Personalised Card Envelopes…

26 Jun

Hey there..

I shared a wedding card envelope I made for a colleague a couple of months back..  and today I am to share a few more which I had made…

Chip and Dale theme

Hot Air Balloon theme

Hello Kitty theme

I have included manila tags for personal messages.

When it’s tough to decide what gifts to buy for a special occasion, gift vouchers or cash seems to be a practical choice.  It allows the recipient that freedom to get what they need. A personalised card will bring about the sender’s  thoughtfulness and effort in the gift giving. And the card will serve as a memento to the recipient. : )

Thank you for popping by!

Have a great day ahead! : )

 

Playing at More than Words & Mixed Media Place Challenges…

12 Jun

Hi there…

It has been quite sometime since I played in challenges… And today I am going to submit a layout for

More than words June Challenge  and

image

Mixed Media Place May Challenge

image

 

 

And below is my take…

image

The requirements for “More than Words” cHallenge is to include the following:

Word Inspiration – IMAGINE
Creative Challenge – GET MESSY

and I let myself go free flow with the paints, mists, mediums, glitters etc for this layout and really GET MESSY. It was so much fun.

The colour inspiration come from the “Mixed Media Place” challenge board – I love the glittering blue and the nature in it… and that inspires me to create a layout which covers the respective elements.

Here are the close ups:

Customized wedding card envelope…

3 Mar

Hi there!

image

I am sharing this envelope card which I had made for a colleague who hosted her wedding on the beach at our popular tourists cum locals attractions at Sentosa. This is my first time attending a beach wedding as most couples here in Singapore hosted their banquets in air-conditioned venues. It was a lovely experience… Thankfully, we were blessed with a great evening of good weather and enjoying the sea breeze was such a bliss.

In our Chinese custom, we usually insert money into a red packet presented to the wedding couple as a token of good wishes. Red is considered a symbol of good luck and happiness.

 

image

 

And yes, you don’t see a RED packet here… I differ from the usual norm and made this card for Mel. Since her wedding is on the beach and she likes blue, my main color scheme is thus blue.

The wedding coupke stamp image is from Lili of the Valley – a stamp manufacturing company in UK. They have lovely stamps and do check out their web if desire.🙂

I like to enter this card for following challenges:

All Sorts Challenge – Week 352 Sentiment in focus 

Create and Inspire Challenge 40 – Anything goes

Crafting from the heart Challenge 101 Anything goes

Wishing Mel and Shang a blessed marriage.🙂

Playing in “Less is more” card challenge

22 Feb

hi there

I am sharing the below card for the “Less is More” card challenge and the theme is “Add some texture“.

image

The gal image and quote is from Mama Elephant “shooting star” stamp set and I had watercolured the image using Peerless watercolours.

As for the texture, I applied dimensional gold paint over a Stars stencil and let dry overnight before I adhered the watercolour card stock to a folding base card.

Sharing Scallop shaped cards

21 Feb

HI there…

How’s the day been for you? : ) Hope all is well.

I am sharing two adorable cards here and I hope they bring some smiles to you.

image

 

image

I used “My favorite things stitched mini scallop circle stax” to create the base card.

The images are hand stamped, embossed and watercolored by me using the Japanese Gansai Tambi watercolours set. I really love this set of vibrant colors.

The unicorn image of first card is from “The Greetimg Farm” while the elephant image is from “My favorite things BB Adorable Elephants”.

The images are just so adorable. Do you agree? :p

Hope these cards cheer up your day.

Thank you for coming by! : )

cheers

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Happy Monkey Year!

9 Feb

Hey there!

Happy Monkey Year to all who are celebrating the Chinese New Year!

image
Today is the second day of the first month of the lunar calendar and this year marks the Monkey year according to Chinese zodiac.
The cloud dies and the monkey image are from Mama Elephant. The tiny bow is from Waffle Flower and the Chinese wordings are from Cotton Bunnies – a local online store.

For those who don’t read Chinese – the word “恭喜发财” which “Gong Xi (恭喜)” means congratulations and “Fa Cai (发财)” means “to become rich”. Thus, “Gong Xi Fa Cai” means “WIshing you to be prosperous in the coming year”.

As for ”万事如意”, it means “May all your wishes be fulfilled”.

Hope this adorable card cheer you up even if you do not celebrate the Chinese New Year!

Thank you for popping by! : )
