Paper Crafts magazine Presents: Bonus Sketch Blog Hop

I am so glad and honoured to be part of the fun Paper Crafts blog hop in celebrating this special issue of Cards Ideas for Paper Crafters. Currently, Paper Crafts magazine online editor, P. Kelly Smith are hosting a "Bonus Sketch Blog Hop"over Paper Crafts Connection.

10 of us were asked to design a card using one of the 12 bonus sketches which can be found here. I choose Lucy Abrams sketch to make the card:

My card base on her sketch:
How fun is this sketch as I ended up came out with this "towel" ideas for couples who are celebrating their anniversary. The sentiment that I've used from Lawn Fawn gave a perfect touch on this card!

For me, to follow the sketch closely was one of my greatest challenge in this call as I knew I just couldn't follow. Although the sketch can be interpret in different ways eg. flip them, rotate them, invert them or use them as seen but still the end results always not pointing towards the sketch or sometimes just couldn't recognise the card was base on the sketch. However, it was fun to create a card base on the sketch which actually push me to step out of my comfort zone.

Please do continuing visit bellow designer's blog hop for more inspiration!

Jay Gee's Nook: Design Team

Today, I have some good news to share with all of you :) I was so happy and felt unworthy when the founder of Jay Gee's Nook blog Judith, invited me to join her design team. Indeed, it was my first DT ever I've joined and I felt honored! Every Sunday I will be show casing my card by using her store stamps, if you wonder where to get the stamp that I've used in my card, simply visit her online craft store here.

In my today's card, I've used the stamp set called (For The Love Of Dots) from Practicing Creativity Designs. I adore this stamp set because of the simplicity lines and the dynamic dots. Just thought I will give you some of the inspiration on "Christmas Ornaments" that you can create by yourself.

Jay Gee's Nook Challenge #10

Another fun challenge by Jay Gee"s Nook #10 over her blog. Don't you think the inspired photo look amazing? I really like how Joy selection with these inspiring images from Pinterest. Honestly, I hardly try these purple theme kind of color combination on my card. Thought it was challenging, but I think it is worth trying. I have also used this lovely texture paper from (Couture) s.e.i which gives a little bit of classy feel on the card.
