OK, and now for the project I made using the new release!  I just love this new release- so many amazing stamps & dies!  For this project, I used the new Blending Buddy and the Harvest Candy and Flower Bucket die set.


I blended the background with 3 distress oxide inks using the Blending Buddy.  I die cut all the images from the Harvest Bucket die set with different cardstocks including glitter cardstock for the candy.  I set up a chibitronics circuit to light up the pumpkin.  I plan to do a video on how to make a similar pumpkin project soon.

Fall Floral Card


I cannot wait for fall and I think this card expresses that!  There is a very short video showing some of the process here.  I used the Candy Jar stamp set, the Candy Jar die set, Narrow Card/Envelope & Bookmark die set, the Winter Botanical stamp set, the Winter Botanical die set and the hello Senti-mini die set, as well as the blue lagoon confetti.  That is a lot of products for one card, but I love to mix and match Trinity’s amazing products!


  1. I die cut all the panels & envelope parts from the Narrow Card/Envelope & Bookmark die set, and adhered the panel to a 3 inch by 6 inch card base.  I show how to put the envelope together in the video as well- you have to die cut 2 side panels and the main envelope panel with the 2 flaps.
  2. I cut a smaller panel out of white Neenah cardstock, stamped part of the jar (masking the top part off) with Memento tuxedo black ink, and then prepared a mask of the jar itself, which I placed over the image on the panel.  I then ink blended distress oxide inks- scattered straw first, then spiced marmalade and finally festive berries at the corners to create a fall backdrop for the vase with the flowers.
  3. I stamped some of the Winter Botanical stamp set images with Versamark ink and then heat embossed with gold embossing powder onto Smooth Bristol watercolor paper.  I stamped the same images in peeled paint distress oxide ink & rusty hinge distress oxide ink onto another panel of Smooth Bristol watercolor paper.
  4. I colored all the images either with peeled paint, festive berries, or rusty hinge distress oxide ink and then adhered them in the vase.  Finally I die cut the Candy Jar with acetate and with Lawn Fawn speckled blue paper to create a vase with a blue hue, die cut the word “hello” out of gold metallic paper & adhered the blue lagoon confetti.

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Miss Ink Stamps

Mondo Flower Bouquet


Hi everyone! I can hardly believe that it is Labor Day Weekend!  Hope that you are enjoying the extended weekend with your family!

Today I’m up on the Miss Ink Stamps blog with a card using a little bit of masking.  I had envisioned one of the adorable critters from the Miss Ink Stamp lines holding a huge bouquet of flowers, but I didn’t know which one or if there would be multiple critters involved.  After looking at the size card I was making & the huge size of the Gardenia Stamp set, I decided that one little hedgehog from the Bubbles stamp set would be it!

To make the card:

  1. First I stamped the large gardenia stem in tuxedo black Momento ink on an A2 sized panel of Neenah solar white cardstock.  I then stamped the same image onto masking paper so that I could mask off the bottom stem before stamping the hedgehog in the same black ink on top of the mask with the stem.  I did wipe off the ink on bubble wand prior to stamping the hedgehog.  I then stamped and fussy cut out a few extra flower images.
  2. I googled gardenias prior to coloring, as I truly love to have the real thing in front of me when I color.  I copic colored the flowers with Y11 in the center and Y0000, YG61 on top of the petals and C00 on the underside of the petals.  The leaves were copic colored with YG61 & YG67 on top and Y28 on the underside. The hedgehog was colored with Y28, E37, E50 & E51 and some white highlights from a white Gelly Roll pen.
  3. I always have to have sparkle in some manner, so I added some Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture Paste in
    to the buds & centers of each flower.  I finished off the card with a frame in antique gold cardstock and patterned cardstock with a pretty script and a couple of yellow sequins.

Here is a close up of the shimmer:


I hope that this card inspires you to do some masking!  It is so much fun once you get the hang of it!  Happy Labor Day Weekend!

Collaboration: Trinity Stamps & Miss Ink Stamps


Today I’m up on the Trinity YouTube channel with a video featuring a card made with products from Trinity Stamps and Miss Ink Stamps!  You can find the video here. I used the Trinity Stamps Mermaid Wishes stamp set and the Waves stencil from Miss Ink Stamps.

Briefly, I stamped the mermaid with Memento ink in tuxedo black on Neenah solar white cardstock and then fussy cut it and then copic colored it as shown in the video.  I used versamark ink to ink up the stencil on Lawn Fawn acetate sheets and then used several wow embossing powders and a heat gun to heat emboss the waves on the stencil.  I cannot say enough good things about the Lawn Fawn acetate- it holds up to heat from a heat gun and does not warp!  I then fussy cut the acetate sheets.  Not having white embossing powder (I only have the puffy kind), I had to improvise and use Hero Arts white unicorn ink and pearl white embossing powder to heat emboss my sentiment on navy cardstock.  A few clouds from the Trinity Stamps Puffy Cloud embellishment mix and a frame cut from antique gold cardstock finished the card. The waves move back and forth when you pull the tab- you will be able to see it best on the YouTube video!

Please stop by Instagram today; Trinity Stamps and Miss Ink Stamps are having an Instagram hop filled with fun projects and prizes.

Technique Tuesday

Winter Traveler’s Notebook Layout- Technique Tuesday


Hello to Winter in August!  Today I’m using a stamp set and die from Technique Tuesday’s travel, vacation & recreation section.  I’m using the “Cars on the Road” border die set and the Hello Winter stamp set to create a traveler’s notebook spread detailing an event from last December.


First I stamped all the images in clear embossing powder on two 8 by 4 inch cardstock panels. I then ink blended the distress oxide shaded lilac and tumbled glass on top and wiped with a clear cloth over the stamped images.  Aren’t images adorable?


Here is a close-up for the beautiful images in the stamp set!

I die cut the car out of red cardstock and the tires & road out of black cardstock. I added some finishing touches to complete the layout: puffed white embossing powder, sequins, wood veneer trees and a woodgrain alpha.
