New Atelier Inks - Inspiration Week, Day 6: 3 Different Cards

Welcome to Ink on 3's new ink inspiration week! Every day, we'll be sharing projects here on the blog so make sure you visit us daily for new projects and inspiration. Also, if you leave a comment on this blog post, you'll have a chance to win a $25 gift card. We will announce the winner between November 7-10. 

At the end of the week, we will be having an instagram hop on October 30, 2020 and we'll be giving away THREE $25 gift cards. Keep your eyes peeled! Be sure to visit us over on Instagram to leave a comment for a chance to win. 


For today's blog post, we have Ilda and Ceal each sharing a fun project. 

For my card today, Ilda wanted to showcase how these colors blended and fit into the rainbow. So of course she had to make a rainbow card (my favorite kind). She began by blending out SWEET PETUNIAMARILYN REDMARIGOLD ORANGEBEE STING YELLOWGODDESS GREENTRINITY TEALPEACOCK BLUE, and MY PURPLE JAM Atelier Inks onto a piece of Bristol paper. She then sprayed the background with water and picked up the water droplets with a paper towel.



Once the paper was dry, she used an antistatic powder bag to prepare the paper for embossing. Then she stamped out the inside details of the butterfly wings from the SHINE BRIGHT set using the ATELIER SHARK TOOTH White ink, and heat set it by adding some ARCTIC WHITE POWDER

Next, she stamped the outer image of the butterfly using BLACKOUT INK. To the inside of each butterfly, she then painted on some LIQUID PIXIE DUST.



To finish off this colorful card, she stamped the sentiment onto a black banner once again using the ATELIER SHARK TOOTH White ink, and heat set it using some ARCTIC WHITE POWDER

------- 

For Ceal's project, she used the BeYoutiful stamp set along with the new inks. She ink blended the background and then used some water to splatter. Atelier Inks are water reactive, so you can create a fun textured background. 

Don't you love when the colors blend together? It creates such a nice hue! 

--------------------------

We also have Erica on the blog sharing TWO last gorgeous cards. Here's here thoughts! 

It's Erica on the Ink On 3 blog today with a couple of cards made with the stunning new Atelier Ink colours Trinity Teal and Sweet Petunia Pink. If you haven't seen any of the other posts this week, with all the projects from the DT, make sure you check them out too! 

I love water colouring with my re-inkers so I decided to do some ombre backgrounds to really let each colour be the star of the card.




Each piece was done by simply swooshing the colours back and forth on water colour paper, starting with clean water first. Then going from bottom towards the top, letting the colour fade to get that ombre look. I'm such a fan of ombre, it's such a fab way to see the different shades you can get from one single colour. 


I did use my heat tool to speed up the drying, as I did several layers of the colours to get a really deep colour at the bottom. To adhere these to white card bases I used LOTS of glue, and I also let them dry with a MISTI on top, to keep them flat. When they were totally dry, I splattered them both with gold water colours to add a bit of extra pizzazz! 


To finish off the cards I used the light string from the brand new Crafty Meriaki collaboration set, Shine Bright, as well as a sentiment from it. The lights were coloured in with yellow Copics and then I added some Glossy Accents to make them look more 3D. 


The pink card I thought would look cute as a love note, so I stamped 'You stole my heart' in Blackout Detail ink, from the Racoon Hugs. It needed a little something extra, which was solved by die cutting the 'kisses' from Bad & Boujee diecuts four times in white card stock. These were layered up and then simply added to the card at the bottom. 


I love the fact that with a gorgeous background, you don't need a ton of other stuff to make a card full of impact. 


That's it from me but I hope you like the cards and found some inspiration here with me today!

Lots of love and happy crafting from Erica

For today's blog post, we have Lynnea and Ricky sharing a fun project. 



Check out Ricky's video he made using the new Atelier inks: 

Lynnea is also here to share her fabulous card using the new inks. 

Her card today features some pretty ink blending with the new Sweet Petunia Pink and Trinity Teal Atelier Inks. Her thoughts: 

I just love the new colors of Atelier Ink! I wanted to show both of them off since they pair so well. I masked off the top portion of my card and blended on Sweet Petunia Pink Atelier Ink onto the bottom portion of my card. These Atelier Inks blend so smoothly! They're just gorgeous. I moved my masking tape to cover the bottom of my card and started working on the top portion. I blended the Trinity Teal Atelier Ink in quarter of an inch strips with half an inch of white space separating them. This is such a simple masked design, but I just love it! I kept the masking tape in place over the pink bottom and added some black ink spatters to the top for more texture. 




I used Blackout Hybrid Detail Ink to stamp the cute little peeking kitty and party hat from the Purr-ific Kitty Cats Stamp Set and colored them with Copic Markers. I trimmed around the outside of the images with my scissors leaving a small white border. I adhered them onto my card with foam tape so that he would be peeking over the pink "edge" of my card and added a stamped sentiment below the image. 



I thought I had a bit too much Sweet Petunia Pink blended at the bottom of my card and the balance was off, so I trimmed down my panel and added it onto a white card base. A bit of Liquid Pixie Dust on my little kitty finishes the card! 

She also has a video for you today as well:

Knockout Nibbles Encouragement Card

 I needed a quick, easy, and cute encouragement card for a friend who needs a "pick me up," so I reached for the InkOn3 Knockout Nibbles Stamp Set








Since this card has to get mailed across the country I thought it would be best to stretch myself and create a one layer card. It was hard, but I did it! Haha! I stamped the little critter and sentiments from the Knockout Nibbles Stamp Set onto a piece of white cardstock using Blackout Hybrid Detail Ink - my FAVORITE ink for Copic coloring! I used just a few colors of Copic markers to color in the little critter. 





Just because this is a one layer card doesn't mean it has to be boring! I grabbed a couple of coordinating Copic colors - yellow and blue - and just started dotting around my image. I did a big dot and then a bunch of little dots, another big dot and a bunch more little dots, and repeated with both colors until I had the look I wanted. 






It's not a card from me if it doesn't shimmer! I keep a bit of Liquid Pixie Dust in a Small Fine Tip Water Brush and painted on some magical shimmer onto the critter to finish the card! I hope you're inspired!

Watercolor Puddling with Atelier Ink Refills

Hello and thanks for stopping by! Today I'm happy to share a project with you using the Pumpkin Patch stamp set and Atelier Ink Refills from Ink on 3 to create a bold watercolor look.









The Pumpkin Patch stamp set is filled with Autumn awesomness! I love the large and open images, which are perfect for creating the watercolor puddling technique.
 
By dropping in color from the Atelier ink refills in a flooded image, the Atelier ink begins to swirl in the puddle of water. By allowing the watercolor paper to stay still and dry naturally, these swirls will remain intact and give the most unique results. It's a must try technique!
 
 Be sure to check out the video tutorial for a full process on coloring.









Here is an easy step by step how-to video for creating this card.

Halloween Pumpkin Card with Atelier Inks

Hooray for fall and Halloween! Atelier Inks are just perfect for solid stamping! They're smooth and crisp and everything wonderful! 










I grabbed my Pondie Stencil and temporarily adhered it to a piece of white cardstock and blended Blackout Hybrid Detail Ink over the stencil. This is my favorite ink for black ink blending - you get the same crisp and deep black color for ink blending that you get with stamping. It's amazing! And the Pondie Stencil is definitely not a Halloween Stencil, but I think it's spooky with the Blackout Hybrid Ink






Now it's time to bust out the Atelier Inks! I stamped my solid pumpkins with Marigold Orange, Bee Sting Yellow, and My Jam Purple, the leaves with Goddess Green, and the stems with Twiggy Brown. The inks are GORGEOUS! And they really pop against the black stenciled background! 






I die cut the pumpkins and added them to the front of my card with foam tape and added a sentiment that I stamped with Blackout Hybrid Detail Ink to the bottom of the card. That's all! Happy Halloween!

Quick and Easy Weekly Planner Layout

Hello Friends! It's Cheryl with the Inkon3 Creative Team here to show you a fast and easy planner layout! Sometimes I don't have a lot of time to do a super decorative planner layout, but I still want my planner pages to look good! I would say this layout would take at most 15-25 minutes!



First I cut eight sticky notes to 2" wide to 2.5" tall and laid them down on my planner pages, I'm using a B6 Traveler's notebook. You can cut the boxes to whatever size you'd like. 


Next, I used a pencil and drew dots on the closest dot grid of each corner of the sticky  note. If you don't have a grid, you can just draw a dot on each corner of your sticky note. Use a straight edge and black pen to connect the dots for your planner boxes.


Hand letter or use date stamps for the month and the days of the week. I drew in a dashed line next to the month, and solid lines next to the days of the week for a little more details.


Then I used the same sticky notes that were used to space my boxes to mask off the lower portion of each daily box. I stenciled in the lily pads from the Pondie Stencil using the Blackout Hybrid Ink and a blending brush. Repeat for all of your daily boxes.


For the eighth box, I masked around the whole box and stamped in the Koi and bubbles from the Koi Pond Clear Stamp set. Just for a little bit more accent, I drew in a thick line on the bottom of that box.


Add some simple black washi tape and there you have it! A really clean and simple, but very nice to look at weekly planner pages!

If the Shoe Fits

 


Hello Everyone!
It's Ceal here to share a card with you, today I am using the Heels to You set. 
I love this set and I love coloring it blue because it reminds me of the shoes my daughter wore on her wedding day. 

To create this card I started with a top folding white card base and a panel of Bristol. I stamped the image using the Fadeout ink for no line coloring and watercolored it using the Peacock Blue Atelier ink and Karin markers.  I masked off the shoe image and created a background using the Leafy Forest Stencil.
To finish the card I added the greeting from the Lilac Dreams set.

No Line Watercoloring with Fadeout Ink

Hello and thanks for stopping by! Today I'm happy to share a project with you using the BeYOUtiful stamp set and Fadeout ink from Ink on 3 to create a bold watercolor look.







The background is created on a die cut panel of Bristol paper. By first adding Peacock Blue Atelier Ink and then adding a coating of Goddess Green Atelier ink right over it, the colors mixed to create a beautiful new shade of aquamarine.
 
The BeYOUtiful stamp set has so many gorgeous images, don't you think? I chose to add a very deep color selection using the no line watercolor method. My favorite way to achieve this look is with Ink on 3's Fadeout Ink! The stamped lines blend in like magic and help to hide the stamped lines from the completely colored image.
 
Concentrating the darkest colors into the most shadowed area, I first added the purple and then moved progressively to a lighter shade of color, being sure to overlap the colors and allow them to blend on the paper. Finishing up the white areas with a vanilla colored ink/marker helped lend a warmth to the flowers. Be sure to check out the video tutorial for a full process on coloring.
