Hi, there! Sorry for being so inactive lately. 😔 As you all know, I struggled a bit the last couple of weeks so I took a break from card making and focussed on myself. Thankfully, I’m doing much better now. My mojo has returned and I’m having lots of fun again in my craft room. Sadly enough, I still don’t have a full-time job as a kindergarten teacher. However, I did replace a couple of sick teachers in the school where I did my internships during my studies. It was so much fun to reunite with the colleagues and kids. 💛 Let’s hope I can teach there full-time one day. 

Back to card making now! Last week I ordered the Oh Kitty Tree set from Mama Elephant. In my opinion, this is the perfect stamp set for any cat lover! 😺 But it’s also a great stamp set for those who want to practice their coloring. In my video, I’m sharing some tips and tricks including how to fix ‘mistakes’.

Make sure to watch the video below and subscribe to my YouTube Channel.

I started out by stamping the large image from the Oh Kitty Tree stamp set from Mama Elephant on white card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then I used Copic Sketch Markers to color all of these cats. I added stripes and spots with the darkest marker of each shade to make every cat unique. Aren’t they adorable? My favorite cat is the one on the bottom right wearing the scarf.

After die cutting the image, I wanted to switch up my color scheme a little bit. So I fixed the turquoise and some of the yellow. I simply colored on top of those colors with red and green markers. Make sure to take a color that’s darker than the original shade so nobody will ever notice!

Next, I created a gradient background with Festive Berries, Abandoned Coral and Picked Raspberry. These colors work beautifully together and create a nice blend. ❤️ I also heat embossed a sentiment from the Oh Kitty Tree set with Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder from Wow. Finally, I added sparkle with a Clear Sparkle Pen from Spectrum Noir, a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze and a few Tonic Nuvo Drops here and there. ✨

That’s it for now! Thank you so much for stopping by. I’ll be back soon. Sending big crafty hugs to all of you. Xo 💕

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!
