Smeared Ink New Release Blog Hop

I am so excited to share my latest card with you! It’s from one of three fabulous new rubber stamp sets from Smeared Ink. Would you like a peek at all three sets? Of course you would!

TheSymbologyofAngelswatermark

This first set is The Symbology of Angels. Isn’t it fabulous???

The second set is called Teen Style Backgrounds. Check out the kicks! Gotta love that stamp!

And this third set is Teen Style Sayings. Some of these phrases are so cool! I love “Epic Fail” and “Rad” the best! Please click on any of the images to see them bigger.

So the Design Team was given the fabulous “Praise Angel” to use. I love this image. I can see myself using him quite often, in a lot of different ways. This first time, I went pretty spiritual…

Praise-Angel-1

This was one of those cards that I had a vision for…and was actually able to execute it perfectly. I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to find the right cream colored paper, but the Black and Creme collection from DCWV was just what I needed!

Praise-Angel-2

This fabulous angel was colored in with colored pencils (his body), metallic acrylic paint (his wings), and Twinkle H20’s (his…uh…garment ;} ). I wanted the paper to look like rays coming out of him…beams of light. I really wanted the monochromatic thing here too… I thought it would make the image softer, and more, well, spiritual, as opposed to being wicked (which I am totally gonna do one day!).

Praise-Angel-3

Here you can see the luster on the wings and his bit ‘o fabric. The champagne colored paint I used for his wings is the perfect shade for an angel! I had stamped him on white cardstock, then distressed the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink. It worked out to be the exact shade of the DCWV cardstock. I also pop dotted him, to give him some more oomph.

So, how would YOU color him? What kind of look would he be sporting if you stamped out the Praise Angel? Would you like to see more before you decide? Then hop on to the rest of the Smeared & Smudged Design Team. I know there is going to be a ton of amazing inspiration! Then, make sure you pick up at least one of these rockin’ new stamp sets for yourself! Click HERE to go right to the Smeared Ink shop! Have an inspiring day!

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…
