Seas the Day

Hello to you. Kia here with you today to share this fabulous stamp and die set by Colorado Craft Company, along with the background stencil by Gina K Designs. To get a bit of a different look for this card I first did smooshing using Neenah cardstock and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide along with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide inks.

Putting down the dry background piece on my work surface I added the stencil over the piece securing it in place. Using a domed foam blending tool along with Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink I pounced the tool up and down lightly to fill the card piece with ink, which created beautiful dimensions and further textures. While I had the tools out I also did a piece just using the stencil for the inside of my card.

In my mini Misti using Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black I stamped the images, then proceeded to colour using Copic markers in the following colours: The Birds B000, B41, B26 and Y13, R17 on the beaks. The posts are done using E42, E47 and Y19 with C00 and C1 on the Starfish along with B26 dots.

Using the coordinating die, I die cut the pieces with my Gemini Jr. machine. I attached the background piece to my card front using Art Glitter glue, along with the piece I did for the card inside. On the inside piece I also stamped using the beautiful sentiment included in the set.

On the card front I attached the die cut piece using foam strips, including the extra Starfish. I then stamped the sentiment “Seas the Day” using VersaFine Clair ink in Blue Belle.

To finish with a bit of sparkle I added Pinkfresh gems in Ombre, being silver and blue gems, which are so pretty.

I hope you have enjoyed this card today, and look forward to seeing you next Friday.

Tuesday with Tara {take 385} Love is Brewing

Happy Tuesday!  I’m sharing a twist on a throwback card today… You may have seen this card before, but it’s never been shared here on the SNS Blog!  LOL. 

I’ve used the Coffee House stamps by Anita Jeram together with Storyteller paper pad by Vicki Boutin.  I also pulled out my copic markers for the first time in a long time and there are smudges everywhere as evidence.  If you can just squint past the smudges, I hope you’ll like it!

These little mice (and this whole stamp set- which is full of cuteness you’re definitely going to see more of…) just make me smile, and are definitely relatable.  I feel this way about that first cup of coffee in the morning or about meeting up with a friend for a cup of chai.

Once again, sorry about the smudges- some weeks it’s a struggle just finding time to make anything and RE-making it was definitely not an option.  LOL. I think they are cute enough to compensate!

Inky hugs!

Tuesday with Tara {take 359} Bookmarks!

Happy Tuesday, friends!

I’m sure I’m not the only person who looks forward to summertime reading!  I used to read so much when I was younger, but I find these days I really have to make an effort and take time to read.  All too often, when I finally do take the time I end up using a piece of junk mail or a receipt for my bookmark.  Friends, we can do better than that!  ha!

Today I’m sharing some sweet & simple bookmarks I stamped.  I paired this little mouse by Anita Jeram (not currently in the online store- sorry!) with some paint splatters & a swoosh from this fun crafty set by Taylored Expressions.  I stamped the painty bits in Distress Oxide Ink, picking the colors based on the scraps of ribbon I could easily find on my work space to match with them!  Here I’ve used Mustard Seed and Wilted Violet.  Lastly, the mice were quickly colored in with some watercolor pencils and honestly, it’s as simple as that!

The stamp set comes with some cute little sentiments that I added to the bookmarks as well.   Before stamping, I cut the bookmarks out of some mini slimline stackables stitched dies by Lawn Fawn, and they are perfect for this!

Here’s a closer look at my cute little bookmarks!  Now I just need to make the time to use them…

Inky hugs,
