Dream Cruise by Sharon Harnist


Hello Pink Ink fans -- Sharon Harnist here with you again today! Spring is just 
around the corner and I'm looking forward to this Summer, when my family will 
be taking a cruise! My excitement for that trip definitely inspired today's project 
... I'm using Pink Ink's new Dream Cruise:



To create this card, I stamped the Dream Cruise onto Copic X-Press It Blending 
Card with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then did some Copic airbrushing 
to create the background, using masks:


For complete stepped-out details on how to create the airbrushed background, you can visit my blog post HERE.

Next, I colored the ship and banner images with these Copic markers:


For the tiny flags and other fine details of the pretty ship, I used finer point Atyou Spica Glitter Pens to color them and give a pretty sparkle to the ship and water!


The finished piece was accented along the top and bottom with borders of glitter paper:


Thanks so much for joining me today!

A Lovely Button Heart

 02/02/2017
Hello Pink Ink Fans!  Debbie Seyer here to share my latest Pink Ink Stamps creation.  It time to think of love and chocolate. Well what I mean is it's almost time for Valentine's Day. So with that in mind, I created this fun card using the 7103N Button Heart stamp. I just love this image!



This card measure 4 1/4 x 5 1/2".  To begin, I stamped the image onto white cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink pad.  Using my patterned paper as a guide I picked out the markers and cardstock for this card.  I colored the image using Crafter's Companion Illustrator pens.

These are the colors I used.




Here is a closer look at the Button Heart....

I love how my card turned out!  This Button Heart image is very versatile and is really fun to color.

You can purchase this lovely Pink Ink Stamp at Ellen Hutson LLC

Floppy Spring Bunny by Sharon Harnist


Are you ready for Spring? This sweet Pink Ink Floppy Bunny #1105J seems 
to be!  



I thought he would look cute sitting in some pretty Spring grass. This is 
how I colored him:

I stamped him in soft Memento Gray Flannel ink (as opposed to black) onto Essentials by Ellen 100 Lb. Smooth Bristol cardstock. To keep him mainly white, I used Copic N0 and N1 grays to give him some shading. R000 and R00 were used to color his ears, nose, cheeks, hands and feet.

To give his ribbon a little dimension, I stamped another ribbon separately, colored it with B21 and B23, cut it out and adhered it in place. Don't you love all the fine details of this image, right down to the loopy ribbon?





























To make the grass, I used darker Copic YG25 to flick and draw in the grass line behind the bunny and extending to the right, past his leg. I also flicked some green up onto bunny's leg, to give the illusion of him sitting in real grass. Then I used lighter Copic YG03 to soften the line and extended the color downwards, again using a flicking motion to create the look of blades of grass. Copic B000 was airbrushed around bunny, to create a sky.

After die cutting the colored bunny with a stitched circle die, I popped him up over a soft blue watercolored sky card base. The sweet "Love you" sentiment is from Pink Ink's To The Moon sentiment. Just the top part of it was inked and silver heat embossed onto a stitched banner die cut, making it an adorable Valentine's Day or general love card! Clear sequins scattered on the background complete the card.



















This sweet bunny works wonderfully for Valentine's Day, Spring, Baby announcements or thank you cards ... Isn't he adorable?!!

Thanks for joining me today!  ~ Sharon

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

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.

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!
