We are MOVING and a SALE for you!

Hallo friends! Another Friday which means another blog post, new YouTube video and now, a SALE announcement for you as well!

Well, there are 2 reasons for this SALE. First off, we are moving across the state and we don’t want to carry all the products with us, if possible. The second reason is that I am discontinuing our photopolymer stamp line. I will be focusing on digital stamps moving forward. So this is your LAST CHANCE to get our stamps before they are all gone. I will be sharing tips and ideas using our stamp sets in future YouTube videos so you will have a fresh outlook on these stamps and also ideas to use them.

I am also giving away a SURPRISE GIFT PACK to anyone who shares details about this SALE. There are a couple of ways to qualify.

You can share it via:
1. Email (to qualify for the drawing, please include hello@evelintdesigns in the email. To protect privacy, use the BCC field and I won’t see any of the recipients’ emails), or
2. Social Media (If you share it via Instagram, please tag or DM me a picture of the post you shared.)

I will pick a random winner when we settled into our new place in October 🙂

The MOVING SALE is active now until Sept 25th, 2022 or while stocks last. So, HURRY!

After you are done shopping, do check out our YouTube video as well. This week’s cozy Art Vlog and chat session shares more details about my thoughts and plans for the future of EvelinTDesigns. See you there!

Happy Shopping! and Have a great weekend!

Drawing & Coloring a Totoro Pastry

Hi friends! I hope that the week has been good to you and that you are looking forward to this long weekend. We don’t have much planned but we do hope to get out into nature, much like what we do every weekend 🙂 Being out to hike breaks up the monotony of the week and it’s a great way to recharge as well. Although, there is a heatwave currently so, plans are still up in the air.

How about you? Do you have any plans for the long weekend?

I do love Totoro and can’t get enough of it!

This week’s Art Vlog is a cozy, chill session just chatting while drawing and coloring a Totoro inspired pastry. I hope you will click on the video link and enjoy some time with me and my art!

If you like the vibe of my channel, please do subscribe, give the video a thumbs up and share my video to friends so more can watch them. That will encourage me to create more content!

Thank you! *muacks*

Watercolor Stamping Technique

Hi friends, it’s Friday again and that means I have uploaded yet another video on my YouTube channel! Yeay!! Okay, so I know it’s only been my second week keeping up with my commitment to blog and upload videos regularly but in a way, I just want to give myself a pat on the back that I did keep my promise. Kinda like a self-encouragement to keep up with this effort.

This week’s video is about using watercolors to stamp. If you know me, I like to experiment with different mediums to stamp or create cards. I also like to share techniques that will inspire you to use the stamps/materials you already have in your stash. I use a lot of stamps I currently own as well… so, I am not super ‘on trend’ but I believe most techniques can be used for both older or newer designs. We don’t always have to run out and buy the newest item on the block… hehe.

For this card, I am using two stamp sets from Evelin T Designs – Evergreen Foliage and Take a Leap of Faith and watercolors from Schmincke and Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils. In this video, I shared the trials and error and how it feels to stamp with watercolor. Also, some random updates about life and how I sometimes change my idea midway while filming.. haha. I hope you will click to see how I created this card and if there are any critters or designs you would like to see me draw, I can also do that and offer it as a digital set on my website!

Stamping with Watercolor!

Art and Draw: Kawaii Mochi Stick

While drawing this, I learned that a mochi stick is a.k.a hanami dango

Last week, I shared a sketch and draw process video of me drawing a kawaii mochi stick a.k.a hanami dango (something I learned while drawing this illutration. Yeay me!). If you have not checked it out yet, I hope that you will… right after you watched this week’s video, of course! 😀

And I just want to let you know that there is a 25% OFF sale for ALL stamps in the SHOP. Just use code “BTS25OFF” when you check out to activate your savings!

And that’s it for this post. I can’t wait for the weekend and bring the kids hiking again. Do you have any weekend plans? Please let me know in the comments below.

Till next Friday. Take care!

Summer Shenanigans and Handmade Vinyl Stickers

I am still not used to waking the kid up for school…. I miss the slow mornings and long days together. R did ask if we could homeschool again so I don’t know, maybe the days of slow mornings may come again? We’ll see how he adjusts being back in school after being virtual the past 2 years. So far, he’s doing great and is reconnecting to a couple of friends he knew from 1st Grade.

Before writing this post, I was thinking, ‘darn, we didn’t really do much this summer. We didn’t bring the kids anywhere…’. But then, I sat down to look at the pictures and I realized that we did create a lot of memories. It might not have been fancy vacations out of state or overseas but we did spend a lot of time together as a family. We went to Legoland right before the start of summer break to escape the crowd. We also hiked, biked, swam (A LOT!) and we went to San Francisco and road tripped down the coast back to Orange County.

  • Golden Gate Bridge
  • Pier 39 San Francisco
  • Morro Bay
  • Santa Barbara
  • Newport Beach Back Bay Loop
  • Oso Park Mission Viejo
  • Natural History Museum LA
Clockwise from top Left: Seafood Platter, Grilled fish, McConnell’s ice cream, Fish & Chips

Oh, we also had some amazing food on our road trip. That grilled fish from Morro Bay is so delicious, I told my Hubby that I want to drive there just for another taste of it! Haha. Yes, it’s definitely worth the drive.

Turning my illustrations into stickers

Another thing that I did over the summer is to finally turn some of my illustrations into sticker designs! I was supposed to launch some vinyl sticker sheets and die cut vinyl stickers but my Silhouette Portrait did not cooperate. While I work on resolving that issue, I decided to launch some stickers that I can fussy cut. Hopefully the issue with the Portrait will be resolved very quickly and I can add sticker sheets to my SHOP.

Some of the 14 designs I have in my SHOP right now!

I hope you enjoyed reading my summer shenanigans and that you will check out my stickers. Oh, while you are at it, I am giving 25% OFF all clear and digital stamps with code “BTS25OFF

Till next time!

Discount, anyone?

evelin t designs stamps discount

Hallo friends! It’s been quite a while and in that time, I have stopped producing photopolymer stamps. It was a difficult decision but I was still a newbie in the crafting arena back in 2020 and the pandemic hit. I tried to negotiate with the manufacturer if we could reduce the volume that I needed to order because of the many uncertainties back then. They said no and then there was the issue of them extending the time required to produce the stamps.

So I made a difficult decision to stop designing and producing photopolymer stamps. I will concentrate on digital designs and things I can control for now, like vinyl stickers. Things I can produce from home and have a better control of the quality and quantity. But I do have a SALE of 25% OFF all existing stamps, if you are interested. I would like to think that my designs are evergreen so they are still applicable and will put a smile on your face (and your recipient’s face) if you use them! Just use code “BTS25OFF” during checkout for 25% off. Oh, this code is applicable for digital stamps too. So, go enjoy shopping and get a discount as well!

I will be back to share more about our Summer shenanigans. In the meantime, I hope you will get some stamps to create with. Head on over to the SHOP now and remember to use code “BTS25OFF

Till I see you next!

It’s Snow Much Fun! | Guest Designer Noga Shefer

Hi crafty friends, it’s Noga here today and I am so happy to guest design again for Evelin T Designs! I really enjoyed creating this sweet card 🙂

My card featuring the super adorable Baby, It’s Cold Outside . This set is just the perfect addition to your stash!

To make this card I die cut a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock using scallop border die. The  background was created  by blending tumbled glass distress oxide ink. I also heat embossed some snowflakes from Good Tiding to You using white embossing powder.

Next I stamped, colored with copics and fussy cut the sweet images.

Then I glued down the images and stamped my sentiment between the snowflakes and added plaid paper. I hope you enjoy the project I created and feel inspired to create!

Have a lovely day,
Noga

2020 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Happy Friday, friends!

Today we have a special post for you. We are participating in the 2020 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and Evelin T Designs is sponsoring two (2) $10 Gift Certificates. One for the Hop and one for the Flash Prize!

For this Hop, I am sharing a card I made with our Cozy Hedgehogs Digital Stamp Kit. This kit contains individual images as well as ready-to-print-and-color images. It is perfect for anyone who wants to build their own scene and also for those who wants to just print-and-color!

To create this card, I used one of the ready-to-print-and-color files. Firstly, I adjusted the printing to 12% opacity and used watercolor cardstock to print this image. I wanted the image to be lightly printed so that I can create no-line coloring effect.

Next, I applied watercolor washes to the whole image to create a background color. To add depth and details to the image, I used Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils.

Then, I used Posca paint pens to color the Christmas decorations. It is an acrylic paint pen so the color remains opaque on top of the watercolor. Finally, I applied Stickles to add glitter to the decorations. I like that all I needed to create this card was to print it out and cut it into size for coloring.

Coloring this was a much needed stress-reliever from the Silverado Fire evacuation and well, 2020 as a whole.

Fun News …

This Cozy Hedgehogs Digital Stamp Kit can be yours FREE with purchase.

For purchases above $75, you will receive five (5) Coloring Cards AND the Cozy Hedgehogs Digital Kit. Please add the Digital Kit into your cart and apply coupon code COZY2020 before checking out.

Winter/Christmas Release | Available Now!

Hello friends! We are super excited to announce that all of the 5 new stamp sets are now available and are shipping. You can find them in the NEW RELEASE section of the shop.

Here’s a re-cap of all the new goodies PLUS, don’t forget that you can add the Cozy Hedgehogs Digital Stamp Kit for FREE with your $75 order (use code COZY2020). You will get the Coloring Cards included for free with your orders above $60 automatically. This promotion is valid from today until November 11th or while stocks lasts.

I created some cards with the sets we debut yesterday.

My first card features hedgehogs from Be Merry. To create this card, I stamped the little tambourine playing hedgehog and the Christmas toadstool directly onto the white cardstock. Then, I stamped the hedgehog holding the music book on a separate piece of cardstock, colored him with colored pencils before fussy-cutting him out.

Next, I colored all the rest of the elements with colored pencils. Using the MISTI, I stamped the music notes and the sentiment ‘Be Merry’ directly onto the cardstock. After that, I added stickles to the Christmas lights around the toadstool. Finally, I used foam tape to pop the last hedgehog onto the card to create dimension.

For this next card featuring Winter Magic, I wanted to create a scene where a couple of critter pals are high up in the sky with the moon. Firstly, I placed all the stamps I wanted to create this scene on a piece of watercolor paper. Then, I stamped them one at a time using small acrylic blocks. Next, I applied masking fluid on all the stamped images to protect the images while I paint. After that, I used a flat brush to paint the night sky after the masking fluid is dried.

Remove the masking fluid after the watercolor is dry. You can use a hairdryer to hasten the drying process. Subsequently, I watercolored the moon, fox and penguin pals and the stars. Finally, I used colored pencils to add depth and dimension to the watercolored images. To complete the card and add sparkles, I used stickles on the stars and clouds.

BLOG HOP & GIVEAWAY details
