The Sugar Bowl Challenge #6

I created this card using my favourite Sugar Nellie Stamp above! Isn’t that little girl so sweet. Mum loves flowers these days, never failing to go to the market on weekends to buy flowers for the house and the little girl looking on at the flowers reminds me of Mum and her flowers!

This card bears a simple design but took me quite a bit of effort. I don’t have such a huge circle punch or ribbon punches so I had to draw out a circle using a compass and cut it out! I decided my cutting sucks so I had to cover the sides of the circle with that cute frilly ribbon. I am not sure if it’s that obvious but the image of the stamp is made on the inside of the card. That’s what the circle is for! LOL!!! The sentiment is from PaperTrey Ink. For my mother’s day card…

Overall, I’m quite pleased with the end results cos’ I took only 2 hours to finish it, very therapeutic despite the cold I’m nursing!


Cupcake Craft Challenge #31

This is for Cupcake Craft Challenge #31- Brown + 1 Pink/ Blue/ Green. I meant to try to submit this for their design team call as well but I realised I just missed the dateline already. But in any case, I did not have a camera with me to take pics of the card I made as my girlfriend who was visiting Shanghai took mine when she went around town.

Stamps are all from Technique Tuesday’s Little Prince and I added the little key charm at the ribbon. It’s so cute…I paper pieced the little prince’s cloak. Overall, I quite like the card except for my coloring. I did this while watching the last few episodes of ‘Little Nonya’ (a hit TV drama series in Singapore which I only managed to lay my hands on the dvd during our last home visit). Must have been too agitated by the ending and my runny nose from my cold, not the tears to color in properly! LOL! Oh wells, will try harder next time!

Cute Card Thursday Challenge #51

This is my take for Cute Card Thursday Challenge #51. Its their birthday week and there are loads of prizes for grabs. The theme is on celebration and I liked the sketch very much. It gave me the idea to make a bookmark together with the tag for my girl’s classmate. She is a good reader at 5 and loves reading, spelling and talking. Her birthday is just around the corner so this card shall go together with her present- a book, of course!

I found the big felt flower in a market here. There were 8 of them stringed together like some hanging ornament, but I just stripped them out and used them for my crafts. They make good embellishments especially if u want to draw attention to something, but because there are so many flowers and I wanted focus on the girl, I toned down my sentiment and just stamped ‘Hugs’. The sentiment stamp is from my Clear Dollar Stamp collection and the girl is from Whiff of Joy’s Spring Kit!!!

I am to rest now…feeling off color…change of seasons…too many visitors…sleepless nights cos’ of the young ones waking…

This is so sweet – great colour combo

That’s such a fabulously sweet card!!!! Wow!!!! Totally heart the colors and that felt flower!!!

It’s really amazing how we can find things in our everyday life and use them as part of our SB works!!!

Hip hip hooray!!!

I just wanna share that I received my parcel from Ericia of YSS!!! She has been so sweet, tracking the parcel for me, apologising over and over again and updating me whenver she has news and finally re-sending the parcel when it was sent back to her in a battered state. In my anxiety and excitement, I jsut ripped open the box and forgot completely about pictures! I send Ericia an e-mail immediately to thank her and share my joy at finally receiving my parcel. Order was placed early december if I remembered correctly and it took 4 months to finally reach!!! Thank you Ericia!!!

Friday Sketchers #42

This is my take on the card sketch #42 by Friday Sketchers. It is really very sweet and girly so I thought I would do a ‘congratulations’ card for a friend who is due to deliver her second baby girl next week. I met Wing at a summer camp class that I had signed up for Asher and myself last summer. It turned out we were living around the same estate and subsequently, both our kids went to the same playgroup class and we met again! Wing has been really helpful, offering me lifts for marketing sometimes especially since she knows we do not have our own transport.

I used the ‘Postbox’ Sugar Nellie stamp for the image. I must confess that I am not a ‘girly girl’ kind of person but I was totally impressed by this range of stamps from Sugar Nellie. The images are so sweet and lifelike and well- drawn. Its no wonder that their popular stamps are sold out almost all the time! Another plus, I like the size of their images too!

Back to the challenge, I have inverted the sketch 90 degrees anti- clockwise and replaced the flower motif with a cute romper sticker I found amongst my old stash again! So I am definitey feeling satisfied that I have been using up stash in my current projects…I stamped on the florishes at the sides too…hmmm, love the birds there.
