Always Been, Always Will

Mother's Day still a few weeks out, but I have a couple people ordering some Mother's Day cards, so I figure I better start early.
I am making this card using the latest releases from Wplus9, which all now is available at i {heart} papers.
I used this gorgeous Spring Blooms set and the sentiment from Strictly Sentiments 4. I love that with these sets I can make clean & simple one layer card while still showing plenty of style.
In case you haven't stop by i {heart} papers lately, check them out, lots of new goodies added to the store, including wood pattern enamel dots (which is a must have for me)!!
Thank you for stopping by here and make it a great day. :)

There's a new stamp company whose debut releases totally amazed me. I mean, from the moment I saw their sneak peek, I know I am going to love them! I made my shopping list with each new sneak peek. I am talking about Altenew.
Altenew owned by the talented Jennifer Rzasa & Tasnim. And I just love their trendy and modern sets. I placed my order on opening day and it arrived wrapped neatly in tissue paper with golden star and a personal thank you note. I was impressed and after petting the sets a few times, I went to play right away and made this card.
Yep, yep, this company jump to my favorite list right away. No, I am not working for them, nor do I affiliate with them. I am gushing about them just because I love their set. That's it. You know how we card maker can go googoo gaga over stamps, right? ;)
I want to play more with the Painted Flower set. This set is simply stunning and I am looking forward to play with this set more.
Enjoy your Wednesday!!

Cherish You

Hi peeps. About a couple weeks ago, I get to share this card & the tutorial on how to make it on CardMaker blog. But, I haven't share it here, so I thought why not. Hah... that and the fact that I don't have new card to share and that I love this card.
I just love that little birdie. I was really happy with the way this card turn out. Maybe this weekend I'll play with this wax emboss resist technique again.
Well, short post today. I woke up with my shoulders hurting all over. Am guessing that being sandwiched between 2 dogs did this. At least I have good excuse to get a massage later. For now, I need to take it easy. Happy Wednesday!

Happy Gotcha Day!

Last night as I was playing around my craft room, I realized that I have so many stamp sets that din't get enough love. And that makes me feel bad. So, I decided to find an inspiration and using sets that I haven't been using for a while.

I found this sweet inspiration pic from Taheerah's Cure For The Monday Blues # 12.

With rescue dog, we don't know when they're actual birthday, so we celebrate the adoption day, what we called "Happy Gotcha Day". At first, I started this card thinking to make birthday card. But then, I saw the heart paw stamp and change my mind and came up with this card instead:

The "happy sentiment is from Avery Elle Fill In The Blank set. And the sweet heart paws & puppy are from Paper Smooches Paws For A Cause set. The yellow patterned paper is from American Crafts Splendid Sunshine 6x6 paper pad. I figure a little shimmer never hurt, so I brushed the heart paws with Wink of Stella Brush Glitter Marker. All of these available at i {heart} papers store.

That's it for me today. Thank you so much for stopping  by here. May your day be a sweet one.

More Fresh Cut Floral Card

Hi peeps. How's your weekend? For me, this weekend been all about family time. I had my cousin and aunt visiting from Wyoming. It's great to catch up with them. Of course, as usual when we have family visiting, we do the whole big family dinner with everyone. It's fun. As I grow older, I appreciate this moment more and more.

Then this Sunday is taking it easy day and I am catching up on my reading. I do have a card to share though. I made this card a couple nights ago. Sharing more Wplus9 & Technique Tuesday goodness.

I used all the goodies I got from i {heart} papers to make this card. The flower are from Wplus9 More Fresh Cut and the sentiment is from Technique Tuesday Say It - Happy set (this set is currently out of stock at i {heart} papers, but there's plenty of other Technique Tuesday sets for your to check  out at the store).  I also use More Fresh Cut Dies to help me make this card in a jiffy. And, for  the flower I used Hero Arts ink cubes (including Soft Cantaloupe & Mint Julep from Garden set and Unicorn from Blackboard set).

Oh, by the way, I found this cool app on FB and I've been having a blast playing with it. Watch it and you'll see how this could be so addicting!! Enjoy! :)

Radiant Neon Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko & Card Maker radiant neon blog hop. You sh ould arrive here from Nancy Hawes blog.

I am so excited when I found out about this hop. Tsukineko is well known for their great quality products and I've been using their products for years. When I received the neon ink pads, I couldn't wait to get inky and these ink pads do not disappoint! The colors are brilliant.

Since, I've been into flowers lately, I decided to make a bright color flowery card.

I just love this radiant neon collection. The juicy pad gives even coverage and stamp wonderfully. To tone down the bright flowers a bit, I used chalk for the center of the flowers "AND BLEND" (psst... this is my electric word that you need to collect!) it with cotton ball. And, of course, I have to add a little bit of gold by adding a gold strip to fancy up the card a little bit. Bright, bold and beautiful is the goal. What do you think?

Also, Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko is hosting a giveaway of a full set of Radiant Neon ink pads. To enter for a chance to win, please visit each blog and collect a word or set of words to complete a sentence. Full details of the giveaway will be on Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko blog.

Wishing I Could Be There

Today, my big brother, Jeff is celebrating his 44th birthday. If you've been following my blog for a while, you know how much I love and admire my brothers.
Growing up, yes, like any family, we argued, got irritated with each other, etc., yet, I always have tremendous respect from him. Whenever we have serious talk, getting advise from him could make me cry (I know it sounds silly and of course, I don't let him know that I wanted to cry, although probably it's written all over my face). 
He's quiet and I didn't even realize his silly side till we're all grown up. I think to a lot of people they view him as a serious person. When he bust the move on my younger brother's wedding, a lot of people were surprise that he got skill. LOL. 
Besides my parents, my brothers are the two people I look up to for so many reasons. Last year, Jeff showed me how sometime you have to make risky decision and take a chance in order to do what's right. You can read it all on this post titled, "Saving A Life". He makes me feel so proud. So very proud.
Today, I am celebrating this wonderful person and I so wish I could be there to celebrate with him and my whole family.
To Jeff, happy birthday and thank you for everything. I love you and thankful to have you as my big brother. I wish I could be there to wish you happy birthday in person, but for now, I hope through this blog post you know that I celebrate you. Love, your li'l sister. :)
