MFT Color Challenge 69

Hello! This round's MFT color challenge got me thinking about making a bookmark instead of a card. I used MFT's Bundles of Blossom BG stamp to make two bookmarks.

For the first bookmark, I simply blended some distress inks together on both sides of the bookmark. I used peacock feathers, pickled raspberry, squeezed lemonade and twisted citron. 

On the other side of the bookmark, I added a sentiment from a Penny Black stamp set.

For the second bookmark, I decided to use color pencils, and regretted it almost immediately. There were just too many flowers and details on this stamp to color! Lol. However, I was pretty happy with the outcome. The bookmark looked so pretty with all the colors!

I used squeezed lemonade to lightly distress the back of the bookmark.

As mentioned, these cards are for the MFT Color Challenge 69.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and have a good day/ evening ahead. :)

Black, White and Bright!

I have wanted to use this Lawn Fawn Fairies stamp set for the longest time but didn't get around to it till recently.

I was wondering how to use this beautiful piece of designer paper when inspiration struck and I decided to use this paper as the background for the fairies.

I used Pink and Main's Hello die as the focus and placed the fairies around it. I added the cute little lamp to the purple fairy as though she was lighting up the Hello.

I added shimmer to all the fairies to give them a magical feel.

I couldn't decide which fairy to leave out so I used them all! Lol

I'm submitting this card for the following challenges:

Thank you for visiting  my blog and have a good day or good night!


A lot of Pink!


I created this birthday card few weeks ago for a close friend, which fits this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge theme, A Hint of Pink. Well, it was more than a hint though. Lol.

I die-cut the circles using stitched circle dies from SSS, and added acetate to create shaker windows. I then added a sentiment and mix of pink and white sequins before sticking the card front to the card base.

For the bottom window, I decide to have this cute little pig peeping through to the inside of the card. I must admit it was a "delicate operation" to ensure that the circle windows for both card front and base match! 

Overall, this card took up more time than expected but I got so much satisfaction out of making it!

I am participating in the following challenges with this card:
