Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge


Hello and welcome to another Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.


I am guest designing this month for the challenge Yay!


This week's challenge is about Animal Antics. I have used Stampendous stamp set on my card.

SSS Stampedeous stamps

I stamped and watercoloured the pig image from Stampendous On the Farm Stamp Set. I then cut the image out. For the background I diecut Sunshine die from Simon Says Stamp from a white panel. Adhered adhesive sheet on the back of the die cut. I then added gold and orange glitters to the sunburst and blended them. Love the sparkle fro the glitter. I then adhere the pig image using foam adhesive. For the sentiment I die cut the Talk Bubble die from Simon Says Stamp and stamped the sentiment. I also die cut a cloud from Where the Heart is dies also from Simon Says Stamp which I layered behind the Talk Bubble die. The completed panel is mounted on the card front.  Love the result. Hope you do too.

Reverse Confetti card

I am inspired by the colours on the inspirational picture. So I water coloured the background using those colours. I then stamped the sentiment on it when dry. I love a bold sentiment. I then stamped the leaves diagonally across to frame the sentiment. I die cut the flowers from scrap piece of water coloured paper and layered it. Finally accented with sequins. I then used the Wink of Stella shimmer pen and brushed the "COLOR"  as well as the leaves. This panel is layered over pattern paper from Pink Paislee which is then adhered to the card front. Love the result.

CAS(E) this Sketch #72 Challenge


Hey everybody,
Welcome back to my blog.
 I have a brand new sketch for you today from CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge Blog
This cool sketch is designed by Julie Day



This is my card using Julie's sketch.

Be unique card

I wanted to do something outside the box. I think I did achieve it. The spectacles are from Impression Obsession. I die cut one of them in golf foil and rest in same colour. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn from Clear to See stamp set. Just love how it turned out especially the background pattern paper from Studio Calico and addition of the gold strip on the bottom. Hope you like it too.

Come and play along CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge Blog for more design team inspiration and linky to link your take on the sketch.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge


Hello and welcome to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.


I am guest designing this month for the challenge Yay!


Since we are close to Easter, our challenge this week is create an Easter/Spring card

I have used some Basic Grey products to make my card for the challenge.
Here is my card.

SSS Basic Grey card

I decided to make a spring card using Basic Grey Fresh Cuts pattern paper for the background and Fresh Cuts Wood Veneers embellishments. One the wood veneer embellishments, I decided I wanted some glitter. So I added double sided tape on the clouds and added gold glitter. I did the same on the butterfly body and used pink glitter. Love the bright, colourful and cheerful spring card. The sentiment is using Basic Grey alpha stickers. I also added a strip of floral pattern paper on the inside of the card and "Spring" using alpha stickers

SSS Basic Grey card inside

Shades of LOVE!

Hey everybody,

 I was trying to catch up on DT cards for challenges next week, but then got distracted browsing challenges. I ended up making a card for CASE Study Challenge #185 :)


This is Jaclyn Miller's muse card for this challenge. And here is my take on the challenge.

#1 Shades of Love

I love the vase on the Jaclyn's card. But I didn't wanted to stamp vases on my card too. So instead I found these candy jars stamp set from Sweet Stamp Shop called Jar of Sweets. I think this set is retired but I love these candy jars. I used masking technique and stamped the jars. Then coloured them using copics. I then stamped the sentiment on the layered coloured jars. Just to add some interest, I stamped the colour wheel partially diagonally on the panel. I added a tiny heart shaped enamel on the lid of one of the jars. Love the pop of colours from the jars against the white space.

Thanks for stopping by!

There is still time....

I played along the challenge with one more card. Here is mine.

Newton Nook Baby card

I decided to do an ombre background with blue and stamped the images from Newton Nook's Winged Wishes stamp set. Coloured them with watercolour too. The onesies and the birdies I stamped on scrap watercolour paper, coloured and cut them out to adhere on the card front. I simply love the background and the  watercoloured elements.Come and play along the challenge with me. Check out Curtain Call Inspirational Challenge Blog for design team inspiration.

You're so Awesome!


Happy Sunday morning!
Sharing with you a card I made this morning. I got up early even though it is Sunday, while everybody else is asleep, I decided to play along Runaway Inspired Challenge #57.



I really loved the collage background and decided to make my own background for my card.
After seeing the re-release of the 80's stamp set by Wplus 9, I thought that set was perfect to make my background. So using the colours from the picture above, I made my own collage background. Here it is:

Grunge background

Cool huh! Very happy with the result. I then trimmed the background for my card front. Here is the finished card.

You 're so Awesome

I also used the trimmed strip of background to adhere inside of the card.

You're so Awesome inside

This is one of the card which makes me proud and happy because this was exactly what I visioned before I sat to make the card.

CAS(E) this Sketch #71

Second post for today. Here is my first post Virginia's View Challenge Card

it is time to share with you a new sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge Blog.
This sketch is designed by me :)


And here is my take on my own sketch.

Celebrate card for cas(e) this sketch

I have used Tim Holtz's spatter stencil and sponged some Audrey Blue ink from Simon Says Stamp and Orange Soda from Hero Arts to get my spatter background. I then diecut a Delicate Doilie from MFT using vellum cardstock which I layered with bunched up thread. The word CELEBRATE is also a die from MFT which I die cut in blue and black card stock. I have layered the black diecut on the blue diecut which is slightly offset like casting a shadow except that my shadow is blue not black :)  That is because I wanted my sentiment to be bold and not bluey. You know what I mean? Did not want too much blue as there is two huge blue spatter on the background already. Finally accented with Pretty Pink Posh's Sparkly clear sequins.

Check out CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge Blog for design team and guest designer take on my sketch. If you like to play along the sketch, we love to see it. The blog has a linky for you to link your projects.

Have a great day!
