Mixed Media Valentine's Tag with Newton's Nook and Kat Scrappiness

Hello there, today I wanted to share a Valentine’s tag with you using Kat’s new tag dies and a really cute stamp set from Newton’s Nook. You know that I’m “a little” into mixed media, so I wanted to create something more towards that direction with the new Kat Scrappiness dies. But I also wanted to create something that fits to the current season so I decided to go with something pink πŸ™‚ I always think it’s easier to follow a mixed media project in a video vs explanations as text.

Lovely, Amazing You – Notecards for Your Valentine

Lovely, Amazing You

Lovely, amazing you was the first sentiment that jumped at me when I looked at the Newton’s Nook “Happy Little Thoughts” stamp set. I love stamp sets like that.

Today I decided to create two little note cards using this stamp set and two more from Lawn Fawn. I started with blending three Distress Inks onto the card base. To get an …

Hello everyone, I’m up on the Kat Scrappiness blog again and this time with a process video πŸ™‚ I’m featuring the Clarity Stencil Brushes with this card, as I just recently got a pack and fell in love with them immediately! I like them so much better than the Ranger ink blending tool to apply Distress Ink through stencils. I’m also using a hilarious stamp set from Newton’s Nook, a Carta Bella paper pack and stencil, and a really pretty sequins mix from Kat Scrappiness. But see for yourself: I hope you enjoyed my video for this snarky birthday card …
