BIZZY BECS Design Team..and a Sugar Nellie Card

Yes!!! Another blessing! I was chosen to be part of Bizzy Becs Stamps Design Team!! How's that?? Bizzy Becs is an Australian online shop and Bec, the owner is coming up with her own line of stamps. You can take a peek of the soon-to-be-available stamps on Bizzy Becs blog. They're all very cute!! I will be making my first card for Bizzy Becs soon so watch out for it.

For the meantime, I have another card to share with you. This is Reflective by Sugar Nellie which I took the colours from SCS CC200 colour combo challenge (Garden Green, Brilliant Blue and Pumpkin Pie). Here's my card (sorry if the photo wasn't taken at it's best..I ran out of batt after this shot!)

Have you noticed the lovely borders? Yes, it's Martha Stewart's Doily Lace Punch. We don't have it here in Australia but a very kind-hearted lady from Splitcoaststampers (her name is Kay) bought one for me from where she is (she's in US). Thanks Kay! The border is really gorgeous IRL. Before punching my borders, I embossed my cs first with my Cuttlebug Divine Swirl embossing folder. They look good together, don't they? My Sugar Nellie is a RAK from Bec. :-)

I coloured my image using Prismacolor Pencils and odourless solvent. I actually didn't have the Prisma matched to SU! Pumpkin Pie but then I remembered I purchased a Dew Drop Pumpkin Spice inkpad from Bizzy Becs so I used that one with my blender pen. I also ran out of my Garden Green cs so I put out my Bazzills and good thing, I found one that closely matches SU! Garden Green. I sponged the edges of the image using the Pumpkin Spice ink as per my hubby's comment. :) He's my number one critic and I really love him for that.

Hope I inspired you with my 2 cards today. Thanks for always visiting and reading my blog. I can't believe I already have more than 6k hits!

Thanks everyone! May God bless you always.


Scrub the Stress Away - In Style!

Hello everyone! Yes, its official! You can head on to InStyle Stamps blog and see my name as one of their January Guest Designers! (insert an icon jumping up and down) I feel happy to be part of ISS team and I'm so looking forward to make more cards and projects using their gorgeous stamps.

Enough with the jumping for now(lol), I want to share with you the 2nd card I made for InStyle Stamps. This lovely diva is no other than Sheree! Look how she's enjoying her bubble bath! This image is perfect for a "feel stress-free" cards for our girlfriends (and for ours as well, lol!).

I coloured Sheree with Prismacolor Premier pencils using Odourless solvent and blending stumps. My background paper is form Basic Grey (Archaic) and cs were SU! Whisper White, Sage Shadow and the lovely Rose Red. I finished it off with Prima flowers and a dew drop at the center. Sentiment is computer-generated. I embossed the Rose Red cs with my Bubbles embossing folder (Cuttlebug) which I believed complemented the bubbles Sheree is making. :)
So you've seen Roxy and Sheree so far. You can see the rest of the lovely divas when you visit InStyle Stamps blog. Join our challenges as well and to see more of the lovely DT's work. These stamps are available to purchase online at
Have a blessed day!

Featured Stamper Challenge - My FIRST!

Hi everyone! It's my first time to join the Featured Stamper challenge over SCS and I found it so exciting! JulieHRR is our Featured Stamper of the week and you can view her wondeful gallery here. I chose to CASE her "You're my Cuppa" card and I just changed the dp, the ribbon and the image but maintained the lay out.
Here's my card:

And a bit of a closer shot..(for you to see the glimmery heart)

Thanks for looking and will post more later. ;-)
