Thank you shaker card with lovely Fuchsias

Happy Thursday my crafty friends!

Today I am brave enough to share this shaker card with you. I’ve been in love with all Pretty Pink Posh Flower releases and I had no guts to try them due to my poor coloring skill and lack of creative imagination. But I could not hold it back anymore and ordered all of them last week from Butterfly Reflections Ink.  This one I am using is called Flourishing Fuchsias which became my number 1 favorite of their flower images.

To begin with, I ink blended Tim Holtz distress oxide ink in Pickled Raspberry and Wilted Violet on to a piece of Tim Holtz distress watercolor paper. I mixed the ink from Pickled Raspberry with water and randomly splattered on inked background by tapping on a watercolor brush. While I was waiting for the background to air dry, I die cut the frame using a die similar to Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Frame die out of Neenah Solar white cardstock 110lbs 6 times and glued 5 of them together using Multi Medium Matte to create the base of frame. Then I stacked a piece of acetate paper on the top of this base and close it up with another piece of die cut frame.

Now it is time to decorate the background. I stamped “Thank you” sentiment from Pretty Pink Posh Everyday Greetings Stamp set using Versafine black ink and arranged some of Pretty Pink Posh Jewels in Pink Blush. I chose two kinds of sequins as free movements for this shaker card. One is Pretty Pink Posh 3mm Sparkling Clear sequins and another one is Pretty Pink Posh sequins in Fairytale Fuchsia.

For preparing the images, I stamped all images onto Strathmore Bristol smooth surface paper and colored them using Kuretake Clean Color Real brush markers, then I hand fussy cut them. I arranged them onto the upper left corner of the frame so its more like natural of Fuchsia flowers and it also gave space for the sentiment. I did final touch by adding a few Pretty Pink Posh 4mm Clear droplets as well.

There you have it! My first flowery card! I hope many more would come. We always learn while we are trying. Right?

You make me smile

Happy Mother’s day! I hope everyone had a great day today. Hubby and my daughter decided to take me to San Francisco for a Mother’s day splurge. We went to my favorite Macaroon and Pastry stores in Daly city, and we also enjoyed a great authentic Chinese meal. Before we headed out, I made this card with Pretty Pink Posh May release stamp set called Playful Puppies.

First of all, I stamped all images with Memento ink in Tuxedo Black on Neenah Solar white 80lbs cardstock, then colored them with copic markers. I’ve been in love with the color combination of pink and blue lately, so I pulled out Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Picked Raspberry and Salty Ocean to create my background. I smudged the ink pads onto a laminated paper, then I sprayed water over them to make inked water mixture. I used a size #8 round brush applying ink water mixture separately onto a piece of Tim Holtz distress watercolor paper and dried with my heat tool. Then I made the ink water mixture slightly more concentrated and splattered over the background by tapping the brush handle.

Once the panel was dried, I trimmed it slightly smaller than an A2 card and rounded four corners. To create the window, I die cut it with Pretty Pink Posh Story Book 4 die. I ink blended background windows with same inks to match the panel.

I wanted to create a shaker window, so I adhered foam tape on the back of panel to attach the card base. I stamped “You make me smile” sentiment from Pretty Pink Posh Encouraging Greeting Stamp set and I added Pretty Pink Posh Jewels in Pink Blush , Sea Glass and 3mm Sparkling Clear sequins inside of windows before I closed them up. I assembled all images onto the top of card using Multi Medium Matte and Foam tape. At last, I added a few Jewels to fill up some spots.

I truly love this stamp set very much and I hope I could make more cards to share with you all. Pretty Pink Posh is having 15% off for all products on their website until tomorrow. Don’t forget to take advantage of this awesome sale. I will see you soon!

Mama I love you!

My new Pretty Pink Posh order is almost here. I am here demonstrating how we could stretch our stamp use. This stamp set is called Winter Wonderland. But who says it can only be used in Winter? I am going to rock it and make it into a Spring Mother’s day card!

In order to make it work, I stamped images onto Neenah Solar white 80lbs cardstock paper with Memento ink in Rich Cocoa. I did a little bit alternations such as cutting the holly leaves off the tree branch and removing the bunny off the tree log. Then I colored them with Copic markers and set aside.

I created the background using Tim Holtz distress oxide ink in Twisted Citron, Picked raspberry and Salty Ocean very slightly blended them onto a piece of Tim Holtz distress watercolor paper. I splattered some ink and water mixture onto the paper and dried it with my heat tool. I cut the window out of Pretty Pink Posh Storybook 5 die. I decided not to do a shaker card at this time but I still would like to have some dimension for the window. I adhered foam tape to pop up this window.

 

Assembling was always fun and easy. I used Multi Medium Matte and foam tape here and there. I noticed the bottom side of window were kinda empty. I pulled out some pre colored flowers and foliage images from Pretty Pink Posh  Bunny Friends stamp set .  I used one of sentiment stamp from Pretty Pink Posh Love Sentiments stamp set and stamped it with Memento ink in Rich Cocoa.

To finish off this card,  I added some Pretty Pink Posh Jewels in Blush and 4mm Sparkling Clear Sequins so all pieces could be working well with each other.

 

That’s about it. Now why don’t you try a seasonal stamp set and turn it into something different and fun?!

Hello from your sea friends

I am so happy to see Pretty Pink Posh came out with gorgeous release yesterday. I just placed my order yesterday and hopefully I will receive them ASAP. I cannot stop being excited so I pulled out this Sea Friends stamp set and had a little bit warm up.

To begin with, I stamped all images on Neenah Solar white paper 80lbs with Memento Tuxedo Black. Then I colored them with copic markers.

I created ocean background using Tim Holtz distress oxide in Cracked Pistachio, Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon and Salty Ocean with ink blending technique. I splattered water over the ink background and removed droplets with a piece of paper towel. Then I cut windows using Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Pieces die. I used foam tape to pop the dimension so I could create shaker windows.

I assembled all colored images onto the background using Multi Medium Matte and Foam tape. To fill in the shaker windows, I added Pretty Pink Posh 3mm Clear sparkling sequins.  I also adhered some Pretty Pink Posh Jewels in Aquamarine and Sea Glass to make this Undersea scene more fun.

Hope you guys like this card and I will see you soon for more creations!

 

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 27-3D Cards

I have been being a Lawn Fawn fan for a while, but I’ve never tried to participate any of Fawnatics Challenges. I decided to have fun with current one and see how it goes. This challenge runs 3 weeks. The topic is all about 3D cards. I owned a few Lawn fawn 3d card dies. So I decided to go with shadow box die this time.

First of all, I colored images with copic markers from Lawn Fawn Mom and me Stamp set and set aside. I cut the box frame out of lawn fawn Shadow box card die and ink blended outside surface with Tim Holtz Distress oxide in Tattered Rose. For the stitched hillside die cuts that came with Shadow box card die, I ink blended them with Tim Holtz Distress oxide in Lucky Clover, Peacock Feather and a little bit Black soot, then I splattered some water over them and removed droplets with a piece of paper towel. That way, the color overall won’t be too saturated. I attached them to inside of box frame. The basic box card was formed.

I cut a piece of piece that fits into the background of box and ink blended with Tim Holtz distress oxide in Fossilized Amber. Worn Lipstick (for Sunset sky). Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio (for Grass). I die cut some tree trunks using Lawn Fawn Birch Trees die and inked with Tim Holtz distress oxide in Gathered Twigs and I die cut some leaves using Lawn Fawn Leafy tree backdrop landscape die and inked with  Tim Holtz distress oxide in Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feather. After assembled trunks and leaves, I randomly attached them to each layers inside of box.

Assuming it is in Spring, we need blooming flowers of course. I cut several leaf branches out of Lawn Fawn Large Wreath die and inked them with Tim Holtz distress oxide in Twisted Citron and Cracked Pistachio. Again, I attached them in all different places to create 3d effect. I die cut flower border and flowers out of Lawn Fawn flower hillside pop-up add-on dies and colored them with my copic markers. I gathered everything I prepared and assembled them to all places my gut feelings told me to.

At last, I used the banner stamp from Lawn Fawn Bannertastic stamp set and cut it with coordinating die. To fit into this banner, I used the sentiment from Lawn Fawn Mom and me stamp set. My first shadow box card was made!

You’re the best Chapter of My Life

Good morning!

I am showing you a card that I created for Isabel Cristina Digital Stamps. The name of this stamp set is called Reading Bunnies.  Spring is finally here. It is really a love and hate situation. My daughter has been struggling with allergies and showing lots of typical seasonal allergic symptoms such as itchy and red eyes, running and stuffy nose, and such. As a mom, it is hard to see my 11 years old baby suffering and I have no solutions other than Claritin and eye drops. Now I sincerely hope for summer so my baby can feel much better.

Before I am going too far with my topic, let us talk about this card. Isabel designs cutest bunnies ever with all kinds of accessory stamps, so it was a piece of cake to put them together to create a scene. I printed all images and colored them with Copic markers and set aside. Then I did ink blending technique using Tim Holtz Distress oxide in Salty Ocean on to a piece of Tim Holtz Distress watercolor paper.

To create the grass, I cut them out of another watercolor paper using Lawn Fawn grass hillside border die and inked with Tim Holtz Distress oxide in Twisted Citron and Cracked Pistachio.

After arranged images onto the background, I used Nuvo crystal drops in Carnation Pink and Sweet Lilac to pop up some colors in the grass. I stamped the sentiment from My favorite things Our Story stamp set using Memento ink in Tuxedo Black. At last, I cut the frame using a die from Mama Elephant Frame Tags and add it on to the background.

Hooray!!!  We just created a lovely card! Be sure to check out Isabel’s shop when you get a chance. Her stamps are in very reasonable price! See you soon with another project!

 

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter and Happy April Fool!

How could these two holidays land on the same day?! I don’t know but it happened. I have this card to share with you all, my crafty friends!

I colored all images with Copic markers from Pretty Pink Posh Bunny Friends Stamp set and cut with coordinating dies. Then set them to aside. I grabbed a piece of Tim Holtz distress watercolor paper and cut it with Lawn Fawn Large Cross stitched rectangle die. I smudged Distress oxide in Squeezed Lemonade and Cracked Pistachio on glass surface, then sprayed some water over it. I pushed the watercolor paper against this color mixture and dry it with heat tool. We are done with the background.

I cut 3 egg shaped frame out of Pretty Pink Posh Decorative egg dies and raised them up with a little bit foam tape. Then I assembled all images with foam tape and Multi Medium Matte.

I stamped the sentiment to the upper corner of background using Memento ink in Tuxedo black. At last, I added some Pretty Pink Posh Jewels in Sea Glass and Lemon Drop.

Hope you all have a great Sunday! I will see you around pretty soon!

I also cute tags using Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Square Tags Die and added white square paper on the top.  I decorated it with colored images and Pretty Pink Posh Spring Green Jewels.

PPP March Product Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

march2018hop

Hi Crafty Friends,

I am so honored to join Pretty Pink Posh for their March Product release blog hop. I am madly in love with this brand lately. I started to hoard their products like no tomorrow. If you are one of my Instagram followers, you probably know what I am talking about. I immediately created a few projects out of the March release products. I am showing two of them here to tease you a little.

For my first card I used a sweet stamp set called Bunny Friends and Bunny Friends Coordinating dies. For my background I used Neenah Solar white 110 lbs Cardstock  and blended Distress ink in Cracked Pistachio. I speckled it with mixture of water and the same ink after it was dry.

 

I cut the egg shaped window out of front of card with Happy Easter Shaker die. Then I used the same die to cut 5 sets of die cuts and adhere them together using Ranger Multi Medium Matte. I cut out the “Happy Easter” phrase so the center part of the window looks bigger. I ink blended the top surface of this die cuts using Distress ink oxide in Squeezed lemonade.

 

To create the shaker window, I placed a piece of Acetate over the cut out card base, and another piece of Acetate under the die cut. I used powder tool around the inside tape of the frame to prevent sequins sticking to the side of foam tape. I added Mini Sparkling Clear Flowers Sequins and Jewels in the middle, then adhere top and bottom to create a see through window.

Now it’s decorating time. All of the cute images were colored with Copic markers and cut out with the coordinating dies. I adhered colored images to the card and randomly placed 4mm Sparkling Clear Sequins and Buttercream Jewels. For the sentiment, I was brave enough to cut the original sentiment stamp apart so I could fit into this card then stamped with Memento Ink in Rich Cocoa.

For inside this card, I watercolor smudged on Tim Holtz watercolor paper using Distress oxide in Cracked Pistachio for the background. I also added some colored flower images, sequins, the Phrase from Happy Easter Shaker Die.

For my second card I used Best of Luck stamp set and Best of Luck Coordinating dies. To begin with, I cut out the front window using PPP Storybook 5 Die. I ink blended the card front and negative cut out of the window using Distress ink in Twisted Citron. Since I am so into speckling technique, I speckled the front with mixture of the same ink and water.

This time, I made shaker window again. Yes I just cannot have it enough. I stamped the sentiment onto the negative cut out using Memento ink in Rich Cocoa. Added acetate and foam tape to create the dimension so I could add Seed Beads in Spring Green and 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins. I arranged all colored images onto the card front. There you go. A cute and easy shaker card is made!

To start making this card, I stamped all images with Memento ink in Rich Coco and colored with Copic markers.I used Uni-ball Signo White gel pen to add interest on bunnies. I ink blended the background by using Tim Holtz distress ink in Squeezed Lemonade, Tattered Rose and Tumbled glass. I sprayed background with clear water then quickly dry the surface with a piece of paper towel.

 

I cut the background using Pretty Pink Posh Story Book 6 Die to create windows. I attached a piece of acetate and two layers of foam tape behind the windows to create dimensions.

In the end, I arranged all colored images onto top of card using Multi Medium Matte and added a few Pretty Pink Posh Easter Sequins Mix . A cute card is made! I hope you like my card with these super duper cute images!
