Happy Sunday, friends. 💛 On Friday I celebrated my 21st birthday and now I’m enjoying a week off school before kicking off my internship at kindergarten. Last week I got to meet the kids and they’re all such sweethearts. I can’t wait to teach them new things!

Since I have some time off, I finally got around to making a card with the Honey Bunny Boo set from Heffy Doodle. Fun fact: I thought this set was named Honey Boo Boo. 😂 Sometimes I read too fast. I paired up this stamp set with hexagon dies and bright patterned paper.

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.

I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto white card stock before coloring them with Copic markers. I used bright pink, yellow and green colors. I’m thinking about expanding my Copic marker collection a bit so I’m doing lots of research.

Hexagons and Easter Bunnies with Heffy Doodle Stamps

These bunnies are so adorable. I wanted to color their fur in white so I just used a Colorless Blender and the N0 Sketch Marker. That does the trick. It adds just the right amount of shading.

Using patterned paper can be tricky for me, but when I have the right dies it’s easy peasy lemon squeezy. 🍋 I used the Sorbet Collection paper pad from Avery Elle along with the Josephine dies from Winnie & Walter. By the way, I die cut the medium sized hexagon shape both out of white card stock as well as the patterned paper.

Finally, I put all the pieces together with my new favorite glue and foam squares. Oh and I also added some finishing shimmer with the Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen and a coat of Clear Glaze from Tonic.

That’s it for now. Thanks again for stopping by. I’ll see you soon. Big hugs. 💛

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! ❤️

Hi everybody! I’m thrilled to be back with another video and two cards in honor of The Ton’s Summer 2017 Release Blog Hop. The Ton has 24 new stamps for their new Summer 2017 Release which includes up to four free gifts with purchases. For more information on The Ton’s incentive gifts, head over to The Ton’s blog. All new release products are available now!

I decided to showcase the Beer stamp set and the Sunnies stamp set. First, I’ll be showing you the Father’s Day card I made with the Beer stamp set. I’m pretty sure my dad will love this set since he’s a Belgian beer lover.

This card is super clean and simple, but I did add some pops of sparkle with sparkly embossing powder and a variety of The Ton’s sequins (Spotlight Couture Mix and Glass Slippers). Even though this is a Father’s Day card, I couldn’t resist! My dad knows that I’m sequin and glitter obsessed so I’m sure he won’t mind! 😉

Stamping the beer was a lot of fun! I like to use my MISTI tool whenever I’m using a layering stamp set since it makes it just so much easier. Especially if you’re going to be mass producing designs! For the body of the beer I used The Ton’s Citrine Ink Collection. For the handle I used Crystal Pewter and Smoky Quartz. Finally, I used Noir for the sentiment.

For my second card, I wanted to feature the adorable new Sunnies stamp set. I created a collage style card by mixing different stamp sets. I used the Darling Flamingos, Macarons and Fresh Cut Peonies sets from The Ton. I just love these different images together! It looks pretty cute! I used some clear and sparkly embossing powder for a glossy finish on the sunglasses. I finished off the design with a variety of sparkly sequins. By the way, if you’re looking for a detailled supply list, just scroll all the way down.
