Admit One : Ticket to Happiness

Happy Wednesday to y'all!

It has been a good week so far and I'm back with another card using some new stuff. For this card, I'm using paper by Terresa Collins (black houndstooth) and American Crafts (my October Afternoon paper seriously need a break *grin*). I cut a tag from kraft paper and stamped the PTI text background using distress ink. Then, I cut the green polka dots paper into strips, distress the edges and curmpled. Notice that cute lil birdie perched on a branch? It's a digital stamp by Tiffany Doodles. Tiffany (the owner) is surely talented and has lots to offer in her store that you should really check it out!! You won't want to miss this!
I print out the bird image on a cream cardstock, fussy cut and accent it with lots of glitter glue. It doesn't really show in the picture but it looks very glittery in real life.

I hope you are enjoying your day! Got to get back to work now :)

I love butterfly!

Hey there! I'm happy to say that I have a card to share with you all today. It feels good when this happen. Last week, I have zero creativity but this week I can feel that my mojo has started to flow back into my life. Slowly but surely :) Let's get into today's card, shall we?

Actually I don't have the intention to make anything yesterday as I only had 3 hours of sleep the night before. Thought of going to bed early but a girl got to do what a girl's got to do *grin*. With that in mind, I went into my craft room aka store room and made a super quick card. I think I made this under half an hour without a sketch. Yay...a pat on my back :) Can see all the PTI goodness on this card? Love it! I also paired with the butterfly lace cardstock by Creative Imaginations. Isn't it perfect for the butterfly stamp?

I hope you enjoy today's card! See ya!

You Light Up My Life!

Hello ladies!! I know I disappeared from the blog world for five days and it feels great to be back! Oh...I miss y'all! My mojo wandered quite far this time and only returned on last Friday. Just in time for me to create a card :)

Today's card featured the cute hot air ballons stamp by Practicng Creativity! I paired it with paper from My Mind's Eye because I thought the color is perfect for the background. To create the clouds cut out, first I stamped the clouds image on a piece of rustic cream cardstock and cut the outline using a craft knife. Simple card in an hour :)

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day ahead!

A gift for a special friend.........

Hello there! I hope you are having a great day! Mine is not that great....I'm losing my mojo this week. Oh boy! If you found it, please return to me :) Seriously, I'm not in the mood of creating this week and I need to do some blog hopping to get my mojo back. Did this ever happen to you? It's not fun at all.

Anyways, let me share with you the card I made last weekend a special friend whom are very dear to me. I can't share too much here because she reads my blog. I just hope she likes it :)

I hope you are not sick of me using OA paper for most of my projects. I can't help it :) And ohh....I finally used the artisan tape by Pink Paislee and I LOVE it! Love the big Prima flower? It was given to me by my sweet babe, Jessy! I just adore this gal! We do chat on the phone every once in a while and the conversation usually last more than half an hour. We are chatty, aren't we?

The cup with a matching box. I just add a Prima flower and two stick pins by Making Memories.

That's all I have for today. Let's hope I'll get my mojo back and you shall see some update from me.

Happy Monday!

I have not been very productive over the weekend and only created two cards. And I'm here to share one of them with you. I wanted to do the weekly product feature but I find it difficult to use just one product for the whole week. Yeah...I can only do that with October Afternoon. You can call me bias :) But I do remember I have stuff that I love other than Papertrey Ink. When it comes to paper, my favourite will always be OA but when it comes to stamps, it has to be Papertrey Ink. So, here's the card using my favourite stamps.

First, I stamped the text background in white acrylic paint by Making Memories. When it dries, the stamped background will have a slight raised effect like embossing. Then, I stamped the flourish in distress ink. The design is very much inspired by a t-shirt worn by a friend of mine.

Thanks for stopping by and have a nice day!

Edited to add: I entered this card for the MFW Fun with Fabric Challenge

Hello lovelies! I just want to say a big "THANK YOU" for your kinds words and sweet emails that you've been sending the last few days! This week has been the most exciting week since I started this blog almost 3 years ago. I never knew that blogging and cardmaking could be so fun and addictive. I never knew that I'll be making great friends from around the world. To be in a design team and getting published is never part of my dream when I started this blog. But as I grow, all this has becoming a dream of mine and I work to achieve it. When I fail and on the verge of giving up, you all just back me up and gives me the support that I needed. I am so THANKFUL to have you all as my friends and you are the reason why I'm still here. I LOVE you all....seriously!!

To show my appreciation, I'll be having a giveaway soon. But first let me mail out my 1st blog candy. Yes, it's a month ago and I still keep it. (Annie.....if you are reading this, I'm sorry and I'll make sure I'll go to the post office today)

Today I'm sharing a card I made for my SIL. She ordered a card from me (it's been a while since I sell my cards) yesterday and I thought what a perfect timing. Because I've been wanting to play with 2S4Y this week. This week is like an October Afternoon week for me. I've been using lots of paper from OA and I love it. Maybe I should do a post where I use a certain brand of products for the whole week. Let's say this week is October Afternoon and maybe next week is Cosmo Cricket or Papertrey Ink and so forth. What say you? Would it be fun? I would love to hear from you.

I had fun ruffling the paper fabric by Dear Lizzy for American Crafts. It does look like a skirt, doesn't it? It's fun and super easy to make. The chipboard butterfly is by K&Co that I had for a while and still hoarding it :) Hope you like it.

A little reminder on the Cutting Cafe have until Thursday 11:59pm, May 13th (Malaysian time). Thanks for stopping by my lil crafty corner and hope you are having a great day!

Dream Come True

I just had to share this with you. Some of you who know me long enough knew that my dream is to get publish in CARDS magazine someday. Guess what??? That day has finally came!! I received an email from Alisha requesting two of my cards to be publish in the October issue. I am beyond thrilled!! I just want to say a big THANK YOU to you all for the encouragements and support you've given me throughout these years......(you know who you are)!!

Giveaway! Yay!

Hey there! I am back with another card featuring the new printable stamps by The Cutting Cafe called "Cute Critters". Since this is one of my favourite set, of course I had to pair it with my favourite paper from October Afternoon. They are like matchmade in :)

Regina is so sweet that she's having another giveaway !! How fun right?? Since I adore the "Cute Critters" set so much, I'll be giving this set out to one lucky winner! All you have to do is to leave a comment on this post by Thursday 11:59pm, May 13th (Malaysian time please) and I'll randomly draw a winner on Friday, May 14th.

Have fun and see ya!

Woohoo! I am literally doing the happy dance right now!! Why you may ask. Because this card won the "Monochromatic" challenge at Caardvarks and this card won the "On Cue with Color" challenge hosted by Dawn and it's also a favourite pick by my dear friend Savitri!'s such a lucky day for me!

Today I don't have a card to share but instead I will show you a tag I made using paper by October Afternoon. Yes,  my love for OA is growing stronger than ever :) I combined a few other things like the die-cut ticket by Pink Paislee, chipboard bird by American Crafts and lace by Maya Road. I bought the twill from Carly a while back. The thing I love most other than the paper is the pink vintage button that I had in my stash. Lovely!

A BIG THANK YOU for all the lovely comments that you all left on my blog!! You sure know how to brighten my day! I love y'all!

I had an affair........

.......with October Afternoon of course!! Pardon me for my cheesy post title. Hehe...what were you thinking?? I  just fell so much in LOVE with the new paper from October Afternoon called "The Thrift Shop and "Fly A Kite"! I had to grab them the moment I saw them in Smidapaper :)

My mom is in China right now, so we did not spend Mother's Day together. Since I didn't go back to my mom's place, I spent my Saturday and Sunday playing with my newly bought paper. Ahhh....such a bliss!

I did not list the supplies I used on these cards but if you have any question, just shoot me an email and I'll be happy to answer any of your question. Anything for you ladies :)

I love the soft colors of these paper. So girly girl right?

That's all from me today. But I will be back with more OA goodness! Stay tuned!

Fun Stuff!

Hello there!! Hope you are having a fabulous day! I am sure I do.

Before I go on to share my cards, let me show you the sketch that prompted today's cards. I've never share this before but each time I create, I have to have a sketch or a plan before I start. Be it my own or someone else's sketch. I always keep a sketch book near me and jot down whenever an idea pop up. So I thought it would be fun to share with you the sketch I did yesterday and the cards I created based on it. Feel free to use the sketch if you want to....that's why I am sharing here :) Do let me know if you create a card based on the sketch. I'd be happy :)

All supplies except the kraft card base and buttons are from October Afternoon. I will never get tired of it :) Btw, see my handriwting right there? Yes, terrible I know. I am still learning to like my own handwriting :)

This is the first travel card I've ever made using paper from Studio Calico, paperclips from Glitz Design and letter stickers from Jilibean Soup. The travel tag is from Scarlet Lime. A real simple card....just cut and paste :)

Have a great day my beautiful friends! Hugs to y'all!
