Fun Sunday – magic card: you brighten my day!

Hi everyone. I have bought the “watts up” stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. It arrived with my other purchases soon after my order confirmed. I knew at once what should I do with it when I first saw it: a magic card. I haven’t made a magic card before so I searched online and found a video teaching how to make a magic card: http://youtu.be/VLH_9s0DJ-s . So I used the “watts up” stamp set and followed the instruction from the video, and made this card

For the card inside, I stamp the light bulb stamp from the set with memento ink and coloured it with my newly bought Copic markers. I coloured the background with mustered seed and wild honey Distress ink.

I used a dark card stock bought from a local store as card base. I applied versa mark ink and embossing power to make a sun shine pattern. Then I adhered the magic card onto the card base.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog

Hi. It is Saturday and finally my got time to sit down and make a card. Sometimes, when I have no ideas what to do, I will always look go for the challenges. One of these is the Wednesday Challenge on Simon Says Stamp Blog. Today, I made a card to enter the challenge. The theme for this week is

Anything goes.

they are now featuring Hero Arts products so I chose a hero art background stamp for this card.
J
Among different products in this brand, I love their wooden stamps and the hero hue shadow ink the most. Therefore, I stamp the background with the hero art wooden background stamp using hero hue black ink, on a 5 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ white card stock. I applied the ink heavily to ensure the image could be stamped nice. Then, I used the puffy stars die cut from Lawn Fawn and star shape die cut from My Favorite Things on some gitter paper from DCWV to make some stars. For the sentiment, I white embossed the stamp from the lucky star stamp set of Lawn Fawn.
This card is not difficult to make. I don’t think it is eye-catching enough but I still love it.

Fun Sunday- Happy mid autumn festival

People now start making happy autumn card. We Chinese, also celebrate autumn in the Mid-autumn festival. The mid-autumn festival is on the 15th august of Chinese calendar. We eat moon-cake, carry and play lanterns, and also celebrate the beauty of the moon. It is a really fun and warm festival. I especially love this day.

Therefore, I have made two cards for the festival. I watched the video from different artists of how they create a galaxy background, by pressing the paper on distress inks. I used the same technique for the first card.
