Go With The Flow

Sometimes you really do just need to Go With The Flow! Check out these cuties from The Ink Road Stamp Company. I just adore all the wonderful things from The Ink Road. That is probably why my wish list is so long. So, without further ado...

This project uses a stamp set from The Ink Road called Shell Yeah. I have used the assorted mermaids and some of the element features in a box card to give more depth to the scene. I have also used some of the fabulous Ink Road Bling mixes which you can see in the photo. I really love how this came out. So check out The Ink Road here! I think you will love what you find!

It's Time For Challenge #118 at Scrapy Land and it is Anything Goes!

Who is up for an Anything Goes Challenge? You need to use any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells. There are TWO WINNERS for each challenge. One will be a random winner and the other is chosen by the Design Team. Each winner will receive a generous $10 gift certificate to Scrapy Land.

Scrapy Land carries over 55 brands of dies, so chances are you have a few of the brands in your stash! You can see all the brands carried under the Products category.
Please link back to this Scrapy Land Challenge and include the link to this challenge on your blog post. It would also be extremely helpful if you would list the brands of dies used in your project. (Sometimes we can't tell if an item is a die cut or chipboard.)

And without further ado, here is my project for this challenge!
For this project I used Magical Unicorns Stamp Set and Magical Unicorn Die Set from Pink And Main  and Lawn Fawn Clouds Dies from Lawn Fawn. I colored the unicorns with Copics and used Momento Tuxedo Black to stamp the sentiment.
 
Now it's your turn!  You have until August 5th to upload your project to the Scrapy Land Challenge.  We love seeing everything from CAS, layouts, mixed media, planners, and anything else you can think of as long as it includes at least one brand of die that Scrapy Land sells.
 
Hugs,

Coffee!!!!!

Hello Friends!
Today I am playing with some super fun products from Scrapsalot and Ink Road! 
For this fun and caffeinated project I used Mug Life Background Stamp Set by Ink Road, stamped with Versamark and then embossed with white embossing powder, and used my heat gun.
I then proceeded to use distress oxides and apply with a brush for the gradient. I wiped down the panel with a paper towel which then really brought out the white contrast.
I topped it off with another Ink Road Stamp Set called Mug Life. The beauty of this background stamp is that you can really use it with many different beverage sets, as there are an assortment of hot and cold beverage images on it. I stamped the sentiment and image with Momento Tuxedo Black and added a bit of color with Copics.
Finally, I used Score Tape to put everything together, and I just love how this turned out!
I would love to hear what you think about this project! Please leave me a comment and let me know!
And definitely check out Scrapsalot,  and while you are there, here is a code for a 10% discount on your order! Just enter JUDY10 at checkout for your discount!
More fun to follow!!!!

It's Time For Tuesday TTT-July 16-Easy Foil Backgrounds with Creative Inspiration Forum

Hi Everyone! I am excited to be here with all of you as a new member of the Creative Inspiration Design Team! For this weeks Tuesday TTT I am going to share a super quick, easy way to apply foil that can have a fun impact, and lets you play with foil before having to commit to a laminator or other foiling type machine.
First keep in mind, foil can be applied, for the most part, by using something sticky, heat, pressure, or a combination of these. With that said, I am going to create two backgrounds, one using sticky dots and one using scor-tape.
For the first one, I am simply applying sticky glue dots in a random fashion to my cardstock

Next I am applying the foil sheet, shiny side up, on top of my sheet and rubbing gently with my fingers to burnish the foil to the adhesive. It will look like this...
For my second background I am actually using two different thicknesses of scor-tape to create a pattern background. I am using the same technique. And because I am using the scor-tape I can use different colors of foil to create added interest.  However, I am only using one color of foil for this background.



 So what do you all think?
Here are my finished projects.
I would love to see you give it a try! Let me know what you think! And check out Creative Inspiration Forum, register and come play!
Some helpful product links for you are Score TapeRainbow Shattered Glass Foil, Gold Shattered Glass Foil and No Probllama Stamp Set from Honey Bee. Also, definitely check out Scrapsalot,  and while you are there, here is a code for a 10% discount on your order!
