Fun N' Crafty May 2017 Blog Hop - New Catalog Card

2017 Fun N Crafty Blog Hop

Welcome to Fun n’ Crafty Blog Hop for May 2017! This month's theme is New Catalog Card! I designed this card for a card swap for SSINK and it's so cute that I just have to share. The stamp set I used is called Tabs for Everything - this stamp set is actually meant for the new planner that SU is selling in the new catalog but I thought it would be cute to use it in a card and this is what I came up with. I picked a few cute images to stamp in and then added a Happy Birthday sentiment and voila, a cute birthday day is finished! This card is suitable for kids as those tiny images are just too adorable not to use.


Challenge Used: N/A
Stamp Set: Tabs for Everything
Colors: Old Olive, Tranquil Tide, Berry Burst, Crush Curry
Paper(s): Whisper White, Delightful Daisy DSP, Basic Black
Other Supplies: Basic Black Thick Twine, Wink A Stella, Glue Dots

05/17/17: Graduation/Congrats card

Today at Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration, we are doing sharing Graduation cards!! When I was in San Jose few weeks ago, mom asked me to make her a few Graduation cards and I was a bit worry since I don't really *own* any stamp sets that's related to graduation. As I went through my retiring stash, I found Celebrate Today and the coordinating Framelits to use. I decided to use the hot air balloon image to create some fun graduation cards and this is what I came up with. I love the 3D effects on the hot air balloon and I think the recipients will love it too. What do you think?

05/05/17: Friday Favorite: Retiring DSP

Today at Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration, we are doing Favorite Retiring DSP - and mine is Moroccan DSP on page 173. Ever since I first saw this suite at OnStage event, I fall in-love immediately with this paper. I love all the vibrant colors on this paper and they are suitable for both masculine and feminine cards, which is such a plus for me!  The card I am sharing today is the card we made at the Senior Living Center card class last month. The card focus on the Moroccan designer series paper and since it's double sided, you can pick the side you like and just simply display it on the front of the card. I added a little glitter butterfly and a ribbon for some interest, with a sentiments and voila, a card is made! Hope you like this card I am sharing today and be sure to check out everyone's creation!

banner-blog-hop-intro
Welcome to Fun n’ Crafty Blog Hop for April 2017! This month's theme is Mother's Day Card! As many of you already knew that Stampin' Up retiring list came out 2 weeks ago and I am just sad few of my stamp sets will be retiring so I am determined to use them as much as I can. For this card, I used the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies to cut out some cardstocks to create a garden theme and then used Crazy About You to create a sentiment for Happy Mother's Day. I also added the enamel dot and Wink A Stella in the middle of the two flowers to make it pop a little, with a layer of black cardstock, I think the whole card really looks awesome, what do you think?!
