Now I know challenge is really challenge. My Facebook group has 15 days 15 cards challenge. Today is third day. I started to feel pressure. I told myself "You can do it." Even I know I will be getting more and more busy with school starting next week. Anyway, I do my best.

I had this card's idea long time ago. I don't know why I delayed to make this card until today. I used stamp set Always & Forever.

I stamped the wood on the whisper cardstock by early espresso. Then I used watercolor brush to color the wood by crumb cake. I used the real red to color the hearts and added the gloss accent. After coloring, I fussy cut the wood.

I took other white cardstock. I used the post note to cover the card to make sky and meadow.  Marina Mist for sky and Pear Pizzazz for meadow. When I sponged the color for sky, I used the MFT cloud stencil to add some cloud in the sky.

Finally I glue the wood on the card and stamped the heart above it. At the end I stamped the sentiment on the card.

This is what I made today. Hope you like it.

Hope it's a wonderful day in your...

When I first saw somebody made a winter card by using this Lovely as a Tree stamp set, I fell in love with it. But after I bought it, I only used it once as Christmas cards for teachers. Until yesterday  for a group challenge, I decided to use it again. So this was I made today.

Last time I made a winter card, white and snow winter time. Now it's summer, I wanted made something different. I looked out of window. It's cloudy. It's humid and hot day. I thought I really wanted that rain could came to drop the temperature. But I waited all day, it's still no rain. Then when I made this card at the end, I sprayed sparkling shimmer on the all of card. It looked like wet water on it. So I thought rain was in my mind. I calmed down to enjoy my card.

This card was easy to made. I stamped the trees first. Then I stamped some leaves under the tree by second generation stamp. I wanted just light leaves for background.

Second I started to sponged color on the sky and ground. Then I used Q-tip to add shadow under the tree. I wanted them standing there not floating in the air.

At the end I sprayed sparkling mist on the card. And tapped a paper towel to absorb it. The card looked like had rain scene. I was satisfied. I used stitched rectangle die cut it a little smaller than cardbase.

Finally I glued it on the cardbase. Simple! Done!

Since I watched Barbara Grey's videos, I was attracted by her amazing works. I checked her UK website, joined the stamp club and sent my order. It's amazing. I started my international shopping. I received my happy mail last week. I chose this my favorite stencil and stamp set to create my card.

I will say the stencil is quite large then I thought even I know the its size measures. But I like what I made. I copied Barbara 's idea to make mountains and flying boy.

I left the stencil over the white cardstock and used the mask tape to stick both cardstock and stencil. My old makeup brush became my favorite tool for background coloring. For ink I chose the Distress ink.

I tore the copy paper to make the mountain from bottom to center. Color was from deep to light. I punched a 1"circle on post note paper and stuck the position that I wanted it was sun. Then I started to build sky.

After this, I took off stencil. I stamped the flying boy, birds and sentiment.

I paint the canvas panels night blue color for background. And glue the my work on it.

Hello sunshine

Come with BoHo flower kit from Gina K. Designs, I also bought some other stamp sets. Theresa Momber is one of my favor designer. I like to watch her videos. She made wonderful scene cards.
I always tried to copy her card. But I am still learning.

Today's card I used her designed tropical skies stamp set. I didn't use sponge for coloring like her. I chose to use my new Dr. Ph. Martin watercolor. I will say this watercolor set is so good and easy to apply. Special for me, I don't have many experience for watercolor. But I do love watercolor paint. Maybe because it's closed to traditional Chinese paint.

I used the thick watercolor paper and stamped large frame stamp with coconut(or plum) trees. I wet the all white area first, then added colors. After dry, I added second time colors. This time I used the sticky note pad to cover lower part of card. I colored mountain by light navy blue color.

After my card totally dry, I stamped small island used second generation stamp technique to light it. It looked far form me. Also I stamped sea birds and sentiment.

I didn't want to keep the frame on this card. So I trimmed four edges. I glued card to black cardstock, just left a tiny edge that you can see. Then used foam tape to mount on cardbase.

You are so amazing

Today I is my secondcard that I make by flower stencil and BoHo kit from Gina K. designs. I feel I always like to make some cards using the same stamp/die/stencil. After several times, I stopped and moved to new things.

I tried using different technique to make card this time. I saw Stamp TV's the new challenge is about doing Gradient Background. I thought I could try it. This is a one layer card.

First, I die cut a you from BoHo kit as a mask. Then I used the mask tape to cover the four edges of card. I also stuck the you on the card with removable glue tape. 

Next, I covered the flower stencil on the card. I still used my old makeup brush to add the color on the card. I felt the soft makeup brush was so easy to control. I didn't care the color was lighter than by sponged. The picture didn't grab the best color. The actual card are soft and beautiful. 

After adding color, I moved the stencil and mask tape. Also I moved the die cute piece you. I stamped the you by black ink on the die cut position. It was perfect match. 

I stamped the are so amazing on the black card stock and embossed with white embossing powder. 

Finally, I glued the shiny stone on the center of flower.

You make me simle

I received my order from Gina K. designs new release yesterday. BoHo kit is very cute and useful. Special I liked big You and sentiment so much. It is very useful. I can use it anywhere. Also big You die is wonderful match with boho stamp set.

So today I decided to use this You die and other stencil that I bought to make a card.

First, I used the NUVO Embellishment Mousse and stencil to make beautiful and shiny background. After it dry, I used my old makeup brush dust some match color from Distress Ink on the card. Because I didn't like the blank space to bright white. I liked it was soft.
Then I die cut the big detail You on black cardstock. I cut four times. Then I glued them together. I wanted to make a dimension but I couldn't use the foam tape because it was too thin. Four layers was good enough.

I stamped the "make me smile" on the black cardstock and used white embossing powder to embossed it.

I felt I didn't like the edge. After using mousse, the edge looked too rough. So I decided to add a frame on it. It felt much better.

All cardstock I used from BoHo kit.

Thanks for always being here

Since last time I used my old makeup brush to create the card " Enjoy your vacation", I found old makeup brushes were good to use on a card making. It blended very well.

Today I used this technique again. I chose Gina K. Designs the Through Thick and thin large flower stamp to make today's card.

Today I had a tip for embossing. I used two layers embossing power for my card. I put my cardstock in a Mini Misti.  I stamped by versamarker ink pad for embossing. First layer, I used the white embossing powder and heat it to stay. Then I stamped by Versamarker Ink Pad again to emboss second layer. For second layer, I used the Ranger Holographic embossing power to add shiny on the flower. It's hard to show on picture, but it's very pretty on actual card.

After heat and embossing, I started to add color to my card. I used the Distress Ink Aged Mahogany and Peeled Paint to color my card.  For flower, I started the center to edge. The color changed from deep to light. For leaves, I started the top edge which is close the flower.

After all, I stamped the sentiment and added the Nuvo Jewels Drops on the card. I mounted it to a Gina K. black onyx cardbase.

This card is simple but pretty.

Then put the Gelli gel printing plate on the card, looked like using Misti to stamp a image by ink. I didn't this twice. I used watercolor paper.

I waited it dry thoroughly. Normally I don't use heat gun to dry a card except  I want a splashed result  or I am hurry to do something. But mostly it can't happen because I will leave it for later. I am enjoyed card making, not have to finish the product.

After dry thoroughly, I cut th paper to 4x5.25. I left the below edge. I stamped flowers on the card and added clear embossing powder to embossed. I want my flowers shiny bright and a little pop out. I added the Nuvo jewel drops on the center of flowers. I used foam tape to mount the sentiment. Also I used the blueprint colored the edge.

I mix gold, silver and copper colors of Nuvo Gilding Flakes in one box.  I took off other side adhesive cover sheet. I covered all adhesive surface by those mixed flakes. Then rubbed by my finger. I put the extra flakes back to the box for next time use. And then I dusted the surface of card by a brush. Turned over I saw this amazing result.

Birthday card made by Belle

One of the Belle's best friends' 12th birthday is coming. She decided to make a birthday card for her.

She used her favorite Lawn Fawn How you bean bundles to make this birthday card. To her this card is easy to make, but I like her idea for making those shiny star by herself. I like to share how she make those stars.

She used the copy paper (not cardstock) , put glue all the paper and drop the glitter she chose on it. Let it dry thoroughly. She waited one night. Next day she used the star die in this bundle to die cut all star. Those stars are not only shiny but also texture. They have 3D result. I like her idea.

The rest of thing was normal. Die cut jar, lid and beans. Colored them and glue on the card. She did a little black ink on the card. She was upset, but I thought it's ok. Her friend will still love it because Belle made it from her heart.

Finally she decided used the flower ribbon to cover some. That's good enough!

Supplies that She used:

Think of You

Last Friday night we I talked with my mom, I thought I could do something simple together. I decided to make a background using Distress Oxide Ink. Mostly time I use Distress ink by sponging. This time I chose the watercolor swash and spritz technique. It's easy and fun. I could make a card background with talking with my mom at the same time.

I chose the Distress Oxide Ink wilted violet, fossilized amber, spiced marmalade and broken china. I put every color I chose one the craft sheet and sprayed water on it. Then I put my card on the colors and smashed and picked up. I got what I wanted. If not, I could  repeat. I let the card dry naturally.

Today I thought can use this background to make a card. I picked up Hero art wood mount stamp dandelion.

I cut the card to small piece. Then I put the white linen texture cardstock underneath and I stamped dandelion. So the part of flower stem will on the white card. I sprayed the frost on the colorful background. Let it dry. Then i used foam tape to mount on the linen card. I didn't put it on the center of white card. I left some space for die cut hello. I used very thin copper threads to tie a bow and glue on the stem and dropped a Nuvo jewel droplet on it.

I stamped sentiment. Also glue the hello on the side. Added some Nuvo jewel drops to card. Finally I mounted card to a black card base by foam tape.

Enjoy your vacation

This weekend when I cleaned my drawer, I found this cruise wood mount stamp. I had no idea when and where I bought this stamp. It's brand new, never used. So I thought maybe I can try it. Then I made this card.

I stamped the cruise ship on the white cardstock. Then I made the mask to cover it. Also I made 1" circle to mask area I planned for sun. Then I started made sky at first. Today I didn't used the spong. I used a old cheaper makeup brush to brush sky and sea. I used Distress ink broken china for sky and blueprint sketch for sea. Around sun and below ship I used the scattered strew and worn lipstick.

Then I colored ship using distress markers which I had it long time ago from Hobby Lobby clearance.  Then I tore the paper to make a mask for mountains. I covered upside by tored paper and below used paper line. Between this two paper leave some space that I sponged for mountain. I used the black ink to sponge this area. After took of the cover paper, I got the mountain shape that looked like behind the shop.

Finally I stamped sea birds and sentiment. This is simple card that I made. I think I still I have a lof space to progress. Maybe next time. Today here is it.

Friend -- Distress Oxide Ink background

After I bought bundle of Distress Oxide Ink 1st release. I only used two colors. I don't know why. Maybe I just used to regular Distress ink. I used regular one more often. This weekend whenI cleaned my draw, I found some of my Distress Oxide Ink still in package. I thought I should use them. It is more easy to blend than regular one.

Then I made this card today. Later I will use leftover to make another card.

I sponged two Distress Oxide Ink wilted violet and spiced  marmalade on the watercolor paper. Then I slashed water on the card and used the paper towel cover it to move away some ink color. I sprayed the shimmer on it. And let it dry. This is my background card.

I wanted to mak second card for my sentiment. I put different color on the craft sheet. Sprayed water on it. And I smashed card on it to get different looks. I repeated many times to get what I wanted. After drying, I used MFT Friend die cut the word.

I used Lawn Fawn stitched hills die and rectangle die to cut background card edges. Glued it on the cardbase. I glued the sentiment Friend on the card and added the shimmer on each letter. I felt its color too close the background color. I wanted it popped up. So I used fine purple gel pen to drew the line along the letters. Then added some gum drops from your next stamp. Finally I wanted to add something on the card. I splashed the water color on the card. Also randomly added the glue on card and glued glitter on it.
