all you have to do is fly

Hi everyone! Ashley here today! I made a card using the With Wings cling stamp set.
I made the background using Ken Oliver color bursts in red and orange. First I spritzed some water onto white cardstock. Then I just puffed the Color Bursts onto the card. They're powder so they literally will puff out and then mix with the water.

I stamped my sentiment using the With Wings red rubber cling stamp set. I knew I wanted to heat emboss the word 'fly' because it is in a different font and stands out. To do this, I mask off the part of the stamp I don't want to ink with some washi tape. Then I ink the stamp, remove the washi tape, and stamp the image.
I love this sentiment. Here's a final look at my card:
I have one more thing to share. Almost two years ago as a guest designer for PWP, I made this layout using this same stamp set AND the same masking technique.

Fun, right?

Sugar Skulls and Coffee

Hello friends. Today I put my two of my favorite things together to make a bright and cheerful Birthday card. Sugar Skulls and Coffee. Who doesn't love sugar skulls. If you are a fan like I am then you must have these stamp sets from Paper Wings Productions.
Today I am using
Calaveras & Corazons Clear Stamp set  and Playing with your Coffee Clear Stamp set.

I stamped the largest coffee cup twice onto a piece of white cardstock. Then I stamped the sugar skull in the middle of each cup. I colored both with Copic markers and then cut each one out with a pair of detail scissors. I took a piece of watercolor paper and trimmed it to 4 X 5 1/4. I painted a wash of color using Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors.

I adhered the coffee cups on to the watercolored piece using a liquid adhesive. To finish off the card front I matted the watercolor piece of cardstock on a piece of bright yellow cardstock then onto a white card base.

choose to be happy

Hi everyone! It's Ashley here today sharing a card I made using my stamps in a different way.

I cut out a piece of cardstock slightly larger than my die. Then I used Text Melange and Crowns stamp sets to heat emboss text and crown images randomly all over the cardstock. I knew I was going to die cut my hearts from this cardstock so the actual images wouldn't be visible. I just wanted to add some color and dimension to the final die cut piece.

After I felt like I had added enough heat embossed images, I ran the cardstock and die through my Grand Calibur. Here's a close up of what the die looks like. I used a fine detail gold embossing powder for the text stamps and a white embossing powder and a glitter embossing powder for the crowns.
I attached my die cut to the front of my card. I used a sentiment from Brave Girls red rubber stamp set and heat embossed it with fine detail white embossing powder.

You can see more details about my card on my blog, Markland and Main. Thanks for looking!

Texas Texas Texas

Hello friends.  Today I made this fun Texas theme card for you using two sets of stamps. 
Texas Clear Stamp and Texas Quotes.

  1. First I stamped the Bluebonnet stamp in Light Blue all over the white cardstock. 
  2. Then I stamped the Texas map in Red and Blue ink.  
  3. I stamped the the Texas Quotes on a piece of Vellum using VersaMark ink and embossed with a Gold powder. 
  4. I added a few Blue and Red pearls on top of the Vellum. 

I matted the card front on a piece of Red cardstock and then adhered it all to the white card base. 
Hope you enjoyed my post today.
Have a wonderful day friends.

Warm Winter Wishes

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today and I'm happy to be working with these lovely stamps  from Paper Wings Productions.

The card was created from white cardstock and a layer of snowy paper and navy cardstock was added on top.  Since we recently were pounded with 30" of snow, this card was quite appropriate!

The mittens are from the Winter Wood Cuts Cling stamp set.  I stamped, fussy cut, and colored the mittens with Smooch Accent Inks.  The words are part of the Say it-Winter Greetings Clear Stamp set.  They were individually stamped and then cut into pennant shapes to fit across the card.  Black cardstock under the pennants really helped them stand out.

The mittens were added to the card with foam adhesives for dimension. 
Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy Birthday

Hello friends. Today I have a Birthday card for you. I made this clean and simple Birthday card using Paper Wings Productions Half Flower Cling Stamp  and used the sentiment from Let's Eat Cake. I stamped the flower using a peach color and a green for the leaf. 
To keep the card clean and simple I just finished it off with a few peach colored sequins and wrapped some twine into a bow.
I matted the card front onto a piece of peach cardstock and then onto a white base. 

You could stamp this flower in any color of ink and it would make a beautiful card for a friend or loved one. 

I hope you enjoyed my post today. Have a wonderful day friends.
