It’s been quiet around here for sometime eh. I have been so occupied with work and need to do a lot of things before I go on a short leave for the holidays. I will be spending christmas and new year with my family back home and will not be around blogging during those times.
I will not be around for the next two weeks but would like to share a project that I did make for The Stamping Shack blog. I have been wandering around to do printing on fabric and did finally try one on this project. Here I used Pirate Boy digistamp from the Stamping Shack store. You can use whatever digistamp image you would wish and customize the same as you would want them too.
You can visit The Stamping Shack blog to see the process I did on this one.
This is it for now and I wish you all A Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
For today’s card I’m highlighting the Postage Elf digi from The Stamping Shack. This is my second time to use the Postage Elf, I have used it here in my Holiday Mini Cards that can be used to write your greetings when sending out your holiday gift. I have colored my image with watercolour pencils.
Here, I highlight the digi by putting it into a frame, embossed the background and added minimal decor to keep a clean overall look.
Note that from 15th December, there will be a card challenge at The Stamping Shack blog with the theme ‘Let the Holiday Begin’. Be sure to drop by at their blog on how to join in.
I’m entering this card in Retro Sketches challenge # 41.
I came across the Freshly Made Sketches blog (Sketch # 64) through one of the many blogs I’ve visited lately and decided to play along. Sorry I should have noted where I found the link from so I can give her credit too.
On this card, I used a digistamp Christmas Elves from the Stamping Shack store and colored them with non-traditional christmas colors, pink and blues. This particular digistamp will be on special from Wednesday, 12th Dec midnight GMT so go check the store to grab these darling. Inspirational projects will be at the Stamping Shack blog too so be sure visit them on Wednesday.
For the flower-like embellishment, I use 5 layers of diecut stars layered on top of each other then finish them off with a colored wooden button. The background pattern paper was adhered directly on the base but I ran a zigzag stitch using my sewing machine for some texture.
I’m entering this card too at Lawnscaping Challenge # 47, to use the colors turquoise, kraft and red.
Now off to my card.
I’m using another digistamp from The Stamping Shack called Carol Singers. Beginning 1st December, there will be a Sparkle and Shine challenge at The Stamping Shack blog. Be sure to check them out and have the chance to win some of their sweet digistamps.
For my card background, I embossed part of the base with silver embossing. It gives just a right texture and shine without being too shiny. I colored my carol singers with watercolor pencils, put some glitter glue on their dress and glossy accents to the litte girl’s head dress. I found glittered buttons on my stash and decided to add them too for some extra embellishment.
I’m entering this card to Retrosketch # 39. I love working with sketch challenges so whenever I have the chance, I join in for fun.
I’m sharing here today an invitation card that I did using Hey Dude! digistamp from The Stamping Shack. Doing this invite is so easy and anyone can do this in no time at all. I’m posting the process at The Stamping Shack blog so you can check them out too.
Today is another digistamp from The Stamping Shack. This cutesie is called Brolly Girl or simply umbrella girl. It rained last week here in Doha and this digi is just perfect for the first rain in the year. The rain is almost like a brief shower not heavy as what we usually have back home but still good to have. The weather is starting to get colder as we reach December, soon it will feel more winter in here.
For today’s card, I colored her with watercolor pencils and use papers from Echo Park and Stampin Up! The ribbon came from my stash thread.
Note that there’s still time to join the card challenge at The Stamping Shack, up until 8am GMT on 29th November so check the blog now to join in. You can check the details here for more info.
And now off to my brolly girl.

I had the chance to do a quick mini holiday card today using digistamp from The Stamping Shack. The digis are from the Lillliput and Cutie Tootsie collection. You can check the store for more adorable digis.
In both cards, I mainly embossed the card base using an embossing border folder from Sizzix. I colored both card images with watercolor pencils.
For my winter penguin, I put a wiggly eye for some character, minimal embellishment using twine and patterned papers, a mini holiday card that I can easily put on top of a gift. I’m entering this blue card in CAS-ual Fridays, Winter Blues challenge, CFC 79.
For the Lilliput digi, I made a more traditional look since I find the image resembles a vintage look into it. I used twine and ribbon for minimal embellishment again and embossing on the base of the card.

Happy Wednesday! I can’t believe it’s almost weekend and already a week after the holiday bazaar. Where did time go?
Today is another stamp of the week feature at The Stamping Shack. I used the Postbox gift digi on my card, put some glitter glue on her coat’s collar & cuff, and bling on her buttons, can’t see them clearly on the photos but it’s there 🙂
For the sentiment, I stamped Happy Holidays on to a banner tag, I did put an eyelet on the tag’s end for a little bit of interest.
I used the sketch inspiration from Retro sketch # 38, and I’m entering my card there too for this week’s challenge.

It’s been awhile that I haven’t join a card challenge lately but now it’s back to join the fun again.
This time I used another digistamp from Stamping Shack called Feeding Chicks. More adorable digistamps can be found at The Stamping Shack shop so go and check them out here.
There’s an ongoing challenge at their blog til the 29th of November so be sure to submit your entries as early as now so you’ll not miss the chance. Rules and prize are also at the blog. You can see my gift tag project inspiration there too using Cupcake Chef Daisy.
For today, I used this fun Feeding Chicks digi, colored them with watercolor pencils and used minimal embellishments. This scene reminds me of our childhood days when we used to feed our native chickens with their little chicks. We don’t have a barn but life back then seems to be so simple yet fun. My dad used to get eggs from the mother chick in morning for breakfast 🙂 My brothers and I used to feed these chicks every weekend and whenever we had the chance. Oh I miss those days with my family..
And so, now, I’m entering this card at CAS(E) this sketch # 6 challenge.

Hi everyone! It’s been a quiet week here on my blog nook huh? I’ve been busy around work and with the preparation for this Saturday’s holiday bazaar. Can’t pass this day though to let you know of what’s new at the Stamping Shack
Anyhow, on to my project this week is this very lovely digistamp called Cupcake Chef Daisy which I used as the main character for my birthday gift tag. The image can be bought here at the Stamping Shack store. You can visit the blog too to join in this month’s first challenge with a theme “Anything Goes” and check out my other co-designers creativity.
The challenge will run from 8am GMT today, 15th November until 8am GMT on 29th November.
The winners will be announced at the Stamping Shack blog at 8pm GMT 29th November. Prizes are at stake for the winners so go check out the blog for additional details.
For my Cupcake Daisy tag, I colored her with watercolor pencils, cut the image from the print then did another print of the same image on a pattern paper. The pattern paper enable me to cut her chef uniform. As for the background tag, I stamped it with polka dot bg stamp from Paper Smooches, Geo Graphic.
This red tag is just fit for the white paper pouch where I packed the small gift for a little girl chef.
Now head over to Stamping Shack blog for more inspiration.
