Just Buggin challenge 17: inky fingers & tutorial!


everyone back on schedule?  i love holidays but also find it difficult to be off schedule & out of routine.

i have another peek at Pezzy for the holidays for you.  pezzy begged for a gingerbread house this year as soon as they appeared in michaels.  the kit is a bit of a rip off – a few pieces of gingerbread & candy with a big bag of powdered sugar.  so next year i may have to look into baking the *walls* myself but she had fun!

today’s post is exciting for me – not only another project for another SUPERB challenge over at Just Buggin but i finally made another couple video tutorials!!

blog tag

Challenge 17 from our wonderful leader Samantha over at Just Buggin is Inky Fingers.  the girls all did wonderful projects so i sure hope you check out the challenge blog and the other members of the team.  My project is two little tags i did:

all pieces were cut on my cricut – shadow piece and two pieces for each tag base, snowflakes & little snow friends.  for each tag i cut the top piece with decorative scissors or edge punches to create fun layers.  every layer is puton with foam tape to give lots of depth and dimension.  the snowflakes have glittered crystal skittles in the centers.

I inked all of my edges with white.  i thought for these in particular white or lighter was better than the usual darker inking.  it adds to the *frosty* look of the scenes i think.  after inking well onto the pieces i added thin lines of crystal stickles & i also stamped white snowflakes across all of my die cuts.  the snowman’s face is a peachy keen stamp of course – kathy is fabulous over there!

and now VIDEOS!!  i will admit they are a little rough.  i have still not gotten a good method down for filming OR for making sure i stay within the fraame.  i was also working with new editing software but here they are – two new additions to the Stamping Basics Series:

These supplies for inking are available in my online store – Pezadoodle Designs and are ranger products – ink blending tool, foam ink blending replacements and non stick craft sheet.  See THIS POST for answers to some of the questions i have been asked…

i hope you found these useful – if you DID spur me on!!!  leave me a comment!  tutorials are extremely time consuming.  i love to do them but i need to know if it is worth it TO YOU for me to do more.  keep an eye out HERE for more info on future tutorials designed BY YOU!  a format change for the new year that i have in mind…….

  3. Hi,

    I love your video tutorial on inking edges! I am a new scrapper and want to start using inking on my edges for my layouts. Can you email me a list of the basic tools I need to get started? such as the tool, foam and colors/ink brands to start with. Also, what surface are you using to ink on? it looks glass or acrylic. I know I would need something like that.
