Hello, friends! 💛 Happy New Year! I wish you all the best in 2019: lots of happiness and love, a good health and anything else your heart desires!

Today I’m finally back with a new card and video. I decided to keep it fresh and colorful by stamping a colorful background using the Shirley’s Bloom stamp set from Winnie & Walter.

Using my MISTI, I stamped a floral background with the Shirley’s Bloom stamp set from Winnie & Walter. I used ink pads from various brands. I don’t have a favorite since all of these are quality dye ink pads and stamp smoothly. 😄

Next, I die cut the ‘hooray’ word from the In a Word: Birthday Tiles die cut set from Winnie & Walter. I used Gold Dust glitter card stock from Tonic and added dimension with Fun Foam.

Stamped Floral Background + Vellum Frame

For the frame, I used the die cut three times. I die cut it twice out of French Mints card stock from Bazzill and once out of Fun Foam. I cut a piece of vellum to the same size of the frame so it would match perfectly. Finally, I used Dandelion Yellow Crystal Drops from Tonic to add an extra pop of color.

That’s it for now. Thanks for stopping by. 💌

Hi, friends! 💛 Today I’m a Guest Designer for Craftin Desert Divas. Yay! In this blog post, I’m featuring the super cute Magic Trolls stamp set.

Unfortunately, I don’t have a video for you because I’m sick again. 😔 I went to the doctor three times this week because I have never felt this sick and tired before. I have bronchitis, and a throat and sinus infection. The doctor ordered me to rest so I can fully recover. I can’t go to work until December 17th. 😱

Anyway, back to today’s card! The Magic Trolls stamp set is part of the December 2018 Release from Craftin Desert Divas. This set is just so cute and I had a lot of fun coloring these images.

Magic Trolls (Craftin Desert Divas)

I started out by stamping two of the trolls on Neenah Solar White Card Stock. Then I masked off these images with masking paper and ink blended a background with Distress Oxide Inks. I added some water splatters to add more dimension to the background.

After coloring the trolls, I created a custom made sentiment. I simply opened up Microsoft Word, typed my greeting and printed it on Bazzill Card Shoppe Card Stock. I made this card for my cousin’s baby boy Mattias who will be celebrating his first birthday on December 12. 

To finish off this card, I added some shine with a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Shimmer Pen and a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. I also used Tonic Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops for a bit of glitter! 

That’s it for now. Make sure to visit the Craftin Desert Divas blog for more information about the new release. 😘

Hi friends! It’s Friday and I’m getting ready for a relaxing weekend filled with lots of card making. 😄 Today I’m part of the Heffy Doodle Winter Release Blog Hop. More information about the blog hop and GIVEAWAY can be found below.

In this video I’ll be showing you how to create a green gradient background with Heffy Doodle’s brand new Crosswalk stencil and the super fun Prehistorical Pals set

First, I created a green gradient background with the Crosswalk stencil. I used Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide inks. This time I also added some water splatters. I simply sprayed some water in my hand and flicked it on the paper. Afterwards, I picked up the small puddles of water since I didn’t want to mess my card stock up.

Next, I stamped and colored two images from the Prehistorical Pals stamp set from Heffy Doodle. Isn’t this set simply adorable? I haven’t seen anything like this before! 😍

After die cutting a stitched rectangle from the Metric Stitched Rectangle die cut set, I heat embossed a sentiment with Opaque Bright White embossing powder from WOW. Finally, I assembled everything together and added some shine with a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Pen and a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. I also used Apple Green and Key Lime Tonic Nuvo Drops. Lots of green this time! 💚 That’s it for now. Make sure to read all information about the blog hop for a chance to win a prize!

Hi, friends! I’m so glad to be joining My Favorite Things for their monthly feature called MFT & Friends. The design team and different friends of My Favorite Things will be showcasing the products from the August 2018 Release. I decided to work with the Friendship Rocks set to make a super colorful birthday card! 💛

In my video tutorial I’ll be showing you how to blend a smooth rainbow background with Distress Oxide inks. These inks blend effortlessly. So smooth and clean. 😍 I felt so much joy while I was creating this background. Blending with Distress Oxides has quickly become one of my favorite techniques.

Before ink blending my background, I heat embossed the stars with Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder from WOW! from the Friendship Rocks stamp set from My Favorite Things. Then I colored one of the girls and the mini stage with Copic Sketch Markers. I added sparkle and shine to these images with a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss Pen and a coat of Nuvo Crystal Glaze.

Finally, I finished off the card with Nuvo Drops in matching colors. 🌈 I really like how those White Blizzard Nuvo Drops are transparent and let the Distress Oxides shine through.

Thanks so much for stopping by. 😊 Make sure to visit the MFT blog to see more creations. Big hugs!!!!
