Hello Evelin T Friends! I am still a non-essential employee and hoping work will be back soon. But I feel like even though we are having to stay home, I feel like I’m maybe trying to go through the checklist of to-do’s to make everything feel more normal. So the other day I went and sat outside by myself and had some quiet time, and then came inside to do some journaling. Even though I love Bible journaling, I tend to do more of it in devotionals like this one from Illustrated Faith.
I started by adding one of the leafy images from the Fun in the Snow stamp set all around in different directions using Staz-On ink, then I continued to add more from that stamp set as well as Coffee Art and Good Tidings to You.
For the stamping of ‘choose,’ I trimmed the ‘choose coffee’ sentiment from the Coffee Art stamp set to be able to create repetitive stamping. This is more like art journaling as well, so it is playtime I needed plus quiet time. I started playing with that heart swirl latte image from Coffee Art to give it a completely different look. After the stamping was done, I added watercolors to the images and to the area to handwrite journaling. Then I finished this off with adding stickers and die cuts.
Hope everyone is well and hopefully this inspires you to also have some quiet, creative time for yourself.
Don’t you just love when you start to create a card and well you have more then one idea so you just go with it. So today I am sharing two cards just because these ice skaters are just too cute and fun to create with.
I stenciled the background and layered it with a sunburst die. The image is colored with Copic sketch markers. The image just comes to life with color… don’t you think?
I used some winter themed dies to create these fun backgrounds for these adorable ice skaters. Minimal coloring and and finishing up with stamping these fun sentiments. I added some dimension to the image and the sentiment using foam adhesives. As you can see all the Evelin T. Designs stamps mixing very well together. So go crazy and have creating.
Thanks for stopping by today. Many Blessing for this New Year.
Merry Christmas Eve to those of you who celebrate! I’m here sharing some last-minute gift tags because how many of us calculate correctly and have enough on hand? It’s always better to have extras for those surprise gifts. Plus, they’re fun to make and can easily be turned into a card!
I watercolored images from Good Tidings to You and Fun in the Snow , using Simon Hurley create ink pads and I also stamped the snowflakes with the same inks. These inks are equally fantastic for stamping and watercoloring, which I love, and you can find all of the colours listed in the supply links below.
I used a Spectrum Noir sparkle pen on the animals’ red winter accessories and banners. The banners are from Evelin’s set called Framed for Winnie & Walter and they make awesome shaped tags. In the close-up, you can see how shimmery it makes the image. It’s so pretty and festive!
All of these sets mix so well together. That is why you need them ALL.
I created a Ranger Alcohol ink background. You might say that does not look like alcohol ink well it is I just used water with it to get this softer look. Takes a while to dry but so worth it.
The images are colored with Copic Sketch markers and I fussy cut around them. If you look closely I used a star embossing folder.
I used some of the fake snow that you can find at most craft stores. These little critters are having fun in the snow. It really does not shake like a shaker card but the snow is staying right where I want it too. Yay for Christmas/Winter cards… Right?
Hi Everyone! This is my last post as a guest here on the Evelin T Designs blog. Thank you so much Evelin for having me and to everyone for letting share! The holidays are coming quickly. I thought of a background using the Fun in the Snow stamp set with watercolors that is not only fun and whimsical but quick to mass produce! And if you have a little extra time to get creative with your holiday cards, I’ll share another card using the same stamp set. I also have a video to share how these cards came together at the end of this post.
I love the playfulness of the Fun in the Snow stamp set. Each one of these images shows personality and movement. Perfect for a background. I created a background with the adorable and silly penguins and the beautiful bear gracefully skating along. All I did was stamp several card panels with Staz On ink, then added messy watercoloring on top of them. I created four cards using different cardstock panels under each one before adding to my card base. You can change the look of them by using different cardstock colors. To finish them, I added some Nuvo Drops.
For this next card, I did not use a card panel. This is a single layered card base, except for the silver cardstock die cut frame I adhered around it. Before adhering that though, I stamped this silly penguin in black ink. Then created a mask for him to create a wintery swirl to go along with the motion of him gliding along the ice.
You can see more on the video how this came together. I placed the mask over the penguin, then used Nuvo Drops and Glitter to create swirls using a popsicle stick. Lifted the mask after it dried a bit, and colored the penguin with pencils.
For the sentiment, I stamped the floral images from the stamp set to peek under my die cut silver frame to bring attention to my stamped sentiment at the top. I finished this cutie with gems and sequins.
This card was not complicated to make, but definitely has a few more steps with the masking, coloring and the die cut frame, but still simple enough you could mass produce a set to give out for the holidays. Thank you so much again Evelin for having me and to everyone for letting me share! You can watch the video below to see how these came together or watch it in HD on my YouTube Channel here.
Hello! Kelly here with a card idea that you can completely customize for what you need!
One of my favorite little critters from Evelin’s winter stamp sets is this adorable ice skating bear from Fun in the Snow. The way his arms are open wide, and his proud expression, makes it seem like he is showing off his skating abilities. When this set was released, I created a card with the heart doodle by the bear’s skate to make it look like he had just finished skating a little heart in the ice. As we were creating that card, I had an idea that I could really make it look like he had just finished skating whatever design or word I wanted. So that’s what I did here!
I sketched out my “noel” greeting in pencil first, and then went over it with a felt-tipped pen. I think this would be a cute idea for customizing a card with a person’s name, the city they just moved to, or even their favorite sports team (use the team colors in the bear’s scarf!) So many different possibilities!
The “ice” is made from smooshing ink onto a stamping block, adding a few drops of water, and then placing the cardstock in the ink. It’s always a surprise what you get!
The “from OUR home to YOURS” sentiment is from All is Calm and could really be used on any holiday card you create.
Only a few days until Halloween, and then the holidays will really seem like they are just around the corner. Hope you’re collecting lots of ideas these past few weeks. I know I am!
Already Day 4 of our Sneak Week! I hope you are liking what you see so far
This fun little set we are sneaking today is called Fun in the Snow. Oh, how fun it is to ski and skate in the snow! Do you love to ski, skate or snowboard? I only recently discovered skiing and I love it! Can’t wait to get back on the slopes in the coming year.
I created a fun little interactive card with the little penguins and bears in this set. You can see a little penguin falling over and another skiing in this sneak… what other ‘actions’ do you think there are in this set? Please let me know using the comment form below
