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. 💫

Happy Monday, friends! When I first started card making, heat embossing was one of the first techniques I learned. For today’s card, I decided to pick out some shades of turquoise glitter embossing powder and make an ombre background. The Basic Backgrounds stamp set from Sunny Studio is a great set to make stunning backgrounds. 💛

I used three different embossing powders from Wow! Embossing Powder: Atlantic Seaspray, Under the Sea and Long Island Teal. All of these powders have a beautiful gold glitter. 😍 Sadly enough, I wasn’t able to catch the gorgeous sparkle on camera but I guarantee you… it’s so pretty in real life.

I colored some images from the adorable Beach Babies set from Sunny Studio. I really like how the hair turned out! Like I mentioned in the video, I learned a lot from the free Markers 101 coloring class from Kit and Clowder. I recommend checking it out since it’s FREE! 🌈

To finish off the card, I used Tonic Nuvo Drops. Honestly, I’ve had these for a while but I’ve always been too scared to actually use them! Because once you apply the product to your card, it’s there to stay – LOL! 😄 However, I got over the fear and just started to have fun with them. Nowadays, I apply the Nuvo Drops randomly and just stop whenever it feels right.

That’s it for now, my friends. Thanks for stopping by. Sending big, big hugs! 💕

Happy Wednesday, friends! A couple of days ago, I picked up some new Lawn Fawn goodies. I ordered these from Erwtje, a Belgian online shop. The Beam Me Up set inspired me to create a galaxy background. Honestly, I was a bit afraid since I have never tried ink blending a galaxy background. But I think I did pretty well considering this was my first attempt. 🌌

I stamped and colored images from the Beam Me Up set with Copic Markers. These aliens are so much fun, don’t you think? 💜

Galaxy Background with Distress Ink and Tonic Nuvo Drops

These Distress Inks are the perfect combination to ink blend a galaxy background. Just layer all the colors together and keep blending until you’re happy with your result. I flicked some water droplets for some dimension. Then I used the Snowy Backdrop die from Lawn Fawn. As you can see you don’t specially have to use that die for winter themed cards. I filled up the little holes with a variety of Tonic Nuvo Drops. I paper pieced the stars with Black Sapphire Glitter Card Stock from Tonic.

Galaxy Background with Distress Ink and Tonic Nuvo Drops

For the black border, I created my own black card stock by ink blending Black Soot Distress Ink. However, this is optional since you could use black card stock and just skip this step. I don’t have a lot of black card stock left so I thought I’d save some by creating my own!

That’s it for now. I had so much fun creating this galaxy card even though it was a bit out of my comfort zone. Thanks for stopping by. Big hugs. 💌

Hi! I’m here with another card and video tutorial. 💛 Today’s blog post is part of Winnie & Walter’s 4th Birthday Bash Blog Hop to Celebrating Love and Friendship. I’m grateful to be part of the Winnie & Walter Design Team. Shay’s kindness warms my heart and of course I’m in love with Winnie & Walter’s product style.

In today’s video I’m showing you how to make a fun love and friendship themed card featuring True Dotty Heart Cutaways and Dog-gone Cute with Evelin T Designs. These two products are part of the brand new February 2018 Release. I also used the Katharine Cutaways. This is an oldie but goodie. One of my favorite die cut sets ever.

I started out by die cutting lots of images. First I die cut the stitched heart out of a scrap of bright green card stock. I die cut the scalloped heart out of white card stock. I love that one! It reminds me of a doily. I pieced both hearts together using my favorite craft glue from Tonic.

For the card base I used Taffy card stock from Bazzill along with patterned paper from Avery Elle. The designs and colors in this paper pad are so much fun. Lots of rainbow colors! 🌈 I’m slowly getting over pastel colors these days. However, they will always hold a special place in my heart.

I did some simple Copic coloring on the dog from the Dog-gone Cute with Evelin T Designs stamp set. I’m not very good at coloring animals so that’s why I like to stick to some neutral grays. I heat embossed the sentiment with WOW! Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder. Finally, I adhered everything together with foam squares and liquid adhesive and I added some sparkle with the Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Shimmer Pen and a coat of Crystal Glaze from Tonic. ✨
