Good morning, friends! ❀️ Most of you already know I’m from Belgium, right? Well, unfortunately it’s not easy for me to find Dutch stamps. Most of those designs aren’t very modern. However, while I was browsing Cloud9 Crafts, I came across CarlijnDesign. I immediately fell head over heels in love with their fun style and high quality products!

In today’s video I’m showing you how to make a fun birthday card with the Kaarsjes Uitblazen (translation: to blow out candles) Stamp Set from CarlijnDesign and the Super Dog Set from My Favorite Things.

First, I created a beautiful cloud background with the Mini Cloud Edges Stencil from My Favorite Things and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink. I love how realistic these clouds look. It almost looks like a photograph! πŸ˜„

Next, I stamped and colored the adorable dog from the Super Dog Stamp Set from My Favorite Things. I also stamped the gefeliciteerd (translation: congratulations) sentiment from the Kaarsjes Uitblazen Stamp Set from CarlijnDesign.

Finally, I heat embossed a sentiment speech bubble with Versamark Ink and White Embossing Powder. To finish off the card, I applied some sparkle with a Spectrum Noir Shimmer Pen and a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze.

Hi friends! Back in 2014 I was a Design Team Member for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog. Unfortunately, I had to step down from the team because I had a hard time combining card making with school. So when dear Lols invited me to be their Designer in the Spotlight for March 2019, I said YES! πŸ˜„

Are you ready for a new challenge? I sure am! This week’s challenge is Create a Scene. I decided to create a unicorn shaker card with the Magical Unicorns Stamp Set from My Favorite Things.

Make sure to watch the video below to see how I made this adorable sequin shaker!

First, I created my own patterned paper with the Scattered Hearts Background Stamp from My Favorite Things. I stamped it with my WOW Embossing Pad and sprinkled on Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder. After heat setting the embossing powder, I applied color using Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink.

Next, I stamped and colored a few images from the Magical Unicorns Stamp Set from MFT. I used these images to build my shaker. The sequin shaker was assembled together with a piece of acetate and Fun Foam. I like to use Fun Foam and liquid adhesive to create shakers since there are no sticky edges. This time I doubled up the foam in order to give the sequins enough room to SHAKE!

Finally, I added sparkle and gloss with a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen and a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. I simply adore the shimmer! 😍

Happy Saturday, friends. I hope you’re doing well! Unfortunately, I’m not feeling great. I have a massive cold, my throat aches and my legs feel extremely heavy and painful. πŸ˜”πŸ€§ I’m bummed because I was looking forward to going shopping this weekend but I don’t think that’ll happen. Sigh. However, I think I’ll be making some cards instead!

In today’s video I’m creating two birthday cards with the Super Dog Stamp Set from My Favorite Things along with their Radiating Rays Stencil and Distress Oxide Ink.

First, I ink blended two background with the Radiating Rays Stencil from My Favorite Things. I created two different color schemes. For the blue card, I used: Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans and Black Soot. For the pink/purple card, I used: Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet and Black Soot. I went back and forth with the colors to create a nice and effortless blend.

Next, I colored two of the dogs, some stars and lightning bolts from the Super Dog Stamp Set from My Favorite Things. I added sparkle and dimension with a Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen and a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze.

Afterwards, I did some heat embossing for the sentiment pieces. I stamped the images using the WOW! Embossing Pad and then sprinkled on WOW! Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder. To finish off the card, I applied Tonic Nuvo Drops in White Blizzard and Midnight Sky. πŸ’«

Hi, friends! Today I’m sharing an adorable pink card featuring the Cutieasaurus set from My Favorite Things.

I started out by creating my own patterned paper in two easy steps! First, I heat embossed the Scattered Hearts Background Stamp from My Favorite Things with Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder from Wow. Next, I added color with Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink. I said it before and I’m going to say it again: these inks have won my heart. They blend so smoothly and are simply a joy to work with. 😍

Then, I cut a piece of Neenah White Card Stock to 4.25″ x 2″ and did some stamping with the Cutieasaurus stamp set from My Favorite Things. I colored the trees, plants and dinosaur using Copic Markers.
