MFT Colour Palette Challenge #9

So cool that this week, I only need to work half a day as Monday was a study day and today is a special holiday in our region!  That gives me time to catch up with my card making and housework as well, as I was not feeling well the last two days.

I am using the colour challenge from MFT to make this card.  The MFT wreath is die cut in two colours and for some reason I wanted to stamp the sentiment from SSS Thinking of You onto an acetate and instead of making it into a shaker card, I just glued the sequins behind the acetate.  The three flowers are also from SSS set.

Thank you for taking time to drop by.

PS 7-13 September

My initial plan was to make something quick for my niece's birthday but I ended doing something extra for her.

I started with this quick and easy gift card by using a piece of envelope which is converted into a gift card.  You can check it out here - it's quick addictive.

As I am not very good in using patterned paper, I usually ended up stamping the background and this one is from MFT. The cute little flower is from PS Perky Plant which is heat embossed and coloured in.

I am popping this into Make The Day Special challenge as I am using their sketch as well and Stamplorations.

I wanted to leave the white embossed empty but changed my mind as I wanted to use all the mini stamps which filled up the space a little.

Then, I decided to add something extra to the gift card.  I made a matching gift box as well!  Did some paper-piercing as well on the plant.

Back of the gift box - nothing is wasted

Wah-lah!  The matching gift set!
Thanks for your sweet comments!

Make The Day Special September Sketch

Yay, it's Friday and the weather has been absolutely beautiful for the last few days.

Today, I am using the SU thinlit dies for Make The Day Special sketch challenge.

The front part of the turnable circle is from Lawn Fawn Critters in the Snow which is heat embossed and distressed.  The backside of the circle is a sentiment from HA.  The background is from HA Snowflakes which are heat embossed in white and silver.  Clear sequins are added onto the background.  I am popping this into Stamplorations challenge.

Have a great weekend!

SSS Flickr #1

Monday was the first of school for all the reception classes.  All of them are so cute and adorable and seeing some of the parents leaving their children behind with emotional feelings reminded me of my time.  Anyway, it was a tough but rewarding working with the children.  There are so much to teach them even to the simplest thing like sitting still for 5 minutes which does not exist in their vocabulary.  Some of them even asked me if I could put on their shoes (mainly because there were lazy) which we are not allowed to help as they must learn to do it themselves.  

Enough of the school.  Have you heard of the new challenge over at Simon Says Flickr Challenge? I happen to have a couple of SSS stamp sets and am happily participating their first challenge.  I am also submitting this card into SSS Work It Wednesday.

It's colour challenge and we are required to use a minimum of 3 colours.  I decided to use the set Scribble Flowers which are stamped in 3 different colours and the sentiment is from Banner Sayings.  The banner diecut is from Lawn Fawn.


Thanks for dropping by.

AEIHeart U #15

Happy Sunday to all! My daughter, Claire and I would like thank all of your sweet wishes for her 14th birthday.

A friend of mine needed a new home card and immediately I thought of using the Avery Elle Fill-in-the-Blank die cut.  The die cut is cut into several colours which I used the colour challenge from Colour Throwdown.  As I wanted some skyline onto the card, I stacked up a few of the houses into a high rise building accompanied by some colourful houses.  The background embossing is from SU.

The sentiment is die cut several times in orange and top up with white to give an orange shade to the whole.

Have a great Sunday!

Seize the Birthday

Today's is my little girl's birthday and she turns 14!!  Gosh!  Time really flies! She loves playing piano and started when she was 5 years old when we were living in Helsinki - actually she wanted to start when she was 4 but the piano teacher said that her fingers were too small and it's advisable that she wait another year.  From then on she never stop playing.

As I do not have many music stamps, I decided to take her piano book and drew the notes - just don't ask me what notes are they as I can't read them at all. The notes were coloured in copics and heat embossed in clear to give the shine! The strings are from DMC cross-stitches thread which I have tons of them as I like cross-stitching years ago.

The sentiment is from Reverse Confetti which I think is a perfect way of combining the music notes - if I can meet the challenge from Time Out Challenges. I would also like to enter this card into Seize the Birthday.

This is the inside of the card whereby I used half the envelope to make into a gift card.  I decorated the envie with a piece of black cardstock and added the sentiment.  A piece of music notes is adhered onto the flap of the envie. 

Thanks for dropping by and have a great weekend!

PTI MIM-#178

This week is the first week of school and although the reception children are not in school yet till next week, we had to do some home visits.  I like the home visits as it gives an idea of the environment where the children comes from - not totally though!

Today, I am sharing an easel card with the tutorial from Erin Lincoln.  As one of my nieces birthday is on Friday, I decided to make this easel card for her.  I am going to pop this into Simon Says Anything Goes.

Sorry, I have not been around too much but I am hoping to pick up my mojo soon.
