Here it is:20140616-01I named it ‘GARDEN HEAVEN’.

The theme for round 5 is ‘ADHESIVES‘. Adhesives… adhesives… I counted double-sided bonding tape, foam adhesive, any types of glue, and glossy accents. Am I right?
(please~ these are all I have…)
20140616-02
My card looks nothing special… just made with ordinary way… but, my aim for this round was to show you a conventional card with its own unique idea. I chose several colours of ‘Martha Stewart Glitter Powder’ for the background and ‘Summer Garden stamps by Simon Says Stamp’ as embellishments. I LOVE Summer Garden stamps very much. It is so adorable! So, I was really happy that I could use these stamps for my last challenge card LOL!!

I affixed a double-sided sticky tape on the paper at first and then I die cut using MFT Die-namics Triangle Screen as a garden wall hangings.

20140616-03
I then gently rubbed on glitter powder on the sticky part of the paper. Rainbow colours were chose from Martha Glitter Powders. They are super-duper fine and I love them all.
20140616-04

My second form of adhesives – and this is my favourite types of adhesives – is Glossy Accents! I used it to make watercolour flowers more fancy.

20140616-05
Lastly, I used foam adhesive for a 3D dimension of the sentiment, tiny butterfly, flowers, and leaves. :D

Wow… with each round, the task is getting more difficult and very tricky as well. The theme for round 4 is ‘BORDER STAMPS‘ and I – honestly and seriously – just have one border stamp set. OMGoodness!!!

……It’s OK!! The one-and-only border stamp set is so beautiful and enough to make a good card (I believe…)

Here it is:
20140609-01
When you look at this card, what is the first thing that come to your mind? Passion, classy, rose, frills, and beautiful Red & Black… Let’s dance Flamenco!
I named it ‘Flamenco Fantasy‘ and You are my greatest joy!!

I wanted to express gorgeous red long dress, beautiful red rose using lace border stamps, and happy dancing moment through paper frills. It was so great moment and the greatest joy.

20140609-02I heat embossed music background stamp in clear on the black card base at first. I then blended with several reddish colours of Distress Inks on the watercolour paper. After red watercolour paper was completely dried, I carefully stamped chosen border stamps in black and added shiny effect using Clear Zig Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. For sentiment, I aligned it along with lace borders. To make it stand out, I stamped in Frost white on the black banner.

Here is a detailed view:

Gallery Idol Round 3: Sound of Music

Hello folks,
Happy Monday Again!! YAY~ I made it to the Gallery Idol Top 15. I am highly honoured and so excited.

The theme for round 3 is ‘STENCILS‘ :D

For GI round 3, I chose a gorgeous ‘PUNCTUATION Stencil’ by Simon Says Stamp and I named this card ‘Sound of Music‘.

Hmm… You might be wondering “Music? why?? where is musical notes?” Ye! You are right! It is punctuation but, not just punctuation. In my imagination, adding rainbow water drops to punctuation turns into the Sound of Music. LOL! :D

Here is a detailed view:
20140602-02
I layered a stencil over the watercolour paper and blended it with several colours of Distress Inks for making stencil patterns stand out (phew~ there are so many colours!!) and then, I added Shimmer Spritz Sparkle and touches of glossy accents to fresh water drops. The focal sentiment is embossed in Gold and it was popped up with foam dots for dimension. :D

Now, I am extremely excited to submit my second card to GI Round Two!! The theme for round two is ‘DIE-CUTTING‘ :D

Here it is:

20140526-RoundTwo01

When I first knew the theme, I thought it would be easy for me because, I have many dies. Buttttttt… It was so hard to make the right card.. I was above myself. Haha…
Honestly, I cut each one of all my dies and arranged all die cuts on the desk! Thinking… thinking… thinking… I was thinking what I was going to make over and over again.

Sigh……

Oh!! I hit on the best idea all of a sudden! ‘BRIDE OF MAY‘ LOL!!

I chose lovely Spellbinders In’spire Die-Silhouette, Clearly Besotted Fancy Feathers Die Collection, and Clearly Besotted  Love Word Die. My focal point is ‘LOVE WORD’ die cut. Normally I use stamps when I decorate a card with sentiment but, for round two, I wanted to carry out my duties faithfully.

Here is a detailed view:
