Craft with me: It’s a good day to be happy

So I’ve been missing for the past week.
Last week was a week of mourning for Singapore – we lost Mr Lee Kuan Yew.
He was a great man, and though some may criticise his methods, I think he did what he needed to do to let Singapore survive.

Anyway, here’s a long overdue craft with me post, but I really hope you enjoy it!
It’s a special post this time, featuring 2 cards with two set of stamps.
I meant for these cards to be birthday cards, but I’m sure they’ll look great just as an encouragement card too.

Here are the two stamp sets I used from Mama Elephant.
These two sets are called carnival cupcakes and up and away.
I also used a mini hero arts ink pad called cup o’ joe and a acrylic block.

For the first time, I tried using masking techniques.
To do this, I first stamped the images that’s going to be appearing on the front of the card.
By this, I mean the image that is on the foreground with nothing blocking it.
Then, using a post it note, I stamped the same image, cut it out and masked it before stamping images that goes behind it.

For the first card, the cupcake was the top most image.
The second card was the same as well.

Finally, I coloured in the images using normal colour pencils.
It takes some time, but I think the result’s worth it.

Exams are approaching soon, and I have to go into mugging mode.
Hopefully I’ll be able to get a post up in time next week.
Till the next post, take care!
