Quick Birthday Card

Hi everyone! This is just a quick post as I'm a bit tired and sore from playing badminton with hubby! :) But I'm glad as we're doing this regularly since Monday...and it's fun because our two kids are playing with us as well.

My SIL asked me to make a birthday card this morning and so I really had to rush a bit as I was also doing some cards to be delivered on Sunday.

I used some papers from my stash and this lovely dp is from K&Company Wild Raspberry pad. I embossed a pink cs for the horizontal panel, stamped my sentiment onto white cs, cut with Circle Nesties, sponged and then matted onto Petite Scalloped Circle die cut. Finished off the card with the smallest Kaiser pearls Plum on four corners of the card and a small Prima flower with a Kaiser pearl Lemon at the centre. Quick and easy!!

Okay, off to prepare for our Bible study tonight. Thanks for the visit and may our good Lord bless you always.

Roses on Paper Challenge #24

Good morning fellow stampers! Well this is my very first Roses on Paper Challenge card, for the record. :) I've seen this challenge upon visiting a fellow stamper's blog. And what a perfect timing as I've just finished a Christmas card using Tilda (by Magnolia) and it qualifies on the said challenge (to make a card with Christmas theme)! Yay!

Here's my card:

This lovely dsp is from My Mind's Eye. Very non-traditional colours yet gorgeous to look at and those were the colours that I used to colour in my Tilda (which is a RAK image I received from an online pal). Sentiment is from CC Designs AmyR Christmas Verses stamp set. I finished off the card with these cute snowflakes created from Spellbinders' Create a Flake 1, sponged with Soft Sky ink then sparkled with Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter.

Thanks for visiting and let me know what you think with my first Roses on Paper challenge card. ;-)

Have a blessed day!

Colourful Christmas Take TWO!

Good morning to you all! Today is a very lovely day here in Sydney where I am. Ths sun is shining bright but the the weather is just fine, not too hot. ;)

I have a take two on my colourful christmas card which you can be seen on this post. The first card was seen by a friend and asked me to make her a card using the same colours and materials. Well, honestly, I don't or I never made two cards completely the same in my entire stamping career! LOL! I don't know, I'm not just so comfortable doing that. So, since it's a request, I had no choice but do it. :) I used the same materials but of course made some "twists" to make it somehow different from the first one.

Here it is:

And a closer shot...

As you can see, I used a different lay out here and a different sentiment. And this is more sparkly than the first one I think. This lovely dp is from My Mind's Eye Colourful Christmas "Falling Flakes". Gorgeous colours! Too bad I only had a page of it. (Note to self: buy papers in twos next time!)
Thanks for the visit and I'll see you on my next post. Off to stamp now.
God bless us all.

Thank You Card

Happy Monday everyone!! Thank God for another Monday! And right now, I wanted to share with you a "Thank You"card that I made as requested by a churchmate. He asked me to make this card to be given to a couple who will get married on Dec and his services (he covers weddings and such on videos) were chosen and so he wanted to say "thanks" on a card. I borrowed the invitation from, him so I could somehow have an idea with regards to the colours or theme used.

Soon as I saw this invitation, I told myself to get the same materials that they used and just made a twist for the thank you card.

Here's the card that I made:

What do you think???!! I was actually about to do a gatefold but changed my mind and used a traditional style instead. I also did not do paper tearing but used a pearlescent cream cs to complement the paper used. There's no ribbon but I did dry embossing using my Cuttlebug Textile folder which I believe complemented the specialty paper. :)
Thanks so much for the visit and let me know what you think by leaving a comment or two when you get the chance.
Have a blessed week!!
