Melted snowmen can be cute, too, you know! I love the Simon Hurley create. Snazzy Snowmen Stamp Set and made an easy one layer card perfect for mass production!
I find it easiest to create a one layer card with multiple stamped images with a stamping platform. My favorite is the MISTI. I cut a piece of Stark White Cardstock to 4.25" x 5.5" and placed the sentiment from the Snazzy Snowmen Stamp Set at the top center of the card and stamped it with black ink. Then I stamped the melted snowman stamp from the Snazzy Snowmen Stamp Set five times on the front of the card.

It's sneak peek time for the Fall release from Miss Ink Stamps! I'm sharing a peek at the new Coffee Gnomes Stamp Set as well as the Pumpkin Spice Stamp Set with a simple stenciled background.
I made the whole background scene with just some LDRS Creative Hybrid Inks and the Under the Sea Stencil! It's amazing how easy it is to use the stencil to create a simple, easy scene! I prefer to spray my stencil with a temporary adhesive to ensure that it doesn't wiggle around as I add ink over the top of the stencil. This is optional - you can use a bit of masking tape if you prefer! Once I positioned my stencil over my card I used Hybrid Inks for the scene. A bit of Tropical Sea for the water at the top, Boysenberry Blast for the fishies, and Olive Branch for the seaweed at the bottom. The white in the middle was too "cold" for me, so I very lightly blended some Swimming Hole ink over the scene to give it a watery appearance.
There's nothing more perfect to add to the scene than a mermaid! The Mermaid Treasures Stamp Set has three different mermaids! I picked my favorite - a tough choice, I know! - and stamped her with Raven Hybrid Ink, colored her with alcohol markers, and cut her with the coordinating Mermaid Treasures Dies, and added her to the card with foam.
I finished the card with a cute sentiment from the Mermaid Treasures Stamp Set and stamped it with Raven Hybrid Ink. Hopefully you found a bit of watery inspiration today! Happy crafting!

The creepiest time of the year is almost upon us! And I thought these cute little beetles would look perfect in a web of ThermOWeb Flock!
I love a nice cutesy Halloween card, but the spooky and creepy ones are right up my alley, too! I started with a piece of lime green cardstock and the Spider Web Stencil from Pretty Pink Posh. I sprayed the back of the stencil lightly with Pixie Spray - just a light layer will do the trick - and then let the adhesive dry for about a minute and temporarily adhered it to the lime green cardstock. I used a Stencil Pal to add a thin, even layer of Deco Foil Transfer Gel Blanco over the stencil, removed the stencil, and set the piece aside to dry completely. Be sure to wash your tools right away so the Blanco Gel doesn't dry onto them.
