Ooo! Big Sigh! After a long time I sat
on at(lol! just read my post and laughed! Imagine sitting on my craft table lol!) my craft table and made couple of cards this morning. The same way I used to before I lost my mojo. lol! And I love how my cards turned out too:)
Here is one card I made for Gallery Idol 2013.
I went for a collage style. I used the grid cardstock as the background. Then sponged some stripes using The Crafter’s Workshop 12 x 12 mask and Going Gray ink. The stamp sets I have used are LLD Journal It-Playlist and LLD Document it-Rock on from MFT. I have also used Super Star from Wplus9. I chose Navy, Orange and Green colour combination. The “&” is wood veneer from Studio Calico. The spatter is from using orange neon Mr. Huey from Studio Calico. Love how the card turned out. I cannot wait to show my son in the evening to see if he likes it:)

Today is the last Saturday in the month of May! You are serious? May is already over? I just cannot believe this. Weeks are flying by so quickly for me. Just not what I want. But last Saturday of the month means Super Free Saturday at Uniko Studio.
Uniko Studio is offering free digital papers and stamps collection called Simple Bloom.
It is free! You can download them from Uniko Studio shop and play with them. Here is my card using these gorgeous digital stamps and pattern paper.
I used photoshop elements to mask and layer the flower. Added the sentiment and printed it out on a white cardstock. I then coloured the flowers using watercolour pencils – red, orange red, orange and grey for the flowers and yellow, green and grey for the stems. I then accent the flower cluster with enamel dots. The stripped pattern paper is also from the Simple Bloom collection which is free from Uniko Studio Shop.
Here are couple of closeups of the coloured flowers.
I love the three enamel dots on the sides. Looks like M &Ms:)
If you download and make a project using Simple Blooms, why not upload your project into Uniko Studio’s Flickr gallery HERE .

I am very late with this post. I had planned to write and post instead of scheduling as I had nothing planned!!! But I had totally forgotten that my son’s school Junior Concert was last evening! How can forget such an important event? Bad mother:( So by the time I came back home it was 11PM and I went straight to bed. So sorry about the late posting:(
Here is the new CAS(E) this Sketch challenge sketch for this week.
A beautiful sketch by Jackie! And here is my take on the sketch.
I have used AveryElle’s Knotty stamps to make my card. Love that gorgeous anchor with the rope. I am also entering this card in AveryElle’s monthly challenge.
Check out CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge blog for more DT inspirations.
Cannot wait to see what you do with the sketch.
For the Blog Hop, we are featuring a brand new set called Chalkboard Birthday!
Here is my card using Chalkboard Birthday Stamp Set.
All I have done is just stamped the stamp on black tag using white ink and sponged the edges using white ink. Added a bit of colour using red twine. Simple to make but makes an impact.
