ROY G BIV forevah!

Hero Arts ink colors used:

You can find a full list of project supplies HERE.

First, I ink blended Ultra Pink, Crimson and Orange Soda on Snow Layering paper, and then die cut Thanks. I then lined up the sentiments I chose, along with the die cut to ensure proper spacing. I inked up you and the top half of for with Orange Soda after covering the remaining stamps with a scrap paper. After stamping onto Snow Layering paper, I moved the scrap paper down and added a second piece so that only the bottom half of for and the top half of everything you do was exposed. I inked up in Dandelion, stamped, and repeated the process through the remaining colors. There is only one you included, so I did have to shift it down. I planned for most of my color changes to be in the middle of the sentiments for a more dramatic rainbow effect. I like to overlap the colors a smidge for a smooth transition. To finish, I added a black and white strip cut from the add-on Bold Confetti Graphic Die.

This card was created by die cutting you from the same ink blended paper in the project above. I white detail heat embossed the sentiments on black layering paper and a RV13 Copic colored Snow layering paper.

After stamping the donut from Food Puns in Intense Black ink, I Copic colored it in RV000, RV10 and RV13 for the frosting. The cake portion of the donut is E30, E31 and E35. Sprinkles are Y06, YR15, B04 and FV2.

The background was created by misting the new White Iridescent Shimmer Spray over black Midnight Mix Layering Paper. I placed a few drops of the spray onto my craft mat and pressed the paper into it for additional texture. Then I layered a black Bold Graphic Confetti die cut on top of the misted background.

After fussy cutting the donut and running the RV13 Copic over the are sentiment, I adhered them all in place and lifted are with dimensional adhesive.

A full project supply list is linked HERE.

The Ton Stamps October Release

The Ton Stamps October Release

Hello there my friends! I am back today featuring The Ton Stamps new Thankful Chrysanthemum for their Special October Release. Effie has teamed up with the amazing Eun Ji Jung, a Ton design team member, with many of the stamps created for October. I’m so excited to be participating in the hop today. You know I have undying love for florals and The Ton Stamps. I cannot wait to see where Eun Ji takes us with her amazing designs. She blows me away!

View all of the other talented design team members and special guests by following the links at the bottom of this post!

A simple card is all this gorgeous stamp needed. I stamped it on Gina K Artist’s Choice cardstock (perfect for pencils!) in The Ton’s Caviar Hybrid ink and colored it with Prismacolor pencils. I used only the pencils in the image at the top. Just 7, that’s it. I started with the darker purple hue at the base of each petal then blended through each lighter shade a smidge further into each petal. I left the tips white for highlight.

The shaker was created with In The Navy Cardstock by Gina K (her cardstock is my favorite!) and Hero Arts Acetate (which is super sturdy, yes!). Die Cut the circle, adhere acetate to the back and build walls with foam tape. Make sure to leave no gaps where clear rhinestones can escape. Adhere the back panel and card base. Heat emboss a sentiment and pop on the front along with your die cut colored image.

Blog Hop

We’re giving away one stamp of choice from our October Release to a commenter! To qualify, you must leave a comment on each blog on the hop. The comment period will close on Sunday, October 29 at 7pm EST. The winner will be announced on The Ton blog thereafter.

Thank you so much for hopping along today. Carry on!

My Fabulous Friend – Ton October Challenge

My Fabulous Friend – Ton October Challenge

Good day to you and welcome to another edition of Creative Bliss! It’s the 1st of the month and that means a new challenge over at The Ton Stamps! This is my last regular post as a design team member with The Ton, but I will still join them for special occasions and hops. In fact, there is something extra coming later this month that you can begin to preorder next week. Keep an eye out for the news!

This month we are taking our nods from a caffeine inspired October mood board. It worked for me as this is one of my favorite cards. I love to combine different stamps sets, die cut them and weave them around each other to create an arrangement. Only on paper though, this is not a talent I have with real flowers. I’m all about the 2D, no 3D for me, thanks – lol!

  • Stamp mini cluster floral images from The Ton Stamps onto Gina K Artist’s Choice #110 cardstock (perfect for pencils!).
  • Color the images. I used Prismacolor Premier colored pencils.
  • Die cut the images.
  • Copper heat emboss The Ton’s Minor Stripes and Hug in a Mug.
  • Pencil color the mug and die cut.
  • Die cut Concord & 9th’s Heartstring die into heavy white cardstock.
  • Adhere striped background to A2 folded card base.
  • Layer heart panel leaving area near heart free of adhesive.
  • Tuck in floral images under and over each other and edges, adhere.
  • Add Basic Banner and mug.
  • Add any remaining floral clusters to matching envelope. Adhere them well so they make it through the postal system or hand deliver.

You can find this card, and many others by the amazing design team over at The Ton Stamps Challenge Blog. Head on over to enter your own! Up for grabs is a $50 gift certificate to The Ton Stamps retail shop.

Come play along and see what all the fuss is about! And even if you choose not to enter, it is a great place to check out inspiration created with The Ton products by the design team and by all the entrants. View contestant entries or enter your own by clicking the blue froggy InLinkz button near the bottom of the post. You can also search Instagram and Facebook using #thetonchallenge!

Thanks to you for popping in and taking the time to read about my latest Creative Bliss!

Glittery Christmas Rose Bouquet

Glittery Christmas Rose Bouquet

It’s Friday, it’s Fri-Yay! I’m so happy to be sharing WPlus9‘s newest release as a part of their release week. There are several new sets from floral to the new Crew. Today I am featuring, Christmas Rose Bouquet. You guys, it just blew me away! The full swag is beautiful and I love that it was drawn with simple details. These types of designs, with open petals and leaves, are among my favorite because they lend so well to marker, pencil and watercolor. All of my faves!

I even created a video tutorial for you! Score one for me! It is loaded with tips, as well. If you have a few, I’d love for you to give it a view, like and subscribe!

You can find my post on the WPlus9 blog here.

To create depth and dimension I applied the Zig color first in Wine Red and then in the darker shaded areas, Deep Red. The orange-ish touch was added to the secondary flowers in Scarlet Red. The leaves were colored with Mid Green and Olive Green. Each color was applied in the area I wanted to appear most recessed, and then blended out with the Nuvo Glitter Gloss marker. The sparkle is phenomenal! You can see this pretty lady shine from across the room… reminiscent of Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, lol!

Die cut the Christmas Rose Bouquet and pop with dimensional adhesive above black and white polka dot and striped paper for an eye-catching creation. Final touches on this A2 card were added with a sentiment from The Crew: Garden Club new release stamp set and topped off with Ivory Seashell Nuvo Crystal Drops.

The video tutorial is loaded with more detailed instructions and is chock full of tips for accurate and smart crafting! Don’t forget to like and subscribe for more from me on YouTube!

Head on over to the WPlus9 blog to take a peek at more from the design team and guest designers. Find the WPlus9 YouTube channel here and their shop here.

Thanks so much for visiting today. So much gratitude to Dawn, Jana and WPlus9 for allowing me to be a part of release week! I hope you all have a long and luscious weekend! If you get crafty with tip, tricks or something you’ve seen here, I’d love for you to tag me on Instagram!
