Handmade From the Heart

Hello there! I hope you are not getting sick of my cards yet. I have another card to show you. I know it's two post in a day...I promise this will be the last for today :)

For the butterflies, I used the Spellbinder die (belongs to Sheila) as mask and filled the color with Tsukineko ink. Who says ink are only for stamping. It can be used for coloring too! How cool! For the background, I used the script texture embossing folder by Cuttlebug (belongs to Sheila too). I lurrrve this embossing folder.....it make the background pop.

Have a great day! See ya!

Embellish the Cure Color Challenge with Bling

Happy Wednesday ladies!!

Today's card is made for Embellish the Cure Color Challenge with Bling hosted by the talented Ashley at Embellish Magazine. The challenge was to use colors like fuschia, light pink, grey and bling. How could I resist this challenge when pink and bling is involved...lol :)

I was looking at my Unity Stamp and thought the coffee cup stamp is perfect for this card because I wanted to give this to my bestie who loves coffee too. I did not color the coffee cup as I have to stick to the color combination. So what I did was I fill the empty space with glossy accents. I can't seem to leave stamped image without coloring...I just can't stand the emptiness. So when I can't color, I use glossy accents :)

Happy crafting!

Thinking of You

Hey there!

I finally got my September kit by Unity Stamp yesterday! Gosh...it took me more than a month to get them. I planned to subscribe to their monthly kit but due to the long shipping, I changed my mind. But I have to say that their stamps are so cute! No regret buying them though the long wait.

This is a card I made yesterday using the embossing folder by Cuttlebug. They are not mine though. Sheila lend me a few of her Cuttlebug embossing folders as well as Spellbinders die. I'm having tons of fun using them on my cards :)

Have a great day!

Woot! Woot!

Good Morning ladies!

What could be better than to woke up on a Sat morning and saw that your card being featured at CARDS blog! Woohoo! My 'Sweet Baby' card was picked by Paige and I feel so honored! Can you tell I'm grinning from ear to ear?? :)))

A gift set for a special person

Happy Friday Ladies!! As promised, here's the project that I've been wanting to share with you. It's a gift set that I made for a special person.......my SIL!

The gift set contents include a minibook, a matching card and a compact blusher by Clinique. Have you try this blusher? You should because it gives you a natural rosy cheek. I love this!

Here's a closeup of the gift bag. Originally it's a rectangular box that I had keep for the longest time and decided to turned it into a gift bag......now that's recycling :) I cut the top flaps to create an opening and wrap it with the new embossed cardstock by Bazzill Basic. Then I punched a strip of white cardstock and adhered to the top edges. I punched four holes (two each; front and back) and added eyelets using my newly bought crop-a-dile. I used some polka dots ribbon to create the handles and finished it off with buttons (a girl like me can't seem get away with buttons, huh).

The card....using October Afternoon paper and die-cuts. The 'birthday' was my handwriting. Yes, you read it right....my handwriting. Big deal! At first I was intimidated to write but a after a few moments of contemplation, I finally give it a try (but you can still see the imperfectness).

The mini book......using paper from Cosmo Cricket, October Afternoon and Making Memories.

The inside of the mini  book.....

Buh-bye! Have a great weekend!

Sweet Baby

Hello Ladies! Happy Thursday to y'all!

Seems like I haven't been posting in a long time....even though it's only been a few days. I've been really busy working on a project that took me a week to complete. But I can only show them to you tomorrow. So please come back again :)

Before I go on, I have two happy news to share. First, I won myself a blog candy hosted by Susan over at Imagine.Create.Express. Oh my....I was just too surprised for words! Thanks Susan!!

Second, remember the first sketch challenge hosted by Savitri and her adorable daugther M? GUESS WHAT?? I won the challenge because M picked my toaster and bread card! Yeay! I won a gift card for Julie Billingsley’s store at Sweet Shoppe Designs. Thanks for your pick, M!

Here's the card I made for the CARDS blog challenge. This time Paige challenged us to create simple, colorful, collage-y cards. My card was totally inspired by Kim Hughes card featured in the Nov 2009 issue of Cards as well as on their blog. You may check it out here.

Have you seen the latest collection of stamp by Crate Paper? You must if you haven't because they are just so cute and so fun! I used the Little Sprout collection on this card (if I remembered correctly)
I'm putting all my favourite things on this card....owl, tree, polka dots in pink, October Afternoon paper, tear edges, Fiskars border punch, MM letter stickers and a flower button! Ohh...I just love it!
