Happy Saturday everyone!! Wohoo! I just can't believe how quick the time flies! Just a couple of sleeps more and it's already December!!! And I'm so looking forward for our holiday in the Philippines as we can get to see our family and relatives (and friends. of course!) back home!! We'll celebrate Christmas and New Year there! YAY!! How's that?!!!

Anyways, let me share you some cards that I made lately. I have received my Whiff of Joy stamps from Bec few days ago and Charlotte is so gorgeous that I couldn't help but ink her straight away and use her on these cards!

The first card is a Christmas card but I used the colours from the recent CC246 challenge.

The next one is very Christmasy and I used the Out of the Box technique here. (Charlotte's hair passing outside the frame). This challenge is from TLC247 challenge last week. (talking about being late here, lol!)

That's it for now and I'll try to post more later after doing my Saturday chores! Hubby's home early today so that means "badminton" for the family later! Wohoo!!
God bless us all!

CC246 Be My Friend

Hi everyone! I was able to play tonight for this week's Colour Combo challenge over SCS. This is CC246 wherein you are to combine SU! Old Olive, Pretty in Pink and Bermuda Bay. I don't have the latter colour but I was able to use an alternative with Core'dinations Bermuda which I think is close enough with the Bermuda Bay.

My card is 5.5"x5.5" in size. I started with the white base, then the Bermuda (Core'dinations) and then with thise lovely plaid dp from K&Company Classic K Charlotte paper pad which I purchased from Windsor Cottage Botanicals.

The horizontal panels of Bermuda and Pretty in Pink were punched using Fiskars All A-Fleur embunch but the Pretty in Pink was Cuttlebug-embossed first with Divine Swirl then embunched afterwards. I don't have anything on my mind for the lay out so I went for a simple one. Image is from Darkroom Door and sentiment is from Jemac stamps. Both were stamped with Old Olive and sponged around it with Versacolor Pink Petals. The lovely pearl slider/buckle is from BizzyBecs which was made by the owner herself, Bec! Thanks Bec, they're really lovely. Btw, I sprayed Glimmer Mist pearl to the image panel but the camera just really couldn't capture the glimmer on the paper.

Good morning and happy Wednesday! (it's 1250am, Sydney time)

God bless us all!

CAS42 Sponging with Butterflies

Yay!! This week's set CAS challenge over SCS is a simple technique called "sponging" which happens to be one of my favs! That's why as soon as I saw the post, I didn't waste anytime and made my contribution to it straight away. :)

This sponging technique is actually a reverse masking. I'm so into the challenge but I was lost at first and didn't know where to start. I bet you also have days like this. So, I flipped onto my stamped images and stamps (which I organised on a 3-ring binder) and saw these cute butterflies from Darkroom Door Wildflower set. Okay problem solved. I did the sponging first (using the negative side of the Labels 1 die cut as the mask), stamped the butterflies, coloured the biggest of them all, stamped the sentiment then finished off with 3 layers of assorted flowers with a Basic Grey pearl on the centre. Quick, clean and simple.

What do you think?

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!

Happy Monday everyone! Now I can finally share with you this Thank You card I made the other night and the altered tin I've finished yesterday. I didn't post it not until the recipient receives and sees it IRL (so as not to spoil the suprise). I'm so glad she liked the stuffs when I handed those to her yesterday! :)

I made this "Thank You" card for her as she recently altered my 2 new jeans the past few weeks. Just a simple token of thanks for her time and effort. :)

And to thank her more, I altered this Cadbury Drinking Chocolate can for her to use as pen holder.

I really like this colour combo. It's so me (talking about brown!). The cute and glittery dp is from DCWV Sweet Stack, the yellowish one is Bazzill and the brown cs is...from my stash. :)
Actually these are mostly left-overs from a previous card but just can't post it because I still have yet to let the recipient receive it first! (again heheh) It's a birthday card for my sister so I have to wait 'til the postie delivers it to her.
This is all for now! Hope you'll have a blessed start of the week!
Hugs to all!
