Softpencil Thursday...

Good day! It's thursday... which means it is once again Softpencil time.
For this week, we got to work with this image called Welcome to my home, and the challenge is distressing (tearing, sanding, crumpling, inking, etc...). Well, I'm not a tearing kinda of girl, it's not that I don't like it, I just can't do it right? LOL! Smiley from millan.net

But anyways, I did play by the rule... I inked all the edges with Tim Holtz distressing inks, I used the cuttlebug embossing folder to create some branches, then sanded it, I also use the edge distresser for the brown cardstock, and yes, I did do some tearing too... I don't know whether you can see it. Then I crumpled it.

BTW, Softpencil is sponsoring Cupcake Craft Challenge this week! The color theme is green, pink, brown, animals, and flower. And the winner will receiver $20 voucher for the Softpencil shop! Check it out here!

Thanks for stopping by, and here are the DT chicas blog's link!
Shelley, Maureen, Wendy, Cathy, and Anne-Katrine.

I love this set...

from Unity, I purchased this set (Everyday Adorable) a while ago but haven't have a chance to ink it up. Today is the day... I inked it up and made a simple card. I used the new dp from Basic Grey the lemonade paper pad, colored it with Copics and Smooch. You know... I really like this tricycle, especially it's PINK! Hehe!! Smiley from millan.net

Hubby and I had a wonderful time in Vermont... glad to be home, back to my messy craft table... hehe!!! Surfing on to the blogging world... ohhhhh... the Pink Elephant has a super fun sketch challenge. Here is the link if you want to play along.
This little dog is from Softpencil, clouds and the sentiment is from Amuse. What do you think about my 3 dew drops? They are the cheap $1 rhinestones from Michaels, but I colored them with SMOOCH!

Of course, I love shopping, especially paper craft things... my LSS pal Connie told me the Paper Tree now carries SMOOCH!!! Thanks Connie!!! Big hug for you. Hubby and I decided to go away for the weekend... and of course we had to make a pit stop at the Paper Tree. Hehe... Tell me I don't have a problem. LOL! Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net Anyways, here is a card that I made with the new Amuse stamp girl with sled. I can't wait to try out the SMOOCH...

Me and my peeps...

Happy weekend! I have a sweet and simple card for you... my stamping peeps. ;) Isn't she so cute and sweet? She is one of many cute images from Softpencil. As usual I colored the image with Copics, then I chalked the background. Hope you like it.

Have a great weekend.

Eat, drink, & be merry!

Yay! The weekend is here. Hubby and I had a great dinner with our good friends at a local chinese restaurant. The food was really spicy and GOOD!!! Millan.net I figured this card is perfect for the occasion.

Have a wonderful rest of the night!

Howdy!

Yay! It's thursday... Softpencil thursdays!

Woohoo, for this week... the DT gals are working this new digi called "It's a rainy day". Isn't she just too cute... I love her hair-do, it's still perfect even it's raining. As for mine, it would be all fizzy and out of control. Anyways, since I love pink and green, I found this pretty design paper from my secret stash, hehe... then I paperpieced for her shirt and her umbrella, airbrushed the background with copic marker cool grey #3, added diamond glaze on her umbrella, her shoes, & the water puddle, then I added a little bit of details here and there... Viola!

I hope you like it and don't forget to check what other DT gals have for you.

P.S. This NEW image is available at the Softpencil's shop now.

Softpencil thursday...

It's Softpencil time! This week specials... I'll keep you safe. Ohhh... memories! This is the first stamp that I brought at Softpencil. Do I have to say more... Smiley from millan.net I absolutely adore this image. For the DT this week, we have to have stitching on our projects. Oh boy, I don't know how to sew at all.... but thanks to the rescue of hand or faux stitching!

Yay, RUB-ONS!!! and I also added hand stitching on the flower and the chick.

Do you want his fuzzy heart pillow? I do!! He is also from Softpencil. I was just a little teddy bear crazy lately... Smiley from millan.net

Check out the Softpencil blog here and all the DT's wonderful creations too.
P.S. There is also a freebie from Softpencil, here is the link.

My first class at the Paper Tree!



Yay!!! I made it... my first "teaching" class, I have 5 wonderful ladies. We made an Amuse Collection Album. They were wonderful and so patient with me. Thank you so much ladies!!! Millan.net. I decided to make this album about a year and half ago when my Amuse stamps collection started to grow larger and larger, and I also found myself starring at the Amuse stamp wall at the Tree, trying to remember whether or not I have the stamp yet...
Well, my problem is solved! Smiley from millan.net I'll never buy double stamps or pens again. I also added a complete Copic Marker chart and a blank table at the back of the album for notes (I put all my nestabilities, memento ink, and Copic Spica pens). Here are pictures of the finished products, the ladies had the choice of blue or pink.

This album belongs to Michelle (the owner) of the Paper Tree, she even added ribbons on it. I love it! I might do the same on mine. :)If you are interested, please contact the Paper Tree at (603)624-8800, they have kits available.

Since it's A*Muse*A*Palooza... got to ink up some new stamps!

Happy Stamping and have a great weekend!
