Gold Striped Background

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a great weekend, I'm spending my Sunday afternoon catching up on blogging and visiting my favorite blogs.
Bold striped background #cascard in gold and coral with #PTIstamps
I've been seeing a lot of cards with bold stripy backgrounds and I just love them. Here's my take on the bold striped background. I've used gold shimmer tape to create it. The flowers are from PTI, I've watercolored them with Abandoned Coral Distress Ink and Gansai Tambi watercolors.

2 Watercolor Cards

Hello everyone! I'm just popping in to share 2 watercolor cards I shared on other social media platforms.
The first one has a rainbow watercolor wash background on which I added some white gelato accents through a stencil. I also inked up a Waffle Flowers Crafts die-cut doily with white pigment ink and used it as a stamp.

Welcome, little one

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a great week. Today I'm sharing a CAS card with Reverse Confetti stamps, aren't those koalas the most adorable bears you've ever seen! I just can't get enough of them.
CAS card using #ReverseConfetti Bear Hugs Stamps. Aren't those koalas the cutest?
I don't have coordinating dies for these so I used my Silhouette Cameo's Pix Scan mat to cut out the stamped images. I found a way to save the cut files so that I can quickly cut using a regular Silhouette cutting mat the next time and then stamp the image on it. This'll save a lot of time as I won't have to stamp the images, mount on the Pix Scan mat, take a picture, transfer to my laptop and generate the correct trace area every time I want to stamp and cut. It's really easy, I'll post a tutorial soon.

Altenew Mother's Day Card

Hello everyone! A very Happy Mother's Day to all the lovely Moms out there. It's already Monday over here in Singapore. My Mother's Day was really special, my 4 year old daughter gifted me a fan and a canvas bag with her artwork on them. She made them at school with her teachers' help, hid it and gave it to me on Sunday morning. I was so touched, this is first time she has gifted me something :)

Pretty Peonies

Hand stamped card with patterned paper and #wplus9 pretty peonies.
Hello everyone! I recently got a pack of double sided origami paper from a local $2 store. It's a little thin but it's got these amazing patterns in some amazing color combos which make great backgrounds for cards. I can't get enough of them so I made 4 cards at one go! I'm new to making more than 1 card at a time but I'm loving it!
Hand stamped card with patterned paper and #wplus9 pretty peonies.
The stamps are from the Pretty Peonies WPlus9 set which I have stamped with Altenew crisp inks.
The sentiments are from Stamplorations.
