Hi all! Last week I received a package filled with Tonic goodies. Lots of fun stuff including the Nuvo Embellishment Mousse. There are so many options with this product. In this video I’m showing you how to create a pearlescent ombr√© background with a stencil. I’ll be showing more techniques in upcoming videos. ūüėÄ

The Embellishment Mousse is very thick. At first it may seem impossible to use with stencils. However, the more you work with it, the more it spreads nicely. I used an old daisy stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop. However, the Bold Daisy stencil from Hero Arts would be a great alternative! You can also rub the products directly onto paper using your finger. Or if you add water to it, it can be used as paint since it’s water based.

It leaves a beautiful pearlescent metallic finish which I think is fantastic. ūüíõ¬†In total there are 24 colors. I got 6 of the softer, pastel colors. I used Peony Pink, Coral Calypso, Lemon Sorbet, Spring Green, Aquamarine and Lilac Lavender. These are perfect for Spring themed cards, don’t you think?

I colored one of the bunny images of the Honey Bunny Boo set from Heffy Doodle. I stamped little butterflies around the bunnies with The Ton’s Couture Color Ink. This is my favorite ink because it comes in so many colors and because they give a solid impression every single time. Finally, I finished off my card with Nuvo’s Shimmer Pen and a coat of Crystal Glaze.

Hello, everybody! How are you doing? Do you have any plans for the upcoming Easter festivities? I plan on eating some delicious Easter eggs and relax at home.

Today I have been playing with both the Beautiful Butterflies 1 stamp set from The Ton as well as the new Marvelous Perfumes stamp set. I thought it would be nice to combine these two sets to create a super feminine and classy card. I was inspired by various perfume ads to create and stamp this design.

I started out by stamping the perfume bottle with Memento Tuxedo Black ink using My Sweet Petunia’s mini MISTI. Then, I stamped the smallest butterflies from the Beautiful Butterflies 1 stamp set from The Ton with four different ink pads: Soft Garnet, Rose¬†Quartz, Peach Blossom and Vanilla Frosted Cupcake.

I colored the perfume bottle with Y000 and Y02. For the peachy detail I used Y21 and YR21. I also used N0 and the Colorless Blender to add some slight shading under the perfume bottle for extra dimension. I added Clear Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents for some extra sparkle!

I finished off this classy design with pretty sequins from the Coral Necklace Couture Mix from The Ton. I mixed it with some Lemon Chiffon sequins for extra contrast.

That’s it for now! Thanks for stopping by. Have a nice Easter weekend and enjoy the chocolate! Xo

Hey, everybody! It’s been over a month since I shared a card and a video. I just finished another internship at a kindergarten and it’s been really great but also a lot of work. That’s why I haven’t been able to share anything for so long. However, today I’m back with a new card and video featuring some adorable Winnie & Walter stamps and coordinating dies.

I started out by die cutting and coloring a banner from the Framed stamp set from Winnie & Walter. I colored it with my favorite teal Copic marker combo: BG11, BG13 and BG. Next, I die cut and colored two adorable critters from the Welcome to the Family stamp set.

It’s been a while since I used patterned paper so I decided to have some fun with it and mix different patterns together for a fun and playful look! I used both the Everyday collection and the Sorbet collection from Avery Elle. I just love those green stripes the and yellow plaid together. It really brightens up the card!

For the sentiment I used both the stamps and the dies from the Sketchy Thoughts set from Winnie & Walter. I heat embossed the sentiment on there with clear embossing powder. To finish off, I adhered a cute piece of patterned paper and some sequins from¬†Little Things from Lucy’s Cards.

That’s it for now! ūüôā Thanks for being here and for your outgoing support. I appreciate it. Big hugs! xo
