Birthday Treats

Happy Monday, my friends! =) I am trying out The Card Set Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.


When I was visiting my family in Taiwan this past January, I went shopping with my brother's family. My brother's oldest girl was buying birthday cards in this store in the mall and I thought "There is something wrong about this picture!" Her aunt makes cards, she should never have to buy cards! =) I wanted to make her a set of simple birthday cards ever since I came back and this challenge provides the perfect inspiration. =)


All stamps are from Papertrey Ink. The images are all colored with Copic markers. A little bit of Glossy Accents is added to each card for a little interest.


Here is a closer look of each card. This one with Mr. Monkey.


Miss Ladybug.


And Mr. Blue Bird of Happiness. =)


I used a few of the images from Tremendous Treats: Birthday set for my cards. There are six cards in this set. I separated them into two designs of three cards each with slight variations on the designs just to make it more fun for me. =)


Here is Mr. Lion.


Mr. Elephant.


And Mr. Hot Air Balloon with his cloud friends. =)


The box was originally the packaging for the stamp set. I stamped the images that I used for the cards on the cardstock strip to decorate the box. They are stamped with the card base colors that I used for their respective cards. The thin color strips are cut from the cardstock colors I used for each of the cards as well.

That's all for now. Have a happy day, my friends! =)

Thanks for stopping by!

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #102

Happy Friday, all! It's time for a new challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays Challenge! Here is this week's challenge.


To honor the Memorial Day in the US, this week's challenge features the three patriotic colors. Create a clean and simple card incorporates the colors red, white and blue for a chance to win! Here is my card for the challenge.


This was a fun card to make. After seeing my talented teammates Lorena and Jingle's cards, I can only say that great minds thinks alike! =)


I first adhered strips of Scor-Tape on the card base, peeled the backing then added neon/fluorescent glitters. For the sentiment phrase, I adhere a wider piece of double sided tape on a piece of cardstock, die cut then added the glitter. The glitter that I have for the "red" is more of a coral color, so I when over them with a Copic marker to get the color that I wanted.


This week's sponsor is Simon Says Stamp. Don't forget to find out what the other Girl Fridays came up with for this challenge and all the challenge details here. hope you can join us this week! =)

Have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by!

Love & SPARKS

Hello, all! I am very excited to joining a group of very talented ladies in the new Paper Smooches SPARKS Design Team! I am a big fan of Kim's images and I am looking forward to playing with my Paper Smooches stamps more! =)


This is the card that I sent in for the design team call. I was inspired by the photo provided for Nov. 26 - Dec. 2 Picture Prefect Challenge.


I used the negative of the die cut from Love Word die and let patterned paper from Snippets 6x6 Paper Pad by Studio Calico helped me with the rest. And yes, no stamping!! =)

My term for Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge won't start until June, but you can see this week's challenge here! =)

Hope you have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!

Filigree

Hello, my friends! =) It's the last day of Mama Elephant's May Stamp Highlight and we are focusing on the beautiful Filigree set.


I think the actual card in person looks a bit better than the photo. Please excuse my poor photographing skill.


The large doily from Filigree set is clear embossed on the back of a piece of watercolor paper. I then drew circles on the doilies using Inktense Blocks and went over them with a aqua brush to get the watercolor look. The sentiment is included in the Filigree set as well.

That's all from me. Don't forget to check out what the other design team members created using this set. Here are the links:

All the little rectangles are from Soiree set and the sentiment is from Smitten set.

That's all from me. Don't forget to check out what the other design team members created using this set. Here are the links:
