Inspired By All the Little Things #78

SWEET inspiration at Inspired By All the Little Things #78 for the next 2 weeks.
I was inspired by the white on white texture and delicate flowers.
This is the first card, in like FOREVER, that has no stamping:)) It is really quite freeing to score, cut, and glue! The Folk Hearts and Brushstroke LOVE are from Essentials By Ellen. The sweet flowers are Memory Box.


Linda Snodgrass of Lin's Craft Corner is our featured designer for the month of January.

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Sakura Blossom Release Blog Hop

Feeling blessed to be a part of the Build-A-Flower: SAKURA BLOSSOM release at Altenew! It was delightful creating with the set:)) there are so many different ways to use the stamps and Dies! The simple shape of the blossom lends itself to MANY different flower projects. I have 4 cards to share with you today. You can see the variety that can be achieved, making this set a MUST HAVE for any flower loving crafter:))

BAF-SAKURA BLOSSOM
This stamp set features layered cherry blossoms and leaves, and the accompanying die have score details to help you create 3D flowers.
For my first card I created an almost one layer card with the stamps from Build-A-Flower: SAKURA BLOSSOM . I stamped the solid image blooms onto pink CS with White pigment ink and let it dry, then came back with the Artistic Markers to add depth and detail to each one. Cut masks for each colored bloom and stamped the word hello in Frosty Pink crisp ink, as subtle background. Then I cut two layers of the HELLO die from FLOWER ARRANGEMENT die set, stacked them up and glued them to the front of the finished panel. 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Playing with the Sakura Blossom dies in the set for this next card. 
Several layers of each sized blossom were cut from pink vellum and white CS, then gently folded at the score lines on the petals to create this fluffy multi-layered blossom:)) Two center piece die cuts are colored  with R335 Artistic Marker and placed in the center of the petals. The leaves are cut and stamped with Frayed Leaf using the detailed leaf image only.I then added the blossom to a panel of Woodgrain CS cut with the Layered Medallion coverplate A and layered that onto a base of white CS with a circle cut out of the center so pink/green splatters could show through. The sentiment is Heat embossed with Antique Silver Crisp Embossing Powder on a strip of clear vellum wrapped around the panel. One lone dewdrop is at the center of the blossom.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Inking up ALL the layers in the set for this card.  I created a cluster by masking the blossoms as I stamped and added leaves, then heat embossed several frames from the FRAMED stamp set. Love those Matte Enamel Dots as embellishment:) To add a bit for definition to each blossom petal I inked the edges of the solid images with the medium shade of pink ink.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
One LONE blossom embellishes my final card for today. I wanted to share the lovely simplicity of one single cut blossom colored with Artistic Markers anchored with the l*v*e from INLINE ALPHA Die set . Framed with a simple Frame die all on Woodgrain paper
The Sakura blossom is a lovely Japanese flower, and is known as a cherry blossom in some parts of the world. "Sakura" is derived from the Japanese word for "bloom" - "saku." In the United States, tourists travel to our capital, Washington D.C., to see the flowers bloom at the annual cherry blossom festival.
This special product is only sold as a set, not individually.

The Ton’s 3rd Anniversary Release - Day2

Hello everyone and welcome to DAY 2 showcasing new items from The Ton Stamps 3rd Anniversary Release!  We are debuting 6 new stamp sets and coordinating dies.
All new stamps and Dies will be in the shop TOMORROW, January 18!

I have two cards for you today:
LUSH, gorgeous peonies to color in the set called Peony Bouquet

  • On white CS, I stamped the large Peony Bouquet image with black ink 
  • cut a mask and stamped the bowl with a very light Crystal Pewter 
  • then colored with alcohol markers
  • Sentiment is from Celebration Rose Cluster
  • Embellished with Sakura Petals Couture mix.


The next card features Timeless Peonies Print
This set is unique in that you can create an entire background with multiple layering images:)
To make the pretty print panel: using the MISTI
  • I inked the largest background solid image with Vanilla Cupcake Frosting ink then "kissed it" with Delicate Polka Dots before pressing it to a white A2 sized card stock.
  • Took a marker and filled in the Dots with a shade darker yellow left by the kissing technique
  • Next, the Leaf image is inked with Warm Hazelnut then added the smaller shadowing leaf images inked with Ballet Slippers
  • All three layers of the peony cluster is inked several times with Ballet Slippers too
  • The sentiment is inked with Beach Blonde
  • Trimmed the finished panel with Double Stitched Rectangle die and cut one corner off with the Double Stitched Circle die.

Embellished with Sakura Petals Couture mix.
