Keep Some Room in Your Heart

Hi Stamping Friends,

It’s time to play along with Happy Little Stampers (HLS) Mixed Media Challenge again. The July  Challenge Theme is NEWSPAPER.

For more details and other DTs’ inspirations, please check out the Challenge Blog. Anything mixed media could be linked up to our challenge as long as it follows our theme. Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! IF YOU USE STAMPS BY HAPPY LITTLE STAMPERS AND YOU ARE OUR RANDOM WINNER, YOUR PRIZE WILL BE DOUBLED!

The following is how I made my tag.

Tag Details 

1. Stamp newspaper stamp (by Hero Arts) in black on cardstock and cover with gesso randomly. Let dry.
2. Apply Distress Inks to make Ombre effect.
3. Apply Crackle Texture Paste over stencil (The Crafters Workshop) on tag.

4. Stamp silhouette lady (by Dina Wakley) in black and cut out. Die cut a heart and apply Distress Ink to create Ombre effect.
5. Assemble the tag and adhere text (Tim Holtz Idea-ology Small Talk) on tag.
This is a last-minute artwork yet I think it turned out to be OK. Hope it’s eye-pleasing to you. Thanks for stopping by.

Smile and Sparkle

Hi Stamping Friends,

We have a holiday here in Taiwan today - the dragon boat festival. Yay! In addition to eating Zongzi, a triangle-like sticking rice dumpling, I managed to finish a CAS card and I’m absolutely happy about this.

Card Details

1. I used up some of my previously-made mixed media scraps by weaving them randomly and layering as a background layer.

2. Butterfly die cut is by Sizzix/Tim Holtz. Text is by Happy Little Stampers.
3. Gold, Silver Metallic and Sparkle Transparent Embossing Powders are by Tsukineko.

Hope this card is eye-pleasing to you. Thanks for stopping by and wish you a great week ahead.

I combined Mixed Embossing Powders Technique and Encrusted Jewel Technique to make my butterfly. Thanks CAS Mixed Up DTs for the challenge theme and the inspirations.

My choice in this card is Die Cut. I must say the embossed butterfly is awesomely shining and sparkling as can be seen below.
I have butterfly, Metallic (Theme) and Mint Green/Medium Blue (Color) in my card.
