Chagllenge: Explore!

Hi! It has been almost a year since I started to make card. Time flies.

This card was make to enter the Wednesday Challenge of Simons Says Stamps. The theme is ” Transport it!” this week.

I felt excited because I got a bicycle clear stamp bought long time ago and I’ve never used it. It is really a good chance to use it. 

I already forgot where I bought the stamp but I think it is from Hot off the press. It is a very nice stamp with great details. I stamped it with Navy colour of Hero Hue ink, on a water colour paper which I coloured with water colours. Then, I cut it out. For the strips at the bottom, I stamped the  It mod borders LLD and Washi Pattern border on white paper with goldenlocks, coral reef, beanstalk green from Simon says inks and Navy colour from Hero Hue ink. The earth globe behind the bicycle is from Enjoy the journey of Simon says stamps and I colour it with Copic markers G00 and B00. Before I put everything together, I decide to add a vertical border to make the card more balanced. So I used the arrows or V shapes from V for Chevron of Winne & Walter and put the arrows together to make a vertical border. I stamp the border with cobblestone ink from Simon says inks. For the sentiment, it was quite interesting. I used the arrow head of an arrow from the Enjoy the journey stamp set. I coverd up the body the arrow and just inked the head part. Then I used the sentiment “EXPLORE” from the same stamp set as the body of the arrow. I also used the cobblestone ink for the sentiment. Finally I put everything together with foam adhesive for some dimensions. And that is it. I like this card and I am quite addicting to enter challenge. I think it is really a good way to push my creactivity and productivity. 🙂

have a nice day.

cards made using my son’s handprint

Actually it is not a handprint. Since my son is just 3 months old and I don't have any ink for making handprint at home. I just put his little hands on a sheet of vellum and then traced the shape of his hands using a pencil. And then I cut out the shape of his hands and made these two cards.

The first one, I used the Koh-I-Noor Hardtmuth Round water colour 24 to water-coloured the background, by using the cut vellum as mask and then stamp the sentiment using the Chit Chat stamp sets with die cut by Lawn Fawn.

It is a birthday card for my younger brother.

The second one, I used the Thank you Grid stamp from Hero Arts, and technique learnt from Jennifer McGuire Ink, which is my favourite blog owned by Jennifer McGuire, who make beautiful beautiful cards. The technique is called “pop up stamping”
