For less is More

Hello sweet bloggers,

As some of you may know, I run an initiative on meditation, wellness and all things positive. This month we celebrated three happy years and now the focus is to share this further. 
Coming back to my card, I have used used florist paper to die cut the flower. The inner flower was made many years ago and a tiny gem was put in the centre to complete it. I embossed two nesties together and stuck the flower on it.

I will enter this card in Less is More where the theme is embossing.


Beside Less is More, I will also enter this card in:

Fluorescent feather

Hello dear bloggers,

Here is a card that I made for an order of 12 cards. The funds will go to support a shelter for abused women.
Yaay! I am so happy. I created the background with  fluorescent pink from Maala and the red was a Sakura acrylic tube. I did a smoosh with them and it was great fun. The sentiment was die cut from the same paper and I used a brick embossing folder. The embossed paper has been propped up on foam dots for added dimension.





Down below are rest of the cards in almost similar design.



I will enter the cards in the following challenges:

Colourful card

Hello dear bloggers,

I have been busy with an order for 12 cards from a kind lady in our complex. Hence I could not be too active on the blog. I will surely show off the cards in my following posts. I am raising funds for a shelter for abused women in Singapore as I may have shared earlier.

Here is a card that Aleeza designed and stamped. The colourful paper is actually soft tissue paper that we coloured many years during an experiment with milk, vegetable colour and liquid detergent. I quite like how it turned out and tried to get creative with the photo as well though I think the vases may be bigger than the focal point. Lol. 





Happy card making,

Monica

White on white for CAS on Sunday

Dear bloggers,

Here is a card I have made for the challenge at CAS on Sundays which is white on white. I do like white on white challenges - easy and so elegant as well. The Kaiser craft fern die cut is my new buy from Spotlight while the frame has been die cut using two square frames. The sentiment is a die cut as well.

For CAS(E) this Sketch

Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is my card to show you today which I made a few months ago. The bee has been hand drawn on a scrap piece of paper and the inspiration was a video on Youtube. Aleeza made her bee and I made mine and we had loads of fun colouring it with colour pencils. The outlines were done with a black Sharpie. I quite like the way mine turned out. The flourishes have been made from die cuts and I had to add them to follow the sketch.

Appreciate the little things

Hello dear bloggers,

Here is my card to show you which I made a few weeks ago with dies. The flowers are handmade by yours truly and coloured with distress inks. The leaves have been coloured with distressed ink too and the swirls were die cut out of paper smooshed with food colours. 

The sentiment is a wooden rubber stamp which I love. It is a reminder for me to remember to be grateful for all the mercies I am blessed with instead of looking at the challenges. Blessings and not lessings!
