Frida - for Ink Art Designs team

Frida is one of my most favourite Artists.

Along with her life and story.

Today I am sharing a couple of cards I made

for Ink Art Designs.

 This first one has the image stamped onto Acetate then layered

onto white etc.

The flower background was made with some napkins I had laying around

Both of the Frida images/stamps I use today are from

Ink Art Designs and made by

Lost Coast Design

This one is also stamped on acetate (with staz on ink btw)

The background was made by spritzing ink onto my cardstock

then shimmer onto my embossing folder - came out sssooo cool...

A couple of feathers at the top for accent.

Thanks for stopping by - and be sure to check over at

Mermaid Tales


    So excited today to share some cards I made using 

Zelith's tail

which is made by Lavina - but from the shop at 

Ink Art Designs

The one above - I stamped bits of her tail..then used the Believe stamp, layers and some stickles on the tail and a bit of blue sponging around the edges.

 This one I used different coloured embossing powders on the tail

stamped on some Lavinia sea bubbles - flecks of ink..some blue bling and more stickles.

and of course a bit of seaweed under her.

Another take on the first one - this one just black and white and 

a few shiny things.

My FAV for last...

Here is Zelith taking a deep dive ....Used the star cluster stamp inside the moon - Embrace your Dreams

saying....The card is sponged. Tail embossed in black and painted

green with lots of glitter on it (can't really see it) The Stars are embossed in Silver.  Silver threads wound around the top.

Bottom part is some cheese cloth that has come colours spritzed on it.

Hope you enjoyed...

All Stamps used from Ink Art Designs shop

was perfect for these cards and sayings

This next one is a slim line card
sponged with Red Apple ink all around

Dream on

 Playing around today...

been so hot here so hardly in my craft

room this past week.

A group of us ladies had a pile of papers

to choose from - then the challenge was

to use it on a card!!

here is my make...

So the background paper is what I got..

the image is clear embossed then some

pop up dots...

add few flowers.ribbon behind.

debated on a saying..finally decided on this one from

Finnabair stamps as it looked like the lady was dreaming/thinking

of days gone by?  or what could have been?

So thanks for stopping by !!!

Waterfall card - Ink Art Designs..

 Whoo hoo 

Well I love playing with different folds etc.

So today I tried the Waterfall card for the first time.

So much fun...

Stamps from Ink Art Designs

made by Katzelkraft worked out great.

So I embossed the images - coloured them in - then

inked around the edges.  With my layering I roughed

up the edges...give the card a bit more character.

Then as you slowly pull the tab - its like a little

flip chart - so cool....

Be sure to stop over at Ink Art Designs blog

Happy Birthday !! - Ink Art Design team

 Hey - welcome to my blog today !!

This card I made for 

Ink Art Design team today

was a bit of labour of love

Made it with my grandson in mind..

His 2nd birthday but 1st birthday

with our family !!!

Using Katzelkraft stamps...

Made this wrap around card.

I embossed the characters onto white cardstock

and coloured them in - then adhered onto my blue card.

The bubbles are from another stamp set I have...

(little bit of stickles on there for some glitter)

Then I masked the animals and splatted some ink.

Edges were sponged with some Distress ink.

And the cut out circle had the saying embossed then

sponged all round.

Inside - the final guy from the set...just chillin'

I was quite pleased how it all turned out.
