Felt Stocking by Sharon Harnist

1 Dec 2016
Is everyone ready for December?  Our stockings are finally hung by the 
chimney with care, but this pretty one is filled with lots of goodies already!  
Isn't this Pink Ink Stamp Company Felt Stocking the sweetest?!!  All of 
the fine details just amaze me and they really pop when gold heat embossed
 ... I adore all the stitching!


I stamped and gold heat embossed the stocking onto white pearl shimmering 
cardstock, then colored it with Copic markers R20-22-24, YG25-17, B21-23-24, E42-43, C0-1.

Next, I hand trimmed the image. To create the background, I airbrushed Copic Y17 onto the center of an Inchie Arts 4-inch White Art Square. Then I gold heat embossed the adorable Heartfelt Holiday sentiment.

To finish this art piece, I adhered 1/4-inch blue glitter tape around the edges.  Finally, the stocking was popped up with foam tape. 

Thanks so much for joining me today, I hope your December and holidays are lovely!

Circle of Joy Christmas Card

30/11/16


Hello everyone!  Heidi, here today and I have a Chrsitmas card to share with you using the Circle of Joy stamp



To start I stamped the image using VersaMark ink on to a piece of Strathmore mixed media paper.  Then, I added gold embossing powder and used a heat tool to melt and heat set the powder. Next, I colored the image using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens.  All of the colors are listed below in the supplies.  


Here is a close up of the stamped image.  I layered the stamped image on to a piece of gold mirror paper and added foam squares for some dimenstion. To create the circle die cuts I used 145E Circle Layering Die Set and 1455E Scalloped Circle Layering Die Set from Tonic Studios. 


I added a piece of pattern paper from the KaiserCraft Christmas Wishes collection to a white A2 top folding card base.  Then I added some white/gold twine and tied a bow.  To keep the ends of the twine from fraying I added some Ranger Multi Medium Matte adhesive to the area I was going to cut.  It dries with a matte finish so you can't even see it's there.  Once it was dry I trimmed the ends on the twine--and no fraying.  



I hope you enjoyed this Christmas card.  Thanks for stopping by today!  Stay warm and Happy Holidays!

Heidi

CAS Stitched Bird 4 x 4 set of Cards

31/10/16
Hello everyone!  Heidi, here today and I have a CAS (Clean And Simple) set of birthday cards to share with you.  



I made a set of 4 x 4 birthday cards using the 2276E Stitched Bird and 10101D Happy Birthday My Friend stamps.  I used VersaMark ink to stamp the images and then I added gold embossing powder.  I used a heat tool to heat set and melt the powders.  


Then I added some NUVO crystal drops for embellishments. 


I layered the stamped panel on top of a piece of gold mirror cardstock and then added that to a 4 x 4 white card base.  


This is a great card set to have on hand for when you need a quick birthday card or it would be perfect for gift giving.  

I hope you enjoyed this CAS card share.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hugs,
Heidi

Ice Skate Christmas

 Oct 26, 2016
Hello, Pink Ink Fans -- Sharon here with you today!  I have a wintery framed 
Christmas art piece to share with you, using Pink Ink's beautiful
Pair of Ice Skates and Merry Christmas Oval images: 

I started by stamping the images onto a white Inchie Arts 4-inch Art Square with 
Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Next, I colored the images with the Copic markers, 
Lavender and Sepia Multiliners, and Clear and Silver Atyou Spica Glitter pens 
shown below:

To build up the dimension of the skates, I colored and cut out another skate and popped it up on foam tape over the front original skate:


I love the dimension this gives the piece!


To finish the piece, I used an Essentials by Ellen Stitching Lines die to emboss faux scalloped stitches into the Art Square along the top and bottom. Then rows of clear gemstones were added below and above the stitching.


The piece was placed into a 4-inch white frame, to display during the holidays.

Thanks so much for joining me today!

Stitched Bird

10/10/16

Hello! I hope you all had a nice weekend. I had some time to play in my craft room yesterday, so I made a card using  a pretty new Christmas stamp from Pink Ink Stamp Company called Stitched Bird.




I stamped my design with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic Markers. I cut the image out with a double stitched Circle die. I used some Christmas patterned paper that I had in my stash for the background. I scalloped the edge of the snowflake paper with a stitched scalloped die before gluing it over the red paper.


I tied a piece of Baker's Twine around the card and added a few PPP marshmallow sequins to finish it up!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a happy week!

Kay :)

A Golden Felt Stocking!

 06/10/2016
Hello Friends! Debbie Seyer here today to share with you my latest Pink Ink Stamps card. I have been on a mission to start my Christmas cards early this year. So I got out some of my patterned paper stash and some Pink Ink Stamps and had some fun!


This card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2".  I decided to stick with a gold metallic theme for the card so I got out my gold embossing powder and heat tool.  To start, I inked up the 6111K Felt Stocking stamp with some VersaMark embossing ink.  Then I sprinkled it with Nuvo  Classic Gold embossing powder.  This is my new favorite embossing powder because it is just so shiny!  I also stamped the 10136A Merry Christmas Oval sentiment and heat embossed it also. After I heat embossed the sentiment, I cut it out like a banner and tied some gold cording at one end to make it look a bit like a tag.  After putting everything together, I think it turned out really nice.  This would be an easy card to do assembly-line style.  I made 6 in less than 30 minutes!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Stitched Bird by Sharon Harnist


Hello Pink Ink fans -- Sharon Harnist here with you today!  Today I have a
transitional card for you. "Transitional" meaning it still feels like summer
but it's getting close to Fall and the holidays!  I've used one of the new
stamps from Pink Ink's new holiday 2016 collection, but colored it in summery
colors (which could be used any time of the year!). You can easily change
the colors to reflect whatever season or holiday you would like!




I stamped Pink Ink's adorable Stitched Bird with Memento Tuxedo Black ink 
onto X-Press It Blending Card, and then colored it with these Copic markers: 
BG53-45-57, Y32-35-38, RV52-63-55 and Clear, Pink, Lemon, and Turquoise 
Atyou Spica Glitter Pens:



Copic C0 was used to shadow underneath the bird.  Lockhart Stamp Company's "thanks a bunch" sentiment was added, then the images die cut with a stitched circle die. The image was popped up with foam tape over a bubble background I created. Full instructions for the background can be found HERE on my blog.

Is it Fall yet in your part of the country?  Happy stamping!
