{#13} My 1st "Thank You" Easel Card

Hi everyone! I need a Thank You card for my DH teacher at school and I planning to make her an easel card! I hope she'll like the card and decided to put it on her table!LOL!

I saw the easel card tutorial over at SCS and it's very easy to follow, so here's my very first easel card...

For this card I cut the apple&book at 3" from Hello Kitty Greeting cartridge, the sentiment "Thank You" from Sweethearts cartridge I cut them at "1.5", "my teacher" from Hello Kitty Greeting I cut them at 1.1" and the scalloped circle from a Child's Year actually it's not a circle but I change it into a circle using my gypsy and I cut it at 4.5"x4.5" then I added some star dust stickles for the sentiment and glam rocks from i-rocks. The final card size is 4.5"x5.5". Hope you all like my card!

Have a wonderful scrappy day!!

Card recipe : 
- Patterned paper from my stash (I forgot where I got it from), 
- The flower pp is from Me & My Big Idea.
- Brown and Pink cardstock from Recollections.
- Hello Kitty Greeting, Sweethearts, and A Child's year cartridge.
- Eyelets from Recollections.
- Stickles : Star Dust
- Glam rocks color fusion from i-rocks by Imaginisce.

{#12} The Paper Variety Challenge #21 : Card Sketch!

Hi, it's my week again at The Paper Variety blog and this week challenge is Card Sketch! Abby from The Paper Variety has a lovely sketch for you to work on, here is the sketch...

and here is my card using the sketch....

I know Valentine's day has passed but it doesn't mean you can't make something with love theme right? :D

And finally I broke my tattered angels mist for this card, I'm still not sure how to use it because you can see there's some spot caused by the mist! If any of you know how to use mist perfectly please let me know! :)

I was inspired by Yarn flower video tutorial by Suzanne at TPV blog and I decided to make the heart shape from jewelery cord, using the same technique, first I punch out a heart shape and then I covered the paper with glue and start assembling the cord from the inside. I cut the Elephant from Paisley cartridge(sorry I forgot the size!) and I printed out the sentiment. 

For any of you who decided to have fun with us over the TPV blog, this week prize is Amazing! It's a Citrus Tree Studio Kit

Isn't they looks pretty? I love the patterned they have! and don't forget to link up your project at TPV blog before next Tuesday noon! I can't wait to see what you gonna come up with! Oh and be sure to check out another DT cards they all looks fabulous!!

Have a wonderful scrappy day!!

Card recipe :
- Echo Park Paper "Little Girl" line.
- Bazzill cardstock.
- Paisley cartridge for the Elephant and envelope.
- Ribbon from my stash.
- Tattered angels glimmer mist.
- Pink jewelery cord from my stash.
- Martha Stewart edge punch.
- Black pen.
