After I got my new Color  Brusho from Stampin Up!, I didn’t get a chance to use it.  I had some Color Brusho before, but different colors with Stampin Up‘s.   I just bought some wide mask tape. So I decided to try those Brusho.

I used the mask tape to covered all four edges and lower place that I wanted to stamp sentiment. Then I stamped the flowers randomly on the card and embossed by white embossing powder.

I wet all card by water (I used the watercolor paper). I tapped the Color Brusho on the card. Different place with different colors. Then spayed water again. I used the paper towel to absorb extra water. And repeated all process again until I was satisfied the result.

After dry, I stamped the sentiment and cut off the white edges which covered by mask tape. I used the embossed cardstock under panel. And added some embellishment on the card too.

I chose the white cardbase.

Sushi thank you card made by Belle

Belle 's friends loved her handmade cards. Today she made this Sushi thank you card for her friend. They love to eat sushi and they only know couple Japnese words include this " arigato" that  means thank you. Very funny, she wanted to use this word here. 

She die cut the white panel and colored the sushi set on the other white card by acholol markers. Then cut it out. She likes the clean and neat style. 

She added the pattern paper under the white panel and some sequins (that from my stash).

Thanks a ton!

Belle with me decided to make a shaking card for her friend who loved our handmade cards. It’s first time we make card together. Lovely!

I sponged the sea background and stamped tiny fish groups and sand at the bottom of sea. I also colored one whale and die cut the wonky frame.

Belle continued to add the acetate, sentiment  and sequins to build a shaking card. Then she colored a light whale and glue it on the outside of acetate. She also added some drops around the whale. She decided to add the second whale and cut its tail to make it swimming into the window area. I thought it was great idea.

Finally we added couple sequins on the outside frame to hide the ink smoosh.

Friends make the good time better

I thought I could try to watercolor the Waterfront stamp set to make a card. I knew this stamp set already shows the watercolor result.  But I wanted to make even more watercolor. No too bad to try.

I used the heavy weight watercolor paper. I stamped the land on the card and used brush to melt it. I was not worried about stamp clear or not because of the text of paper.

After dry, I started the palm trees and water. I just added water to my brush. If I liked deep color, I tapped less water. Otherwise I used the more and more water to make water getting lighter. Then I colored sun and sky.

Hi! Hello! How are you?!

I couldn't wait to open my order from Ellen Hutson. I like their Jan. new release. But I was not fast enough to get the matching dies. It's not too bad because the whale is easy to cut out.

I chose the Bristol white paper to build the sea water. I tore the top of paper twice to make waves.

I colored whale and fussy cut out. And I stamped the sand on the bottom of card and group of tiny fish. I glued the whale position looked he said hello to tiny fishes.

Valentine cards series 1– two hearts cards made by small die kit of Spellbinders

After I received Spellbinders January kits, I decided to start creating valentine’s card. My daughter said nobody did valentine’s to give all class In the middle school last year. I thought ok, she grew up. So I donated most of my valentine’s card to children hospital. I will do it this year.

Spellbinders has wonderful dies. I thought their monthly kit it great and price is reasonable. Today’s I used the small kits that included six dies. Only $7.50 plus shipping. I will post link below.

I die cut lager heart wreath on gold shimmer card that bought from local store and white cardstock. I had the left center heart that I used it to make second card.  I also die cut other small flowers and arrow with heart. When I die cut those small pieces, I added the double side adhesive on the top of cardstock. After die cutting, I dipped them in different glitter to make colors. It’s fun process.

Finally I installed every piece on the two cardbase.

Tri-fold Card — Beautiful Friend

When I first saw this stamp and die bundle from Stampin Up Occasion Catalog, I decided to add them to my first order list. Today I tried to play them.  
I used the one piece 8.5x11 cardstock to cut 5" wide, and folded at 3.70". Then turned over the cardstock and folded at 3.70" again. And die cut two windows. It shows like below.

Then I stamped the flower circle on the other white cardstock. After coloring, I used the two dies in the set to cut flower circle out And glued on the front card. 


I stamped the table and chair set on the other white cardstock and colored them. Die cut out and glued on the right side card. 

On the center part, I sponged the sky and stuck the two flower pots on the card that shows through second layer. It looked like standing behind chairs.

Today is all about you

Holiday is over. Back to school, back to work. I sat down and start to think what I like to make today. I wanted something a little different.

After a while, I started my work. I chose the Lindy's gang magic powder for making peacock background. I chose to make the teal color by Tibetan poppy teal and Ponderosa pines olive.

After dry, I used the white embossing powder to emboss the peacock and tails. I chose a oval shape die to cut out peacock.

I picked the light pink cardbase. But I still feel too plain. Then I decided to stamp some images on it.

Sentiment I used the light blue embossing powder that is from my stash.
