ODOP 10 - A Grateful Card

Hi friends,

The theme for today is using one of these: pattern paper, embellishments, no images, less die cut.
I chose to use the scrap pattern papers. The card becomes very simple...

Here is the result:

I used papers from the pad of For The Record 2 by Lori Whitlock from Echo Park.

The sentiment stamp is from Heidi Swapp. The half black pearls are from Simon Says Stamp. It was a free gift when I bought several stamps and die cuts with its brand. So simple card, but I like it.

And the bird, it's really from the scrap. The same pattern papers with the ones I used on the card. The bird is from Sizzix die cut. The thanks is from Simon Says Stamp, too. It's so cute....It can be used as the table decoration. I had a little time to make one more creation so I made this bird. And moreover, the leftover papers should be immediately used. Or, they will stay forever in its pad..

I hope you enjoy both of them. See you tomorrow...


ODOP - Day 9 - A White and Turquoise Card with Handwriting

Hello friends,

Today I made a very simple card. I just cut a bicycle and a rectangle. The challenge is to use my own handwriting. Woohoooo... It looks like making a signature. You know why? Because, when I wrote the "happy birthday", it should be once and I can't stop in the middle. And.. it took only ONE breath. Lol...

Here is my take.

I used Copic to write on the white Multicolor card stock. I LOOOOVEEE the color.. lol.. 
The bicycle is from Memory Box.

This is the shoot from the front.

And this is from above. You can see the gap between the turquoise card stock and the white rectangle.

What do you think of my handwriting? Lol... Phew...


ODOP Day 8 - Checkered Mini Suitcases

Hi friends,

As I promised you yesterday, today I won't make cards with the checkered motif. I made suitcases. I really longed for making them. The first time I made the suitcase is here. And this was the second time. And this was the third one.

Today I made 3!! Lol.... I was very happy I had time to make them. Here they are:

 The purple suitcase is covered with the purple pattern paper of Secret Garden from Graphic 45. 

This is the look from above. So you can see the how the handles were attached to the suitcases.

The sentiment die cut is from Cuttlebug. I really adore sentiment die cut. I promise you I'll use them more and more. The paper flowers are the ones I bought from my online friends. Again.... I'm still not in the mood to color images. Please, help me... (lol)
Btw, those suitcases will be for sale in ITC Surabaya starting May 10. Be there..

Thanks for visiting..


ODOP 7 - Mini MIlk Carton Box With Legs

Hello friends,

How's life? It's Saturday; and yesterday was Friday, the May Day. It was a holiday here in Indonesia. Then, I could manage to make these two boxes for today's "one day one project". I got the inspiration from here. The tutorial was very clear to follow.

Here are my take:

I made two boxes. That meant I cut 4 mini milk carton. The one on the left is with legs. The one on the right is the original shape without legs. Both of them were covered with washi papers which were adhered to silver papers.

This is the look from above. You can see the opening are tied with twine from The Twinery.

This cute stamp is from Hero Arts. Do you still remember her? It's an old stamp set. I stamped it on the washi paper twice and cut the kimono. I love this technique as well. This way, I didn't need to color. I'm still on in the mood to color images.. lol...

This is the closer look on the paper piecing on the kimono. As you can see, first I stamped on the white paper. After that, as I mentioned, I stamped twice on the washi paper. I stamped again on the white card stock for the head. This time, I HAD TO color. Luckily it was only small part... lol...

Thanks for visiting. See you again tomorrow with something different. Make sure, it won't be a card.. ;D


ODOP Day 6 - Blue Takeout Boxes

Hello friends,

Today the "one day one project" is about something blue. I don't want to make a card. Then I checked all my long die cut from Sizzix. My eyes came to this one: Takeout Box. I wanted to make 2 boxes, to express the blue colors I adore.

Here they are:

The flowers are from StampinUp! punches. They are my favorite flower punches. I made so many flowers in many colors using these 2 punches. The leaves are from Cheery Lynn Designs die cut; and the thanks is from Simon Says Stamp die cut. The handles are mizuhiki chord that I bought from Aileen. Her website is www.origami.com.au. Check it out.

Below are each box in close up:

Here are the two boxes shot from above. Adorable, right? Especially when the background is from #alasfotolipat. 

I really enjoy making something 3D. Moreover, I like the very useful 3D. Come again tomorrow and you will see something more adorable. I promise you..


ODOP Day 5 - The City - A Glam Life

Hi friends,

Here I am, on the fifth day of "One Day One Project". The theme is: The city, for a glamorous life of a celebrity.. It's so much fun, right?
When I read the theme, my mind directly went to the stamp I bought 4 years ago. I used the stamp from Hero Arts. It's also an old one - Citiscapes, produced in 2010.

I used Versamark and stamp on the black card stock once and did the same thing for the half of it.
Then I used the silver embossing powder. I added some star sequins. Then, in the middle of each sequin, I dropped a Diamond Stickles to cover the holes. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things.The black card stock was adhered to a silver card.

Then.... here comes the most difficult thing! Taking the picture so that the sparkling silver buildings protrude. Wow! I never thought it was that hard. For an amateur like me, it's very challenging. I took more than 80 shots. Lol... I tried different ISOs. And finally I have the two above. They are the same photo. The second one was edited for to become lighter. The ambiance was at night. So the card is surrounded by a quite dark light. Below is the card with the biggest ISO, 5000. You can see the card in the light.

Well, I do hope you like my card. Waiting for your comment on how to take picture for the sparkling things.. Thank you..


ODOP Day 4 - Four colors - Always Show Your True Colors

Hello friends,

I don't have any Ombre stamps. How I wish to order those Hero Arts ink pads in SSS. Perhaps later. So I used Versafine ink pads for these colors: vintage sepia, red and purple. The green one was Bamboo Memento. The butterfly on the card and beside the card are from a butterfly cling stamp set of Hero Arts - Butterflies: 3 images. It is an old stamp set. I stamped them with Versamark and embossed them with white embossing powder. Then colored them using the same ink pad. I love how they turned out. I took the design of putting the sentiment on the butterfly from Jennifer McGuire's card idea.

Using a fine brush, I covered those two butterflies with Tsukineko Champaign all purpose ink.  The sentiment is from M. "Always Show Your True Colors".
Oh, I forgot to mention the rectangles. It comes from that famous stamp set of Hero Arts: Texture and Shape. It is very versatile. I used this set so many times, especially when I made the the game boards for my High School students. You can see here and here.

I hope you like the card with 4 colors..


ODOP Day 3 - Flowery

Hi friends,

Today is the  third day for the 'one day one project'. The theme is something with flowers. Yesterday, I visited Monika's blogpost. She was using Jennifer McGuire's technique. I watched her video around two weeks ago, and I was inspired by Monika's cards. I made these cards using that technique.

I used the Floral Funky stencil from My Favorite Things and white Colorbox pigment ink. The shadow should be larger. For this I used fired brick DI. I think I should have used this color in pigment ink. I didn't have one.

Here is the turquoise card.

Well, trying 2 times for the same technique had made me understand how to use the this stencil. The proverb is true: Practice makes perfect. I'm a bit satisfied with the turquoise one. How about you?


ODOP Day 2 - Party Bags

Hi friends,

Here I am on the second day of "one day one project". I still don't want to use any stamps that I need to color. No..not yet...
So, the theme is anything you would do on the party. I decided to make these 3 baskets, as goodie bags on the party. I found the tutorial here.

Here are the baskets.

I am using the StampinUp! Square Latice Textured mbossing folder to emboss each strip of the basket. The letters are from Story Time Studio Calico and the banners are from Hall Pass We R Memory Keeper. The last, the twines are from The Twinery. Finally, the chocolates are from Hersheys. I bought them during my travel to the USA last end of February.

It came to my mind to make 25 baskets for the Farewell Party of Grade 12 at school. Well, I'm still thinking.. Not so sure but I really want to make something to jazz up the night..

Thanks for visiting, my friends...


ODOP Day 1 - Welcome Baby Girl

Hello friends,

A friend of mine, Sylvia is hosting a "one day one project" (known as ODOP) for a month starting today. The theme for today is  welcome baby girl, Zee..
I forced myself to join ODOP, because I really need to get my mojo back. So, here is the card and the frame I managed to make yesterday. They are just simple. So simple... I really need my mojo back..

For the card: I used zig-zag paper from Style Essentials Echo Park, and the baby bodysuits from Allison Krest Webster's Pages. I cut two and covered them with Glossy Accents. The sentiment is from StampinUp!

For the frame: I used Tim Holtz alphabet die cut and Papertreyink alphabet die cut.

These two items will be sent to the coach of Field Commander. Sisi was the FC last year in the Marching Band competition in Yogyakarta, where she won 2  awards for herself. Thanks to this coach. Last Friday, he got a new baby girl. So the theme is so suitable and these two won't stay in my house. That's what I like..


Hexagon Hive Card

Hello friends,

As usual, Tuesday late afternoon, I'm always all alone at home. Kids are in church practicing the choir and music ensemble. So, I promised myself early this morning to make something using the new tool. I used Stampin Up! Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die cut. Actually, my mojo hasn't come back yet. I have no idea what to make using this die cut. Then, I searched through the pinterest, and I found this blog. I made the same design with different color. I used my favorite color: turquoise.
This is the result:

I embossed the turquoise cardstock with Dot Matrix from Sizzix. The dotted fuschia is from Kaiser Craft. The sentiment stamp is from Heidi Swapp. And... the newest thing is the "Alas Foto Lipat".  This one is number 24. It was created by Ria. Fabulous..

Well, at least I made something today. Thank you for visiting...
