Sending Huge Rainbow Hugs!
I am back with another quick card! I love stamps that can be used by themselves without any additional products... sometimes I just love to color and not ink blend, die cut etc. Making this card was definitely relaxing!

Frosty Box card

Frosty Box card

Hi there, Christine here with a box card using the Snow Buddies stamp and Art Deco stencil.  I used the stencil to create a glittery background that I then die cut to make the box card more interesting.

I first created a background piece with the Art Deco stencil, by ink blending distress oxide inks in faded jeans, shaded lilac and speckled egg splotched onto a gel press with the stencil on it.  I then removed the stencil and placed a piece of cardstock onto the gel press.  I let the paper dry and then put the stencil back on and put glitter paste over all the colored areas. A video will be coming out soon that shows how I did this.  I then used the dies from the box card die set to created little decorative panels for the card.

 I die cut the main box pieces from Neenah solar white 110lb cardstock and put them together.  I added the decorative panels that I had made with the Art Deco stencil, as well as a sentiment from the Snow Buddies stamp.

I then colored some images from the Snow Buddies stamp set with some copic markers, Bunny (W3, W0, B66, B63) Snow Bunny (WO, E37, G24, G28) and Hedgehog (E37, E34, E31, B66, B63) and adhered them as shown above.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

With sympathy
Hello and welcome back! I hope your day has started well. I do not know how the weather is where you are. But outside my window it's a blizzard and minus 10 degrees, and I love it! My card for today, however, is as far away from snow and minus degrees as you can get. I have tried to create a spring card using stamps from Magnolia Sympathy and Alice background.

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!
