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. 💫

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

Hello everyone! We’re suffering from a heat wave here in Belgium and seeing Sunny Studio’s Fall 2018 Release, makes me long for autumn. 🍁 🍂 I can’t wait for cooler temperatures and overall sweater weather.

In today’s video I’m doing some autumn inspired ink blending using Ripe Persimmon, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber Mini Distress Inks. I’m also pairing the brand new Fall Kiddos and Happy Harvest sets from Sunny Studio. These images are simply adorable and are so much fun to color.

First I masked off a border at the top and bottom of my card. I cut a piece of Heffy Doodle Memo Tape in half. Easy and fast! You could also use masking paper or sticky notes. Whatever works for you! 😀 Then I ink blended a pretty background with Ripe Persimmon, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber Mini Distress Inks.. Like I mentioned in the video, take your time to blend away. Also make sure your blending foam is saturated with ink.

Next I colored images from the Fall Kiddos and Happy Harvest sets from Sunny Studio. I used Copic Sketch Markers. I adore coloring with these markers. In the past I was always scared to color with alcohol markers because it seemed quite intriguing at first. Totally unnecessary because coloring is so relaxing and therapeutic!

After stamping a sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I added a coat of sparkle to the images with a Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen. Out of all the glitter pens I tested, this one is my favorite. It is the sparkliest in my opinion and it looks even better with a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze on top! 💫 To finish off this card, I applied some Tonic Nuvo Drops here and there.

That’s it for now. Thank you so much for stopping by. See you soon! 😘

Happy Monday, friends! When I first started card making, heat embossing was one of the first techniques I learned. For today’s card, I decided to pick out some shades of turquoise glitter embossing powder and make an ombre background. The Basic Backgrounds stamp set from Sunny Studio is a great set to make stunning backgrounds. 💛

I used three different embossing powders from Wow! Embossing Powder: Atlantic Seaspray, Under the Sea and Long Island Teal. All of these powders have a beautiful gold glitter. 😍 Sadly enough, I wasn’t able to catch the gorgeous sparkle on camera but I guarantee you… it’s so pretty in real life.

I colored some images from the adorable Beach Babies set from Sunny Studio. I really like how the hair turned out! Like I mentioned in the video, I learned a lot from the free Markers 101 coloring class from Kit and Clowder. I recommend checking it out since it’s FREE! 🌈

Ombre Heat Embossing Ft. WOW! Embossing Powder

To finish off the card, I used Tonic Nuvo Drops. Honestly, I’ve had these for a while but I’ve always been too scared to actually use them! Because once you apply the product to your card, it’s there to stay – LOL! 😄 However, I got over the fear and just started to have fun with them. Nowadays, I apply the Nuvo Drops randomly and just stop whenever it feels right.

That’s it for now, my friends. Thanks for stopping by. Sending big, big hugs! 💕

Hi, again! Last week, Kristina Werner shared a video on how to create a super easy shaker card. She uses foam tape, doubles it back on itself and then removes the release paper. This inspired me to create my own blog post on my favorite technique to make sequin shaker cards. 😄

In the video, I’m showing you how to make a clean and simple shaker card with acetate, foam sheets and liquid adhesive.

I don’t have any foam tape so whenever I make a shaker, I like to use Fun Foam. These are white foam sheets that are easy to cut to any shape. You can also use die cuts with it to match the shape of your shaker window. In the past I made shaker cards with foam tape, but the sequins always tended to stick to the edges even though I used kitchen flour or anti-cling powder to take the stickiness away.

No Fuss Shaker Card Feat. Hello Bluebird Stamps

I filled up my shaker with the Belle’s Dress Couture Sequin Mix from The Ton. This mix is just so pretty! I love that shade of yellow and the small gold sequins and teeny tiny flowers are great eye-catchers. To add even more sparkle to this shaker, I also added some Crystal Cloud Circles Confetti from Tonic. 💛

No Fuss Shaker Card Feat. Hello Bluebird Stamps

A couple of weeks ago, I shared a card made with Hello Bluebird stamps. I promised I would share more cards featuring these fun products, so here you go! 😀 I used the McGregor’s Garden set again. That little bunny holding the flower pot makes me so happy. He looks adorable. I also colored two of the small birds to match with the sequin shaker. 🐥

That’s it for now. Thanks so much for stopping by. I’ll see you soon. Big hugs. 💌
