Oh My Whiskers by Honey Bee Stamps

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! I’m back today with a card from Honey Bee Stamps, but this post will be short and sweet since I’ve got a busy day ahead of me. I promised that I would take my parents shopping and out to lunch this afternoon. Getting them in and out of the car, up and down curbs, in and out of stores, and generally keeping track of them is somewhat akin to herding cats so I have my work cut out for me!

As my wallet can attest, I’ve developed an addiction to Honey Bee Stamps. So when I saw the Oh My Whiskers stamp set in the new releases, I knew that I had to have it. When you have a household of cats, you can never have to many cat themed stamps. Or at least, that’s what I tell myself.

Rowhouse Greetings | Oh My Whiskers by Honey Bee Stamps

I colored the image with Copic markers on Spectrum Noir cardstock. Although I prefer X-PressIt Blending Card for Copic coloring, I don’t really like the gray undertone in the paper so I selected a whiter cardstock. When I was coloring, I debated making the balloons translucent, but decided that I wanted the pop of color from making them more opaque. I added a few enamel dots in coordinating colors and called it a day.

Hope you got some inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you again soon!

Better With You by Gina K Designs

GOOD AFTERNOON FRIENDS! I’m back today with a simple card that I put together for the April 2019 Monthly Mix Challenge over at Gina K Designs. Designing this card was a bit of a challenge for me because I don’t have many stamp sets from Gina K Designs. Luckily, the theme this month is ombre ink blending. I have plenty of ink pads so I just played to the strengths of my existing stash.

Rowhouse Greetings | Better With You by Gina K. Designs

For my project, I started by ink blending the edges of my card base with dye inks in Sea Glass and Blue Lagoon. Next, I die cut a piece of Neenah 80# cardstock and stenciled the background using the Square Mandala Stencil and the same dye inks. Once the ink was dry, I stamped the image using Versafine ink and then quickly heat set it with embossing powder. I added a few crystal jewels for some bling!

Hope you got some inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you again soon!
