RO DONNER  ⇐ You are here!

Let's go to the fun stuff!

Basic supplies may include: MistiCutAlign Tools; various inks pads including the new IZink InksInk Blending Brushes; cardstock, vellum and adhesives; paper trimmer, scissors and/or Xacto knife; heat tool; embossing powder


Stamp(s) Used: 
- Birthday Jar (SD972)
TJ Products Used:
- Nuvo Glitter Gloss Aqua Pen
Other Products Used:  Colored Pencils, Gold lining stickers, navy cardstock

Just adding a few simple layers and some gold lines make this stamped image pop! I used colored pencils and some gamsol to color in the image. IRL you can see a little shimmer on the image which gives it a subtle specialness.


Stamp(s) Used: 
- Best Things in Life (S849)
TJ Products Used:
Shimmering Bliss Shimmer Sprays
- IZINK Dye Inkpads
- Ink Blending Brushes
- My Sweet Petunia Cut-Align
Other Products Used:  White Embossing Powder

Using some of the bold jewel colors of the Dye Inks, I was able to get a rich background for this image. I embossed the image with White EP to really give it a pop. Using the Cut-Align on the individually cut words made getting a close cut to the lettering a snap!


Stamp(s) Used: 
- Advice from a Giraffe (SD988)
TJ Products Used:
- A Colorful Life Stencil: Wavy Weave
-  Ink Blending Brushes
- Pixie Spray

Other Products Used:  Vellum, Gold Cardstock

The Wavy Weave stencil makes a perfect giraffe skin background. Who knew?! After using the blending brushes to ink through the stencil, which was held nicely in place with Pixie Spray, I stamped the image on some vellum and attached that to the card. The giraffe wasn't showing up to my satisfaction, so I rest amped him on the gold cardstock and fussy cut him out so I could add him on top of the vellum. Love the sentiment on this one!


Stamp(s) Used: 
- Your Own Magic (SD967)
TJ Products Used:
Shimmering Bliss Shimmer Sprays
Nuvo Glitter Gloss Aqua Pen
- Kaisercraft Gel Pens
Other Products Used:  Cutting Dies, Washi Tape, Sequins, Clear Embossing Powder

I love the deep jewel tones of this background. I achieved it with two shades of Shimmering Bliss: Mardi Gras and Mermaid, which is one of my favorite combinations. After stamping the image and coloring it in, I placed it back in the MISTI. Since I hadn't moved the stamp, I was able to re-stamp with Versamark and add clear EP. I then added some shimmer and blending with the Aqua Pen for some extra shimmer. I die cut the background, added some washi tape, and assembled the card. IRL this card is full of shimmery goodness.


Stamp(s) Used: 
- Dog Kiss (SD974)
- Paw Prints Background (S826) (NOT NEW)
TJ Products Used:
IZINK Dye Inkpads
Ink Blending Brushes
Other Products Used:  Kraft and Creme Cardstock, embellishments, Cutting Die

As easy as this card was to create, I love how it turned out. I stamped the paw prints on some Kraft CS, matted with black, and attached to my card base. The image was stamped on some cream CS, then die cut. Using the blending brushes, I added some interest to the edges of the cut image. That was attached with foam tape, and a few embellishments added for interest.


Well, there you have it. Hope you found some inspiration today. The next blog linked up is Stephanie's. She has some great projects to share with you!

Til next time,
Keepin' it inky!
