A Card Just to Say Hello!

Hello again! My second post today also follows the colourQ challenge like my previous card!

And is also based on this sketch:

So here is my second card…

hello handmade card, all occasion handmade card, just saying hello, pink, cream, turquoise, grosgrain ribbon, silhouette cameo, my favorite things leafy flourish, papertrey ink fancy flourishes.

The hearts I used here are from the leftovers of the hearts die cut from my last card here 😀 The pink flourishes are cut with My Favorite Things Leafy Flourish die, which I just love!! It’s so dainty 🙂 The cream flourishes are cut from Papertrey Ink’s Fancy Flourishes dies.

I remembered to use some foam tape for added dimension this time *laughs* Even the white mat all the elements are on has foam tape underneath to pop from the card base! I’m just loving that effect. ‘Just Saying Hello’ is from the Hero Arts ‘Truly Appreciated’ clear stamp set (disclaimer: this is not an affiliate link). I just bought it and I think I’ll be reaching for it often for its larger-sized sentiments!

Before I go I’d just like to show everyone my Valentine’s flowers from my boyfriend, who somehow managed to send me roses from Australia. They are delivered by a local florist here in Singapore and I got them two days after Valentine’s Day but it’s still so very sweet!

This is actually the first time a boyfriend has ever given me flowers for Valentine’s Day so yes, I am actually pretty stoked LOL!! Thank you for the flowers Elliot, I love you 🙂 x

And that is all for today, I’m still working on cleaning up my room and reorganising my dies and stamps – a huge task to undertake! I didn’t know I had *that* much! But I know once they get organised I will reach for the unused ones more. Thank you for visiting my blog!  xx Stephinka

Under the Weather?

Sharing a ‘feel better soon’ card- we all need a get well card and usually it’s hard to have a card ready for that immediately so I thought it was a great idea to do a challenge for one. Now I have a get well card at the ready! Also, I’m following a colourQ challenge:

And I also based the creation of my card on a sketch I found…

Without further ado…. Here’s my card!

handmade get well card, feel better handmade card, pink, red, turquoise, cream, white, papertrey ink limitless layers, silhouette cameo, papertrey ink double ended banners, stampin up lace die

I used Papertrey Ink’s Limitless Layers in two of their available sizes to make both the ‘cool caribbean’ colour and the ‘pretty in pink’. The diecut of those hearts were made with my Silhouette Cameo! Love that thing and need to use it more often!

And another favourite die of mine from Papertrey Ink is the double ended banners one- which I embossed with PTI Sunshine impression plate and then stamped with a Feel Better Soon sentiment from Paper Smooches Stamps set ‘Healthy Vibes’ 🙂 Finished the card with a Stampin Up border punch- I don’t know what it’s called but I like that the scallops/lace looks simple enough to still be able to make this card appropriate to give to a guy/boy who is ill.

Thanks for visiting! I am trying to keep up with replying to comments- I read every one of them but don’t always have the time to reply. Know that I still love you all though! Hope everyone is having a good day! 😀 xx Stephinka

Here’s a card I promised to show you yesterday! A lovely friend already bought this (and the previous card) to send as Valentine cards, I’m so excited to make a sale! :’)

handmade valentines day card, love card, i love you card, pink, gray, grey, embossed, melissa frances glitter heart pink, gray ribbon, papertrey ink

I used some grey grosgrain ribbon from American Crafts called Ash, that I thought was a very good match for the PTI shade called Stone. Can’t compare as I don’t have any Stone ribbons but this will do!

The sun was shining so brightly in my balcony! I think it was around noon that I took this picture… I do love that it brought out the pretty glitter in the pink glittered heart by Melissa Frances. I have been hoarding those hearts she used to sell (or rather, I can’t find them anymore).

I’m going to make more posts for tonight as I am joining in some challenges!

Thank you for visiting!! xx Stephinka (and as always, I will always visit your blog if you leave your URL!)

for you… my love :)

Unlike making cards for Christmas, I feel like Valentine’s is much more fun to craft for… Since you can give out handmade I love you cards all year round! I think that’s why my inspiration hasn’t run too low even with it looming ahead as it would usually if I had to craft a lot for a particular holiday.

Excuse my lighting! It’s so hard to photograph cards without a lightbox and I think I desperately need to make one… The problem is first I need to get out of my chair. LOL! And then I need to actually make the darned thing.. Oh goodness. Now I’m wishing I had a DH; I imagine it would be lovely and fairly convenient for a crafter who had a DH into DIY so he can help custom make racks, tables, cupboards to hold all the lovely embellishments and supplies.

Lots of Papertrey Ink Mat Stack 4 action here! Hearts are from My Favorite Things, and of course the tag is from Tiny Tags (PTI)! I’m loving the kraft buttons from PTI too… They look like they will go with anything!

I have another card to share but I will put it in a separate post. Thank you for visiting!! xx Stephinka (and as always, I will always visit your blog if you leave your URL!)
