Ranger-Tim Holtz Paint and Mama Elephant Shooting Star

Hey folks! 

Today I'm sharing something new for me. 

I recently decided to check out some Ranger-Tim Holtz Distress Paints. I love their inks so much and I love paint, so I thought I'd give these a go. 

Nothing speaks to my inner 5 year old like paint. Well maybe glitter...but I really love liquid paint. I make a spectacular mess every time, but it is so much fun! For real peeps, I should probably where a plastic bib, because I am a maniac with paint. I don't know why, but it's a great ride, so it's cool!

So that brings us to my card for today.

If you're interested in any of the products I've used, I will have thumbnail links for you at the end of the post!


Awhile back, I bought the Shooting Star Stamp Set by Mama Elephant, and I've gotta say, what a lovely set it is. I have the Little Girl Stamp on my "someday" list, but in the meantime this sentiment came in handy dandy. I simply stamped the sentiment with Versamark Ink and Ranger Silver Embossing Powder on a piece of Simon Says Stamp Black Cardstock and I mounted that on a piece of Wildberry Pie Bazzill Cardstock.

The 2 colors of Ranger-Tim Holtz Distress Paint I used were Broken China and Black Soot. I experimented with a lot of things, but what I actually ended up doing was applying it straight from the bottle and then I blended them out with a damp paper towels. I really just kept layering them until I got what I wanted. Well, I kinda got what I wanted. The picture I had in my head is not what I ended up with, but I decided I like it, so I called it a day. Just like Distress Inks, drying in between layers works the best to get that paint to really build up. After I let it dry for the last time, I used Ranger-Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Chipped Sapphire and a Blending Tool to add some depth and interest to the Broken China.

I also splattered some Ranger Perfect Pearl in Perfect Pearl (mixed with water) and some Ranger-Tim Holtz Distress Paint in Picket Fence that I had watered down for a "starry" look. I also added some Martha Stewart Iridescent Stars.

That's it! Easy peasy and loads of fun!

Until next time!

Making An Easy One Layered Card - Featuring Avery Elle and Copic Coloring

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a suer easy and super fast one layered card with you all!

It's no secret that I love to mask and build up the images on a card. However, sometimes it's great to skip the masking and get the same effect. That's what I've done on my card today folks.

I'm a sucker for butterflies and if you make them rainbow and I will clap my hands like a demented seal. For real. So today I used the Butterflies Stamp Set by Avery Elle and did some basic Copic Coloring (color choices in thumbnail links below) in a rainbow color scheme.

On Neenah White Cardstock, I stamped my images in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink with my MISTI Stamping Tool. You don't need a MISTI, but I'm a manic and it's almost impossible for me to line up my stamps again with a …

The stamp set I used today is Ah-mazing! It's the Hello Lovely Stamp Set by Concord & 9th and I'm tellin ya folks, if you're looking for something that has a whole lotta wow factor AND is easy, this is your stamp set.

Using my MISTI Stamping Tool, I stamped my Neenah White Cardstock Panel with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink.

There are some really groovy stamps in the set if you wanted to just ink them up and stamp them within the outline image, but I LOVED the idea of coloring this bad boy in.

Using Dies On A One Layer Card + Altenew Majestic Blooms

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share another card with you all! I've done loads of Copic coloring lately and today's card is no different, but I wanted to try some new (to me) as well.

I think Altenew has some of the most amazing flowers on the market. Their design and versatility is ah-mazing. The Majestic Blooms Stamp set by Altenew is actually a multi-layer set, but I climb on the struggle bus every time I attempt this kind of stamping, so I decided to stick with what I'm comfy with and simply use the outline of the flower and color it in with Copic's.


Since, I'm going to color this in with Copic's and I don't want them to bleed through the inside of my card I stamped the flower and leaves on a piece of Neenah White Cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. This …
