Hello

Using Owen in the Flower Pot 🙂

Hi peeps,

Its Easel Card this week at Sew Many Cards challenge #52, and it has been such a fun project for me… and this is my First Easel card project :), and its easier than you think.. if you have not made one before… you can check this tutorial here on how to make an easel card. Easy peasy.

This is also my last outing as SMC Design Team. I am sad to leave the team, but I am finding difficulty to meet cards deadlines due to work. It has been such a great time working with Angela, Deanette, Mari, Radwa, and the rest of the team, cant believe its more than six months now. Such a fab team. I love you guys and will come by and play every now and then :).

Remember to come by and play your Easel card with us this week :). Laters ….

ps   I am so very excited to have friends over at my home to play along, and play my dies…. yeah! I have a whole bunch of them lol :). okie.. gotta go and clean up my house and craft room… ciao!

About this card

I had used Owen in the Flower Pot digi, printed, coloured and trimmed it. I adhere it over doily (pti) and adhered to a stamped polka dot background (pti), layered it to a brown cardstock, over pp and adhered them to the plain art card base. For the inner layout, I had laced the border (friskars) over the stamped border (Wplus9) on pp. This allows the front of the card to stand (border punch layer as the holder).

February Cards for Charity Updates ( Part 1)

Hey all,

First, I know I am rather late in posting this, but was too caught up with new job… so here it is..

About two months ago, I posted the designs for  Cards for Charity Part1 , Cards for Charity Part2 and Cards for Charity Mini collection  for our fund raising project for Rumah Jaireh, home for HIV children :). About 11 of us made over 100 mini cards that day. Packs were sold at RM40 (for 6 minis) and from the sales, we made about  RM580 so far, and some cards are still being sold 🙂 by different parties.

Its a must see site for all visiting Malaysia. 🙂

About the card… 

It really took me along time to figure out the theme for this card, till the last hour, coz, after this, its packing and straight to Malacca :p.

As for the base, you can see that I did heavy colours misting on a plain cardstock.. this is just so fun. After I had it dry, I had stamped balloons (Hero Arts)all over it.. really fun technique :). Its amazing to see how we can continuous use plain card stock and and dimensions to it 🙂

The “Happy” sentiment is from this cute roll that I had gotten from a party theme shop when I went to see a dear friend.. talk about fringe benefit.. 🙂 new fun collection lol..

I had used the movie ticket and printed it on kraft.. lovely isnt it.. I heart this and they just fit the card right.. as u can see the dimension on the card. This babe can be copied and paste on for a long ticket or enlarged as you like.. fab isnt it :)! and I had stamped sentiment “party time” by pti. I pretty stapled it on the card …:)

As for the upper portion, I had stamped those cute banners (Dear Lizzy- AC) :).

I had die cut the little tag (Cuttlebug), stamped High 5 (Hero Arts) and I proceeded to stamped those little dots (pti) all around the stamp and finished it off with twine tie.. and adhered to it.
