Spring Colors at SCMC

It's time for another Challenge at Stamp and Create with Magnolia.
Our theme for the next 2 weeks is:


For some of us who have snowy cold winters, Spring colors would be anything but white or the color of snow! LOL! I get excited to see grass under melted snow, even if it's not green yet. And when it starts to turn green, I get that happy Springy feeling!

My card today features Meadow Daisy from the Summer Memories Collection. I colored the image using Copic Sketch Markers. I kept is simple to have the daisy as the focal point.

The inside of the card has one of my favorite sentiments and I really don't know the name of this stamp set. I bought the stamp set for only $1.99 from discount store.

Come and join us for chance to win a Magnolia Stamp of your choice! You can also see what my teammates have created for your inspiration when you visit the SCMC Blog.

CC Designs Special Release

Today we have a Special Nurse Release at CC Designs.
There are 3 Nurse Stamps, a sentiment set and an accessory stamp set in this Special Release.
This is Nurse Nancy.  Isn't she a cutie? I love her uniform and bag. 
  (It's been ages since the last time I wore a typical nurse' uniform...white, white a cap, white stockings, white shoes. )
 The sentiment is from the For the Nurses Stamp set and this one is my fave. I'm sure a lot of us nurses will agree!
I have colored the image with Copics.


Drop by the CC Designs Blog to see the rest of stamps and what my teams have created for you!

Mom

As I have mention in my previous post, I have been making simple cards for a fundraiser event and I am not even half way done with my cards.  I wanted to make cards that can fit in a flat envelop and is easy to mail. So in order to accomplish this, my cards have to be flat, single layered (if possible), not bulky with embellishments.  And I also have decided to keep my cards in a A2 size (4.25 X 5.5 inch).  The fundraiser event will be by the end of April so I though of making some Mother's Day cards along with other occasion cards. 

These are a few of my Mother's Day cards and I will make a few more in a different color.
The list of supplies I used here can be found at the end of the post.


I die cut the MFT Lily Flower die from Neenah Solar White Card Stock. Then I colored each die cut using Copic Sketch Markers. I was really inspired by Jennifer McGuire's card using the same die and she also made a really nice tutorial on how to color the die cuts and you can watch her video HERE.
For the background, I used the SSS Heart Mosaic Stencil and used Brilliance Moonlight White ink pad and a blending tool on a yellow card stock. I then die cut the word Mom 4 times, from the SSS Craft Die on black card stock.  Then I layered them to have more dimension.  Finally, some clear Wink of Stella for some shimmer.


Here's my second Mother's Day Card. I used the SSS Best Mom Ever Stamp set.


I stamped the flowers using Memento Angel Pink ink pad then I colored the flowers with Copic Sketch Markers. Then I cut each flower and leaf. I cut a piece of SSS Woodgrain card stock, and some dark pink card stock which was slightly bigger.  Before adhering them together, I used a corner chomper at the upper right of each card stock. I did the same thing to my card base.  Before adhering the flowers, I used the SSS Falling Snow Stencil and Worn Lipstick DI ink pads to add the pink dots in the background. The word Mom is made using the same technique as my first card. But because I ran out of dark pink card stock, I just used white card stock and colored the top die cut with a Copic marker. And of course, completed it with some Wink of Stella


Both cards have a same sentiment from the SSS Best Mom Ever Stamp set.
(I totally forgot to take a picture of the inside. Sorry.)

Overall, making CAS cards is really not easy.  I find it more challenging and somehow mind bending because I can't rely on my usual embellishments. And "balancing the card" is tough...well for me....
it is.  I'm just glad there are lots of talented CAS card makers and crafters who really inspire me.

Anywhooo, this is it for me today. I hope you like my cards today. I have a few more to make and I'll share them as I complete each card.

Thank your for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon!
