Gina K. Designs - Friendship Flower

Hi everyone! Today starts another Coloring Challenge hosted by The Daily Marker . For more information, visit The Daily Marker blog. I'll be sharing my daily colorings mostly on Instagram , so make sure to follow my account here ! Follow the hashtag #thedailymarker30day to see everyone's creativity! For Day 1, I wanted to practice the no-line coloring technique with a floral image. The Friendship Flower from Gina K. Designs is the perfect image for such practice! I used Inkon3 Fade Out ink to stamp the image on Neenah Solar White cardstock. I colored the image with Copic markers, the colors I used are listed at the end of this blog post. Next, I stamped the "so glad we are friends" sentiment with black pigment ink and heat embossed the sentiment with clear embossing powder to create an ink resisting effect.   After I finished coloring the image, I used Gina K Masking Magic to create a mask to ink blend over. I used KS Tiles Stencil and Pumice Stone oxide ink to

Galaxy Star Lights with Chibitronics

Thank you for stopping by my blog! Today I am sharing a fun light-up galaxy card I made with Chibitronics sticker lights and Hero Arts Galaxy Peek A Boo Parts stamp set. Keep reading below for more details on how I made this card! First, I heat embossed the galaxy design from the Galaxy Peek A Boo Parts stamp set with white embossing powder onto an A2 sized piece of ink blending cardstock. Next, I ink blended over the embossed background with Cracked Pistachio, Blueprint Sketch, Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry and Black Soot Distress Oxide inks. To finish the background, I die cut the panel with the Distressed Edge Rectangle die to give it a torn edge look.  To create the light-up mechanism I used Chibitronics Yellow Sticker Lights and Copper Tape . I aligned the lights to be located underneath the stars to illuminate the sky. Check out the YouTube video below to see how I constructed the light up mechanism.  I heat embossed the sentiment onto a Flag Double Stitched die cut with

This coffee shop drive-thru window showcases the  ShadowBox Window Die  and the  MB Coffee Shop  set.

This card is featured on the  Art Impressions  blog today as well, check it out  here .   First, I glued the wood-printed paper to an A2 card base. Next, I die cut the square opening and then attached the white window paneling from the  ShadowBox Window  die set to the card front. I colored the  MB Coffee Shop  images with my Spectrum Noir Triblend markers and then attached them to the interior foldable panel and the card front. I used my scoring board and stitched scalloped border die to create a store-front canopy out of green cardstock. To finish the card I stamped the
