The Wedding, the Blessing

Hi friends, i'm back with my new cards for wedding!
Understand that Christmas is around the corner and everybody is busy creating Christmas Card, but i do receive order for wedding card, guess this is the season for wedding too! xoxo

For today's cards, i actually getting the idea from Pinterest, and there are thousands of great ideas and projects available in the Pinterest. I just can't stop myself of browsing all the great project whenever i'm free.
When i first saw the Doily dress, i have the inspiration to create this card for my friend's order, pretty awesome for the wedding.

The doily dress is simple to make, and i added some ribbon and stone as decoration. The sentiment is from Unity Lets Celebrate Itty Bitty, and it complete my card perfectly!


Don't you think it's pretty? Simple and pretty.


This is my second card for wedding theme as well. 
Again, this card is inspired  from one of the project in Pinterest. 
If you notice, both cards is using emboss effects as background, and it's beautiful and suitable for any occasions as per your wish.

The Sentiment is from Unity Stamp, and i added some Prima flowers as decoration since my card is for wedding.

I added a ribbon bow and some bling stone as final touch up, and i really like the pastel color on the card.

You are not alone

Hi, I'm back with my second post for today.
While listening to Christmas Carol in my scrappy room, i just have this inspiration of doing a card for my friend, whom i didn't meet her for so long.
I remember the last time i met her, is on my mom's funeral service, and that is half year ago. And tonight, this is the card that i specially make for her.


I purposely choose this sentiment, which is from Unity Fix Problems stamp. We used to laugh together, cry together and share our problems together. And now, I would like to tell her the same, that she don't have to face all the problems alone, I'll bear with her. 


This beautiful butterfly is from Unity Strength & Dignity (Kom 11/13) kit, and i colored the butterfly with color pencil. On top, i add some Stickles as touch up for the butterfly.


This is the finished card on my desk, and i decided to post it on Monday. 
Hope she will receive soon.

For today's card sketch, i get the idea from Mojo Monday 370 Contest, this is so pretty and it's easy to follow even you are new to card making.

Hope you like my card, happy weekend to you!

Growing in Unity - Day 5

Hi hi, welcome back for my last day as GIU girl this week. Have you following my post since Monday? If no, you can start from Day 1 and do leave comment on each post for a chance to win 2 Itty Bitty Stamp by end of the week.

As today is the last day as GIU girl for me, i would like to share a mixed media tag for Christmas.
This is the first time i'm using Suzi Blu stamp on my artwork, and i'm pretty nervous as i never try on her stamps before.
When i took out the tag (which is the free gift from Unity order), my mind just kept thinking about this stamp.
Did i mentioned how i get this stamp from Unity? I actually got it from one of the grab bag which i purchased last year. This stamp has been sitting in my stamp folder for a year, and finally i used it for this project.
To cut the story short, I've a simple tutorial show as below.


First, i colored my tag with Tim Holtz Distress Paint: Picked Raspberry and China Blue.
The fun of distress paint is it will react to water and you can blend the color easily when it is wet! If you would like to learn more about distress paint, you can check out the video here.
This is how my tag look like after it is dry.

Next, i pick up 2 snowflake stamps from Snowflake kisses kit which i share in my yesterday's post. I stamp up both stamps randomly on my tag with Brilliance Moonlight White stamp pad.


Next, i stamp up the Boy Exclusive stamp on a white card stock, colored it and cut out the image as below.


Last, I stamp a Christmas sentiment from Everything Christmas sentiment kit on a piece of card stock. I roll up the head and bottom of the card stock to make it look like a scroll. 
Then,  i add in establishments like paper flowers and ribbon to complete my tag. 


Tell your a good news, Unity is having a Suzi Blu Sales this weekend, grab all the Suzi Blu stamps now, it's 50% off this week!


Do you like my tag today?
 Kindly share your thought with me, i will pick a lucky person tomorrow and he/she will have a chance to get 2 Itty Bitty stamp for free!
Thanks for reading my post and leaving comments throughout these 5 days, do keep an eye tomorrow as i will announce the winner by tomorrow.
Happy Halloween!

Growing in Unity - Day 4

Hi friends, welcome back for my day 4 GIU sharing!
Just a quick recap if you have not visit my blog last few days, kindly please check out my sharing from Day 1 here. I am sharing my projects/ artworks using Unity Stamp from Monday till Friday this week.
Do remember to leave me a comment on each post for a chance to win 2 Itty Bitty stamps as i will pick a lucky person from all the comments in these 5 days.

This is the card i want to share today, using Unity Snowflake Kisses kit.
Do you love snowflake as i do? To be honest, I never have a chance to enjoy the snowing season as it's summer throughout the year in my country.
I just hope that there is one day, i can have a chance to celebrate Christmas in a Winter Wonderland. that sound really good. :)


Below is the simple tutorial for making my card, you can always apply different colors and try with your own design later.

First, cut out 4 pieces of small square card stock, then colored the card stock with Distress Paint. (I'm using Broken China & Evergreen Bough)
Sorry that my camera cannot really capture the 2 colors actually is different here. :(

Next, choose 2 snowflakes stamps from the kit, and emboss the snowflakes image with white emboss powder on the square cards. This is how it look like after emboss. You may want to try with other color of your choice.


Then, using the same snowflakes, i'm stamp on another white card stock with blue stamp pad to create a nice background, and i ink up the sentiment from the same kit too.


Last, stick up your square card pieces with 3D adhesive foam to create a 3D 'tiles' card.
I've add in the twine bow as decoration. You may add in some bling stone as decoration too.


The beautiful snowflake Christmas card is ready, do you like it?

That's all for my sharing today, do remember to come back tomorrow for my last day of GIU sharing.
Stay tune... ...

Growing in Unity - Day 3

Hi friends, welcome back for my GIU girls day 3 sharing!
If you have miss out my Day 1 & Day 2 sharing, kindly please click here and here and do remember to leave me a comment on each post for a chance to win 2 Itty Bitty Stamp. For your info, i will pick a lucky winner on Saturday from all the comments through out the 5 days.


This is the art work that i would like to share with your today.
One of the reason I LOVE Unity Stamp is because of the wide range of stamps they offered.
From cute images to vintage stamps, they have bundles of designs available for you to choose. 
Not forgetting that they have stamps for seasons, festivals, they also have stamps for your special event too!
One of the range that i love the most is they do have stamps for creating background pattern, which allows you to apply easily on your card and canvas projects.

For this card, the front image I'm using Hello Gorgeous from Itty Bitty, and the background stamp I'm using is Chicken Wire Background.
Below is the simple instruction how i create my background with this stamp.

 First, i blending 3 distress colors on a white card. If you would like to follow my sample, i'm using Peacock Feather, Antique Linen & Peeled Paint from Tim Holtz Distress Ink pad.

Then, i sprayed some mist on the card and blow dry it before i stamp the chicken wire background image randomly. 
Last, you can assemble your color card stock pieces, colored image as per your preference.


By using the same Chicken Wire Background stamp, i have another canvas project to share with your.
This is a special wedding gift for my friend and i seriously love the stamp so much as it create a fantastic background on canvas too.





Beside using the chicken wire background stamp i also using Vintage Handwritten to be part of the background image, both stamps can create a beautiful background for any artworks.

This is how the canvas look like, hope my friend like it.

Attached with the canvas, I've make another greeting card for them, both sentiments are from Tying The Knot kit. 

That's all for today sharing, if you love the projects that i share, kindly leave me a comment for a chance to win 2 Itty Bitty Stamps.
Do remember to come back tomorrow for my next project ya, have a nice day!
