20150108-TCC-01Whenever I see the beautiful flowers, I can’t resist using watercolour mediums lol!

My card today, I used Hero Arts Watercolor Wheel, Distress inks as my watercolour mediums. I positioned all I want to use stamps from Wplus9 Coming Up Roses Stamps on the watercolour paper first. I then stamped using water based distress inks and coloured them using watercolour brush. For sentiment, I stamped ‘HAPPY BIRTHDAY’ among Altenew Label Love Stamps using VersaFine Pigment ink Onyx Black and then heat embossed it in clear. White threads under the sentiment banner to finish the card.

Sparkle and Shine

Hello folks, just want to share my cards I made using Wplus9 ‘Sparkle & Shine’ stamp set. Wow!! hand-written sentiments inside the set is beautiful and gem images are really gorgeous. I am so in love with this set and can’t wait to play with it!

Here is my first card:
20141219-01I stamped the sentiment on the middle of the white paper panel in VersaFine ink Onyx Black and heat embossed it in clear. I then heat embossed the largest gem images in white around the sentiment area. Lastly I sponged onto the panel in Distress ink Picked Raspberry using mini blending tool and spritzed water here and there. Some sequins were the finishing touches.

My second card is necklace card?!:
20141219-03Wearing a large diamond necklace is the envy of all women lol! I love black and yellow colour combo and of course, gold glitter as well!

CASE Study 4th Anniversary Week 4

Hello folks!
My card today has been inspired by Jill Foster’s awesome card!

Here is her card:
CASE205-01Absolutely amazing!!!

And… here is my take on it:
20140902-01To create this card, I chose the largest flower stamp from Penny Black Floral Applique Stamp Set as a focal point and Stampington & Company Come Hither Stamp as well at first. I then stamped outline flower in Onyx Black pigment ink and the letters in Vintage Sepia pigment ink. Once dry, I painted whole panel include flower using several distress inks and then inked the edges with Vintage Photo & Black Soot Distress ink on an Ink Blending tool. Besides it, I applied white acrylic paint to the sides of red pattern paper panel till I had the look I wanted and also inked the edges with Black Soot Distress ink. Lastly, I added ink splatters for finishing touch.

20140902-02For sentiment, I used Wplus9 Hand Lettered Hello Die.

20140902-03Woo-hoo!! I really love this vintage look lol!

Big! Big congrats on the 4th Anniversary!!!

ric#66 – Sportmax

Hello folks,
My card today is for a new Runway Inspired Challenge #66 (I love Runway!)
ric badgeric66-Sportmaxric#66 – Sportmax
Wow… red, pink, violet on deep blue… really amazing colour combo!!! I love, love, love it.

Here is what I came up with:

For this card, I made deep blue paper panel using Studio Calico Color Theory Ink Deja Blue at first. I then affixed diagonally red, violet, and pink glitter striped along deep blue panel onto the white cardstock.

I chose a large rose stamp from Clearly Besotted Blooming Stamp Set and stamped on the separate white cardstock using Simon Says Stamps dye inks and then cut and layered them to form a cluster. In the centre of the flower cluster, I stamped sentiment in black pigment ink and then heat embossed it in clear – It is more shiny than just stamped sentiment – I affixed Studio Calico wood sequins for finishing touch.

20140826-02Oh! I didn’t forget to coat the roses using glossy accent :D

And… one more card here:
20140826-03YAY!! Watercolour card here! I am seriously Water-Colour-Lover :D Basically, I stamped on the watercolour paper using Wplus9 Stamps Coming Up Roses Stamp Set and then painted it using several distress inks.

Hello folks,
I’m so glad that I participated in Stretch Your Stamps 2 at Online Card Classes. There are full of inspirations!! I strongly recommend it.

Especially I was in awe of Shari Caroll’s hello card. It was so amazing and I was inspired by her.

Here is what I came up with:
20140807-01Unfortunately I didn’t have the featured background stamps but it was totally OK! I used beautiful Hero Arts Everything Flowers Stamp instead of them :D

I applied on the background stamp using Evergreen Bough, Rusty Hinge, Bundled Sage, and Victorian Velvet Distress inks and then spritzed the inked stamp with water using a mini mister. I then stamped the background image on a watercolour paper panel (smooth side). After the stamped panel was completely dried, I spritzed Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz Sparkle a little bit and cut the stamped panel and applied Rusty Hinge ink around the edges of each stamped square. I affixed the squares to a white cardstock panel using foam dots for dimension. I die cutted two “hello” pieces with black paper and adhered the pieces together using a glue pen. Lastly I decorated the vellum die cut butterflies for finishing touch!

20140807-02Phew~~ I finished one of my homework of Day 1. By the way, I love Wplus9 Hand Lettered Hello Die!!
