Climber Flowers Mini Slim Line Card

 Hello there,

I've just finished taking Altenew Academy All About Layering 6 - Dies Edition online class, and finally got a homework done.  Yes I am rather slow creating for this class, but I don't mind I am enjoying the process very much.

I CASE'd Lydia Evans, the class intstructor's inspiration card pretty much to the T, except I made a mini slim line version.

The flowers are leaves are die cut from watercolored panel and glue together.  I really like how this turned out even though I didn't use extra die cut on the back of the vellum.


Thanks for visiting me today.  Have a good one.

A window to December 25th on Die Cut Divas

Happy Easter Monday!

While Spring is on my mind, but I am really thinking ahead to Christmas!  LOL

Today's project I created using some of the dies from Poppystamps' Fern and Daisy Pop Up Easel die set.  With my creative license I preserved some spring flowers for a winter wreath.  And I am sharing it on Die Cut Divas.


I created a popup shadow box card (with window), inspired by Jennifer McGuire's video.

I used some doubled pattern paper for the card base, for the card front I 'winterized' it by adding white heat embossing in a distress fashion.  Then die cut circular window on front panel, arrange and adhered the watercolored flowers and leaves (with extra die cut leaves) around the window.  On the inside panel I simply glued the die cuts.

Poppystamps is our sponsor on Die Cut Divas this month, and our challenge theme is Aperture (Window).  

Come join in the fun and link up at Die Cut Divas.  Challenge winner will receive $20 gift card to Poppystamps.

Snow Globe Window on Die Cut Divas

Happy April 1st!!

No, no joke here.  I am very serious about the new challenge on Die Cut Divas Challenge Blog.  This month's sponsor is Poppystamps.  You know it, they have really beautiful products especially cutting dies.  Winner would receive $20 gift card to their store.

Now our challenge theme for April is: Aperture (window).  And here's my project.

It features Poppystamps' Snowglobe Kit on the front.  The upperpart of the snow globe is open, a window to the inside.

The deer is also from Poppystamps named Peaceful Deer, I adhered Marigold Micro Fine Glitter to it. Although the die I used has been discontinued, there are other cute one such as: Tender DeerWhittle Deer,  and Playful Deer Collage.

I hope I've inspired you to join the challenge.   Hop over to Die Cut Divas to see more inspirations created by the DT and get full challenge details.

Altenew Academy Creative Coloring with Erum lesson 6 homework


I must say I am sad the class, Altenew Academy Creative Coloring with Erum has come to an end.  Last class today, and I am shareing the last homework.  One layer card (ok, except the raised sentiment).

It's a dark and rainy day here, so photo taken under artificial light.  Do you find the placement of the sentiment odd?  Well, I had a little booboo underneath there sooooo.....
