My Cup of Tea – Foiling techniques with PaperArtsy

My Cup of Tea - Foiling techniques with PaperArtsy

What an exciting technique for the PaperArtsy blog – foiling. I have followed this trend for a while now, always thinking about how I could use this as part of my art journals or mixed media projects. I enjoy the look of a foiled background or when the foil is rubbed onto nearly dry alcohol ink. For this post, I wanted to use something that I haven’t used in a while though – foil flakes. That’s the good thing about renovating your house. You find items that you haven’t used in a while. I knew immediately, that I wanted to …

Christmas cards mixed media style with Tonic Studio

I couldn’t wait to share my first project for the Tonic Studio design team with you! So many new possibilities with their gorgeous powders and sprays and of course I had to test a bunch of it.

Once I start it’s always hard for me to stop, so you’ll see me create a few cards. I really enjoy the watercolor smooshed …


Save the Crafty YouTuber Hop – Snarky Mixed Media Cards

Save the Crafty Youtuber Hop Snarky Mixed Media Cards with Finders Keepers

Welcome to the 2nd Save the Crafty Youtuber hop. Justine did it again and organized an amazing hop throughout 5 days. We are at day three and it’s all about mixed media projects. Because I’m celebrating SnarktoberFest I decided to create a few snarky mixed media cards, in bright colors to show that mixed media doesn’t always have to be grungy, rusty or vintage-y. This hop is again sponsored by great companies. All of them have sponsored prizes that you can win by leaving comments throughout the hop. The more comments you leave on the videos, the more chances you …

Sweet cocoa with Emerald Creek aroma embossing powder

Emerald Creek Sweet Coffee

Hi everyone and welcome to a new project for Emerald Creek. This time I decided to create something using the Aroma embossing powder. They are called Aroma because they smell like whatever the name is, for example the Chocolate Dream that I’m using smells like Swiss hot chocolate, yummy. So, I had to pair it with the new Unwind stamp set from Pam Bray to create a sweet cocoa card. During the video I’m showing you how to create a fall colored background using water color powders and how to color an image using embossing powder. Both super fun and …

Simon Says Stamps Stamptember

Hi and welcome to Stamptember – woohoo! This is the first time I’m celebrating with Simon Says and I’m super excited to share two cards with you that I made with one of their new background stamps. For those of you who are coming from the big party over on the Simon Says blog – welcome 🙂 – my name is Josefine and I’m a mixed media artist who loves the messy way of crafting. Although these cards look a little more clean and simple compared to what I usually do, I had inky fingers afterwards – and that’s all …


Emerald Creek and the Great Outdoors

The great outdoors with Emerald Creek

Oh my, I had so much fun creating these four cards. It feels like I haven’t made a mixed media card in forever, even though I know it’s not true 😉 So what better timing than the current theme over on the Emerald Creek blog Great Outdoors. I love playing a little and then making a few simple cards. These are a great combination of paint splattering (just a little) and embossing powder fun. You can see all the details in my video. Here I show you how I created the backgrounds using a brayer and my Gel Press and …


Going batty with Catherine Pooler

Going Batty with Catherine Pooler

Trust me, I am definitely going batty over this release. Halloween is my favorite (if you haven’t figured that out yet…) and I had so much fun playing with this release. I thought that this release needs to be featured in the right light (see where I’m going with this? 😉 ) and that’s why I had to pull out the Glow int the Dark embossing powder. And as you will see throughout the hop, the Creative Team has a thing for it. I created two cards for the hop. One that features the glow in the dark embossing powder …
