A "Thank You" Card

Hi again! Maybe you are wondering why I have another post today..It's what I call Posting Marathon! hah! No one says it's bad to have several posts for a day..so I'm doing it so..haha!

To be serious, I should have posted this one yesterday but the electricity came down and I have nothing to do but sigh..thinking..."I'm a blogger, and I have this really strong mood to blog today..why, in so many times in this particular day..why does it have to be now that this "nice" electrical thingy be done?" *lol*

So for today (again!) I would like to share to you a card I specially done for the Card Creations: Favorite Occasions Challenges over at Moxie Fab World.  Maybe you are looking for some card challenges, I suggest you visit Cath in her nice little blog-o.

This card is for the "Thank You" card challenge....



Lately, I learned how to make my cards simple and just using minimal stuff to complete one.  For this card, I decided to use my Hero Arts Dots Background using Versa Mark Ink in Magenta...not the typical patterned paper backgrounds I used to do. I adhered a pink cardstock strip for a simple layer and stamped a sentiment also from Hero Arts..For accent, I used a glittery flower sticker,added a button for center and finish off with a transparent butterfly.

I know you had enough of me today.(wink)!  Have a nice day ahead...Please leave some love!

 

A Card Challenge

Happy Friday everyone! How are you today? Did you do any crafty project lately? Well for me, I've been busy with the contest I told you about in my earlier post and some card challenges I sooooo love to try every week.

Have you visited the Moxie Fab World lately? Well,if you haven't yet why don't you stop by over there and fill yourself with soooo muuuccchhh inspiration to start you crafting today. And also Cath is having this wonderful challenges over there to celebrate the release of their new Card Creations issue--The Favorite Occasions.

Also, I have seen this card challenge over at Get Sketchy and thought I'd use the nice sketch they have there..If you want a dose of a nice card sketches with a challenge to go with it..you should go over their site and spark up your creating mood! For this challenge, I am using their sketch # 67 right here...



So for today, I am sharing to you this nice little card I made for Card Creations--Favorite Occasion; ALL Occasion Challenge..

Presenting......



Would you agree with me if I say that this card is "lovely"? Simple but charming...and sooo easy to make..remember those rolled papers flowers I showed you on my earlier post? It's the same technique I used here but just cut  this one with a scalloped scissor..making it cuter than the first ones I showed you...
I sprayed some glimmer mist before adhering the butterfly with foam tape to make it look like flying from the row of flowers..and see those butterfly trace? I used Basic Grey pearls. The sentiment stamp is from Hero Arts and used a black ink from Versa Mark.

here's for a closer look...




Thanks for stopping by today! And why not try these challenges yourself? You will never go wrong with a nice sketch and a wonderful theme! Please leave some love!

A "Fantasy" Park

Hi everyone! I'd like to share this LO I did just last night (the one that kept me busy and missed day 2 of 'Tis The Season Blog Hop) I am particularly proud of this LO because it's one of my entries for a contest which I hope would give me a post as a DT in one of the sites I frequent. Well, I'm praying for it. But if it will not be for me yet, it will just be ok. The important thing is, I tried my luck! LOL!

So here's the LO I'm talking about....


The rule of the contest is, to have a makeover of an old LO. May it be changing the color theme or the layout but mainly using the same picture.

For a closer look on details...



Here is the original LO I chose to have do a makeover...


My makeover is from a graphic LO, I made my updated version with a FANTASY style.making a "fantasy" park which fits the picture..What a HUGE makeover! What do you think? would love to hear from you...

Thank you for stopping by today....hope you have a great day!

'Tis The Season Blog Hop--Day 1


Hi everyone!  It's December already and it means that all of us are going to be busy as a bee when it comes to preparing for the Holidays..

This particular December also happens to be a great month for me because I was able to sign myself for a Blog Hop! Yes, indeed! A BLOG HOP! My first ever blog hop..so isn't that a great thing to be excited about!  This hop was particularly organized by Iva. I am sooo grateful that I met her in one of the blogs I am visiting, opening an opportunity for me to join the hop.  So if you want to start the Blog Hop just go to Iva's site and you'll be on the right track. And maybe you've seen the little project that Ellen Mandris did before you come here...are you enjoying already?

So for today, I will be sharing a nice little project that you can do this holiday season. I've been wanting to do this project since October but wasn't able to do until this Hop.



I love gift boxes..especially one that is handmade. This one was sooo easy to make and will not take you half an hour to assemble everything. The box measures 4 inches wide and 2 inches deep,perfect for those little presents for Christmas. I used this amazing template which is very easy to use.



For this project you will only be needing 2 patterned papers (or 1 patterned, one solid as I did here) some nice ribbon, little ornaments, ink and stamp. I used Hero Arts on this one and some Martha Stewart rhinestones.  If you want your box to be bigger, you'll just have to add up some inches to the original measurement in the pattern. Surely, I will be making more of this...hope you try it too!

My next project is a little nice card using a non-Holiday (Christmas) stamp from Hero Arts (starburst).



I first wanted to have a nice focal point in my card so I decided to use the Starburst stamp from Hero Arts.  I stamped the image thrice with a Brilliance Ink in Pink, then cut the first image in full, then cutting the second image leaving behind the outer layer, and cutting the last image with only the inner layer of the flower. I adhered every layer with a foam tape, finishing it off with a red pebble...and viola! A nice layered flower!



I also used some pearls from Basic Grey for accent. The leaves stamp is from Fancy Pants..and you may notice the sentiments..haha! My own handwriting!  My own personal touch.

Hope you liked my projects. Please leave some love at the comments section. It would be greatly appreciated.
 
So for the next step on this Blog Hop, go visit Molly Ambriz and I'm sure she prepared something nice for you today.

Thank you for stopping by. God Bless and have a nice Blog Hopping Day!
