Strawberries? Yes Please!!

Hey peeps.  Sorry for being a little MIA.  I have been dealing with some health issues however I'm not going to allow it to stop me from doing the things I love.  It just might take me a little bit longer to get it done but hey when life gives you strawberries, make a card!

Summer is upon us and I'm in the mood for something sweet.  Strawberries? Yes Please!!  What is better than a bunch of fresh strawberries on a hot summer day.  Or even a strawberry smoothie.  Yummy!  What's even better is sending a sweet message to a friend with a cute strawberry border.

The adorable Strawberries On The Border from Technique Tuesday is a perfect way to add some sweetness to your summer inspired cards.  The border crafting die is so easy to use and make such a fun statement.


I quickly colored my strawberries, leaves and flowers with color shine in several different red, green and yellow.  For the flower I just spritzed on a little bit of shimmery white. It's a great way to pull out those color sprays and add them to your card. Next I used the Cool and Sweet crafting dies to triple cut out the sweet sentiment.  I stacked them up for a thicker sentiment.


To complete the card I trimmed down this panel and adhered it to a white card base.  I inlaid the strawberries, leaves and and flowers back in place with glue and lightly sponged on some green chalk round the borders edge.  I then stamped the simply 100% naturally sentiment from the Sweet Summertime stamp set into the front of my panel.  Lastly I glued on the sweet sentiment and my card was complete.


I have a listing below of all the products I used to make this card.  Affiliate links are used at ho cost to you.  Thank you so much for your support by using my links. Thanks for stopping by today.  I'll see you guys back here soon.  Have a fabulous day.

The giveaway ends June 20, 2018 at 12:00 PM (NOON) CST.  Winners will be on the Ink On 3 blog.



For my card today I stamped the new Hollyhocks image on Canson watercolor paper with the InkOn3 blackout ink.  I used my Mission Gold watercolors for my medium today.  I also used the Escoda Ultimo travel brushes.  I LOVE this brushes.  So easy to use and portable for on the go painting.  and die cut out with the Hollyhocks using the coordinating die.  Next I used the beautiful thank you die that comes with this die cut set and triple cut it out using yellow, black and pink cardstock.  It's such a pretty font and I love the additional butterfly.  I layered my sentiment to give it a nice backdrop. I added just a touch of Wink of Stella over the flowers.  Everything was placed on a card base with a little bit of light yellow stenciling and a few stripes of matching green card stock to partially frame out my image.






You can really see the shadowed die cutting and the shimmer on my card in this picture.



Have a great day everyone. Don't forget...make sure to comment for your chance to win!  See you guys back here soon!

Geometric Stars By My Favorite Things

Hey peeps.  Happy Monday.  I'm back with a quick card and tutorial using the Geometric Stars stencil by My Favorite Things.  This stencil is part of their June release and I'm so excited to have it in my little hands.  I'm pairing this stencil with the Martini Time stamp set as well from My Favorite Things.

I used peacock feathers and cracked pistachio distress oxide inks today to make my card.  I love the blue green color combo.  I'm going to be making more cards with this stencil so I'll be looking forward to using pinks and purples and also some gray color combos as well.





For the martini glass I heat embossed the image with InkOn3 juicy ink and Rangers Princess Gold embossing power.  LOVE this retro martini glasses.  You get a great variety of glasses in this stamp set as well.



Here's a quick tutorial.  You can watch it here or over at my Youtube channel mzdanajoy.  I've used affiliate links for your convenience at no cost to you.

Honeybee Stamps Shine On - Well Is There Any Other Way?

Hey peeps.  I've missed everyone.  My hubby and I are back from our anniversary cruise and I'm still in vacation mode.  Well my body is.  Once I got off the ship I started to have vertigo issues.  I felt like I was still on the water just rocking away to the feel of the ocean...ON LAND!! 😩 I don't remember experiencing that the last time I was on a ship but this time boy oh boy!!!  Let's just say walking around and sleeping have been tough.  Anyway, I'm getting back to my crafty self and wanted to share a few quick cards with you today. I'm made some cards using the Honeybee Stamps Shine On stamp set.  I mean is there any other way to sparkle and shine without a good manicure?  😂

I used some of the InkOn3 fade out ink to do some watercoloring on some of the nail polish bottles and I also used the images with some beautiful flowers from Altenew to do some no-line coloring as well.  And for my last card I stamped it out and colored it with Copic markers and did a really cute background for me card.








As you can tell I'm pretty obsessed with this stamp set.  I've seen so many cards using this stamp set and matching dies.  Just awesome.  I also purchased the large nail polish bottle die and you'll see a card with that one soon.  Okay that's it for today.  I need to get my butt in gear and crank out more cards and a few videos.  Hugs to you guys and I'll see you soon!  ❤️
