Smile and Sparkle


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 set 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.

Challenges to Enter



 
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.

I must confess (again) that due to time constraints, I had no idea what and how to start. Luckily I was so inspired by Shari Carrol’s video tutorial that I kicked start quickly. The tag is full of layers. The following is how I made the tag.


Tag Details 
I mimicked what Shari did (please see the YouTube tutorial) and made four background papers in one time.

2. Picked one of the background cardstock and cut into the tag size. Overstamp text background (by Stampers Anonymous).


3. Applied Pearlescent Embossing Paste over leave stencil (by Simon Says Stamp) on tag and let dry.

4. Stamped flower and stem (by Altenew) and die cut. Heat emboss text in white on black scrap.


 5. Assembled the tag. The pearlescent shine is really stunning.

 
 




 
The tag’s vividly bright colors together with the elegant flower and leave made me happy. Hope it is eye-pleasing to you.  Thanks so much for stopping by and wish you a happy day.

This is my first time ever to play along with Altenew challenge. I was inspired by the color and the element – flower.

Life is Good


Hi Stamping Friends,

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


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! Check out all the details HERE. IF YOU USE STAMPS BY HAPPY LITTLE STAMPERS AND YOU ARE OUR RANDOM WINNER, YOUR PRIZE WILL BE DOUBLED!

I must confess that due to time constraints, I had no inspirations at all. I started from a piece of previously-made scrap to save time. The following are how I made my tag.


Tag Details


1. The scrap to kick off my tag is shown below. I believe I spritzed various distress mists on stencil and used the stencil as a stamp over a card stock.


2. Apply various Distress Inks to create tone-on-tone effect.


3. Stamp music note collage.


4. Apple Distress Oxide Ink on stencil. Mist the stencil and use the stencil as a stamp over the tag. Edge the tag with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.


5. Apply Gold Embossing Paste over Floral Stencil on tag. To make the gold silhouette flower pop, trace the raised portion with black Sharpie pen.


6. Stamp text and frame, and cut out.


7. Assemble the tag.



Hope this last-minute project is eye-pleasing to you.  Thanks for stopping by and wish you a great day.
