TKJ #251

I have not done double stamping for quite a while and thought today is a good time to do again.  The background stamping is first stamped in HA Bubblegum followed by HA unicorn inks.  Stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on a piece of vellum.

Added the top part of the stockings with velt and transparent sequins on the stamped snowflakes.

I am popping the above card into the following challenges :
The Kraft JournalAAA Cards and Simon Wednesday Challenge.

Materials used for the above card are :
HA Snowflakes, MFT Textile Background, Socks die, Grand Holiday Greetings, Basic Stitches and Paper Smooches.

Have a good start of the weekend!

PB and More

Temperature is dropping to 4 degrees celcius and we have wet snow and hail since yesterday.

This easel gift box is for a colleague.  The forest stencil is from Clear Scraps which I distressed in TH inks.  It was rather difficult to distress as the stencil is rather flimsy and it took a little bit extra time to work on it.

Lots of diecuts for this project : The frame diecut is from MFT; the Santa Claus and the reindeers die cut is from IO; sentiment is from Poppy Stamp and the side baubles are from Wild Rose Studio.

I added TH clear rock candy on the Santa & reindeers and the sentiments.

I am popping this project into the following challenges : Penny Black and MoreMerry Monday ChristmasAllsorts ChallengeInkspirational and Simon Wednesday.

can't really capture the glitters on the diecuts

Thank you for dropping by and have a good Sunday!

Share Joy #11

It's Tic Tac Toe challenge at Share Joy Challenge. For this card, I used TE Lavender Bouquet set and chose the following elements "thank you, flower and ribbon".  I am popping this into Inspirational Challenge and AAA Cards.

Stamped and heat embossed the image in silver and coloured in copics.  The background is stamped with SU Gorgeous Grunge.  Recently, I bought this new MFT Basic Stitch Lines and I am so happy with it as I can decide on the size of the cardstock and not limited to the pre-cut size.

Somehow the silver embossing does not pop up as it's in real

Thank you for dropping by!

OLC #21

Today's card is a one layer christmas challenge at OLC with an optional twist of reindeer.  Lots of masking for today's card.  First, I masked the border with a masking tape to create the frame and layered distressing for the background. The reindeer is from PB Prancers which is heat embossed in silver.

I would like to pop this into Penny Black and MoreThe Paper PlayersGlobal Design Project and Craft Stamper.

My prayers and thoughts are with the people in the terrible tragedy in Paris.

Merry Monday #170



Happy Friday!  Weather has been good to us for the last few days until now with storm and tropical rain!  Hope the weather is better at your place.

Another Christmas card by using the challenges from Merry Monday Christmas which is a colour challenge and  Take Your Pick at The Kraft Journal - I chose Top fold, stamped and seam binding.

I bought this PTI Topiary Trio sometime ago and hardly used it and thought it's a good idea to use it for a Christmas tree.  The background is stenciled in HA white unicorn and machined stitched along both borders.  The trees are stamped in two shades of greens and die cut - love the 3D look on the leaves.

The MFT snowdrift is added with TH clear rock candy and the houses are from SSS Village.  I used the sentiment from Poppy Stamps Vintage Merry Christmas.

I am popping this into Craft Stamper.

PB Saturday Dies/ Punch

Hiya, I have four cards to share today with lots of help with the CB.  Sometime ago, I mentioned that I will try to use more of the PB Glad Tidings set more often.  I am entering this into Penny Black Saturday and Allsorts challenges.

The background is stamped with HA Tiny Stars and heat embossed in pearl white. I like how the faded stars appeared on the background.

I trimmed off the sides of this sentiment.  Did a double bow

Embossed in silver

Sorry, that I have not been blogging lately but I am trying to catch up with you guys!  Have a good week ahead!

Freshly Made Sketches #209

Has it occurred to you as well that sometimes the simplest card is the best card? Here is a sketch from   Freshly Made Sketches.  The ingredients which I used are:
Lawn Fawn Stitched Party Banner, Hats off to you which is coloured in and added TH clear rock candy.  The sentiment is from MFT Grand Holiday Greetings which is heat embossed in red.

I am popping this card into One Layer Christmas - Stocking challenge.

New term is starting tomorrow and I know that I will have lesser time to make cards for the festive season.  So I made more cards by using the MFT Santa Socks. 

The top part of the socks are die cut from velt and dry embossed.

Thank you for taking time to drop by.  Have a good Sunday!
