Hello, friends! I’m happy to be back with another card and video, oh and… a giveaway! Just keep on reading until the bottom of this blog post and watch my video to catch all the details. 🍀

In today’s video, I’m showing you how to create a Halloween shaker card featuring a bunch of My Favorite Things goodies. Don’t you just love these very spooky (😉) woodland critters dressed up in their costumes? They are sooooo sweet. 🧡🎃

First, I stamped and colored three of the animals from the Frightfully Sweet stamp set from My Favorite Things. Next, I created a Halloween inspired blended background with Distress Oxide inks. I used Wilted Violet, Faded Jeans, Twisted Citron and Carved Pumpkin. When I first started blending I had some trouble to get a nice and clean blend between Faded Jeans and Twisted Citron. The key to a good blended background using any color is to make sure your blending foam is saturated with ink and to never give up, lol. Just keep on blending. Finally, I stamped trees and leaves from the Modern Trees set with Archival Jet Black Ink.

After finishing my blended background, I used the Large Rectangle Shaker Window & Frame die cut from My Favorite Things. This set is designed to fit their Large Rectangle Shaker Pouches, but you can also use them without these! I simply adhered a piece of acetate to the back of my panel and then created a frame with Fun Foam. To fill up my shaker, I created a custom shaker mix with several Pretty Pink Posh sequins. To finish off my shaker, I die cut the frame from the Large Rectangle Shaker Window & Frame set and colored it with Wilted Violet and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink.

To finish off the card, I created an embossed sentiment v- shaped banner. Of course I also added some sparkle to the images with a sparkle pen and a bit of dimension using Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. 💫

Hello, friends! Back in July I was contacted by an Australian stamp company called Uniquely Creative. The company offers various kits for crafters who enjoy scrapbooking and card making. However, lots of stamp sets and die sets are also individually available for purchase. I decided to play with the Flying By stamp set and do some masking to create a clean and simple card. 🙃

This card came together quickly! I did lots of stamping and masking. When masking, remember to stamp the images you want to be on the front first. You can also easily stamp your images all at once with the MISTI. However, a regular acrylic block would work, as well! 😊

It’s been a while since I used sparkly embossing powder so I decided to add a pop of gold using the Metallic Gold Sparkle Embossing Glitter from WOW. I paired it up with black ink for a clean and crisp look.

To finish off this card, I added some shine with a Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen and a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. Finally, I applied Tonic Nuvo Drops. I love them! These look and dry like enamel dots, but it’s so much easier since you can pick the size of the drop yourself. 💫

That’s it for now. Thanks so much for flying (😉) by, my friends! 💛

Hi, friends! I’m so glad to be joining My Favorite Things for their monthly feature called MFT & Friends. The design team and different friends of My Favorite Things will be showcasing the products from the August 2018 Release. I decided to work with the Friendship Rocks set to make a super colorful birthday card! 💛

In my video tutorial I’ll be showing you how to blend a smooth rainbow background with Distress Oxide inks. These inks blend effortlessly. So smooth and clean. 😍 I felt so much joy while I was creating this background. Blending with Distress Oxides has quickly become one of my favorite techniques.

Before ink blending my background, I heat embossed the stars with Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder from WOW! from the Friendship Rocks stamp set from My Favorite Things. Then I colored one of the girls and the mini stage with Copic Sketch Markers. I added sparkle and shine to these images with a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss Pen and a coat of Nuvo Crystal Glaze.

Finally, I finished off the card with Nuvo Drops in matching colors. 🌈 I really like how those White Blizzard Nuvo Drops are transparent and let the Distress Oxides shine through.

Thanks so much for stopping by. 😊 Make sure to visit the MFT blog to see more creations. Big hugs!!!!
