A Card with No Stamping!

Friday, July 26th, 2019

Hello friends! Welcome back to the SNS Blog! Today I have a card made with die cutting only…no stamping whatsoever!

I went through my stash of Lawn Fawn goodies and decided to make a Hello card using only dies. In particular, the Outside In Stitched Flower, the Stitched Flower and the Outside In Stitched Speech Bubbles die sets.

I cut each flower from the Spring Plaid paper pack (also, Lawn Fawn) along with the leaves. These are large flowers and fill up the front of a card nicely.

I used craft foam for dimension on the pink flower and used liquid glue for the blue one. I adhered the flowers onto a white panel cut with Stitched Rectangle Die. I thought it needed a little seperation from the white card base so I layered some grey cardstock behind the focal panel.

I added a few grey crystals for embellishments and some Shimmer Pen to the cheeks of the blue flower and the “hi” diecut, which is included in the Speech Bubbles Die Set!

This is quite a simple card although it does take a bit of time to die cut all the pieces. But well worth it in the end!

Thanks for dropping in! See you soon!


Alcohol Ink Flowers

Friday, May 24th, 2019

Hi peeps! Dawn here from the little mennonite blog. Keeping with our flower theme this month I created a flower panel with alcohol ink.


On a panel of yupo paper drop a small drop of Flamingo alcohol ink and let dry. Next add a drop of Sunshine Yellow alcohol ink and let it dry completely too. Wet a small paintbrush with 99% rubbing alcohol and wet a very small spot of dried ink. Blow (with a straw) the now wet ink out from the center. Repeat this until you get a full flower. The repeat to create multiple flowers. Add black pen to create an outline. Let dry.

Happy Tuesday!

Here’s hoping the week to come is full of beautiful things… like this adorable die set by My Favorite Things.  I cut the “beautiful” word from a heavyweight glossy cardstock, which gave the mottled look you see here as I spritzed some metallic paint on it, as well as splattering it on my card base. (You can get a similar look by mixing Liquid Pearls with a bit of water in a Mini Mister.)

I chose a solid floral stamp from my stash (one from this set or this set would work great!) and spritzed it with water before coloring directly on the rubber with distress crayons.  I also added a bit of shimmer with the paint I’d used on the word & card background. My image was a bit damp, which added to the abstract look. Once it was dry (with the help of a heat tool) I added some bling to finish it off.

I’ll be sending this card to one of my single girlfriends for Valentines Day… because every woman deserves a reminder that she is beautiful!

Inky hugs,
