Wishing You a Wild Birthday

Hello there!

Have I mentioned that my hubby started writing birthday cards to his students this summer?

My hubby put  cards on the desks of the students on their birthdays. When they stepped into the classroom, took the card out of the envelope and read the words, most of them cried with tears. 

Sending love and comfort is the most important reason I make cards.

After finishing forty holiday cards, it’s time to be back with birthday cards.

  1. The pony and the alligator were colored with Copic markers and were die cut.
  2. White card stock was trimmed into 4″ x 5.25″as front panel.
  3. Two circles were die cut partially at the corners from the front panel.
  4. Distress Oxide inks were applied on A2 card base for the opening round space.
  5. All the pieces were layered on A2 card base with double sided tapes and foam tapes to fit the sketch.

When You’re Not Here…

Hello there!

You must be enjoying Christmas holidays with your family. Since we don’t have Christmas holidays in Taiwan, I stay in my crafty room with my girls as usual.

Today I am sharing a card with a dog standing in front of the window.  The image came from a memory. When my girls were little, they were always looking outside the window and waiting for dad to be home.

  1. The stripe behind the window was die cut from Kraft card stock which was stamped with wood plank background.
  2. The starry sky was die cut from watercolor paper, then Distress inks were applied on it.
  3. A piece of silver sparkle card stock was adhered behind the starry sky.
  4. The window was die cut from white card stock.
  5. The dog was colored with Copic markers and was die cut.
  6. All the pieces were layered on A2 card base to fit the sketch.

Happy 2018

Hello there!

I was busy preparing a card-making class for fifty teenagers on this weekend. Since they don’t have any crafty tools like cutting machines or stamps, I have to precut a bunch of pieces of card stock and pre-make a sample card for them.

Today I am sharing a New Year’s card for the class with you.

  1. A Wonky Stitched Rectangle was die cut from white card stock and was embossed with an embossing folder as the front panel.
  2. Gold watercolor paint was splashedwith a pen brush on the front panel.
  3. The balloons were die cut from watercolor paper.
  4. Distress Oxide inks were applied on the balloons with mini blending tools.
  5. The numbers “2018” were die cut from gold sparkle card stock.
  6. All the pieces were layered on A2 card base with double sided tapes and foam tapes.

Sending a Snowfall of Blessings Your Way

Hello there!

Today I am sharing a X’mas card that was inspired by Time Out Challenge – Home Sweet Home Photo Challenge.

When my girls were 2 & 3, we created some snowflakes which were made from Arclyc paint & white glue. When the snowflakes were air dried, we stuck them on the window glass as window stickers.

I tried to recreate the scene I’ve rememberd!

  1. The window frame was die cut from white card stock. 
  2. The snowflakes were stamped with white Pigment ink on acetate sheet as the window glass.
  3. The wooggrain background was stamped on Kraft card stock.
  4. The window opening space was die cut from the Kraft card stock mentioned above.
  5. Snowfall was die cut from Summer Spalash card stock as the scene outside the window.
  6. All the pieces were layered on A2 card base.

Hello there!

Today I wad sharing a New Year’s card with sparkle.

I have been  doing a project with a seasonal sketch at CAS Colours & Sketches for weeks.

I decided to create a X’mas card and a New Year’s card. The X’mas one was published at the recent CAS Colours & Sketches blog’s post here.  And this one was for entering the challenges.

The sentiment was typed and was printed.

The glasses was die cut with silver sparkle and gold sparkle card stocks.

The confettis were die cut with gold shine card stock.

Is it too shiny? But I like it!
