InkOn3 Dance & Twirl Blog Hop

Hope you're ready for some cuteness overload! It's new release day over at InkOn3.
And it's adorable!!! 
Wanna see??? Here ya go.

How cute is this stamp set??? The moment I say it, I was in love. Here's a pic of my blog post the other day.

Now, on to my project for this hop. I might say, the giraffe was my favorite image right from the start!

I mean...come on! Cute right? 
How do you get any cuter than this? I stamped out the images onto the bits left after die cutting this frame/window die from Pretty Pink Posh. I used Blackout ink. It's a great, dark black ink for any coloring medium. I set about to color my images using my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

I made the three smaller windows into shakers. I filled them with seed beads. 
Instead of mounting the larger image under the acetate, I mounted it on the outside using foam tape for added dimension. 
I brushed a glitter/sparkly pen over the tutu and the sentiments.

Ok...don't look too close. I made a big mistake....but I wasn't gonna go back and fix it. I'd have had to start all over! I forgot to color the flowers in the hair on the three small images. My bad, lol.
Just pretend, oh?

I ran a piece of hot pink paper through an embossing folder. I like the added texture of the dots. I mounted that to an A2 sized card base of heavy white cardstock. I then added the shaker element onto the top of that using liquid glue. 

So, that's it. Hope you enjoyed my project. Here's the list for the blog hop lineup.

Dance, Dance, Dance

Hi Crafters, Cheryl here today, with another project ad a sneak peak at the new release stamp set this month for InkOn3. 
And it's a super cute one!!!

Dance & Twirl
Isn't it just adorable!!!

Let me show you the tag I made using one of the images and sentiments.

EEK!!! I loved these images the moment I saw them. Stinkin Cute!!!
I pulled out my Copic markers and colored this adorable dancing mouse. I can't even! Anyway, I colored it up and cut it out with my Brother Scan n Cut...the dies weren't available at the time of this post.
I brushed on some sparkle brush and added some white gel dots to her top.

I cut a tag using a die from My Creative go to tag die, for sure! I laid a stencil over it from Altenew. I used an ink blending tool and some green inks from Altenew and blended it on, dark in the center going out to light. I then brushed some sparkle brush marker over the "rays".
I attached the mouse to an Action Wobbler and centered it over the rays.

I stamped the word Dance three times using Blackout ink and cut them out with the Scan n Cut. Glued them all together, brushed with a sparkle pen and coated with Glossy Accents. Set aside to dry!

I then pulled out the sub sentiment and stamped in the teal color. I cut it using the tag die again to get the same stitching on the edges. I aligned it near the bottom of the tag and attached with liquid glue.

I added some gems from Studio Katia and when the Glossy Accents was dry I added "Dance".

To finish off the top, I tied a bit of ribbon and twine matching the colors in the project.


Isn't it just the cutest??? I love those Action Wobblers. They make everything so fun. 
I hope you like my tag today and go pull out some of your supplies and make something pretty of your own.

Here's what I used.

Dance & Twirl Stamp Set

There you go. No link to the stamp set as it in the store of this posting, sorry.

Happy crafting,

Thank You Tag And Pocket

Hey crafty friends, Cheryl here today for a post for InkOn3.

I made a fun tag good for any reason. I made a thank you tag. You could tie it on a goodie bag or attach it to a card base. Tags are so fun and good for any occasion.

I pulled out a pocket die I have in my stash from My Creative Time. It's such a fun pocket and the tags fit perfectly. I cut it first from white heavy weight cardstock and then from some lighter weight patterned paper from Lawn Fawn. I then glued it to the white base.

I then stamped my image onto patterned paper and white heat embossed using Juicy embossing ink and Arctic White embossing powder from InkOn3. I then used the coordinating dies and cut out one of the florals and the little butterflies. 
For the tag, I first die cut it and then stamped and embossed.

For the tag, I first die cut it and then stamped and embossed. Again using Juicy ink and Arctic White embossing powder. I layered the top layer onto the bottom one and then added the reinforcement circle. I also cut one in plain white paper and attached to the back for a place to write your note.

I stamped a thank you sentiment and embossed it as well. 

So that's it. Super easy but super cute and can be made for any occasion or holiday. The sky is the limit on something like this.

Here's the shopping list.

Studio Katia - Crystals
Lawn Fawn - Patterned Paper

So that's it. Get out your supplies and craft up your own designs. I hope that this gives you a few ideas!

InkOn3 Embossing Powders Blog Hop

Hey Crafter! Let's hop, shall we?

Today is a new exciting product release! EMBOSSING POWDERS!!!
Yep, that's right. And they are amazing! Super fine, no added waxes or fillers, and they melt amazing!

Arctic White
Gold Rush

Let me show you what I did using the Chrome.

I used the Dogwood Flower stamp set to create a frame around a 4 x 4 piece of cardstock. I stamped using the Juicy ink and added the Chrome embossing powder and melted it. This is a fabulous silver! It is so shiny and you have got to see it in person. Photos and descriptions don't do it justice.

I also created a matching envelope using the Envelope Punch Board from We Are Memory Keepers. The directions are on the board for the size envelope you wanna make. 
I then die cut a label using a die from my Spellbinders stash. I stamped the sentiment and embossed again using the Chrome. I cut a second label from silver glitter paper, cut it in half, and attached it so the two ends show the glitter.
I attached the 4 inch square panel to a 4.25 x 4.25 card base using foam tape. I then added the label, also with foam tape.

I tried my best to capture the shine. This shows a bit. It's hard on white but I wanted this to look really clean. I added a few crystal gems to the front and I brushed my Spectrum Noir sparkle brush into all the flowers. The sparkle is amazing! You gotta try this powder so you can see for yourself!

Here is the blog hop line up.

Brand New Product Showcase

Today we are showcasing a brand new product from InkOn3!!!
How exciting is that??? Any guesses?
Yes, and they're amazing, too. 

 This is amazing powder. It's milled to ultra fine and no added waxes or fillers. It is the finest I've used! You are gonna love it!
So, here's what I did using the Arctic White and the Gold Rush powders.

I have some widow sheets that you can emboss on. So I used my anti static powder very liberally!!! I then stamped my image with Juicy ink and poured on the Artic White powder. And then used my heat tool to melt it. Keep your tool moving or the acetate will warp.

 Then I choose to use a white woodgrain paper for my card front. I used the coordinating die for the floral stamp and cut it in the center of the card front. Next, I aligned the embossed acetate so it fit right in. I had already added double sided tape to the back of the card front so it would stick right in place. I then used a double layer of foam tape all around the window to fill with sequins.

I wanted to totally fill the space so that all you would see is the sequins making the color of the flower. I chose shades of purples. I then closed up the back with some purple cardstock to carry on that color.
I cut a strip of vellum and stamped the sentiment after prepping with my anti static powder. I poured on the Gold Rush embossing powder and melted with my heat tool. I backed it with the same purple cardstock and wrapped the edges behind the card front.
I finished off with a few sequins and attached the card front to an A2 card base of heavyweight white cardstock.

So, there you have it. This embossing powder is fantastic and I know you will love it. It melts so smooth! And the white is VERY white! And the Chrome??? Well, it's my favorite!

Here's where you can get these items.

Head on over and check out the store. Fleurette has such cute stuff. And the inks are great! And you will love these new powders.

Happy Crafting!

Hey You...

Hey crafters, Cheryl here today, with a super cute slider/window card to share with you.
Here's the stamp sets I used.

This is probably one of my all time favorite InkOn3 stamp sets! I mean, come on, what's not to love???
Anyway, I stamped out a few of the images and colored with Copic markers. And I didn't even do any shading, simple one marker coloring. Maybe I better show you what I used to make the card first.

I used this die set from Lawn Fawn. There are videos on YouTube to show how to assemble, it's easy!
On the pull tab/slider piece I stamped "Hey You" using the Phat Alphanumeric stamp set using Blackout ink. I colored them in with Copic markers and stamped a few stars.

 I cut one piece of cardstock just a tad smaller and stamped my inside. The dragon, the flame, and the candle. I also stamped some stars.

 I again colored these with simple one marker coloring. On the flame and candle I used two. Following the instructions in the Lawn Fawn assembly video I closed up my slider. I'll link the video at the end.
Then I went through my patterned papers and pulled out some to match my color pallet. I picked a blue pattern and adhered it to an A2 card base of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock. 
I then added the slider to the front of that on an angle. 
I picked out some gems and sequins and added to the front. DON'T put any in the way of the pull tab slider or it won't open. Ask me how I know, lol. I pulled out my Nuvo glimmer brush and picked a few areas to add shimmer to. It makes things look so pretty!

And that's it! It's so fun to make this type of card and fun for the recipient! If you're a paper engineer, you could probably make this slider from scratch. I'm not, and knew I'd use this often so I picked up from Amazon. Glad I did!

Ok, take some time for you and sit down to "play" with supplies you have.
Happy Paper Crafting!

You Are Fabulous

Hi my crafty friends! It's Cheryl, here, with another project using the newest release from InkOn3.
And it's such a beautiful image and very fun to color!
Here's my project.

I used a die from my stash that creates a rosette. I love rosettes! Anyway, I die cut it from kraft cardstock, Neenah Dessert Storm. You need to cut two. I folded on the score lines and adhered the ends together. It's best to use hot glue for this as it needs to be a really strong bond. Here is a video of how to assemble. 
I stamped out the dogwood image using Juicy embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I then die cut the image using the coordinating die and colored with my Mermaid Markers from Jane Davenport. I then stamped out the sentiment onto a banner strip using Juicy and embossed in white.

I mounted the image onto the rosette with foam tape. I then positioned my sentiment near the bottom but not to hide too much of the image. I also used foam tape for this. 
I scattered about some sequins in metallic green and pink. I used liquid glue and held in place a few seconds, as I glued them to the mountain folds of the rosette and I didn't want them tipping. 
I threaded a bit of twine through the holes at the top. I then took the entire element and glued it to a circle die cut in pink that's a bit bigger than the rosette. It really draws in the pink of the dogwood blooms. As a final bit of bling, I pulled out some chunky glitter I've had for ages!!! I dabbed on tiny dots of my liquid glue to the centers and dropped on tiny bits of the glitter. It really adds such great texture and a bit more sparkle. Not being able to stop  myself, lol, I brushed a bit of Nuvo glitter brush over just the petals of the flowers. There, I'm finished with this, for

Here's where you can get what I used.

InkOn3 Blog Hop...

Hello crafty friends! 
Time for a new release from InkOn3!
And it is another gorgeous floral! Wait till you see it and all the inspiration from the Design Team!

Here's what I did with it.

How pretty is this dogwood stamp??? I love this. So simple and yet so beautiful!
I stamped and embossed the image using Juicy ink and white embossing powder. I proceeded to color them using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I used the softest gray and pulled it out with a water brush. I wanted it really pale as I wanted white dogwood blossoms. For the leaves I used two shades of gray. And then I used the coordination die and cut it out.

I then prepared my card base buy using a stitched rectangle die. Then cut an oval from the center. I backed it with acetate and then made a dam of foam tape. I filled it as full as possible, I didn't want much movement. Then put a piece of white cardstock to hold all the bits in. 

For the card base, I cut a piece of silver glitter paper and trimmed 1/8 off the sides to get a thin white border. After adding that to the card base, I added the shaker part to it using liquid glue.

I added the floral piece over top the window using thin foam tape. I die cut the sentiment from the same silver and also from white fun foam. I stamped the sub sentiment on black using Juicy ink and silver embossing powder. And added it with foam tape as well.

Scattered on a few sequins and crystal gems. I also brushed the floral with Nuvo glitter brush. So hard to capture the sparkle, but it's amazing!

Here's the blog hop line up.

Thoughts & Prayers...

Hello everyone, Cheryl here today, with another idea using products from InkOn3.
Today I'm using another great floral stamp set. I've always loved this one. It's called Posies.

I like that you can build a vase of flowers or use the floral images alone. I chose to use them alone today. I stamped out an entire background using the three flower heads and the leaves with Blackout ink.

I did a "messy" watercolor using my Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers...I love those things! I then took a soft blue and tried to get a sky looking background. However, it pulled in some of the green off the leaves. Oh well, it's soft and at least it's not stark white, lol. 

I then took a die from KatScrappiness and cut down the panel. I also pulled out a die from Simon Says Stamp that cuts that very thin gold frame. I then used the same die to cut it from gold cardstock. That same die set has this label die and also cuts a thin frame around it. I love when you remove the first thin frame and replace it with the gold one! You get this metallic bit and then the flowers continue on. Look kinda cool!

I stamped the sentiment that comes from the Roses In Bloom stamp set onto the label. I glued it to the card front and then added the thin gold frame that cuts along with it. I attached the entire panel to the front of a black A2 card base. I scattered around a few gems from Studio Katia to finish it off.

I hope you like my "messy" coloring today. For me, it takes the stress out of it and you can just have fun and get some color down. Nothing to worry about when you go outside the lines, lol.

Here's where you can get the supplies I used.

So, there you have it. Head over to InkOn3 and shop around. I know you'll find lots of goodies.
Pull out your supplies and make something pretty! Happy Crafting

InkOn3 Blog Hop

Welcome! It's an exciting week over at InkOn3. It's time for a new release!!!
And to kick it off, we're having a blog hop! Guaranteed, you will see lots of beautiful projects. 

This new release features Hollyhocks 4x6 stamp set and coordinating Hollyhock dies.

How beautiful is this hollyhock stamp and die set??? It's just gorgeous, isn't it? And the sentiments and fonts are amazing. I know I'll reach for this often, even just for those. So, let's get started!

Comment on each blog post to be entered into a drawing for two 25.00 gift certificates.
The giveaway will close June 20th at noon CST. The winners will be posted at the InkOn3 blog.

Here's what I created for today. Hope you get some inspiration.

I wanted the outside of my card to be plain Jane, you'll see why. I pulled out an old embossing folder that had a spot to stamp a sentiment. I trimmed it down and matted it with silver glitter cardstock. I stamped using Juicy embossing ink and backed it with the same silver. I foam mounted it and added a few silver gems.

Ready to see the inside? First, I get a lot of inspiration from YouTube crafters. Jennifer McGuire did a shadow box card awhile back and I loved it! So, kudos to her...I copied, lol.

This is the reason for a somewhat plain card front. I wanted it to "go with" the inside sentiment...are moments to remember. And hopefully they'll remember this inside, lol. I kinda wanted a surprise when they open it.

I stamped my image on watercolor paper and embossed with white embossing powder. I then pulled out my new Avery Elle liquid watercolors. I LOVE them! So, I painted this in several layers, building up the color saturation. I then went around the entire floral with pale blue for some sky.
I then created the card base per Jennifer's instructions. It's easy! I'll link to her post for you to see.

See the box style at the top? It folds up just fine, but it really does look like a shadow box! It's fun, and a change of pace to a regular card. Perfect for the recipient to leave on display for a bit. 

I covered the "box" front with some glitter paper from my stash. I stamped a sub-sentiment to go with the card front and mounted it with a bit of foam tape. Scattered around some silver gems and it's finished!

This stamp set is keeper for me! I love florals and this one is stunning!

Head over to the next person in line and don't forget to comment! That's a great giveaway! 
Here's the line up for the hop.
