Hello, friends! Today I’m sharing a card made with Tonic’s 18th Craft Kit called ‘Dream in Color’. With shades of lilac, fuchsia, turquoise and apricot, this kit is simply gorgeous. 😍 For more information about this Tonic Craft Kit, click HERE.

When I first opened this kit, I instantly fell in love with the beautiful papers and intricate die cuts. I decided to use one of the Secret Garden dies and Neenah Solar White card stock to create my own stencil.

DIY Stencil + Ombré Glitter (Tonic Craft Kit Issue 18 - Dream in Color)

The color scheme of this Craft Kit inspired me to create an ombre lilac background. I smeared the Spring Heather ink pad on my craft mat and mixed it with Moonstone Glimmer Paste to create my own color. I applied the Moonstone paste on the top and then used my spatula to create a nice blend between the two colors.

After letting the Glimmer Paste dry overnight, I trimmed down the piece to 4″ by 5 1/4 ” and adhered it on one of the patterned papers from the Dream In Colour 6×6 Paper Pad. Next, I stamped a sentiment from the Secret Garden stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. To finish off this card, I applied Tonic Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops and Nuvo Supernova Dream Drops.

That’s it for now. Thank you so much for stopping by. I’ll see you soon. 💜💌

Hello, friends! 💛 Happy New Year! I wish you all the best in 2019: lots of happiness and love, a good health and anything else your heart desires!

Today I’m finally back with a new card and video. I decided to keep it fresh and colorful by stamping a colorful background using the Shirley’s Bloom stamp set from Winnie & Walter.

Using my MISTI, I stamped a floral background with the Shirley’s Bloom stamp set from Winnie & Walter. I used ink pads from various brands. I don’t have a favorite since all of these are quality dye ink pads and stamp smoothly. 😄

Stamped Floral Background + Vellum Frame

Next, I die cut the ‘hooray’ word from the In a Word: Birthday Tiles die cut set from Winnie & Walter. I used Gold Dust glitter card stock from Tonic and added dimension with Fun Foam.

Stamped Floral Background + Vellum Frame

For the frame, I used the die cut three times. I die cut it twice out of French Mints card stock from Bazzill and once out of Fun Foam. I cut a piece of vellum to the same size of the frame so it would match perfectly. Finally, I used Dandelion Yellow Crystal Drops from Tonic to add an extra pop of color.

That’s it for now. Thanks for stopping by. 💌

Hi, friends! 💕 Yesterday, my Seven Hills Crafts order arrived and I went straight to my craft room. I ordered the Deck the Howls set and the Candy Land paper pad from My Favorite Things.

In this video I’m showing you how to make a clean and simple holiday card with clean and simple die cutting and easy Copic coloring. Watch the video below.

The Ho Ho Ho die from MFT inspired me to make a clean and simple holiday card. I was inspired by the Candy Land paper pad to work with a bright, playful and non-traditional color scheme. I mixed a fun piece of patterned paper with Robin’s Egg and Juicy Pear Card Shoppe card stock from Bazzill.

Next I stamped and colored three dogs from the Deck the Howls stamp set from MFT. I enjoyed playing around with different colors and spots! That corgi makes me smile. 😄 So adorable!

I adhered the dies with Tonic Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and foam squares. To finish off the card, I applied a coat of sparkle with the Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen and topped it off with a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. Finally I used Tonic Nuvo Glitter Drops for an extra touch of glitter. ✨

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

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.

Hoppy Halloween Shaker Card Feat. My Favorite Things

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. 💫
