Shabby Chic Lovely As A Tree

YES!!! I finally got hold of this lovely stamp set from Stampin' Up! - LOVELY AS A TREE. Wohooo!!!  I've been longing to have this stamp set for over a year now and much as I wanted to buy one for myself, I just couldn't convince myself to purchase as it's quite exxy for me. ;)  But God is really good, He made a way for me to be able to have it when someone I know made a craft clean-up sale and this set is included! I know and believe that this wasn't a chance or luck but God really made it happen.

And since I still have the "sahbby chic" hang-over from the last card that I made (CAS37 challenge), I then once again made another card with the same theme.  I did a lot of distressing here and limited my embellishment to just a vintage-looking ribbon which I think  I got from Bizzy Becs long ago.  The image was stamped with Versamagic Dew Drop "Wheat" and the lovely dsp is from K&Company Charlotte 12x12 pad.

Thanks for looking and may God bless you always!

And we just want to thank and praise God for a very blessed 6 years that He has given you.  Thank you for being so sweet to Mum, Dad and "Kaka" (Kuya Jared/brother).  Thank you because you have your way of teaching us how to be patient in the real sense of the word.  You and your brother are God's greatest blessings to me and your Daddy. Happy, happy 6th Birthday and I pray that God will bless you with more happy birthdays to come. We love you so much and God loves you much more than we do - always remember that.

CASEd, Distressed, Shabby Chic with Spotlight Technique

Wohoo!!! Happy Monday everyone! (doing a happy dance here)  You may ask why? Well, I may not be able to make a card for a week now BUT today I was able to make ONE card for FOUR challenges!! Yay!
[ETA: I'm entering this to a 5th challenge!! It's on Mark's Finest Papers Blog and the challenge is Spotlighting! :) ]

Here are the challenges:
WT270 - edge distresser
F4A12 - spotlight technique (my first ever!)
FS171 - in honour of Cathleen (aka CTORINA of SCS) as Featured Stamper for last week
CAS67- shabby chic-themed card

and here's my card:

The first three challenges were from last week which I wanted to play but missed and the CAS is for today, My image (from Jemac Stamps) was coloured with Copic markers (R85, R83, R81). Well, had a bit of mistake as I cut the image first before I coloured it so it's kinda hard to move around and colour as the paper is already too small to control. LOL! But I'm glad I was able to pull through. I distressed the edges of the dp from Basic Grey (sorry I forgot the range), the green cs that was cut with Labels Four and the embossed white cs and I used my first-ever Tim Holtz Distress Ink. Yay!! I know, I'm so well behind with this ink as almost all cardmakers are using distress inks nowadays. Btw, my sentiment is from Stampendous Happy Messages.

Here's a close-up of the image:

Thanks for the visit and hope to see you again on my next post!

Have a blessed day!
