Skating into the Holidays

Hello Pink ink fans!  Have you checked out the new release?  You can find all of the fantastic new stamps on the Pink Ink website.
For my card today, I used the versatile and wonderful stamp called Pair of Skates (6110) with the sentiment Heartfelt Holidays (10137)
The background was done with a few different stencils with Distress sprays and inks.  To mask the image so I could get messy without worrying about getting ink on to the stamped image, I used liquid frisket.
I colored up Pair of Skates with Copics and a touch of distress markers to fill in some of the smaller detailed areas.  I used picket fence stain and splatter the stain over top to get a subtle hint of white on the work.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!!

Stack O' Pumpkins

Hello everyone!  Heidi  Blankenship, here today and I have an Autumn card to share with you using the Stack O' Pumpkin stamp from Pink Ink Stamp Company.  

The Stack O' Pumpkins is one of the new images from the  new holiday release from Pink Ink Stamp Company.  I used a piece of Strathmore mixed media paper and stamped the image using Jet Black Archival ink from Ranger.  Then I colored the image with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pen.  To create the background I used a few different colors of Distress Inks and blended the colors.

Then I stamped the image a second time on to a piece of scratch paper and fussy cut it to create a mask.  I placed the mask on top of the stamped image and then I took clean water and a paint brush and tapped the water onto the paper.  I let the water droplet sit for a few seconds and then used a paper towel to blot up the water droplets.  I repeated this process a few times and used a heat tool to speed out the drying time.  I wanted to add some shimmer to the background so I tapped my Wink of Stella pen onto the paper--just like when I added the water droplets and then I set the paper aside to dry.

I trimmed the paper down and then I added black craft foam to the back.  I placed the watercolor piece on to a black A2 top folding card base.  To finish off the card I added some Crystal Reflections Sequins from Simon Says Stamp.  I hope you enjoyed today's card share.  I will have all of the supplies listed below.  Thanks for stopping by the Pink Ink Blog today and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Heartfelt Holiday Wishes


Hi all! I hope you are enjoying your weekend. It's been so hot here. I'm so ready for Fall and Winter. I'm just not a fan of summer.  I'd be happy if we could jump from Spring straight into Fall. So to help me feel better about about the heat we're enduring, I made a Christmas card with some of the pretty new stamps from Pink Ink Stamp Company!

I just love this image! I wanted it to look kind of old fashioned and tea dyed, so I watercolored with Distress markers. I stamped first with Simon Says Black ink onto Master's Touch Watercolor paper. The image was cut out with a stitched rectangle die and them mounted with foam tape onto my card. I covered the base of the card with some patterned paper from Penny Black.

This one really put me in the holiday mood! This is my favorite card making time of the year, August through December! I love the fall and winter products! 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and stay cool!


Kay :)

Time for Fall Apples!

Hello Pink Ink Fans! Debbie Seyer here today to share with you my latest Pink Ink card using the new release 2275H Apple Stand. I can't believe how fast the summer has flown by and it's almost apple picking time! This is a fun stamp to color and is perfect for those fall cards!

I stamped the Apple Stand image using Timber Brown Staz-on ink onto some Strathmore Mixed Media paper.  Then using some Aquablend pencils & paintbrush, I watercolor the image.  I added some olive green patterned paper, lace, twine and a button to the card.  Then I stamped the "Thinking of You" sentiment onto white cardstock using brown ink.  I used a label punch to punch out my sentiment and adhered it into place using some 3d foam squares.  Here is a closer look....

This was so much fun and relaxing to color!  I hope you enjoyed my fall Apple Stand card. Thanks for stopping by today!
