A Birthday Card for Make the Day Special Stamp Store March Challenge

Hello Friends!
 
Long time no see! Life has been busy outside of the blog world but I can't resist joining in the March colour challenge at Make The Day Special Stamp Store. I believe I should just make it in time before it closes for entry. This month's challenge is to pick a minimum of 3 colours from any of the 3 options below. I have picked the first option and tried to use all the colours listed. 
 
So here is my card: 

I am trying out this new technique called Watercolour Smooshing from Make It Monday #204. I am not sure if I am doing this right but maybe I didn't add enough water to my ink so mine looks very spotty. Or, am I using the wrong type of ink for this technique? Any comments on this will be appreciated. However, as this is my first attempt, I quite like it.

I am still very much in love with this bunny from Mama Elephant's Honey Bunny set. It is just so adorable! I used Copic Ciao marker pens to colour in all my images. I also used Stickles, Glossy Accents, yellow cotton thread and sequins to decorate the card. The small cup cake image is from Lawn Fawn- Beep Boop Birthday set and the sentiment is from Avery Elle- Cake & Candles set. Here is a close up picture of the card. (It is great when the camera captures all the shine and glitter!)

I am also entering this card to Papertake Weekly Challenge where this week's theme is "Happy..... Anything".

So... this is the card and I hope you like it. I really need to find time to blog more and God knows how many times I said this. All those cards made and pictures saved on the computer, I really want to share with you all to see what you all say. Well, hope it won't be long till we meet in blog land again! Have a great weekend! See ya~ ^_^

Happy New Year!

Hello there!

Hope you all had a great Christmas and a very happy new year!

I was busy preparing Christmas and New Year and didn't have the chance to blog much in December. However, I am here today with my first card and first blog post for 2015!
 My new year's day was quiet and relaxing and I was in the mood for card making. So I decided to make a new year card to wish everyone a "Happy New Year! May your 2015 be better and filled with love and prosperity!" 
 
I just loved this Pandamonium stamp set from Mama Elephant. These pandas are just so cute! I've also used the little sparkler stamp from Mama Elephant's In My Heart set, but only inked the tip to create the colourful fireworks. The stand alone Happy Script die, also from Mama Elephant, has the most beautiful font. It just makes the card look so elegant! 
 
Here are a couple more close up photos:  
These Pandas were fuzzy cut and then attached by using foam pads.
To make all lanterns shine, Stickles glitter glue has been applied.  
"new year" stamp is from The Big, the Bold and the Happy set by Winnie & Walter.
This has been stamped and heat embossed in white.
This card was inspired by using the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #104. I flipped the sketch 180 degrees.
  I am also entering this card to:
I hope you like the card and thank you for stopping by. If you are having the 2nd of January off, like me ^_^, then enjoy your long new year's break!

Mummy to be... Congratulation!

Hello there!

Half way through the week. Keep on going, weekend will soon be here!! ^_^

A good friend of mine, Monica, is going to have a caesarean tomorrow. She will become a mummy again for the third time and I can't wait to meet her little one. I made this card over the weekend for her, to celebrate and wish her good luck on the delivery of her baby boy.
Here is a closer look of the image.
This stamp image is an old one. It's from Elzybells which I believe is no longer available. It is the perfect 'mummy to be' image. I hand wrote the words and I hope it is not too ugly!! ^_^

As I recently heard another great news from my Japanese friend Kiko, I decided to make another card for her too. She is expecting a baby in January next year. Life is just wonderful when you are surrounded with all this great, surprising news!

So here are the cards. Same layout, same image but just slightly different colours.
I have created these two cards based on this week's sketch at Friday Sketch Challenge #82. It is an easy to follow sketch and I like it.  
That's it for now. Thanks for stopping by and I will see you soon.
