Snow Much Thanks - Simon Says Stamp January Card Kit

Good morning! I'm popping in to share yet another card created with the BRAND NEW January Simon Says Stamp Card Kit - Snow Much! I love all the fun and playful elements of this kit! The stamp set - Snow Much - is darling, there is a beautiful die called Twirling Ice Skatergorgeous pattern paper from Echo Park, and lots of other fun little elements! Today I have a super clean and simple one layer card focusing on the stamp set:


I used my MISTI to stamp and line up my images and sentiments from Snow Much, allowing the main image to go over the edges of the card.


I colored it in with a few simple Copic markers, then added a nice shiny coat of Glossy Accents (included in the kit!) over parts of the image. So while this is a flat one layer card, it has some interest, shine, and dimension still!


Here is a closer look at the entire kit contents - you can find all the details HERE:


I love using Glossy Accents on cards - is it something you've ever tried before?

LID December Release Day 2 - Plaid and Penguins

Hello! Welcome back to Day 2 of sharing projects with the BRAND NEW December release at Lil' Inker Designs! Such fun products in this release - and if you love Buffalo Plaid (and who DOESN'T?!?!?) - you are going to love this release! 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!

Today I've used the beautiful Cozy Plaid Stamp set again - this time to create a background for this fun shaker using the penguins from the new Good Cheer Stamp Set:


For this background, I stamped the main large plaid image from Cozy Plaid in a medium gray ink, then I used the fun sketchy lines to stamp in black over the top in an alternating pattern. The result was this neutral and fun plaid background!


Next, I stamped and colored the sweet penguins from Good Cheer Stamp Set, cut them with their coordinating Good Cheer Dies, and heat embossed a sentiment from the set on a strip of vellum. I die cut a Stitched Oval from a panel of white cardstock, and built a shaker filled with pretty Sparkly Clear Jewels from Pretty Pink Posh and backed with that lovely neutral plaid. I also wrapped the vellum sentiment strip around the panel and tucked it under in the back beneath the foam adhesive for the shaker.


I finished off by mounting the penguins at the bottom of the shaker, then mounting the entire panel on a coordinating gray cardbase. Love the neutral colors with the pop of color from the penguins winter accessories!

Winnie and Walter Rerun Challenge

Good morning! Today is the start of a new Rerun Feature and Challenge at Winnie and Walter - this month our featured set is the adorable Stampets: Penguin stamp set!

I have a super clean and simple card to share - although I did a bit of masking, so the simple is a bit deceiving, since it did take me a little while to put it together! But - so worth it I think!


To create the masked image, I first stamped my penguin on some inexpensive printer paper trimmed to the same size as my cardfront, and lined up in my MISTI. Since I have two MISTI's, I then moved it over to the other one, and lined up and stamped my scarf and mittens over the top. At this point it looks messy, but I knew it was lined up how I wanted it. Then, it was simply a matter of stamping the scarf and mittens on my cardbase, stamping them again on masking paper, cutting them out, and layering them over the top. Finally, I stamped the penguin in place, removed the masking paper, and voila! Cute one layer image!


I colored it up with Copics, stamped my sentiment underneath, then added a few sparkly Nuvo Drops and Snowflake sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to finish it off!

Missing You Skater - Simon Says Stamp January Card Kit

Good morning! I'm popping in to share another card created with the BRAND NEW January Simon Says Stamp Card Kit - Snow Much! I love all the fun and playful elements of this kit! The stamp set - Snow Much - is darling, there is a beautiful die called Twirling Ice Skatergorgeous pattern paper from Echo Park, and lots of other fun little elements! This card is much brighter and bolder - and I love this color combo:


For this card, I used lots of that lovely pattern paper. I trimmed the blue down to exactly fit my card front, and the red was what was left of the reverse side of the card I shared last night (you can see it HERE). I wanted it in a banner shape, but it was a little too thin for the size banner I wanted - so I used Basic Banners, and just lined it up on the bottom so it cut only the banner shape on the bottom, not the sides. Then, I was able to cut that same banner shape from white cardstock and have a perfect mat!


I die cut the Twirling Ice Skater, also from white cardstock, and added one of the cute little pom-poms to the top of her hat. I heat embossed the sentiment from the stamp set, Snow Much, on a bit of Surf Blue cardstock from the kit, then adhered all the layers together with foam adhesive!

LID December Release Day 1 - Buffalo Plaid and Chocolate

Hello! So excited to start sharing projects with the BRAND NEW December release at Lil' Inker Designs! Such fun products in this release - and if you love Buffalo Plaid (and who DOESN'T?!?!?) - you are going to love this release! 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!

Today I'm using a few of the new stamps and dies - but in particular, my new favorite stamp set - Cozy Plaid! I mean...buffalo Plaid stamp - how can you go wrong?!?!?


I've used this stamp set in several different color combos to give a completely different feel - I'll be sharing more of those over the next couple days - but for today's card I went full-on-traditional Buffalo Plaid and stamped it in black on red cardstock. I used my MISTI and Versafine ink to stamp multiple times for a super deep, dark, and crisp impression. 


Next, I die cut the mug from the previously released Coffee Talk 2 Die Set, and added a sentiment from the new coordinating Comfy Cocoa stamp set, and some whip cream and a peppermint stick from the new Comfy Cocoa Coordinating Dies.


To add a touch of interest, texture, and femininity to my card, I added a bit of lace at the bottom, and some jute twine before mounting my mug of cocoa with foam adhesive over the top. I also used some Nuvo Glitter Drops to add some sparkle on the whip cream and peppermint stick. SOOO fun!


Your next stop along the blog hop is Jennifer Carter - head over there next to finish the hop before you go shopping. See you tomorrow with more projects and fun!

There is also this fun little promotion going on right now if you need any last minute gifts! :)

Snow Much Thanks - Simon Says Stamp January Card Kit

Hello! I'm popping in to share my first card created with the BRAND NEW January Simon Says Stamp Card Kit - Snow Much! I love all the fun and playful elements of this kit! The stamp set - Snow Much - is darling, there is a beautiful die called Twirling Ice Skater, gorgeous pattern paper from Echo Park, and lots of other fun little elements! Here is my first card to share with the new kit:


Despite the bold, bright, and fun colors in the kit - I used some of the elements in there to create this soft and neutral card. Isn't that snowman the cutest? I colored him in super soft Copic markers - makes me so happy!


This is one of the pattern papers in the kit, and I die cut some snowdrifts with Drifting Stitches Borders to nestle the snowman on. The sentiment was heat embossed in white on a vellum banner die cut with Stitched Banners Dies - I attached it down, then used the white thread in the kit to tie around to cover the adhesive and add a loopy bow!


Here is a closer look at the entire kit contents - you can find all the details HERE:


Do you like to make cards with bolder color combos? Or softer like this one? I love to do both - and will be back very soon to share some more cards!

Sparkly Christmas Tags - Reverse Confetti Wednesday in the Works

Hello! I have a new edition of Wednesday in the Works on the Reverse Confetti Blog and YouTube Channel this morning - this week I have some fun and sparkly Christmas tags to share with you! Just in time for wrapping up those Christmas gifts and goodies and adding some sparkly fun to them! I combined Topped Off Tags with Stitched Rays Cover panel, added a sparkly snowflake using Snowflake Trio Confetti Cuts, and a sentiment from Triangle Trees to build these - then some glitter cardstock and washi tape, jewels, and sheer ribbon to pull it all together! The silver and sparkly pink goes so well with the combo of Stone and Iced Aqua cardstock!


Thanks so much for stopping by - have a great day!
