Happy Saturday, friends! I’m sitting here with a big cold – yuck, but there’s something really fun happening today which makes me feel better! A fellow Belgian crafter, Els Brigé, launched her own stamp company called Els Brigé Designs. She released four stamp sets with Dutch sentiments and adorable images. I am thrilled to finally have some pretty Dutch sentiments! That way I can send more cards to my Belgian friends and family.

In today’s Saturday Stamp Day video, I am featuring the brand new Welkom Baby (this means “welcome baby”) stamp set from Els Brigé. The sentiment I used means: “Congratulations on your little miracle.”. Isn’t that sentiment perfect for new parents?

ssd_penguinI started out by stamping the baby sentiment on some pool card stock using Lake Shores ink from Simon Says Stamp for some tone on tone stamping. I absolutely love the font of these sentiments! Els did such a great job designing these stamps. After I stamped the main piece of the card, I die cut a circle to create a sequin shaker. I decided to create another sequin shaker because I love to use the Fuse tool and because you love my shakers, so that makes me very happy! 🙂

ssd_close_upI created my sequin shaker using the Fuse tool from We R Memory Keepers and I also used the Laura’s Dreamy Blues sequin mix from The Ton. This is the mix that I put together! When I was putting together the mix, I was thinking about the beach and the ocean. However, you could use this mix for baby cards, Christmas cards or just everyday cards! Of course this card needed an extra sentiment so I stamped the greeting, which means “Congratulations on your little miracle.”, with some Versamark ink on vellum. Finally, I embossed the greeting with white embossing powder.

That’s it for today! Be sure to check out the Els Brigé Designs blog for more inspiration using these new products. Big congrats, Els! I am over the moon excited for you!

Hello everyone! Happy World Cardmaking Day! I’m back with a brand new Saturday Stamp Day video. In today’s video I’m showing you how to create another sequin shaker card using the Fuse tool along with stamps and sequins from The Ton.

ssd-foxy-shaker-cardEven though it looks like I spent a lot of time on this card, it came together really quickly! The Fuse tool by We R Memory Keepers is absolutely brilliant if you want to create fast and easy shaker cards. I used the tool along with some We R Memory Keepers photo sleeves and sequins from The Ton to create a quick shaker.

ssd-foxy-shaker-card-close-upIt seems like I was the only one in the crafting industry without the ZIG Real Color Brush Markers. A couple of weeks ago, these babies arrived. I ordered about 12 markers and I’m absolutely loving them! I recommend using Bristol and a Pentel Aquash Brush when using these markers. It makes the coloring process so much faster and easier. 🙂

That’s it for now! Thanks so much for being here. I’ll be back soon! See you then! xo
