The Ton August Challenge

Hi peeps! It's been a bit quiet on my blog, isn't it. Well, we're getting closer to our moving date, so it's been a bit  hectic between trying to get our current house ready for sale & finishing our new house. I literally almost passed out last week from exhaustion. I should know better, but when I set my mind to get things done, I just keep going till it's done and then boom... all out.

Cross fingers hopefully everything goes well and we can really move in to our new house next week.

Anyway, new month it also means time for new challenge at The Ton Challenge blog. Thi smonth theme is summer and for me, summer means bright colors, so I created this Sunflower shaker card.

For my card I used Fresh Cut Sunflowers Coordinating Outlines, Wishful Wildflowers, Fresh Cut Sunflowers Coordinating dies, Modern Labels dies, and Belle's Dress Couture Mix.

With card this bright, it should brighten the day of anyone who received it, right? Well, at least I hope so. I feel like this car just ooze with cheerfulness. :)

Ah yes, can't forget the shimmer. Any flower card just looks better with some shimmer in my opinion. Well peeps, that's all from me today. Hope you will join us and play along. You can enter the challenge and find all the details HERE.

May your August be an awesome one! Cheers...

Honey Bee Under The Sea Blog Hop

Good morning crafty peeps! Come swim along with Honey Bee Stamps New Release - Under The Sea collection! Everything is available for purchase today in Honey Bee shop HERE.

Since there's quite a few blog for you to hop to, let's get on with the card right away, shall we?

For my card, I played with the fun & beautiful Zen Ocean set. Seriously, this set is so great for coloring.

To make this card I started with stamping and heat embossed the image on a piece of watercolor cardstock panel and then watercolor it.

Now, granted this piece is look different than what ended up on my card. I messed up the card in such an amazing way that it's totally ruin and cannot  be used and pretty much I have to re-do the whole card all over. 

Typical me, when I re-do it I changed my mind on some of the colors and decided to make the colors more intense, so, that's why the colored image on the progress pic looks different than what ended up on my finished card.

Once I adhere the panel to the card base, I added a couple small clear dew drops for embellishment.

Now, let's Shellabrate with some splashingly sweet prizes!! We will have TWO winners that will each receive a $50 gift certificate to purchase new goodies in the Honey Bee Stamps Store.

Hi peeps! How' it going? Happy July. Yep, first half of the year has officially passed. Time flies, isn't it?

With new month, that's also mean new challenge from The Ton Stamps. For this month, we have a fun mood board for your challenge inspiration.

Jut look at that amazing mood board. You can use the color or one of the theme or whatever caught your fancy and create a project based on that.

Here's my card that inspired by the flower theme. You know me, I love flowers.

For my card I started with Watercolor Wreath. I used Rose Quartz ink for the flower and added details (shade) to the wreath with Copic. Once that done, I stamped the Beautiful Butterflies, followed by Penned Sentiments. Finished by adding some Dew Drops for final embellishment. 

So, what caught your eyes from the mood board? I sure hope you will play along. simply by playing along & entering your card HERE, you'll have a chance to win gift certificate to the shop.

SSS Anything Goes


Hi peeps! Today, I am back for the last challenge for this June for Simon Says Stamp. This time the theme is anything goes. Fun and easy peasy, right? And, since today is my birthday, I thought it's only appropriate that I do a birthday card.

Happy birthday to me! I am turning 42 today, but hey, I have Peter Pan syndrome, so I definitely don't feel like 42. Hah!

Since, cute stuff makes me happy, I went all cute with my card. When it comes to cute stuff, Clearly Besotted is one of my favorite! I love their stuff. Here, I used Clearly Besotted Sweet Treats for my center piece. I stamped all 6 image from the set with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them with Copic.

I stamped MFT Abstract Background directly on the card panel with Versamark ink and then adhere the hamster panel. Finished by stamping the sentiment from the same Clearly Besotted Sweet Treats set. Pretty simple card, but full of cuteness.

That's all from me today. I hope you will play along! To see all the challenge detail and to enter you card please click HERE. Thank you for stopping by here.

Truly Grateful


Hi peeps! It's time for a new SSS Wednesday Challenge. This week it's all about patterned paper. Yep, simply create a project using patterned paper and that's it. Easy peasy requirement, right?

For my card, I created a thank you card using patterned paper from Doodlebug Swiss Dot Rainbow Petite Print

I've been into stamping on patterned paper lately. It's a great and quick way to added interest to a card design. 

I started by stamping the beautiful MFT Rose All Over Background directly on the patterned paper and heat embossed it with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. Once that done, using SSS Big Thanks dies, I die cut the word directly on the stamped panel and then run it again three more times on a piece of dark cardstock. This way I can layered and pop the word "Thanks" more, so it's not completely blend it with the background. Followed by sentiment from MFT Geometric Greenery set and of course, I have to dot some finishing touches using Tonic Pale Periwinkle Nuvo Jewel Drop (love this stuff!!). 

Well peeps, that's all from me today. I hope you will play along! To see all the challenge detail and to enter you card please click HERE. Thank you for stopping by here.

SugarPea Design Sweet Release Day 4

Hi peeps!! How's thing going? We're getting closer to SugarPea Designs sweet release day (everything that you've seen will be available in store tomorrow!).

Meanwhile, we'll continue with more fun goodies to share with you. Today, we're introducing 2 fantastic sets, Let's Flamingale and Tropic Like Its Hot. 

Here's my 1st card usinng Let's Flamingale set.

I really love the way SPD do this set, the way the flamingo layered. And, you have some option whether you want the flaming to stand on both feet or just on 1 foot. For this card, I used watercolor cardstock and simply brushed some blue color and then layered it with some sandy color on the bottom to ground the flamingo. The rest of the images I colored with Copic.

For my next card, I used the SugarCut Lantern (this lantern die is the coolest!!) and mix it with Let's Flamingale and Tropic Like Its Hot. There's just something about lantern decorating that I love.

Who says lantern is just for camping, right?? You could use this lantern to ground all kind of image. To me somehow it makes sense. :)

The SPD team has created some fun projects using today's products. Please stop by SugarPea Design blog and my teammates blog and of course, we would love for you to leave comment along the way. With each comment, you get extra chance to win today's giveaway. Good luck and thank you for stopping by here.
