Some Odd Girl March Challenge – twist pop it up

Hi there!

So happy to share this sweet image ‘Guitar Kody’ from Some Odd Girl. This is my take in this month’s (March) Challenge in Some Odd Girl, with the twist pop it up.  You may come and drop by the Some Odd Girl blog to join in and see the rest of the amazing creations of the team.

After coloring Kody with promarker, I fussy cut the image and pop that up with dimensional adhesives. You can  see the elevated image in my close up photo of Kody. I also popped the bubble speech with dimensionals.

That’s it for now and enjoy the rest of your day 🙂

Swoon Dakota Digi Stamp

Hello!

Today I’m sharing one of the newly released digi stamps from Some Odd Girl, Swoon Dakota. I love how she flipped one of her leg, adding a cute gesture on her character.

I recently bought some new Promarker, Skin tone last weekend and used it here to color Dakota. I think I need to do some more practice runs in blending with my new alcohol markers but generally pleased on how Dakota brought life to this clean and simple card.

I used some die cuts to add some texture on the cardstock border and also banner die cuts on top of my card. Some sequins will be fun too isn’t it? 🙂

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.

I’m back! and a card

Wow! I can’t believe I haven’t posted in my blog for months, feels like forever?!

So what had happened? I was on my annual break last November and had to prepare the trip even before November. Then I have to travel for two weeks in North America. Its cold but great! I may say the best two weeks of my life 🙂

Had great places to see and amazing people to meet. It was quite incredible, the best birthday gift to self.

After the vacation, a lot of things need to be done at work so I haven’t really updated the blog. I’m however posting my holiday cards in Instagram. You can also check me out there as @heartforhandmade

So today, had the chance to do some holiday cards.

I did some embossing – dry and heat embossing plus some die cutting in the scallop strip + sequins.

Well its nice to be back.

Coloring with distress markers

Hello!

For this card, I used some cute house stamps from Paper Smooches. I colored them with distress markers and added some water to get this watercolor wash. I then added some frosted lace stickles to mimic some snowy scene for the holidays.

I placed the houses in a blue die cut tag with red ribbon strips behind. My sentiment is from Ali Edwards, always love the fonts on this stamp set.

I also added some sequins for more holiday sparkles.

I used a card sketch from The Paper Players: PP318.

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 🙂

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!

Joy to the world

Happy Friday!

I made another holiday card using some new stamps from Avery Elle.

I love these cute woodland creatures and how cute they look singing for Christmas 🙂 I colored the images with promarkers and fussy cut them since I don’t have their coordinating dies yet.

For my papers, I have some stash from Pink Paisley and used them up this time. It looks more vintage but its nice to incorporate them to new modern stamps once in a while.  I also added some sequins to mimic the snow fall.

I  used a card sketch from Sketch Saturday: Week # 433.

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.

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.
