Friends Forever

Hi Stamping Friends,

I'm so excited to play along with Happy Little Stampers (HLS) Mixed Media Challenge again. February's theme is Tear/Rip.

For details and other DTs’ inspirations, please check out the Challenge Blog. Anything mixed media could be linked up to our challenge as long as it follows our theme. Be sure to join for a chance to win $15.


The following are how I made my card.
Card Details

1. I placed two stencils together (one over the other) on a watercolor paper, then spritzed several distress inks to make my own background paper.

2. I created my own old book pages by stamping three different font texts and one sheet music on parchment papers using archival ink.

3. I tore several pieces of DIY old book pages and clued them to the background paper by Gel Medium.

4. After dry, I applied white embossing paste over lattice stencil.

5. I diecut a sketch heart, added glitters to the heart edge.

6. I cut the stamped sentiment, affixed heart and the glittering edge to the background paper, and assembled the card as shown.

Hope my card is inspirational to you. I also hope we stamping friends are FRIENDS FOREVER.  If you like my card, please drop me a note. Thanks for stopping by.

I Appreciate You

Hi Stamping Friends,

I was inspired by several challenges and have made a tag with a card.  I’ll give this card to a subordinate who has been so understanding and helped me lots of extras work.

In addition to say “I love you”, I think Valentine is also a good time to say “I appreciate you.” Do you agree? Hope this card is eye-pleasing to you. Thanks for stopping by.

Challenges to enter:


    My choice is embossing paste over a stencil.

     I was inspired by the word-Passion which made me think about coffee and Valentine and appreciate. Ha!
     My style is Clean and Layered Style. I was inspired by the sweet hearts even though my heart was not the focal point.
     I played with the theme.



Hi Stamping friends,

I’m so thrilled to join the talented Design Team of Happy Little Stampers (HLS) Mixed Media Challenge starting from Jan 2017.  I'd like to thank Kylie for offering this opportunity to me. I have high regards for this position as I desperately need a motivation to force myself squeezing time from my routine busy schedule as a banker, haha!

This month the HLS MM challenge theme is Layers. For details, please check out the challenge blog. Anything Mixed Media could be linked up to our challenge as long as it follows our theme. Please join us for a chance to win $15.

My tag has lots of layers. Hope this is inspirational to you.

Tag Details
1. I first applied distress inks on watercolor paper, then applied Water Stenciling technique to make two background papers. I picked the left one for my tag.

2. I stamped text collage, then overstamped butterfly collage.

4. I applied Translucent Embossing Paste over honeycomb stencil. After dry, I sponged white ink over the indentation to create a mosaic look.

5. A text was diecut (by STAMPlorations) and affixed as a final touch.

It’s the beginning of a new year. Hope everybody has lots of smiles this year.
