Christmas Card


stamp: candycane and sentiment clear stamp and  freebie from magazine
others: patterned paper, edge punch, twine, soft pastel

The candy cane image was with light magenta ink pad, fussy cut and adhere onto a cut-out tag which was embossed with Sizzix  embossing folder. Punch out from white cardstock with pine edge punch and the bottom white layered was fussy cut to emulate snow landscape. I coloured the background of the 2 white cardstock layers using light blue soft pastel.

Happy Anniversary

Stamp: Clearly Bessotted 'Snowdrop'
others: patterned paperMijello Mission Gold watercolour, 

Stamped the image on white cardstock and coloured with Mijello watercolour pan using aqua brush. It is easier and more convenient using the pan and aqua brush. 

I did the slide and lock card technique for the first time. This is part of the technique introduced in Butterfly Challenge #161 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with S for Slide and Lock Card. Have fun learning this technique. 

The sentiment was from stamped on snippet of white cardstock (I keep all leftover in a ziplock bag). Added a tiny heart embellishment too.

Hope we meet again

stamp: TPC Studio 'Transportation' clear stamp
circles mask, TH Mustard Seed and Broken China distress inkpad

Another stamp from TPC Studio that I am using for the first time after keeping inside (out of sight, out of mind) craft cabinet for 10 years or so. 

The stamp was inked onto white cardstock and fussy cut out. I inked the background of the bookmark size white cardstock with distress ink and blending brush. The bubble like background was inked using a circle or dots mask.

Sentiment was stamped directly onto the bookmark.




Hope your day is amazing

 stamp: TPC Studio Transportation
stars and stripes embossing folder, soft pastel

Had a play with my stamp which was bought more than 10 years ago and never use it. Inked the stamp on a snippet of white cardstock. Fussy cut the image with scissors. Pull out another piece of white cardstock and embossed it with stars and stripes embossing folder. I inked the background using soft pastel. I love using them because it is therapeutic and easy to blend the colours.
