Hi all! Last week I received a package filled with Tonic goodies. Lots of fun stuff including the Nuvo Embellishment Mousse. There are so many options with this product. In this video I’m showing you how to create a pearlescent ombré background with a stencil. I’ll be showing more techniques in upcoming videos. 😀

The Embellishment Mousse is very thick. At first it may seem impossible to use with stencils. However, the more you work with it, the more it spreads nicely. I used an old daisy stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop. However, the Bold Daisy stencil from Hero Arts would be a great alternative! You can also rub the products directly onto paper using your finger. Or if you add water to it, it can be used as paint since it’s water based.

It leaves a beautiful pearlescent metallic finish which I think is fantastic. 💛 In total there are 24 colors. I got 6 of the softer, pastel colors. I used Peony Pink, Coral Calypso, Lemon Sorbet, Spring Green, Aquamarine and Lilac Lavender. These are perfect for Spring themed cards, don’t you think?

I colored one of the bunny images of the Honey Bunny Boo set from Heffy Doodle. I stamped little butterflies around the bunnies with The Ton’s Couture Color Ink. This is my favorite ink because it comes in so many colors and because they give a solid impression every single time. Finally, I finished off my card with Nuvo’s Shimmer Pen and a coat of Crystal Glaze.

Hi! I’m here with another card and video tutorial. 💛 Today’s blog post is part of Winnie & Walter’s 4th Birthday Bash Blog Hop to Celebrating Love and Friendship. I’m grateful to be part of the Winnie & Walter Design Team. Shay’s kindness warms my heart and of course I’m in love with Winnie & Walter’s product style.

In today’s video I’m showing you how to make a fun love and friendship themed card featuring True Dotty Heart Cutaways and Dog-gone Cute with Evelin T Designs. These two products are part of the brand new February 2018 Release. I also used the Katharine Cutaways. This is an oldie but goodie. One of my favorite die cut sets ever.

I started out by die cutting lots of images. First I die cut the stitched heart out of a scrap of bright green card stock. I die cut the scalloped heart out of white card stock. I love that one! It reminds me of a doily. I pieced both hearts together using my favorite craft glue from Tonic.

For the card base I used Taffy card stock from Bazzill along with patterned paper from Avery Elle. The designs and colors in this paper pad are so much fun. Lots of rainbow colors! 🌈 I’m slowly getting over pastel colors these days. However, they will always hold a special place in my heart.

I did some simple Copic coloring on the dog from the Dog-gone Cute with Evelin T Designs stamp set. I’m not very good at coloring animals so that’s why I like to stick to some neutral grays. I heat embossed the sentiment with WOW! Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder. Finally, I adhered everything together with foam squares and liquid adhesive and I added some sparkle with the Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Shimmer Pen and a coat of Crystal Glaze from Tonic. ✨
