Spellbinders Collaboration | Birth Card

Hi everyone! I’m thrilled to join Spellbinders for a new collaboration this month! I’ve made two cards using products from their newest collection and today, I want to share the first one!

For today’s project, I used the New Arrival stamp and coordinating dies set! It’s absolutely perfect for a birth card for a sweet little girl or a cute boy!




I went for a colorful card. Why not? Baby cards often show soft and pastel colors. But I like the result. I first cut a white panel and created the background sky. I did a self-made stencil by drawing and cutting some puffy clouds in scrap paper with scissors. I then sponged Distress inks over the stencil onto the white panel using blending tools. I colored stamped the sentiment using black Archival ink using the Mini Misti stamping tool. I created a top-folded card base, fixed two strips of patterned paper and adhered the cloudy panel to the card front as shown. I stamped the stork with the baby bundle, colored the image and cut it with scissors (but you can use the coordinating dies that come with the set). I adhered the image to the clouds using foam pads for more dimension. To finish off my card, I added a few enamel dots. It looks very playful! Do you like it?


Here is the set I used:

MFT June Release | Product Launch

Hi everyone! Yay! It’s time for the My Favorite Things June product launch! Today, you can see all new products and they are available right now on the MFT online store!

Here is my card featuring the newest Radiating Halftone Background:




Most of the supplies I used for this project are linked at the bottom of this post. I went for the resist technique. I started by stamping the background with Versamark on white cardstock and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then blended various Distress inks over the background. With this technique, the background shows up so well! I then die cut the WOW from the colorful panel and a second time from foam. I created a top folded card base and adhered the sponged panel to the card front using adhesive tape. Next, I inlaid the foam with glue on the openings and on top the colored letters. Bellow, I adhered a Tropical Teal cardstock label that I heat embossed with a sentiment from the You Wow Me stamp set. To finish off my card, I added two enamel dots and a seagull from the Just Beclaws stamp set.

My Favorite Things June Release | Day 2

Hi everyone! Today is the fourth day of the My Favorite Things June release countdown. This release is packed with amazing new products! Isn’t it? The new products will officially be available on the MFT online store on June 5th at 9:00 pm EST (= Europe: June 6th at 3:00 am CET).

Today, I’m showcasing the newest Fireworks set:





Most of the supplies I used for this project are linked at the bottom of this post. I first heat embossed the fireworks using Versamark ink and white embossing powder. Next, I sponged various Distress inks over the fireworks. I then sponged the edges of the panel white black and blue Distress inks. As the panel is still a bit wet after blending, I left it dry and heat embossed the sentiment from the You Wow Me stamp set using white embossing powder. I die cut the WOW word from Silver Sparkle cardstock and adhered it to the background with foam adhesive for more dimension. To finish off my card, I attached the panel to a top-folded black card base. I really like how the fireworks pop against the dark background.
