Happy Tuesday!

Times passes by so fast, can’t believe it’s already the last week in February and it is another new challenge at Cas Colours and Sketches today.  This week’s challenge #310 is a sketch challenge. I hope you will come and play along with us.


I used Simon Says Stamp‘s Beautiful Flowers Stamp Set for this card. This is one of my favorite stamp set. I reached to it all the time.

I first stamped the flowers with a Copic Markers friendly ink, Hero Arts’ Intense Black Ink onto a piece of 4.25″ by 5..5″ of one hundred pounds Neenah White card stock. I colored the flowers with Copic Markers (Y02, Y06, Y17, Y18, YR04, YR15, YG11, YG13, YG21, YG23 and C00). I stamped the sentiment with Versa Fine Onyx Black Ink onto my card panel. To finish the card, I glued the card panel onto my A2 Neenah White card base.

You’re Strong

Hello all and Happy Friday!

“You’re Strong”, a card that I created for this week’s CAS Colours and Sketches, color challenge #294 and also for my entry for their DT call. This week’s color challenge is Blushing Bride, Soft Suede, and Berry Burst. Those are the perfect colors for October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month.


First, I started to mask off a square with masking tape onto a piece of Neenah Solar White Card stock (110 lbs). Next, I stamped the flower from Simon Says Stamp’s Beautiful Flowers 2 with VersaMark Ink onto the middle of the masked square and heat-embossed it with Hero Arts’ White Embossing Powder.  Then, I used the ink blending tools to blend the colors, Picked Raspberry, Spur Sugar and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Inks, onto the square. I wiped away the excess ink and the white embossing flower appeared bright white with the embossed resist technique. After I peeled off the masking tape, I used the coloring pencils to color the flower to darken it. Continue reading “You’re Strong”

Hello Friend

Hello friends and happy Thursday! One more day to go until the weekend is here. I can’t stop playing this Plank Background Stamp Set from Simon Says Stamp. I am so in love with it.


First, I stamped the Plank Background with VersaMark Ink onto a Bristol Smooth card stock panel and heat-embossed it with Ranger Ink’s Princess Gold embossing powder. I colored the background with Zig’s Clean Color Real Brush (Cobalt Blue, Yellow, Fresh Color and Light Green). I let it sit and air-dry for half an hour. After it completely dried, I trimmed down the background to 4.25″ by 5.5″. Continue reading “Hello Friend”
