WT241 Christmas Stockings

Happy Saturday! I just want to share with you the card that I made for Ways to Use It Challenge #241 over SCS. The theme is "patchwork" and I must say now that the dp that I used (by DCWV) already came as patches so I guessed I cheated a bit. lol! But hey, I did a lot of faux stitching here. :) I actually wanted to do the faux stitching horizontally as well but my fingers just grew tired with piercing. :)

This DCWV dp is from their Christmas Stack which I bought 2yrs ago. I actually got 2 pads of them and you can't really resist the colours and beauty of its designs. The stockings were made using Spellbinders Wreath and Stocking (Shapeabilities) which, if Im not mistaken, has been with me for more than year and it's only now that I used it. I used chipboard to make the stockings and then cut again using the same background dp. I used some glue and sprinkled my MS Crystal Fine glitter to add bling to the stockings. Sentiment is from Darkroom Door Christmas Reindeer set which I bought at my LSS at 40% off! Gotta love discounts! :)

Another card added to my Christmas stash! Thanks for looking and happy stamping!

3 Christmas Cards

Happy Friday everyone! Wow! Time really flies so fast, it seems to me that we've just started with Monday and now we're onto the weekend already! I hope you're all doing very well upon reading my post for today.

I was able to finish 3 cards yesterday! YAY! And these are also part of my Christmas orders and thank God I'm slowly getting to finishing them all before November hits. I hope I can somehow do another 2 today. :)

Card #1

This is the first time I inked up this Tilda. This is one of the stamps I got from the Summer Collection kit. And yes! I enjoyed using my Spellbinders Create a Flake 1! Hubby bought this to me along with some stuffs when we visited a scrapbook shop the other day. I was actually into an MS Snowflake punch for so long now but it's so hard to find them here in Australia. So when I stumbled upon a card using this Create a Flake die, I thought, hey why not this one instead of the punch? And it's so beautiful IRL especially when you add glitters or stickles or any other medium to make them sparkle! So Christmasy! :) I bet my sentiment is so fitting for the sparkles in my snowflakes.

Card #2

The greens here were a pack of A5 cards (with 3 more other colours) which I also purchased from the scrapbook shop we visited. I used it here as they carry the colours of the dp which is from Basic Grey Figgy Pudding. The panel with the dp was made by cutting 2 long rectangles Nesties then joined them together with the grosgrain and organdy ribbon to make them look like 1 big square. Sentiment is from Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps Christmas Scripture set. I stamped it with Versafine Crimson red then heat embossed with clear ep. I sponged around it after I cut it with Spellbinders Labels 4 and then embossed it with Cuttlebug Holly embossing folder. Final step was done by spritzing a bit of Glimmer Mist pearl and added pearls on each side of the main panel.

Card #3
Can you see the gorgeous dp?! It's from Graphic 45 Christmas Past collection. My first and only Graphic 45 dp! (atm) I bought this for a particular card which was requested to me - a gold themed Christmas card. I stamped the Bible verse from Sweet 'N Sassy stamps Christmas Scripture set with Versamark then heat-embossed with Gold ep. I'm already getting the hang of using my Bow Easy so this one needs to have a bow. LOL!

Okay this is all for now. Gotta do some laundry before I can sit and stamp again. :) Thanks so much for the visit and have a blessed day!

Christmas Card with Bow Easy!!

Hello fellow bloggers and stampers! Happy Thursday to all of you! I know I still have a lot of photographed cards to post but they kept on piling up as I make new ones. LOL! So,I decided tonight to post the latest card that I finished --- just an hour ago. ;)

This card took 2-3 days to finish! Whew! Well, I don't know but I bet you also have those days when it seems that your Mojo is on a holiday? That's exactly what happened to me these past few days. I knew what stamp to use, I already have one colour which is Going Gray but I got stucked somewhere! Until I saw stampersandee's O Hear the Angel Voices Card over SCS. I was inspired by the grayish sky and the masked moon so I somehow CASE'd her colouring a bit.

This is also the first time I used my Bow Easy on a card! Yay! Thanks to Sharon Johnson for the wonderful email she sent me on how to do the bow the way she does it....beautifully!! Especially with her Autumn Blessings card -- so fab!! I PM'ed her and left a message on her blog but I never knew she would reply to my inquiry straight away. Thanks Sharon - I really appreciate it!

Here's my card:

The colours are not your usual Christmas card colours but I'm starting to like the non-traditional ones. Sometimes we have to go out of our comfort zone and try new things! :)

Thanks so much for looking and please leave a comment when you get the chance so I'll know that you stopped by.

God bless everyone! Hugs to all.

Back on Track!

Happy Monday everyone! It's been awhile since I last uploaded a card here and now it's time for me to share those with you. But before I do so, let me just share with you what happened yesterday in our church. We had our Pastor Appreciation celebration and it's the first time that we did this in our church. I initiated this one upon researching that October is Ministry Appreciation Month. I actually learned about this last year but was a bit late to celebrate it so we did it this year. I was sooo happy because it's a success as we were able to surprise our Pastor. Everyone shared and thanked him for all he's done in the church and all eyes were full of tears! It was so touching and so memorable. I was asked to make a card for him and have all the members sign up but I forgot to take a photo of the card before I gave it to our Pastor. Argh!! I just used a full A4 Night of Navy card and folded it into half and printed the 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13 verse which says: "And now, friends, we ask you to honor those leaders who work so hard for you, who have been given the responsibility of urging and guiding you along in your obedience. Overwhelm them with appreciation and love" (The Message).

On with my cards, here are a couple of what I've done lately:

This is for my friend who requested a Tilda card with a blue theme.

This one's requested to me by a friend to a friend. And she wanted the colours orange and blue.

Below are some Christmas cards that were ordered to me by friends. I still have heaps to make!

This is all for now. I know I mentioned about a 'candy" on my previous post but I'm afraid it will be a bit late. Sorry! Just have to gather all the supplies first before formally posting it to you. But I will definitely have one..soon!

Thanks for the visit and have a blessed day!
