Updates and a Card

Hi everyone! I missed you and the blogging world lately! :) Just g ive you a bit of an update, I've been having migraines for a few days now and only got better yesterday. The change of weather here in Sydney triggered that and when it hits me, my productivity mode is at its lowest. :( Plus the fact that we're also a bit busy with our kids's school stuffs and all, so yeah, I hope you understand about not posting regularly. Once things run smoothly, I will be posting more often. :)

Anyways, I've actually done 2 cards but wasn't able to take photo of the other card. Our Pastor's daughter requested me to make her a birthday card for her friend. It was just a quick and easy card and handed it over to her last night. Only to realised when we got home that I haven't even taken a photo of it!!! Grrrrr!!

Here's the other card that I was able to finish this week (see how I struggled to make cards because of my migraine -- only 2 for this week?!)

I bet you've seen her before on my previous post. :) This one is for InStyle Stamps' DT call. I coloured SuzieQ with my favourite medium, Prismacolor pencils! I also did some sponging around the image and with the sentiment cs. This is the first time I used my Basic Grey Bittersweet paper pad! They are so yummmyyyy I tell you! I really like the combination of browns and pinks so this one's for me. :) I finished off the card by putting a ribbon and a big button and dew drops as well.
InStyle Stamps will be starting sneak peeks this Sunday so don't forget to visit the ISS blog so you can be one of the "first few" to see them!
Tomorrow we will be celebrating the 7th year anniversary of our church. I'm part of the Music Ministry (as I've mentioned before) so last night we had a short practice for our praise and worship. This will be very exciting as we invited some guests/ friends to celebrate with us. May God continue to bless our church with more fruitful years in the future.
I will be posting more in the next few days and I really have to do a lot of catching up! Thanks for visiting my blog. :)
Have a blessed day!

Howdy everyone?!! I've been having migraine attacks the last 2days and it's ohhhh so debilitating! I wanna do a lot of things but I just can't 'coz it won't give me a chance to focus on's really painful. :(

Anyways, this afternoon when I saw the TLC post for this week, I kinda feel challenged. I was having a migraine but I was able to join this "rubber bands stamping" technique. I was so excited that I forgot I was having migraine, lol! I used my untouched "Versafine Spanish Moss" ink with the rubber bands and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder. I then sponged different colours here and there (I used Versacolor Bisque, SU! Regal Rose & Soft Sky). I stamped the sentiment on Whisper White but found it too plain without anything on it so I decided to use the same technique that I did with the background.

And what image is more fitting on this one?? Yeah, it's Roxy from InStyle Stamps! I stamped Roxy on Whisper White using Versafine Onyx Black and embossed her in clear ep. I coloured her with my Bic Mark-It! markers (I'm revisiting my other colouring mediums, lol!) and Copic Markers as well.

I cut Roxy out and boy, I had a hard time cutting the inside area of her arms. I used a pair of scissors for the outer part and crafter's knife for her arms. Did I do well on cutting those intricate parts? lol! I then used pop dots to give her dimension and that's it!
Here's my finished card:

Try this rubber bands technique and I'm sure you'll have fun in the process! Until next post.

May God bless us all!
