365 Cards: Day 25 - Super Sketchy Sunday (Sketch by Pam Maas)

We are having a very special week at the 365 Cards.  Thanks to SRM Stickers for their sponsorship.  And boy, did we love what they sent us to play with.  Lots of nice stickers and 2 plastic tubes! :)

And with inspiration from Pam's wonderful sketch this Sunday,

THESE are what I came up with.  I rotated the sketch one turn to the left.

Can you guess which ones are the stickers? ;)

And here are what I did with the tubes.  Sorry about the bad photos. I took this at nighttime with an iPhone.  I filled them with roasted almonds.  Tied some colourful twine around it and used the pretty stickers on them, too.

Hubby and I are going on a weekend trip to a beach resort in Bintan, Indonesia.  And I am bringing these along so we something to munch on during of ferry ride.

That's it for me this week.  Do pop over to the other Sunday girls' blogs for more inspiration. 

Then it's your turn to link up your creations to the challenge blog.

Challenge Entry: Baby Shower Invitations

I am still very excited about my new TGF stamps. And so, here are some more cards from me using the Mom & Dad set.

Well, there's actually a back story to why I purchased this specific stamp set.  I've got a few dear friends who are on the family way, and I really think they'd appreciate a little help in preparing for a baby shower.  So here's me, putting my hand up! ;)

Here is a Baby Shower Invitation with the Mommy paper doll.

And the matching Baby Shower Invitation with the Daddy paper doll. Daddies need a baby shower, too! ;)

The pretty DPs are from a new Heidi Grace 12x12 paper pack.  The ribbons are from American Crafts.  I coloured the images with my Copics. Shapes cut with the Cricut Expression.

Now a close up on the paper dolls. :)

I hope my projects inspired you today. :)

Challenge Entry: Hello Card with Simpy Anya

I am so excited to find my The Greeting Farm rubber stamps order in the mailbox this week.  I ordered a few pieces after working with one of their digis for a DT card I made for the 2 Sisters Challenge Blog.

One of my purchases included TGF's new stamp release - Simpy Anya.

And here's what I made using this adorable little rubber stamp and some leftover bits of kraft cardstock and Bazzill Basic DPs.  The ribbon is American Crafts. The sentiment stamp is Hero Arts.  The bling is from a local DIY store here in Singapore. I used Copics to colour Anya. :)

365 Cards: Day 11 - Super Sketchy Sunday (Sketch by Pam Maas)

How's everybody's weekend coming along?  It's a Sunday, and for 365 Cards Challenge fans, it is time for a Super Sketchy Sunday challenge!

This week's sketch is another fun one from Pam, and you are invited to create with it!

And here is my "berry" sweet interpretation of it.

I used Kraft cardstock as card base.  The DP is from DigiDoodleBug. Pink cardstock from AC. The sentiment is from PTI stamped in using Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I cut the shape with my Cricut Expression.  The scalloped circle is punched out using an MS puncher. The buttons and trim are from a local craft store here in Singapore.

I hope you have been inspired. Check out the rest of the cards by the Super Sketchy Sunday ladies.
