Hi, a quick post for PTI March 2012 Blog Hop. I see lots of polka dots in the inspired photo so I decide to go with it. I made a card for my dear friend who is expecting her baby boy this Summer.Love the color combo in the photo, yellow, turquoise and white.

Here is my card. I used a stamp for All About You set to create the background. The giraffe stamp and coordinated die and sentiment from Sweet Baby set.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hero Arts Velveteen stamping

Hi everyone, I made this card using Velveteen stamping technique again. I can't stop because it's jsut too pretty.

This time I stamp the vine background with Papertrey Ink Fresh snow ink on white card stock.
I stamp the flowers and leaves from Hero Arts Sweet threads stamp set.  Sentiment and butterflies from Hooray set using Hero Arts Shadow inks: Soft Yellow, Pool mid-tone , Cup O' Joe mid-tone and Wet Cement mid-tone.

It is so pretty in person and I hope I can catch the vine background through all the stamped images. BTW, isn't the polka dot butterfly cute? It goes so well with the Pool shadow ink. Love it.

Close up of the butterflies. CUTE~

Hero Arts March 2012 Challenge

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.
