Birthday Cards

This late afternoon, I finished three birthday cards. One is for my Dd's friend, and the other two will just stay in the gallery.

This card is following the Card Positioning System Challenge 164. Here is the sketch:

This is my take on the sketch:

And the second card is followint the sketch from Card Patterns Sketch # 61 :

And this is my take on that sketch:

The last one is for the challenge by Cupcake Craft Challenge 88 Don't Be Square. So, I decided to make a small card, using my Blossom Nestie. Just a simple one, embossed it with the flowers, attached the Anya image and the sentiment.

Thinking Of You

Good day, everybody.... This morning, I tried to make this card with the three color combo : blue, green and yellow. Here is my take.

I enter this card to join :
1. Dogi Doodle Shop's Best Challenge # 4, with the color challenge : Blue, Green, Yellow. What great DT takes there... Take a look.

2. Sketch Saturday Week #100, with the sketch below, a simple one.

3. The Magic Is In The Air , with this lovely free digi image. Nina, I love this Easter Lilies... I printed several times and colored them in so many colors...

Thinking Of You - Two Cats

Just finished this card this noon time. I enter this to join the Stretch n Bubbles Challenge # 4. You can always find free digi every Wednesday here. This time is the cat. Love the digi cat. I printed them in the patterned papers and also in the white papers to get the paws.
This is the sketch given :
And this is my take on the sketch using the digi.

Actually I already printed another little cat to be put near the tail of the bigger cat. But, when I put him there, it looked too crowded, so, I keep him for the latter card.

Happy Mother's Day (2 & 3)

As I ever said, if there is number 1, there will be number 2, etc. So, here they are, the "Happy Mother's Day" cards number 2 & 3.

I entered these two cards to join Hero Arts Challenge the second round this month. I used HA Digi Vintage Women. Love this digi. I could cropped as I wished. And that's all for the challenge...

This is the second card. I love the green dotted ribbon. A new one in my gallery.

This is the third card. I pleated the ribbon. This is my first attempt in pleating.. Wow... I added the punched borders.

These two cards had been posted to Hero Arts Pool here and here...

Hero Arts April Challenge

Today I made two cards for Hero Arts April challenge. The theme is Home/Mother's Day. Love stamping with the Row of Houses.... I inked the stamp with 6 colors of Zig brushes. Love the result. The white cardstock was cloud stamped with the shadow ink, then I die cut with the nestability. I also adore these three-girl stamps. Love them..really love them. It seems to me that they represent my DDs. The third girl was not adhered to the card. She was there just for "Action..!!"... LOL... I used 6 kinds of Hero Arts stamps for this card.

Then I made the second card. I printed the digi image twice. The second one was not this vibrant. I cut it along the image, then I masked the first image with the second one. Then, I stamped the Japanese writing. I used Tim Holtz Distress ink.

This two cards are all in my Flickr Photostream and already posted in Hero Arts Pool, here and here....

Happy Day

This is a belated birthday card for my friend. We met some days ago and felt touched with what she shared, so I decided to send her this birthday card, one day late.... Hope Neneng enjoys this card.... She loves everything Japan...

I combined Anya and Hero Arts stamps. Embossed the card base with Birthday folder

TMITA 4x4 card base

Wow.. this is my fifth card today... Catching all challenges, Dwita??? LOL...
It's been quite some time that I don't join any challenges in TMITA (There's Magic In The Air).

This time the recipe is :
1. any Paper Cupcake image (ups, I only have the free ones..)
2. a 4x4 size card base ( well, this is the first time using this measurement..)
3. 1 ribbon (no problem)
4. 1 single type of embellishment (I chose a button, though I hardly tried not to use the punched leaves)
5. 1 stamped/printed sentiment (I prefer to print the words I long to wish..)
6. No patterned papers (wow..quite difficult, so I just stamped the cardstock with green leaves..)

So, this is my take on that recipe:

Hope it meets the recipe...

1 Card, 3 challenges

Good afternoon, everybody. It seems that today i am really in the mood of making cards. This is my fourth card today. And this time, not fuschia, but all brown. I have this stamp image colored some time ago, and it's time to use it.

This card is my take on the sketch by Friday Sketchers, Sketch 99 :

I enter this card for Just Magnolia Week 52 : Anything Goes. And also to enter PaperPlay Challenges Week 16 : No Patterned Papers.

Thanks for looking ..

3 cards, 3 challenges

I don't know, why at the meantime, I really adore Fuschia..., in cardstock, in marker.... My eyes always fall to anything with that pretty color. I even have double Fuschia Copic.. (LOL)..

First take is for Card Patterns Sketch 60. It's been quite long time that I don't join challenges from Card Patterns. This card is for Eva, my friend. I combined 2 Anya stamps: Stella and Geisha. Not on the fuschia cardstock, a bit nuance of it...

This my take on that sketch:

I combined the stamps, based on the card given by Vera Rhuhay. She gave me when I met her last Wednesday night, in Surabaya, her home town. This is her card :

Second, I enter the following card for Stretch N' Bubbles Sketch Challenge 3. Love this blog with pretty free digi image and the sketch..This is my take on that sketch:
The third one, I enter CPS 163. It's been also long time that I don't join this challenge.

This is my take on the sketch:Hero Arts Stamps, Nestabilities, Fiskars Punch, Copic markers. (already sold just now in my gallery)

Thanks for looking..


Hope your day is full of sunshine

Just got lots of stamp images of TGF. And I really enjoyed coloring each of them.
This card will be sent to one of my friends. I will enclose some stamp images, too, to her.

I enter this card to join Digi Doodle Shop's Best Spring Time Sketch Challenge 3.
Hope it's not too late.

Happy Mother's Day (1)

Reading at the title, you'll think there will be more Mother's Day cards. You are right... As May is the month to celebrate the day, I'm sure I will make 2 or 3 more cards for my beloved ladies...

In this card, I used the stamp image (digi stamp) from Stretch and Bubbles Blog.

Colored the chicks with Copic Markers. The sentiment was printed from the computer.

I enter this card to join SNB Challenge.

Update: This card won the challenge.


Great Sista

Made this for my sister on her birthday on April 11, 2010. This is the second card for her, which I finally decided to give this one...(LOL).. She is a piano teacher. And when I searched my pp, I found this musical paper.. Ow, I was glad, and used it here. Well, from five siblings, she is the only one who continued learning piano until the Teaching Preparation and has been a piano teacher for more than 14 years. Proud of her...

The Tilda image was a gift from Maryann, colored with Copic; Punches from Fiskars; Butterfly digi stamp from Hero Arts

I enter this card for Just Magnolia Week 50: Pinch It Out challenge. I was inspired by the DT Donalda's card... So pretty in red.

Thanks for looking..

Love Begins From Home

I'll visit my Mom tomorrow evening (Sunday, April 11, 2010), as it is my sista's birthday as well. I need to let my Mom know how I love her and the love she showers me from time to time. Indeed, that's the her love that I inherits from her. So, I made this card for her.

Start Again - Digi Doodle Challenge

Wow... it's been more than a month that I didn't post anything here.
Teaching craft from town to town really occupied me and made me away from my craft room.
Tonight, I just finished starting again, stamping again. I made 30 Biblemarkers for the ladies in the Praise & Worship where I belong. As the youngest among all, I sometimes give them something. So, these tags are for them for the Easter celebration, Tuesday, April 6.

I used 5 flower stamps. Four Hero Arts flower stamps and one Penny Black flower stamp.

Here they are.
The sentiment "Selamat Paskah" means "Happy Easter".

I enter this creation to Digi Doodle Easter/Spring challenge. My friends, Monika Reeck and Vera, are ones of their newest DT. Congrats to you.
