A Special Note of Thanks

Hello there!

Today I am sharing a card with a different style I used to have. It’s all about black & white.

  1. Create a top-fold A2 card base.
  2. Stamp You Matter BG with Versa Mark on black card stock and white embossed.
  3. Die cut the scallop edge from white card stock and stamp the sentiment with black ink.
  4. Die cut the flowers from vellum paper, black and white card stocks.
  5. Layer the flowers with foam tapes & add a black pearl in the middle as the stamen.
  6. Layer all the elements on A2 card base .

CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #255

Hello there!

Since it’s the third week of the month, we are having a colour challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.

This week our hostess, Beverley, has come up with the wonderful color combination to inspire us. (tap the figure below for the details at CC&S)

Here is how I used the color combination…

  1. Mask paper was applied on A2 card base for stenciling the background.
  2. The sun ray was stenciled with Distress Tumble Glass ink with mini ink blending tool.
  3. The sentiment was stamped with black ink at the bottom of the stenciled sun ray.
  4. The hot air balloon was colored with Copic markers & die cut.
  5. The image wad adhered with foam tapes over the stenciled background.

Thank you for spending some time with me.

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

I am Totally Grateful

Hello there!

Since it’s the last week of the semester, I need some cards for my girls’ teachers. I used the sketch from Freshly Made Skeches to create a Thank You Card.

Here is how I’ve used the sketch…

  1. Creat a top-fold card base.
  2. Blend Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink on the left & right edge of the card base.
  3. Cut two strips from patterned paper. Adhere them to the card base beside the blended area.
  4. Blend Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink on watercolor paper.
  5. Die cut the roses from the distress blended paper and silver sparkle card stock.
  6. Stamp the sentiment with Versa Mark on black card stock and heat emboss with Cactus Flower embossing powder.
  7. Layer the roses & the sentiment on the card base.

Hello there!

Today I am sharing a Thank You card with some of my new goodies.

A yellow patterned paper was trimmed into a stripe.

  2. The front panel was cut three times with a mini hexagon die (one of my new goodies) in a row down.
  3. The bees were colored with Copic markers & were die cut.
  4. The sentiment was stamped on black card stock with Versa Mark & was heat embossed with Ranger Sunflower embossing powder( another one of new goodies).
