Spread Your Wings @ STAMPlorations

 Hi everyone! Welcome to STAMPlorations December Stencil ChallengeOur very last Stencil Challenge for 2020.

We are all looking forward to exciting happenings and new STAMPlorations products in 2021.  Spread your wings with us.
I'm so in love with the background Arches slimline stencil once I finished sponging it down with ink pad over the stencil.
Then I fussy cut some butterflies and glue them down neatly with PVA glue.
The sentiment is from Trendy Birds 2 stamp set and for little additional interest, I added a touch of pattern near the edges by stamping down random circles.

I look forward to see your creation/s at Mr. Linky soonest.
Enjoy life and wishing everyone happiness and joy, good health and prosperity now and beyond. Let 2021 light us all up in positive mind and provide us all from any illness free living.

Take care dear friends.

Hugs and smiles,

Be Free @ STAMPlorations

Hello December! Hi everyone! I hope all of you are in the best of health and feeling great. So am I. Today the Stencil Design Team and I at STAMPlorations are welcoming you to our new stencil challenge this entire December. I look forward to see your beautiful creation/s at Mr. Linky before 2020 and coronavirus say adieu, hence the title of my creation ~ Be Free! Let's pray 2021 lights up the world and cherish us all with greatest health and joy.

Sharing my project for this challenge inspiration is a slimline card:

I sponged down two different colors from lime green and sky blue ink pads through Circles and Daisies Slimline Stencil on a white card stock.
Then I stamped down some leaves randomly from Trendy Leaves 2 stamp set with Versafine Ink Pad.
Next step was stamping down a few flowers from Big Bloom Factory stamp set using Versafine Ink Pad as well on a white card stock before I fussy cut the six blooms neatly and glue down over the slimline design.
I used the same lime green and sky blue ink pads to color the six blooms using aqua brush. I do have to say it was so therapeutic because I was a little bit under the weather at the time. 
Lastly I stamped down a sentiment from Trendy Birds 2 stamp set on a white card stock and glue it down at the top left corner.

Basically this card speaks simplicity by stenciling and stamping yet it took quite a while to figure out colors and composition like always {smile}. I love the finished result and will keep this card until I'm ready to part with it.

Don't forget to display this graphic in your blog post too.
That's it for now. I look forward to see your work at your blog.
Till then, au revoir.

So Thankful For This @ STAMPlorations Blog Hop & Giveaway

 Hello everyone! Welcome to my blog. My heartfelt thank you for dropping by and that itself  makes me so grateful. I hope our  6th Giving Thanks Hop & Giveaway gives you much happiness and joy, many inspiration and ideas from all the designers' projects. I hope you find mine appealing too {chuckle}.

I created a  mini album cover using brown card stock and layered the surface with scrap papers for thickness. That way the front cover becomes more sturdy. I used two different stencils to create patterns on both sides; one by brushing texture paste through Clustered Hearts stencil and the other using white gel pen through Abstract Oats. The focal point is printable and adjustable digital image available at the store.

This is how it was like in the beginning process. I randomly glue down pieces of reverse paper scraps from die cutting projects few months ago. They're too pretty to let go so I keep in kiv paper file. Then I brush down with black gesso and let dry.

Oreo the cat did an inspection before he let me proceed to next steps. Seriously! {smile}

Good luck to everyone. May you be the lucky one.

Taking my creation into these challenges:
1. Dreaming of Scrap : Anything Goes + Your Fave Color
2. Love To Scrap : LTSCB#139 Anything Goes
3. Crafts Galore Encore : Ch#81 Always Anything Goes
4, A Bit More Time To Craft : Ch#128 Anything Goes
5. More Mixed Media Challenge : Anything Goes + Optional "Black"

Thank you again for visiting me on this day. Truly appreciate you so much.

Hugs and smiles,

Artsy Floral Doodle @ STAMPlorations

 Hello everyone and welcome November. The year is coming to end shortly. Time flies like every other year but 2020 is very different. Started with just an unseen virus that completely change everyone's life including mine. The best time of year we had was January during our family holiday in Penang then came February when the virus spread into my country slowly and aggressively until now. Despite the pandemic, we live on a new normal life and do our best in our daily routine. My radius is just between my home and school with food shopping in between. Still, there are some beautiful moments though rare. What about you?

Enough blab! Let me take you to STAMPlorations November Stencil Challenge. The design team has created amazing paper crafts for inspirations and idea. I made a one layer card (not very me if you know me, lol). I played with ink pads over two different stencils and doodle with black gel pen. Only basic and simple.

I cut a kitchen sponge into small square and press gently over several color ink pads then gently sponging through Lattice stencil to create pretty pattern. I was satisfied with my choice of colors for the background {love love love...chuckle}.

Next step was sponging through Lupinus stencil over the background for the flowers. Black gel pen was again used to outline the stem and leaves through the same stencil. Then I fill up the leaves and stem with watercolors. For additional interest, I used similar black gel pen to doodle the outline. As usual, I like to splatter white paint to complete my creation. I really don't know who did it in the first place and something many do including me {smile}.

I chose a sentiment from Inspirational #2 Clear Stickers and ta-da, it's done.

It has been enjoyable moments being with each and everyone of you visiting my blog and reading your motivational comments which I highly appreciate as well as reading all your comments at STAMPlorations blog the past four days.

I conclude the 7th Birthday Celebration with a watercolor tag in the background holding up a butterfly symbolize one's freedom to roam about freely to his heart's content yet the aimless wander often resulting to lesson in disguise.

I love this beautiful creature resting on Painted Scales background. Giving her some depth simply by doddle her wings with black gel pen.

I stamped a sentiment from Born To Roam stamp set and randomly stamped down some patterns from Artsy Border Maker to nice up the edge. When all done and feeling satisfied, I splatter black paint for additional interest like always.
I sincerely hope you will find my tag inspiring. I've seen some of your gorgeous make at Mr. Linky. Looking forward to see more inspirations by you for me to be inspired as well {smile}.

7th Birthday Celebrations ~ Day 4 @ STAMPlorations

 Hello and howdy-do my lovely friends! I am back on behalf of STAMPlorations as part of their design team bringing you another favorite card recently created in conjunction of STAMPlorations Belated 7th Birthday~Day 4. 

My inspiration creation is what I call serene yet challenging. Only stenciling with homemade texture paste carefully swipe through the delicate boughs and branches; that's where the challenge start. The shop offers two thicknesses of high quality stencil material. If you love making mixed media projects, I recommend you to use the 10ml slimline stencil which is hazy/cloudy white stencil material because it is ideal for heavy use.

I love the texture look after it is dried. Looks something like a stucco wall. I want this to be a simple card and only used blue watercolor paint to add some brightness on the top part. For the sentiment, I stamped a quote from Born To Roam stamp set. For additional interest, I added a stamped leaf from Trendy Leaves 2 stamp set.

So there you have it. I hope you find my stucco card interesting and inspire you to create yours and if/when you do, link up your make to Mr. Linky.

All products in the store, including the birthday release, are instantly 10% off in October, and if you use my code STAMPGIRLASMAH you'll get a further 20% off AND you'll get this not-yet-released Just Plaid square stencil.
That's it. Come back tomorrow for the final showcase.
Stay safe and best of times to all.

Hugs and smiles,

7th Birthday Celebration ~ Day 3 @ STAMPlorations

 Hello again everyone! Oh yes, yes, yes...Day 3 is here celebrating 7th years of STAMPlorations. I'm super excited to share my easy and quick tag made with the newest STAMPlorations products you can get at the shop at special price this month.

I appreciate your time and thank you for visiting me yesterday. I enjoyed reading your comments so much and here's hoping you win something if luck is on your side.

A few up-close shots:

I used white card stock to begin with and die cut using Tag And Nesting Dies. Then I swipe homemade texture paste through Glass Blooms Slimline Stencil to create some random pattern and air dry for a while. Then I drop neutral colors and spritz water over it to let it run freely on the card surface by tilting it.

I stamped Bloomfully ~ Remember flower directly on the dried surface using Versafine ink pad. I started doodling the flowers for depth and additional interest. This is always my favorite part.
Lastly I stamped a sentiment and added butterflies as well to finish off the tag plus black splatter for another additional interest.
So there you have it. I hope you find my tag interesting and inspire you to create yours and if/when you do, link up your make to Mr. Linky.
