FWF - He's a Wordy Buck Birthday Card

Hi every body, it's Friday Friends with Flair day. 
Today, i'm very happy to share with your my new stamp set from Unity. I just receive my happy mail last two days, and i love this stamp set so much!

This stamp set is He's wordy buck set. You can see that it's so pretty by just stamp on a color paper.

The background is colored by 3 distress colors: Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint and Peacock Feathers. 
After applying all the colors, i just spray some waters on it to make it look like water color finish.
Then i distress the border and apply some Walnut Stain Distress Color at the border.

Here is the closer look.

I used the "happy birthday" sentiment that comes with the set, and i apply the silver emboss powder to make it special!
Here is a zoom up for the silver emboss effect.

That's all for today post, thanks for reading. Happy weekend!

Cards for Sympathy/ farewell/ Birthday & New Born

I love doing cards for different occasions, no matter it's happy or sad, making cards with love always make me feel great.

Although it feel great, but it's always a hard time for me to do sympathy card when someone leaving. Here, I've create a sympathy card for my friend, that her mom just passed away so suddenly in the house without anyone notice.

To ensure that the card is not so fancy, i choose to used the earth tone colour. The flower stamp that i used is a free gift from a magazine, and the sentiment that i used is from Unity Stamp Lasting thoughts.

The second card is made for my colleague, who is going to migrate to New Zealand soon.
This cute little farewell card is special made for her in pink color as she loves Pink color a lot.
The image is a 3D decoupage kit from a magazine, and i add in some stickers and stone as decoration.

The third card is special made for my friend birthday, the stamp i used is from Unity Stamp Sabrina Fashionista, she is just gorgeous and pretty, i color the image with my Fine Color marker.

The fourth card I made is a special order from my friend. She would like to give a card for her friend's wedding. 
This is my first attempt to add in paper quilling on card. To make the paper quilling stand out, my card designed focus on Black and White theme, and i'm playing with emboss effect and decorate with the black and white polka dot ribbon.
The sentiment that i used is from Unity Stamp too.

The fifth card i made is ordered by my friend too.
It's a farewell card for her lady boss who will leave her work place soon. In order not to put the "farewell" sentiment only, i choose to put the sentiment as " You will be Missed". This is my first try using Heidi Swapp Color Shine Spray, and the result is very nice. The stamp that i used is from Unity Stamp Be Joyful.

The sixth card is made for my friend birthday too, wish her have a charm life ahead. :)

The stamp that i used is from Unity Stamp Faceless beauty, it just so beautiful.

The next two card is order to make card for my friend. 
She need 2 new born baby cards and i make these 2 cards in blue for boy and pink for girl. 
Thanks to Spotlight that just open in Malaysia, i manage to get some nice color papers and embellishment suitable for baby theme decoration!

The stamp that i used for below card is from Unity Stamp Hello little one Kit, it's so cute!

That's all for today's post. 
Thanks for reading, have a nice day!

Scrappy Lantern for the very first time

Hi everybody, is me Rebecca again. How is your weekend doing? 
Well, for me, I've try with something new and it's absolutely out from norm, that it's my very first scrappy lantern.

In my country, we don't celebrate Halloween, but we do celebrate a festival call Mid Autumn Festival, and lantern is one of the must have item for Mid Autumn Festival.

This lantern is made by disposable chopstick (you may replace it with any wood stick), manila card, border puncher and some hot glue and thread. 
As the lantern have 4 side, i decorated each side with different design.

The first page i'm using House a home kit from Unity Stamp. As the current popular trend is on water color, I colored the background using distress marker with water.

For second page, i'm using the Distress paint from Tim Holtz, and the flower stamps is from Better together kom 7/11 from Unity Stamp. 

For third page, i'm using Heidi Swapp color shine spray paint. The stencil is from Kaiser Craft and the sentiment is from Perfect in every way kom 6/09 from Unity Stamp.

For the fourth page, i choose to used pastel to color the background, then i stamp up the image and sentiment from Insightful meadows kit. I just love this kit so much as it's so pretty that you can use for any occasion!

This is how the lantern look like when i light up with tea candle.

This is another side of the lantern.

This is inside of the lantern, so simple yet so useful!

 From the picture above, you will notice that the lantern is not bright because the manila card is thick, therefore i have create another lantern using tracing paper!

 For second lantern, i decided to do another design and this design is obviously different from the first lantern. 
I used tracing papers, white card stock, border punchers, and a lot of Unity Stamp to create the lantern.

This is so bright after i light up with candle and i'm very satisfy with the lantern!

This is my favorite page as the image is so beautiful.

Taking picture from another side.

This is the first page, i'm using same Insightful meadows kit from Unity.

For second page, I'm using the sentiment Everything in love and Bitty flower background Itty Bitty stamp from Unity.

For third page, i'm using Donna-poppies by Donna Downey kit, and the sentiment is from all about hope kit and Faith begins from Unity Itty Bitty. 

As for the last page, i'm using Phyllis Harris let-love-fly kit.

Although both lantern is rather simple, but this is my first scrappy lantern and i hope that you will like it too.
Thanks for reading my long post, do leave a comment to me if you like it too!. :)

Last, i tie up the ribbon, and the tag is ready to give! 

Here is another closer look for the tag.
Hope you enjoy the little tag that I've make.
