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.

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”

Happy Monday! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. I finally got some time to craft over the weekend, and I made a card using Simon Says Stamp’s Under The Sea Animals and Pebbles Die.

First, I started making the background by using Distress Oxide Inks, I used the ink blending tools to blend the Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean onto a piece of A2 sized Neenah Solar White card stock to make the water background. I blended the Tea Dye, Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo to make the sand.   Continue reading “YOU’RE A STAR!”

Sending You All Smiles Across The Miles

Happy Friday, everyone!

Today’s cards features Wa No Iki flower stamp set. I got this stamp set from Hawaii when I went there for vacation this month.


First, I stamped the solid flower image onto the Neenah white card stock with Altenew Butter Cream and Warm Sunshine inks. Then, I stamped the outline of the flowers and colored them with Copic markers (Y11 and Y17).  I fussy cut the flowers and put them aside. I cut another piece of black card stock that is a little bigger than the card front.  Then, I glued the card front onto the black card stock and glued the outline of the flowers on. I stamped the sentiment from Pretty Pink Posh with Versa Fine black ink and heat embossed with clear Hero Arts embossing powder.
