Creativation 2018 recap

Live From Creativation FB Event Banner

Creativation 2018 is over and I came back with lots of inspiration (and a few goodies). This post is probably going to be a little longer as there is a lot that I’d like to share with you 😉 Interesting products Let’s start with all the goodies. One of the biggest booth at Creativation was the one from Ranger. I have a recording from my Facebook live here (the audio is a little low, because I didn’t want to scream over all the conversations that were happening around me): In this video you also see Emerald Creek and Seth Apter…

Introducing the Love is in the Air Stamp of Approval Collection

Welcome to the official release of the new Stamp of Approval collection “Love is in the Air”. Make sure to get one before they are all gone. Usually they sell out FAST. The link to the store is here. When you’re done shopping, you should check out all the projects. The Creative Team has prepared a bunch of amazing cards as inspiration for you. Mine is featuring a little bit of mixed media and some foiling. I know that you have a lot to read through today, so I thought that I prepare a video. What do you think? Isn’t…

Mixed media art on a card? Yes, please! – featuring Visible Image stamps

Mixed media art on a card? Yes, please! Featuring Visible Image stamps.

I was in the mood for some mixed media fun, but I didn’t want to create an art journal page or canvas. So I decided to create some mixed media art on a card instead. My new paint addition from a Black Friday sale and some of the Visible Image stamps helped me making my idea a reality. I started with some texture for the background and added a mix of peach and grey color to it. I never used that color combo, but have seen several great projects from other crafters with it. After I was done with the…

Snarktoberfest 2017 Blog Hop – Join us for a month long party

Snarktoberfest 2017

Last year was the first time I celebrated Snarktoberfest with all of you. Throughout 2017 I realized that there are so many amazing and talented people out there with an incredible sense of humor (black, just like mine), so I decided to ask a few of them if they would be interested in joining me for this years’ celebration – and they all said yes… Can you believe that??? I was blown away (and still am…)! After literally everyone I asked said yes, I realized that I have to come up with an even bigger party as I originally planned…

Floral times 3 or how to create 3 cards using one background stamp

Hi everyone and happy Thursday! Today’s project was inspired by my little grab bag that is sitting on my craft table. You might wonder what that grab bag is… Well, it’s actually a box now and it contains all the goodies that I have bought during the last months (yes, months…) and haven’t really used yet. So I decided to pick the sunflower background stamp from the Ton and get it all inky (like literally). I ended up with three floral cards, all a little different. I created all three at the same time and started with stamping the image…

How to create a fairy background with Distress Oxide and So Suzy Stamps

Fairy Background with Distress Oxide and So Suzy Stamps

Yay, I’m up over at the So Suzy Stamps blog again. Have you seen these cute little tea cup fairies over at So Suzy Stamps? They are back and they deserved an appropriate fairy background with Distress Oxide and Distress Ink. I just love the combination of the Distress Inks and Oxides, they always turn out insanely pretty. In addition, I found some Perfect Pearls in one of my drawers and added some fairy sparkle at the end. But see for yourself how easy yet beautiful this technique is: Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed my…

How to become a pirate with So Suzy Stamps

how to become a pirate with So Suzy Stamps

Arrrr, you land lovers! It’s inspiration day over at So Suzy Stamps and I grabbed one of the stamps that is back in the store – the pirate 😀 You probably know by now that I love the Distress Oxide, but what I love even more is the combination of Distress Ink and Oxide. It’s the mix of vibrancy and rusty that really gets me 😛 That’s why I created a set of cards for you using both, Distress Inks and Oxides, water and some acetate. Enjoy! I hope you enjoyed my cards and are not mad that I didn’t…

How to create a mixed media card with So Suzy Stamps and Finnabair

Mixed Media Card with So Suzy Stamps, Ken Oliver Color Burst and Finnabair embellishments

You might have seen that I started teaching classes in my local craft store Scrapbooking Forever and I prefer to teach techniques. I think showing how to use a product in different ways is more interesting than one project using tons of products and learning just one technique per product. While preparing one of my classes this is one of the cards I created as an example. I like mixed media, so I created a mixed media card with So Suzy Stamps, Ken Oliver Color Burst and Finnabair embellishments. All supplies used are listed at the end of the page.…
