Dreaming Of A Pink Birthday

Anyone Dreaming Of A Pink Birthday? Well I am. A pink theme birthday party, which pink lover would say no to it.

I am supposed to focus on making Christmas cards, but somehow or rather I end up making more handmade birthday cards instead.

Dreaming Of A Pink Birthday


DREAMING OF A PINK BIRTHDAY

I made this card yesterday. I used a light green 14.5cm x 14.5cm card as base. Then I layered it with a rose pattern card taken from Vintage Colors Romance design pad from Craft Sensations. I cut the pattern card to a size 14cm x 14cm.

Next I cut the same shade of light green card, this time to a smaller size of 10cm x 10cm and layered it with with a striped pattern card from the same design pad. For the background of the Happy Birthday  die cut sentiment, again I used the same light green card which I embossed and cut into a scalloped circle shape.

Night Version
I stamped some pink flowers using Dreamees stamps (one of my favourite) and glued them at the corners with some die cut leaves. And for the final touch, I added some pink pearls to go along with the pink shade of patterned cards.

When Autumn Leaves Start To Fall

When Autumn Leaves Start To Fall that's what I called Autumn Blessing. Finally my orange cards are coming to good use. I have loads of them, but all this while those orange cards are seated untouched in my stacks of cards.



We don't have the four seasons in Malaysia. No Autumn leaves are gonna fall. But since we have sun and rain all through the year, you see falling leaves all through out the year too.

WHEN AUTUMN LEAVES START TO FALL

I used a darker shade of orange card as base. I then layered it white a black card and a lighter shade of orange card. Both cards are embossed using the Glitter Girls Fanciful board.

I then stamped and die cut three different shapes of autumn leaves using an orange card, a lighter shade of orange and a yellow card.



For the sentiment, I die cut and embossed using a die that came along with my Spellbinder's Sapphire and tied a red ribbon to it. And finally I stamped Autumn Blessings as my sentiment for this autumn leaf card.

See you in my next post... Craft With Love

Love In Rose Garden

Love In Rose Garden is another square handmade card with a floral theme. To be specific, a paper rose theme. With 'Lots of Love' as it's sentiment, this card is suitable not only for birthdays but also for anniversaries or just to tell someone how much they are loved.

Love In Rose Garden


I am not sure If I had mention it earlier, but a couple of weeks back I won some lovely digital stamps from Limited Runs for The Cute Fox Cub Christmas Card and also I won a giveaway from The Ribbon Girls Blog. I had this lovely gift below.



Love In Rose Garden
I used a pink 14 x 14 card as base and layered it with a 13 x 13 black card. I then layered a 12 x 12 pink shade polka dot card on top of the black card. I embossed and hand card two different sizes of scalloped circle, using the same pink and black card that I used as base. And I stamped a 'Lots Of Love' sentiment on it. This lovey sentiment stamp is from Dreamees.

I diecut some green leaves, 8 to be specific and also rolled some paper roses. 11 paper roses of two shades and two different sizes and assembled them together with the leaves.

To give this card a glamourous look, I added some sparkle /shiny stickers. Again using two different size to decorate my Love In Rose Garden card.



Until my next post...always Craft With Love

Hugs And Birthday Wishes

Hugs And Birthday Wishes to every September baby especially to those celebrating their birthday today. I have not updated for more than two weeks.Was enjoying the SEA Games on TV but nothing can keep me away from crafting. I did complete a few projects  but the only thing is I couldn't find the time to update and share it here will all of you.

Now that the SEA Games are over with Malaysia being at the top of the medal tally with 145 gold medal (Yeayyyy) I am back my daily routine. It has been raining since last night but looks like Mr Sun is back at work now.  A long break over here. Everyone enjoying their long weekend with extra 3 days holiday.



HUGS AND BIRTHDAY WISHES

I am really excited to share this square Hugs And Birthday Wishes card that I made. Its the first time I am using this Dreamees stamp and I must confess that I fell in love with how clear the pattern comes out each time I stamped it. I must thank my Godmama for my first Dreamees stamp for my birthday present. I am a September baby too. It was and advance birthday present since my birthday is only on the 25 of September.

I used a white 14.5 x 14.5 card as base. I then layered it with a 13.5 x 13.5 patterned card from the Vintage Colors Romance pad from Craft Sensations. Using the same card, I stamped 5 flowers of 3 different sizes using Dreamees stamps set. I then diecut some green leaves from two different dies from M&C Boutique.



I then glued all the flowers and leaves on a border oval shape die cut pattern. I used some pearls for the center of the flowers and also some some art stickers for the corner of the card.  I stamped a Hugs, Kisses and Birthday Wishes sentiment at the middle of the card and added a tiny butterfly as the finishing touch.

Until my next update, Craft With Love.

Flying In The Winter

Hello Craft Lovers,

Taking some free time to share my third handmade Christmas Card. This time I started with a winter theme in mind. Again its something simple, no hand colouring just cutting and pasting.

Flying In The Winter

Flying In The Winter

I used a yellow cardstock for base. The main feature for this card is a picture of a little bird in the winter. I cut it round and matched it with a black and yellow circular shaped that I embossed and cut. I also die cut 3 sets of poinsettia flowers.

Handmade Christmas card


I wanted this card to have a different fold, instead of the ordinary square or rectangle so I folded the front into two. And glued the poinsettias in a row...to make that card stand in a triangular dimension.

christmas card ideas

There you go, my third handmade christmas card with a winter theme. Looks like I got no choice but to find more time to craft. I have a few orders to complete and looking forward to make some handmade gifts as well.

Until then, Craft With Love.

May Your Christmas Be Bright

Hello Craft Lovers,

Hope your day have been crafty and fun. Its raining heavily outside. Just my favourite weather to craft. I planned to make at least two christmas cards today. But before I sit and craft away, I better share with you the 2nd handmade Christmas card that I made a few days back.

May Your Christmas Be Bright

For this card, I used a white border card from Create and Craft. Then I layered it with a green emboss scalloped shaped frame using the Auspicious embossing board from Glitter Girls.

May Your Christmas Be Bright


Then on a red card I embossed a candle shape using the Christmas Impression board. I wanted this card to be simple, so I didn't pay much attention to the flame.

Handmade Poinsettia


I die cut two sets of poinsettia flowers and glued it just below the candles and used some border stickers to highlight the candle.  And finally I used stickers for the Merry Christmas and Season's Greeting's sentiment.

That's all for today's card. Craft with love everyone
