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.

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.
Hey there! It’s #TexturalTuesdays over in The CLASSroom and I have a new post showing how to Make Your Own Stencil. In my post I simply use Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies and acetate. So super easy.
I made the card below using the stencil I created from acetate, the Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Holiday Words by Julie Ebersole ,with a little texture paste, and some glitter for shimmer.
Please be sure to check out the post in The CLASSroom for the full details on how to Make Your Own Stencil (and please don’t be mad when you see how easy it is. HAHHA!!) The great thing about using your favorite dies is that the possibilities are endless.
To give the card added texture, the Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Stitches Cover Plate by Julie Ebersole was used on a piece of Bazzill Card Shoppe Wax Lips Cardstock and the edges were then distressed. I love doing this.
The key in making anything? Is to make what you love. Same goes with stencils, I suppose. And I had a great time making this card. I hope it shows. ♥
Thank you SO much for joining me today and for checking out my how-to in The CLASSroom. I do appreciate every one of you. xo

Yay!! The Design Team of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® is taking part in a Blog Hop with Lawn Fawn this week! And today is day TWO! Make sure to visit the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog AND the Lawn Fawn Blog each day for a chance to win prizes and to be inspired by the designers for each team. (Even me.)
The card I made above, for the Blog Hop with Lawn Fawn, uses beautiful patterned paper from the Perfectly Plaid Petite Paper Pack. And also the sweet Let’s Polka In the Meadow Collection Pack. It’s still super hot here in Nevada, so the beautiful colors in these collections reminds me of a desert sunset OR sunrise.
I, personally, love Big Hugs! How about you? :)
Use the Big Scripty Words Lawn Cuts and die-cut the word “Big Hugs”. Adhere the die-cut using the Adhesive Sheets 4×6″. Stamp the birds from the Big Scripty Words stamp set, color with watercolors, then die cut using the matching dies. Add dimension to the birds with 3D Foam Squares – White Mix.
Attach the sequins using the Dodz Adhesive Dots Mini. They stay in place perfectly with no glue or tackiness showing through. The E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser is my very favorite adhesive to use for flat surfaces and that’s what I used to adhere the white cardstock to the card base, and the plaid paper to the white cardstock.
Please don’t forget there’s a giveaway with our Blog Hop with Lawn Fawn so be sure to comment every day for your chance to win. And check out the Lawn Fawn blog for TONS more inspiration.
I have some of the supplies used in the project above, linked below. Some affiliate links are used.
Enjoy the rest of today’s Blog Hop With Lawn Fawn and make sure to scroll UP for my SECOND post of today!! #TexturalTuesdays ! I’m getting Fuseable. ;)
Sorry for the absence. While I’ve had some things posted here and there I’ve also had a lot of things going on in my personal life. A huge loss in my life. This has been a really difficult time. :( And, I haven’t been the only one to suffer a loss. It’s been a rough month. I thought it only fitting to make a Sympathy Card for my post on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog today.
As usual I have a tutorial for this Sympathy Card. And I’m using some of the brand new Gelatos® too. They are really beautiful. So creamy, blendable, and the colors are incredibly saturated. You will all just LOVE them!
I wish so many people didn’t need Sympathy Cards right now, but the good news is, is that cards like the one above are pretty easy to make a few of (mix up the design a little) and have on hand.
Wishing you all love, laughter, and peace.
**The stamp set that I used is from Technique Tuesday and is called You’re So sweet, if you’re interested in purchasing.**
