Good afternoon from Sydney, Australia! Hope all is well at your side of the world.  Just want to share with you a baby dress card that I made last weekend for a christening ---- my FIRST!

I really had a blast creating this cute dress. Since my kids are all boys, I got so really excited with this! I got the template from Tempting Templates, printed it, traced it and cut it using a pair of scissors.   I used a vellum on top of the Basic Grey dp to mimic a lace/tulle overlay. Then I decided to add glitters on the sleeves and onto the vellum.

I didn't do any stamping here except for the name of the baby wherein I used my Justrite Stampers font.

Thanks so much for looking and God bless us all!

Hi everyone! Just a short post to share with you the latest card that I made.  This is for Splitcoaststampers' CAS185 challenge: Summer Treat!  

As I've mentioned before, I recently organized and cleaned-up my craft area. Hence in this card, I used the scraps/off cuts that I found from my stash.

CAS185 Summer Treat
The image is from Hero Arts Cupcake stamp set, stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Copic markers.  The dp's are from DCWV and K&Company. I used Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter to create a sugary look on the cucpcake. Yum! So sweet!

Thanks for looking and have a blessed day!

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Wow! It's been 5 months and a day since I last posted here! I can't believe it!  I've been off the blogland that long?  Well, I don't really know what happened! LOL! It's just that I felt I didn't have the energy and the inspiration to create a card.  My mojo went away and didn't come back for months.  My craft area is inside my son's room and for the past 5 months, I didn't touch anything there.  My table was so messy and was made as a temporary area for our folded clothes and other stuffs.  I still did online shopping for crafting supplies (thinking it would somehow kickstart my mojo), but when my orders arrived, still I didn't have the urge to create. :(  Not until yesterday when I decided to do some cleaning and de-cluttering on my craft area and while doing so, I realized how much I've neglected my "hobby".  So after cleaning the mess and organizing stuffs, I decided to create a card.

At first I didn't care about the theme of the card that I was about to make. All I wanted was to make a card. Period.  But while I was organizing my new supplies, I saw this stamp set given to my by my cousin Joan from USA.  I thought, well, I might as well start with a simple card and the best way to do it is to make a CAS card. No layering, not too much embellishments ---- just white on white. And this CAS Christmas card was created. :)

Btw, the stamp set is called Cool Christmas by Inkadinkado.

Thank you so much for reading my post and to all my followers who sticked with me (and my blog) regardless of my long absence ---- THANKS HEAPS!

Have a blessed day!

Another Baby Card

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Here's another baby card that I made. My image this time is a pair of booties but from the same stamp set "Baby Bundle" by Clear Dollar Stamps.  The dp that I used here is from DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby Girl.

I stamped the booties twice then cut the 2nd one and adhered it with pop dots for dimension.  I decided not to stamp a sentiment anymore since the dp is full of words for a baby. :)

Here's another shot:

This is just pretty simple but I like its vibrant colour! I finished it off with a satin polka dot ribbon.

Thanks for looking and have a lovely day!

God bless.

Wow! I just couldn't believe it that in 10 days time I will be celebrating my blogoversary! Which also means that I will be turning 4 years in the blogland! Yay! Praise God for this wonderful blessing! Although I admit I have been so slack in postings the past couple of months due to being busy around the house (cause I still believe that family comes first!) :) I'm still thankful that YOU, my dear followers, never get tired of visiting my blog and following me and leaving me inspiring comments. Actually, even if I don't get comments on my cards or postings, I'm still happy because I was able to share things that I enjoyed creating --- my cards!

The mere fact that my counter gets a bigger number each time only means that someone's taking time to visit my blog either by chance or by searching for something via Google, it doesn't matter really. I'm happy to know that someone spends time looking at my cards or projects and find inspiration from them. Thanks very much!

To all my followers and visitors, thank you very, very much! And as my way of saying thank you, I will come up with a BLOGOVERSARY CANDY as a small treat! Stay tuned for it.

Thanks once again and may God bless us all!

 Happy Tuesday everyone!  I hope you're having a productive day on your side of the world. :)  Just want to share with you a card (and another card) which I made for a friend who will be attending a baby shower this weekend.  I haven't done any baby shower card so this one's all new to me ---- it's my first! :)

I'm so happy how it turned out.  I find it soooo cute with it's colours and the clothespin.  The onesies is from Baby Bundle set by Clear Dollar stamps which I purchased more than a year ago and was only inked with this project.  I didn't have any idea that it will come out this gorgeous. (Yay for me! LOL!)  The clothespin/pegs are from a dollar shop near our place which I also bought months and months ago and was only used on this project.  I made the sentiment myself using Justrite Stampers Times New Roman Lowercase Font.  Inked it with Memento Tuxedo Black and stamped it onto a white cs and embossed the sentiment panel with Cuttlebug embossing folder. (I forgot how it's called but it's for embossing borders)
Here's aother shot:

My friend doesn't know the gender of her cousin's baby so I decided to use colours that's neutral for a baby boy or a baby girl.  The dp that I used is from DCWV Nana's Nursery (Boys).

Here's a closer shot:

And since the "baby stuffs" (dp's, stamps etc) were already on my table and I was on a "baby cards" mode, I decided to create another one.  This time, I didn't used clothespin and I only used 2 colours and a combination of a plaid and polka dots dp!  The images and sentiments were all from Baby Bundle set (by Clear Dollar Stamps).

Thanks for the visit and I hope you like what I've shared today!

God bless us all!

Great Is God's Faithfulness

Happy Monday everyone! After more than a month, I was finally able to sit on my craft table and created a card!! My craft area is still a bit of a mess but I'm happy I managed to make a card while my boys are in school (and hubby's at work). :)

The dp that I used is from K&Company Charlotte. Saw it while I'm tidying up my area and decided to use it in this card. The stamp is from ODBD, sponged with Memento Tuxedo Black, die cut using Spellbinders Labels Eighteen and sponged the background using Memento Dew Drop (while still inside the die). The flowers are from Prima and they are more purple IRL than in this photo (they complement the sponged background, actually).

Thanks for following my blog and for visiting as always!
Praise God for His faithfulness! God bless us all.

Happy Saturday!  Today I  want to share with you an altered project which I finished last week.  These are binder clips to be used as place card holders for my churchmate's wedding next month.  The clips were covered with printed paper (Heidi Grace Vintage papers) and embellished with a single paper rose in their colour -- Midnight Blue.

Originally, I was planning to use a petal flower with a pearl at the center but then I had a hard time finding a 2.5mm flowers in Midnight Blue. So I decided to just use paper roses in Midnight Blue.  The beautiful paper roses which is 15mm in size were from Enthaily Australia.  They carry different colours and sizes of paper roses and other flowers and craft supplies, too. Plus their postage is very reasonable. I'm not in any way associated with them, I'm just one of their happy and satisifed customers that's why! :)

Thanks for looking and have a blessed day!

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! I haven't been stamping and crafting lately but will do as soon as I finished organising my stuffs in my craft area. :)

Just a quick note, though. I've created a SHOP PAGE here on my blog and will be putting there some bits and bobs of cardmaking supplies. Some are new, some are used but in very good condition, some others are just doubled stuffs that I ordered and some are being sold in order to give way for my future hoardings. LOL!

Please keep visiting as I might upload them either today or tomorrow.

Thanks and God bless us all!

Happy Monday everyone! Today my kids went back to school after a month-long school holiday. I can't believe that my eldest is now in his Year 7 and will be turning teen this March!! On the other hand, the youngest is now Year 2 and was very excited this morning while preparing for school. :)  Because of the "back-to-school" issue, I was busy preparing for their school needs weeks before and didn't get much time to play in any challenges or create any cards BUT I was able to alter notebooks last Saturday night for my sisters in Christ.

I bought a reporter's notebook (as it's being said on the label) and decided to dress them up with my patterned papers with stamped Bible verses from Our Daily Bread Designs and Unity Stamp.
Here's the before photo:

And the "after" photos:

I feel so blessed that I was able to bless them with these notebooks which they can use for different purposes but most of all, for jotting down notes during our Sunday Worship Service. :)

Thanks for looking and have a blessed day!

Life Is.....

Happy New Year fellow stampers and bloggers! My post for today isn't stamping-related but it's about a short poem/composition that I've written awhile ago. Just thought I'd share it with my readers as the new year starts.

Life is indeed short, and without God it is like an unsharpened pencil, it has not point. (wonderful verse I've read somewhere)

Happy New Year everyone! I hope that with this poem, I was able to inspire or encourage you.

God bless us all!
