Happy Saturday, friends! Today I’m part of Heffy Doodle’s blog hop in honor of their brand new Winter release. This new release is simply adorable and I think you’ll love this products as much as I do.

In this video, I’m showcasing the new Elfish Antics set ( HFF | SSS ) to make an elf-tasctic – lol, sequin shaker card! ūüôā

I had a lot of fun making this sequin shaker! I created my own patterned paper with the Peppermint Zone stencil from Winnie & Walter ( WNN ) and Festive Berries Distress Ink ( ELH | AMZUS | SSS ). These inks blend like butter! Because I haven’t used them in a while, I really noticed how amazing these inks are. ūüôā

I colored the sweet elf from the Elfish Antics set from Heffy Doodle ( HFF | SSS ). I used Copic Markers to color the image. I mentioned all of the colors in my video. This time I didn’t link to each marker since that’s very time-consuming and since I don’t have a lot of time nowadays, I couldn’t do that. ūüôā I hope that’s okay!

I filled up my sequin shaker with a variety of sequins from The Ton. That’s my favorite part of making a shaker! Picking different colors and shapes of sequins. So much fun.

Happy World Card Making Day, my friends! This is my first blog post for today. I’ll be sharing another one in a couple of hours! Last year I wasn’t able to do anything in honor of World Card Making Day so I thought I’d make up for that this year.

I’m joining Simon Says Stamp today to share some WCMD happiness. The lovely Susan from SSS, invited card makers from around the globe to make a Christmas/holiday card for the Simon Says Stamp blog to celebrate WCMD! More information about giveaways and linking up your own creations can be found at the end of this blog post.

I started out by creating an ink blended winter sky with Tumbled Glass ( SSS ), Broken China ( SSS ) and Faded Jeans ( SSS )Distress Inks. Then I stamped winter trees with the Modern Trees set from My Favorite Things ( SSS ). I ended up adhering 4mm sequins to serve as Christmas baubles. Doesn’t that look cute?

I colored three bears from the Bitty Bears set from My Favorite Things ( SSS )with Copic Markers. I colored one of the bears with darker shades of gray to have some variation. Creating shakers is so much fun! It’s one of my favorite techniques. In the past I created shakers in various ways but my favorite way to make shakers is with Fun Foam and acetate!

For the base of my shaker, I die cut a frame using the Pierced Rectangles die cut set from Spellbinders ( SSS )and Icy Mint card stock from Bazzil ( SSS ). Next I created a frame using Fun Foam ( SSS ). You could also use foam tape but make sure to coat the edges with kitchen flour or anything else that removes static cling (Martha Stewart Powder Tool, Embossing Buddy, etc). After adhering some acetate ( SSS ) I adhered the shaker piece to my card. Eep! Look how fun it turned out! If I say so myself, lol!

GIVEAWAY

Like I mentioned in the beginning of this blog post, this card is part of Simon Says Stamp’s special blog post in honor of World Card Making Day. In total there are 19 designers from around the globe who are joining these festivities! YOU can link up your own Christmas/holiday card in an InLinkz over at the Simon Says Stamp blog. Random winners will be chosen to win one of 10 $50 gift cards for the Simon Says Stamp store¬†as well as a one subscription to Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine. Good luck!

Hi, friends! Today I have another card for you featuring Distress Inks. Lately I’ve been enjoying these inks so much. In this video, I’m showing you how to create a Fall inspired blended background and I’m featuring some stamps from My Favorite Things’ September 2017 Release.

I started out by masking off my white card stock to create a panel for my Fall scene. I used Carved Pumpkin ( ELH | SSS | AMZUS ) and Fossilized Amber Distress Ink ( ELH | AMZUS | SSS ) to blend the background. It’s very important to really saturate your blending foam so you can do effortless and flawless blending!

After adding subtle water splatters, I stamped the trees from the Modern Trees stamp ( ELH | SSS | HLM ) with Archival Jet Black Ink ( ELH | AMZUS | SSS ). The new Bitty Bears stamp set from My Favorite Things ( ELH | SSS | HLM )is simply adorable. I colored only two bears this time, but I’m planning on making more cards so I can use all of them!

This card came together relatively quick! After stamping a sentiment, all I had to do was add some shimmer and shine with a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen ( ELH | SSS | AMZUS ) and Glossy Accents ( ELH | AMZUS | SSS ). I also adhered a cute die cut heart for an extra touch of cuteness!

That’s it for now. Thanks for stopping by today and I’ll see you soon. Xo
