May Small die of the month | Spellbinders


Hello crafters, today I am going to show you my newest project with the May Small Die of the Month kit from Spellbinders


I started the cardmaking with Die-cutting. I played with my favorite color combo, I used yellow, pink and blue cardstock and added a little neutrals too. Next I made the card base from Neenah Solar White Cardstock. Its size is 5.5 x 4.25 inches. 


I created a stripy background with the Love Stripes Embossing folder and splattered with dark blue and white watercolor. 


I let it dry until I adhered together all the Die-cut pieces. When it was done I styled and put my card together. YAAY! My enjoy the ride card is done.

Candy Box | Sunny Studio Stamps


Hi crafty friends! Today I am showing you a clear box filled with yummy jelly beans. For this project I used the new Wrap Around Box die from Sunny Studio Stamps.



I started the card making with die-cutting. I run the largest die from the Wrap Around Box set through my Die-cut machine and made four pieces of acetate die-cuts and adhered them together with double sided adhesive.




Next, I made four circles from the Colorful Surprise cardstock and four parts from white cardstock to the top and styled my box. I also made sweet and cute tiny tags with the die-set.
In the end I stamped and colored sweet figures from the Coastal Cuties stamp set and my candy box was ready.

Spellbinders | Glimmer of the month May



Hello crafty friends, I hope your weekend is going well! Today I am going to show you my newest project with the May Glimmer of the Month kit from Spellbinders.


First, I created my card fronts with Chambray Shirt and Pool Play papers. Their size are 5.5 x 4.25 inches. Next I made an ink blending with Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Inks.


When it was done I made the Hot-foiling with my Glimmer Hot Foil Machine. Look how easy is to make a quick and beautiful elegant card with this set. As always you can find one roll of hot foil in the kit. This time it is the beautiful Polished Brass Foil Roll. This color matches perfectly with this beautiful blue paper!


In the end I die-cut the center of my card with the coordinating die and added a heat embossed sentiment from the Must Have Sentiments stamp set, added some embellishments and it was ready. Thank you very much for reading through my post, I hope that you have enjoyed it and I have inspired you! If you like my creations let's be friends on Instagram. :)

Altenew May 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil/Ink/Enamel Pin Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello crafty friends, I am so excited to join the Altenew May 2019 Blog Hop. Today we are celebrating the new May release!  If you are already hopping you should have arrived from the talented Enza Gudor


Today I am showing you two cards. I used for both of them the amazing Dotted Swirls Debossing Cover Die and created a unique and textured base. But before I am showing you my cards, you need to check the amazing new enamel pins from Altenew! Aren't these amazing? I am super excited to them because I just love enamel pins!


For my first card I used the beautiful Basic Blooms stamp and die set. I made a stamp layering with my favorite Mini Ink Cubes from Altenew and made a vibrant and colorful bouquet look. 


When the stamp layering was done, I run them through my die-cut machine with the coordinating dies and styled my card. In the and I added the heat embossed sentiment and my card was ready. 


For my second card I used the unique Ornate Foliage stamps and dies. This stamp set is very special, because you can stamp the lines then color it as you want or you can stamp the parts separately. I decided to use gold embossing powder with Iceberg blue Crisp Dye Ink! 


When the stamping was done I added adhesive to the white parts and I got a nice dimension. I styled my card and once I was happy with the result I added the heat embossed sentiments and adhered everything together and my card was ready!

Mini cards | Sunny Studio Stamps


Hi crafty friends! I hope your week is going well, today I am showing you two mini cards with the new Seasonal Trees stamp set from Sunny Studio Stamps. You can find the used supplies below.


I started the card making with stamping and coloring. I stamped the images with the Seasonal Trees stamp set and added a cute bunny from the Spring Greetings stamp set. After the coloring I run them through the Die-cut machine with the coordinating dies. 


Next I adhered a pink cardstock to the background from the Flirty Flowers paper pack, then added a frame die-cut made with Fancy frames rectangle dies. Next I added colored images to the card and placed them in different ways.

In the end I heat embossed the sentiment to a blue cardstock and my card was ready.

Gradient Glitter Background | Scrapbook.com


Hello lovelies and welcome on my blog. Today I have a quick and easy ink blending step by step photo tutorial for you with the new exclusive clear photo-polymer stamp release from Scrapbook.com. As always you can find the used supplies below the post. 


I started the cardmaking with ink blending. As you can see, I used the Hybrid Inkpads with stencil blending brushes and I started my blending process on a silver glitter cardstock. 



This is very important! For this technique you should use hairy blending tool. In this technique I was inspired by my sweet friend Mindy. She is an amazing cardmaker so be sure to check her linked feed and give her some love. 



Next I made a white die-cut with the Reverse Stitched - Scalloped Rectangle Windows, adhered on it a foam tape to add a little dimension, then applied a thicker layer of adhesive (you need to do this because of a glitter cardstock), then adhered it to my card. 


Next step was the stamping for which I used the Hugs for you set. For the ink blending and stamping I used the Confetti Pink, Rubber Ducky and Mermaid Hybrid Ink Pads


When the stamping was done I fussy cut the sentiments, added a heat embossed sentiment and my card was almost ready. 



I wanted to add a little cuteness to my card so I added cats what I made with the I love You This Much Stamp Set, adhered everything together and my card was ready. 


Thank you very much for reading through my post, I hope that you have enjoyed it and I have inspired you! If you have any questions feel free to ask in the comment and if we are not already, let's be friends on Instagram. :)
