CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #261 – Sketch

Hello there!

I can’t believe it’s the last week in February and I only published four cards for CC&S on my blog. It’s an extremely busy month for me due to the celebration of Lunar New Year. The traditional celebration usually ends on the Lantern Festive which in on this Friday, then I can stay at my favorite crafty room longer.

This week our hostess, Patricia, has come up with a wonderful sketch to inspire us. (tap the figure below for the details at CAS Colours & Sketches).

I decided to create a card with the cheery blossoms and a lantern to celebrate the Lantern Festive.

Here is how I’ve used the sketch…

  1. Create a top-folded A2 card base and stamp the sentiment on the left corner .
  2. Die cut the classic window frame from white card stock.
  3. Stamp, color and die cut the cherry blossoms and the lantern.
  4. Layer and adhere the images on A2 card base.

Thank you for spending some time with me.

I hope you can head on over to the CC&S blog to enter the challenge and to see more inspiration from the awesome Design Team.


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.

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!
