Hello, friends! I’m stoked to be back with a new card making video tutorial. Last week I had a week off work/school (Fall Holiday), but sadly enough I was sick for the entire week. 😔 I was suffering from a sinus infection. Thankfully, I’m finally feeling better and I’m back to card making, blogging and teaching at kindergarten.

In this video I’ll be showing you how to make an ombre sequin shaker and how to create a quick and easy watercolor background with Distress Oxide ink pads.

I started out with a piece of Canson Watercolor paper that I had already cut to 4 1/4 inch x 5 1/2 inch. Using the Trio of Trees stamp set from My Favorite Things, I heat embossed snowflakes all over the paper.

Next, I used Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink to create a blended background. I randomly applied the ink to the card stock and blended everything together. Then, I used a Ranger Mister to spray water all over the card stock. Finally, I applied some water droplets and picked those up with a tissue. I absolutely LOVE how it turned out! ❄️💙

After making sure my Distress Oxide background was dry, I used the Fa La La die for my shaker. I adhered a piece of acetate to the back of the card stock and created a frame for the shaker using Fun Foam and Tonic Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. Next, I filled up the shaker with a bunch of blue and clear sequins. To finish off the card, I embossed a simple sentiment banner. 

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

Hi, friends! 💕 Yesterday, my Seven Hills Crafts order arrived and I went straight to my craft room. I ordered the Deck the Howls set and the Candy Land paper pad from My Favorite Things.

In this video I’m showing you how to make a clean and simple holiday card with clean and simple die cutting and easy Copic coloring. Watch the video below.

The Ho Ho Ho die from MFT inspired me to make a clean and simple holiday card. I was inspired by the Candy Land paper pad to work with a bright, playful and non-traditional color scheme. I mixed a fun piece of patterned paper with Robin’s Egg and Juicy Pear Card Shoppe card stock from Bazzill.

Next I stamped and colored three dogs from the Deck the Howls stamp set from MFT. I enjoyed playing around with different colors and spots! That corgi makes me smile. 😄 So adorable!

I adhered the dies with Tonic Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and foam squares. To finish off the card, I applied a coat of sparkle with the Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen and topped it off with a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. Finally I used Tonic Nuvo Glitter Drops for an extra touch of glitter. ✨

That’s it for now. Thank you for stopping by. See you soon! 😘

Hello, friends! I’m happy to be back with another card and video, oh and… a giveaway! Just keep on reading until the bottom of this blog post and watch my video to catch all the details. 🍀

In today’s video, I’m showing you how to create a Halloween shaker card featuring a bunch of My Favorite Things goodies. Don’t you just love these very spooky (😉) woodland critters dressed up in their costumes? They are sooooo sweet. 🧡🎃

First, I stamped and colored three of the animals from the Frightfully Sweet stamp set from My Favorite Things. Next, I created a Halloween inspired blended background with Distress Oxide inks. I used Wilted Violet, Faded Jeans, Twisted Citron and Carved Pumpkin. When I first started blending I had some trouble to get a nice and clean blend between Faded Jeans and Twisted Citron. The key to a good blended background using any color is to make sure your blending foam is saturated with ink and to never give up, lol. Just keep on blending. Finally, I stamped trees and leaves from the Modern Trees set with Archival Jet Black Ink.

After finishing my blended background, I used the Large Rectangle Shaker Window & Frame die cut from My Favorite Things. This set is designed to fit their Large Rectangle Shaker Pouches, but you can also use them without these! I simply adhered a piece of acetate to the back of my panel and then created a frame with Fun Foam. To fill up my shaker, I created a custom shaker mix with several Pretty Pink Posh sequins. To finish off my shaker, I die cut the frame from the Large Rectangle Shaker Window & Frame set and colored it with Wilted Violet and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink.

To finish off the card, I created an embossed sentiment v- shaped banner. Of course I also added some sparkle to the images with a sparkle pen and a bit of dimension using Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. 💫
