Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you all have been recovered from the busy holidays. 🙂 Today, I am here with another Saturday Stamp Day card and video using some of the new goodies I showed in my previous haul video.

It has been a while since I did some watercoloring so today I reached out to my beloved Gansai Tambi watercolor set to create a quick background. (By the way, the big box of 36 colors is currently on “reserve”. However, the two colors I used are also available in the 18 and the 24 set in case you’re interested.) I have one quick tip for doing washes of watercolor…. Simply dab your brush on your paper and add water if you want to create a lighter wash. It really helps! After the background was dry, I looped some white thread and I adhered a pretty wood veneer donut from Dear Lizzy on top of that thread.

The Donut You Know stamp set from Reverse Confetti has some great donut-releated sentiments in it that match the wood veneer donut perfectly. I heat embossed one of the greetings onto a vellum banner and adhered it on top of the watercolored background. Normally I use Glossy Accents to adhere these vellum banners, but today I used Multi Medium Matte from Ranger along with a stylus. This makes it easy to add teeny tiny dots of adhesive behind the white letters. To finish off the card, I used matching Pretty Pink Posh sequins and Dear Lizzy enamel dots. 🙂

That’s it for today. Thank you so much for stopping bye!

Today I am blogging over at the Winnie & Walter Blog since it is their birthday month. 🙂 We will be celebrating by hosting month-long challenges. I am a huge fan of challenges so of  course I’m hosting a challenge as well. It’s a good one so be sure to visit the Winnie & Walter blog to enter the challenge, for all the details and for a chance to win some prizes. Here’s a sneak peek of my project.

Happy New Year everyone! I hope 2015 will bring you lots of happiness, love and friendship. As my New Year’s gift to you, I decided to film an updated craft room tour. Lately, I have been posting a few peeks of my craft room on my Instagram account and a bunch of people have asked me to do a new and updated craft room tour. A few things have changed since my previous craft room tour including my stamp storage system.

By now you probably know I love to decorate my craft room. My decor has been switched up many times already, but this time I feel like it is finished and that I shouldn’t switch it up again. The color scheme of my craft room is pretty neutral with pops of color here and there. If you follow me on Pinterest you probably noticed my “Craft Room” board already. I recently updated this with all of the storage units and decoration I currently have.

One of the things I didn’t switch up that much are my storage systems. However, I do have a new container for my stamps and die cuts. You probably have heard about these containers trough Jennifer McGuire (that’s how I discovered them!). I use Fridge Binz and they are awesome. What I like the most about them is that they are big and sturdy enough to hold a lot of stamp and die cut sets. By the way, if you live in Europe and are afraid that you can’t purchase trough Amazon, check out Amazon DE. They ship to most European countries. 🙂

INK SWATCHES

In this video, you saw my ink swatches. I created my own little charts and stamped the ink color on there using a solid stamp from Winnie & Walter. You can download these swatches by clicking HERE. This is an editable file.

Good morning everybody! 🙂 Today I am here with another haul video. It has been a while since I uploaded one, but since I discovered a new online craft shop I thought I’d upload another one. Be sure to keep on reading because I will be talking about that online shop!

SCROBBY.NL

As I mentioned in the beginning of this blog post, I discovered a new and trendy online craft shop. Scrobby (love that name!) is a company based in the Netherlands. They offer a big assortment of goodies for scrapbooking, card making, art journals and mixed media. This online shop is well-known for their splendid service. One of the things I like the most about them is their shipping. Your order will be shipped on the same day if you order before 4.00 pm CET time. 🙂

(By the way, Scrobby didn’t ask me to do this blog post. I decided to talk about them since I received a lot of questions from Belgian and Dutch card makers concerning crafty online shops.)

UPCOMING TREND

After filming this haul video, I noticed that diamonds and stars are very much in trend in card making land. 🙂 I’ve also noticed this while I was working on my “Stationery” inspiration board on Pinterest.
