With love/Case this sketch


I'm just posting a card here I made for this week's challenge at CASE this Sketch.

So here is my card:

And a closer look:
Not a lot to say about how I made the card, it's pretty simply.  The jar and hearts stamps are from amazing Love Jar set by Hero Arts.  I stamped some hearts on some polka dots red paper, some textured red cardstock, also just a few in black ink so it's more interesting.  And finished off by adding some dash lines around the card and a couple of the hearts.
Anyway, hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.  Ha, perfect timing, my baby just woke up!

Happy Birthday card/ATCAS spring

Hello everyone!

Just posting a card here for this week's challenge at Addicted to CAS.

So here is what I've come up with:

I made a birthday card with a bookmark on it, and then just used a paper clip to keep them together.  I half embossed the card base, and gently dabbed some green ink onto the embossed area.  For the bookmark, I stamped the flowers in different shades of green, and the bird, I added some music notes at the background, but not sure if that was necessery.

Anyway, hope you like it, and thank you for stopping by.

Ps, after I'd done the spring one, I thought it would be fun to make other seasons, so here just posting a photo to show you what I've done.  I call it "Birthdays all year around".  These cards below are not for the challenge.


Thank you / CFC95 no stamping

Hi everyone!

I'm posting a card here that I made for Cas-ual Fridays this week's challenge.

CFC95: Create a Clean And Simple project that doesn't use stamps.
For me, this uesd to be a real challenge, because I used my stamps on almost all my cards.  My lovely hubby bought me a big shot for Christmas last year (Yay!) and I bought some dies for myself, so now I can use die-cut letters to form my sentiments!
So here is my card and a closer look:

Nothing more to say about the card, so simple.  Aren't these polka dots ribbons cute?
The alphabets die is from Tim Holtz, I believe it's called Vintage Market, I really like the font.  Ribbons are from American Crafts, and buttons are from We r memory keepers.
Hope you like the card, and thank you for stopping by!

Chipboard buttons card/Cas-ual Fridays challenge

Good morning everyone!

I have another card that I made for Cas-ual Fridays this week's challenge.

After the discovery of some chipboard buttons and flowers that I bought ages ago, I made a chipboard flower card which you can click here to see it.  And today I'm posting a card that I used some buttons.  Here is a photo of the card:
Here are some details: 

The stamp I used to create the lines is from a very old Hero Arts butterfly set, the bottom one.  I stamped it four times at the bottom of my card, I had to curve the line a little bit each time I stamped so it's more interesting, and added some chipboard buttons.  Then die-cut HI glued it on the card. 
Super easy to make.  Actually I made it on our kitchen table while feeding my son.  Multitasking!  You really don't need a lot of supplies to make a card like this.
Anyway, hope you like it, and thanks for stopping by.  Have a good day!

So very thankful for you/matching envelope

Hello again!

Believe or not, this is the forth post that I did today.  Phew!

Just posting a card here, I also stamped the envelope to match the card.

Hello Owl card

Good evening everyone!

Just posting a card here.
Here is a closer look:

This card is based on another card of mine, you can click here to see it.  I thought it was really cute to have the owl peeking through the circles and finally jumped out to say hello.

Hope you like it, and thanks for stopping by.

Hugs and Fishes/CTS Challenge

Good moring all!  Happy Monday!

Just posting a card for this week's CTS.  Yes, I know I'm very late.

So here is the sketch, very CAS, yet, there's so much you could do with it.  So here is my card based on the sketch.

Here is a closer look:
I made the card horizontal rather than vertical, and used a circle instead of a square, and another circle instead of the scallope edge.  I embossed the kraft cardstock, I thought the scale pattern would match the whole scene perfectly.  On the actual card base, I used distress ink in broken china, and added some water, then stamped the image in two different pattern paper and cut them out, then put them on foam adhesive along with the embossed card stock.  Lastly I added some dash lines to finish off the card so it looks more interesting.
Anyway, hope you like it, and thanks for stopping by.
Have a good day!

Punched flowers/Cas-ual Fridays Chipboard Challenge

Good morning everyone!  Hope you had a very good weekend.

Justing posting a card here that I made for Cas-ual Fridays this week's challenge.

I don't own a lot of chipboards, so I was going to duck this week's challenge.  Then yesterday when I was tidying my craft room, I found some lovely cute chipboard flowers and buttons - oh, that's just so me - I just have too much stuff and sometimes (most of the times actually), I don't remember what I have, and keep buying new things.
But anyway, I show you the photo of the card that I made and some photos of the details.  It's very easy and simple.

 Here are a couple of photos to show you the details.

This chipboard flower has 3 main colours -  pink, blue and green.  So I got some pink, green and blue pattern paper to match the flower.  I used 4 different flower punches to punch out some patterns and trimed the paper to different widths and lengths as well, so it looking a little bit more interesting. 
Anyway, hope you enjoy the card, and stay tuned, I have some more cards to post this week.
Thanks for stopping by.

Hello everyone!

Just posting another card here that I made for this week's ATCAS challenge.

So here is my card:


I embossed a piece of kraft card (measures 4.15''x5.5'') using my embossing plate, and cut out 3 circles.  The butterfly stamps are from Hero Arts, it's an old stamp set, but I still love it.  Then I stamped the sentiment on a piece of white card stock and cut a ribbon edge, and added 3 bottons to finish off.  I put the whole piece on some foam adhesive and adhered it on a white card stock.
Super easy and fun to do.

Here is a closer look of the circles:  

Hope you like it.  See you soon. xx

Thank you card with stamped background

Phew, this is my forth post today, can you believe that?  I only have time to do it when my baby's asleep.  So, now, while he's having a morning nap, I'm just posting something here and have a bit of time of my own.

Made this thank you card last night, I don't really like it.  But my husband thought it was nice.  Anyway, I just put them here, so you can tell me what you think.  Ok?

Hi there!

Just posting a card here.

I kept the card clean and simple.  Only used three buttons to add some interests.  I then stamped the sentiment.  I was going to say "high there!" or "what's UP?"  Then I thought maybe that style is not everyone's cup of tea.  So I just stick to my original plan, and have it say "hi there!"  Should have used the capital H.  Oh well, never mind. :)
