Bright Bean

Hello, my friends! =) Here is a card that I made for Inspiration Journal's July Monthly Challenge - Happy Birthday America & Other Birthday Celebrating!


I went for Other Birthday Celebrating this time. =)


I used the sweet Bright Bean from The Greeting Farm for my card. She is stamped on Papertrey Ink's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then fuzzy cut out.


I used some Japanese washi tape to create the patterned on the bottom of the card and die cut the word "birthday" using patterned paper from Echo Park's Sweet Girl 6x6 Paper Pad. The word "happy" is from Papertrey Ink.

That's all I have. There is still time to link up your birthday projects for a chance to win 50 Emporium Dollars to use in the Inspiration Emporium Store! See all the details here! You can also use discount code wonderland at check out to receive 10% off your entire order when you shop at Inspiration Emporium! =)

This is the first card that I made in a month, so please forgive me if I am rusty. =) My family was visiting from Taiwan for the past month and we where on the road a lot. They left this past weekend and have arrived Taiwan safely. I am not going to lie, I miss them a lot! =)

I also wasn't able to visit blogs and/or hang out on Facebook as much as I used to, so I really wanted to thank all that have visited me tirelessly even though I wasn't able to visit you. Your sweet and kind comments always make me smile. Thank you, thank you, thank you, my friends! =)

Have a happy day and thanks for stopping by!

Paper Smooches SPARKS Picture Perfect Challenge


Happy Monday, my friends! =) It's time for a new Picture Perfect challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge Blog. Here is this week's inspiration photo.


Here is my interpretation.


I love the beautiful setting sun and the color contrast in the photo and used them as my inspiration. I did tone one tone stamping on the card base using images from Reflections set.


For the "sun" part, I die cut a piece of watercolor paper using a Hexalongs die, scribbled a couple of colors from Inktense Blocks then added water with a aqua brush. The sentiment is from Sentiment Sampler set.

That's all from me. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members came up with for this challenge. Here are the links:
