Old project to share - Simple Wedding Envelope

Update info - Thank you Leanne for recalling my memories. Yes, indeed, this was one of the stamps from Stampin Up. How could I not remember? I was the one who took it out from the set. Sorry for the mixed up. I guess this definitely is an aging problem :op

Hello everyone. Sorry, no fresh project to share today, but instead, I am posting a couple wedding envelopes I made a few weeks ago. These envelopes were made for my sister who came to visit earlier from San Francisco. She had a wedding to go to and wanted me to make her wedding cards. Since I was quite busy around that time, I just quickly did a couple envelopes for her instead. Because I wanted to do them quickly, so I just picked a more plain image to color. (just an excuse of being lazy) I bought this stamp about 2 years ago, but this was the second time I used this stamp. I thought I bought this online from Stamping Bella, not sure why I couldn't find the name anymore. I also bought a few others at the same time too?? If any of you know what stamp is this, please let me know. I have too many stamps that I haven't use, but when they came, I threw away the labels and store them into a CD case, but didn't write down the name :o(
I also used this stamp to stamp in a tile too. Maybe someday I will post that tile when I get a chance.

Here is the picture of these envelopes

Closer view on the image and I added stickles on the bouquet, the flower on the veil and the groom's bow

Here is the insert card for message and $$$ slot. Once the $$ is inserted, it will cover the written message

Thank you for stopping by!! Due to my busy time with visitors, I will try to post projects as much as I can :o)

PWCO Shrinky Dink Bracelet

Good morning and happy Saturday. Today I would like to share with you something other than a card. I used the fun Lucas the Lion image from the Safari Friends Collection from PWCO to stamp on the Shrinky Dink sheet, punched them out with the flower shape punch, then colored with my markers. With the heating tool, I made them into individual charms and created this bracelet. In addition, I made an extra charm to decorate the gift bag as well.

Here is the bracelet and gift bag set

Here is a closer view on this bracelet and you can see my daughter is modeling this bracelet for me. (Thank you Jasmine).

Here is a bag for this bracelet and I made an extra charm to decorate the bag. Another picture pf my daughter modeling it for me.

Hope you'll find this project interesting enough to try and don't forget there are many other stamp collections over at Peg's shop. You might be able to find more fun images to try for this project!! Thanks for stopping by and please do come back and check out the other DT members' wonderful creations :o)

Chinese Tilda Cardwith no DP for challenges

Good morning to you! Yummy, I ordered some stamps in two separate occasions, and they both arrived within a day apart. Wow wow wow. You sure can tell how much time I will spend on them in the next week days :o)

Off to my card for today. This is Chinese Tilda and she is one of my new purchase.s I am not sure about you, but to me, she looks like Japanese. I just can't leave her with no cherry blossoms. Did you notice this is another card I did with NO DP/patterned paper? I also got these Cuttlebug embossing folders a few weeks ago and thought they fit within my theme. I added a bunch of purple feather to fill up the lower right corner space to match Tilda's dress. I am using this card for the following challenges:

Lexis Creations Challenge #21 - Emboss It
Stamp with Fun Challenge #73 - Card for a Girl
Tanda Teaser 153 - Beautiful Border
Glitterbabe's Challenge #9 - Asian Theme
Stampavie and More Challenge #105 - Swirls
OLLCB Challenge #61 - Elegant Ladies
ODBDSLC26 - Punches or Dies
Here is my finished card

Closer view on Tilda's image and you can see a closer view on the picture of the right. It's not a DP, it's a doily that I swiped it through a red stamp pad, then I apply flourish rhinestone embellishment on top.

Here is a view that you can see the stickle more clear. I added it to the trim of her dress and some to the center of those blossoms.

Here is one of the side view. I used flourish gems and added some tinsel to decorate it. This tinsel is from a garland that I bought a while ago around St. Patrick Day. I just cut a few pieces out and arranged it and put tape them together, the curl them with my finger nails.

Here is another view of this candle and the right picture is the gardland I used and cut the tinsel pieces out for the decorations.

Tilda with bee in a flower bed double stair step card

Hello everyone. Hehe, I am so excited to share you my card today, because it's a card that took me a long time to finish and I really like it. (although I made a boo boo on Tilda's face by smudging a little of the hair color on her face :op)
I made this card following a tutorial from You can find the tutorial HERE.
This is a double stair step card made with the Tilda with Bee stamp. Since Tilda is holding a bee, I decided to use bees & flowers as my card theme. Also they are nature stuff, so I put her in an outdoor garden scene so I hand drawn her a cloud with cotton just for fun~

CYDA Challenge #2 - With Wings (bees)
Lexi's Creations Challenge #20 - Yellow & Orange

Happy Birthday Tilda Card

Good morning everyone. Wow soon the summer holiday is going to be finished. My summer this year is a busy one. I didn't really get too much time to rest, so hopefully I will plan my next summer ahead of time. Oh well, now I have quite a few months to plan ahead, I have no excuses not to do it better next year :o)

Off to today's card now. I didn't notice I used no DP for the card front until I finished. For some reasons, I though it would look better with at least some DP, so I used the DP for the insides. I made this Tilda card for a birthday theme to join the following challenges:

Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge - Birthday celebration blog hop challenge
City Crafter Challenge CCCB Week #18 - Isn't She Lovely
Crafts and Me Challenge #11 - Petals and Pearls
FBW118 - Fairy, Angel or Butterfly
The Craft Den Anything Goes Challenges - Three Layers
Stampin For the Week Challenge #45 - Anything Goes
Paper Cutz Challenge #55 - Anything Goes
GCA #101 - A Happy Birthday
Simple Doodles #24 - Come on let's celebrate
Mad For Markers - Use Pink Copics
Crafty Creations Challenge #81 - Butterflies

I used two different sizes doilies and airbrushed them in blue & pink. Embossed a piece of white card stock under the doilies as my background base for this card.

Here is a closer view on this cute Tilda

I bought a silhouette butterfly punch and the pearl trim from a LSS. It's pricy, but I really like the result. I also bought this flowers from Making Memories and it came with some leaves too.

Side view of the card and the writing space inside.

Here is a flat view of the card to show you the dimension.

Thank you for coming by today and every visitor is appreciated :o)

Twlight Edward Halloween card for challenges

Happy Friday everyone!! Today is a first Halloween card for this year I made using a TGF image which I haven't been used for a while. In fact, I have quite a few TGF stamps I haven't use yet. Hopefully, I am able to use them sometimes in the next little while. This card I made is for the following challenges:

Karber Weekly Challenge #1 - Twlight
Stamping Vacation Challenge - No brads or eyelets
Stamps R Us Challenges #2 - All male theme
