Hello, friends! Back in July I was contacted by an Australian stamp company called Uniquely Creative. The company offers various kits for crafters who enjoy scrapbooking and card making. However, lots of stamp sets and die sets are also individually available for purchase. I decided to play with the Flying By stamp set and do some masking to create a clean and simple card. 🙃

This card came together quickly! I did lots of stamping and masking. When masking, remember to stamp the images you want to be on the front first. You can also easily stamp your images all at once with the MISTI. However, a regular acrylic block would work, as well! 😊

Clean and Simple Masking Feat. Uniquely Creative

It’s been a while since I used sparkly embossing powder so I decided to add a pop of gold using the Metallic Gold Sparkle Embossing Glitter from WOW. I paired it up with black ink for a clean and crisp look.

To finish off this card, I added some shine with a Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen and a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. Finally, I applied Tonic Nuvo Drops. I love them! These look and dry like enamel dots, but it’s so much easier since you can pick the size of the drop yourself. 💫

That’s it for now. Thanks so much for flying (😉) by, my friends! 💛

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! 🌈

Ombre Heat Embossing Ft. WOW! Embossing Powder

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! 💕

Hello again, friends! What’s the weather like where you live? The past couple of weeks have been really hot and dry here in Belgium. It hasn’t rained in forever and everyone could do with some cooler temperatures. I can’t wait for autumn! It’s my favorite season among the spring. 💛

For today’s video, I decided to play around with embossing powder a little bit. I use standard white embossing powder often, but I don’t reach out to those bold or sparkly powders enough. So, I went ahead and mixed three powders together to create my own mix! All of the embossing powders I used are from WOW! Embossing Powder.

While browsing on Pinterest, I came across this beautiful combo. It reminds me of a gorgeous sunset and I decided to play with those colors myself. Lately I’ve been enjoying using more Distress Ink. I especially like to pair it with a clean and simple circle layout.

The stamps I used on this card are all from My Favorite Things. The Bitty Bears and Modern Trees have been in my craft room for a long time now but I only got around to using them once! I think the tree set is so versatile. It could be used for every season! Just switch up the leaves and colors and that’s it. 😄

To finish off this card, I decided to add some Tonic Nuvo Drops that matched with the Distress Inks. By the way, this card turned out completely different than I planned. My original plan was to make a one layer card and focus on the masking technique. However, I thought this design needed some dimension so I stamped and die cut the bear and adhered the panel to a colored standard size notecard. I’m happy I decided to switch it up. 😍

That’s it for now. Thank you so much for stopping by. I’ll see you soon. 😘 PS: Make sure to follow me on Instagram for my latest updates!

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!
