Be You


Hi Artsy Friends,
I hope you’re doing well under prevailing Coronavirus situation. Are you staying home to save the world or continue working/living as usual?


Anyway, it’s time to play along with Happy Little Stampers (HLS) ATC (Artist Trading Card/Coin) Challenge again. The April Challenge Theme is Make Your Own Background. For Challenge Rules and other DTs’ inspirations, please check out the Challenge Blog.

For me this theme is like Anything Goes and the possibilities are endless. To try something new, I challenged myself to use Distress Oxide Sprays which I bought last year and have not even opened yet. The following is how I made my set of ATCs using Distress Oxide Spray Resist Technique inspired by Jennifer McGuire.

Hope these ATCs are eye-pleasing to you. Thanks for stopping by. Wish you and your loved ones stay healthy during Coronavirus difficult time.


ATC Details
1. Stamp three cosmos flowers with VersaMark and heat embossed in clear on burgundy ATC panels.


2. Spray Distress Oxide Sprays (Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar)randomly on ATC panels and heat set.


3. Sprinkle Distress Oxide Spray (Squeezed Lemonade) randomly to add depth.


4. Stamp flower centers and heat embossed in gold. Cover ATC panel borders by VersaMark pen and heat embossed ATC panel borders in gold.


5. Glue text tissue paper and cover all ATC panel with Matte Medium. Surprisingly all colors become vivid and bright.


6. Attach ATC panel to ATC base. Voila!

If Life Gives You Lemons


Hi Artsy Friends,

It’s time to play along with Happy Little Stampers (HLS) ATC (Artist Trading Card/Coin) Challenge again. The February Challenge Theme is Fruity.

I am a fruits lover. I eat lots of fruits every day. But I must say this challenge is super difficult for me because I have rare fruit-image stamps.
I found and found and finally found an old NEW stamp set- SU Lemon Zest. Thank God I bought it last year. Otherwise I would have had nothing to hand in.

I’m glad I went back to the basics- purely stamping and punch, and recalled the simple joy.
Hope this set of ATCs is eye-pleasing to you. Thanks for stopping by and wish you a great day.

He Who Plants a Tree Plants a Hope



Hi Artsy Friends,
Welcome to the first Happy Little Stampers’ (HLS's) ATC (Artist Trading Card/Coin) Challenge for 2020. The January Challenge Theme is Masculine.


For Challenge Rules and other DTs’ inspirations, please check out the Challenge Blog.

Honestly speaking, making a Masculine project is very challenging to me because I’m too feminine (ha!) and I have very few masculine stamps. I finally decided to pick a tree image and simply enjoyed stamping and revisiting some basic techniques - brayering, VersaMark Resist and Heat Embossing.

Hope you like this set of ATCs. Thanks for stopping by and wish you a great day.
