Hi, friends! Today I’m sharing an adorable pink card featuring the Cutieasaurus set from My Favorite Things.

I started out by creating my own patterned paper in two easy steps! First, I heat embossed the Scattered Hearts Background Stamp from My Favorite Things with Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder from Wow. Next, I added color with Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink. I said it before and I’m going to say it again: these inks have won my heart. They blend so smoothly and are simply a joy to work with. 😍

Then, I cut a piece of Neenah White Card Stock to 4.25″ x 2″ and did some stamping with the Cutieasaurus stamp set from My Favorite Things. I colored the trees, plants and dinosaur using Copic Markers.

For the greeting, I stamped one of the sentiments using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Finally, I added sparkle with a Tonic Nuvo Shimmer Pen and Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. I also applied Tonic Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops.

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. 😔 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! ❄️💙

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. 💙😘

Hello, friends! How are you doing? I hope you had a nice weekend. Did you make a lot of cards on World Card Making Day? 💛 Oddly enough, I never get to making cards on WCMD. Never! Oops. 🙊

Today I’m showing you how to make a quick heat emboss resist background with my latest obsession, Distress Oxide Ink Pads and Unity Stamps

Big background stamps are the best to experiment with lots of different techniques. This time I decided to work with the Yuletide stamp from Unity Stamps. I simply heat embossed it with Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder from Wow and then added color with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink.

Even though it looks like I used two colors, I only used ONE! The trick to create a nice gradient is to apply the ink heavier around the edges of the paper and then blend your way to the center of the card without reinking.

Next I heat embossed a sentiment from the Full of Merry set from Unity. First I prepped my vellum with kitchen flour to make sure the embossing powder wasn’t going to stick everywhere. It looks like it really did the trick, because I ended up with a clean and crisp heat embossed sentiment. 😍

While my sentiment circle piece was flattening out under some books, I embellished the background with Tonic Nuvo Drops, a Spectrum Noir Shimmer Pen and Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. ✨

That’s it for now. Thanks so much for being here! 💕 Make sure to follow me on Instagram for sneak peeks and regular updates. Xo
