World Card Making Day

Hello crafty friends
Happy World Card Making Day!! I am so thrilled to be part of the Simon Says Stamps WCMD 2017 celebration party. 20 designers from the globe were invited to join the fun. I’m representing China. We love red and gold in terms of celebration, so I wanted to add these two colours for today’s project.
Here a christmas card I created using SSS Christmas essentials and SSS circle doodle background.
   To start, I die cut a piece of watercolour paper using MFT wonky stitch rectangle die, then I stamped the SSS circle doodle background stamp in clear embossing ink on the watercolour panel, and heat set in white embossing powder. I used Gansai Tambi watercolour for the background colouring.

Next, I stamped all the images in black on white and copic coloured them. For the sentiment, I stamped it in clear embossing ink on black card stock, heat set in gold embossing powder. Ther e's no matching die for the sentiment, so I fussy cut it out. After having all the pieces ready, I adhered them to my watercolour panel. I used foam tape for the sentiment to add some detentions. To finish the card, I applied some white crystal drops just to add some interests.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you like this card and be sure to check

Your Next Stamp October release blog hop

Hi crafty friends

Welcome to Your Next Stamp October new release blog hop. This release includes a number of fun stamps and dies, including Be Jolly, Hammie holiday fun, Periodically Nerdy, and rectangle stick frame die set.

I made a card using Hammie holiday fun and rectangle stick frame die to celebrate the new release. 

I had a lot of fun when making this card. I stamped all the images in black on white card stock, coloured them by copic markers. For my background, I blended worn lipstick and cracked pistachio distress oxide inks on the case base, and added drops of water using distress sprayer. Then I die cut the rectangle stick frame twice on a card panel to create the windows.

I fussy cut all the images I coloured earlier and foam mounted them on the card panel. And, my card is finished.

Your Next Stamp October new release preview

Hello friends
Today is Your Next Stamp October new release preview day! Can you believe that we are already in October, and the holiday season is not that far away. I am just wondering if everyone else has started making Christmas cards yet, because I have been making mine since September. Here is a card I created using Be Jolly and large reverse scallop die from Your Next Stamp October new release.

I had a dancing critter, obviously he would need a stage for his holiday dance, so I used Tim Holtz rays stencil and fossilised amber distress oxide ink to create the stage lighting, and the large reverse scallop die to create the stage curtains.

 I hope you like this card, please visit Your Next Stamp blog to see more preview photos from other design team members.

Be sure to come back tonight at 10:00pm EST for YNS New Release Blog Hop and your chance to win a $25 gift certificate!! 

Thanks so much for stopping by, hope to see you all soon.
