Spotlight On...Cecilia Hsieh!


We are proud to bring you our next Spotlight On...Cecilia Hsieh!  Cecilia caught our attention with her lovely entries in our challenges like this pretty card from our last The Gossip Column challenge HERE.  Her clean and simple aesthetic allows the color and/or pattern she uses to really make a great impact.

Wait until you see the awesome projects she's made will see Cecilia shine!       

About Me (Cecilia Hsieh)

Hi Everybody! First of all, thank you to Winnie and Walter for asking me to be part of their blogpost! 

My name is Cecilia from Cecilia's Cards and I’m from Melbourne, Australia. I’m a Scientist during the day and Crafter at night.  I’ve been blogging since March 2012 and have met a lot of virtual as well as real life crafting friends during this time. My crafting journey have started at a very young age and paper craft is something that I’ve always gone back to. I have knitted, painted on ceramics, painted, sewed and have even tried scrapbooking. A lot of the projects I have made are in the hands of my friends and relatives. My card making style has evolved over the years and I am really comfortable with what I make now. I have had a few cards published in three magazines and have won a several online crafting challenges. This is where Julie and Shay found me – submitting madly to some of W&W challenges! I love the W&W stamps, and love using them in a lot of my projects.

Projects – Black and White Challenge

My first card is made with my newly acquired Winnie and Walter In Bloom: Addie’s Garden. I love the versatility of the flowers in this set. I white embossed a flower on black cardstock and fussy cut the flower. The background is stamped with the various stamps from the set. The sentiment is from The Big, the Bold, and the Happy stamp set using the ‘In a Word: Happy’ Cutaway. The ‘Happy’ die is layered with 3 layers of black cardstock. The ‘birthday’ was stamped in red just to give it a hint of colour. The white embossed flower was mounted on dimensional foam. Lastly, some pearls were added to the card to finish it off.

My second card was made with the The Party and Scenery: The Party Hangover stamp sets. Again one image was white embossed on black cardstock and mounted on dimensional foam. The ‘happy’ diecut  was layered with just black cardstock with a bit of red behind the diecuts. I added some droplets to the card to finish it off.

Thank you Shay and Julie for the Spotlight. Pop back next week for two more black and white projects to share!
