Hi everyone it's Elina here & welcome to my blog!

to traditional embellies.

"Punny" Valentine's Cards Tutorial!

Hi everyone it's Elina here & welcome to my blog!
I hope your day is going well.
For today's post, I created a few handdrawn cards perfect
for Valentine's day.
I kept the drawing style pretty simple &
but you can recreate these cards using similar
stamp sets.
For the sentiments, I found a font style I liked &
 replicated it on the cards.

 I think they turned out cute!

 I think the cactus is my favorite!
Using the G40 marker to create the striping 
came out cool.

 Love the Coffee & Donut!

Who doesn't love Bread & Butter?! 


And lastly, the perfect couple Peanut Butter & Jelly!
I'm partial to strawberry in my PB & J .
I've never been a fan of grape.


I hope you enjoyed these cards & video!

Memo Board Re-Do: Home Deor Tutorial!

Hey everyone it's Elina here & welcome to my blog!
I hope your Sunday is off to good start!
Today's post features a project I created using
an original image handdrawn by me.
My husband purchased a few memo boards
from Hobby Lobby that were on clearance.
The cool thing is the cork board sits in
a triangular frame.
They were pretty plain looking so 
I grabbed one for myself to re-do.

Click on the video below for more details...

 I'm pleased with how it turned out.
Now I can keep track of future video ideas, cards I 
want to work on or new techniques I want try.
I can jot them down and pin it to the board.

I love how the image turned out as well.
I purchased a set of Prismacolors from A.C. Moore
and have been experimenting with them.
Currently I use them to enhance the coloring of images.
I am still working on using them alone 
but with all things it takes some practice.

As for the image, I have also been working on my drawing
and this is one of the first images I drew.
I love her expression and she looks to me like she's forgotten something.
So for now I'm calling her "Oops I Forgot"
Chibi Girl.


I hope you enjoyed this project & video!

Thanks for watching & enjoy the rest of  your Sunday!

Distress Oxides + Stencil= A Quick & Easy Valentine's Day card!

Hey everyone it's Elina here & welcome to my blog!
I hope your Tuesday is off to a good start!
Today's post features a Valentine's Day card I made
using a stencil & Distress Oxides.
It's funny that I have more Distress Oxides than Distress Inks.
At first I wasn't really sold on this product till
I tried it out for myself.
I'm pleased with how easy they are to blend
plus the amount of coverage you get.
I have made a list of the colors I need to get
the next time I'm in Hobby Lobby.

Now I never tried the Oxide ink with a stencil
so this card is the first one I did.

 I kept the card design simple.
I love how striking the background is.

 This is a great card to mass produce.
I used "Picked Raspberry" & "Candied Apple"
but you can switch up the colors.

 I used my Gelly Roll gel pen in White
to mimic the look of the background on the wood veneer hearts.


I hope you enjoyed this card & tutorial!
