Just For Fun

Hi friends. This year, I definitely been making more cards for fun and not for assignment. I am making a conscious effort to use sets that I bought but haven't use or rarely use. Considering how much I spent in crafting goodies, I feel like I should actually us them instead of just collecting them. Hah!!

Today I want to share a few cards. For this first card, am using The Greetery Leaves All Around stencil with sentiment from Verve Stamps (they closed their door a few years ago, but they used to be one of my favorite company). I love Irish Blessings sentiment. For me they're just such a nice wishes to send or to say to your loved ones.

For the next two cards,  I used Pinkfresh Studios Berries & Blossoms set and again sentiment from Verve Stamps set. This sentiment set is part of my must keep for as long as possible. :)

I have shared the last 2 cards on my Instagram, but then I realized I haven't share much cards on my blog, so might as well post them here as well. I hope you enjoy these cards and my hope is somehow, some way in my little way I can help inspire you to keep creating. Thanks for stopping by here. Till next time.

Spellbinders' March Stitched Die

Hi there creative peeps. Happy March. I want to pop in today to share my Spellbinders' March Stitching Die Club card. Spellbinders has lots of kits to choose from, so you have plenty of options. This month's stitched die kit is beautiful and can be used for so many occasions. From birthday to just thinking of you or on my case I think this be great for my niece who's been studying hard to pass her exams and I just want to let her know I am proud of her.

As a book lover myself, this set reminds me so much of the beauty of real books. Not the digital kind. I love digital book, but there's something about touching those pages. Anyway this card is pretty straight forward. Die cut the pieces, add the stitching and then simply arrange all the pieces. Finish with sentiment from Always and Forever Sentiment Strips Press Plate.

And, I chose the dark background to make the pastel colors of the book, the teacup and the flowers popped. I hope you enjoy today's inspiration and as always may something good happen to you today that make you smile and fill you heart with gratitude.

Monster & Dinosaur

It's been a long while since I play with fun, cute monster stuff. When I saw these monsters from Spellbinders, I knew I need to have them. I mean they're ridiculously cute! Here are some of the cards I made. The first 2 cards are using the Dancin' Birthday Monster Etched Dies set.

And, the best part? Their legs can swing side to side. There's little opening on top of the legs where I can put a small piece of foam adhesive (which hidden behind the monster body) and since there's no adhesive on the leg, the legs can move freely around the foam adhesive.

I just love how they're turned out. Like candy cute monster. The color reminds me of cotton candy. Hah!

For the next batch, I am showcasing Birthday Dinosaur Etched Dies. I think this would make such cute birthday cards for kids.

To add a bit more festivities, I decided to use rainbow hot foil for the sentiment.

I hope you enjoy today's cards. Wherever you are I wish that may today something good happen to you that makes you smile.

Thank You Pineapple
