Ink Week

Hey there! It’s Ink Week over on the CLASSroom blog for Ellen Hutson and I’m so lucky to be able to feature Distress Inks on this #TexturalTuesday.

I had so much fun making this card. Lots of ink blending and the addition of Texture Paste. Very textural.

Let me show you the card and then tell you a little bit more about Ink Week.

Using the gold to bring out the colors underneath was something I’m hoping I pulled off. To me, being able to see the full image isn’t important, but to make the card/colors/imagery make you feel something. I hope that makes sense. This is one of the reasons I love mixed media so much. It’s not what you necessarily see, but what you feel that’s important.

For how I made the card, all of the details are on the CLASSroom blog. There are lots of photos and information for you, if you’d like to replicate the card.

Ellen is also doing a full-on Ink Week! All of the designers are featuring a different ink and how we use them in our posts. Not only that, she is running a wonderful promotion.

Click on the image above to be taken directly to the sale. I hope that you’ll take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to stock up on your inks!

This Ink Week is going to feature a lot of different ways to use your inks and many different styles so stay tuned for the whole week.

I’m including all of my supplies below for my project, some were purchased by me and some were provided for promotional purposes. These ARE affiliate links so if you choose to shop using the links below I do earn an itty-bitty commission from your purchase. This keeps me running! xo

Happy 2017

Happy 2017!! Wait what? Okay so, it’s not quite 2017 YET! But I did make a very cool Happy 2017 card that’s on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today. You really should check it out. 

Let me show you a very quick peek at the card. And then you have to head over to their blog to get all of the nitty-gritty details on how I made it. Sound good?

The stamp set and die are both from Essentials by Ellen and are called Advent (designed by Julie Ebersole). All of those  luscious sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh.

For close ups of this card, please head over to the Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L® blog. Using the Keepsake Envelopes make any card special and can be used in so many amazing ways.

I wish you all a very happy and healthy 2017.

Winter Scene Card

Hi  there! I have a beautiful Winter Scene card that I created for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® on their blog today.  I bet you never thought you could create a Winter Scene Card using adhesives, huh? Well, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® makes some fabulous foam shapes, too, as you’ll see in my card below.

Aren’t those trees and snowflakes cute?

The versatility of the 3D Foam line of products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® is what makes them so popular. The shapes can be used with foil, glitter, and can also be heat embossed!! No kidding.

This sweet Winter scene was created using foil and glitter for my 3D Foam shapes, but I also utilized glitter paper and beautiful patterned paper from Lawn Fawn. The fun scalloped rectangle shape behind by scene is a Lawn Fawn die, too.

If my little sticker words can’t be read they are “Winter”, “Frosty”, “Snowflakes”, and “Glisten”. For more information and more photos, please check out the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog post for today.

Wishing you and yours a VERY Merry Christmas.

All That Glitters

Hey! It’s the last #TexturalTuesdays post in the CLASSroom for Ellen Hutson before Christmas and All That Glitters is the card I made today. :)

Today’s card features some beautiful glitter from Elizabeth Craft Designs, Distress Glitter, and Glitter Tape to make a “present”. Super easy and super fun!

Most people tend to think of using glitter as messy. Using glitter in this way leaves it feeling almost velvety smooth with almost no fallout. And so incredibly shiny!

The full tutorial for this All That Glitters card is on the CLASSroom blog, so I encourage you to check it out for further photos, steps, and ideas.

The stamp set that I have used is an exclusive to Ellen Hutson.com and is part of the Holiday 2016 Release. It is called Season to Sparkle and it was designed by über talented Julie Ebersole. If you are interested in any of the products that I used to make today’s card I always try to list them below. (They are affiliate links and I will make a small commission from each purchase that you make through me — thank you. )

So many things to wrap up before Christmas gets here…oops! Bad pun! But I hope that you enjoy today’s card and will head over and check out the full post to really see how I made the card today.

Thank you as always for taking the time to stop by. xo

This card is created by embossing the “Peace on Earth” first and then doing the watercoloring. And additional stamping is done after so it is more subtle, but still seen. The white dots were stamped, but weren’t bright enough. I didn’t want them heat embossed so I just went over them with a white gel pen. (Some have a white pearl on top as an added embellishment.)

When completing the card and adding embellishments, sequins and rhinestones are used to keep the effect rather ethereal.

Here is a close up for you:
