It’s Your Day

 

This is a card I made on my own time for a friend. It’s to be her birthday card. I used coordinations paper for the solids on the base of the card. And then I used K&CO paper for the main background with some lovely embellishments from K&Co.

Bird in Flight | Stamping Gear

 

 

 

This is a card I created using the Inkadinkado® Stamping Gear. It was a lot of fun. I started with the light orange. Then I stamped the dark teal and then finished with the bright coral red, embossing it. I used K&Co. embellishments for the center. I do like using the stamping gear as a great layering technique to many different projects. Project is © Inkadinkado®|EK Success.

My Henna Cookies

I know this isn’t stamping, BUT, I love baking too! Thought I would post these because they were a lot of fun and the cookies are creative. I did these for a local fundraiser at an Indian concert. They wanted to raise money at the concert and asked if I could make some type of food to sell. What’s better than a cookie, right?! The recipe is for a Mehndi spice cookie. It’s kind-of like gingerbread, although not as sweet. For the henna designs I used royal icing. And for the actual hand, I made my own template out of a sturdy plastic.

Halloween Floral Arrangement

 

October is here! Fall is my favorite season so I decided to do a fall arrangement using black flocking powder. I selected a bunch of different flowers and stems that I liked and found a matching vase that reminded me of Halloween. I then selected a few artificial branches of fall leaves. I painted them with craft glue and heavily distributed the black flocking powder over each leaf.

Halloween Printers Tray


Halloween is just around the corner! I actually did this last season. But since my blog is new, I decided to post it. This is one of my all-time favorite projects that I’ve ever done. I love to create stuff for Halloween and Inkadinkado’s new Halloween stamp line was just screaming for a printers tray. Project is © Inkadinkado®|EK Success.

Stamp Gear Art Canvas

 

Ok, so maybe you’ve heard all the hype about Inkadinkado’s Stamping Gear from CHA. It’s pretty amazing, the possibilities are endless. I’ve been told this piece that I did was a big hit at CHA and it’s certainly one of my favorites as well. And ofcourse, whenever possible, I like to incorporate beautiful stamps into home decor projects. I love fine art. But I also love vintage. And collage. And sometimes, funky stuff to hang on the wall. I brought all these ideas together with this one piece. The beauty of stamping gear is it’s almost never the same and you can make your designs as small or as big as you like. I used acrylic paint with these stamps rather than ink. I prefer to use acrylic paints with the stamping gear rather than ink in general, because I think the designs are more bold and vibrant. I found the awesome illustration of the woman in an old vintage music sheet booklet I bought at an auction. The buttons are also vintage that I used to create flowers with the book pages.

Baby Shower

So normally I’m not so into super cutsy stuff, but I’m pleased with the way this one turned out. I created this for Michael’s featuring Inkadinkado’s wood, clear, and cling sets. I created the baby block favors out of a basic box template, stamped them in varying shades of pinks and purples and colored the images in with white pencil chalk for a soft and delicate finish. The card could be an announcement card, or in this case, a card for the Mommy-to-be. I also created simple cookie favors with the wonderful baby K&CO. paper, Inkadinkado’s stamps, and EK punches. The pail is for the table center. I wanted to do something a little different and fun. The stamped images punched and placed on layered colored papers adhered with lollipop sticks.
