Papertrey Ink October Blog Hop and CAS-ual Friday #118

Good morning everyone!

Today I'm sharing a gift box and tags i made for CAS-ual Friday #118 and Papertrey Ink October Blog Hop

The box is made using Fold-n-Go template.  I stamped the buildings from City Scene set all round the box.  I had so much fun stamping these 2-step building images.  You can have a rainbow row of buildings if you like :).  
For the tags, i decide to go with shaker style, added some white sequins and coarse glitters in between. 
I'm thinking of wrapping some fresh baked cookies in the cellophane bag then put them in these lovely city-scape boxes.
Here are all the tags.  I stamped the sentiment on the back of each tag.  The sentiment is from Mama Elephant's Cozy Christmas set

Here are couple more pictures of the box.  

 Thanks for visiting and as always, your comments are greatly appreciated.  Have a wonderful day!!

CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #50 and CASology: Country

Hello again,

I'm sharing a simple card i made for CAS(E) this Sketch #50 and CASology #67: Country.  This lovely sketch is by Chrissy Larson.  My interpretation of country is that this wreath is made with rustic pine branches and holly leaves, can be found in the country, rural areas...

I stamped the single pine branch from Peaceful Pinecones set around in a circle using HA Soft Stone ink.  I then added the smaller holly leaves from this set.  The sentiment is from PTI's new release 'Till The Season Sentiments set.  Few red gemstones completed the look.  Thanks for visiting!

Tuesday Trigger: Apache Tears in the Key of Autumn

I love the colorful inspirational picture of this week's Tuesday Trigger, so i'm playing along.

I used PTI's Autumn Pattern Pieces stamp set, and Memento's Rose Bud, Tangelo, London Fog, Dandelion, Rhubarb Stalk and Brilliance Sky Blue.  The alphabet dies are by Avery Elle, using the technique seen here by JJBolton.  I stacked the alphabets in 4 layers, so they look like Thickers.  

Thank you for visiting, and as always, your comments are greatly appreciated.  Have a wonderful afternoon!!

Runway Inspired Christmas Card

Today i'm sharing a card i made for Runway Inspired #46Simon Says... ChristmasAddictied to Stamps and More #67, MarkerPOP #32 Challenges.

I played around with several combos of copic colors before choosing R20, R22, and R24.  The poinsettia and sentiment stamps are from PTI's Year Of Flowers: Poinsettias set.  The outlined flowers on my card are inspired by the pattern on the skirt, and the red poinsettia... well obviously from the red jacket.  I added the pink button but it blended it in a bit too well.  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful evening!

Ghost Halloween Card... Mass Produced

Halloween is approaching quickly.  I need total of 28 Halloween cards for the kids and teachers in my sons' classes.  I made 18 of these last night, using CAS(E) this Sketch #49... 10 more to go.  I'm loving this blog lately... i don't have to spend much time contemplating on the sketches anymore :).  The ladies on CAS(E) this Sketch always come up with great sketches...

Here's my card:

I die cut bunches of ghosts and tag, stamped the tags and sentiment... then let the assembly began :).  Took me total of 3 hours for 18 cards.  I added sequins for this challenge, but the cards to be handed out to the kids won't have any sequins.  

I'm also submitting this card to Simon Says Use a Rubber or Clear Stamp Challenge 
Thanks for visiting!

It seems to me that there're more birthdays in October than any other months :)...  My sons, both have friends' birthday in October.  My older son's birthday is also in October.  Lately, our weekends have been involving  mostly with birthday parties.  I made this card for another little girl's birthday.  I used CAS(E) this Sketch #49, the colors are from colourQ challenge #210.  It also fits Simon Says... Use a Rubber or a Clear Stamp Challenge and MarkerPOP Blog Challenge.

Here's my card:

The balloon is colored with various Copic markers.  The balloon stamp is from PTI's set Up Up & Away.  The sentiment is from Simon Says Happy set

A Little Girl's Birthday Card and Simon Says Challenge

I'm sharing a card i made for my son's classmate.  She's turning 4 and having a Pancake-Pajama birthday party tomorrow morning.  I also submit this card to Simon Says... We're Going Dotty Challenge.  I made a boo-boo stamping this card, but it's so late here, so i'm sorta lazy fixing it :)

Good night everyone!!

Mr. Bones Card

Hello and Happy Friday everyone!

I have a card to share today.  I'm inspired by the images on Curtain Call blog and the CAS(E) this sketch #48.

Here's my card:

I made this card using PTI's Mr. Bones set.  Isn't he so cute?  The sentiment is also from the set, but i stamped one word at a time and positioned them on the same line.  I went to Joann's to find Martha Stewart anywhere square punch, but no luck.  I had to hand cut those windows... was such a pain in the behind :).  

Thanks for stopping by and your comments are greatly appreciated.  Have a wonderful weekend!!
