Hey everyone! The cold I was dealing with turned into bronchitis - so I'm definitely moving slower than usual. Since card making/blogging/videos is my job and only source of income though I have to keep plugging ahead if I want to pay the rent (I only add that "disclaimer" as I end up with a bunch of comments and e-mails telling me to take a break as a lot of people still assume I do all this just as a hobby! Being self-employed like this means no paid sick days).
Anywho - I'm feeling better-ish at the moment, I was at least able to do the voiceover for this video. It took multiple takes and I spliced it all together to make it into one anyway lol!
I've had this MFT Too-Cute Turtles stamp set sitting on the top of my "to-use" pile for a while now, so I inked it up and stamped the images onto some Bristol Smooth card stock with Versafine Onyx Black ink and used Distress Inks to color them in.
I only used 3 inks for all the colors of the images - my go-to Distress Ink combo of Picked Raspberry, Mermaid Lagoon and Mustard Seed. I am loving the Tim Holtz Glass Media mat and having the white "palette" are on it means one less thing I need to pull out when I'm playing around with inks.
I did ink smushing with Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Inks to create my background and used multiple MFT Die-namics sets to create my scenes for the cards.
I finished off the inside of the cards by stamping the turtles with Twisted Citron Distress Oxide and the sentiments with Versafine Onyx Black ink and that was it!

I get asked a lot about where to purchase the supplies I use in my videos and blog posts. I list all the supplies I use at the end of my posts (below) or in the description box directly below my video on YouTube. If the products have little icons below the image it means there's more than one place it can be purchased. You can hover over the icons and it will tell you what store that link will take you to. Compensated affiliate links used when possible at no extra cost to you. Affiliate linking is what keeps my blog and YouTube channel up and running and enables me to work from home with my kids! I appreciate your support more than words can say!
I occasionally receive product for free from stores/manufacturer with no obligation on my part to use/review - I only use and share what I personally love. Everything else I purchase myself!
