Day 87 All Natural, Sew Many Challenges

Gosh.. its such a long time since tI did such a fast posting for 365 cards.. lol. All Natural.. I had look through my stash of anything that is all natural or at least look all natural, and I found these bunches of flowers from an art shop nearby my house. The art shop unfortunately sells only graphic design and art materials. I saw these two packet of flowers hanging dustily at a corner. Lucky thing I got them, coz it sure makes my card today super easy :).

I had used Bazzill cardstock as base and I layered this gorgeous fibre paper that my teacher brother bought me when he went on a school trip to Chiengmai, Thailand, yes me culprit, getting the family involved :p. He is gracious and generous as he bought loads of different kinda papers and flowers for me πŸ™‚ for free πŸ™‚ :). Thanks Paul, you are a GEM πŸ˜€ … hugs..

I had tied the bunches of flowers with a checked ribbon( i love this ribbon) and sewn a buton over. I finished off the card with the sentiment from Hero Arts and stapled it in.

I kinda like the grunge look of this all natural card.. and this card is for all of you who been kind in visiting my blog and leaving your wonderful footprints and all who have constantly given me so much encouragement and support since I dive into the craft blogland! Happy crafting everyone.. Love ya!! πŸ˜€

Clean and Simple FTL 91, Sew Many Challenges

Hi all… I was so excited when I saw Janice left me a congratulatory comment on my Enjoy the Moment card. Thanks Janice:). I have been entering so many challenges.. I got a little disoriented as which challenges I had participated. Thank Q Colour Q was annointing my Enjoy the Moment card as Color Q Royal Courtier. I was beaming and grinning ear to ear. :D.. thank you for the challenge… I have to admit I love colour challenges because they teach me about colour combinations and uses of colours!

This morning, I saw Clean and Simple sketch challenge and I wanted to give this a try. I wanted to try a few different techniques for the is card and I do love the outcome. Hope you love it too πŸ˜€

I had stamped my text stamp (Hero Arts) on light brown paper, I punched out flowers in three different sizes, the larges in core coordinations, medium size and smaller size floral on text stamped paper. I had the flower pieced together using a medium rust colour brad in the middle and smaller yellow ones around it. I did a fluff on the flowers and they do come out quite nicely. I had stamped a branch of leaves and had them cut out.

I had used a really nice cream acid free sketch pad that I had gotten as the base, embossed and distressed it with Ranges Ink. I laced the card with a handmade ribbon ( i had used a scissor (MS) to cut it to give a little skirting effect and lace the it with another lovely ribbon that I had received from Cindy. Place the leaves and finally the flowers over it.

May your day fill with blooms of joy and happiness and thanks for dropping by :).

Day 84 Super Sketchy Sunday, Sew Many Challenges

Hi all!.. Hope you had a great weekend! Mine was catching up with friends for dinner and coffee and crafty time. I saw the beautiful sketch by Pam for the Super Sketchy Sunday but I didnt want to do sunrays, as the DTs has really rock the challenge with sunrays. So I had really good thought about it and this came to my mind when I saw talented Evelin work, she had used an umbrella image in her card.

I had just received my PTI Scattered Shower set two weeks ago and I had not had the opportunity to play with it yet. The the idea I had in my mind was do away any rain, sadness or disappointment (umbrellas upside down) and wishing all of us Sunshine instead. Hope you like this CAS.

Have a Sunshine Week ahead πŸ˜€

Cardstock : Kraft, October Afternoon (umbrellas) and black jagged (Little Yellow Bicycle)
