Mutli-Stamping for the Right At Home Blog Hop

Hello everyone!!  I’m excited to be here with you today to sharing an amazing multi-stamping project created for the Right At Home April Release Blog Hop!!  The design team are delight to full you with inspiration.

july-release

This month Nicole released four clear stamp sets and one background stamp! Super cute all around! For this released I used Right at Home Stamps Banner Alphabet and Banner Alphabet Add-On.  I also used Right At Home very first stamp set Happy Mail.

If you arrived here from Joan’s blog, you are on the right path!!  If you arrived on your own, you will want to start from the beginning, the Right At Home blog as to not miss out on any of the fun.

Take a look at my postcard:

handmade postcard

While looking at the stamp sets, I wonder what could I do differently with these stamps.  It hit me that I could create postcards where the image and message is on the front of the card.

Check out how I created these easy to create postcards:

I started with the banner string.  I used the Mini Misti to do all of my stamping so that I could create more then one postcard at a time. I stamped the string with Versafine Black Ink.

Multi-stamping banner (RAH)

Then I lined the banner stamps on the stamped line so that they are perfectly placed for easy stamping with the Mini Misti.

I left a space for the second “L”.

Line up the pennent stamps (RAH

Using Clearsnap Colorbox Bluebells, I stamped the banner letters on each of the postcards.

I also placed the second sentiment on the bottom of the postcards so that I can stamp both sentiments at the same time.

Stamping the banner stams (RAH)

Then I lined the second L up on the banner line.  Using the Mini Misti to get the L in the right place on all of the postcards.

Stamping second L stamp (RAH)

 

Take al look at one of the finished cards with my handwriting on it.

Postcard Message (RAH)

This one is going out to Nicole the young lady behind these stamps!!

So this one layer postcard is super easy to create but even easier with a Mini Misti!!

So what do you think? Please let me know below.

{Clean and Simple} CASology 203 – Congratulations

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card:

Week 203 - Congratulations

Take a look at my card:

Congratulation ink splatters

I plan on having fun with this cue card this week.  My son’s big day is this Saturday and he has inspired me!  He is such a great son.  He has stayed focused to the very end.  Good grades and dominate in all the sports he played.  He walks away from high school as an All County Football Player, an All County Lacrosse Player and an All Conference Basketball Player.

INSPIRING right!!

This card is for him!

I used STAMPlorations Art Marks Stamp Set, who happens to be our sponsor  this week, to create this card.

Here’s how:

  1. I stamp the different ink splatters and the stars with Versafine ink.
  2. Then I stamped the sentiment using So Suzy Stamp Plum Passion Ink Bite.
  3. To finish the card off I rounded the top corners using the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch board.

Nice and easy!

What do you think?  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

CS Take It Make It: Watercoloring with Inks

Hello everyone!! I’m here with CS Take It Make It: Take a Technique Challenge Inspiration for June.

Our theme is Take a Technique: Lets Get Inky!!

For this month’s challenge the technique we would like you to use more then one type of ink on your project (ink pads, ink sprays, stains, acrylic inks, etc.)  Or more then one color of ink on your project…and don’t forget to include stamping somewhere too!!

This should be super fun to see what you come up with.

Take a look at my card:

Truth (CS Take It Make It)

My new Alex and Ani Art Infusion Feather bracelet is the inspiration for my card this week. When I saw this bracelet, I knew I had to have it.  Its purple and the feather was so pretty.  I immediately wanted to make a card that represented my bracelet.

I stamped the feather from Papertrey Ink What the Doodle: Feather Mini Stamp Set using Versafine Ink.

Then I sprinkled Colorbox Sterling Silver Embossing Powder and heat set it.

Then I used Distress Ink Seedless Preserve to watercolor the feather and the card. I heat set the card then colored more ink on top give the different saturation of this pretty purple color.

Once the card dried, I stamped the sentiment using Concord and 9th Sophisticated Script stamp set using Versafine Black Ink.

The feather represents Truth, Light, and Virtue!!

“Keep Your Heart Light” is what the motto!

So what do you think? I love how this card turned out.

We have two prizes to offer this month, the first is our sponsor prize. This winner will be chosen randomly from all of the entries in the challenge! The sponsor for June: PaperArtsy!

Infusions are water soluble particles with 2 components: dye color pigment suitable for paper/ fabric, mixed with Walnut Stain. The color powder particles dissolve faster than the walnut crystals, so you can control the color-to-brown stain ratio!

Here is the inspiration photo that guided us this time around:

color image

Take a look at my card:

Happy Day (SS)

I was so unsure what I was going to create for this challenge.  Then my new stamp set from Darkroom Door Fine Flowers arrived and I had to try it out.

I love this whimsical flower and thought it would be perfect for this challenge.

To create this card, all I did was score the top of the card front randomly. Then I stamped the flower image using My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink. After that I colored the flowers using Copic V15, V06, V09 and Y19. Once that was completed, I used Concord and 9th Sophisticated Script stamp set to stamp the sentiment.

What do you think?

Now its your turn to give this challenge a try!! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!!

Our sponsor for this challenge is Right At Home!!

The winner of this challenge will receive a $25 gift card to their online store and will be asked to be our Guest Designer for the next month.
