Hi, friends! Today I’m sharing an adorable pink card featuring the Cutieasaurus set from My Favorite Things.

I started out by creating my own patterned paper in two easy steps! First, I heat embossed the Scattered Hearts Background Stamp from My Favorite Things with Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder from Wow. Next, I added color with Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink. I said it before and I’m going to say it again: these inks have won my heart. They blend so smoothly and are simply a joy to work with. 😍

Then, I cut a piece of Neenah White Card Stock to 4.25″ x 2″ and did some stamping with the Cutieasaurus stamp set from My Favorite Things. I colored the trees, plants and dinosaur using Copic Markers.

For the greeting, I stamped one of the sentiments using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Finally, I added sparkle with a Tonic Nuvo Shimmer Pen and Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. I also applied Tonic Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops.

Hello, friends! Today I’m sharing a card made with Tonic’s 18th Craft Kit called ‘Dream in Color’. With shades of lilac, fuchsia, turquoise and apricot, this kit is simply gorgeous. 😍 For more information about this Tonic Craft Kit, click HERE.

When I first opened this kit, I instantly fell in love with the beautiful papers and intricate die cuts. I decided to use one of the Secret Garden dies and Neenah Solar White card stock to create my own stencil.

The color scheme of this Craft Kit inspired me to create an ombre lilac background. I smeared the Spring Heather ink pad on my craft mat and mixed it with Moonstone Glimmer Paste to create my own color. I applied the Moonstone paste on the top and then used my spatula to create a nice blend between the two colors.

After letting the Glimmer Paste dry overnight, I trimmed down the piece to 4″ by 5 1/4 ” and adhered it on one of the patterned papers from the Dream In Colour 6×6 Paper Pad. Next, I stamped a sentiment from the Secret Garden stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. To finish off this card, I applied Tonic Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops and Nuvo Supernova Dream Drops.

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

Hi, crafty friends! Recently I discovered Hello Sweetums, a small family business based in Australia. I was in awe of their cute and playful designs and had to try out some of these stamps myself. For today’s blog post and video, I decided to play with the Crafty Companions set which is available for pre-order. Estimated shipping date is September 1st.

I colored the paintbrush, bottle of glue and washi tape with Copic Sketch Markers. My two go-to supplies or coloring with these markers are Memento Tuxedo Black ink and Simon Says Stamp 120# Ultra Heavy Weight White Card Stock. It’s seriously a match made in heaven. Something about that card stock makes blending much smoother and easier.

Because I wanted these crafty images to steal the spotlight, I adhered them to a white die cut circle with foam squares. Using a basic geometric shape like a circle or rectangle really makes your stamps pop more! I used the Nestabillities Standard Circles SM Etched Die Cut Set from Spellbinders. This is my go-to circle die cut set since I like the variety of the sizes.

Next, I took a piece of patterned paper and cut it to 2, 1/2 inch wide. To add an extra pop of color, I adhered this piece of paper to Robin’s Blue card stock from Bazzill. Finally, I finished off this card with a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen, a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze and a couple of Tonic Nuvo White Blizzard and Aquatic Mist Glitter Drops.

That’s it for now. Thanks for stopping by. I’ll see you soon. 💛

Hello, friends! Back in July I was contacted by an Australian stamp company called Uniquely Creative. The company offers various kits for crafters who enjoy scrapbooking and card making. However, lots of stamp sets and die sets are also individually available for purchase. I decided to play with the Flying By stamp set and do some masking to create a clean and simple card. 🙃

This card came together quickly! I did lots of stamping and masking. When masking, remember to stamp the images you want to be on the front first. You can also easily stamp your images all at once with the MISTI. However, a regular acrylic block would work, as well! 😊

Clean and Simple Masking Feat. Uniquely Creative

It’s been a while since I used sparkly embossing powder so I decided to add a pop of gold using the Metallic Gold Sparkle Embossing Glitter from WOW. I paired it up with black ink for a clean and crisp look.

To finish off this card, I added some shine with a Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen and a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. Finally, I applied Tonic Nuvo Drops. I love them! These look and dry like enamel dots, but it’s so much easier since you can pick the size of the drop yourself. đŸ’«

That’s it for now. Thanks so much for flying (😉) by, my friends! 💛
