Vellum + Oxide Inks = Marble Effect

Hello Friends today I want to share with you a very cool technique with Oxide Inks and Vellum to create the look of Marble, it looks awesome!


I started with two Vellum pieces (you will need a thick vellum for this technique), I first put a little of  Broken China in my Ranger Mat and I added a little bit of water (you want the ink to the thick), and smooshed the Vellum into the Oxide Ink (I did not add more water to the piece) I only added the oxide ink and dry it with a heat gun, I did the same thing with the Wilted Violet and Cracked Pistachio inks in the parts I thought it needed.  When I finally got the look I wanted... "this next step is important" I flip the vellum piece and used the back of it for my card.  It looks great just like marble.

I used one of the vellum pieces for my card base and one to stamp the flowers from the beautiful Alternew Adore You Stamp Set. I stamped most of the flowers in the set with VersaMark ink and added Gold Embossing Powder.  I hand cut them and ended with lots of flowers to work with.

I  assemble the cards with the beautiful flowers and added the Postage Stamp Elle-ments die in black cardstock to frame both cards.  For the sentiment I used  MFT Label Maker Sentiments Stamp Set with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.

I finally added Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix, this cards look so elegant that you can use them for many occasions. Here are some closer looks to the cards.  Oxide inks are very vibrant, but with this technique you can get a more soft look to them.

I hope you enjoyed my little technique and can give it a try, thank you so much for stopping by today have a wonderful day!!!

Monster Carnival

Hello Friends Waleska here with a very fun and colorful card! The cute Monsters from the Monster Carnival set are so much fun and can be used for many occasions, can color them however you want...I love to use them in my cards!


I with a top folding card, I score a line in the center of the front panel to create another fold in the middle for a fun card design, I learned this fun design from the great Jennifer Mcguire. 

After that I die cut the Ferris Wheel die from gray cardstock, and for the rest of the elements I used red and aqua cardstock, I also used a brad so that the Ferris Wheel can move (how fun is that).  I then color the half front panel with yellow ink and for the back of the card I used a sun rays stencil with red ink.

I color my favorite monster from the 8 monsters that this stamp set has with markers in the same color combination of yellow red and aqua.  To embellish the card I added Nuvo drops in color
caribbean ocean and CDD Fall Harvest Sequins.  I stamp the fun sentiment inside the card for a surprise!

I hope you liked my card and be inspired to use different folds in your cards for a more fun effects!
Have a great day!

Slider Cards

Hello Friends Waleska here with another Summer Card for you, I love the Flamingo Floatie Stamp Set from Neat and Tangled, in the minute I saw this cute girl I knew I needed to use it on a Pool Party Summer Card.   


I wanted to create a pool background for the girl to be floating, so I found this technique in youtube let me share it with you because in my opinion it makes a very cool water look.

I started with a background fully colored with Distress Oxide Ink Peacock Feathers (which is my new favorite) after that I used a crumpled ball of Aluminium Foil I sprayed with water and pat down the paper with it to add the water texture to the background, and dry it with a Heat Tool.

I did the second background with two of my favorite Oxide Ink summer colors Fossilized Amber and Worn Lipstick (this two blend so well together) I created the slider elements with the lawn fawn slide over dies and double Scotch Foam Mounting TapeI color the cute girl with markers and added the water splashes in the same color as the water.

This cards were so much fun to create, I hope you give the water effect idea a try!

BE-YOU-TIFUL Mermaids/ Ellen Hutson Mix it Up Challenge

Hello Cardmakers out there! I want to share with you a BE-YOU-TIFUL Mermaid card for the Ellen Hutson Mix it Up Challenge with Lawn Fawn. 


For this card I started with the background I used Oxide Inks in colors Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and Faded Jeans, I have to say this colors are perfect for Ocean backgrounds.  I added Versamark ink and Ranger Holographic Embossing Powder to the hole background.

It looks very beautiful, after that I die cut the Ellen Hutson Be-You-Tiful word die six times to have a raised look, and color all the mermaids in the same color combination for the border I used the Gina Marie Designs Wonky Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I love the sparkling look of this card so I added more sparkle to the hair, top and tail with the Ranger Bullet embossing ink pen.

I hope you enjoyed my card today and can give this idea a try of making a very sparkling card! I think there is never to much sparkle in a card hahaha!

Hello Friends It is Monday... my kids are in school again... and I miss them.... yes.... but, I am so happy I have time again to create! I made this card for the current Lawnfawnatics Challenge #8 Summertime Fun! I made a very funny little scene that reminds me to the Finding Nemo movie... with the big Sharks and the small fishes! What can be  more fun on Summer than a Party!!!


I used Oxide inks in colors Broken China and Faded Jeans to create the ocean color. I used a Stencil I made with the Silhouette Cameo for the waves and create the effect by spraying water to the stencil... It looks awesome when dries! I added Nuvo Crystal Drops-Morning Dew to create bubbles the little fish is from the Fintastic Friends stamp set and the party hats, presets and cake are from Party Animal stamp set! I looove Lawn Fawn Stamps, I would never stop saying how much I appreciate a company that makes stamps that coordinate so well you can use them for many occasions and you can mix and match! They are absolutely my obsession!

For my cards today I used three of the new digis: Patriotic Elephant, Liberty Bird and Freedom March with the same kind of stencils and color combinations.

For my first card I used the Outdoor Landscape die to create the ground, with a stencil I made with the Silhouette Cameo, I color the Sunburst with Festive Berries Distress Ink and added the little stars from the Ferris Wheel die. I color the rabbits with markers and added the sentiment, finally I cut the scene with the Fancy Frame die.

For the rest of my cards I did another Sunburst Stencil and color them with Festive Berries Distress Ink, I added the smallest inside circle die from glitter paper and glue the Festive images.  For more sparkle I added little stars.  The Freedom sentiment goes perfect for the occasion and I use the Fancy Frame die to finish my cards.

I hope you can be inspired to create some 4th of July projects with this Amazing Digital Stamps!  The blue, red and white colors look so vibrant I just love the color combination!
