Simon Says: Something New


Today's blog is on two Christmas cards that I made back in December. I simply adore the MFT dog and yeti stamps and decide to have them as the focus of my two cards.

I stamped the images on Neenah Solar white card stock, coloured them with copic markers before using circle dies to cut them out. 

I decided to pop the images up with a larger circle and also added foam backing behind the smaller circle.

I then used some green and red ribbons and brown glitter card stock in my stash to give some colors to an otherwise all-white card.

For sentiments, I used those in the stamp set and added snow brads to accessorise the card further. The brads are brand new and I love that there are different patterns of snow with glossy and matt metals.

I'm taking part in the latest Simon Says: Something New Wednesday Challenge with these cards.

Thanks for visiting my blog and enjoy your day!

Xmas Tags

Hi there! December passed in a flash, what with holidays, gatherings and a frantic rush to get presents. I was busy that I did not manage to take part in any challenges or post any of my creations. Now that the rush is over, I'm back!

It was a lot of work but fun to create these tags. The MFT dogs and yeti are so cute! I die-cut a rectangle with the MFT Rectangle Peek-A-Boo Window die and adhered a ribbon behind the window.

I then stamped the dogs and yetis on Neenah Solar White card stock, coloured them with Comic markers before fuzzy-cutting them. These cute animals were then adhered in the middle of the tags.

After that, I die-cut the sentiments with red glitter card stock and adhered them and the green ribbons.

Lastly, I punched holes at the top of the tags and added ribbons and twine. This was a good opportunity to use my supply of ribbons and twine. 

I created about twenty tags to go with the Christmas presents for my friends. It was a joy for me to see their delight and appreciation for the tags I made. 

I'm submitting these tags for the Simon Says: Anything Goes Wednesday Challenge.

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!
