Guesting at Inkspiration – Use Vellum

Hello there!

I am thrilled to be guest designing at Inkspirational Challenges for the challenge “Use Vellum".

The theme, vellum, is kind of tricky for me. After a long term consideration, I decided to create a scene looks blurry through the vellum paper because of my presbyopic problem.

Here is my creation…


  1. Create an A2 card base from white card stock.
  2. Trim a rectangle from watercolor paper to 4″ × 5.25″ as the front panel. Apply spiced marmalade & squeezed lemonade distress inks with mini ink blending tool for the background.
  3. Die cut the rolling hill from watercolor paper. Blend fossiled amber distress ink on the hill and brushed corduroy distress ink on the fence.
  4. Die cut a grassy hill from watercolor paper and blend mustard seed distress ink.
  5. Die cut the tree trunks from brown card stock.
  6. Stamp, color and die cut the images.
  7. Trim a rectangle from vellum paper to 4″ × 5.25″. Die cut the glasses.
  8. Die cut the glasses frame from brown card stock.
  9. Layer and adhere all the pieces mentioned above to card base with double sided tape and glue dots.

Thanks for spending some time with me.
I hope you can head on over to the Inkspirational Challenge blog to enter the challenge and to see more inspiration from the awesome Design Team.

AAA Cards Challenge #110 – Ombre

First of all, I want to thank to the DT at AAA Cards Challenge for offering me an opportunity to be a guest designer.

Today I am sharing a birthday card featuring Ombre for the guest designer’s post at AAA Cards Challenge.(Please tap the figure below for the details at AAA Cards)

Here is how I’ve created…

  1. Created a top-folded A2 card base.
  2. Stamp the candles on watercolor paper with Cracked Pistachio, Lucky Clover and Pine Needles Distress inks, then die cut. (Thanks to MISTI for stamping the candles over ten times without any shift!)
  3. Die cut the flames and the tiny hearts from watercolor paper and color with Copic Markers (YR04, Y17, Y13, R29).
  4. Arrange and layer the images on A2 card base.
  5. Stamp the sentiment with black ink.

Thank you for spending some time with me!
