Simon Says: Food and/or Drink

Hello! I'm back today to take part in the latest Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: 

These Mama Elephant's little dogs are so cute. My son and I coloured them and I fuzzy-cut the coloured images to dance around an elegant birthday sentiment from JustRite. I heat embossed the birthday sentiment with Ranger blue glitter embossing powder and love the effect. Unfortunately, I am unable to fully capture the glitter of the sentiment in my photo. 

I decided to create my own background with a diagonal strips background stamp and Hero Arts ombre ink. This was my first successful attempt at using the Hero Arts ombre ink pad and I must thank my WRMK stamping tool! 

Lastly, I used the same ombre ink to stamp a sentiment from Penny Black inside the card and stuck another cute dog next to the sentiment. 

Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a great time!

Furry Friends

Hi! Today's blog is a birthday card that has the sentiment as the focal point. 

I stamped, coloured and fuzzy-cut these cute puppies from Mama Elephant and adhered them around the sentiment. 

I also included some buttons I had in my stash, with one of the buttons acting as a ball for the juggling puppy.

Lastly, I included a sentiment and a puppy inside the card. 

Overall, this is a cute card that I enjoyed making for the recipient. 

I'm submitting this card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Furry Friends. 

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a good day!

Hoot Hoot!


I'm back today to share a cute birthday card I made for someone who adores owls.

I created this card pretty fast as I already had the design in mind. I don't know about other crafters but I usually spend more time planning a card instead of the actual making of the card. Lol

I adhered a doily to a 6" by 6" kraft cardbase before sticking the sentiment and the owls around the sentiment. After that, I die-cut a circle on the white textured card front, covered the circle with acetate and tied some twine around the card front before using foam tape to stick it down.

I had created this card with white cardstock as I wanted the focus to be on the colourful owls, and this coincidentally fitted in with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge's theme, Snow White. Hence, I'm submitting this card for the challenge.

Have a good week ahead. It's already Wednesday!

Simon Says Stamp Wed Challenge: Anything Goes


I have made two Halloween-themed cards since Halloween is round the corner. These are birthday cards for two October babies. 

I used Mama Elephant's Grid Window die to create nine windows to place the cute ghosts and monsters from MFT's Fab-Boo-Lous stamp set. 

I colored the images using alcohol markers, selecting the Halloween colors of orange, green and purple. This color combination looks so bright and cheery. I love it!

I then added sequins to some of the windows to turn this into a shaker card. 

Shaker cards are fun to make and I'm sure I will be making more. These two cards are so cute that I was a bit reluctant to mail them out. Haha. Anyway, I can always make more. 

A good weekend to all!

Simon Says: Photo Inspiration

Hello! Today I'm sharing a card inspired by the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. This week's theme is Simon Says: Photo Inspiration.

I coloured up this cute image from Whimsy Stamps with alcohol markers, and die-cut it with a square scalloped die from Spellbinders.

I then adhered the image to a piece of glitter paper with beautiful silver dots and added some die-cut frames in hues of lilac.  I also threaded a shiny lilac ribbon through the background paper on the left.

Lastly, I adhered a sentiment "hugs", which I embossed on grey cardstock.

That's it from me for today. Happy crafting!

Simon Says: It's A Dog's Life

Hello! I'm sharing a card today to take part in Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This week's theme is "It's A Dog's Life", and I have just the card for it!

I stamped this puppy stamp from Lili of the Valley on white cardstock and die-cut it with a circle die from Whimsy Stamps. I then colored it with promarkers.

I found this matching floral paper in my stash and used it as background paper, matting it with pink and red cardstock.

I adhered the colored image on the floral paper before adding twine, sentiment and lots of rhinestone around the image.

That's it from me for now. Thanks for visiting my blog!

Hello! Today my post is about a Christmas card I made for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge -- Simon Says: Christmas.

I created the background with a Simon Says Stamp stencil and distress oxide. I decided to deviate from the usual Christmas colors and instead create something in pastel colors. The color combination is simply gorgeous and I love the chalky feel of distress oxide!

To turn it into a Christmas card, I die-cut the words, Peace, Love and Joy from Penny Black dies in shimmer white cardstock. However, the words blended in with the busy background, so I die-cut the same words in pink as shadows. This allowed the white words to stand out from the background. 

Lastly, I added a grey snowflake die-cut at the bottom right corner of the card to have a little bit of winter. 

Supplies used are:
Simon Says Stencil Heart Mandala
Penny Black peace love dies
Distress oxides: picked raspberry, salty ocean, twisted citron

That's all I have for now. Till next time!
