Alcohol Ink and MirriSparkle!!

Sorry… I’ve been away for a bit.  We had our annual warehouse sale this past weekend.  But I’m back and have a lot of new samples to share from the classes we taught!! 


This is another if our new Christmas Card Kits.  

The Green sparkle background behind the Window Scene Dies (from Impression Obsession). Was created using Alcohol Inks daubed on our Silver MirriSparkle paper.  

A very simple technique that makes beautiful backgrounds. Here’s another card doing the same technique, just using different colors. 


This card also used Silver Mirricard to add so shine!  The Balloon Frame and Balloon layers are a couple of our newer dies from earlier this year.

Quick card, but doesn’t look that way!!!

This is another new Christmas card kit.  The blue one is from Impression Obsession ….Mitra designed the original in blue . I did another version in tans and browns, which we made into one of our 2017 Christmas Card Kits.  

Both use 3 shades of ink pads from Impression Obsession.  The ease comes in inking the stamp.  Starting with the lightest shade of ink pad… drag it horizontally across the top 1/3rd of the stamp.  The drag the medium tone over the middle of the stamp , overlapping the lightest shade. Then drag the darkest shade over the bottom potion of the stamp.  Use a stipple brush and “pounce” over the inks that overlap (between the shades) to blend any stark lines or edges.  

Stamp on the top layer.  In ourkit… it Usa glossy layer.

1 kit… 2 cards!!


Another new Christmas card kit…, Holly Joy!!  But this one is unique and a first because there are 2 simplistic , yet different cards that are made with the supplies in this kit. 

With 2 cards colors… Wild Cherry and Leaf Green, you’ll use the same stamps but layer differently to make 2 different cards. 

The Scallop Rectangle Frame Die Set is what makes the difference.   Use the large Die to cut a large red frame, used on the green card and the inner portion is used on the Wild Cherry card.  Similarly, use the smaller frame to cut the white and use the frame on the Wild Cherry card and the inner potion on the leaf green card.  

It’s hard to tell from the photo, but the red frame  and layer are die cut from a new stock called Curious Cosmic Pulsar Red… it’s a really stunning heavyweight red cardstock with a diffused Metallic effect.

The card base is an A2 Silver Stardream card layered with a Large White Layer and a Deep Blue Large Oval Overlay.  This cute 5 Trees stamp is stamped and then embossed with Silver Embossing powder and colored.  Adding a strip of Silver MirriSparkle and rhinestones make this card sparkle!! This picture doesn’t do it justice. 

Stay tuned to see all 5 new kits over the next week or so. 

Cascading Card

CascadeCard-59OO
This is a sample of our New pre-cut Cascading Card.
It has 2 sides that are diagonal tri-folds with slits on the panels, so the 2 panels fit together to make the Cascading Card.
Slits are opposite on the 2 different panels, so they interlock.

This kit is Eclipse Black and Orbit Orange, but there are different color combinations or solid colors available online

Other Papers Used: Pewter, Gravity Grape, Lemon Drop, Eclipse Black & Alien Green Curious Cosmic

Stamps are from Rubbernecker Stamps.
Patterned paper is just from the stash in my stamp room 🙂

Its Been Awhile!


I haven’t been here in a long time and it’s about time that I get back to blogging.
It has been really easy just posting on facebook, but I was reminded that not everyone is on FB (thanks Eden!), so I am going to get more diligent about posting on the blog…or try to anyways 🙂
Here is a sample of a new die cut card – the Triple Scallop Circle Z Fold Card.
We also have this available as a die, so you can cut your own cards.

Color Used:
Card Color – Wild Cherry
Layers – White, Hot Fudge & Nutmeg

Enjoy! and see you soon with another sample.ore

Festive Christmas Slider Card

What a fun..festive Christmas Card.  I had fun making it!

This is one of our Slider Die Cut Cards that I mounted on Red Mirricard and then on a White Steno Card.  The first picture is the Slider Die Cut closed.  The second picture is after you pull up on the red circle tab to move the slider up to reveal what’s on the inside.  The slider die cut is also attached to a folded Steno Card, so you can write a message on the inside of the White Steno Card.

The Slider Die Cut is Basis Light Lime and then I stamped White Dots on it to make it coordinate with the Cut-Out Tree Die Cut from Impression Obsession

Paper Used:
