Hello, friends! Today I’m sharing a card made with Tonic’s 18th Craft Kit called ‘Dream in Color’. With shades of lilac, fuchsia, turquoise and apricot, this kit is simply gorgeous. 😍 For more information about this Tonic Craft Kit, click HERE.

When I first opened this kit, I instantly fell in love with the beautiful papers and intricate die cuts. I decided to use one of the Secret Garden dies and Neenah Solar White card stock to create my own stencil.

DIY Stencil + Ombré Glitter (Tonic Craft Kit Issue 18 - Dream in Color)

The color scheme of this Craft Kit inspired me to create an ombre lilac background. I smeared the Spring Heather ink pad on my craft mat and mixed it with Moonstone Glimmer Paste to create my own color. I applied the Moonstone paste on the top and then used my spatula to create a nice blend between the two colors.

After letting the Glimmer Paste dry overnight, I trimmed down the piece to 4″ by 5 1/4 ” and adhered it on one of the patterned papers from the Dream In Colour 6×6 Paper Pad. Next, I stamped a sentiment from the Secret Garden stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. To finish off this card, I applied Tonic Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops and Nuvo Supernova Dream Drops.

That’s it for now. Thank you so much for stopping by. I’ll see you soon. 💜💌

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! 💛

Hello! As promised, I got back to card making this weekend and I had so much fun. 😄 If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you already saw a sneak peek of today’s card. I’m so excited to be sharing the full card in today’s blog post along with another video tutorial.

In this video I’m featuring the adorable Beam Me Up set from Lawn Fawn. Those aliens are simply adorable. (PS: Want to see another card I made with this stamp set? Simply click HERE!)

It’s my dad’s birthday this Tuesday, so I had to pick out a color scheme he would like. I decided to play with shades of yellow, lime and turquoise for this year’s birthday card. I thought this color scheme was perfectly suitable for these aliens and I actually enjoyed stepping out of my comfort zone. 💛

Once I masked and ink blended the background, I decided to add some stars with a stencil from Winnie & Walter and Moonstone Glimmer Paste from Tonic. I love this stuff and I should stock up since my jar is almost empty! This paste is super sparkly, applies easily and dries within 30 minutes. 💫

For the sentiment, I mixed and matched different stamps together. I embossed the greeting with Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder from Wow. Make sure that your ink is bone dry before heat embossing. Otherwise your embossing powder will stick everywhere. Even though your ink is dry, I still recommend using a tool or kitchen flour to remove any static cling before heat embossing.

To finish off this outer space birthday card, I used a Spectrum Noir Shimmer Pen to add glitter to some of the elements. I also added a coat of Tonic Crystal Glaze. Because even though this is supposed to be a masculine birthday card, a healthy dose of sparkle is ALWAYS allowed! 😉

That’s it for now. Thanks so much for stopping by. Make sure to follow me on my social media profiles to stay connected. Big hugs! 💕

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. 💕
