An unforgettable birthday card!


Sharing with your another birthday card using Wplus9 Unforgettable stamp set and dies.

Unforgettable card

I did a mint colour wash on the background using Zig Gansai Tambi watercolour. Then adhered the copic coloured balloon upside down and the elephant on top of the balloon which now is a ball.

Then stamped the sentiment from the Unforgettable stamp set and the stars as well. Coloured the stars with glitter pen and accented with Fresh Mint 6mm and 4mm sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

I absolutely love the elephant. I cannot get enough of them. Just adorable.

Another elephant card!


Good morning everyone,

Wow! it is Friday! So looking forward to the weekend especially the morning sleeping in. And in one week, school closes and two weeks of term one school holidays. Cannot wait for a change in routine.

Today I am sharing my second card using Wplus9's Unforgettable stamp set and dies. I tried to create a scene to which I added the elephants. Here is my card.

Happy Birthday 1

I have used two different colouring techniques in this card. The elephants are copic coloured and the sky and landscape are watercoloured.  I have used Pretty Pink Posh's Stitched Border 2 Dies to die cut and layer my watercoloured landscape. The branch from which one of the elephant hangs is from Wplus9. The frame is from MFT. The sequins are from Sugar Plum sequins mix from Pretty Pink Posh.

I am entering this card into Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.

Just Saying!

After few attempts to purchase The Unforgettable stamp set and dies from Wplus9, I was able to get it from Butterfly Reflections Ink . Did I tell you that international shipping at Butterfly Reflections Ink is very reasonable and fast as well ;) I looked at the set like a little child receiving surprise present. LOVE the elephants in the stamp set. Normally I am not a big fan of cute looking animal stamps but I have soft side for elephants. I have grown up seeing them almost everyday. I adore them. So I have to have this set. Anyway, I stamped, coloured, die cut the super cute elephants yesterday and today I made cards. I am sharing one today.

Just saying card

This card is inspired by Elle, the she elephant from Ice Age II movie. Remember Elle used to hang from the trees like her possum brothers? So when I first saw the hanging elephant in the set. I wanted to make a card inspired by Elle. Luckily, Wplus9 has this beautiful Foliage Frame Dies which I have used on green and brown watercoloured paper to die cut the frame and branch. I adhered this frame and branch to the card front. Then adhered the elephant as if he/she is hanging from the branch.

I stamped the sentiment towards the left bottom. I felt adding couple of more elephants will balance the card. And it did. I love it so much that I am not adding any embellishments.

Pin Sights Challenge

Evening everyone,
A quick post today. I played along Essentials by Ellen Pin-Sights Challenge

Banner-PIN-sights


Pinterest Challenge 1

I love this colour combination. Black/White with gold - very classic and beautiful. And who does not like B/W stripes and gold glitter? I cannot let go of this challenge. Here is my take on the challenge.

Hello Gorgeous

I have used Bold Blooms die set and stamp set from Essential by Ellen to make my card. I die cut the Bold Blooms die in black striped pattern paper and layered them on a white card stock panel spattered with gold colour wash from Heidi Swapp. 

Hello gorgeous closeup

I stamped the sentiment from Bold Blooms stamp set on the panel and mounted this panel on the card base with striped pattern paper on the bottom and a strip of gold glitter. Finally added some gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
