Ink Repeating | My Sweet Petunia

Hi friends! Today I’m sharing this card over My Sweet Petunia Blog. I’m using Layering Flutterbies Stamp & Die Set from Julie Hickey Designs and for my sentiment I have Signature Thinking of You Stamp & Die Set also by Julie Hickey Designs.

For this card I have a mix of a ink repeating technique and blending inks with mini daubers. The sponge from the daubers also gave some texture to the blending which is awesome. The inks used on this card are from Catherine Pooler Designs.

Let’s begin! I started by placing a silhouette of one of the butterflies on an A2 panel. I begun stamping from bottom to top. Then, using a dauber I applied three different inks to the silhouette stamp. The inks from Catherine Pooler Designs that I used are Aquatini, Lime Rickey and Something Borrowed.

I stamped each butterfly silhouette and repeated the process of ink blending each time. Next, I stamped the outline of the corresponding butterfly using white ink.

Additionally, I die cut the Signature Thinking of You Die and placed the negative part in the MISTI. I put the die cut inside the negative part and stamped the Signature Thinking of You Stamp and heat embossed it with WOW! Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder.

I die cut the Signature Thinking of You Die two more times and glued them behind the white heat embossed die cut. Next, I stamped the sentiment “Special Friend” from Friendship Flower Stamp set from Julie Hickey Designs.

Finally, I trimmed just a bit one side of this panel and then I added a white folded notecard at the back using glue. Last, I placed the white heat embossed die cut on top of the background and I also adhered a strip of teal cardstock at one side and this card was finished.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

Your friend,

Do you know the history and meaning of WCMD?

Cards have played an important role in social circles for hundreds of years, playing a role as a thoughtful gift all the way to a necessary part of proper etiquette. Consider, if you will, the calling card of the Victorian era, a term that has become so ubiquitous that the signature element of a bomb-maker or a criminal is said to be their ‘calling card’.

A small piece of paper bearing one’s name and often a decoration of some kind, the calling card (Also known as a visiting card) was presented to the servants of a household that it might be delivered to the masters of the house to announce visitors.

It was this era of propriety that also developed the concept of a dance card, a card specifically carried by women to fill out with the names of the men they intended to dance with that evening. After all, with so many interested parties it just made sense to keep track of them so that you could, in earnest, indicate that your dance card was full and thus politely decline an interested suitor.

Card Making Day reminds us that the best gifts come from the heart, the hands and vision of the people we love, so get out there and try making a card of your own! Nowadays, with the advancements in technology and the rise of the Internet, some people have stopped sending cards altogether. Instead, they send email cards. While there is nothing wrong with this, no one can deny that receiving a beautiful card feels a lot nicer. This is especially the case when the other person has gone to the effort of making the card!

For this fabulous blog hop I have created a Christmas card using the Texture effect additive from the WOW! Changers Lightning Kit, WOW! Red Glitz, WOW! Cramberry Sparkle Embossing Glitter, WOW! Galaxy Glow Embossing Glitter and WOW! Metallic Gold Embossing Powder.

Also, I have used this fabulous Christmas stamp set “All is Calm” by Evelin T Designs and this word die “Jolly” by Catherine Pooler Designs.

Hello Sunshine Collection from Catherine Pooler in Collaboration with Scrapbook

Hello friends! I’m so happy to be participating in this collaboration with Scrapbook.com and Catherine Pooler.

The Hello Sunshine Collection from Catherine Pooler is now available at the Scrapbook.com shop! YAY!!!

The products from Catherine Pooler Designs I used are I Scream, You Scream Stamps and Die, Punctuated Party Stamp, Celebrate Die, Summertime Patterned Paper Pack, Charleston Sequin Mix, Midnight Ink Pad, Mint to Be Ink Pad, Melon Ice Ink Pad, It’s  A Boy Ink Pad and Be Mine Ink Pad.

Let’s begin! For my first project I created a Bridge Card. I cut a 4 1/4″ x 8″ piece of cardstock and score at 1 1/4″ x 2 1/2″ from both ends. Then, I glued on top one of the Summertime patterned papers. Then, I created the bridge which measured 5 1/2″ wide and stamped on top one of the images from the Punctuated Party Stamp and white heat-embossed.

Next, I cut a piece of patterned paper to create a smaller bridge that goes inside the card adding more dimension. This piece measures 3 1/2″ wide and was scored at 1/4″ x 1/4″ from each end.

I glued this smaller bridge to the inside of the card and additionally I attached to it the sentiment stamped using Catherine Pooler Designs Be Mine Ink Pad.

I stamped the images from Catherine Pooler I Scream, You Scream Stamp onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, colored them using Copic markers and using the coordinating dies I die cut them.

Before adding the bridge on the front, I adhered a piece of acetate to the back, large enough to glue on top all my images.

Finally, I placed the frontal bridge with all the images and some stars that I die cut using Catherine Pooler I Scream, You Scream Dies and a small card base at the back to write your message.

My next project is a shaker card that I created by stamping the Punctuated Party Stamp using Melon Ice Ink Pad, Mint to Be and It’s a Boy Ink Pads onto a white piece of cardstock.  

Then, I adhered this panel to a white card base using glue. I also die cut 4 rectangular frames and the last one was out of one sheet of of Summertime patterned paper.

I created the shaker pocket and added Catherine Pooler Designs Charleston Sequin Mix inside and closed the shaker pocket.

Finally, I applied Melon Ice Ink Pad to a piece of white cardstock and then die cut the Catherine Pooler Designs Celebrate Die and placed it on top of the acetate.

On my last project I created a fused shaker card using a photo protector. I just loved how this turned out! Using the We R Memories Fuse Tool I made a shaker pocket sealing 3 edges and reserved.

Then, on a white panel I die cut some borders to create the shaker pocket and also I stamped the sentiment using Melon Ice Ink Pad.

Next, I adhered the fused shaker pocket reserved at the back of this white panel using double sided tape. Additionally, I added double sided foam squares and placed it on top of a white card base.

Finally, I added a stripe of patterned paper, the Ice Cream truck and some Wink of Stella.

These were my cards for today and I really hope you get lots of inspiration. The Catherine Pooler Designs Hello Sunshine Collection is just fabulous! And you can find at Scrapbook.com

Have an amazing and sweet day friends!
