Hello card

Happy Saturday!

In today’s card, I used Sarah‘s mini stamp set and random patterned papers for a simple “Hello” card.

I’m sharing this card too in Sarah Hurley365 blog ūüôā so come on over there to see more..



Entering this card to Scribble and Scrap Challenge # 46, Anything Goes.

Also in Craft Your Passion Challenge # 265, Anything Goes.

Until then!

Merry & bright

I’m playing along Fusion challenge (Merry Christmas), the last challenge for the year.

It’s not that they’re closing the challenge but¬†they will be back again for 1st January for a brand new challenge.

For my take, I used the sketch as the inspiration on this card plus the red and white checks as an accent color.

For the background, I stamped the Christmas tree from Jaine Drake special edition stamp set using Versamark. I then die cut the stars using Sarah Hurley papers and added one more vellum layer for added dimension.

In the stars, I also stamped it with Bookmark background stamp then clear embossed it.

The sketch inspiration..

Happy Friday!

I can’t believe that we’re running half the month of January 2014. The new year has let me sit for a while to write down so many new plans for the year and I hope I when I look on it again before end of the year, I accomplish them ¬†as I planned them to be.

On another note, 2014  has brought new changes too at the Sarah Hurley Challenge blog which is now called the Sarah Hurley 365. The blog now brings great project inspirations from the design team. Its amazing seeing all those talents have shared in the blog so far.

For my card project today, I used ¬†one of my favorite mini vintage camera stamps from Sarah’s kits. I have used these cameras in a number of cards already in the past and still can’t get over it til now. Maybe because I love photography and camera images just keep me close to this hobby of mine.

To start off, I alternatively stamped the cameras on a kraft card stock, that plays as my card background.

I then stamped another set of the cameras and colored them with promarkers, then fuzzy cut them to be used as my card’s focal point. Noticed the camera lens in the Polaroid? I put glossy accents in there for some dimension and shine.

To ground the set of cameras, I used the wood veneer frame and oh the vintage camera came from Sarah’s¬†A Few of my Favorite Things Kit. ¬†The other Polaroid camera I also got from Sarah’s¬†add on kit¬†too. That open frame just fits two of the cameras in place and I popped them up using dimensions.


I stamped the geotag from¬†Stamp & Stitched! Expedition stamps¬†while the pretty in pink twine is from the¬†East Village kit. I added the chipboard stars from Sarah’s kits as well.

This is it for now and I’ll catch up again later.


Felt crown for the little boys

I did this handmade felt crown for the little boys. It’s been pending for a while but so glad I¬†finally made it. I have a girl version of this that I also did here¬†for KC.

I used die cut stars and circles of felt as embellishments plus the glitzy buttons¬†to add a feel of¬†royalty ūüôā I also added my favorite ribbons and colored pompom ribbon.

Shaker Card

Wow, it’s already November, few more weeks and Christmas will soon be here! But before that special day comes, I still have a holiday bazaar to attend to next weekend. Still a lot of things to do but I intend to just have fun in the show, not to stress too much about it.

For now, I’m sharing a shaker¬†card that I¬†did for Sarah Hurley Challenges.¬†The challenge is now up so you can go visit Sarah’s challenge blog for more inspiration. ¬†This month’s theme is Bonfire Brights.

All stamps and pattern papers are all from Sarah Hurley. For the background I used the Large Texture stamp¬†while the sentiment is from the¬†Sentiments Stamp. I also stamped the¬†stars from¬†the Wish Upon a Star Girl stamps.¬†I highlighted the bonfire color yellow orange which are the stars, these¬†I think will match the theme. For the papers, I used¬†A Few of my Favorite Things Vol.1 8×8 paper¬†collection.

I got the tiny stars (to shake) from a nail art section at a local thrift store.

Had fun doing this interactive shaker card.

Layered Vellum Die Cuts

It’s been a while that I haven’t join Papertrey Ink’s weekly challenge. This week, I’m¬†taking part on Make It Monday #92: Layered Vellum Die Cuts challenge.

I used Papertrey Ink Stars die, die cut the vellum in several mid-size and small sizes then layered them together. The single layer vellum somehow gives a burst of rays around the¬†full star¬†isn’t it? I stamped the background with musical stamp background as well as the tag. The tag is also a die I have¬†from Papertrey Ink.

I’m entering the card to¬†Pretty Paper Studio’s November challenge¬†too.
