Bugs & Kisses

Hello my crafty friends, I am back with a small Valentine's Day note card.  I am actually making many of these with variety of colours for my daughter's class mates.  Today I am only showing the blue combo (for the boys) here!  I will post the rest on Instagram when they are all done!

The image and the sentiment are from the Mini Chompy stamp from Your Next Stamp.  
The polaroid frame is from My Favourite Things' exclusive Precious Polaroids die set.  
The pattern paper is from American Girls.  
The arrow paper clip is from Ikea.  
The pretty envelop and the sentiment were made using Concord & 9th's Love Notes Bundle.  
The image was coloured using Copic Markers.  

That's it!

Thank you for stopping by and have an awesome day :)

A Winter Birthday Card

Hello my crafty friends, I am back with a winter birthday card this week.  As you can see, I have toned down my colours a lot.  I am liking this clean and eye soothing colours scheme :)

The image is from Holiday Owl from Your Next Stamp.  It was stamped on a neenah solar white card stock using Memento black ink.  The image was then coloured using Copic Sketch Markers.  

The sentiment is from Waddle - Snow Fun from Your Next Stamp.  Since I don't want any black dots on the card, the sentiment was first stamped with black ink and then heat embossed using clear embossing powder.  

I also used Clear Wink of Stella on the owl image and a white gel pen to add the snow on the image and the sentiment.

Although I said I have toned down my colour choices, as you can see at the bottom of this post, I am still using a lots of Copic Markers!

I have listed all the products I used below.  Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will have a creative and productive week!

A Flowery Card for a Friend

Hello my crafty friends.  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a fantastic New Year :)

Today I am back with a flowery card.  I stamped MFT's flower stamps on a piece of watercolour card stock using Ranger's Archival black ink.  The flowers pattern were watercolored on the negative space with green and aqua, and orange and yellow for the centre of the flowers.  

On a white card stock, I die cut the "windows" using MFT's die.  I then embossed it with We R Memory Keepers' embossing folder.  I also splashed the green and the aqua colours I used for the flower pattern on the embossed white card panel.  

The sentiment and the black ink are from Hero Arts.  However, the stamp set for the sentiment is already retired but I was able to find it on  I also used the Misti to help stamping on an embossed surface.  I finished off the card by adhering the embossed panel to the flower pattern pattern panel using foam adhesive.  The whole thing was then adhered to the card base.

Products used are listed below.  Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a fun crafting.
