Hello Crafters !
Ryn of Designs by Ryn
is happy to announce that her website has been enhanced and we have Blog Candy
to celebrate ! I hope that you would like to join us for a chance to win.
All stamps by Ryn are made with high quality rubber that are deeply etched and provide a sharp image every time ! I love working with her beautiful hand-drawn designs. The deep etching allows the stamps to be applied to other surfaces besides paper. They work well with other mediums such as clay & fabric. Visit Designs by Ryn's Website

Below are three cards that I created using two of Design by Ryn
stamps. CM-S8 Butterfly Fish & CM-S9 Kelp
which are from her new Sea Creatures
The background for this card was created by blending Smooch Inks. (To create Smooch Backgrounds, start by adding Versa Mark Ink over smooth white card stock. Next add Smooch Ink with a Colorbox applicator & black moldable tip - the applicator cleans up easily with baby wipes)
. I used Banana Custard, Pool & Ocean Smooch Inks.
Next I stamped Kelp with Colorbox Harbor Pigment Ink. I used a small acrylic block and added Gold Lame' Smooch in clumps over the blended inks. It looks like coral in spots. I also stamped Kelp with Gold Lame Smooch which resulted in a neat gold texture which you can see this at the top of the background.
I stamped Buttefly fish and embossed with Gold on Watercolour Paper. I used just one Peach colour Tom Bow marker and blended it lighter in areas, then cut him out and popped him up. I didn't want colour to compete with the background or the detail on the beauty fishie !
The next card was also created with same stamps but with a different technique & colours. I've made so many 'fishie' cards using sea colours it was time for a change !
The background was created with Shabby Shutters and Scattered Straw Distress Inks using the Acrylic Block Technique and then sprayed with Sunshine Glimmermist. Kelp was stamped with Foxglove Memories Pigment Ink.
Butterfly Fish was stamped and embossed with Gold on Watercolour paper and Coloured with Tom Bow Markers.
The spellbinder label from S5-034 set was coloured by blending Scattered Straw and Dusty Concord Distress Inks. The sentiment is from the Impression Obsession set MC183 Angelfish & also embossed in Gold. I also added some Holograph border stickers from Starform & some gold ribbon.
This last card below was created using Smooch Inks (Pool, Ocean & Kiwi) for the background, Kelp was stamped with Colorbox Platinum and again a little gold smooch was added using an acrylic block. The fish was stamped with Harbour Ink and embossed with clear before blending Kiwi Smooch Ink over top. I also added holograph glitter in areas. The ribbon is actually blue & green it's hard to see in the photo.
Thank you for your visits, they are always appreciated & Good Luck in the draw !
