Can I make it on time for Christmas?

Seems like recently I've been playing the missing game quite often. My sincere apologies. I've been away to attend my sister's graduation in Australia. We had a swell time. It was so awesome that I think I lost track of time... I can't believe it's christmas already?

So lil time, so many things to do, so many cards to send out, gosh...I might have to resort to e-cards :S I've been a bad blogger and a bad friend... still hope I'm able to send out my Christmas cards on time to all my friends... guess I'll have to burn midnight oil tonight then. If my cards don't reach on time I would like to wish all my Friends who are celebrating this holiday season " HAVE A BLESSED CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR"

Here are some cards I did that I would like to share...

In a Christmas Mood!

November it's here already?! I really can't believe how time flies... I'm here in my crafting space listening to Christmas songs from YouTube while crafting. Although usually I prefer the silence when crafting, I'm so much in the Christmas mood I can't help it... :)

Here's a Christmas Tree Card I created :

Made some ornaments with buttons
Recipe for the card:Patterned Paper: Cosmo CricketStamps : 4Klear Stamping
Self made button ornaments
Tools : Fiskars Threading Water Punch

Also Hubby and I stopped by Rasa Sayang hotel, where IWA is having a charity bazaar.
Of course, my first stop was Smidapaper's stall :) So many christmas goodies were featured, which got me into the Christmas mood right away...

Hubby got to play with Sizzix die cut tool...hope this will convince him to get me one *wink*
Last but not least, a group photo with the pretties, Sheila & Cindy :)

Ah choo! Oh my gosh, it's so dusty in here... ahh... my sanctuary. It feels good to be back in my space again. I truly apologize for my absence...

My comeback card is for Smidapaper's Pink Masculine card challenge.
I had my daddy in mind when i made this card... how he's always there as our home handy man... my turn to be handy... made smudges on the sides and on the embellishments as that's represents me being clumsy at handy work :)

The recipe to my card :

Pattered Paper : My Mind's Eye Alphabet soup from Studio calico's Kit
Card Stock : Bazzil Basics, Antalis white card stock
Stamps : Hero Arts (stamped with StazOn Timber Brown)

Embellishments :
"DAD" - painted foam thickers Dear lizzy + American Crafts
1 scrapped corrugated cardboard
3 brads from Making memories
1 thread
1 Moonlight white ink to ink the sides of the card

A colored wish

Just a quick share... a card I made a while ago, with Lily of the Valley stamps. I just adore the cute bears...
It's a quick and simple card. I whipped up this card in 10 mins, did some coloring with color pencils (*feels like a kid again) and added some glitters to the flowers...

Case Study : 7th Challenge

I've been a bad blogger lately... So sorry for being missing for so long. I had so many weddings to shoot for the month of Sept & Oct... In fact, Pixous is fully booked till Nov...

Last Sunday, I had the chance to make a card... A card for My Parents who's celebrating their anniversary end of this month. Surprised my mum with a bouquet of flowers and this card... :D

Also, this card is for the 7th Case study challenge by Mariana Grigsby. Here's the case :


Here's my take :

I distressed the center of the butterfly with some Broken China distress ink to give it the blue-ish look
I love how green, pink & blue blend so well together

The recipe to my card :

Pattered Paper : Girls Paperie (love it so much) - Distressed with Tea DYe & Tattered rose ink.
Card Stock : Bazzil Kraft, Translucent Green Paper (Antalis)
Stamps : Hero Arts Everyday Sayings (stamped with StazOn Timber Brown)

Embellishments :
1 punched Monarch butterfly (distressed/tinted with Broken China)
Laces distressed with tea dye ink.

Another baby card!

This card is for a friend who recently became a father to a baby boy... another September baby... ^_^ like me.

I paper-pieced a blue bib, simple bow and lace on the card... which goes so well with the Lush papers from My mind's eye. Walnut cream cardstock is so easy to use, thanks to Sheila (Smida Paper) for recommending.

Simple and cute take... :)

Also on the side note, SELAMAT HARI RAYA to all my muslim friends and readers who will be celebrating. Those who are traveling, drive home safe... and happy holidays.

Lots of love,

Case Study : 4th Challenge

I'm indeed a very lucky girl...because during Jessy's last trip to Penang, she gave me a lovely RAK.
THANK YOU FOR THE WONDERFUL RAK Jessy... She's just so sweet. The RAK was so inspiring and just right for Case Study's Challenge #4.
90% of the card was made from items from the lovely RAK :)

For the challenge, we have to create a card based on the lovely creation of Makiko Jones :

Here's my take :
Inspired by Makiko's card color (Kraft, Green, Orange) and layout of the card.

The close-up :
When I saw the butterfly die cut from the RAK, I fell in love with it immediately... and it's so precious I had to make sure I didn't spoil it while trying to distress it.

The recipe to my card :

Pattered Paper : My Mind's Eye from Jessy
Card Stock : Bazzil Kraft
Stamps : Hero Arts (stamped with StazOn Timber Brown)

Embellishments :
1 die cut butterfly from Jessy (distressed with Tattered Rose (my all time fav. distress ink color))
1 paper rose from Jessy (also distressed with Tattered Rose)
1 paper doily from Jessy
3 pearls

Fiskar's Threading Water Punch

When they all come together, tada... A sweet card inspired by two lovely people, Jessy and Makiko.

Thanks for dropping by.

Love ya lots, Josie

The close ups:

The Recipe:
Pattern paper : Cosmo Cricket (Early Bird), My Mind's Eye (Cute, Lush)
Stamps : Hero Arts
Embellishments : Brads (Making Memories)
Tools : Fiskar's Threading Water Punch

Thank you for dropping by...

Love, Josie
