Fairy Jar Lantern Card & Video Tutorial!

Hey everyone it's Elina here & happy Saturday to all!
I hope your weekend is off to a good start.
For today's post I have a card I created inspired by Pinterest board.
I like to go through my pin boards when I need to find inspiration.
I especially love going through the Home Décor boards
to see which pins I could turn into a card.
I find it challenging to use the supplies I have to re create a look.

You can check out the video tutorial below to
see how I take a "Fairy Jar Lantern" pin and turn it into a card.

Here are a few close up pics for you to check out:


I love how this card turned out.
I used my "Large Mason Jar" stamp set from Two Paper Divas &
a Tinkerbell silhouette I cut from my Cricut Explore.


I used vellum paper for the mason jar to give it a frosted look.
Then I added twine and flowers along the top.
And finished it off with the sentiment and sparkles.

I think it's a cool way to use your pin boards as inspiration.


I hope you enjoyed this card & video!

Thanks for stopping by & have a great weekend!

"Bronies are Cool" Card & Video Tutorial feat. Stamp Anniething's "Dean" stamp!

Hey everyone it's Elina here and happy T.G.I.F to you all!
I hope your Friday is off o a good start!
For today's post I have a card I created inspired by "My Little Pony".
As you know, I love altering stamped images to give a new look.
If you read my previous post and/or video "Summertime means Unicorns"
you saw how I created a "unicorn" costume for the "Melanie" stamp from Stamp Anniething.
So going off of that idea, I decided to alter the "Dean" stamp from Stamp Anniething & give a custom hoodie inspired by "My Little Pony".

My daughters were huge fans of the show & I remember
my oldest telling me that the show had a huge cult following among guys.
They even have a name for these fans, "Brony".
I thought that was cool and she showed me the licensed merchandise geared to them.
So when we came across a hoodie based on "Rainbow Dash" that's when inspiration struck.
First I had figure out how to create the hoodie on the existing image.
So going back to my "unicorn" costume, I stamped the image &
drew the hoodie on top to create a template.

You can check out the process video below:

Doesn't he look adorable?!


I love how this image turned out.
I hope to be able to film how I create the templates 
so make sure to stay tuned for that.

I added stitching details to the card, hoodie and jeans.
I also "distressed" the jeans a bit with my Gelly Roll White gel pen.
I think this is a fun card to make .

"Summertime means Unicorns": card & video tutorial feat. Stamp Anniething's stamp!

Hey everyone, it's Elina here and happy Tuesday to all!
I hope your day is off to a good start!
For today's post, I have a card to share featuring the
"Melanie-You're so Sassy" stamp set from
Stamp Anniething.
I have used this stamp before on a few cards and videos.
But I decided to tweak this image just a little.

Now if you follow my blog, you know that
I'm known for altering images from time to time.
So I decided to create a custom suit for this image.
It was more just playing around to see how it would look.
When I got down to the final look I knew I was on to something.

And luckily I was able to film the process.
You can check it out below, just click the video!

"Relax & Enjoy" card & video feat. Two Paper Divas stamp!

Hey everyone, it's Elina here ad happy T.G.I.F to you all!
I hope your Friday is off  to a great start!
For today's post I have created a summer card using the "Life's better in Flip Flops"
stamp set from Two Paper Divas.
Unfortunately the Two Paper Divas closed their shop a few months back
so this stamp set is no longer available for purchase.

I was fortunate enough to be a member of their Design Team
so I have a few of their stamps.
I was reorganizing my stamps when I came across this set being featured today.
I thought it would make a great summer themed card.
Luckily I was able to film the card making process
and you can check out the full tutorial below:
