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?

Hello every one!
Have you sometimes wondered how to get plain packaging pouch to look more encouraging than a plain white paper to put things in?
I’m sharing a packaging project at a2z Scrapbooking blog today addressing this thought. Here’s a sneak peek of what I did so visit the a2z Scrapbooking blog to see how I packaged a card and some sweets. It’s a great way to mass produce too to use in party favors. Go can go here for more details.

June is not only the month for weddings but for the Dads too.
For today’s card, I did a Father’s day card for my Dad. I finally used the stamp set from Kelly Purkey and the card base from Hero Arts. I white embossed the sentiment and added a strip of ribbons for some texture. I also did some die cutting for the main frame.

This week I was able to send out some more Christmas cards overseas and was happy I was able to managed it within the first week of December. There are still some to be mailed in the coming week before I go on a short holiday break with family back in the Philippines so I hope all are received before the 25th.
For now, let me share the card I created for Sketch N Scrap, Card Sketch # 15. The sketch is another great one from Kelly.
I used the pretty red ribbons from my stash while the patterned papers are from Basic Gray, Aspen Frost collection. The small banners are from Pink Paislee which I also have in a while from my stash and the stamps from Ali Edwards.

Card sketch #14 by Lisa is now up at the Sketch N Scrap blog.
I seldom do a masculine card so this one I think will be one of my favorite card creation 🙂 I just find this guy stamp from Paper Smooches so cute. I did a combination of paper piecing and coloring using promarkers.
For the papers, I use a paper combo from Sarah Hurley, Lawn Fawn, Echo Park, all from my stash. I added some washi tape and did partial embossing as well in the sides and the sentiment, some ribbon and buttons and I’m done.
Do check the rest of the card inspirations from Sketch N Scrap blog and enjoy.

It’s my second ‘Digi Monday‘ project and I’m so glad to share my take in this week’s continuation of Chi Chi Memories digi that I also used last week, the Party Stamp – Digital Stamp Set.
I colored Candace with promarkers and fuzzy cut. I popped her in a die cut tag with some background stamping.
I have colorful roll of ribbons in my stash, most of which have been used in a project or two. I added these ribbons in diagonal strips for a fun background color as well. The Cupcake & Tea were printed and popped also with a die cut flower shaped for some added texture.
