Hello, friends! Welcome to another card making video tutorial. Today I’m showing you how to do super smooth Distress Oxide Ink Blending with cheap make-up brushes and an adorable stamp set from Unity Stamp Company.

First, I stamped the adorable cake image from the Happy Birthday Stamp Set from Unity Stamp Company with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I also stamped and heat embossed a speech bubble from the Stackable Cuties Stamp Set from Mama Elephant. I didn’t heat emboss the cake until I finished Copic Coloring since embossing powder damages your alcohol markers. So make sure not to heat emboss your images before coloring them!

After covering up the colored cake with masking paper, I used six colors of Distress Oxide Ink to create a colorful background: Spun Sugar, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass and Shaded Lilac. I also used the Medium Dots Stencil from Simon Says Stamp to add some polkadots to this background using the same colors of Distress Oxide Ink. I just applied them a little bit heavier to create contrast.

The brushes I used to do the ink blending are LIFE CHANGING! 😍 Lately I’ve been seeing these brushes in almost every single card making video tutorial so of course I had to give them a shot. I used super cheap, inexpensive make-up brushes from a Belgian shop called Action. I think I’ll be planning another visit to that shop soon to stock up on even more of these brushes since I love them so much! 😄

Finally, I adhered color coordinated sequins and added sparkly dots with Tonic Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops. I also used a Spectrum Noir Shimmer Pen and a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze for extra shine and dimension.

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

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.

Hi, friends! I hope you all had a wonderful, sunny Easter weekend. 🐣🐰 The past couple of days I’ve made a lot of cards with Tonic’s 21st Craft Kit – Distress Details. Guess what? I didn’t use a single stamp to create all five of these!

Make sure to watch the video below for lots of tips and tricks. If you’re new to my channel, subscribe and click the bell to receive notifications whenever I upload a new video.

For the first two cards, I used the Distressed Stencil that comes with the kit along with the Boatyard Blue Expanding Mousse and Soft Truffle Embellishment Mousse. Applying these mousses with a Nuvo Blending Sponge is so easy and fun to do!

Next, I decided to get create with some of the dies from the Distressed Edge & Tag Die Cut Set. I made my own stencil with masking paper and added a fun pop of color with the tiny flower dies. To finish off these little flowers, I applied Dirty Bronze Crystal Drops, Belgium Bluestone and Fiery Volcano Stone Drops.

Finally, I made an elegant gold card with the big rose die from the Distressed Edge & Tag Die Cut Set. I used one of the beautiful specialty papers that comes with the kit and combined it with White Blizzard Glitter Drops.

Hi, friends! Today I’m sharing a super fun interactive card featuring the spectacular Magic Picture Changer Die Cut Set from Lawn Fawn along with their Oh Gnome Stamp Set.

Make sure to watch the video below for tips and tricks on how to make a Magic Picture Changer card!

First, I stamped two adorable scenes using the Oh Gnome Stamp Set from Lawn Fawn. I did some creative masking to add dimension. After coloring the images with Copic Sketch Markers, I used the Magic Picture Changer Die Cut Set to create my interactive card.

To decorate the front of my Magic Picture Changer, I used the Magic Picture Changer Add-On Die Cut Set and Spring Fling Patterned Paper. For the sentiment banner, I used the Fancy Wavy Banner Die Cut Set along with the Wavy Sayings Stamp Set.

I used the Stitched Rectangles Die Cut Set from Lawn Fawn to finish off this card. I simply die cut two rectangles: one out of white card stock and one out of patterned paper. Notice that I sticked to the same color scheme/patterns for this entire card! 😄 I like a cohesive look. Hehe!

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