Hi everyone!  I'm so lucky to be designing this month for Sweet Stamp Shop.  I got to play with their brand new release and today's video showcases a brand new stamp set called "That's What She Said."  It's such a fun tongue in cheek set and if you ever watched the TV show The Office, you'll get a kick out if it, I'm sure.  It's also a great birthday set for standard birthday cards.  Here's my video:

And here are some pictures of my card:




To create these cards, I inked some distress oxide ink onto the panel (for the pink, I used Picked Raspberry, for the gift box, I used Salty Ocean).  I then colored the images with my Zig Markers and a water brush, added the sentiments to the Kraft panel using the same Oxide ink, added the sentiment with black ink to the main panel, then popped the images with foam tape.  Super simple but fun.  To purchase the stamp sets, head over to Sweet Stamp Shop.

Hi everyone!  It's Christine here for Butterfly Reflections Ink and I have a new card and video tutorial to share with you today.  I'm really excited to share today's project.  It uses a brand new release from Honey Bee Stamps.  I was blown away with Honey Bee Stamp's most recent release and I bought almost the entirety of it from Vanessa's shop.  Here's today's video:

And here are some pictures of my card:





To create today's card, I first created the background.  To do that, I inked a piece of Canson XL Watercolor Paper (cut slightly smaller than an A2 sized card base) with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide InkCandied Apple Distress Oxide Ink, and Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink.  I then spritzed some water from my Distress Sprayer onto the panel and then let it dry.  Next, I used a heart stencil from my stash and applied some Gold Glitter Paste to the stencil, which resulted in the beautiful gold hearts you see on the panel.  Next, I stamped the Forest Friends Stamp Set from Honey Bee Stamps onto some Canson XL Watercolor paper and then painted the image with my Zig Markers and my Detailer Water Brush.  I used the following Zig Markers:
Bear: Dark Brown, Brown, Light Pink, Pink (for cheek), and Black
Hedgehog: Brown, Light Brown, Light Pink
Basket: Light Brown, Cornflower Blue
Bunny: Gray, Light Gray, Light Pink, Light Blue (For slight shadow on tail)
Bird: Brown, Yellow, Orange (for beak) and Light Pink

I then cut the image out using the Coordinating Forest Friends Honey Cut Dies and then adhered it to my distressed panel with foam tape.  Next, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark Ink onto some black cardstock and embossed it with white embossing powder.  I then cut it out and adhered it with foam tape. I then adhered the entire panel to a standard A2 sized card base.  What do you think?

Thanks so much as always for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day!

(To view on YouTube, click HERE)

And here are some pictures of my card:







To create my card, I first cut a piece of Neenah Desert Sand Kraft Cardstock to 4" x 5 1/4".  I then applied some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink and some Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink to the Kraft cardstock and then added some water with my Distress sprayer for a little distress effect.  I then used a snowflake stencil from EK Success, placed it on top of my Kraft cardstock, and added some Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Sparkle Texture Paste over the stencil to create the glitter snowflakes (you could use any embossing paste that you have for this technique).  Next, I painted the Yeti with  my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a water brush (I used Light Blue, Gray, Light Gray, Peacock Blue, and Sugared Almond Pink for the Yeti) and then coated him with my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush.  I so painted the little boy and the little girl (skin tones for both here Flesh Color, Blush, and Sugared Almond Pink; Girl's hat and jacket were Violet and Light Violet, scarf was Red, Hair was Dark Brown and Brown; Boy's hat and scarf were Red and Cornflower Blue, jacket was Cornflower Blue, Hair was Brown and Light Brown).  I then cut the images out and cut slits in the arms with an Exacto knife so the kids could rest in the Yeti's arms.  I then stamped my sentiment from the Sentiments from a Yet Stamp Set from Mama Elephant with Versamark ink onto black carestock and embossed it with white embossing powder.  I tapered the end to give it a "V" shape and then adhered it and the Yeti onto the snowflake panel.  I then adhered that to some black cardstock and then adhered the entire panel to a white A2 sized card base.  I also added some dark blue twine to the top.  What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by.  Hugs!

To create this card, I first created the background panel using Broken China Disteress Oxide Ink and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink.  I blended the colors together, then spritzed some water over the panel to look like snow.  I also added some shimmer spray from Hero Arts.  Next, I cut out my mountains using the Stitched Mountain Borders Die from Lawn Fawn.  I used some gray cardstock and some white glitter cardstock for the mountains.  Next, I cut out the tree line using the Forest Border die from Lawn Fawn.  I inked the tress with Mowed Lawn distress ink and also spritzed them with water.  I then created two snowy hills using the Stitched Hillside Border Dies from Lawn Fawn.  I slightly inked the hills with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  That's how I created my scene, it was super easy to do.

Next, I painted all my images with Zig markers and a water brush.  Here are the colors I used:
Yeti: Light Blue, Pink, Light Pink, Gray, Light Gray
Star Banner: Brown and Yellow
Girl on Yeti
 -hat - Peacock Blue, Light Pink

Video Tutorial - Lawn Fawn - Booyah - Creating a fun Halloween Scene

Hi everyone!  It's Christine here for Butterfly Reflections Ink and I'm so excited to share this fun Halloween care with you today.  I have created a video tutorial for my card today and if you are interested, you can view it here:
(To view on YouTube, click HERE)

And here are some pictures of my card:







To create my card, I first cut out the tree scene using the awesome Leafy Tree Backdrop: Portrait Die from Lawn Fawn.  This die also comes in a Landscape Orientation as well.  I can't say enough good things about this die set.  It is so easy to create fun scenes and believe me, well worth the money :)  Anyway, I cut this out and then I created my starry night sky background using my Gansai Tambi Watercolor - 36 Color Set.  I next adhered my cute black picket fence (cut from the adorable Picket Fence Border Die from Lawn Fawn) to the watercolor night sky panel.  I then adhered the Leafy Tree Backdrop: Portrait Die on top of the scene.  Next, I stamped my adorable ghosts and accessories from the Booyah Stamp Set from Lawn Fawn and then colored them with my Zig markers and my Detailer water brush.  I used the Booyah Coordinating Dies to cut everything out and then coated the ghosts with my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush.  I then cut out the cat die from the Scalloped Treat Box Haunted House Add-On Die Set from Lawn Fawn and adhered him with Foam Tape to the card.  I added some eyes from the Doodlebug Eye Cand Shape Sprinkles for a fun touch.  I adhered my ghosts and accessories to the card with Foam Tape as well.  I then adhered the entire panel to an A2 sized card base with Foam Tape.  What do you think?

Well, that's from me today.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!!
Hugs, Christine
