Miss Ink Stamps / June Release / Gardenia


Hello!  Just a quick share to feature the new Miss Ink Stamps June release!

My card uses the gorgeous new Gardenia stamps.  All my images were Copic colored and hand trimmed out.  They were added to a watercolor striped panel that was done using a wide paintbrush and some watered down Broken China Distress Ink.  This is a super easy way to create background!!!  A white heat embossed sentiment strip was added with foam adhesive.  A few clear droplets were added to finish off my card.


Make sure to visit the Miss Ink Stamps Blog for all the details on the release date and time.  There are also prizes over there too!

I started out using the new Spirograph stencil and ink blended with Twisted Citron Distress Ink very lightly.  The panel was added to a white note card and a die cut circle was added to the center to ground the images.  Several of the floral bunches from Meadow Motifs were stamped, Copic colored, and cut out.  They were arranged over the white circle die cut along with a few sentiment strips stamped with the new Everyday Sentiments.  To finish, a few lime green gems were added to bring out the shine.

SugarPea Designs / Tropical Friend

Hello!  I'm here with some tropical inspiration.  I have vacation on my mind when I made this card!  

Tropic Hello Friend

I started with a white trimmed panel and stamped one of the tropical leaves in a rose colored ink randomly on the lower right corner.  I overstamped the images with another leaf but gold heat embossed with Princess Gold embossing powder.  I added a layered die cut Hello sentiment out of gold cardstock and a gold embossed supporting word 'friend'.  My panel was added to the lower right corner for something different with foam adhesive.  As a final touch, a few small gold gems were added.

Reverse Confetti / June Blog Hop

June blog hop 

Welcome to the Reverse Confetti June Blog Hop!
Make sure to check out the Reverse Confetti blog for all the details of this hop and for a full list of inspiration and information.

Since summertime is upon us, I thought I'd pull out an oldie but goodie stamp set called Seaside.  There's something about just plain ole stamping with bold images.

I was inspired by the current CAS(E) this Sketch! for my layout.  After laying out where my circle cutouts would go, I used a small circle die to cut out the circles for my images.  A white heat embossed sentiment strip was added with foam adhesive.  These little crabs are so cute!  I stamped, die cut, and arranged them in the windows looking in different directions.

Avery Elle / Rainbows

Hello!  I am sharing my most favorite stamp and die set from the Avery Elle release.......Rainbows!  As I'm sure it's no surprise, this die set flew out of here on release day.  It's fabulous and will be totally worth the wait for more to arrive!


I love a shaped card and the Rainbows Elle-ments comes with a die to do just that!  My card and rainbow layer are all done in white cardstock.  To adhere all the rainbow cardstock pieces, I used the new Liquid Glue Adhesive.  This glue works perfectly to get in those small spaces!  My cloud was stamped with a sentiment from Rainbows and then lightly ink blended on the edges with Broken China Distress Ink.  The cloud was added with foam adhesive and a few raindrops were added to the panel to tie in with the sentiment.  To finish this off, the whole card was spritzed with the new Clear Shimmer Spray.......I love everything about this spray.  It gives off just the right amount of shimmer and shine especially looking at it from an angle.

Hero Arts / My Monthly Hero Kit--June


Welcome to the My Monthly Hero Blog Hop!  Hero Arts has designed a fantastic tropical/jungle themed kit!!  This My Monthly Hero Kit and add-ons has SO many possibilities.  This month's kit was amazing to work with and I have four cards to share......let's get started!

This month takes us to the jungle, tropics, and beaches!  The main kit and add-ons are fabulous!  The kit is available for a limited time only - once it's gone, it's gone. Kits begin shipping from Hero Arts on Friday, June 7. You can now subscribe to receive the kit monthly and never miss one!  The kit value is over $70......but only costs $34.99.  Once this kit is gone, it's gone!

****Hero Arts will donate 10% of the net profits from this kit to jungle habitat preservation through the World Wildlife Fund.****

The first card I created with this kit was using some of the add-ons from this month.  I used the Leaves & Vines Fancy Die.  I die cut this die out of white cardstock and using spray adhesive, the die was adhered to a white notecard.  To keep this simple, I added stamped "THANKS" on various shades of green cardstock strips and added them with foam adhesive.


The second card uses images from the main kit along with the stencil.  Broken China Distress Ink was blended lightly over the stencil darker in some spots.  The flamingo and grass images were Copic colored and die cut using the coordinating dies from the kit.  The sentiment was stamped just below with black ink.


My third card just makes me happy.  If you just mention rainbow, my heart goes pitter patter.  I've Copic colored the feather image from the main kit in rainbow colors and die cut them with the coordinating dies.  They were arranged and added with foam adhesive just above a white heat embossed sentiment from the main kit.


One last one!  I've used the Color Layering Palm Tree.  I did not use them but just look at the adorable monkey images included in the set!!!  I stamped my palm tree and added it to a Distress Ink blended panel.  I wanted to keep this simple and stamped sentiment finishes the card.
