"Thank You" Card Tutorial!

Hey everyone it's Elina here & happy Tuesday to all!
Today's post features a Fall inspired "Thank You" card
featuring an original image by me.
I also used a cool technique called 
"Ink Smooshing" to add color to my background.

Here are a few close up pics:

I love the warm colors of the background &
I think the flower turned out nicely.

I used a Sizzix stamp set from Jen Long for the sentiment.
The awesome part is I was able to get in Hobby Lobby on 
clearance for $2.15.

Fall Makeover feat. Julie Nutting's "Megan" stamp!

Hey everyone it's Elina here!
I hope you are having a wonderful Friday evening!
Today's post features the Julie Nutting
"Megan"stamp. 
I thought it would be cool to create a cute outfit for Fall.
Now anytime I decide to alter an image's outfit
I first stamp the image on scrap paper.
Then I draw how I want the outfit to look 
on top of the stamped image.
Next I refine the look of outline and cut it out.

From there I trace out the basic shape on the white card
or patterned paper.
I draw in any fine details I want to add, add color
and/or shading.
Lastly I stamp the image on white card & add the new outfit.
And voila! A new outfit for your image that fits matches up
perfectly.

I am pleased with how this outfit turned out.

Halloween 2017: "Wicked Halloween" Tutorial feat. Stamp Anniething!

Hey everyone it's Elina here & happy Friday to all!
Welcome to Part Eight in my Halloween 2017 card series!
Today's post features the "Melanie- You're Sassy" stamp set from
Stamp Anniething.
If you follow my blog, you know that the 
Wizard of Oz is one of all time fave movies.
So I thought it would be cool to create 
a card featuring the"Wicked Witch of the West".
I will admit she terrified me as a child but now
 I've grown to appreciate her complex character.

You can check out how I transformed the 
image by clicking the video below:

Make sure to "SUBSCRIBE"to my channel
if you haven't already.

Here are some close up pics:


I love how this card turned out!
The "Flying Monkey" plushie is so cute.


The background turned out cool too.
I had to give the new Distress Oxide inks a try.
I've seen loads of videos using this ink but
I was surprised by how well it covered the paper.
It only took a couple of passes with the blending tool 
to achieve this look.

It also blends well with the regular Distress Inks.
I will be purchasing a few more of these Oxide inks!


I hope you enjoyed this card & video!
Stay tuned for the Finale of my Halloween 2017 series 
coming on Tuesday!

Thanks for stopping by & have a great weekend!
