Hi everyone! Today I’m joining Heffy Doodle for a fun blog hop celebrating their first birthday. 💛 I’m featuring the Oceans of Love set along with the Bubble Waves stencil to create an adorable underwater scene card.

In the video, I’m showing you how to make this cute card. I did a bunch of techniques including ink blending, masking, Copic coloring, heat embossing and even a magic stencil technique I learned from Jennifer McGuire. Make sure to watch the video below.

I started out by doing some masking and ink blending to create the base of my ocean scene. For the bottom of the sea, I used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo. For the actual water, I used different shades of blue. Finally, I added more dimension to the sea with the Bubble Waves stencil from Heffy Doodle.

Oceans of Love (Heffy Doodle 1st Birthday Blog Hop)

I did some stamping with the Bubble Waves stencil. This is a great technique I learned from Jennifer McGuire. I simply sprayed the stencil with water, turned it around and pressed it onto the paper. To make sure I had a nice stamped impression, I used paper towel. I like how it turned out! 😀

Oceans of Love (Heffy Doodle 1st Birthday Blog Hop)

Aren’t these sea animals from the Oceans of Love set adorable?! I love them. For the sentiment, I did some heat embossing with Atlantic Seaspray and Clear Gloss embossing powder from WOW. To finish everything off, I added a coat of sparkle with a Crafter’s Companion Sparkle Pen. So far this is my favorite sparkle pen because of the amount of glitter it adds. 😍 I also used Crystal Glaze from Tonic for extra shine!

Hello, dear friends. 💛 As promised, I’m back today with two new cards. Same technique and same design, BUT two different color schemes. 😄

In the video I’m showing you how to make masked, ink blended, emboss resist background panels. I used the Marbleize and Bed of Roses stamps from Winnie & Walter. These are 3×4 little background stamps and are perfect to experiment with a bunch of different techniques.

For my ink blended panels, I used Distress Oxide inks. These blend like butter. I’m so amazed at their pigment. So far I have seven colors, but I think I’ll be expanding my collection pretty soon. 😍 These are truly fabulous. For the yellow/green card I used Squeezed Lemonade and Twisted Citron. Combined with the Marbleize stamp, this card looks so modern!

For the flower version of the card, I combined Picked Raspberry with Spiced Marmalade (not *dried* as I said in the video, lol). I used the Bed of Roses stamp for this design. 🌹

After finishing the backgrounds, I colored the pair of dogs from the Dog-gone Cute stamp set from Winnie & Walter. I love that poodle and corgi together. They look so cute! I colored these dogs with Copic Markers. I kept it very simple by only using two markers per color.

I used the Katharine Cutaways die cut set from Winnie & Walter to make sentiment banners. Of course you could just cut these with scissors but I had these dies on hand so it was quick and easy! 😀 I heat embossed the sentiments on the paper banners with Opaque Bright White Super Fine embossing powder from WOW. Finally, I finished off my cards with a coat of sparkle using the Spectrum Noir Shimmer Pen and a layer of Crystal Glaze from Tonic. ✨

That’s it for now. Thanks so much for stopping by. Big hugs. 💕

Hi, all! How are you doing? My Summer Break is nearby and I’m excited. 😄 I can’t believe I’ll finally be graduating as a preschool/kindergarten teacher. I’m already sending out my cover letter to nearby schools. Fingers crossed I can start working as a teacher in september. 🤞🏻🍀

In today’s video I’m showing you how to create an ink blended and stenciled beach scene featuring the Beach Babies set from Sunny Studio. These cute images are so much fun to color. ☀💛

I started out by stamping and coloring some of the images from the Beach Babies set. While coloring I noticed I need to expand my Copic marker collection for more skin tones and hair colors. Do you have any recommendations? After I was done coloring these kids, I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Ink Blending A Beach Scene Ft. Sunny Studio Stamps

Next, it was time to ink blend the beach scene with Distress Ink and masking paper. I used Tumbled Glass and Broken China for the ocean. For the sand, I used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo. I added more dimension to these pieces with a stencil and brown Copic markers.

Ink Blending A Beach Scene Ft. Sunny Studio Stamps

Finally, I stamped a sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I curved this clear stamp so it would match the circle shape. To finish this card off, I added a coat of sparkle with the Clear Overlay Spectrum Noir Pen and Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. 💫

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