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

Bunny Buns!

Hey everyone! Thanks for visiting… Just a really quick one today as I did not have the time to make anything else since I wasn’t home!… 😦 Also, do excuse the funky lighting – I took the pictures in my room as it was already dark outside.

Basically what had this card started is this challenge I saw: Show Us Your Shapes Challenge at Our Creative Corner. So, I have to make a shaped card, eh? That is not something I am experienced with, but I do have something to help me cheat!

*Eyes the Silhouette Cameo* I just got it on NYE so it is NEW enough for the new challenge I’m taking part in.

 Bunnies! I went out today for my physiotherapy appointment, and then I had to go around to find these pom pom balls with tinsel (oooh new stuff!)  to attach to the bunny buns. I wanted to do more to the card, but I think it’s cute enough and I don’t want to ruin it.

Make My Monday Week 33 + Young Crafters Unite + Penny’s Paper-Crafty Challenge #70

As I wrote a few posts down, I was hospitalised for a short while… And I made this card that I am going to be sending out to the staff and nurses in the ward I was staying in to thank them for taking such great care of me 🙂 It so happens I used birds (pertains to the Make My Monday Week 33 challenge + Penny’s Paper-Crafy Challenge #70) and it is a CAS card (for the Young Crafters Unite Challenge 5 calling for CAS cards)

The nurses were so kind to me- they got to know me on a first name basis quickly and learned that I liked my Milo (a chocolate malt drink- I don’t think it’s very popular in the US!) with extra Milo powder so that it’s all rich and thick!

I have to say it makes me a little happy inside to know that this card will be pinned to the board of Thank You cards 🙂 I hope they will all have a great new year!
