Ink it Up is a challenge where, on the second and fourth Wednesday
of each month, Heidi and I share cards that we've made with new stamp sets
that we haven't used yet.
Today, I'm sharing some cards that I made using my
I started by stamping the bear, present and sentiment onto a piece of watercolour paper,
which I diecut using my Mama Elephant Femme Frames diecuts.
I coloured him in using my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers and a water brush.
I stamped the present a second time and cut it out by hand, coloured it in
and then adhered it to my card.
I also paper-pieced his scarf using some Studio Calico patterned paper,
which I also used to mat my card.
On this card, I used the same supplies and colouring techniques,
but I used the coordinating diecuts.
I didn't do any paper piecing, but I did blend blue ink behind the bear before
adhering him with dimensional adhesive, but it's hard to tell in the photo
(oh how I miss more hours in the day when it's daylight!)
I just think this bear is so adorable!
Before I inked up this stamp set, Sage did.
She made some cards for the 14 people she delivers newspapers to each day
(which I thought I photographed, but now can't find!)
She also made a cute tag for the secret Santa exchange she did with her choir.
She stamped him onto a Reverse Confetti tag
and coloured him in with my Zigs and a water brush.
Then, we rolled up a $5 bill and tied it with twine and adhered to the card,
so it looks like the bear was holding it.
Apparently, everyone could tell it was Sage's gift. ;)
Okay, that's it for us for today.
