Sympathy Card

Stamp: Butterfly embossing folder and stamp (freebie from Papercraft Essential#104), With Sympathy clear stamp, floral oval frame clear stamp
Others: Ink It Up stamp pad, white card

I embossed the white card with the floral butterfly embossing folder, a freebie from craft magazine. Quite easy to make this card actually, no colouring needed. I fussy cut the stamped butterfly and the framed sentiment, adhered onto corrugated paper for some dimension before adhering to the card.

Inking the clear stamp with Memento dye ink did not yield satisfactory result (see below photo) as compare to using Ink It Up stamp pad which cost half the price of Memento.

Easel Easter Card

Stamp: Magnolia Tilda With Flower In Her Hair
tools: watercolour pencils, pastel, Spellbinder Label 4 die, EK Scallop Circle punch, bling butterfl, patterned paper

Attempting an easel card using a normal card size folded the front in half as a stand for the card. Today I found out that I can use pastel instead of ink to distress the edge of the patterned papers! The pastel bought from Japanese thrifty store for less than 2 dollar!

Sunflower Bookmark

Sunflower rubber stamp, TH distress ink pad  (Tea Dye, Peeled Paint, Mustard Seed ), recycle cloth tag, watercolour

Eversince I participated in a craft challeng with watercolour theme, I have been addicted using watercolour to create bookmark.  I surf the internet looking for watercolour stamping tutorial and saw Anna's (of Layers of Ink blog) tutorial. Love her watercolour stamping, simple and beautiful. I tried to emulate but the result is far from satisfactory as seen here. 

I inked the stamp and misted with water, stamped onto watercolour paper. Using an aqua brush, I picked up some darker colour and coloured the centre of the flower. The background was coloured with a combination of distress ink and watercolour.

Brighter Days

sentiment stamp, MS Frond punch, daisy flower punch, MS Pinking Scallop punch, Spellbinder Oval die, Sizzix Ornate Swirls embossing folder

I like to use embossing folder to create dimension layer for the card. It is easy, fast and produce unique texture. Simple design yet so versatile that I can use it for making thank-you cards or birthday cards etc.

Watercolour Bookmark

sentiment: Unity Stamp 'Empowered Words', splatter clear stamp, Memento ink pad, orange and green pigment ink pad, watercolour

Playing with watercolour again to make another bookmark from a snippet of white card using a mixture of orange, yellow and green colour. After left drying overnight, I inked the sentiment and the splatter. This is a folded bookmark, which I find it to be user friendly.
