Blends Storage Box

How about a cute and portable Blends holder with plenty of space for the new colors and the returning ones? Last night on our Facebook Live, I showed how to make one with just a few supplies.  And, because it has to be pretty as well as functional, we decorated it with some of the beautiful Garden Impressions DSP.  I know you’re going to love it!

Birthday “Fishes” – For the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Time once again to participate in the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop and this month it’s all about birthdays!  So be sure to hop through the list at the bottom to see lots of great birthday cards.

blog header

I just opened up my box of goodies from the new 2018 catalog and one stamp set in particular just “jumped” out at me – All The Good Things.  Koi are my favorite fish so I knew I would be making a card right away with this stamp set.

June birthday blog card w

This one went together very quickly as the Koi image and the sentiment I chose are both quite large so not much other stamping needed to be done.  I started with a card base of Rich Razzleberry (standard A2 size of 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored and folded at 5-1/2″) and topped that with a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of the gorgeous Nature’s Poem DSP.  Next I cut another piece of the Rich Razzleberry card stock – this time measuring 3-3/8″ x 3-7/8″ and set it aside.

Then it was time to work on the design panel.  This piece of Whisper White cardstock measures 3-1/4″ x 3-3/4″.  I laid this into my Stamparatus as the Koi stamp is quite large and I knew I would be stamping it in two different inks.  I then took the Koi stamp from the All The Good Things stamp set and positioned it on the paper and closed the plate to pick up the stamp.  Now for the fun part!  The Koi stamp has an attached sentiment which is lovely but not what I wanted for this card so I masked the sentiment with tape before doing any inking.  Once that was done I chose two colors of ink, Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry.  Now you don’t need to use two inks but I wanted to see if I could give it a little extra color so it would more closely resemble the Koi I have seen.  I first inked up the stamp with Cajun Craze ink, removed the tape and stamped it on the design panel.  The coverage you get with this stamp is awesome so I didn’t need to go back over it.  Next, I wiped off the stamp,  inked it up this time with the Crushed Curry ink (remembering to mask the sentiment with tape) and stamped it.  This is where the Stamparatus really comes in handy as you know it is going to stamp in exactly the same spot as before.  And you can see some of the Crushed Curry ink on the image giving it more of that two-tone look.

Now that I had my image stamped, it was time for a sentiment.  The one I chose is from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set.  A wonderful Koi fish needed a wonderful sentiment, right?  I inked it up using Rich Razzleberry ink and stamped it to the left of the Koi.  Perfect!!!  I then grabbed the mat I had cut previously and attached it to the back of the design panel with Multipurpose Liquid Glue, skewing it off kilter for added interest.  This was then attached to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  For a few additional design elements, I cut up one of the Pearlized Doilies and affixed with the Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the bottom left of the design panel and then to the upper right behind the Rich Razzleberry mat.  A few rhinestones and the card was finished!

So be sure to grab the All Things Good stamp set – it really is a lovely one.  Now on to the rest of the hop.  Just click on the Next or Previous buttons below or on any of the links in the below list.  Happy hopping!
