Be Merry~!

Morning Everyone!

Did everyone get a head start on those Christmas cards and projects yet?! I sure haven't and barely getting started so if you are a procrastinator like me...Here is something to inspire you to kick off the fun holiday festivities. I made a wine tag using Yeti Fumi! It makes a nice touch if you plan to give it away or just as decor for home. I used a circle spellbinder to cut the ring on top as the punches won't reach that far in.  I also used a 5 petal flower punch to create a poinsettia and finished it off with gems and pearls. The sentiment is written with red pen and traced over with pink glitter gel pen. Hope this was fun for you and get your juices going for the Holiday Season!

Here is a closer glimpse at the hole I cut out to hang over the wine bottle. I punched out a scallop first on the DP and the glue it onto the white than blue base. I than took a circle spellbinder to cut in the center of the scallop shape.

Make a Keiki Smile~!

Hi There!

Just wanted to share the cards I did for the "Make a Keiki Smile"! Made 10 cards total as my contribution. I have been doing this for the past 3 years I believe and it sure makes me happy to know that it makes a difference when everyone comes together for a great cause. The drive is lead by Kris and her aunt. She has the biggest of hearts always upping the number of cards delivered to kids who are in the hospital for the holidays in Mission Hills, CA!  I highly encourage all of you to participate next year because I had a great time and love to see the smiles on children's faces~!

Fang's So Much~!

Hi Everyone!

I recently accepted a new job and just wanted to share with you what I did as my farewell card. In the spirit of Halloween, I was able to use a vampire panda image I have found online. The layout is pretty much simple with embossed bamboo folder from a brand called Darice. I hand written the sentiment "Fang's So Much" to finish it off. Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great rest of the week!

Challenge #27 Color Combo

Morning Everyone!

Can you believe it's already November?!? The year is totally flying by!!  Have you guys had a chance to see Yumi and Fumi's color challenge yet? It's Orange, Black, Green, and Purple!! I got inspired by Leanne's post so wanted to make a non-traditional Christmas card as well. Below is my take on the challenge. Come and join us as the deadline is Nov 8th!  I used Winter Fumi with snowflakes embossed on purple cardstock.  I stamped pine trees and made some snow to finish off the scene with a sentiment from CC designs.  I got a chance to also try out this frost spray effect that I borrowed from my friend on Winter Fumi...can you see how she glows as if snow is actually falling? Totally cool and wished I have put it on the rest of the card too. Pretty happy of how it came out since Color Challenges are the most difficult for me, so you guys are not alone out there if you feel the same hehe. Give it a try and you might surprise yourself just like me =D
