Hello everyone! It’s Amanda from Twiddler’s Nook joining you today with some fun inspiration for the Thermoweb | Miss Ink Stamps Collaboration Week!

Distress Oxide Ink – squeezed lemonade, mowed lawn, blueprint sketch
I started my card with an oversized white panel that I ink blended distress oxides in squeezed lemonade, mowed lawn and blueprint sketch on. Then I spritzed it with water and blotted it dry. Next, I trimmed it in half which gave me two strips that measured about 6×2.5 inches.
I used some tape runner to adhere a strip to my glass mat, then sprayed my large random dots stencil with pixie spray and stuck it to my panel. I inked this layer up with white pigment ink using a blending brush.
Next, I sprayed the random dots stencil with pixie spray, placed it on my panel and then spread iridescent glitz glitter gel through it with my stencil pal. I cleaned up my area and washed my stencils, then switched gears to get messy again with the other strip I had.
I stuck this strip to my glass mat with more tape runner and sprayed my stencil with pixie spray again. Then I spread transfer gel through the diamond fade stencil with my stencil pal. I removed the stencil and cleaned it up again, setting both panels aside to dry now.
While they were drying, I turned on my laminator to heat up, stamped some images from Miss Ink Stamps Dee and Dum, and Rub-a-Dub Doggies stamp sets. I colored them with Copic markers and used the scan-n-cut to cut them out.
Once the panels were dry, I trimmed them down to 5.5×2.25 inches. I ran the diamond fade panel through my laminator with black Deco Foil for a slick black look.
I stamped a sentiment for each card using the same stamp sets and die cut them with Pink & Main Large Sentiment Strip dies. Then I added foam strips to the back of the stenciled panels and foam squares to the back of the sentiments and images. Now we assemble our cards!
Here is a look at the Dee and Dum card. Aren’t those guys just too cute?!? I love it and can just hear them saying that phrase. For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to their hats, bowties, and buttons. Then I glued a scattering of Black Eyed Baubles from Trinity Stamps across the design.
For the Rub-a-Dub Doggies card, I adhered everything down and then added glossy accents to the rubber ducky and the dog’s nose. I also used unicorn Stickles randomly on some of the bubbles. I thought it tied them in with the background nicely. Then to finish this card off I added a scattering of Twiddler’s Nook Half-tone pearls in the teal\green colorway.
I just love using stencils, getting inky and messy with these fun products! They add so much interest and texture to simple card designs! Don’t you think?!? I hope you found some fun inspiration today to create something wonderful and share it with someone!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
