Hi crafty friends! This month I am the Designer in the Spotlight at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog. Yay! 😄

Are you ready for a new challenge? I sure am! This week’s challenge is Whatever the Weather. I decided to create a cute ballerina card inspired by the sunny weather. For this card, I used the Tiny Dancers and Background Basics Stamp Sets from Sunny Studio. ☀️

Make sure to watch the video below to see how I made this cute ballerina card!

First, I die cut a circle out of Neenah Solar White and Simon Says Stamp Masking Paper Sheets. Then, I created my masks and ink blended the grass (Mowed Lawn) and sky (Tumbled Glass). For the polkadots I used the Background Basics Stamp Set and WOW! Clear Gloss Embossing Powder.

Next, I colored a few images from the Tiny Dancers Stamp Set from Sunny Studio. I love these adorable ballerinas and I had a hard time picking out one. 😊

To finish off the card, I created a sentiment banner with vellum and gold glitter card stock. I also added shine and sparkle with a Clear Gloss Sparkle Pen from Spectrum Noir and Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. Finally, I applied Tonic Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops.

That’s it for now. Thanks for stopping by. Sending big crafty hugs to all of you! 💛

Hello everyone! We’re suffering from a heat wave here in Belgium and seeing Sunny Studio’s Fall 2018 Release, makes me long for autumn. 🍁 🍂 I can’t wait for cooler temperatures and overall sweater weather.

In today’s video I’m doing some autumn inspired ink blending using Ripe Persimmon, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber Mini Distress Inks. I’m also pairing the brand new Fall Kiddos and Happy Harvest sets from Sunny Studio. These images are simply adorable and are so much fun to color.

First I masked off a border at the top and bottom of my card. I cut a piece of Heffy Doodle Memo Tape in half. Easy and fast! You could also use masking paper or sticky notes. Whatever works for you! 😀 Then I ink blended a pretty background with Ripe Persimmon, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber Mini Distress Inks.. Like I mentioned in the video, take your time to blend away. Also make sure your blending foam is saturated with ink.

Next I colored images from the Fall Kiddos and Happy Harvest sets from Sunny Studio. I used Copic Sketch Markers. I adore coloring with these markers. In the past I was always scared to color with alcohol markers because it seemed quite intriguing at first. Totally unnecessary because coloring is so relaxing and therapeutic!

After stamping a sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I added a coat of sparkle to the images with a Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen. Out of all the glitter pens I tested, this one is my favorite. It is the sparkliest in my opinion and it looks even better with a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze on top! 💫 To finish off this card, I applied some Tonic Nuvo Drops here and there.

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

Happy Monday, friends! When I first started card making, heat embossing was one of the first techniques I learned. For today’s card, I decided to pick out some shades of turquoise glitter embossing powder and make an ombre background. The Basic Backgrounds stamp set from Sunny Studio is a great set to make stunning backgrounds. 💛

I used three different embossing powders from Wow! Embossing Powder: Atlantic Seaspray, Under the Sea and Long Island Teal. All of these powders have a beautiful gold glitter. 😍 Sadly enough, I wasn’t able to catch the gorgeous sparkle on camera but I guarantee you… it’s so pretty in real life.

I colored some images from the adorable Beach Babies set from Sunny Studio. I really like how the hair turned out! Like I mentioned in the video, I learned a lot from the free Markers 101 coloring class from Kit and Clowder. I recommend checking it out since it’s FREE! 🌈

To finish off the card, I used Tonic Nuvo Drops. Honestly, I’ve had these for a while but I’ve always been too scared to actually use them! Because once you apply the product to your card, it’s there to stay – LOL! 😄 However, I got over the fear and just started to have fun with them. Nowadays, I apply the Nuvo Drops randomly and just stop whenever it feels right.

That’s it for now, my friends. Thanks for stopping by. Sending big, big hugs! 💕
