TAWS June Release - Sneak Peek Day 2

Burberry inspired card anyone? :)

Hello friends,

Today i'm sharing a sneak peek of  a new set called Crossing Lines.  It consists of 6 different stamps with various stripes.  So perfect for building plaid and patterned background.

On this card, i used the 3-stripe stamp in Hazel, then i masked and colored the squares with Spun Sugar.  I used a copic marker to add the blue lines.  Sentiments from Simon Says and TAWS added along with few sequins to finish the look.

Here's my next project using a cut file from Silhouettes store and Crossing Lines set.  On this purse, i used the same color scheme as my card, but stamped the pattern in diamonds instead of squares.

My 4 year old son saw this purse when i just finished.  He really really liked it, but said "it's for girls".  He's then quiet for few seconds and said "mommy, can you put transformers on it?"... I guess with transformers, it'd be "manly" enough for him to carry it rofl...

Watercolored Onesie Card

Hello friends,

Today, i'm sharing another baby card using watercolor technique.  On this card, i stamped the onesies in Spun Sugar, so when i blend the watercolors on the onesies, the stamped images are blended in and the edges are soften.  They look like hand-drawn images with watercolor.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!

A Card for PTI May Blog Hop, CAS(E) this Sketch #77 and CASology Week 96

Hello again,

Earlier, i made a card for PTI May Blog Hop without checking CAS(E) this Sketch (silly me).  So I'm back to my crafting space for another card.  This time, i'm incorporating the 2 challenges.

I first drew the banner with pencil then masked it with drawing gum.  Then i stamped the flowers in Spun Sugar and leaves in Antique Linen.  After that i used watercolor to colored over the stamped images.  I like the undefined edges... the images look like hand drawn with watercolors.  I'm also submitting this card to CASology Week 96: Flower

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful evening!

Papertrey Ink May Blog Hop - Aqua and Melon

Hello everyone,

Hope your weekend is going well.  Today, i'm sharing a card made for PTI May Blog Hop.  Oh i love this color combo, and have seen them everywhere.  The inspirational image is just gorgeous.  

As i was writing this post, it hit me that i could have used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch!... duh.  Oh well, i guess i can try to make another card after coming back from church today.   I'm also submitting this card to CASology: Week 96 Flower.

Here's my take.  I hope you like it.  Have a wonderful day!
