First up is the absolutely adorable Happy Fall Combo Set illustrated by Cassie Loizeaux and the incredible Forestscape Panel Die designed by JJ Bolton.

WFC201910-271275 Happy Fall-Channin 1

First I stamped several images from the Happy Fall Stamp Set on Bristol paper in Antique Linen Distress Ink. I then no-line watercolored the image in with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Once I had finished coloring the images in I die cut them with the matching dies. Next, I die cut the Forestscape Panel Die out of two A2 panels. However, I only partially die cut one of the panels with the Forestscape Panel Die to make the tree section. I then ink blended the ground and trees with distress inks (Rusty Hinge, Mowed Lawn & Pine Needles).

Next, I made cloud masks with contact paper and the Cloudscape Panel Die. I then used the masks with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to ink blend a sky onto an A2 panel. I then stamped a sentiment from the Fall Greetings Stamp Set in Versafine Onyx Black. Next, I adhered the extended tree section onto the sky A2 panel. I then adhered the other forestscape panel with foam tape. Lastly, I finished the card by adhering my diecuts with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Adhesive.

Next up is the super fun Go Girl Winter Die Set also designed by JJ Bolton! This wonderful set works perfectly with the many other Go Girl stamps and dies.

WFC201910-310343 Go Girl Winter-Channin 1.JPG

First I die cut my girl’s face, hair, and body using the Go Girl Summer Die Set out of patterned paper and colored cardstock. Next, I die cut the goggles, scarf, and earmuffs out of colored and holographic cardstock using the Go Girl Winter Die Set. I then adhered my girl together and then stamped her mouth using the Go Girl Stamp Set in Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide. Next, I die cut a polaroid frame using the Go Girl Winter Die Set and silver embossed a sentiment with the new Holiday Hugs Stamp Set. I then took the negative from the polaroid frame and die cut it with the Forestscape Panel Die.

I then ink blended the Forestscape diets with ink (WFC-New Fish In Pond, Distress Ink-Mowed Lawn, Pine Needles, Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers). Next, I adhered an A2 panel of patterned paper onto a A2 top-folding card base. I then die cut the polaroid again but this time out of craft foam. I then adhered acetate and the girl to the cardstock polaroid frame. Next, I adhered the foam frame onto the card front. I then adhered the forestscape background into the frame. I then filled the frame with snowflake confetti and sequins and then sealed up the shaker with cardstock frame.

Next up is the bold and graphic Happy Thanksgiving Stamp Set designed by JJ Bolton! This set is great for techniques and of course I had to try some too!

WFC201910-271279 Happy Thanksgiving-Channin 1.JPG

I will have a video on these cards coming Wednesday, October 9th! First, I ink blended an A2 panel with several Distress Oxides (Barn Door, Mustard Seed, Ripe Persimmon, and Peeled Paint). Next, dried the panel thoroughly and then I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

I then stamped several of the leaves in Versamark Ink and then clear heat embossed them. Next, I ink lifted with a squished up damp chamois to create a lighter textured background. I then trimmed the panel down 1/16″ on all sides and then adhered the panel onto an A2 Kraft card base. I then finished the card with clear enamel dots from the WFC’s Clean and Clear pack.

Next up is the sweet Fall Greetings Stamp Set and matching die also illustrated by Cassie Loizeaux!

WFC201910-271276 Fall Greetings-Channin 1

I will have a video on this card coming Wednesday, October 16th. First, I created the background using the Happy Thanksgiving Stamp Set. I first stamped the leaf shadows with WFC’s Coffee Loves Milk dye ink onto an A2 panel of white cardstock. Next, I stamped the colored leaves in several Distress Oxides (Red-Barn Door & Fired Brick, Yellow-Mustard Seed & Fossilized Amber, Orange-Spiced Marmalade & Ripe Persimmon, Green-Crushed Olive & Peeled Paint).

WFC201910-271276 Fall Greetings-Channin 2

I then filled in the white space by making dots with a copic marker. Next, I stamped and copic colored the focal image and sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black. I then die cut a rectangle of vellum with the A2 Layers Die Set and then adhered the sentiment and image with foam tape. Next, I adhered the background panel onto an A2 top-folding card base and then finished the card by adhering the vellum and image with liquid glue.

Next up is the innovative Holiday Hugs Combo Set designed by JJ Bolton!! This is such a fun and creative die and stamp set which creates the coolest cards that can essentially hug you back!!

WFC201910-WFC281 Holiday Hugs-Channin 1

I also have a video coming for these cards on Friday, October 18th. I first die cut 4 arms using the Holiday Hugs Die Set, a front and back for each arm. I then either stamped with the Oversized Merry Stamp Set and Pattern Play Stamp Set or dry embossed with the Lattice Panel Die on the arms and an A2 panel. I then adhered the front and back sides of the arms together. Next, I created a neck line using the Nesting Circle Die. I then trace the neckline onto the A2 panel and then cut out the excess. Next, I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from the Holiday Hugs Stamp Set either onto the panel or a strip of vellum. I then adhered my card by adhering the arms onto another A2 panel and then adhering the panel with a neckline onto top.

WFC201910-WFC281 Holiday Hugs-Channin 2

For the white card, I folded the vellum sentiment strip over the panel before I adhered it to the rest of the card. Next, I stamped and silver heat embossed some snowflakes from the Oversized Merry Stamp Set onto vellum and then fussy them out. I then I die cut mittens from felt and adhered them onto the paper mittens.

WFC201910-WFC281 Holiday Hugs-Channin 4

Added the fussy cut snowflakes onto the aqua mittens as well as onto onto the inside of the card to look like a brooch.

WFC201910-WFC281 Holiday Hugs-Channin 6

I created the buttons on the white card with white enamel dots and I die cut “hugs” and three hearts of white felt and adhered them onto the pink card.

And last but not least is a cute little Thankful Mouse Stamp Set also illustrated by Cassie Loizeaux.

WFC201910-271283 ThankfulMouse-Channin 1

I combined this sweet little guy with his counterpart from the Happy Fall Stamp Set and stamped them and a sentiment onto an A2 panel white cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black. I then copic colored the images. I then trimmed the panel down 1/16″ on all the sides and then adhered the panel onto an A2 top-folding card base made from 110lb red cardstock.

Holiday Release blog hop - banners-3

First up is the adorable Skiing By Stamp Set and matching die!!

PFSSkiingByChannin2.JPG

Hidden Slider with Skiing By Stamp Set

Watch below or on my YouTube channel.

First I constructed my mountain and ski slope layers using two A2 panels and the Skiing By Matching Dies. I also created the channel for my slider with the slope die on the mountain panel. I then created a contact paper mask and then ink blended with Pinkfresh’s new dye inks (coming in October) in colors Seaside and Ocean Breeze on the panels. I also ink blended a sky with Ocean Breeze on an A2 top-folding card base.

PFSSkiingByChannin

Next, I stamped, copic colored, and die cut images from the Skiing By Stamp Set. I then stamped my sentiment on my foreground slope in Memento Tuxedo black. I then assembled my slider, by adding foam squares to the backside of my mountain panel pieces and adhering the pieces to my card base. However, I made sure to pop my penny into the channel before I adhered down the second mountain panel piece.

Once the first part of my slider was complete, I then trimmed down a foam square to make a strip and stick the strip down on the center of the penny. I then removed the backing and stuck a small strip of acetate to it and then adhered my skiing critter to the acetate with a tiny foam square. I then covered my slider channel with my foreground slope using more foam squares to adhere it down. I then finished my card by adhering all the remaining diecuts with liquid glue.

Next is the Season’s Greetings Stamp Set and Matching Die!

PFSSeason'sGreetings-Channin

For this card I first stamped the images on Bristol paper in Antique Linen Distress Ink. I then watercolored the images in with Tombow Dual Brush Pens (Leaves: 346, 158, 126; Berries: 755; Ribbon: 991).

IMG_3677

I then stamped my sentiment in the center with Versafine Onyx Black Ink. I then trimmed my panel down 1/8″ on all the sides and adhered it to the front of an A2 top folding card base. I then finished the card by diecutting the bow out with the matching dies and adhering it to the front of the card with foam tape.

Next up is the super sweet Cozy Christmas Wishes!!

PFSCozyChristmas-Channin

First I stamped the Cozy Christmas Wish stamp onto an A2 panel of red cardstock singly MISTI in Pinkfresh Studio’s Berrylicious Ink. I then colored the image in with Prismacolor Colored Pencils (Greens: PC1005, PC911, PC908; Reds: PC924, PC937; Blues: PC904, PC902; White: PC938).

IMG_3676

Once I had finished coloring I then created a quick mask by stamping the Cozy Christmas Wishes stamp onto a piece of copy paper and then cutting out the center sentiment. I then place my panel back into my MISTI, placed my mask over my panel, and then stamped the Cozy Christmas Wishes stamp again but this time in Versamark Ink. I then poured on gold embossing powder and heat embossed my sentiment.

I then trimmed my panel down 1/8″ on all the sides and ink blended Berrylicious over the edges. Lastly, I adhered my panel down onto an A2 top-folding card base made from 110lb white cardstock.

Next up is the Merry Days Stamp Set with matching die!!

PFSMerryDays-Channin

First I created a jig using some scrap 110lb cardstock and the Merry Days Stamp Set. I then placed the jig in my MISTI, aligned the stamp with the jig, and then loaded the tree’s inner diecuts into the negative spaces in the jig. I then stamped the diecuts in various Pinkfresh inks (Ocean Breeze, Candy Apple, Sunshine, Gathered Twigs, & Tidal Pond). Once I had all my diecuts stamped I copic colored them (E35, BG000, R27, Y15, & YG67).

IMG_3675

Next, I diecut the tree again but this time out of dark green cardstock and craft foam. I then adhered the two together and then inlaid the stamped and colored diecuts. Next, I stamped and red heat embossed a sentiment from the Merry Days Stamp Set onto a strip of dark red cardstock. I then added trimmed and folded the ends to fit across the tree. I finished the card by adhering an A2 panel of light blue cardstock to an A2 top-folding card base, then adhering the tree, and lastly the sentiment.

And last but not least is the Sparkle with Magic Stamp Set!

PFSSparkleWithMagic-Channin.JPG

First I ink blended Pinkfresh’s Summer Shower, Blue Jay, and Stargazer onto an A2 panel of white cardstock. Next, thoroughly dried my panel and then stamped and silver heat embossed the stamps from Sparkle with Magic Stamp Set. To make this process super easy, I used my MISTI and the pattern stamping technique. This allowed me to simply rotate my panel to stamp either half once I had positioned the stamps therefore minimizing the amount of times I had to reposition the stamps!

IMG_3705

Once I had finished stamping and heat embossing my design I then diecut the panel with a rectangle die. Then I adhered the inner rectangle onto craft foam. Next, I finished the card by adhering the inner rectangle and the outer rectangle to an A2 top-folding card base, however before I adhered it, I rotated it 180 degrees to create extra contrast.

Phew!! That’s it!! I hope you enjoyed, thank you so much for stopping by!!

First, I stamped, copic colored, and die cut my images out. I then die cut a second unstamped frame from the white cardstock. I then lined up the the frame stamp in the negative and then stamped the die cut. Next, I aligned one of the mice inside of the frame and stamped it on the cardstock. I then stamped the mouse on a frame that I die cut of acetate in Stazon Jet Black Ink.

Next, I constructed my slider channel on my colored frame mouse and then made a tag with a strip of white cardstock, using one of the new Nesting Circles Dies to round the top and then punching a hole at the top for a twine pull. I also stamped “pull” using the Open Here Stamp Set.

I then popped my tag into the channel and adhered the acetate framed mouse onto and then the colored frame onto of that. I finished my card by ink blending a little New Fish in Pond Dye Ink on the background, then stamped a sentiment from the Rainbows Stamp Set, and lastly adhered my slider and mouse.

Inlaid Diecuts with Blended Panels and Transparency Card Base

Inlaid Diecuts with Blended Panels and Transparency Card Base

Hello all! In today’s video I create bold patterned focal points by combining nesting dies and inlaid diecutting. Watch as I create lots of contrast by simply rotating the diecuts of simple ink blended panels. I also see how I create acetate card base from transparency sheets!

Inlaid Diecuts with Blended Panels and Transparency Card Base

Watch below or on my YouTube channel.

First, I ink blended panels created with either the largest square, circle, or oval from the nesting sets with Distress Oxides. I then die cut the panels with every other die from the nesting sets. Next, I adhered the panels back together on another a black panel but this time I alternated the orientation of the diecuts to create contrast.

I then stamped the inside sentiment onto an A2 panel of white cardstock. I then scored and folded a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ sheet of acetate in half to create a card base.

WFC201909-WFC270 Happy Retirement-Channin 3

I then glued the stamped A2 panel to the inside of the acetate card base and then glued a second blank A2 white panel to the back side of the the card base to hide the glue. I trimmed the inlaid die cut then glued it to the front of the card and on the inside adhered a matching shaped die cut to hide glue.

Hurricane Relief Weekend: Pinkfresh Studio Designer Picks

Hurricane Relief Weekend: Pinkfresh Studio Designer Picks

Hello friends!! I’m popping in today for a very worthwhile cause. Pinkfresh Studio has decided to forego a weekend promo to instead organize a Designer Picks event to raise funds to help those impacted by hurricane Dorian! Pinkfresh will be donating 100% of net profits from sales this weekend (Friday 9/6 – Sunday 9/8) to hurricane relief.

SquareSaleTemplate

Pinkfresh has graciously included in this Designer Picks event! And I am so so happy that I can help in some small way.

So without further ado, let’s reveal my pick and check out my card! 🙂

There is so much to love about Pinkfresh’s latest release, but if you twisted my arm and forced me to choose I think I’d have to say that the Flower Garden Stamp Set. The first card I made with this set I watercolored over embossed resist and I loved the finished results. But I knew later I would have to do some no-line coloring with these beautiful florals as well! So, surprise! That’s what I have to share today!

IMG_3327.jpg

First, I stamped the image in Antique Linen Distress Ink onto a panel, slightly smaller than an A2 panel (4.125″ x 5.375″), of Bristol paper. I then watercolored the images in with my Tombow Dual Brush Pens.

  • Red Flowers: 856 Center: 993, 933
  • Large Purple Flowers: 685 Center: 993, 933
  • Tiny Purple Flowers: 620
  • Yellow Flower: 055, 993, 933
  • Orange Flower: 993, 933 Center: 055
  • Leaves: 133, 379
  • Tiny Stems: 312

Once I had finished coloring, I stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Flower Garden Stamp Set onto black cardstock and then trimmed down with scissors and a paper trimmer.

IMG_3326

I then adhered the panel onto an A2 top-folding card base and added my sentiment with foam tape. Lastly I finished my card with Clear Drops adhered with Nuvo Crystal Drops, Morning Dew.

I hope you all enjoyed! And please head over to Pinkfresh to check out the other incredible designer picks and maybe do a little shopping for a good cause while you are there! 😉

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderful day!
