A Rainbow Thank You Card

IMG_1550.JPG

I am learning about watercoloring and been having so much fun with it 🙂 Today, I made a card to join the fun week with Winnie & Walter, Share the Love Week 1, featuring Simon Says Stamp. There so many inspirations on W&W blog!

On a piece of watercolor paper, I used CTMH Watercolor pencils to make the rainbow background, added some water using the brush and Ta-Da! Love it! I dried it with my Craft Heater for quick drying, you also can just let it air dry if you are not in hurry. I added adhesive using Xyron large sticker maker.

Using Silhouette Studio Designer, I resized W & W Freebie, Cut Files Basic Vol.1. It is a diagonal stripe journaling card size so I resized it first as big as my card base. Cut it. I used using Liquid Glass glue to add it on top of the watercolored background.

I love W & W The Big, The Bold and Extra stamp set!! Those gorgeous flowers & leaves I stamped a lot of them on a piece of CTMH White Daisy cardstock using CTMH Exclusive Inks Pads: Pixie, Smoothie, Pear and Olive. Then I fussy cut them.

The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp May 2013 Card Kit stamp set. I stamped it on a piece of velum with VersaMark ink pad, added some Gold Embossing powder and then heated it up with my Craft Heater. I used Liquid Glass to add it on the card.

Then at last step I added a bunch of flowers and leaves on the velum using Liquid Glass and 3D Foam Tape.

Thank you for being here 🙂

Thankful Thursday

I would like to share one Thank You card on every Thursday. This is my first post on this Thank You Thursday! 😀 This is for ALL OF YOU, my readers!

I go with clean, simple and monochrome. On a 4.25″ x 5.5″ Kraft Card, I use VersaMark watermark ink pad to stamp those roses and leaves from The Big, The Bold and Extra stamp set from Winnie & Walter. Then I add some Ranger Super Fine Detail White Embossing Powder. I heat them up with my Craft Heater and love to see they melt into pretty solid embossed white roses.

The banner is from the same stamp set, and the sentiment is from Big Bold You stamp set. I stamp both banner and sentiment using Black Exclusive Ink Pad. Then I fussy cut the banner and add on the card using 3D foam tape for some dimension.

I use Vintage Photo Distress Ink to add some color on the edges of the card.

I appreciate the time you spend to read and write comments on my blog, THANK YOU! This is specially for you 😀 You mean a lot to me!

The Big, Bold Thanks

Today I participate at Winnie & Walter blog link up. I created this card using The Big, The Bold and You set. The papers I pick from Amy Tangerine, Sketchbook paper pad. And the card base is from American Craft box card set. This is actually the second card I made using their stamp set 🙂

On a 1.5″ wide piece of pattern paper, I stamped the sentiment using CTMH Black Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad. Then I cut the banner flag with scissors.

For the tag I created the doily border using the negative punch from the scallop circle and I sponged Tim Holtz, Vintage Photo Distress Ink Pad on it. After it dried, I added a piece of baker’s twine on the tag.  First, I glued the chevron scallop on the card with Tombow Adhesive, then added the tag using thin 3D foam tape, then the big sentiment banner using thicker 3D foam tape. For doily paper, I added some dots of glue using glue pen and tucked it under the big banner and pressed gently to stick it well.

Just a simple, quick card for card sets I have been making for a project 🙂 THANK YOU for stopping by!

Birthday Cupcake Tag Card

2014-07-05-bday-cupcake-tag-ww-1

A couple weeks ago I got 2 of Winnie & Walter stamp sets. I love their Big and Bold sets, just simple yet gorgeous sentiments. On the weekend, I had a chance to play with one of them – The Big, The Bold and The Happy set.

My husband’s cousin invited us to their second daughter’s first birthday on Saturday and I made a quick card for this little baby girl.

2014-07-05-bday-cupcake-tag-ww

I made the tag with watercolor pencils and clear sparkle embossing, then I punch the bottom with my Scallop Border Punch. An then I stamped the happy birthday sentiment using Black Mini Pigment Pad. I used my Craft Heater to dry it quickly because I was in hurry. Do you see that cute big cupcake dimensional sticker? I got that at a scrapbook outlet store in Tennessee (good thing we do not live in that city! LOL!).

The chevron paper I used for the background is from Amy Tangerin – Sketchbook 6×6 paper pad. I added the background on a White Daisy card with 3D foam tape after I wrapped it with the baker’s twine, but not yet tie it up so I can move around to tie the bow later. Then I added the tag with 3D foam tape and then the cupcake dimensional sticker. Then I moved the twine around gently to positioned the bow on the side of the cupcake. Finished 🙂

We had so much fun at the party, basically we spent 6 hours there! Got to see my husband’s side of the family and the girls had a blast swimming with their cousins. At the end of the party everyone was super tired and fell asleep on the way back home.

To summarize, we had a full of fun July 4th weekend! I hope you had a good one too! Thank you for stopping by today!
