Hi all. Vera here. It’s still January, so I can still wish you all a very happy New Year. I was lucky to start this new year with my family back in Singapore where we gather to visit my niece who we all haven’t seen for a while due to the pandemic. It was such precious moments for me to able to hug and hangout with my family. Hoping that we can do this more often for sure.
Card making wise, this is my first card of the year!! I decided to play with some older sets that I just absolutely love. Here, I am using Climbing Iris.
I stamped and heat embossed the image on a piece of watercolor cardstock. Then colored the image with watercolor and let dry. Once dry, I die cut the image with Climbing Iris Coordinating Dies. Put aside.
For the background panel, I used Minor Stripes Cling Background stamp. I stamped the background stamp randomly with white ink pad. I want to have the rustic look, so on purpose I tap the ink pad lightly, so when I press the cardstock to it, it has softer result, not so solid. Trim the panel and adhere the flower with foam adhesive. For the sentiment, I used sentiment from Heartfelt Blossoms and finish the card by adding Crystal Clear Rainbow Rhinestones.
I feel just slightly rusty as I didn’t craft for a whole month. But, I guess it’s like riding a bike, you never really forget it. It feels great to craft again. Well peeps, that’s all from me today. I wish you all the best for 2023. May this year brings us all good health, blessings and many joyful moments. Cheers to you all.
