un ‘merci’ carte – a ‘thank you’ card :)

I learned a little French as an elective topic back when I was in a polytechnic, training to be a biotechnologist (look where I am now, LOL)… I’ve always had a soft spot for this language, although Russian is my favourite, and I’d love to have some Russian greeting stamps. One day, I’ll have some custom made for myself 🙂

For now, I have a ‘merci’ sentiment from Papertrey Ink which I used for my card here today:

I made this card with all the challenges I wanted to do already in mind… I picked a sketch from Card Patterns Weekly Sketch Blog.

Using the Postage die from Papertrey Ink, I cut those 10 pieces and using an MFT scallop die, put my card together… Thought I could enter a paper piecing challenge by Craft Your Days Away Challenge Blog (Challenge 39).

And as for the colours I picked, they are for The Play Date Cafe (Challenge #119 for B&W + Hot Pink) I used Raspberry Fizz ink from PTI and a Raspberry Fizz button for all the hot pink I got in my card!

Also the colours I used were also inspired by Our Creative Corner, which wanted B&W and a splash of colour… Undoubtedly, it was hot pink!

I wanted to push myself even more and picked one more challenge to base my card on, and it was Crazy4Challenges – C4C124 – which was to use polka dots and stripes! These were stamped with PTI’s Polka Dot Basics II for the varying polka dot sizes, and Lawn Fawn’s Schoolhouse Backdrops for the stripes 🙂

So, 5 challenges in total and I think I did pretty okay! What do you think? 🙂

Before I go, just wanted to share with everyone a wonderful piece of news that I was featured on The Kraft Journal blog’s Feature Me Friday for a card I made just a short while ago; original post is here. This is the first time that I have been handpicked and featured in a blog entry like this and I’m beyond thrilled! I do hope to continue improving in my stamping and cardmaking skills 🙂

Thanks for visiting, I hope everyone has a lovely day 🙂 xxStephinka

Won’t you give me somebunny to love…

Another card… using one of my favourite dies from PTI, the Parisian Lace doily to emboss instead of cuting all the way through 🙂

This bunny here is from Lawn Fawn’s My Silly Valentine set and is just the most adorable thing ever. I have finally jumped on the Copic bandwagon and after a few test colourings. Pretty proud of myself. I even gave it some blush hehehe! And I just adore the little red heart ❤

Bunny is slightly popped up with foam adhesive to give some dimension. Oh, I just adore this bunny and I am sure I will reach and reach again for it.

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 😀
