Congrats by Jen Timko | Dotty Angles Stamp Set by Stampin' Up, Clearsnap Petal Point InkI get to share some projects I have been holding on to that are part of a product review for Splitcoaststampers.  Many of you know my long standing love of “Splitcoast” because it is always full of creative inspiration, techniques, tutorials and reviews.  I was asked to take a look at some Clearsnap Petal Point Pigment Inks that are being released in two new color groupings (Sunset and Boardwalk).  Please hop right over to see my thoughts and the analyses of some amazing stampers (and their projects!) – Product Review.  If you want to see the whole gallery of work with these inks, CLICK HERE.

In my review, I mention how I was playing with the ink and trying new things.  I reference a card on kraft (Crumb Cake) card stock and an ombré card.  I wanted to share those here too since I had not put them on my blog yet.  I love the pretty Sunset color family for my Congrats card, don’t you?!  The strong colors from the pigment ink are fabulous on this background stamp!Just for You by Jen Timko | Beautiful Day Stamp by Altenew, Clearsnap Petal Point InkIn my flower card I was able to use the Boardwalk ink to get a gorgeous look on my Crumb Cake paper.  I love how the Dune color is a match and yet shows up beautifully with the line image flower.  While you are over at  Splitcoast, take some time to look around and appreciate all the resources.  You’ll be glad you did!  Thanks for stopping in today.  See you soon!

FMS288 by Jen Timko | Beautiful Day Stamp by Altenew, sentiment from Paper Pumpkin by Stampin' Up, Zig Clean Color Markers, WatercolorI hope you are having a great week!  I’m so happy to share the latest sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  Our sketch hostess this week is one seriously amazing stamper!  Jen Mitchell has created a gorgeous sketch for us and I’m totally in love with it!

I tried to use a different color palette than I have been playing with lately and started first with this go-to flower from Altenew’s Beautiful Day stamp set.  I stamped using Versafine ink and then colored using Zig Clean Color Markers.  Just two colors was all it took to get pretty variation on the petals.  I fussy cut it out and then added it to this ivory base to match the sketch.  I used the Softly Falling embossing folder to give dimension to the top panel and added a Paper Pumpkin sentiment on the bottom later.  I then added a Basic Pearl (colored with a Sharpie) and some Black Metallic Thread to the flower.

This sketch has infinite potential and I think I may use it again soon!  Love, love it!  I hope you will too.  So glad you stopped in for today’s card.  I’ll be back tomorrow with a look at a new product and I can’t wait to share.  Until then, have a great day!!

Supplies:

Stamps:  Beautiful Day (Altenew), Paper Pumpkin sentiment(SU) ; Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Zig Clean Color Markers; Paper:  Naturals Ivory (SU retired); Black Metallic Thread, Basic Pearls, Big Shot, Softly Falling Embossing Folder, Dimensionals

Fancy Friday – Think Pink

Fancy Friday – Think Pink published on 4 Comments on Fancy Friday – Think Pink

Welcome to this month’s Fancy Friday Blog Hop!  Our team is a group of stampers who love to make beautiful things.  Sometimes they are clean, sometimes they are layered but the one thing I can say for sure is that our projects will be fancy!  If you hopped over from the amazing Susan Wong, welcome to the next stop.  For February, we have an inspiration challenge….Think Pink!

Think Pink by Jen Timko | Strength & Prayers Stamp Set by Stampin' Up, Watercolor, Pop of Pink DSPI have loved this beautiful bird image from Strength & Prayers since I got it and I wanted to use it for a non-sympathy card.  I thought playing with it in pink would be fun.  I stamped the image onto watercolor paper and also stamped the splatters from Gorgeous Grunge.  Then I started a loose watercolor with Pink Pirouette followed by additional coloring with Melon Mambo.  I just pulled the color right from the lid of my ink pads using an Aqua Painter.  Super easy to do, especially when you get to go out of the lines like I did here.  After the color dried back a bit, I went back in and layered in some more Melon Mambo to add more depth.  The sentiment is from a Paper Pumpkin set and I thought the font was a nice match to the art on the image.  I added a small border on the colored panel with Basic Black card stock and put it on a Pop of Pink DSP base.  Lots of pink here but you could use any color singly or a combination for a different look.

I hope you enjoy this fun look!  There are some serious “pink girls” in our hop and I just know they will have had a great time creating with this theme.

Now for the rest of the hop!  I’m telling you….this team is the most talented group.  You will be happy you hopped!  Next up is my amazing friend Connie Collins.  Her work is always extraordinary and you are sure to love what she created!
