Happy Sunday, friends. 💛 On Friday I celebrated my 21st birthday and now I’m enjoying a week off school before kicking off my internship at kindergarten. Last week I got to meet the kids and they’re all such sweethearts. I can’t wait to teach them new things!

Since I have some time off, I finally got around to making a card with the Honey Bunny Boo set from Heffy Doodle. Fun fact: I thought this set was named Honey Boo Boo. 😂 Sometimes I read too fast. I paired up this stamp set with hexagon dies and bright patterned paper.

Make sure to watch the video tutorial below. Check the supply list at the end of this blog post for links to all the products I used to make this card.

I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto white card stock before coloring them with Copic markers. I used bright pink, yellow and green colors. I’m thinking about expanding my Copic marker collection a bit so I’m doing lots of research.

These bunnies are so adorable. I wanted to color their fur in white so I just used a Colorless Blender and the N0 Sketch Marker. That does the trick. It adds just the right amount of shading.

Using patterned paper can be tricky for me, but when I have the right dies it’s easy peasy lemon squeezy. 🍋 I used the Sorbet Collection paper pad from Avery Elle along with the Josephine dies from Winnie & Walter. By the way, I die cut the medium sized hexagon shape both out of white card stock as well as the patterned paper.

Finally, I put all the pieces together with my new favorite glue and foam squares. Oh and I also added some finishing shimmer with the Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen and a coat of Clear Glaze from Tonic.

That’s it for now. Thanks again for stopping by. I’ll see you soon. Big hugs. 💛

Happy Monday, friends. It definitely is a happy Monday for me since I finished my exams. Can you believe this was the very last time I had exams? I’m so happy and relieved. 😀 Now I have to wait until February 2nd to get my results back. I’m keeping my fingers crossed. 🍀🤞🏻

However, busy times are coming. From mid-February until mid-May I’ll be doing an internship at kindergarten (the 4 and 5 year olds this time) and also an internship at an international school. It’s going to be so much fun. What’s up next? Well, after I finished my internship I’ll officially graduate as a kindergarten teacher. I honestly can’t wait to get to get to work and have my own class.

I’m looking forward to graduating because I can’t wait to have my own class and I’m also looking forward to more crafty time. No more studying and working on assignments. Of course teaching requires a lot of prep work at home but it’ll be less intense as college stuff.

Adding finishing touches to cards with Tonic Nuvo products

Hi, friends. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know I’m a big fan of adding finishing sparkly touches to my cards. Sequins are my favorite embellishments out there since they’re available in many different colors and sizes. However, lately I see so many crafters using – and praising, Nuvo Drops. I purchased a couple of these a while ago and this time I finally got around to using them along with other Tonic products. ⭐️✨

Make sure to watch the video tutorial below. Check the supply list at the end of this blog post for links to all the products I used to make this card.

Patterned paper and punches were the first card making products I ever purchased along with stamps and ink. Because die cuts are more popular than punches lately, I haven’t used my punches in a couple of years. I own a lot of patterned paper but rarely use it. Since I’m still trying to get my creative mojo flowing again, I decided to challenge myself. 💡🤔 Jusin Timberlake has brought sexy back but now I’m bringing punches and patterned paper back. Hahah. 😂 Anyway, I used a Fiskars circle squeeze punch and some pretty patterned paper from Pinkfresh Studio. Don’t you just love the patterned paper I used? It has this collage and airy feel to it which I think is really great.

The Bitty Bears stamp set from My Favorite Things is one of my favorite stamp sets out there. There are so many options with these cute little fellas. I actually colored more bears than just this one. I think I’ll be using those on future cards. To add some dimension to the cupcake I used a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen and a coat of Nuvo Crystal Glaze. I also used Tonic’s Gold Dust glitter card stock to add more interest and sparkle to the sentiment banner. The sparkle on this card stock is so vibrant and the glitter doesn’t rub off. To finish everything off I used Nuvo Drops to ‘pimp’ some clear sequins. This is a fun way to cover up the little hole and to bring your sequins to the next level.

That’s it for now. I hope you enjoyed this card making video. Let me know in the comments if there’s any type of product you haven’t used in a while. Go ahead and set yourself a little challenge. Big hugs! ❤️
