To puffier you want it to be, apply a thicker layer of the glossy accent :)

For my next card, I did some foiling with a glue pen (since I do not have Minc or a laminator).

Just remember after applying the adhesive, let it dry a bit but not completely dry before applying the foil (pretty side up!).

Oh and did I mention Unity Stamp has a SALES going on right now?


Happy shopping and happy weekend :)

Chinese New Year Flowers

Happy Chinese New Year! 
It's the FIRST day of the lunar new year and right now, I'm meeting up with loved ones and feasting away :)

So, to usher in the beautiful new year, I made this bouquet of lilies from JGW Flower Boxcard Bouquets for my DT post on the SVG Attic blog.

I chose RED because it is the traditional colors for the new year and it's BRIGHT! :)

I also handwritten the word  which means fortune or good luck and embossed it in gold on the tag. I also added some Viva Decor liquid pearls and tied it with some Trendy Twine in Lemon Peppermint.

Lunar Animals & the Year of the Monkey

Hello and happy weekend!

It's ALMOST New Year and today is the EVE -- where we will be having reunion meals with our family. 

I made a few cards using Mama Elephant's cute lunar animals and extras stamp set. It was too cute to resist and just perfect for Chinese New Year cards!

For my first card, I wanted to fit all 12 zodiac animals on it but couldn't (haha!) so I did 3 animals instead. The previous year was the Year of the Ram (sheep), this year in gold is the Monkey and for next year it's the Chicken. Hence, why these 3 animals were picked :)

I added the Chinese hat and angpow (red packet) for the monkey and added some gold glitter cardstock to highlight him, since it is his year after all :)
I also gold embossed the 福 word in gold (which means good fortune/luck).

For my next cards,  I created a scene using the fortune cat and the monkey again -- plus lanterns, firecrackers, cherry blossoms and more! I colored each of it using my Copic markers, then cut out each element and pieced them together. (Thank God for Silhouette PixScan
Took me some time, but I liked how it turned out!

For the backgrounds, I used the WRMK Next Level embossing folders which are AMAZING if you see it in real. The dimensions are just WOW! I also added some Gold glitter Viva Decor to add to the shine.

And I can't seem to get enough of these lunar animals, I made another card!

For my first card, I did my own galaxy sky background using some Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors. With some random colors peeking through and white paint as stars, you can make your own galaxy too!

For the cute characters from the Little Outer Space kit, I have stamped and colored them in with my copic markers. Then fussy cut it, adhered it onto my card using some pop up foam tape for the extra dimension.

For my next card, I stamped the "Adaline" Angie Girl onto some watercolor cardstock and colored her in with my Copic markers.

Then I used my new Molotow masking liquid pen to "mask off" the Angie Girl. Once dried, I painted in the background with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors then I simply peeled off the masking layer! I used an adhesive remover to help speed up the process.

3-in-1 Sweet Cards for Valentine

Hello! :)
I know I've not been posting that frequently recently... so I'm back with a fun Inspiration Time with The Cutting Cafe.

This week we are using the BIG Expressions kits and this Sweet Big Expression Printable & Cutting File is just perfect for Valentine.

So, the fun part about this file is, I made 3 cards from just 1 cut! 
Talk about saving time :)
Perfect for those of us who are busy but need multiple cards.

So, here's how I did it.
First I cut the SWEET word on a white cardstock. 
Using the "blanks" as a see through, I backed it with some sweet pink Crate Paper patterned papers from the Hello Love collection. Then I just added another patterned paper along with some pearls using my Viva Decor paper pen.

For my next card, I used the letters that were cut from my first card as a mask. I adhered it using some temporary adhesive and inked the background with some Tim Holtz distress ink {abandoned coral & picked raspberry}. Then I removed the mask and revealed the white words! :)

And for my final card, I used the words from my second card which acted as a mask as the letters instead! Since it's all inked up nicely, it makes a sweet ombre effect on a simple background with heart stamps from The Ton.
