Take It Make It Challenge Jan. 2015

There are some changes over at Craft Stamper that they are going to alternate their challenge themes each month.  This month's theme is "Take a Stamp" - sounds easy, right?

Today, I am going a little bit different than my usual style which occasionally I do like it as it gives me a kick!

The first panel is stamped in versafine with MFT Woodgrain.  The smaller panel is by using Craft Emotions Star stencil which is dabbed in TH distress inks: pickled rassberry, wild honey,  mustard seed and pickled feathers.  Then the panel is spritzed in pearl Tattered Angels and the sentiment is from Kaisercraft Curiosity which is stamped with TH vintage photo. I also stamped the sentiment on a white cardstock and cut out "Enjoy" and added glossy accent onto it.

It's freezing over here and am glad that there is still no snow as I find it scary to cycle with the snow on the roads.

Thanks for dropping by and have a good Friday!

CMCC #55

Another masculine card by using this colour challenge from Colour Me and I hope it's masculine enough.  The stamp for the circle is from HA which is heat embossed in white and distressed in several colours.  The tv set is from PS.  The sentiment is distressed on a white cardstock with the same colours as the circle.  The banner is from MFT fishtail and the card is finished with some white sequins.  I am popping this into Paper Smooches Sparks - Anything Goes and Stempel Kueche challenges.

Thanks for dropping by!

The Kraft Journal #206

Today's card is taking 3 picks from the table from The Kraft Journal.  I decided to choose die-cut, glitter and embossing.

The side border is by using MFT polka dots stencil with paste embossing on the kraft paper.  For this card, I used SSS Thinking of You set which is heat embossed in white and coloured in colour pencil.  Added some glitters and pearl accent onto the flowers.  The sentiment is also from SSS You set.  I am also popping this card into Simon Says Flickr and Stempel Kueche challenges.

 Sigh.... need to go to work tomorrow, the weekend is too short!

CAS (E) this Sketch #106

Sorry, I have not been around lately as my mojo is still somewhere in the tropical country especially with all the storms and rains over here but I am glad that I managed to make a card today for 3 challenges.  Using the sketch from CAS(E) this sketch, colour challenge from Colour Me and using the foam stickers from MIM.  I am also popping this into StampNation Birthday and Simon Says - It's a Guy Thing.

I used the PTI Trendy Trees set for this card.  As for the sentiment, I cheated a little by die-cutting the sentiment 3 times and the last one with a glittered thin foam.  Adhered all the die-cuts together.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Color Throwdown #324

Hello everyone,

I am back from the warm country about two weeks ago but as usual, it took awhile before my mojo is back again.  If I am still not too late, I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year!

I am starting off this year with a Valentine card for a card drive which is organised by Winter Wonderland and using the colour inspiration from Color Throwdown.

The banner set is from SU.  As this card is heading to the hospital, there is nothing of buttons, glitters, sequins or anything that can be pulled out as it might pose as a choking hazard!

Besides visiting Malaysia this year, we flew to Krabi, Thailand for a couple of days for snorkeling and rafting.  Although, the flying was only an hour, the weather was surprisingly different from Malaysia as the humidity in Krabi was lower which made it very pleasant to walk around.  Here are a couple of photos from Krabi...

Krabi is a small town and as I understood that there were only three traffic lights and I spotted this zebra crossing!

CASology - Silver


It's already Thursday and in a couple of day's time we will be flying off to Malaysia and I need to work another day!

Today's card involved lots of dies and they are mainly from Poppy Dies with some combination from Lawn Fawn and MFT.  All the dies are die cut in silver cardstock except the star which is in gold.  This time I cheated by using a blue cardstock and distressed lightly with TH broken china and faded jeans -I have never done this before and I am pretty pleased with the result.  I finished the card with some gold sequins on the tree.

I am entering this card into the following challenges : CASology, Poppy StampsMerry Monday Christmas, and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge.

Have you finished making all your Christmas cards?  I am so happy that I managed to send out all my christmas cards to the international contacts and now I am rushing thru for the locals.

I am not too sure if I will be posting one before I go off but in case I am not, I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Thank you for always taking your precious time to drop by.

Lawnscaping Challenge #95

White on White is the challenge for Lawnscaping Challenge.  I am going for several textures this time.

The background is by using SSS snow stencil with glittered paste.  Die cut the star onto a white felt and machine-stitched.

The little reindeer is heat embossed and sprayed some glue on it and sprinkled some glitter clear candy rock. The sentiment is from PTI.  Finally, I can't resist giving the reindeer a red nose!

I am also popping this into SSS Flickr Challenge.

Thanks for taking dropping by and have a lovely weekend!
