Oh Shiitake! I forgot your birthday!

Happy Monday everyone!

Sharing a punny card with you using Taylored Expressions newly released products. I used Turnip the Beet stamp set and coordinating dies to make this card.

I stamped all the veggie images twice from Turnip the Beet stamp set on Sugar Cube cardstock using Oreo hybrid ink. Then coloured the images using copic markers. The using the coordianting die, die cut all the images out.

On a toffee card panel, I adhered all the die cut images randomly covering all the panel. I then trimmed the panel slightly smaller than the card front. I added foam adhesives and adhered the panel on the sugar Cube card base.

The sentiment from the stamp set is white heat embossed on strips of Oreo cardstock using TE white detailed embossing powder. Adhered these strips on the centre of the panel. To tie in the black colour on the card, I added a few TE Oreo enamel shapes.

Here are some closeups

I really love the smilie faces on the veggies. So cute. The punny sentiments in the stamp set is awesome and funny.  Check it out at TE store. All supplies used to make this card are listed below.


Thanks so much for stopping by today. Enjoy the rest of the day!

Four cards using Tone on Tone Foil on Alcohol Ink Background + a Video!

Hello everyone, Welcome back to my blog.

I have a video tutorial to share on how I made the beach background using alcohol inks and tone on tone foiling on the background. I shared a small video on the alcohol ink beach background on my instagram last week and was flooded with a lot of questions. So I thought I will do a video on it.

Now recreating alcohol ink backgrounds is not easy. You will never get the exact same background because you have no control over how alcohol inks move with blending solution and also depends on the amount of blending solution and alcohol inks used. You will find that the background I show you on the video is different from the one on my instagram. But the process of making both the background is exactly the same. So when you make two panels, the background will turns out different on each of the panel. The good thing with alcohol ink is, you can wipe off the areas you are not happy with using alcohol/blending solution/alcoholwipes and start over again.

I made four cards using the beach background and Simon Says Stamp Under the Sea Animals stamp set and coordinating dies. With this intro, here is my video tutorial.

Here are the photos of the individual cards and closeups. It is photo heavy. Make yourself a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy.

The final card: Card #4


All the stamped images are from Simon Says Stamp Under the Sea Animals stamp set from the latest Sending Sunshine release. I coloured them using Prisma color pencils during my holiday last week. I die cut them using the coordinating dies and used them on the cards. All the supplies used to make these cards are listed below.

Winnie & Walter June Rerun!

Hello everyone,

Welcome to Winnie & Walter June Rerun Feature

This monthly feature showcases one of the W&W products by the design team. This product is also on sale for this month only. Plus there is also a challenge and giveaway. I will detail them towards the end of the post.

This month we are featuring, Scenery Into the Woods stamp set.

This set is big 6×8 stamp set. Images are large enough to cover the whole card front. Great images to create background. I used the outline woodgrain image subtly on the background of my card.

I stamped a white background panel with the woodgrain stamp using SSS Fog ink. I used MISTI to stamp couple of times to get even coverage. Then I die cut this panel using the largest of the rectangle die from Essentials: Katherine Cutaway. One the panel, I used Typecast: Cary Cutaway to die cut the word wonderful. I them made a shaker out of the negative panel and adhered the shaker on a Slate Gray card base.

Using MISTI I stamped the “you” sentiment three times in black ink. This YOU sentiment is from In a Word: Love stamp set. To add some colourful elements to the card, I pearl white heat embossed the flower, leaves and foliage from In Bloom: Addie’s Garden stamp set and sponged them with distress inks. I used two shades of each colour: Ripe Persimmon and Carved Pumpkin, Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn, Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed. Using the coordinating die, I die cut the images out. I clustered glued them on the bottom right of the shaker panel.

All supplies used to make this card are listed below.
