Hi, friends! πŸ’› Today I’m a Guest Designer for Craftin Desert Divas. Yay! In this blog post, I’m featuring the super cute Magic Trolls stamp set.

Unfortunately, I don’t have a video for you because I’m sick again. πŸ˜” I went to the doctor three times this week because I have never felt this sick and tired before. I have bronchitis, and a throat and sinus infection. The doctor ordered me to rest so I can fully recover. I can’t go to work until December 17th. 😱

Anyway, back to today’s card! The Magic Trolls stamp set is part of the December 2018 Release from Craftin Desert Divas. This set is just so cute and I had a lot of fun coloring these images.

Magic Trolls (Craftin Desert Divas)

I started out by stamping two of the trolls on Neenah Solar White Card Stock. Then I masked off these images with masking paper and ink blended a background with Distress Oxide Inks. I added some water splatters to add more dimension to the background.

After coloring the trolls, I created a custom made sentiment. I simply opened up Microsoft Word, typed my greeting and printed it on Bazzill Card Shoppe Card Stock. I made this card for my cousin’s baby boy Mattias who will be celebrating his first birthday on December 12.Β 

To finish off this card, I added some shine with a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Shimmer Pen and a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. I also used Tonic Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops for a bit of glitter! 

That’s it for now. Make sure to visit the Craftin Desert Divas blog for more information about the new release. 😘

Hello, friends! I’m stoked to be back with a new card making video tutorial. Last week I had a week off work/school (Fall Holiday), but sadly enough I was sick for the entire week. πŸ˜” I was suffering from a sinus infection. Thankfully, I’m finally feeling better and I’m back to card making, blogging and teaching at kindergarten.

In this video I’ll be showing you how to make an ombre sequin shaker and how to create a quick and easy watercolor background with Distress Oxide ink pads.

I started out with a piece of Canson Watercolor paper that I had already cut to 4 1/4 inch x 5 1/2 inch. Using the Trio of Trees stamp set from My Favorite Things, I heat embossed snowflakes all over the paper.

Next, I used Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink to create a blended background. I randomly applied the ink to the card stock and blended everything together. Then, I used a Ranger Mister to spray water all over the card stock. Finally, I applied some water droplets and picked those up with a tissue. I absolutely LOVE how it turned out! β„οΈπŸ’™

Ombre Sequin Shaker + Distress Oxide Watercolor Background

After making sure my Distress Oxide background was dry, I used the Fa La La die for my shaker. I adhered a piece of acetate to the back of the card stock and created a frame for the shaker using Fun Foam and Tonic Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. Next, I filled up the shaker with a bunch of blue and clear sequins. To finish off the card, I embossed a simple sentiment banner. 

That’s it for now! Thank you so much for stopping by. I’ll see you soon. πŸ’™πŸ˜˜

Hi friends! It’s Friday and I’m getting ready for a relaxing weekend filled with lots of card making. πŸ˜„ Today I’m part of the Heffy Doodle Winter Release Blog Hop. More information about the blog hop and GIVEAWAY can be found below.

In this video I’ll be showing you how to create a green gradient background with Heffy Doodle’s brand new Crosswalk stencil and the super fun Prehistorical Pals set

First, I created a green gradient background with the Crosswalk stencil. I used Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide inks. This time I also added some water splatters. I simply sprayed some water in my hand and flicked it on the paper. Afterwards, I picked up the small puddles of water since I didn’t want to mess my card stock up.

Next, I stamped and colored two images from the Prehistorical Pals stamp set from Heffy Doodle. Isn’t this set simply adorable? I haven’t seen anything like this before! 😍

After die cutting a stitched rectangle from the Metric Stitched Rectangle die cut set, I heat embossed a sentiment with Opaque Bright White embossing powder from WOW. Finally, I assembled everything together and added some shine with a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Pen and a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. I also used Apple Green and Key Lime Tonic Nuvo Drops.
