Two “Simple” Cards – Guest Designing for Emerald Creek

Two simple cards with Emerald Creek and Ken Oliver Color Bursts

I’m so excited to be guest designing for Emerald Creek today and I’m so grateful for this opportunity. I met Kim at Creativation and after talking a bit I just asked her, if I could create a card with one of her amazing stamps. You should definitely take a look at her store, she has some super unique stamps, embossing powders and little gems. Because I liked the “simple” stamp from Kelly Klapstein so much, I decided to create two cards with it. I just love that font and as you might know, I’m not a “simple” card kind a …

Week 1 and 2 Wanderlust 2017 – Experimenting for an Online Class

Wanderlust 2017 Week 2 Making Magic Art Journal page

I wanted to share an experiment with you that I started at the beginning of the year. I joined Wanderlust 2017, which is a year long online class that publishes a new tutorial every Friday. It’s all about mixed media, especially art journaling and every teacher talks about different techniques or strategies on how to approach art. I’m not affiliated with them, so I’m really just telling you about it, because I have a blast getting out of my comfort zone with this class. I finished the 2nd week (yes, I’m already a little behind…) and wanted to share my …

Video: So Suzy Special – Snowflakes are Kisses from Heaven

Snowflakes are Kisses from Heaven

Brrr, winter…Even though I’m living in California I need my warmer temperatures back. The only good thing about winter is snow (some might disagree with me), especially when you didn’t have snow for 3 years now. Good that So Suzy has such cute winter sentiments like this one: “Snowflakes are kisses from heaven.” *squeeee* I just recently made a trip to IKEA (needed some craft furniture 😛 ) and I also brought some napkins home. Because these had snowflakes on them I thought that they would fit really good to the sentiment, so I created a mixed media style card …

Snarkfest Art Journal

Man, I haven’t shared an art journal page in forever. Shame on me! Good that we have Snarkfest going on in the Snarky Stamper Facebook group and I was in the mood for some fun. And fun always includes smearing around with paints and a snarky sentiment. In this case the “Second Chance” sentiment from So Suzy Stamps 😉 I started by painting three different Dylusions paint onto the background, Postbox Red, Squeezed Orange, Pure Sunshine. The easiest and fastest way is by using a baby wipe and to avoid fuzzy paper with this technique, it’s best to Gesso it …
