Hello, friends! Welcome to another card making video tutorial. Today I’m showing you how to do super smooth Distress Oxide Ink Blending with cheap make-up brushes and an adorable stamp set from Unity Stamp Company.

First, I stamped the adorable cake image from the Happy Birthday Stamp Set from Unity Stamp Company with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I also stamped and heat embossed a speech bubble from the Stackable Cuties Stamp Set from Mama Elephant. I didn’t heat emboss the cake until I finished Copic Coloring since embossing powder damages your alcohol markers. So make sure not to heat emboss your images before coloring them!

After covering up the colored cake with masking paper, I used six colors of Distress Oxide Ink to create a colorful background: Spun Sugar, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass and Shaded Lilac. I also used the Medium Dots Stencil from Simon Says Stamp to add some polkadots to this background using the same colors of Distress Oxide Ink. I just applied them a little bit heavier to create contrast.

The brushes I used to do the ink blending are LIFE CHANGING! 😍 Lately I’ve been seeing these brushes in almost every single card making video tutorial so of course I had to give them a shot. I used super cheap, inexpensive make-up brushes from a Belgian shop called Action. I think I’ll be planning another visit to that shop soon to stock up on even more of these brushes since I love them so much! πŸ˜„

Finally, I adhered color coordinated sequins and added sparkly dots with Tonic Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops. I also used a Spectrum Noir Shimmer Pen and a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze for extra shine and dimension.

That’s it for now! Thank you so much for stopping by. I’ll see you soon! πŸ’•

Hi, friends! On Monday, my crafty friend Marika visited me. We made a card together and had so much fun. πŸ˜„ We decided to make a Springtime Shaker Card with Hello Bluebird Stamps and Dies along with two terrific stencils from My Favorite Things.

Make sure to watch the video below for tips and tricks on how to make this card.

First, I stamped and colored images from the Springtime and McGregor’s Garden Stamp Sets from Hello Bluebird. Like I mentioned in the video, my coloring technique is beginner friendly and super fun to do!

Next, I created a scene with the Mini Cloud Edges Stencil from My Favorite Things along with their Grassy Edges Stencil. Of course I used Distress Oxide Inks to do the blending. These inks are such a joy to work with! 😍

Afterwards, I made the frame for my shaker using a die cut from the Stitched Rectangles Die Cut Set from Lawn Fawn. This time I used Scotch Foam Mounting Tape to add dimension instead of Fun Foam and liquid adhesive. However, both ways work! Finally, I filled up the shaker with the Pink Lemonade Couture Mix from The Ton along with Sparkling Clear and Lime Sorbet Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Good morning, friends! ❀️ Most of you already know I’m from Belgium, right? Well, unfortunately it’s not easy for me to find Dutch stamps. Most of those designs aren’t very modern. However, while I was browsing Cloud9 Crafts, I came across CarlijnDesign. I immediately fell head over heels in love with their fun style and high quality products!

In today’s video I’m showing you how to make a fun birthday card with the Kaarsjes Uitblazen (translation: to blow out candles) Stamp Set from CarlijnDesign and the Super Dog Set from My Favorite Things.

First, I created a beautiful cloud background with the Mini Cloud Edges Stencil from My Favorite Things and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink. I love how realistic these clouds look. It almost looks like a photograph! πŸ˜„

Next, I stamped and colored the adorable dog from the Super Dog Stamp Set from My Favorite Things. I also stamped the gefeliciteerd (translation: congratulations) sentiment from the Kaarsjes Uitblazen Stamp Set from CarlijnDesign.

Next, I did some creative masking and ink blending with Mowed Lawn and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks. The Grassy Border Die Cut from Lawn Fawn is simply perfect for this.

Finally, I combined scraps of patterned paper from various Lawn Fawn paper pads including the discontinued Perfectly Plaid: Spring and Let’s Polka collection. However, the beautiful Spring Fling Petite Paper Pack is still available. Phew! πŸ˜„

That’s it for now. Thanks so much for stopping by. I’ll see you soon! 😘
