Tea Birthday card for Nicole



Recently, my friend, Nicole just celebrated her birthday. Here is the card that I had made for her. Nicole love TEA! How do I know? Her blog had say it all! :) Not only she love tea, she also love  jewelry! Especially the one that are homemade.



So I decided to make her a card using the Tea shoppe stamp set. Love the colors combo of the pool party, crumb cake, and very vanilla. Its so subtle, soft, and calm. I don't have the scallop envelope to used for this card.  Its been on my wish list for a long time, but I MUST get it soon. So instead, I improvised using the mini envelope to put the tea bag inside. It still work and looks great. I just trim off the bottom of the mini envelope and it fit the tea bag right in perfectly. I also used the cute petite curly label punch. It has been sitting in my craft desk for a while. I finally put it to used and attached on the tea bag. Its say, "You suit me to a tea", from the Tea Shoppe set. As I mention, Nicole love jewelry. I added in the cute little tea cup trinket to the pool party seam ribbon. So cute! So glad that Stampin Up has a tea time trinkets charm. It matches with the card. 

If you get the chance, please hop over to her blog who she also co blogger with her sister, teehee4two.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day! :)

Hugs,
Chan

Blooming Just For You...


I hope you are not bored of seeing me using the little jar, again...over and over...As you can tell....ITS MY FAVORITE!!! Lol... I absolutely love this set!!! 
Anyhoo, here is another card that I would like to share with you, using the cute little jar. I really LOVE how this cad turned out...Such a crisp clean and simple card. Also "pretty" too. :)


The trick of making the heart shape. I punch out the full heart and placed it on the card stock as my guideline. As you can see, the heart still not as perfect. Then I applied the itty bitty flowers onto the heart.  I also applied the little pearls all over the flowers. Believed me, when I had finished with the card, my fingers was so sticky from using the tombo glue and trying to get all those flowers as closed as together. I try not to make a mess or getting all the glue all over the place. But I still did.  LOL! But at the end, it turned out such a lovely card.

I hope you enjoy this post...Thanks for stopping by! ^_^

Xoxo, 
Chan

I used one of the laser-cut heart and some left over scrap of DSP from More Amore, added on to very vanilla card stock, stamp those adorable bubble hearts from, Oh Whale set, and then simply tied a nice pool party seam binding ribbon. Easy peasy!


    Here is a little up closed of how the heart box looked like. I used some red tissue paper to die cut the fancy flowers. Its so soft and fluffy. I really love how it turned out. So fun and also so girly! Inside the box are filled with heart chocolate candies and sweets. Yum!

    This gift is giving to our "Sweet Friend", for Al and his wife Lou this weekend....
    (An early Valentine gift since they live far from us....) ;)

    Hello Kitty Baby Shower Invites


    I know what you are thinking and nope, I'm not pregnant...not yet...maybe... or maybe not. lol... Anyhow, One of my friend, Sam  had requested for me to make her a Hello Kitty baby shower invites. Sam and her hubby are expecting another child and its another girl they are having. This will be their third girls and their fourth child. :) I'm so excited for them!


    Here are the Hello Kitty baby shower invites. She a huge fan of Hello Kitty and so am I. Her invitations is one of those pocket cards. Such a fun one to make as well and a last minted thing. She email me on Facebook the other days and ask if there a possible way I can make her 20 invites of Hello Kitty for her shower before January 15. So I quickly wrapped it up and show her some few samples, but she fell in love with the pocket cards. I also did a Mickey and Minnie pocket card invite for a friend a while ago. Click her to see the Mickey and Minnie invites.


    Here is an up closed of the invite. Its turned out so cute! I can see using this for a birthday invitation too. ;) All supplies were used from Stampin Up, except for the Hello Kitty image and the polka dot design paper. I didn't have any DSP that goes with a baby shower theme and didn't have time to order them. So I dropped by at my local craft store and found those pretty pink polka dot design papers. I knew right there, the papers is  perfect for the Hello Kitty invites. Her baby shower color them are black, pink, and white! It was a nice colors combo too!

    I gave her those invitations yesterday and she totally love it!
