PTI Make It Monday#3

Happy Friday.
Just pop in to share a quick project made for PTI's Make It Monday: Glitter Strips with Score Tape

Super fun project and a great technique to add some extra shine on the card. Here is my take. I emboss the flowers with clear glitter embossing powder. Flowers from Year of flower:Carnations set (This is my new favorite set and I can't put it down. )and sentiment from Delightful Dahlia set. Glitter from Martha Stewart. 
Have a great weekend.

Simply Handmade Rose Card

Happy Saturday!

It's a bright beautiful sunny day. Cold but sunny. I have no complain at all. at least the rain is away for a while. I am so happy to find some time to craft when watching hubby cleaning up the back yard mess through out my craft room window. Hoe about you? Any weekend craft plan?

I made this card for a dear friend's birthday. Her birthday was actually on Thursday but I want to give this to her in person when we hang out next Monday. Make sure the rose not being ruined by mailing. Specially it's pretty wet recently.

This card is for few challenges. I use the color from PDCC69 Red, Green and Black. It's the first "Combined Grid  Challenge" with CASE Study Challenge #27. The sketch from Card Patterns Sketch 103 Also I enter this one for Hero Arts February challenge: Friendship

Stamp: CL435 So Artsy, CG179 Rose background --Hero Arts

Have a great weekend

PTI Make It Monday#2

One of my favorite stamp company Paper Trey Ink is having a new challenge series: Make It Monday. Every Monday there will be a new technique video posted on Nichole's blog or you can follow PTI on face book. You can find all the details on her blog. You could win a free stamp set of your choice. How fun is that.

Here is my take on this weeks technique:Vellum Sentiment strip. You don't want to miss Nicole's video. Her Year of flower Sweet Pea card is so pretty. This really is a good way to add the sentiment on card and make it pop.
 The background is from Polka Dot Basic II. Elephant and sentiment from Bitty Baby Blessing set. Die cut the frame using Spellbinder Stander Circle and Big Scallop Circle.

Stamp it! Techniques


Hi everyone

Here I am to share the best issue ever, Stamp it Technique. There are so many talented designers in this issue and the cards just amazing. I absolutely LOVE it. I found so many inspiration and I know you will too. Go get it now if you haven’t and in case it sold out at your local store. You can always buy it on-line Here. Just remember, grab it before it’s out again.

This is my first publication. I remember the day when I received the acceptance notification from Susan. I was jumping up and down and dancing in my craft room. Seeing my card and my name printed in the magazine feels so great. You can find my yellow roses card on P.27. I’ve been taking a long break for the baby. Can’t wait to get back to my craft world and start creating and submit again. 

Happy Chinese Rabbit New Year!! I am so looking forward to meet my baby rabbit this Summer. 
Hugs,
Nicky
