Hello, dear friends. 💛 As promised, I’m back today with two new cards. Same technique and same design, BUT two different color schemes. 😄

In the video I’m showing you how to make masked, ink blended, emboss resist background panels. I used the Marbleize and Bed of Roses stamps from Winnie & Walter. These are 3×4 little background stamps and are perfect to experiment with a bunch of different techniques.

For my ink blended panels, I used Distress Oxide inks. These blend like butter. I’m so amazed at their pigment. So far I have seven colors, but I think I’ll be expanding my collection pretty soon. 😍 These are truly fabulous. For the yellow/green card I used Squeezed Lemonade and Twisted Citron. Combined with the Marbleize stamp, this card looks so modern!

For the flower version of the card, I combined Picked Raspberry with Spiced Marmalade (not *dried* as I said in the video, lol). I used the Bed of Roses stamp for this design. 🌹

After finishing the backgrounds, I colored the pair of dogs from the Dog-gone Cute stamp set from Winnie & Walter. I love that poodle and corgi together. They look so cute! I colored these dogs with Copic Markers. I kept it very simple by only using two markers per color.

I used the Katharine Cutaways die cut set from Winnie & Walter to make sentiment banners. Of course you could just cut these with scissors but I had these dies on hand so it was quick and easy! 😀 I heat embossed the sentiments on the paper banners with Opaque Bright White Super Fine embossing powder from WOW. Finally, I finished off my cards with a coat of sparkle using the Spectrum Noir Shimmer Pen and a layer of Crystal Glaze from Tonic. ✨

That’s it for now. Thanks so much for stopping by. Big hugs. 💕

Hi, all! How are you doing? My Summer Break is nearby and I’m excited. 😄 I can’t believe I’ll finally be graduating as a preschool/kindergarten teacher. I’m already sending out my cover letter to nearby schools. Fingers crossed I can start working as a teacher in september. 🤞🏻🍀

In today’s video I’m showing you how to create an ink blended and stenciled beach scene featuring the Beach Babies set from Sunny Studio. These cute images are so much fun to color. ☀💛

I started out by stamping and coloring some of the images from the Beach Babies set. While coloring I noticed I need to expand my Copic marker collection for more skin tones and hair colors. Do you have any recommendations? After I was done coloring these kids, I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Next, it was time to ink blend the beach scene with Distress Ink and masking paper. I used Tumbled Glass and Broken China for the ocean. For the sand, I used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo. I added more dimension to these pieces with a stencil and brown Copic markers.

Finally, I stamped a sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I curved this clear stamp so it would match the circle shape. To finish this card off, I added a coat of sparkle with the Clear Overlay Spectrum Noir Pen and Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. 💫

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

Hi! I’m here with another card and video tutorial. 💛 Today’s blog post is part of Winnie & Walter’s 4th Birthday Bash Blog Hop to Celebrating Love and Friendship. I’m grateful to be part of the Winnie & Walter Design Team. Shay’s kindness warms my heart and of course I’m in love with Winnie & Walter’s product style.

Winnie & Walter 4th Birthday Bash Blog Hop Celebrating Love and Friendship

In today’s video I’m showing you how to make a fun love and friendship themed card featuring True Dotty Heart Cutaways and Dog-gone Cute with Evelin T Designs. These two products are part of the brand new February 2018 Release. I also used the Katharine Cutaways. This is an oldie but goodie. One of my favorite die cut sets ever.

I started out by die cutting lots of images. First I die cut the stitched heart out of a scrap of bright green card stock. I die cut the scalloped heart out of white card stock. I love that one! It reminds me of a doily. I pieced both hearts together using my favorite craft glue from Tonic.

For the card base I used Taffy card stock from Bazzill along with patterned paper from Avery Elle. The designs and colors in this paper pad are so much fun. Lots of rainbow colors! 🌈 I’m slowly getting over pastel colors these days. However, they will always hold a special place in my heart.

I did some simple Copic coloring on the dog from the Dog-gone Cute with Evelin T Designs stamp set. I’m not very good at coloring animals so that’s why I like to stick to some neutral grays. I heat embossed the sentiment with WOW! Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder. Finally, I adhered everything together with foam squares and liquid adhesive and I added some sparkle with the Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Shimmer Pen and a coat of Crystal Glaze from Tonic. ✨

Hey there, and welcome to The Cutest Video Hop Ever! I am very excited to be joining my friend Emily Leiphart for this fun hop celebrating 5000 subscribers on her YouTube channel but, more importantly, inspiring the next generation of crafters! Emily invited video artists to create a craft video with their kids or have their kids have the spotlight, as well as 2 young crafters (including me) who’ve grown up on YouTube. We hope you have as much fun watching these videos, as much as we enjoyed creating these projects to share with you.

Make sure to read my blog post until the bottom for more information about commenting and giveaways! You can also visit Emily’s blog post for all of the info. Simply click HERE.

In today’s video, I’m stamping a macaron background with the Macarons stamp set from The Ton. To add some cuteness overload, I colored a dog from the Dog Life set from The Ton.

I had so much fun making this card! I must admit that stamping the macaron background was a little bit time consuming but definitely worth it! I used my mini MISTI tool to perfectly line up the layers of the macarons. However, you could also use a regular acrylic block.

For the pink macarons, I layered three colors: Rose Quartz, Soft Garnet and Red Sangria. For the yellow macarons, I layered Vanilla Frosted Cupcake, Beach Blondie and Amber Citrine. For the filling of the macaron, I used the Cocoa bundle from The Ton. You can get all of these inks individually, too!

I decided to adhere a vellum overlay to soften the background out. Since I wanted to put a cute dog on my card, I also die cut a white circle to really make that image pop! For the sentiment, I used Soft Garnet to stamp a label from the Basic Labels set from The Ton. Finally, I finished off my card with a variety of sequins. I used some individual colors as well as flower sequins from mixes. All of the supplies I used are linked below, in case you’re interested. 🙂
