Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Sweet Summer

Hello everyone!

It’s Newton’s Nook Designs second day of the June release called Sweet Summer.

For my card, I stamped the fruits on pattern paper and like I did in the Chicken Scratches card I shared yesterday, I fussy cut them too. Looking at this new stamp set reminds me of a fun, bright summer with family and friends. Brings that happy thoughts.

You can color the fruits with any medium you may have, watercolor, markers, colored pencils and others.

In my case, I have a lot of pattern papers in my stash so paper piecing is a great way of using small papers to create new card project.

Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Chicken Scratches

Wohoo! It’s Newton’s Nook Designs June Release!

I’m so glad to be joining the team this month as Guest Designer and so excited to share what I have come up with the first set of stamp for the month called  Chicken Scratches.

I have stamped the chicks on pattern paper and fussy cut them. I also stamped the grass and cut them to put in the background. I know some will not be keen on doing fussy cuts specially for small sized stamp pieces but I find it relaxing, weird I know 🙂

Part of the set is the hexagon pattern which I used in my card base. I had so much fun doing this little scene.

SNS Holiday Hop Winner

It’s seems a long time since I last posted a card project.

Last week was the International Holiday Bazar here in Doha and yours truly has taken part again for the second time 🙂 It was fun and every year more vendors join in with more interesting stuff to sell. I was busy preparing for the show and hadn’t much time to share a card lately. You can see some photos of the show in my Facebook page.

The past week was also a very sad time for us Filipinos. With the strongest typhoon Haiyan (local name Yolanda) hit the Philippines on 8th November, it has left thousands of lives lost and so much destruction in the Southern part of our country. We continuously pray for all our countrymen affected by the calamity. Even if we’re away, we’re contributing in whatever way we can to help now.

In a lighter note, I’m here to announce the winner of  SNS Holiday Hop, with my take – Christmas.

Using the random generator, we got # 21

Congratulations Janis!

Please send me your mailing address to send your prize.

Thank you all so much to everyone who left some love during the hop. I appreciate you all 🙂

Sketch N Scrap Blog Hop – Christmas

Hello everyone!

I hope you’re having a great time visiting Sketch N Scrap’s daily inspiration in the hop.

Today is my turn in SNS Holiday Hop with Christmas being the highlight.  It’s only few weeks from now until Christmas and I have started working on my holiday cards that I will be sending away to friends and family.

Christmas is such a special celebration for us a family. As I’m working overseas, I make it a point to come home for Christmas and New Year to be with the whole family. It’s not only the time that we come together with all the kids and siblings but its the time we celebrate God’s special gift of love, the birth of Jesus.

Moving with the card project today, I die cut the Christmas tree twice from Papertrey Ink. I then stitched them together for some handmade feel to it and added some sequins too for glitz. For the sentiment, I silver embossed them to complement the shine in the tree.

Sketch N Scrap Holiday Blog Hop – Day 1

Today starts the Holiday Blog Hop at Sketch N Scrap and I’m dedicating this project post both for the hop and the digi Monday.

From today until 8th of November, great holiday projects will be featured everyday for inspiration SNS blog. I will be featuring my take on Saturday, 26th of October but before that day comes, go and check out what’s in stored at SNS blog for a holiday inspiration and a chance to win along the hop.

On my turn, I will be giving away some craft supplies that you can also use in your projects.

For now, let me share another project that you can do using a digi image stamp.

I colored Candace digi image, Costume Set 2 from Chi Chi Memories with promarkers. Then fuzzy cut her before adhering to the tag.  I just love how digi stamps can be resized to fit for a card, a tag or just another craft medium.

Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you again soon.
