Snowy Hug Step Card

Hello crafty friends! Today there is a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps. The theme is
To match the challenge theme, I have created a step card using Magnolia “Snowy Hug” stamp from Merry Little Christmas 2010 collection. I wanted the winter scene on the step side so I added snowy pine trees behind Tilda and snowman. I used EK Success punch and Doohickey die to cut out those trees. Then, I applied snow paste on the bottom of the card to create snow texture on the ground.

I decorated the snowy ground with snowflake confetti and some sequins.

On the left hand side, I added a sentiment from LOTV stamp and heat embossed the text with white embossing powder. Then, I decorated with die cuts from Doohickey Vol 12 (Snowman), Vol 7 (Icicle), and snowflake.

I think this new release collection is perfect for pastel colors. So I used mint-peach color combo for this card. To get soft and sweet image coloring, I colored the stamped image with color pencils that I just recently practiced using them. The flags and alphabets die cuts are from Magnolia and Die-Versions. I finally added some ribbons and sequins to finish this CAS card.

Sparkle New Year

Happy New Year everyone! I wish you all a happy crafty year with lots of energy and creativity.

Let’s begin this year with the new challenge at Magnolia Forever. This year we have changed our challenge into a monthly basis with more sponsors for each challenge. The theme for this month challenge is

Since I’m in the mood for New Year celebration, I’ve created a sparkle double-star shaped card using two Magnolia stamps. They are “Tilda with Holiday Sweater” and “Singing Napoleon” stamps from Aspen Holidays 2016 collection. To create a mood for celebration party, I’ve hand-drawn a party hat for Tilda so that it looks like she is having fun with her cat. The Star shape is from Little B dies and star trellis die cut is from Doohickey Box Vol 10.

The banner is also from Magnolia Doohickey. The sentiment is from LDRS. They are currently having a huge bargain including this sentiment stamp set.

Year in Review 2016

Hello everyone!

Today is the last day of 2016. It’s been another wonderful year for me. I’ve had a lot of fun creating projects for many challenge blogs. I love to try new things. To make each of my projects unique, sometimes it’s been challenging to find new inspirations. But I’ve found it fun to do and that’s how I broaden my crafting skills. However, I still keep practicing on every creations I’ve made.  

All of my projects in 2016 are featured in the video below.

In 2017, I’m sure there will be new things to explore. I hope it will be another great year for me.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a wonderful year ahead. All the best in everything.


Happy New Year 2017!

My 2017 Planner

Hello crafty friends! It is almost the last day of 2016. Time has gone so fast. Today it’s also my turn to share a project for inspiration at Storie di Timbri blog.

I have prepared myself for the coming 2017 with this project. It is 2017 monthly planner to help me schedule crafting projects. I have printed out monthly calendar into the booklet so my planner is in A5 size. I folded the papers in half and punched the holes along the folded line. Then, I stitched all pages together using chainstitch bookbinding technique.

I have decorated the planner cover with two magnolia stamps. They are “Santa on Christmas Eve” stamp from So Jolly Under the Mistletoe 2009 collection and “Winter Night Background” stamp from Winter 2008 collection. The stamped images were colored with distress ink. I decorated the cover with few only embellishments so that I could write on the left pages easily. Here is my handmade planner.

Inside the planner, it is monthly calendar.

I used chainstitch bookbinding technique which I had learned from a workshop last year.

I would like to enter my project to these challenges.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful holiday!
