WFC-Nina-HeadshotHello everyone! Nina here again! Watch-It-Wednesday-square In this week's Watch It Wednesday, we're making some shrink film feathers! shrink film feathers closeup I thought I ordered clear shrink film but they turned out to be white... Well, it didn't stop me from having fun! :) Love, love that natural curvy look the shrink film adds to the feathers.

Supplies: Feather More Stamp Set, Petal Point Inkpads (7, 14)

Have you tried shrink film before? Isn't it fun?! Here are a few things I learned: 1. It is hard to stamp on the slippery plastic surface. Be sure to keep your hands steady and not push too hard. 2. Even though I used non-inkjet film, our chalk inks (stamp like dye inks) still worked. I tried rubbing on the colors after the feathers cooled and the colors didn't come off. 3. The colors will come off if you use a wet wipe. If you are making something that might get wet, you will need a sealer to seal the colors. 4. If you want to die cut a shape, die cut it before you stamp. 5. If you want to punch a hole for threads, punch it before you heat the film. Because the hole will shrink with your film, I recommend using a 1/8" inch or bigger hole punch.   Hope you can find time to create and make something today!

Hello everyone! It's Nina here with another Watch it Wednesday video for you! I stepped out of my comfort zone and played with some mixed media products. I have had the beautiful gelatos from Faber-Castell for a while. I've watched many videos about them and thought it was easy enough to try. Well, it took me a few tries to get the look I wanted for today's card. I had fun and will definitely try more later! nina-yang-gelato-thank-you-card

Hello everyone! Nina here with another Five for Friday post for you! Have you noticed the string art trend? Our design team member Kim Kesti sure did and requested that we include something string art related in our DT Mix Stamp Set. I played with the dotted heart stamp and some threads for about an hour to create a reference card for the future. stitched-heart-samples Before we get to the video, let's look at the 5 string art hearts that inspired my project today. 1. What inspired me to create a reference card: string art heart 4


2. What inspired the multiple layers on the first heart. string art heart 2


3. What inspired the diagonal stitches on the second heart. string art heart 1


4. What inspired the ombre effect on the second heart. string art heart 3
