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.

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 🙂

Washi and coloring

Hello!

I’m playing with Paper Smooches stamps called Needle Little Love.

I love sewing and this stamp set just called my name when I saw it 🙂 I colored the sewing machine and the heart with promarkers. To add more fun, I added a small piece of folded fabric and placed it closed to the needle part, like someone’s sewing 🙂

I also added some washi tape on both sides of the stamped frame.

I used a sketch from Sketch N Scrap, Card sketch # 82.

Copic coloring and washi

Happy Monday!

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.

My card sketch inspiration is from My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge, Sketch # 296.

Simple Coloring with Inktense Pencils

Hello!

I recently purchased some new stamps online and finally had the chance to use this Trouble in a Tutu stamp set from Clearly Besotted 🙂 They’re so cute right? The  set has coordinating dies but I was not able to buy those yet but will definitely get them in my next haul.

I colored the images with Inktense pencils, using only pink and black. I used a very light stroke in coloring the areas that are supposed to be dark and let the highlights be in white. This card makes me smile really.

For my sentiment I white embossed them and added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh for some more fun.

I used a card sketch inspiration from CAS(E) this Sketch #187.

I also used a die from Mama Elephant to emboss the borders of the card base to add details. Just enough to put some texture on a plain card base.

Always CAS

Hiya!

Popping in today to share my take in CAS(E) this Sketch # 184. I used to join in this challenge blog and happy to be able to join this week.

I always love clean and simple (CAS) cards and it makes me smile to do something clean yet cute in a way.

I have this “You”stamp set from Simon Says Stamp for sometime, finally use them in today’s card. I love the clean lines of the fonts and the combination of stamped heart and die cut hearts. The image is from Mama Elephant 🙂  colored him with promarkers

Gnomes

I have been coloring my new gnome stamps from My Favorite Things and so happy to finally put them into a card. I colored the images and background with distress ink pads and I’m loving it.

I embossed the white card stock base with my favorite embossing folder with dots. I haven’t done any dry embossing lately 🙂  The background just mimics the dots patterned paper that I used in the strip.

I had a great time playing with   my new stamps and trying out watercoloring more with distress inks. I only have few colors but plans to add a little more to the collection. It will be fun to play more with colors for sure.

I used the sketch from My Favorite Things, Sketch Challenge #291.

On your special day

Hiya!

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.

Clean and simple card

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.

Coloring & ribbons

Hello!

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?
