Ombre Circles Birthday Card

I picked up a Hero Arts Ombre ink pad (Ombre Mermaid) a while ago, and never liked anything stamped with it enough to post. I pulled it out again..this I like!

Distress Ink Enveloper Note Cards

I had my Waffle Flower Enveloper Little Birdie stamp set out, and I have been wanting to just use ink on it (no embossing powder, no hand coloring, no painting).

The “possibilities” card is regular Distress inks, the “thanks” card is Distress Oxide inks. I used my MISTI, and cleaned the stamp between ink colors. The ink blending happened on the paper, not on the stamp.

Supplies: Stamps – Simon Says Stamp, Waffle Flower, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, inks – Hero Arts Unicorn, Tim Holtz/Rander Distress Inks Abandoned Coral, Picked Raspberry, Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Oxide inks Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean, Squeezed Lemonade, VersaFine Onyx Black, embossing powders – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, Stampendous Detail clear, organdy ribbon – Offray.

Floral Wreath Birthday Card – Ellen Hutson June 2018 Color Trend Challenge

I dug deep and finally completed another challenge. This is for the Ellen Hutson June 2018 Color Trend Challenge .

Here is the inspiration:

In reality, I loved everything on the inspiration board, but thought I would execute something too close to the inspiration. So, I stuck to it being a color challenge.

I cut a 5 inch square of white cardstock, and used my homemade wreath builder tool to build the wreath on my MISTI. After I was done stamping, I did trim 1/8th of an inch from each side, to give me space for the black mat.

I have stashed it away for personal use.

Supplies: Stamps – Clearly Besotted, Essentials by Ellen, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, inks – Hero Arts Unicorn, Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Inks Chipped Sapphire, Crushed Olive, Lucky Clover, Mowed Lawn, Shaded Lilac, Tumbled Glass, Wild Honey, Wilted Violet, die – Spellbinders, sequins – Pretty Pink Posh, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder white.
