Ink, Stamp and Share Guy Cards

Welcome to our Ink and Share Blog Hop featuring projects designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators and me. This month, we are featuring projects created with guys in mind. If you are hopping around, you have arrived from Tricia Butt’s blog and her fabulous project.

The Tranquil Textures designer series papers has a few options that look like water. I picked the pattern with a little purple so the fish could be accented with purple.

This card design was in the March Card Buffet line up. The supplies used to create the card were contained in a plastic tub lid and passed around the stamp table. Blender pens were used for coloring the fish. I wrap a piece of scrap paper around the cover at one end to indicate which pen should be used for which color. The pens won’t need to be “brushed out” of color until after the event. This might also save my ink pads from being accidentally dipped with the wrong color:)

Wood Crate CASE

My Wood Crate stamp set and framelits were an immediate purchase when they first became available. I could envision lots of great designs. I have since viewed many samples from fellow demonstrators online.

I used the framelits in my blog hop post which you can see here. So my supplies were already on the stamp table when I came across a fabulous design from Rhonda’s blog which you can see here. I liked the contrast of dark ink against light colored cardstock. The tucked snippet of ribbon on top of a banner adds a nice detail.

I had a request to create sympathy cards so CASED Rhonda’s design and came up with this take on her design.

This was the last task for my day. I added the image to the blog post and set it to publish today.

But, when looking at the stamp set, I used this coordinating stamp first. It looked a little weird but figured that was the stamp that coordinated with the sympathy stamp, wishing the recipient to remember a life with fond memories.

7 19 18 seniorcenter1-001

The rainy night must have cleared my brain because I woke up thinking that the original stamp I used just did not work. There must be another sentiment that fits a sympathy card better. And there was and the sentiment has been replaced on my card.

The stamp set I used is Better Together which has lots of good coordinating sentiments. Just make sure you pick the right one when creating your next card! It is available in wood or clear mount blocks at my online store here.

Beautiful Peacock

I shared this design in yesterday’s blog hop. Thanks for hopping back for the design details. I started with the Tutti Frutti cards and envelopes. Bonus is that they are already cut, scored and have tone on tone “v” design printing. 2 24 2018bloghop3-001

The first layer is a diagonal striped rich razzleberry print that is part of the Sweet Soiree Memories and More card pack. It was originally sized at 4×6 inches. A 1×4 inch piece was cut off so it would fit on the card front.

Next, our delicate white doilie was cut in half and adhered as shown.

2 24 2018 bloghop1-001

Close up of the peacock stamped on a piece of 3 x 3 7/8 inch whisper white cardstock. One of the circle stamps was used to create a daffodil delight inked border along one side and then one opposite corner. The “beautiful friend” stamp was cut using the lemon builder punch layered with a 1 inch circle punched rich razzleberry cardstock piece.

2 24 2018 bloghop5-001

Sponge daubers were used to add daffodil light ink to the wing and head feathers. Crumb cake ink daubed underneath the peacock grounds the bird.

The lemon builder punch was used to create the sentiment.

2 24 2018 bloghop6-001

Stamp the inside of the card with a sentiment from the Lovely Friends stamp set. Decorate the envelope back with daffodil delight inked peacock feathers.
