Celebrate You


I have a special card for you today. My first entry to the new challenge I've launch called 'An e-Pic Challenge'.

I am entering to card to CASology: Cue Card; YOU and to An ePic Challenge #1

Inspiration details for the ePic Challenge: 
- The texture and curve of the plate
- the Colours: White, Pink, Orange and Brown

The how-to:
- I traced the edge of the dinner plate and cut it down.
- Stamped with White ink.
- Sprinkled Stamp & Bond (powder glue) and heated it with my heat tool. This become all gluey
- Sprinkled glitter on that edge.
- Stamped the balloons, sentiment. The first balloon went through the same glittery process as the edge too

What went in
- Stamps: Papertrey & Clearly Besotted (the 'you' was cut out from a 'thank you' sentiment)
- Inks: Memento & Colorbox White
- Stamp & Bond, and Heat tool
- A dash or creativity and a lot of soul :)

Thanks for stopping by and here is to Celebrating You! God bless.

A shaped Mini Birthday Book for a sweet girl

A friend’s little girl turned 11. Not a little girl anymore. Not a grown up one either.

Here is a mini book I made for her.

I used the Flower shaped album by Sizzix. These make the process super easy.

I die cut chipboard twice, and then Fabriano card stock 6 pieces and DCWV paper 12 in number. Remember that half of these will have to but upside down – to help cover both sides.

Then I went to town with stamping.

Oh stamping.. stamping.. How I doeth love thee. If I were Shakespeare, probably that might have been my sonnet :)

Now this page. This is top most favourite page. Ever. The stamps are from this HUGE Waltzing Mouse stamp set called Pint size Heroines.

Tell her how so very precious she is. How much you love her.

These are three tags, for the mum, dad and bro to write notes for her. The left side stamps & dies are from Sizzix. The right tags die cut using Sizzix dies. And stamps are from Hero Arts.

Love Actually

Hello there.. hope you are well and this New Year brings you abundant blessings.

I made this “Mini Card-Book” – which is a kind of a .. sort of a.. cross between a card and a scrapbook :) This form satisfies my love for stamping, and open a brand new canvas to, well, more stamping per card. Win Win I say :)

Love Actually – from that sweet movie :)

Sizzix dies and some DCWV aplhas.
