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!

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!

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!

Grant Me The Serenity and More Foiling Fun!

Hi Everyone! Here is a fun project that features one of the wonderful digi sets from Polka Dot orchard called Grant Me The Serenity.  Now I am  on a total foiling kick and what I really love about this project is that you can really put together something pretty that is really rather quick and easy. I have used a background image from the set and printed it from my laser printer onto pink cardstock. I then used the coffee cup and sentiment images which are also from the same set and did the layout in Microsoft Word and then also printed out on white xpressit cardstock from my laser printer. I then did a little shading using Copics on the coffee cup and on the flowers that are on the coffee cup. I then ran both the background and the sentiment and coffee cup image through my laminator and used Gina K. Fancy Foils in Passionate Pink by Thermoweb. I then set up my layers and used some Scor-Tape to attach everything. I really love how this came out!

You can find this digi set and many more at Polka Dot Orchard which you can find here:  https://www.etsy.com/shop/PolkaDotOrchard and for foils and scor-tape and so many other great things check out Scrapsalot here: http://www.scrapsalottampa.net/.

Unicorns, Sparkles and a Discount, Oh My!

Hello Friends!
Today I am playing with some amazing products from Scrapsalot. I have tried to give you a feel of how amazingly sparlky this project is and  have photographed using different outdoor light so that you can hopefully get at least a little feel for the sparkle.


I have to admit that I am totally loving foiling on projects! And as you can see today is no exception. I am using Rainbow Shattered Glass Deco Foil Transfer Sheets from Thermoweb, and I am totally loving the effect! I used it as my main background layer along with Inkon3 Magical Unicorn Stamp Set.  I stamped out the unicorn and the sentiment with the Midnight Catherine Pooler Ink Pad.  I colored up the image with Copics. 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!

America My Hero With Polka Dot Orchard

Hi Everyone! Today I am playing with the America My Hero Digi Set from Polka Dot Orchard. This is am amazing set that has so many images as well as sentiments in it! Check out what I came up with.

I actually used two parts from this set, the sentiment and the star background. I printed these digi images using my laser printer, then, for the star background, I used Thermoweb Decofoil in Deep Blue and ran it through my laminator. Then for the sentiment, I used Gina K. Fancy Foils in Red Velvet, and again ran it through my laminator.
Some red and blu cardstock for the layers and finally some sequins from Kindred Stamps from the She's Wonderful collection and a little Imagine Crafts On Point Glue to adhere the sequins. So, what do you think? I would love to know...
Hugs,
Judy

We Are 3 has these Perfect Images, Digi papers and Sentiments! Take A Look!

Hi Everyone!

We Are 3 Digital Shop is the Sponsor this weekend at Passionate Paper Creations!
Join their Facebook Page here...
https://www.facebook.com/groups/WeAre3DigitalShop/
And you can shop here .......https://www.etsy.com/shop/WeAre3

Check out this project that I made! It uses We Are 3 Happiness Is Digital Image and We Are 3 Digi Papers Pinkalicious Pink Floral and We Are 3 Sentiments Positive Thoughts and now take a look!
I really love all these pieces which came from We Are 3. This image has a precolored version as well as a black line version. I did use the black line version and colored it up using Copics.

Now one think I really love about digis is that if I print them out using my laser printer, I can then use foiling by running the image, and in this case the sentiment through a laminator. The toner used in laser printers will act as a bond with foils. So I did foil the sentiment in Pink Quartz fromDeco Foil. I added some sequins on my project as well as the pink bow for some added interest. The sequins are Shortcake Shaker Pack from Kindred Stamps. I also used Dotted Oval Dies by Stamps Of Life to cut my oval layers.

I have tried to give you a few slightly different views of the project so you can get a better idea of the colors and how light hits these sparkly accents.
So please check out We Are 3! Their digis are amazing!!!!
