Hi, friends! I’m so glad to be joining My Favorite Things for their monthly feature called MFT & Friends. The design team and different friends of My Favorite Things will be showcasing the products from the August 2018 Release. I decided to work with the Friendship Rocks set to make a super colorful birthday card! 💛

In my video tutorial I’ll be showing you how to blend a smooth rainbow background with Distress Oxide inks. These inks blend effortlessly. So smooth and clean. 😍 I felt so much joy while I was creating this background. Blending with Distress Oxides has quickly become one of my favorite techniques.

Before ink blending my background, I heat embossed the stars with Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder from WOW! from the Friendship Rocks stamp set from My Favorite Things. Then I colored one of the girls and the mini stage with Copic Sketch Markers. I added sparkle and shine to these images with a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss Pen and a coat of Nuvo Crystal Glaze.

Finally, I finished off the card with Nuvo Drops in matching colors. 🌈 I really like how those White Blizzard Nuvo Drops are transparent and let the Distress Oxides shine through.

Thanks so much for stopping by. 😊 Make sure to visit the MFT blog to see more creations. Big hugs!!!!

Hi, friends! How are you doing? What’s the weather like where you live? We’re suffering from a heat wave here in Belgium, but it looks like it’ll be FINALLY cooling down by the end of the week. The past couple of days I’ve been working hard in my craft room. I have lots of new blog posts and videos scheduled and a bunch of fun collaborations coming up. I discovered two fun new brands I’m excited to share about and I got the chance to do some guest designing for two of my favorite brands: Sunny Studio and My Favorite Things. Yay, yay, yay! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

This Sunday, August 12th, I’ll be guest blogging for the Sunny Studio blog. I’ll be showing you how to create a pop up slider card! Don’t worry, I also have a video scheduled to show you how I made this! 😀 This card will feature the Home Sweet Gnome set and the Sliding Window Pop Up die set.

Hello everyone! We’re suffering from a heat wave here in Belgium and seeing Sunny Studio’s Fall 2018 Release, makes me long for autumn. 🍁 🍂 I can’t wait for cooler temperatures and overall sweater weather.

In today’s video I’m doing some autumn inspired ink blending using Ripe Persimmon, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber Mini Distress Inks. I’m also pairing the brand new Fall Kiddos and Happy Harvest sets from Sunny Studio. These images are simply adorable and are so much fun to color.

First I masked off a border at the top and bottom of my card. I cut a piece of Heffy Doodle Memo Tape in half. Easy and fast! You could also use masking paper or sticky notes. Whatever works for you! 😀 Then I ink blended a pretty background with Ripe Persimmon, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber Mini Distress Inks.. Like I mentioned in the video, take your time to blend away. Also make sure your blending foam is saturated with ink.

Next I colored images from the Fall Kiddos and Happy Harvest sets from Sunny Studio. I used Copic Sketch Markers. I adore coloring with these markers. In the past I was always scared to color with alcohol markers because it seemed quite intriguing at first. Totally unnecessary because coloring is so relaxing and therapeutic!

After stamping a sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I added a coat of sparkle to the images with a Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen. Out of all the glitter pens I tested, this one is my favorite. It is the sparkliest in my opinion and it looks even better with a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze on top! 💫 To finish off this card, I applied some Tonic Nuvo Drops here and there.

That’s it for now. Thank you so much for stopping by. See you soon! 😘
