Ahoy there!

Happy Sunday!

Just popping in quickly to share my take in my favorite card challenges. I used the nautical stamp set from Sweet Stamp Stamp and colored it with watercolor.

For the red strip, I stamped it using Mama Elephant Basic Border set. I had a mistake in stamping another diagonal strip above the red so I used a yellow patterned paper instead to save the card base.

I added some sequins to add some texture and dimension. I also added some shine in the banner using Wink of Stella clear glitter pen.

Stamping Background

Happy Saturday!

I’m sharing a card project with background stamping using Sarah Hurley Special Edition stamp – Garden Fairy by Clare Brown. 

I used the flowers and butterfly to fill my background. I also used a mini flamingo stamp from a previous kit from Sarah.

I’m joining in Runway Inspired Challenge #86, Sophie Theallet. My first time to join in fact.  I used the colors as my inspiration in my card project. The purple is the main color in the model image so I used also purple sequins as accents and add texture to the whole card.


I used Paper Smooches stamp, the We Adore You stamp set. I love those owls which I colored with promarker.

Happy Sunday!

I whipped a very quick easy clean and simple card using stamps and colored pencils for coloring. I used three different stamp sets to create this card, love when that happens 🙂

Hi there!

I had the chance to play around some watercoloring last night which I made to a card today.

I used the Sarah Hurley’s Special Editions Stamps – Cupcake by Jaine Drake. I used this stamp in several occasions which apparently is one of my favorite stamps 🙂

I  used Prang watercolor for my cupcakes and distress inks for my  background. I then stamped the birthday sentiment from Simon Says Stamp.

I’m entering this card to Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 314. I used the color inspiration in my cupcake and added some sequins too for added texture.

Coloring fun

Hello there!

Today I’m playing along Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, Use your favorite technique and/ or product.

I love coloring and was practicing last night using Promarker alcohol markers to color my images. I used Paper Smooches We Adore You stamp set. The sentiment is a combination from two other stamp sets. So love Paper Smooches stamps and dies 🙂 my all time fave I may say.

I fussy cut the creatures and die cut the arrows, so love die cuts as well 🙂 Oh and the sequins makes me happy too.




I used a sketch from Sketch Saturday Week #365.

Birthday fun

Hello there!

I had a chance to play with some quick water-coloring last night using Simon Says Stamp clear stamps and dies.

I colored the image with very light watercolor then die cut the image using the coordinating die. I also added some enamel dots to add some dimension and color.

For the sentiment, I embossed the greetings with white embossing powder.



I used a card sketch inspiration from Naughty or Nice Challenge #16, Sketch.
