesn't stain your stamp either. I then colored him using my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I cut him out using my Scan n Cut, as I don't have the dies yet. I then pulled out some google eyes that fit and stuck them on. 

I went on to stamp my sentiment on vellum using our Juicy ink. I embossed using white embossing powder and trimmed it to a narrow strip. 

I pulled out some patterned paper from my stash. This is from Lawn Fawn. I adore their papers! I cut this using their 4 bar sized rectangle dies. It makes for a very nice little note size card. I like making this size when I'm using a smaller image or when keeping the card very clean and simple.

I wrapped the sentiment strip around the front panel and taped on the back side. Vellum is hard to hide adhesive and this works great.

Now, I love cards that are a bit interactive. They are so fun! So, on the backside of this little guy, I stuck on a Mini Action Wobbler. These are so fun and with a flick of your finger, he wobbles as if he's about to take off and fly! It's really fun, and hard to stop playing with it, lol. 

I took this front panel and using tape runner, I added it to the 4 bar card base. 
It measures 3 1/2 x 4 7/8.
I pulled out some gems to match and scattered a few around. They add such fun sparkle! I believe these are from Studio Katia

So, that's it for today. I hope you'll head over to InkOn3 and check out this release and all the other great items in the store. 

Pull out your supplies and have fun crafting!

Happy Stamping!

Make a Wish Birthday Action Wobbles Card ft. Magic Dragons

Hello Friends!

Today I have a super cute card to share with you all featuring one of Ink On 3's newest Stamp sets, Magic Dragons. How cute is that little dragon?!
Even cuter when you see it move!

For this card I thought it would be fun to make it look like rainbow rays were shooting out from the candle's flames. To create the rays I made a stencil out of a plastic sleeve (cutting a long "V" like slit toward a center point that I had marked in the middle of the plastic sheet). I then used my plastic template to blend out each distress oxide ink onto some bristol paper. I wiped the plastic off after each color and rotated the template to line up with the previous color. Then I just repeated the process over again until the rainbow was complete.

Next, I die cut the panel using a square stitch frame. Then I stamped the candle, making sure the flame was centered over rainbow's vertex and also stamped out my sentiment. To the flame and the candle I added some sparkle pen and then added glossy accents. I then stamped out the dragon using Blackout ink and then colored it in with Spectrum Noir Markers. Once it was all colored, in I fussy cut the image out and mounted this cutie on a mini action wobbles spring. I finished it off by embellishing the card with some flat sequins and voila, done!

Make sure you follow me on Instagram so you can see this cutie in action πŸŽ₯

Hope this bright Make a Wish Birthday Action Wobbles Card has inspired you a little today!

Quick Easter Card ft. Fadeout No Line Coloring Ink

Hello Friends, Ilda here!

I can't believe it's the first day of March already, before you know it Easter will be here! So I thought I would begin the Month with a quick Easter Card 🐣

For this card, I experimented with the new Fadeout ink from InkOn3.
This ink truly has magical properties as the stamped lines take on the color that you apply next to them. Making No line coloring super simple and fun!

Quick Easter Card ft. Fadeout No Line Coloring Ink from InkOn3

Here are a few tips that I found helpful when using the Fadeout ink.

  1. Make sure your stamp is squeaky clean (any ink residue from the stamp will transfer that color to the image being stamped).
  2. Less is more. Avoid using too much water. If you do, the water may bleed out the stamped line creating a thicker blurred line.  

I also used the new Blackout Ink on the inside of the card. I love this ink! It dries almost instantly which allows you to begin coloring right away, plus it doesn't stain your clear stamps!
