Mixing It Up - Ins & Outs
Welcome back!  Today I'm sharing with you a card I made using the new Rub A Dub Doggies stamp set along with some fabulous stencils from the shop!  The new Ins & Outs Masking Stencils are SO fun and versatile!  You are gonna love them!
One of the things I love about these sets is the extra embossed lines that help you line the stencil up with the panel you are blending onto.  Mine was already die cut and I lined it up with the inside rectangle.
I started with the Marquis Ins & Outs Stencil and used some Pixie Spray on the back of the stencil to keep it in place.  Then I blended some clouds within the frame opening using the Scene Builder: Clouds stencil.
Then I used the Scene Builder Stencil clouds to create some green hills.
And the center piece from the Ins & Outs: Victorian to create a little less hilly hill in front.
Finally, I lined up the outside frame again, but this time I lined up my ink blended scene area to line it up just in case I was a little off the first time.  More important to have the outline lined up with the inside frame.  I blended some of the blue I used for the cloudy sky and then added some Glitz Glitter Gel.
So fun!  And you know how I love frames.. no foam tape needed for this one!
All that was left to do was stamp, cut and color my images and add them to the scene.  Almost sad to cover up that background... but.... these pups are so cute who cares!?!
And I always love to add a few images with my sentiment and the bubbles are perfect for that!
And in case you wanted these...
That's me for today!  I hope you enjoyed it and you'll come again soon for more Miss Ink Stamps Inspiration!

Mixing It Up - Easy Way to Use Background Stamps
Welcome back!  I've got a cool and easy way to use background stamps and with the awesome collection of them at Miss Ink I'm having lots of fun!
I started with a white panel of cardstock and swiped it with anti static powder.  I stamped that beautiful Holly Jolly image onto it with Versamark and heat embossed it in purple.
Then I blended some Distress Oxides in Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans and Wilted Violet.  Then to lighten up the snowy areas, I used a paintbrush to brush on some water in those areas and blotted it off with a paper towel to lighten it up.
I splattered water all over the panel and blotted it off.  I also splattered on some white glittered paint.  Finally I added Nuvo glitter gel on the posts where the snow is and then along the ground.  Finally I dotted some all over but just dabbing the tip randomly to add some sparkle.
While I waited for everything to dry, I stamped, cut and colored the images from Little Angel and Springtime Banners and arranged them onto the base.  Then I stamped the sentiment from Thankful and fussy cut the Thankful word and cut the remainder into a strip.  Then I adhered the sentiment strip onto the card and popped the sentiment onto the top.  I love the way the image really drops into the snowy night.
That's me for today!  I'm loving playing with these backgrounds like this and hope you'll give it a try!  Thanks so much for stopping and hope you'll come again soon for more Miss Ink Stamps inspiration!
