Time Out Challenge #3

Seriously, I made this card in such a hurry that I was so worried that I was too late for the Time Out Challenge which is due in an hour's time!

It started off with playing with the embossing paste and I really like how it turned out and decided to make it into a masculine card for this challenge.

Anyway, the smaller cardstock is swiped with the embossing paste and I used a brayer to give some colours on it.  Same goes with the MFT feathers but without any colours.  The little tag is from SU and I finished the card with a twine!

This card also enters into the following challenge : Simon Wednesday Challenge.

Today might be my last posting of the week as I will be away for a long weekend to Metz, France.  See you next week and have a great week.  Thanks for dropping by!

The long weekend has ended so quickly and I hope everyone had a good one.

I have a card to share today by using the sketch from MFT and colour challenge from Dynamic Duos. I love the colour challenge of this week as I find it rather special.

The base card is embossed with SU folder and this time I used the MFT fishtail in a different approach. I painted the gold paint onto the raspberry cardstock and love how it turned out.


Thank you for dropping by and have a crafty week!

Reverse Confetti - April Color Challenge

Happy Easter to all and hope you are having a relaxing day!  Weather has been lovely today and DH and me made a cycling tour of 20km.

I am using the colour challenge from Reverse Confetti and a sketch challenge from Seize the Sketch to make a card for a friend.
The background panel is embossed and machine-stitched and pearl accents are added on the lower half to differentiate the two different halves.  I used the Stripey set from Reverse Confetti which is stamped in green and die cut with MFT set which is made into a shaker.  The sentiment is from Craft Companion which is stamped and heat embossed in white on a piece of vellum.  Punched out all the little hearts in different colours.

The die cut flower is from MFT and the leaves is from SU.

Do you have any plan for tomorrow?  My in-laws are coming over and it will be a cooking day for me!  Enjoy the rest of your Easter.

PTI-MIM #159

The no-sew quilted card tutorial at PTI inspired me to give it a try as I have never done one before.

Instead of using patterned papers, I stamped the patterned papers by using PTI Background Botanical
set to create the quilt.  I am using the colour challenge from Colour Q and the sketch from Always Playing with Paper to create this card.

I used two colours for the die cut to create a shadow image.


It's a working day for me tomorrow and wishing you a good week ahead.

CMSS #14

Yay!  It's Friday.  Today, I had time to make another card for AEI Heart U Challenge combining the colour challenge from Colour Me Card Challenge.

This card I used all the die cuts from Avery Elle Icon Fill In the Blank by using the sketch challenge from CAS (E) this Sketch. I am also entering this card into a new challenge The Time Out Challenge.  I feel good when I am able to combine as many challenges as possible.

First, I arranged all the icons on position and used the negative die cuts and added the burlap heartshape..  On a separate piece of cardstock, I watercoloured it with blue and yellow. Adhered the top layer and stamped the sentiment.


Thanks for dropping by and have a lovely weekend!
