Team Tuesdays and A Winner


Welcome to Team Tuesdays. This is Susan Wymer. Happy belated birthday to Rabbit Hole Designs! I will get to the cards after I announce the winner of the My Sweet Petunia gift certificate. Please email hello@mysweetpetunia.com and put Rabbit Hole Designs Hop winner in the subject line.

The winner of the $50 gift card to The Rabbit Hole Designs is: 


Have fun shopping Barbara!

So for the card above, I used Just Cake and Happy Birthday. I first stamped the cake with my MISTI and then colored it with my Copics. I stamped the Happy Birthday - don't you love that script - with Versafine Onyx Black and heat embossed with clear embossing powder to give the sentiment some shine. I added Wink of Stella Clear Shimmer and Glossy Accents to the cake to add some shine. I fussy cut it out and popped it up on 3M foam dots. 

This card you absolutely need a MISTI. I created the background using all the sentiments from Blended Sentiments. First, let me apologize for my dirty MISTI but as I see it, a dirty MISTI is a loved and well-used MISTI. I lined up the card stock on my MISTI. I do have an old Silhouette mat on top of my mouse pad. I laid out the stamps on the MISTI for the first round of stamping. I used Gina K Designs Warm Glow Amalgam Ink.

for stamping this background. I stamped the first round and then set up my MISTI again to fill in the blanks. 

You can see in the above picture that I reset the sentiments after the first stamping. I continued this throughout the stamping process. I trimmed this panel down to 4" x 5.25" and mounted it onto an A2 sized card. I colored in my poor tired bunny with my Copics. 

For the third card, I used the Open Heart stencil to make a Gel Press print using gold and red acrylic paints. I used Waffle Flower's A7 Layers die cuts to make the panel and back panel. All of this was mounted on a 5" x 7" Neenah Solar White 110 lb card stock.

Happy Birthday to The Rabbit Hole Designs + Giveaway!

 Hi friends! Lydia here today with a birthday celebration of our friends over at The Rabbit Hole Designs! This coffee-loving company with just the right amount of snark turns TWO today, so we have lots of fun in store for you, including a $50 gift card to our store and theirs for two lucky commenters! We will announce the Rabbit Hole Designs winner on our winners page and on the blog on Tuesday!

But let's celebrate with - A RABBIT. Or maybe two! This adorable stamp set is one of two new ones today, and I couldn't resist a little watercolor! I decided to make my bunnies blue, in tribute to my childhood fascination with the Blue Bunny ice cream brand. I actually thought there WAS a blue bunny somewhere at that company for many years as a tot! I used my Daniel Smith watercolors from my split group, and die cut the scene with circle infinity dies. The sentiment is from the same set - so sweet and so perfect for a Valentine. The colors I used are all from my curated "Lydia" split in the split group - Manganese Blue Hue, Phthalo Blue Green Shade, Rhodonite, Green Apatite and Phthalo Yellow Green. I painted it on cold press watercolor paper. To get the cheek blending so soft, I just did wet on wet  watercolor. What a sweet image. 

Here are all the supplies I used today and stay tuned below for more inspiration and our giveaway!

Friends Make Life Better

Hi everyone,
Ilina here! Today I am sharing a card that combines few products from different companies and I am very pleased how it turned out!
I used Gel Press and a stencil from Picket Fence Studios (along with few distress oxide inks) to create my background. I put my Gel Press plate on top of my MISTI which allowed me to move it around easier and apply the ink and spread it with the brayer much easier. 
Once I created the background, I prepared the rest of the elements, the branch die cuts using My Favorite things die and the Strip sentiments and die set from Taylored Expressions.
To assemble the panel I cut down the gel press print to 4" x 5 1/4" adhered the die cuts and the sentiment and to finish it off I added several Honey Bee gems!! Using craft foam adhered to white note card!

Floral Love No-Line Watercoloring with Channin

Hello friends! It's Channin here and today I have no-line watercolored floral card to share! This clean and simple card features the gorgeous Floral Love Stamp Set from Hero Arts!

To create this card I first arranged my stamps from the Floral Love Stamp Set into my MISTI and then stamped them in Fadeout Ink onto an A2 panel of Bristol paper. I then watercolored the floral letters in with several Tombow Dual Brush Pens (025, 723, 925, 126, 245).

When I had finished coloring the letters I then popped my panel back into my MISTI, removed the floral letter stamps, and then stamped and gold heat embossed the “sending”. After I had heat set the sentiment, I then die cut the panel down with rectangle die. I then finished the card by adhering the panel onto the front of a Mustard A2 top-folding card base with foam adhesive. 

I hope you enjoyed my card! Thank you so much for stopping by!
