Good morning, friends! ❤️ Most of you already know I’m from Belgium, right? Well, unfortunately it’s not easy for me to find Dutch stamps. Most of those designs aren’t very modern. However, while I was browsing Cloud9 Crafts, I came across CarlijnDesign. I immediately fell head over heels in love with their fun style and high quality products!

In today’s video I’m showing you how to make a fun birthday card with the Kaarsjes Uitblazen (translation: to blow out candles) Stamp Set from CarlijnDesign and the Super Dog Set from My Favorite Things.

First, I created a beautiful cloud background with the Mini Cloud Edges Stencil from My Favorite Things and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink. I love how realistic these clouds look. It almost looks like a photograph! 😄

Next, I stamped and colored the adorable dog from the Super Dog Stamp Set from My Favorite Things. I also stamped the gefeliciteerd (translation: congratulations) sentiment from the Kaarsjes Uitblazen Stamp Set from CarlijnDesign.

Finally, I heat embossed a sentiment speech bubble with Versamark Ink and White Embossing Powder. To finish off the card, I applied some sparkle with a Spectrum Noir Shimmer Pen and a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze.

Happy Wednesday, friends! While I was brainstorming and looking through my stash, I noticed my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers haven’t been getting enough attention lately. 😄 So, I decided to combine them with the Moments of Bliss Stamp Set from Unity Stamp Company.

Make sure to watch the video below to see how I did this sparkly watercoloring.

First, I stamped one of the butterflies from the Moments of Bliss Stamp Set from Unity with Archival Jet Black Ink on Canson Watercolor Paper. I stamped over the black butterfly with Versamark, sprinkled on Clear Embossing Powder from WOW and heat set it.

Next, I watercolored the butterfly with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a Pentel Aquash Pen. In the video, I explain how to do this. To add the sparkle and to create beautiful blended colors, I used a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen in Clear Gloss.

To finish off this card, I adhered some Glass Slippers Sequins from The Ton and applied Tonic Nuvo Drops in White Blizzard.

That’s it for now! Thank you so much for stopping by. Sending big hugs! 💕

Happy Friday, friends! 💛 Today I’m here with a brand new card and some tips on how to use your scraps of patterned paper. I’m also entering this card into the 51th Lawn Fawnatics Challenge. 😄 This sketch challenge inspired me!

Next, I did some creative masking and ink blending with Mowed Lawn and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks. The Grassy Border Die Cut from Lawn Fawn is simply perfect for this.

Finally, I combined scraps of patterned paper from various Lawn Fawn paper pads including the discontinued Perfectly Plaid: Spring and Let’s Polka collection. However, the beautiful Spring Fling Petite Paper Pack is still available. Phew! 😄

That’s it for now. Thanks so much for stopping by. I’ll see you soon! 😘

Hi, friends! I hope you all had a wonderful, sunny Easter weekend. 🐣🐰 The past couple of days I’ve made a lot of cards with Tonic’s 21st Craft Kit – Distress Details. Guess what? I didn’t use a single stamp to create all five of these!

Make sure to watch the video below for lots of tips and tricks. If you’re new to my channel, subscribe and click the bell to receive notifications whenever I upload a new video.

For the first two cards, I used the Distressed Stencil that comes with the kit along with the Boatyard Blue Expanding Mousse and Soft Truffle Embellishment Mousse. Applying these mousses with a Nuvo Blending Sponge is so easy and fun to do!

Next, I decided to get create with some of the dies from the Distressed Edge & Tag Die Cut Set. I made my own stencil with masking paper and added a fun pop of color with the tiny flower dies. To finish off these little flowers, I applied Dirty Bronze Crystal Drops, Belgium Bluestone and Fiery Volcano Stone Drops.

Finally, I made an elegant gold card with the big rose die from the Distressed Edge & Tag Die Cut Set. I used one of the beautiful specialty papers that comes with the kit and combined it with White Blizzard Glitter Drops.
