Chocolate AND Everything Is Rosy...Yes Please!

I had my Everything Is Rosy class this weekend.  So of course I had to make a little treat for them!  And of course I had to use the FABULOUS Everything Is Rosy products!  So without further ado...


Colors: Melon Mambo, Night of Navy, Rose Gold
Ink Pads: VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers Shimmery White, Night of Navy
Stamps: Everything Is Rosy
Tools: Heat Tool, Detailed Trio Punch, Story Label Punch, Aqua Painter
Accessories: Whisper White Embossing Powder, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack (Flirty Flamingo), 2018-2020 In Color Mini Binder Clips, 3x6 Gusseted Cello Bags, Everything Is Rosy Product Medley: Rose Gold Shimmer Paint, Printed Die-Cuts,

These are made with the 3x6 Gusseted Cello Bags.  Look how cute from the side.  You can see the paper better.  I lined the bag with the paper to add some fun to the bag:




Totally love these little guys.  The make my heart happy!  And since one makes me so happy...why not show you more?!  πŸ˜€


I have to say...I wasn't sure what kind of tag I was going to make...but I ended up loving it.  I did a watercolor was with the Rose Gold Shimmer Paint that is included in the kit.  TOTALLY stunning!  I just used a pretty dry Aqua Painter and just "washed" it on.  I had it a little wet to help it blend, but definitely not as much as if I was using ink.



One last look at the full tag:


Love the layered pieces and LOVE these pre-printed die-cuts that come in the kit!!!  They made making these tags a total breeze!!!

I hope you enjoy!  This Product Medley is only available this month...or why supplies last!  And I expect it to sell out before May 31st.

Let me know if you have any questions or need help getting your hands on one of these kits!  Thanks so much for visiting!!!

Instagram Tip With Falling Flowers...

I have to say, I am having SUCH a fun time being on Stampin' Up!'s Artisan Design Team this year.  And seeing things like this...well...it just still makes my heart skip a beat:


**I HAVE A TIP UP ON STAMPIN' UP!'s INSTAGRAM PAGE!!!**  Seriously...so much fun!!!  😍 And don't worry...you can follow me on Instagram (@designwithink) but I am also sharing it right here! πŸ˜€ 

I think it is so much fun to add color to paper.  Starting with a white paper and turning it into a work of art...well that is one reason we love papercrafting...right?!  So today I am sharing a fun tip to add color to stamped images that is super easy.  Just use ink and a sponge dauber! 



Colors: Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo, Pineapple Punch, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, Highland Heather, Whisper White
Ink Pads: Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo, Pineapple Punch, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, Highland Heather, VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers Shimmery White, Whisper White, Thick Whisper White, Basic Black, Gold Glimmer Paper
Stamps: Falling Flowers, Well Said
Tools: Big Shot, May Flowers Dies, Well Written Dies, Tin Tile Embossing Folder, Heat Tool, Aqua Painter (for splatter)
Accessories: Whisper White Embossing Powder, Linen Thread, Colored Doilies

I love this card...can I say that?!  It just is one of those that makes my heart happy whenever I look at it!  😍  So let me show you how I did this!

First...just stamp some images and gather some colors that you want to use.  I am using one of my very favorite stamp sets!  It is the Falling Flowers Stamp Set and it is retiring in just a few weeks!  So sad...but there is still time to grab it!  (There are also coordinating dies...called May Flowers...so grab those also!  πŸ˜€) 


Then just dab your sponge dauber into the ink pad to get some ink on it and swirl onto your images:


You can get so much color variation...with just one ink pad! 


Don't worry if it looks messy.  Just die cut these (or fussy cut) and they look amazing! 


Seriously...do you love these flowers as much as I do?!  Hee.  But LOOK at all that color!  I hope you enjoy!  Thank you so much for visiting!   Let me know if you have any questions!!!

Everything Is Rosy...For the Home:

Yes...I LOVE using my stamping supplies for home decor.  So of COURSE I wanted to use the  Everything Is Rosy Product Medley for some!  And if you haven't purchased this amazing kit yet...you are in luck because this fabulous Product Medley isn't quite sold out yet! 

So here is my take on a fun frame using these products:



Colors: Melon Mambo, Lemon Lime Twist, Whisper White
Ink Pads: Melon Mambo, Lemon Lime Twist, VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers Shimmery White, Rose Gold Foil (from Everything is Rosy Product Medley) Everything Is Rosy Designer Paper
Stamps: Everything Is Rosy
Tools: Big Shot, Everything Is Rosy Dies, Stitched Shapes Dies, Heat Tool
Accessories: Whisper White Embossing Powder, Rose Gold Adhesive Backed Mirror Elements, Melon Mambo 1/4" Ruched Ribbon
(both from Everything is Rosy Product Medley)

I just framed the paper and then just added the fun focal point to the glass of the frame.  For the "Lovely You" sentiment...I embossed the whole "Time to celebrate...." in Whisper White Embossing Powder on Basic Black cardstock and then just cut out the "Lovely" and "You" words and just used those. 


I LOVE this layered flower.  I just stamped and die-cut 5 of the flowers.  Then curled the ends with a bone folder.  Then added some other layers to create this beauty. 

Then here is the frame on display...


I hope you enjoy!  Thank you so much for visiting!  Let me know how I can help you!  And feel free to pop on over to my website to get your Everything Is Rosy ordered!!!
