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.

Winnie & Walter 4th Birthday Bash Blog Hop Celebrating Love and Friendship

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. ✨

Adding finishing touches to cards with Tonic Nuvo products

Hi, friends. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know I’m a big fan of adding finishing sparkly touches to my cards. Sequins are my favorite embellishments out there since they’re available in many different colors and sizes. However, lately I see so many crafters using – and praising, Nuvo Drops. I purchased a couple of these a while ago and this time I finally got around to using them along with other Tonic products. ⭐️✨

Make sure to watch the video tutorial below. Check the supply list at the end of this blog post for links to all the products I used to make this card.

Patterned paper and punches were the first card making products I ever purchased along with stamps and ink. Because die cuts are more popular than punches lately, I haven’t used my punches in a couple of years. I own a lot of patterned paper but rarely use it. Since I’m still trying to get my creative mojo flowing again, I decided to challenge myself. 💡🤔 Jusin Timberlake has brought sexy back but now I’m bringing punches and patterned paper back. Hahah. 😂 Anyway, I used a Fiskars circle squeeze punch and some pretty patterned paper from Pinkfresh Studio. Don’t you just love the patterned paper I used? It has this collage and airy feel to it which I think is really great.

The Bitty Bears stamp set from My Favorite Things is one of my favorite stamp sets out there. There are so many options with these cute little fellas. I actually colored more bears than just this one. I think I’ll be using those on future cards. To add some dimension to the cupcake I used a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen and a coat of Nuvo Crystal Glaze. I also used Tonic’s Gold Dust glitter card stock to add more interest and sparkle to the sentiment banner. The sparkle on this card stock is so vibrant and the glitter doesn’t rub off. To finish everything off I used Nuvo Drops to ‘pimp’ some clear sequins. This is a fun way to cover up the little hole and to bring your sequins to the next level.

That’s it for now. I hope you enjoyed this card making video. Let me know in the comments if there’s any type of product you haven’t used in a while. Go ahead and set yourself a little challenge. Big hugs! ❤️

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. 🙂

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