Live Your Dream with Passion

Hi Stamping Friends,

It’s time to play along with Happy Little Stampers (HLS) Mixed Media Challenge again. The May Challenge Theme is SPLATS.

For more 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.

When I saw the word - SPLATS, I instantly thought of Alcohol Inks and Tim Holtz’s signature technique – Alcohol Ink Splatter. The following are how I made my tag.

Tag Details

1. Apply Alcohol Ink Monoprint Technique on glossy paper for the background.

2. Apply Alcohol Ink Splatters Technique to create two flowers on tag as shown.

3. Stamp text background.

4. Apply Pearlescent Embossing Pastes over two overlapping stencils at the center of two flowers, respectively.

5. Stamp butterflies and sentiment in black on tag. Stamp two butterflies on vellum paper, die cut the vellum butterflies and attach.

I’m excited that I dug out Alcohol Inks and revisited Tim's two Alcohol Inks Techniques, together with the stenciling technique. Hope my tag is inspirational to you. Please drop me a note if you like my tag. Thanks for stopping by and wish you a great day.

Beautiful Baby

Hi Stamping Friends,

I made this monochromatic CAS baby card for a subordinate. I covered the baby onesie with clear Wink of Stella. I must say that the inlaid shiny baby onesie is very pretty. Hope the subtle sweet card is delightful to you. Thanks for stopping by.

Challenges to enter:
My choice is stenciling in two ways, one with embossing paste and the other with sponging the Distress Ink.
In my card, B is for a beautiful baby.



Forever Begins Now

Hi Stamping Friends,
I made this card for a subordinate. As can be seen, this wedding card is Clean and Simple style. I did apply several techniques like Dry Emboss, Heat Emboss, Inlaid Die-cutting and Distress Inks blending to enrich the visual effect. Hope this card is eye-pleasing to you. Thanks for stopping by and wish you a great day.
Challenges to enter:
My choice is Emboss, both dry and heat.
Even though I did not use the Smile word in my card, I’m sure wedding is an occasion that everybody will smile with joy.
