Happy Saturday, everybody! School has started again for everybody here in Belgium, except for college and university students like me! I’ll be going back to college on September 18th, so I thankfully have some relaxing time left!

The Fall/Winter 2017 Release from Lawn Fawn is available for purchase at most online shops, so I thought I’d share a holiday card made with the Beary Happy Holidays set ( ELH | SSS | AMZUS | HLM ). I pre-ordered mine at Erwtje.be which is an online crafty shop in Belgium. I highly recommend checking it out if you’re a local.

I used the Carly Cutaways die cut set from Winnie & Walter ( W&W ) to make a fun Christmas bauble shaped card. You could tie a bow and hang it in your Christmas tree, if you want! I didn’t have any ribbon that matched the colors of my card so I wasn’t able to do that, unfortunately.

I created a fun cool winter night sky with Tumbled Glass ( ELH | AMZUS | SSS ), Broken China ( ELH | AMZUS | SSS ) and Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink ( ELH | AMZUS | SSS ). Lately I’ve been enjoying these inks. I never was really into them – except for watercoloring, but after playing around a bit I decided I want to do more ink blending. I stamped the snowflakes from the Beary Happy Holidays set with white pigment ink. However, it didn’t show up! So I had to improvise a bit by using white embossing powder ( ELH | SSS | WOW ) to heat emboss them and make them pop!

I used fun patterned paper from My Favorite Things ( ELH | SSS ) to add a pop of pattern behind the winter scene. I ¬†finished off the card with some shimmer and shine! I used the Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen ( ELH | SSS | AMZUS ) to add a bit of glitter to the fish and the bucket. It doesn’t show up on the picture, but I can assure you that it’s super sparkly in real life. In my opinion, even sparklier than ZIG’s Clear Wink of Stella pen. ūüôā

That’s it for now! Thanks for joining me today and I’ll see you soon. Xo

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! ūüôā
