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!

Happy Saturday, friends! Today I’m super excited because I’m joining Cloud9 Crafts to celebrate their First Anniversary! Yay! 😄 To celebrate, I’m hosting a GIVEAWAY! Make sure to keep on reading for more information.

In today’s video, I’m using an oldie but goodie set from Lawn Fawn to create a cute penguin winter wonderland holiday card!

First, I stamped and colored images from the Toboggan Together and Yeti Or Not Set from Lawn Fawn. I used Copic Sketch Markers to color and the coordinating dies to cut the images out.

Next, I used the Stitched Mountain Borders and the Stitched Hillside Borders Die Cuts from Lawn Fawn. I went in with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink to add a little bit of subtle shadows.

Finally, I applied sparkle with a Lawn Fawn Glitter Pen. Of course I also went in with Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze for an extra coat of dimension and shine.

Hi, friends! Today I’m back with another card and video tutorial. This year I’m making Christmas cards way earlier than the past years because I want to make sure I have plenty to send out to family and friends! 😄

In today’s video I’m showing my favorite ways to add sparkle and to embellish cards. What are YOUR favorite ways to do so?

First, I stamped and colored images from the Absotoothly Awesome and Elfish Antics Stamp Sets from Heffy Doodle. I loved combining these two sets together!

I used the Foursquare Backdrop Die from Lawn Fawn and old Let’s Bokeh in the Snow Patterned Paper (discontinued 😓) to create fun little scenes with the colored images. Doesn’t that look adorable?

To add sparkle to my cards, I used a Zig Wink of Stella Glitter Marker and a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. Best combo ever! I also used Silver Crystals Glitter Drops and of course some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and The Ton.

That’s it for now! Thank you so much for stopping by. I’ll see you soon! 😘 xo
