Autumn Hello


Stamp: Inkadinkado maple leaf rubber stamp, 
sentiment: CC Design
others: multi-tone green and orange colour ink pad, soft pastel

    Today I pull out one of my very much less 'loved' rubber stamp from my craft cabinet (out of sight, out of mind, lol!). I inked the stamp with multi-tone orange dye ink pad and also a multi-tone green ink pad. Fussy cut the leaves. 

    The background was coloured with yellow and orange soft pastel using Nagomi technique, which is using our fingers instead of brush to colour. Stamped the sentiment on snippet of white cardstock and layered onto black cardstock to highlight it before adhering to the slimline card.

Christmas Card


Using printable image from My Craft Studio 'Christmas Teddies', I fussy cut it with scissors. The sentiment was from my stash. Made the poinsettia using the die and the snowflake was from Martha Stewart snowflake punch. Matted 2 pieces of patterned paper and added scallop edge cardstock before adhering onto the base of black cardstock.
