Hi there! While I was purging my stamp sets, I came across the Follow Your Heart set from Love Cynthia. Oh my goodness, why haven’t I used this stamp set more? It’s simply adorable! 😍

In today’s video I’m showing you how to create an ink blended scene with Distress Oxide Ink for an airbrushed and super smooth effect.

First, I created the masks with masking paper from Simon Says Stamp along with the Grassy Border die from Lawn Fawn. I stamped the little girl from the Follow Your Heart stamp set from Love Cynthia using Archival Jet Black ink. I used that particular ink because it’s smudge and waterproof, which makes it PERFECT for ink blending.

Next, I used Distress Oxide ink pads to do the blending. For the grass I used Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn. I used Faded Jeans, Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass for the sky. After the ink blending was dry, I stamped a sentiment with Versmark ink and applied clear embossing powder.

To finish off the blended scene, I applied Tonic Nuvo Drops in Grey Mist and White Blizzard. I also used a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen and Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze to add extra shine and dimension to the images. 💫💛

Happy Saturday, friends! Do you have any fun things planned for the weekend? Everybody has gone back to school here, except for college and university students (yay!). My video hop is also coming closer and closer. Just two more days. I’m so excited and I cannot wait to hear your thoughts.

In this week’s Saturday Stamp Day video, I’m stamping and coloring a cute scene with a new to me company – Love Cynthia. These stamps are designed and France and produced in the United Kingdom for best quality product. In the video, I’m using the adorable Follow Your Heart set. Did you know I discovered this company through my sweet and talented friend Amy Lee aka The Craft Bunny?

Lately I’ve been focussing on the clean and simple card making style. I still find it quite hard to leave lots of white space on cards, but I think I did pretty good, right?

I’m not sure why the white embossed sentiment is barely visible on the photo. Sorry about that.

IMG_1466I started out by stamping and coloring one of the girls from the Follow Your Heart stamp set. I focussed on my coloring technique. Coloring the hair is probably one of the hardest things! However, with feathering motions and by using three colors, it was a pretty easy job!

IMG_1469I created a fun focal point with the Tag Buddies dies from CAS-Ual Fridays and some leftover patterned paper. Since the card was a little bit plain like that, I stamped the two cupcakes randomly on some white card stock. After coloring these cupcakes, it was time to make a sentiment banner. I scribbled the BG11 Copic Marker on some white card stock and heat embossed a sentiment with Opaque Bright White embossing powder from WOW. Finally, I assembled everything together and finished off with a bit of sparkle and shine here and there.


My blog is acting weird lately. I’m receiving errors non-stop and sometimes I’m unable to access my blog for hours. If you are experiencing the same error and can’t access my blog, know that I’m aware of this issue. I’m working hard behind the scenes to get it fixed as soon as possible. 🙂


Remember, my 10,000 YouTube Subscribers Video Hop will take place on Monday, September 5th at 3 p.m. Standard European Summer Time. If my blog would be acting up, don’t worry because I covered all of the details in my video. See you then. Love you! Xo
