Wonderful News!

Friday, June 27, 2014
Yes! I have some wonderful news to share with you all! I have been selected by Just For Fun Stamps and Clear Scraps to be one of their team designers recently ! I'm so very excited and grateful to be given such an amazing opportunity to work for them, they have such great products that I can't wait to get my hands on! For some of you who have not heard about them, Just For Fun Stamps is a stamp manufacturer (they manufacture/sell many different types of stamps for different occasions such as Birthday, Wedding, Anniversary Halloween - just to name a few) whereas Clear Scraps produces stencils, masks, albums, inks and many more (they have monthly kit too, great for scrapbooking and card making if you are interested)! Take a moment and check out their websites to learn more about their products, I'm sure you will like them. :-)

I will start posting for JFF Stamps in July and the beginning of August for Clear Scraps. Don't forget to come back to see what we will create! 

Here I want to take the opportunity to thank both companies for giving me the chance, it truly is a great honor to be on your teams! THANK YOU! XOXO

Now move on to the card, made this card after I saw a color combo of grey and green on my hubby's phone when he showed me something. So I used shades of black to make this Thank You card. I only had three ink pads, black (Versafine), Charcoal and Granite (Hero Arts) thus the flow of color from dark to lighter grey is not vivid. 

The background flowers and Thank You words are stamped image.

Stamped another flower image and colored it with Spectrum Noir markers in green.

As for you, thank you too! You have been an amazing and loyal reader/supporter! :)

Love You Bunches!

Here is a love card on a non-valentine's day! I was playing with dauber and inks and this is the result of my experiment, totally worth the time. hehe. I daubed the background with different colors of ink and sprayed with gold and white Color Shine (one after another, spray the gold and let dry before applying the white color) from Heidi Swapp. It gives the card a beautiful shiny treatment. :)

Embossed with Cricut embossing folder side-ways, leaving enough room for title

"XOXO" embellishment alphas are from Basic Grey, I recently purchased their warehouse sale's box and it contains pretty much alphabet stickers in there. So I picked one of the styles and embossed it in gold embossing powder.

Co-incidentally, the heart-shape embellishments they are also from BG.

Close-up, love the gold!

Thank you again for taking time to look at my project, I'm grateful for your support! Thank you and have a wonderful day!

Coloring with Spectrum Noir

Tuesday, June 17, 2014
Coloring flower with Spectrum Noir Markers.

Water-colored the embossed greens in the background 

Second attempt, somehow the same color doesn't work as well as the first card shown above. The blue flower looks great though, love the color just spread out smoothly and evenly. I should perhaps improve the red/pink flower by adding another layer of light pink all over.

Title stamp from Jilibean Soup. Background flowers are from the same stamp but embossed in white embossing powder.

Supplies for Card 1:
- Core'dinations White Card Stock
- Prima 6x6 Paper Pad
- Fiskars Stamps
- Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers
- Martha Stewart Punch 
- Darice Embossing Folder
- Loew Cornell 36 Watercolor

Supplies for Card 2:
- Recollections Kraft Card Base
- Fiskars Stamp
- Jilibean Soup Samp
- Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers
- Inkadinkado Embossing Powder (White)

I have two cards to share today, made them while my second child was napping. Feeling satisfied, indeed it is therapeutic :)

Card 1 - Wishing you Joy

Background is embossed stamped image in clear powder, water colored all over in grey followed by daubing around each star with grey stamp pad from Tsukineko

Embellished with cut-outs of stamped image from Hero Arts Stamp

Card 2 - You make the world a better place

The current trend is water-coloring so I have been playing a lot with watercolor too lately. Used Loew Cornell 36-Color watercolor.

Paper is not flat due to the water-coloring, I have seen some people does not have such problem. Anyone of you know how to solve this issue? Any guidance is greatly appreciated!
