Inspired by Pinterest

Hello everybody,

Welcome to this week's Inspired By Pinterest challenge.
 Here is this week's challenge picture.

Love Blossoms Wedding Invitations by guess what? at
(Photo Credit)

And here is my take on the challenge.

Cardstock: Stampers Select White  and Canyon Clay from Papertrey Ink.
Stamp Sets: Decorative Doilies and Extra Time from Uniko Studio
Accessories: Rhinestones from Kaisercraft.

I guess this is one of the easiest inspiration. You can use any doilie stamp to get this layout. You can also make vintage card using traditional doilie stamp and traditional colours. A modern stamp using say a modern doilie stamp and colours. You can change colours or also make a set using the same layout but in different colours. So here you go, a very easy & cool inspiration for this week. Hope you like it :)

Thanks for visiting :)

Thanks so much for all your wishes for Sid. He came home yesterday. He is fine. There is a bit of swelling but that is all. He looks all chubby like he used to be when he was a toddler lol!  So glad to have both my men back home. Great relief. Kids are back to school today and hubby at work. It is freezing cold here. Heater is on and love my hot tea. Great day to curl up on the couch and watch TV :) Maybe I will do just that in the afternoon :)

PDCC #133

Here is a card I made for The Play Date Cafe Challenge #133

This is a very classic colour combination and I love it.
Here is my card.

Cardstock: Spring Rain and Pure Poppy from PTI
Pattern paper: RWB Classic collection from Uniko Studio
Stamp Sets: Time and Extra Time from Uniko Studio
Accessories: Colourbox Frost white ink, Pure Poppu ink from PTI, White embossing powder heat gun.

As I am posting this, my son Sid is in surgery in Perth. Although it is a minor surgery, things can happen. Praying all goes well. He has been a very good boy. Never once has he complained of pain in his eyes or said the chalazion has blocked his vision even though it has. He has got his dad with him who know about his medical condition as a doctor. Sitting 600 kms away, it is hard for me as a mother not to be with him. Waiting for the phone call. Anytime now.

Thanks for visiting and have a great week!

May PTI Blog Hop

A quick share of a card I made for Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.

Here is this month's inspirational picture

And here is my take on the picture. I made a swing interactive card. I learned to make this card from Julie Ebersole's class on Interactive cards.

In this pictures below, you can see how the circle swings when you open the card.

This is the inside of the card when fully opened.


Cardstock: Stampers Select White and Simply Chartreuse from PTI. Basic Black from SU
Stamp sets: Argyle background stamp, Inside Out Happy Birthday, Day Dreamer from PTI. Cherished from The Craft's Meow
Inks: Archival Jet Black ink and Sage Amuse Ink
Accessories: Rhinestones from Kaisercraft, Border punch from Martha Stewart, Circle dies from Craft Concepts, Gingham digital pattern paper.

Hope you like it :) I believe there is a die to make this type of swing card by Sizzix available at Simon Says Stamp Store if you like to purchase the die. But you can make it without the die as well like I did :) It is all about partial diecutting.

Thanks for visiting and happy hopping!

Dream Big!

Hello everybody,

Washi Tape is trendy now. I have 4 of them and love to have more. Looks like I will be collecting Washi Tape lol! Here is a card I made for PC submission but did not make it. The notched flower and leaves on this card is made using Washi Tape.

Cardstock: White cardstock from Wplus9 and Sand Sahara from SU
Stamp set: Big Greetings from MFT, Background Builder: Knit from Wplus9
Inks: Archival Jet Black Ink
Accessories: Washi tape from Typo shop, Button brad from Basic Grey, Mat Stack die from PTI, Label Layers 4 die and Chevron Impression Plate from Wplus9, Circle dies from Craft Concepts. Leaves die from MFT.

I adhered the Washi tape to a scrap piece of white cardstock, then die cut different size circles, use scissors to cut out "V" shape on each circle randomly and then layer the circles using foam square. Finally finish off with a beautiful brad at the center. Similarly, adhere the green washi tape on scrap cardstock and diecut leaves. Aren't they cute? I love it. You could diecut different flowers using similar method. 

Did you see Julie Ebersole's video on how to make washi tape using tissue paper?  I have to try it. Just that, I don't have a wider scortape on me. Which means shopping time :)

Thanks for all your wishes for my son. We are still to hear from the surgeon about the date of his surgery. Hoping to hear today or tomorrow.  One of you had asked how far away is Perth from where I live. It is about 630 kms. So we either drive for 6 hours or fly depending on finance and time available.

Also thanks for all your wishes on my post yesterday. I am very humbled to received so many wishes:)

Got to go now. Some house chores to be done. Have a great day!

Bright Bite - Tuesday Trigger

Oh weekend can you please extend for a bit longer? I am loving the relaxed day with hubby and kids around:) Went to see the visiting Paediatric Surgeon for my son this morning. My son has a Chalazion under his eyelid which became very big over last week. And now he needs surgery. We will have to fly to Perth next week maybe Tuesday to get it done. It is only a day surgery but fly to Perth to get it done for a day :( But it is priority right now.

Anyway, I stamped like crazy yesterday and this is one of the cards I made.

Cardstock: Stampers Select White
Stamp sets: Postmarks from PTI and Make A Memory from MSS
Inks: Archival Jet Black Ink
Accessories: Copic sketch pens and square punch.

I recently bought some Market Street Stamps and love this image which is from Make A Memory stamp set. I made this card for the Moxie Fab World, Tuesday Trigger-Bright Bite challenge. The STACK of COLOUFUL cookies was my inspiration. I coloured the stack of luggages bright colours to make it funky. Kept the card simple otherwise with just a bold sentiment. Like how it turned out :) Hope you do too.

Cannot wait for the announcement tomorrow :)
 Have a great weekend and see you soon.
