Hi, friends! Happy Wednesday. Last week my dad asked me to make a thank you card for one of his colleagues. Uh-oh! 🙊 A masculine card? That’s a challenge for me. However, the Beer stamp set from The Ton made it easy!

Make sure to watch the video tutorial below for tips and tricks.

First, I stamped a beer image on the card front using the Beer stamp set from The Ton. Then I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment using their Roma Alphas stamp set.

Next, I added some black paint splatters. I masked off the beer using Heffy Doodle Low Tack Tape since I only wanted the splatters around the beer. 🍺

Finally, I finished off the card with a couple of sequins here and there. I know, I know. Sequins aren’t exactly something you expect to see on a masculine card, but hey… 😋

That’s it for now! Thanks for stopping by. Sending hugs! Xoxo 💗

Hi, all! Today I’m back with an Underwater Scene Card and I’m also sharing some more tips on Easy Copic Coloring for Beginners. Make sure to check out my Copic Coloring Playlist by clicking HERE.

Watch the video tutorial below for instructions on how to make this card. Scroll all the way down for a linked supply list! 😄

I stamped, colored and die cut images from Heffy Doodle’s Oceans of Love and Shellabrate Stamp Sets. I also used Dutch stamps from the Bedankt Schat (Thanks, Darling/Treasure) Stamp Set from CarlijnDesign. Sometimes I have to go back to my Belgian roots and use Dutch sentiments, right? 😉

Next, I created a beautiful and sparkly underwater scene with Heffy Doodle’s Bubble Waves Stencil and Tonic Studios Moonstone Glimmer Paste. These new Media Spatulas from Tonic Studios are amazing, by the way!

Happy Monday, everybody! My exams are almost over so it’s almost time to celebrate. However, that’s not the only reason I want to celebrate. Remember that I briefly mentioned something about Spellbinders a while ago? Well, I can finally share the news… A while ago, Spellbinders reached out to me and invited me on their SpellBlogger team. Of course I said yes!

More information and a COUPON CODE can be found later in this blog post. First I would like to share my very first card as a SpellBlogger featuring the Make Mine Lemon Mine die cut set from the Shapebilities Market Fresh by Debi Adams collection ( Spellbinders | SSS | AMZ ). In this video, I’m showing you how to add dimension with Distress Ink to stand alone dies like these.

When I first saw the Make Mine Lemon Mine die cut set Spellbinders Make Mine Lemon Lime Dies ( Spellbinders | SSS | AMZ ), I knew I wanted to make a cute card with it! But when it arrived and I sat down to create something with it, I was a bit intrigued. I honestly rarely make a card using a stand alone die. I use coordinating dies all the time, but stand alone dies? Those are pretty new to me!

I die cut the lemon shapes with Spellbinders Platinum 6 Die Cutting Machine ( Spellbinders | SSS ). Then, I added dimension with Distress Inks. It looks like I used at least two different colors per tone while I only used one for each! For the yellow, I used Squeezed Lemonade Ranger Distress Ink Pad, Squeezed Lemonade ( EH | SSS | AMZ ). By simply adding more ink and by blending it out, you achieve a dimensional and fun look. For the green pieces, I used Twisted Citron Ranger Distress Ink Pad, Twisted Citron( EH | SSS | AMZ ).

lI wanted my sentiment to pop without using anything too bright. So, I reached for some subtle patterned paper from Pinkfresh Studio ( SSS ). I die cut the sentiment twice out of Fun Foam ( SSS | AMZ ) for extra dimension. Finally, I finished off my card with a variety of sequins from The Ton. They’re my favorite! 🙂

SPELLBLOGGER + COUPON CODE

When Shelley from Spellbinders reached out to me and asked me if I was interested in joining the SpellBlogger team, I agreed! To be honest, I never used Spellbinders product before but after doing some research I thought it would be a great idea to join the team. In honor to celebrate this special occasion, I’m sharing a coupon code LAURA10 to take 10% off everything but clearance.

Hi, friends! Welcome to my 10,000 YouTube Subscribers Video Hop. I have been looking forward to this event for over a month now. When I first hit 10,000 YouTube subscribers, I thought I was dreaming. I am so grateful and humbled to have such amazing subscribers like you. In honor to celebrate this milestone, I invited lots of talented designers to make videos for my video hop. I truly look up to these ladies and they never fail to inspire me. On top of that, I reached out to my favorite companies. They have been really generous and offered some really nice giveaways. Isn’t this super exciting?!

Be sure to watch the video or read the bottom of this blog post for more information about the giveaways.

In today’s video, I’ll be showing you how to create a fun fall themed slider card with the Jump For Joy set from Lawn Fawn.

video-hop-full-cardI started out by stamping images from the Jump For Joy set from Lawn Fawn with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on some Copic friendly card stock. After coloring and die cutting the critters, I added color to the leaves in one simple step. This set comes with an outline and a solid leaf. I colored the outline leaf by stamping the solid leaf on top. I used some ink pads from The Ton to ink up each leaf. This ink is simply amazing and can be used for stamping and blending!

I did some masking to create a fun scene. For the pink sky, I used Rose Quartz ink. For the grass, I used Everglade Moss ink. As I mentioned before, these inks from The Ton rock. They can be easily used for ink blending. These blend like butter.

Heat embossing is one of my favorite techniques and pretty powders make it even more fun. For my sentiment, I used Opaque Bright White powder from WOW. This is my favorite white embossing powder ever. I also used some Metallic Gold Rich Sparkle powder to add a gold touch to this project. 🙂

Like I mentioned in the beginning of this post, I created a slider. To be honest, I didn’t do very well because I totally messed up the steps! In the end, it worked out and it looks cute but I just messed up some of the steps. Before adhering your slider piece (in this case the fall scene) to your notecard, you have to put your penny between these two layers. Otherwise you have to slide your penny in the track and that can easily damage your stamped or colored scene. Be sure to watch THIS video for more info on slider cards. Sorry about messing it up!
