Baking, cupcakes, .... Something I love to do when I totally have ample of time & during the Chinese New Year. Loves to bake so much.

Here is my card design to enter this challenge.

 Front view of my card design. I made 4 small squares. Each square holding a stamped image. I coloured with FaberCastell water colour pencil. These images I used; giving an imagination of baking, offering & tasting.

This is the inside view of my card design. 3 cupcakes with hand drawn cake holder...

Card recipe:
1. Papers & card stock from local stationery shop.
2. Acid free paper.
3. Clear stamp designed by Adam Pescott.
4. Glitter glue.

Thank you for visiting my humble blog.

Cupcake 207 - Flowers

Cupcake Craft challenge for this week is about Flowers.

Here is the rule:
(extracted from their blog)


Now pay attention peeps! Your image needs to include some kind of flower. We will not be accepting entries that simply have floral paper or some flower embellies! ;)


Luckily enough that I have a clear stamp (I forget which paper craft magazine I get from) where a girl holding a bunch of flowers.

Here is my design to enter this challenge.

A view of my entire card. When I think about flowers, it comes to my mind about girls. So, I wanted to have something red & purple in my card design. Mix & match with embellishment & flower pattern papers, it turns out to be a simple & nice. ^_^

A nearer view of the image. I know that sometimes I have been neglecting my blog post but I was busy coloring some images.... This is one of the image I colored. Nicely stamped & colored. I have been using Luna Aquarrel water color pencil but this image I used the FaberCastell water color pencil. Love it too. Some of the color from FaberCastell are totally pastel in color when your medium mixed with water.

In this Happy Birthday sentiments, the words are heat embossed. It is hardly to see the embossed word here. I added a little bit of color from Sharpie permanent marker. Added some glitters on the stamped image & roses.

Here is my card recipes:

1. Paper & card stock from local stationery shop.
2. Docrafts – Spring Time acid free paper.
3. Doily lace from local store.
4. Distress ink from Ranger distress ink – Aged Mahogany.
5. Glitter glue.
6.  Paper roses from local store. 

Thanks for viewing my design.

Scrap booking using Canvas

Yesterday I managed to made another scrap book.

However, this round I made it by using canvas board for oil / acrylic painting & I loves the outcome.

My scrap book canvas design is as below.

I used a canvas board (140x180mm). I color the canvas edge using Distress ink from Ranger distress ink - Walnut Stain.

Left side of canvas board:
1. Punch paper (white paper acid free paper for graphic designer use): MS Punches - Cherish & Ranger distress ink - Aged Mahogany.
2. Pearls
3. Roses: added some glitter glue
4. Swirl: Die cuts (forget which co. as I went to a craft lesson with free flow embellishments)

Right side of canvas board:
1. Punch pattern paper: 7gypies (Fluer De Lys), MS Punches - Doily & Ranger distress ink - Aged Mahogany.
2. Cut out a pattern paper: Webster's Pages (Western Romance: Sweet Romance)

 Nearer view of the glittered roses and a look of myself. (^_^)

Nearer view of the sentiments from Kaiser & stamped on Docrafts (Spring Time). The paper edge was colored with Ranger distress ink - Walnut Stain & added glitter glue.

I choose "a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step" as my self portrait sentiment because this is my first time to go for photo shooting. I have been wonder how would I look like for a real photo shooting & I was satisfied with the outcome after all the posing instructed by the photographer. I really thank to the photographer because he managed to capture the photos scene that I really want. (perhaps because of my dresses then he managed to get the idea.. hahaha)

That's all for now. Stay tuned.

Craft shopping day

This month I went for craft shopping & I bought a lot of things. Crafters do shop for their craft supplies. Best part of all, crafters don't felt tired to shop their goodies as things were so adorable, cute & fantastic. Do you have the same thought as me? ^_^

Just to share what I have purchased.

 Kreaxions products from Popular Book Fest 2012 at KLCC.

Bought some paper crafts magazines & they have free clear stamps. I love clear stamps. To those who wants to add collections of your clear stamps, do check from time to time at bookstores.

These craft supplies bought from Arts Friends at The Gardens, Midvalley. They have added more craft supplies there.

Selamat Hari Raya 2012

Hi everyone

Guess must be missing me as I have not been craft blogging for a month.
A little busy with many activities after the HMM at Penang.

Here is one of my project - Salam Aidilfitri 2012. Instead of greetings cards, I made greeting tags. This is my 2nd trial for a tag project. The first one was CNY 2012 - made greeting tags too.

 Personally, this greeting tags also suits for hamper tag. I made a few before & given to my relatives during the CNY 2012.

Greeting tags recipes:
1. Any stock cards as long it is thick enough.
2. Handmade ketupat using strips of paper used for quilling.
3. Hand drawn line for ketupat.
4. Sentiments - Salam Aidilfitri (printed)
5. Kreaxions punches
6. Distress ink from Ranger distress ink - Walnut stain. Used for ketupat edge & paper edge.
7. Ribbons for a tag.

Wishing here to all my Muslim friends, Selamat Hari Raya.

Stay tuned!
