Hello crafty friend, today I am showing you three envelope tricks to try right now! I have a really special post for you with a quick envelope magic, where I want to highlight you my friend Judit, from Artistampdesign


She is an Etsy makerwho is creating the most magical handmade personalized stamps ever. This post contains affiliate links and you can find the used supplies in the end of my post.


A few weeks ago I have received from her the most amazing personalized gift what a cardmaker can dream of! I got one address stamp and one stamp to the back of my cards. I remember those magical moments, when I was spying for Santa and I was super excited when I got a present from him. My feelings were exactly the same, when I received Judit's amazing package.

Three envelope tricks to try right now! 


I created for you a quick inspiration with Instagram Reels video, on how to rock your envelopes quickly. 


HEAT EMBOSSING

If you have a personalized stamp with your address, you can stamp with colorful ink to your envelope or you can stamp with watermark ink then heat emboss it with gold or any colored embossing powder. This will save you lots of time, and a stamped address is just amazing!



DRY EMBOSSING

Did you think about that you can dry emboss your envelopes? Oh yes! You can dry emboss your envelopes with your stencils and because of it your envelope will look more luxury and extra expensive! At scrapbook.com you can find 6"x8" sized stencils which are perfect for larger envelopes. For this inspiration I have used the Teardrop Floral Stencil



Once you heat embossed your sentiment, run your envelope through your die-cut machine with your favorite stencil. All you need to have a tan embossing mat what I am showing you in my dry embossing technique video here

WAX SEAL IT

If you feel that the heat embossed address and the luxury dry embossed envelope is not enough, then the cherry on the top is when you are closing your envelope with a wax seal. There are some new different and amazing tools for it be sure to check it out. 


These were my tips for today, I really hope you will try it, its so much fun, and your envelope will really rock! Be sure to visit my friends Judit's Etsy shop to see her magical personalized designs or reach her with a custom questions, she is always happy to help.

[Video] Magnetic cookie bookmarks from start to finish

Hello lovelies, I am back with an another realistic food coloring video tutorial. Today I am showing you on my YouTube channel how I created these Linzer biscuits with Heffy Doodle dies and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I encourage you to try it! It's much more easier then it looks like! You can find the video here. As always, you can find the used supplies below the post.


For this project I am using the new mini essential die set from Heffy Doodle which coordinates perfectly with the new Heffy doodle die-cutting machine. I am going to use the cute small circle dies; This size, is a perfect biscuit size, and I absolutely love these tiny scallops or frills on the edges.


For the coloring I have used Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers, but you can make it with any other markers as well. For the coloring and the full process be sure to check out the video tutorial here. Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers Used; Cookie: BG1, GY1, GB4, EB1, EB4 Strawberry Jam: CR4, CR9, DR5, DR7, Raspberry Jam: BP3, BP6, DR5, DR7.


After creating a couple more cookies, I am turning them into bookmarks. I am adhering the fronts and backs to the openable part with my liquid adhesive and when it dried, I am opening it and putting inside a pair of small magnets. I am just removing the parchment paper of the magnet, closing the cookies and my tasty bookmarks are done!

I found the best word die storage | Memorydex Rolodex Spinner

I was searching for a good solution to store my word dies since forever and now I feel that I have finally found it!

This beautiful tabletop Rolodex Spinner was created originally for memory keeping, but when I saw it, I fell in love with it, and I knew that I want it, and I will use it as a crafty assistant on my desk. 


I filled it with my dies and had soo much fun with it. In case if you want to check my video, you can find it here.


I created colorful cards from heavyweight cardstock in rainbow order, and turned it to my word die organizer. So, I got the Memory dies for myself and I created lots of colorful cards. Next, I created labels with the names of die-cut-s, so any time I am using a metal die I will know, what is its name and which brand it is. 



After I adhered the die-cuts to their right place, I added the printed label, then I turned the card, and adhered on it a smaller piece of magnet what I cut from leftover magnets. I can tell you I am in love with this blush amazingness. Heidi, thank you so so much for this product!  I really love it!

[Giveaway] Winter Trio Hop with Catherine Pooler, Heffy Doodle, and WOW!

Hi crafty friends! I am super excited that I am a part of the Winter Trio Blog Hop which is a collaboration with Catherine Pooler, Heffy Doodle, and WOW! We have so many inspirations for you with giveaways! Join us for the fun!


As an inspiration I have created this festive rainbow Christmas card, this is my first for this year and I can't get enough of it. It's super sparkle and colorful! This is what I love! :)


I started with stamping the colorful houses from the Alpine Village stamp set by Catherine Pooler. I love that in this set there are houses in different sizes. I stamped the images with Life of the Party mini inkpads by Catherine Pooler. I have used the Party Dress, Lime Rickey, Tutti Frutti, Aquatini, Something Borrowed, Tiara and Flirty Fuchsia colors. This was the first time that I have tried these inks, and I need to tell you! I want them all, so my Xmas whish list is done. 😍


When the stamping was done I die-cut the images with their coordinating dies, and continued the die-cutting. I have used the Stitched Slopey Joes border dies for creating the snow. I just die-cut white cardstock from Heffy Doodle, and made on it a heat embossing with Wanderlust embossing powder. I did the same, with the Merry and the Christmas Heffy Cuts an the Scalloped Slimline Dies, as well. But for those I have used the Metallic Gold Sparkle embossing powder. Look at that shine! LOVE! 


When it was done I created two more die-cuts with the Stitched Slimline Trio dies, one with the Tealicious cardstock, and one smaller one for ink blending. For the background I have used the Flirty Fuchsia and Aquatini inkpads and I just love this bright night sky! 


As a final touch I added small stars to the background from the Starlight Sparkles Glitter and my card was done. Thank you so much for joining me today, I wish you good luck on the giveaway!
