Guest Designer | Noga Shefer

Hi crafty friends, I am so happy to guest designing again today for the amazing  Evelin T Designs !  

I am really excited about it.

I made a unique tag for this GD.

My tag  featuring the adorable Good Tidings to You . This set is just perfect addition to your stash!

To make this tag I die cut a piece of Bristol smoosh using a tag die.


to make the background I masked off  by blending spun sugar and tumbled glass distress oxide inks.


Next I stamped and colored the adorable images using copic markers.



Next I stamped a greeting from this set using gold powder and heat embossed it.


as a  final touch I heat embossed a few snowflakes using white powder.






I hope you enjoy the project I created and feel inspired to create!




Have a wonderful day! Noga

Christmas Fun...


Happy Hello Evelin T. Designs friends. Annette Allen here with you today and I am sharing a card I created using Warm Winter Wishes, All is Calm and Good Tidings to You stamp sets. Today I am mixing up all these fun stamps and they go so perfectly together. 


I colored these sweet images with Copic Sketch makers. The background was created using Ranger Oxide inks. But first I die cut a fun Christmas tree on masking tape. I wanted the tree to be bright in the background. 

I sprinkled a little green ink and water just on the tree and on the entire card I used Copic opaque. 


Some of the images I gave dimension and the rest I just glued directly onto my card base. Finishing up with stamping the sentiment. 

Another simple but fun card to create. yay for cute images... right?

Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Evelin T. Designs crafting!

Season Greetings...


Welcome Evelin T. Designs friends... Annette Allen here with you today. I created a snow filled card for you today and I created it using Evelin T. Designs: Warm Winter Wishes, Fun In The Snow and Good Tidings to You stamp sets. 


All of these sets mix so well together. That is why you need them ALL. 


I created a Ranger Alcohol ink background. You might say that does not look like alcohol ink well it is I just used water with it to get this softer look. Takes a while to dry but so worth it. 

The images are colored with Copic Sketch markers and I fussy cut around them. If you look closely I used a star embossing folder. 


I used some of the fake snow that you can find at most craft stores. These little critters are having fun in the snow. It really does not shake like a shaker card but the snow is staying right where I want it too. Yay for Christmas/Winter cards... Right?

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great day!

Warm Winter Wishes


Today I'm sharing a sweet holiday card featuring the Warm Winter Wishes stamp set (also sold at EH | SSS). It was hard to pick which images I wanted to work with since they're all so cute! Since I'm a big coffee/tea lover, I decided to colour the three cuties holding mugs.


I decided on a colour theme to highlight their scarves and mittens. Then I watercoloured each image strategically so they would look great sitting in a row with their winter accessories, enjoying their beverages.


To create an interesting background and to highlight these adorable images, I used two different dies to create a border with wonky scallops and stitching. Then I used the colours I used on the accessories to sponge the edges before stamping the sentiment.


I adhered fun foam to the back of the panels and used foam tape to attach the animals. To finish, I added a little white silk bow to the bunny's ear.


Be sure to visit my blog for a full supply list. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Guest Designer: Patricia Roebuck | Fun in the Snow Cards | Video

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.

Warm Winter Wishes



Hello and Happy Monday!  It's Amy here with a cozy winter card.  Have you seen the sweet Warm Winter Wishes set?


I teamed those sweet critters with some super vintage Basic Grey pattern paper that became my overall color palette.  My favorites are of course, the coffee drinking buddies.


I kept a large portion of my design white so that the dark pattern wouldn't take over the card.  I love plaid so this pattern is calling my name.


Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a fantastic week!

Bird on a Snowman - Warm Winter Wishes

Hello! Heather Hoffman here this morning with a card that I had SOOO much fun making! It was one of those cards that you picture and want to try, and love so much when it comes out like you were picturing in your head - so great when that happens! I combined two different stamp sets - Good Tidings to You and Warm Winter Wishes to create this little one layer scene!


As I was looking at my stamp sets, it occurred to me that the little birdie from Warm Winter Wishes would look super cute on the snowman from Good Tidings to You - so I did a bit of masking to add the birdie on the snowman.


Since I was already in the mode of masking by now, I went ahead and added a mask over both images, a circle mask around the entire scene, masked off a line along the bottom, then did some ink blending, finishing off with lots of white paint splatters for snow.


I let the paint dry, then stamped my sentiment along the bottom and added a bit of coloring with my Copic markers. One particularly fun touch is the bit of shadow added under the snowman with Warm Gray markers - I love how it makes the scene feel like it is a little more dimensional even with only one layer!


Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!!!

Guest Designer: Patricia Roebuck | Good Tidings to You Cards

Hello Everyone!  Thankful to be back again here on the Evelin T Designs blog sharing two cards using the Good Tidings To You stamp set.  Both of these cards use the same pattern paper in two different ways, and both of the images were colored with pencils before I had my cards in mind.



Pulling from the green scarf on this adorable snowy fellow, I used a dark green and an aqua green cardstock for my card panels.  To help my snowy friend stand out a little more, I layered him on top of a die cut pattern paper circle in a pale green with white dots.



For my aqua card panel, I used a dotted stencil with white ink to create a subtle snowy look, then stamped the snowflakes from the same stamp set with the same white ink first, then stamped again in an aqua ink a few times.  I love the softer look this gives stamped images.  You can see the effects of that even more with my stamped sentiment, ' Peace Love Joy' where parts of the black ink are softer in the areas where it is over the white inked background.  To add to the sentiment and my snowy friend being in winter bliss, I adhered a leafy white circle die cut around him. I finished him with Nuvo drops and gems.



My next card uses the negative leftover piece of pattern paper I used for the circle die cut under my snowy friend on the first card.  For this card, I layered it with more pattern paper, in a contrasting color.  



For the sentiment, I stamped and heat embossed in gold onto vellum layered under the circle.  To help the sentiment stand out from the plaid pattern paper, I punched a circle from a dark cardstock to layer under it.  Then just foam adhered my sweet cuddly friends and added a few Nuvo drops to finish.  That vellum adds such a nice soft look to this wintery card as well as a perfect spot for the beautiful sentiment.



Two cards using the same pattern paper and images colored before I had any idea how I would use them.  Love how inspiration comes from pre-stamped and colored images, and leftover pieces of pattern papers.  Hope this gives you some creative ways to use your stamped images.  Will be back for one last guest post later this month, sharing more holiday card ideas with a video!

All is Calm, All is Bright

Happy Monday, everyone! 

It's Evelin here today and I will be sharing my process video creating this card from our All is Calm set. This set features a single large stamp (with accompanying sentiments) that is so much fun to color. It is truly an art therapy piece!

I stamped the image using a light brown ink pad that I had from ages ago and then watercoloring it and used colored pencils to add depth and details.

For this card, I used cold pressed watercolor paper which is why you can see more textures on the colored image. Cold pressed watercolor papers are slightly textured by nature which is great for watercolors because it is more absorbent but creates a more textured finish when layered with colored pencils. Unlike smoother papers in which colored pencils can go on more smoothly.

So, depending on the style and feel of the card you want to create, you can choose different types of paper to try as well :)

I even used gold Stickles to add some 'bling' to the Christmas lights on the tree. Does anyone still use Stickles? haha... Most of the times, I just use what I already have in my stash, so I hope that it inspires you to 'shop' your stash before creating your cards too.

You can watch the video HERE on our YouTube channel.

Here is the stamp set used to create this card:


I hope you enjoy watching it and have a great day!

Fall | Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop


Happy Friday, everyone! It's Evelin here today with a very special post. We are super excited to join the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. Evelin T Designs is also proud to be a Super Sponsor for this Hop. You can link up your newly created coffee, tea and or cocoa projects for a chance to win many prizes, including a $25 Gift Certificate from us!

This Hop will run from Friday, Nov 1st - Friday, Nov 8th. Make sure to stop by the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog to find out all the details on how to win prizes.


Here is the card that I created for this Hop. I used the 3 little critters from our Warm Winter Wishes stamp set and did the no line coloring technique on them. I am kind of enjoying doing no line coloring currently. I like how it produces a softer image after I am done coloring as compared to stamping the image with black ink :)

I also have a short process video of how this card came to be and you can watch it HERE on our YouTube channel. In the video, I shared about the paper I used to stamp for no line coloring and how I like it.

I hope that you like this card that I made for this Hop and enjoyed the video as well.

This is the stamp set used to create this Shaker and No Line Coloring card:


Hope that you will join us on this Hop and I can't wait to see what coffee projects you will create!

Happy Hopping!

It's BOO-tastic!


On this eve of Halloween, I'm featuring It's BOO-tastic! (also sold at EH | SSS). I loved creating this masked one-layer card with these adorably spooky images. I started by stamping the images and creating masks for them. I stamped the pumpkins first on watercolour cardstock, placed the mask to protect it and stamped the rest of the images.


After stamping all of the images, I left their masks in place, cut a hill from masking paper and sponged the background with distress inks. Then I splattered the background with water and two distress spray stains. Then I removed the masks and used distress inks to watercolour the images.


If you are celebrating, I hope you all have a wonderful Halloween, whether you're trick-or-treating with your kids or having a party in your home or elsewhere.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Halloween Cuteness....


Happy Day Evelin T. Design friends... Annette Allen here with you today to share a little spooky but super fun cards.

Today I am creating with Evelin T. Designs: All Hallow's Cuteness, It's Boo-Tastic and Alpha Blocks stamp sets. I used two of the sets to create this first card,  It's Boo-Tastic and Alpha Blocks


The Alpha Blocks stamp set is great to use on any card. Just make your own sentiment and color whatever color you like. It is almost Halloween so I created this Happy Halloween card. Not spooky at all just cuteness with this adorable images... right?




I created a simple watercolor background and colored the images with Copic sketch markers. I also thought it would be cute to add some more stars so I used some Teeny Star dies. The stamp set does come with some stars too if you don't have a die of stars. I wanted to use glitter paper that is why I went with the die. 

You can buy all three of these sets at Evelin T. Designs.


Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great day!
