Fangs for the Memories




Today I am back with a fun card featuring Vampy Wishes from CC Designs.  You can also get the outline die.     




I then colored my image with Spectrum Noir Markers:

Triblends: Ice Grey Blend, Fair Skin Blend, Dark Red Blend, 
Classiques: IG2, IG5, IG7, 
Originals: IG9





Next I ran the stamp through my Gemini with the die that coordinates with the stamp set.  

I used the Halloween Die from CC Designs for my Spider Web and spider and bat.

I used pattern paper from Authentique and cardstock from my stash to create the card layers.

I placed a few glittery enamel dots from Doodlebug in the corners. 

I used Harmony Water Reactive Ink - Chinese Red to ink my sentiment strip.

I hope you enjoyed.

See you soon!

Butterfly Meadow from Crafter's Companion

I read a quote once that really resonated for me- "without change there would be no butterflies"- this is so very true.    I love butterflies so I was so excited to color this stamp up from Crafter's Companion- Butterfly Meadow.





I stamped the butterfly 2x with Finesse by Spectrum Noir- Alcohol Proof Ink in Noir Black on Neenah Solar White Classic Crest Card Pack.   

I colored with Spectrum Noir Original Coloring System markers:  BT1, BT3, BT4, BT6, IG3, IG5

I added the Crafter's companion Scalloped Filligree border die and added it in between my 2 butterflies, which I fussy cut out of the cardstock.


I also used some Black Matt Cardstock from Crafter's Companion which is my hands down favorite black cardstock.


I used some teal cardstocks from my stash, as well as a few gems from Studio Katia to add the finishing touches.

I hope you enjoyed!


See you soon!

ATC's with 7 Kids Crafts and Spectrum Noir

Today I am back with a fun project for 7 Kids Crafts and Spectrum Noir.   Every month 7 Kids Crafts does an ATC Swap.  This month is using a silhouette stamp.  I used Moon Fairy from Lavinia Stamps

I love making ATC cards and blending with Spectrum Noir Harmony Water Reactive Ink.


I cut my paper down to 2.5 x 3.5


I used 3 colors of SN Harmony Water Reactive Ink:   Lemon Tonic, Honey Pot and Chinese Red.

I started with Chinese Red




I like to use my ink blender and put a bit of ink on my Glass mat.  I just like the blend that I get.


Once I put a base of Chinese Red down I moved to Honey Pot and repeated the same steps.

Don't worry about having the perfect blend just yet as you will work back and forth with your ink.


Repeat those steps with Lemon Tonic your lightest color.


Once I had all of the colors applied, I worked backwards and blended each color out.   




Now that I have my base and am happy with it for the effects I want to get I inked up my stamp and stamped my image. 




Next I spritzed my cards with water to allow my ink to react.




Because these need to not be very bulky I can't add a lot embellishment wise so I decided to use a few gems from Pretty Pink Posh.   I put a few drops of wet glue down and used my gem tool to place my gems.






I absolutely love how these turned out and had so much fun.  





I hope that you will check out the ATC Swap over at 7 Kids and all of the great inks from Spectrum Noir.   


See you soon!

Legendary from Avery Elle and 7 Kids Crafts Store

Today I am back with a fun card featuring Legendary from Avery Elle available over at 7 Kids Crafts Store.

I used Spectrum Noir Harmony Water Reactive Ink to do my water background.

I used Oasis, Parakeet and Midnight,

I then spritzed with water to allow it to react to the water.

I used Fuscia to ink up my sentiment banner I had cut. 

I colored my image with Spectrum Noir Markers:

PL1, PL2, PL5, LV3, HB3
BT3, TN1, TN3, TN5, TN7
GB5, OR1, G02
