Monthly Mix Challenge!

This Months Challenge is Hosted by: Mindy Eggen!

Her challenge is to create some Ombre Inked blending for your card. Here is what I came up with! I used Gina K. Designs Bold and Blooming Stamp Set

Along with some Oxide Inks for my background. I Blended them together with Picket Fence – Life Changing Blending Brushes.

I love how easy these brushes are to blend ink and to clean up! I don’t have the full set of Oxide Inks but I do have some and here are the three I used for this card! Fossilized Amber, Twisted Citron, & Peacock Feathers.

I used a little water and some reindeer – Black Onyx to add the droplets on the background!

There is still a couple of weeks left to join us in the Monthly Mix Challenge, and remember there will be 3 winner picked! Gina K. Designs a $25.00 Gift Certificates for those winners! ❤ To Join in the Challenge click – Gina K. Designs Monthly Mix Challenge

Tent Topper Card Video

I used the the same supplies as the card above, just added a extra butterfly instead of the lady bug, and then made it a Tent Topper Card.

I have been having lots of fun creating with these New Sets and Glitz Glitter Gel. On this card I used the Crazy Daisy StampnStencil Stamp Set, & Stencil. I used White Pigment Ink and some brushed and applied the ink over the stencil, then stamped the Crazy Daisy Flower in the White Ink as well. Grabbed my Prismacolored Pencils and colored the Flower and Leaves. Used a Gel Pen to add little highlights to the flower and stencil. Stamped the Greeting in Jet Black Amalgam Ink.

Here are a couple projects made using the New Mega Wreath Builder. The First one Features the Newly Released Vibrant Blooms Stamp set! I have really enjoyed using the flowers in this set! 🙂 On this card I used the large Gerber Daisy looking flower and stamped it on a piece of 6″ X 6″ card stock. I started with the Red Velvet, then stamped Coral Reef, Sweet Mango, Wild Dandelion, Jelly Bean Green, Turquoise Sea, Blue Denim, & Wild Lilac. Stamped the Greeting in Jet Black – Amalgam Ink. Layered it on a a piece of Black Onyx Card Stock and used some twine from my stash to tie around it. Added some bling to finish it off.

Still playing with this set……

This next card… Well, I really love this cluster of leaves and had to make another wreath using it and the New Gray Inks! I started with the 4 3/4″ X 4 3/4″ piece of paper and the template that is the same size. I Stamped the leaves in the Soft Stone & Stormy Sky Premium Dye Inks. I then put the wreath in the square position, used the other wreath builder templates on top of my project, then added the first large circle, then the smaller circle. Put a piece of tape over the stencils to hold them together and sponged the Dusty Rose Center. Removed the smaller circle and then stamped the greeting in Jet Black Amalgam Ink & Stamped the Flower in the Jet Black Amalgam Ink on another piece of paper and colored with Pencils. Added this layer to a piece of Soft Stone card stock. Then die cut the flower and Popped it up on the card. Added some bling, twine, and sequins from my stash. The Card Back is 5 1/2″ wide X 6″ tall, I scored a line 1″ from the top of the 6″ side. Attached the Dusty Rose 4 1/4″ X 5 3/8″ panel that has been dry embossed to a Black Onyx panel 4 1/2″ X 5 3/4″. Then added Connect Glue to the top back of the Black Onyx panel so it attaches to the top inch of the card base. Then I popped up the Focal Layer making sure to only attach it to the Dusty Rose layer. The white you see behind the Black Onyx and Focal layers is the card base.

Up Next is You make Me Happy Stamp set used with the Mega Wreath Builder Template.

For the focal area. I used the 4 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ template and piece of white layering weight card stock & added the circles to the center, then sponged the center with Key Lime and Jelly Bean Green. Removed the Circle templates and added the dot stamp from Lisa Hetrick’s Today & Always Stamp Set to the Misti and stamped it around the card. Stamped the flowers and Greeting in Amalgam – Jet Black. Die cut the flowers and jar images. For the jar I used a piece of scrap paper and used Jelly Bean Green and Key Lime to drag across the paper then cut out with the die. Popped up some and then glued the others. Added the bow and layers.
