Happy Friday everyone! I've started making this card 2 days ago but then I got sidetracked with other stuffs that's why I've finished it just now. Actually, this is my "first ever" easel card! Yay for me!! It's also a first for me to use punched leaves on a card. Well, it's because I don't have any leaf punch, LOL!! But this lovely leaves were given to me by my online buddy Bec months ago. This is also my take for WT263 challenge over SCS and this one is actually a birthday card. I really left a space inside the card for the personalized message of the giver, which is ME! :)

Here's a close-up shot of the front:

I used Kaiser pearls (Blush) as stopper for my easel card. The papers were from K&Company and Kaisercraft. My Magnolia image is a RAK I received from a friend online.
So, what do you think? :)
Thanks for looking, it's already late and I need to sleep because we have a family day out tomorrow. Can't wait!!
God bless!

Magnolia Down Under Challenge #38

HELLO! It's me once again. This is my second post for today so just please scroll down to read the earlier post.

This card is for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge#38 and it's a sketch challenge for this week.

Here's my card:

Honestly, I haven't been creating cards with Tilda on it for the past few months. Which only means that I haven't been using my Copics and Prismacolour pencils for awhile now! So just imagine how hard it was for me to colour her, knowing that I wasn't sure at first if I still know how to use or hold a marker, moreso, a COPIC!!! LOL!!! My hand was trembling, actually. I felt the same feeling when I was just starting with Copics. :)

Anyway, I somehow "survived"! I just hope I was able to justify my colouring with Tilda. I coloured her mostly with Copics but with her hair, it was a combo of Copics then Prismacolor pencil (to achieve shading).

Can you please tell me from what Magnolia collection this Tilda was from? This is just actually a RAK image from an online buddy (sorry, I forgot her name! my bad!). The farm fence that Tilda is sitting on was from High Hopes which I bought from Bec some weeks ago. I did some tweaking on this fence to adjust the height. LOL! I experimented on matting the Labels One with my Scalloped Square Nesties (the largest die) and I liked how it turned out. I did some paper piercing on the sides and a faux stitching with a faux thread using a glitter gel pen. :) Flowers were made using Martha Stewart Cosmos punch and embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots to add effect and was popped-dot for dimension.Sentiment is from AmyR stamps by CC Designs and the tiny bow on top of it is a Carl punch. The lovely dps are from K&Company Charlotte pad (my favourite!). The cardstocks are from SU! Summer Sun and Coredinations cs.

A closer look at the flowers...

Thanks so much and it's time for me to hit the bed now. God bless everyone!



Clean and Simple Card

Happy Tuesday everyone! Wow! It's been almost a week since I last posted here. Hope all is well with you. Life can get so busy at times and I just had that the past few days. I've been trying to do some de-cluttering at home and it seems endless! LOL!!

Anyway, this card is for the SSCC31 challenge and that is to create a clean and simple card. The challenge is based on the Bible verse taken from Psalm 51:7-10 :
"Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. Let me hear joy and gladness, let the bones you have crushed rejoice. Hide your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquity. Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me."

I have this stamp from Stampabilities since last year but it's only now that it got inked up. I wanted a Vintage clean and simple card, hence I didn't do any colouring and I chose these browny tones. The image was stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia, cut with Labels One and so were the mats. The dp is from K&Company Charlotte pad and the brown cs was embossed using Cuttlebug Script folder. Finished it off with a lovely flower that I got from Bec months ago and a vintage-coloured button.

Thanks for looking! Have a blessed day!


ETA: My SSCC30 challenge card was one of the chosen few to receive the Shining Star Award! YAY!!!
