Inky Antics Stamp Set - Passionate Paper Designs

Hello, crafty friends!!

Today I wanted to share with you this unique card stamp and die set from Inky Antics.  Its a fun card kit that comes with a shiny reversible sequence fabric that you can run your fingers through and have some fun with!!  I will post below links to these products.


I think it would have been more fitting to use a color card base but I didn't think of it at the time, so its all white.  Maybe next time I will do that.

Inky Antics Youtube Tutorial

Here's Inky Antics video on ho to put this card together.  I followed the technique that is NOT a trifold card.  


The cats were inked with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic markers.

Big Cat:
W9, W7, W5
Smaller Cat:
E33, E31
Balloon string:
BG13, V01
Ground:
T4, T2

The cards size I used here is cut to be a 5" x 7".

Well, that's it. I only showed the die I used to cut the Lollipop circle area, but there is also one that cuts out the cat if you want a 3D effect.


Welcome to Inky Antics!

Passionate Paper & Friends - Sponsor Week Post So Suzy

Hello, crafty friends! 

Today I want to share two cards I created using rubber stamps from So Suzy.  I enjoyed so much creating these cards using the Fairy and Fairy Dust stamps and a fun Lemon stamps to create a background base for my second card.

I created this card to showcase this Sponsor of the Week at 
Passionate Paper Creations & Friends.  



I used a black ink to stamp the Fairy and Dust using the Misty Stamping tool to get a really nice dark impression over a background colored using Distress inks.

On the second card, I used a Memento Yellow ink to create a background on the card and then selectively colored three of them with Yellow Copic Sketch marker. I added a simple sentiment and viola!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you that you come back again!

Don't forget to subscribe and comment! I love to hear from you!

Keep getting crafty and best wishes from
