Make Waves

Hello everyone! {creative chick}, Jenn Shurkus here and I am wicked excited to be guest designing for Evelin T Designs this month! For those who don’t know me, I am a part-time mermaid and live on Cape Cod in MA. I am only 5 minutes from the beach, and I spend a lot of time there (brushing up on my mermaid skills 😉 )

So, it was only fitting for my first card to share with you be a mermaid card! Even better that this is a “purr-maid” as I have 3 kitties who keep me company in my studio.

For this card I used the Under the Sea: Merfriends and the Under the Sea: Background stamps. I did some no line watercoloring with Distress Inks on Distress Watercolor Cardstock.

First, I stamped all the images with Antique Linen Distress Ink. Then I proceeded to color them in with various Distress Ink colors. It’s so fun how the stamped line will take on the property of the Distress Ink color that you are painting it with. Some of the items were stamped directly onto the background, while some were stamped on another piece of Distress Watercolor Cardstock and fussy cut out, then added to this underwater scene.

I love creating cards with kitties, and I often color them to look like one of my boys. But this time I decided to color this cutie a soft brown. Shhh… don’t tell my kitties ok? I absolutely LOVE this sentiment “be a mermaid and make waves” – such a fun message of encouragement!

Finally, I also added a touch of chunky glitter here and there a long the sea floor as I often do. I hope you enjoy this card, and it inspires you to create something! I invite you to pop on over to my site today where I am sharing another card with some Evelin T Designs goodies and I will be back next week with some more inspiration! Have a fabulous day!

Cute Is Just My Cover

Hello Crafty Friends! I hope everyone is having a fantastic Wednesday! It’s Marie (@marneymakesart) back again for another card share! Today I am very excited to share my completed card using Evelin’s digital stamp called “Cute Is Just My Cover” I fell so in love with this image because it has everything I love… Adorable Peek a boo bunnies, mushrooms, and lush greenery! Taking all this whimsical cuteness, I decided to make a simple hello card against a night time backdrop. First off, I printed my digital images on low opacity so I could achieve the “no line coloring” look.

Colored Image Vs. Non colored image printed with low opacity

coloring this image was so much fun! When working with digital images, color pencils are my favorite! My preferred pencils are PolyChromos By Faber-Castell. They are very creamy in a non waxy way and blend beautifully. I had a lot of room to work within the mushroom image so I wrote the word Hello Inside it as my main sentiment and colored it in as I would the mushroom dots .

When I was brainstorming how I would put together my card, I wanted to have a scene that was rich with vibrant greens! That’s when I remembered that I had Evelin’s Stamp set called “Best Friends Fur-ever” In that set there is an image of lush leaves and bushes that Was absolutely perfect for my scene! I stamped it out twice using No line coloring ink. Now my main mushroom image would be surrounded by green on both sides complimenting the red. For the night time background, I used Distress Oxide inks. These inks are an absolute staple in every craft stash! Ink colors used include: dusty concord, seedless preserves, mowed lawn, forest moss, and chipped sapphire.

When I completed my scene, I added some gold and white stars to give it that starry sky finishing touch. I absolutely love how this card turned out! I can’t wait to send some snail mail soon!!

A Halloween Story

I’m so excited to share this card with you because it turned out exactly how I had hoped it would! I had this lovely idea of a girl reading a spooky story and her interpretation of the story is brought to life in the vision above her.

I made this card by stamping images from Best Friends Fur-Ever and All Hallow’s Cuteness, then creating masks for them. I used a retired Quotables Die (alternates are listed on my blog) to create the separation between reality and fantasy. Then I used a Cloud Stencil to sponge the background.

After the background was completed, I sprayed water droplets on the top panel and removed the masks. Then I watercoloured the images with distress inks and adhered the two panels to the card base. To add mystique, I used Iridescent Stars on both panels.

Narwhal HELLO…

Happy Monday Evelin T Designs friends. Annette Allen here with you on this fine Monday and I am sharing a card created using the newly released UNDER THE SEA: NARWHAL stamp set. Don’t you just love the new release?

I colored these adorable images with Copic Sketch markers. For the background I used a background created using Ranger alcohol inks and water. With a couple of fun die cuts I am ready to put my card together.

Piecing the card together is sometimes the fun part. I adhered the colorful background on my card base but first added some pretty designer paper on the sides. I wanted the pink to stand out just a bit more so this was my solution. Next I added these cute die cuts and finishing up with my colored images from the UNDER THE SEA: NARWHAL stamp set. I used foam adhesives to give it some dimension.

You can get your crafty hands on new release HERE. Make sure to check out all the inspiration from the sneak peeks we did at the beginning of the month.

Have a wonderful day.

Thanks for stopping by!

Welcome to Evelin T Designs

Hi and Welcome to the first post here on Evelin T Designs! I’m Evelin Tee, designer and owner of Evelin T Designs and I am so glad you are here.   I grew up in sunny Malaysia and moved to Southern California with my husband in 2012. We have a darling boy and are expecting another baby boy this May 18th. Drawing and creating has always been close to my heart and it has truly been a blessing that I was given the opportunity to design stamp sets for a few amazing companies since 2014.

With the encouragement and support from my husband and a dear friend whom I also call a mentor, I finally made the decision to launch my designs through my own company.  Our mission is to “bring Joy through stamping”. Personally, stamping has brought me much joy since I discovered card making back in 2008 during my time in the corporate world. Through card making, I have ‘met’ and developed some amazing friendships with crafters around the world which in turn, opened up opportunities for me to design stamp sets and now, designing for my own company.

And as for our logo, it is handwritten by me and it’s a way of reflecting how I would like to be as personal as I can with my products to all of you, throughout the whole process of it all. To me, this is a very personal and intimate journey and I am so glad I get to share it with all of you.
