Hi again! Welcome to my second blog post of today. I’m joining Winnie & Walter for a fun blog hop in honor of World Card Making Day 2017. There are lots of festivities going on at the Winnie & Walter blog so make sure to check that out. If you’re hopping from blog to blog, you probably arrived from Rebecca Luminarias’ blog!

In this video, I’m showing you how to create a masked and watercolored winter scene with the Happy Owlidays with Evelin T Designs set from Winnie & Walter ( ELH | SSS | WNN ).

I started out by stamping and masking my tree scene. Whenever you’re masking, keep in mind that you have to stamp the image you want to be in front first. In my case, that was the biggest tree. Then you can use masks to build your scene. Watch the video to see it in action!

I colored the trees and the adorable trio of penguins with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a Pentel Aquash Brush. I like to use Canson Watercolor paper ( ELH | AMZUS | SSS ) and Archival Jet Black ink ( ELH | SSS | AMZUS ) whenever I use these markers to color. After coloring all of the images, I created a watercolored winter sky with the Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor set ( ELH | SSS | AMZUS ). I have links to the individual colors I used in the supply list below.

Once my watercolored piece was dry, I ran it through my die cutting machine using the Carly Cutaways from Winnie & Walter ( WNN ) to create a fun Christmas bauble shaped piece. Then I used a mask and Tonic Nuvo Shimmer Paste in Moonstone ( ELH | SSS | AMZUS | TNCUK ) to create pretty and glittery snow. Finally, I added more sparkle with a Spectrum Noir Shimmer Pen ( ELH | SSS | AMZUS ) and Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze ( SSS | AMZUS | TNCUK ).

Happy Saturday, everybody! School has started again for everybody here in Belgium, except for college and university students like me! I’ll be going back to college on September 18th, so I thankfully have some relaxing time left!

The Fall/Winter 2017 Release from Lawn Fawn is available for purchase at most online shops, so I thought I’d share a holiday card made with the Beary Happy Holidays set ( ELH | SSS | AMZUS | HLM ). I pre-ordered mine at Erwtje.be which is an online crafty shop in Belgium. I highly recommend checking it out if you’re a local.

I used the Carly Cutaways die cut set from Winnie & Walter ( W&W ) to make a fun Christmas bauble shaped card. You could tie a bow and hang it in your Christmas tree, if you want! I didn’t have any ribbon that matched the colors of my card so I wasn’t able to do that, unfortunately.

I created a fun cool winter night sky with Tumbled Glass ( ELH | AMZUS | SSS ), Broken China ( ELH | AMZUS | SSS ) and Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink ( ELH | AMZUS | SSS ). Lately I’ve been enjoying these inks. I never was really into them – except for watercoloring, but after playing around a bit I decided I want to do more ink blending. I stamped the snowflakes from the Beary Happy Holidays set with white pigment ink. However, it didn’t show up! So I had to improvise a bit by using white embossing powder ( ELH | SSS | WOW ) to heat emboss them and make them pop!

I used fun patterned paper from My Favorite Things ( ELH | SSS ) to add a pop of pattern behind the winter scene. I  finished off the card with some shimmer and shine! I used the Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen ( ELH | SSS | AMZUS ) to add a bit of glitter to the fish and the bucket. It doesn’t show up on the picture, but I can assure you that it’s super sparkly in real life. In my opinion, even sparklier than ZIG’s Clear Wink of Stella pen. 🙂

That’s it for now! Thanks for joining me today and I’ll see you soon. Xo
