Hi everybody! Lydia here to do a little Inktober collaboration between Hedgehog Hollow and Inkon3. I've made no secret of my love for Fadeout Ink for my no-line watercolor. Working with this new stamp set, and the companion stamp set here, I did a quick masking and watercoloring project. I stamped the poinsettia in Fadeout, masked it with this masking paper, stamped the leaves, masked them, and then finally stamped the cross over that. Then I removed all the masks and painted, which you'll see in the video below. I stamped the two separate sentiments (I cut the "a" off "wishing you a" to keep just wishing you) in Nocturne.

Seahorse Card

This cute card was created using stamp sets from 
Ink On 3.  Here are the sets I used:

The back ground was water colored using ink and water.  The white fishnet is a die cut that I cut several times to make it thick.  I stamped a mirrored image of the seahorse.  There are lots of videos on you tube that shows how to do this.  I added some clear dots to look like bubbles.

Happy Crafting!

Sneak Peek for 10/2018 Release...

Hello Crafters!

I'm up on the InkOn3 blog today. Showing a sneak peek of the new release coming the end of the week. Super cute holiday stamp sets and some amazing sentiments, too!

Here's what I did today.

I stamped out the images using Blackout ink. Then I colored them using my Copic markers. I cut them out with my Brother Scan N Cut, since I don't have the dies as of today. Love that machine, lol!

I stamped out the evergreens using some Altenew inks. I then used foam squares to pop up the flowers.
I cut the berry branch apart so I could use just the top berry part. Yep, stamp surgery!

I chose a sentiment and heat embossed it using the Chrome embossing powder and the Juicy embossing ink. I love this one as it is so so so shiny!!!

I filled the centers with some liquid glue and added some chunky, silver glitter I have in my stash. I adore this glitter so much! It really packs a wow.

I brushed over all the images using my Nuvo Shimmer brush pen. It adds so much shine but very difficult to capture in pics.

I chose a die from my stash and cut it with my Gemini Jr. I backed it with a lovely patterned paper from Lawn Fawn. Then I used some red fun foam and popped that onto a red card base.

How amazing is that Chrome embossing powder! My favorite, for sure.

I finished it off by adding some silver gems and couple of green ones.

And that's it! 
Here's your shopping list.

Studio Katia ~ Gems
Altenew ~ Inks

And there you have it. I hope you get a bit of inspiration from my posts. I not one of the fancy crafters, but I do think my cards look nice, lol. I'm not a real fussy crafter...I tend to keep things easy, but neat and well balanced. 

Pull out your supplies, fined some crafting time...and have some fun!

Ink On 3 Merry Christmas

Welcome to the blog today. I have a Christmas card to share using a past stamp release. 
Hope you like it!

I picked out the Merry Christmas sentiment stamp. Since it was all connected in length and I wanted it shorter, I cut it in half. Yes, you can do this, lol. Just put it back together next time you want it long again. No biggie!
Anyway, I used the GinaK wreath builder template to stamp out a wreath shape using this sentiment. I chose some Altenew inks and since they come in four shades, it worked perfect to get the ombre feel. 
I then chose a few more images to "fill in" around the words. I stamped the notes in a gold ink, Delicata brand, I believe. 

I also grabbed the star image and stamped it in a nice holiday red ink. 

To create the center piece, I stamped out the bow and bells with Juicy Embossing Ink and heat embossed using the Black As Night embossing powder. I then used the same red ink and the same Delicata gold ink, and my Wink of Stella glitter brush pen and colored in the image. I love doing this because you get the amazing sparkle and it is SO pretty!!! And it really made the bells appear metallic. 

I  grabbed a circle image from my stamp stash to kind of frame the image. I used the Blackout Hybrid Detail Ink for this. I then cut it with a circle die. I layered it onto a scalloped circle that I colored using the darkest ink pad, direct to the paper. Easy way to make your own colored paper, perfect match. 

Before adding the center point piece, I used a square, stitched die from my stash and cut the panel down and added it to a 4.25 square card base. 

I popped that up to the center of the panel using foam tape. 

To finish it off, I grabbed some sparkling black crystals from Honey Bee Stamps, and spread them all around the piece for that holiday sparkle! You get bits of gold, green, teal, and black. They are SO pretty. 

And that's it. Hope you like my project today and will come up with your own design. 
Here's your shopping list.

There you go....happy crafting!

Thinking Of You Card | Coloring With Distress Oxide Inks by Ilda

Hey everybody, Ilda here with you today from I Love Doing All things crafty 👋

Today I’m sharing a water coloured card using distress oxide inks, and featuring some of the older stamps sets from Ink On 3. I hadn't water colored for a while and I was missing it, happy I did because I am super happy with the bright and colorful results I got!

Thinking Of You Card | Coloring With Distress Oxide Inks by Ilda

To create this card I did some ink smooshing onto the card panel using three different distress oxide inks to create the rainbow like background. Once the panel was completely dry I stamped out the images using Juicy Ink and then heat set it with  Arctic White embossing powder. Next, I took the same colors that I smooshed onto my surface and used them to color in the details of the vase from the Posies Set and the flowers from the Roses in Bloom set by adding multiple layers of oxide pigment. I then flicked some splatters of paint for some added splashes of color onto the panel and then die cut it using a stitched scallop rectangle die. For the sentiments I used the Hello stand alone die from the Dogwood Flower set and die cut 3 pieces and stacked them together. I then added Juicy Ink to the top of the Hello and added a coat of Crystal Clear Powder to emboss it. Next, I stamped out the thinking of you sentiment from the Posies stamp set using Salty Ocean distress ink and again used the Crystal Clear powder to heat set the ink. Finished off the card by adding some sparkling sequins.

(Distress Oxides Used: Salty Ocean, Picked Raspberry and Squeezed Lemon)

Hope this very loosely colored water colored card has inspired you today!

Creating a Scene with Dance & Twirl

Hello Crafters.  I'm  Courtney, and I am super excited to be guest designing for Inkon3.  I am a colorist, mainly Copics, and I love creating scenes.  So today, I decided to create a scene using the Dance & Twirl stamp set along with the Fadeout Ink No Line Coloring Detail Ink

*** Be sure to scroll down to see the Youtube video on how I created this fun card *** :) 

I started by creating my scene with a pencil onto a piece of white card stock.  I knew I wanted these cuties to be on a stage.  I am not artistic in any way, so my scenes usually consist of straight lines and basic shapes.

Next, I stamped my images with the Fadeout Ink and colored them with my Copic Markers.  I was blown away with this ink, It is as if it melts right into the alcohol ink!

I fussy cut my images and popped them up onto my stage.  I added my sentiment and called this one done. (there are coordinating dies for this set, if you don't like fussy cutting)

For more information on this card, you can check out the video below:
