This Trio is Better Together

Hello everyone! Welcome to the Beth Duff Designs Summer Release Hop! If you've been on my blog this week, you've seen that I had 2 cards that featured the Better Together stamp set. I am so loving this set. The food is so cute, and I really like the sentiments. Well today, I have a third card using that set.


This card makes me think of summer on the boardwalk. Coney Island definitely comes to mind. Pretty sure I've had this as a meal there before.

I colored the food and drink using my Zig Clean Color Markers. I fussy cut them out, and then used foam adhesive on the back. I gave the drink two layers of foam to pop him up even higher. My background was done pretty easily, thanks to my Tim Holtz stamp platform. You can of course use another type of platform, or even just an acrylic block to do the repeated sentiment, but it is much easier in a stamping tool. I used various colors of Color Box chalk ink. I chose colors that coordinated with the marker colors I used on the food. 

I mounted my background on to a brown card base, but I felt that the card needed a little bit of shine. So I added a stripe of Queen & Co. washi tape. This particular tape is super glitzy and was just what the card needed.

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Two Huge Valentine’s Day Hops!

I am in not one, but two Valentine’s Day hops! Not bad for someone that doesn’t even like Valentine’s Day… The first is via Smeared & Smudged . It’s time for our monthly Member Blog Hop! The second was started by Taylor Usry . Please bear with me…this post is long because I am sharing 2 projects and the hop lists are huge. Let’s stat with Smeared & Smudged, shall we? My dear friend Alex and I collaborated on the theme for this month’s S&S Member Hop. Instead of making it a free-for –all, we decided to challenge our members a little…create something Valentine’s Day / love themed, but there is a catch.  Because we are Smeared and Smudged you can not use any of the following: No hearts No red or pink Nothing ‘cute’ unless you make it uncute of course :) Ok, so it’s not dark and scary…but it’s definitely not cute either. I used my colored pencils for the focal image.  It’s from Smeared Ink’s Smitten collection. The “pretty fly” is from the teir teen Style Sa
