I’m so excited to bring you this video combining the Floral Surprise and Positivi-Tea stamp sets! I came up with this idea during release week and I wanted to play with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, which have sat unused for too long.
I started by die cutting the tags and stamped part of the Floral Surprise image on the bottom right hand corner of each tag, using a different part of the image on both tags to show some variation.
I also stamped three images from Positivi-Tea that would be fussy cut and popped up with large glue dots. The Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers were so easy to use and I love their vibrancy! I will definitely play with them more. To finish, I layered the bristol tags on kraft cardstock, added black hemp cord and pearls.

Today, I’m sharing a Chinese New Year card with a video tutorial. I love making Chinese New Year cards every year, especially if I have the appropriate animal stamps for that zodiac year. As it turns out, this Saturday, January 25, 2020 is the start of the Rat Year and I’m a rat! My husband and son are also rats so this is a big year for us.
I stamped the images on to a watercolour panel. I also created masks for them so I could sponge the background before watercoloring the images with distress inks. After all the colouring was done and the panel dried, I heat embossed the sentiment with gold tinsel embossing powder.
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.
