SNOWMAN -Take TWO on SC205

Good Afternoon everyone! Yes, it's almost 1pm now here in Australia and I haven't eaten my lunch yet. lol! (but I definitely will after this post) I made another card for the SC205 sketch challenge. I'm enjoying the sketch that I wanna do more cards with it. Anyway, here's my other card...

I used Taken with Teal and Gable green this time. It surprised me to know how good these two colours look together. I did partial embossing here (well yeah, first time after awhile) and it's a success! ;-) I used the Snowflakes and Swiss dots embossing folder and scored some lines between the gaps. There was no stamping done here, just purely Cuttlebugging.

Here are the stuffs that I used for your reference:

SU! Whisper White, Gable Green, Taken with Teal
Cuttlebug Snowflakes & Swiss Dots embossing folder
Cuttlebug Snowman die
Scor-Pal, Icicles (stickles), white gel pen, rhinestones, pop dots

Oh, I'm starving now, gotta grab some lunch. See yah later.

Have a blessed day!


CHICKS RULE! {SC205 Sketch Challenge)

Howdy everyone?! It's half past 12am now here in Australia and I'm about to sleep but of course, I will post my latest card first so I can share something with you. Here's the sketch challenge for this week ver SCS:

And here's my answer to that:

This is my first card with the most layers. :) I took all the colours of the layers from my patterned cs which is from DCWV Nana's Nursery stack. I just got these stack last week and they're very gorgeous IRL with all its glitters and colours. I used the ff: cardstocks for this card:
SU! Whisper White, Regal Rose, So Saffron and DCWV Brights mat stack (for the green mat). I stamped the Studio G image with Regal Rose and coloured it with my Aquarelle and blender pen.

This is all for now and it's time for my much-needed sleep. I feel sleepy during the day these past few days.

Good night everyone and may God bless us all.


(now I have a close to my real one)

My FIRSTS: Whiff of Joy and Hanna Stamps

Blessings to all of you my blog readers and fellow bloggers. Hope everything's doing well with you and your families. I wasn't feeling well yesterday especially during afternoon and I really feel so blessed because eventhough my husband was tired from work, he took over my kitchen duties and prepared dinner for the family. He's really a blessing!

When I got a bit well, I managed to finished 3 cards (yes, 3 cards and I'm still a bit unwell lol!). I was able to inked up my FIRST Whiff of Joy stamp which I won on a blog candy I think, more than a month ago.

Here's Charlie and his dog on a card patterned after SC120 and CC172 challenges over SCS.

Here's another Charlie card I created using my DCWV Christmas stack as background. I purchased this stack last year, I think and has been my favorite eversince. (wishing I could use it on everyday cards lol!)

Oh, and have you noticed that I made a "snow scene" on these cards? Hahaha! Finally, I plunged into sponging and making a "scene" lol! But for now, it's just snow scene until I master it. ;-) I used my Soft Sky ink pad for sponging which I bought just last week. (well, I actually bought it for that reason..sponging and making snow and sky scenes).

The card below is just a simple card which I was able to make using my leftover cardstocks and supplies. This turned out to be simple but cute (IMO lol!) and a good way to use those leftovers so nothing would go wasted.

And of course, here's my other FIRST ..Hanna! I bought this more than 2mos ago (if I'm not mistaken). I just didn't know what happened why it took me so long to ink her up. Well, maybe I'm just waiting for the "right" timing..I believe this happens to you as well. Like, you have purchased a stamp or stamp set and wouldn't be using it for a couple of weeks or months until your Mojo tells you to use it on a certain project, right? I know, I'm not alone hehehe!

I coloured her with the colours on my background patterned paper (Dena Designs Christmas collection). I Cuttlebugged the bluish cs from DCWV mat stack and pop dotted the main image. See, I used the "snow scene" again?!!!

Thanks for looking and will post more later after I finished the rest of my chores.

God bless you!

Just a Quick Post (and a card for WT194 over SCS)

Hello there! This is just a very quick post as it's exactly 3AM here in Australia now. I made this card for the Ways to Use It challenge over SCS (WT194) and that is to make a Thanksgiving Card. I used the sentiment that my SBS 22 sister Kathy sent me (thanks Kathy!) and matted it on Always Artichoke cs. I also used the photo corners sent to me by Jesse (thanks Jesse!) which complemented the nestabilies scallopped mat. I embossed my So Saffron background with my Fiskars texture plates ran through my Cuttlebug. I really like these fiskars plates, good thing I put them all out of my cupboard and I'm making good use of them on my cards. I still "know" very well the plates sandwich eventhough it's been almost half a year since I really last used them.

Here's my card:

Thanks for looking and I'll see you next post leaving you with these wonderful words..

"Praise God from whom all the blessing flow,
Praise Him all creatures here below;
Praise Him above ye heavenly hosts,
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost."

Blessings to you all!
