Sentimental Sundays: Easel Card


Hello everyone! How are you guys doing?! All’s well and very busy at my end here. This week the challenge at Sentimental Sundays is to make an Easel card. Our sponsors are Fred She Said and Milk Coffee.



I kept the oval inside blank for now but it will be filled in later by my aunt. I used the DCWV Coral Couture stack, this paper was originally off white and inked it with Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo distress inks to get the perfect redish brown colour. The flower is handmade.


Please stop by the Sentimental Sundays blog to check out what the other designers created. Until next post, have an absolutely fantastic time!

lots of love,


PS: this card was made on order for someone’s 50th wedding anniversary.

Lia Stampz: A note of Thanks.


It's that time again!  Time for a new challenge! It's November and a time where a lot of us reflect on what we are thankful for.  This fortnight, make a Thank You card!

This fortnight we were given this absolutely adorable and pretty stamp called “Blue Tit Bird” by Lia Stampz. Here is what I created based on CASE Study inspiration.


HAHA I know I went a bit overboard considering that Angeline Yong’s card is just perfectly simple, but I really wanted to add a lot of dimension and layers.

The birdie is colored with Classic Faber Castell color pencils. The multi coloured paneling is a result of playing around with distress inks and then finally running it through the bug.

I hope you all will join us over at Lia Stampz this fortnight, I am sure we all have our thank you cards ready at the go! I can’t wait to see your thank you creations!! Link up people! Have a super great day!



PS: I really want to buy Distress Markers. Copics is not an option for me but I can see myself working with distress markers as it would make my coloring look a bit better and they will fill fill in the “white gaps” left by pencil colouring. So my question is, should I buy them or not?

I forgot to add them in the cart and checked out, so thought I’d ask your opinion about distress markers.
