Oops ~ Clean or Dirty?

Happy Mother's Day Everyone!

I have a new creation to share with you on this special day.
It is a DT project for The Ribbon Girl Blog "Use Any Image" challenge.
Our theme this month is "Shaped card or Anything goes".

A coworker had asked if I could make a sign for her dishwasher.
Her family members are often confused whether the dishes in the
dishwasher are clean or dirty. So, I made a magnet for her.

I think this makes a great gift idea for moms too.


I have colored this Oops Tilda with Distress Ink pads.


The blackboard is a large piece of magnet which adheres to the
dishwasher's metal door. The double-sided sign is also magnetic and
sticks to the blackboard. The sign says Clean on one side and Dirty on the other.
I brushed Glue and Seal to all surfaces to make it more water-proof.

Thanks so much for your visit.
I wish you all a very lovely day.

Cupcake Oven Box ~ Happy Mother's Day at Scor-Pal

Morning Everyone!

It's May 1st; a brand new start for More Than One Score Challenge at Scor-Pal.
The challenge theme for May is ~ Mother's Day.

For my DT project, I made a cupcake oven box.
I was inspired by a few cute examples of this oven box at Pinterest.
I would love to design a different configuration so the box can be
folded/stored flat. Will put this thought in my to-do list :^).


Inside the oven, there is a pull-out box/tray sized for a cupcake.



I had to buy a couple of gourmet Cupcakes for the picture shoot, lol.
Not that I don't like to bake but I really want to try these cupcakes.
Oh yum, they were truly to die for!!!

Morning Everyone!

 When I first saw this image, I was totally amazed how
it resembles one of my coworker's teenage daughter
whose name is Hannah and who also has two cats.
I was inspired to make a door/wall hanging for her.

Thank You Tilda Wall Hanging ~ Tilda with Fantasy Flowers

Good Morning Everyone!

How quickly has the time passed; it is the end of March already!
I have had a busy month in my personal life and also enjoyed our abnormally
mild weather here in Vancouver. Cherry blossoms are in full display
and the temperature reached 18C the other day. So I won't
complain about a few spring showers here and there :^)

On to my regular last Sunday of the month post, it is the
Magnolia Only Challenge at The Ribbon Girl Inspirational Blog.
The theme this week is ~ Not A Square.

For my DT creation, I made a heart-shaped wall hanging in spring colors
using Magnolia stamp image Tilda With Fantasy Flowers.


I have this stamp in my stash for a while, it is the first time to ink her up!
The image was colored with Distress Ink pads as usual.
I started coloring with Distress Inks a couple of years ago and have enjoyed
the beautiful soft tone immensely. I use my Copics and Prisma pencils
from time to time, but I always go back to watercoloring.


The heart-shaped base measures approximately 5"(W) x 8"(H).
I top stitched the DP and embossed the butterfly with shabby white frantage.
