Hero Arts Sketch contest

2nd post today to post my Hero Arts December contest:Sketch challenge. You can find all the details Here. I also submit this one for CREATE Blog challenge: New Year cards. (details Here)

MIM#46 Any Die Into a Folded Tag

Hi, quick post to share a card I made for Make It Monday#46: Any Die Into a Folded Tag. You can find the Tutorial Video and the beautiful tags made by Erin Lincoln Here. Hope you play along.

I made a baby girl tag for my neighbor and using Mat Stack4 and Sweet Baby stamp set. I made the tag as showed in the video. Stamp the sentiment and die cut the pink doted giraffe from 2009 Bitty Dot Basics pattern paper and adhere on the tag. Tie on twine and adhere doily.

Hero Arts December Contest

Hi everyone, LONG LONG time no see. I can't believe I last post is September. Sorry not being able to catch up for so long. How is everyone, hope all is good. My baby and I are doing fantastic. Channing is such a wonderful baby, good eater, good sleeper, good player. I can't ask for more.

Here I want to share a card I made for Hero Arts December Contest and is inspired by Shari Carroll's Pocket card Here. Its so much fun. You have to give it a try.

I made a Snowball as the focal point. Lots of shine on it. I don't know about you but me, I always have some glitter and shining on my holiday cards. Haha~ 
 I follow the instruction to made a craft card base. Stamp the snowflakes.
Die cut a circle from a white cardstock and stamp the image, color with Copic. The I ink up the whole circle with VersaMark ink then sprinkle lots of glittered embossing powder to cover it. After heat set, its not only shine from the glitter but also the embossed surface. Very pretty.

Here is the close look of the snowball. Pretty~huh~

Here is the inside of the card. You can see the pocket here. I stamp the sentiment and more snowflake to decorate the inside.
