Hello Ribbon

Ahh, the tiredness made me do some mistakes in writing the challenges and the title of the post in the previous post...

This is the card I made before really going to bed. I used the PI stamp, colored with Copic markers. The ribbon is one of the newest ribbons I just have.


Thanks for looking, friends...

Hello Swirl

Hello friends,

I'm back from the town that I love most, Balikpapan, East Borneo... I joined the bazaar held by the Expats' Wives there, visited the house I occupied years ago, visited the campus where I taught 5 years ago, and of course, ate favorite food. I really enjoyed my time there.

Some quilling cards of my friend were sold out. Some of my vintage and Christmas cards were sold either. Here is the pic of my table.

And this is the card I made. The stamp is from PI. Well, not a good pic to focus on the hair. The hair was colored with Popcorn marker, a black one, then heated. It is popped.

Thanks for looking, friends...


Joy To All - Glossy and Crackle addiction

Dear friends,

From the title I think you can guess that I am addicted to these two kinds of liquid. Yes... Look at the card below..

Look at the hat below. The white part was colored with Popcorn Marker. It was popped. So good. Then I applied the Crackle Accent. Not too bad...
And for the snowflake below, I applied Glossy Accent to make it shiny.

Love applying these two kinds of liquid on any embellishments I added on my cards...

Thanks for looking.


Merry Wishes

Hi friends,

Been away for a while. I've made 26 cards with Pure Innocence stamps. They include this Christmas card. Lovely image, isn't it? And the flower, do you know where the paper came from? Well, I recycled the packaging paper. The inside of the packaging paper has this polkadot pattern. So, I didn't throw the paper but kept it and made some flowers with this paper. Lovely
. The green lace is the newest lace I have right now. In the scrapbook store in the mall, I saw it was on sale for quite expensive price. I bought the similar lace with so cheap price but the quality is the same, in the retailer shop. Love it, since this green is my fave green.

Image was colored with Copic markers, and the white 'fur' on the hat was given l'il Popcorn marker

Have you made your Christmas cards yet?

PS: I have never thrown away the packaging papers and invitation envelopes as they can be recycled and turn into beautiful embellishments.

Merry Christmas To You

Hello friends,

This late afternoon, I managed myself to make a quick card. No..no.., I don't have MS board nor Scor Pal, to make the embossed grids on the white cardstock. I just happen to have a paper trimmer that has a surface to do this embossing.
Love the result. This surface has made me easier to make a fold on everything. Do I still need MS Board? Badly...LOL...

Look at the poinsettia. Isn't it gorgeous? And the leaves behind the poinsettia, wow.. so adorable, I think.. If you wish to buy some of them, just leave your comment here or you can go here.

I enter this to join Cute Card Thursday: Anything Goes and One Stop Craft Challenge 105: Embossing. And also the one in Flickr, in Die Cut Divas.
And one more for the challenge that I just found out: Just Add Ink : #43 Just Add Christmas.

For The Love Of Music Parade

Hello friends,

Who doesn't like music? Who doesn't like crafts magazine? Who likes both of them? Me! Me! Me!..LOL. Yes!! The Papercrafts magazine showcased all the fabulous cards in the November/December 2010 issue. Love all the details on it. And the article about "For The Love of Music" really really inspired me to make some cards. Music on cards!! Wow!!

I imitated 2 cards with the stuffs I have on my stash. Making these cards really bring me enjoyment. I possess many new stuffs, so I tried to use them on my cards. I used Glimmer Mist and Versamark. Two adorable things that I can't stop using..

First is this one. It was on the magazine cover. This is how it looks on the cover:

made by Kelly Marie Alvarez

And this is mine:

And this is another one with the bird on it. This one in in the magazine:

made by Clouds Shadler
And this is mine:

I also made another two cards.

It's so glad to have such adorable magazine on hands and try to make the similar ones. That's the reason the magazine has been published, right?

Thanks for looking, friends...

PS.: The cards I made here are all for personal use. Hope the original designer don't mind.


Mini Meet with Card Lovers

Hai friends,

Last Saturday, I went to Jakarta to meet my fellows in making cards. We were in Rina Damay's place in Sudirman area. She has a wonderful place. Moreover, she has a walking closet which are full of.......stamps!! Also ink pads (complete Ranger Distress Ink Pads), Stickles, etc., etc. It's a real WOW!!! It was exactly a typical time of ladies who met together. Did we make cards? Not really!! LOL.

We did stamp a lot, punch a lot, read Magnolia mags, share where to buy these and those. And most of all, we ate a lot. At the end, we exchanged goodies. Wowohoo.. The pics will tell you what we've been doing.... Enjoy..

We are Hero Arts stamp lovers
We really adore TILDA from Magnolia
We are eaters, as well..LOL

We are Cuttlebug lovers, too
We love all the food
We love the goodies that we exchanged
Thanks, pals, for this togetherness... Love this friendship so much.

A Card of CCC

Hello friends,

This is a card from Anita Recksiedler, Canada. It's from September CCC. Thanks so much, Anita. Your card is so adorable. Yours confirmed me to buy Glossy Accent...LOL. So sorry, that I received this way. The paper was a bit loosing the image. Touched by water? And the envelope was opened and sealed with the cellotape. Well, that's okay with me. Look at the stamp, the flower on it is so beautiful. I treasure this all.

Thanks for looking, friends.
