STAMPtember Tim Holtz Exclusive Stamp Set

Hello! I am SUPER excited today to be sharing a card with a new STAMPtember release -  the STAMPtember exclusive from Tim Holtz, a beautiful Christmas set that includes some incredibly fabulous stencils as well! I have a total of 5 cards to share with you using this set!


These stencils are SOOO amazing and fun! You use them one way, flip them around and line up the score marks, and then you can fill in the opposite direction to make stripes and plaids! Seriously brilliant! I did that in an ombre pattern on this card using several distress inks.


I then stamped on the sentiment and bird image in black ink, then used the rustic holly berry image around the border in Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide, added some Antique Linen to soften the edges, then did some machine stitching, and finally used my distress tool around the outer edges.


Next up I have two pairs of cards using the stamp set paired with alcohol inks and the fun new Alcohol Lift Ink:


The lift ink is so fun, as it allows you to "lift" the ink off of Yupo paper, then stamp it on white cardstock like I did here - so you end up with two separate cards!


I stamped my sentiment on the alcohol background with Stazon ink to make sure it would stay well on the Yupo paper.


I followed the same process on these two, just different colors. On all the white backgrounds, I added some gold splatters with my Starry Colors Palette.


On all four of these cards, I cut out a small strip diagonally with my paper trimmer, then reversed them on each card. 


The alcohol ones I added some jute string, using my Tiny Attacher to hold it in place on the edges.

LID September Release Day 2 - Thanks a Bunch Pumpkin Shaker

Hello! Welcome to day two of the hop sharing projects with the BRAND NEW September release at Lil' Inker Designs! There is such a fun mix of products in this release - I'm loving the fall items! You can find the entire new release HERE!

Today I have a festive fall shaker card to share using the new Harvest Moon Dies, Stitched Mini Chevron Border Die (a personal favorite of the new release!), and some leaves and a sentiment from the lovely Fall Foliage Stamp Set:


I began by die cutting the new Harvest Moon Die, then blending some distress ink over it. I die cut the new Stitched Mini Chevron Border Die from black cardstock, and heat embossed my sentiment from Fall Foliage on it in white.


I created my shaker, filling it with a variety of sparkly sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, then stamped, colored, and die cut some leaves from Fall Foliage to tuck into the back of the pumpkins. Finished off by adding some pretty fall pattern paper from an older paper pad, then added some gold splatters using my Starry Colors Palette as a finishing touch!

LID September Release Day 1 - So Thankful Foliage

Hello! The day is finally here to start sharing projects with the BRAND NEW September release at Lil' Inker Designs! There is such a fun mix of products in this release - I'm loving the fall items! You can find the entire new release HERE!


You should have arrived here from Chrissy Larson - if you stopped by here you can refer to the entire blog hop at the bottom so you don't miss a stop or a chance to win the amazing giveaway. I also have links to all the new products I used on today's cards!

For my first card to share I'm featuring the gorgeous new Fall Foliage Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies - such a fun new fall floral set!


I started off by stamping each and every image from the stamp set and doing some very simple and intentionally messy coloring on them before cutting them all out with the coordinating dies. I love the artsy feel this coloring gave to these images!


Next, I created a background by die cutting Tribal Chic Cover Up Die from kraft cardstock, trimming it down slightly, adding some white paint splatters, and mounting on a white cardbase. When that dried, I arranged all my images on the background until I was happy with them, picked them all up with a piece of Press & Seal (Jennifer McGuire trick!), added adhesive, and then set them in place.


I stamped my sentiment from the set, attached it with foam adhesive, and then added a few sparkling clear sequins to finish it off!

Pinkfresh Studio Liquid Watercolor Video Hop

Good morning! Stopping by today to share a few projects I made for a special YouTube Video Hop today featuring the Pinkfresh Studio Liquid Watercolors - I am SOOO in love with these beautiful paints! There are some great giveaways up for grabs - so make sure and head over to my YouTube channel HERE to check out the details!


Here is my video - remember you must leave a comment on the YouTube channel to be eligible for the giveaways - click HERE to go watch it there!


I have lots more info on my video - but I combined a few different colors of the watercolors with a wet-on-wet technique over Tim Holtz Woodgrain Distress Cardstock. I loved the additional texture this gave the backgrounds!


Next, I layered on some floral frames using Floral Squares Die Set (currently out of stock at Pinkfresh Studio I noticed, but in stock at Simon Says Stamp).


I also added a sentiment to each one using Bird with Flowers. I love the fun and quirkly sentiments that Pinkfresh has in their stamp sets - so unique and fun to use! Here is a closer look at each card:




Another thing I love about the awesome Pinkfresh Liquid Watercolors - the Licorice (black) one makes the BEST tiny splatters on cards! I have been using it for that a ton lately!


I hope you will hop over and check out all the videos along the hop - and enter to win some of the fabulous prizes! Full details and links will be available on the Pinkfresh Studio Blog as well!
