Singing a love song

I'm a die-hard for country love ballads. I wanted the wordings to be Shania Twain's "You're Still The One" but I don't have the stamp for it. However, I've one that says "When I followed my heart, it led right up to you," And opens up to inside card that reads "my love". This makes a great anniversary card...couples STILL gazing into each other's eyes on their anniversary, riding through the ups and downs of marriage years.

A marriage relationship is a life long commitment. Where the heart has led you in the first place, let it continue to draw you back there to the one you have tied the knot with. Happy Anniversary to all married couples out there. God bless your marriage!

Babies... TOO CUTE

Some days I like a bit of challenge to make cards that need some tracing, small-detail-trimming and lots of creative thinking!! I sought out some papers, template with body parts, a rubber stamp "hat" and Jeart 1710007 Baby Articles - pram which I modified to fit the correct height.

The outcome, a card to congratulate new parents on new arrival of their bundle of joy. The imprint on the little outfit reads Baby girl. It's not glued on so I can change to Baby boy outfit to suit the occasion.

Roses are red

I was playing around with Jeart 1401035 Frame/Goblet, can actually do so much with this scallop frame die. Also used here is Jeart Lace #49 border.

I twisted some wire on a wire jig for hangers.

Pretty papers

When you come across scraps of lovely papers, try pairing them up with card of complimentary color and stick some embellishment over it - the outcome is a card made less than five minutes!

But of course if you are going to dress up the inside of the card with pop ups and such, it'll take longer than 5

Wedding Invitation Card

I love working with colors. Any color is a beautiful color to me and this card is made with gold colored paper. I love the tiny envelope which is cut out from Jeart Envelope and the frame as background is Jeart Rectangle Scallop Frame. These dies make a great collection as you can come up with soooooo many card creation with them. The images are Studio G clear stamps, simply the easy way to put messages on cards.

Wedding Invitation Card

The standout of this card is the hearts embellished with sequins. It's simple to make, just cut out heart shape and glue sequins and beads over it, mount over foam and cut around with craft scissor with segregated edges. You'll love the embellished heart on cards for various occasion. It's hard to get the right color of the real card in photos and I hope you get the idea.

Wedding Invitation Card

A dear church friend has requested that I help her make Wedding Invitation cards for her precious daughter's upcoming Big Day. I have never made wedding invitation card and it makes me nervous thinking of making "formal" cards for giving out. However, I love the challenge of making cards for all occasion so I tell myself why not. I've to make more than 20 cards and I get bored easily making too many cards with one design so I might have to come up with a few designs and get inspiration from other cardmakers, books, magazines....

I love lilies for wedding bouquet...did I have lilies for my wedding bouquet?...gotta ask my better half if I did or didn't. It's been over 21 years that we are married and I can't remember the details :( Anyway, the lilies are made from heart shapes, one bigger one for the lillies and one for the bottom part (whatever it's called lol....)

Wedding Pop Up Card

I'm having so much fun with pop ups and stamping that I end up making this card. I cut out the embossed heart/bird from Jeart die to create a frame for message.

Can't see it very well but the bridal dress has silver glitter so this picture doesn't do justice to the real card..LOL...I've also left the inside card blank to fill in messages. I've yet to create a cover for this wedding card.

Love you to bits, MOM!

This weekend is Mother's Day. I'm sure everyone will be busy thinking of something to give to their mom or somewhere to take her to dine out. My mom is a big inspiration for me to make a love card for Mother's day. From young till now she's packed with love for all of us siblings and I've learned something about unconditional love from her.

I wanted a card that describes my mom, a woman of utmost respect, full of love and who loves gardening. That's why I go for layered pop up card so I can stick lots of flowers (all the scraps of flower shape I collected over time) to make it look like a mini garden. Pretty simple to make and I'm glad I still enjoy making cards....

Happy Mother's Day to all mothers.

Fun with stamping

I found some really awesome rubber stamps and once I got them I couldn't wait to make greeting cards with them. I cut out a tree die shape, cropped off the tree top and stamped words to look like extended tree branch to fill in messages.

Yummy cupcakes....
