Your next stamp colour and sketch challenge #76

Hello and welcome 
I am back with a project created for Your Next Stamp sketch and colour challenge. The new challenge #76 is up, head down to YNS blog to see more inspirations by other fabulous designers.This time I chose the colour combo, here is my take. 

I used Birdie Banner for today's card. I stamped all the images in black on white randomly. Coloured all the images with copic. Then I trimmed it to 3 7/8" x 5 1/8". Next, I cut a piece of red patterned paper to 4x5 1/4", and adhered my card panel on the patterned paper. To create the sentiment, I used the stamp from Spin and Twirl Carpousel. I stamped it on white 3 times and trimmed each into a narrow stripe and mounted onto 3 pieces of red patterned paper. Finally, I taped them down on my card using foam adhesive. 

My card is done! I hope you enjoyed this card. Be sure to join the fun and share you own creation to win a gift certificate to YNS store. 

Happy crafting.


Your Next Stamp Feature Day

Hello and welcomeToday is feature day at your next stamp. The theme for today is be magic. I created a card using Flower Splatter and Let's Paw-ty from Your Next Stamp.When I saw MAGIC, first few things popped into my mind were rainbow colours, flowers, sparkle and shine. So I stamped the flower splatter in cleaning embossing ink on white, then heat set in white embossing powder. I blended distress ink in rainbow colours to create the magic background. The puppy stamp is perfect for today's card. It's like when you open the mystery box, you could see a puppy pops out with the magic lighting and flowers. For the sentiment, I used the Phoebe and pets. I stamped it in black on white, then I drew a speech bubble and fussy cut it. To finish the card, I applied some rhinestones and stickles on the flowers and gift boxes to add some sparkle.Be sure to check YNS blog and leave a comment to win a stamp set of your choice! Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Sunday:)Scarlet

Your Next Stamp sketch and colour challenge #75

Hello and welcome
I am back with a project created for Your Next Stamp sketch and colour challenge. The new challenge #75 is up, head down to YNS blog to see more inspirations by other fabulous designers.

I chose the sketch this time and here is my take.

To create this card, I stated with the background. I blended distress oxide inks on a piece of white cardstock. Started with twisted citron at the top, fossilised amber in the middle and picked raspberry at the bottom. Next I created two rectangle openings using MFT stitched CU comp-vert die, thought it's perfect for this sketch. Adhered a layer of acetate, used some foam tape to pop the frame up, and filled the shaker with sequins.

To embellish the card, I used Phoebe and Pets Stamp and the coordinating die set for this card. I stamped Phoebe and the bunny on a piece of white cardstock, coloured them with copic. I also used the sentiment from What not sentiments four from YNS. After adhering Phoebe and the bunny down onto the ca…

World Card Making Day

Hello crafty friends Happy World Card Making Day!! I am so thrilled to be part of the Simon Says Stamps WCMD 2017 celebration party. 20 designers from the globe were invited to join the fun. I’m representing China. We love red and gold in terms of celebration, so I wanted to add these two colours for today’s project.
Here a christmas card I created using SSS Christmas essentials and SSS circle doodle background.
   To start, I die cut a piece of watercolour paper using MFT wonky stitch rectangle die, then I stamped the SSS circle doodle background stamp in clear embossing ink on the watercolour panel, and heat set in white embossing powder. I used Gansai Tambi watercolour for the background colouring.

Next, I stamped all the images in black on white and copic coloured them. For the sentiment, I stamped it in clear embossing ink on black card stock, heat set in gold embossing powder. Ther e's no matching die for the sentiment, so I fussy cut it out. After having all the pieces rea…

Your Next Stamp October release blog hop

Hi crafty friends

Welcome to Your Next Stamp October new release blog hop. This release includes a number of fun stamps and dies, including Be Jolly, Hammie holiday fun, Periodically Nerdy, and rectangle stick frame die set.

I made a card using Hammie holiday fun and rectangle stick frame die to celebrate the new release. 

I had a lot of fun when making this card. I stamped all the images in black on white card stock, coloured them by copic markers. For my background, I blended worn lipstick and cracked pistachio distress oxide inks on the case base, and added drops of water using distress sprayer. Then I die cut the rectangle stick frame twice on a card panel to create the windows.

I fussy cut all the images I coloured earlier and foam mounted them on the card panel. And, my card is finished.

Your Next Stamp October new release preview

Hello friends
Today is Your Next Stamp October new release preview day! Can you believe that we are already in October, and the holiday season is not that far away. I am just wondering if everyone else has started making Christmas cards yet, because I have been making mine since September. Here is a card I created using Be Jolly and large reverse scallop die from Your Next Stamp October new release.

I had a dancing critter, obviously he would need a stage for his holiday dance, so I used Tim Holtz rays stencil and fossilised amber distress oxide ink to create the stage lighting, and the large reverse scallop die to create the stage curtains.

 I hope you like this card, please visit Your Next Stamp blog to see more preview photos from other design team members.

Be sure to come back tonight at 10:00pm EST for YNS New Release Blog Hop and your chance to win a $25 gift certificate!! 

Thanks so much for stopping by, hope to see you all soon.

Stampinup everyday hero

Hello and welcome 
Today's card features the Everyday Hero from the new 2017 occasions catalogue. I have also used the Star Blast Edgelite die. 
This is such a cute and fun stamp set! The rays in this set is perfect for background stamping, it adds so much interest to your card. 

The images have been coloured by copic markers.  The layered buildings have been created by masking it first and then stamping on top. I hope you enjoyed this card:)

MFT sketch challenge 316

Hello everyone

It is another week of MFT sketch challenge 316 !!. I fell in love with participating card challenges, it keeps me motivated and helps me getting to use of my stash! I have too many stamps sitting on my desk, looking pretty but never used :(
For this challenge, I used the stamp set modern blooms from MFT. It is one of the Stamp sets I don't get much use of it. 

I stamped these beautiful flowers with stampinup ink pads, then die cut them with the matching die from MFT. The sentiment die is also from MFT, I die cut five times to give it some dimensions. 
I hope you like this card as much as I do :) 
Have a wonderful weekend!

Neat and tangled January challenge

Hi everyone 
I'm so happy today! My card that I entered for Neat and Tangled December challenge has been chosen as one of the lovely little tangles! Thanks so much for choosing and sharing my card! It's such a great honor! 
So I decided to participate the first little tangles challenge in 2017. To be honest, I only have two stamp sets from Neat and Tangled 😭😂, and Better together  is one of them. The theme is anything goes, so here is my card the January challenge.

I also used it's no secret stamp set from Simon says stamp and gift box cover up die from MFT.  Love this soft colour background ❤❤.
Have a good night  Scarlet :)

MFT sketch 314 and colour challenge 60

Hello my crafty friends

This is my take for  MFT sketch challenge 314 and colour challenge 60

I actually planned to water colour those leaves, but I messed up TT and got inks everywhere, so I decided to die cut the leaves to cover the mess up😂😁. I actually quite like the result. Here you go. 

Have a lovely weekend!
