3D projects - altered plain box

Sunday, 2 October 2011

Hi...seldom to have 2 posts within one day... So exciting to share a new project today. I was requested by a dear friend to make a gift box for her friend's wedding. It was an exciting challenge in terms of time and budget. But I am quite satisfied with the outcome.

p.s. Thanks the typhoon 8, I can have a day off to finish this project :=0

The paper box was decorated with velvet sticky paper sheet

Handmade tissue paper flower decorated with lace and dollies
I enter this box to the following challenge:

Wedding card series - wedding dress

Hi...This card is totally inspired by this week's the shabby tea room. I choose to create a wedding card this time. I have thought of several ways to present the chevrons pattern...but still not satisfy...

Luckily, after some trials and errors, I find a way to display all the elements. I am using creamy ribbon to create the chevrons pattern on the wedding gown. I have made 2 little blue flowers using ribbons again. The leaves and the frame are in green color. The sentiment was stamped on an orange tag. Lastly, the brown dollies as decoration.

Hope you like it:

3D projects - baby shoe box

Sunday, 11 September 2011

Hi, my friend asked me to create a gift for newborn baby. She especially asked for something 3D and more complex. Eventually, I came up with these and I like the littel shoes so much. Well...I have tested the magnets, they are very strong. And it would be very good to see those little shoes on your fridge!

Tips: I have sprayed a layer of clear fixative onto the pattern paper before making the little shoes, the moisture-proof fixative allow the magnets become more durable.

1 sketch 2 cards

Tuesday, 6 September 2011

Hi...I have been quiet on the blog for the past 2 weeks, but I am still working on my handmade stuff. First of all, I would like to share a happy news - my card has won the Top 3 from Simply Create. Thanks for the designer team!!!

This time, I am using the vertical sketch challenge from moxie fab world and created 2 totally different styles of cards.

Card 1: Cute style. I reverse the sketch and replace the flags with paper clips. I am using the polaroid idea for framing the image. The final outcome is quite musculine.

Card 2: Vintage style. I replace the flags with the dolly and rhinstones. The color theme is inspired from Stampin sisters in Christ.

Birthday card - flower in blue

Wednesday, 24 August 2011

Hi, I am so excited to create this card, because this card is for myself!!! Why I say so? because I would like to participate this week's CASE challenge, and I browsed through the blog (uhm...almost the whole blog!) of Chupa and found out that she can create a new card almost every day!!! What a great productivity! There are so many amazing cards that I cannot make my mind to choose only one. Then an idea came to my mind...how about casing the card that posted on my birthday? Then I can create a birthday card for myself?
What a suprise, when I clicked my birth "day", I found out that there were 3 cards, and 2 of the 3 were for birthday. Haha...so nice !!!

Finally,  I chose this card to CASE!


Here is my creation:

I try to preserve the layout as Chupa did, but my flower is too big, so I make a rectangular frame for it.

My blue tone is different from Chupa's card, as I want to have a brighter color here. 

I also apply glitters  over the flower

Birthday card - It's tea time

Inspiration photo from the Shabby Tea Room

Hi...another new card this week, this card is inspired by Shabby Tea Room of using a tea theme with blue and green. I have seen alot of teapot cards among the crafting world. It's one of the hot theme to create on. But suprisingly, I haven't made one by myself!!! So, I looked up all my stamps and digi to find the tea theme elements.  It's always a fun to look for "pearls" over your treasure box.

This week, Stampin' Sister in Christ wants us to use something from your stash that you 'just had to have' cause you would use it everyday....but have forgotten about...

Actually, I am a kind of "tea-holic" person, need a cup of tea every morning. But I haven't made anything out of my favourite! I think the creation of this card just fit the theme of SSIC :=)

Heehee...I like the flower very much, because it was the wrapping paper of a pair of new shoes. I think the pattern is quite nice, so I keep it till now and turn it into a flower. The sentiment and the cup image was stamped on a piece of tracing paper and I tear it to create a more casual look. Hope you like it.

Thank you for stopping by :=)

Birthday card - full of blossoms

Tuesday, 9 August 2011

Oh... I needed to prepare an important assignment at work last week, so haven't made any cards. It's really "itching" to make cards again. Tonight, I tried to do a simple one layer card (ah..ha, not really my style :=P), but I want to explore new things out of my comfort zone.

I CASEd the card from Cristina. She is really gifted at cardmaking !!!

Here is her card (So great!!!)

Here is my take:

A totally different approach... but I hope you can see the inspiration of using border stamps and the color choice (one row pink and one row red). It's also the first time to use copic markers! Really too green in this area, but it's interesting throughout the coloring process :=)

A little pop-up flower :=)

Thanks for visiting my blog!
