Happy Birthday Stella

Hi friends,

I made some cards yesterday and it's time to upload it one by one..LOL...
I used the CB machine to shape the card. I embossed the white cardstock. The sentiment is a digital stamp from Paulette from Creative With TLC that you can find here. Then I punched each corner. I left the sentiment just the way it is, without coloring it. I colored the image using the technique from Color Me Copic blog here. Indeed, still need more practice.

I enter this card to join Digi Doodle Shop's Best Challenge # 18 : Punch or Cut Me.

Oops.. almost forget to enter this into The Crazy Challenge: All About Birthdays and Mami Doodles Challenge 7: Anything Goes.

Supplies: Stella stamp from TGF; Copic Sketch markers.

Thanks for looking..


Happy Birthday in Outlines

Hi friends,

I did have some hours spent on my craft table this afternoon. I managed to make three cards as choices for the next month DT (pssst..wait for the recipe next August 1..).

Then, I tried to make the one that kept playing on my mind: using outline stamps. Oh boy, it's not as easy as I thought. The dew drop chalk ink didn't work out so well. So, again, I used my fave, those Zig brushes. They didn't even come better.. (well, blame it on the brush..LOL). Or maybe the Poly clear can't go with these brushes..(now blame it on the stamp..LOL).. This card is my fifth attempt...Haha.. So here is the result:

I enter this card to join two challenges: Simplicity OLW 14: Square Outlines and PaperPlay Challenges Week 30: Anything Goes.

Supplies: Hero Arts stamps Delicate Blossoms and Live It Up; Zig brushes

Happy Birthday in Grey and Black

Hi friends,

It's Sunday afternoon. I just finished making some stamping for my account in Multiply. Then I remember the first challenge held by Color Me Copic blog. I specially went to Jakarta to buy some more Copic Sketch Markers: C1, C3 and C5. I already have C7 and C9 and of cou
rse, the Colorless Blender. I love the tutorial and just tried this technique. This is the card. I use the sketch from Card Pattern Sketch 74.

And this is the closer look on the image colored with Copic Sketch Markers C1, C3, C5 and C7.

I am a bit satisfied with the result, as I NEVER did this technique.. LOL. So, this is the first time for me coloring this way and I think I need more practice. Please give me feedback on the way I colored this image.

I also enter this to join Caardvarks... For the first time joining its challenge.

Supplies: Stamp: Paul from Roll Call of TGF; some folder of Provo Craft.

Thanks for looking, and waiting for your feedback...


Guy Thing

Hi crafters,

Meet again.. It's been a week that I was away to Jakarta to organize the funeral of my uncle. My sista n her hubby and me were really occupied organizing all the things from A to Z for the funeral. Thank God that everything went soooo well, including the traditional event. And now, on Saturday afternoon, I'm back at my craft table creating this card.

I have several digi stamps from Digi Doodle Shop. Judy n her mom are very keen on these digis. Check their store here. I used one of the digis that I bought via my friend. The oval "Guy Thing" digi is from Create With TLC. Paulette is so clever and so generous with so many freebies in her blog here. I colored with Copic markers in three kinds of blues. I'm still learning how to color using Copic Sketch Markers which is taught in Color Me Copic blog here.

I enter this card for three challenges:

Paperplay Challenges Week 29: Color Combo of Blue and Cream
Digi Doodle Shop's Best: Anything Goes
Crazy Challenges: Boys will be boys

Thanks for looking and happy weekend..

(PS. I just noticed that this card had been uploaded by Paulette in her blog here. Thanks so much, Paulette..)


Get Well Soon Card - 3 challenges

Hello everyone,

At the end of this afternoon, I managed to make one card for the challenges. Well, before that, I made a tutorial in my Multiply account. The tutorial was about making handmade flowers on the cards. You can check here.

The first challenge for this card is from DDSB Challenge 16: use scraps. I love the olive green cardstock. So, I kept whatever leftover of it. I wanted to cut with Label 8, but it was not enough. C'est pas grave, je pense... LOL.. The small 4 white papers were inserted between the white and the olive green cardstocks. The butterfly was punched from the leftover from the white card I made the other day. I used the digital stamp from their store: Vintage Bonnet. (I bought it via my friend since I don't have any CC..)

The second challenge is for Card Positioning System 175 with the sketch. So, here is my take on the sketch.

The closer look on the image:

The third challenge is for Incy Wincy Design Challenge 50 : Distress It. I distressed the edges of white and olive green cardstocks. I applied Distress ink on the white one. The edges of the green was given ivory ink.

I used Copic markers to color the digi stamp. I was trying to color using the technique given in Colormecopic blog. Well, not good in photographing..LOL...

That's for today. Hope to meet you again.

Thanks for looking.. and happy weekend..


Hibiscus - OLW SImplicity

Hello friends,

What a morning! I started my day with a chocolate milk and later ended up in front of my laptop, looking for Simplicity blog. And...found the challenge is the one with my most favorite technique... Ahay...: some form of watercolor. Love it so much. And I was inspired not to make only one but five. I'm showing only four, because the other one got a little 'accident'...LOL. I automatically grabbed my most favorite stamp, the Hibiscus. I love this kind of flowers. I do have some pots of this flower in various colors. So much in love with Hibiscus.. See here for your knowledge about my love for Hibiscus.

Here are the cards I made.

I used Penny Black Stamp, my magic ZIG brushes and the fabulous Ranger Mini Mister to spray the water. The sentiments are from Hero Arts.

Thanks for looking, my friends. Have a pleasant day.


Have A Glorious Day Cards and A Square one

Hello friends,

Nice to meet you again. Today I had a chance to make some cards. One is for the challenge and the other two are for the baptized babies. I used some punches. Oh, well... It's so glad to come back to punches. They were blinking at me and asking me to be used. White on white seems very pure and clean.

And the card below is also to join Cuttlebug Challenge Be Inspired #92 In The Garden.

The following card wazs made to join the Crazy Challenge with the theme: It's Hip To Be Square.
I used my new stamp from The Greeting Farm. I love this stamp, as the girl is holding a guitar. It reminds me of my Dd who takes guitar course right now. The squares were embossed with CB machine. I embossed on light green and pink papers, cut them and adhered on accordance embossed square on the white card.

Thanks for looking, friends.

Love these all new stamps. Finally, I could manage my wallet to have these beautiful stamps. The dreams have come true. Thanks to Fika and Eva for making this happen.

Happy Independence Day, America - Cook Up A Card July Recipe

Well...well... July has come around. That means the school vacation is on the way. Yes, we have been having weekend vacarion in the hot spring, 2 hours by car from my town to Central Java. It is called Guci. Luckily, it's not called Gucci... LOL..

Before continuing another escape with a big family of my Mom, I had this very little chance to make this card with the recipe from Cook Up A Card. Susie gives the recipe:
3 colors
2 patterned papers
1 boat.

It took me some time to think, how to combine a boat and the patterned papers. So, here is my take.

The sentiment is a freebie from Creative with TLC. The boat is a freebie from Digital Two For Tuesday. Wowowow.. They always give very good freebies. Good jobs for Paulette and Cora. Thanks for Alison for showing all freebies in her blog here. The bird is a stamp from Hero Arts. The sentiment seems so suitable for this colors recipe. And the boat, I presumed that it was Columbus who traveled around the world (the pp below) and finally found America continent... LOL..

Happy 4th July, my American friends...

And..this card has been uploaded in Create With TLC here.Thanks, Paulette...

Ok, peeps, happy school vacation with the children. See you then...

Thanks for looking.
