Less Is More - Week 87 Love & Marriage

Hi everyone,

I decided to join this week challenge from Less is More : Love & Marriage.

When it comes to stamps collections, I'll say proudly that I have quite a large selections. Surprisingly I don't have much on wedding /love themed. I can't even found the word "CONGRATULATION", which should be common sentiments.

So, this is what I can come up with ..


- Stamp: BoBunny Petal Pusher Clear Stamp
- Sentiments: Inkadinkado Sending Wishes
- Tools: Marta Stewart heat tools
- Versamark Watermark
- Inkadinkado Emboss powder

Using versamark watermark pad, I stamped the flowers image on a white textured cardstock, sprinkled it generously with embossing powder then heat it using the heat tool from Martha Stewart.
Once it's cool down, I cut all flower in details and paste in on top of each other to make the 3D effects. Glued it to the card, stamped and embossed the sentiments .. and lastly, added the square line with gold marker.

Well, I hope you like it ... and Have a great weekend!! :)
Thank you for stopping by :)

For boys:


- Paper: Bo Bunny Whoo-ligans Collections

The image was pencil-colored, which is not come up really good in the picture. It supposed to be a gradation of dark blue green to light blue green on the monster body, gradation blue for the feet and hand. My son thinks it's the cutest valentines :)

Unfortunately, I did not get a chance to take picture of finish mini cards on girls' valentines ..  hope you get the idea :|

- Paper: Bo Bunny Smoochabel collection
- Stamped Image: Penny Black Clear Stamp Hugs
- Ink: Inkadinkado purple/lavender chalk Ink

All edges was inked with Inkadinkadoo Ink. At the end I totally destroyed the pad :(

And here is a special valentine for teachers:

- Stamped Image: The Greeting Farm - Miss Anya Love, colored with watercolor.
- Tools: Martha Stewart Heart Trim Edge Punch, punched on Martha Stewart glittered paper from her Enchanted Woodland collection.

Estella's Birthday Card

A new neighbor just moved in a couple weeks ago from Colorado. Surprise, surprise... one of their daughter is the same age as Abby .. and more surprise, her birthday is on the same date as mine .. February 6th!! :))

Once again, little miss Abby, placed an order for my handmade card. She choosed Anya, from The Greeting Stamp, and requested that Anya had a black hair, like hers. Unfortunately the hair did't turn out as I expected. I tried to pressed the coloring pencil as hard as I can, but I wish it had a darker black, instead of grey-ish black.

- The Greeting Farm rubber stamp
- EK Tools Punch: Flourish Square
- K&Co Confetti - 12x12 Designer Paper Pad

Here is a closer look:

Cupcake - Birthday Card

This card I made for my daughter's BFF who lives a few doors away. Earlier this week, when she come over for a playdate, we had a conversation that involved different types of cupcakes, favorite cupcakes .. etc. So when Abby, my DD, asked me to create a card for her, all I had in minds was C.U.P.C.A.K.E :)

Here it is ..

I used Sweet Thing wood stamp from Penny Black, which I adored so much. Had fun cutting Mimi and her cupcakes, as my DD stands so close beside me, to make sure that I did not cut her legs off :)

As for the the cupcakes border .. thanks to EK tools cupcake punch.


Hope you enjoy this card, as much as my DD does :)

Thanks for peeking! :)
