Outer Space Card

On May the Fourth, Craftin Desert Divas had a one-day sale that I couldn't resist! It arrived this week!

They have this simply adorable set called Troll Wars & a super fun Outer Space Stencil!

Yesterday, I decided to try my hand at playing with the stencil. I had an idea of what I wanted to do. For Mother's Day, my hubs & daughter got me some of the Distress Oxide inks by Tim Holtz. I am in love with these inks!! So, I gave my idea a shot & it exceeded my expectations!!


I chose a nice piece of black smooth Bazzill cardstock from my scrap stash. I placed the stencil so that I could get as much of the three planets on the scrap. I used Stampin 'Up White Craft Ink for the stars & far off planets. I then used the Distress Oxides Seedless Preserves, Salty Ocean, & Peacock Feathers for the planets & shooting star.

I think it turned out AWESOME!! I'm excited to get this made into a card using Troll Wars! Please head over to my Facebook Group Artful Angel & vote on which Troll Wars character you want to see on this card. While you're there, feel free to join my group AND invite your friends, too! Voting will most likely close tonight as I'd like to make the card tomorrow!! I will post the resulting card here, when it's completed.

Kraftin' Kimmie New Product Launch!!

I am blessed to be apart of Kraftin' Kimmie's new product launch--Krafty Kolours!! I have to say, this is some pretty AWESOME ink! I love that not only is it permanent but it's also perfectly "juicy"! Because of the "juiciness", you get a wonderful fully inked image every time! And, even though it's permanent ink, it's still able to be used to get a watercolor effect!

I hope you enjoy these cards!





To use Krafty Kolours as watercolors, I recommend stamping the ink pad several times on something plastic like an acrylic block. Then, use a paintbrush or watercolor brush to pick up the color & apply it to your project.




On the top card, I used the new stamp set Magical Friends & colored it with my PrismaColor pencils. This is my first time ever creating my own background. I'm pretty pleased with how it came out! On the bottom card, I used the new stamp set Beautiful Blooms. I stamped with Stampin' Up Craft Ink in Elegant Eggplant & embossed with clear Ultra Thick Embossing powder. I then used my watercolor brush pen to pick up the Krafty Kolours ink from my acrylic block to apply it over my embossed image on the card.



We've got some super exciting NEWS to share with you today!
You may have heard that we've been working on something top secret for the last few months and it's FINALLY time that we can share it with everyone!!!

Today we are introducing you to.....

glossy surfaces and fabric

I went in a little different direction than is typical for birthday cards. I went with a black & white theme & used a splash of red & orange for the candles, balloons, & cake! I thought it would be fun to go a little "outside the box" on this one.
