Washi and coloring

Hello!

I’m playing with Paper Smooches stamps called Needle Little Love.

I love sewing and this stamp set just called my name when I saw it🙂 I colored the sewing machine and the heart with promarkers. To add more fun, I added a small piece of folded fabric and placed it closed to the needle part, like someone’s sewing🙂

I also added some washi tape on both sides of the stamped frame.

I used a sketch from Sketch N Scrap, Card sketch # 82.

Coloring with markers

Happy Saturday!

I have a quick share of a card using Love Cynthia stamp.

I stamped the main  image from two different sets and colored them with one of my favorite coloring mediums, the alcohol based markers, promarker and copic marker. I only have limited colors on these markers but I’m glad I’m able to use what I have and make the most of it. These markers are quite expensive especially the copics but I get by with my crafty coloring using only what I have. One doesn’t necessarily need to buy all the available colors in the spectrum to get you to coloring🙂

One thing I love about alcohol markers is that it blends nicely when you combine 2 to 3 colors and they also give vibrant colors.

I die cut the frame using My Favorite Things scallop die and additionally stamped some swirly vines on the sides.

I’m using a card sketch from CAS Colours and Sketches Challenge # 192.

MFT stamps and die – Card 2

Hello!

Just popping in quickly to share my second card for My Favorite Things Card Design Superstar 2016.

Print

You can find my first card entry here.

I totally forgot that I have this Die-namics Floral Fusion Cover Up die that I really haven’t used yet. Wow! That was bought sometime ago. I saw a card set before that used this cover up die and I made sure that time that I need to get this floral die. It’s a shame that I haven’t played on it yet until now🙂

I’m happy to use it in today’s card background. I used it to die cut a subtle designed paper, with a hint of soft color outline.

Also, I had some coloring on my images, my gnome with watercolor and the fence and flowers with promarker.

I also placed a die cut vellum using MFT dies and placed it behind the images so they will not be lost in the floral die cut design on the base.

Note that you can click on the image for a larger view

MFT stamps and dies

Hi there!

My Favorite Things is running  the 2016 Card Design Superstar contest and I saw the current entries from MFT blog. There’s a lot of amazing card submissions and its so great to see so many ways one can do on a stamp set  :)  It will be closing in a few days but I’m taking my chance to share my take. I have nothing to lose right? It will always be fun.

I only have 3 stamp sets from MFT. One is the Santa set and the other the Pig and Gnome sets. I also have a very limited dies from MFT so I need to utilize whatever I have to create something fun for the challenge. One of the conditions is of course to use MFT stamps and dies only.

Print

So here’s my contribution. I used a combination of the 2 stamp sets I have (Pig & Gnome) to create a small flower-pot scene. I first partially diecut the 3 gnomes in 2 separate panels, colored them with promarkers then later layered them using dimensional adhesive.

I also stamped other elements like the palette, flower pots, snails and mushrooms.  Each and everyone is colored with promarker🙂 I only have the coordinating dies for the gnomes so for the elements from the pig stamp like the flower pots and palettes, I fussy cut them. I know it will take a bit more time cutting but I love fussy cutting too🙂

For my border, I used the wonky rectangles to add some accents.

You can click on the images to see them in bigger size🙂

Another closer look of the layering and partial die cutting I did on this card.

Partial die cutting and panel layers. There are 2 different white panels with the gnomes, one has the 2 gnomes and the other layer with 1 gnome partially die cut with the rest of the flower pots etc.

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #376 Color Challenge

Hiya!

If you’re coming from the Cupcake Inspirations blog challenge, Welcome🙂

I’m so excited being a Surprise Sweetie  for Cupcake Inspirations Challenge # 376. I’m happy to join you all and share my take in this week’s color challenge.

First up, I colored my image from Newton’s Nook Birthday Bash stamp set with distress ink pad. I recently purchased mini distress ink as I find them great for watercoloring.

I fussy cut the colored image after filling in the colors and also added a very light purple background color in the circle die cut.

For my card base, I added some texture by embossing some circles using my circle die cuts. I also put some sequins to complement the colors I used in the stamped image.

Thankful

Hello

It seems like the weather is changing already from summer to a more friendlier temperature. I can tell as its also around this time that I get a cold😦 Not really a cool thing but that will not keep me do another card today.

I used a card sketch from Pals Paper Arts, Sketch # 318.

My main image, farmer is from Paper Smooches. I colored him with promarker following some autumn colors. I used another stamp set to stamp the autumn leaves in the bigger panel and Thankful sentiment just to complement the season.

I also stamped the card base background with woodgrain background stamp from Hero Arts.

Sketch Challenge

Hiya!

Just popping in quickly to share my take in this week’s Sketch Challenge at My Favorite Things, Sketch Challenge # 298.

I used the stamps from You Gnome Me and die cut the images too with their coordinating dies. For coloring, I used my promarker and a bit of copics. I also used the square scallop dies also from My Favorite Things.

I’m into MFT stamps lately and I’m building my collection slowly when I get the chance to get new supplies online.

There’s a stamp sale currently at Ellen Hutson and bought new stamps from where else, MFT stamps🙂

So here’s my take

New “Love Cynthia” stamps

Hello!

Today I received my first set of stamps from Love Cynthia. I have been waiting for about forever to get hold of these stamps as all of the ones I really like are always out of stock. I finally got the chance when they went back on stock last month and took the opportunity to buy some goodies.

So what better way to make of today than to use one of the set into a card🙂

My card sketch inspiration is from Sketch N Scrap, Sketch # 81.

I first stamped the two doilies in the background in two different colors, then colored my images using promarkers and copics. I also diecut the frame from Mama Elephant dies and added some sequins and ribbon for texture.

CAS coloring and die cuts

Hello!

A clean and simple card using my new stamps from WPlus 9, Get Well Gang.

So many cute images in the set but for today I used the dog image. I colored him with copic and promarker then diecut him along with the mouse and a medicine bottle.

I also run an embossed wonky stitches though it doesn’t show much in the paper. I need to add another paper next time to emphasize the embossing.

For some color, I also added some colored dots and distress inks in the background.

I used a sketch from CAS Colours and Sketches, Challenge #190 Sketch. I flip the sketch with the curved on top rather than to the left.

Hello!

Just checking in quickly to share my take in this week’s (CAS)E this Sketch #189.

I used a word die cut ‘Hugs’ from Simon Says Stamp and I embossed the yellow card base with this medallion design embossing folder. Its so easy and I finish the card while I’m on the phone with a friend. Multi- tasking you know🙂
