Winter Hamsters coloring tutorial | Waffle Flower Crafts

Hi crafty friends I am back again with another video tutorial and I am really happy because I am a guest designer for Waffle Flower Crafts. I am going to play with their November Whimsical Bundle. 



I LOVE this bundle so much. My favorites are these super cute Winter Hamsters. If you take a closer look at these stamps, you can see that the hamsters are grouped together as one stamp. Even the tiny parts are grouped and this can save you soo much time! You can stamp them at once and cut them at the same time, because the dies are connected. Soo much fun right? :) 



VIDEO TUTORIAL


I am super excited and I really hope you will enjoy it. You can find the regular post and used supplies below the video. 


Let's start with stamping and coloring. I stamped the cute images with my MISTI. I have used a beautiful brown hybrid ink pad called Gingerbread. This brown shade gives the images a more soft look when they will be colored. 


After the stamping I made a quick heat set and started the die-cutting! I LOVE these dies so much! I think it was a brilliant idea to connect them! I fixed the dies with Purple tape by thermoweb and I ran them through my die-cut machine as well as the Cozy Cabin Die. I colored the images with my Copic markers. I added the highlights with Signo Uniball White Pen. 


The next step was the ink blending with Shaded Lilac and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide inks. For this process I am always using my Water Media Mat! I love this tool so much, its super useful and easy to clean. After the ink blending I splattered it with water and let it dry. Finally I heat embossed the pretty snowflakes and the sentiment from Winter Hamsters stamp set. 


Next I put my card together. I've added a sparkling snow hill to the card. This was my leftover from a previous project, and I thought that I am going to use it. I added a cute decorations to the colored trees and I built up the scene. I adhered the critters and the foodies with 3D Foam Squares from Therm O Web. This gives a perfect dimension to the card. 


Finally I placed the sentiment to the hamsters hand and my card was ready. I really love the result, I hope you too. Thank you very much for reading through my post, I hope that you have enjoyed it and I have inspired you! See you next time.

November Small die of the month | Spellbinders

I think this is the most amazing snowflake kit, so if you like it don't hesitate, hurry, before it's out of stock! Its absolutely worth the price. You can find the used supplies below the post.


I started the cardmaking with Die-cutting. I made lots Die-cuts with those snowflakes from copper glitter cardstock, and removed the access with Tool'n One, it's my go to die-cutting thing and I just love it! 


Next I created a light blue, dry embossed background with the Love Stripes Embossing folder, and adhered on it the sparkling snowflake die-cuts in various sizes. In the center I adhered iridescent sequins and my card was almost done, I just needed the sentiment so I hot foiled the Merry Christmas sentiment with Blush Foil through the Glimmer Hot foil system.


In the end I put the foiled sentiment with 3D adhesive on the place and it was done.

5+1 tips to rock your Arteza Brush Pens | Video

Hi everyone and welcome back on my blog! Today I am going to show you a new type of post and video, I hope you will enjoy it. 


I got a generous package of art supplies in August from Arteza. I found lots of amazing products inside and I thought I am going to make an easy technique video with tips, tricks and nice color combos not only a video review.

VIDEO TUTORIAL 


I am super excited and I really hope you will enjoy that:


As I promised you can find my color swatches in the video. You need to know I am extremely in love with the water based Premium Real Brush Pens! These are very comfortable pens which are non toxic. I swatched all the 96 vibrant colors in August and put them to my shelf to avoid direct sunlight. I have used the Color Swatches Stamp Set from Waffle Flower Crafts and Bristol Smooth paper. Check these bright colors or feel free to download them in high resolution from here


Now let's see some easy tips on how you can play with these products. I prepared 3 cardstocks for these techniques. The Bristol smooth paper, which is perfect for brush markers; both sides of the Arteza Expert Watercolor paper, which is a premium quality watercolor paper; and the Neenah Solar white paper, which is absolutely not for water based markers. 


QUICK AND EASY TIPS 


01) The first tip is dip the brush pen into the water. The easiest way to color an image is when you dip your Brush Pen to water and color. You will get a perfect blend without blending and harsh lines. This technique is perfect when you need a quick but pretty coloring on your smaller images.

02) The second tip is pick a color. This is almost the same technique then the previous one, but instead the water you dip your brush pen to watercolor, or any water based color.


03) The third is the tip to tip technique. You can use this technique not only with your copic markers, but with your Arteza markers too. 

04) The Fourth tip is Paint on your paper and add water. This technique with brush pens is not for every cardstock type. However many of you have asked about this technique and I wanted to show you how it works on different papers and cardstocks. It works perfectly on the Bristol Smooth Paper because this cardstock is for brush markers. It doesn't work on the classic watercolor paper, because classic watercolor papers are not brush pen friendly.


05) Fifth tip: use it as watercolor. Paint on a plate with your brush pen and pick it with waterbrush and paint. When the first layer dried completely then you can add a second color like before and let it dry. 

+1) I am a cardmaker, so I am going to use the Real Brush Pens for coloring my stamped images, but this product is also good for hand lettering. It has a soft brush so you can write beautiful large letters. 


I think, there are much more techniques you can play with, but I thought, these five techniques were the easiest. Now let's see how my favorite inkpads work with Real Brush Pens. There were problems only with the distress inks, but these inkpads are used for ink blending. 


In the end I thought I am going to show you a few of my favorite color combos which I LOVE. I stamped these cute balloons from Heffy doodle with black ink. If you want you can create a completely new color by mixing two or three colors together. Just don't forget to paint your favorite mixed combos to your sketchbook, so you can re-create them in the future. 

To sum up, I am absolutely in love with my Arteza Real Brush Pens. The range of colors is totally enough for me. They are super bright and I extremely love that I can use them for various techniques. I think they are definitely worth the price. I am extremely happy that I have my new favorite water brushes too. The smallest rounded one is an absolute must have.

October Glimmer of the month | Spellbinders

Hello crafty friends, I hope your week is going well! Today I am going to show you my newest project with the October Glimmer of the Month kit from Spellbinders. You can find the used supplies below the post.


First, I created my 5.5 x 4.25" cardbase and created a stripy background with the Love Stripes Embossing folder. Next I made a blue watercolor wash with Bright and Neutral Jane Davenport watercolor palette on a watercolor paper then I splattered on it with dark blue and white watercolor, after that I let it dry.


Next I made the Hot-foiling with the Glimmer Hot Foil Machine and Copper foil because as always you can find one roll of hot foil in the kit. This time it is the beautiful Copper which is perfect for these pumpkins. I foiled a bunch of these leaves and pumpkins and colored them with my Arteza brush markers.


In the end I styled my card and put it together with adhesive. Love this kit soo much, if you have any questions feel free to ask me in the comment.

October Small die of the month | Spellbinders

Hello lovelies, after a long pause (wedding season shooting) I am going to continue my cardmaking adventures. I hope you keep reading my posts, I have lots of sketched card ideas for you and this is my first which I wanted to share with you. 


Today I am going to show you my newest project with the October Small Die of the Month kit from Spellbinders


I started the cardmaking with Die-cutting, so I adhered together a cute maid from black, white, brown and soft peach colored cardstock. After that I run trough my die-cutting machine the See You Soon sentiment too. For this I picked a gold glitter cardstock.


I wanted to add green leaves in different shades to my card. I used the leaves from the October Glimmer of the Month kit from Spellbinders, but I used them for dry embossing and die cutting. Next I made a 5.5 x 4.25" card base from red cardstock and stamped on it with Flannel Life Background Stamp from FSJ





When it was done I styled and put my card together. YAAAY! The festive feeling card is done. In the end I added a few little star confetti and my card was ready. 


If you like this inspiration feel free to save it to your Pinterest. 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. :)
