Make It Monday #63: Glitter Die Cuts

This is my 2nd post today. I made this one last night for Make It Monday #63: Glitter Die Cuts. 
Fun. fun. fun. Glitters really gives a big impact to the card and I try to keep the design simple to let the glitter shine. 


I used Turning a New Leaf die with glitter and Edgers #1. I also die cut the flowers using velum from Beautiful Blooms II #3 die. Sentiment from Signature Greetings.


A little update of life. I have been busy for few weeks getting ready to travel. My son and I are going to take a 6 weeks vacation back to Taiwan to visit my parents and we are leaving TONIGHT. I won't be able to play any of the challenge but will continuing share some cards here. Finger crossed he will be good during the 13 hours flight.

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day.

PTI April 2012 Blog hop

Welcome to Papertrey Ink April 2012 Blog Hop. Here is photo for the inspiration challenge.
Here is my card. I am inspired by the beautiful color of the fabric.

I create the background by stamping the butterfly from Pretty Peonies set , flower from Beautiful Blooms set and leaves from Turning a New Leave set. I stamp the frame and sentiment on scratch paper , cut out and pop off with foam tape. Also I stamp the solid peony then I color and blend with markers. Love the water color look of the peony.
All the inks and markers are MOMENTO.

Close look of the peony.

Thanks for looking. I would love to hear what you think of the peony.

Hero Arts March 2012 Challenge

Hi
Hero Arts March 2012 Challenge is all about Spring. This month's theme is [ Fabulous Flowers]. I can't wait to dig out all my flower and create something "spring". Also, make sure you check out Shari's Velveteen technique Video Here. It's so pretty and fun technique. You got to give it a try.
Today I have a birthday card set to share with you using Velveteen stamping. I start from my left over scratch cards stamped with Life of the Party Words background stamp with Wheat pigment ink.

First one is for a sweet little girl. Guess what's her favorite color!! I love the new mid-tone Hero Arts Shadow inks. I stamp the hearts with Bubble Gum shadow ink and Barn Door distress ink. Also stamp butterflies ans sentiment with Wet Cement shadow ink. (One of my favorite.) The color is very very beautiful.

This one I stamp starts Field Greens, Green Hills and Wet Cement. (Of course.) Hope you can see the background peeking through the stamped starts. It's fun to see it in person but hard to photo it clearly. Also My new favorite sentiment stamp set: Year Round Sentiments. I use sorts of hearts and starts from this set.

Make It Monday #55:

Quick post today. I made two cards for . This is a very genius and creative way to stretch your supplies and imagination. Dawn McVey made a great tutorial video Here she has 3 cards made using this technique or you can find out the detail on Nichole's blog.  

Here is my card. I really want to use the new Pretty Peonies stamp set. So so so pretty. I know I will make more cards with this set. I used same design but different color on two cards.  

I didn't not choose the frame set that Dawn used in her video but the circle ones she showed on her blog. This technique really makes a beautiful background.


I can't stop just making one card so I made another one using the same supplies and design but different color.I Stamp the Peonies with white ink on light blue paper. So pretty in person. Love love this stamp set.

Here is the close up of the focal image. I ink up the stamp with use Barn Door Distress ink and spray water before I stamp. It is really subtle and really pretty.
Have a good weekend.
