Flora & Fauna: Arctic Starry Night

Hello crafty friends! I want to share with you my Christmas cards today with so adorable Flora & Fauna Arctic Starry Night stamp set – it really caught my eye!

Here is what I came up with:
For my first card, I created a snowy night background with the Arctic Starry Night set. It is so lovely set!! I heat embossed (a kind of) constellations and trees onto watercolour paper panel in white first, and then coloured the background with Peerless watercolors. I added white ink splatters on it. Makes it look like snow or stars in the night sky.
I stamped & lightly watercoloured three polar bears, then fussy cut them. Once the background panel was completely dry, I mounted it on white card base using double sided tape first, and then added polar bears on it using foam tape.

For my second card, I made a simply watercolour card. I just repeatedly stamped trees on watercolour panel in black, and then roughly watercoloured each tree using Peerless watercolors.
Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Neat and Tangled: Merry & Bright

Hello crafty friends, TGIF!
I am guest designing with Neat and Tangled this month. I am so happy to be a part of this amazing company once again!!

Today I want to share with you my fun Christmas card with so adorable Beary Merry Stamp Set and the Merry and Bright Nice and Neat Die.

Here is what I came up with:
I started by stamping cute polar bear and candy cane from the Beary Merry set on watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink. I then watercoloured and fussy cut them. You can use the matching dies to cut stamped images. It is so much easier than use scissors. ;)
For the snowy night background, I ink blended on watercolour paper panel with Mermaid Lagoon, Faded Jean, Seedless Preserves, Black Soot Distress inks and mini blending tool, and then added white ink splatters all around the panel. For the sentiment, I die cut the word “Merry & Bright” from white card stock fine times, and then stacked them up using glue pen.
Once the panel was completely dry, I mounted it on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the sentiment die cut and the polar bear holding a candy cane on the card front using foam tape.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend!!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Altenew Stamp Focus: Just Because

Happy Monday crafty friends! I hope you had a wonderful World Card Making Day last weekend. I’m up on the Altenew blog with my three floral cards using the newly released (and so gorgeous) Altenew Just Because stamp set. I love this set so much!!

For my first card, I made a watercolour card using watercolour pencils and water brush. I stamped larger arch-shaped flower bouquet image from the Altenew Just Because set on watercolor paper panel using VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink, coloured them with watercolour pencils, and then brushed them with water brush. For the sentiment, I used the word “hugs” in the Altenew Script Words die set.

For my second card, I created a watercolour smoosh background – This is a very pretty and unpredictable watercolour background technique!! I stamped a flower bouquet and sentiment from the Just Because set on the centre of an A2 sized watercolour paper panel in VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink. Once the inked panel was dry, I applied a watercolour wash on the panel using some Distress inks and a water brush.
Once the watercoloured panel was completely dry, I die cut the word “XO” from the panel using the Altenew Bold Alphabet die set. I mounted the panel on white card base using glue tape first, and then added the word dies using foam tape.

For my last card, I coloured the flowers with the Artist markers along with some Copic markers. I stamped and coloured a flower bouquet, cut a top part of the panel, and then mounted it on top-folded Lagoon card base using foam tape.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Winnie & Walter World Cardmaking Day 2017 Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends, happy World Cardmaking Day!
I’m so thrilled (and honoured) to be a part of the Winnie and Walter World Cardmaking Day 2017 Blog Hop!!

Today I want to share with you my Christmas card with some Winnie and Walter Christmas themed stamp sets!
I started by stamping poinsettias (from the In Bloom Elsas Flora set), berries (from the Winter Woodland set), sentiment (from the Merry and Bright set), santa hat (from the Season’s Tweetings set) on an A2 sized watercolour paper panel in VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink. I then watercoloured the stamped images with Distress inks and water brush.
Before mounting it on red card base, I tore the top part of the panel – Tearing it off at the top is something I rarely do, but works well on this card!!

GIVEAWAY!!
5 random winners in total will be drawn from all the comments left on the different stops along the hop. Each winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to the Winnie & Walter shop.

Altenew September 2017 Release Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy Thursday!
Welcome to the second day of the Altenew September 2017 Release Blog Hop!! We have 14 brand new stamp sets, 15 new die sets, and re-inkers in September! If you arrived here from Keeway Tsao’s blog you are on the right track!

For my first two cards, I used the Cotton Comfort stamp set along with the Holiday Wishes stamp set.
I love white on kraft! This is one of my favourite colour combinations for Christmas cards. I stamped the large cotton flower from the Cotton Comfort set on kraft card stock in brown pigment ink, coloured it with white polychromos pencil, and then die cut it with the matching die. For the sentiment panel, I heat embossed the sentiment from the Holiday Wishes set in white, stamped cotton flowers randomly using Tea Dye Distress ink, added white ink splatters, ink blended all edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink.
I tied the jingle bells on the cotton flower because it’s a Christmas card! :D
I randomly stamped cotton flowers from the Cotton Comfort set on watercolour paper panel in brown pigment ink, and then watercoloured the panel using Distress inks and a wet paint brush. I added white ink splatters. For the sentiment, I used the Holiday Wishes stamp set.

For my third card, I made a shaker Christmas card using the Night Before Christmas stamp & die set. I stamped cotton flowers from the Cotton Comfort set randomly onto white paper panel using Silver Stone dye ink, then cut a Christmas tree window on the centre of the stamped panel using the Night Before Christmas die. For the ombré stamped tree, I used the Bamboo, Forest Glades, and Evergreen dye inks.

For my last card, I made a watercoloured flower card using brand new Just Because stamp set. It looks gorgeous in my eyes, haha!! I stamped the flower cluster on watercolour paper in black pigment ink, lightly watercoloured the stamped image using watercolour pencils and water brush, and then fussy cut it. I mounted it on the left side of kraft card using foam tape, and then added white ink splatters.
