Embellish Color Challenge with Stitching

Note: Please scroll down for my blog candy post if you are interested.

Hey there! How's your day? Mine was good....had poached egg and toast for breakfast and coffee too. Yummy :) I made a card for the Embellish Color Challenge and broke out some of my newly bought stuff....Prima blings and Dear Lizzy fabric. I heart these products! I saw lots of fabric flowers on the blog land and decided to make one myself. Well, it won't be a success had I not learn it from my friend, Courtney. You may watch her video tutorial here. It took her less than 10mins to make one and it took me almost half an hour to make mine :)

Have a nice day!

Latte Anyone?

Happy Tuesday! Today, I'm going to share with you my first project as the DT for 'The Cutting Cafe'. This is also my first time using digi stamps and it was fun! You should really check out the store because it offers a huge variety of digi stamps and templates that suit everyone's needs.

I'm a coffee lover so it's no surprise that I choose to use the 'Got Coffee' set for my first project. There are so many cute images and sentiments in this set this is just one of the card I created from the set. Initially, this card was created for the Embellish color challenge but I used the wrong blue that doesn't fit the challenge at all. So, I decided to drop it and just share with you all. Don't you love the coffee mug image?? I just love it! I printed the image on pink cardstock, fussy cut and stamp it with polka dots by Papertrey Ink. For added interest, I added glossy accent to the heart and the coffee. The sentiment is by Hero Arts. I love how the digi stamps work perfectly well with other clear stamps.

If you are interested in any of these stamps, be sure to check out the store. Regina (the owner) is one of the most accommodating lady I've ever met!

Simple and Fun!

Happy Friday y'all! Today, I have not only one but two cards to share with you. I made them last night while watching TV in the living room. I stayed up till midnight and right now I can't even open my eyes. Too sleepy!

I'm back with my simple and fun style....my comfort zone :) This card below uses paper and journaling tag by October Afternoon. Then I distressed the edge using white paint by Making Memories....I heart this product. You are going to see me using it frequently. Oh btw, I need your help. Can someone help me identify this ribbon because I bought it in yards and forget which manufacturer it's from. Please please........

Next up is a clean and simple card featuring stamps by Crate Paper. The green dash line is a rub-on by October Afternoon. I think I made this card under 10mins except for the ribbon coz it took at least 15mins to get it right.

Thanks for your visit!

Hello + Blog Candy!

Hello there! Wow...first of all, thanks so much for all the lovely comments you left on my DT post!! You ladies just know how to brighten my day! Secondly, I'm sorry if I have not leave any comment on your blog lately but trust me, I do visit your blog everyday :) I will back to commenting when things are not so crazy here. A very quick post to show you the card I made yesterday.

After all the shabby chic cards that I created, I decided that this time I would go for a clean and simple style instead. Can any of you recognized which stamp I'm using for the flower?? If you said 'Look Up' by Practicing Creativity Designs then you are absolutely right! I stamped the small polka dots hot air balloon on kraft cardstock to create a flower. For the center, I add some Papertrey Ink buttons. The stitched stem is a rub-on by Cherry Arte. I seriously love the rub-on...it definitely make my life much more easier especially when I don't have a sewing machine :)) The stapled ribbon is an idea I get from Clouds in the CARDS March issue. This girl seriously rock!

(This card is part of the blog candy)

Embellish Fabric Color Challenge

Happy Friday ladies!

I made a card yesterday for the Embellish Fabric Color Challenge. I was greatly inspired by the challenge that I decided to join in the fun. There's also another person who greatly inspired me and she's none other than the talented Sarah Martina. She created the most beautiful shabby chic card. And here's my take on the challenge.

I did a lot of stamping on this card which I rarely do. First, I stamped the background using the bitty polka dots by Papertrey Ink. Then I die cut a butterfly on a piece of muslin fabric and stamped damask pattern on it. I even get to use my long hoarded Prima flowers for the body and the beautiful jewel brad is by my uber sweet friend, Jessy :) This is my first time using fabric and I love it!

Have a fun day!
