Hello! Today I’m part of the 31 Days of Halloween Spooktacular Video Hop. This is a month-long event of paper crafters sharing a new Halloween themed project on their YouTube Channel and Instagram profile every single day! 😄 Today is day 14 and I’m stoked to be part of it. Make sure to check out the bottom of my blog post for more information on the video hop.

For this special occasion, I decided to make an adorable Halloween card with the Fab-boo-lous Stamp Set from My Favorite Things. It’s an oldie, but goodie! 😍

First, I stamped and colored all of the images with Copic Sketch Markers. I had so much fun coloring these adorable dressed up ghosts. Awww!! Then, I used the Foursquare Backdrop Die from Lawn Fawn to create a frame. I used Faded Jeans and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide Ink to color the squares.

Next, I added sparkly watercolor splatters with Kuretake Gansai Tambi Silver Watercolor Paint and a lot of water. After making sure the Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink was dry, I heat embossed a sentiment with Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder.

To finish off the card, I added shine with my favorite Wink of Stella Glitter Pen and Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. I also used Purple Rain and White Blizzard Glitter Drops. 🎃

Happy Monday, friends! I can’t believe my Summer Break is already halfway! 🙊 Eek! School starts again on September 2nd. I’m a kindergarten teacher, but finding a permanent, full-time job as a kindergarten teacher here in Belgium, can be so difficult. It’s a common issue here. However, I’m not giving up hope and I’m staying POSITIVE! 🍀

Today I’m creating an ocean inspired shaker card with the Sunshine & Friendship Set from My Favorite Things along with their Drink up the Sunshine Set. Make sure to watch the video below for tips and tricks.

First, I stamped, colored and die cut a bunch of images from the Sunshine & Friendship Set from My Favorite Things and the Drink up the Sunshine Set. I used a circle die to create a beautiful tropical foliage frame for my shaker.

For the base of my shaker card, I used two layers of Fun Foam, Tonic Studios Deluxe Adhesive and a sheet of acetate.

I filled up the shaker with a (discontinued) sequin shaker mix from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards. I’m linking to a similar one. 🙂 To finish off the card, I added sparkle with a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen and of course a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze for extra gloss!

That’s it for now. Thank you so much for stopping by! Sending big hugs! 🥰😘

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! 😄

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! 😄

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! 😍
