Happy Saturday, everybody! School has started again for everybody here in Belgium, except for college and university students like me! I’ll be going back to college on September 18th, so I thankfully have some relaxing time left!

The Fall/Winter 2017 Release from Lawn Fawn is available for purchase at most online shops, so I thought I’d share a holiday card made with the Beary Happy Holidays set ( ELH | SSS | AMZUS | HLM ). I pre-ordered mine at Erwtje.be which is an online crafty shop in Belgium. I highly recommend checking it out if you’re a local.

I used the Carly Cutaways die cut set from Winnie & Walter ( W&W ) to make a fun Christmas bauble shaped card. You could tie a bow and hang it in your Christmas tree, if you want! I didn’t have any ribbon that matched the colors of my card so I wasn’t able to do that, unfortunately.

I created a fun cool winter night sky with Tumbled Glass ( ELH | AMZUS | SSS ), Broken China ( ELH | AMZUS | SSS ) and Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink ( ELH | AMZUS | SSS ). Lately I’ve been enjoying these inks. I never was really into them – except for watercoloring, but after playing around a bit I decided I want to do more ink blending. I stamped the snowflakes from the Beary Happy Holidays set with white pigment ink. However, it didn’t show up! So I had to improvise a bit by using white embossing powder ( ELH | SSS | WOW ) to heat emboss them and make them pop!

I used fun patterned paper from My Favorite Things ( ELH | SSS ) to add a pop of pattern behind the winter scene. I ¬†finished off the card with some shimmer and shine! I used the Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen ( ELH | SSS | AMZUS ) to add a bit of glitter to the fish and the bucket. It doesn’t show up on the picture, but I can assure you that it’s super sparkly in real life. In my opinion, even sparklier than ZIG’s Clear Wink of Stella pen. ūüôā

That’s it for now! Thanks for joining me today and I’ll see you soon. Xo

Hi, everybody! I’m happy to be back with a new card and video. In today’s video I’m using the So Smooth set from Lawn Fawn. I purchased it a while ago and I was glad to finally be able to use it.

I used the So Smooth set to create a fresh and fruity (or should I say smoothy, lol) birthday card. Don’t you just love those little smiley faces? They add instant cuteness to any image!

I did some quick and easy Copic coloring using two or three Copic markers. Like I mentioned in the video, you don’t need a bunch of markers to color your images! Play around a bit and just use whatever you have on hand!

I sticked to a simple design by adding a pop of color with a strip of patterned paper. For some extra shimmer and shine, I used my Clear Wink of Stella pen, Glossy Accents and some sequins here and there. ūüôā

That’s it for now. Thanks so much for stopping by! Xo

Hi, friends! Welcome to my 10,000 YouTube Subscribers Video Hop. I have been looking forward to this event for over a month now. When I first hit 10,000 YouTube subscribers, I thought I was dreaming. I am so grateful and humbled to have such amazing subscribers like you. In honor to celebrate this milestone, I invited lots of talented designers to make videos for my video hop. I truly look up to these ladies¬†and they never fail to inspire me. On top of that, I reached out to my favorite companies. They have been really generous and offered some really nice giveaways. Isn’t this super exciting?!

Be sure to watch the video or read the bottom of this blog post for more information about the giveaways.

In today’s video, I’ll be showing you how to¬†create a fun fall themed slider card with the Jump For Joy set from Lawn Fawn.

video-hop-full-cardI started out by stamping images from the Jump For Joy set from Lawn Fawn with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on some Copic friendly card stock. After coloring and die cutting the critters, I added color to the leaves in one simple step. This set comes with an outline and a solid leaf. I colored the outline leaf by stamping the solid leaf on top. I used some ink pads from The Ton to ink up each leaf. This ink is simply amazing and can be used for stamping and blending!

I did some masking to create a fun scene. For the pink sky, I used Rose Quartz ink. For the grass, I used Everglade Moss ink. As I mentioned before, these inks from The Ton rock. They can be easily used for ink blending. These blend like butter.

Heat embossing is one of my favorite techniques and pretty powders¬†make it even more fun. For my sentiment, I used Opaque Bright White powder from WOW. This is my favorite white embossing powder ever. I also used some Metallic Gold Rich Sparkle powder to add a gold touch to this project. ūüôā

Like I mentioned in the beginning of this post, I created a slider. To be honest, I didn’t do very well because I totally messed up the steps! In the end, it worked out and it looks cute but I just messed up some of the steps. Before adhering your slider piece (in this case the fall scene) to your notecard, you have to put your penny between these two layers. Otherwise you have to slide your penny in the track and that can easily damage your stamped or colored scene. Be sure to watch THIS video for more info on slider cards. Sorry about messing it up!
