Here I go....
You use a lot of white raised/3d dots on your layouts. Could you please tell me what you use to do that? What product is it?
Well, I'm using Puffy Paint by Tulip for this.. This 3d paint which works perfectly on your creations. Just make little dots with the tip of the little Puffy Paint bottle and let it dry.... (I know that on the back of the bottle it's stated that you have to heat it with your heat tool.. but that didn't work out for me at all.. so I just let it dry this way. ) I've chosen Puffy Paint above regular 3d paint since the Puffy Paint is less luiquid. I bought this paint at Michaels and Target during one of my trips to the US.. but I'm sure there are different onlines stores selling these as well. The other little white ‘donut’ dots that I’m creating on the borders of the pictures are made with a regular white marker (like a Unibal Signo).
I was wondering what you use to make your circles, they always look so nice…
Well, I'm using the Orbis Circle cutter for this. For me this works perfectly.. but I know some people are having problems using it (IF you decide to buy one..remember to turn the wheel counter clockwise).
Your cards are so beautiful. What do you do with them when they're finished? Have you ever thought of selling them on Etsy?
Right now I'm just keeping them in little baskets in my scraproom, and some of them are always displayed in my house. Besides sending some out to friends they just stay inthere....don't know what to do with them (haha). I’ve never thought of selling my cards on Etsy.. but I see lots of cardmakers doing that nowadays…No idea if people would be interested in my creations at all...
I'm just wondering about a product you use. It looks like thread, but thicker.
The 'thread' I'm using is regular embrodery floss/thread by DMC.. This works perfectly on pages and cards.. it's so easy to attach someting to your creations with this stuff. It comes in all kinds of colors so you can make the thread match to your pages easily.
I was wondering what templates you use for your flowers?
You can find the templates in THIS post. Just print them out on cardstock and create your own templates to use over and over again.
What are the little flowers you're using on your cards and other creations?
These are mini Prima flowers.. they come in different bottles.. but I prefer the "Sweet n Sassy" ones. They're so easy to add everywhere (yup.. totally addicted.. haha..)
What are you using to create the small 'holes' in the patterned paper and cardstock?
Well, it's really really easy.. I'm using my sewing machine without thread for this!! No.. it's not my idea.. I totally 'stole' this idea from my sweet friend Peggy.
What kind of glitter are you using on your projects?
Well, I'm totally addicted to Doodlebug Sugarcoating Glitter nowadays, it comes in several colors and it's so easy to use.. I just need to add a little glitter on every project.. haha
What adhesive are you using to adhere the glitter onto your creations?
ZIG 2-way glue is my perfect solution for this!!
Where do you get your inspiration from?
Well, I really don't know... when I'm in the scrappy mood I just sit behind my desk with some pictures that inspire me in front of me.. Then I start cutting and creating different shapes, I add some embellishments and when I'm done I start adhering everything onto the paper. I do love to do some blog-hopping once in a while so I definitely get inspiration from all of your work as well!
What do you use to make some details on your creations look 'shiny'.
I love to use Diamond Glaze for this. Just cover the object and let it dry for several hours to get your shiny look (it's also fun to add some regular glitters to the Diamond Glaze to give it a glittery look)
What kind of tool are you using to create the embossed details on your creations?
I love love love to use the Cuttlebug Machine.. never thought I could love a tool this much! The Swiss Dott embossing folder is my favorite at the moment... but there are so many more cool embossing folders.
What's your favorite Manufacturer?
Uhm.. I have so many.. where do I start? Besides KI Memories, Scenic Route, American Crafts, Little Yellow Bicycle, Making Memories, Piggy Tales, Queen & Co and Sassafras Lass I love to use every single brand that makes colorful and fun papers and embellishments...I just grab whatever I like...haha..
Where do you buy your goodies?
Well, I don't have a particular store I like to buy my goodies at.. I just buy things when I see them.. online or in regular Scrapbook Stores.. it just depends in what kind of mood I am.. haha.. Do you have any suggestions? I always love to discover new online stores with yummie goodies.
I hope I was able to answer some of your questions.. if not.. just let me know..
I'll leave you all with a little card that I've just finished.. I was totally inspired by a post on Melanie her blog to use some of my scraps this past week (thanks girlie!)
Wishing you all a great weekend (and a Happy Halloween!)
