HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017, Winter Wonderland Heat Embossing, Copics, Shaker Card


Happy 2017 my crafty friends! Meg here, and I would like to wish everyone a happy, healthy and successful year ahead. 2017 is going to be a good one - please enjoy my adorable critter winter wonderland greeting card to bring in the new year.

I stamped a Hero Arts/Basic Grey stars background stamp onto mixed media cardstock using Versamark, a clear sticky ink. I then added white embossing powder and melted the powder with my heat gun. This yeilds a raised, shiny appearence. The stamped, embossed design will then resist water-based mediums. Therefore, I added some distress inks to the panel. I used my mini ink blending tools and 3 different colors of Tim Holtz Distress Inks; Wilted Violet, Cracked Pistacio and Salty Ocean. I am in LOVE with this color combination lately!! Perfect for a cold winter scene!

Once the background was complete, I chose this adorable critter stamp set and colored him using my Copic markers. I used the following Copic marker colors to color the entire squirrel image: C1, C3, V04, V06, V09, BG05, BG07, BG09, N6

I fussy cut out my winter squirrel and was struggling where to go with the card. I then remebered I had some gorgeous Kennedy Grace lilac and ocean water sequins - so had to make shaker card!!!

I used the Kennedy Grace Stacked Stitched Rectagles to make a sqaure frame for the sequin pocket. I cut the frame from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 130lb cardstock 6 times. I adhered each frame together, back-to-back, with the clear acetate window sheet between the top two layers. I added the sequin mixes and then adhered to the inked, star background panel. I added adorable colored critter to the left side of the shaker card and the card was finished!

I hope you enjoyed my Winter Wonderland heat embossing and Copic coloring greeting card. Happy 2017 everyone!!

Sweet Birthday

Hello everyone! First of all, wishing you all a very happy new year! It's Berina here today, sharing a beautiful and sweet card using the tic tac toe board for January!


I used the diagonal from the board - Die Cut, Embossing and Flowers. I decided to use the Splendid Roses for the flowers. I stamped the floral image using Memento black ink and colored the flowers with Copic markers. I used V09, V17, V15 and V12 for the flowers and G99, YG67, YG63, YG61 and YG03 for the leaves. I loved coloring these flowers. I cut the panel into 4" x 5 1/4". For the sentiment, I decided to go with the "Wishing you a sweet birthday" from the same stamp set. I gold embossed the sentiment and die cut it with a small oval. I colored the edges of the die cut with V15. I took a top folding A2 cardbase and colored the edges of the front with V15. I adhered the image panel on to the card base with glue and attached the sentiment panel with foam tape. I love how this card has turned ou…

Birthday Tea Party

Hello everyone! It's Berina here today! I'm here to inspire you to create something with our beautiful Mood board for December. I love the beautiful festive colors.


I've been wanting to use the Vintage Tea Cups stamp set the moment I got it I love the tea cup stamp. As soon as I saw this moodboard, I was fixated on using that stamp set.


I stamped the border image from the stamp set using Memento London Fog on the top left and lower right. I stamped the kettle and the cup with the same ink. I used Copic markers to color the images. I used BG15, BG13, BG11 and BG000 for the teal colored part and C7, C3, C1 and 0 for the remaining. I decided to add some grounding for the kettle and cup with the grey color. I stamped the sentiment using Hero Arts black ink.
