Hello Forever Friends

Hi everyone, its Thursday afternoon at about 1 plus over here in Singapore.Today's card is using decoupage technique to create a card for Forever Friends DT contest.I love F.F bears they were my fave , during my teens..was so happy to find this blog ,Thanks Gemma .I found it on your blog.
I don't really have any FF stamps.Were surprise and happy to know they have been made into stamps.Will try to get my hands on some.....
Okay so ,back to my card, I don't have stamps but I have a calender which I bought long time ago..way back in 1997..can you believed it I still have it!So I cut out the picture and created this card.Not sure if I can use them for this challenge , but its a image of FF bear, so I think its ok.
 I am recycling...

It's he cute! Waving at you to say Hello!

For this card I used plain cardstock.Rub/ sponge on  Distress ink- tea dye and stamp woodgrain print on the cover of the card.To create the look of a wooden house.Cut out two strips of paper -one orange and one pink, glue it on the left side .Cut out the window without bear, add stickles to the window frame.Cut out the lower portion with the flowers and glue it to the card.Add pop dots to the window and glue it on the woodgrain stamped image.Slightly over the portion with the flowers.Then add ribbon , flowers and buttons.

As for the inside of the card ,I cut and layered 2 squares, stamped on text.  Cut out a  strip of paper glue it slightly on part of the ribbon to secure it. Then glue on a layered piece of rectangle paper with flower pattern stamped on.Have also stamped on woograin image and randomly stamped on the flowers for the background.
Would love to send this in Forever Friends Challenge blog  - Monthly Challenge #3 No design papers

Spring is in the air,bunny

My next card is also using a bunny stamp since its Spring... and will be April soon. For this 2nd card the theme is Recycling.So I am using left over scraps , negative of die cuts,buttons from old shirt .....this was my rough sketch.... I just place them together to have a idea of how my card will look like..

The red flower with polka dots are punch out from magazine, the orange semi-circle is from a tissue box,buttons are from an old shirt.The paper used are all from my box of scrap DP.Notice I have change the butterfly to a smaller die-cut butterfly.Have used a border punch to punch the green strip of paper.Added a pink gem to the dot of all the  'i's. The words Spring is in the air was from a strip of leftover paper, thought it matches this picture.

Here is the inside of this card, I have also added those polka-dotted flowers and used a negative of a die cut it's polka dotted too..I think the positive is on my precious moment card.Which I made last month.

Hi everyone,wow time really flies today is my last day as March Guest Designer for Stamptacular Sunday Challenge.Pop on over here to check -out the challenge.Thanks for having me at SSC!
For this weeks challenge you will create a BIRTHDAY card or project FOR ADULTS ONLY! …

I decided to create a french inspired card with faux stitching.Love the black and white with a touch of green,its not a kiddy colour so I think it would be a lovely card for an adult.The best wishes was a clear stamp set which I have brought a long time ago.Wow..19 mar 2007that was written on the back.The bird is a cling set I bought last year.The image of the bird is simple yet elegant , works well as a ( Bird-day card).....When you open the card to look inside

I have actually folded the printed design in ,so that when you open the card you will have a pleasant surprise.(plus I feel that this print for the cover will look very busy)
I just realized that I started my GD card with a duck and ended with a bird.

Thanks for Peeping ,would love to read your comments.Till my next card,bye.....
