11/24/17 - Happy Thanksgiving

Today I am sharing a quick Thankful / Thanksgiving card I made using Swirly Bird Bundle that it's hard to believe that you can create a pumpkin card with it! This is such a fun bundle to have because along with the framelits, you can create many type of themes and occasion cards with it. Here, I cut out the circles and use them as pumpkins by adding some leafs to add to the top, added and quick sentiment and you have yourself a Fall/Thanksgiving related thank you card! I hope you like this quick card I am sharing today and have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families and friends!

More Christmas Cards

Today I am sharing another quick and easy Christmas cards, I think by now I should be in Indiana and waiting to celebrate holidays with my in-laws. This card is combining retiring items with current SU Christmas offering. The washi tape is retired and I just lay them down to create background. Then I stamp the tree from Watercolor Christmas Stamp Set and I colored it in using the Wink A Stella - Gold color. Add a gold glitter star that I punched out and voila, a quick and easy card!! Did you noticed that I put the piece on another piece of Whisper White and round the corner, kind of neat eh?? Hope you like the card I am sharing today and enjoy your holiday!!

11/20/17 - #SSINKTC49: Eclipse Technique

Today at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration, we are sharing Eclipse Card! This is such a trendy card to make now and it's actually very easy and fun to do so as well. I found a great tutorial HERE so you can try it and join us and share your creation with us!! Since I don't have the word / number dies, I've decided to use the Daisy Punch for this technique and I think the result is still very stunning!!

I started with the DSP and then punch out the flowers 3 times on the basic black cardstock, as well as from the DSP & layer them together to give it some heights, this is actually the technique itself!! I put the layer of DSP on the basic black cardstock, finished it off with baker's twine and a cute sentiment and voila, an Eclipse card is done! I hope you like my creation today and be sure to check out everyone's card and join this challenge.

11/17/17- Get Well

Today at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration, we are creating Get Well cards!!! These type of cards are pretty easy to make in my opinion as sometimes you can just leave the sentiment blank and let the card shine and do its work, or any type of flower cards will do - it's like bring the flowers to someone's home when you visit them!

I decided to use up some DSP that I recently purchared from a share and went to town with it. I used the most basic and simple layout and have the flowers to be the main focal point of the card in the center. Most of the colors I used here are from the 2017-2019 in colors. To finish off the cards, I added the clear Wink A Stella on the flowers and a bow that I made from the linen thread. I hope you enjoy this card today and be sure to check out everyone's creation!!

11/10/17 Christmas Using Non-Christmas Stamps

Today at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration, we are sharing Christmas Card using non-Christmas stamp set!! When I saw this them, right away I wanted to use Lovely As a Tree!! This stamp set has been around FOREVER and the images are just so versatile that you can use it for masculine birthday card, sympathy card, thinking of you well as Christmas card!!

I used the painter's tape to tape up a section of the whisper white cardstock so I can sponge Pacific Point in the middle section to create a scene! Then I pulled out the trees images from Lovely As the Tree and used Memento black and stamp it in the middle. To add some fun textures, I used the Versamark on some of the tree branches and added Dazzling Diamond on it - although it is hard to see in the picture. To finish the card off, I used some thread from Burlap Ribbon and created a bow.

I hope you enjoy this card I am sharing today, be sure to check out everyone's creation and thank you for stopping by!!

I wanted to do some coloring with our Stampin' Up Watercolor Pencils since I haven't played with it for awhile, I though it will be great for the challenges. I decided to go with Remarkable You stamp set for the bold, colorable image. The sentiment and the background stamping is from Oh So Eclectic by doing the tone on tone on Sweet Sugarplum cardstock. The flower itself is Calypso Coral and I used the Blender Pen to blend in the colors. The only addition color I pull in is Basic Black for layering.

She joined us earlier this year for SSINK design team and it's been awesome having her on the team and seeing her creation!! I've decided to case one of her Christmas Card she posted back in August 2017 for some inspiration of my Coffee card!

Instead of making it a truly coffee card, I've decided to make it into a FABULOUS card! I used the sentiments from another stamp set and create this fall feeling card. In addition, can you see the few glitter enamels dots I used? I hope you enjoy the card today and be sure to check out everyone's creation!

10/20/17: Fabulous Flowers!

Today at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration, we are doing Flowers Card!! I am finally feeling good enough to make a card at home after giving birth to my first born son - Hunter on 10/5/17. I haven't stepped outside much yet except going to the doctor since my parent are here to take care of me postpartum per our Taiwanese tradition so mostly I am just staying indoor. Making this card makes me feel a lot better and makes me miss crafting even more!

I decided to use an oldie from the Annual Catalog called Flower Shop and the coordinating punch to start. I got the color combination from page 187 from the Fresh Florals DSP stack as well as using the DSP. The sentiments is from another set and I like how it turns out and can't wait to create more cards!! I hope you enjoy this card I am sharing today and be sure to check out everyone's creation!
