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.

Stamps are all by Stampin’ Up.

Happy New Year

Hi Artsy Friends,

Happy New Year! I wish all of you another successful year full of achievements, laughter and love. Let’s stay healthy, be creative and happy throughout the year of 2020.

I made this card for my extremely talented artsy friend, Ann Chuang who was sweet enough to have sent me a Christmas card earlier. The inspirations came from Ann’s card sketch below,

my previous ATCs,

and the scene I saw in my recent trip to Nikko, Japan.

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

Card Details,
1. Stamp is by Hero Arts and dies are by Memory Box. Stencil and die cut are by Memory Box.
2. For the mixed media background tutorial, please check out my previous DT post here.

The Christmas Day (12/25) is a normal working day here in Taiwan and I haven’t decorated a Christmas tree in my home for some years. So I’m sharing a snowy landscape card with several snow-covered trees.  I made this card on the last day of 2019 and it surely is one of my favorite cards.
