Who wants a prize???

OF COURSE YOU WOULD!!! All you have to do is leave comments along your way today as you hop.  We'll pick one winner from a DT Member's blog. 

Let's just say, as a boy mom, I have always loved monsters. The cute, fun ones, not anything scary. So when we got our sample sets for this release I was so giddy! The set is called Monsters Ink and it's perfect for Halloween and just about any other occasion. If you follow me on Instagram (@lisahenke) then you saw my sneak peek earlier this week of the monster party I colored up. I used a few of those ghoulish cuties on my two cards today. 


For this first card, I did some ink blending with Distress Oxide inks and used a circle stencil to create the moon. I stamped some bats in the background from Boo Balloons and added the Boo! Word die (previous released) in black card stock. I made the scene a little more spooky with one of the Spooky Tree dies and then added in my copic colored Monsters Ink. I used the matching Monsters Ink dies to cut them out and then added them to the card base with some foam dimensionals. Here's a closer look. 


The next card is actually the first one I created with the Monsters Ink set. I had this paper that made me think of the movie Monsters Inc and so  I used it in the background and colored up the furry beast to look a little like Sully (minus an eye)  from the movie. 


I couldn't resist the punny sentiment, so I repeatedly stamped the eye image in the Monsters Ink stamp set and hit it with some white embossing powder onto a Midnight Stitched Circle. I love how this turned out. 


I have a few more ideas with this set, so I think you'll be seeing more cards in the near future.

I was in die cut heaven with this card. It is no secret around here, I. Love. Die cuts. They make for easy card making and add so much interest to any project. There are some fabulous dies that just Released! I am gah gah over the Harvest Moon die. I love the stitching details, and there are sweet little jack 'o lantern faces you can use to customize your pumpkin patch. love that! I cut it from Sand card stock and then used my copics to add some orange color and highlights. I forgot how I love the look of copics on kraft card stock. 


In the background I used some Distress Oxide inks to create my spooky night sky. I added some "grass" detail along the bottom with the Mini Stitched Chevron Border. Two other new dies I added are the Stitched Bats and one of the Spooky Trees


I stamped the sentiment from Boo Balloons set in Midnight ink along the top. So many fun details.

Lil' Inker Designs September Release


Woooohoo! I am so glad you are here! It's time for the September Lil' Inker Designs release! We have some pretty mixed in with fun and spooky. Lots of great dies to make your paper crafting projects speedy! I can't wait to share it all with you.

Who wants a prize???

OF COURSE YOU WOULD!!! All you have to do is leave comments along your way today as you hop.  We'll pick one winner from a DT Member's blog. 

So my first card is serving double duty.....it's made with the new Fall Foliage stamp set and I am using this week's Color Throwdown Colors. You can check out the challenge over on the CTD Blog


I stamped the floral and leaf images with copic friendly ink and colored them up with my Copics markers. I used the Fall Foliage dies to cut them out. I thought the Perfect Palette die would be a great way to show off the pretty flowers. I love how they peek thru the cut out circle window. I stamped the sentiment from Fall Foliage onto black card stock and hit it with some white embossing power. 


I have one more card today. I just love the sunflower image from Fall Foliage. I stamped them onto some water color distress card stock and water colored them with some liquid water colors. Once they dried, I used the Fall Foliage dies to cut them out. 


I used another sheet of the Ranger distress water color card stock and cut out a Silly Stitched rectangle. I them sponged on some distress ink in Broken China and added some grass to the bottom with Crushed Olive. I kept the sentiment (from Fall Foliage) simple and stamped it in Midnight ink along the bottom and added the trio of sunflowers with foam dimensionals. It sure makes me happy. 


Here is the blog list for today!

Picket Fence Studios-Holiday Release

Oh my goodness! I am pretty excited about today's post. It's our first official release with Picket Fence Studios. We have a whole lot of holiday fun lined up for you today. The team has been busy creating. Thanks for joining me. All the release details are over on the Picket Fence Studios blog, so be sure to start over there.

So let's get to it! I'll start with a jolly ol' Ho Ho HO! It's glittery and awesome and I combined a few of the new stamp sets. Oh, and I pulled out some Heat 'n Stick powder to glitterfy (that's a word, right??) my card front. The new All That Glitters stamp is so so cool! It's stamps a fun textured outline with an open space to add whatever your heart desires. Today I stamped All That Glitters with versamark, added some Heat 'n Stick powder and then topped it with some Tim Holtz distress glitter. I love how it looks a little like snow! 




I then used the Santa Mischief stamp set to add the sentiment and the jolly ol' Santa. I colored up Santa with my copics and finished the card off with some sequins and bakers twine. 

I have a love for polar bears. Anytime we go to the zoo I have to see the giraffes AND polar bears. I was thrilled to see this next stamp set in the release line up. The set is called A Bear Kind of Winter. The images are just soooo sweet! I colored one up with copics, using grey tones and added some color with his hat and scarf. 


I created a wintry scene with another new product that I squealed over when I opened it....CIRCLE Stencils! Yes, I'm yelling! I love a great frame and not having to use masking paper with my dies makes me sooooo so happy! I laid down the outer frame of the middle sized stencil (there are three different sizes and all of them include the positive and negative of the circles) and I used the blending brushes to add Distress Oxide ink in Broken China and Peacock Feathers. 

I cut some glittery snowflakes and topped them with a sweet little pink heart in the centers from Reverse Confetti. The sentiment is from A Bear Kind of Winter. I stamped it onto Midnight card stock and versamark ink and used some white embossing powder to really make it pop. 

One last one from me for today. While I had my white embossing powder out and distress inks, I created this card with the String of Lights stamp set. Something about this card gives me  a little country Christmas feeling. 

I started with a bit of color smooshing in the background. I let the panel dry and then stamped the images and embossed them in white embossing powder. You can see that detail here. 


The sentiment is from the same set, String of Lights and I inked it up with some Midnight ink. I added a couple strips of festive paper and then tied it up in a twine bow. 


Thanks again for stopping by today. You will definitely see more of these sets soon. I have a cute reindeer card already in the hopper! 

ETA: Woohoo!! Nicole over at Picket Fence Studios has offered up a PRIZE that I can give away! Everyone who comments will be entered into a drawing for a FREE set of the new Circle Stencils! 1 comment per person please. I'll announce the winner next week! 

You can find all the NEW RELEASE products HERE on the Picket Fence Studios site.

Color Throwdown 510-Best Witches



Hi everyone!  Wanda is our hostess for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge and we all hoping you will love these colors - redorangekraft and green - inspired by this end of summer harvest photo!  Remember, you can add any neutrals to your design if needed.

Please use the keyword CTD510 in any public galleries and #ctd510 and #colorthrowdown when posting to social media.  If you have any questions, please go to the sidebar for all of the challenge guidelines.

We hope to see your creation in the gallery which gives you the chance to be our next guest star stamper! Check out below what the team has created this week.

All the brand new release goodies from Reverse Confetti are still sitting on my desk. So I couldn't resist using them. Plus, I couldn't get the witch hat idea out of my head using the new Triangle Tree stamps and Confetti Cuts


The sentiment circle is from Boo Yea. I cut the circle from Bags & Tag Creator Confetti Cuts in Tangerine. I stamped the sentiment cirlce in Rust ink. I inked up some Fall Foliage stamps and colored them with my Copics and then cut them out with the Fall Foliage Confetti Cuts.
Now for the witches hat. I stamped the striped Triangle Trees in Lead ink onto Stormy card stock. For the brim, I just cut a strip of Lead card stock  and snipped the ends at an angle. I love it.
The background is the fabulous Triangle Cover Plate. I'm in love. Cut that from Sand and adhered over a Cloud White card base. Some twine wrapped it all up. 




Check out the beautiful creations from the team this week! They are sure to inspire you, they always inspire me!! Have fun creating, we cannot wait to see what you come up with using these colors!
