Happy Halloween


Hello Artsy Friends,

I’m super excited and honored to be the Featured Guest Designer for Stamps and Stencils’ October Challenge - Spooky Fun with an Autumnal twist. I'd like to thank Stamps and Stencils DTs for choosing my tag as the Winner and inviting me as Guest Designer.

I must confess that I’m not really into the spooky things, especially that I don’t have little children around me for some years. Yet I’ve decided to challenge myself to create an Autumnal tag with some spooky elements. It’s fun to explore something out of my comfort zone.



For details of how I made my tag, please check out my Guest Designer Post.

Hope my non-traditional Halloween tag is eye-pleasing and inspirational to you. Please do check out the Challenge Blog for more inspirations from the talents DTs and join us for the fun.

If you like my tag, please do let me know. Thanks for stopping by and wish you a great day.

Wishing You Everything Good


Direct marker coloring and heat embossing are the very techniques that I learned when I first entered the stamping world. The floral and text stamps are old Hero Arts stamps. The subtle Aida Cloth background is an old Stampin’ Up stamp. Hmm, this card made me feel going back to basics and nostalgia even though the colors are bright. Hope this CAS card is eye-pleasing to you. Thanks for stopping by and wish you a great day.

You’re One in a Million


Hi Stamping Friends,

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

Honestly speaking, I am not sure what MESSY really means. It’s dumb, I know. Ha! I thought something dark, dirty or muddy might qualify as MESSY and this tag is what I came up with. For me, this is really a challenge because I tend to use pretty and bright color schemes. I'm delighted that I challenged myself to go beyond my comfort zone. Hope this tag with galaxy background is eye-pleasing to you. Thanks for stopping by and wish you a great day.

1. Apply several Distress Oxide Inks directly on watercolor paper.


2. Spritz generous amount of pearlized water on paper.Heat set.



3. Apply Black Soot Distress Oxide on acrylic block, then randomly cover paper.
