Good morning, friends! Today I am sharing a quick and colorful project using the Felicity Collection from Pinkfresh Studio along with the LS Exclusives: So Tweet with Evelin T Designs by Winnie & Walter. This video is part of the Winnie & Walter Share the Love Week featuring Pinkfresh Studio. 🙂

Ever since I started card making, I have been a fan of bright and happy cards. So for the Share the Love Week hosted by Winnie & Walter, I decided to play with a lot of products from the Felicity collection from Pinkfresh Studio. Be sure to check out the Winnie & Walter blog for more information using their stamps and the Felicity collection from Pinkfresh Studio. Everybody made such nice projects!

I truly love that bright and striped patterned paper. I cut a small strip of it and adhered it onto a standard size notecard. Using small strips of patterned paper is a good way to brighten up your card. Next, I started playing with the stickers and the washi sheets from the Felicity collection. Those birds make my heart happy! I wanted to create a really airy and collage feeling on this card, so I adhered a tiny strip of the washi tape and two fun stickers.

Of course I couldn’t resist adhering a couple of sequins. I mixed some clear sequins with a puffy sequin sticker from the Felicity collection. This sticker sheet comes with a bunch of sequins in various colors. So cute and perfect for when you’re creating quick cards! Finally, I heat embossed an ombrĂ© sentiment from the Winnie & Walter LS Exclusives: So Tweet with Evelin T Designs stamp set. I sprinkled on the Atlantic Seaspray embossing powder first and then the Long Island Teal powder. I would suggest to funnel each color separately back into the jar before moving on to the next color. I totally forgot to do that when I was making that card. I guess the colors got me a bit too excited! 🙂

Hey everyone! It’s Laura here and today I am here with a card that I made for the Newton’s Nook Designs blog. I am thrilled to be a guest designer for them this month and to be sharing a card made with their adorable Holiday Smooches set. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to film a video showing how I made this card since it was very dark outside (I don’t have artificial lighting for filming) and since I had to do some studying. However, I will try to explain everything very clearly like I do in my videos.

I started out with a white base of Neenah White card stock. After die cutting a scalloped border using the Noelle dies from Winnie & Walter, I took a circle die. I wanted to create a snow globe effect so I had to do some partial die cutting. I simply grabbed my circle die and positioned it on the white card stock using washi tape. Then, I took my T-square ruler and a pencil to draw a line. This line was my guide so I knew where I had to place my cutting plates. I lined up the drawn line with my cutting plates and secured the card stock onto the plates using more washi tape. Next, I die cut the whole piece and used a crafter’s knife to finish my snow globe.

After I finished the die cutting, I stamped the penguins from the Holiday Smooches stamp set. I colored these buddies using ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a Pentel Aquash Brush. I have used these markers plenty of times in my latest videos, so I recommend checking those out if you’re not familiar with these markers. Then, I started creating a sequin shaker using the FUSE tool by We R Memory Keepers along with sequins from The Ton. I absolutely love that tool and it’s a must have to me!

I adhered the sequin shaker to the back of my white base using ATG by Scotch. Next, I adhered the penguins onto the shaker using foam adhesive. For the sentiment, I used the same Holiday Smooches stamp set along with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I also stamped some pool colored hearts using Lake Shores ink from Simon Says Stamp. I added extra sparkle using Diamond Stickles, a sequin here and there and my newest obsession… gems. Finally, I used Tim Holtz Clear Rock Candy Stickles to add some more dimension to the penguin’s scarves. 🙂

That’s it for now! Thank you for checking out my blog. I hope to be sharing another video with you very soon. Big hug! xo
