Love Is In the Air Slimline Valentine's Day Card | Honey Bee Stamps



Love Is In the Air Slimline Valentine's Day Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Hello, my Honey Bee Friends!

Have you ever gone on a Hot Air Balloon ride? It is still on my bucket list of one of the things I would love to do! One of these days...

Since Valentine's Day is just around the corner, I thought I would squeeze in another lovey, dovey card to celebrate the Day. Although I think this card could be used for so many other occasions simply by switching out the sentiment I used.

  CARD DETAILS

I began this card by cutting out a piece of Bristol Paper to create the Slimline card front to measure 8.5 x 4 inches. I then stamped out the Hot Air Balloon Stamps from the UP, UP AND AWAY set and then covered them up with some masks.

Next, I used the BACKGROUND BLENDER BRUSHES to blend out some colorful clouds using Atelier Inks and the OUTDOOR SCENE BUILDER Stencils.

Once the clouds were done, I removed the masks and colored in the balloons using Copic markers. I should have used Neenah paper for the Copic coloring, but at the time I thought only about the ink blending.  So I went with a Bristol paper which wasn't the best choice for alcohol markers as the paper is much too absorbent, making it more difficult to blend the alcohol inks. Regardless, I made it work, lol!

I then stamped out the banners to embellish each hot air balloon from the UP, UP AND AWAY set and then cut them out with the coordinating UP, UP AND AWAY DIES dies.

Next, I stamped out the Love is in The Air sentiment from the BLOWN AWAY set onto the stamped banner and used the coordinating BLOWN AWAY DIES to cut it out and then foam mounted it on to the center of the middle balloon.

To finish off and embellish this colorful card, I used some sticker gem from the OCEAN BREEZE GEM STICKER pack to add some bling to the middle balloon and added a sprinkle of SWEETHEARTS CLAY HEARTS here and there.

It is hard to see from these pictures, but I used a sparkle Gelly Roll pen to add highlights and details to the balloons.

I hope this Love Is In the Air Slimline Valentine's Day Card inspired you today and I wish you all a great Valentine's Day this year.  As for me on Valentine's, you can find our family at a Boston Pizza eating a Heart-shaped Pizza which has become a family tradition that started over 20 years ago when my husband and I first started dating. Yes, we are that romantic and now we even include the kids, lol! Do you have Valentine's Tradition? Let me know in the comment below if you do💖

Thank you for stopping by 😊
Until next time... Happy Crafting 👋

Hey Gorgeous, Colorful Birthday Card | Ink On 3 | Coloring with Atelier Inks



Hey Gorgeous, Colorful Birthday Card | Ink On 3 | Coloring with Atelier Inks

Hello, my friends! 

I am back again today with a colorful Gorgeous Birthday Card featuring the new HEY GORGEOUS stamp set recently released from Ink On 3. I love the size of this large stamp image! Plus, it comes with a bunch of little flower accessories and great sentiments to create some great girlfriend cards.

If you know me I love all things rainbow, so of course rather then just painting one plain old hair color I had to use all of them, lol!

CARD DETAILS

For this card, I began by stamping out the image from the HEY GORGEOUS set using BLACKOUT INK onto Bristol paper.

I then began by water coloring her skin using a small tip water brush pen. To create the skin color I used a blend of Atelier Twiggy Brown, Bee Sting Yellow, Marilyn Red, and Marigold Orange.  To her cheeks, I added a touch of Marilyn Red color.

Next, I colored her hair in rainbow order starting with Atelier Marilyn Red, Marigold Orange, Bee Sting Yellow, Goddess Green, Peacock Blue, and My Jam Purple.

For her hat, I watercolored it using Atelier Twiggy Brown, I love the shade you get with the brown as it resulted in a leathery kinda look.

To finish off her lips I used the ink from the Re-inker Marilyn Red because I wanted a deeper shade of red on her lips.

Once the image was dry, I stamped out the black florals on the hat using JUICY INK and heat set it using the BLACK AS NIGHT EP. For the Gold Flower, I used GOLD RUSH EP and fussy cut it out to add to the hat.

I then finished off the card by stamping out the sentiments from the HEY GORGEOUS set and then used LIQUID PIXIE DUST to add sparkle to her lips and hair. If you are on Instagram watch my feed as I will try posting a clip of the sparkle this card has as pictures can never do it justice.

For more finishing touches, I added a pearl to the flower and glossy accents to her lips for additional shine!

I hope you found this Hey Gorgeous Colorful Birthday Card inspiring. For more Ink On 3 inspiration click HERE. Wishing you all a bright and colorful day!
