Good morning, friends! Today I’m excited and honored to be guest designing for Sunny Studio Stamps. This time I’m featuring the Tiny Dancers set from their newest release to make a cute and girly prima ballerina birthday card. 👯‍♀️

Make sure to watch the video tutorial below. Check the supply list at the end of this blog post for links to all the products I used to make this card.

I had lots of fun coloring these ballerinas. I experimented with different skin tones and hair colors. I’ll be doing some more research on different skin and hair color combinations because I could use some more variety. Make sure to leave your recommendations in the comment section below.

Prima Ballerina Birthday Card Ft. Tiny Dancers from Sunny Studio Stamps

I like when a stamp set comes with smaller designs. These are perfect to make your own background or add a fun little finishing touch to a card. In this case I used the flower to make a background. I colored them to match with the ballerinas. I really love how that turned out.

To fill up the center dot of the flowers I used Nuvo Drops from Tonic. I used Carnation Pink, Caribbean Ocean and Dandelion Yellow to match with the flowers and ballerinas. To add an extra pop of glitter I used Gold Dust glitter card stock from Tonic. It’s the perfect dose of bling-bling. ⭐️ Finally I adhered a small strip of patterned paper and applied Tonic’s Crystal Glaze.

That’s it for now. Make sure to leave your go-to Copic color combinations for skin and hair colors in the comment section. I’d like to hear! Big hugs. 💛

Happy Wednesday, friends! A couple of days ago, I picked up some new Lawn Fawn goodies. I ordered these from Erwtje, a Belgian online shop. The Beam Me Up set inspired me to create a galaxy background. Honestly, I was a bit afraid since I have never tried ink blending a galaxy background. But I think I did pretty well considering this was my first attempt. 🌌

I stamped and colored images from the Beam Me Up set with Copic Markers. These aliens are so much fun, don’t you think? 💜

Galaxy Background with Distress Ink and Tonic Nuvo Drops

These Distress Inks are the perfect combination to ink blend a galaxy background. Just layer all the colors together and keep blending until you’re happy with your result. I flicked some water droplets for some dimension. Then I used the Snowy Backdrop die from Lawn Fawn. As you can see you don’t specially have to use that die for winter themed cards. I filled up the little holes with a variety of Tonic Nuvo Drops. I paper pieced the stars with Black Sapphire Glitter Card Stock from Tonic.

For the black border, I created my own black card stock by ink blending Black Soot Distress Ink. However, this is optional since you could use black card stock and just skip this step. I don’t have a lot of black card stock left so I thought I’d save some by creating my own!

That’s it for now. I had so much fun creating this galaxy card even though it was a bit out of my comfort zone. Thanks for stopping by. Big hugs. 💌

Adding finishing touches to cards with Tonic Nuvo products

Hi, friends. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know I’m a big fan of adding finishing sparkly touches to my cards. Sequins are my favorite embellishments out there since they’re available in many different colors and sizes. However, lately I see so many crafters using – and praising, Nuvo Drops. I purchased a couple of these a while ago and this time I finally got around to using them along with other Tonic products. ⭐️✨

Make sure to watch the video tutorial below. Check the supply list at the end of this blog post for links to all the products I used to make this card.

Patterned paper and punches were the first card making products I ever purchased along with stamps and ink. Because die cuts are more popular than punches lately, I haven’t used my punches in a couple of years. I own a lot of patterned paper but rarely use it. Since I’m still trying to get my creative mojo flowing again, I decided to challenge myself. 💡🤔 Jusin Timberlake has brought sexy back but now I’m bringing punches and patterned paper back. Hahah. 😂 Anyway, I used a Fiskars circle squeeze punch and some pretty patterned paper from Pinkfresh Studio. Don’t you just love the patterned paper I used? It has this collage and airy feel to it which I think is really great.

The Bitty Bears stamp set from My Favorite Things is one of my favorite stamp sets out there. There are so many options with these cute little fellas. I actually colored more bears than just this one. I think I’ll be using those on future cards. To add some dimension to the cupcake I used a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen and a coat of Nuvo Crystal Glaze. I also used Tonic’s Gold Dust glitter card stock to add more interest and sparkle to the sentiment banner. The sparkle on this card stock is so vibrant and the glitter doesn’t rub off. To finish everything off I used Nuvo Drops to ‘pimp’ some clear sequins. This is a fun way to cover up the little hole and to bring your sequins to the next level.

That’s it for now. I hope you enjoyed this card making video. Let me know in the comments if there’s any type of product you haven’t used in a while. Go ahead and set yourself a little challenge. Big hugs! ❤️
