Just Waving Hello


Hi everyone! Today, I have a card to share with you featuring the Hello stamp set from Waffle Flower that I like so much.




These characters are super cute. The two boys are from the Hello set, as well as the sentiment, and the sweet bunny is from the Hoppy stamp set. I created a rainbow background using Distress inks and blending tools.


Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great time!

Today, I’m showcasing the newest Aussie Animals stamp set:





Most of the supplies I used for this project are linked at the bottom of this post. I went for a clean and simple card featuring the BEAUTIFUL tree stamp. I first created a sky background using blending tools and Distress inks. I then stamped the tree using Black Licorice hybrid ink to the sponged panel. I colored the tree with a black marker, stamped the sentiment and drew two birds. I grounded the scene with a strip of Black Licorice cardstock. To finish off the card, I adhered the sponged panel to a white top-folded card base using foam adhesive for more dimension. I really like this peaceful scene!

My Favorite Things May Release | Day 5


Hi everyone! Today is the first day of the My Favorite Things May release countdown. This release is packed with amazing new products! You’ll love them!

The new products will officially be available on the MFT online store on May 8th at 9:00 pm EST (= Europe: May 9th at 3:00 am CET).

Today, I’m showcasing the newest Basic Shapes – Circles stencil:





Most of the supplies I used for this project are linked at the bottom of this post. I LOVE love love all basic shapes. They allow creating fun and creative cards! The newest Circle shapes stencil is fantastic. I first created a white top-folded card base and rounded the right corners. I then used the stencil to create a bubbly design. I lightly drew the circles with a pencil and colored the shapes using Copic markers. I then erased the remaining pencil marks. I heat embossed the sentiment (from the newest Safari Party stamp set) with white embossing powder on a black cardstock label and adhered the label to the bubbles using foam pads for more dimension.

Spellbinders Collaboration | Fancy Heat Embossing


Hi everyone! I’m thrilled to share two cards using products from the latest Spellbinders collection.






First, I got the chance to play with the Floral Panel Card Etched Dies (from the Flower Garden Collection by Sharyn Sowell). As you can see bellow, it’s a cover-up die.




But I decided to think "out of the box" and use it in a different way. I die cut the panel from white cardstock and I cut out one flower (on the top right corner) with scissors. I sponged the flower with Distress inks and then with Versamark ink. I sprinkled Frantage Shabby White Embossing Enamel over the flower and heat embossed the piece with a heat gun. Next, I created a top-folded card base with light pink cardstock. I did some tiny black ink splatters on a white panel, heat embossed the sentiment using golden embossing powder, tore up a piece of vellum with my fingers and fixed it to the panel at a corner. To finish off the card, I adhered the flower to the vellum using foam pads for more dimension and the panel to the pinkish card base.  




For the second project, I worked with the Shapeabilities Botanical Dragonfly Etched Dies (also from the Flower Garden Collection by Sharyn Sowell).



I die cut the dragonfly from white cardstock, sponged the pieces with Versamark inks and heat embossed it with gold sparkle embossing powder. I then created a top-folded card base and sponged blue ink over it using a stencil and blending tools. I adhered the dragonfly to the card front with foam pads for more dimension and added a label sentiment, heat embossed with gold embossing powder, as shown. The sparkle effect is SO beautiful and looks incredible in real life (much more as on the picture).
