Coffee Lovers Bloghop

Did you know that today is National Coffee Day?  I love coffee.  I will be participating in the Coffee Lovers Bloghop initiated by Chiatali. 

This is a card which I made in 10 minutes by using my one and only coffee stamp from Hero Arts.   Quick and direct card by using washi tape on the background of the coffee cup!

Thanks for dropping and happy hopping!

RC-Sept Challenge

Hmm... love the September colour challenge from Reverse Confetti.

I am using RC Petal N Posies for this card which are stamped in pink and yellow for the flowers and the gray for the leaves.  Added a small piece of burlap on the background. The sentiment is from Lots to Say which is heat embossed on a piece of vellum.  As for the background, dry embossed and dotted with pearl pen.

Thanks for dropping by and have a great week ahead.

CAS (E) #94

Hiya!  I have not used my stencil for a while now and thought today it would give me a reason to pull it out.  Using the sketch and colour challenges from CAS (E)ColourQ and the tic-tac-toe from Flickr SSS.

The polka dots stencil is from MFT which is distressed randomly in three colours.  The sentiment is from SSS.  Thinking of putting this into my masculine box but I don't think it looks masculine at all!  I am also popping this into SSS Wednesday Challenge.

Have a great weekend!

PTI Septmber Blog Hop

Yeah! It's the time of the month again for PTI September Blog Hop.  This is the first time that I am hopping along.  I have chosen the following colour and sketch recipes for my card.

The little square on the corner is de-bossed with spellbinder Captivating Square and the flower is from PTI Friend Flower.  I am also popping this into Simon Wednesday Challenge.

Thank you for taking time to drop by.

LIM #190

Face The Music and Dance is the challenge at Less Is More.  My son is turning 16 next week and he likes to play guitar.  I used my own inspiration from my daughter's card which you can see here.  I like how the DMC threads look on the card and this time instead of drawing the notes, I managed to find the music dies from Memory Box.  Added some glossy accent on the notes. The guitar is cut from paper patterned which was bought several years ago.  I am also popping this card into Simon Wednesday Challenge with "Anything Goes" and Addicted to Stamps.

As a 16 years old, he only wanted a gift card, so here is the envie on the inner card.  The "happy"sentiment is from Technique Tuesday and the "birthday"is from PTI.  The flap of the envelope is stamped with the HA Music Background.

Today has been raining and I guess autumn is really here....

Merry Monday #126

I made this several days ago but forgot to post it at Merry Monday Challenge and the time is closing soon.  The challenge is to make the sentiment the star of the card and I chose HA Greatest Gift which is heat embossed in gold.

The card may look pretty simple but it took me so long to arrange the inner layering which is the diecut fromspellbinders Scalloped Borders 2 and the gold frame Labels 18.

Added some transparent sequins and a vellum snowflakes on the corner.

Enjoy your Sunday!  Tomorrow is a working day for me and am planning to cycle to work again with a returned journey of 30km!

Festive Friday #40

When I saw the challenge at Festive Friday, I knew I had to play along.  I was inspired by all the pinks and shimmery on the cabinet.

Here is my take.  The brown cardstock is stamped in expresso with HA Greatest Gift.  It might seems that I have tons of snowflakes diecuts on this card but in actual fact, I only used two diecuts.  If you look closely each snowflakes are trimmed into a smaller size to give a different snowflakes.  The snowflakes are diecut onto a glittered cardstock which I bought last year.

Thanks for taking your time to drop by.
