Hello, friends! Today I’m sharing a card made with Tonic’s 18th Craft Kit called ‘Dream in Color’. With shades of lilac, fuchsia, turquoise and apricot, this kit is simply gorgeous. 😍 For more information about this Tonic Craft Kit, click HERE.

When I first opened this kit, I instantly fell in love with the beautiful papers and intricate die cuts. I decided to use one of the Secret Garden dies and Neenah Solar White card stock to create my own stencil.

DIY Stencil + Ombré Glitter (Tonic Craft Kit Issue 18 - Dream in Color)

The color scheme of this Craft Kit inspired me to create an ombre lilac background. I smeared the Spring Heather ink pad on my craft mat and mixed it with Moonstone Glimmer Paste to create my own color. I applied the Moonstone paste on the top and then used my spatula to create a nice blend between the two colors.

After letting the Glimmer Paste dry overnight, I trimmed down the piece to 4″ by 5 1/4 ” and adhered it on one of the patterned papers from the Dream In Colour 6×6 Paper Pad. Next, I stamped a sentiment from the Secret Garden stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. To finish off this card, I applied Tonic Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops and Nuvo Supernova Dream Drops.

That’s it for now. Thank you so much for stopping by. I’ll see you soon. 💜💌

Hello, friends! 💛 Happy New Year! I wish you all the best in 2019: lots of happiness and love, a good health and anything else your heart desires!

Today I’m finally back with a new card and video. I decided to keep it fresh and colorful by stamping a colorful background using the Shirley’s Bloom stamp set from Winnie & Walter.

Using my MISTI, I stamped a floral background with the Shirley’s Bloom stamp set from Winnie & Walter. I used ink pads from various brands. I don’t have a favorite since all of these are quality dye ink pads and stamp smoothly. 😄

Stamped Floral Background + Vellum Frame

Next, I die cut the ‘hooray’ word from the In a Word: Birthday Tiles die cut set from Winnie & Walter. I used Gold Dust glitter card stock from Tonic and added dimension with Fun Foam.

Stamped Floral Background + Vellum Frame

For the frame, I used the die cut three times. I die cut it twice out of French Mints card stock from Bazzill and once out of Fun Foam. I cut a piece of vellum to the same size of the frame so it would match perfectly. Finally, I used Dandelion Yellow Crystal Drops from Tonic to add an extra pop of color.

That’s it for now. Thanks for stopping by. 💌

Hello, friends. 💛 How are you doing? It’s been a while since I shared a card. Since the beginning of November, I’ve been struggling with my health. I get sinus and throat infections often, but this time I don’t seem to recover. I never felt this tired before. I already had to take lots of medication, but nothing seems to do the trick. I usually feel better for a day or 3 and then I relapse. Tomorrow I’ll be seeing the doctor once again. 😔

On a happier note, it’s the holiday season. Yay! I’m not able to enjoy it as much as I do normally, but I like spending time with my family during these festive days. 🎄

Today I did some purging in my craft room. I hope to be making more cards in 2019. Organizing and selling some older stuff usually does the trick for me. I added some items to my destash page. Feel free to take a look and send me an email if there’s anything you’re interested in. 😄

About a day or two ago, I watched a video from Lindsay the Frugal Crafter where she’s talking about a very interesting topic. I highly recommend watching the video because there’s so much truth in it. Lately I’ve been feeling so overwhelmed in the card making industry. 😔 There are just so many new product releases and lots of fun techniques I would like to try (if we only had the time!). It’s probably because I haven’t been making that much cards lately. I missed out on so much, so I’m slowly trying to catch up with everything.

Thank you for your outgoing support. I hope to be back soon. Happy Holidays! 💛😘

Hi, friends! 💛 Today I’m a Guest Designer for Craftin Desert Divas. Yay! In this blog post, I’m featuring the super cute Magic Trolls stamp set.

Unfortunately, I don’t have a video for you because I’m sick again. 😔 I went to the doctor three times this week because I have never felt this sick and tired before. I have bronchitis, and a throat and sinus infection. The doctor ordered me to rest so I can fully recover. I can’t go to work until December 17th. 😱

Anyway, back to today’s card! The Magic Trolls stamp set is part of the December 2018 Release from Craftin Desert Divas. This set is just so cute and I had a lot of fun coloring these images.

Magic Trolls (Craftin Desert Divas)

I started out by stamping two of the trolls on Neenah Solar White Card Stock. Then I masked off these images with masking paper and ink blended a background with Distress Oxide Inks. I added some water splatters to add more dimension to the background.

Magic Trolls (Craftin Desert Divas)

After coloring the trolls, I created a custom made sentiment. I simply opened up Microsoft Word, typed my greeting and printed it on Bazzill Card Shoppe Card Stock. I made this card for my cousin’s baby boy Mattias who will be celebrating his first birthday on December 12. 

To finish off this card, I added some shine with a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Shimmer Pen and a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. I also used Tonic Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops for a bit of glitter! 

That’s it for now. Make sure to visit the Craftin Desert Divas blog for more information about the new release. 😘
