Gina K Designs Wreath Builder

Instagram:  @amypeach1978

My Gina K Designs Wreath Builder stamp and stencil set finally came off backorder and I couldn't resist playing over the weekend.  I had watched Jennifer McGuire's video from about a month ago and loved how she used a bigger piece of cardstock than would fit in the stencils so she could make a rectangle shaped card panel, so I had to copy that idea.  I am more drawn to rectangle cards for some reason.  :)

Alcohol Ink Background--Neat & Tangled Sentiment

Instagram:  @amypeach1978

This card was my first foray into alcohol inks and I looove the way it turned out!  I made two backgrounds--the first time didn't turn out great and I think it's because I manipulated it too much.  This one turned out way better--I just dropped the two ink colors onto Yupo paper, dripped on silver and gold mixatives, dripped on the blender solution, and tipped the paper to let the excess ink drip off.  Then I let it go.  The colors are so stunning and dynamic.  The entire card took me about 20 minutes, including the alcohol ink play time and drying time.

Hello Bluebird Stamps--Springtime

Instagram:  @amypeach1978

I absolutely LOVE the cute stamps by Hello Bluebird!  I used almost all of the images in the Springtime set to create this happy card.  I bought an extra Springtime stamp set to give away on my Instagram page once I hit 1500 followers, so be sure to check that out! :)

I had a lot of fun with this card.  I used white pigment ink to sponge a subtle cloud background on the blue cardstock and used a couple of hill dies for a sloped, two-tiered hillside.  I went a little crazy with the Glossy Accents and applied it to all of the flowers, the frog's eyeballs, the balloon flowers, the sun, the snail shell, the butterflies, and the little bows.  I also used the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter brush pen on a lot of those elements as well (not the frog's eyes lol)

Hello Bluebird Stamps--McGregor's Garden

Instagram:  @amypeach1978

I had to use the little vegetables in a shaker card with these adorable stamps from Hello Bluebird Stamps.  This set is called McGregor's Garden and I actually affixed the veggies inside the panel so they don't overlap each other, but the star confetti is loose and shakes around.  I used about six of the Gallery Frame #1 die stacked on top of each other to assemble the shaker window.  I used Copic markers to color the sweet little bunny, bird, and veggies.  I used the Marvy Uchida Snow Marker on the bunny tail for a cute, cottony look.  I applied Glossy Accents to the flower pot, the bird's beak, and the yellow center of the daisy for some extra shine.
