Today I have a project to share with you using a *genius* idea from Jody. I used the Gears Stencil, inked it up with Sweet Tooth pigment ink, placed a piece of card stock on top, and then ran it through my die-cutting machine to transfer the ink. GENIUS I tell you. I LOVE how it turned out! To get the metallic look for the gears and clock hands of the clock, I taped a sheet of sturdy aluminum foil to a piece of card stock and then die-cut it. Does it have the same look of an expensive metallic piece? No. Is it cool as heck and affordable? YES! I will definitely keep playing around with the technique, and when I perfect it, I will post a video. AugTT_Timeless For more chills and thrills check out the MFT designers’ spooky creations.

I combined Cooper Alphabet and Plaid Background Builder to create this super simple card.  I first stamped the plaid strip in Sweet Tooth pigment ink, and then stamped over most of the line (but not all) with our premium dye inks.  The cool thing about stamping with the pigment ink first is that it lays a nice foundation which the dye ink can grab onto, so the overall color is much more vibrant than it would be otherwise.  Now hurry on over to our amazing Designer’s blogs and see what they have in store!

I decided to explore our new Sweet Tooth pigment ink and tried my hand at watercoloring the image onto Kraft Card Stock. LOVE.
