TTIC #36 Special Collaboration with Artful Inkables

IMG_5107 IMG_5109

I am so excited about this!!! This week’s Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge is super-duper special!!! We are collaborating with a wonderful stamp company called Artful INKables. They have come out with 2 amazing Twilight Inspired stamp sets and 1 cool set of charms. And we are helping them celebrate the release!

Artful INKables was founded by Kristin Soboloski to express her love of rubber stamps, art, and all things crafty. After crafting for many years, Kristin began to design her own rubber stamps and her company was born.

I have made 4 cards so far… and will be making more! Here’s the scoop on one of them… I used a total of 5 of the Artful INKables stamps! The harlequin was calling my name, and I liked the chess piece since “Breaking Dawn” is my fave book of the 4. I just started to play… which is easy to do with these stamps! The only materials I used were the stamps, EK Success watercolor markers (my faves!) and a little Amazing Glaze by JudiKins. Oh, and some pop dots! One of the things I think about (and most of you probably do too!) is that Bella and Edward have found their “forever” in each other. The two were living it different worlds that collided and created a romance that is like no other. That’s kinda what I tried to capture here. Make sure you click on the photos to blow ‘em up and get a better looksie!

I really had a blast working with these stamps. They are so well made! Deeply cut, so your imprints are always perfect, and the images are so great! I had so many ideas as soon as I saw them, I couldn’t wait to get started! Each day this week, Twilight Tuesday will be posting up more projects from this awesome collaboration (of course mine will also be posted here!). So please make sure you check back daily!!!

Don’t feel bad that you don’t have these stamps yourself yet… you can still participate in this week’s challenge, created by my new friend Julie!

The theme for this week’s challenge (TTIC36) is What Says Twilight To You?

So many things say “Twilight” to the multitudes of Twilight fans. What images do you think of when you think about the Twilight books and movies?

For some, Twilight means an apple, for some, the chess piece on the cover of Breaking Dawn, and for others, Bella’s truck conjures up the Twilight mood. Many fans love to express their Twilight love by choosing a “team” to root for, and others have favorite quotes from the book that are near and dear to them.

For the craft portion of the challenge: create a piece that expresses what comes to mind when YOU think of the Twilight saga.

For the comment portion of the challenge: Many people often say that reading the Twilight saga has been life-changing. Please share how the saga has changed your own life or made you view life in a different way.

Plus, there will be awesome blog candy TTIC will be giing away for the next 4 weeks!

And of course, this week the rest of the Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge Design Team has used Artful INKables’ new stamp sets for their projects. Check out today’s projects:

Beth ~ Dani ~ Eve ~ Jen ~ Julie ~ Margie ~ Rebecca ~Tonya

And Our Guest Designers:

Alison ~ Donna ~ Jacquie

I’ll tackle my comment portion for this challenge later in the week! Please make sure you go to www.twilighttuesday.com to check out all of the other wonderful projects today, and throughout the week!

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
