Splash Thanks

Splash Thanks
Made this card for one of my returning Copic markers buyers.

For this card, I play with Less is More - Week 215 - One Layer Week - Include An Animal only as one layer card is really my biggest challenge. I do not know why I always have issue making one layer card. Thus, this time would be a great challenge for me to tackle and I am glad that I manage to make this card! :P

Close-up: The hippopotamus
It is a clean and simple (CAS) card. First, I draw a frame on a white card base using pencil. Then, the hippopotamus image is stamped onto the card base with its legs a bit off the frame line. The hippopotamus is then colored using Copic markers.

Close-up: The punny sentiment
As for the sentiment, I wanted a punny and funny sentiment. Thus, I made up 'Splash Thanks'. Then, the splash of water is stamped on the left and right of the sentiment to give some realistic of water splashing looks.

Finally, a permanent lines are drawn for the frame.

Dimension : 10.16cm x 15.24cm or 4" x 6"
Type : Hotizontal fold
Inlay : Yes

More Papertrey Ink (PTI) Goodies

On 16 February 2015 (Malaysia time), I received Papertrey Ink (PTI) newsletter on their 8th anniversary festivities. First of all and the one I loved and excited about is the special 8th anniversary discount where all the orders placed between 10PM EST on 15 February 2015 through 9:59PM EST on 16 February 2015 will automatically receive 8% off the entire order. There is no order minimum and/or no other requirements.

If you are Papertrey Ink (PTI) fans, you will know that Papertrey Ink (PTI) does not offer any sales or discount for the whole year. However, Papertrey Ink (PTI) is using rewards points system where after an accumulated points, the points can be exchanged into currency value to offset the order price. So far, I have only purchased from Papertrey Ink (PTI) twice and used the point once, from my first order to offset some of my order price. Thus, this 8th anniversary discount of 8% really amazing.

Drips & Dribbles stamp set - Front
After a number of selection and re-selection (due to budget constraints), finally, I decided to have one clear stamp set and a dies. That Drips & Dribbles stamp set has been on my wishlist ever since I laid my eyes on it. Those unexpected splatters are just so charming messy images and so characteristic. It would be perfect match to My Favorite Things (MFT) LLD Perk Up Stamp Set, My Favorite Things (MFT) LLD Coffee Cup Die-namics and Lawn Fawn Love You a Latte Stamp Set which I purchased sometimes ago.

Tag Sale #11 dies
As for the Tag Sale #11 dies, I just love having various tag dies. But for this Tag Sale #11 dies, it is a bit special as it comes with a strap dies which can be used for other things and also I love the layering frame with stitching details. The dies also have this opening cut which allow the tag to have an opening like a door. The value paid for it is just so worth it.

Since the time frame for the 8th anniversary discount is limited, I quickly finalize my order and made my payment. After two (2) weeks plus, these items arrived at my house in a box. Again, as described in my previous post, it is because of their stamp packaging which come in a plastic box inside of a flat plastic.

I hope I get my chance to play with these goodies soon!
