Bright and Cheery Happy Birthday card

Happy New Year and Happy February everyone!  I know my last post has been almost 9 months ago and I feel so guilty for somehow neglecting this craft blog of mine knowing I have followers like you who like to see what's new in my blogging world.  I have to be honest that I've been so slack in creating cards for 9 months (almost, lol!) but I feel so blessed in many ways as I've come to know our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ more and hearing from Him and obeying what He's telling me to do. And one of those was when we went home to Philippines for 3 weeks last Sept-Oct 2013.  We went home for the purpose of sharing God's word and the wonderful things that He's done and doing in my life and my family's as well! So yeah, even if I wasn't productive on the craft side, I could say, I've been productive in harvesting souls for God's Kingdom during my absence. And I give God all the glory for it!
Moving on to my card, good thing I still know how to use the Copic markers. LOL! Here's a previously stamped Tilda (I've received during one of my RAKs before) which I used for a birthday card.  Isn't she gorgeous!

Here's a closer shot:

I used my Samsung Galaxy S3 in taking these photos. I hope they look good on your screen though. :)

Until next post. God bless us all!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you're having a lovely day at your side of the world.  We're currently having a sunny but cold 18 degrees weather at the moment and I've just finished doing my laundry so, here I am now, posting the cards that I've made for my friends who gave birth recently.  

It's been months since I've made a card that's why I really made an effort to make my creative juices flow again by making these cute baby cards.  I finally was able to use the  onesie die from MFT and the baby specialty designer paper from DCWV.  I really enjoyed making these cards! Who wouldn't?

Thanks for looking and hope to see you visit again on my next post.

God bless us all!

HAPPY WEDNESDAY EVERYONE! Yay! It feels good to be posting/blogging again.  I'm sorry for my very long absence.  I really had lots of things to attend to and creating cards is just on the bottom of my list. Sometimes there are things that really needed much attention.  But I'm happy that once in a while I can still create. Like this one.
This is also a late post as I've made this card last month.  A young man from our church youth asked me to make a card for her sister's 16th birthday.  He told me that the theme is "vintage" and so I came up with this. 

I want it to be really personal so I looked up for her photo on our gallery (pc) and found this photo of her with another churchmate of ours.  I just then decided to crop it, edited it to make it vintage-looking and did some inking on the photo itself until I got my desired vintage look.

I used a paper from my K&Company pad, Bazzil cs, Spellbinder dies, Justrite Stampers font, flowers and pearls!  I'm happy it looked vintage! :)

Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of your day.

God bless!

Good afternoon from Sydney, Australia! Hope all is well at your side of the world.  Just want to share with you a baby dress card that I made last weekend for a christening ---- my FIRST!

I really had a blast creating this cute dress. Since my kids are all boys, I got so really excited with this! I got the template from Tempting Templates, printed it, traced it and cut it using a pair of scissors.   I used a vellum on top of the Basic Grey dp to mimic a lace/tulle overlay. Then I decided to add glitters on the sleeves and onto the vellum.

I didn't do any stamping here except for the name of the baby wherein I used my Justrite Stampers font.

Thanks so much for looking and God bless us all!

Hi everyone! Just a short post to share with you the latest card that I made.  This is for Splitcoaststampers' CAS185 challenge: Summer Treat!  

As I've mentioned before, I recently organized and cleaned-up my craft area. Hence in this card, I used the scraps/off cuts that I found from my stash.

CAS185 Summer Treat
The image is from Hero Arts Cupcake stamp set, stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Copic markers.  The dp's are from DCWV and K&Company. I used Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter to create a sugary look on the cucpcake. Yum! So sweet!

Thanks for looking and have a blessed day!

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Wow! It's been 5 months and a day since I last posted here! I can't believe it!  I've been off the blogland that long?  Well, I don't really know what happened! LOL! It's just that I felt I didn't have the energy and the inspiration to create a card.  My mojo went away and didn't come back for months.  My craft area is inside my son's room and for the past 5 months, I didn't touch anything there.  My table was so messy and was made as a temporary area for our folded clothes and other stuffs.  I still did online shopping for crafting supplies (thinking it would somehow kickstart my mojo), but when my orders arrived, still I didn't have the urge to create. :(  Not until yesterday when I decided to do some cleaning and de-cluttering on my craft area and while doing so, I realized how much I've neglected my "hobby".  So after cleaning the mess and organizing stuffs, I decided to create a card.

At first I didn't care about the theme of the card that I was about to make. All I wanted was to make a card. Period.  But while I was organizing my new supplies, I saw this stamp set given to my by my cousin Joan from USA.  I thought, well, I might as well start with a simple card and the best way to do it is to make a CAS card. No layering, not too much embellishments ---- just white on white. And this CAS Christmas card was created. :)

Btw, the stamp set is called Cool Christmas by Inkadinkado.

Thank you so much for reading my post and to all my followers who sticked with me (and my blog) regardless of my long absence ---- THANKS HEAPS!

Have a blessed day!

Another Baby Card

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Here's another baby card that I made. My image this time is a pair of booties but from the same stamp set "Baby Bundle" by Clear Dollar Stamps.  The dp that I used here is from DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby Girl.

I stamped the booties twice then cut the 2nd one and adhered it with pop dots for dimension.  I decided not to stamp a sentiment anymore since the dp is full of words for a baby. :)

Here's another shot:

This is just pretty simple but I like its vibrant colour! I finished it off with a satin polka dot ribbon.

Thanks for looking and have a lovely day!

God bless.
