Verve Challenge - Chevron Chic

Kind of like the idea of chevron chic and decided to take the inspiration from the photo.

The chevron stamp is from HA and the sentiment set is from Verve Wishing You.

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!

AEI #4

  One more day and it's weekend.   Do you have any plan for this weekend?  As for me, I need to catch up with my beauty sleep as I feel so tired and also with tons of ironing that needed to be done!

Today, I am sharing a card at AEI Heart U Watercolour Challenge.  I stamped the set Let It Snow and heat embossed in white and water colour it.  The little house is from the set Icon Fill In the Blank and a burlap is adhered onto the cardstock.  The edges are paperpieced.


Enjoy your evening!

Curtain Call - Baby Booties

Hello everyone!  I don't usually make baby's cards but I needed them this year as a couple of my collegues are pregnant.

I am trying a new stamp from Craft Companion and I thought this stamp is so adorable.

As you can see, I am crazy about using spellbinders recently and I thought of sharing another one with you today.  I made 3 times of this die cut so that they can be made into a cardstock - one for the top and two for the inner and backing side.  I am also entering this card into Stamping Sensations.

The image is stamped and heat embossed in black and coloured in distress inks with water.  I prefer to make a neutral card as I don't know if the baby would be a girl or boy.

Added some stickles on the blanket.

Before I go off, I would like share with you that we are enjoying a lovely day today.  Thanks for dropping by.

LIM Colour Week #166

The weekend is almost coming to an end already and tomorrow is a working day for me.

I am using the colour challenge at Less is More and the theme of "Three Spree" at The Paper Players.

I just bought this new diecut from Memory box and thought it is great for this theme.  The border is from spellbinder and i added pearl accents on it too.  I am also entering this card into Stamping Sensations.

As you may know, I usually decorate the inside of the card but with this beautiful border diecut, there is no necessity to do it.

Good news!  The is leakage is fixed and we are now enjoying our new bathroom. Thank you for all your kind comments on the previous post.

Have a great week!

Reverse Confetti #11

Greetings from lovely weather from here.  Today, I am playing with a sketch from Reverse Confetti and a colour challenge from Colour Throwdown.  I would like to enter this card into The Card Concept challenge.

I am using the stripey set which are stamped in 3 different colours and die cut it with a fishtail from MFT.  I used the vellum for the butterfly die cut and added accent pearls. Added a rhinestone on one of the buttons.

The border is cut by using a spellbinder A2 Curved Border Two.

I am not too sure about the combination of the stripes with the lacy border but aiyaah if I don't try I will never know!

After 3 weeks of renovation, living in the dusts, frustrations and all the inconvenience caused, the bathroom and the toilets are ready.  Unfortunately, there is a hick-up and I must say it's a big one because there is a leakage in our kitchen.   This was due to the extra drain created for the bubble bath and the leakage is just right behind the cooking hood.  Finger cross that there is no major repair needed to be done.

In the meantime, I am happy to show you our new rooms....
