Team Tuesday with Jeanne Streiff

Happy Tuesday!!!

I found a new trick to share today for easy ink blending directly on a stamp. I placed the Polka Dot Grunge stamp from Picket Fence Studios onto my Mini MISTI and inked a section with Wild Honey Oxide ink. Tap the edge with a Life Changing Blender Brush to soften the edge of the ink. Wipe brush clean on a paper towel.

Repeat inking and tapping off with the blender brush with Peacock Feathers Oxide
ink and Gathered Twigs Oxide ink. Pretty, huh? So easy too!

Next I stamped a chicken from One Hot Chick from Picket Fence Studios, watercolored and then cut out using the coordinating dies. I used my Cut-Align to cut my sentiment and then tore the edge.

Here's a closer look at the finished card.

Have a great day!

Altenew Hope

Have you ever just looked in your collection of stamps and just think, " If I stamped everyday for the rest of my life, I won't ever use every single stamp I own."  I do that all the time.  It still does not deter me from buying more stamps.   So I just picked a stamp and stamped away.

Hope you enjoy this video!!

Team Tuesday with Giovana and Blog Hop Winner!!

Hello friends!

Today I have a perfect sunny caffeinated card!

Stamping Friends Trifecta Blog Hop

Hello everyone, welcome to the Trifecta Blog Hop. We have a big hop today, so a lot of eye candy for everyone to see.

Today's hop is brought to you by:
Each company participating in the hop will be giving away a $50.00 gift card to their store, randomly drawn from the comments at each stop on the hop. So, there will be three (3) gift cards in total.
Winners will be announced on the three (3) company blogs on June 7th.

First of all I would like to say that my blog aplaceforkia.com is down due to unforeseen circumstances. I am pleased to be posting on the My Sweet Petunia blog so I can still show you what I made for today.
Now, on to my cards.

First up is the card I made using Picket Fence Stamps called  Dandelion Wishes.
I first made an alcohol ink background with soft circles on glossy card stock. In my Mini Misti I then stamped the sentiment and Dandelion using Ranger Archival Ink in Monarch Orange and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
I matted the panel with coordinating card stock, and added a few gumdrops to finish.
I also did the inside with the left overs from the front panel, cutting them with my Cut-Align ruler, and attaching to the matting pieces. I stamped the sentiment again using the Monarch Orange ink and attached it to the panel for a different look.

Next up is the card I did using Gina K. Designs Stamp Set and papers from the new set called Elegant Asters. I started by stamping the images in my mini Misti, all the images fit on the piece of water colour paper I was using.
I stamped using different colours of ink, the butterfly using VersaFine Clair Nocturne, the flowers done with VersaMark ink and the leaves stamped with Distress Ink Twisted Citron. All the pieces were heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
I did a loose water colour on the Asters, first using Mustard Seed, then adding Peacock Feathers, and used the same colours on the leaves. I also did the sentiment the same way, first adding the Mustard Seed, then the Peacock Feathers. 
I die cut the card stock that was included in the set. On the front of the card I stenciled over the yellow piece using my Sunflower Ink. 
I put the card together and added the flowers using foam squares for two of the flowers, then added Nuvo Jewels to the flower centres, then promptly put my finger in it!
I did the same technique for the inside switching out the colours and using the Peacock Feathers for the stencil work and stamping the birthday greeting using Ranger Archival ink in Paradise Teal.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you have enjoyed these cards. 

Next up on the hop is Picket Fence Studios.
