Happy New Year~ Oh Happy Day!

Hello everyone!

I am here today with a quick post to wish you a very happy New Year! May your 2016 be better and filled with lots of love and prosperity!

Here is my card to celebrate this happy day!! ^_^
I used an old Lawn Fawn stamp set Hello Sunshine for this card. I think I need more practice on using the distress ink for the background. It just looks a bit patchy! Boo~

Here are some more photos from the side and close up:
I white embossed all clouds and sentiment. Used lots of snippets of pattern papers and hand cut all the little flags. These birds are just so sweet. They are stamped, coloured in by using Copic Ciao marker pens and propped up by using foam squares. 

This card will also be going to the following challenges:
I hope you like the card. Oh~ wish you have a happy day and in 2016 every day is a happy day!! ^_^

Baby, it's cold outside! Merry Christmas~

Hello my crafty friends!

I hope you all had a very happy Christmas! We had an amazing Christmas day and Boxing day. Seeing the exciting faces of the children opening their presents was just the best thing in the world! Now that the chaos and panic is over, I can finally sit down and calmly share some of the Christmas cards I made this year. Starting off with this cute alpaca Christmas card:
I mixed Perfect Pearls pigment powder in water and sprayed it all over the sky (created by using distress ink). This is the first time I used this technique and I love the effect when the water reacts to the distress ink and leaves it washed out with shimmery sparkle dots everywhere. It just creates a starry sky! Lawn Fawn's Forest border die was used to create the background. Snippets of white cards were used to create snow hills, Christmas tree (by Beth Hughes Designs) and the alpaca (Winter Alpaca stamps by Lawn Fawn). Here is a closer look of the card:
Although this is a fairly small 4" x 4" card, a lot of work has gone into it. Lots of layers, dimensions and textures!  

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
During these few quiet days, hopefully I will be able to blog more of my Christmas cards and, if I can, find time to craft would be even better!! ^_^

Thanks for visiting! See you soon~
