Thanks

Hello there! Wow! Feels like forever since I posted a card project. Life’s been so busy from the time I went to vacation in November and even after returning from the trip. Add to the fact that the holidays are busier and the first quarter of the year even crazier 🙂

It’s good to get back on my crafty life slowly but will sure get there eventually.

So for this card I used my favorite washi tapes for the background. I also die cut the sentiment “Thanks” from Lawn Fawn while the stamp came from My Favorite Things.

There are a lot of craft supplies that I still need to use and hopefully I’ll be showcasing them individually soon.

I’m using a card sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch #196.

Embossing and patterned papers

Hello!

So I’m still into the Christmas vibe making some more holiday cards for friends. There’s a gathering on Thursday and I thought it would be nice to give something too while we’re celebrating an advance Christmas dinner.

For this card, I used a card sketch from Sketch N Scrap, Card sketch # 87.

I used some patterned papers and embossed the sentiment with white. The background texture is also made using an embossing folder. The cutesy images are from My Favorite Things & Pretty Pink Posh.

Let’s be merry

Hiya!

So trying to get into swing of things around the blog. This time trying to take a sketch challenge from Match the Sketch, No. 155.

I’ve been loving the washi tape on my christmas cards this year and still loving it. Apparently in today’s card is not an exception. I added a strip of washi and embossed the background for some added texture.

My main image is colored with promarkers and die cut the same. Though this card’s color is not really traditional holiday color, still love this one 🙂

Watercolor and stamping

Hello!

I’m checking in quickly to share my card using My Favorite Things Holiday stamps. The images are stamped and colored with watercolor.

I also used a strip of washi tape in the left and a circle scallop vellum in the middle of my stamped images. I also added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh for some fun 🙂

At the bottom are some stamped doilies from an older stamp set.

A very simple and clean holiday card, just like I want 🙂

Stripes and watercolor

Happy Saturday!

For this card I used fabric tape to create the red stripes. I have a big bottle full of washi and different tapes and I thought I need to make use of them frequently because they deserved more love 🙂 The blue strip is a washi that I crossed over the red tape.

I used stamped images from My Favorite Things and colored them with watercolor. The Christmas tree was colored with promarkers.

The holiday season is soon to come and I need to do my holiday cards this early.

My sentiment is die cut from My Favorite Things as well.

I used a card sketch from Sketch N Scrap, Card Sketch # 84.

Merry Christmas – die cut

Hiya!

I was able to do some holiday cards today and this one is just one of them.

I used my new stamps from My Favorite Things and did some die cutting with their coordinating dies.

My card sketch inspiration is from Freshly Made Sketches, Sketch #259.

fms-final-259-001

The stamps I used are actually a non-holiday stamp set but I did some holiday colors to make it a Christmas card 🙂 The sentiment “Merry Christmas” is a die from My Favorite Things that I got free from my previous haul. I die cut them three times to make a thicker dimension.

Coloring is just simple using my promarkers and copics. For my strip behind the circle is a ribbon and a gold paper that I got from a scrap packaging box. Love to recycle things like this luscious papers from packages 🙂

I added some flat gold sequins and glittery stickles I’m done!

One cool cat

Hello!

I’m checking in quickly to share my take in Addicted to Stamps and more, Challenge #214 – Anything Goes Challenge.

I used my new stamps from My Favorite Things 🙂 I stamped the cool cat in a patterned paper and fussy cut them since I don’t have the coordinating dies yet. I then added some googly eyes  on my cat for some fun.

I also used some washi tapes on the sides and also added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh for more texture.

My card sketch inspiration is from CAS(E) this Sketch #193.

Holiday card

Hello!

I’m checking in quickly to share my take in Freshly Made Sketches, Sketch # 256 Challenge.

fms-final-256-001

I used stamps from My Favorite Things and the sentiment from Technique Tuesday.

I colored the kitties with promarker and fussy cut each of the colored images. I did a holiday hat from another stamp set Santa from My Favorite Things and adjust the size according to the kitties head. Some cutting and drawing to fit t the hats and I’m done 🙂

Coloring with markers

Happy Saturday!

I have a quick share of a card using Love Cynthia stamp.

I stamped the main  image from two different sets and colored them with one of my favorite coloring mediums, the alcohol based markers, promarker and copic marker. I only have limited colors on these markers but I’m glad I’m able to use what I have and make the most of it. These markers are quite expensive especially the copics but I get by with my crafty coloring using only what I have. One doesn’t necessarily need to buy all the available colors in the spectrum to get you to coloring 🙂

One thing I love about alcohol markers is that it blends nicely when you combine 2 to 3 colors and they also give vibrant colors.

I die cut the frame using My Favorite Things scallop die and additionally stamped some swirly vines on the sides.

I’m using a card sketch from CAS Colours and Sketches Challenge # 192.

MFT stamps and die – Card 2

Hello!

Just popping in quickly to share my second card for My Favorite Things Card Design Superstar 2016.

Print

You can find my first card entry here.

I totally forgot that I have this Die-namics Floral Fusion Cover Up die that I really haven’t used yet. Wow! That was bought sometime ago. I saw a card set before that used this cover up die and I made sure that time that I need to get this floral die. It’s a shame that I haven’t played on it yet until now 🙂

I’m happy to use it in today’s card background. I used it to die cut a subtle designed paper, with a hint of soft color outline.

Also, I had some coloring on my images, my gnome with watercolor and the fence and flowers with promarker.

I also placed a die cut vellum using MFT dies and placed it behind the images so they will not be lost in the floral die cut design on the base.

Note that you can click on the image for a larger view

A closer look on the Hello banner. I have the sentiment stamped on a designer paper and attached it to a toothpick, then  tucked it behind the fence
