Backyard Bugs Thanks A Buzzillion

Hello everyone! I'm up on Sunny Studio's blog today with an inspiration for you next spring. I'm using last year collection called Backyard Bugs and it's so adorable. To represent spring, I choose to be more colorful for this card. A happy card that will make anybody's day!


I started with a piece of 4"x5.25" white cardstock and blend Squeezed Lemonade,Spun Sugar and a little bit of Worn Lipstick Distress Ink in the bottom. I stamped all the images with black Versafine ink and watercolor them with Distress Markers. Then I cut the hill from green cardstock for the flower's ground. The flowers have different colors. They are so pretty that even the bugs are gathered around them. I also add yellow sequins on the center of the flowers, it adds more dimensions. Which one is your favorite bugs? Mine are the ladybugs, tiny and super cute.


Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you all have a wonderful day.

MFT Sketch Challenge 314 : Out Of This World

Hello crafty friends! Happy new year to you and your beloved ones.
I have a big news to share with you all that I will be guest designing for MFT Challenge & Inspiration Blog!! Woot! I'm beyond happy and excited for this month. You know that I love to take a participation on this challenge everytime. What a great way to start a new year, really. So here's the first sketch for this month.


I follow the sketch and attach pretty tight with it this time. I create a window that will take you to another galaxy. I cut the window and make a background by blending Black Soot, Tumbled Glass, Seedless Preserves, Shaded Lilac Distress Inks and finished it with white ink splatters. I also add some clear Wink Of Stella to make a stardust in the night sky..it's so pretty in real life. I tried my best to show you with a detail photo below. I watercolored all my images and cut it with the coordinating dies. I keep the color scheme as I want it. The sentiment is heat embossed with silver embossing powder on an eggplant cardstock. For an extra fun, I add googly eyes for the aliens and glossy accent on some parts. 



Thank you so much for stopping by today. I wish you an awesome day!

Cruisin By To Say I Love You

Hello everyone. First, I would like to say Happy New Year to all of you and your beloved ones. Thank you so much for everyone who always support me and encouraged me to do all the things that seem impossible at first, but hey..here I am now. Me and all the talented ladies from Sunny Studio Stamps are having a blog hop with LOVE theme. Do you think is it too early for a Valentine's day card? :)


I created an interactive slider card with a sweet couple strolling around the street from Sock Hop stamp and it's coordinating dies. I start with a piece of 4"x5.5" white cardstock and blend some green ink for the grass. I also use some tree dies to complete the scene. I mix the sentiment both from Sock Hop and Fresh & Fruity to create a lovey-dovey one. This card is so easy to make and so much fun. Here I want to show you a closer look and more details of the card.



I hope you love it as much as I do. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Birthday With A Cherry On Top

Hello everyone. Lexa here with a super sweet card featuring Fresh & Fruity stamp and it's coordinating dies. It brings out the summer vibe earlier than you expected, I hope it's ok with you. :)


I start my card with a piece of 4.25"x5.5" watercolor paper, I use my Kuretake Gansai Tambi to create the background. Here's a tip how to create a watercolor background like this..first, I wet the surface of my paper and start to smooshing the colors. Be bold! Don't be afraid to make mistakes, blend all the colors until you think it's enough. You can also press up the watercolor with paper towel if you desire a lighter color. It's super easy and so much fun!
I stamped all my images with Versafine black ink and color them with Distress Markers, then cut them all with the coordinating dies. I want to arrange all the fruity fruits diagonally accross my card. But before that, I die cut some vellum circles as a guide and it's also give you the bokeh effect. I glued the vellum with a little bit of glossy accent, make sure you didn't put too much or it will become a mess. I white embossed the "happy birthday" from Blissful Baking on a piece of black cardstock and created a fin-tail banner.


Last but not least, I add some waterdrops emblishment from Pretty Pink Posh. It's kinda give you a wet and fresh look. Thank you so much for stopping by, I wish you an awesome day!

Last Minute Christmas Tags

Hello everyone! Lexa here to share a last minute Christmas tags with you. Keep it simple and use the same layout, I think it's the best advice I can give you. All the images from Christmas Icons stamp and the coordinating dies are perfect for tags, I choose a classic Tag Toppers Dies and Fishtail Banner II Dies.


First I cut 4 pieces 2"x4.25" panel from white cardstock and shaped them one by one with the dies. I also prepared some leftovers Christmas patterned papers for the tags. I stamped all my images with Versafine black ink on watercolor paper and colored them with Distress Markers.
The stitched circle are blended with Mowed Lawn and Cadied Apple Distress Inks. I love the classic color combination for Christmas, red and green will never go wrong. The sentiments on the tags came from various stamp set, Holiday Style and Bundled Up. Last touch is Gold Wink of Stella on the bottom part of my tags. It looks so sparkling in real life. I choose the white and red chevron ribbon, it matches my tags perfectly. Here, I want to show you closer looks of my tags...




Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you get inspired. Have a wonderful Christmas and happy holidays! :)

Merry Christmas To Yours

Hello everyone. Lexa here again with another inspiration for a holiday theme card. I mix up non-holiday stamps and pair it with a Christmas sentiment, I must say that I love how it turned. I never see real snow in my life, ever! But I imagine it will be pretty to see snow falling on Christmas night.


I don't know if you notice it or not, but I use the panel with Sunny Semi Circles dies as a leftover from my last card. Never waste them, I'm pretty much a scrapper. Hehe. I stamped some images from different sets :
- The house and mailbox are from Happy Home
The trees are from Gleeful Reindeer
- The lights and the dog are from City Streets
I stamped all of them with Versafine black ink and watercolor them with Distress Markers. After I finished with the coloring, I die cut all of them with the coordinating dies -a time saver. I blend Peacock Feather Distress Ink in the background, then add some snow with white gel pen. I also add some snow on all the images in the scene, let the snow marker do it's magic. For an extra sparkle I add Stardust Stickles on the night sky, it looks so pretty. Last step, add the scenery on a piece of burlap with foamtapes. Here's a closer look...


Thank you so much for stopping by, I really hope you like my card. Have an amazing day!
