To make this card, I started with sponging the white card panel with Picked Raspberry, Festive Berries, Ripe Persimmon and Abandoned Coral distress inks. Then I die cut a white panel using The Garden die from penny Black  which I layered on the sponged card panel using foam adhesive. I love the colours peeking out of the die cut. This panel is adhered to card front.

The sentiment is from Penny Black You and Me stamp set which I white heat embossed on the black cardstock and adhered on the card front with bunched up silver thread. Quick and simple card but the colours and contrast makes a huge impact.

Ellen Hutson, Essentials by Ellen

Hello Gorgeous!

A quick post today. I made this card in twenty minutes this morning before going to IKEA. My friend wanted to come along but she has some work to finish first. So in that time, I decide to make a card for Ellen Hutson’s Pin Sights Challenge. Here is the Pin Sights Inspiration.

This is my card for the challenge.
I started with spattering my card base with navy Mr. Huey and left it to dry. To make my focal point, I sponged a scrap piece of white textured card stock with Fired Brick and Ripe Persimmon distress inks. Then sprayed with some Wplus9 shimmer. Once dry, I die cut all the elements using Wild Garden die set from Essentials by Ellen. Then clustered and glued the flowers and leaves on the card front. 
For sentiment, I red heat embossed the “Hello Gorgeous” from Hello Gorgeous stamp set from Essentials By Ellen on a navy cardstock. I adhered this using foam adhesives. Finally embellished with Pretty Pink Posh’s Cobalt and Raspberry sequins along with white rhinestones.
Thanks for visiting by blog today!

One more no line colouring card!

Afternoon everyone!
I have another card to share using Penny Black Way Cool stamp set.
This is the second boy image from Way Cool stamp set I shared yesterday. Here it is again for you.
way cool! picture
I had used the top left image on my card I shared yesterday. In this card, I have used the boy with the ball in his hand. I stamped with Memento Peanut Brittle ink and copic coloured making the line invisible. Again, I had coloured this image some time ago and did not get a chance to make a card until today. I added pattern papers to colour coordinate with the boy’s outfit. And embellished with enamel dots.
All the products used to create this card is listed below.
Thanks for stopping by again today!

Create A Smile, Penny Black

Way Cool! – No line colouring!

Evening everyone! For some, you probably waking up. Good morning to you all!
I have been hoarding some of images that I have been working on but did not have the time to make a card with them. Today I have been on a crafting marathon. I decided to make a card using one of the images, I had coloured long time ago. Here it is!
I started thinking this will be a one layer card and did no line colouring which I shared with you previously. I then stamped and coloured one more because once I finished the colouring, I felt it needed that bit more colour to balance the big coloured image on the bottom left. So I trimmed the card to a panel with an angle at the top. On a card base, I added some fun pattern paper from Create A Smile to colour coordinate with the image. I then layered the image panel using foam adhesives for dimension. Finally added some black glitter sprinkle from Doodlebug. 
Here is a closeup!
The images and sentiment are from Penny Black. 
The stamp set is called Way Cool! 
way cool! picture
Very cute images in this set. I love them I have coloured both the boys and cannot wait to colour the girls.
 I have all the products used on this card below!
Thanks for all the love and support!

Woot! Woot!

Hello everyone,
I am a big woot woot to share with you today. The annual edition of Australian Cardmaking Stamping & Papercraft is now available to purchase. This edition is jam packed with so many inspirations and tutorials. It is a must have in my opinion.
I am truly blessed to be on the cover of the magazine with this Father’s day card.
I am pretty proud of this card and was a bit restless waiting for so long to share with you. I did share a picture or two of the making of the card long time ago in my Instagram. But I am very thrilled with how this card turned out.
I have used Altenew’s To the Moon stamp set on my card, sponged the night sky background using distress inks. The sentiments were from two stamp sets – Altenew’s To the Moon and Parentville from Winnie & Walter. 
Apart from this card, I have a double page 1 die 4 ways feature showcasing four different ways to feature a die. Also a tutorial on Watercoloured die cuts.

If you like to subscribe, click here! The magazine is available to purchase at news agents and supermarkets.

Thanks for sharing my excitement!

To make this card, I made a landscape card base using white cardstock. I then stamped the confetti dots from Congratulations stamp set from Simon Says Stamp using Versafine Black ink. Then on a separate white panel, I die cut Brilliant Gift border die from Simon Says Stamp and the scalloped border using Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Border 2 die. To the back of this panel, I adhered acetate sheet. I also die cut the Brilliant Gifts border die using black glitter paper and inlaid this die in its place on the white panel. I added foam adhesives around the die cut area on the back of the panel, added the newly iridescent sequins from Pretty Pink Posh called Lavender Moon and Bermuda Blue. I also added the new soon to be released beautiful baby pink iridescent sequins. Love the colours together. I closed the back with another white panel to make a shaker panel.

The sentiment was silver heat embossed on the front of this panel. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Congratulations set. I used the negative dew drop black glitter die cut from the Brilliant Gifts die to embellish the sentiment. Finally I adhered this panel on the card front. Love the subtle sparkle from the black glitter paper and the sequins.

Runway Inspired Challenge #88

Afternoon everyone!

It is time for new Runway Inspired Challenge #88. Are you ready?

source: style.com

Very typical Missoni outfit. Zigzag/chevron pattern is his trade mark. Intially, I wanted to use chevron stamp set or dies on my card but them I decided to against it. I wanted to use the colours from the outfit and a pattern on the background instead. Here is my take on the challenge.

For the background, I die cut this fishnet pattern using MFT’s Fishnet Cover plate die. I then randomly trimmed off the edges as I wanted an uneven background. I adhered this on the white card base by applying glue to only a few places at the centre of the die cut. I wanted the edges to be raised.

Next, I stamped and copic coloured the flowers from  Magnolias for Her stamp set from Altenew. I picked the colours from Missoni’s outfit. I like blending different colours. A bit difficult but super fun. Then cut out the flowers by hand. I clustered the flowers and bud and adhered using glue on the bottom of the flowers and foam on the top to give the raised effect. The sentiment is from  Birthday Greetings stamps et also from Altenew. To bring the card together, I used doodlebug’s yellow and pink sprinkles dots. Here is a closeup photo.

Happy Birthday clsoeup1//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js
