The second card has the title: "Photo at the beach". Used: SSS101614. And two Hero Arts background stamps plus CL931: oh happy day by Lia.


The third card has as title: "Summer Birthday". Used: SSS101614 and some Hero Arts background stamps plus CL039 and CL931.

Distress Ink Lifting

A while ago I watched one of Jennifer McGuire's awesome video's were she showed a fun technique wich she called : "Distress Ink Lifting".
I loved it to try this technique myself. And I have to say: it worked well!
So, this technique is recommended!
And here is my result.



I added some shine on the flowers, you can't see it in the photo, but it gives just that little extra.
I recommend a visit of Jennifers blog to see and hear her explanation of this technique:

Faux Metallic Stamping

Today I like to share a card I made with a technique seen on Jennifer McGuire Ink blog. It is called:" Faux Metallic Stamping".

You first have to stamp your image with Versamark ink and clear embossing powder. After heat embossed it you have to color the images with a Versamark pen. Then you add perfect pearls and whipe away the extras.


Doing so you get that metallic look!
Fun, isn't it?!

Sunny days

We enjoy some wonderful sunny days here in the Netherlands. Love it! And love ice cream. Couldn 't resist to make an ice cream birthday card!


Made the glass with ice cream using my Cricut machine. Then added the word "happy" cut from green glitter paper with a Simon Says Stamp die. The frame die is also SSS. And the stamped word too.
