It feels like it has been forever since I last played along with Papertrey Ink’s July Blog Hop Challenge! I took the second “Fruit of Summer” color inspiration as well as Moxie Fab World’s Painterly Palette together and made a simple card.

So here’s my take on both photos. I stamped the triangles in colors that were common between the two photos: pink, dark yellow, light yellow, light green and dark green. I love the bright rows of triangles!

Trifecta Thanks

A close up of the butterfly. I die cut the butterfly from clear cardstock and stamped the coordinating butterfly stamp in white stazon. I love how you can see the white stripes of the butterfly, but still be able to see the colors and sentiment that is underneath it.

I’m back again with Papertrey Ink’s April Blog Hop Challenge and this time, we are going for tilted!


Unknowingly, I ended up using red, white and blue for my card! I stamped the “Thank You” using Big Bold Wishes and fussy cut the sentiment out.

Love the effect 🙂

I then stamped some stripes diagonally across the card base and adhered the sentiment at an angle parallel to the navy stripes. Then I blinged it up with some rhinestones.

Red, White and Blue

Certainly one of the simplest card I’ve made. I think I’ll go fussy cut a few more of these sentiments!

Papertrey Ink’s March Blog Hop Challenge is one my favorite: sequins! I bought a few bags of flat back sequins during my trip in Hong Kong and loved using them on my projects.


I couldn’t help but make another shaker card with sequins 🙂 For the border, I used some fabric tape that I bought from Hong Kong.

Here’s a close up of the coarse glitter, blue-green, pink and silver flat sequins in the shaker cloud.

Papertrey Ink’s February Blog Hop Challenge is challenging us to use Monograms for our blog hop project. I spent the longest time trying to organize my stamps around my monogram!


I made a very small notebook. With a whopping four lined pages. Very small, and not to mention, very useless 😛

Monogram Note Book

There are four lined pages in the notebook, each decorated similarly to the cover. The book is binded by stitching with a piece of brown felt adhered over.

I really enjoy the ombre stamping instead of using copics for shading. For me, the blending is much smoother with inkpads than trying to attempt copic shading.

Mini Striped Tags

February 9, 2013

I was so busy for Chinese New Year that it was only until now that I have time to sit down for some ‘me’ time. I’m finally joining in with Papertrey Ink’s 6th Anniversary Challenge with some tags I made inspired by a photo I saw on pinterest.

I masked the sentiment parts with some Eclipse Masking Tape. These small tags are made with Papertrey Ink’s Fillable Frames #9 die.

Time to get back to work!
