Birthday, Kraft On & Alphabet Stickers

Good day crafty friends:

I hope you and your family are well.  Today I want to share a card I made for a mini blog hop organized by a sweet crafty friend - Virginia Lu to celebrate the birthday of an equally sweet crafty friend - Barb Engler.  You could find all the details here.  Belated Happy Birthday Barb!

At the same time I thought I enter it to the current CAS-ual Fridays challenge - Create a CAS project using Kraft, and the Alphabet Stickers Challenge over at MoxieFabWorld.


Looking forward to you coming back to visit, and have a lovely day!

CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #3

Happy Sunday all:

I hope everything is well with you given that the 'super storm' Sandy is lurking outside.  Got some birthdays coming up next month, and I really like this sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch and I couldn't resist but to play along.

I rotated the sketch 90 degrese counter clockwise, and used a piece of pp from "3bugsinarug" that I've hoarded for, oh I don't know, three four years!?  The English greeting is from Hero Arts, the Chinese one is computer generated.  Cupcake stamp is from Hot Off The Press.

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of the weekend!!

CAS(E) this Sketch! Challenge #2

CAS (clean and simple) card design seems to be all the rage in the card making world lately.  And I am liking it, a lot!  Here's a card for a new challenge block CAS(E) this Sketch!  This week's sketch is:

I used clear stamps (studio G, VC0015) for this square card.  I stamped in black and then addesd some colours using coloring pencils, and embellished with gems.  I used Liquid Pearl for the white mistletoe berry.

Thanks for stopping by.

Wedding cake and hearts

Welcome back.  It's Cindy here.  Today I am sharing a card I made

1) to help celebrate a fellow stamper - Cathy Fong's upcoming wedding, and
2) to enter the current CAS-ual Fridays' challenge - CFC74 put your {heart} into it, and
3) to enter the current Playing in Paradise challenge - PPC#88 Is there an Echo in the post, and
4) to enter the first challenge of a new challenge blog CAS(E) this Sketch, but sadly I missed the deadline of this one.

For my card I used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch:


Here's my card:

The hearts are punhed from pink card stock.  The wedding cake stamp is from Stampin' Up, I stamped it in black and sponged Spun Sugar (Range Distress) ink over it; and used glossy accent to add shine.  I am still learning how to make a CAS (clean and simple) card, I like this one, but then I start to wonder if it is not finished!  LOL  Anyway I should not overthink it right?!  :)

Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy the rest of the week!

Hanging Snowflake

Happy Friday to all! 

I am so excited to share a project today, I got a new stamp - Dazzling Snowflake from Hero Arts and the matching frame cut; and I've got some time to play with it!  I stamped it on acetate with white StazOn, die cut it and hung it in in/on an open card frame with twine and jump ring.  Ta da....

On the inside of the card I stamped a greeting (also from Hero Arts) with Frost White ink (ColorBox).  Card measures 5 x 6 inches.  I am going to enter it to the current Hero Arts monthly challenge - Make a Holiday Card

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
