Walking in a Winter Wonder Land~

I don’t celebrate Christmas; I’m pretty much raised in a household that did not expect me to follow the religious traditions (Buddhism, if you’re curious ;))… However…. I love snow, and Christmas music, and the warm and liveliness of the Christmas spirit!

How I wish it snowed here in Singapore *sighs*

Holiday wishes to you and yours! I love PTI’s Tree Trimming Trio set but had a little trouble making it work… I had to hand cut the trees here, and goodness knows I hate that! I adhered some buttons with Claudine Hellmuth Studio Matte Multi-Medium; I love that stuff! Plus I’m clumsy so if I get it on the paper at least it isn’t going to be glossy!

Winter Bunny stamp from Lawn Fawn with sentiment from the snowman set by Paper Smooches Stamps! Wheeee sledding down a hill of pompom trim! I coloured the bunnies and their sleds with Faber Castell pencils + a watercolour brush pen. Tumbled Glass distress ink for a lovely blue sky:

I also made a set of cards using PTI’s Wreath for All Seasons, along with Giga Guidelines impression plate.

And I would have made more of these but I ran out of Vintage Cream CS and Ripe Avocado CS… Crafting fail LOL.

All of these cards are up at my zibbet store! Thank you for visiting 😀


a farewell

On Saturday night, a friend of mine took a flight back home, and we don’t know when we will meet again, so I thought it was a perfect time to make her a card to say goodbye with. I will miss her dearly!

I made her a little bookmark (die: Half & Half from PTI) that was tucked into the envelope cut from Seed Packet die, also from PTI, and parchment paper. We are both fans of the HBO TV series Game of Thrones, and bought the book set together, so I hope she finds this handy for reading with.

To make the card even more personalised, I stamped her nickname inside (Quinn’s ABCs from Lawn Fawn), along with a monkey (SU!)!

Other supplies:
Patterned paper (Webster’s Pages); Turning a New Leaf die, Double-ended Banners, Spiral Notebook Page, Soft Stone cardstock (PTI); Vintage Photo Distress ink; Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko); glitter chipboard heart (Melissa Frances); Divine Twine; Live, Laugh, Love stamp (SU!);

I’ve also gotten into the CHRISTMAS mood! It’s way too early, and I don’t even celebrate Christmas- but I recently bought some Paper Smooches stamps with super CUTE!!! snowmen!!

Eee! I want snow! These snowmen were coloured with Faber Castell watercolour pencils (because I’m too poor for Copics LOL) and a water brush thingy (that has a water reservoir… I forgot the brand)

Other supplies:
Mat Stack 5 die, Woodgrain Impression Plate, Heart die (PTI), Gold Embossing Powder (Ranger) – just a note I don’t like this- it leaves dust on light cardstock, you can even see it here on the darker CS -_-; Basic Grey patterned paper

I hope this makes up for my previous crappy post LOL. Thanks for visiting! Leave me your URL so I can visit you too! ❤
