Unity Stamp and Misti Hop {26 May 2017}


Hello Everyone!
I am so excited to participate in this Awesome Blog Hop showcasing Unity Stamps and My Sweet Petunia's Misti tool.

I hope you came from Maureen's blog, and if you didn't you might want to start from the beginning at My Sweet Petunia.
I'm sure you will be inspired by all the wonderful creations as you hop with us.
If you would like to connect with me, you can find me on Instagram (@karylim) or on Pinterest (Karylim).

I had a great time playing with Misti, and also the Misti Creative Corners.
Here's my first card:


On this card, I created the background piece with Misti Creative Corners and Copic Markers. The markers I used are B14, RV55 and Y13.  I love how easy it is to create a simple background.


 I used the cute stamp Life is Better by Phyllis Harris, stamping with Misti makes it so easy to get a perfect impression.


For my second card I used the Angie Girl - Missing You Girl stamp and coloured her with Copic Markers and fussy cut around the image.  The background piece is created with Distress Oxide inks. After inking the piece I sprayed a thin mist of water on it.  When it dried, I added another layer of Frost Sheer Shimmer Spritz to give it a really sparkly effect. When everything is dry, I used the Misti to stamp the sentiment at the bottom right corner. I really love how easy it is to get my sentiment stamped perfectly and exactly where I want it to be.  I embossed the sentiment with clear embossing powder and assembled the card.

Here is a close up.  It looks so pretty in real life.

My third card is basically a one layer card using Phyllis Harris' Always From the Heart stamp set.  I adore this image and the lovely sentiment.  I wanted the sentiment in a light blue ink so it goes with the rest of the image - I stamped it several times with the Misti.


Thank you so much for stopping by.

Your next stop is the lovely Kia Gibson-Clapper.

Please remember to comment along the way and as a token of appreciation, there are wonderful prizes to be won along the way - 3 prize packs from Unity and winner's choice of an Original or Mini MISTI. How Awesome is that!!

Woo-hoo!! Congratulations to Angela and everyone at Unity!
We have so many awesome new kits releasing and I cannot wait to show you the cards, so let's get into it...

Kit of the Month is always my favourite kit from Unity.  I love, love, love the Kit with so many amazing images.  Here's May's KOTM.

I coloured the butterfly with Copic Markers and used a stencil to add the stars in the background
This is my fave image, she is coloured with Copics and the background is a stencil from Memory Box



After colouring the butterflies, I used a sunray stencil by MFT, and used the Clarity brush to softly blend the inks.
I used Distress Oxide Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber and Broken China.
Here are the new Phyllis Harris kits:

I used copic markers for the above card. The birds are a die from Memory Box. 


All colouring with Copic markers. The border die is from Pretty Pink Posh.



Here is my very first video showing how I coloured the image:

Floral Birthday Cards


May is the month of birthdays in my family.  My sister and my mum will be having their birthdays just 2 days apart.

This year, both of them will be receiving floral cards using Altenew stamps.


The first card is for my sister - I used Altenew's Adore You stamp set coloured with Copic Markers.  I love how it turned out.  The background is done using a stencil.


The second card is for my mum.  On this card, I used the Altenew set Best Mom and the sentiment from Beautiful Day.  The flowers are colored with Copic Markers and fussy cut out and adhered on the card.

I made a lot of cards recently - will be posting more soon.

Have a great day!

Hello!


Reorganising my craft space, I realised I have hoarded quite a number of Altenew stamp sets which have not seen ink! What better way to get me going by playing along with the Altenew Inspiration challenge for April
Such a pretty picture, isn't it?  I love the sweet frangipani flowers (that's what we call them in Asia) that Sveta captured in her photo.  They remind me so much of my childhood.

Here's my take of the inspiration challenge:


For the background, I used the Awesome Halftone Circles set.  The circles were inked with Sea Glass, Ocean Waves, Sapphire, Buttercream and Mango Smoothie inks.

The focal point flowers are from the Garden Treasure set.  They are coloured with Copic Markers - B95, B93, B91 and B000; Flower centre - YR15, Y15 and white gel pen.  The leaves are from Camellia - Build a Flower set inked with Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades and Evergreen inks.

I really had fun putting this card together.

Thanks for visiting me.

Unity Hop {5 April 2017}


No automatic alt text available.

Hi Everyone! So glad you are joining us for the Hop!

Let's get straight into the cards...

 Here is a card from April's sentiment kit.  I love the huge blooms and I think there's so much one can do with this set. I used copic markers to colour the blooms.

This is fun rabbit, and it was quite a challenge to colour him.  I love that the image is so huge and fills up the card.  I had the sentiment on the inside of the card.

Look at this awesome friendship stamp, love the sentiment!
