Hello there crafty friends...

Here is June Mood Board Inspiration Photo

Click here to join us at CDD gallery to enter the challenge.


Here is what I made for you
I love this mood board photo inspiration.  It's so sweet and yummy pastel colors.  I began by dropping in clear water at the center of my water color panel randomly and followed by Distress Oxide Inks in Broken China, Cracked Pistachio and Worn Lipstick.  Let it dried and cut the panel with Crazy Stitched Frame dies.


From white cardstock I stamped this adorable rain critter from Stars and Wishes stamp and colored him with copic markers.  I fussy cut him out but without the rain drops and used stickle to make some sparkle at the cloud.  I poped him up with some form tape and stamped the sentiment word "Sending" from Wishful Thoughts and combine with sentiment "Magical Birthday Wishes" from Magical Wishes stamp.  I finished it off by dropping Nuvo Crystal Drop in Apple Green and Caribbean Ocean.  And it's done!

I do hope you like it and Thank You for stopping by today.

Hugs,
Jan

Here is what I made for you.

I love this mood board inspiration photo... The colors theme is so sweet so I colored the trio honey pots as per the color theme.

It's a one layer card but I don't have to do any masking or fussy cutting for that *Yeah* :) I stamped the bee bear and the trio honey pots from Sweet As Honey stamp toward the bottom of my panel.  I knew that I wanted to put the bee hive at the top but I didn't want it to be closed at the edge so I stamped the bee hive at the top center of my panel and handdrawn the tree trunk and the branch extended from to the bee hive.


There was the line at the connection of the bee hive and my tree branch so I covered it up by drawing extra leaves to cove that line.

I colored all image with my usual medium copic markers including the grass ground.  I then cut my main panel with Crazy Stitched Frame dies and stamped the sentiment at the top.  I decided not to put any Nuvo drops here so I used Glossy Accent at the bee hive.  And my card was done!

Thank you for stopping by today and wishing you all wonderful day!

Hugs,
Jan

Sending Bugs and Kisses

Hello Crafty friends,

I am super excited to be back on Craftin Desert Divas' Blog again for today.  And I have a project to share with you.

And here is what I made

I love this cutie pie from Ladybug Garden stamp.  Love the position that she is sending the flower away as if she is sending Bugs (Hugs) and Kisses.

Here is how I made,  I first cut my main panel from white card stock using Crazy Stitched Frame dies.  I stamped the ladybug image onto white card stock, colored it with copic markers and fussy cut it out.  I know that I wanted to make her stand on the stump to give some interest.  So I used the stump die cut from Scene Builder dies with light and dark grey texture card stocks.  I positioned her onto the stump and stamped the flowers onto the card base itself toward the right.



I wanted to hi light the word Sending so I used the Sending word from Wishful Thought stamp and partially stamped the words Bugs and Kisses underneath it.  I then adhered the stump directly onto card based and popped the ladybug up with form tape.  I created my grass ground with some green copic markers using flicking technique.

Then I felt the sky was abit plain so I had the option to do as I usually did with my card with sky stencil but I wanted to make it abit different so I diecut the cloud die from Scene Builder dies as well with light blue textured card stock and adhered onto my card base.  I also used Glossy Accent onto the ladybug's wings.

I hope you like what I made and Thank you for stopping by.  Have a Wonderful day.

Hugs,
Jan

You Are Refreshing

Hello everyone...

I am so glad to be back on Craftn Desert Divas' Blog  to share with you my little project.

Here is what I made for you.

I don't know about you but for me I eat watermelon quite often due to the weather here in Singapore.  So I hope this little card can give you virtual refreshing in wherever you are. :)

I began by cutting my main panel from white cardstock using Crazy Stitched Frame dies using the largest and the smallest dies in the set.  I then put them back together secured them temporary with washi tape at the back.  Then I stamped the slice of watermelon image from Market Stand stamp all over the main panel except at the center panel toward the left.  I used the whole watermelon image and stamped it there along with the sentiment from Scoops stamp set.


I then took the center piece out and stamped the slice of watermelon image onto some post-it paper repeatedly (I mean alot *lol*) and fussy cut them out to cover all my slices.  Then I began to use Distress Oxide Ink in iced spruce covered lightly just to give it some light color rather than white.  For the center panel I used worn lipstick Distress Oxide ink.

I colored all images with copic makers and adhered the center panel onto some light weight layering paper in black and popped the panel up with form tape.   As in trend now I dropped Nuvo Crystal Drop in Apple Green color for additional interest.

I hope you like it and Thank you for stopping by today.

Hugs,
Jan

Wishing You A Million Happy

Hello there my friends...

I have a little project to share with  you today inspired by Craftin Desert Divas Social Media Monthly Mood Board Challenge... Here is the inpiration board.


You can participate our Challenge and here is the link to CDD gallery

And here is my project I created


I love how versatile of this Floral Wreaths stamp.  Those small flowers images are so pretty.  I created this bouquet of flowers with some masking paper... I know a lot of small images to fussy cut out but I think they're worth the trouble to acheive the look that I wanted.  I also use the faboulous big bow from Winter Bliss stamp partially not inking at the top left corner of the bow.  I planed to have the flowers overlapping down a little bit for abit of realistic look.


I colored all images with copic markers and cut my panel with Fancy Frame dies.  I stamped the sentiment at the top from This and That stamp and finished it off with Nuvo Crystal Drop in Wedgewood Blue.

I hope you like it and play along with us at CDD Facebook Gallery.  Thank you for stopping by today and I wish you all a wonderful day.

Hugs,
Jan

Here are what I have for you today.

Project #1 : Ladybug Garden Stamp

I began by stamping the center flower bug pot at the center of my panel and maked her off with some masking paper that I fussy cut the image out.  I then stamped another one at each sides.  I colored them all with copic markers and decided to play around with the sentiment.

I cut the sign dies from Garden Border dies 3 times and partially stamped the sentiment using only words "laughs, love and smiles" onto the sign diecut pieces.  I then stamped again the whole sentiment and cut them seperately and attached on white strip of paper that I colored the border around using the matching copic markers that I used on each flowers.

Before I attatched down the sentiment.  I cut my main panel using Crazy Stitched Frame dies for some interest... And surprised I didn't use any Nuvo Crystal Drop on this card. *lol*


Project #2 : Weather Gnomes Stamp

This card I did it differently from my usual coloring medium.  I used Inktense Watercolor Pencils for this.  I began by stamping this adorable cloud girl onto some watercolor paper toward the bottom right of my panel.  I handdrawn lightly with pencils for my rainbown strips to match the length of the sentiment that I stamped on Flag Banner dies.


After I colored the rainbow path and let it dried, I used Inktense Watercolor Pencil itself in blue to drawn my sky clouds.  I didn't do a good job on this but it's a learning curve for me.  Before I attached the sentiment banner down I cut my panel with Crazy Stitched Frame dies and droped Nuvo Crystal Drop in Apple Green here and there.

Project #3 : Stars And Wishes Stamp

I did onelayer card on this.  I stamped and position all the images onto white panel that cut from Crazy Stitched Frame dies.  I colored all in with copic markers.  I masked of the main Star Critter of with some post-it paper but I wanted to do something else with those clound flowers and stars because they are so small especially those leaves.


I droped Glossy Accent onto those flowers clouds and stars and wait till them completly dried.  Once they're dried they would resist my ink blending background.  I used Distress ink tumble glass, salty ocean, chipped sapphire and abit of black sooth at the bottom.

I do hope you enjoy all my projects for this release and THANK YOU so much for taking time to look at my projects... Have a Beautiful Day!

Hugs,
Jan
