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:

Here are a few close up pics:

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 .

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.

For today's post I have created a summer card using the "Life's better in Flip Flops"

so this stamp set is no longer available for purchase.

I was fortunate enough to be a member of their Design Team

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:

"Miss you like Crazy" Card & Video plus an update!

Hey everyone, it's Elina here and happy Friday to you all!
I know it's been a while since I posted and my apologies for that.
But it's like they say, "Life gets in the way", which in my case is true.
Plus it doesn't help that we now have an above ground pool.
Which basically means that I have been spending lots of time relaxing and enjoying the H2O. 
A big Thanks to my subscribers for sticking around, you guys are awesome.
Well now that I have updated you all on my situation, let's get to today's card and video.

For today's card, I used the Gerda Steiner "All Cats" stamp set.
I've used this set a couple of times and I love the super adorable kitties.
I especially love the grumpy kitty and I thought I would be cool to use him on a "Miss You" card.
Since it's summertime I decided to create a beach scene for this lil guy.
And the best part is I was able o film the process for you to check out.

Click below for the full tutorial:


Here are a few close up pics:



Isn't he adorable?!
I love his grumpy expression!

Stamp Anniething's Theme Week Challenge: "Have a Great Day" card!

Hey everyone it's Elina here and I hope you are enjoying your evening!
If you checked out my blog last Friday
I shared a tutorial on my channel featuring Stamp Anniething's
stamps from their April release.
Well I finally got around to making a card using
one of the images from that tutorial
"Molly-Sunflower".
Which was perfect timing to coincide with Stamp Anniething's
Theme Week Challenge, "Flower Power".
You can check out the tutorial, if you missed it.


And here's the pics for you to check out:



I layered the image panel on a sheet of black card stock
cut 1/4" larger.
For the sentiment I used a stamp set
from Inkadinkado and Staz On Jet Black ink.
Lastly, I adhered it to a white card base.


I hope you enjoyed this card!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great evening!
