Life is Good


Hi Stamping Friends,

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


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. Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! Check out all the details HERE. IF YOU USE STAMPS BY HAPPY LITTLE STAMPERS AND YOU ARE OUR RANDOM WINNER, YOUR PRIZE WILL BE DOUBLED!

I must confess that due to time constraints, I had no inspirations at all. I started from a piece of previously-made scrap to save time. The following are how I made my tag.


Tag Details


1. The scrap to kick off my tag is shown below. I believe I spritzed various distress mists on stencil and used the stencil as a stamp over a card stock.


2. Apply various Distress Inks to create tone-on-tone effect.


3. Stamp music note collage.


4. Apple Distress Oxide Ink on stencil. Mist the stencil and use the stencil as a stamp over the tag. Edge the tag with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.


5. Apply Gold Embossing Paste over Floral Stencil on tag. To make the gold silhouette flower pop, trace the raised portion with black Sharpie pen.


6. Stamp text and frame, and cut out.


7. Assemble the tag.



Hope this last-minute project is eye-pleasing to you.  Thanks for stopping by and wish you a great day.

A Crafty Friend Like You is a Gift


Hi Stamping Friends,

I was in a mood to make a mixed media CAS card and this is what I made. I plan to send it to a craft friend whom I haven’t met for quite a while.



I like the contrast element of this card, e.g. black versus white and mixed media versus clean & simple. Hope you like this card too. Thanks for stopping by.

I’m thrilled that this card was chosen as one of the Top 3 by Through the Craft Room Door Challenge Blog with the following comment from DT Natalie: I really like the mix of monochrome with an inked background and the floral silhouette design. So pretty and elegant. Thanks so much, DT Natalie.

My card style is mixed media CAS. I was inspired by the beautiful spring colors and the flower theme.

Today I’m excited to play with Distress Oxide Inks which have been sitting on my shelf for months. (Yes, I don’t know what went wrong with me to take such a long time to try. Ha!) This tag has everything I love - bright colors, layers and textures. And I love the theme - travel too. The following are how I made my tag.


Tag Details

1. Press Distress Oxide Inks on craft sheet and spritz with water. Swipe watercolor tag on craft sheet with Distress Oxide Inks.


2. Continue to swipe tag on craft sheet several times to layer colors.


3. Add more colors to build more layers of colors.


4. Stamp text background on tag.


5. Apply embossing paste over stencil to create textures.


6. Die cut globe, heart and flower. Cover heart with Wink of Stella for shining effect.


7. Assemble the tag as shown.




Hope this tag is eye-pleasing and inspirational to you. Wish you a great day and thanks for stopping by.
