Happy Springtime

Hello everyone! Today is the first day of the month again so it’s time for the new challenge at Magnolia Forever. The theme for this month is

The weather is getting hot here in Thailand so I guess springtime has come. I have created a spring-themed card inspired by a new kitten that I recently adopted. I always take her to the field outside my house and she really loves playing there. The card base is a die cut from Magnolia Vintage Box 1 and patterned paper is from Pion Design.

The image is from “Tilda with Spring Flowers” and “Kitty Kit” stamps from Magnolia Spring Fever 2016 collection. I used mirror stamping technique to make the kitten facing Tilda. I colored the image with distress ink as usual.

The sentiment “Happy Day” is Magnolia shadow stamp which I embossed with pastel orange embossing powder.

I also decorated the card with Doohickey Lovely Fence die cut. Adding tiny paper flowers makes this die cut even more cute.
This is my inspiration. I call her “Little Monkey” because she is very naughty.

I would like to enter this card to these challenges.


Thank you for visiting my blog. Happy Springtime!

Hello! Today I have exciting news to share with everyone. After I created this card as a GDT for Paper Nest Dolls, Christine had asked me to join the design team. So I accepted her invitation. And here is another card I made for the Paper Nest Dolls inspirational blog.
PND Will Work for Carrots Center Step Card

I have created a center step card using “Will Work for Carrots” image from February new release. This image is so cute and I think it’s perfect for a fun card with colorful pastel tone. I decorated the card with only few die cuts to stay away from fussy & fancy style.

The image was colored with color pencils. I added pom pom trim around the image to get the look of fluffy bunny.

The bunny and carrots embellishments were made of clay and painted with acrylic paints.

The greeting in the middle was a stamp from Lili of the Valley. The rosette and bunny edge are die cuts from Doohickey volume 8.

CSD February New Release Day 4

Hello crafty friends! Today I would like to show you a card I made with the image from Crafty Sentiments Designs February New Release day 4. This image is called “Tea and TV”. Here is my card featuring this new stamp.
CSD Tea and TV
The idea for this card is that the boy is relaxing, drinking tea and watching TV at home. So I used Wood Grain embossing folder by Sizzix Tim Holtz to create wood texture on kraft paper. Then, I cut the wood texture paper into stripes and attached to the card base to create wood house background. Then, I added minimal decorations with kraft and blue to get relaxation feeling.

The image was colored with pencils. I also colored the image background with brown color to match the wood house.

CSD February New Release Day 2

Hello everyone! Today I have a showcase from Crafty Sentiments Designs February New Release day 2. This image is called “Josh and Gizmo”. Here is my card featuring this new stamp.
CSD Josh and Gizmo

This is such a fun image so I colored the image with pencils in bright color tone. I think this boy must be very happy spending time relaxing with his dog on the sunny day and it would be wonderful to capture this memory into the photo. So I added the photo frame around the image and decorated the card with colorful flowers and die cuts like camera, filmstrip, clouds, and sunshine. These die cuts are from Doohickey, Sizzix Tim Holtz, Technique Tuesday, and Die-Versions.

Since it’s the image of a boy, I want to make this card colorful but simple without too many decorations.

Romantic Cats

Hello crafty friends! A few months ago, I was the winner at Paradise of Magnolia challenge so I got invited to be the GDT for February challenge. The theme for this month is

This theme is very challenging for me since I love to work with Magnolia stamps. I like to stamp out the images and coloring them. But this theme is totally different. I looked through all the Magnolia Doohickey dies I had then I came up with this idea. Since I’m a cat love and Magnolia has some of cat die cuts, I combine those dies into this card.

Most of die cuts in this card are from Magnolia Doohickey except the word “Love” which is from Simon Says Stamp. I also used Brick Pattern stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop to create the wall of the house. All Doohickey dies are listed below.
  • Doohickey Volume 4 – Window, Big & Small Flowers, Shovel
  • Doohickey Volume 8 – Sleeping Cat, Grass
  • Doohickey Volume 10 – Sun, Honeycomb Balloon
  • Vintage Box Volume 1 - Butterflies
  • Paris Night (Sitting Cat)
  • Lovely Fence
  • Cloud & Flag
  • Insta Love Cam (Hearts)

I really love the scene with 2 cats together. I think they are so sweet and romantic.

Both cats are inspired by my cat couple. At first, I wasn’t sure to use orange color for the female cat because most ginger cats are male. However, I decided to use the colors as my cat couple, male blue and female ginger cats.

I would like to enter this card to these challenges.

I hope you like this card as much as I do. Thank you for stopping by.
