Paper Smooches SPARKS Anything Goes Challenge

Happy Sunday, all! =) There is a new challenge up over at Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenges Blog!


It's another "Anything Goes" challenge this week, so let your creative juice run wild and create a card/project for a chance to win! Here is my card for the challenge.


It's a very simple card, but with some fun textures. =)


I once again inked up the cute rocking horse from Knick Knacks set, colored it with Copic markers then hand cut him out.


To create the textured background, I die cut Retro Arrow from cardstock and used the cutout as my stencil with light modeling paste on the card front. The sentiment is included in the Knick Knacks set.

    Mary & Snowy

    Happy Friday, my friends! =) Here is a card showcasing some of the new stamps from the A Charming Winter collection released by Purple Onion Designs.


    Umm... I only realized that the trees shouldn't be so green if there is snow on the ground after this card was made. Please imagine a parallel universe where this does happen. =)


    Once again, some masking was done to make this scene happen (not just parallel universe). Mary and Snowy are stamped first. After masking them, I stamped Lighted Trees over to create the scene. The images are then partial hand cut to fit in the Polaroid die cut frame.


    I stamped the versatile Dusting of Snow with Hero Arts Unicorn white pigment ink on the card base to add to the wintery look. The patterned paper is from Lawn Fawn's Snow Day collection. The merry die is from Papertrey Ink and it's coated with Rock Candy Distress Stickles. I also added Glossy Accents to the lights for a little texture.

    That's all for now. For more inspirations using stamps from Purple Onion Designs, please visit Purple Onion Designs Blog! =)

    CAS(E) This Sketch #99

    Hello, my friends! =) It's time for a new challenge over at CAS(E) This Sketch! First is the sketch.


    Here is my take on it.


    This is another fun sketch to play with! =)


    I stamped the beautiful flower cluster from Paper Smooches' Blossoming Buds set with Antique Linen Distress Ink on watercolor paper. The image is then colored with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor.


    The sentiment comes with the Blossoming Buds set and for once, there is no embellishment! That honestly doesn't happen a lot. =)

    Happy Halloween!

    Happy Halloween, my friends! I have a Halloween card for you! =)


    Even though we don't really celebrate Halloween, but we do get a big bag of treats and put it at the door for the kids that go around trick or treating in our condo building. And I just couldn't resist this super cute witch illustrated by the uber talented Torico. =)


    All the images are from My Favorite Things' Witch Way Candy? set and a little masking has been done to create the scene. They are colored with Copic markers then die cut and trimmed to size.


    The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Happy Spooky Halloween set and is white embossed on the card base.. The border is cut using a die from Mama Elephant's Landscape Trio die set. I am also linking this to the Anything Goes challenge over at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Blog.

    That's all for now. Hope you have a fun and safe Halloween! =)

    CAS(E) This Sketch #98

    Happy Halloween Eve! =) It's also a Thursday and that means there is a new sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch! First is the sketch.


    And here is my interpretation.


    Yes, you know I had to alter it a bit! =)


    The trees and fox are from Lawn Fawn's Joy to the Woods set. They are colored with Copic markers on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock then fussy cut out. There is a coordinate die set that goes with this stamp set if you are not big in fussy cutting. =)


    The sentiment and ornaments are from the same stamp set as well. After "hanging" the ornaments under the sentiment, I covered them with a thick layer of Glossy Accents for a little texture. The snowy ground is covered with a thin layer of Star Dust Stickles for fabulousness. =)

    That's all I have. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members created for this sketch and all the challenge details over at CAS(E) This Sketch! I am looking forward to seeing what you make! =)
