Mama Elephant Photo Inspiration Challenge

Here is Mama Elephant's January photo inspiration challenge:

This photo gives me the feminine feeling with pink, silver, and pearl colors. So, here is the card I made:

I use the doily stamp from Filigree set and white embossed on the watercolor paper. Then, I applied Distress ink pads with Perfect Pearls mist to make the embossing resist effect. Stamp "miss you" on the top right corner and cut out the background into an irregular shape. Mount it on the pearl color cardstock, then attach foam dots on the back to mount on the silver cardstock. Finish the card by attaching the pearl stickers on the silver cardstock. Here is a closer look of the detail:

And here is another look from the side:

Cardstocks: watercolor paper (Ranger), pearl & silver cardstocks (PTI)
Stamps: Mama Elephant
Ink Pads: Versamark, Distress ink pads, Archival ink pad
Others: Perfect Pearls, white embossing powder, foam dots, pearl stickers

Here is the CAS-ual Fridays CFC126 Color Blocks challenge.

I decided to use stencil to create the color blocks on kraft cardstock with white ink pad, then colored with color pencils. Below is the finished card:

I used JudiKins stencil on white cardstock and brush with white ink (see below):

Then, I colored with different colors of prismacolor colored pencils on the petals. White embossed the word "love" on the upper left corner and attach the kraft cardstock onto the white card. Quick, clean, and simple. Below is another look of the card:

Chinese Knot Crystal Pendant

I made this crystal pendant with 8mm, 6mm, and 4mm Swarovski crystal bicones and 8/0 and 11/0 seed beads. It's pretty easy to make this pendant. Once I finished this pendant, I felt it looks like a kind of Chinese know. So, I found this silver tassel and it's a perfect match to let this pendant look like a Chinese knot. Here is the pendant:

I think it looks better on a long necklace, so I put this pendant on the 24 inches silver necklace. Here is the look:

And below is a closer look at the Chinese knot pendant:

Love Struck - Paper Smooches Jan 5-11 Anything Goes challenge

Here is this week's Paper Smooches Anything Goes challenge:

I decided to use this Love Stuck set to make a cute love/valentine card for this challenge. Below is the card I made:

I used the coordinate die to cut out the cupid and colored with Copic markers. The background cloud is the stencil from JudiKins and I applied the Distress ink pad on the stencil. Then I cut out part of the clouds and attach foam dots to make a dimensional effect for the card background. The love target was stamped in red and cut out, I applied the Wink of Stella glitter pen to make it shiny. Finish the card by attach the cupid, love target, and stamp the "love stuck" text on the clouds.

Stamps: Paper Smooches
Ink Pads: Memento, Stampin' Up, Distress Ink
Die: Paper Smooches
