Thanks for Your Kindness


Hi Stamping Friends,

February is a month full of loves because we have the Valentine’s Day. For me, Valentine’s day is not just to express love but also gratitude and thanks. I’m making this card for a card donation club held by my stamping friend, Mandy. The cards will be sent to those adopted kids for them to express their gratitude to their adopting parents and family.


Card Details

1. I applied Jennifer McGuire’s Drip and Spritz Technique to make the watercolor background.


2. Floating Hearts die is by Simon Says Stamp and text die and stamp is by Hero Arts.


Hope my card is eye-pleasing to you. Wish you a great day. Thanks for stopping by.

The following are how I made my tag.

Tag Details


1. Apply various Distress Inks on tag.


2. Apply more distress inks over stencil to create tone-on-tone effect.


3. Stamp text collage and butterfly images on tag.


4. Apply white embossing paste over leave stencil on tag.


5. Die cut butterflies. Apply Distress Inks on butterfly and cover the butterfly with Wink of Stella.  Heat Emboss text in white on black card scrap.

Beautiful



Hi Stamping Friends,
I hope you’ve had a great start in 2018. It’s time to play along with Happy Little Stampers (HLS) Mixed Media Challenge again. The January Challenge Theme is Garden.



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 $20.

I love visiting gardens because I love flowers. Flowers are beautiful and it’s always a delight seeing flowers. The following is how I made my tag.

Tag Details

1. Stamp background on tag.




2. Apply several Distress Inks on tag.
 

3. Apply water over stencil to remove some of the distress inks. Apply more distress inks over stencil to increase depth and visual effect.


4. Stamp flowers and stems and color with Distress Inks. Die cut flowers and stems.

5. Assemble flowers and stems on tag and apply embossing paste over text stencil.


6. Apply clear Wink of Stella on flowers and stems. Splash some black inks on tag to create even more visual effect. Die cut text (by Tim Holtz) and adhere to tag to finalize the tag.


I hope my tag is eye-pleasing and inspirational to you. Please drop me a note if you like it. Thanks for stopping by.
