Thanksgiving Place Cards feat. Gerda Steiner "All Cats" set!

Hey everyone it's Elina here & happy Tuesday to all!
I hope your day is off to a great start!
Today's post features place cards I made for my Holiday table.
Making place cards has become a tradition for a few years now.
Our table settings are pretty informal so it gives me leeway to come up
with cool designs.

So for this year's place cards I decided
to use the "All Cats" stamp set from Gerda Steiner.
I love this set & I have used it for a 
number of different projects.
You can check out the video below for all details...

Make sure to "SUBSCRIBE" to my channel
if you haven't already.

Here are a few close up pics:


I kept the design pretty simple.


I think the kitty turned out super cute.


I chose this image from the set because
of he sign he's holding.
It made it easier to stamp the names without adding
extra layers.


I hope you enjoyed this project & video!
Stay tuned for the start of my Holiday 2017 series this Friday!
You don't want to miss it!

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your day &

Fall Makeover feat. Julie Nutting's "Megan" stamp!

Hey everyone it's Elina here!
I hope you are having a wonderful Friday evening!
Today's post features the Julie Nutting
"Megan"stamp. 
I thought it would be cool to create a cute outfit for Fall.
Now anytime I decide to alter an image's outfit
I first stamp the image on scrap paper.
Then I draw how I want the outfit to look 
on top of the stamped image.
Next I refine the look of outline and cut it out.

From there I trace out the basic shape on the white card
or patterned paper.
I draw in any fine details I want to add, add color
and/or shading.
Lastly I stamp the image on white card & add the new outfit.
And voila! A new outfit for your image that fits matches up
perfectly.

Halloween 2017: "Wicked Halloween" Tutorial feat. Stamp Anniething!

Hey everyone it's Elina here & happy Friday to all!
Welcome to Part Eight in my Halloween 2017 card series!
Today's post features the "Melanie- You're Sassy" stamp set from
Stamp Anniething.
If you follow my blog, you know that the 
Wizard of Oz is one of all time fave movies.
So I thought it would be cool to create 
a card featuring the"Wicked Witch of the West".
I will admit she terrified me as a child but now
 I've grown to appreciate her complex character.

You can check out how I transformed the 
image by clicking the video below:

Here are some close up pics:


I love how this card turned out!
The "Flying Monkey" plushie is so cute.


The background turned out cool too.
I had to give the new Distress Oxide inks a try.
I've seen loads of videos using this ink but
I was surprised by how well it covered the paper.
It only took a couple of passes with the blending tool 
to achieve this look.

It also blends well with the regular Distress Inks.
I will be purchasing a few more of these Oxide inks!


I hope you enjoyed this card & video!
Stay tuned for the Finale of my Halloween 2017 series 
coming on Tuesday!

Thanks for stopping by & have a great weekend!
