Wine Label Cards 3

This is my third post on the lovely French wine labels I won from Jacqueline. I've done altogether 6 cards using the labels, each of them done differently. These two are stamped with Paper Smooches Reflections, one card is for a male and the other a female. I'm adding these to Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge - Anything Goes and Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge. Thanks for dropping by!

Botanical Notes - Paper Piecing

Here is the long awaited study on paper piecing with the ever so lovely Penny Black stamp - Botanical Notes. This stamp looks nice on anything!! I have used different patterned papers for the following cards. I'm adding these to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - Anything Goes.
Edited to add:
I bought this stamp as I was inspired by Virginia's creative use of this stamp. I'm also adding this to her new Virginia View's Challenge #7 - Patterned Paper.

Runway Inspired #66

When I saw the Runway Inspired Challenge - Sportmax Resort 2015 this week, I couldn't wait to make a card! I have a few roses stamp and the one set that was jumping up and down was one of my old favourites - the SSS Best Mom Ever set. Here is my card based again on the current CAS(E) This Sketch #89. Since I've used a SSS stamp and the Wednesday Challenge is Anything Goes...

A Quickcard!

It's been a while since my last Hero Arts Flickr group Quickcard Scramble. This is held usually on the weekend and you have 90 minutes to make a card and upload to the group. As most of the hosts are in USA, sometimes the times does not suit Crafters on the other side of the globe. Cat Craig has made today's scramble at a later time so that the Aussies and New Zealanders can join in. So I was up at 6:30am ready for the challenge. The challenge today was to use this photo as inspiration. I've also use the current CAS(E) this Sketch challenge as well. I uploaded the photo at 7:30am! Thank you Cat for the fun challenge!

Some more French wines!

I was so lucky to be  the recipient of a stash of French wine labels from Jacqueline. She has made some beautiful cards with wine labels and the labels are so exquisite! I've already blogged one card I made and here are two more that I have made with these labels. They have all gone to my wine appreciating friends!!
Did anyone see that I got Top 3 in Addicted to CAS Gold challenge? This card was originally made for a publication call but was not picked up and then I sent it to Jacqueline to thank her for the labels!!

It's been quite a while since my last MFT challenge. I had an idea in my head as soon as I saw the MFTWSC187 sketch. I do not have the wider flag tail banners and the set I have is not wide enough to suit the sketch, so I have to hand cut the banner.  I'm also adding this to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - Anything Goes challenge.

I would like to share some photos I took last night on a 3 hour photography walk with a Photographer. It was the first time I've tried taking long exposure photos with my new camera and tripod. I loved the results!

Fanciful Feathers!

CAS = Clean and Simple (i.e. lots of white space)
I would like to share a couple cards I made a while ago but have not yet blogged. This is made with the WPlus9 Fanciful Feathers. The dies are inlaid so that they piece together like a jigsaw puzzle. The first card is for the Addicted to CAS - Gold challenge. The second card is made with washi tapes I recently purchased in Typo in Kuala Lumpur, using the same technique. I'm also adding these cards to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - Anything Goes Challenge.
Edited to add...
This card won Top 3 in Addicted to CAS!! Thanks!!

Another Panda card

I'm in love with these cute Mama Elephant Pandas! Here is another cute card for a little girl's birthday using the current CAS(e) this sketch and Tag You're It challenge #3. I'm also adding this to Mama Elephant and ME's Water Colouring and Birthday challenge and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge. It's a very cold weekend in Melbourne, nice to be indoors and crafting! Thanks for dropping by!
