Queen & Co. / Filled with Thanks / Love Jar Kit


Hello!  I'm here with a few more cards using the Love Jar Kit from Queen & Co..  One using a shaker from the kit and one using just the dies to create a jar!  What I love about this kit is that you can use the kit to create non-shaker cards too.  

Gratitude

For my first card, I've used the stamps to design my own pattern paper.  Using several of the flower images, I stamped them using various pigment inks.  I embellished some of the bigger blooms with clear rhinestones.  Using the jar dies from the kit, I added one die cut jar that has the same blue pigment ink lightly blended halfway up.  I topped it off with a white die cut heart stamped with the gratitude sentiment and a heart with a tiny grey twine bow.

Striped Fill me with Joy

My second card was done keeping it very simple using the jar shaker elements, foam shaker, twine, and the pattern paper.  The jar was die cut with pattern paper using the jar "inside" as the backer for my shaker.  I love this colorful striped paper included in the paper pad.  A simple sentiment stamped onto the die cut heart and tied off with yellow twine finishes the card.

What about a card with the sentiment as THE focal point?  I've stamped 'Have a Nice Day' onto a panel of Yupo paper done in stripes with various alcohol inks with a gold mixative.  This panel was added to a mint notecard with a black accent strip.

SugarPea Designs / Always in Style

Hello!  
I'm sharing MORE inspiration using the April release from last week.  There were so many awesome new stamps and dies including this fabulous LondonScape SugarCut.

This sentiment was just dying to be added to an orange and pink background along with a hot pink glittered LondonScape SugarCut.  The background was blended with Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Inks.  I also used the same colors on the "fabulous" die cut sentiment.  All the elements were added to a Large Striped CoverPlate that was stamped with the tiny stars image from Chic Wishes.

Lil' Inker Designs / April Release Day 2 / Giveaway

Amy_One Love2 

We are starting off Day 2 of the Lil' Inker Designs April Release!  This release is FULL of amazing dies and stamps for this spring season......are you ready?  Guess what??  The whole new release is now available and can be found HERE!!!


I thought I would share some cards for the upcoming GRADUATION season.  My first card uses a set that you may not think of as a graduation set but I just LOVE this sentiment.  This set is called One LoveBut how fitting is this sentiment?  

I stamped the world image with Broken China Distress Oxide Ink and spritzed it with water just enough that I could stamp and not distort the image.  Worked perfectly!  After drying, I used the One Love Die Set to cut out the heart.  I stamped and white heat embossed my sentiment on a long black strip and fishtail cut the ends.  My heart image was added to a panel of cardstock that I had watercolored stripes of the same Distress Oxide Ink.

Amy_Grad Class_Dotted Chevron

I created this graduation card using the Grad Class (supplement) and the original Grad Class stamps that were released last year!  

I started with a navy blue panel to which I "impressed" the Dotted Chevrons.  I stamped my sentiment and some falling starts onto a Stitched Mats: Rounded Rectangles.  I added some silver glitter stars using the Stitched Stars Die Set.  The whole panel was then added with foam adhesive.

Lil' Inker Designs / April Release Day 1 / Giveaway

Amy_Dotted Chevron_Best Mom2 

We are starting off Day 1 of the Lil' Inker Designs April Release!  This release is FULL of amazing dies and stamps for this spring season......are you ready?  Guess what??  The whole new release is now available and can be found HERE!!!

I want to officially welcome my friend Caly Person to the Lil' Inker Designs family and DT!   I've had the opportunity to spend a crafty weekend with her and her work is incredible!  ♥♥



I am starting the release off with my FAVORITE set called Best Mom and coordinating Best Mom Dies.  I've paired this with the amazing new Cover Up Die: Dotted Chevrons.

The awesome thing about this flower stamp is it is just ONE PETAL!  Die cut your flower FIRST.  Then stamp the petals around!  I found it easier to use the negative to pop the flower back in place to be able to use my Misti so I could get darker images by double stamping (I used Fresh Inks which are pigment).  I even added some of the petals as leaves done in a light grey pigment ink.  I layered my flowers onto a white Dotted Chevrons background and added a black Hello Die which is also new!

Amy_Shaker Tag_Handrawn Happiness 

My second card uses the Handrawn Happiness stamps paired with the Shaker Tag Die Set.  I stamped the sentiment onto the smaller rectangle die and colored in the greenery.  I popped this layer with foam adhesive.  To the top, I added stamped and die cut flowers from Best Mom.  My focal image was added to a white notecard where texture was added using the Quilted Stitched So Sunny Die.

SugarPea Designs / Release Day!

Sending sunshine 
Hello! 
 I am excited to share the last of the projects I've been working on for the brand new release from SugarPea Designs!  We have shared inspiration using the new release all week long.  With several new stamp sets and matching dies.......there's something you are sure to love!

The NEW products will be available for purchase starting this Friday (today!), April 20th at 6PM EST in the SPD Store.


There's no better card to send than a "just because" card saying "Sending Sunshine"!  I started with a black heat embossed image so I could use Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color.  I chose bright happy colors to color.  I added the wagon to a white notecard that had Broken China Distress Oxide Ink blended in the center.  To finish, a Postage Stamp Die (frame) was added around the perimeter as well as some clear gems.
