Just checking in quickly to share my take in this week’s Sketch Saturday challenge # 457.
I missed joining in weekly challenges like this since work life has been very busy for the last quarter. So happy to take part this week though.
I used a digital stamp from Some Odd Girl called Nerdy Chihuahua 🙂 So cute isn’t it? I colored him with promarkers and fussy cut him too. For the card base, I added some texture by embossing with Swiss dots embossing folder. The oblong and rectangular shapes were also diecut with stitching details.

My Favorite Things is running the 2016 Card Design Superstar contest and I saw the current entries from MFT blog. There’s a lot of amazing card submissions and its so great to see so many ways one can do on a stamp set 🙂 It will be closing in a few days but I’m taking my chance to share my take. I have nothing to lose right? It will always be fun.
I only have 3 stamp sets from MFT. One is the Santa set and the other the Pig and Gnome sets. I also have a very limited dies from MFT so I need to utilize whatever I have to create something fun for the challenge. One of the conditions is of course to use MFT stamps and dies only.
So here’s my contribution. I used a combination of the 2 stamp sets I have (Pig & Gnome) to create a small flower-pot scene. I first partially diecut the 3 gnomes in 2 separate panels, colored them with promarkers then later layered them using dimensional adhesive.
I also stamped other elements like the palette, flower pots, snails and mushrooms. Each and everyone is colored with promarker 🙂 I only have the coordinating dies for the gnomes so for the elements from the pig stamp like the flower pots and palettes, I fussy cut them. I know it will take a bit more time cutting but I love fussy cutting too 🙂
For my border, I used the wonky rectangles to add some accents.
You can click on the images to see them in bigger size 🙂
A closer look at the colored images. Love coloring them 🙂
Another closer look of the layering and partial die cutting I did on this card.
Partial die cutting and panel layers. There are 2 different white panels with the gnomes, one has the 2 gnomes and the other layer with 1 gnome partially die cut with the rest of the flower pots etc.
I had a quick copic coloring using this hog stamp from My Favorite Things. I saw several cards online with this stamp set and made sure that my next craft order will have this stamp too.
I used only two pink color of copic markers, the one I got is from the basic skin color set and I used the lightest flesh color with pink. I added some vellum die cut for the clouds and some coordinating sequins from Neat & Tangled for some texture.
Happy to use some washi tape on this card too.

Today, I did a card using a sketch from Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge Sketch Challenge # 241.
I used a combination of stamps from Mommy Lhey for the cute octopus, sentiment from Technique Tuesday, and the splash of turquoise patch from Hero Arts.
The stash of ribbon is from my previous collection, love to use them again this time.
I used a very simple water coloring on the octopus background and in the image too. I added some sequins too and voila, clean and simple just the way I like it 🙂
I also used a color inspiration from WIW Color Challenge- Red,Turquoise, Black & White.
And here’s my take
I’m also entering this to Happy Little Stampers Case the Designer challenge. I used the octupus as my main image & used the circle too to focus on the image.

Happy to share another card using stamps that I owned sometime ago from Wplus9.
First, I stamped the images in white pigment ink then put another colored ink on top of it, a little bit offset to create a shadow. I also added some sequins for additional texture and color. Always love sequins and one layer card 🙂
I used a card sketch from CAS(E) this sketch # 179.

Just checking in quickly to share a clean and simple card using Paper Smooches Afresco stamp set.
I stamped the barbeque skewers and the ants along with the salt shaker and ketchup, coloring them all using promarkers. I also die cut them using their coordinating dies that I later layered a bit. Some additional pepper, mushrooms and shrimp were also scattered around the ants for some fun.
I added the oval shape using a die, at closer look you can see the detail stitch from the die I used to emboss the shape. I then added a stitched line along the ovals for some details.
I’m entering this card to Paper Smooches July Challenge-Summer. In my home country, summer is the time for barbeque and grilling under the sun 🙂 so this is my take on this month’s challenge.
I used a car sketch inspiration from Freshly Made Sketches # 244.

I got some time to make another card using a sketch from Viva La Verve June Sketch 2.
I used stamps from Paper Smooches. For the furry cat, I colored her with promarker with a light copic marker for her cheeks 🙂
I haven’t use much of my ribbon stash so this challenge is a great way to use my cute ribbons isn’t it?

After several weeks in hiatus, I finally had the chance to play with my craft supplies to create some love themed cards. It’s a very busy time at work and I need to keep some crafty time at the back seat for sometime. Anyhow, it feels good to be productive again in my craft time. Miss this!
So, its valentine’s day tomorrow so Happy Valentine to you all 🙂
I made this clean and simple Valentine card with minimum supplies.
I used the hearts banner stamp from Sarah Hurley. And the cutesy turtle from Paper Smooches Party Posse stamp set.

Continuing my card making projects this week using Paper Smooches stamps.
I stamped the critters and fussy cut them since I don’t have the coordinating dies. I added some googly eyes for some fun 🙂 I also added some sequins for some glitz.

Today is a soft watercoloring to color these lovely Christmas ornaments. I used stamps from Sarah Hurley special edition stamp set by Jaine Drake.
I used the sentiment in the Robins set, while the ornaments are from the Traditional Christmas Ornaments.
I started with soft coloring then adding more colors after drying each of the watercolor layer. Love the soft effect it makes. I added some sequins for more spark.
