Sun Always Shine

Eeeps, have you seen the latest collection from Simon Says Stamp? Lots of fabulous sets. I was tickled pink when I got this Cloudy Skies stamp & dies set.

When I saw this set, I thought this would be perfect to pair it with a watercolor background. I'd like to have some shimmer on my background, so I used my Twinkling H20 for this. I only used them a couple times before. Twinkling H2Os Watercolors has a blend of mica and other minerals in it that transmit refractive light and color, similar to light rays in a crystal. For my card I used the color Snapdragon, Hot Cinnamon for the sky and Sunflower for the sun. 

I need to play some more with this cloud set for sure. Well, that's it from me for today. See y'all later!

Birthdays Are The Best

Hi peeps. Just want to pop in to share this mini card that I made just for fun. I have several sets that are still brand spanking new and of course, I cannot just let them sit there untouched, right?

For this card, I used Taylored Expressions Balloon Buddies stamp & dies set & their Rolling Clouds dies. I love that all the animals on this set have their tongue sticking out. It makes them look cuter & sillier in my opinion. :)

Well, short one, peeps. Hah... My mind is blank, I have no stories to tell, so that's it. ;)

Hello Shaker Card

When I saw My Favorite Things sketch challenge 267, I knew right away that I want to play along. I have to admit, I miss making card for MFT weekly challenge. So, I am happy that I can join this week.

Here's the fun sketch.

And, here's my card:

In place of the tag, I used the Boutique Window and embellish it with flowers from Mini Modern Bloom set  to create this fun shaker card. The sentiment is from Label Maker Sentiment set.

I always find it satisfying when an idea I have in my head translate into card just the way I imagined it.

Well, short post for today. I have to get ready since this afternoon I am teaching a Valentine card making class tonight for a special needs group. Am excited & nervous at the same time. I used to teach scrapbooking & card making class on weekly basis, but that was long time ago. And, this is the 1st time I'll be working with a special needs group. I think it'll be fun. Wish me luck!

Love You More Than Cupcakes

 Today, I want to share a card that I made purely just for fun. No challenges, no assignnet. Simply creating for the purpose of creating, playing with sweet image & coloring.

I have several cupcake stamps & dies, but I think this Sweet Tooth Tower stamp & dies set from Taylored Expressions is my favorite. The size is just perfect.

Such pretty rows of cupcakes, aren't they? I had so much fun coloring the cupcakes and the font combo on the sentiment... totally LOVE it! I am pretty happy with the way this card turned out.  And, it's fun playing simply for fun.

Oh, since yesterday was Chinese New Year, look at this sweet family pic my family sent me. I FaceTime with all of them and to hear my niece saying the New Year's greeting just made my day. Doesn't she looks so cute with her red Chinese dress?

To all my family and friends who celebrate it, I want to wish you all a very happy & prosperous Chinese New Year. May this Monkey Year brings you joy, prosperity & good luck!

Sending Hugs Floral Wreath

Hi peeps! I managed to finish a card this past weekend. I've been neglecting my Papertrey Ink stamps lately, so when I saw their birthday celebration challenge, I thought this is a perfect time to show my PTI sets some love.

I am playing along with their 1st day challenge to create a card based on one of the color recipe. Since, I am a fan of Maile Belle's work it's no surprise that I was drawn to her color combo.

And, here's my card based on the color combo using the Twig Wreath & Big Hugs set.

I love the way this card turned out. It's simple & sweet. Have to admit, I wouldn't have thought of using this color combo for the wreath on my own. My mojo been  a bit scattered lately, so it's nice when you have inspiration to work from.

Hoping to play with more of PTI birthday challenge. Crossing my fingers. :)
