Baking Day by Sharon Harnist

Hello Pink Ink fans -- Sharon Harnist here. Today I have a fun recipe card
to share with you, made with this darling new Pink Ink Baking Day stamp!
I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a large 5" x 7" recipe
card I created on my computer (free download can be found on my blog,
 here) -- printed onto Copic-friendly Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored 
it with these Copic markers:
Wouldn't this make a great gift set of blank recipe cards for a baking enthusiast friend? I love this sweet retro image!
Thanks so much for joining me today!

Pumpkin Fairy House

Hello Pink Ink Fans! I hope the end of your summer is going well and you're looking forward to the change of seasons into Autumn. 
It's Shelby here today to show you one of the oh so wonderful new stamps from the most recent release at Pink Inks.
 This stamp is called Pumpkin Fairy House.  Isn't it so darn cute?  I decided to make more of an evening/night scene with my coloring because who doesn't love a little sparkle in their lives?  The background was done with Distress Inks with a foam blending tool (stormy sky, tumbled glass, fossilized amber and squeezed lemonade) and the image was colored up with Copic markers.  Copics and Distress Inks (dye inks) are perfect partners since they do not react with each other when they come in contact!
 The stars were created with Bo Bunny glitter paste and a stencil and then I added a few (or more) crystals.
 I cut the image with an oval die twice and the added dimension with different sized foam dots...easy as can be!
Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope I was able to give you a little bit of your fix for Pink Ink!!

Hawthorne & Roses Watercolor Bouquet

Hello everyone!  Heidi, here today and I have a card with a beautiful watercolor bouquet of flowers to share with you.

I stamped the Hawthorne & Roses image using Jet Black StazOn ink on to Strathmore Mixed Media paper.  Then I used Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor paints to color the image.

Here is a close up of the image.  After I was done watercoloring the image then I did a watercolor wash using a couple colors of blue for the background.  To finish off the watercolor I used the black paint on my brush with a little water to create the tiny paint splatters.  Then I used Spellbinders Labels Forty-One to die cut the image.  I also created another die cut to layer in the background using Labels Thirty-Five.  

I embossed the white background piece using a doilies embossing folder from We R Memory Keepers.  To finish off the card I added a hand dyed seam binding bow and a couple of acrylic leaves and a pink rose for embellishments.

Thanks so much for joining me today!

Picket Fence Pumpkins


Hello friends!

I have a new card to share with you created with a beautiful stamp from Pink Ink Stamp Company! Their Fall and Winter release is available now, and there are some really pretty images!

I chose a cute fall scene from the new release called Picket Fence Pumpkins for this card. Such a detailed and fun image to color!

Isn't that a beautiful little Fall scene? I just love it! I stamped it with Hybrid Licorice Black ink from MFT , and watercolored it with my Koi Watercolors. After it was dry, I cut it out with a stitched rectangle dye. I stamped a subtle pattern onto some kraft card stock, and cut that out with a stitched rectangle die just one size larger. I mounted them all onto a white card base with foam tape. 

And here's a little bit closer view of the watercoloring and the beautiful detail in the stamp!
