Hello! Today I’m part of the 31 Days of Halloween Spooktacular Video Hop. This is a month-long event of paper crafters sharing a new Halloween themed project on their YouTube Channel and Instagram profile every single day! 😄 Today is day 14 and I’m stoked to be part of it. Make sure to check out the bottom of my blog post for more information on the video hop.

For this special occasion, I decided to make an adorable Halloween card with the Fab-boo-lous Stamp Set from My Favorite Things. It’s an oldie, but goodie! 😍

First, I stamped and colored all of the images with Copic Sketch Markers. I had so much fun coloring these adorable dressed up ghosts. Awww!! Then, I used the Foursquare Backdrop Die from Lawn Fawn to create a frame. I used Faded Jeans and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide Ink to color the squares.

Next, I added sparkly watercolor splatters with Kuretake Gansai Tambi Silver Watercolor Paint and a lot of water. After making sure the Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink was dry, I heat embossed a sentiment with Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder.

To finish off the card, I added shine with my favorite Wink of Stella Glitter Pen and Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. I also used Purple Rain and White Blizzard Glitter Drops. 🎃

Hi, friends! Today I’m sharing an easy and cute Christmas card with a traditional twist and the Oh Kitty Tree Stamp Set from Mama Elephant. I’m also featuring some Dutch die cuts from CarlijnDesign.

Make sure to watch the video below for tips and tricks and a lesson of Dutch. 😜

First, I stamped and colored images from the Oh Kitty Tree Stamp Set from Mama Elephant. I used the coordinating dies to cut out the images. Next, I die cut the Christmas Trees from the Kerstbomen Versieren (translation: decorating Christmas trees) Die Cut Set from CarlijnDesign. I colored the trees with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink.

After decorating the Christmas trees, I created a beautiful Distress Oxide blend using Candied Apple, Abandoned Coral and Picked Raspberry. I decided to add some sparkle using Lawn Fawn Liquid Stardust. Turns out it wasn’t that easy, lol. Watch the video to see what I’m talking about. 😄

For my sentiment, I decided to be a little patriotic and use a Dutch sentiment. The sentiment says: ‘Fijne feestdagen’ and means ‘Happy holidays’.

That’s it for now! Thanks for stopping by. I’ll see you soon. ❤️

Hello and welcome to Justine Hovey’s 50 Cards for 50K Video Hop celebrating 50,000 YouTube Subscribers! This hop is focussed on card making techniques. Over 50 card examples will be shown throughout the hop! Wow! 🤩

I decided to focus on Distress Ink Blending for my video. However, I’m also sharing tips and tricks on Copic Coloring and creating a Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel Card. Make sure to watch the video below for more information! 🙂

First, I stamped and colored images from the Spooky Village and Happy Howloween Stamp Sets from Lawn Fawn. These are such adorable Halloween stamp sets. 🎃

My FAVORITE CARD MAKING TECHNIQUE EVER! (Justine Hovey's 50 Cards for 50K Video Hop)

After creating the card front for my Reveal Wheel, I used Distress Oxide Ink Pads to make stunning gradient backgrounds. In the video, I share which colors I used to make each background.

My FAVORITE CARD MAKING TECHNIQUE EVER! (Justine Hovey's 50 Cards for 50K Video Hop)

There are different mediums to create backgrounds with Distress Ink. In the video I used inexpensive make-up brushes and Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tools. Both work great, but I prefer the make-up brushes because the are a teeny tiny bit easier to work with. 😊

My FAVORITE CARD MAKING TECHNIQUE EVER! (Justine Hovey's 50 Cards for 50K Video Hop)

To add sparkle to a card, I used a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Pen and a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. Finally, I added White Blizzard and Orange Soda Glitter Drops. I loooove the White Blizzard drops so much because they match with every single color!
