Hi Everyone! Last week, I did some masking on the little envelopes. Today, I used masking again for a different stamp set and not for a one layer card. I usually like using masking technique when I need to make a one-layer card but it can be used to make your own customised embellishment / image. This is a very simple care to make. The stamp set (Message in A Bottle) basically did most of the job for me! I prepared a masking for the bottle….Continue Reading “Create A Smile Stamps – Let’s Celebrate”

Hi everyone! Adding a simple tag to a small gift is always a great idea, don’t you think? Sometimes, when I need to give a gift to a friend or just a little pick-me-up and I have no cards in hand, I’ll add a little tag to the gift. Here are some tag ideas you can recreate using only ONE stamp set. I started by cutting myself some tag shapes with my watercolour paper. You can buy some watercolour tags but I find that when…Continue Reading “Create A smile Stamps – Tags!”

Hi everyone! You know, I’m not such a great colourist and I always take so long when colouring an image, eventhough I love it. So, sometimes, I take the opportunity to make a great without using any images and you can still make a great card! With die-cuts that’s popping out everywhere nowadays, there’s plenty you can do 🙂 As you can see, I basically almost filled the background with the colours of the rainbow. As usual, I use Distress Ink for this. You can…Continue Reading “Create A Smile – A Card Without Any Images”

Hi everyone! Sometimes, one small image is more than enough for a card. For this card, I wanted to make something that only uses one image but at the same time make the card look “full”. Watercolour is a big hype for a while now and I am a big fan. I hope you like this card! To share with everyone that just one image can help to make a card look “full”. Sometimes, I’ll be on a budget and I try not to buy…Continue Reading “Create A Smile Stamps – Watercolouring A Stamp”

Hi everyone! Last week, I shared a card with a colour combination that I’m not reaching out for very often, or even, ever. But today, I’m using a colour scheme that everyone is familiar with – RAINBOW! It’s the easiest colour scheme but yet, it’s makes something very eye catching. And also, you get to use a lot of your supplies that you’ve bought 😉 Creating and colouring a full background can be quite time-consuming. But sometimes, we might need a last minute card. Today, I’m…Continue Reading “Create A Smile Stamp – Rainbows!”

Hi Everyone! This is quite exciting for me. I haven had the time to participate in any challenges last year but I’m starting it again this year.

Hey everyone! I’m sure many of us have those stackable dies. It might be of a square shaped, or circle, or a banner one like the one in my card. But I rarely use them all at the same time, so I thought why not try and do that now? 😀  Of course, I started the card with some die-cutting first. I started with the biggest & second biggest die. You can start in any order your prefer. I used some coloured paper I got…Continue Reading “Create A Smile Stamps – Stack Those Die-Cuts!”
