Checking in quickly to share these mini (3 x 3 in) cards. I used the Sweet Stamp Shop stamps that I have in my stash for a while. So glad to use them today.
I stamped the images and fussy cut each one of them. I then added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh for some glam.
I also stamped the envelope with the same stamps I used in the cards.
Excited to play at CASology: Week 135 – Mini.
I’m entering this card too in Less is More Challenge- Week 213, This Makes me Happy. Small, cute and whimsical stamps make me happy :)
And also to Simon Says Stamp, Simon Monday Challenge – No Rules.
Today I had the chance to play with watercolors. I bought Strathmore watercolor paper and Bristol paper the other day at our local craft store so I’m trying them out. Although Bristol can hold some water-coloring, it’s not as forgiving as the actual watercolor paper. Still I love both of these papers. I will try some other types of coloring using Bristol and will share that here too when its done.
For the professor, I used the Bristol while the rest are watercolor paper.
I use the card sketch from Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge, joining in February 22-28 Designer Drafts Challenge.
I don’t have the coordinating die for this stamp set so I fussy cut all the pieces to make this scene.

A quick and easy card using butterflies stamp set from Sarah. I’m sharing the same in Sarah Hurley365 blog so come and visit, and say hello there too.
I randomly stamped the butterflies using different ink pads that coordinate. More summery colors don’t you think?
For the sentiment I heat embossed the Happy Birthday using white embossing powder.
And the pretty butterflies..
My sketch inspiration is from Sketch Saturday # 349.
I’m also entering this card to ShowCASe Your Style, Challenge # 9, Birthday theme.
And Moving Along with the Times challenge, Pink/ Lilac and/or Butterflies. I have butterflies :)
Til then. Have a great weekend!

One thing I love about crafting is that it keeps my mind off some not-so-good feeling like I felt today. I’m thankful that I discovered this hobby as it keep my mind of the negativity some people sometimes bring.
So, on to the good side, I created a quick birthday card for Dad. His birthday will be coming up soon and I’m getting ready to mail this card early.
It’s a chance for me to use the die I bought before from Lil’ Inker Designs. They now have the first challenge called Monthly Meet Up Challenge and I’m glad to play along.
My card sketch inspiration is from Fusion Card Challenge and color inspiration Orange, Teal & Brown.
and my take to the challenge
I made 4 layer die cuts of the word Dad for extra dimension, looks like chipboard in real life. Love that.
That’s it for now and happy weekend!

Just popping in quickly to share my take in CAS(E) this Sketch # 109. Its been ages since I last played. I just wish there’s more hours in a day to craft.
I used Mama Elephant In My Heart stamp set & coordinating dies. Coloring is with promarkers as always :)
The strips are washi tapes that I purchased in Michaels when I visited Vegas few months back :)

Its too quiet around here yah? The first quarter of the year is the busiest time at work and crafting is taking a back seat (but only for a little while). My usual craft time that I kept mostly over the weekend is used up to either attend to more activities at work or left for myself to recharge for the next week ahead.
Anyhow, I’m sharing here a shaker card using beads that I found in my local store (its been in my stash for as long as I can remember) and I’m glad to use it this time. You can find my first shaker here.
The beads are much bigger in size compared to the ones I see online that is called microbeads. Mine is much a bigger size as those.
I’m sharing this card also to SarahHurley365 blog today so check them out there too.

I had the chance to play with my stamp win from Mama Elephant. I received this stamp for sometime now and I’m so glad to use it this time.
I colored the little girl image with promarker and fussy cut her and the teeny tiny turtle as well. I used pattern papers from Lawn Fawn. Did you noticed lately I’ve been putting sequins in every card I make? I think that’s my latest addition in card making. I so love the sequins I got from Pretty Pink Posh :)
