Tutorial : Creating your own project life card with Stamps

One morning last month, I woke to a Facebook post that says "The lucky random winner is… Josie Teh" Boy, did I jumped up from my bed! Yeay I won a giveaway from Kellie Stamps! Swoon. I have been waiting all week to use this pretty baby… :P

Here's what I did with it & I'm going to share it with you how I did it.

First, I trimmed a Bazzil Walnut Cream Cardstock into 4" x 6". Smooth card stocks tend to work better for stamping.

Next, I used Black embossing powder & heat embossed the Stamped sentiment.

 I continue to stamp and filled up the whole paper with grey ink just like the picture below. I used a lighter ink to make the embossed sentiment more prominent.

I still find the stamped sentiment too dark. So, I used some white ink & I started dabbing all over the card.
The sentiments looks faded after applying white ink all over, just the way I wanted it.

To create the star, I used Studio Calico's Mistables. I used a dew drop in Galaxy gold color to apply the ink on to the Star.
 Then, I applied some glitter using my favourite stickles (diamond) 
 The result ...
I embellished the card with a journal tag, some stickers & a picture, we are all set. 
The PL card is now ready :)

Have fun! :)

Working with MME Chalk Studio

Last night, I tried to work out of my comfort zone using a dark background, one large photo & only one piece of patterned paper. Using my favourite brands mostly My Mind's Eye & some embellishments from Crate Paper, I managed to put together a Layout for my Wedding photo… :) More gold splatters from Heidi swap Color shine - Gold (my current fav). Hope you like it!

Thanks for looking!
