Hello, friends! I’m happy to be back with another card and video, oh and… a giveaway! Just keep on reading until the bottom of this blog post and watch my video to catch all the details. 🍀

In today’s video, I’m showing you how to create a Halloween shaker card featuring a bunch of My Favorite Things goodies. Don’t you just love these very spooky (😉) woodland critters dressed up in their costumes? They are sooooo sweet. 🧡🎃

First, I stamped and colored three of the animals from the Frightfully Sweet stamp set from My Favorite Things. Next, I created a Halloween inspired blended background with Distress Oxide inks. I used Wilted Violet, Faded Jeans, Twisted Citron and Carved Pumpkin. When I first started blending I had some trouble to get a nice and clean blend between Faded Jeans and Twisted Citron. The key to a good blended background using any color is to make sure your blending foam is saturated with ink and to never give up, lol. Just keep on blending. Finally, I stamped trees and leaves from the Modern Trees set with Archival Jet Black Ink.

After finishing my blended background, I used the Large Rectangle Shaker Window & Frame die cut from My Favorite Things. This set is designed to fit their Large Rectangle Shaker Pouches, but you can also use them without these! I simply adhered a piece of acetate to the back of my panel and then created a frame with Fun Foam. To fill up my shaker, I created a custom shaker mix with several Pretty Pink Posh sequins. To finish off my shaker, I die cut the frame from the Large Rectangle Shaker Window & Frame set and colored it with Wilted Violet and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink.

To finish off the card, I created an embossed sentiment v- shaped banner. Of course I also added some sparkle to the images with a sparkle pen and a bit of dimension using Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. 💫

Happy Sunday, friends. 💛 On Friday I celebrated my 21st birthday and now I’m enjoying a week off school before kicking off my internship at kindergarten. Last week I got to meet the kids and they’re all such sweethearts. I can’t wait to teach them new things!

Since I have some time off, I finally got around to making a card with the Honey Bunny Boo set from Heffy Doodle. Fun fact: I thought this set was named Honey Boo Boo. 😂 Sometimes I read too fast. I paired up this stamp set with hexagon dies and bright patterned paper.

Make sure to watch the video tutorial below. Check the supply list at the end of this blog post for links to all the products I used to make this card.

I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto white card stock before coloring them with Copic markers. I used bright pink, yellow and green colors. I’m thinking about expanding my Copic marker collection a bit so I’m doing lots of research.

Hexagons and Easter Bunnies with Heffy Doodle Stamps

These bunnies are so adorable. I wanted to color their fur in white so I just used a Colorless Blender and the N0 Sketch Marker. That does the trick. It adds just the right amount of shading.

Using patterned paper can be tricky for me, but when I have the right dies it’s easy peasy lemon squeezy. 🍋 I used the Sorbet Collection paper pad from Avery Elle along with the Josephine dies from Winnie & Walter. By the way, I die cut the medium sized hexagon shape both out of white card stock as well as the patterned paper.

Finally, I put all the pieces together with my new favorite glue and foam squares. Oh and I also added some finishing shimmer with the Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen and a coat of Clear Glaze from Tonic.

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

Hi, friends! Welcome back to a new blog post. It’s been way too long, but I promise I will make it up to you as soon as I’m done with college. Today I’m joining Taheerah for her Advent Calendar Extravaganza since Christmas is just around the corner. How fun!

Advent Calendar Extravaganza is -the- festive event of the season! This ‘hop with a twist’ was dreamed up by Taheerah Atchia and features surprise destinations each day! Joining in the fun with Taheerah are ONE HUNDRED special guests – each serving up some fantastic Christmas inspiration! Just like an Advent Calendar, you’ll never know where you’re going to be visiting next until you ‘open the door’!

And that’s not all! With 25 *amazing* sponsors taking part as guests as well, your crafty wish list is bound to get a boost with a chance to win a prize EVERY SINGLE DAY!!

Join in the fun every day at taheerah-atchia.com to see what special surprises await behind the door!

For my project, I’m featuring festive products from Sunny Studio Stamps. I made an interactive slider card that I think you will love! Unfortunately, I don’t have a video tutorial this time. I made this card in bits and pieces in between studying and working on college assignments. So next time I’ll have a video for you! 🙂

I started out by masking off a snow hill with masking paper. Then I used Tumbled Glass ( HLM | AMZUS | ELH | SSS ), Broken China ( HLM | AMZUS | ELH | SSS )and Faded Jeans Distres Ink ( HLM | AMZUS | ELH | SSS ) to create a winter sky. To add some texture, I used Texture Paste  HLM | AMZUS | AMZUS | ELH ) and a stencil for a snow effect. I sprinkled on some glitter from Tonic ( HLM | AMZUS | SSS ). I’m in love with this glitter! It’s so sparkly and has a very fine texture. However, it’s SUPER messy and it gets everywhere. But it’s really worth it.

After creating my circle base, I stamped a cute penguin from the Snow Kissed stamp set from Sunny Studio Stamps ( HLM | SNN | SSS ). I colored this little guy with Copic markers and then used the coordinating die to cut him out. Next it was time to create my slider piece! I used the Slider dies from Lawn Fawn ( HLM | SSS | ELH | AMZUS ) for that. Finally, I used a sparkle pen from Spectrum Noir ( HLM | AMZUS | ELH | SSS ) and the Clear Glaze from Tonic ( TNCUK | AMZUS | SSS ). You know how much I like to finish a card with some shimmer and shine! 🙂

Happy Saturday, friends! Today I’m part of Heffy Doodle’s blog hop in honor of their brand new Winter release. This new release is simply adorable and I think you’ll love this products as much as I do.

In this video, I’m showcasing the new Elfish Antics set ( HFF | SSS ) to make an elf-tasctic – lol, sequin shaker card! 🙂

I had a lot of fun making this sequin shaker! I created my own patterned paper with the Peppermint Zone stencil from Winnie & Walter ( WNN ) and Festive Berries Distress Ink ( ELH | AMZUS | SSS ). These inks blend like butter! Because I haven’t used them in a while, I really noticed how amazing these inks are. 🙂

I colored the sweet elf from the Elfish Antics set from Heffy Doodle ( HFF | SSS ). I used Copic Markers to color the image. I mentioned all of the colors in my video. This time I didn’t link to each marker since that’s very time-consuming and since I don’t have a lot of time nowadays, I couldn’t do that. 🙂 I hope that’s okay!

I filled up my sequin shaker with a variety of sequins from The Ton. That’s my favorite part of making a shaker! Picking different colors and shapes of sequins. So much fun.

BLOG HOP

Like I mentioned before, this blog post is part of the Heffy Doodle Winter Release Blog Hop. In total there are 13 talented ladies showcasing their cards made with the new release. Here’s a list of hoppers. Enjoy the hop!

GIVEAWAY

What would a blog hop be without a giveaway, right? One random winner will be selected to win a $25 gift certificate and free shipping to the Heffy Doodle store. Comments must be left by 11:59 PM PST on 11/7/2017. Winners will be announced on the Heffy Doodle blog. Good luck!
