Stamploration - Stamps and Stencil

Happy Sunday!  It's all about stamps and stencil over at Stamplorations.

For the background, I used stencil from memory box which is lightly distressed in TH Pickled Raspberry and Ice Spruce.  Stamped the sentiment from TH also in ice spruce.  As for the base card, I used the same colour pickled raspberry which is inked on the edges.  The butterfly is also inked in pickled raspberry and die cut.  I decorated the corners with machine-stitched zig-zag and straight followed by distressed.  I am also popping this into Butterfly Challenge.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

MIM #206

This week at PTI, Danielle is sharing her ideas in creating stamped patterned papers and ways on mix and match them.  Here is my attempt in using three different stamps in creating 3 patterned papers.

The base background is stamped in light grey and light blue with the set from PTI Background Basic Botanical.  The tree is stamped and heat embossed from the set PTI Father Knows Best.  I used watercolour for the soil and stamped the sentiment.  The two banners are stamped from PTI Background Basic Botanical too.  As I have never used one of the background stamp before, I am entering this card into djkardkreations:NBUS Challenge and Uniko Studio challenge.

Enjoy your Friday!

Lawnscaping Challenge #102

When I saw the "magical" distressing done by Laura Bassen I just had to try it out myself.  The first trial did not turned out well but I am so happy with the second attempt.  The colours which I chose are the colour challenge from Make the Day Special. 

As for the mini penguins they are from the Lawn Fawn Critters in the Snow and I had to add one with a glasses!  The border stitched is also from Lawn Fawn.  I am also popping this into Uniko Studio challenge.

It's a working day tomorrow and I am planning to cycle to work!  Enjoy the rest of your day!

Craft Stamper - March Challenge

Did you see the eclipse this morning?  I was standing in the backyard at 9.30am and 10.30am but could see nothing because it was so cloudy but it was kind of dark!  I hope are you able to see something.

Today, I have a special card to share with lots of distressing. I have never done such graphic distressing before and love how it turned out- great for a guy! I stumbled upon Joan's blog and got interested in her card.

I used a lot of sentiments from different brands such as : Crafy Individual
Kaisercraft, Stamp-It Australia, Verve Stamps and Alte New.  I am popping this card into Craft StamperAddicted to StampsSeize the Birthday and Stamping Sensations.

Have a good weekend!

Freshly Made Sketches # 178

This week Lizzie Jones from PTI is showing a fun technique called Confetti Cluster stamping.  I am using the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and colour challenge from Colour Me to make this card.  I am also popping this card into Addicted to Stamps.

The base card on both sides are stamped with Reverse Confetti Very Stripey.  The kraft and white cardstock are run thru Lawn Fawn square stitch. 

The butterfly die cut are stamped with PTI Fancy Folk Art and machine-stitched on the border.  A piece of burlap is adhered onto the kraft cardstock followed by the stamped butterfly and a piece of vellum.  A row of sequin is added onto the middle part of the butterfly.

Thank you for taking your time to drop by!
