Multiple Spinning Love Card Tutorial

Wednesday, May 8, 2019
As requested by many lovely you I decided to post the tutorial here, if you are looking for the tutorial for the following card you've came to the right place! Hope you guys find it helpful. Happy Crafting and thank you so much for the love/comment you left for my card! :)


Step 1: Cut nesting heart shapes on adhesive foams, starting from the third dies of the set and in pair work all the way to the smallest die (two copies per pair). Decorate it with red cardstock hearts.

Step 2: Using the largest heart die, cut shape on the card base and both the red cardstock and decorative paper.

Step 3: Adhere the red cardstock on the card base and apply double-sided foam tapes all around the red cardstock. Cut a thread that is 5 ¾” long and stick onto the foam tapes.

Step 4: Arrange the base for each size of shape behind the thread as shown above, stick the matching shapes to the base (sandwiching the thread).

Step 5: Stick decorative papers to the front of card base and inside card, finish card by adhering stamped sentiment to the card.

Multiple Spinning Love Card

Sunday, May 5, 2019
Crafter's Companion will be on HSN in two days, I'm so excited to see everyone's creations using those new released products! I'm here today to share one of the projects I made for this release using the nesting heart dies. I'm always into interactive cards, you know those shakers, pull-up, pop-up and many more others including this multiple-spinning love card! It might not be Valentine's day but honestly you can make this anytime for your loved ones, for birthday, anniversary or just because!

Let take a look at this spinning card in action, I mean multiple-spinning card because spinning card just isn't cool enough so I added a couple more. LOL. Pardon my dark video background, I didn't have sufficient natural light and still figuring out how to edit a video's lighting. hehe. Enjoy!

If you do like this card and want to make one, make sure to check Crafter's Companion website. My tutorial will be shared over there! Happy creating and thanks for stopping by!

Let's Make Cocktails - HSN May 7th!

Saturday, April 27, 2019
It has been a very long hiatus since my last post, nothing big to announce I'm just have been busy with everyday life routines. We are finally settling in at our new home, it took quite awhile to find that familiarity (the feeling of being home) but it's not that hard to do together with the family. 

I'm back to share my first project I have created for HSN for this coming May 7th! May is definitely a celebratory month for us, my husband big day is in May so is our wedding anniversary. And don't forget about Mother's day (which falls on the same day as anniversary day this year!), so I don't think a glass of cocktail is enough! LOL. Hence I made it more fun by adding some shaker elements to it, let's get the party started! 

Without further delay, here is the card for the day!

This shaker card is made with the Let's Make Cocktails shaker dies and stamps set, yes - you have everything you need to make this shaker card! Of course, you will need your own glue and clear acetate! lol. They are several others designs available so make sure to check out Crafter's Companion Facebook or CC's HSN Fans group to see more inspirations shared by other design team members. And while you are at it, prepare the shopping list because I have a feeling it's going to run out fast.

That's all for today! I'll be back to share more projects for the coming HSN release soon. Have a wonderful day my crafty friends!

A friend is like a good bra...!

Tuesday, January 29, 2019
Made something fun today, planning to send this to special friends who get my jokes. It's not hard to find a friend but to find a friend who understands you and won't get offended by your goofiness requires some luck, fate and effort. I'm grateful I have some close friends who accept me for who I am. People who first know me will take me as a quiet and very serious person (thanks to my introverted personality) but once you get to know the inner me, I like to tell jokes too and laugh hard. Life is too short to be serious all the time, don't you think? I used to be very responsive in conversations and make people laugh with sarcastic reply but after living in the States for a long period of time without these close friends around to have fun with, I kinda became even more serious and less humour in me (lack of practice I guess). I miss my friends back home, miss their company and laughter. So here it is, I dedicate this silly card to you Chin Ling, Oi Wun, Ivy Cheng, Li Yong, Qiao Shuang, Chew Fah. Thank you girls for your support and love all these years, wish I could hug you right now!

P.S: Sorry for my old rusty brain if I missed your name, please know that you have always been in the deepest part of my heart! :)

Happy Birthday Card Using Tri-Blend Markers

Wednesday, January 23, 2019
Is anyone crafting in this cold weather?! I don't feel so good today, not a big fan of cold weather. But instead of resting in bed I decided to color this cute bunny (I know it's not Easter yet although I wish it was). It's just too adorable to not color it and using the Tri-Blend markers it's even easier to color the flowers in the pot.

I don't usually use grey on my card but I want to try something different so I will experiment using colors I wouldn't normally use in my future creations. I hope you like this card!

Twinkling Trellis With Pretty Peony

Friday, January 18, 2019
My first card using both the new Create-a-Card Twinkling Trellis die and the Sara Signature's Pretty Peony paper crafting collection. This adopted the shaker card concept because there is no sequins in it even though I added a layer of clear acetate for the dimensional look.

The background was created using the Gemini FoilPress machine, the stamping plate used is called Grande Dot. This foiling machine is the best, it makes no errors, every foiling is perfect. The flower is a stamp from the Pretty Peony collection, it comes with a coordinating die so you don't have to fussy cut them. The stamped image is colored with Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend markers.

I'm BACK!! - Celebrate Shaker Card

Thursday, January 17, 2019
Hi all, I'm back! It has been a long hiatus since my disappearance back in September last year, can't believe it's more than four months since my last post. If you are wondering what we are up to it's because we were in the process of moving! It was not easy to get everything back to routine, my kids need to change schools and many other things to touch up around the house. As a matter of fact, I'm still unpacking boxes after moving in two months ago. And I had just set up my small craft station last week so I get to start crafting again, yay!! (Still having difficulty finding my supplies!)

I made a couple of cards with the new craft table hubby got me for Christmas, I told him new things always inspire me. LOL. Here is one of the cards I made. I'm so glad Crafter's Companion has finally came out with their version of "torn panel" background die, love the trendy look! I colored the background using Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers in rainbow colors and create a shaker cards with it. I  filled each panel with unique sequins, I think it makes the card pops out even more. The sentiment is from one of the Gemini's Expression dies called Celebrate, it was on HSN last week!

Here is the list of supplies I used:
- Gemini Junior Machine
- Gemini Create-a-Card Background Die (Torn Panel)
- Gemini Expressions Everyday Sentiment Die (Celebrate)
- Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers
- Crafter's Companion Watercolor Cardstock
- Varieties of Sequins
