14:00 0 Comments

Hello! It is nice to have you here again :)

Today i am sharing another shaped card and i use this cute girl from Tiddly inks called Wryn Have a heart for Tiddly ink fab friday.
She is so easy to colour and if you are expert in coloring, i am really sure you can have fun colouring her hair and her dress.

As always, i love to do alot of layering for my cards and this time is just so extreme ^_^ but i am so happy it did not look messy, at least for my eyes :P.
I coloured wryn used copic markers, pretty simple and straight forward colouring because i can't stand the alcohol smell from copics :P. 

And here is the close up. i added glossy accent on the heart to create a fun pop up feeling when i touch it :).

and here is the inside card. :)

Hope you like what i shared today.

Hello everyone :)

I hope you like all my cards which i made use MFT stamps few days back. ^_^

I have whole piles of paper pads as old as 2008 ^_^. 

And here is the close up of this sweetie. I colored her with distress markers because it is easier to control than reinker :).  Sentiments from hero arts and stamped use versafine vintage sephia. Flowers and metal corner from wild orchird crafts and cute pink bows from dollar store (daiso) :)

MFT : Ice Cream "Happy Birthday"

12:05 2 Comments
Good Afternoon!
I have decided to sit down and write a short blog post where i am supposedly sleeping right now. 
The medicine cause me drowsy but i could not sleep due to noisy environment around my house. There is road construction going on till early next month :(.

So might as well i do upload my latest card with my new stamps penguin from MFT. 
Nowadays, i love penguins more than owl :). 

Since Singapore weather is really really hot lately, what i can think of from this theme is summer and ice cream! So i colored the penguin with summer vibrant colour to match the pattern paper from doodlebugs. I am finally dare myself to use my very precious doodlebug pattern papers. 
I also added some accessories stamps from lawn fawn (crab,mini coconut trees and coconuts fruits).

I colored the whole images with distress markers and hand fussy cut it because i don't have the coordinating dies.  

And here is the inside card. What a cute penguin on summer suit :P.

MFT : Happy Birthday

08:00 2 Comments

Good Morning!
Back with another cutie image which i know it will draw lots ooh ahhh from many crafters.
This cute stamp is not new to many stamper but yes it is new to me.
For this time round i had to make a card with lots of cute meow meow because my customer's friend love cats so much. I guess we can probably call her cat lady :)

And here is the card.
I am using a pretty old pattern papers from my minds eyes and coloured the cat images from MFT coordinate with the pattern papers. I colored the images with distress markers because that is the easiest way since i still have to manually fussy cut the images :). 
So which one is the cutest cat among the 5 cats? to me i love bottom left.

And because of that, i decided to color and cut one more to decorate the inside card. 

I hope you like this simple but fun card :).

See you tomorrow. Tomorrow i will be sharing a card with bear image again, i made one know that bear from MFT is just too cute and i could not resist!

MFT : Happy Birthday Bear

16:39 5 Comments
As promised, i am bringing another card with bear image on it. I must have missed out alot when i purchased this cute stamp from MFT a couple months ago and left it untouched, because now i know this stamp image is so much fun to play with! i never want to stop playing with it. Even the details such as presents, balloons, cake, hats also perfect for other stamps ^_^. you will see it tomorrow :)

So here is my other card. Please don't focus on the wrong thing which is my nail polish :P.
Many of my friends look at my nail polish than my card ^_^.

I am still using the same pattern paper from doodlebug and colored the images according to the pattern papers. Nowadays i am pretty into this kind of style card making, but i will balance it up with the more decorated card because i have different type customers in my carousell shops ^_^

And here is the inside card. Absolutely adorable bear with a bow tie which i picked up from MFT somebunny stamp set.

MFT : Birthday Bear Hugs

08:00 5 Comments
Morning everyone!!
Today card will sure make you happy! It is bright and cute card because i use so many adorable bear images on it.

I am so happy that i finally able to play with MFT stamp birthday bear after keeping it more than half a year.

So here is the card...tadaaaa....

Since this is a happy occasion card, i picked up a product which always produce the cutest paper pads, who else than doodlebugs. 
Some of my friends asked me few times, do you pick a paper to use then colour or colour then pick the paper ? Ok , i admit the efficient and the correct way is always select the paper to use first then do colouring of images so that it coordinates. But most of the time i did not do that, i did the other way.

But for this year, i will do the right way, select the paper and do some colouring :). It is really effective, i can create cards slightly faster than usual. It may also support by the images that does not require alot of colouring. But i still need to do fussy cut it :P.  
I coloured the bear with inktense pencils, and for the decorations i coloured with distress markers and zig markers. The dies i used in here from papertrey ink (birthday) and la la land (fence and the lace border). 

And of cards always come decorate the inside. 

I hope you like it!!!

CC Design : Happy Birthday

11:05 0 Comments
Morning!!! Happy New year!

Have you created a list of resolutions this year ?
I have made few craft resolutions and i have a monthly target to help with my final goals.

So here is the thing goes. One of my craft resolutions this year is make at least 50 cards and use old stamps.
To achieve this i created a monthly target and here is my target for this month :

To make cards with Whismy stamps and My Favourite Things stamps.
And here are the cards i have to make with both brands
2 anniversary cards
2 wedding cards
5 Birthday cards
1 Baby cards
2 Friendship cards
2 Thank You cards
3 Valentine cards
3 no sentiments cards.

By this far i have made 4 birthday cards and will be sharing with you for the next few days.
But for today card rather special because my friend was asking me to create a boy birthday card with basketball theme. 

So here i created a basketball pattern used cuttlebug embossing folder. I got this idea from Pinterest. Printed few items related to the basketball for the additional decoration. Since i don't have images which suitable to theme from whimsy and mft so i decided to coloured an image from CC design roberto rascal.

I hope you like my very first card of the year ^_^

See you again tomorrow, you will sure like my tomorrow card ^_^
