TKJ #219

"Take Your Pick" at the The Kraft Journal and I have opted for "Blue, Embossed and Bakers Twine" for my card.

This is a one-layer card.  Cut a piece of blue cardstock and die-cut the border with spellbinders Border One and adhered onto the kraft cardstock. The flower die cuts is from MFT, added a bow twine and top it off with a pearl.  The sentiment is from PTI which is heat embossed in white.

I wanted a third leave and decided to die-cut it in vellum to soften the kraft.

Thanks for dropping by.

Craft Stamper Challenge April

Lots of masking, heat embossing and colouring for today's card-we need to see more spring!  This is a one-layer card.  First, I masked the sentiment followed by all the flowers - yes, flower by flower, I heat embossed all of them.

Then I trimmed the edges of the flowers followed by the colouring therapy which occasionally relax my mind.  Thereafter, I dotted in white gel on the flowers and added glitters in the middle of the flowers.

The sets which I used for today are from HA Stitched Frames and Truly Appreciated.

I am popping this into the monthly challenge at Craft StamperSimon Wednesday Challenge.

The Kraft Journal #217


What are you doing for Easter?  We are having dinner with my in-laws and I am planning to cook malaysian fried rice - something simple as I am down with a cold!  

Here is a Easter basket which I made for my sister-in-law since we are having dinner at her place.  The kraft is stamped in HA white unicorn with MFT Woodgrain as I wanted it to be white washed wood. The bump of the bunny is created by several die cuts and the tail is from velt. The bunny is sure diving into the basket for easter eggs!  Added some paper grass and die cut some tulips which I simply swiped with the ink. The handle is from SU punch.

I am entering this project  intoThe Kraft JournalAllsorts Challenge and Verve Stamps.

Love the white washed look of the woodgrain

Have a Blessed Easter!

MFT Sketch Challenge #222

Hi peep!  Sorry have not been around as we are having some minor renovation going in-house - replacing our fireplace.  Although, I say minor but actually the whole house is in such a mess and I am literally living in the dust! Can't wait for it to be over.  If only there was a choice, I would do all renovations before moving into this house!!

Anyway, here is a card by using the sketch MFT card challenge.  I don't usually make "Thinking of You" card but Taylored Expressions is running a Share Joy Campaign.  Check out all the details here.  I would like to enter this card into The Challenge.
For this card, the background is heat embossed in white by using the stamp set from PTI Background Basics-Super Stripey.  Then, I watercoloured it by using TH distress ink Evergreen Bough-love the minty look.  The die cut is also from PTI.  The roses are from MFT Blooming Roses and the sentiment is from HA Everyday Saying and the sentiment die cut is from SSS You.  Added some glitters on the roses and metalic twine. 

Yay!  The long weekend is here and we will be spending time cleaning the mess at home.  Any plans for the long weekend!

Thank you for dropping by!
