Ink Refills-DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge No.242

This week’s DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge is a “Product Spotlight” featuring Stampin’ Up! Ink Refills.

And you thought Stampin’ Up! Ink Refills were only for re-inking your stamp pads…

For the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge NO.242 featuring Stampin' Up! Ink Refills. For more details click through to my blog. #crackedpotstamper #stampinup #inkrefill #handstamped via @DawnThomas (Cracked Pot Stamper)

This week I was inspired by finding ways to use Stampin’ Up! Ink Refills for something more exciting than merely re-inking my stamp pads.

I love that there is no stamping (unless you want to add a sentiment inside) on this card but it is filled with lots of fun and beads of silica gel (Warning: DO NOT EAT)!

It’s All in the Details:

  • “shaker” equates to silica beads
  • yes, the kind that you find in new purses and luggage and such

Crazy! Right? I colored them with my Stampin’ Up! Ink Refills to match my card

It’s easy as 1-2-3

  1. cut open silica packet and place beads in small container (I used an empty embellishment container)
  2. add 3-5 drops of Stampin’ Up! Ink Refill
  3. put lid on and shake
Lovely Words Shaker Card
  1. Die cut “friend” from Peekaboo Peach cardstock using Lovely Words Thinlits Dies and the largest scalloped oval from Layering Oval Framelits. Die cut Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper with large oval to create window. Glue “friend” cutout onto Designer Series Paper with Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Fine-Tip Glue Pen. Set aside to dry.
  2. Using Big Shot and Fluttering Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, emboss Soft Sky cardstock, adhere to Berry Burst card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Fast Fuse adhesive.
  3. Adhere Window Sheet to Designer Series Paper with Fast Fuse. Tie double bow with Berry Burst Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, adhere with Glue Dots to Designer Series Paper.
  4.  Create safe place Silica beads to shake around in by adhering Adhesive Foam Strips around oval window area (we don’t want any of those little buggers to escape!)
  5. Carefully place a pile of silica beads on card base (they get a little excited and like to roll around-I put my card base on a paper plate in an effort to contain them). Align and adhere Designer Series Paper layer over silica beads. And shake, shake, shake!
  6. Address the envelope, adhere stamp and pop in the mailbox to brighten someone’s day.

TIP: I prefer Fast Fuse for getting into all the nooks and crannies of embossed layers. 

Cardstock Cuts
  • Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper: 3-3/4″ x 5″
  • Berry Burst: 4-1/4″ x 11″ (card base-scored and folded at 5-1/2″)
  • Soft Sky: 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Peekaboo Peach: 2-3/4″ x 3-1/2″
  • Window Sheet: 2-3/4″ x 3-1/2″

 



Always take the scenic route.

Tic Tac Toe Challenge #7: Colorful Seasons

Tic Tac Toe Challenge First Timer…not to the game but to the card-making challenge.

And I love everything about it!

  • the options
  • the elements
  • the endless possibilities
  • and the inspiration of the other participants

Tic Tac Toe Challenge Number Seven Inspiration graphic. For more details, click through to my blog #crackedpotstamper #stampinup #tttc007

 

This week I was inspired by the top row: acetate, critter and die cut.

I’m in love with the deep rich Fresh Fig cardstock and ink combined with the Gold Foil and the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate of this card.

I have to be honest with you, I’ve had the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate on my shelf for months (probably since it was introduced in last year’s catalog) and never used it until recently.

Wow! Sure wish I had tried it earlier. Click here to see another project using this fabulous (and it really is fabulous) product.

  • Ink: Fresh Fig

Life is Beautiful Dragonfly Card

  1. Stamp greeting (Colorful Seasons stamp set) with NEW In Color Fresh Fig ink on scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock. Die cut with Big Shot and 2-3/8″ circle (Stitched Shapes Framelits).
  2. Using Big Shot, die cut smaller dragonfly (Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies) and 2-1/2″ scalloped circle (Layering Circles Framelits) from Gold Foil Sheet. Die cut 2-5/8″circle (Layering Circles Framelits) from Fresh Fig cardstock. Adhere circles on top of one another.
  3. Adhere dragonfly and sentiment to 4″ x 5-1/4″ Fabulous Designer Foil Acetate with NEW Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the Mini Stampin Dimensionals because they fit perfectly behind the dragonfly’s head.
  4. Attach Acetate to Fresh Fig card base (4-1/4″ x 11″, scored and folded at 5-1/2″) with Glue Dots and Snail Adhesive strategically hidden behind dragonfly head and sentiment.
  5. Embellish with Gold Metallic Enamel Shapes.
  6. Address the envelope, adhere stamp and pop in the mailbox to brighten someone’s day.

TIP: There is a protective layer on the back of the Fabulous Designer Foil Acetate-you will want to peel it off before applying adhesive

Hope to see you for another Tic Tac Toe Challenge.

Always take the scenic route.

DOSstamper STARS Thursday Challenge No.236 - Color My World

Time for the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge, this week it is a "Color My World" Challenge. 

This week I was inspired by a card in the 2017-18 Annual Catalog. Do you recognize it?

DOSstamper STARS Thursday Challenge No.236 - Flourishing Phrases Swirly Bird stamp sets card created by Dawn Thomas #crackedpotstamper

Due to a family emergency, I flew home to Iowa 10 days ago. I have been trying to be crafty in my mom's craft room…not an easy task.

I had to scrounge around a bit but I did finally find some things that I could combine to create this beautiful card. 

  • I now know what she will be getting for her birthday and Christmas.

I love the versatility of this card, with a few changes (colors or sentiment or both) you could have a completely different card.

Time for the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge, this week it is a "Product Spotlight" Challenge, featuring the new In-Colors for 2017/2018.

This week I was inspired by these 5 GORGEOUS new In-Colors…I absolutely love each of them.

DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge No. 234-Product Spotlight

I love the simple elegance of this card. It is quick and easy but the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper gives this sweet card a touch of elegance.

This paper reminds me of the fancy wallpaper patterns I would see while flipping through those gigantic wallpaper sample books, that weighed as much as a small child, to occupy myself (for what felt like hours) while my mom did her shopping.
