Joy to the world

Happy Friday!

I made another holiday card using some new stamps from Avery Elle.

I love these cute woodland creatures and how cute they look singing for Christmas 🙂 I colored the images with promarkers and fussy cut them since I don’t have their coordinating dies yet.

For my papers, I have some stash from Pink Paisley and used them up this time. It looks more vintage but its nice to incorporate them to new modern stamps once in a while.  I also added some sequins to mimic the snow fall.

I  used a card sketch from Sketch Saturday: Week # 433.

Spritz fun

Happy Saturday!

I’ve been looking for some card challenges different from the ones I usually join in and got this one from Virginia’s View Challenge, Challenge # 23.  The challenge is to use Spray, Mist or Splatter so I looked at my supplies to use.

I found this mini mist Mr Huey’s from Studio Calico that I got from a box haul long time ago. I only  have one color  called Jubilee so I decided to make a monochromatic card instead. It would be nice to have more colors but since I seldom use mini mist and I need the supply now, why not work on what I have and see what I can get out of it?

So I sprayed the mini mist to a white cardstock, then let them dry for sometime. I haven’t played a lot using this technique but it was fun 🙂

then I selected parts of the sprayed paper to stamp my fishes from Avery Elle. I love them 🙂 Since the eyes were also colored with the mist, I stamped the eye part of the fish in a clean white cardstock and fussy cut them to put on top of the sprayed ones. A nice clean pair of eyes would be good right?

I used a sprayed watercolor paper with the same Jubilee color for my background piece. I also added a framed die cut to placed the fishes. An additional sequins would be good also, with the same color scheme of green.

The spritz color added a soft coloring to the stamped images which I love 🙂

Supplies used:

Get well

A quick post for today after the Christmas rush, I had the chance to craft today and play with Paper Smooches, Anything Goes, Dec 21-27 (wk 3) challenge.

I die cut the Get Well phrase and two of the Arrows. I popped them by cutting a cardboard and another card stock to raise the die cut pieces in the card. I also stamped three hearts from the Bitty Bungalow stamp set.




The card layout is inspired from CAS(E) this Sketch challenge #104.

Good tidings

Hello there!

I’m playing along this week in Sketch N Scrap Challenge # 40.

I used a non-holiday stamp, Red & Goldie clear stamp set  from Avery Elle. I just colored the images with Christmas colors and also used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images. I think I’m beginning to be obsessed with Pretty Pink Posh sequins 🙂 I used clear sequins and some pink and red ones here. The stitched tag die I used here is also from Pretty Pink Posh.

The sentiments I used is from Ali Edwards and the patterned papers are from Lawn Fawn.
