Get Well Soon – Stenciling with Perfect Pearls again

Hi Artsy Friends,

This is my second try of Stenciling with Perfect Pearls. I tried to create an Ombre effect by applying four shades of Perfect Pearls: Forever Red, Rust, Plum and Blush. But, as you can see, the color looks the same!

Ha! I don’t mind, anyway! I enjoy playing with this almost-forgotten toy. I’ve been buried by my full-time job lately. So making CAS card is a treat for me. Hope this card is eye-pleasing to you. Thanks for stopping by.

Card Details
1. Stencil and text are by Hero Arts.
2. Wonky Frame die is by My Favorite Things.
3. Text is heat embossed in black.

Happy Ever After – Stenciling with Perfect Pearls

Edited on 7/27/2019
I’m thrilled that this card was picked as an Outstanding Design of CAS Stencil June Challenge. Thanks, DTs.

Hi Artsy Friends,

This card is for my another niece. The young couple will settle down in Seattle. I wish her and her Prince Johnny happy ever after.

I am happy with this card because I finished it just in time for her. Besides, I played with Perfect Pearls over stencil for the first time.

The pearlized shine is so pretty.

Furthermore, the stencil is a DIY one, made from a die. Hope this card is eye-pleasing to you. Thanks for stopping by.

Card Details
1. Stamps are by STAMPloations. Die is by Simon Says Stamp.

2. Masking and Stenciling with Perfect Pearls techniques are applied for this card. I'd like to thank CAS Stencil Challenge Blog DTs for the inspirations.

I’m sure my brother and sister-in-law might have a hard time in the beginning. She is a talented young lady with strong academic background. I wish her every success in her college journey.

I’m happy when I finished this card as I was able to play some techniques in this one-layer card. The rainbow color blending also made me delighted. Hope you like this card. Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Birthday

Edited on 7/27/2019
I’m excited that this card was picked as the Winner of STAMPlorations June Theme and Sketch Challenge. Thanks, DTs.

Hi Artsy Friends,

I seldom watched TV. Instead I enjoy taking online art classes in my leisure time. I must confess I am not a good student. Most of the time I just enjoy getting inspirations as refreshment or relaxation without taking real actions to make cards. It is ridiculous, I know.

But today, I made one. Yay! This card was inspired by Laurel Beard’s Stenciled: Multiple Ways, Lesson One- Masked Stenciling as well as Altenew June Inspiration Challenge hosted by Virginia Lu. I like how the card turned out to be. Hope it is eye-pleasing to you too. Thanks for stopping by and wish you a great day.

Card Details

Stencil, stamps (flower and texts) and dies are all by Altenew.

Joy Love Peace

Hi Artsy Friends,
It’s time to play along with Happy Little Stampers (HLS) ATC (Artist Trading Card/Coin) Challenge again. The June Challenge Theme is Christmas. For Challenge Rules and other DTs’ inspirations, please check out the Challenge Blog.

 I must confess that I have never made any Christmas cards or ATCs in June before. Ha! I’m glad I gave it a try! Please do join us for the fun.

It’s very hot in Taiwan now. These snowflake ATCs are eye-pleasing to me and cool me down. Hope you feel the same. Thanks for stopping by and wish you a great day.

The following are how I made these ATCs.

ATC Details

1. Apply Direct-to-Paper technique using various Distress Inks to a watercolor panel.
2. Spritz water to blend Distress Inks.
3. Stamp text (Hero Arts) with Black ink on watercolor panel.
4. Apply Nuvo Glimmer Paste over Snowflake stencil (Memory Box) on watercolor panel.
5. When dry, cut watercolor panel into ATC size.
6. Mount the watercolor ATCs to white ATC panels. Stamp texts (Hero Arts) in black on white scrap and in VersaMark and heat emboss in white on black scrap, respectively. Adhere sentiments on ATCs.
