Simon Says: It's A Dog's Life



Hello! I'm sharing a card today to take part in Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This week's theme is "It's A Dog's Life", and I have just the card for it!


I stamped this puppy stamp from Lili of the Valley on white cardstock and die-cut it with a circle die from Whimsy Stamps. I then colored it with promarkers.




I found this matching floral paper in my stash and used it as background paper, matting it with pink and red cardstock.



I adhered the colored image on the floral paper before adding twine, sentiment and lots of rhinestone around the image.

That's it from me for now. Thanks for visiting my blog!

Hello! Today my post is about a Christmas card I made for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge -- Simon Says: Christmas.




I created the background with a Simon Says Stamp stencil and distress oxide. I decided to deviate from the usual Christmas colors and instead create something in pastel colors. The color combination is simply gorgeous and I love the chalky feel of distress oxide!




To turn it into a Christmas card, I die-cut the words, Peace, Love and Joy from Penny Black dies in shimmer white cardstock. However, the words blended in with the busy background, so I die-cut the same words in pink as shadows. This allowed the white words to stand out from the background. 

Lastly, I added a grey snowflake die-cut at the bottom right corner of the card to have a little bit of winter. 

Supplies used are:
Simon Says Stencil Heart Mandala
Penny Black peace love dies
Distress oxides: picked raspberry, salty ocean, twisted citron

That's all I have for now. Till next time!

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 353

Hello!
I'm back today to share a card I made for the latest MFT challenge.



I decided to create a Kraft card, but started out with no idea on which MFT image to use. I finally settled on this cute fairy and coloured her up with pink and green shades.

I love creating shaker cards so couldn't resist filling the circle with lots of sequins and a beautiful floral background. 




I then decorated the card further with white floral stickers and butterflies for a whimsical feel. And of course, how can I miss out glitter? Lol. I coated the fairy wings, her dress and hair band with Wink of Stella for that glittery and magical feel!

That's it from me. Thanks for visiting my blog!

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge



Hello! Today, I'm back to take part in the SSS Wednesday Challenge, Anything Goes




I die-cut a fishtail banner with Create A Smile Die and adhered it on a doily, which I adhered  an A2 card. I then colored a sunflower stamp from Penny Black and adhered it in front of the fishtail banner. 




I found this Dream Big sentiment which I had die-cut earlier and it matches the color scheme perfectly! This sentiment die is from Penny Black and is one of my favorites.

The twine and star are all long-ago purchases in my stash and I am glad to be able to use them on this card (I need to reduce my stock of embellishments!).

I added some stickers and crystals to doll up the card, and used Wink of Stella on the sentiment and sunflower stamp, after which I decided, "Ok, this card has enough embellishments!" Lol

Lastly, I stuck the A2 card on a same-sized card base. Overall, I am pretty happy with how this card turned out. 

Thank you for visiting my blog!

Up, Up and Away!




Hello! I'm back this time with a cute birthday card. This is a 6" x 6" shaker card which I made for a friend's birthday.

I die-cut two balloon shapes on the patterned paper and filled it with sequins of varying colors. I then popped the patterned paper with foam tape before adhering it to the pink card base. 


I coloured and fuzzy-cut these cute stamps from Mama Elephant and also used a sentiment from the same stamp set. I adhered the sentiment before the boy so that I can position him to stand on the sentiment. I then used some twine to tie the balloons to the boy and girl to make it seem like they are each holding on to a balloon. 



Lastly, I adhered another boy holding on to a balloon on the inside of the card. This boy looks like he is being carried away by the big balloon, which I find so cute!

Supplies used:
  • Mama Elephant Carried Away
  • MFT party balloons dies


That's all for this card. Thanks for visiting my blog!

Congrats Bear


This card is something I did on a whim and on the fly (not for any challenges).


I took two bears I had die-cut earlier and quickly coloured them up. I had the patchwork-like background and alphabet die-cuts in my stash and decided to combine one of the bears with what I had to create a congrats card.


Didn't turn out too bad eh? lol

Supplies used:

  • Mama Elephant page huggers stamp set
  • Altenew inline alpha die set


Have a good weekend ahead!

Wishing everyone a happy life.

MFT September Challenges






I can't believe it. It's been two months since I last posted. Where did time go? Anyway, I'm back with a card for the MFT Sketch and Color Challenges. 

I found a pattern paper in the colors required by the MFT Color Challenge, and created a card in the layout of the Sketch Challenge. 



I stuck two cute MFT giraffes in the windows looking at each other with the sentiment, "Hello", like two friends greeting each other. It was hard to leave the right portion "blank" as I'm not used to such a layout but I did. Lol


This card is taking part in the following challenges:

Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 350

MFT Color Challenge 77


That's all from me. Have a good day (or evening)!

Cheers
