I made my own Fall Ink Pad, you can too!

Hey Guys!

Today I am going to show you how I made my own Fall ink pad so that leaves on my tree look natural, when I am done you’ll be able to also!! Of course, I made a video you can go here if you would like to SEE how I made it! Naturally, I tend to look at pictures and if I have questions a video helps me out a lot. As an example, here is a picture of my card:

See how the leaves are THREE different colors! That’s my own Fall ink pad!
My own Fall ink pad was used for the inside too!

So, how did I make my fall ink pad? To begin with I had a dirty, yucky Versamark pad that I never used and thought of chucking it in the trash……but no, I could make my own Fall ink pad so my tree will look gorgeous AND match the colors I was using for this card!

My own Fall ink pad made from an OLD Versamark pad!

Since I wanted the colors to match my card I used Bumble Bee, Cherry Cobbler and for the green I went with Just Jade. Already I knew that I wanted to use the Holiday Rhinestones and those used Cherry Cobbler for the red, and a yellow that looked a lot like Bumble Bee but the green was Shaded Spruce so I went with a lighter shade of color and used Just Jade instead. It’s funny how I go about figuring out which colors I use in my crafting, this time it was all about the Rhinestones……gotta have that BLING!

Just Breathe

Hey Guys!

Today I’m sharing with you a card that was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest (it was a rival stamp company), I thought that Stampin’ Up! Stamps would be GORgeous! I used Layered with Kindness, it is a DISTinkTive set! Do you know what that means? SU! has a patent pending for a VERY beautiful way to make stamps look realistic! LOVE them!

These leaves are stunning!

Every time I stamp with a DISTinkTive stamp set I am in awe. You’ll have to tell me if you have used them, what you think. If you want to check them out, go ahead and place an order… look for this sign:



Would you like to see the inside of the card? I used the Label Me Lovely punch. It turned out so pretty!

As usual, I give you all the particulars for this card. All supplies will be in picture form below, click on any of them and you will be taken to my OnLine Store. For purchases $35 and over you will receive from me Tutorials with pictures of over 50 projects!

This card was pretty easy, a little bit of fussy cutting but you only cut out three flowers, that’s doable! Of course if you know me, you know I love bling…..I added a rhinestone to each flower and two at the top to add a little bit of bling on it’s own. I think if balances it out!

Sneak Peek: Parisian Beauty Bundle

Hey Guys!

It’s been a while, but I figured for my New Year’s Resolution I would TRY to post more! Here on my Blog, Pinterest and Instagram. Look at me! Here it is a DAY early! LOL Today I thought I would start by posting one of my FAVORITE stamp sets that Stampin’ Up! has brought to us in the NEW Occasions Catalog! The name of this set is Parisian Beauty which you probably already know since that is what I named this post.

And, don’t you love cards that you can interact with? This one, once it’s open can stay open and let the person you give it to enjoy it more. I used the Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP for the front AND the inside. This Specialty paper has places that are embossed with Champagne, which makes this sooooo pretty to look at! When you add the Dies to the paper, you can’t make a mistake! If you look close, you can see that I used Champagne Rhinestones on the Tower, Champagne Foil behind the main images and it’s what I used for the Amour! I popped up the Amour so it would hold up the front of the card. Well, do you like it? Anything I should add or take away?

Here are the specifics to this card:

Stamps:
Parisian Beauty #151466 OR the Bundle #153778

Inks:
Cherry Cobbler

Cardstock:
Cherry Cobbler 4 1/4″ x 11 (scored @ 5 1/2″ & 8 1/4″, 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ (for back of front piece), 5 1/4″ x 4″ (under the front DSP), 3 5/8″ x 4 7/8″ ( for under inside DSP), scrap for piece cut out of Stitched Rectangle Die (3rd from smallest of longer rectangles), and scrap for Eiffel Tower.
Champagne Foil 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ for front piece, 5 1/4″ x 4″ for inside, scrap for Amour and Swirl cut out.
Parisian Blossom DSP 5 1/8″ x 3 /8″ (for front), 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ (for inside
Whisper White small scrap for front sentiment

Misc:
Champagne Rhinestones #151193
Dimensionals #104430
Holiday Rhinestones #150457

I would like to do a video for this card but what do you think? Too easy and doesn’t need one or you’d like to see it from start to finish!? I KNOW that there will be plenty more cards to come from this set, PLUS my hubby is taking me to Europe for my 60th birthday! That’s in a year and a half! This set will come in handy for scrapbooking my adventure!

Hope you enjoyed this post, please check out my youtube channel and subscribe so I will know if you want to see more from me!

Hope you had a Great Christmas and here’s to a Happy New Year!
