This & That With Pinky!

Hey again friends, it's Pinky today with 3 projects from the newest stamp set!
This & That is so much fun, I decided to make a layout, 
a card, and a tag just to mix it all up. 

My first project is a tag, I actually used a Mascil with metallic gold spray paint 
then I stamped over the paint and added embossing powder. 
I don't suggest stamping over spray paint unless you use a solvent ink, 
it tends to look faded only on the paint areas.

Here is the super fabby set!

My second project is a layout, I make many
layouts that are 6X6 or 8X8 and these stamps are so fun for layouts. 

And on my last project I kind of wanted an 80's neon look so I used black ink
BUT I used pink and blue embossing powder, it kind of makes the 
embossing powder a little darker which is what I wanted. 

I hope you enjoyed my projects this month!
Until next time friends, keep on creating.

This & That with Heather H

Hello! Heather here from Houses Built of Cards - here to share some projects with the new stamp set for August - appropriately named This & That - check out the fun little mix of images and sentiments on this set!

I started off with that cute tricycle image - colored it in black and white - I love how it almost looks like a page from a newspaper or comic book!

I also inked the stamp once, but stamped it off 3 times to add the feeling of movement. Added Crate Paper pattern paper, a bit of distress inking on the edges and a black drawn outline - and finished with a bit of jute twine!

Next up - I played with those musical notes and a bit of ink smooshing:

I stamped the musical notes 3 times, with the sentiment set in the middle on watercolor paper. Next, I laid a piece of acetate over the top, swiped 3 different colors of dye ink across, misted with water, then turned over and "smooshed" over the inked images. Easy peasy! Added some Lawn Fawn pattern paper and some washi tape to finish it off!

Finally - those flamingos! Flamingos have been a fun trend as of late, so I had to play with them a bit!

I masked off the bottom portion, and just stamped the flamingos in varying levels on some white cardstock that I had torn the edges on. Stamped the sentiment in pink, added some ink splatters, then layered over some Basic Grey pattern paper with a bit of washi tucked underneath, and a bow of jute twine to finish it off.

Thanks so much for dropping by today! Have a great day!

This & That with Jo

Jo has created 3 beautiful projects using our new stamp set "This & That".  Perfect for many occasions!  Leave this fabulous lady some love!!

I'm back, Jo here with new cards using August's Release "This & That" stamp set. 

Card 1: Showered with love

My first card uses the cloud with raining hearts and the sentiment "Showered with love". I created some cloud coverage up top with some dies and layered in the cloud image. I stamped it with a red pigment ink, opting to not use black ink, for a softer look. The sentiment is stamped on a strip of pattern paper and I added die cuts of a cloud and heart.

Card 2: Flamingo

For my second card, I used the Flamingo image in the set. Not using a sentiment this time, keeping the front simple and clean. I added some stitching detail with dies. Lastly, I wrapped bakers twine around the card.

Card 3: Just a Note

The last card used the "Just a Note" sentiment and the musical notes image. I placed some stitched circle die cuts randomly on the card and popped them up with dimensional pop dots. I stamped and fussy cut the musical notes image and placed it under the sentiment. This went perfectly well with the pattern paper that I used.

This set has many options to make different greeting cards. Thanks for stopping by! Definitely come back to see what the other Designers will create.
