All-Purpose Ink for Winter fun

I was amazed by the different uses for this great ink that I was introduced to by Stampin' Up. There are videos and ideas all over Splitcoast Stampers for the ink.

It is currently available in the Stampin' Up Holiday mini catalog.

For this card I used a color ink not available through Stampin' Up - darn! The color of the Tsukineko all-purpose ink I used for this card is white.

I stamped all images by daubering the ink onto the stamps. A little ink goes a LONG way!

Stamps: Winter Post, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Patterned Pines
Paper: Night of Navy
Ink: Tsukineko all-purpose ink
Punches: modern label & word window
Other: daubers, Nestabilities circles and scalloped circles, white organdy ribbon

NOTE: For the modern label and scalloped circle pieces of paper I daubed ink on the NoN paper after punching them out. I decided that white paper would be too contrasting and would ruin my soft effect.

A Fifth Avenue Floral Wedding card

Hello everyone! I am going to try my hand at this blogging thing. I really enjoy stamping and scrapbooking (um yeah, when I get the itch to scrapbook). Otherwise my main focus is cards, card and more cards.

I made this card with some scraps of Bell Bleu paper from Stampin' Up. It wasn't hard at all.

  • I stamped the flower in Basic Black.
  • Outlined the black with Bordering Blue marker.
  • Took some ink and my blender pen and "shaded" in the rest
  • The sentiment is stamped in Close To Cocoa, as there is no such thing as Kraft ink.
Simple enough and perfect for a wedding or switch it up with a Happy Mother's Day or other sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set from Stampin' Up.

As always thanks for visiting.
